I'm sure you will get an answer to your problem i you can supply a little more info such as: Did the fans stop working after you tried fixing or before? When you press the power button what happens? Lights? how many? What color are they? The more info the better. Good luck.

and no there is no thermal compound substitute. If you do manage to get it to turn on make sure to turn it off right away since there's no compound on the processors.

Well, that's the first time I've ever heard anyone complain that their coolers were too cool...

It's a power problem, what have you done to it?

Any computer repair store will sell you a tube of thermal compound - but if it rrod'd and your attempted repair had no effect it's probably toast :(
