    Problems with BIOS

      My motherboard is an Intel DP35DP and my vodeo card is a GeForce 8400 GS 512MB. Recenty I used Express method to update the BIOS. Under the new BIOS version its seems to me that the booting is slower and there are lots of black sleeping screens between flashing before Windows takes over. I think that I should restore the previous version of the BIOS but I don't know how. Please help! PS. I am thinking of replacing the motherboard but unfortunately, the OS/Vista version is an OEM.

          Hi there,


          Instructions for Recovery BIOS Updates
          In the unlikely event that a BIOS update is interrupted, it is possible the BIOS may be left in an unusable state. The recovery process requires the chassis to be opened to move the onboard BIOS Configuration Jumper.
          WARNING: This process is intended to be performed by a trained technician.
          Recovery with Formatted USB Stick

          1. Copy the recovery file (*.bio) to a formatted usb disk. Download the corresponding BIOS version BIO file
          2. Place the usb disk in the target system.
          3. Shut down the system and unplug AC power.
          4. Open the chassis and remove the BIOS Configuration Jumper. See the Technical Product Specification for details including the location of this jumper.
          5. Power the system on.
          6. Wait 2-5 minutes for the update to complete. When the usb drive LED is lit, the system is copying the recovery code into the FLASH device.
          7. System will either turn off when the recovery process is completed or it will prompt you to turn off the system.
          8. Remove usb disk
          9. Replace the BIOS Configuration Jumper.
          10. Restart system.
