Can't enter BIOS and can't boot OS!!!

HEY! I really need help. I have a MSI Gs70 Stealth Pro 2qe laptop. Today I wanted to update the bios to the newest version, I it the way msi says how it should be done. Suddenly the screen froze and the laptop shut down. I tried rebooting but it doesnt want to!!!! Everytime I start the notebook a red box appears "secure boot violation" pease enter setup.... BUT I CAN'T ENTER THE SETUP. For msi laptops its always delete but when I press the key to boot into bios (uefi) the screen is black with a Single underline somewhere near the middle of the screen!!! Same happens when I try F10 which is booting from device. When I press F11 the screen is black and it says "no media found", also near the middle of the screen and no curser blinking!
At first I unplugged everything, tried again, no chance. Then I unscrewed the laptop and removed the battery for half an hour, still same problem. Then l went a step further and unscrewed the whole motherboard and removed the tiny battery im order to restore bios settings. Then I wanted to boot into bios again, bit same problem still exists, it only took a bit longer. I dont know what to do!!!!!
Before the bios update windows 10 ran perfetcly

MSI GS70 2QE Stealth Pro

I have a question.

Why the BIOS update? I only do that on new machines and on older ones with GOOD REASON. I don't see a good reason here.

Anyhow it's time to ask MSI how to recover from a bad BIOS flash. AKA "bricked".
