Acer AM1100 hanging up on DMI update

I have an Acer AM100 (can't remember the rest of the model number right now) desktop PC that is hanging up on the DMI update check. I am able to load Windows 7 or Windows Vists just fione.can do updates, etc. and the PC is fine until it reboots. Then it hangs up. Sometimers it gives the DMI Update......Success, sometimes no success. but it never goes any further. I have tried unpligging the CD Sata drive, taken out the modem, unplugged the front USB ports from the MB, even tried other working IDE and SATA drives. Always the same thing......OS loads fine and runs fine until a reboot. There is no recovery partition and I have tried other verified working RAM in multiple combinations. It does the same thing if you try to get into Safe Mode or any other option. I have been working on PC's for years and have worked on other Acers and never had this problem before. I have tried removing the CMOS battery and letting it sit unplugged over night.
I am stumped on this issue and would appreciate ANY assistance that anyone can offer.

Restart.
Enter BIOS SETUP.
Use "Load Factory Default Settings".
Reset the boot-order to floppy/CD/Disk0.
Save/Exit.
This will force a "full" DMI update.
Watch for the computer to spin the floppy,
and then spin the CD, looking for "boot" records.
If it does, then the DMI update has _COMPLETED_ and the "boot" process is starting.
