Dual Channel
VT x800 series support the Dual Channel Technology. After operating the dual channel
technology, the bandwidth of memory bus will add double up to 4GB/s.
The mainboard inculdes 4 DIMM slots, and each channel has two DIMM sockets as following:
T
Channel A : DDR1, DDR3
T
Channel B : DDR2 , DDR4
If you want to operate the Dual Channel Technology, please note the following explanations due to
the limitation of Intel chipset specifications.
Memory Number
Description
1
Only one DDR memory module is
installed ?
The Dual Channel Technology can’t operate when only one DDR
memory module is installed.
2
Two DDR memory modules are
installed ( the same memory size and
type) ?
The Dual Channel Technology will operate when two memory
modules are inserted individually into Channel A and B. If you
install two memory modules in the same channel, the Dual
Channel Technology will not operate.
3
Three DDR memory modules are
installed ?
Pleae note that the Dual Channel Technology will not operate
when three DDR memory modules are installed; part of them will
not be detected.
4
Four DDR memory modules are
installed ?
If you install four memory modules at the same time, the Dual
Channel Technology will operate only when those modules have
the same size and type.
NOTE: We strongly recommend user to slot two DDR memory modules into the DIMMs with the same color in
order for Dual Channel Technology to work.

System Utilities
BIOS (Basic Input and Output System) includes a CMOS SETUP utility which allows user to
configure required setting or to active certain system features.
The CMOS SETUP saves the configuration in the CMOS SRAM of the mainboard. When the power is turned
off, the battery on the mainboard supplies the necessary power to the CMOS SRAM.
When the power is turned on, pushing the <Del> button during the BIOS POST (Power-On Self Test) will take
you to the CMOS SETUP screen. You can enter the BIOS setup screen by pressing “Ctrl+F1”. When setting
up BIOS for the first time, it is recommended that you save the current BIOS to a disk in the event that BIOS
needs to be reset to its original settings.
Q-Flash allows the user to quickly and easily update or backup BIOS without entering the operating system.
BIOS is a Window s-based utility that doesn’t required users to boot to DOS before upgrading BIOS but
directly download and update BIOS from the Internet.

graphics card is installed.
When set to PEG Port, the motherboard boots up using the
PCI Express graphics card, if one is installed. Otherwise, it
defaults to the onboard graphics processor.
When set to Auto, the BIOS checks to see if a PCI Express
graphics card is installed. If it detects that a PCI Express
graphics card is present, the motherboard boots up using
that card. Otherwise, it defaults to the onboard graphics

DVMT)
DVMT Mode
Combo Mode
When set to DVMT Mode, the graphics chip will
dynamically allocate system memory as graphics memory,
according to system and graphics requirements. The
system memory is allocated as graphics memory when
graphics-intensive applications are running but when the
need for graphics memory drops, the allocated graphics
memory can be released to the operating system for other
uses.
When set to Combo Mode , the graphics driver will allocate
a fixed amount of memory as dedicated graphics memory,
as well as allow more system memory to be dynamically
allocated between the graphics processor and the
operating system.
It is recommended that you set this BIOS feature to DVMT
Mode for maximum performance. Setting it to DVMT Mode
ensures that system memory is dynamically allocated for
optimal balance between graphics and system
performance.
DVMT/FIXED Memory Size
It allows you to set the maximum amount of system
memory that can be allocated as graphics memory, but only
for the Fixed or DVMT operating modes. When the DVMT +
Fixed mode is selected, this BIOS feature is grayed out
because when in that operating mode, the graphics driver
automatically allocates a total of 128MB of graphics
memory.
64MB
128MB
When set to 64MB, up to 64MB of system memory can be
used as graphics memory.
When set to 128MB, up to 128MB of system memory can
be used as graphics memory.

IDE HDD Block Mode
Selecting Enabled speeds up processing of drive reads and writes, but may cause
instability in IDE subsystems that cannot support such fast performance. If you are
getting disk drive errors, try setting this value to Disabled.
IDE DMA transfer access
This BIOS feature allows you to enable or disable DMA (Direct Memory Access)
support for all IDE devices.
If you disable this BIOS feature, the BIOS will disable DMA transfers for all IDE drives.
They will revert to PIO mode transfers.
If you enable this BIOS feature, the BIOS will enable DMA transfers for all IDE drives.
The proper DMA mode will be detected at boot-up. If the drive does not support DMA
transfers, then it will use PIO mode instead.
IDE Primary transfer access
This BIOS feature allows you to enable or disable primary support for all IDE devices.
IDE Primary/Secondary Master/Slave
PIO
The four IDE PIO (Programmed Input/Output)
fields let you set a PIO mode (0-4) for each of the
four IDE devices that the onboard IDE interface
supports. Modes 0 through 4 provide

When set to IDE, the SATA controller disables its
RAID and AHCI functions when the computer
boots up.
If you intend to create or use a RAID array, you
should set this BIOS feature to RAID. The BIOS
will load the RAID setup utility which you can
access at boot time.
If you do not wish to create or use a RAID array
but would like to make use of the SATA
controller's AHCI features, you should set this
BIOS feature to SATA or AHCI. This skips the
loading of the SATA controller's RAID functions
at boot time, which speeds up the boot process.

Power-On Self-Test (POST)
Each time you turn on the system, the Power-on Self Test (POST) is initiated. Several items are tested during
POST, but is for the most part transparent to the user.
The Power-On Self Test (POST) is a BIOS procedure that boots the system, initializes and diagnoses the
system components, and controls the operation of the power-on password option. If POST discovers errors in
system operations at power-on, it displays error messages on screen, generates a check point code at port
80h or even halts the system if the error is fatal.
The main components on the main board that must be diagnosed and/or initialized by POST to ensure system

NOTE: When Post executes a task, it uses a series of preset numbers called check points to be latched at
port 80h, indicating the stages it is currently running. This latch can be read and shown on a debug board.
The following table describes the BIOS common tasks carried out by POST. Each task is denoted by an
unique check point number. For other unique check point numbers that are not listed in the table, refer to the
corresponding product service guide.

POST Error Messages List
If you cannot run the diagnostics program tests but did receive a POST error message, use “POST Error
Messages List” to diagnose system problems. If you did not receive any error message, look for a description
of your error symptoms in “Error Symptoms List” on page 96.
NOTE: When you have deemed it necessary to replace an FRU, and have done so, you must run a total
system check to ensure that no other activity has been affected by the change. This system check can
be done through the diagnostics program.
NOTE: Check all power supply voltages, switch, and jumper settings before you replace the main board. Also
check the power supply voltages if you have a “system no-power” condition.
If you are unable to correct the problem by using the “BIOS Messages List” table and “Error Symptoms List”
table, go to “Undetermined Problems”.
To diagnose a problem, first find the BIOS error messages in the left column. If directed to a check procedure,
replace the FRU indicated in the check procedure. If no check procedure is indicated, the first Action/FRU
listed in right column is the most likely cause.
BIOS Messages
94
Action/FRU
BIOS ROM checksum error - System halted
The checksum of the BIOS code in the BIOS chip is
incorrect, indicating the BIOS code may have
become corrupt. Contact your system dealer to
replace the BIOS.
CMOS Battery Failed
The CMOS battery is no longer functional. Contact
your system dealer for a replacement the BIOS.
CMOS Checksum Error- defaults loaded
Checksum of CMOS is incorrect, so the system
loads the default equipment configuration. A
checksum error may indicate that CMOS has
become corrupt. A weak battery may have caused
this error. Check the battery and replace if
necessary.
CPU at nnnn
Displays the running speed of CPU.
Display switch is set incorrectly
The display switch on the motherboard can be set to
either monochrome or color. This message indicates
the switch is set to a different setting than indicated
in Setup. Determine which setting is correct, and
then either turn off the system and change the
jumper, or enter Setup and change the Video
selection.
Press ESC to skip memory test
The user may press Esc to skip the full memory test.
Floppy disk(s) fail
Cannot find or initialize the floppy drive controller or
the drive. Make sure the controller is installed
correctly, if no floppy drives are installed, be sure the
Diskette Drive selection in Setup is set to NONE or
AUTO.
HARD DISK initializing - Please wait a moment
Some hard drives require extra time to initialize.
HARD DISK INSTALL FAILURE
Cannot find or initialize the hard drive controller or
the drive. Make sure the controller is installed
correctly. If no hard drives are installed, be sure the
Hard Drive Selection in Setup is set to NONE.
Hard disk(s) diagnosis fail
The system may run specific disk diagnostic
routines. This message appears if one or more hard
disks return an error when the diagnostics run.
Chapter 4
BIOS Messages
Action/FRU
Keyboard Error Or No Keyboard Present
Cannot initialize the keyboard. Make sure the
keyboard is attached correctly and no keys are
pressed during POST. To purposely configure the
system without a keyboard, set the error halt
condition in Setup to HALT ON ALL, BUT
KEYBOARD. The BIOS then ignores the missing
keyboard during POST.
Keyboard is locked out - Unlock the key
This message usually indicates that one or more
keys have been pressed during the keyboard tests.
Be sure no objects are resting on the keyboard.
Memory Test:
This message displays during a full memory test,
counting down the memory areas being tested.
Memory test fail
If POST detects an error during memory testing,
additional information appears giving specifics about
the type and location of the memory error.
Override enabled - Defaults loaded
If the system cannot boot using the current CMOS
configuration, the BIOS can override the current
configuration with a set of BIOS defaults designed
for the most stable, minimal-performance system
operations.
Press TAB to show POST screen
System OEMs may replace the Phoenix
Technologies Award BIOS POST display with their
own proprietary display. Including this message in
the OEM display permits the operator to switch
between the OEM display and the default POST
display.
Primary master hard disk fail
POST detects an error in the primary master IDE
hard drive.
Primary slave hard disk fail
POST detects an error in the secondary master IDE
hard drive.
Secondary master hard disk fail
POST detects an error in the primary slave IDE hard
drive.
