Did you tried to do clear CMOS to see if it fixes your issue to boot on the CD/DVD ?
Anyway, if you want to upgrade your BIOS, you will first need a valid BIOS image of your computer/motherboard. Do you have it ?

I did go to the FAQ on your website and clicked on "How Do I Use Flashrom". The attached screenshot is what I got. So, how do I use this program. I would not mind paying someone a few bucks to remotely re configure my BIOS. I think that it has been hacked and modified.

Name is Alan. I am running an older Compaq Presario Desktop PC the model number is SR2264WM. it is an AMD 64 Athlion model. The operating system is Ubuntu 10.04. I just loved this OS and failed to upgrade before it was too late as it is now unsupported. So I downloaded Ubuntu 15.04 and was preparing to install it. All of a sudden my BIOS will not go to the boot menu when I press the ESC key upon startup, like it used to do. Although I downloaded flashrom from the Ubuntu Software Center, I am unable to find it on my PC and access the program to reset my BIOS. So how do I access this program? Your suggestions and advise will be greatly appreciated.
