My computer isn't turning on.

This was the second time I've ever checked my PC, as it was running slower than usual. I wanted to have a look at my CPU, so I skimmed through a few YouTube videos and found out how to take out the CPU fan. I did so, and checked out my processor. I didn't remove it or anything, I just tapped the surface of it a few times. After that, I fiddled with a few wires and put back everything to the way it was. I tried turning on my computer, but it didn't work. After I pull out and plug back in the AC plug, turn the PCU off and on, I press the power button, and the led lights up for a split second.

I've gotten numerous answers telling me it was either something loose, I banged the CPU or that I did not put thermal paste.

What happened?

It sounds to me as though you may not have put everything back the way it was. I suggest that you thoroughly check every connection, to make sure they are all seated properly. The problem may be that you have inadvertently made a wrong connection somewhere.

This idea is a bit late in the day, for you anyway.

Use your phone to take pictures before you take anything apart. Then, when you put it back together, you can check as to how it was

I agree with the numerous answers - it's probably

either something loose, I banged the CPU or that I did not put thermal paste.
