You can get the info from aida32. First ensure you're displaying all the options. Launch aida32 then file > preferences > summary then click select all then ok. Then seelct computer > dmi > bios and you should see the version there

Glad I could help. Sorry can't help on how to do it. Never had the need. Suggest you start a new thread and someone will be able to advise. Good luck - K ;-)
