Old School Monday: Knowing Your BIOS

Amber Bouman

Last weeks Old School Monday featured a 1997 white paper explaining RAM - and since it was so popular, we thought we'd give you another one. Up this week, Knowing Your BIOS--courtesy of the June 1997 issue of Boot. It's actually hard to believe that an aspect of computing could have changed so little in 14 years, but the ancient BIOS is finally on the way out. So, read on for a historical perspective on the ins and outs of BIOS and PC performance and stay tuned, next week we'll cover magnets. (How do they work?)
