My System Specs

Default No POST/Monitor after CMOS replaced

Hey guys, need some input please.

Here's what I've done:

Performed clean install of Win7 Home
Installed 1st set of updates
Reboot
Then I get this msg on screen:
-Please choose proper boot device or insert bootable media

??

Reboot, can't access any boot menus
Reboot-- try to access Bios --Password protected.

I decide simplest fix is remove/replace cmos battery.
unplug all electrical
clear residual power
remove battery
wait 5min - replace

Power back up--

No POST, no signal to monitor.
Led lights are on, fans are on...WTF?

suggustions?

MOBO form factor, Micro ATX, 3pin jumpers for CMOS

Problem solved-

I had a couple of PC's I was working on, so I finished the rest and got some sleep. Came back to this one today, repeated the steps to reset CMOS again....and I'm in business! Must have been overtly tired last night.
