SMI Suspend Switch Lead (EXTSMI)
This allows the user to manually place the system into a
suspend mode of Green mode. System activity will be instantly
decreased to save electricity and expand the life of certain
components when the system is not in use. This 2-pin
connector (see the figure) connects to the case-mounted
suspend switch. If you do not have a switch for the connector,
you may use the "Turbo Switch” instead since it does not have
a function. SMI is activated when it detects a short. It may require
one or two pushes depending on the position of the switch.
Wake-up can be controlled by settings in the BIOS but the
keyboard will always allow wake-up (the SMI Suspend Switch
Lead cannot wake-up the system). If you w an t t o u s e t h i s
connector, the "Suspend Switch" in the Power Management
Setup of the BIOS SOFTWARE section should be on the default
setting of Enable.

1.5 Serial and Parallel Interface Ports
This system equipped with two serial ports and one parallel
port. Both types of interface ports will be explained in this
chapter.
The Serial Interfaces: COM1/COM2
The serial interface port is sometimes refered to as an RS232 port or an asynchronous communication port. Mice,
printers, modems and other peripheral devices can be
connected to a serial port. The serial port can also be used to
connect your computer system. If you wish to transfer the
contents of your hard disk to another system it can be
accomplished by using each machine’s serial port.
COM1/COM2
COM2
1
The serial port on this system has one 9-pin connector. Some
older computer systems and peripherals used to be equipped
with only a 25-pin connector. If you need to connect your 9-pin
serial port to an older 25-pin serial port, you can purchase a 9to-25 pin adapter.

Parallel Interface Port
Unlike serial ports, parallel interface ports have been standardized
and should not present any difficulty interfacing peripherals to your
system. Sometimes called a Centronics port, the parallel port is
almost exclusively used with printers. The parallel port on your
system has a 25-pin, DB 25 connector(see the picture below).

1.8.2 How to install a DDR Module
184 Pin DIMM Socket
1. The DDR socket has a “Plastic Safety Tab” and the
DDRmemory module has an asymmetrical notch”, so the DDR
memory module can only fit into the slot in one direction.
2. Push the tabs out. Insert the DDR memory modules i n t o
the socket at a 90-degree angle then push down vertically so
that it will fit into place.
3. The Mounting Holes and plastic tabs should fit over the edge
and hold the DDR memory modules in place.

Introduction
This manual discussed the Award Setup program built into
the ROM BIOS. The Setup program allows the user to modify
the basic system configuration. This special information is
then stored in battery-backed RAM so that it retains the setup
information when the power is turned off.
The Award BIOS installed in your computer system’s ROM
(Read Only Memory)is a custom version of an industry
standard BIOS. This means that it supports Intel P4
processors input/output system. The BIOS provides critical
low-level support for standard devices such as disk drives
and serial and parallel ports.
The rest of this manual is intended to guide you through the
process of configuring your system using Setup.
Plug and Play Support
This AWARD BIOS supports the Plug and Play Version 1.0A
specification. ESCD(Extended System Configuration Data)
write is supported.
EPA Green PC Support
This AWARD BIOS supports Version 1.03 of the EPA Green PC
specification.

2.4 Advanced Chipset Features
This section allows you to configure the system based on the specific
features of the installed chipset. This chipset manages bus speeds
and access to system memory resources, such as DRAM and
external cache. It also coordinates communications of the PCI bus.
It must be stated that these items should never need to be altered.
The default settings have been chosen because they provide the
best operating conditions for your system. The only time you might
consider making any changes would be if you discovered that data
was lost while using your system.

2.7 PnP/PCI Configurations
This section describes configuring the PCI bus system. PCI or
Personal Computer Interconnect,is a system which allows I/O
devices to operate at speeds nearing the speed of the CPU itself
uses when communicating with its own special components. This
section covers some very technical items and it is strongly
recommended that only experienced uses should make any changes
to the default settings.

BIOS Setup
Reset Configuration Data
The system BIOS supports the PnP feature so the system
needs to record which resource is assigned and proceeds
resources from conflict. Every peripheral device has a node,
which is called ESCD. This node records which resources
are assigned to it. The system needs to record and update
ESCD to the memory locations. These locations (4K) are
reserved at the system BIOS. If Disabled (Default)is chosen,
the system’s ESCD will update only when the new
configuration varies from the last one. If Enabled is chosen,
the system is forced to update ESCDs and then is
automatically set to the “Disabled” mode.

By Choosing “Auto” (default), the system BIOS will detect the

sure that there are no IRQ/DMA and I/O port conflicts.
The Choices: Auto(ESCD) (default),Manual.

BIOS Setup
PCI / VGA Palette Snoop
Choose Disabled or Enabled. Some graphic controllers
which are not VGA compatible take the output from a VGA
controller and map it to their display as a way to provide boot
information and VGA compatibility.
However, the color information coming from the VGA
controller is drawn from the palette table inside the VGA
controller to generate the proper colors, and the graphic
controller needs to know what is in the palette of the VGA
controller. To do this, the non-VGA graphic controller watches
for the write access to the VGA palette and registers the snoop
data. In PCI based systems, the Write Access to the palette
will not show up on the ISA bus if the PCI VGA controller
responds to the Write.
In this case, the PCI VGA controller should not respond to
the Write, it should only snoop the data and permit the access
to be forwarded to the ISA bus. The non-VGA ISA graphic
controller can then snoop the data on the ISA bus. Unless
you have the above situation, you should disable this option.
