    If "not booting ... black screen" then it is not of any use resetting the bios.
    Probably your motherboard must be changed
    If the motherboard do not boot at all you cannot fix it resetting bios settings, this will just load default options for bios, but bios must work already.
    If you cannot identify bios reste jumper, take out the coin shape battery and put it back, it has exactly the same effect.
    You may need to change the motherboard or some other component.

    you need to check HDD slave/master settings, check the jumper at the back of hd.
    On some bios you also need to do hd detection first, and then save bios settings,

I cannot recover my bios password could someone help plz?


Most motherboards have a jumper switch usually situated close to the CMOS battery. The jumper usually connects over 2 pins with an open pin next to these. By moving the jumper over to the open & center pin you will reset all BIOS settings, including your BIOS password. Move the jumper back to its original position before turning your PC on.
In some instances you will find no BIOS jumper. In such a case you can clear the password by removing the CMOS battery from the motherboard for a few seconds and then replacing it.

How can i reset my bios password ,logged out/dell computer

You can call Dell and they can reset the bios password for you. But if it doesn't have a warranty anymore you can simple open the casing of your computer and there's pin(jumper) on the motherboard that you can pull out and then put it back in. The password will be reset.

I updated the bios and now it will not boot up

There is NO real reason why you cannot reflash your bios back to the way it was.... You simply need to find out what type your, bios is... and there are many programs that will address your BIOS and re-flash it. This is unless your BIOS is so broken that the machine will NOT even read a DVD memory stick or driver at all. What happens if you try again?
Some links below... all about it.;...

Hi, To access or enter motherboard BIOS settings, on powerup either F2 or Del. If you just want to remove the password in your Dell Optiplex > The BIOS password may be cleared by removing the password jumper (PSWD) on the motherboard. This will also clear all CMOS settings: Open your casing, on your motherboard. find the CMOS password reset jumper (3-pin) on the motherboard; Remove the jumper from pins 1 and 2 and put it on pins 2 and 3 for about 5 seconds. Replace back the jumper on pins 1 and 2. Hope this be of help/idea. Good luck and kind regards.
