1.
This Service Guide provides you with all technical information relating to the BASIC CONFIGURATION
decided for Acer's "global" product offering. To better fit local market requirements and enhance product
competitiveness, your regional office MAY have decided to extend the functionality of a machine (e.g.
add-on card, modem, or extra memory capability). These LOCALIZED FEATURES will NOT be covered
in this generic service guide. In such cases, please contact your regional offices or the responsible
personnel/channel to provide you with further technical details.

available on your regional web or channel. If, for whatever reason, a part number change is made, it will
not be noted in the printed Service Guide. For ACER-AUTHORIZED SERVICE PROVIDERS, your Acer
office may have a DIFFERENT part number code to those given in the FRU list of this printed Service
Guide. You MUST use the list provided by your regional Acer office to order FRU parts for repair and
service of customer machines.

System Utilities
Most systems are already configured by the manufacturer or the dealer. There is no need to run
Setup when starting the computer unless you get a Run Setup message.
The Setup program loads configuration values into the battery-backed nonvolatile memory called CMOS RAM.
This memory area is not part of the system RAM.
NOTE: If you repeatedly receive Run Setup messages, the battery may be bad. In this case, the system
cannot retain configuration values in CMOS.
Before you run Setup, make sure that you have saved all open files. The system reboots immediately after
you exit Setup.

Cylinder
Specifies your hard disk’s number of cylinders, and is

setting.
Only Device Detection Mode is
set to User, the item Cylinder
will be available; Otherwise it is
non-configurable.
Head
Specifies your hard disk’s number of heads, and is
automatically set depending on your Type parameter
setting.
Only Device Detection Mode is
set to User, the item Head will
be available; Otherwise it is
non-configurable.
Sector
Specifies your hard disk’s number of sectors, and is
automatically set depending on your Type parameter
setting.
Only Device Detection Mode is
set to User, the item Sector will
be available; Otherwise it is
non-configurable.
Size
Specifies the size of your hard disk, in MB, and is
automatically set depending on your Type parameter
setting
It will turn to gray and will be
non- configurable.
Hard Disk LBA Mode
Set to “Auto” under DOS and Windows. Set to
“Disabled” under Novell Netware and Unix.
Auto or Disabled
Hard Disk Block Mode
This function enhances disk performance depending
on the hard disk in use. If you set this parameter to
Auto, the BIOS utility automatically detects if the
installed hard disk drive supports the Block Mode
function. If supported, it allows data transfer in blocks
(multiple sectors) at a rate of 256 bytes per cycle.
Auto or Disabled
Hard Disk 32-bit Access
Enabling this parameter improves system
performance by allowing the use of the 32-bit hard
disk access. This enhanced IDE feature works only
under DOS, Windows 3.x, Windows 95/98, Windows
NT, and Novell NetWare.
Enabled or Disabled
Advanced PIO Mode
When set to Auto, the BIOS utility automatically
detects if the installed hard disk supports the function,
it allows for faster data recovery and read/ write
timing that reduces hard disk activity time. This
results in better hard disk performance.
Auto, Mode 0, 1, 2, 3 or 4
DMA Transfer Mode
The Ultra DMA and Multi-DMA modes enhance hard
disk performance by increasing the transfer rate.
However, besides enabling these features in the
BIOS Setup, both the Ultra DMA and Multi-DMA
modes require the DMA driver to be loaded.

Otherwise, select Manual.
Note: Refer to your PCI card manual for technical
information.
PCI Slot 1
When you set the PCI IRQ Setting parameter to Auto,
these parameters specify the auto-assigned interrupt for
each of the PCI devices. If you set the PCI IRQ Setting
parameter to Manual, you need to specify the interrupt
that you want to assign for each PCI device installed in
your system.

PCI IRQ Sharing
Setting this parameter to Yes allows you to assign the
same IRQ to two different devices. To disable the
feature, select No.
Yes or No
Note: If there are no IRQs available to assign for the
remaining device function, we recommend that you
enable this parameter.
VGA Palette Snoop
This parameter permits you to use the palette snooping
feature if you installed more than one VGA card in the
system. The VGA palette snoop function allows the
control palette register (CPR) to manage and update the
VGA RAMDAC (Digital Analog Converter, a color data
storage) of each VGA card installed in the system. The
snooping process lets the CPR send a signal to all the
VGA cards so that they can update their individual
RAMDACs. The signal goes through the cards
continuously until all RAMDAC data has been updated.
This allows the display of multiple images on the screen.
Disabled or Enabled
Note: Some VGA cards have required settings for this
feature. Check your VGA card manual before setting this
parameter.

Assignments
Set this parameter to Yes to avoid IRQ conflict when
installing non-PnP or PnP ISA cards. This clears all
resource assignments and allows BIOS to reassign

Power-On Self-Test (POST)
Each time you turn on the system, the Power-on Self Test (POST) is initiated. Several items are tested during
POST, but is for the most part transparent to the user.
The Power-On Self Test (POST) is a BIOS procedure that boots the system, initializes and diagnoses the
system components, and controls the operation of the power-on password option. If POST discovers errors in
system operations at power-on, it displays error messages on screen, generates a check point code at port
80h or even halts the system if the error is fatal.
The main components on the main board that must be diagnosed and/or initialized by POST to ensure system
functionality are as follows:

Microprocessor with built-in numeric co-processor and cache memory subsystem
!
Direct Memory Access (DMA) controller
!

!

POST Error Messages List
If you cannot run the diagnostics program tests but did receive a POST error message, use “POST Error
Messages List” to diagnose system problems. If you did not receive any error message, look for a description
of your error symptoms in “Error Symptoms List” on page 64.
NOTE: When you have deemed it necessary to replace an FRU, and have done so, you must run a total
system check to ensure that no other activity has been affected by the change. This system check can
be done through the diagnostics program.
NOTE: Check all power supply voltages, switch, and jumper settings before you replace the main board. Also
check the power supply voltages if you have a “system no-power” condition.
If you are unable to correct the problem by using the “BIOS Messages List” table and “Error Symptoms List”
table, go to “Undetermined Problems” on page 68.
NOTE: To diagnose a problem, first find the BIOS error messages in the left column. If directed to a check
procedure, replace the FRU indicated in the check procedure. If no check procedure is indicated, the
first Action/FRU listed in right column is the most likely cause.

FRU (Field Replaceable Unit) List
This chapter gives you the FRU (Field Replaceable Unit) listing in global configurations of Veriton 3200. Refer
to this chapter whenever ordering for parts to repair or for RMA (Return Merchandise Authorization).
IMPORTANT: Please note WHEN ORDERING FRU PARTS, that you should check the most up-to-date
information available on your regional web or channel. For whatever reasons a part number change
is made, it will not be noted in the printed Service Guide. For ACER-AUTHORIZED SERVICE
PROVIDERS, your Acer office may have a DIFFERENT part number code to those given in the FRU
list of this printed Service Guide. You MUST use the local FRU list provided by your regional Acer
office to order FRU parts for repair and service of customer machines.
NOTE: To scrap or to return the defective parts, you should follow the local government ordinance or
regulations on how best to dispose it, or follow the rules set by your regional Acer office on how to
