I want to do a system recovery because WIndows 7 has accumulated some errors that prevent me using some programs and I was wondering if:
1: The system recovery reinstalls original BIOS or not ?
The reason why it is so important for me to know is because i upgraded to a graphics card that required a BIOS update, getting only a black screen otherwise...
According to the info on system recovery it says it reinstalls hardware drivers so I am expecting that to include the BIOS but just wanted to be sure...
2+3: There is a BIOS update for my PC under windows 8 options that says once installed, it cannot be reverted to a previous version. Will system recovery still be able to rewrite the BIOS to a previous one? If I install that BIOS version, will it cause problems for my windows 7 system recovery ?
Thanks for your attention !!!

System Recovery only affects the contents of the hard drive; it has nothing to do with the BIOS.
