CONNECTING THE POWER SUPPLY
The VIA EPIA-SN Mini-ITX mainboard supports a conventional ATX power
supply for the power system. Before inserting the power supply connector,
always make sure that all components are installed correctly to ensure that
no damage will be caused.
ATX 20-Pin Power Connector
To connect the power supply, make sure the power plug is inserted in the
proper orientation and the pins are aligned. Then push down the plug firmly
into the connector.

JUMPERS
The mainboard provides jumpers for setting some mainboard functions. This
section will explain how to change the settings of the mainboard functions
using the jumpers.
Clear CMOS Connector: CLEAR_CMOS
The onboard CMOS RAM stores system configuration data and has an
onboard battery power supply. To reset the CMOS settings, set the jumper
on pins 1 and 2 while the system is off. Return the jumper to pins 2 and 3
afterwards.
Setting the jumper while the system is on will damage the
mainboard.

BIOS Setup
This option is for setting a password for entering BIOS Setup.
When a
password has been set, a password prompt will be displayed whenever BIOS
Setup is run. This prevents an unauthorized person from changing any part
of your system configuration.
There are two types of passwords you can set. A supervisor password and
user password.
When a supervisor password is used, the BIOS Setup
program can be accessed and the BIOS settings can be changed. When a
user password is used, the BIOS Setup program can be accessed but the
BIOS settings cannot be changed.
To set the password, type the password (up to eight characters in length)
and press <Enter>.
The password typed now will clear any previously set
password from CMOS memory. The new password will need to be reentered
to be confirmed. To cancel the process press <Esc>.
To disable the password, press <Enter> when prompted to enter a new
password. A message will show up to confirm disabling the password. To
cancel the process press <Esc>.
Additionally, when a password is enabled, the BIOS can be set to request the
password each time the system is booted. This would prevent unauthorized
use of the system. See “Security Option” in the “Advanced BIOS Features”
section for more details.
