Virus Warning
BIOS
Setup
When enabled, you receive a warning message if a program (specifically, a virus) attempts to
write to the boot sector or the partition table of the hard disk drive. You should then run an antivirus program. Keep in mind that this feature protects only the boot sector, not the entire hard
drive.
Many disk diagnostic programs that access the boot sector table can trigger the
virus-warning message. If you plan to run such a program, we recommend that you
first disable the virus warning.

BIOS SETUP
CPU Internal Cache / External Cache
CPU Cache memory is additional memory that is much faster than conventional DRAM (system
memory) in which is built in in the processor. IF you enable this option, when the CPU requests
data, the system transfers the requested data from the main DRAM into cache memory for faster
access.
CPU L2 Cache ECC Checking
When you select Enabled, The ECC checking will ensured the accuracy of the data stored on the
L2 cache.
Processor Number Feature
If have Pentium !!! processor installed on the mainboard. Enable this option allows the serial
code inside the Pentium !!! processor to be published on certain application.
Quick Power On Self Test
Select Enabled to reduce the amount of time required to run the power-on self-test (POST). A
quick POST skips certain steps. We recommend that you normally disable quick POST. Better to
find a problem during POST than lose data during your work.
First/Second/Third/Boot Other Device
These fields allow you to decide the boot sequence of your bootable devices such as Hard Drive,
CD ROM...etc
Swap Floppy Drive
This field is effective only in systems with two floppy drives. Selecting Enabled assigns physical
drive B to logical drive A, and physical drive A to logical drive B.
Boot Up Floppy Seek
When enabled, the BIOS tests (seeks) floppy drives to determine whether they have 40 or 80
tracks. Only 360-KB floppy drives have 40 tracks; drives with 720 KB, 1.2 MB, and 1.44 MB
capacity all have 80 tracks. Because very few modern PCs have 40-track floppy drives, we
recommend that you set this field to Disabled to save time.

ACPI function
If you wish to use the ACPI function, you have to use operation system that supports ACPI like
Windows 98. During Windows 98 installation, you will have to provide specific parameter ( please
refer to Windows 98 manual for the parameters ).
When the ACPI function is installed in your PC system successfully, you will find the ACPI
function in the power management icon. The PW switch defined by the ACPI is different to the
BIOS setup and it always has the higher priority than what was defined in the system BIOS.
According to what was defined by the ACPI in Windows 98, the PW switch can be either the
"Standby switch" or "shutdown switch". When "Standby switch" is selected, the first click on the
PW switch will have the PC system turn into standby mode. If you want to "wake up" the PC
system, you will have to use the devices (such as keyboard, mouse .. etc) which is specified in
the Windows 98 ACPI function to trigger the PC system so that it will be back to full-on mode
(For more detail of ACPI function, please refer to Windows 98 user's manual for more detail
information).

The Award Plug and Play BIOS has the capacity to automatically configure the boot and Plug and
Play compatible devices along with a Plug and Play operating system such as Windows95. If
you set this field to “manual”, you may manually select specific resources in each of the sub
menu.
IRQ Resources:
When resources are controlled manually, you need to assign interrupt type for the devices.

PCI/VGA Palette Snoop:
Some display cards are non-standard VGA card (such as graphics accelerator or MPEG Card)
which may not display color properly on your screen. If you encounter problem, select “Enable”
may correct this problem. Leave it “Disabled” as the default setting if you are using the normal
display card.

Assign IRQ For VGA / USB:
If you have VGA card installed that require IRQ signal, or you have the USB device connected to
the onboard USB port, then select “Enabled” in this field. Otherwise, you may select “Disabled”
so that the related IRQ will be released for other devices.

CPU Warning Temperature
When enable, you will be notified when the CPU reach the critical level.
Current CPU Temperature
This field shows you the current system temperature
Current FAN1/FAN2 Speed
Shows you the current CPU FAN and/or System FAN operating speed.
This item allows you to set up the CPU shutdown Temperature. This item is only effective under

This section is means for over-clocking. We provide this features in view of the market demand
for over-clocking to increase system performance. However, it is not recommended to overclock your CPU since it may damage the CPU and Mainboard. Using this features is at your
CPU Vcore Select
You need to adjust the vcore voltage if you wish to over-clock your CPU to run at higher speed.
When you “Press Enter”, a menu with voltage selection will appeared for your selection.
Auto Detect DIMM/PCI Clk :
When “Enabled”, it will auto detect the devices presences on DIMM and PCI slots. When there is
no device presented on some of the PCI slots or DIMM connectors, the clock on the related
DIMM connectors and PCI slots will be disabled to reduce the Electro-Magnetic Interference
(EMI).

In case that you don't know how to use the Award BIOS CMOS Setup Utility to select the
settings, you may use this field to load the optimized default which is defined in the system
BIOS. This Optimized Default is recommended by our engineer that gives a series of parameters
for ensuring the best reliability.
If you are not familiar with the setup procedure or if you made some changes in the CMOS
setting and found that the PC system becomes unstable, you should try to load the optimized
default value first and then re-configure step by step again.

The “SUPERVISOR PASSWORD” is for you to control unauthorized access to your BIOS CMOS
Setup or Booting into the your PC system. The Supervisor Password option is used together with
the Security Option in section.
When "Setup" is selected in Security Option:
If you want to change the BIOS setting, you will have to key-in the Supervisor Password so that
you can start the BIOS CMOS Setup Utility and change the system setting.
When "System" is selected in Security Option:

When there is a password stored in the "SUPERVISOR PASSWORD"
1. When "Setup" is selected in Security Option:
When you use the "User Password" to log into the BIOS setup program, you can only select
"User Password", "SAVE & EXIT SETUP" and "EXIT WITHOUT SAVING" from the main menu.
(Using Supervisor Password to log into the PC system, you will have the complete right to access
all BIOS settings.)
2. When "System" is selected in Security Option:
When turn on the PC system, it will request you to enter the Password. Without correct
password, PC system will stop and the operation system won't be loaded.
