Unplug the computer, pull the CMOS battery, hold down the power button for 10-15 seconds, then reinsert the CMOS battery and power it back on. Give it up to 5 minutes to boot and load past the black screen. If it still doesn't get to the desktop, try to boot off of a live Linux USB and see if you have any luck.

I enjoy buying junk and sinking more money than it's worth into it to make it less junk.

Can I short it with a key or something metal? I dont have a jumper, also do I leave the CMOS battery in or out?

Works either way. Pulling the battery is a guaranteed wipe with no jumper mucking.
