I updated the Bios but it's not working. After I reboot my PC, it doesn't boot anything include the Dell logo? Now what will i do ? 

My device is: Dell Vostro 5480

RE: BIOS

You forced it off before the update was finished.  You bricked the machine its dead forever.

The solution is to replace the motherboard.

If there's a Dell warranty in effect, contact Dell Technical Support about replacing the motherboard.

Explain that you attempted to update the Bios using the Dell supplied file from Dell's File download.

RE: BIOS

You can try clearing BIOS:

  1. Power off, unplug
  2. Press/hold power button for ~15 sec
  3. Open case and remove motherboard battery
  4. Press/hold power button for ~30 sec
  5. Reinstall the battery (right-side-up!)
  6. Close case and try to boot with only mouse, monitor and keyboard connected.
