Before making any modifications to the hardware configuration of the motherboard, the power supply to any areas of the motherboard you plan to modify should be turned off to avoid unnecessary damage to the hardware. User friendly instructions Our objective is to enable the novice computer user to perform the installation by themselves. We have attempted to write this document in a very clear, concise and descriptive manner to help overcome any obstacles you may face during installation. Please read our instructions carefully and follow them step-by-step. There are two ways to attach the motherboard to the base of chassis: zwith stud zor with spacer Please refer the figure below show the studs and spacers, they may have several types, but all look like the figure below: In principle, the best way to attach the motherboard is with studs, and only if you are unable to do this should you attach the board with spacers. Take a careful look at the motherboard and you will see many mounting holes on it.

Just cut the button portion of spacers the spacer may be a little and hard to cut off, so be careful of your hands.

In this way you can still attach the motherboard to the base without worrying about short circuits. Page 12 Chapter 2 Standard External Connectors Inside the case of any computer several cables and plugs have to be connected. These cables and plugs are usually connected one-by-one to connectors located on the motherboard. You need to carefully pay attention to any connection orientation the cables may have and, if any, notice the position of the first pin of the connector.

In the explanations that follow, we will describe the significance of the first pin. Attach the connectors from the power supply to CONT1. Up to four IDE interface devices are supported. Page 17 Installing the Motherboar 3 Jumper and Switches You can set jumper switches on the motherboard to configure various hardware options. See Figure for jumper locations. Throughout this section, the following symbols are used to indicate jumper settings.

For 3-pin jumpers, the symbols below are used: Short Pins 1 and 2 with a jumper cap. Short Pins 2 and 3 with a jumper cap. When you install the motherboard, make sure this jumper is set for Normal Operation See the jumper below. You can refer to it while you install the CPU. There are three Memory module sockets on the system board. Total six banks In order to create a memory array, certain rules must be followed.

This program will not be lost when you turn the computer off. This program is also referred to as the boot program. It is the only channel for the hardware circuit to communicate with the operating system. We will explain these options step by step in the following pages of this chapter, but let us first see a short description of the function keys you may use here: z Press Esc to quit the BIOS Setup.

This feature allows the user to complete more easily the installation procedures. You can install the CPU without configuring any jumpers or switches. The CPU must be setup according its specifications. In the first option, you can press at any time to display all the items that can be chosen for that option. L2 Cache Latency: Sixteen setting are available, Default, and 1 to This item can let you adjust the processor L2 cache speed, the larger the value, the faster the L2 cache will run.

You have to be aware that if you set the L2 cache speed too fast, it will cause the L2 cache to fail. Turn the power supply off and change the CPU. Page 27 Introduction of BIOS If you use non-specification settings for normal operation, your system may not be stable, and may effect system reliability.

Also, we do not guarantee the stability and compatibility for settings that are not within specification, and any damage of any elements on the motherboard or peripherals, is not our responsibility.

Time hh:mm:ss : You can set time information in this item, hour hh , minute mm and second ss. If you need to access data stored in this kind of floppy, you must select this mode, and of course you must have a 3 Mode floppy drive. Halt On: You can select which type of error will cause the system to halt. If you do not really understand each of the options in this menu, we recommend you use default values. In each item, you can press at any time to display all the options for this item.

When the external cache is enabled, the system works faster. The default is Enable. Quick Power On Self Test: After the computer has been powered on, the BIOS of the motherboard will run a series of tests in order to check the system and its peripherals. When this item is enabled, if the BIOS detects no floppy drive, it will display a floppy disk drive error message. If this item is disabled, the BIOS will skip this test.

If the correct password is not given, the system will not start. Two items will be available: Enabled and Disabled. Since the parameters of the buffers are closely related to hardware, if the setup is not correct or false, the motherboard will become unstable or you will not be able to boot up. The default setting is Disabled. Some special peripherals need to use a memory block located between 15M and 16M, and this memory block has a size of 1M.

We recommend that you disable this option. Passive Release: Two options are available: Enabled and Disabled. With this feature, when the computer is powered on but inactive, the power consumption is reduced in order to save energy. When the computer operates normally, it is in Normal mode. Page 42 Chapter 3 2. Use arrow keys to go to the item you want to configure. The operating system puts devices in and out of low-power states based on user preferences and knowledge of how devices are being used by applications.

Devices that are not being used can be turned off. The operating system uses information from applications and user settings to put the system as a whole into a low-power state.

If no power management event occurs during this time period, meaning that computer is inactive during this period, the system will enter the Doze power saving mode. If this mode is disabled, the system will enter the next mode in the sequence Standby or Suspend mode. Power on by Ring: If you connect an external modem to the onboard serial port, the system will be turned on when a telephone ring-up occurs.

Power on by Alarm: RTC alarm can turn on the system. You can set date of month and time hour , minute , second. Two options are available: Auto or Manual.
