It is possible that some part of your motherboard is touching the base plate of
the cabinet. In such situations the system doesn't boot up. This *could* have
happened when you depressed the board to install the new CMOS battery. Try
lifting up the board a little with your finger tip. I usually have insulation
between the board and base plate.
Could be, Could be not, Couldn't say for sure.
