did the RAM sticks. Not sure about the resetting the CMOS if it worked or not. I found a few ways on the net, nothing seemed to work. Unless I didnt do it right. It still flashes at startup.

This reminds me of a joke:
A guy says to his doctor: "My arm hurts when I do this" (he twists his arm around behind his back)
The doctor says: "Well, don't do that"

It is not good for a battery to run it all the way down to zero. That is why Windows default power settings warn you when you get to about 10% reserve and automatically shut down when you fall below that. Having the system shut off because of no power can cause all sorts of problems, both with Windows not shutting down properly and with the BIOS.
So, don't do that.

As for your system running slowly after these kinds of events that is not a surprise. Let me see if I can find some info to fix that.

This step-by-step from Microsoft is effective for most people:
Speed up my computer
(Note: choose "Fix it Myself" so you can see what it is that they suggest that you do. Always good to learn these things)

This tutorial is used often here at SevenForums:
Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7

I also highly recommend downloading and installing CCleaner https://www.piriform.com/ccleaner from Piriform, the running the cleaner to wipe away all the stray files that can slow a system down.
Then running Windows own Disk Cleanup utility (access from the Start search box)

See if these help.
