When i go to device manager I have about 7 -10 in System Devices that don't have drivers. Also ran Everest and says cpu and MOBO are unknown.
Ok here are some of the System devices that do not have Drivers installed..
Direct Memory
Motherboard resources 3 of them no drivers
Numeric Data
programable interupt
System Speakers
System timer
Unknown device
Some of these are dated Aug 7 2001 Do I have to delete these and install new ones?

So I'm assuming that you have another computer installed with an Asus A8N-E but you're trying to update the bios through the CD? If it's just that CD (other CD's load), then I would direct myself to the Asus website and get the newer BIOS from there. If all the CD's aren't loading/working, then it might have something to do with your optical drive or your boot BIOS. So press delete when it's on the green loadup screen to go into the BIOS and see if it detects your CD drive there. If it's not there, then it might be improperly installed.

Edit: Maybe a windows update too? =/

Hopefully that'll help. Correct me if I'm wrong please. =)
