Question about Abit AN52 Motherboard
Couple of things, what type of cpu are you using? you might have one that requires the small 4 pin plug connected to the board as well as the main long plug, or it maybe you have that connected and the cpu is the type not to have it connected, also try working your way backwards try unplugging one thing at a time, like hard drive cable, then cd rom cable that sort of thing till it eventually post boots, also check to see if the jumper for the bios is in the correct possition, some boards come default clear bios, check the memory is in correctly inserted in its slots, also make sure your using the correct type of memory, are they the same size ie 2 x 1 gigs etc,make sure power supply is upto the job, nothing less than 350watt is needed on modern motherboreds..well hope that helps a little bit, good luck

First off disconnect any devices connected to the board, hard drives, dvd-roms, leave the the memory, processor and power lead connected to the board, try to boot it up.
If the fans run then the power switch is wired up properly, next check the graphics, ensure it is in the socket properly and all power connections are connected up.
If it still dosent boot and you have the manual for the motherboard look for the bios jumber, there are 2 settings normal mode which lets the computer boot, and the other that dosent allow boot, this jumper is normally J12, but have a look in the manual for the motherboard to make sure, if you try all of this and the system still will not boot please post back
