Just thought I'd give you my 2 cents on "The Bios Companion" The front cover pretty much says it all -- "The book that should have come with your motherboard" I am quite impressed with the vast bios settings covered and the background information provided about memory, buses etc. Some settings were only touched upon but, I think the important information came through when I needed it and there's sooo much in there, after all. Thanks to Phil Croucher for a respectable piece of work. -- Anthony Moretta
Regards the BIOS book, I used it the day it arrived and at least twice a week since. I work seven days a week. I will, I have no doubt, continue to use it for as long as the pages don't fall out and become un-readable. PS My wife is a technician as well and refers to the book as often as I. -- Bob --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
