Processor Problem

  1. Actually what happened is I opened my cpu to clean out any dust so I cleaned it and even cleaned under the processor with a dry cloth.but when I tried to turn on the pc when everything was arranged,a black screen with a paragraph of error is shown.turns off the pc automatically.
    My motherboard is fine,it shows a green light in the extreme end.
    My processor is working great.
    Hard disk is also fine.
    But still it is not turning onn. Please help.

    Did you happen to have disconnected the power cable from the computer and press and hold the power button to discharge any built up static charges before opening and cleaning inside the computer?
    You mentioned you cleaned under your processor. Did you pull the processor from the motherboard or was it still attached when cleaning?
    Did you re-check ALL wires and connections? Try disconnecting all cables (to motherboard, hard drive, optical drive, video card, etc.) and then re-connecting said cables, making sure they are firmly seated.
    Any chance you can take a photo of the error message and post it here?
    May I suggest next time do not use a dry cloth, because you can actually build up static charge within the cloth itself and you could have discharged the built up static electricity into (or onto) one of the computer components.
