Default Windows freezes during boot

I just recently bought some new thermal paste for my computer and i finally took it apart and applied it. But when i put it ll back together and booted it freezes during the windows XP loading bar. I try to boot in safe mode and it can't load SPTD.sys. I do have Deamon tools but I haven't had a problem with this before. Does anyone know what i can do. I can't boot at all and it's driving me crazy. Please help.

I would take hsf out, reapply paste, and reinstall.
