    Question How to Query the BIOS?

    I'm writing a program that adds all my company's computers' information to a database. I've got the RAM, processor, hard drive space, etc. already and just need the models and serial numbers. They're all Dells and I've searched the registry and can't find anything. I know, however, that the information is listed in the BIOS at the top of the main page. How can I access that from a program?

    Thanks!

    You can however, I do that this data is in the registry. I'm not sure what OS you are using so I can't be more specific. Look at msdn for more info.
