Preface
Before using this information and the product it supports, please read the following general information.
1.
This Service Guide provides you with all technical information relating to the BASIC CONFIGURATION
decided for Acer's "global" product offering. To better fit local market requirements and enhance product
competitiveness, your regional office MAY have decided to extend the functionality of a machine (e.g.
add-on card, modem, or extra memory capability). These LOCALIZED FEATURES will NOT be covered
in this generic service guide. In such cases, please contact your regional offices or the responsible
personnel/channel to provide you with further technical details.
2.
Please note WHEN ORDERING FRU PARTS, that you should check the most up-to-date information
available on your regional web or channel. If, for whatever reason, a part number change is made, it will
not be noted in the printed Service Guide. For ACER-AUTHORIZED SERVICE PROVIDERS, your Acer
office may have a DIFFERENT part number code to those given in the FRU list of this printed Service
Guide. You MUST use the list provided by your regional Acer office to order FRU parts for repair and
service of customer machines.

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/flat. 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.

Entering Setup

NOTE: If the message disappears before you respond and you still wish to enter Setup, restart the system by
turning it OFF and On. You may also restart the system by simultaneously pressing [Ctrl+Alt+Delete].
The Setup Utility main menu then appears:

Base Memory
Refers to the option of memory that is available

an address space od 1MB, but the top 384KB
(called high memory) is reserved for system use.
This leaves 640 KB of conventional memory.
Everything above 1MB is either extended or
extended memory.
The BIOS POST will determine
the amount of base (or
conventional) memory installed
in the sytem.
Extended Memory
Memory above and beyond the standard 1MB of
base memory that DOS supports. Extended
memory is only available in PCs with an Intel
80286 or later microprocessor. Extended
memory is not configured in any special manner
and is therefore unavailable to most DOS
programs. However, MS Windows and OS/2 can
use extended memory.
The BIOS determines how much

method. This function is only valid for systems
using an ATX power supply.
Instant-Off: The power button
functions as a normal poweron/-off button.
When “Instand Off” is selected, press the power
switch to immediately turn off power. When
“Delay 4 Sec” is selected, press and hold the
power button for four seconds to turn off power.
Delay 4 Sec.: When you
press the power button, the
computer enters the suspend/

pressed for more than four
seconds, the computer will be
turned off.
This option is used to specify the CPU speed (at

This option allows you to enable/disable the

Enabled
When the motherboard’s clock generator pulses,
the extreme values (spikes) of the pulses creates
EMI (Electromagnetic Interference). The spread
Spectrum function reduces the EMI generated by
modulating the pulses so that the spikes of the
pulses are reduced to flatter curves. If you do not
have any EMI problem, leave the setting at
Disabled for optimal system stability and
performance. But if you are plagued by EMI,
setting to Enabled for EMI reduction. Remember
to disable Spread Spectrum if you are
overlocking because even a slight jitter can
introduce a temporary boost in clockspeed which
may just cause your overlock ed processor to
lock up.

the password being disabled. Once the password is disabled, the system will boot and you can enter BIOS
Setup freely.
Supervisor Password has higher priority than User Password. You can use Supervisor Password when

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
T
Direct Memory Access (DMA) controller

POST Check Points
When POST executes a task, it uses a series of preset numbers called check point 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 Acer common tasks carried out by POST. A unique check point number
represents each task.

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 Sympton List”.
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.
NOTE: 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.

Jumper and Connector Information
Checking Jumper Settings
This section explains how to set jumpers for correct configuration of the mainboard.
Setting Jumpers
Use the mainboard jumpers to set system configuration options. Jumpers with more than one pir are
numbered. When setting the jumpers, ensure that the jumper caps are placed on the correct pins.
Jumper
Description
The illustrations below show a 2-pin
jumper. When the jumper cap is
placed on both pins, the jumper is
SHORT. If you remove the jumper
cap, or place the jumper cap on just
one pin, the jumper is OPEN.
