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 bat13
Chapter 2
tery 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.
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.
Installing software requires an installed HDD. Software can be loaded in
the PPC-L126 using any of four methods:
2.4.1 Method 1: Use the Ethernet
You can use the Ethernet port to download software to the HDD.
2.4.2 Method 2: Use the COM or parallel port
You can use Lap Link 6 or similar transmission software. Connect
another PC to the PPC-L126 with an appropriate cable and transmit the
software to the PPC-L126.
2.4.3 Method 3: Use a CD-ROM
If required, insert your operating system's installation or setup diskette
into the diskette drive until the release button pops out.
The BIOS of the panel PC supports system boot-up directly from the CDROM drive. You may also insert your system installation CD-ROM into
the CD-ROM drive.
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.

Chapter 4 Jumper Settings and Connectors
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.
Chapter 9 Award BIOS Setup
The PPC-L126 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 shown in the setup program and tells you how to modify
the settings according to your system configuration. Some items are not
explained, because it is recommended that users don’t change them.
Note:
Values for the various setup items that appear on
your screen (including default values) may not be the
same as those shown 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.
9.1 System test and initialization
These routines test and initialize board hardware. If the routines encounter an error during the tests, you will either hear a few short beeps or see
an error message on the screen. There are two kinds of errors: fatal and
non-fatal. The system can usually continue the booting with non-fatal
errors. Non-fatal errors are usually shown with the following instructions:
press <F1> to RESUME
Write down the message and press the F1 key to continue booting.
9.1.1 System configuration verification
These routines check the current system configuration against the values
stored in the board’s CMOS memory. If they do not match, the program
outputs an error message. You will then need to run the BIOS setup program to set the configuration information in memory.
The CMOS settings need changing in the following situations:
1.
You are starting your system for the first time
2.
You have changed the hardware attached to your system
3.
The CMOS memory has lost power and the configuration information has been erased.
The PPC-L126 CMOS memory has an integral lithium battery backup.
The battery backup should last ten years in normal service, but when it
finally runs down, you will need to replace the complete unit.

9.2 Award BIOS setup
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 CMOS RAM so that it retains the Setup information
when the power is turned off.
9.2.1 Entering setup
Power on the computer and press <Del> immediately. This will allow you
to enter Setup.

Programming the
Watchdog Timer
The PPC-L126 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.
Appendix A Programming the Watchdog
Timer
To use the watchdog timer, your program must write a time interval value
to I/O port 443 (hex). The value range is from 01 (hex) to 3E (hex), and
the related time interval is from 1 sec. to 62 sec.
Data Time Interval
01
1 sec.
02
2 sec.
03

62 sec.
After data entry, your program must refresh the watchdog timer by writing to I/O port 443 (hex) while simultaneously setting it. To disable the
watchdog timer, your program should read I/O port 443 (hex).
The following BASIC program shows how to use the watchdog timer.
