Question about Dell OptiPlex GX270 PC Desktop
You'll have to remove the the RTC clock battery to reset the BIOS, it's located on your motherboard. It's usually a coin-sized metallic thingy placed in a holder.
Unplug the power cord, remove the battery and push the frontside power button a couple of times to bleed it, then leave it for 5 minutes. Then replug it and start it up without the battery and check that it's reset (i.e. you should now be able to enter the BIOS hassle free).
If it's not the case, reboot the computer and repeat.
Turn it off and unplug it again and put the RTC battery back in place, and don't forget to set the time and date since it's now reset.
