Title says it all. I want to write down all the information in my Bios just in case. Had a bad fall with my last laptop and had to look all over the box.

Stupid, stupid CMOS Battery.

Anyone who can tell me the shortcut?

Here's a breakdown of how to do it from startup or from Windows (http://www.asus.com/support/Knowledge-Detail/3/521/G750JH/E02C02CF-60B6-4500-9681-0F401C8420CD/). Alternatively, you can access the BIOS setup by pressing or holding the Del key at startup, which brings you to the boot options menu; that menu has an option to enter setup as well. :)

Didn't show the information I wanted. Where can I find my serial key embedded in the Bios through DOS?

Even though your product key is embedded in BIOS I don't believe you can actually view it, but you should be able to extract it via a program like Belarc Advisor.

"FYI,
if you really want your key from bios from your windows 7 go to
rweverything.com/downloads/RwPortableX64V1.6.5.zip
its a portable app.
Run the program Rw.exe, go to Access, click ACPI tables and when the window appears go to the MSDM tab. Your key is displayed there. "

Yep, if you're using Windoze 8 with UEFI install, you cannot get into BIOS from a cold boot. You need to do so, after 1st boot of your laptop, rebooting it and spam hitting del or F2 to access BIOS....it's the way it is, as i've read multiple times on the Forums here.
