Do you get a screen of any kind when you first power up, can you get into the BIOS by tapping F8 on powering up, it may also be the Del key as not all PCs are the same.
The acer aspire t690 is listed as having an integrated video chip and also be able to accept an add on pci-e X16 type card type which are you using as it may have failed or it may need reseating, are you comfortable working on your computer?
We will guide you if you are uncertain in any way and ask as many questions as you feel you need to.

Try removing the CMOS battery again and keeping it out slightly longer before replacing it this time.
Remove and reseat the GFX card securely (if fitted, you never said) do the same with the Ram, check that all internal connections are secure and boot up.
NB: Please make sure you ground yourself before reaching inside the case, you can do this by touching a bare metal part of the case and ensure you remove the power cord from the wall before you begin.

Sorry but if your video chip or card has failed then a reboot disk will not solve the issue.
