So I just built a new computer 4 days ago. Today we had a small storm and our house got hit. Everything is fine expect except for my computer and the internet. All my monitors, keyboard, and mouse work fine. But now my computer won't turn on. I have a aorus z690 pro DDR5 with a 12700k cpu and a fractal 760w psu. When I plug it in and there's power, my MB has a red power LED lit but nothing else turns on ?
 
So I took the mobo out and there are no signs of damage
I understand you are frustrated. Surge damage won't always show (black marks) like people think it would etc. Your only option is to test each part to see what is good and bad. There is nothing else I can advise or tell you to do at this point. If you do not have a way to test these items in a diffrent system I would advise to find a reputable PC repair/sales shop near you. Dear lord don't take it to Bestbuy lol.

I had a friend who helped me and he says the mobo is *. Sorry for bothering. Also thanks for the help. Yea I'm frustrated just because I only built it 4 days ago and the chances of that happens are so very low. I won't be taking it in to best buy lol I don't even have one close by. BTW on the mobo power switch led was on but the display next to it doesn't turn on anymore so that's how my friend knew it was *. So like both you and him said I'll just insurance claim it all and build it again

If there is a lightning strike nearby and the machine is connected in any way all bets are off.

Anything and everything could be bad.
