Installation
This chapter provides you with information about hardware
installation procedures. It is recommended to use a grounded wrist
strap before handling computer components. Electrostatic discharge
(ESD) can damage some components.
8
Installation
CPU
The VIA EPIA-EX Mini-ITX mainboard can support VIA C7 NanoBGA2
Processors. The processor requires a heatsink with fan for 1.5GHz SKU and a
fanless heatsink for 1.0GHz SKU.

Chapter 2
CPU Fan and System Fan: CPUFAN and SYSFAN
The CPUFAN (CPU fan) and SYSFAN (system fan) run on +12V and maintain
system cooling. When connecting the wire to the connectors, always be
aware that the red wire is the Positive and should be connected to the +12V.
The black wire is Ground and should always be connected to GND.

MEMORY MODULE INSTALLATION
The VIA EPIA-EX Mini-ITX mainboard provides one 240-pin DIMM slot for
DDR2 533 SDRAM memory modules and supports the memory size up to 1GB.
DIMM
DDR2 SDRAM Module Installation Procedures
•
Locate the DIMM slot in the motherboard.
•
Unlock a DIMM slot by pressing the retaining clips outward.
•
Align a DIMM on the socket such that the notch on the DIMM
matches the break on the slot.
•
Firmly insert the DIMM into the slot until the retaining clips snap
back in place and the DIMM is properly seated.
Available DDR2 SDRAM Configurations
Refer to the table below for available DDR2 SDRAM configurations on the
mainboard.

CONNECTING THE POWER SUPPLY
The VIA EPIA-EX Mini-ITX mainboard supports a conventional ATX power
supply for the power system. Before inserting the power supply connector,
always make sure that all components are installed correctly to ensure that
no damage will be caused.
ATX 20-Pin Power Connector
To connect the ATX power supply, make sure the power plug is inserted in
the proper orientation and the pins are aligned. Then push down the plug
firmly into the connector.

JUMPERS
The mainboard provides jumpers for setting some mainboard functions. This
section will explain how to change the settings of the mainboard functions
using the jumpers.
Clear CMOS: CLEAR_CMOS
The onboard CMOS RAM stores system configuration data and has an
onboard battery power supply. To reset the CMOS settings, set the jumper
on pins 2 and 3 while the system is off. Return the jumper to pins 1 and 2
afterwards. Setting the jumper while the system is on will damage the
mainboard.

will cause system boot failure.
Avoid clearing the CMOS while the
system is on; it will damage the mainboard.

The IRQ (interrupt request line) are hardware lines over which devices can
send interrupt signals to the microprocessor. The “PCI & LAN” IRQ pins are
typically connected to the PCI bus INT A# ~ INT D# pins as follows:
PCI Slot 1
PCI Slot 2
Order 1
Order 2
Order 3
Order 4
INT B#
INT A#
INT C#

Spread Spectrum
When the mainboard's clock generator pulses, the extreme values (spikes) of
the pulses create EMI (Electromagnetic Interference). The Spread Spectrum
function reduces the EMI generated by modulating the pulses so that the
spikes of the pulses are reduced to flatter curves.

Change / Set / Disable Password
This option is for setting a password for entering BIOS Setup.
When a
password has been set, a password prompt will be displayed whenever BIOS
Setup is run. This prevents an unauthorized person from changing any part
of your system configuration.
There are two types of passwords you can set. A supervisor password and a
user password.
When a supervisor password is used, the BIOS Setup
program can be accessed and the BIOS settings can be changed. When a
user password is used, the BIOS Setup program can be accessed but the
BIOS settings cannot be changed.
To set the password, type the password (up to eight characters in length)
and press <Enter>. The password typed now will clear any previously set
password from CMOS memory. The new password will need to be reentered
to be confirmed. To cancel the process press <Esc>.
To disable the password, press <Enter> when prompted to enter a new
password. A message will show up to confirm disabling the password. To
cancel the process press <Esc>.
62
BIOS Setup
Additionally, when a password is enabled, the BIOS can be set to request the
password each time the system is booted. This would prevent unauthorized
use of the system. See “Security Option” in the “Advanced BIOS Features”
section for more details.

CHAPTER 4
Driver Installation
This chapter gives you brief descriptions of each mainboard driver and
application. You must install the VIA chipset drivers first before
installing other drivers such as audio or VGA drivers. The applications
will only function correctly if the necessary drivers are already
installed.
66
Driver Installation
DRIVER UTILITIES
Getting Started
The mainboard includes a Driver Utilities CD that contains the driver utilities
and software for enhancing the performance of the mainboard. If the CD is
missing from the retail box, please contact the local dealer for the CD.
Note: The driver utilities and software are updated from time to time. The latest
updated versions are available at http://www.viaembedded.com./
67
Chapter 4
Running the Driver Utilities CD
To start using the CD, insert the CD into the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive.
The CD should run automatically after closing the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive.
The driver utilities and software menu screen should then appear on the
screen. If the CD does not run automatically, click on the “Start” button and
select “Run…” Then type: "D:\Setup.exe".
NOTE: D: might not be the drive letter of the CD-ROM/DVD-ROM in
your system.
68
Driver Installation
CD CONTENT
VIA 4in1 Drivers: Contains VIA ATAPI Vendor Support
Driver (enables the performance enhancing bus mastering
functions on ATA-capable Hard Disk Drives and ensures IDE
device compatibility), AGP VxD Driver (provides service routines
to your VGA driver and interface directly to hardware, providing
fast graphical access), IRQ Routing Miniport Driver (sets the
system's PCI IRQ routing sequence) and VIA INF Driver
(enables the VIA Power Management function).
VIA Graphics Driver: Enhances the onboard VIA graphic
chip.
VIA Audio Driver: Enhances the onboard VIA audio chip.
VIA USB 2.0 Driver: Enhances VIA USB 2.0 ports.
VIA LAN Driver: Enhances the onboard VIA 10/100M LAN
chip.
