that is coz you have installed a third generation core i5 processor on a second generation core series mother board. You have to update your motherboard BIOS before you can use your computer.
To upgrade your BIOS you need to first install a sandy bridge cpu on the motherboard...flash the motherboard with relevant update and then install you core i5 processor. Sadly this is the only way to get it working

Update: I can't afford to buy another cpu, so i tried to fine if there were another malfunction, there were something about the ram that it says the motherboard can't hold up to rams with 1600Mhz so i have to change the configuration of the bios. I don't know if this is the problem, or i just need to update the motherboard. thanks btw to satya for the answer.

Ps: Now the pc boot up, but it won't show on screen.
