Hi puter tutor and welcome to Dev Shed.
If this cpu was not suitable for the motherboard, then you could have damaged the motherboard. Never insert a CPU into a mobo without consulting the mobo manual to ensure that they are compatible with each other.
What make/model of motherboard do you have ?

4.) Lawyers, see rule 3
5.) It is O.K. to drive a gas guzzler if it helps you get babes
