I'll try and give it a shot.

Well im just speaking from experience,i have had several computer where when the Clock battery went dead (For some reason,one motherboard i had wouldnt charge the clock battery LOL) it would just sit at a black screen with a cursor in the middle and that's it.

It just sounded like what the OP is going through,so i decided to post



Yet no offence taken,but i would highly recommend the OP try what i said.

an easy way to tell if your cmos battery is dead/dying is to keep an eye on the date and time in your bios, that's almost always the first thing to go when a battery is dead/dying, usually if it's keeping the date and time it's kept all the other info as well...
