You might have to update your BIOS to support this CPU .... but be very careful when updating your BIOS follow the instructions to the T.

But have a looky here pal

The latest version should have all the previous fixes included, but if you do the live update (scroll down to the bottom of the page) it should do everything for you

In the BIOS, did you have any overclocking timings set on the previous processor?
If so, load the defaults.
That could be what's keeping the computer with the new processor from starting.
