how did you upgrade, where did the bios come from and what were you trying to solve? Sounds like a recovery is needed and that will have to be done by the service center, you need to bring the original purchase receipt then.

I downloaded the BIOS upgrade from dell website. And I was flashing the BIOS using a windows utility. I was updating all of my drivers as I had just installed the Win 7 OS, when it happened.

So let me get this straight. You were flashing the BIOS and loading drivers at the same time, which required a restart. Congrats, you now have a very expensive brick. Send it back to Dell, this won't be covered under warranty, so be prepared to pay for a new motherboard and service charges.
