It takes the older type PARALLEL PORT connected PRINTER and you tap the PRINT SCREEN key when you see what you want.

It all depends on your computer

In reply to: What command did you use to...

Different systems use differeent commands to enter the BIOS. The early bootup screen should say something like
Press <xxx> to enter setup,
where xxx may be F2, or DEL, or some other key combo.

When you get into the BIOS, be sure you photograph all the appropriate pages and sub-pages. This may require ten or more photos.
