take out the battery and unplug the power from the laptop.
Press the power button (to discharge the capacitors.)
Plug in the power cable.
Press the power button and see if it boots.

Disconnect the power supply and take out the battery. Now with no power at all, push and hold the power button down for 5 seconds. Install the battery and see if boots.

First, you should edit your original post to remove your e-mail address. That is a sure way to get tons of SPAM.

Second, were you connected directly into a power outlet or into a surge suppressor when the lightening strike occurred? Did the power go out?

Try removing the battery and with the power supply attached, attempt to power it on.

Please clarify.
