Right so I recently cleaned my heat sink fan with a nylon paint brush, and decided to take the heat sink off the cpu, drying the thermal paste, i put it back on and now the pc starts but doesnt show anything to the monitors, does it just need fresh thermal paste or have i messed up the cpu?

As NightHawkRMX has said, you need to put some fresh thermal paste on the CPU, something like Arctic MX4. Fingers crossed you will be okay but do not switch the PC on again until you have re-applied the new thermal paste and attached the CPU cooler. Then restart and hopefully it all works.
