My system had been working fine for many months/years. This morning I awoke to see the splash screen just sitting there. I assumed a microsoft overnight update may have tried to reboot that failed. But my system simply will not boot past the splash screen.

Intel corporation D915GMH desktop board
Serial number :BQMH44100378

DDR400 --> Operating in Dual Channel memory mode
Total Installed memory: 2048 System RAM
Legacy Keyboard. . . . detected

Hit <F2> if you want to run setup
Hit <F12> if you want to boot from the network
No errors, no beeps. If I hit F2 it says entering setup and sits there.
Removed all devices, rotated memory, ran with 1 stick, 2 sticks 4 sticks, same result it sists at the splash screen.
Disconnected all drives same results. Tries bootable CD same result (no floppy drive), tried bootable USB stick
Tried setting bios jumper to force bios -- get splash screen saying entering setup.
Tried downloading bios to empty USB key and removing bios jumper
Nothing seems to have worked. Need help -- send Email too if you don't mind. I'm not sure I can find my way back to this post from this device.
