    how to read bios date and version?

    I am just wondering if anybody can find me a sample code to read BIOS date using C or C++.

    Thanks a lot.

    It's in the registry if that helps...

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\HARDWARE\DESCRIPTION\System

    Cool Re: how to read bios date and version?

    Yes you can

    you will use outp() and inp().

    outp(0x70,{put the bios address here 1 to 128});

    read the value with

    inp(0x71);
