So did my yearly cleaning out of the computer case and even pulled the CPU and redid the paste. Now I get power but can't get to the bios. Any ideas would help cause this nexus 7 ain't cutting it.

Are you sure when you put it back together that the mobo circuitry isn't accidentally touching the case anywhere and thus shorting out? I did that once, took me hours to figure out why it wouldn't boot and then had my "doh" moment.

I'd suggest resetting the cmos with the jumper but if you know how to redo thermal paste I assume you know that already.

Did you find any loose little capacitors laying around that might have been knocked off?
