Windows 7 Plug & Play OS Bios Setting

Thanks in advance!

Since I'm running Windows 7, should I set my bios setting to: Plug & Play O/S yes, or no?

Again, thanks!

From what I've read, that's only for earlier versions of Windows like Windows 95. Windows 7 just ignores it and does what it wants anyway... I leave mine at the default setting of No.

Set it to no. Choosing No means the BIOS will configure settings. This is a legacy setting for 95 and 98. Default will be no. A Guy

Thanks, Erica, and, A Guy, that does indeed make sense.

I will keep it at "no."

Thanks, everyone! I deeply appreciate it!

Suppress Plug and Play UI
Is there anything in Windows 7 that will suppress the UI pop-ups when a new device is attached to a computer? There was something like it in XP. See this: Hotfix adds new functionality to suppress Plug and Play-related UI messages in Windows Server 2003 or in Windows XP.
