Question

New CPU broke PC

I recently bought a new cpu from the store, and when I plugged it all in and turned the computer on, all of the lights and fans worked, but nothing showed up on the monitor. If there is anything I can do, please tell me. Thank you

Answer
The usual next step.

Go back to what worked.

Some PCs DEMAND (as in not optional) that the BIOS be current to accept a CPU on the machine's CPU SUPPORT LIST. But here we have no make, model and BIOS version to work with.

Tell more.

Buy Intel

Is this CPU from AMD? If it is, i am not surprised
Return to the store this and buy a normal one
