""I´ve made some changes in the BIOS to try and get it working, (Enable/Disable PS2 mouse port, Enable/Disable Serial ports...all kinds of combinations)...but nothing..."
So how did you get into the bios then?
When and where do you have no mouse or keyboard?
If they are both USB connected, probably neither will work in the bios with default bios settings, and probably neither will wake up the computer - you have to use a PS/2 keyboard, and enable Legacy USB support, or similar, in the bios Setup, which is often disabled by default. In some older bioses you must enable the USB controller, and also assign a IRQ for USB - they may be disabled by default.
To get the wake on features to work for the mouse and the keyboard of any type, you may have to change default wake on settings, which may be disabled by default, and ACPI or APM must be on in the bios. Not many old bioses can use a mouse in the bios, and if they can often it must be PS/2 or serial connected.
In Windows, look in Device Manager - do you see any unknown devices, or other entries with a yellow ? or a red X, or are there missing entries?
You could have a faulty power supply and that is what is wrong - e.g. USB devices will not work if the +5v is too low or not there; neither will floppy drives and CD drives for that matter.
Check your PS.
See response 4 in this:
"BIOS is "AMIBIOS" Verion 1.18"
If that is on the bios chip it's probably useless.
If that is displayed on the first screen as you boot, version 1.18 doesn't reveal enough if we don't know what mboard make and model you have.
If you DO know your mboard brand, model, or mboard version or revision number, or your brand name system model number,
tell us what it is.
If you DO NOT know your mboard brand, model, or mboard version or revision number, or your brand name system model number, we need more info.
If the motherboard is in a working system, we need your bios string to be able to identify your mboard and/or computer.

Did you REMOVE the power to the mboard while you fiddling around in the case? ATX mboards are always powering ATX mboards in some places even when Windows is Shut Down or in Standby or Hibernate modes. If all you did was change the mboard battery you probably didn't harm anything, but if you unplugged or plugged in anything connected to the mboard with the AC still on, you can damage the mboard or anything connected to it.
Did you by any chance change any ram while you were changing the battery? The 440LX chipset is very picky about which ram you use.
