BIOS SETUP
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 a standard device such as disk drives, serial
ports and parallel ports. It also adds virus and password protection as
well as special support for detailed fine-tuning of 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 turn 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 pressing 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 pressing the ”Reset” button or simultaneously
pressing the <Ctrl>, <Alt> and <Delete> keys. You can also restart by
turning the system Off and back On again. The following message will
appear on the 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 keys section, there is another section, which displays 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 resets 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.

BIOS SETUP
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.

communicate with the controller and CPU directly.
The system supports five modes, numbered from 0 (default) to 4, which
primarily differ in timing. When Auto is selected, the BIOS will select
the best available mode.
IDE Primary/Secondary Master/Slave UDMA
These fields allow your system to improve disk I/O throughput to
33Mb/sec with the Ultra DMA/33 feature. The options are Auto and

Modem Use IRQ
This field sets the IRQ used by the Modem. By default, the setting is 3.
Suspend Mode
When enabled, and after the set time of system inactivity, all devices
except the CPU will be shut off.
HDD Power Down
When enabled, and after the set time of system inactivity, the hard disk
drive will be powered down while all other devices remain active.
Soft-Off by PWRBTN
This field defines the power-off mode when using an ATX power
supply. The Instant Off mode allows powering off immediately upon
pressing the power button. In the Delay 4 Sec mode, the system powers
off when the power button is pressed for more than four seconds or
enters the suspend mode when pressed for less than 4 seconds.

BIOS SETUP
CPU THRM-Throttling
When the system enters Doze mode, the CPU clock runs only part of the
time. You may select the percent of time that the clock runs.
Wake up by PCI Card
By default, this field is Disabled.
Power On by Ring
This field enables or disables the power on of the system through the
modem connected to the serial port or LAN.
Resume by Alarm
This field enables or disables the resumption of the system operation.
When enabled, the user is allowed to set the Date and Time.
Reload Global Timer Events
The HDD, FDD, COM, LPT Ports, and PCI PIRQ are I/O events that can
prevent the system from entering a power saving mode or can awaken
the system from such a mode. When an I/O device wants to gain the
attention of the operating system, it signals this by causing an IRQ to
occur. When the operating system is ready to respond to the request, it
interrupts itself and performs the service.
HPET Support
HPET stands for High Precision Event Timer. HPET can produce
periodic interrupts at a much higher resolution than the RTC and is used
to synchronize multimedia streams, providing smooth playback and
reducing the need to use other timestamp calculations such as an
x86 CPU's RDTSC instruction. HPET is not supported in Windows XP,
Windows Server 2003, or earlier Windows versions. HPET is supported
under Linux and Windows Vista. By default, this field is enabled.
HPET Mode
By default, this field is set to 32-bit mode.

C. Watchdog Timer Configuration
The WDT is used to generate a variety of output signals after a user
programmable count. The WDT is suitable for use in the prevention of
system lock-up, such as when software becomes trapped in a deadlock.
Under these sorts of circumstances, the timer will count to zero and the
selected outputs will be driven. Under normal circumstance, the user
will restart the WDT at regular intervals before the timer counts to zero.
