A very silent machine back in original configuration can mean the CPU
clock is missing. How did you replace the oscillator? If you had to desolder
the old one, you might have loosened one of the vias. It is best to
check the clock pin of the CPU with an oscilloscope, or a logic
probe at least.

No clocks, no CPU...
