Try to reseat the drives, maybe reset the BIOS to defaults (should be a jumpter on the motherboard or just take out the CMOS battery for a few seconds after unplugging the wall power).

Try different drive ports on the board? Sata, PATA, whatever you have there. Sounds like the motherboard is bad if it can't read anything on it. Maybe try a different hard-drive just to rule that out.

Download the bios from Acer, will probably be on a CD iso or a floppy image. Create the boot disk and boot from it.
