Hi guys, I'm looking for (hopefully a free) utility that allows you to capture 'screen dumps' of the bios. I did think about taking photos of the screen but there must be some utility?

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

Well its always been the same old problem with trying to capture the screen dumps of the bios, I remember in at college using a doggy 35mm camera taking photos and them anotating them for a project. I did think by now there would be a way to capture the data. Infact looking through some old documentation I wrote back in 1996, you were able to output a screen print to the printer providing it was attached to the PC via the parallel cable.

So camer it is, at least the development of monitors has progressed, trying to take pictures of a CRT screen was awful what with the banding that appeared on the photograph.

Thanks for the reply, just thought I'd put it out there, you never know what you'll find! :thumbsup:

A superior guide to a specific bios would be captured with video output, it could then be recorded to dvd and edited and compressed etc
