A BIOS manual? Never seen one from a motherboard maker. Not sure that I
have ever seen one at all.

Motherboard makers buy the BIOS chips from a different manufacturer. Or
at least they used to do that. What you might find are BIOS updates and
patches. But again those usually come for the maker of the BIOS. What
you *probably* have is a .exe to change your BIOS or something on the
MB. Drivers and things maybe. *Could* be a bad thing. Those are WinRar
BTW not WinZip files.

When you *first boot* there is a screen that usually flashes by very
quickly. At the very top will be the name and all the other information
of your BIOS. As I said - goes by fast.  :-) You might have to boot
several times to get it all. It helps if there are two of you. One to
read out loud and one to write.

Does this help?
