Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

Need the pin assignments for the mother board

On most motherboards the front panel connections are printed in the connectors on the motherboard. When you connect the various LED indicators and when you power up and they do not light up then just switch the connectors around, because they are are polarized.
You can go to the motherboard WEB site (ASUS) to download a manual, the manufacturer and model number is printed on the motherboard.

I was adding a 512MB card to a Compaq Presario that has an ASUS K8S-LA (or Compaq motherboard: Salmon-GL6E) and discovered what looks like a heat sync loose inside the case. I can see where is was...

The ASUS K8S-LA main board has a variety of chips on it, however only the CPU is large enough to justify a dedicated heat sink.

The most likely location that your rogue heat sink is came from is your video card's processor. I'm lead to believe this for 2 reasons- 1) you say that the CPU heat sink is still in place, and it is the only heat sink on the main board, and 2) the location you described as to where you found the heat sink would be consistant with it falling off the video card (located in the AGP slot, directly below the cpu with the external ports facing left).

Below is a link on the HP website to the layout / photos of your main board which were referenced in this solution

This is actually very serious if it is the case as it could lead to rapid failure of your video card (or whatever card it goes to if that is the not the location). There are several guides available on the internet for "cleaning" heat sinks which will serve your purpose of reinstalling yours once you find the location.

Hope this information was helpful, please don't forget to rate my solution.
