Restoring my old bios version

Hi guys,and thanks for taking some time to read my post..
I recently flashed my bios,with a version I found on lenovo's website,and it works pretty good,but the only problem is that I noticed a decrease in gaming performance.The software I downloaded from their website is called WinPlash64,and it suggested that I make a backup of my bios version before flashing it,and thats what I did,now I do have the backup file,its called ''FLASHABL.bak'' but the problem is that I dont know how to use it..Please help me ! thank you again !

 

My laptop : Lenovo ideapad u450p

Re: Restoring my old bios version

there is a folder named bios on c volume ( c:/bios ) it should be a file called bios.bak. rename it to "newbios.wph" and process the bios update again.

Re: Restoring my old bios version

Hi and thanks for answering ..

When I go to C drive,I can't find the folder called bios,I have to go to :  C/temp/bios202 and then,I find some files like bios.wph and winphlash64 and some others..

Plus the backup the software made before flashing is called FLASHABL.bak , not bios ?!

thanks for the answer =)

Re: Restoring my old bios version

According to your reply,will naming the backup the software made before flashing from FLASHABL.bak  to  newbios.wph and putting it in the software folder (bios202) solve the problem ?
