System Utilities
Phoenix BIOS Setup Utility
BIOS setup is a hardware configuration program built into the system's Basic Input/Output System (BIOS).
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 BIOS 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.
•
BIOS 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 PhoenixBIOS Setup Utility, make sure that you have saved all open files. The system
reboots immediately after you close the Setup.
NOTE: PhoenixBIOS Setup Utility will be simply referred to as "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.

System Disassembly
This chapter contains step-by-step procedures on how to disassemble the desktop computer for maintenance
and troubleshooting.
Disassembly Requirements
To disassemble the computer, you need the following tools:
•
Wrist grounding strap and conductive mat for preventing electrostatic discharge
•
Flat-blade screwdriver
•
Philips screwdriver
•
Hex screwdriver
•
Plastic flat-blade screwdriver
•
Plastic tweezers
NOTE: The screws for the different components vary in size. During the disassembly process, group the
screws with the corresponding components to avoid mismatch when putting back the components.

System Troubleshooting
This chapter provides instructions on how to troubleshoot system hardware problems.
Hardware Diagnostic Procedure
IMPORTANT:The diagnostic tests described in this chapter are only intended to test Acer products. Non-Acer
products, prototype cards, or modified options can give false errors and invalid system
responses.
1.
Obtain the failing symptoms in as much detail as possible.
2.
Verify the symptoms by attempting to recreate the failure by running the diagnostic tests or repeating the
same operation.
3.
Refer to the table below to determine which corrective action to perform.

If the system will power on, skip this section. Refer to System External Inspection.
If the system will not power on, do the following:
q
q
Check if the power cable is properly connected to the system and AC source.
Check if the voltage selector switch is set to the correct voltage setting.
System External Inspection
1.
Inspect the LED indicators on the front panel, which can indicate the malfunction. For the LED locations
and description of their behaviour, see “System LED Indicators” on page 7.
2.
Make sure that air flow is not blocked.
3.
Make sure nothing in the system is making contact that could short out power.
4.
If the problem is not evident, continue with System Internal Inspection.
System Internal Inspection
1.
Turn off the system and all the peripherals connected to it.
2.
Unplug the power cord from the power outlets.
3.
Unplug the power cord from the system.
4.
Unplug all peripheral cables from the system.
5.
Place the system unit on a flat, stable surface.
6.
Remove the system covers.
7.
Verify that components are properly seated.
8.
Verify that all cable connectors inside the system are firmly and correctly attached to their appropriate
connectors.
9.
Verify that all components are Acer-qualified and supported.
10. Replace the system covers.
11. Power on the system.
12. If the problem with the system is not evident, you can try viewing the POST messages and BIOS event
logs during the system startup.

POST Error and Beep Codes
NOTE: Perform the FRU replacement or actions in the sequence shown in FRU/Action column, if the FRU
replacement does not solve the problem, put the original part back in the computer. Do not replace a
non-defective FRU.
The error messages in the following table indicate the BIOS signals on the screen and the error symptoms
classified by functions. If the symptom is not included on the list, please refer to “Undetermined Problems”.
NOTE: Most of the error messages occur during POST. Some of them display information about a hardware
device, e.g., the amount of memory installed. Others may indicate a problem with a device, such as the
way it has been configured.
NOTE: If the system fails after you make changes in the BIOS Setup Utility menus, reset the computer, enter
Setup and install Setup defaults or correct the error.
