i5 2400 wont reach BIOS (stuck in infinite loop)

about 1-2 years ago my i5 2400 just suddenly stopped working in my pc, so i quickly replaced it with a i5 2500k, and that is what im using now. However i now want to sell the 2400, and i wanted to find out if i could get it working (i didnt try 1-2 years ago because i was new to building pc's).

(I do not show the monitor, but nothing is outputted to it...)

I have tried my i5 2500k in the exact same slot, and it works fine, so i know it is something wrong with the i5 2400

Can anybody help me fix this problem? :)

    CPU failures are VERY rare. That being said, this looks like a CPU failure.
