Installing Accessory Boards
8 The accessory board may need a special connection, such as:
•
•
WOL (Wake on LAN) connector to the Network board.
CD-ROM drive to the sound board (if you no longer want to use
the integrated audio).
Integrated Audio Connector
If you install an add-on sound
board, remove the cable in this
connector and insert it into the
sound board’s connector.
WOL Connector
For more information, refer to the documentation that came with
the accessory board. The necessary cables are usually provided with
the accessory board.
NOTE
If you install a network board and connect it to the WOL connector, you
must enable the Suspend Wake-Up/Integrated Network and/or
Integrated Network fields in the Power menu of the PC’s Setup
program. This only applies if the network board supports these modes.
To enter the Setup program, press F2 during startup.
If you install an add-on sound board (and you no longer want to use the
integrated audio), you must set the Integrated Audio Interface in
the Advanced menu of the Setup program to Disabled.
9 Replace the cover (described in this chapter).

2 How to Install and Replace Components In Your Desktop PC
Installing Accessory Boards
Configuring Accessory Boards with Plug and Play
Plug and Play is an industry standard for automatically configuring
your PC's hardware resources and the accessory boards installed in it.
Your PC has configurable support for Plug and Play in the BIOS.
All PCI accessory boards are Plug and Play, although not all ISA boards
are. Check the accessory board’s documentation if you are unsure.
When you start your PC after installing an accessory board, the Plug
and Play BIOS automatically detects which hardware resources (IRQs,
DMAs, memory ranges, and I/O addresses) are used by PC components
(such as the keyboard, the communications ports, network adapters,
and accessory boards).
Windows 95 and
Windows 98
Operating systems that support Plug and Play, such as Windows 95 and
Windows 98, will automatically detect a newly installed Plug and Play
accessory board and install the driver for this device, if the driver is
available.
Windows NT 4.0
For operating systems that do not support Plug and Play, such as
Windows NT 4.0, refer to the operating system documentation for
information about installing accessory boards.
In Windows NT 4.0, click the Start button then click Help. You can
use the contents or index to find information about installing devices.
Windows NT 4.0 helps you through the installation of devices such as
modems and sound boards.
NOTE
After installing a new device in Windows NT 4.0, you must re-install the
Microsoft Service Pack to update the operating system for your PC.
To do this, click the Start button then select Programs – Windows
NT Update.
69
2 How to Install and Replace Components In Your Desktop PC
Installing Accessory Boards
Configuring non-Plug and Play ISA Accessory Boards
If you install an ISA accessory board that is not Plug and Play, you will
need to configure the board before your PC can use it. For instructions
about configuring the board, refer to the documentation that came
with the board.
