You can't erase your operating system with taking out the CMOS battery. You have to correct the boot order in your BIOS.

Go into your BIOS and search for the page containing the boot order. Now set it up in a way that your system will boot again, most likely your first harddisk should be at first.

Your system must have some kind of mass storage device, either a harddisk, a SSD or something similar, may be a SD-card. You will see those options in your boot settings in the BIOS.
By the way, 8GB of video RAM would be really uncommon, even high end videocards nowadays have a maximum of 4GB, it is more likely that you have a 8GB SSD in your netbook.

EDIT: Just looked it up, according to Wikipedia the ZG5 was shipped with either a 8 or 16GB SSD or a harddisk with 120 or 160GB.

bigheroman, by saying "ZG5", do you mean the netbook "Acer Aspire One ZG5"?
