Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Elite Console

My XBOX ELITE restarts indefinitely, controller doesn't connect

My XBOX 360 ELITE had the red lights of death. I opened it up, replaced the x-clamps with screws and replaced the thermal paste. When I put it all back together, I was in a hurry so I didn't put the eject part on right. So, when the XBOX was all back together the drive didn't eject. I took the XBOX apart again and I unplugged all the cables from the DVD drive and plugged them back in. When everything was all plugged in and the case was on, the XBOX restarts after 3 seconds and keeps restarting indefinitely. After each restart it runs louder and I wonder if it might be damaging something on the inside. The controller doesn't connect to the XBOX either, it just keeps searching, even when the XBOX is off. I don't know what to do now.

If you have the reciept send it in to microsoft and get it fixed/replace. if you dont and you want to try again do what you did but clean all the parts you take off and put everything back on and precise as possible.
