So what I read in guide books turns out to be way out of date, does that mean that I have to go to the maker to get those details as the majoraty of machines I come across will be oldish castoffs. Any site that has this type of information then , something like Driversall but for bleep sounds then? I thought there was some type of rule of thumb here.

btw, glad to see that you are all friends then.

You should be able to find out what the BIOS is during the POST screen.. It should say right up at the top when the system first boots up..
