What exactly do you mean it just stays at "1"?  What
exactly, in it's entirety, do you see on-screen from the
moment it's turned on until it stops in the process?

My first guess given the prior state of the system is that
it needs a new motherboard battery, and you might leave the
old one out for 10 minutes while ac power is disconnected to
clear CMOS before installing a new battery.
