deleting files on the BIOS?

by sharpiesharp / February 2, 2006 12:50 PM PST

hey whats up guys? I just wanted to ask and see if there is anyway to get files you added to the BIOS off cause not to long ago a friend of mine was trying to get playstation 2 games to work on my computer(since he said he did it on his) and downloaded this BIOS update or patch i guess on my computer which didnt work. So now im trying to get rid of it cause i dont know if it will cause any problems in my normal PC games. I have already tryed a few games and i guess it is working perfectly like before but i just want it gone unless its not a big deal and will not have any big effect on my computer playing normal PC games.

If it ain't broke. . .

There's no way to remove specific items in the BIOS, at least not for anyone but the BIOS creators. You can download a previous version and reflash it. But, again, if it ain't broke. . .

Was the bios data saved?
by Willy / February 2, 2006 10:43 PM PST

The bios is at some version level, (ie: BIOS v.123).
During the bios update, whomever did it usually has the option of saving the old bios data, if not, then you lost it. Hopefully, the bios update(patch) is vailable at the mtrbd./vendor support website, but get the version that was before the new bios update, otherwise, you lost out again, and only the vendor or some bios 3rd party is capable. But, as you stated, "I have already tryed a few games and i guess it is working perfectly like before", then leave it alone.
