I recently had to take my computer apart to replace the CMOS battery and when i put it back together the pointer stopped working.  I've taken it apart again and it is attached to the motherboard.  Is there anything else i can check?

the pointing device is most likely attached to the motherboard via a tiny ribbon cable...make sure it's properly inserted in both sides. it may look like it is fully inserted but it's happened to me numerous time when it wasn't properly seated make sure you flip up the connector > insert cable > snap down connector.
