Safety Precautions
Before getting started, please read the following important safety
precautions.
1.
2.
3.
4.
The eBOX530-820-FL does not come equipped with an
operating system. An operating system must be loaded first
before installing any software into the computer.
Be sure to ground yourself to prevent static charge when
installing the internal components. Use a grounding wrist
strap and place all electronic components in any staticshielded devices. Most electronic components are sensitive
to static electrical charge.
Disconnect the power cord from the eBOX530-820-FL
before making any installation. Be sure both the system and
the external devices are turned OFF. Sudden surge of power
could ruin sensitive components. Make sure the eBOX530820-FL is properly grounded.
Make sure the voltage of the power source is correct before
connecting the equipment to the power outlet.
5.
Turn OFF the system power before cleaning. Clean the
system using a cloth only. Do not spray any liquid cleaner
directly onto the screen.
6.
Do not leave this equipment in an uncontrolled environment
where the storage temperature is below -20℃ or above 60℃.
It may damage the equipment.
7.
Do not open the system’s back cover. If opening the cover
for maintenance is a must, only a trained technician is
allowed to do so. Integrated circuits on computer boards are
sensitive to static electricity. To avoid damaging chips from
electrostatic discharge, observe the following precautions:
„
Before handling a board or integrated circuit, touch an
unpainted portion of the system unit chassis for a few
seconds. This will help to discharge any static electricity
on your body.
„
When handling boards and components, wear a wristgrounding strap, available from most electronic
component stores.

General Cleaning Tips
You may need the following precautions before you begin to clean the
computer. When you clean any single part or component for the
computer, please read and understand the details below fully.
When you need to clean the device, please rub it with a piece of dry
cloth.
1. Be cautious of the tiny removable components when you use
a vacuum cleaner to absorb the dirt on the floor.
2. Turn the system off before you start to clean up the
component or computer.
3. Never drop the components inside the computer or get circuit
board damp or wet.
4. Be cautious of all kinds of cleaning solvents or chemicals
when you use it for the sake of cleaning. Some individuals
may be allergic to the ingredients.
5. Try not to put any food, drink or cigarette around the
computer.
Cleaning Tools:
Although many companies have created products to help improve the
process of cleaning your computer and peripherals users can also
use household items to clean their computers and peripherals. Below
is a listing of items you may need or want to use while cleaning your
computer or computer peripherals.
Keep in mind that some components in your computer may only be
able to be cleaned using a product designed for cleaning that
component, if this is the case it will be mentioned in the cleaning.
z
Cloth: A piece of cloth is the best tool to use when rubbing up
iv

a component. Although paper towels or tissues can be used
on most hardware as well, we still recommend you to rub it
with a piece of cloth.
Water or rubbing alcohol: You may moisten a piece of cloth a
bit with some water or rubbing alcohol and rub it on the
computer. Unknown solvents may be harmful to the plastics
parts.
Vacuum cleaner: Absorb the dust, dirt, hair, cigarette
particles, and other particles out of a computer can be one of
the best methods of cleaning a computer. Over time these
items can restrict the airflow in a computer and cause
circuitry to corrode.
Cotton swabs: Cotton swaps moistened with rubbing alcohol
or water are excellent tools for wiping hard to reach areas in
your keyboard, mouse, and other locations.
Foam swabs: Whenever possible it is better to use lint free
swabs such as foam swabs.
Note We strongly recommended that you should shut down
the system before you start to clean any single
components.
Please follow the steps below:
1. Close all application programs
2. Close operating software
3. Turn off power switch
4. Remove all device
5. Pull out power cable
v
Scrap Computer Recycling
If the computer equipments need the maintenance or are beyond
repair, we strongly recommended that you should inform your
AXIOMTEK distributor as soon as possible for the suitable solution.
For the computers that are no longer useful or no longer working well,
please contact your AXIOMTEK distributor for recycling and we will
make the proper arrangement.

PHOENIX-AWARD BIOS UTILITY
The Phoenix-Award BIOS provides users with a built-in Setup program
to modify basic system configuration. All configured parameters are
stored in a battery-backed-up RAM (CMOS RAM) to save the Setup
information whenever the power is turned off.

Entering Setup
There are two ways to enter the Setup program. You may either turn
ON the computer and press <Del> immediately, or press the <Del>
and/or <Ctrl>, <Alt>, and <Esc> keys simultaneously when the
following message appears at the bottom of the screen during POST
(Power on Self Test).
TO ENTER SETUP PRESS DEL KEY
If the message disappears before you respond and you still want to
enter Setup, please restart the system to try it again. Turning the
system power OFF and ON, pressing the “RESET” button on the
system case or simultaneously pressing <Ctrl>, <Alt>, and <Del> keys
can restart the system. If you do not press keys at the right time and
the system doesn’t boot, an error message will pop out to prompt you
the following information:

This section describes configuring the PCI bus system. PCI, or
Personal Computer Interconnect, is a system which allows I/O devices
to operate at speeds nearing the speed the CPU itself uses when

some very technical items and it is strongly recommended that only
experienced users should make any changes to the default settings.

IRQ Resources
When resources are controlled manually, assign each system
interrupt to one of the following types in accordance with the type of
devices using the interrupt:
1. Legacy ISA Devices compliant with the original PC AT bus
specification, requiring a specific interrupt (such as IRQ4 for serial port
1).
2. PCI/ISA PnP Devices compliant with the Plug and Play standard,
whether designed for PCI or ISA bus architecture.
The default value is “PCI/ISA PnP”.

PCI/VGA Palette Snoop
Some non-standard VGA display cards may not show colors

PASSWORD DISABLED
When a password is enabled, you have to type it every time you enter
the Setup. It prevents any unauthorized persons from changing your
system configuration.
Additionally, when a password is enabled, you can also require the
BIOS to request a password every time the system reboots. This would
prevent unauthorized use of your computer.
You decide when the password is required for the BIOS Features
