If the bios is working enough to enable you to boot from a CD download the new bios from asus along with there AFUDOS.exe flash utility and make a bootable CD and copy both to it.
If the bios is completly none functional you should be getting this msg when you turn the computer on, Boot Block Compatible Version Ver .010 Bad BIOS checksum. Starting BIOS Recovery Checking for floppy . . Floppy not found Checking for CD rom . . . CD not found Checking for floppy . . Floppy not found Checking for CD rom . . . CD not found
Repeat adinfinitum. If this is the case you need download the most recent BIOS from compaq and either copy it to a bootable CD if you have this capability or buy a floppy drive for $5 and make a bootable floppy on a working computer and copy this BIOS file to it. Then rename the bios file to A8N32SLI.ROM.
You may not even need make the floppy bootable but I would just in case.
Stick the floppy in the drive turn the computer on and you will see

Hi Tony, Thanks for the details you have mentioned. The steps you have taken are correct and if the System/ hardware is ok, it should boot from CD Drive. Whenever i have faced such an issue, i always started afresh to check each hardware (CD, DVD, ROM, Hard Disk, Cables, Connections etc) and most of the times the issue was optical drive or CD/DVDs.
So, I recommend that make sure that the CD/DVD ROM is functioning properly. When the system is set to boot from CD/DVD, it must try to read CD/DVD after power on. It is indicated by spinning of the optical drive and blinking CD ROM LED. If there is a bootable CD in the drive, it should boot. You may try to boot the system through DOS bootable CD. Also, if you still have the OS on your system, you may check the CD ROM through windows.
Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.
GoodLuck! Dont forget to appreciate the solution if I could have been of any help! CreativeTECH
