PC is not displaying to monitor ?

Everytime I go to boot my PC, all the fans spin like normal except for the GPU, the GPU fans turn on but then start spinning very slowly while I have a black screen. 

Prior to this happening I changed the thermal paste on my GPU (which I've done a couple times before) and played games on it for about four hours until I shut down the pc myself. 


Any opinions on what this could be?

    It might be possible that the goop you put on the GPU chip was too much.  With some heating after 4 hours of running, the excess might have run down to contact some traces.  There could be some shorting of the power system--makes the fans run slowly, and no video output.  Investigate that.

    That is all that can be suggested from the details you gave, which were slim.
