1. Getting Started
1.1 Safety Precautions
Warning!
Always completely disconnect the power cord from your
chassis whenever you work with the hardware. Do not
make connections while the power is on. Sensitive
electronic components can be damaged by sudden power
surges. Only experienced electronics personnel should
open the PC chassis.
Caution!
Always ground yourself to remove any static charge before
touching the CPU card. Modern electronic devices are very
sensitive to static electric charges. As a safety precaution,
use a grounding wrist strap at all times. Place all electronic
components in a static-dissipative surface or static-shielded
bag when they are not in the chassis.

1.4 Manual Objectives
This manual describes in detail the Avalue Technology ECM-PNV Single Board.
We have tried to include as much information as possible but we have not duplicated
information that is provided in the standard IBM Technical References, unless it proved to
be necessary to aid in the understanding of this board.
We strongly recommend that you study this manual carefully before attempting to interface
with ECM-PNV series or change the standard configurations. Whilst all the necessary
information is available in this manual we would recommend that unless you are confident,
you contact your supplier for guidance.
Please be aware that it is possible to create configurations within the CMOS RAM that
make booting impossible. If this should happen, clear the CMOS settings, (see the
description of the Jumper Settings for details).
If you have any suggestions or find any errors concerning this manual and want to inform
us of these, please contact our Customer Service department with the relevant details.

User’s Manual
2.3 Jumper and Connector List
You can configure your board to match the needs of your application by setting jumpers. A
jumper is the simplest kind of electric 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 two pins.
The jumper settings are schematically depicted in this manual as follows:
A pair of needle-nose pliers may be helpful when working with jumpers.
Connectors on the board are linked to external devices such as hard disk drives, a
keyboard, or floppy drives. In addition, the board has a number of jumpers that allow you to
configure your system to suit your application.
If you have any doubts about the best hardware configuration for your application, contact
your local distributor or sales representative before you make any changes.
The following tables list the function of each of the board’s jumpers and connectors.

3. BIOS Setup
36 ECM-PNV User’s Manual
User’s Manual
3.1 Introduction
The BIOS setup program allows users to modify the basic system configuration. In this
following chapter will describe how to access the BIOS setup program and the
configuration options that may be changed.
3.2 Starting Setup
The AMI BIOS™ is immediately activated when you first power on the computer. The BIOS
reads the system information contained in the CMOS and begins the process of checking
out the system and configuring it. When it finishes, the BIOS will seek an operating system
on one of the disks and then launch and turn control over to the operating system.
While the BIOS is in control, the Setup program can be activated in one of two ways:
By pressing <Del> immediately after switching the system on, or
By pressing the <Del> key when the following message appears briefly at the bottom of the
screen during the POST (Power On Self Test).
Press DEL to enter SETUP
If the message disappears before you respond and you still wish to enter Setup, restart the
system to try again by turning it OFF then ON or pressing the "RESET" button on the
system case. You may also restart by simultaneously pressing <Ctrl>, <Alt>, and <Delete>
keys. If you do not press the keys at the correct time and the system does not boot, an error
message will be displayed and you will again be asked to.
Press F1 to Continue, DEL to enter SETUP

Getting Help
Press F1 to pop up a small help window that describes the appropriate keys to use and the
possible selections for the highlighted item. To exit the Help Window press <Esc> or the F1
key again.
3.5
In Case of Problems
If, after making and saving system changes with Setup, you discover that your computer no
longer is able to boot, the AMI BIOS supports an override to the CMOS settings which
resets your system to its defaults.
The best advice is to only alter settings which you thoroughly understand. To this end, we
strongly recommend that you avoid making any changes to the chipset defaults. These
defaults have been carefully chosen by both Award and your systems manufacturer to
provide the absolute maximum performance and reliability. Even a seemingly small change
to the chipset setup has the potential for causing you to use the override.
