Wait. The cyanogen ROM is made device specific. Was the recovery and ROM made for your model? This question may be stupid so ignore it if it's irrelevant.
Now, try redoing everything again? From flashing of recovery, to the wiping and flashing of ROM? Or check the size of your ROM zip. It should not be of a small size. If the ROM install is successful, it will show successful. If failed, it will show failed.
Also, how about installing a new version of the stock ROM? Search Google for it, on full return to stock ROM.
