z J2 : This connector is to connect the audio signal to the sound card.
z J1 : This connector is to connect the power supply for the slim CDROM.
z CON2 : This connector is to connect the IDE interface to the
motherboard.
z JP1 : This jumper is for master/slave select of the slim CD-ROM. For
different brand of the slim CD-ROM, The master /slave selection
method is different, so you have to check with the supplier how to set
the slim CD-ROM to the slave device. Because if you installed the
hard disk with the slim CD-ROM together with the same IDE cable
that you have to set the slim CD-ROM to the slave condition.
Choose your slim CD-ROM vender and set the slim CD-ROM to the slave
condition. Connects all the cables to J1, J2 and CON2 connectors.
Step1. Installing the slim CD-ROM mounting bracket by screw in
the 2 screws, on the HDD/FDD/CD-ROM holding bracket.

Chapter 6 AWARD BIOS SETUP
6.1 BIOS Introduction
The Award BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) installed in your computer system’s
ROM supports Intel Pentium 4 processors. The BIOS provides critical low-level
support for a standard device such as disk drives, serial ports and parallel ports. It
also adds virus and password protection as well as special support for detailed finetuning of the chipset controlling the entire system.
6.2 BIOS Setup
The Award BIOS provides a Setup utility program for specifying the system
configurations and settings. The BIOS ROM of the system stores the Setup utility.
When you turn on the computer, the Award BIOS is immediately activated.
Pressing the <Del> key immediately allows you to enter the Setup utility. If you are
a little bit late pressing the <Del> key, POST (Power On Self Test) will continue
with its test routines, thus preventing you from invoking the Setup. If you still wish
to enter Setup, restart the system by pressing the ”Reset” button or simultaneously
pressing the <Ctrl>, <Alt> and <Delete> keys. You can also restart by turning the
system Off and back On again. The following message will appear on the screen:
Press <DEL> to Enter Setup
In general, you press the arrow keys to highlight items, <Enter> to select, the
10
<PgUp> and <PgDn> keys to change entries, <F1> for help and <Esc> to quit.
When you enter the Setup utility, the Main Menu screen will appear on the screen.
The Main Menu allows you to select from various setup functions and exit choices.

The section below the setup items of the Main Menu displays the control keys for
this menu. At the bottom of the Main Menu just below the control keys section,
there is another section which displays information on the currently highlighted
item in the list.
Note:
If the system cannot boot after making and saving system changes
with Setup, the Award BIOS supports an override to the CMOS
settings that resets your system to its default.
11
Warning: It is strongly recommended that you avoid making any changes to
the chipset defaults. These defaults have been carefully chosen by
both Award and your system manufacturer to provide the absolute
maximum performance and reliability. Changing the defaults could
cause the system to become unstable and crash in some cases.
6.3 Standard CMOS Setup
“Standard CMOS Setup” choice allows you to record some basic hardware
configurations in your computer system and set the system clock and error handling.
If the board is already installed in a working system, you will not need to select this
option. You will need to run the Standard CMOS option, however, if you change
your system hardware configurations, the onboard battery fails, or the configuration
stored in the CMOS memory was lost or damaged.
