    Perfect.

    In your situation there are various things that can be bad.

    First thing I would check would be the CPU. I would remove the Heatsink and verify that it was placed on the CPU correctly as they socket A heatsinks are keyed to fit onla certain way. They will go on the wrong way too, but that usually ends up in a dead CPU. If u verify that the CPU is indeed seated correctly, I would check the power supply to make sure that it functions properly. To do this u will need either a second power supply, or a motherboard that u know will work. The k7s5a dosent really take a lot of power so a 300w psu should be quite adequate for its needs.

    If u can't post after that, then look at the motherboard. Take it back to the place u bought it and tell them u think its dead and have them test it.

    I would suggest that it more than likely your CPU that is causing the issues.
