O.k. I had some more time to bang my head against the wall with this one. I did my best to track the traces and I am 98% sure they are intact. The big thick traces seem to be delivering power to the ISA slots and there is continuity from one side of the board to the other across all three. The batteries (both auxiliary and the on board barrel one) have intact connections to their respective resistor banks as well as the KB Controller. Finally the keyboard connector (5 pin din) has continuity to the KB controller.

I think the traces are red herring at this point and there is something else wrong. Assuming it is a problem with the CMOS/RTC chip which chip is it? Also any other ideas? TIA.
