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?
Try clearing BIOS:
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)
