Question Is this motherboard dead?

I'm fixing up an old computer for my youngest grandson. It was my son's and quit working when lightning fried his external dsl modem.

First time I turned it on it booted fine. Next time, nothing. I removed the modem and network card, still nothing. I found that the connection for the power button was disconnected and reconnected it.

The computer now powers up, but no picture, no lights on keyboard and no beeps at startup. The case fan and processor fan are on and the lights on the case are on.

I swapped out the video card with a known working one and still nothing. I also removed and reseated the ram and tried booting up with floppy drive and cdrom drives disconnected.

Its a P III 650, Abit BH6 motherboard, 128 mb ram, AGP video card running Windows 98SE.

Any ideas as to what else I could try or do I just replace the motherboard?

Thanks for any help.

Sounds like the Power Supply failed.
