A lightening strike!!!!!! The power surge from a strike could have blown the computer's motherboard and processor. Did you have any surge protection and was the computer on at the time? chances are the computers fried.
There is one last thing you can do, that is remove the side panel from the desktop so you can see the motherboard, you will see a battery like this >>When I turn on my computer nothing happens but the - ecb2000.jpg. Near to the battery you will see a plastic "jumper" this will reset the cmos if you move it to the other position, turn the pc on, if nothing happens the cmos has been cleared, put the jumper back in its original position and start the computer again, if you still get nothing them some if not all the components inside the computer has been fried.

Good luck

Flashing green light on graphics card and power wont turn on


a green light ain't nothing wrong with, red it probs with the card.
So in fact this has noting to do with your graphic card.... It's your motherboard.
Can you remove your graphic card and plug your screen in the onboard plug,. I forgot to tell to turn off power , before you begin. So not only turn off the powerswitch, then there's still current, pull out the powerplug, remove your asuscard and plug in a manual pcboard and manual mouse. If done, tell me what happens when you boot, nothing. are you able to use bios????

Getting power but wont boot up or anything


pull out everything in the computer except what's required to boot...so any pci cards or video cards (if you have onboard video). you can also try pulling out the ram (while unpowered AND unplugged) and then booting to hear beeps...if you pull the ram out and the computer doesnt make a sound, its probably a bad motherboard and needs to be replaced. if you hear beeps, try replacing the ram or disconnecting other parts...like harddrives, optical drives, modems and what not.
