You will need to re-set your BIOS if you have removed the battery...This is an old dog indeed, If I am right it may be the F2 key to enter the setup screen (if I'm wrong press delete as it comes on)

Once in you will need to re-detect the hdd's and set the system configuration (date time etc.)

Your video, the machine is clearly not setup to boot from the hdd, and has not detected it. The BIOS is your first port of call. Removing the battery has caused it to lose it's (slightly old) memory :)

Try these:

Hold down the delete key WHILST switching the PC on.

Try the delete key if that fails. (same way)

If this will not get you access to the BIOS, try a different keyboard to be sure.
