Hello there :D 

I have bought a new cpu, cause' i wanted something a little faster than my old cpu. (Core2 E4500)

But the only thing that happens when i install the new cpu in my pc, is that the cpu fan and my fan starts spinning, but the screen is black! What do i do??? :o

HP dx2300
Ati Radeon HD 5670

is this an OEM system such as from HP/dell?

No, its Xp. But i have installed the program "seven remix xp" which makes xp look kinda like 7 :)

thats not what OEM means i mean is it a prebuilt PC bought from a shop from a manufacturer such as Dell or HP or acer? if so whats the make/model of the PC?

oh... Well it's a HP Compaq dx2300 Microtower PC. The only thing is that i different from when i got it, is that i have added an Ati Radeon HD 5670 :)

Yeah, it looks like you should return the Q8200 for a refund since it is not supported by your HP computer.
