Chapter 2 Installation
GE Pro-HT / GE Pro-M2 is a Micro ATX form factor (9.6" x 7.5", 24.4 x 19.1 cm)
motherboard. Before you install the motherboard, study the configuration of your
chassis to ensure that the motherboard fits into it.
Make sure to unplug the power cord before installing or removing the
motherboard. Failure to do so may cause physical injuries to you and
damages to motherboard components.
2.1 Screw Holes
Place screws into the holes indicated by circles to secure the motherboard to the
chassis.
Do not over-tighten the screws! Doing so may damage the
motherboard.
2.2 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.

2.3 CPU Installation
Step 1.
Step 2.
Step 3.
o
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.
Carefully insert the CPU into the socket until it fits in place.
The CPU fits only in one correct orientation. DO NOT force the
CPU into the socket to avoid bending of the pins.
Step 4.
When the CPU is in place, press it firmly on the socket while you push
down the socket lever to secure the CPU. The lever clicks on the side tab
to indicate that it is locked.
Step 1
Step 2, 3
Step 4
2.4 Installation of CPU Fan and Heatsink
Intel® Pentium® 4 CPU requires larger heatsink and cooling fan. Thermal
grease between the CPU and the heatsink is also needed to improve heat
dissipation. Make sure that the CPU and the heatsink are securely fastened
and in good contact with each other. For proper installation, please kindly
refer to the instruction manuals of the CPU fan and heatsink vendors.
11
2.5 Installation of Memory Modules (DIMM)
GE Pro-HT / GE Pro-M2 motherboard provides two 184-pin DDR (Double Data Rate)
DIMM slots.
Please make sure to disconnect power supply before adding or
removing DIMMs or the system components.
Step 1.
Step 2.
Step 3.
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.
Firmly insert the DIMM into the slot until the retaining clip snap back in place
and the DIMM is properly seated.
2.6 Expansion Slots (PCI, AMR, and AGP Slots)
There are 2 PCI slots, 1 AMR slot, and 1 AGP slot on GE Pro-HT or GE Pro-M2
motherboard.
PCI slots: The PCI slots are used to install expansion cards that have the 32-bit
PCI interface.
AMR slot: The AMR slot is used to insert an ASRock MR card (optional) with
v.92 Modem functionality.
AGP slot: The AGP slot is AGP 2.0 compliant and supports a 4X / 2X / 1X AGP
card. The ASRock AGP slot has a special locking mechanism which
can securely fasten the inserted graphics card.
Installing an expansion card
Step 1.
Step 2.
Step 3.
Step 4.
Step 5.
Step 6.
12
Before installing the expansion card, read the documentation of the
expansion card and make necessary hardware settings for the card.
Remove the system unit cover (if your motherboard is already installed in a
chassis).

for later use.
Align the card connector with the slot and press firmly until the card is
completely seated on the slot.
Fasten the card to the chassis with screws.
Replace the system cover.
2.7 Jumpers Setup
The illustration shows how jumpers are
setup. When the jumper cap is placed on
pins, the jumper is “SHORT”. If no jumper cap
is placed on pins, the jumper is “OPEN”. The
illustration shows a 3-pin jumper whose pin1
and pin2 are “SHORT” when jumper cap is
placed on these 2 pins.
