proliant 5000 server

My 5000 gave me an error message at boot "1613 low system battery warning.Replace battery within 7 days to prevent loss of non volitale configuration memory". I had an external 3 volt plug in battery and put it in and flipped the switch on the motherboard to switch to external battery.It still gave me the same message.So I disassembled the server, removed the motherboard and soldered in a new 3 volt battery.Now I've lost the configuration.I flipped the #2 switch on the motherboard to unlock configuration.When I boot with smart start 4.90 it goes to menu and when I select run configuration utility it gives me" unrecoverable error while running smartstart.Error code 18".I download the rom paq and flashed the bios with the utility and still the same error on smartstart.I then flipped dip switch 6 to clear configuration memory and tried it all again, but same error. Did I blow the BIOS on the battery re-install?
