Your BIOS should have got Corrupted and it is asking you for the BIOS file. You may have to flash your bios. Go to the Manufacturers site and read the instruction for flashing your bios or upgrading your bios.

My pc refuse booting keep telling me to insert a rompaq diskette and then recycle the first the LED shows a red light then the warning apeared

The harsh truth. I have owned about 6 of the Compaq Deskpro EN PC's and not one has lasted more than 3 months with out completely blowing up. Your best option is to take it for a drive to the dump and ditch the machine then buy a decent computer. I mean no offence.
They really arent worth your time in trying to fix, you will fix one problem and it will front with another.

Misplaced rompaq diskette

You probably need to change the boot order in the bios to make the computer boot from the cd rom before any local hard drives.

F2 is usually used to access the BIOS, you have to press it immeadiately upon seeing the first screen, which usually displays the name of the manufacturer, and from there you have to find the section to change the boot order.

Price of a compaq rompaq diskette

Compaq somewhere on their website has legacy updates and archive products that will allow you to download legacy updates to very older machines. Its not guaranteed but you might be able to download a BIOS upgrade from that site and boot from the floppy drive and reflash the BIOS.

You can also try resetting the BIOS by changing the bios jumper pin on your motherboard. Instructions on how to do this must be googled by you (Make sure you have the right model and make before you search and print out the directions.) A majority of BIOS chips are fixed onto the motherboard with very few where I have seen removable if a flash or corruption occurs.
