dmidecode it should provide a lot of information about your BIOS settings.
From thier website:
dmidecode is packaged for several Linux and BSD distributions (Debian, Gentoo, openSUSE and FreeBSD among others), either as a single package or included in a more generic tool set.
It should be on the repos of your distro, or installed on your system already.
