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/flat. 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.

turning it OFF and On. You may also restart the system by simultaneously pressing [Ctrl+Alt+Delete].

Base Memory
Refers to the option of memory that is available
to standard DOS programs. DOS systems have
an address space od 1MB, but the top 384KB
(called high memory) is reserved for system use.
This leaves 640 KB of conventional memory.
Everything above 1MB is either extended or
extended memory.
The BIOS POST will determine
the amount of base (or
conventional) memory installed
in the sytem.
Extended Memory
Memory above and beyond the standard 1MB of
base memory that DOS supports. Extended
memory is only available in PCs with an Intel
80286 or later microprocessor. Extended
memory is not configured in any special manner
and is therefore unavailable to most DOS
programs. However, MS Windows and OS/2 can
use extended memory.
The BIOS determines how much
extended memory is present
during the POST.

Total based and extended memory, and I/O ROM

Options
This option allows you to enable/disable the
feature of auto detecting the clock frequency of
the installed PCI bus.
Enabled
When the motherboard’s clock generator pulses,
the extreme values (spikes) of the pulses creates
EMI (Electromagnetic Interference). The spread
Spectrum function reduces the EMI generated by
modulating the pulses so that the spikes of the
pulses are reduced to flatter curves. If you do not
have any EMI problem, leave the setting at
Disabled for optimal system stability and
performance. But if you are plagued by EMI,
setting to Enabled for EMI reduction. Remember
to disable Spread Spectrum if you are
overlocking because even a slight jitter can
introduce a temporary boost in clockspeed which
may just cause your overlock ed processor to
lock up.

Power-On Self-Test (POST)
Before the computer can be used, all the components must be tested and initialized, and the operating system
must be bootstrapped into memory. This process is know as the power-on Self test(POST), generally under
the control of the BIOS.
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. During POST, system
reports test or initialization failure through Beep codes, display error messages on screen(if available), or LED.
The system halts when fatal error occurs.
The main components on the main board that must be diagnosed and/or initialized by POST to ensure system
functionality are as follows:

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

POST Check Points
When POST executes a task, it uses a series of preset numbers called check point to be latched at port 80h,
indicating the stages it is currently running. This latch can be read and shown on a debug board.
The following table describes the Acer common tasks carried out by POST. A unique check point number
represents each task.

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 Sympton List”.
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.
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.
