when you removed the heat sink you probably lifted the processor out of its socket. Is it an Athlon? Try reseating it properly - but you may now have bent the pins or damaged the motherboard, either of which is terminal.
The original problem may not have been correctly diagnosed either - its it was overheating, the problem is more likely to have been simply just a build up of dirt and crud in the machine, rather than problems with the thermal paste.
