2. Hardware Setup
In this chapter we will elaborate all the information you need upon installing this motherboard
to your computer system.
※ Always power off the computer and unplug the AC power cord before adding or
removing any peripheral or component. Failing to so may cause severe damage
to your motherboard and/or peripherals. Plug in the AC power cord only after
you have carefully checked everything.
•
This motherboard carries a Micro ATX form factor of 224 x 245 mm. Choose a chassis big
enough to install this motherboard.
•
As some features for this motherboard are implemented by cabling connectors on the
motherboard to indicators and switches or buttons on the chassis, make sure your chassis
supports all the features required.
•
If there is possibility of adopting some more hard drives, make sure your chassis has
sufficient power and space for them.
•
Most chassis have alternatives for I/O shield located at the rear panel. Make sure the I/O
shield of the chassis matches the I/O port configuration of this motherboard. You can find
an I/O shield specifically designed for this motherboard in its package.
2.2 Installing Motherboard
Most computer chassis have a base with
many mounting holes to allow the
motherboard to be securely attached, and at
the same time, protected the system from
short circuits. There are two ways to attach
the motherboard to the chassis base:
1. with studs,
2. or with spacers
In principle, the best way to attach the board
is with studs. Only if you are unable to do
this should you attach the board with spacers.
Line up the holes on the board with the mounting holes on the chassis. If the holes line up and
there are screw holes, you can attach the board with studs. If the holes line up and there are
only slots, you can only attach with spacers. Take the tip of the spacers and insert them into
the slots. After doing this to all the slots, you can slide the board into position aligned with slots.
After the board has been positioned, check to make sure everything is OK before putting the
chassis back on.
SG-95
2-1
Hardware Setup
2.1 Choosing a Computer Chassis
1. Locate all the screw holes on
the motherboard and the
chassis base.
2. Place all the studs or spacers
needed on the chassis base
and have them tightened.
3. Face the motherboard’s I/O
ports toward the chassis’s rear
panel.
4. Line up all the motherboard’s
screw holes with those studs or
spacers on the chassis.
Face the chassis’s rear panel.
To install this motherboard:
5. Install the motherboard with
screws
and
have
them
tightened.
※ To prevent shorting the PCB circuit, please REMOVE the metal studs or spacers if
they are already fastened on the chassis base and are without mounting-holes
on the motherboard to align with.
2.3 Checking Jumper Settings
For a 2-pin jumper, plug the jumper cap on both pins will make it CLOSE (SHORT). Remove the
jumper cap, or plug it on either pin (reserved for future use) will leave it at OPEN position.
SHORT
OPEN
OPEN
For 3-pin jumper, pin 1~2 or pin 2~3 can be shorted by plugging the jumper cap in.
Pin 1~2 SHORT
2-2
Pin 2~3 SHORT
SG-95
2.3.1 CMOS Memory Clearing Header and Backup Battery
The time to clear the CMOS memory occurs when (a) the CMOS data becomes corrupted, (b)
you forgot the supervisor or user password preset in the BIOS menu, (c) you are unable to
boot-up the system because the CPU ratio/clock was incorrectly set in the BIOS menu, or (d)
whenever there is modification on the CPU or memory modules.
This header uses a jumper cap to clear the CMOS memory and have it reconfigured to the
default values stored in BIOS.
Pins 2 and 3 shorted (default): Normal operation.
•
Pins 1 and 2 shorted: Clear CMOS memory.
Hardware Setup
•
To clear the CMOS memory and load in the default values:
1. Power off the system and disconnect with AC power source.
2. Set pin 1 and pin 2 shorted by the jumper cap. Wait for a few seconds. Set the jumper cap
back to its default settings --- pin 2 and pin 3 shorted.
3. Power on the system.
4. For incorrect CPU ratio/clock settings in the BIOS, press <Del> key to enter the BIOS setup
menu right after powering on system.
5. Set the CPU operating speed back to its default or an appropriate value.
6. Save and exit the BIOS setup menu.
SG-95
2-3
CMOS Backup Battery:
An onboard battery saves the CMOS memory to keep the BIOS information stays on even after
disconnected your system with power source. Nevertheless, this backup battery exhausts after
some five years. Once the error message like “CMOS BATTERY HAS FAILED” or “CMOS
checksum error” displays on monitor, this backup battery is no longer functional and has to
be renewed.
To renew the backup battery:
1. Power off the system and disconnect with AC power source.
2. Remove the exhausted battery.
3. Insert a new CR2032 or equivalent battery. Pay attention to its polarity. The “+” side is its
positive polarity.
4. Connect AC power source and power on the system.
5. Enter the BIOS setup menu. Reconfigure the setup parameters if necessary.
CAUTION:
※ Danger of explosion may arise if the battery is incorrectly renewed.
※ Renew only with the same or equivalent type recommended by the battery
manufacturer.
※ Dispose of used batteries according to the battery manufacturer’s instructions.

5.1 Troubleshooting (How to Get Technical Support?)
5.1.1 Q & A
Q: Do I need to clear the CMOS before I use a new motherboard to assemble my
new computer system?
A: Yes, we highly recommend that you clear the CMOS before installing a new motherboard.
Please move the CMOS jumper from its default 2-3 position to 1-2 for a few seconds, and
then back. When you boot up your system for the first time, follow the instructions in the
user's manual to load the optimized defaults.
Q: If my system hangs when I update the BIOS or set the wrong CPU parameters,
what should I do?
A: Whenever you update the BIOS or if the system hangs due to wrong CPU parameters
setting, always clear CMOS jumper before booting up again.
Q: Why does the system fail to boot up again right after a mechanical power-off?
A: Please keep a 30-second interval between each mechanical power On/Off.
Q: Why does the system fail to boot up and nothing displays on the screen after I
did some over-clocking or non-standard settings inside the BIOS?
A: It should not cause hardware or permanent damage to motherboard when BIOS settings
were changed from default to over-clocking or non-standard status.
We suggest the following three troubleshooting methods to discharge CMOS data, recover
the hardware default status, and then making the motherboard work again. There is no
need to bother returning the motherboard to where you bought it from or go through an
RMA process.
Step 1.Switch off the power supply unit and then switch it on again after one minute. If
there is no power-switch on the power supply unit, disconnect its power cord for
one minute and then reconnect.
Press and hold the <Insert> key on the keyboard, and press the power-on button
to boot up system. If it works, release the <Insert> key and hit <Del> key to enter
the BIOS setup page to apply the correct settings.
If the situation remains the same, repeat the procedures in Step 1 for three times,
or try Step 2.
Step 2.Switch off the power supply unit or disconnect the power cord. Open the chassis
cover. Locate the CCMOS jumper near the button battery. Change the jumper
position from default 2-3 to 1-2 for one minute to discharge the CMOS data, and
then put it back to default 2-3 position.
If the situation remains the same, try Step 3.
SG-95
5-1
Appendix
Close the chassis and switch on the power supply unit or plug in the power cord.
Press the power-on button to boot up system. If it works, hit <Del> key to enter
the BIOS setup page to do the correct settings.
Step 3.The same procedure as Step 2, but while discharging the CMOS data, pull out the
ATX power connectors from motherboard and remove the button battery during
CMOS discharge.
Q: How to get a quick response for my request on technical support?
A: Please carry out a simple troubleshooting before sending “Technical Support Form”:
System boot-up fails after the system had been assembled:
Check the motherboard’s supporting specifications first to see if all the key components
attached in your system can meet.
To do so, you may:
Remove all the unnecessary add-on devices (except the CPU, VGA card, DRAM, and
Power Supply), and then reboot.
If the trouble still exists, try another VGA card of different brand/model to see if the
system will start.
If the trouble still exists, try another memory module of different brand/model.
If the trouble still exists, try another CPU and Power Supply.
If the system runs successfully, shut it down and start re-installing the interface cards and
devices that were previously installed in the system. Re-install and start the system one at a
time until the system won’t start.
Malfunction in the OS:
If the system hangs after resuming from S3 or some testing program, if the CPU cannot be
recognized properly, if the display resolution mixed, or if a certain program cannot be
executed, etc, you may:
Upgrade the motherboard’s latest BIOS version.
Upgrade the add-on device’s latest driver version.
Check if there is any conflict in the “Control Panel/System Properties”.
