My computer refused to let me delete two documents from my hdd. Booted into safe mode and deleted the documents. After resart the computer refused to read the bios. Did a hard boot several times with no result. Consulted a friend who recommended a CMOS clear procidue.

Re-assemble Jonny Five to the best and original state you can.
Hold down WIN key + B then press power on Button.
If the BIOS has been erased/replaced then you may need to set all the parameters. like Date, Time, Boot Sequence, installed memory, Drives and peripherals.
You need to press the ESC key etc at POWER ON and not wait for any screen to appear.
If in doubt please ask.

I have hold down Win key + B but nothing happend. Still the unit show the described screens and then nothing.
Can not enter bios and the unit does not boot from ssd, optical or USB.
For me it seems to be a corrupted BIOS ?!

The WIN key + B is to repair a BIOS, and perhaps yours did not need a repair.
Not sure what OS you are running, but this may be a later version than you have installed.
It does not solve your non booting problem. But I don't know what media or OS you are trying to boot on what?
So you may have an usable machine. F10 fails.
