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.
