If I understand things correctly here you broke the PRAM battery connector so the system can't hold its PRAM settings as the battery that sustains it is not connected [https://d3nevzfk7ii3be.cloudfront.net/igi/VfNHLloIAkXGUpTh.huge|PRAM battery and its connector]. Basically, once you shut your system down the settings get lost. Its been awhile since I've worked on this series so I don't remember if the system will startup cleanly or not. See if you can post a picture as clear as this one I posted so we can see how badly its damaged. Maybe we can help you connect it back somehow.
