I made a change in the BIOS to try and get the new Harddrive to Boot. Now it is a Black Screen, and I cannot find any Post in Dell, or other google searches to help me reset the BIOS..
Is there a way to use a Jumper/Pin Etc.. to reset/clear the BIOS ?
I have tried several methods already, and BIOS still won't reset.
Tried these already. Removed all power, CMOS Battery, FAIL!
removed Drives and memory, held END and plugged in power, Fans ran for 5mins, did not do anything.
Tried installing Drives, RAM, 1 at a time, Nothing..
Looked for Jumpers from video for an R3, Jumpers do not exist for the R1.
Any Help Would be greatly appreciated, We just spent $500 for updated Graphics and SSD.. Cannot spend another dime on a system board.

Please Help! Thanks in advanced.

Thanks for the Reply, unfortunately, none of these methods have worked, and the USB flash recovery is not available for the 17. I want to try USB flash from a connected Harddrive, however, the BIOS I downloaded from Dell is an EXE file, I extracted the files with 7zp, and the files don't seem to have a flash file, Here is a List.. Does anyone know which file is the actual Flash File?

Ding.wav
files.txt
FlsHook.exe
FlsHookDll.dll
FWUpdLcl.exe
InsydeFlash.exe
iscflash.dll
iscflash.sys
iscflashx64.sys
xerces-c_2_7.dll
