Over the past week I've noticed my cpu fan starting to whine. I got a error message on the boot diagnostic telling me there was an issue with it. The computer still ran fine, turned it off and went to replace the fan.

I replaced the fans and since the heat sink was off I decided to repaste. Finished repasting and plugged it all back in and now it won't boot. I've taken the thing apart over ten times, checked every cord and inspected the board. I can't for the life of me figure out what I've done wrong.

I'm getting lights on the network port and I know the power button works. When I Un plug everything and hit the button I do get the network lights.

Thoughts?
