i,d suggest that the power cut may have been a surge or spike.
This May have blown your power pack, and caused possible motherboard Damage.
** Did you use the same lead for the PSU** and have you checked the (main fuse in the Plug ? )
If the monitor light remains orange, this is a possible graphics card fault, or driver that is not allowing the monitor to come out of standby mode. You could try installing a different graphics card, or swapping the monitor cable to the on-board graphics card if it has 1.
If none of the above works, assume the motherboard has suffered damage.
You tried two different video cards and you still don't have any video. But everything else works fine. Have you tried the video cards in other slots? Take out all the other cards, like modem card, etc. If you have two memory chips, take one out. Now try it. If none of this works It maybe the monitor. Make sure it has power to it.
