I'm new in the computer world and I just bricked my first laptop. I tried to power on the laptop without a CMOS battery. Now only the power and WiFi lights are on. No monitor, nothing.
Something does not make sense here.
1 you are new to computerized world, so you say.
2 But you know how to take out the CMOS battery ?
3 Why in the world would you do that?
Your BIOS information is gone (since it uses the CMOS battery to stay alive).
There is no way to replace your BIOS information on the ROM chip without running computer.
Since you know how to take out the CMOS battery, you might be able to repair.
If the ROM BIOS chip for your computer is in a socket rather than soldered to the motherboard, you can replace it with an identical chip to resolve the issue.
