Chapter 4. AWARD BIOS SETUP
4.1 Introduction
This part of manual discusses Award's Setup program built into the ROM BIOS.
The Setup program allows users to modify the basic system configuration. This
special information is then stored in battery-backed RAM so that it retains the
Setup information when the power is turned off.
4.2 Starting Setup
The Award BIOS is immediately activated when you first power on the computer.
The BIOS reads the system information contained in 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:
1. By pressing <Del> immediately after switching the system on, or
2. By pressing the <Del>key when the following message appears briefly at the
bottom of the screen during the POST.
Press DEL to enter SETUP.
If the message disappears before you can respond to it 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 will not boot, an error message will be displayed and
you will again be asked to...
PRESS F1 TO CONTINUE, DEL TO ENTER SETUP
13
4.3 Using Setup
In general, you use the arrow keys to highlight items, press <Enter> to select,
use the PageUp and PageDown keys to change entries, press <F1> for help and
press <Esc> to quit. The following table provides more detail about how to
navigate in the Setup program using the keyboard.

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.
If, after making and saving system changes with Setup, you discover that your
computer no longer is able to boot, the Award BIOS supports an override to the
CMOS settings which resets your system to its default settings.
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.

Main Menu
Once you enter the AwardBIOS™ CMOS Setup Utility, the Main Menu will appear
on the screen. The Main Menu allows you to select from several setup functions
and two exit choices. Use the arrow keys to select among the items and press
<Enter> to accept and enter the sub-menu.

ACPI Function
This item allows you to enable/disable the Advanced Configuration and
Power Management (ACPI).
Options: Enabled, Disabled.
Power Management
This category allows you to select the type (or degree) of power saving and
is directly related to the following modes:
1. HDD Power Down : When enabled and after the set time of system
inactivity, the hard disk drive will be powered down while all other
devices remain active.
2. Doze Mode: When enabled and after the set time of system inactivity,
the CPU clock will run at slower speed while all other devices still operate
at full speed.
3. Suspend Mode: When enabled and after the set time of system
inactivity, all devices except the CPU will be shut off.
There are four selections for Power Management, three of which have fixed
mode settings.

Soft-Off by PWR-BTTN
Pressing the power button for more than 4 seconds forces the system to
enter the Soft-Off state when the system has “hung.”
Options: Delay 4 Sec, Instant-Off.
Power On by Ring
Wake Up events are I/O events whose occurrence can prevent the system
from entering a power saving mode or can awaken the system from such a
mode. In effect, the system remains alert for anything which occurs to a
device which is configured as On, even when the system is in a power down
mode.
Power On by Ring
An input signal on the serial Ring Indicator (RI) line (in other words, an
incoming call on the modem) and LAN WOL awakens the system from a soft
off state.
29
Resume by Alarm
When Enabled, your can set the date and time at which the RTC (real-time
clock) alarm awakens the system from Suspend mode.
The following is a list of IRQ’s, Interrupt ReQuests, which can be exempted
much as the COM ports and LPT ports above can. When an I/O device wants
to gain the attention of the operating system, it signals this by causing an
IRQ to occur. When the operating system is ready to respond to the request,
it interrupts itself and performs the service.

PnP/PCI Configurations
This section describes configuring the PCI bus system. PCI, or Personal
Computer Interconnect, is a system which allows I/O devices to operate at
speeds nearing the speed the CPU itself uses when communicating with its own
special components. This section covers some very technical items and it is
strongly recommended that only experienced users should make any changes to
the default settings.

Supervisor/User Password Setting
You can set either supervisor or user password, or both of them. The differences
between are:
Supervisor Password :
can enter and change the options of the setup menus.
User Password
:
just can only enter but do not have the right to change the options of the setup
menus. When you select this function, the following message will appear at the
center of the screen to assist you in creating a password.
ENTER PASSWORD:
Type the password, up to eight characters in length, and press <Enter>. The
password typed now will clear any previously entered password from CMOS
memory. You will be asked to confirm the password. Type the password again
and press <Enter>. You may also press <Esc> to abort the selection and not
enter a password.
To disable a password, just press <Enter> when you are prompted to enter the
password. A message will confirm the password will be disabled. Once the
password is disabled, the system will boot and you can enter Setup freely.
PASSWORD DISABLED.
When a password has been enabled, you will be prompted to enter it every time
you try to enter Setup. This prevents an unauthorized person from changing any
part of your system configuration.
Additionally, when a password is enabled, you can also require the BIOS to
request a password every time your system is rebooted. This would prevent
unauthorized use of your computer.
You determine when the password is required within the BIOS Features Setup
Menu and its Security option (see Section 3). If the Security option is set to
password will be required both at boot and at entry to Setup. If set to “Setup”,
prompting only occurs when trying to enter Setup.

4.16 Exit Selecting
Save & Exit Setup
Pressing <Enter> on this item asks for confirmation:
Save to CMOS and EXIT (Y/N)? Y
Pressing “Y” stores the selections made in the menus in CMOS – a special
section of memory that stays on after you turn your system off. The next
time you boot your computer, the BIOS configures your system according to
the Setup selections stored in CMOS. After saving the values the system is
restarted again.
Exit Without Saving
Pressing <Enter> on this item asks for confirmation:
Quit without saving (Y/N)? Y
This allows you to exit Setup without storing in CMOS any change. The
previous selections remain in effect. This exits the Setup utility and restarts
your computer.

Appendix A. Watch-Dog Timer
The WatchDog Timer is a device to ensure that standalone systems can always
recover from abnormal conditions that cause the system to crash. These
conditions may result from an external EMI or a software bug. When the system
stops working, hardware on the board will perform hardware reset (cold boot) to
bring the system back to a known state.
Three I/O ports control the operation of WatchDog Timer.

Set WatchDog Time period
Enable the WatchDog Timer.
Disable the WatchDog Timer.
Prior to enable the WatchDog Timer, user has to set the time-out period. The
resolution of the timer is 1 second and the range of the timer is from 1 sec to 255
sec. You need to send the time-out value to the I/O port – 443H, and then enable
it by reading data from the same I/O port – 443H. This will activate the timer that
will eventually time out and reset the CPU board. To ensure that this reset
condition won’t occur, the WatchDog Timer must be periodically refreshed by
reading the same I/O port 443H. This must be done within the time-out period
that is set by the software, please refer to the example program. Finally, we have
to disable the WatchDog timer by reading the I/O port -- 843H or 043H.
Otherwise the system could reset unconditionally.
A tolerance of at least 5% must be maintained to avoid unknown routines in the
operating system (DOS), such as disk I/O that can be very time-consuming.
Therefore if the time-out period has been set to 10 seconds, the I/O port 443H
must be read within 7 seconds.
Example Assembly Program:
TIMER_PORT = 443H
TIMER_START = 443H
TIMER_STOP = 843H

Appendix C. ATX Power Supply
The following notes show how to connect ATX Power Supply to the backplanes
and / or the ISBC card.
A. For backplanes with ATX Connector
Please disconnect the AC cord of the Power Supply from the AC source to
prevent sudden electric surge to the board.
2. Check the type of your CPU board. CPU boards may support ATX power
supply but has two different types of power switch connection:
2.1. ROCKY-4784EVG (through Power Button & GND):
1.
Connect the ATX power button switch to the CN10 (power button) and
connect the power cable from Backplane to CN17 of CPU card.
If you want to turn ON the system, just press the button once. And if you
want to turn off the power supply, please press the ATX power switch
button down for about 4 seconds.
39
B. For the backplanes with ATX power supply connector
For some SBC without ATX power ON/OFF function, then you can control the
ATX power supply through backplane’s PS ON connector. Please refer to the
figure below; connection can be made simply as following:
1. Connect the ON/OFF (ordinary one) switch to Pin 2 (PS ON) and Pin 3 (GND)
of connector CN2
2. You may now turn the power ON/OFF by the power switch

Appendix D. How to use Wake-Up Function
The ROCKY-4784EVG provides two kind of Wake up Function. This page describes
how to use Modem Wake-Up and LAN Wake-Up function. Wake-Up function is
working while you use ATX power supply,
Wake –Up On Modem(Ring) :
You must set the option Wake-Up On LAN/Ring of CMOS SETUP to be
enabled. The ATX power supply will be switched on when there is a ring
signal detected on pin “RI” of serial port.
Wake-Up On LAN:
When your computer is in power-down status, you can see LAN Link/Active
LED is flashing. This status indicates that the LAN chip has entered standby
mode and waits for Wake-Up signal. You can use other computers to wake
up your computer by sending ID to it.
ID: ID is the address of your system LAN. Every LAN chip has a factory-set
ID, which you can find it from network information in WINDOWS.
ID’s format is xxxxxxxxxxxx
Example ID: 009027388320
