2.3 Running the BIOS Setup Program
Your panel PC is likely to have been properly set up and configured by
your dealer prior to delivery. You may still find it necessary to use the
panel PC's BIOS (Basic Input-Output System) setup program to
change system configuration information, such as the current date and
time or your type of hard drive. The setup program is stored in
read-only memory (ROM). It can be accessed either when you turn on
or reset the panel PC, by pressing the "Del" key on your keyboard
immediately after powering on the computer.
The settings you specify with the setup program are recorded in a
special area of memory called CMOS RAM. This memory is backed up
by a battery so that it will not be erased when you turn off or reset the
system. Whenever you turn on the power, the system reads the
settings stored in CMOS RAM and compares them to the equipment
check conducted during the power on self-test (POST). If an error
occurs, an error message will be displayed on screen, and you will be
prompted to run the setup program.
If you want to change the setup of BIOS, refer to Chapter 9 for more
detailed information.
Chapter 2 System Setup

2.4 Installing System Software
Recent releases of operating systems from major vendors include
setup programs which load automatically and guide you through hard
disk preparation and operating system installation. The guidelines
below will help you determine the steps necessary to install your
operating system on the panel PC hard drive.
Note:
Some distributors and system integrators may have
already pre-installed system software prior to shipment of your panel PC.
If required, insert your operating system's installation or setup diskette
into the diskette drive until the release button pops out. (See Fig. 2-2.)
The BIOS of the panel PC supports system boot-up directly from the
CD-ROM drive. You may also insert your system installation CD-ROM
into the CD-ROM drive. (See Fig. 2-2.) Refer to Chapter 9 if you wish
to change the BIOS settings.
Power on your panel PC or reset the system by pressing the
"Ctrl"+"Alt"+"Del" keys simultaneously. The panel PC will automatically load the operating system from the diskette or CD-ROM.
If you are presented with the opening screen of a setup or installation
program, follow the instructions on screen. The setup program will
guide you through preparation of your hard drive, and installation of
the operating system.
If you are presented with an operating system command prompt, such
as A:\>, then you must partition and format your hard drive, and
manually copy the operating system files to it. Refer to your operating
system user's manual for instructions on partitioning and formatting a
hard drive.

4.1 Jumpers and Connectors
4.1.1 Setting jumpers
You can configure your panel PC to match the needs of your application by setting jumpers. A jumper is the simplest kind of electrical
switch. It consists of two metal pins and a small metal clip (often
protected by a plastic cover) that slides over the pins to connect them.
To “close” a jumper, you connect the pins with the clip. To “open” a
jumper you remove the clip. Sometimes a jumper will have three pins,
labeled 1, 2, and 3. In this case, you would connect either pins 1 and 2
or pins 2 and 3.

Award BIOS Setup
This chapter describes how to set BIOS
configuration data.
9.1 Award BIOS Setup
The PPC-S153 comes with an Award BIOS chip that contains the ROM
setup for your system. This chip serves as an interface between the
processor and the rest of the mainboard's components. This chapter
explains the information contained in the setup program and tells you
how to modify the settings according to your system configuration.
Some setup items will not be explained, because it is recommended that
users do not change such items.
Note:
Values for the various setup items that appear on
your own screen (including default values) may not
be the same as the values shown on the screen
figures in this chapter. This is because the BIOS is
revised and updated from time to time. If in doubt,
check Advantech's website for the latest BIOS
versions and related information.
9.2 CMOS Setup Utility
Figure 9-1: Setup program initial screen
76
PPC-S153 User's Manual
A setup program, built into the system BIOS, is stored in the CMOS
RAM that allows the configuration settings to be changed. This
program is executed when the user changes the system configuration;
when the user changes the system backup battery; or when the
system detects a configuration error and asks the user to run the setup
program. At power-on RAM testing, the message "Press DEL to enter
Setup" appears. After pressing the "DEL" key, the CMOS setup utility
screen will appear as shown in Fig. 9-1. Use the arrow keys to select
and press "Enter" to run the selected program.
9.3 Standard CMOS Setup
Figure 9-2: CMOS setup screen
The standard CMOS setup screen is shown above. System BIOS
automatically detects memory size, so no changes are necessary. It has
a few items requiring setting. Each item may have one or more optional
settings. System BIOS allows you to change the system date and time,
IDE hard disk, floppy disk drive types for drives A: and B:, boot-up
video display mode, and POST error handling selection. Use the arrow
keys to highlight the item and then use the "PgUp" or "PgDn" keys to
select the value you want for each item.

the cabling configuration used to attach them to the controller. Your
system supports two IDE controllers - a primary and a secondary - so
you have the ability to install up to four separate hard disks.
PIO means Programmed Input/Output. Rather than having the BIOS
issue a series of commands to effect a transfer to or from the disk
drive, PIO allows the BIOS to tell the controller what it wants and then
let the controller and the CPU perform the task by themselves.
86
PPC-S153 User's Manual
Your system supports five modes, numbered from 0 through 4, which
differ primarily in timing. When "Auto" is selected, the BIOS will
choose the best available mode.

Programming the
Watchdog Timer
The PPC-S153 is equipped with a watchdog
timer that resets the CPU or generates an
interrupt if processing comes to a standstill
for any reason. This feature ensures system
reliability in industrial standalone or
unmanned environments.
A.1 Programming the Watchdog Timer
To program the watchdog timer, you must write a program which writes
I/O port address 443 (hex). The output data is a time interval value. The
value range is from 01 (hex) to 3E (hex), and the related time interval is
from 1 sec. to 62 sec.
Data

02
2 sec.
03
3 sec.
04
4 sec.
•
•
•
•
•
•
3E
62 sec.
After data entry, your program must refresh the watchdog timer by
rewriting the I/O port 443 (hex) while simultaneously setting it. When
you want to disable the watchdog timer, your program should read I/O
port 443 (hex).

If you want to completely disassemble the panel PC, follow the
step-by-step procedures below. Users should be aware that Advantech Co., Ltd. takes no responsibility whatsoever for any problems or
damage caused by the user disassembly of the panel PC. Make sure
the power cord of the panel PC is unplugged before you start disassembly.
The following procedures do not include the detailed disassembly
procedures for the CPU, HDD, and SDRAM; all of which can be found
in Chapter 3.
1. First, unscrew two long screws located on both sides with a
flathead screwdriver and remove them.

8. Turn the CPU board and LCD bracket over carefully. Detach the
cables of the LCD, inverter and touch screen from the CPU board.
You can remove the CPU board from the LCD bracket.
Figure B-8: Remove the CPU board
Notes: 1. Because of the modular design of the front panel
and touch screen, you do not disassemble the whole
system step by step if you would like to replace the
defective LCD or touch screen. You simply unscrew
the screws marked "A" in step 1. Then you can
easily remove the LCD and touchscreen following
Steps 1 to 5.
Note: 2.
110
The touch screen is stuck on the front bezel by a
strong double sided adhesive tape. We do not
recommend you remove it unless the touch screen is
defective and you need to replace it.
