OK, I talked to a SONY Tech about resetting the BIOS to default and he gave me the steps to do that. Now.. I don't know in which way resetting the BIOS will affect my system and the tech told me that once I reset the BIOS to default I will not be able to reverse the settings to the present. I would like to know, since the BIOS is part of the OS, when I create a FULL backup image will that include the present BIOS setings? and if I reset the BIOS to default and it does not solve the problem... Can I get back the current BIOS settings BY RESTORING THE IMAGE? I mean, if I create a digital image of my entire system, I suppose that it will include the present BIOS settings and then when I restore the BIOS to default and I don't like it, then BY restoring the digital image that I created I will be also restoring the BIOS settings as they were when I created the image? (just in case something goes wrong after resetting BIOS to default) I am a little afraid of restoring BIOS to default (factory settings) and then how it will affect my software or printer capabilities or the USB 2.0 Belkin Card specially after SP2. I don't know very well what is the function of the BIOS on the OS. I was told that it will not affect my software since the BIOS regulates the way the OS interacts or communicates with the printer, Disk Drives, etc. and if I reset the BIOS to default and it does not communicate well with the printer or whatever...? I need to get some info about the BIOS in relationship with my restoration problem becaus I was told by the tech that I can not change the BIOS by individual settings, that the BIOS is changed as a WHOLE. And once the BIOS is set to default I can not reverse the process (that's why I want to know if I can restore the present BIOS settings by restoring the IMAGE). I am still trying to decide whether it is worth or not to restore BIOS settings to default.
