Dell ships a program with their systems that lets you see and set various BIOS settings from Windows. I don't know if any other vendors do the same thing.

There is a really useful utility called bios agent (http://download.esupport.com/biosagent/ba.exe). It only shows the info with no modification ability though.
But if you were asking about how to get the info programmatically, this i don't know.

You might be able to do it with WinIO http://www.internals.com/utilities_main.htm, it's a ring0 kernel-mode device driver that allows you to directly access I/O ports and physical memory. I saw an example of reading CMOS memory with it in PowerBASIC.
