    I think it powers up, because I hear noise coming from it, like a fan and next to the power button it turns on two lights one is a 9 inside a padlock and an A inside a padlock, but nothing on screen.

    New laptop, lags on youtube videos. The laptop was on display at the store for two days and seems perfectly fine other than this issue.

    I have tried searching for a solution to my problem for a few months now to no avail. I can not afford to replace it anytime in the near future due to bills and vehicle maintenance.

You may be in for some trouble, a failed bios update isn't always an easy fix. if you can find the cmos battery try to remove that for a few seconds. you will also need a disk version of the bios, download that from dell on another computer and copy it to floppy or cd and see if you can boot to that and reinstall the bios.

when you press the power button what happens, does it light up and run the fan? Nothing appears on the screen?
