M-systems Flash Disk
96M4011o reserves one 32-pin DIP sockets for installing M-systems Flash disk
from 2MB to 288MB. This operation structure is running with pure ISA-bus without
PnP (Plug and Play) function. Before installing, make sure that I/O address jumper
setting is set on right position to prevent unworkable system due to I/O resource
conflict. Do remember to follow DOC (DiskOnChip) installation procedure.
Otherwise, it is possible to burn out the Flash chip due to incorrect installation.
Installing DOC
Align the DOC with pinholes on the socket. Make sure that the notched corner or dot
mark (pin 1) of DOC corresponds to notched corner of the socket. Then press the
DOC gently until it fits into place. If installation procedure is correct, the Flash disk
can be viewed as a normal hard disk to access read/write data.
WARNING
Please ensure that your DOC is properly inserted. Placing the DOC in reverse will
cause severe damage. Remember, a new DOC chip is always a formatted disk. You
may simply plug the chip on the DOC socket and read/write through it. If you
would like to boot from this Flash disk, it is necessary to refer to the application note
from M-systems. You can easily get relative information from M-systems shipping

Clear CMOS contents
To correctly operate CMOS Clear function, users must turn off the system, move JP1
jumper to short pin 2 and 3. To clear CMOS contents, please turn the power back on
and turn it off again for AT system, or press the toggle switch a few times for ATX
system. Move the JP1 back to 1-2 position (Normal Operation) and start the system.
System will then produce a “CMOS Check Sum Error” message and hold up. Users
may then follow the displayed message to load BIOS default setting.
3.6
WDT Function
The working algorithm of the WDT function can be simply described as a counting
process. The Time-Out Interval can be set through software programming. The
availability of the time-out interval settings by software or hardware varies from
boards to boards.
96M4011o allows users control WDT through dynamic software
programming. The WDT starts counting when it is activated. It sends out a signal to
system reset or to non-maskable interrupt (NMI), when time-out interval ends. To
prevent the time-out interval from running out, a re-trigger signal will need to be
sent before the counting reaches its end. This action will restart the counting process.
A well-written WDT program should keep the counting process running under
normal condition. WDT should never generate a system reset or NMI signal unless
the system runs into troubles.
The related Control Registers of WDT are all included in the following sample
program that is written in C language. User can fill a non-zero value into the Timeout Value Register to enable/refresh WDT. System will be reset after the Time-out
Value to be counted down to zero. Or user can directly fill a zero value into Time-out
Value Register to disable WDT immediately. To ensure a successful accessing to the
content of desired Control Register, the sequence of following program codes should
be step-by-step run again when each register is accessed.
Additionally, there are maximum 2 seconds of counting tolerance that should be
considered into user’ application program. For more information about WDT, please
refer to Winbond W83627HF data sheet.
96M4011o User’s Manual

Advanced Chipset Feature
This section allows you to configure the system based on the specific features of the
Intel 82845GV chipset. This chipset manages bus speeds and access to system
memory resources, such as DRAM (DDR SDRAM) and the external cache. It also
coordinates communications between the conventional ISA bus and the PCI bus. It
must be stated that these items should never need to be altered. The default
settings have been chosen because they provide the best operating conditions for
your system. The only time you might consider making any changes would be if
you discovered that data was being lost while using your system.

This chipset settings deal with CPU access to dynamic random access memory
(DRAM). The default timings have been carefully chosen and should only be altered
if data is being lost. Such a scenario might well occur if your system had mixed
speed DRAM chips installed so that greater delays may be required to preserve the
integrity of the data held in the slower memory chips.

You can set either supervisor or user password, or both of then.
between are:
The differences
Set Supervisor Password : can enter and change the options of the setup menus.
Set User Password : just can only enter but do not have the right to change the
options of the setup menus. When you select this function, the following message
will appear at the center of the screen to assist you in creating a password.
ENTER PASSWORD
Type the password, up to eight characters in length, and press <Enter>. The
password typed now will clear any previously entered password from CMOS
memory. You will be asked to confirm the password. Type the password again
and press <Enter>. You may also press <Esc> to abort the selection and not enter a
password.
To disable a password, just press <Enter> when you are prompted to enter the
password. A message will confirm the password will be disabled. Once the
password is disabled, the system will boot and you can enter Setup freely.
PASSWORD DISABLED
When a password has been enabled, you will be prompted to enter it every time you
try to enter Setup. This prevents an unauthorized person from changing any part
of your system configuration.
Additionally, when a password is enabled, you can also require the BIOS to request
a password every time your system is rebooted. This would prevent unauthorized
use of your computer.
You determine when the password is required within the BIOS Features Setup Menu
and its Security option (see Section 3). If the Security option is set to “System”, the
password will be required both at boot and at entry to Setup. If set to “Setup”,
prompting only occurs when trying to enter Setup.

Troubleshooting
This chapter provides you a few useful tips to quickly get your 96M4011o
running with no failure. As basic hardware installation has been addressed in
Chapter 3, this chapter will basically focus on system integration issues, in terms of
backplane setup, BIOS setting, and OS diagnostics.
5.1
Backplane Setup
Backplane
96M4011o is a full-sized SBC, and therefore is only able to run on PICMG
PCI/ISA Backplane.
P4 Power connector
96M4011o requires power drawing from at least two connectors. The CPU
supplementary power connector (J26) should be connected at all time for this P4
system to run properly. At its standalone mode, the single board computer will
connect no peripheral device cards. 4-pin connector for CPU (J26) and the 4pin
connector (J31) must be connected. If the system’s main power comes from a
backplane, the CPU supplementary power connector (J26) should still be connected.
ATX power
96M4011o is designed to also support ATX mode. Please refer to the following
instruction to apply ATX power on your 96M4011o and backplane.
Step1: Remove the jumper on pin3 and pin4 of ATX P/S CONTROL CONNECTOR
(4-pin) connector (see the Figure below).
96M4011o User’s Manual
5-1
Troubleshooting
Step2: Connect 20-pin power cable of the ATX POWER with ATX POWER
CONNECTOR (20-pin) on the backplane.
Step3: Use a 4-pin power cable to connect the ATX P/S CONTROL CONNECTOR
(4-pin) connector on the backplane.
Step4: Please find the J29 4-pin ATX Power Control Connector on the right part of
96M4011o in white color. You will also see a mark with “J29” on the
lower side of J29 header. Connect the 4-pin ATX power control cable with this
J29 header.
96M4011o User’s Manual
5-2
Troubleshooting
Step5: Please adjust the AT/ATX jumper on JP3 to short 3-5,4-6 pins, then it can
support ATX power scheme.
Step6: Connect TOGGLE SWITCH with J32 connector on 96M4011o.
Step7: The figure below is the TOGGLE SWITCH, which is used to switch the ATX
Power on/off for SBC. Usually the TOGGLE SWITCH is located on the
chassis front panel. Pressing the switch button once will turn power on, and
press again to turn it off.
Q: In addition to the above description, is there anything to do to finish up an
ATX system?
A: Yes. 96M4011o needs to be configured to support ATX function for the
above cabling. Please move jumper JP3 to 3-5 short and 4-6 short (support ATX
function).
96M4011o User’s Manual
5-3
Troubleshooting
Q: How can I build up an AT system using ATX power supply
A: Do not forget to move JP3 of 96M4011o back to 1-3 short and 2-4 short
(support AT function).
If the ATX power supply has a switch, such as ORION-300ATX, do not remove
the jumper of backplane connector in step 1, and use the power supply switch as
the system power on switch.
In all cases, users may apply a 2-pin AT (on/off) switch over pin-3 and pin-4 of
the backplane connector in step 1. However, power supply switch needs to be
moved to “on”, if there is one.
5.2
Onboard Hardware Installation
Q: How do I connect my keyboard and mouse ?
A: Users may always adopt PS/2 keyboard and mouse over the PS/2 interface
(through Y-cable), J13 on 96M4011o.
However, it is also fine to adopt a standard keyboard over the standard
keyboard connector on backplane, if provided. In this way, users need to adopt a
5-pin keyboard connection cable to line-up, external keyboard interface, J14 on
96M4011o with the 5-pin keyboard connector on backplane.
Q: OK. I have finished up hardware installation, but I got nothing when I power
on the system. Why?
A: There are thousands of different reasons to get this power on failure.
1. Check 96M4011o jumper, JP3. For AT power supply or ATX power
supply used for AT system, JP3 needs to be at 1-3 and 2-4. Otherwise, it needs
to be at 3-5 and 4-6. Incorrect power setting will not allow you to power on the
system.
2. Double check if every connector is attached with the correct cable.
3. If you have changed processor with different system clock, please move JP1
(CMOS clear Jumper) to 2-3, power on the system to clear CMOS (move
on/off switch from off to on for AT mode, or toggle the switch for ATX
mode), power off the system, move JP1 back to 1-2, and power on again.
96M4011o User’s Manual
5-4
Troubleshooting
Q: I power on the system, but the CPU speed is not correct. Why?
A: This applies to Engineering Sample processor ONLY. If you have ever loaded
the BIOS optimal default, thank you for doing so. However, this will force the
BIOS to pick up the default CPU core/bus ratio as well. It needs to be
emphasized again that 96M4011o does not have switch or jumper to
configure CPU core/bus ratio. This is done through BIOS automatically. Please
check in the “Frequency/Voltage Control” section of Chapter 4 (4-11) to adjust
this core/bus ratio (only available when you plug in the engineering sample
processor from Intel). System default setting is automatically setting when you
plug in commercial processors from Intel and you will not see the CPU Clock
Ratio item in the BIOS setting screen.
Q: I connect two IDE devices over one IDE flat cable, but the system either does
not start, or just hangs from time to time. Why ?
A: Make sure that you have configured the two IDE devices as a master and a slave,
respectively.
Q: I am using an ATA-66 (or 100) hard drive, how can I know that ATA-66
function is started??
A: You need to use the 80-pin ATA-66 IDE flat cable to have this function ready.
During POST, you can see ATA-66 (or 100) message while hard drive is being
detected. Besides, after Microsoft series OS installation successfully, you must
install ATA-66/100 driver, then the function can be active.

Troubleshooting
5.3
BIOS Setting
It is assumed that users have correctly adopted modules and connected all the
device cables required before turning on AT power. CPU, CPU fan, CPU fan power
cable, 184-pin DDR SDRAM, keyboard, mouse, floppy drive, IDE hard disk, printer,
VGA connector, device power cables, ATX accessories or 12V 4-pin power cable are
good examples that deserve attention. With no assurance of properly and correctly
accommodating these modules and devices, it is very possible to encounter system
failures that result in malfunction of any device.
To make sure that you have a successful start with 96M4011o, it is
recommended, when going with the boot-up sequence, to hit “DEL” key and enter
the BIOS setup menu to tune up a stable BIOS configuration so that you can wake up
your system far well.
Loading the default optimal setting
When prompted with the main setup menu, please scroll down to “Load Optimal
Defaults”, press “Enter” and “Y” to load in default optimal BIOS setup. This will
force your BIOS setting back to the initial factory configuration. It is recommended
to do this so you can be sure the system is running with the BIOS setting that
DSM has highly endorsed. As a matter of fact, users can load the default BIOS
setting any time when system appears to be unstable in boot up sequence.
Auto Detect Hard Disks
In the BIOS => Standard CMOS setup menu, pick up any one from
Primary/Secondary Master/Slave IDE ports, and press “Enter”. Setup the selected
IDE port and its access mode to “Auto”. This will force system to automatically pick
up the IDE devices that are being connected each time system boots up.
Improper disable operation
There are too many occasions where users disable a certain device/feature in one
application through BIOS setting. These variables may not be set back to the original
values when needed. These devices/features will certainly fail to be detected.
When the above conditions happen, it is strongly recommended to check the BIOS
settings. Make sure certain items are set as they should be. These include the floppy
drive, COM1/COM2 ports, parallel port, USB ports, external cache, on-board VGA
and Ethernet.
It is also very common that users would like to disable a certain device/port to
release IRQ resource. A few good examples are
disable COM1 serial port to release IRQ #4
disable COM2 serial port to release IRQ #3
disable parallel port to release IRQ #7

Troubleshooting
For Windows-NT 4.0 users, it is always not recommended to change your hardware
configuration after your first installation. However, if such a change is needed,
please note that sometimes Windows-NT 4.0 will stop loading and prompt you with
a whole page of error messages. Please note that reinstallation of this NT hard disk is
inevitable. You have to backup your data stored in this hard disk because it is almost
impossible to switch back this system unless booting up with another hard disk. If
this NT hard disk is installed with FAT16 disk format, please boot up your system
with any Windows OS. You will be able to see this NT hard disk and retrieve any
data you are interested in. However, if this NT hard disk is installed with NTFS disk
format, there is only OS on an NTFS partition that will allow you to retrieve this NT
hard disk again.
Display setup
By default, any Windows OS starts with 640 x 480 with 16 colors display. The
display driver provided in 96M4011o product CDROM can be installed into
operating system to maximize the VGA performance. If you are using a monitor that
Microsoft® Windows cannot identify, you will also need to set in the display from
the setup menu, a system monitor to correctly retrieve display output. For WindowsNT 4.0 users, 96M4011o provides AGP on-board display feature, Service Pack
3.0 or above is required to activate this display feature.
Network setup
Windows-95/98 users.
1. Please apply a PCI network card over PCI slot, or simply use the on-board Fast
Ethernet device.
2. Start Windows-95/98 and let Window-95/98 automatically detect your network
adapter.
3. Provide the driver and complete installation.
4. Restart your windows system is required.
5. After you come back to windows, please go to Control Panel -> System -> Device
Manager and see if your network adapter has been properly installed. A warning
sign will be prompted if the network adaptor is not properly installed.
6. Please remove this network device from system setup menu and restart windows
to re-detect your network adapter again.
7. After you are sure that hardware installation is completed, please go to Control
Panel -> Network to set up your networking configuration. This includes DNS,
IP, and Gateway. Appropriate protocols are required to carry your networking
activities. Please refer to your system administrator for additional assistance.
96M4011o User’s Manual
5-8
Troubleshooting
Windows-NT 4.0 users.
1. Please install your network adapter manually in Control Panel -> Network ->
Adapter. Drivers are required at this stage.
2. Proceed “Binding” after you load in the driver.
3. Change to Protocol label and load in the protocols that you are interested
(generally, TCP/IP). Configuring IP, gateway and DNS is required for TCP/IP
protocol.
4. Proceed again “Binding” after you complete the protocol loading.
5. Restart your system.
6. There is also situation that the installed network adapter is not working anymore
for you, or old network driver stays in the system after you change your network
card. Please remove all the network adapters and protocols from network setup
menu and redo the loading of driver and protocols again.
7. Network setup within Windows-NT 4.0 is not as easy as within Windows-95/98.
Special familiarity and care are required for a successful installation.
