- 33 Hardware Installation GA-MA78GM-UD2H Motherboard - 34 - Chapter 2 BIOS Setup BIOS (Basic Input and Output System) records hardware
parameters of the system in the CMOS on the motherboard. Its major functions include conducting the Power-On Self-Test (POST) during system startup,
saving system parameters and loading operating system, etc. BIOS includes a BIOS Setup program that allows the user to modify basic system configuration
settings or to activate certain system features. When the power is turned off, the battery on the motherboard supplies the necessary power to the CMOS to
keep the configuration values in the CMOS. To access the BIOS Setup program, press the <Delete> key during the POST when the power is turned on.
To see more advanced BIOS Setup menu options, you can press <Ctrl> + <F1> in the main menu of the BIOS Setup program. To upgrade the BIOS, use
either the GIGABYTE Q-Flash or @BIOS utility. · Q-Flash allows the user to quickly and easily upgrade or back up BIOS without entering the operating
system. · @BIOS is a Windows-based utility that searches and downloads the latest version of BIOS from the Internet and updates the BIOS. For instructions
on using the Q-Flash and @BIOS utilities, refer to Chapter 4, "BIOS Update Utilities.
" · Because BIOS flashing is potentially risky, if you do not encounter problems using the current version of BIOS, it is recommended that you not flash the
BIOS. To flash the BIOS, do it with caution. Inadequate BIOS flashing may result in system malfunction. · BIOS will emit a beep code during the POST. Refer
to Chapter 5, "Troubleshooting," for the beep codes description. · It is recommended that you not alter the default settings (unless you need to) to prevent
system instability or other unexpected results. Inadequately altering the settings may result in system's failure to boot. If this occurs, try to clear the CMOS
values and reset the board to default values. (Refer to the "Load Optimized Defaults" section in this chapter or introductions of the battery/clearing CMOS
jumper in Chapter 1 for how to clear the CMOS values.) - 35 - BIOS Setup 2-1 Startup Screen Award Modular BIOS v6.
