If you are replacing the power supply and it has 4 pin 12v conector and your motherboard doesn't, just disregard the 4 pin plug. The 20 pin conector will supply sufficient power for the processor. Many of the older motherboards did not have a separate 12v supply for the processor.
Try a different make of disc, if same uninstal and re-install burning software.
If you think the cd rom maybe has a driver problem, check this link to and try solution No.2 to try and solve.
Is it possible for you to check the power supply unit, as it could still show its powering the board but is incapable of powering all the other components.
I am surprised you managed to get hold of a AMD Athlon (Socket 7 or A) motherboard, they are old hat know as the AMD Sempron in the successor to your processor.
These are only about £15.00 and probably a 500W one would be better than the 350W one your PC probably has.
If it's not the PSU then you are looking at a processor fault,again only about £30.00 with the heat sink and fan.
