Ok i connect everything but the power cable on my friends computer. Its fine i double checked it and everything. So the connections are right. I plug the power cable into the power supply and it instantly turns on. The power switch wont turn it off either. I thought this was the power switch jumper on the motherboard was wrong but it seems to be right. I also get no display. Im confused on what to do next... please help me out.

Starting with the power switch - some systems have a 4 second delay enabled for the soft power switch. This means that simply pressing it doesn't turn it off, you have to press & hold the switch in (for about 4 seconds oddly enough!) before the system shuts down. I can't promise this is the case with your machine but try it & find out.

also check the power settings on BIOS- some systems have an option for what to do after loss of power. if its set to restart, this might be causing it.
I set all my systems to stay off after loss of power.

When you say you have this problem with 2 boards, is that 2 completely seperate computers with identical boards in or do you mean you have tried 2 identical boards in the same system?
