Dell Optiplex 7010 USFF corrupted BIOS

I have recently tried to update the BIOS on my Dell Optiplex 7010 USFF and when it restarted, there was a power-outage at about 50%.

Now if I turn it on, it shuts itself down after 2-3 seconds, turns on again after 10 seconds and keeps doing this until I pull the plug.

Is there any way to repair this?

csenger41,

You can click the link below to create the bios on a bootable usb disk. Read all the instructions.

Try clearing BIOS:

Power off/unplug

Press/hold power button for ~15 sec

Open case and remove motherboard battery

Press/hold power button for ~30 sec

Reinstall battery and close up

See if it boots now with only mouse, monitor, and keyboard connected (and your fingers x'd)

The computer doesn't get to the BIOS screen at all, it is stuck at a black screen and then keeps restarting.

Any ideas for this case?
