BIOS Introduction
The Award BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) installed in your computer system’s ROM supports Intel
processors. The BIOS provides critical low-level support for standards devices, such as disk drives,
serial ports and parallel ports. It also adds virus and password protection as well as special support for
fine-tuning the chipset controlling the entire system.
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 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 to press 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 the
pressing the “Reset” button or simultaneously pressing the <Ctrl>, <Alt> and <Del> keys. You can
also restart by turning the system off and back on again. The following message will appear on the
APC-3x15 User Manual
38
screen:
Press <DEL> to Enter Setup
In general, you press the arrow keys to highlight items, <Enter> to select, the <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 key section there is another section displaying
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 reset your system to its default.
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.
APC-3x15 User Manual
39
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 motherboard 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.
At the bottom of the menu are the control keys for use on this menu. If you need any help in each item
field, you can press the <F1> key. It will display the relevant information to help you. The memory
display at the lower right-hand side of the menu is read-only. It will adjust automatically according to

Advanced BIOS Features
This section allows you to configure and improve your system and allows you to set up some system
features according to your preference.
CPU Feature
Press Enter to configure the settings relevant to CPU Feature. Hard Disk Boot Priority
With the field, there is the option to choose, aside from the hard disks connected, “Bootable add-in
Cards” which refers to other external devices.
Virus Warning
If this option is enabled, an alarm message will be displayed when trying to write on the boot sector or
on the partition table on the disk, which is typical of the virus.
CPU L1 and L2 Cache
Cache memory is additional memory that is faster than conventional DRAM (system memory). CPUs
from 486-type on up contain internal cache memory,and most, but not all, modern PCs have additional
(external) cache memory. When the CPU requests data, the system transfers the requested data from
the main DRAM into cache memory, for even faster access by the CPU. These allow you to enable
(speed up memory access) or disable the cache function.
APC-3x15 User Manual
43
Quick Power On Self Test
When enabled, this field speeds up the Power On Self Test (POST) after the system is turned on. If it
is set to Enabled, BIOS will skip some items.
First/Second/Third Boot Device
These fields determine the drive that the system searches first for an operating system. The options
available include Floppy, LS120, Hard Disk, CDROM, ZIP100, USB-Floppy, USB-ZIP, USB-CDROM,
LAN and Disable.
Boot Other Device
These fields allow the system to search for an OS from other devices other than the ones selected in
the First/Second/Third Boot Device.
Swap Floppy Drive
This item allows you to determine whether or not to enable Swap Floppy Drive. When enabled, the
BIOS swaps floppy drive assignments so that Drive A becomes Drive B, and Drive B becomes Drive A.
By default, this field is set to Disabled.
Boot Up Floppy Seek
This feature controls whether the BIOS checks for a floppy drive while booting up. If it cannot detect
one (either due to improper configuration or its absence), it will flash an error message.
Boot Up NumLock Status
This allows you to activate the NumLock function after you power up the system.
Gate A20 Option
This field allows you to select how Gate A20 is worked. Gate A20 is a device used to address memory
above 1 MB.
Typematic Rate Setting
When disabled, continually holding down a key on your keyboard will generate only one instance.
When enabled, you can set the two typematic controls listed next. By default, this field is set to
Disabled.
Typematic Rate (Chars/Sec)
When the typematic rate is enabled, the system registers repeated keystrokes speeds. Settings are
from 6 to 30 characters per second.
Typematic Delay (Msec)
When the typematic rate is enabled, this item allows you to set the time interval for displaying the first
and second characters. By default, this item is set to 250msec.
APC-3x15 User Manual

Security Option
This field allows you to limit access to the System and Setup. The default value is Setup. When you
select System, the system prompts for the User Password every time you boot up. When you select
Setup, the system always boots up and prompts for the Supervisor Password only when the Setup
utility is called up.
APIC Mode
APIC stands for Advanced Programmable Interrupt Controller. The default setting is Enabled.
MPS Version Control for OS
This option is specifies the MPS (Multiprocessor Specification) version for your operating system.
MPS version 1.4 added extended configuration tables to improve support for multiple PCI bus
configurations and improve future expandability. The default setting is 1.4.
OS Select for DRAM > 64MB
This option allows the system to access greater than 64MB of DRAMmemory when used with OS/2
that depends on certain BIOS calls to access memory. The default setting is Non-OS/2.
Report No FDD For WIN 95
If you are using Windows 95/98 without a floppy disk drive, select Enabled to release IRQ6. This is
required to pass Windows 95/98's SCT test. You should also disable the Onboard FDC Controller in
the Integrated Peripherals screen when there's no floppy drive in the system. If you set this feature to
Disabled, the BIOS will not report the missing floppy drive to Win95/98.
Small Logo (EPA) Show
The EPA logo appears at the right side of the monitor screen when the system is boot up. The default
setting is Enabled.
