My motherboard stopped working after the CMOS battery became loose and fell out.

Has anyone had this problem before?

Not sure how a CMOS battery "fell out", but if your system doesn't work after (a) installing a new battery and (b) clearing the CMOS, then perhaps your metal battery shorted something out after it came out of the holder.
