use a grounding wrist strap at all times. Place
all electronic components on a static-dissipative
surface or in a static-shielded bag when they
are not in the chassis.
Caution!
The computer is provided with a battery-powered Real-time Clock circuit. There is a danger
of explosion if battery is incorrectly replaced.
Replace only with same or equivalent type recommended by the manufacturer. Discard used
batteries according to manufacturer's instructions.

You can configure your motherboard to match the needs of your application by setting the jumpers. A jumper is a metal bridge that closes an electrical circuit. 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” (or turn ON) a jumper, you connect the pins with the clip. To
“open” (or turn OFF) a jumper, you remove the clip. Sometimes a jumper
consists of a set of three pins, labeled 1, 2, and 3. In this case you connect
either pins 1 and 2, or 2 and 3. A pair of needle-nose pliers may be useful
when setting jumpers.
1.8.2 CMOS clear (J3)
The DVMB-554E motherboard contains a jumper that can erase CMOS
data and reset the system BIOS information. Normally this jumper should
be set with pins 1-2 closed. If you want to reset the CMOS data, set J1 to
2-3 closed for just a few seconds, and then move the jumper back to 1-2
closed. This procedure will reset the CMOS to its default setting.

1.8.3 Watchdog timer output (J4)
The DVMB-554E contains a watchdog timer that will reset the CPU or
send a signal to PIRQE in the event the CPU stops processing. This
feature means the DVMB-554E will recover from a software failure or an
EMI problem. The J4 jumper settings control the outcome of what the
computer will do in the event the watchdog timer is tripped.

1.9 System Memory
The DVMB-554E has two sockets for 240-pin memory modules (SODIMMs). All these sockets use 1.8 V unbuffered double data rate
synchronous DRAMs (DDR SDRAM). They are available in capacities
of 256, 512 and 1024 MB. The sockets can be filled in any combination
with DIMMs of any size, giving a total memory size between 256 MB
and 2GB.
1.9.1 CPU FSB and memory speed
The DVMB-554E can accept DDR2 SDRAM memory chips without
parity. Also note: The DVMB-554E accepts DDR2 400/533/667MHz
SDRAM, and DDR2 SDRAM. The DVMB-554E does NOT support
ECC (error checking and correction).
1.10 Memory Installation Procedures
To install DIMMs, first make sure the two handles of the DIMM socket
are in the “open” position. i.e. The handles lean outward. Slowly slide the
DIMM module along the plastic guides on both ends of the socket. Then
press the DIMM module right down into the socket, until you hear a click.
This is when the two handles have automatically locked the mem- ory
module into the correct position of the DIMM socket. To remove the
memory module, just push both handles outward, and the memory module will be ejected by the mechanism in the socket.

Chapter 2 Connecting Peripherals
2.1 Introduction
You can access most of the connectors from the top of the board as it is
being installed in the chassis. If you have a number of cards installed or
have a packed chassis, you may need to partially remove the card to make
all the connections.
2.2 Primary IDE Connector (CN11)
You can attach up to two IDE (Integrated Drive Electronics) drives to the
DVMB-554E’s built-in controller. The primary (CN11) connector can
each accommodate two drives.
Wire number 1 on the cable is red or blue and the other wires are gray.
Connect one end to connector CN11 on the motherboard. Make sure that
the red/blue wire corresponds to pin 1 on the connector (in the upper right
hand corner). See Chapter 1 for help finding the connector.
Unlike floppy drives, IDE hard drives can connect in either position on
the cable. If you install two drives to a single connector, you will need to
set one as the master and the other as the slave. You do this by setting the
jumpers on the drives. If you use just one drive on the connector, you
should set the drive as the master. See the documentation that came with
your drive for more information.
Connect the first hard drive to the other end of the cable. Wire 1 on the
28
cable should also connect to pin 1 on the hard drive connector, which is
labeled on the drive circuit board. Check the documentation that came
with the drive for more information.

Chapter 3 Award BIOS Setup
3.1 Introduction
Award’s BIOS ROM has a built-in setup program that allows users to
modify the basic system configuration. This type of information is stored
in battery backed-up memory (CMOS RAM) so that it retains the setup
information when the power is turned off.
3.1.1 CMOS RAM Auto-backup and Restore
The CMOS RAM is powered by an onboard button cell battery. When
you finish BIOS setup, the data in CMOS RAM will be automatically
backed up to Flash ROM. If operation in harsh industrial environments
causes a soft error, BIOS will recheck the data in CMOS RAM and automatically restore the original data in Flash ROM to CMOS RAM for
booting.
Note:
If you intend to change the CMOS setting without restoring the previous backup, you have to
click on “DEL” within two seconds of the
“CMOS checksum error...” display screen message appearing. Then enter the “Setup” screen
to modify the data. If the “CMOS checksum
error...” message appears again and again,
please check to see if you need to replace the
battery in your system.
