Cmos battery change then nothing!

\015 Okay here it is! I have an old hp laptop (N3410) that my husband uses; over the last few days every time he starts it a low cmos battery error came up. So through some reseach it sounded like no big deal to change the battery. All went well with battery change and I put the laptop back together pluged it in and nothing. It beeps once and the cd light comes on then nothing. Im not sure what to try or if I there is nothing I can do. Please help if you can!\015
