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.

New Heatsink and fan, should I wipe the already applied thermal paste?
I ordered a new heatsink and fan that I've received already , checking the new Heatsink and Fan, I've noticed there are two layers of sticky material ( I assume that it's the thermal paste). The first one is a bit bigger material that is on the heatsink part where it's going over the CPU, the...

Applied new thermal paste
Alright, this was my first time removing the current thermal paste and applying new one, the previous one was tough to remove because it was stone hard, although I didnt remove 100% of it i'd say I took out a good 70-80% of what was there. So when applying it, I hear some ppl say to put as much...

Thermal Paste
After reading some good reports on Shin Etsu thermal paste, I bought some, but am having a lot of problems with getting it to spread properly. It tends to clump together, and when forcing it out, it leaves such a thin covering that the lettering on the CPU is still plainly visible. I'm about to...

Used way too much thermal paste
This isn't that important, all it is is that I'm worried. It was my first time round putting thermal paste onto a cpu, and i sort of used an entire 3.5g syringe of arctic silver 5 underneath a zalman9700. Yes some did come over the sides, wiped it off, I'm guessing there is a layer inbetween...
