Acer aspire 4520 boot up

My laptop allows me to press the power button and it will do a patial boot sequence and shut down then it will start the whole process over again. I want to interupt this cycle and re-flash the BIOS. I have tried both a bootable CD and USB drive with no luck. I do not have a diskette drive. The only thing to affect the cycle is when I press FN F2 the computer does not shut down but leaves the power switch on. During the cycles the hard drive and other indicators will flash.

Thanks in advance

not being a forum user I am very confused by the fact that my question seems to have the answer I was given wiped out. The answer did not work so I still have the problem if anybody else wants to give it a shot.
For those who want to know I was advised to disconnect the harddrive remove some memory and connect to an external monitor.
