Just to clarify, have you just installed a new cpu or fitted a new mobo and motherboard?

If it is the latter then check that you have installed the mobo correctly. I recenty swapped mine into a new case and it started to short out. All the lights would come on but the machine wouldn't boot up - it just beeped at me a lot! Reseating the motherboard sorted it out.

Whoops, when I said "a new mobo and motherboard" I of course meant: a new CPU and motherboard!!
