I tried removing the CMOS battery, that did nothing either.

This suggestion above however was very close to the solution. A friend on Steam suggested I remove one of the two RAMs I have... lo and behold, I have signal again. There were no warning signs or anything, it just immediately started working again as intended. He suggested that my motherboard had a hiccup during the switch and decided it has no RAM, so I had to disturb the memory to set things in motion again.

Thankfully all is working properly now so this issue is resolved. Thanks for all the advice ANoDE
My signature was removed because it was vulgar. Now I can't choose my own till March 2014. If I edit this one I will be suspended till March 2014.
