One more before I go to bed a CMOS utilitie That saves and read's all that's nessasery so your Computer will work. If you want this one then Post me by the Yellow Envelope to the left THIS IS WHAT IT DOES
This program is a read, write, and compare utility for the CMOS memory found in 286 and "newer computers". It is designed for use in batch files by utilizing command line parameters as needed. It was created to fill the niche left by all the other CMOS utilities...command line operation. This is especially valuable if the computer operator is a relative newcomer to computing because this utility will automatically insure that the CMOS data is correct. How many people know the CMOS drive type for their hard drive without looking it up? Some computers won't even start if the CMOS info is incorrect...This little program fixes all those problems quietly and automatically. On-line documentation is provided in the .EXE file. In keeping with the intent of batch file operation, return status values are provided for use with the ERRORLEVEL batch file function. The CMOS data is stored as a 66 byte binary file. This file is a true image of the 64 bytes of CMOS data plus two checksum bytes. The checksum bytes are used to validate the stored CMOS data before any restore operations are allowed. This prevents disk or data file corruption from destroying the contents of CMOS memory. The CMOS data is read via CPU ports 70h and 71h which bypasses any CMOS password scheme. This is handy if some unauthorized person has changed the CMOS access password. If you have the image file saved you can easily restore the correct password. This utility does not crack the password encryption used by some BIOS manufacturers. It simply saves the raw image after encryption.
