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.

S1/POS
S3/STR
S1/POS: The S1 sleep mode is a low power
state. In this state, no system context is lost
(CPU or chipset) and hardware maintains all
system context.
S3/STR: The S3 sleep mode is a lower power
state where the information of system
configuration and open applications/files is
saved to main memory that remains powered
while most other hardware components turn off
to save energy. The information stored in
memory will be used to restore the system
when a “wake up” event occurs.

Chapter 2
RAID 0
RAID 0 uses an algorithm to break files into smaller files of the user defined size called the stripe size. Once a
file is broken down into these stripes, each drive in the array receives one or more of these fragments. For
example, if there are two drives in a RAID 0 array with a 64KB stripe size and the RAID controller gets a
command to write a single 128KB file, the file is broken down into two 64KB stripes. Next, one of the two
stripes is sent to disk 1 and the other to disk 2 simultaneously This completes the write process.
Naturally, this decreases the time required to write a file since more than one disk is working to store the
information. In our example above the time associated with writing our 128KB file turns out to be the time
required to write a single 64KB file, since this is what is what occurs simultaneously on both disks in the array.
The speed of reading a file back is also increased with a sufficiently large file. Let's use our 128KB file on a two
disk RAID 0 array with a 64KB stripe size for example again. After the data is stored on both drives in the
array, it can be read back by reading the two 64KB files from each drive at the same time. Thus, once again,
the time required to read back our 128KB file is actually only the time required to read a single 64KB file.
In some situations, when a file is smaller than the stripe, the file is not broken up and instead is written to the
array as is. This results in no speed improvement over a non RAID 0 setup because the drives on the array are
not working together when reading or writing.
At the same time, an extremely small stripe size makes a drive do more work than it can handle and can
significantly slow down RAID 0 performance as well. For example, if we had a 1KB stripe size and a 128KB
file, each drive would have to be written to 64 times to store 64 different 1KB files. This creates a bottleneck as
the drive attempts to read or write a large number of times for a single file.
As we mentioned before, RAID 0 has no fault tolerance, meaning that if one drive in the array fails, the whole
array is shot. There is no way to rebuild or repair the information stored on a RAID 0 array. This makes a RAID
0 is setup the most susceptible to failure RAID type, a fact that usually keeps users with sensitive data from
choosing RAID 0 as their RAID setup.
At the same time, however, RAID 0 is the fastest of all RAID setups. Since there is no overhead required to
store extra information for fault tolerance, the speed of RAID 0 can theoretically perform 2 times the speed of a
single drive when there are 2 drives in the array. Adding more drives only increases this theoretical
performance amount, so if you have a 6 drive RAID 0 array, performance could be as large as 6 times the
performance of a single drive.
Using different hard drives in a RAID 0 setup can result in two problems. First off, the size of the RAID array
will only be the size of the smallest drive multiplied by the number of drives in the array. This is because the
controller always writes to all the drives in the array and once one is filled no more information can be stored
on the array. Secondly, the speed of a RAID 0 setup is only as fast as the slowest drive in the array. Because
chunks of data are being written to the disks at the same time, if one drive is slower than the rest the others
must sit and wait for the slowest drive to finish. It is for these reasons that it is suggested that identical drives
be used on a RAID 0 setup.
What RAID 0 boils down to is speed and little more. The fact of the matter is that RAID 0 is not redundant at all,
just fast. But for many users, this is all that is important.
Chapter 2
62
RAID 1
RAID 1 works by writing identical sets of information to two drives in an array. When the controller is sent a
64KB file to be written to a two disk RAID 1 array, the controller sends identical copies of this 64KB file to both
disks in the array. Reads are the same as on a single drive: the controller requests the file from one of the two
drives.
The special feature of RAID 1 is its fault tolerance. If either of the two drives in the array fails, no data is lost. If/
when a drive fails, the RAID controller simply uses the information off of the drive that is still available. When a
new drive is added to the array to fix the failed one, a mirroring occurs in which the data from the good drive is
written to the new drive to recreate the array again.
As one could suspect, RAID 1 offers very little in terms of performance. When requesting data from a drive,
some RAID controllers take information from the drive that is not busy or closer to the desired information,
theoretically resulting in faster data access. When writing, on the other hand, there is some overhead when
compared to a single drive as the controller must duplicate the file it is sent and then pass it along to the drives.
In a RAID 1 setup, identical drives are best in order to prevent lost space. Since the same data is being written
to two drives, the size of the RAID 1 array is equal to the size of the smallest drive in the array. For example, if
a 20GB drive and a 30GB drive are used in a RAID 1 setup, the array would only be 20GB with the 10 extra
gigabytes on the 30GB drive going to waste. The performance difference between two drives is also an issue
here, since a faster drive would have to wait for a slower drive before it could write more information.
RAID 1 is a good solution for those looking for security over speed. Although not the slowest of the common
RAID types, RAID 1 can be slower than a single drive in some cases (more on that in the benchmarks). What
RAID 1 does provide is a very safe environment, where failure of a single drive does not equate to any down
time.

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
!
Interrupt system
!
Three programmable timers
!
ROM subsystem
!
RAM subsystem
!
CMOS RAM subsystem and real time clock/calendar with battery backup
!
Onboard parallel interface controller
!
Embedded hard disk interface and one diskette drive interface
!
Keyboard and auxiliary device controllers
!
1.44M floppy controller
!
I/O ports
!
One parallel port
!
One PS/2-compatible mouse port
!
One PS/2-compatible keyboard port
NOTE: When Post executes a task, it uses a series of preset numbers called check points 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 BIOS common tasks carried out by POST. Each task is denoted by an
unique check point number. For other unique check point numbers that are not listed in the table, refer to the
corresponding product service guide.
Post Checkpoints List: The list may vary accordingly depending on your BIOS

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 120.
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”.
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.
BIOS Messages
97
Action/FRU
BIOS ROM checksum error - System halted
The checksum of the BIOS code in the BIOS chip is
incorrect, indicating the BIOS code may have become
corrupt. Contact your system dealer to replace the BIOS.
CMOS Battery Failed
The CMOS battery is no longer functional. Contact your
system dealer for a replacement the BIOS.
CMOS Checksum Error- defaults loaded
Checksum of CMOS is incorrect, so the system loads the
default equipment configuration. A checksum error may
indicate that CMOS has become corrupt. A weak battery
may have caused this error. Check the battery and replace
if necessary.
CPU at nnnn
Displays the running speed of CPU.
Display switch is set incorrectly
The display switch on the motherboard can be set to either
monochrome or color. This message indicates the switch is
set to a different setting than indicated in Setup. Determine
which setting is correct, and then either turn off the system
and change the jumper, or enter Setup and change the
Video selection.
