ibook dead after Power Surge

hello!
a friend of mine has a ibook G4 1.42ghz, the computer never had the logic board issues with the video card, anyway , the other night there was a power surge, and the computer does not want to start up again, i tried the reseting the PMU and video ram and nothing, when he plug its the ring gets green so im confused if its the logic board fried or the DC board, how could i know?
what other thing can i do to try bring it back to life?

thanks!
