Chapter 2. Setting up your computer
Before you begin, be sure to read “Safety Information” on page vi. Use these
instructions to set up your computer.
Selecting a location for your computer
Make sure you have an adequate number of properly grounded electrical
outlets for all devices. Select a location for the computer where it will remain
dry. Leave about 50 mm (2 in.) of space around the computer for proper air
circulation.
Arranging your workspace
Arrange both the equipment and your work area to suit you. Light sources, air
circulation, and the location of electrical outlets can affect how you arrange
your workspace.
Comfort
The following guidelines will help you decide what working position suits you
best. Choose a chair to reduce fatigue from sitting in the same position for long
periods. The backrest and seat should adjust independently and provide good
support. The seat should have a curved front to relieve pressure on the thighs.
Adjust the seat so that your thighs are parallel to the floor and your feet are
either flat on the floor, or on a footrest.
When using the keyboard, keep your forearms parallel to the floor and your
wrists in a neutral, comfortable position. Try to keep a light touch on the
keyboard, and your hands and fingers relaxed. Change the angle of the
keyboard for maximum comfort by adjusting the position of the keyboard feet.
4
Adjust the monitor so that the top of the screen is at, or slightly below, eye
level. Place the monitor at a comfortable viewing distance, usually 51 to 61 cm
(20 to 24 in.), and position it so that you can view it without having to twist
your body.
Glare and lighting
Position the monitor to minimize glare and reflections from overhead lights,
windows, and other light sources. Place the monitor at right angles to light
sources whenever possible. Reduce overhead lighting, if necessary, by turning
off lights or using lower wattage bulbs. If you install the monitor near a
window, use curtains or blinds to block the sunlight. You might have to adjust
the Brightness and Contrast controls on the monitor as the lighting changes
throughout the day.
Where it is impossible to avoid reflections or to adjust the lighting, place an
antiglare filter over the screen. However, these filters might affect the clarity of
the screen image; try them only after you have exhausted other methods of
reducing glare.
Dust compounds problems associated with glare. Clean your monitor screen
periodically using a soft cloth moistened with a nonabrasive, liquid glass
cleaner.
Air circulation
Your computer and monitor produce heat. The computer fan pulls in fresh air
and forces out hot air. The monitor lets hot air escape through vents. Blocking
the air vents can cause overheating, possibly resulting in malfunction or
damage. Place the computer and monitor so that nothing blocks the air vents;
usually 51 mm (2 in.) of air space is sufficient. Also, make sure the vented air
is not blowing on someone else.
Electrical outlets and cable lengths
The location of electrical outlets and the length of device power cords and
cables might determine the final placement of your computer.
When arranging your workspace:
Avoid the use of extension cords. Whenever possible, plug the computer
power cord directly into an electrical outlet.
Keep power cords and cables neatly routed away from walkways and other
areas where they might be accidentally dislodged.For more information about
power cords, see “Power cord notice” on page 81.

Connect Power cords
The voltage selector switch should be preset for your area; however, contact
your local power company if you are uncertain of the voltage for your area.
• If the voltage supply range in your area is 100-127V, set the voltage selector
switch so you can see 115V or 115.
• If the voltage supply range in your area is 200-230V, set the voltage selector
switch so you can see 230V or 230.
Connect the power cords to the computer and monitor first, and then connect
the power cords to the electrical outlets. For clarity, only the power cords are
shown in this picture.
Note: If your computer has a power switch on the back of the computer, press
it to the On position (1=ON).

Chapter 3: Operating and caring for
your Computer
This chapter provides information to help you in the day-to-day use and care
of your computer.
Starting your computer
See “Switches Indicators and Connectors” on page 6 for an illustration
indicating the location of the power buttons on your computer. If your
computer has a power switch on the back, ensure this is
set to position I = On.
What you see and hear when you start up your computer depends on the
startup settings selected in the Configuration/Setup Utility program.
Note: Other selections also might change what is displayed when the
computer starts up.
When you turn on your computer, you are prompted with the following
options:
Press TAB to show POST screen, DEL to enter SETUP
Note: This prompt appears when you first turn on your computer and is gone
very quickly.
For instructions to enter the Configuration/Setup Utility program, see
page 18.
Changing monitor settings
To get the best possible image on your screen and to reduce flicker, you might
need to reset the resolution and refresh rate of your monitor. You can view and
change monitor settings through your operating system using the instructions
provided in the README files on the Software Selections CD that comes with
your computer. Refer to your operating system documentation for further
information on monitor settings.
Attention
Before you change any monitor settings, be sure to review the
information that comes with your monitor. Using a resolution or refresh
rate that is not supported by your monitor might cause the screen to
become unreadable and could damage the monitor. The information that
11
comes with your monitor usually includes the resolutions and refresh
rates that the monitor supports. If you need additional information,
contact the manufacturer of the monitor.
To minimize screen flicker and jitter, set your monitor for the highest
noninterlaced refresh rate that the monitor supports. If your monitor complies
with the VESA Display Data Channel (DDC) standard, it is probably already
set to the highest refresh rate that the monitor and video controller can
support. If you are not sure if your monitor is DDC-compliant, refer to the
documentation provided with the monitor.
Using audio features
Your computer comes with an integrated audio controller to which external
speakers can be connected
Procedures for recording and playing back sound vary by operating system.
Refer to your operating system documentation for information and instructions.
The audio connectors in your computer are 3.5 mm (1/8-in.) mini-jacks. A
description of the connectors follows. (For the location of the connectors, refer
to “External connector color coding” on page 9.)
Line/Headphone Out:

such as stereo-powered speakers with built-in amplifiers, headphones,
multimedia keyboards, or the Audio Line-In jack on a stereo system.
Audio Line In:
This jack is used to accept audio signals from external devices, such as line
output from a stereo or television system, or a musical instrument, into the
computer sound system.
Microphone:
This jack is used to connect a microphone to your computer when you want to
record voice or other sounds on the hard disk.
Note: If you experience interference or speaker feedback while recording, try
reducing the microphone recording volume (gain).
Joystick/MIDI:
This port is used to connect a joystick for playing games or a MIDI device to
interface with digital musical and sound production equipment.
12
Using diskettes
You can use 3.5-inch diskettes in the diskette drive of your computer.
The information that follows will help you use 3.5-inch diskettes.
Handling and storing diskettes
Inside the protective diskette case is a flexible disk with a magnetic coating.
This disk can be damaged by heat, dust, a magnetic field, or even a
fingerprint. Use the following guidelines when handling and storing diskettes:
–
Data is stored on the magnetic surface of the diskette. This surface is
protected by a plastic cover. If the cover is damaged, do not use the
diskette. A damaged diskette might damage the diskette drive.
–
A protective slide on the top of a 3.5-inch diskette covers part of the
magnetic surface. The diskette drive moves this slide to read data from or
write data to the diskette. Do not move this slide because fingerprints and
dust can cause loss of data.
–
Never touch the magnetic disk itself.
–
Keep diskettes away from magnets or devices that create a strong
magnetic field, such as electric motors and generators. Diskettes are
sensitive to magnets found in television sets, telephones, stereo speakers,
and other such items. A magnetic field can erase the data on your
diskettes. Do not set diskettes on the monitor or use magnets to attach
notes to your computer.
–
Do not store diskettes at high temperatures, low temperatures, or in direct
sunlight. Temperatures ranging from 4° to 53°C (39° to 127°F) are
acceptable for 3.5-inch diskettes. Keep diskettes away from heat. The
plastic outer covering might warp, damaging the diskette.
Inserting and removing diskettes
To insert a 3.5-inch diskette, hold the diskette with the label facing up and
insert the end with the protective slide first. Push the diskette into the diskette
drive until the diskette clicks into place.
To remove the diskette, press the eject button and slide the diskette out of the
drive. Do not remove the diskette while the in-use light is on.
13
Using a CD-ROM drive
Some models have a preinstalled CD-ROM drive. CD-ROM drives can play
back or read from a CD, but cannot write information to it. CD-ROM drives
use industry standard, 12 cm (4.75-inch) CDs.
Follow these guidelines when using a CD-ROM drive:
Do not place the drive where there is:
–
–
–
–
–
–
–
–
High temperature
High humidity
Excessive dust
Excessive vibration or sudden shock
An inclined surface
Direct sunlight
Do not insert any object other than a CD into the drive.
Before moving the computer, remove the CD from the drive.
Handling a CD
When handling a CD, follow these guidelines:
–
–
–
–
–
–
–
Hold the CD by its edges. Do not touch the surface of the side that is not
labeled.
To remove dust or fingerprints, wipe the CD with a clean, soft cloth from
the center to the outside. Wiping the CD in a circular direction might cause
loss of data.
Do not write or stick paper on the CD.
Do not scratch or mark the CD.
Do not place or store the CD in direct sunlight.
Do not use benzene, thinners, or other cleaners to clean the disk.
Do not drop or bend the CD.
Loading a CD
To load a CD into a CD-ROM drive:
1. Press the Eject/Load button. The tray slides out of the drive. (Do not
manually force the tray open.)
Note: If you have a small form factor desktop computer, the CD-ROM
drive disk tray slides partway out of the drive. Manually pull the
tray the rest of the way out.
2. Place the CD in the tray with the label facing up.
Note: If you have a small form factor desktop computer, press the disk
down until it clicks into place and is held by the spring-loaded
holders.
14
3. Close the tray by pressing the Eject/Load button or by gently pushing the
tray forward. When the tray is closed, the indicator light on the front of the
drive will activate to indicate that the drive is in use.
4. To eject the CD, press the Eject/Load button. When the tray slides out,
carefully remove the disk.
5. Close the tray by pressing the Eject/Load button or by gently pushing the
tray forward.
Note: If the tray does not slide out of the drive when you press the Eject/Load
button, insert the pointed end of a large paper clip into the
emergency-eject hole located on the front of the CD-ROM drive.
Updating system programs
System programs are the basic layer of software built into your computer. They
include the power-on self-test (POST), the basic input/output system (BIOS)
code, and the Configuration/Setup Utility program. POST is a set of tests and
procedures that is performed each time you turn on your computer. BIOS is a
layer of software that translates instructions from other layers of software into
electrical signals that the computer hardware can understand. You can use the
Configuration/Setup Utility program to view and change the configuration and
setup of your computer.
Your computer system board has a module called electrically erasable
programmable read-only memory (EEPROM, also referred to as flash
memory). You can easily update POST, BIOS, and the Configuration/Setup
Utility program by starting your computer using a flash update diskette.
IBM might make changes and enhancements to the system programs. When
updates are released, they are available as downloadable files on the World

Taking care of your computer
This section provides guidelines for the proper handling and care of your
computer.
Basics
Here are some basic points about keeping your computer functioning properly:
•
•
•
•
•
Keep your computer in a clean, dry environment. Make sure it rests on a
flat, sturdy surface.
Do not place items on top of the monitor or cover any vents in the monitor
or computer. These vents provide air flow to keep your computer from
overheating.
Keep food and drinks away from all parts of your computer. Food particles
and spills might make the keyboard and mouse sticky and unusable.
Do not get the power switches or other controls wet. Moisture can damage
these parts and cause an electrical hazard.
Always disconnect a power cord by grasping the plug, not the cord.
Cleaning your computer
It is a good practice to clean your computer periodically to protect the surfaces
and ensure trouble-free operation.
CAUTION:
Be sure to turn off the computer and monitor power switches before
cleaning the computer and monitor screen.
Computer and keyboard
Use only mild cleaning solutions and a damp cloth to clean the painted
surfaces of the computer.
Monitor screen
Do not use abrasive cleaners when cleaning the surface of the monitor screen.
The screen surface is easily scratched, so avoid touching it with pens, pencil
points, and erasers. To clean the screen surface, wipe it gently with a soft, dry
cloth, or blow on the screen to remove grit and other loose particles. Then use a
soft cloth moistened with a nonabrasive liquid glass cleaner.
Mouse
If the pointer on the screen does not move smoothly with the mouse, you
might need to clean the mouse. To clean your mouse:
1. Turn off the computer.
2. Disconnect the mouse cable from the computer.
3. Turn the mouse upside down. Unlock the retainer on the bottom of the
16
mouse by moving it in the direction indicated by the arrow on the retainer.
4. Turn the mouse right-side up, and the retainer and ball will drop out.
5. Wash the ball in warm, soapy water and dry it well.
6. Using a damp cloth, wipe the outside of the mouse and the retainer. Be
sure to wipe the rollers inside the mouse.
7. Insert the ball and retainer. Lock the retainer by moving it in the opposite
direction of the arrow.
8. Reconnect the mouse cable to the computer.
Moving your computer
Take the following precautions before moving your computer.
1. Back up all files and data from the hard disk.
Operating systems can vary in the way they perform backup procedures.
Refer to your operating system documentation for information about
software backup.
2. Remove all media (diskettes, compact discs, tapes, and so on) from the
drives.
3. Turn off the computer and all attached devices. Your hard disk drive
automatically parks the read/write heads in a nondata area. This process
prevents damage to the hard disk.
4. Unplug the power cords from electrical outlets.
5. Note where you have attached your cables to the rear of the computer; then
remove them.
6. If you saved the original shipping cartons and packing materials, use them
to pack the units. If you are using different cartons, cushion the computer
components to avoid damage.
17
Chapter 4 :Using the
Configuration/Setup Utility
This chapter explains how to use and modify the BIOS setup utility that is
stored on the System Board. The setup utility stores data about the System
Board components and the configuration of devices that are connected to it.
This information is used to test and initialize components at start-up time and to
make sure everything runs properly when the system is operating.
The setup utility is installed with a set of default values. You will probably have
to make changes to the setup utility whenever you add new components to your
system such as new disk drives. We recommend that you do not change some
of the timing values in the setup, as this can have an adverse affect on the
operation of your computer.
Starting the Setup Utility
You can only start the setup utility shortly after the computer has been turned
on. A prompt appears on the computer display which says “Press DEL to run
Setup”. When you see this prompt, press the Delete key, and the system will
start the setup utility and display the main menu of the utility.
Using the Setup Utility
When you start setup, the main menu appears. The main menu of the setup
utility shows a list of the options that are available. A highlight shows which
option is currently selected. You can use the cursor arrow keys to move the
highlight to other options. When an option is highlighted, you can execute the
option by pressing the Enter key.
Some options lead to dialog boxes which ask you verify that that you wish to
execute that option. You usually answer these dialogs by typing Y for yes and N
for no. Some options lead to dialog boxes which ask for more information.
Setting passwords have this kind of dialog box.
18
Some options (marked with a triangle) lead to tables of items that usually have
a value on the right side. The value of the first item is highlighted, and you can
use the cursor arrow keys to select any of the other values in the table of items.
When an item is highlighted, you can change the value by pressing the PageUp
or PageDown keys to scroll through the available values.
When you are in the main menu, you can exit the utility by pressing the Escape
key. You can save the current selections and exit the utility by pressing the F10
key. When you are in one of the options that displays a dialog box, you can
return to the main menu by pressing the Escape key.
When you are in an option that displays a table of items, you can return to the
main menu by pressing the Escape key. For some items, you can display a
help message by pressing the F2 key. You can display a general help screen by
pressing F1. Press F5 to discard any changes you have made and return all
items to the value that they held when the setup utility was started. Press F6 to
load the displayed items with a standard list of fail-safe values. Press F7 to load
the displayed items with a list of optimized default values.
Note: Screenshots are for reference only and may not reflect your machines
specification.

Power Management Setup Option
This option displays items that let you control the system power
management. Operating systems take care of much of the power
management. This mainboard supports ACPI (advanced configuration
and power interface). The system has various power saving modes
including powering down the hard disk, turning off the video, suspending
to RAM, and a software power down that allows the system to be
automatically resumed by certain events.
Power Management Timeouts
The power-saving modes can be controlled by timeouts. If the system is
inactive for a time, the timeouts begin counting. If the inactivity
continues so that the timeout period elapses, the system enters a powersaving mode. If any item in the list of Reload Global Timer Events is
Enabled, then any activity on that item will reset the timeout counters to
zero.
Wake Up Calls
If the system is suspended, or has been powered down by software, it
can be resumed by a wake up call that is generated by incoming traffic
to a modem, a LAN card, a PCI card, or a fixed alarm on the system
realtime clock,
30
ACPI Suspend Type
Default: S1 (POS)
Use this item to define how your system suspends. In the default, S1(POS), the
suspend mode is equivalent to a software power down. If you select S3 (STR),
the suspend mode is a suspend to RAM – the system shuts down with the
exception of a refresh current to the system memory.
Power Management
Default: Define
This item acts like a master switch for the power-saving modes and hard disk
timeouts. If this item is set to Max Saving, power-saving modes occur after a
short timeout. If this item is set to Min Saving, power-saving modes occur after
a longer timeout. If the item is set to User Define, you can insert your own
timeouts for the power-saving modes.
Video Off Method
Default: DPMS
This item defines how the video is powered down to save power. As a default,
this is set to DPMS (display power management software).
Video Off In Suspend
Default: Yes
This option defines if the video is powered down when the system is put into
suspend mode.
Suspend Type
Default: Stop Grant
If this item is set to the default "Stop Grant", the CPU will go into the Idle Mode.
MODEM Use IRQ
Default: 3
If you want an incoming call on a modem to automatically resume the system
from a power-saving mode, use this item to specify the interrupt request line
(IRQ) that is used by the modem. You might have to connect the fax/modem to
a mainboard Wake On Modem connector for this feature to work.
31
Suspend Mode
Default: Disabled
If you have selected User Define for the Power Management item, you can set
this item to a timeouts from 1 Min to 1 Hour. The system will go into the powersaving suspend mode if the timeout passes without any system activity.
HDD Power Down
Default: Disabled
If you have selected User Define for the Power Management item, you can set
this item to a selection of timeouts from 1 to 15 minutes. The hard disk drive
will power down if the selected timeout passes without any activity on the hard
disk.
Soft-Off by PWR-BTTN
Default: Delay 4 Seconds
Under ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power management Interface) you
can create a software power down. In a software power down, the system can
be resumed by Wake Up Alarms. This item lets you install a software power
down that is controlled by the normal power button on your system. If the item
is set to Instant-Off, then the power button causes a software power down. If
the item is set to Delay 4 Sec. Then you have to hold the power button down for
four seconds to cause a software power down.
Wake Up by PCI Card
Default: Disabled
If you enable this item, it allows activity on an add-in card in one of the PCI
slots to resume the system from a power-saving mode.
Power On by Ring
Default: Disabled
If this item is enabled, it allows the system to resume from a software
powerdown or a power-saving mode whenever there is an incoming call to an
installed fax/modem. You might have to connect the fax/modem to a mainboard
Wake On Modem connector for this feature to work.
Wake Up On LAN
Default: Enabled
If this item is enabled, it allows the system to resume from a software
powerdown or a power-saving mode whenever there is an incoming traffic to a
network (LAN) adapter. You might have to connect the LAN card to a
mainboard Wake On LAN connector for this feature to work.

Chapter 5: Installing options
You can expand the capabilities of your computer by adding memory, drives, or
adapters. When adding an option, use these instructions along with the
instructions that come with the option.
Attention
•
Before you install or remove any option, read the “Safety
Information” on page vi. These precautions and guidelines will
help you work safely.
•
The presence of 5 V standby power might result in damage to your
hardware unless you disconnect the power cord from the electrical
outlet before opening the computer cover.
Handling static-sensitive devices
Static electricity, although harmless to you, can seriously damage computer
components and options.
When you add an option, do not open the static-protective package
containing the option until you are instructed to do so.
When you handle options and other computer components, take these
precautions to avoid static electricity damage:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Limit your movement. Movement can cause static electricity to build
up around you.
Always handle components carefully. Handle adapters and memory
modules by the edges. Never touch any exposed circuitry.
Prevent others from touching components.
When you install a new option, touch the static-protective package
containing the option to a metal expansion-slot cover or other
unpainted metal surface on the computer for at least two seconds. This
reduces static electricity in the package and your body.
When possible, remove the option and install it directly in the
computer without setting the option down. When this is not possible,
place the static-protective package that the option came in on a smooth,
level surface and place the option on it.
Do not place the option on the computer cover or other metal surface.
39
Available options
The following are some available options:
•
System memory, called dual in-line memory modules (DIMMs)
•
Peripheral component interconnect (PCI) adapters
Internal drives
CD-ROM (on some models)
Hard disk
Diskette drives and other removable media drives.
For the latest information about available options, see the following World
Wide Web pages:

Tools required
To install or remove some options in your computer, you will need a flat-blade
screwdriver. Additional tools might be needed for certain options. See the
instructions that come with the option.
Run ConfigSafe (or a similar application) to take a snapshot of your computer
configuration before installing an optional device. Using this snapshot, you can
view and compare the changes in the computer configuration after you install
an option. Also, if you have problems configuring the option after it is installed,
ConfigSafe allows you to restore the configuration to the previous settings.
When you started your computer for the first time, ConfigSafe took a snapshot
of the initial configuration of your computer. You might be able to use this
snapshot to restore the configuration to the initial settings. ConfigSafe is a part
of the preinstalled software in your computer.

Working with memory
You can add memory to your computer to increase system performance. Your
computer has two connectors for installing memory modules that provide up to
a maximum of 256MB of system SDRAM.
Your computer uses dual inline memory modules (DIMMs). The IBM-installed
DIMMs that come with your computer are unbuffered, synchronous dynamic
random access memory (SDRAM).
When installing or replacing DIMMs, the following rules apply:
•
Fill each system memory connector sequentially, starting at DIMM 0.
•
Use only 168pin 3.3 V, 100 MHz, unbuffered, SDRAM DIMMs
•
Use only 32 to 256MB DIMMs in any combination of supported SDRAM
DIMMs.
Note: To locate the memory connectors on the system board, see the
system board label inside your computer.
Before you begin:
•
Read “Safety information” on page vi and “Handling static-sensitive
devices” on page 39.
•
Read the instructions that come with the new system memory.
•
Turn off the computer and all other connected devices.
•
Disconnect all cables attached to the computer and remove the
computer cover see “Removing the cover” on page 41
45
To install a DIMM:
1. Remove the retaining screw from the adapter slot cover (if fitted)
2. Open the module retaining clips on the DIMM socket.
3. Make sure that the notches in the DIMM are properly aligned with the
connector. Push the DIMM straight down into the connector until the retaining
clips close.
4. Reinstall any adapters that you removed. See “working with adapters”
page 49.
5. Reinstall the power supply if you removed it.
46
Install a CD-ROM
This section describes how to install IDE devices such as a CD-ROM drive.
Note: Ribbon cable connectors are usually keyed so that they can only be
installed correctly on the device connector. If the connector is not keyed
make sure that you match the pin-1 side of the cable connector with the pin1 side of the device connector. Each connector has the pin-1 side clearly
marked. The pin-1 side of each ribbon cable is always marked with a
colored stripe on the cable.
About IDE Devices.Your System Board has a primary IDE channel interface
(IDE1) and a secondary IDE interface (IDE2). The System Board ships with one
IDE ribbon cable which supports one or two IDE devices. All IDE devices have
jumpers or switches that can be used to set the IDE device as MASTER or
SLAVE.
If you install two IDE devices on one cable, you must make sure that one device
is set to MASTER and the other device is set to SLAVE. The documentation of
your IDE device explains how to do this.
If you want to install more than two IDE devices, obtain a second IDE cable and
you can add two more devices to the secondary IDE channel. If there are two
devices on the cable, make one MASTER and one SLAVE.
Installing a CD-ROM Drive

IBM devices and the instructions to install them (README.TXT) are
located on the Product Recovery CDs, the Device Drivers and Diagnostics
CD or, for IBM Personal Computer models 2169,A20, A40, and A40p, in
the C:\IBMTOOLS\DRIVERS directory.
3. The latest device drivers are also available on the World Wide Web at
http://www.ibm.com/pc/support.
55
Troubleshooting
Note
If your computer does not start when you press the power switch, do
the following:
–
–
Make sure your computer and monitor are connected to working
electrical outlets.
Make sure all cables are securely connected to the correct locations.
If this does not correct the problem, have the computer serviced.
Computer problems can be caused by hardware, software, or user error (for
example, pressing the wrong key). You can use the diagnostic aids discussed in
this chapter to help you solve such problems yourself or gather helpful
information you can pass on to a service technician.
You can check the hardware by following the procedures in this chapter.
You can also use the diagnostic programs provided with your computer (see
“IBM Enhanced Diagnostics program” on page 65 for a description of these
programs).
If the hardware checks out, and you have not made a user error, you might
have a software problem. If you suspect that you have a software problem and
your computer comes with IBM-preinstalled software, see “IBM Enhanced
Diagnostics program” on page 65 for information about how to run the IBM
Enhanced diagnostics program provided by IBM. Also see the operating
system documentation supplied with your computer. If you have installed
software applications yourself, see the documentation supplied with the
software.
The following tools are available to diagnose hardware-related problems:
– Power-on self-test (POST)
– Error codes and messages
– IBM Enhanced Diagnostics program
56
Power-on self-test (POST)
Each time you turn on your computer, it performs a series of tests that
check the basic operation of the base computer. This series of tests is called
the power-on self-test (POST). POST does the following:
–
–
–
–
–
–
Checks basic system board operations
Checks the memory operation
Compares the current system configuration with that established by the
Configuration/Setup Utility program
Starts the video operation
Verifies that the diskette drives are working
Verifies that the hard disk drive and the CD-ROM drive are working
If Quick Power-On Self-Test is set to Disabled, numbers showing the amount of
memory being tested appear in the top-left corner of the screen until the total
amount of memory in the system is reached. Options for viewing the POST
screen and memory count or accessing the Configuration/Setup Utility program
appear in the lower-left corner of the screen at power on. Quick mode is the
default mode of operation.
Note: The amount of available memory shown might be somewhat less than
expected because of basic input/output system (BIOS) shadowing in random
access memory (RAM). If POST finishes without detecting any problems, the
first screen of your operating system or application program appears if you
have not set a power-on password.
If you have set a power-on password, a password prompt appears. You must
enter your password before the first screen of your operating system or
application program will appear.
If POST detects no problems, you will hear a single beep. If POST detects a
problem, you may hear multiple beeps or no beep. In most cases, an error code
appears on the screen, and in some cases a description of the error is
displayed beside the code. (Note that the screen will sometimes display multiple
error codes and descriptions.)
Diagnostic error codes and messages
Diagnostic codes and messages appear if a hardware problem is detected by
one of the IBM Enhanced Diagnostics test programs or if POST detects a
problem. Along with error codes, the messages present text information
that can be used to identify a failing part.
57
POST error
The computer might display more than one error message. Often, the first error
to occur causes subsequent errors. When using the POST message
information in this section, always begin by following the suggested action for
the first error message that appears on your computer screen.
Code description and action:
Floppy disk(s) fail (40)
Hard disk(s) Diagnosis fail
Primary master hard disk fail
Primary slave hard disk fail
Secondary master hard disk fail
Secondary slave hard disk fail
Keyboard is locked out - Unlock the key
Keyboard error or no keyboard present
Memory test fail
CMOS checksum error - Defaults loaded
CMOS battery failed
Diskette drive problems
Diskette drive in-use, light stays on, or the system
bypasses the diskette drive.
If there is a diskette in the drive, verify that:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
The diskette drive is enabled. Use the Configuration/Setup Utility program
to check this. For more information, see Chapter 4, “Using the
Configuration/Setup Utility program” on page 18.
The computer is checking for the diskette drive in the startup sequence.
Use Setup Utility program to verify this.
The diskette you are using is good and not damaged. Try inserting another
diskette if you have one.
The diskette is inserted correctly, with its label up and its metal shutter end
first in the drive.
The diskette contains the necessary files to start the computer (the diskette
must be startable).
The diskette drive cable is properly installed and securely connected.
There is no problem with your software program (see “Software problems”
on page 64).
If you cannot correct the problem, have the computer serviced.
58
Monitor Problems
General monitor problems.
Some IBM monitors have their own self-tests. If you suspect a problem with
our monitor, see the information supplied with the monitor for adjustment and
testing instructions.
If you cannot find the problem, check the other listings on monitor problems in
this section.
If you cannot correct the problem, have the computer serviced.
Wavy, unreadable, rolling, distorted, or jittery screen
images.
If the monitor self-tests show that the monitor is working properly, verify that:
1.The location of the monitor is appropriate. Magnetic fields around other
devices, such as transformers, appliances, fluorescent lights, and other
monitors might be causing the problem. To determine if the location is causing
the problem:
•

IBM Enhanced Diagnostics program
You can run the IBM Enhanced Diagnostics program from a hidden
partition of your hard disk where a copy of your preinstalled programs and
diagnostics programs is kept. You can also create an IBM Enhanced
Diagnostics diskette image from the service partition if your computer comes
with a preinstalled operating system. The user interface for running the
diagnostics utility programs is provided by WaterGate Software PC-Doctor.
The IBM Enhanced Diagnostics program will isolate your computer hardware
from software that was preinstalled (or that you have installed) on your hard
disk. The programs run independently of the operating system, and must be
run either from CD or diskette.
You can use this program to test the hardware components of your computer.
This method of testing is generally used when other methods are not accessible
or have not been successful in isolating a problem suspected to be hardware
related.
To start the IBM Enhanced Diagnostics program from the hidden partition, do
the following:
1. Turn off your computer and any attached devices.
2. Turn on all attached devices; then turn on your computer.
3. When you see To start the IBM Product Recovery Program,
press F11, press the F11 key. The Product Recovery Program will load.
4. Select System Utilities and press Enter
5. A new menu opens with the options for viewing system utilities:
•
Run Diagnostics
•

instructions on the screen.
Other diagnostic programs on the Software Selections CD
The Software Selections CD that comes with your computer also contains
diagnostic programs designed specifically for certain operating
environments (Windows 98). Because these versions work with the operating
system, they not only test the hardware, but also analyze certain software
components of your computer. They are especially useful in isolating problems
related to the operating system and device drivers.
Recovering from a POST/BIOS update failure
If power to your computer is interrupted while POST/BIOS is being
updated (flash update), your computer might not restart correctly. If this
happens, use the same procedure that is used to erase a lost or forgotten
password to recover from the failure. See “Erasing a lost or forgotten
password” on page 38.
Installing files from Option Diskettes
An optional device or adapter might come with a diskette. Diskettes that
are included in option packages usually contain files that the system needs
for recognizing and activating the options. Until you install the necessary
files, the new device or adapter might cause error messages.
If your optional device or adapter comes with a diskette, you might need to
install some configuration (.CFG) files or diagnostic (.EXE or .COM) files
from the diskette to your hard disk. See the documentation that comes
with the option to determine if you need to install files.

* Contact your place of purchase for warranty service information. Some IBM Machines
are eligible for on-site warranty service depending on the country where service is
performed.
** IBM will provide warranty service without charge for:
1. parts and labor during the first year of the warranty period
2. parts only, on an exchange basis, in the second and third years of the warranty period.
IBM will charge you for any labor it provides in performance of the repair or
replacement.
The IBM Warranty for Machines
IBM warrants that each Machine 1) is free from defects in materials and
workmanship and 2) conforms to IBM’s Official Published Specifications. The
warranty period for a Machine is a specified, fixed period commencing on its
Date of Installation. The date on your sales receipt is the Date of Installation,
unless IBM or your reseller informs you otherwise.
During the warranty period IBM or your reseller, if approved by IBM to
provide warranty service, will provide repair and exchange service for the
71
Machine, without charge, under the type of service designated for the Machine
and will manage and install engineering changes that apply to the Machine.
If a Machine does not function as warranted during the warranty period, and
IBM or your reseller are unable to either 1) make it do so or 2) replace it with
one that is at least functionally equivalent, you may return it to your place of
purchase and your money will be refunded. The replacement may not be new,
but will be in good working order.
Extent of Warranty
The warranty does not cover the repair or exchange of a Machine resulting
from misuse, accident, modification, unsuitable physical or operating
environment, improper maintenance by you, or failure caused by a product for
which IBM is not responsible. The warranty is voided by removal or alteration
of Machine or parts identification labels.
THESE WARRANTIES ARE YOUR EXCLUSIVE WARRANTIES AND
REPLACE ALL OTHER WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS, EXPRESS OR
IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED
WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS
FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THESE WARRANTIES GIVE YOU
SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS AND YOU MAY ALSO HAVE OTHER RIGHTS
WHICH VARY FROM JURISDICTION TO JURISDICTION. SOME
JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION
OF EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO THE ABOVE EXCLUSION
OR LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. IN THAT EVENT, SUCH
WARRANTIES ARE LIMITED IN DURATION TO THE WARRANTY
PERIOD. NO WARRANTIES APPLY AFTER THAT PERIOD.
Items Not Covered by Warranty
IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of a Machine.
Unless specified otherwise, IBM provides non-IBM machines WITHOUT
WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND.
Any technical or other support provided for a Machine under warranty, such
as assistance via telephone with “how-to” questions and those regarding
Machine set-up and installation, will be provided WITHOUT WARRANTIES
OF ANY KIND.
Warranty Service
To obtain warranty service for the Machine, contact your reseller or IBM. You
may be required to present proof of purchase.
72
IBM or your reseller provides certain types of repair and exchange service,
either at your location or at a service center, to keep Machines in, or restore
them to, conformance with their Specifications. IBM or your reseller will
inform you of the available types of service for a Machine based on its country
of installation. IBM may repair the failing Machine or exchange it at its
discretion.
When warranty service involves the exchange of a Machine or part, the item
IBM or your reseller replaces becomes its property and the replacement
becomes yours. You represent that all removed items are genuine and
unaltered. The replacement may not be new, but will be in good working order
and at least functionally equivalent to the item replaced. The replacement
assumes the warranty service status of the replaced item.
Any feature, conversion, or upgrade IBM or your reseller services must be
installed on a Machine which is 1) for certain Machines, the designated,
serial-numbered Machine and 2) at an engineering-change level compatible
with the feature, conversion, or upgrade. Many features, conversions, or
upgrades involve the removal of parts and their return to IBM. A part that
replaces a removed part will assume the warranty service status of the
removed part.
Before IBM or your reseller exchanges a Machine or part, you agree to remove
all features, parts, options, alterations, and attachments not under warranty
service.
You also agree to
1. ensure that the Machine is free of any legal obligations or restrictions that
prevent its exchange;
2. obtain authorization from the owner to have IBM or your reseller service a
Machine that you do not own; and
3. where applicable, before service is provided
a. follow the problem determination, problem analysis, and service request
procedures that IBM or your reseller provides,
b. secure all programs, data, and funds contained in a Machine,
c. provide IBM or your reseller with sufficient, free, and safe access to
your facilities to permit them to fulfill their obligations, and
d. inform IBM or your reseller of changes in a Machine’s location.
IBM is responsible for loss of, or damage to, your Machine while it is 1) in
IBM’s possession or 2) in transit in those cases where IBM is responsible for
the transportation charges.
73
Neither IBM nor your reseller is responsible for any of your confidential,
proprietary or personal information contained in a Machine which you return
to IBM or your reseller for any reason. You should remove all such information
from the Machine prior to its return.
Production Status
Each IBM Machine is manufactured from new parts, or new and used parts. In
some cases, the Machine may not be new and may have been previously
installed. Regardless of the Machine’s production status, IBM’s appropriate
warranty terms apply.
Limitation of Liability
Circumstances may arise where, because of a default on IBM’s part or other
liability, you are entitled to recover damages from IBM. In each such instance,
regardless of the basis on which you are entitled to claim damages from IBM
(including fundamental breach, negligence, misrepresentation, or other contract
or tort claim), IBM is liable for no more than
1. damages for bodily injury (including death) and damage to real property
and tangible personal property; and
2. the amount of any other actual direct damages, up to the greater of U.S.
$100,000 (or equivalent in local currency) or the charges (if recurring, 12
months’ charges apply) for the Machine that is the subject of the claim.
This limit also applies to IBM’s suppliers and your reseller. It is the
maximum for which IBM, its suppliers, and your reseller are collectively
responsible.
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES IS IBM LIABLE FOR ANY OF THE
FOLLOWING: 1) THIRD-PARTY CLAIMS AGAINST YOU FOR DAMAGES
(OTHER THAN THOSE UNDER THE FIRST ITEM LISTED ABOVE); 2)
LOSS OF, OR DAMAGE TO, YOUR RECORDS OR DATA; OR 3) SPECIAL,
INCIDENTAL, OR INDIRECT DAMAGES OR FOR ANY ECONOMIC
CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING LOST PROFITS OR
SAVINGS), EVEN IF IBM, ITS SUPPLIERS OR YOUR RESELLER IS
INFORMED OF THEIR POSSIBILITY. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT
ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR
CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR
EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

Appendix 2
Jumper Settings
Check all the mainboard jumpers to ensure that the board is configured
correctly.
How to Set Jumpers
OPEN
SHORT
A jumper consists of two or more pins mounted on the
mainboard. Some jumpers might be arranged in a
series with each pair of pins numbered differently.
Jumpers are used to change the electronic circuits on
the mainboard. When a jumper cap is placed on two
jumper pins, the pins are SHORT. If the jumper cap is
removed (or placed on just a single pin) the pins are
OPEN.
This illustration shows 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.
This illustration shows a 3-pin jumper. The jumper cap is placed on pins 2 and
3, so this jumper setting is SHORT PINS 2-3.
This illustration shows the same 3-pin jumper. The jumper cap is placed on
pins 1 and 2, so this jumper setting is SHORT PINS 1-2.
For location of the jumpers see “Mainboard Guide”
pages 43 and 44
83
In this manual, all the jumper illustrations clearly show the pin numbers. When
you are setting the jumpers, make sure that the jumper caps are placed on the
correct pins to select the function or feature that you want to enable or disable
