This is a flash bios bug. Updating your bios should remedy this.

OK, the error is suggesting that your BIOS revision is out of date. You need to flash to the latest one.

Also, I too have seen that it could be related to overheating. An upgraded BIOS could solve fan issues, which are directly controlled by the BIOS in Dell laptops. This is a common issue with Dell.
