Hi,

The contet of the file looks like this:

Some of the text from the file

This should help you

$Found = "No"
$TxtFile = "Full path to text file"
$OpenedTxtFile = FileOpen($TxtFile, 0)
If $OpenedTxtFile = -1 Then
   MsgBox(48, "Error!", "File could not be opened. " & @CRLF _
      & "1. Enter a valid path" & @CRLF _
      & "2. Check if the file exists" & @CRLF _
      & "3. Make sure you have access to the file" & @CRLF _
      & "4. Check if the file is not opened by another program/script")
   Exit
EndIf

While 1
   $Line = FileReadLine($OpenedTxtFile)
   If @error Then ExitLoop
   
   If StringInStr($Line, "BIOS") Then
     ;things you want do when matched
      $Found = "Yes"
      MsgBox(0, "Found!", $Line)
     ;other things you want do when matched
   EndIf
WEnd

;Other code when finshed
If $Found = "No" Then
   MsgBox(0, "Not found!", "AutoIt could not find the string you were searching for.")
EndIf
