Hi,
Difficult to suggest a solution from what you have posted. How did you know the CMOS battery was 'gone'? I assume you don't mean physically missing but low voltage. If the battery was going 'low' you would normally receive a low battery warning in advance of total failure. The warnings vary from make to make and with the BIOS but often consists of the time and date being consistently wrong or having to reinstall drivers.  

Don't understand "hhd never flash". What do you mean? Will the PC boot or start? Or is it completely dead? It is possible that you have disturbed a connection on the motherboard when you installed the new battery, so you should check to make sure all connections are good. Check that the battery is in the right way. It is also possible that the motherboard or CMOS chip received an accidental 'dose' of static charge from you when you were fitting the new battery. If this did happen you could need a new motherboard.

Good information here about low CMOS battery problems:

If "hhd never flash" means that the harddrive is not recognized, you will have to go into BIOS (also called Setup) and have it recognize the harddrive.  Your computer should say on the screen as it is starting up how to get into BIOS or Setup.  You usually have to press one or two keys.

The request is confusing as we do not even know if anything happens when the start button is hit. Are there noises or any lights? If not there may be a bad switch or the power supply is shot, or the cable to the Mb from the Powe supply has gotten out of the slot. To help we need to know what happens
