A quick update. After leaving it on the "black screen" for a while after pressing F2, it appeared to move into a Safe Mode-style Startup Repair program. At the end of the process, it listed a number of items stating "Test Performed: Completed Successfully". However, at the bottom it listed these two items:
Root Cause Found:
Unspecified changes to system configuration might have caused the problem.
Repair action: System Restore
Result: Failed. Error Code = 0x1F
Repair action: System files integrity check and repair
Result: Failed. Error Code = 0x490
After checking out of that screen, the computer rebooted and lo and behold actually booted up properly. I am assuming it reverted to a previous configuration, but am now afraid to turn the computer off.
Any idea what that was all about, what I should do next? Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Could be the CMOS battery, although it should not be if that's a new motherboard. That would be my first guess.
