Unhappy motherboard/video/power supply not work after rain and thunder storm?

I have a problem in which I read and search online already.

Last night we have a hard rain and thunder storm. The electicity went off and I had to replace new fuse. I was on the computer before the electicity went off. By the time I return back to my room, I was tired and just went to bed. I didn't check my computer.

This morning, I checked and I turn it on. Everything seems to work. Everything except two problems. One is there is no video activity (nothing shows on the monitor screen). Two, there is no sound. The speakers are still connected to the computer. If it had just been a video card problem, wouldn't there be the sound of window startup?

So I can only possibly based upon these things that it may be a motherboard issue or a power supply. However I don't know much about computers and it can just be a video card problem. What can it be?

Please help me work on this?!?

See if there is a reset switch on your power supply.
Start by changing out your power supply and work from there.
I had a surge that cooked my power supply and motherboard.
The first surge cooked my protected power strip. The second one did my PC in.
Those surge protectors still work after being cooked.

I would suggest if you have a video card to unplug your monitor from that and plug it into your on-board video display adapter.
