Help With A Sandy Bridge Pentium and a H77 Motherboard

Hi, I've recently switched out my CPU on my ASRock H77 M-ITX motherboard to a Sandy Bridge Pentium. When I tried turning on my computer again, it gets to the "starting Windows" screen where there's the 4 dots then it freezes, blacks out and becomes blue. Is this because of a defective CPU, or because there's another problem?
