Chapter 3- BIOS Setup
CHAPTER 3 – BIOS SETUP
Phoenix Award‘s ROM BIOS provides a built-in Setup program that allows users to modify the basic system
configuration and settings. The modified data will be stored in a battery-backed CMOS RAM so that this
data will be retained even when the power is turned off. In general, the information saved in the CMOS
RAM remains unchanged unless there is a configuration change in the system, such as hard drive
replacement or new equipment installment.
Running Phoenix AWARD BIOS
The Setup Utility is stored in the BIOS ROM. When the power of the computer system is turned on, a
screen message will appear to give you an opportunity to call up the Setup Utility while the BIOS will enter
the Power On Self Test (POST) routines. The POST routines perform various diagnostic checks while
initializing the board hardware. If the routines encounter an error during the tests, the error will be reported
in one of two ways, a series of short beeps or an error message on the screen. There are two kinds of
errors, fatal and non-fatal. The system can usually continue the boot up sequence with non-fatal errors.
Non-fatal error messages usually appear on the screen along with the following instructions:
Press <F1> to RESUME
Write down the message and press the F1 key to continue the boot up sequence. After the POST routines
are completed, the following message appears:
Press DEL to enter SETUP
Entering Setup
Turn on the power of the computer system and press <Del> immediately. If you don’t have the chance to
respond, reset the system by simultaneously pressing the <Ctrl>, <Alt> and <Delete> keys, or by pushing
the Reset button on the system cabinet. You can also restart by turning the system OFF then ON.

Fast R-W Turn Around: This setting activates or deactivates a timing rapid of the cycles of letturascrittura. If memories of low quality are used or a system bus specifies outside deactivating this mode,
not to have problems of instability of the system is advisable. Activating it with memories to high
performance is possible. It is not possible to pretend resulted convincing from desks of memory of low
quality.
System BIOS Cacheable: Selecting Enabled allows caching of the system BIOS ROM at F0000h FFFFFh, resulting in better system performance. However, if any program writes to this memory area, a
system error may result. The settings are Enabled and Disabled.
Video RAM Cacheable: The choices: Enabled (Default) and Disabled.
Frame Butter Size: The choices: 2M, 4M, and 8M(Default).
AGP Aperture Size: Select the size of the Accelerated Graphics Port (AGP) aperture. The aperture is a
portion of the PCI memory address range dedicated for graphics memory address space. Host cycles
that hit the aperture range are forwarded to the AGP without any translation. The choices: 128M, 64M,
32M, 16M, 8M, and 4M.
CPU to PCI Write Buffer: When this field is Enabled, writes from the CPU to the PCI bus is buffered, to
compensate for the differences between the CPU and the PCI bus. When disabled, the writes are not
buffered and the CPU must wait until the write is complete before starting another cycle. The default
setting is Enabled.
PCI Dynamic Bursting: This item allows you to enable or disable the PCI dynamic bursting function. The
settings are Enabled or Disabled.
PCI Master 0 WS Write: When enabled, writes to the PCI bus and are executed with zero wait states.
The settings are Enabled or Disabled.
PCI Delay Transaction: The chipset has an embedded 32-bit posted write buffer to support delay
transactions cycles. Select Enabled to support compliance with PCI specification version 2.1. The
settings are Enabled or Disabled.
PCI#2 Access #1 Retry: When disabled, PCI#2 will not be disconnected until access finishes. When
enabled, PCI#2 will be disconnected if max retries are attempted without success. The default setting is
Enabled.
AGP Master 1 WS Write: Implements a single delay when writing from the AGP Bus. Normally, two wait
states are used, allowing for greater stability, but check with your motherboard manufacturer to see if
they have already implemented a Master latency of zero, in which case the lowest writing here of 1 will
reduce performance.
AGP Master 1 WS Read: Implements a single delay when reading from the AGP Bus. Normally, two wait
states are used, allowing for greater stability, but check with your motherboard manufacturer to see if
they have already implemented a Master latency of zero, in which case the lowest reading here of 1 will
reduce performance.

Appendix A – Watchdog Timer
APPENDIX A – WATCHDOG TIMER
You can enable the watchdog when your application software monitors an unexpected or not respond, then
the timer generates a reset to reboot your system. During the period of enable to reset, you could still
cancel reset by disabling the watchdog. Decide the way you want to set the period for reset by selecting
hardware or software watchdog (if both of them are available). For hardware setting period, select period by
jumper. For software setting period, normally setting hardware watchdog timer period to 2 sec.
Software watchdog using example.
EX.1: For DOS
Enable
C:\DOS> DEBUG
-o443 D
Disable
C:\DOS>DEBUG
-o441 F
EX.2: For assemble Language
Enable:
MOV DX, 443H
MOV AL, 0FH
OUT DX, AL
Disable:
MOV DX, 441H
MOV AL, 0FH
OUT DX, AL
Note: F is the period of software watchdog timer (normally F indicated 0 sec.). 0 to 9 and A to F
are used for represent different period. Normally, the step is 2 sec. That means E is 2, D is
4, 2 is 26, 1 is 28 and 0 is 30 seconds.
