i3 2100 to i5 3750k Problem

I recently upgraded my i3 2100 to a i5 3750k.

When I went to go turn it on after installing the new chip, I got 4 beeps and then it shut down. I went ahead and checked all the wires and made sure it was plugged in. Same result.
Nothing appears on screen, all fans turn on for about 3 seconds, then turns off.

Plugged in the old i3, worked perfectly.
Tried updating my bios. Same result

Does anyone have any idea what might be wrong? Is the CPU faulty?

My motherboard is a h61m-p21

Thanks!

4 beeps are system timer failure, which usually means your newly installed HW is not compatible.
So it seems like your mobo doesn't like IB...

It says, "Please refer to CPU Support for compatible CPU; the above description is for reference only."

thanks for the notice, I posted the wrong link, the right one should go straight to the bios files...

Thanks for the quick responses

How do I go about installing that file? It says use USB pen only, I'm guessing that's through the bios correct?

Sorry guys. I'm very new to flashing through bios

Nevermind I got it!

Typing as the i5 is connected to the board.

Thanks everyone. Almost ripped apart my computer and bought new parts.
