As the title says, I cleaned my old thermal paste from my cpu and applied a new one, after i did that, i connected everything the way it should be connected, my power supply works, the cpu fan works as well, gpu works, but im still getting blackscreen, i tried unplugging ram/gpu and all that, still no help. Anyone had similar problem and maybe could help me out? Thanks

Sorry, my bad. I read the CPU was working instead of the CPU fan.

It is just possible you accidentally disturbed the chip while wiping off the old thermal paste. You'll have to gp back in and reseat it in case that's the problem.

I cant get that far. Last night my pc was working just fine before i decided to reapply thermal paste, ever since its not working. Cpu fan works, gpu works, power supply works. Gpu led light is on, but power up led light isnt turning on for some reason even tho it starts all other parts.
