Vostro 3700 BIOS update failure

I have a Vostro 3700 running Windows 10. I checked the Dell support site for updates and found that it was recommended that I upgrade the BIOS. I downloaded the file and ran it. All seemed to be going well until the process was almost complete. The screen went blank, the fan speed went up and then nothing happened. I waited for ten minutes or so but, sadly, nothing now works. When I switch on the machine the lights cycle but then the machine turns off. The screen is blank with no Dell logo. Is there a way I can fix this? I am fairly knowledgeable about PCs.

I understand that the BIOS can be reflashed from a USB stick on some machines. Can I do this with the Vostro 3700?

Bill.
