Computer not turning on

Okay so yesterday evening I decided to Shut the computer down and replace The battery On the motherboard and and blow the dust out of the computer. When I put it back together it would not turn on. I have a rampage extreme motherboard. It is the first version of the rampage extreme. It has a start button on the motherboard besides the power button on the case. I have used both start buttons or power buttons but the computer still won't turn on. I went and bought a new power supply but that didn't help either. I have checked and double checked all of the connectors and everything looks fine. I fear that my motherboard or processor is toast. Are there any suggestions to what else I can try?
Weird thing is it was running fine I just decided to shut it down and put a new battery in it because a couple of weeks ago the electricity went off. when it came back up I had to enter the date in the BIOS so I knew the battery was dead. plus I knew it was due for a cleaning. So I shut it down and gave the cleaning like I've always done for the past 5 years.
My computer:
Asus Rampage Extreme MB.
Intel core 2 quad 2.83Ghz Q9550 proc with Zalman CNPS9900 cooler.
Radeon HD 5770 Gpu.
SSD HD.

The motherboard lights up like it should but won't power on... Even with a new PSU...

Thanks!

Did you take any anti-static precautions ?

1° If you try to start it, does it react at all or nothing ?
can you enter the bios ?
what happens exactly ?
is a monitor attached to the video card ?
do keyboard lights lighten up shortly

2° If there are cards inserted that are not strictly used, you might remove them temporarily

3° If there is a short circuit, a new power supply might give you the same situation

I guess you checked with ASUS?
This seems to be a common issue.

Remove the battery for an hour, then insert it back and try again. This will reset the BIOS completely.
Also unplug wall cable.

1° If you try to start it, does it react at all or nothing ? No reaction at all. Nothing happens.

can you enter the bios ? nope, won't attempt to boot.

what happens exactly ? Nothing, either from pressing the power button on the case or the start button on the motherboard.

is a monitor attached to the video card ? Yes but doesn't matter when it doesn't boot.

do keyboard lights lighten up shortly? Wireless usb keyboard without lights.

2° If there are cards inserted that are not strictly used, you might remove them temporarily. Might try that later

3° If there is a short circuit, a new power supply might give you the same situation. Yes it will.

This motherboard has multiple BIOS. I have tried moving the jumpers to the other locations for the different BiOS. Still nothing happens. Might try your way once but I don't think it's going to help because it was down for over an hour originally because I had to go and get the battery. so therefore the BIOS should already have been reset. I can't even get booted into BIOS because when i hit the power button Or start button on the motherboard, nothing happens.

Be sure to remove any add-ons like graphics cards etc, make sure the battery you replaced is in the correct polarity, but it sounds like the MB is toast.. (assuming your power supply is good and everything plugged in correctly).. I've had the same thing happen with new motherboards- sometime they just won't power up...due to bad caps etc.

Remove the power
Unplug the power from the MB, let it rest for 10/20 min.
Plug in the power on the MB
put on the power
press start button

Another road that you can try :

remove the battery (make sure you don't touch the battery with your fingers
as sweating can create the battery to go death slowly in the future, so take
it with something

there is a jumper that allows to remove the bios settings to factory default
it's possible that due to running low on the previous battery, that configuration
got into some kind of a 'unstable' situation, preventing it from booting now

then put back and try to boot
