Memory
The category is display-only which is determined by POST
Self Test) of the BIOS.
symbol 254 \f "MS LineDraw" \s 10.5 } Base Memory
The POST of the BIOS will determine the amount of base (or conventional) memory installed in the
system. The value of the base memory is typically 512K for systems with 512K memory installed
on the motherboard, or 640K for systems with 640K or more memory installed on the motherboard.
symbol 254 \f "MS LineDraw" \s 10.5 } Extended Memory
The BIOS determines how much extended memory is present during the POST. This is the amount
of memory located above 1MB in the CPU's memory address map.
symbol 254 \f "MS LineDraw" \s 10.5 } Other Memory
This refers to the memory located in the 640K to 1024K address space. This is memory that can be
used for different applications. DOS uses this area to load device drivers to keep as much base
memory free for application programs. Most use for this area is Shadow RAM.
symbol 254 \f "MS LineDraw" \s 10.5 } Total Memory
System total memory is the sum of basic memory, extended memory, and other memory.

3.10 IDE HDD Auto Detection
The Enhance IDE features was included in all Award BIOS. Below is a brief description of this
feature.
1. Setup Changes
<I> Auto-detection
• BIOS setup will display all possible modes that are supported by the HDD including
NORMAL, LBA & LARGE
.
• If HDD does not support LBA modes, no ‘LBA’option will be shown.
• If no of cylinders is less than or equal to 1024, no ‘LARGE’ option will be show
• Users can select a mode which is appropriate for them.

When HDD type is in ‘user’ type, the “MODE” option will be opened for user to select their
own HDD mode.
(2) HDD Modes
The Award BIOS supports 3 HDD modes : NORMAL, LBA & LARGE
NORMAL mode
Generic access mode in which neither the BIOS nor the IDE controller will make any
transformations during accessing.
_____________________________________________________________

3. AWARD BIOS SETUP
The maximum number of cylinders, head & sectors for NORMAL mode are 1024, 16 & 63
no. Cyclinder
(1024)
x no. Head
( 16)
x no. Sector
( 63)
x no. per sector
( 512)
528 Megabytes
If user set their HDD to NORMAL mode, the maximum accessible HDD size will be 528
Megabytes even though its physical size may be greater than that!
LAB (Logical Block Addressing) mode
This is a HDD accessing method to overcome the 528 Megabyte bottleneck. The number
of
cylinders, heads & sectors shown in setup may not be the number physically contained in
the
HDD.
During HDD accessing, the IDE controller will transform the logical address described by
sector, head & cylinder number into its own physical address inside the HDD.
The maximum HDD size supported by LBA mode is 8.4 Gigabytes which is obtained by the
following formula:
no. Cyclinder
x no. Head
x no. Sector
x bytes per sector
8.4 Gigabytes
( 1024)
( 255)

LARGE mode
Extended HDD access mode supported by Award Software.
Some IDE HDDs contain more than 1024 cylinder without LBA support (in some cases,
user
do not want LBA). The Award BIOS provides another alternative to support these kinds of
HDD!
Example of LARGE mode:
CYLS.

The BIOS tricks DOS (or any other OS) into thinking that the number of cylinders is less
than
1024 by dividing it by 2. At the same time, the number of heads is multiplied by 2. A
reverse

(3) Remarks
To support LBA or LARGE BLOCK mode of HDDs, there must be some sofewares involved.
All these software is located in the Award HDD Service Routine(INT 13h). It may fail to
access the HDD when LBA (LARGE) mode is selected if you are running under an Operating
System which replaces the whole INT 13h.

3.12 BIOS Reference - POST 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.
POST Beep
Currently there are two kind of beep codes in BIOS.
One code indicates that a video error has occurred and the BIOS cannot initialize the video screen to
display any additional information. This beep code consists of a single long beep followed by three
short beeps. The other beep code indicates that your DRAM error has occurred. This beep code
consists of a single long beep repeatedly.
Error Messages
One or more of the following messages may be displayed if the BIOS detects an error during the
POST.
CMOS BATTERY HAS FAILED
CMOS battery is no longer functional. It should be replaced.
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
The display switch on the motherboard can be set to either monochrome or color. This indicates the
switch is set to a different setting than indicated in Setup. Determine which setting is correct and
then either turn off the system and change the jumper, or enter Setup and change the VIDEO
selection.
