Default UPDATE: Computer won't turn off

Hey, first post here, and i'm having some trouble putting together a computer for my mother. I just got back from college for break and i go to put this thing together, second mobo this time(Asus A7V8X-X), after sending the first back. So I put in the CPU and the memory and plug it all in , and turn it on. It gets power, but nothing happens on the monitor. I goto turn it off, and now the on/off button will not turn off the computer.

At first the computer would shut down 6 seconds after booting, but after i applied thermalpaste it stays on.

If this helps:

AMD Athlon XP 2100+ with an
Asus A7V8X-X motherboard
2x512 DDR PC 2700
Radeon Vid Card(too lazy to go see which, its like 8500 or something)

Can anyone please help me, as I would like to have this done before going back to school this friday.

I got the computer booting. Thanks
