Central Processing Unit (CPU)
2.4.1
Overview
The motherboard comes with a surface mount LGA775 socket designed for
the Intel® Pentium® 4 processor in the 775-land package.
2.4.2
•
Your boxed Intel® Pentium® 4 LGA775 processor package should
come with installation instructions for the CPU, heatsink, and the
retention mechanism. If the instructions in this section do not match
the CPU documentation, follow the latter.
•
Check your motherboard to make sure that the PnP cap is on the
CPU socket and the socket contacts are not bent. Contact your
retailer immediately if the PnP cap is missing, or if you see any
damage to the PnP cap/socket contacts/motherboard components.
ASUS will shoulder the cost of repair only if the damage is shipment/
transit-related.
•
Keep the cap after installing the motherboard. ASUS will process
Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) requests only if the
motherboard comes with the cap on the LGA775 socket.
•
The product warranty does not cover damage to the socket
contacts resulting from incorrect CPU installation/removal, or
misplacement/loss/incorrect removal of the PnP cap.
Installing CPU
To install a CPU:
1.
Locate the CPU socket on the motherboard.
Before installing the CPU, make sure that the socket box is facing
towards you and the load lever is on your left.
2.
Press the load lever with your
thumb (A), then move it to the
left (B) until it is released from
the retention tab.
To prevent damage to the
socket pins, do not remove
the PnP cap unless you are
installing a CPU.

•
When you buy a boxed Intel® Pentium® 4 processor, the package
includes the CPU fan and heatsink assembly. If you buy a
CPU separately, make sure that you use only Intel®-certified
multi-directional heatsink and fan.
•
Your Intel® Pentium® 4 LGA775 heatsink and fan assembly comes in
a push-pin design and requires no tool to install.
Chapter 2: Basic installation
If you purchased a separate CPU heatsink and fan assembly, make
sure that the Thermal Interface Material is properly applied to the CPU
heatsink or CPU before you install the heatsink and fan assembly.

Jumpers
Clear RTC RAM (CLRTC)
This jumper allows you to clear the Real Time Clock (RTC) RAM in
CMOS. You can clear the CMOS memory of date, time, and system
setup parameters by erasing the CMOS RTC RAM data. The onboard
button cell battery powers the RAM data in the CMOS, which includes
the system setup information such as system passwords.
To erase the RTC RAM:
1. Turn OFF the computer and unplug the power cord.
2. Remove the battery.
3. Move the jumper cap from pins 1-2 (default) to pins 2-3. Keep
the cap on pins 2-3 for about 5-10 seconds, then move the cap
back to pins 1-2.
4. Re-install the battery.
5. Plug the power cord and turn ON the computer.
6. Hold down the <Del> key during the boot process and enter BIOS
setup to re-enter data.

BIOS setup program
This motherboard supports a programmable firmware chip that you can
update using the provided utility described in section “2.1 Managing and
updating your BIOS.”
Use the BIOS Setup program when you are installing a motherboard,
reconfiguring your system, or prompted to “Run Setup”. This section
explains how to configure your system using this utility.
Even if you are not prompted to use the Setup program, you can change
the configuration of your computer in the future. For example, you can
enable the security password feature or change the power management
settings. This requires you to reconfigure your system using the BIOS Setup
program so that the computer can recognize these changes and record
them in the CMOS RAM of the firmware hub.
The firmware hub on the motherboard stores the Setup utility. When you
start up the computer, the system provides you with the opportunity to
run this program. Press <Del> during the Power-On Self-Test (POST) to
enter the Setup utility; otherwise, POST continues with its test routines.
If you wish to enter Setup after POST, restart the system by pressing
<Ctrl> + <Alt> + <Del>, or by pressing the reset button on the system
chassis. You can also restart by turning the system off and then back on.
Do this last option only if the first two failed.
The Setup program is designed to make it as easy to use as possible. Being
a menu-driven program, it lets you scroll through the various sub-menus
and make your selections from the available options using the navigation
keys.
•
The default BIOS settings for this motherboard apply for most
conditions to ensure optimum performance. If the system becomes
unstable after changing any BIOS settings, load the default settings
to ensure system compatibility and stability. Select the Load Default
Settings item under the Exit Menu. See section “5.7 Exit Menu.”
•
The BIOS setup screens shown in this section are for reference
purposes only, and may not exactly match what you see on your
screen.
