So, you removed the CPU from its Heatsink, cleaned the contact surfaces and put new Thermal Paste on them and reconnected them.

More likely Motherboard has failed however try:-

Disconnect mains lead

Pres and hold the power button for 30 seconds

reconnect power and retry to boot.

There comes a time when it's simply not fixable. Mobo dies and that's it. Why not replace the mobo and possibly use someone like Novatech, they have motherboards bundles =
