Question about HP Computers & Internet
Your hard drive is at fault. It will not recognize the CMOS or BIOS to start. The best place to fiind a replacement hard drive is tigerdirect.com & ebay.com. Use your computers make and model number to find one if doing so. If you do nt need the huge gigabites in the hard drive get one a bit smaller to save some cash if purchased

Hi and welcome to FixYa!
I'm afraid that you have a motherboard problem. This symptom surely is a motherboard failure that's why the pc won't boot up or it may boot but will surely restarts. In this case, the motherboard should be replaced.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

This sounds like a Ram issue ...remove one by one the ram memory and let it power up with just one at the time and see which one is making trouble ...The removing of the battery when you replace it ..cleared the CMOS and this kicked a little on the memory and this is why it worked..
When the ram memory have an issue it just loops and never get to read the devices ..cause the ram memory is the first one to be read...and will not boot at all with a defective one ..
let me now what you have done ...
by the way ..it is a possibility that a power shock corrupted both Ram memories.so if you have another one in handy you may try to use it first to see if it boots up ...or ..try to see if you are lucky and only one of them burned out ..
when you handle them ..do not touch the modules by hand cause static electricity may harm them ...
