Introduction
Features
Watchdog Timer
The Watchdog Timer function allows your application to regularly “clear” the system at the set time interval. If the system hangs or fails to function, it will reset
at the set time interval so that your system will continue to operate.
CompactFlash
The system board is equipped with the CompactFlashTM socket for inserting a
CompactFlashTM card. CompactFlashTM card is a small removable mass storage
device designed with flash technology - a non-volatile storage solution that does
not require a battery to retain data indefinitely. The CompactFlashTM technology
is widely used in products such as portable and desktop computers, digital cameras, handheld data collection scanners, PDAs, Pocket PCs, handy terminals and
personal communicators.
DDR2
DDR2 is a higher performance DDR technology whose data transfer rate delivers
bandwidth of 4.3 GB per second and beyond. That is twice the speed of the conventional DDR without increasing its power consumption. DDR2 SDRAM modules
work at 1.8V supply compared to 2.6V memory voltage for DDR modules. DDR2
also incorporates new innovations such as the On-Die Termination (ODT) as well
as larger 4-bit pre-fetch against DDR which fetches 2 bits per clock cycle.
Integrated Graphics
The integrated Intel Gen3.5 graphics engine delivers an excellent video and 3D
graphics for large display applications. Graphics interfaces such as VGA, DVI and
LVDS support multiple graphics display options.
S3 Graphics
The S3 Graphics Chrome 435 ULP provides hardware acceleration for all leading
video standards including H.264, VC-1, MPEG-2, WMV-HD, and AVS, for a stunning HD movie experience. It enables complete multimedia solution of real-time
rendering capabilities for life-like visualization of 3D graphics and images for
an enhanced game experience and 3D application look-and-feel, along with full
1080p dual-stream (PiP) playback. Graphics interfaces such as DVI and HDMI
support multiple graphics display options.
DVI
DVI (Digital Visual Interface) is a form of video interface technology made to
maximize the quality of flat panel LCD monitors and modern video graphics
cards. Data is transmitted using the TMDS (Transition Minimized Differential Signaling) protocol, providing a digital signal from the PC’s graphics subsystem to
the display.
12
Introduction
1
LVDS
The Low-Voltage Differential Signaling (LVDS) interface allows the Intel Graphics
Media Adapter to communicate directly to the flat-panel display. The LVDS interface supports pixel color depths of 18 bits.
HDMI
HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is a compact audio/video connector
interface for transmitting uncompressed digital streams. It delivers multi-channel
audio and uncompressed digital video signals for full HD 1080p visuals through a
single cable. Connect a LCD monitor or digital TV that has the HDMI port.
PCI Express
PCI Express is a high bandwidth I/O infrastructure that possesses the ability to
scale speeds by forming multiple lanes. The x1 PCI Express lane supports transfer rate of 2.5 Gigabytes (250MBbps) per second which is nearly 4 times faster
than the traditional PCI.
Audio
The Realtek ALC262 audio codec provides 2-channel High Definition audio output.
S/PDIF
S/PDIF is a standard audio file transfer format that transfers digital audio signals to a device without having to be converted first to an analog format. This
prevents the quality of the audio signal from degrading whenever it is converted
to analog. S/PDIF is usually found on digital audio equipment such as a DAT
machine or audio processing device. The S/PDIF connector on the system board
sends surround sound and 3D audio signal outputs to amplifiers and speakers
and to digital recording devices like CD recorders.
Serial ATA
Serial ATA is a storage interface that is compliant with SATA 1.0a specification.
With speed of up to 3GB/s, it improves hard drive performance faster than the
standard parallel ATA whose data transfer rate is 100MB/s.
Gigabit LAN
The Realtek RTL8111DL PCI Express Gigabit controllers support up to 1Gbps data
transmission.
USB
The system board supports USB 2.0 and USB 1.1 ports. USB 1.1 supports 12Mb/
second bandwidth while USB 2.0 supports 480Mb/second bandwidth providing a
marked improvement in device transfer speeds between your computer and a
wide range of simultaneously accessible external Plug and Play peripherals.

Introduction
Wake-On-LAN
This feature allows the network to remotely wake up a Soft Power Down (SoftOff) PC. It is supported via the onboard LAN port or via a PCI LAN card that uses
the PCI PME (Power Management Event) signal. However, if your system is in the
Suspend mode, you can power-on the system only through an IRQ or DMA interrupt.
Important:
The 5V_standby power source of your power supply must support
≥720mA.
Wake-On-PS/2
This function allows you to use the PS/2 keyboard or PS/2 mouse to power-on
the system.
Important:
The 5V_standby power source of your power supply must support
≥720mA.
Wake-On-USB
This function allows you to use a USB keyboard or USB mouse to wake up a system from the S3 (STR - Suspend To RAM) state.
Important:
If you are using the Wake-On-USB Keyboard/Mouse function for 2 USB
ports, the 5V_standby power source of your power supply must support
≥1.5A. For 3 or more USB ports, the 5V_standby power source of your
power supply must support ≥2A.
RTC Timer
The RTC installed on the system board allows your system to automatically power-on on the set date and time.
14
Introduction
1
ACPI STR
The system board is designed to meet the ACPI (Advanced Configuration and
Power Interface) specification. ACPI has energy saving features that enables PCs
to implement Power Management and Plug-and-Play with operating systems that
support OS Direct Power Management. ACPI when enabled in the Power Management Setup will allow you to use the Suspend to RAM function.
With the Suspend to RAM function enabled, you can power-off the system at
once by pressing the power button or selecting “Standby” when you shut down
Windows® without having to go through the sometimes tiresome process of
closing files, applications and operating system. This is because the system is
capable of storing all programs and data files during the entire operating session
into RAM (Random Access Memory) when it powers-off. The operating session will
resume exactly where you left off the next time you power-on the system.
Important:
The 5V_standby power source of your power supply must support
≥720mA.
Power Failure Recovery
When power returns after an AC power failure, you may choose to either poweron the system manually or let the system power-on automatically.

BIOS Setup
Chapter 3 - BIOS Setup
Overview
The BIOS is a program that takes care of the basic level of communication between the CPU and peripherals. It contains codes for various advanced features
found in this system board. The BIOS allows you to configure the system and
save the configuration in a battery-backed CMOS so that the data retains even
when the power is off. In general, the information stored in the CMOS RAM of
the EEPROM will stay unchanged unless a configuration change has been made
such as a hard drive replaced or a device added.
It is possible that the CMOS battery will fail causing CMOS data loss. If this happens, you need to install a new CMOS battery and reconfigure the BIOS settings.
Note:
The BIOS is constantly updated to improve the performance of the system board; therefore the BIOS screens in this chapter may not appear
the same as the actual one. These screens are for reference purpose
only.
Default Configuration
Most of the configuration settings are either predefined according to the Load Optimal Defaults settings which are stored in the BIOS or are automatically detected
and configured without requiring any actions. There are a few settings that you
may need to change depending on your system configuration.
Entering the BIOS Setup Utility
The BIOS Setup Utility can only be operated from the keyboard and all commands are keyboard commands. The commands are available at the right side of
each setup screen.
The BIOS Setup Utility does not require an operating system to run. After you
power up the system, the BIOS message appears on the screen and the memory
count begins. After the memory test, the message “Press DEL to run setup” will
appear on the screen. If the message disappears before you respond, restart the
system or press the “Reset” button. You may also restart the system by pressing
the <Ctrl> <Alt> and <Del> keys simultaneously.

Type
Selects the type of IDE drive connected to the system.
PIO Mode
Selects the data transfer mode. PIO means Programmed Input/Output. Rather than have the BIOS issue a series of commands to effect a transfer to or
from the disk drive, PIO allows the BIOS to tell the controller what it wants
and then let the controller and the CPU perform the complete task by themselves. Your system supports five modes, 0 (default) to 4, which primarily
differ in timing. When Auto is selected, the BIOS will select the best available
mode after checking your drive.
Auto The BIOS will automatically set the system according to your hard disk
drive’s timing.
Mode 0-4
You can select a mode that matches your hard disk drive’s timing. Caution:
Do not use the wrong setting or you will have drive errors.

This feature is used to select the length of time each PCI device will control the
bus before another takes over. The larger the value, the longer the PCI device
can retain control of the bus. Since each access to the bus comes with an initial
delay before any transaction can be made, low values for the PCI Latency Timer
will reduce the effectiveness of the PCI bandwidth while higher values will improve it.

Appendix C - System Error Message
When the BIOS encounters an error that requires the user to correct something,
either a beep code will sound or a message will be displayed in a box in the middle of the screen and the message, PRESS F1 TO CONTINUE, CTRL-ALT-ESC or
DEL TO ENTER SETUP, will be shown in the information box at the bottom. Enter
Setup to correct the error.
Error Messages
One or more of the following messages may be displayed if the BIOS detects an
error during the POST. This list indicates the error messages for all Awards BIOSes:
CMOS BATTERY HAS FAILED
The CMOS battery is no longer functional. It should be replaced.
Important
Danger of explosion if battery incorrectly replaced. Replace only with the
same or equivalent type recommended by the manufacturer. Dispose of
used batteries according to the battery manufacturer’s instructions.
CMOS CHECKSUM ERROR
Checksum of CMOS is incorrect. This can indicate that CMOS has become corrupt. This error may have been caused by a weak battery. Check the battery and
replace if necessary.
DISPLAY SWITCH IS SET INCORRECTLY

Troubleshooting Checklist
This chapter of the manual is designed to help you with problems that you may
encounter with your personal computer. To efficiently troubleshoot your system,
treat each problem individually. This is to ensure an accurate diagnosis of the
problem in case a problem has multiple causes.
Some of the most common things to check when you encounter problems while
using your system are listed below.
1. The power switch of each peripheral device is turned on.
2. All cables and power cords are tightly connected.
3. The electrical outlet to which your peripheral devices are connected is working. Test the outlet by plugging in a lamp or other electrical device.
4. The monitor is turned on.
5. The display’s brightness and contrast controls are adjusted properly.
6. All add-in boards in the expansion slots are seated securely.
7. Any add-in board you have installed is designed for your system and is set
up correctly.
Monitor/Display
If the display screen remains dark after the system is turned on:
1. Make sure that the monitor’s power switch is on.
2. Check that one end of the monitor’s power cord is properly attached to the
monitor and the other end is plugged into a working AC outlet. If necessary,
try another outlet.
3. Check that the video input cable is properly attached to the monitor and the
system’s display adapter.
4. Adjust the brightness of the display by turning the monitor’s brightness control knob.

Troubleshooting
The picture seems to be constantly moving.
1. The monitor has lost its vertical sync. Adjust the monitor’s vertical sync.
2. Move away any objects, such as another monitor or fan, that may be creating
a magnetic field around the display.
3. Make sure your video card’s output frequencies are supported by this monitor.
The screen seems to be constantly wavering.
1. If the monitor is close to another monitor, the adjacent monitor may need
to be turned off. Fluorescent lights adjacent to the monitor may also cause
screen wavering.
Power Supply
When the computer is turned on, nothing happens.
1. Check that one end of the AC power cord is plugged into a live outlet and the
other end properly plugged into the back of the system.
2. Make sure that the voltage selection switch on the back panel is set for the
correct type of voltage you are using.
3. The power cord may have a “short” or “open”. Inspect the cord and install a
new one if necessary.
Hard Drive
Hard disk failure.
1. Make sure the correct drive type for the hard disk drive has been entered in
the BIOS.
2. If the system is configured with two hard drives, make sure the bootable
(first) hard drive is configured as Master and the second hard drive is configured as Slave. The master hard drive must have an active/bootable partition.
Excessively long formatting period.
If your hard drive takes an excessively long period of time to format, it is likely a
cable connection problem. However, if your hard drive has a large capacity, it will
take a longer time to format.

Serial Port
The serial device (modem, printer) doesn’t output anything or is outputting garbled characters.
1. Make sure that the serial device’s power is turned on and that the device is
on-line.
2. Verify that the device is plugged into the correct serial port on the rear of the
computer.
3. Verify that the attached serial device works by attaching it to a serial port
that is working and configured correctly. If the serial device does not work,
either the cable or the serial device has a problem. If the serial device works,
the problem may be due to the onboard I/O or the address setting.
4. Make sure the COM settings and I/O address are configured correctly.
Keyboard
Nothing happens when a key on the keyboard was pressed.
1. Make sure the keyboard is properly connected.
2. Make sure there are no objects resting on the keyboard and that no keys are
pressed during the booting process.
System Board
1. Make sure the add-in card is seated securely in the expansion slot. If the
add-in card is loose, power off the system, re-install the card and power up
the system.
2. Check the jumper settings to ensure that the jumpers are properly set.
3. Verify that all memory modules are seated securely into the memory sockets.
4. Make sure the memory modules are in the correct locations.
5. If the board fails to function, place the board on a flat surface and seat all
socketed components. Gently press each component into the socket.
6. If you made changes to the BIOS settings, re-enter setup and load the BIOS
defaults.
