Default One weird problem, promise to make to think.

O.k. someone want me to fix their computer. They say the lighting struck it or something. But here is what i my descrition of it. The computer will not boot and no it is not the power supply. Because i trade the power supply on another computer it work fine and beside the green light on the motherboard is on. I think there is 2 possibility. One the motherboard is fly or the button cable is fly up. Am i right. Need help>
