Also make sure the cpu's heatsink is mounted correctly, its possible to mount a socket A heat sink in the wrong direction. Make sure the step in the heatsink is facing the part of the socket that says "462" If the heatsink is mounted wrong the motherboard will shut down to prevent damage to the cpu.
Make sure the fan for the cpu is connected to the correct header on the motherboard, if not the board could recognise that no cpu fan is attached and shut down.
Check these first and if still no go then we'll check some other things

However, I would recommend doing the things Doby recommended first.

But if you tried it in a known working system the cpu must be bad.

As for the cpu thats what i figured, no big deal i didnt pay much for it and new it was a gamble as to if it would work or not. i was just hoping to get lucky. But guess that didnt happen isntead it dont work and i find out my current system has problems. dam lady luck aint on my side today.
Just wondering what kind of problems or damage could this bad psu cause? Or could have possibly already caused that i cant or havent noticed?

But the best way to check this is with a voltage meter, I like a digital one, so seeing as this psu is not having problems powering a known working rig first,,,,,,,,
check bios for the read outs, each rail should be plus or minus 5% of its value. In other words the 12V should be between 11.4- 12.6. If its on the low end I always replace it. If the bios is detecting a voltage that is below or above then check it with a volt meter to be sure
