Windows might doing the crappy thing were they want you to re-activate then you turned off. I would just reset CMOS to see if that allows you to skip right through it recognizing the hardware. You could just take out CPU put new one in if that fixes it go all the to menu do a normal shutoff, then put new one in. Hopes this helps

Most if not all cpu upgrades require a bios update.
Not all processors are supported on certain boards.
You've supplied very little info in this regard.

Do you know what the exact BSOD stop error code is? You might have to upgrade the BIOS to be compatible with the new CPU.
