T2984 eMachines Wont turn on

Suddenly an eMachines T2984 computer wont turn on for a client. They left it on for 3 days while on vacation, we had a few storms with lightning. They also had 2 other PCs connected to same power supply, they are still working fine.

I replaced the power supply in the eMachines T2984 and have seen a green led on the motherboard turn ON.. With the original PSU nothing turns on the motherboard. However, with the new power supply unit installed, a green LED light turn is active on the motherboard but computer will still not turn on when I press the front button.
What other things can I troubleshoot to determine whats wrong? Below are links to machine and green LED light on motherboard.

The motherboard is an Intel Intel D845EPI/D845GVSR (You can find them on ebay for picture)

The motherboard could have fried during power issue. Try remove cmos battery out of the mobo for few minutes, also reseat the memory.
>>  What other things can I troubleshoot to determine whats wrong?   <<   try this :
disconnect all devices, and start with minimum  : mobo + cpu + 1 ram stick, video card and PS.  --> display? if yes, one of the disconnected devices is bad, add them 1 by 1; if No, one of the connected is bad, swap ram, video card, or power supply (test if it is ok)
you can also test devices on another working pc.
