WARNING
Thermal issue is highly essential for processors with a speed of 600MHz and above.
Hence, we recommend you to use the CPU fan qualified by AMD or motherboard
manufacturer. Meanwhile, please make sure CPU and fan are securely fastened well.
Otherwise, improper fan installation not only gets system unstable but also could
damage both CPU and motherboard because insufficient thermal dissipation.
If you would like to know more about thermal topic please see AMD website for
detailed thermal requirement through the address:
http://www.amd.com
NOTICE
If you’ve changed your CPU or overclocked your system, the system may fail to boot up,
even with a Clear CMOS jumper physically resetted. The reason is that NVIDIA’s new
nForce2 chipset introduces a way to reset a Clear CMOS jumper without removing a
chassis. Please follow the steps listed below:
1. Turn off your computer and unplug the power cable. Reconnect it after 30 seconds;
2. Press <Insert > and then press your computer’s start button. Continue holding <Insert>
until the system begins the POST (Power-On Self Test);
3. Immediately press <Del> to enter the BIOS;
4. Select ‘Load Optimized Defaults’ to return your system to a bootable condition; then
select ‘SAVE to CMOS and EXIT’;
5. Reboot your system.
Moreover, if your system fails to boot up after you reset the CPU FSB, select “SAVE to
CMOS and EXIT” in the BIOS. After the system restarts, there is on screen a message
warning you not to reset or turn off your computer:
Warning! New setting is updating now
Do not Reset or Shutdown the system
Your system works after the BIOS is updated.

Step 1
Install the CPU:
1. Locate the CPU ZIF (Zero Insertion Force) socket on the upper-right sector
of your mainboard (between the back-panel connectors and the DIMM
memory slots).
2. Pull the CPU ZIF socket lever slightly sideways away from the socket to
unlock the lever, and then bring it to an upwardly vertical position.
3. Place your AMD AthlonXP/Athlon/Duron processor in the socket A. Note
that the CPU's edges have been purposely designed non-symmetrically to
prevent from inserting the processor in the wrong direction. The following
diagram demonstrates the correct placement of the CPU in the ZIF socket.
You can see that the two blunt-edged corners should face towards the socket
lever.

4. Slightly push the AMD AthlonXP/Athlon/Duron processor into the socket
without applying excessive force while making sure there is no gap between
CPU and socket. Then lower the socket-lever all the way down to its horizontal position and lock it to secure the CPU in place.
5. The AMD AthlonXP/Athlon/Duron processor requires a set of heatsink/fan
to ensure proper cooling of the processor. If heatsink/fan have not been already mounted on your CPU, you must purchase the heatsink/fan separately
and have it installed. Plug the cable throught the heatsink/fan in the CPU fan
power connector located nearby. Note that there are several types of CPU
fan connectors. Normally, if your mainboard supports the hardware monitoring function, a 3-pin fan power connector should allow your system to
detect the CPU fan's speed. The CPU fan can also run with a 2-pin fan power
connector, however, detection of CPU fan's speed is not supported. Another type of CPU fan may feature a large 4-pin fan power connector, which
does not support CPU fan's speed detection and must be directly connected
to the system's power supply unit. Please refer to the following diagram.
- 11 -
Step 2.
Set Jumpers
This mainboard is jumperless! The default jumper settings have been set for the
common usage standard of this mainboard. Therefore, you do not need to reset
the jumpers unless you require special adjustments as any of the following cases:
1. Clear CMOS
For first-time DIY system builders, we recommend that you do not change the
default jumper settings if you are not totally familiar with the mainboard configuration procedures. The factory-set default settings are tuned for optimum
system performance. For the advanced users who wish to customize their system, section 3.2 Jumper Settings will provide detailed information on how to
configure your mainboard manually.
Caution: If you did not place the battery apropriately, which may cause
risk of explosion. please pefer to the related rule for the dispose of used batteries.
Step 3.
Install DDR SDRAM System Memory
To install memory, insert DDR SDRAM memory module(s) in DIMM slot(s).
Note that DDR SDRAM modules are directional and will not go in the DIMM
slots unless properly oriented. After the module is fully inserted into the DIMM
slots, lift the clips of both sides of the DIMM slot to lock the module in place.

Step 4
Install Internal Peripherals in System Case
Before you place the mainboard into your system case, we recommend that
you first assemble all the internal peripheral devices into the computer housing, including, but not limited to, the hard disk drive (IDE/HDD), floppy disk
drive (FDD), CD-ROM drive, and ATX power supply unit.
To install IDE & FDD drives, follow these procedures:
1. Set the required jumpers on each device according to the instructions provided by the manufacturer. (IDE, HDD, and CD-ROM have to set jumpers
to Master or Slave mode depending on whether you install more than one
device of each kind.)
2. Connect the IDE cable and FDD cable on the back-panel of the internal
peripheral devices to the corresponding headers on board. Note that the
cable should be oriented with its colored stripe (usually red or magenta)
connected to pin#1 of the IDE or FDD connector on the mainboard and
on the device as well.
3. Connect an available power cable from your system power supply unit to
the back-panel of each peripheral device. Note that the power cable is directional and cannot fit in if not properly positioned.
- 13 -
Step 5
Mount the Mainboard on the Computer Chassis
1. You may find there are a lot of mounting holes on your computer chassis
and mainboard. To match the holes on both properly, the key point is to
make the back-panel of the mainboard in a close fit with your system case,
as shown below.
2. Position the studs between the chassis and the mainboard. The studs are
used to fix the mainboard and to keep a certain distance between them,
for avoiding any electrical shorts in-between.
(If your computer case is already equipped with mounting studs, you need
to tighten the screws to attach the mainboard.)
Note: In most computer housings, you can find 4 or more holes to place
studs for fixing the mainboard. If there aren't enough matching holes,
screw at least 4 studs to ensure the proper attachment of the mainboard.
- 14 -
Step 6
Connect Front-Panel LEDs/Switches/USBs
You can find there are several cables existing in the system case and originating from the front-panel devices (HDD LED, Green LED, Reset switch, and
USB devices etc.). These cables serve to connect the front-panel LEDs,
switches, and USB connectors to JP10 and JP11/JP14, as shown below.

Step 12
System Boot Up For the First-Time
To ensure your system completedly and correctly installed, please refer to the
above installation steps once again before first booting up your system.
1. Insert a system-bootable floppy disk (DOS 6.2X, Windows 9X/NT, or
others), which contains the FDISK and FORMAT utilities.
2. Turn on the system power.
3. First, you need to use the FDISK utility to create a primary partition of the
hard disk. You can also add an extended partition if your primary partition
does not use all of the available hard disk space. If you choose to add an
extended partition, you will have to create one or more logical partitions
to occupy all the space available to the extended partition. The FDISK
utility will assign a drive letter (i.e. C:, D:, E:,......) to each partition shown in
the FDISK program. After the FDISK procedure, reboot your system by
using the same disk.
Note: DOS 6.2X and Windows 95A can only support up to 2.1GB of HDD
partition. If you use the FDISK utility with one of the operating systems mentioned above, you can only install your HDD into any partitions no larger than 2.1GB.
4. Now, use the FORMAT utility to format all the partitions you've created.
When formatting the primary partition (C:), key in the command, "FORMAT C:/S."
Note: FORMAT C:/S can transfer all the necessary system files into the primary partition of your hard disk. Afterwards, your HDD will become
a bootable drive.
5. Install all the necessary drivers for CD-ROM, Mouse, etc.
6. Setup the complete operating system according to your OS installation
guide.
- 21 -
Step 13
Install Drivers & Software Components
Please note that all the system utilities and drivers are designed for Win 9x/
2000/ME/NT/XP operating systems. Make sure your operating system is
already installed before running the installation programs on CD-ROM.
1. Insert the FN41V3 bundled CD-ROM into your CD-ROM drive. The autorun program will display the main installation window on screen.
2. Choose "Install Mainboard FN41V3 Series Driver"
3. Choose "Install nVIDIA Chipset driver" and complete it.
3. Choose "Install VGA Device Driver" and complete it.
4. Quit (from the auto-run installation program).

3.3 System Memory Configuration
The FN41V3 mainboard has two 184-pin DIMM slots that allow you to install
from 64MB up to 2GB of system memory. Each 184-pin DIMM (Dual In-line
Memory Module) slot can accommdate 64MB, 128MB, 256MB, 512MB,
and 1GB of PC1600/PC2100/PC2700/PC3200 compliant 2.5V single or
double side 64-bit wide data path DDR SDRAM modules. You do not need
to set any jumper to configure memory since the BIOS utility can detect the
system memory automatically. You can check the total system memory value
in the BIOS Standard CMOS Setup menu.
1. Install Memory:
Install memory in any or all of the banks. The combination shown as follows.

Fan Speed Up When CPU Temp
Enables 3 phase smart controls to the Selected fan. This feature ranges
from 40 0C to 52 0C, in an increment of 4 0C.
Ø The choice: 40 0C, 44 0C, 48 0C, or 52 0C.
If actual CPU temp (reported by BIOS) stays below 48 0C then CPU fan
speed will run at a quiet mode (1st phase) of approximately 2000
RPM.
But when the actual CPU temp goes above the preselected 48 0C
temperature threshold, then CPU fan speed will automatically engage
into normal mode (2nd phase) of about 3000 RPM and cool down
the CPU temperature. When the CPU temperature drops back below
the 48 0C temperature threshold, CPU fan speed will again automatically shift back to the quiet mode (1st phase) to reduce fan noise level.
Fail-safe mode (3rd phase) Variable Fan Speed and CPU temperature
Control is as predefined at 52 0C. Where in the event of system and
CPU operating under extreme working conditions, and if CPU temperature is raised above 52 0C then the SMART BIOS will engage the CPU
fan in Fail-safe mode to rotate at about 3500 RPM. Please note that the
higher fan speed, the fan cooler will be become slightly noiseier to
compensate for the increase in CPU temperature.

system according to the Setup selections stored in CMOS. After saving
the values the system is restarted again.

Pressing <Enter> on this item asks for confirmation:
Quit Without Saving (Y/N)? N
