Processor Installation


I installed an "Intel Pentium 4 550 3.40GHz 800MHz 1MB Socket 775 CPU" into my Dell Inspiron Desktop 530S computer, and when I boot up the computer, and the fan runs, but the Power button never turns blue (the color it should be when it starts up), and i get a blank screen, as if my moniter was on but my computer was not. Is there something I need to do to make the computer recognize the new processor? Or is this processor incompatible with my computer.
