    interupts?

    Not sure if this is an OS dependant question but
    I run linux so i posted it here.

    When accessing cmos via bios , I can read cpu temp
    fan speed etc. Question is, how could I go about doing
    this through C. From what I have picked up is that these
    bytes, strings etc are held in rom and to view them I would
    just have to find the location of memory it resides in . Is this
    true, and if so, where do I find this memory.


    Thank You

    this is data is collected by the motherboard and stored somewhere in a rom on the board. this is very hardware dependant, consult the motherboard technical spec, you may find you need to use assemlber to get the register bit.
