Hi forum,

 

I'm not often to check my BIOS's version and its info.  Do you know where in Windows I can see the BOIS info ?

 

I know one way is to power on and then press some function key, then jump into a DOS UI, which is the BIOS UI, right ?

 

Thanks guys.

Correct cuhkwan :) one way is booting to your BIOS setup which is outside Windows but when in Windows, see http://www.wikihow.com/Check-BIOS-Versio

Some free 3rd party softwares you can use also is SIW home edition http://www.gtopala.com/siw-download.php or Speccy http://www.piriform.com/speccy/download

I always check by going to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\HARDWARE\DESCRIPTION\System\BIOS. I don't know if thats accurate for everyone though.
