CPU upgrade help

  1. I recently tried to upgrade my CPU from an e2140 to an e6300 45n wolfsdale core,
    my mobo is IPIBL-LB, it says itsa supported so I tried it, at first it was giving me a little trouble booting up, then it booted up correctly and windows 7 installed it, so I had to restart, when i went to restart my computer screen turned off but my computer and all the fans remained on, I waited abit to see if it would turn off itself but it didn't so i held the front power button til it turned off, when I went to reboot it stopped working, the computer and fans ran but it made no image on-screen, I had to switch back to my old processor.

    Why would it do this? is it defective or maybe my BIOS doesnt support it right? which I would find wierd since it did boot completly into the GUI and siw + cpuid read it fine??

    Is that a BIOS update or an overall updater?
