Same thing happened to me last year. A lighting bolt hit the transformer outside causing an electronic surge. Literally felt the static charge. Luckily for me I had insurance.
After replacing my psu and motherboard I found my modem fried also. How fun. Lesson learned power protectors do not always work.
I'm sorry to say your motherboard might be dead. Some warranty's and insurance cover it and others don't.
