Windows 7: Event Viewer Category For CMOS/BIOS Reset

Event Viewer Category For CMOS/BIOS Reset

If there is an Event Viewer category that records each time I reset my CMOS settings in my BIOS setup as I log in, I don't know what to call it. Perhaps it makes no sense to look for it as a Windows event since it happens before the operating system is loaded.

I'm troubleshooting and I'd like to know the system clock time for a reset I may have done on 5/21/14. I have a digital photo of a reset screen with a BIOS time reading of 16:35:18. I'd like to know if I ran one more reset in the previous 5 minutes. Is there a system record of this somewhere?

You are correct... there will not be a BIOS reset entry in the OS logs.

Look around in the BIOS interface for BIOS logs.
