bios Print?

Archived from groups: comp.periphs.printers (More info?)

As u all know, when you press delete at startup u get the bios on the
screen. I would like to know if it is possible to print a copy of all the
settings in each subject individually& if so how? I have tried pressing the
print key but doesnt work. Printer works very well, HP office jet 2140. I
would love to have a printout of the settings for the day when it goes
wrong, and it will.

Thanks! Paul

    I doubt it's possible, except with some extra program (if it exists). But
    one option is to shoot each screen with digital camera and print it.

    allows you to save all of the bios settings to a text file on the
    floppy. Later, you can open and print the settings from Notepad. It may
    work on motherboards other than Asus if they are using Award bios but I
    have never done so.

    I haven't done it for a while, but the "Prt Scr" button on my keyboard
    works for me. I can't remember for sure, but I think it's "Shift" +
    "Prt Scr".

    It's not easy to get to but it is possible. I just tried it. It took a
    couple of tries but eventually I was able to get through and download
    the file. I also verified that the two utilities are included in the
    aflash file. Currently, if you click on the download link for the German
    site main web page you are redirected to the Italian site. The Italian
    site aflash file does not include the utilities.
    When you click on the ftp link, if there are less than 100 users, you
    will be prompted to login. Just log in anonymously. When there are more
    than 100 users logged you will just have to keep trying. Sometimes, I
    don't know why, you can get in at the root level, for instance
    ftp://ftp.asuscom.de and then navigate your way through the folders.
    If all else fails email me and I will reply with the file. It's 48K.

    Like I said earlier, the Bios Print thing is in there, at least it was
    for me 6 hours earlier when I tried it. DL the German version Aflash
    version 2.21 file. Unzip it. Inside you will find a file called
    CMOS.exe. The file size is 48K. I can't understand why it is not working
    for you but if you email me and I will send it to you.
