I am posting this from my xbox 360 because my PC is broken. I noticed my CPU is getting hot these days so I turned it off to reapply the thermal paste. When I try to turn it on now, I have a black screen. Keyboard and mouse is not working (I suspect the computer is not powering the keyboard and mouse). All the fans and lights work.

I've tried the following:
-Unplugged the PSU, cleaned the dust with air and replugging everything.
-Change the rams to different slots.
-Took the CPU out and placed it back in.

Could it be my motherboard is fried? If it is the CPU than it should still boot to a screen and not a black one. I don't have any other computer to switch parts to find out which is broken. I don't want to replace parts that isn't broken either.

Did you clean off the old paste with rubbing alcohol before applying the new paste?

Have you tried removing your GPU and booting off of integrated graphics?
