    I have the ecs k7s5a motherboard with a amd xp 2000. Everything is connected but when i hit the power button the cpu fan turns for 3 seconds and stops. Thats it, nothing else happens.
    Does anyone know whats going on?

    are you just putting the computer together or has it worked before?
    if your just now setting it up it could the motherboard shorting out. like if one of the mounting screws for the motherboard is touching something on the board it could cause it to short out. try and see if you can remove the board from the case so that its not touching anything metal and see if it will boot up.
