Computer not POSTing when I edit bios

I'm trying to get the desktop loaded up on a computer I'm working on, when I try to make the dvd drive the 1st boot device the computer will not display anything. I tried removing the battery and jumper, after doing that it just sets the floppy to the 1st drive, and its just a non stop cycle. Something else is that it used to tell me there was a CPU fan error, now I'm not getting one

  1. It doesn't automatically boot from the DVD drive if no HDD is installed?
  2. I'll try and see if it does, but what good will that do?

    Edit : I took out the battery and the jumper for 10 minutes and after I replaced them and booted, the computer went to the desktop, I rebooted it and the same problems started
  3. Oh, I thought you were trying to install an OS. How old is the PC and how long had it been working before it started acting up?
