Router opens ONLY ROMMON??!!

I have a problem i need help with, i got i cisco 2600 series router recently which is used,when i first started it ,the console screen goes only to ROMMON and can't boot from the IOS image, this is what iam getting : and i also wanna make sure that this is not because this is no flash and/or NVRAM in the device installed so i looked up a picture for the back of it online and it looks just like mine so i thought this is norma..Any ideas?

Thank you.
