First of all, welcome to BC !
Reseated all devices Ram/Video/PCIE/CPU.
This has got virtually nothing to do directly with your present problem - but when you reseated the CPU did you clean the top surface and the bottom of the heatsink and replace the thermal paste ? If you didn't, then you should do so as a matter of some urgency.
With regard to your booting problem, is your SSD listed in the boot priority menu as the first device, or equally well, as second device after a CD/DVD drive ?
When you took the CMOS battery out, I would have been inclined to replace it. If it is the common 2032 type, they are not expensive, and while they are commonly good for up to five years or thereabouts (note to self - yours is due replacement !) you can never know how long it was in store before it was fitted to your motherboard. And it is well known that batteries like this when nearly discharged can cause some weird faults.
With regard to your microphone problem, if you have a look at your audio in Device Manager, are there any exclamation marks or other warning symbols against it ? Once you have sorted out your boot problem, uninstalling and re-installing your sound drivers might be worth doing.
I am going to be away until about the 22nd October. Time on-line will be reduced and my internet access may be limited. PMs may not be replied to as quickly as normal !
