Pc only turning on for a few seconds after cleaning gpu fans.

Hi, my gpu was getting noisy so I decided to clean (not vacuum) JUST THE GPU FANS and now the computer will only turn on for a few seconds and then shuts off. The gpu fans spin as well as everything else, so I’m at a loss at what to do next. I’m not computer savvy so please be slow with me thank you

Sounds like you've accidentally moved something. Possibly nudged the Heatsink from the CPU.

If that is what has happened, replacing the Thermal Paste is relatively simple task but not for the faint hearted. First time I needed to do it, I got a mate in, to stand over me.

There are plenty of videos on YouTube to show you how it is done
