Try updating or "flashing" the bios to the latest version, though im sorta thinking you have a defective motherboard or cpu.

I could not found biostar N68S3B driver for windows 7 ultimate 32-bit os


Hi
I went to the download drivers page of the BioStar website for your mobo here:
N68S3B
and the VGA driver for Vista and Windows 7 is the same one 8.15.11.8634 (the "x86" indicates 32-bit, but the driver looks to be the same for both 32 & 64 bit).
Your question about the AMD Athlon can be answered quite easily. It is a CPU and does not need any specific driver. You should however download and install the chipset drivers for the mobo.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

No noise, no beeps whatsoever?
If no beeps, MBoard may be defective, or RAM might be bad, maybe one of the drives.
You need to d differential diagnosis.
Try removing everything but the CPU and see if it will POST.
If so, add 1 stick RAM, then 2nd stick, then Drive, then ,,,,,, until you find culprit.
If nothing works, would try another "known good" power supply
If that is no go, Mboard bad.

My first question would be have you re-installed windows or are you using the same hard drive and windows install? If you using the same install, windows does not like having the hardware changed so dramatically and would require a fresh install. Please let me know if this is a fresh install, with the error code from the blue screen if possible.
