OT: ASUSTek O.C. Profile Utility B334
this request isn't Debian related. The clock of my Debian's PC become
slow, when the PC is shut down, so I guess I need to replace the
battery. I don't get any battery warning, so I'm not sure.
I'm looking for the easiest way, to restore the Phoenix BIOS settings of
my ASUS M2A-VM2 HDMI mobo.
Using the "AUSTek O.C. Profile Utility B334" I saved the BIOS settings
to a file named "B30SEP11.CMO".
Then I edited "AMD Cool'n'Quit Function" from [Auto] to [Disabled] and
saved the settings to a file named "BCOOLOFF.CMO".
After this I edited the option to [auto], the original setting. I saved
it as "BCOOLON.CMO".
I expected that the files "B30SEP11.CMO" and "BCOOLOFF.CMO" differ,
while the files "B30SEP11.CMO" and "BCOOLON.CMO" shouldn't differ.
All files need 304 bytes.
This is the output of diff:
spinymouse@debian:/media/INTENSO$ diff B30SEP11.CMO BCOOLOFF.CMO
Binary files B30SEP11.CMO and BCOOLOFF.CMO differ
spinymouse@debian:/media/INTENSO$ diff B30SEP11.CMO BCOOLON.CMO
Binary files B30SEP11.CMO and BCOOLON.CMO differ
Why do the files B30SEP11.CMO and BCOOLON.CMO differ? They should have
saved the same settings.
Is it unsafe to backup the BIOS? Do I need to write down settings and to
restore them manually, after the battery is replaced? Could it be
something idiotic, like a saved time, that makes the files differ?
Has everybody ever restored a BIOS profile using "AUSTek O.C. Profile
