Desktop stuck in bios

I was playing cs go when it crashed I opened it back up and 20 min later it crashed again. This time I couldn't load windows. It told me adapters aren't found or whatever . I've been stuck with this problem then later it started telling me media test failure check cable and no boot device found. I'm fairly new to these kind of things. If you can help me or give me any tips that would be great.

Reading the manual (p.49+) it looks like F12 should get you to a diagnostic/trouble shooting menu. Does it not?

RE: Desktop stuck in bios

I have a Dell Inspirion desktop computer that some one I trusted put an username and password lock on it and I don't know the password lock on it. Is there a way that you can help me remove that lock. This person didn't have permission to do that.
