    I don't know why you removed the battery unless you were mucking around with the BOIS. But please start a new thread for your questions.

    So you don't get any video when your motherboard starts-up or POSTs?

    If your motherboard dosen't have a jumper to disable/enable the onboard video and you're not getting any POST messages, then your board is KAPUT or you could install a new video card. You do have what looks like a sixteen speed PCI-E slot for a video card so you could go that route if you wanted to, but I'd be hesitant about adding a new video card to a motherboard that was in the process of dieing.
