I ran aida32 which I think Sandi recommended a long time ago as a good program and looked in the motherboard and bios sections. It had the address of the board maker and the place to get a bios update. Aida32 is a program that gets all the information on all the stuff in your computer.

Where did you find your update for the bios? Does the url list other bios's
or just yours?

Hi Trapper,
I installed the bios update. It did slow down the cd boot up time, but
still no
go.
So, I noticed I had a 52x drive in an old computer that is not connected,
so I
swapped drives. Now it boots just fine. Before, the cd light would just
blink
once, now it blinks mucho and it boots the cds.
