If you can get into the BIOS then your computer is working. The most likely fault is the HDD settings make sure you try with AHCI selected as well as with any other settings. You don't say if the HDD is showing in the BIOS. Check all of your connections are good and, especially your drive connections. Make sure the Boot priority is Optical drive before HDD.

CPU Installation Procedures for Socket AM2
1. Please turn off the power and unplug the power cord before
installing the CPU.
2. Pull the lever sideways away from the socket. Make sure to raise
the lever up to a 90-degree angle.
3. Look for the gold arrow on the CPU. The CPU can only fit in the
correct orientation. Lower the CPU down onto the socket.
4. If the CPU is correctly installed, the pins should be completely embedded into the socket and
can not be seen. Please note that any violation of the correct installation procedures may
cause permanent damages to your mainboard.
5. Press the CPU down firmly into the socket and close the lever. As the CPU is likely to move
while the lever is being closed, always close the lever with your fingers pressing tightly on top
of the CPU to make sure the CPU is properly and completely embedded into the socket.
Installing the CPU Cooler
1. Position the cooling set onto the retention mechanism.
Hook one end of the clip to hook first.
2. Then press down the other end of the clip to fasten the
cooling set on the top of the retention mechanism.
Locate the Fix Lever and lift up it.
3. Fasten down the lever.
4. Attach the CPU Fan cable to the CPU fan connector on

Hello elscomputers: If you are sure that there is no other issue with the motherboard -- It was working before the CPU Fan/Heatsink stopped working. Other than making sure that it is correctly connected as shown below -- attached to Pin 1 with all three pins connected (not off to the side by one pin), you can assume it's bad (they do wear out). The cost of a new cooler is pretty minimal and I would just replace it. Good Luck and Thanks for inquiring at Fix Ya. Mikeywaf
Possibly Ram, try and see if removing and replacing helps Other causes may be voltage issues ( check the bios and see what the various rails are telling you) eg: there should be readings for 12 volts 5 volts and 3 volts, if any are + or - by 10%, there is an issue with the voltge controller. You might want to try a replacement PSU?
After this.. bad video ( check by installing a video card) Temperature warnings ( check in bios to see under PC health status) what the cpu and board temps are running at, if above 70 degrees...overheating issue or more likely at start up, board thinks that the CPU fan is not running fast enough or not working. If fan IS working, you have a problem with the CPU fan sensor, will need to replace mobo
Check the fans in your pc, it sounds like at least one of them isent working properly and your pc gets overheated. When a pc going to warm it gets really slow and hangs.
My guess is that the CPU-fan dosent work properly and your CPU gets overheated, but check all the fans to be sure. The CPU fan runs cantantly, check so it dosent stop now and then.
Check the speed of the fan in the BIOS and set it lower, although 58-63c is alright for a CPU (P4 is rated to go up to 70c) you might want to make sure that you have good air flow in your case to make sure the CPU doesn't overheat.
Usually you can find the fan control in the Advanced section of the BIOS.
You'll also want to check the specs of the fan that you have installed as that will tell you how loud it's supposed to be. You might have to get another fan with lower decibels if you want it to be quieter.
