Chapter 2 Installation
P4Dual-915GL is a Micro ATX form factor (9.6-in x 8.6-in, 24.4 cm x 21.8 cm)
motherboard. Before you install the motherboard, study the configuration of your
chassis to ensure that the motherboard fits into it.
Pre-installation Precautions
Take note of the following precautions before you install motherboard components or change any motherboard settings.
1. Unplug the power cord from the wall socket before touching any
component.
2. To avoid damaging the motherboard components due to static electricity,
NEVER place your motherboard directly on the carpet or the like. Also
remember to use a grounded wrist strap or touch a safety grounded
object before you handle components.
3. Hold components by the edges and do not touch the ICs.
4. Whenever you uninstall any component, place it on a grounded antistatic pad or in the bag that comes with the component.
Before you install or remove any component, ensure that the power is
switched off or the power cord is detached from the power supply.
Failure to do so may cause severe damage to the motherboard,
peripherals, and/or components.
13
2.1 CPU Installation
Step 1.
Step 2.
Step 3.
Unlock the socket by lifting the lever up to a 90° angle.
Position the CPU directly above the socket such that its marked corner
matches the base of the socket lever.

2.2 Installation of CPU Fan and Heatsink
This motherboard adopts 478-pin CPU socket to support Intel® Pentium®4
CPU. It requires larger heatsink and cooling fan to dissipate heat. You also
need to spray thermal grease between the CPU and the heatsink to
improve heat dissipation. Make sure that the CPU and the heatsink are
securely fastened and in good contact with each other. Then connect the
CPU fan to the CPU_FAN connector (CPU_FAN1, see page 11, No. 5). For
proper installation, please kindly refer to the instruction manuals of the
CPU fan and the heatsink.
14
2.3 Installation of Memory Modules (DIMM)
P4Dual-915GL motherboard provides two 184-pin DDR (Double Data Rate) DIMM
slots, and supports Dual Channel Memory Technology. For dual channel
configuration, you always need to install two identical (the same brand, speed,
size and chip-type) memory modules in the DDR DIMM slots to activate Dual
Channel Memory Technology. Otherwise, it will operate at single channel mode.
If you install only one memory module or two non-identical memory
modules, it is unable to activate the Dual Channel Memory Technology.
Installing a DIMM
Please make sure to disconnect power supply before adding or
removing DIMMs or the system components.
Step 1.
Step 2.
Unlock a DIMM slot by pressing the retaining clips outward.
Align a DIMM on the slot such that the notch on the DIMM matches the break
on the slot.
notch
break
notch
break
The DIMM only fits in one correct orientation. It will cause permanent
damage to the motherboard and the DIMM if you force the DIMM into the
slot at incorrect orientation.
Step 3.
Firmly insert the DIMM into the slot until the retaining clips at both ends fully
snap back in place and the DIMM is properly seated.
15
2.4 Expansion Slots (PCI, AMR, AGI, and AGI Express Slots)
There are 2 PCI slots, 1 AMR slot, 1 AGI slot, and 1 AGI Express slot (PCI Express x
4) on this motherboard.

interface.
AMR slot: AMR slot is used to insert an ASRock MR card (optional) with v.92
Modem functionality.
AGI slot: The AGI [ASRock Graphics Interface] slot is a special design that only
supports compatible AGP VGA cards. For the information of the compatible AGP VGA cards, please refer to the “Supported AGP VGA Cards List
for AGI Slot” on page 8 and page 9.
AGI Express slot (PCI Express x 4):
AGI Express slot (PCI Express x 4) is used to install PCI Express expansion cards. For the information of the compatible PCI Express VGA cards,
please refer to the “Supported PCI Express VGA Card List for AGI Express Slot (PCI Express x 4)” on page 10.
1. If you install the add-on AGP VGA card or PCI Express VGA card,
BIOS setup will automatically disable the onboard VGA.
2. Please make sure to set the BIOS onboard VGA selection into “En
abled” if you want this motherboard to support Surround Display.
Then the onboard VGA in Windows will be the primary VGA card.
Installing an expansion card
Step 1.
Step 2.
Step 3.
Step 4.
Before installing the expansion card, please make sure that the power
supply is switched off or the power cord is unplugged. Please read the
documentation of the expansion card and make necessary hardware
settings for the card before you start the installation.
Remove the bracket facing the slot that you intend to use. Keep the screws
for later use.
