Re applied thermal paste, now pc wont boot up and makes high pitch

So I wiped my cpu with cleaning alcohol, dried, wiped it with a very thin layer of thermal paste(silver one), then put everything back together, not the fan wont even spin, but it twitches, and when power runs through pc, I hear a very high pitch noise. What is wrong? Please help.

Well we can't hear or see your computer so this will be my guess; the cooling fan on the CPU cooler. Check to make sure it's plugged in properly and that it spins freely with nothing hitting it.Check all other fans the same.
