I have been in my bios the last couple of days as well. I just installed a vid card and was trying to disable the onboard video. At least with my system when I get into the bios the right side of the screen gives a description of things that are in your list as you highlight them. Maybe your system is not like that as apparently these things can vary greatly from one motherboard to the next. I would be interested to hear how you make out as it might help me as well.
