If it died before replacing the battery, than it sounds like you
have a deeper issue than a bettery issue (not preserving BIOS settings
across a power down/powerup). If it's an OEM system contact the
manufacturer. If it's a DIY system, start googling the MB and see if there
are others with similar issues.
If it happened after a battery change, note that once you swap out the
battery, all BIOS settings are lost and you have to set them back up
again. OEM systems only have a few settings, but DIY motherboards will
have many more settings. Don't forget, the date also is lost.
Can you get into the BIOS at all?
Lastly, please fill out your system specs in your profile. That will
answer many questions others might have about your system.
