The coin battery on your motherboard is there to preserve the BIOS memory. The system will boot if it is dead, but it will return to defaults every time it boots up and will not retain the time or date. If you are getting no lights or sounds then your power supply is dead, but check for a manual switch on the rear of the power supply (external) that may have been switched off when it was disconnected or moved. If you are having some lights or sounds, then it may still be the power supply or it may be something else. In this case, please give us more information on what you are seeing and hearing as well as your system information.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
