Dell Inspiron 2650 Error Code: M1004


I have this problem with my Inspiron 2650. When I try to boot it up after the two beeps.

It seems that it can't realize the flappy, CD Rom or the hard drive. On the Setup screen, it finds no hard disk or cd-rom. They both show as 0MB. On the floppy drive it shows as 1.44MB 3 1/2". There are 2 fans, one under the heatsink, another small one on the back but both seems to be not running. I am worry that the CPU and/or the mobo is dead. Any suggestion?!? Thanks!

Please help!
