So i successfully swapped the G4400 with the G4560, however i had to take out the ram stick in order to take out the old cooler and swap it for the one that came with the G4560 but now there's a problem, despite having done everything correctly and had the new CPU just drop in the slot with no problems whenever i press the start button it doesnt even boot and just continuosly turns on and off with a black screen. Doesnt even boot into the bios.

G4400 is a skylake processor, the G4560 is kaby lake.
While the sockets are both lga1151 compatible, the processors are not exactly.
What is the make/model of your motherboard?
Most likely it needs a bios update to run kaby lake.
You will need to reinstall the G4400 to do that.
