Compaq Persario SR5708F freezes

I cannot get into the bios. I went to Hp's website on this model, instructions are to press F10 right at start up, I did, but it displays Entering Setup... and does not move. Is there a jumper on the Mobo to reset the bios? 
The only thing that appears when I boot is the Compaq logo with the options F11 for recovery, Esc to boot menu and F10 to enter setup. I swapped out a hd earlier, trying to take a short cut, but I got the same message on the screen. It won't read CD Rom disk(i tried inputting a XP disk and a Ultimate CD) the green light comes on(the DVD-rom) but nothing happens. I don't think a recovery CD will work until I get it to response on the screen.
