    Before you panic:

    1) Make really sure you have the CPU and heatsink properly installed.

    2) Replace the PRAM battery. I believe it is a 1/2AA 3.6V Lithium.

    Thanks

    Open it back up and make sureyou didn't pull the processor out just a tiny bit. make sure its down in there all the way.

    Take off the heatsink & inspect the core. On Athlon XP CPUs a CPU is more often killed by cracking or chipping the die than over volting it in the Overclocking world. If the die has been damaged than your CPU is dead.
