So here's the deal. I'm considering flashing an "unlocked" BIOS to my notebook so I can overclock the processor. I'm running a Inspiron 1545 with Win7, a Core2Duo T9400m(2.53 Ghz, 6Mb Cache, FSB 1066MHz, 4Gb RAM DDR2. I got room to overclock because I recently repasted and made a cooling mod, so i get around 55°C at load. My question is, if I'm not able to flash the bios correctly, is there anyway that I could reset the BIOS to the Factory-Shipped Bios? Something like a BIOS backup or reflasher? I think that the BIOS "Backup" plan is a good shot, but how to?

Thanks in advance

You can download the current Bios and apply it the same way as the unlocked firmware –  Ramhound Mar 7 '14 at 0:50
