Is there a built in display adapter?

If all you did was change the battery then I'd assume you cleared cmos. That may mean that the default settings have returned. If you had a built in video port then the default goes to that.

I'd remove ac power, press power button a few times. Use esd strap and remove cmos battery for a bit and carefully return it. Be sure polarity is correct. Look for any connection that may have been bumped in the process and re-seat it. Power it up.

Any fans or keyboard lights or other indications of how far it is getting?

Make sure graphics are fully seated.
Make sure any aux. power connectors required by the card are fully seated.
Make sure all other system connectors are properly seated.
Remove and reseat memory.
Make sure your power supply can power your graphics card(s).
Check all wires to make sure non are pinched or cut along the edge of the metal of the case (as in when you try to hide some of the wires).
Try a different monitor cord, and even a different monitor.
** If you try all above, tried more than one graphics card, then your problem is probably in your power supply or your motherboard and I would lean towards it being the power supply (either bad, too weak or not enough amps for your graphics).

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