Attempted to upgrade my processor and RAM, now my computer won't startup at all.

I wanted to upgrade my computer (p7-1017c motherboard) from its base Intel Core i3-2100 processor to the Intel Core i5-2400 processor along with adding an additional 4GB of compatible RAM to the base 4GB (the RAM I got was 4GB DDR3L-1600 UDIMM which Crucial recommended for my motherboard). After initial installation of both, the computer would not work and proceeded to beep while flashing a yellow light. I researched and decided to clear my CMOS in order to help out. I did this as was recommended by removing the battery for a few minutes and then putting it back. This also did not work (resulting in the same beeps and flashes), so I decided to take out the new RAM and just test if the new CPU would work but I still got the same beeps and yellow flashes. I then decided to revert everything back by putting my old i3-2100 back in (also making sure to clean off and reapply thermal paste and the like) to make the computer the exact same as it was before I decided to do all of this and it is STILL giving me the same error. Right now it is doing 5 beeps accompanied with a synchronized 5 yellow flashes before repeating itself. What should I do?

You will need to contact the manufacturer of your motherboard for assistance with their hardware and bios.

Do you know how I could contact them? It's an old board so I'm not really sure where I would start.

You are welcome.  But, do not expect much from HP.
