Had a nasty electrical storm roll through last night while I was asleep. Power flickered badly multiple times according to my gf, then pc stayed off when other items came back on. Hitting the power button gets no response at all - no lights on case or motherboard, no fans, etc. I’ve tried unplugging and replugging the power supply cable, flipping its switch, and also just waiting and trying again.
I can short the 24-pin to turn the power supply on directly; it comes on no problem. However, I can’t short the power switch jumpers on the motherboard, so that’s what I’m leaning towards as the dead part. I think a dead CPU would at least still get some minor mobo lights before failing to POST.
Any other troubleshooting I’m forgetting? Think I’ve got a 7600K and whatever generation ASUS in there.
