I have a Dell Dimension E520 it had the Blue Crash Screen, I replaced hard drive, memory and got a CPU upgrade Intel E6300 at 2.8 upgraded bios from dell and when I put in the new processor it just sits there. I can put in the old E6300 1.86 works find until it crashes again. Any thoughts?????

Did you do a clean install after you replaced the CPU?

Windows doesn't like hard ware changes, especially if it's the CPU.

I was a little confused at first, but you went from a C2D E6300 to a Pentium Dual Core E6300.

You will definitely need to do a clean install. I've never swapped CPU successfully without Windows throwing a hissy fit. That should get rid of your BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) as well.
