System Utilities
CMOS Setup Utility
CMOS setup is a hardware configuration program built into the system ROM, called the complementary metaloxide semiconductor (CMOS) Setup Utility. Since most systems are already properly configured and
optimized, there is no need to run this utility. You will need to run this utility under the following conditions.
•
When changing the system configuration settings
•
When redefining the communication ports to prevent any conflicts
•
When modifying the power management configuration
•
When changing the password or making other changes to the security setup
When a configuration error is detected by the system and you are prompted ("Run Setup"
message) to make changes to the CMOS setup
NOTE: If you repeatedly receive Run Setup messages, the battery may be bad. In this case, the system
cannot retain configuration values in CMOS. Ask a qualified technician for assistance.
•
CMOS setup loads the configuration values in a battery-backed nonvolatile memory called CMOS RAM. This
memory area is not part of the system RAM which allows configuration data to be retained when power is
turned off.
Before you run the CMOS Setup Utility, make sure that you have saved all open files. The system reboots
immediately after you close the Setup.
NOTE: CMOS Setup Utility will be simply referred to as “BIOS”, "Setup", or "Setup utility" in this guide.
The screenshots used in this guide display default system values. These values may not be the same
those found in your system.

Chapter 4
Beep Codes
Beep codes are used by the BIOS to indicate a serious or fatal error to the end user. Beep codes are used
when an error occurs before the system video has been initialized. Beep codes will be generated by the
system board speaker, commonly referred to as the PC speaker.
AMIBIOS displays the checkpoints in the bottom right corner of the screen during POST. This display method
is limited, since it only displays checkpoints that occur after the video card has been activated.
Not all computers using AMIBIOS enable this feature. In most cases, a checkpoint card is the best tool for
viewing AMIBIOS checkpoints.
Beep Symptom
Cause and Description
One short beep
System is ready.
System is OK.
Continuous one long beep
Memory not installed or memory error.
One long beep and two short beeps then
repeat.
VGA not installed or VGA error.
Graphics card error/not installed, graphics card memory
error or graphics card BIOS checksum error.
One long beep then two short beep
BIOS damaged.
BIOS is damaged, BIOS POST jumps to Boot Block to
execute the default procedures.
Two short beeps
CMOS damaged.
CMOS checksum error or CMOS battery loss occurs.
Chapter 4
47
Checkpoints
A checkpoint is either a byte or word value output to I/O port 80h.The BIOS outputs checkpoints throughout
bootblock and Power-On Self Test (POST) to indicate the task the system is currently executing. Checkpoint
sare very useful in aiding software developers or technicians in debugging problems that occur during the preboot process.
Viewing BIOS checkpoints
Viewing all checkpoints generated by the BIOS requires acheckpoint card, also referred to as a POST card or
POST diagnostic card. These are ISA or PCI add-in cards that show the value of I/O port 80h on a LED
display. Checkpoints may appear on the bottom right corner of the screen during POST. This display method
islimited, since it only displays checkpoints thatoccur after the video card has been activated.
Bootblock Initialization Code Checkpoints
The Bootblock initialization code sets up the chipset,memory, and other components before system memory is
available. The following table describes the type of checkpoints that may occur during the bootblock
initialization portion of the BIOS.
NOTE: Please note that checkpoints may differ between different platforms based on system
configuration.Checkpoints may change due to vendor requirements,system chipset or option ROMs
from add-in PCI devices.
Checkpoint
Description
Before D0
If boot block debugger is enabled, CPU cache-as-RAM functionality is enabled at this point.
Stack will be enabled from this point.
D0
Early Boot Strap Processor (BSP) initialization like microcode update, frequency and other
CPU critical initialization. Early chipset initialization is done.
D1
Early super I/O initialization is done including RTC and keyboard controller. Serial port is
enabled at this point if needed for debugging. NMI is disabled. Perform keyboard controller
BAT test. Save power-on CPUID value in scratch CMOS. Go to flat mode with 4GB limit and
GA20 enabled.
D2
Verify the boot block checksum. System will hang here if checksum is bad.
D3
Disable CACHE before memory detection. Execute full memory sizing module. If memory
sizing module not executed, start memory refresh and do memory sizing in Boot block code.
Do additional chipset initialization. Re-enable CACHE. Verify that flat mode is enabled.
D4
Test base 512KB memory. Adjust policies and cache first 8MB. Set stack.
D5
Bootblock code is copied from ROM to lower system memory and control is given to it. BIOS
now executes out of RAM. Copies compressed boot block code to memory in right
segments. Copies BIOS from ROM to RAM for faster access. Performs main BIOS
checksum and updates recovery status accordingly.
D6
Both key sequence and OEM specific method is checked to determine if BIOSrecovery is
forced. Main BIOS checksum is tested. If BIOS recovery is necessary,control flows to
checkpoint E0. See Bootblock Recovery Code Checkpoints sectionfor more information.
D7
Restore CPUID value back into register. The Bootblock-Runtime interface module is moved
to system memory and control is given to it. Determine whether to execute serial flash.
D8
The Runtime module is uncompressed into memory. CPUID information is stored in memory.
D9
Store the Uncompressed pointer for future use in PMM. Copying Main BIOS into memory.
