Unhappy have i killed my motherboard?

hi all,
im new

right my problem is, i bought a new motherboard (asus a7v8x-x) evenualy got it running (had to but all new parts) and now it doesnt work, well not anymore.
once i got it running i formatted it and installed xp home edition, after that it was working perfectly for about 18 hours untill my sister went on it and it crashed. she tryed reseting it and the frozen screen was still there, so she held in the power button and it still wouldnt turn off. so it was turned off at the plug, then turned back on and all that was displayed was 'no connection' on the monitor.
i tryed to fix it, make sure everything was inserted correctly, etc and it still displayed 'no connection'
so i put the old motherboard in and used all the same parts and it worked perfeclty, so none of the parts were faulty. i can only assume it was the motherboard that had broke somehow?
went the new asus motherboard was in and turned one, it sounded as if everything was booting up but then the hdd just stops or doesnt finish booting? the 'no connection' goes for a second then comes back, theres the usual beep aswell when its started (i think)
the cd drive lights come on so does the power light on the motherboard.
i have no idea what the problem could be.
im new to pcs and this was my first project, trying to build a new pc, but now that ive got most of the parts the motherboard dies.
so what should i do guys (and gals)
