    I would reboot and press DEL multiple times until the BIOS password prompt shows (press enter), or it takes you directly into the BIOS.

    The version is right on the first screen.

    If you are unable to reboot and catch it with DEL, i recommend shutting down/powering off first. Then upon powering on, press DEL several times.

    I'm on the BIOS page , but there's so many different version numbers! :(

    Core Version 5.12
    Project Version UPA1A 0.31 x64

    And then at the bottom outside the scrollable area it says: Version 2.18.1263

    Is it one of those?

    Strangely, my 'BIOS Information' line is empty :(

    Maybe because I'm on the UP Squared?

    But anyway all is fine now, I was able to conclude I had 1.8 by the project date. I've now updated the bios to 2.1 and the date updated.

    Thanks

    That would have made for a good screenshot if you could have taken a picture before upgrading.

    My screenshot was for my UP Squared as well, which was 1.8.
