This is the first page you'll see when you get into this particular BIOS. Other computer manufacturers produce their own BIOS software/firmware.

The appearance and features of the various BIOS configurations from various manufacturers vary significantly. Above, you can see that the 'Standard CMOS Features' is selected.

As I mentioned earlier, the computer without software (or firmware) is essentially useless.

For most of our day to day use, the main operating system (Windows, Linux...) determines the capabilities of a computer.

The Super BIOS protect protects the computer's BIOS information from malicious software that tries to destroy the BIOS data.

If the BIOS information is completely destroyed, the computer can not be booted and, if the BIOS IC isn't replaceable (installed in a socket vs soldered in place), the motherboard has to be replaced.

Before I go any further, I should tell you that you should not go into the BIOS unless you either know what you're doing or you're working on a computer that is unimportant to you or anyone who may need it.

While it's relatively difficult to destroy data by changing values in the BIOS, it IS easy to make changes that would prevent the computer from booting.

The information in the BIOS allows the computer to interface with the monitor, keyboard and mouse (among other things) until the OS can take over.
