I was updating the BIOS on my Dell Mini 10v, when something went wrong, and it is now bricked. I've read guides online and they are too confusing. Could someone tell me how to fix this?

what exactly is it doing, how far into the booting does it get, if anywhere? any error messages? or is the screen just blank?

If the bios are corrupt, there is not much you can do but to talk with the OEM, you may need to send it in to get the bios re-flashed by them, unless you have the binaries for the bios and a programmer.

That does not mean it is a BIOS issue, based on the information that has been provided I would first conclude a power or general motherboard failure.
