Preparation
Before you proceed, make sure that you have all the components you plan
to install in the system.
Basic components to install
1. Central processing unit (CPU)
2. DDR Dual Inline Memory Module (DIMM)
3. Expansion card(s)
4. Hard disk drive
5. Optical drive
6. Floppy disk drive
Tool

2.2
Before you proceed
Take note of the following precautions before you install components into
the system.
•
Use a grounded wrist strap or touch a safely grounded object or a
metal object, such as the power supply case, before handling
components to avoid damaging them due to static electricity.
•
Hold components by the edges to avoid touching the ICs on them.
•
Whenever you uninstall any component, place it on a grounded
antistatic pad or in the bag that came with the component.
®
The motherboard comes with an onboard standby power LED. This LED
lights up to indicate that the system is ON, in sleep mode or in soft-off
mode, and not powered OFF. Unplug the power cable from the power outlet
and make sure that the standby power LED is OFF before installing any
system component.

Installing a CPU
The ASUS motherboard comes with a surface mount LGA775 socket
designed for the Intel® Pentium® 4 processor in the 775-land package.
2.5.1
Removing the CPU fan and heatsink assembly
The system package includes a pre-installed proprietary CPU fan and
heatsink assembly to ensure optimum thermal condition and performance.
D O N O T replace the proprietary CPU fan and heatsink with other
models.
You must remove the CPU fan and heatsink assembly before you can install
a CPU.
To remove the CPU fan and heatsink assembly:
1.
Disconnect the CPU fan cable from the CPU fan connector on the
motherboard.
2.
Using a Phillips screwdriver, remove and set aside the four screws that
secure the fan and heatsink assembly to the motherboard.
3.
Carefully lift the fan and heatsink assembly, and set it aside.

CPU installation
•
Your boxed Intel® Pentium® 4 LGA775 processor package should
come with installation instructions for the CPU, heatsink, and the
retention mechanism. If the instructions in this section do not match
the CPU documentation, follow the latter.
•
Check your motherboard to make sure that the PnP cap is on the
CPU socket and the socket contacts are not bent. Contact your
retailer immediately if the PnP cap is missing, or if you see any
damage to the PnP cap/socket contacts/motherboard components.
ASUS will shoulder the cost of repair only if the damage is shipment/
transit-related.
•
Keep the cap after installing the motherboard. ASUS will process
Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) requests only if the
motherboard comes with the cap on the LGA775 socket.
•
The product warranty does not cover damage to the socket
contacts resulting from incorrect CPU installation/removal, or
misplacement/loss/incorrect removal of the PnP cap.
Installing the CPU
To install a CPU:
Locate the CPU socket on the motherboard.

Memory configurations
You may install up to 2 GB system memory using 256 MB, 512 MB, and
1 GB DDR DIMMs.
2-10
•
Installing DDR DIMMS other than the recommended configurations
may cause memory sizing error or system boot failure. Use any of
the recommended configurations in the table on the next page.
•
Install only i d e n t i c a l (the same type and size) DDR DIMM in
DIMM_A and DIMM_B.
•
Always install DIMMs with the same CAS latency. For optimum
compatibility, we recommend that you obtain memory modules from
the same vendor.
•
Due to chipset resource allocation, the system may detect less than
2 GB system memory when you installed two 1 GB DDR memory.
•
This motherboard does not support memory modules made up of
128 Mb chips or double-sided x16 memory modules.

Installing an expansion card
In the future, you may need to install expansion cards. The motherboard
has one PCI and one PCI Express™ x16 slot. The following sub-sections
describe the slots and the expansion cards that they support.
Make sure to unplug the power cord before adding or removing
expansion cards. Failure to do so may cause you physical injury and
damage the motherboard.

ASUS Instant Music
The motherboard is equipped with a BIOS-based audio playback feature
called I n s t a n t M u s i cc. The onboard audio AC’97 CODEC supports this
feature, which requires an optical drive (CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, or CD-RW).
•
Instant Music only supports CDs in audio format.
•
Instant Music does not work if you installed and enabled an add-on
sound card.
•
Instant Music only supports PS/2 keyboard.
To enable ASUS Instant Music:
1.
Connect the analog audio cable from the optical drive to the 4-pin CD
connector on the motherboard. See section “4.4 Connectors” for the
location of the CD connector.
Make sure to connect the optical drive audio cable. Otherwise, you
cannot control the audio volume using the Instant Music function keys.
2.
Turn on the system and enter BIOS by pressing the D e l e t e key
during the Power On Self-Tests (POST).
3.
In the I n s t a n t M u s i c C o n f i g u r a t i o n menu, select the item
I n s t a n t M u s i c and set it to E n a b l e d

The I n s t a n t M u s i c C D - R O M D r i v e item appears if you enabled
Instant Music. Highlight the item then press <Enter> to display the
CD-ROM options.

5.
Save your changes and exit BIOS Setup.
•
The Scroll Lock LED is fixed to ON after enabling Instant Music.
•
The Caps Lock LED turns ON when you pause the CD playback.
•
When set to Instant Music mode, the system wake-up features
(LAN, keyboard, mouse, USB) are deactivated. In this case, power up
the system using the power switch.
•
If the system lost connection or did not detect any optical drive, the
Instant Music feature turns OFF (disabled) automatically. A “beep”
indicates this condition.

Jumpers
Clear RTC RAM (CLRTC)
This jumper allows you to clear the Real Time Clock (RTC) RAM in
CMOS. You can clear the CMOS memory of date, time, and system
setup parameters by erasing the CMOS RTC RAM data. The RAM
data in CMOS, that include system setup information such as system
passwords, is powered by the onboard button cell battery.
To erase the RTC RAM:
1. Turn OFF the computer and unplug the power cord.
2. Remove the battery.
3. Move the jumper cap from pins 1-2 (default) to pins 2-3. Keep
the cap on pins 2-3 for about 5-10 seconds, then move the cap
back to pins 1-2.
4. Re-install the battery.
5. Plug the power cord and turn ON the computer.

ASUS CrashFree BIOS 2 utility
The ASUS CrashFree BIOS 2 is an auto recovery tool that allows you to
restore the BIOS file when it fails or gets corrupted during the updating
process. You can update a corrupted BIOS file using the motherboard
support CD or the floppy disk that contains the updated BIOS file.
•
Prepare the motherboard support CD or the floppy disk containing
the updated motherboard BIOS before using this utility.
•
Make sure that you rename the original or updated BIOS file in the
floppy disk to P 5 G 6 T . R O M
M.
Recovering the BIOS from a floppy disk
To recover the BIOS from a floppy disk:

5.2
BIOS setup program
This motherboard supports a programmable firmware chip that you can
update using the provided utility described in section “5.1 Managing and
updating your BIOS.”
Use the BIOS Setup program when you are installing a motherboard,
reconfiguring your system, or prompted to “Run Setup.” This section
explains how to configure your system using this utility.
Even if you are not prompted to use the Setup program, you can change
the configuration of your computer in the future. For example, you can
enable the security password feature or change the power management
settings. This requires you to reconfigure your system using the BIOS
Setup program so that the computer can recognize these changes and
record them in the CMOS RAM of the firmware hub.
The firmware hub on the motherboard stores the Setup utility. When you
start up the computer, the system provides you with the opportunity to
run this program. Press <Del> during the Power-On-Self-Test (POST) to
enter the Setup utility; otherwise, POST continues with its test routines.
If you wish to enter Setup after POST, restart the system by pressing
<Ctrl+Alt+Delete>. You can also restart by turning the system off and then
back on. Do this last option only if the first two failed.
The Setup program is designed to make it as easy to use as possible. Being
a menu-driven program, it lets you scroll through the various sub-menus
and make your selections from the available options using the navigation
keys.
•
The default BIOS settings for this motherboard apply for most
conditions to ensure optimum performance. If the system becomes
unstable after changing any BIOS settings, load the default settings
to ensure system compatibility and stability. Select the L o a d
D e f a u l t S e t t i n g s item under the Exit Menu. See section “5.7 Exit
Menu.”
•
The BIOS setup screens shown in this section are for reference
purposes only, and may not exactly match what you see on your
screen.
