i recently have had problems with my cpu fan so i opened up my computer to see what was going on and everything was infested with dust. so i vacuumed and air brushed everything off and took the cpu and cpu fan and this grill looking thing(?) off and cleaned it. Well anyway i put everything back together and the computer powers, but the blue light on the front doesnt come on and nothing shows up on the moniter. All the fans run and my internet card light comes on. I'm just wondering what i did wrong to cause this problem, please help!

Not sure what the grill looking thing is, unless it is part of the CPU fan.

I would take it apart again and make sure the CPU is seated correctly. Did you apply thermal paste before reinstalling the CPU fan? Check all the connections coming from the power supply and make sure they are plugged in and seated properly.

i think the grill is the heat sink, and no i just pulled it off and put it back on. i didn't think i needed thermal paste or anything of the sort?

Well, make sure you follow the exact procedure of installing the heatsink after applying the thermal paste.
Also make sure that other connections are intact.
