Hmm. . . You may have knocked something loose then. Go back and carefully recheck all connections, cables, etc. Reseat all peripherals such as vid card, memory, etc.

Remove everything unneeded such as hard drives, CDROM/DVD drives, etc. and just boot with the basics, video and memory, to see if it starts up right.

boot loader doesn't effect POST, you need to reseat your RAM and video card first and foremost. try booting with only 1 stick of ram and try reseating the cpu as well. something isn't plugged into the motherboard all the way.

Removing the CMOS battery would have the same effect as clearing the CMOS as you already have done.
