    3rg Gen processor on a 2nd Gen Board


      I have installed a 3rd Generation chip (Intel Core i3 3240) on this board (Intel Q65 Express)before checking the compatibility, and the computer beeped 4 or 5 times, then I shut it down.   Then I installed the original chip (Intel Core i3 2130) on the board and powered it on, the computer starts, and turn on the normal lights (power, memory, lan, etc) but it is not showing any image and the usb ports are not working (mouse and keyboard are not showing any lights like num lock, caps lock and the mouse laser). Is the board damaged? What can I do?
