drives wont work

Right now I use a windows 7 machine but I also want to set up an old Dell Optiplex GX110 to run Linux in addition. It was a computer that I lent to my brother. Unfortunately when I got the machine back I booted it up and none of the drives are recognized (floppy, optical, or hard drive). Nothing was done to the hardware so I guess there must be a problem with the bios (correct me if I'm wrong on this). Normally I would just flash the bios but I can't because the floppy drive isn't recognized. If any one knows a way to flash the bios without the use of any drives it would be helpful. Also, if any thinks they know a different reason why the machine might not be working let me know.
