Recently, my Acer M264 Desktop stopped booting. When turned on, it beeps once, boots to the "Acer" screen (ACER logo, DEL = EnterSetup, F12 = Boot Menu). I can only hit DEL or ESC to go to the next screen, F12 does nothing. the text is:

EM64T Capable Processor
The MCH is operating with DDR2 800/CL6/Tras18/Trp6/Trcs16
Dual Channel Mode
2048Mb OK (8MB Shared Memory Size Used) . On the second screen, I cannot select a drive to boot from or get the system to do anything else.
I have tried the following:
-Removed CMOS battery and changed the jumper position
-Removed the RAM and booted to hear any beep codes - only received a long steady one
-unplugged both hard drive cables SATA and ATA/IDE?
-no graphics card is in the system (using internal)
-tried reseating the CPU
Any other suggestions or is this a bigger problem?
