It sounds like a motherboard problem.

It's hard to give much more advice since I don't know any hardware details. Try reinserting all hardware components.

It could also be a problem with one of the inserted components. Troubleshooting involves replacing components one at a time. Try a different hard drive, DVD drive etc if you are stumped.

Sounds to me like you need to check the BIOS boot order. It's stopping right where it's supposed to launch into the boot process and is probably pointed at something stupid, like the ethernet.
