How far does the Boot get? Is your keyboard active (is it polled?), do you see the BIOS boot screen? Can you access BIOS?

Can not boot from CD or HD, with BIOS screen showing, is one thing.

Can not get BIOS screen showing, is another.

Both are, can not boot from CD or HD.

Your M/B support Socket 462 (also called Socket A) is a PGA socket designed for AMD K7 family of processors. This socket can be used with AMD Athlon and Duron processors ranging in speed from 600 MHz to 2200 MHz (3200+) and with bus frequences ranging from 100 MHz to 200 MHz (400 MHz DDR)

Athlon (Socket A) (600 MHz - 1400 MHz)
Athlon XP (1333 MHz - 2333 MHz, or 1500+ - 3200+)
Athlon MP (1000 MHz - 2133 MHz)
Duron (550 MHz - 1800 MHz)
Sempron (socket A) (1500 MHz - 2200 MHz, or 2200+ - 3300+)
Mobile Athlon 4 (850 MHz - 1400 MHz)
Mobile Athlon XP-M (Socket A) (1200 MHz - 2200 MHz, or 1400+ - 3000+)
Mobile Duron (650 MHz - 1200 MHz)

I Recommend to go for Athlon XP with good cooling fan. :)

I just had the CMOS checksum error while starting the computer, So pressed F1 and continued.. I just don't think it's the battery, because the computer is 2-3 months old, and all parts were new. I also have another problem. which is that it tells me at start upo the the IDE 80 connector cable isn't installed, or something like that, which prevents one of my hard drives to be found by windows....

Please Tell me, ASUS P4S8X-MX Problemn

First of all, try to reseat all the cables inside your computer just make sure there aren't any loose connections.

If that doesn't work you will have to reset your BIOS. (Follow the instructions in your motherboard manual.)

If even after resetting the BIOS the problem is not solved, you may have to replace your CMOS Battery.
