Monitoring system temp on desktop in Win98, can it be done?
I just installed a BH6 motherboard and noticed a system temp display in the bios.
Does anyone know of a progy that will allow you to view the system temp in Win98?
Since the BIOS has code to read the temp all a person would have to do is write a Win32 GUI app (e.g. C++,Java) that does a little inline ASM to call the BIOS routine to fetch the temp.
I just got a BH6 and was going to do this myself. The hard part will be trying to find the BIOS function that fetches the temp.
I think I ran across a program that sits in your icon tray and tells you the temp for those MB's, you might try a search for temp monitors or even the particular temp monitor chip (i.e. mine is a winbond).
"sandra" does this.

I found the progy that cobrien was talking about, just what I had in mine.
I did dl the Sandra progy, man thats like the swiss army knife of diag tools. I like it so much I am going to buy the full version.
About that progy. What is it and where did you find it?
