Product Warranty (2 years)
Advantech warrants to you, the original purchaser, that each of its products will be
free from defects in materials and workmanship for two years from the date of purchase.
This warranty does not apply to any products which have been repaired or altered by
persons other than repair personnel authorized by Advantech, or which have been
subject to misuse, abuse, accident or improper installation. Advantech assumes no
liability under the terms of this warranty as a consequence of such events.
Because of Advantech’s high quality-control standards and rigorous testing, most of
our customers never need to use our repair service. If an Advantech product is defective, it will be repaired or replaced at no charge during the warranty period. For outof-warranty repairs, you will be billed according to the cost of replacement materials,
service time and freight. Please consult your dealer for more details.
If you think you have a defective product, follow these steps:
1. Collect all the information about the problem encountered. (For example, CPU
speed, Advantech products used, other hardware and software used, etc.) Note
anything abnormal and list any onscreen messages you get when the problem
occurs.
2. Call your dealer and describe the problem. Please have your manual, product,
and any helpful information readily available.
3. If your product is diagnosed as defective, obtain an RMA (return merchandize
authorization) number from your dealer. This allows us to process your return
more quickly.
4. Carefully pack the defective product, a fully-completed Repair and Replacement
Order Card and a photocopy proof of purchase date (such as your sales receipt)
in a shippable container. A product returned without proof of the purchase date
is not eligible for warranty service.
5. Write the RMA number visibly on the outside of the package and ship it prepaid
to your dealer.

BIOS Settings
This chapter introduces how to
set BIOS configuration data.
3.1 BIOS Introduction
AMIBIOS has been integrated into many motherboards for over two decades. With
the AMIBIOS Setup program, you can modify BIOS settings and control various system features. This chapter describes the basic navigation of the ARK-DS762 series
BIOS setup screens.
AMIBIOS's ROM has a built-in setup program that allows users to modify the basic
system configuration. This information is stored in battery-backed CMOS so it retains
the setup information when the power is turned off.
3.2 Main Setup
When you first enter the BIOS Setup Utility, you will enter the Main setup screen. You
can always return to the Main setup screen by selecting the Main tab.
The Main BIOS setup screen has two main frames. The left frame displays all the
options that can be configured. Options in blue can be configured, and grayed-out
options cannot be configured instead. The right frame displays the key legend.
The key legend in the top is an area reserved for a text message. When an option is
selected in the left frame, it is highlighted in white. Often a text message will accompany it.
3.2.1 System Time / System Date
Use this option to change the system time and date. Highlight System Time or System Date using the <Arrow> keys. Enter new values through the keyboard. Press the
<Tab> key or the <Arrow> keys to move between fields. The date must be entered in
MM/DD/YY format. The time must be entered in HH:MM:SS format.

Select the Advanced tab from the ARK-DS762 setup screen to enter the Advanced
BIOS Setup screen. You can select any of the items in the left frame of the screen,
such as CPU configuration, to go to the sub menu for that item. You can display an
Advanced BIOS Setup option by highlighting it using the <Arrow> keys. All Advanced
BIOS Setup options are described in this section. The Advanced BIOS Setup
screens are shown below. The sub menus are described on the following pages.

A.1 SUSIAccess® - Remote Device Management
Advantech has designed an industrial remote management program to provide our
customers with remote device monitoring, desktop connection, system recovery and
system protection features that will help customers to access multiple clients through
a single console for remote device management. SUSIAccess will immediately recognize sudden equipment malfunctions and provide real-time equipment maintenance, as well as system security protection mechanisms that significantly improve
maintenance efficiency. Plus, an active update feature will improve system stability
and reliability.



Remote Monitoring: Monitors system status of remote devices, including hard
disk temperature, hard drive health, network connection, system / CPU temperatures, system / CPU fan speeds and system voltages. Support for email alarms
and function logs so that managers can regularly keep on top of their remote
devices.
Remote On/Off: Control on/off times according to each device, or pre-set time
cycles to switch a device on/off. For example, a public service machine can be
set for 6:00 am start and 23:00 pm shutdown. Ideal for night time and energy
saving applications.
Remote KVM: Controls the desktops of remote devices. IT technicians or maintenance engineers can manipulate a remote computer directly for maintenance
and updates. Pre-configure settings without the need to enter individual IP, username and passwords—providing significant reduction in service times required.


System Recovery: Controls system backup and restore of remote devices, or
pre-set system backup types and restore times. For example, a bank ATM
machine is set for system backup every Monday at 1:00 am. If a system
crashes, you can immediately gain access via the remote console, and perform
a system recovery so that the equipment maintains normal operation. (System
recovery programs use Acronis True Image backup and restore technology
which must be installed before use.)
System Protection: Controls remote equipment, system protection and monitoring, and security. If a machine is threatened by a virus, the program will automatically detect and prevent intrusions.
*System Saver program integrates McAfee’s Embedded Security System Protection program which must be installed before use.
