2.3 Running the BIOS Setup Program
Your panel PC is likely to have been properly set up and configured by
your dealer prior to delivery. You may still find it necessary to use the
panel PC's BIOS (Basic Input-Output System) setup program to

or reset the panel PC, by pressing the "Del" key on your keyboard
immediately after powering on the computer.
The settings you specify with the setup program are recorded in a
special area of memory called CMOS RAM. This memory is backed up
by a battery so that it will not be erased when you turn off or reset the
system. Whenever you turn on the power, the system reads the
settings stored in CMOS RAM and compares them to the equipment
check conducted during the power on self-test (POST). If an error
occurs, an error message will be displayed on screen, and you will be
prompted to run the setup program.
If you want to change the setup of BIOS, refer to Chapter 8 for more
detailed information.

2.4 Installing System Software
Recent releases of operating systems from major vendors include
setup programs which load automatically and guide you through hard
disk preparation and operating system installation. The guidelines
below will help you determine the steps necessary to install your
operating system on the panel PC hard drive.
Note:
Some distributors and system integrators may have
already pre-installed system software prior to shipment of your panel PC.
Installing software requires an installed HDD. Software can be loaded
in the PPC-S123 using any of four methods:
2.4.1 Method 1: Use the Ethernet
You can use the Ethernet port to download software to the HDD.
2.4.2 Method 2: Use an FDD
The FDD port is located on the riser card as shown in Figure 3-10.
Attach a communication cable and a power cable to the FDD port, then
attach them to an FDD. Insert a disk containing the software and
consult your software manual for installation procedures.
2.4.3 Method 3: Use the COM or parallel port
You can use Lap Link 6 or similar transmission software. Connect
another PC to the PPC-S123 with an appropriate cable and transmit the
software to the PPC-S123.
2.4.4 Method 4: Use a 3.5" HDD or CD-ROM
Please refer to Section 3.4.2 "Secondary HDD/CD-ROM drive installation"

4.1 Jumpers and Connectors
4.1.1 Setting jumpers
You can configure your panel PC to match the needs of your application by setting jumpers. A jumper is the simplest kind of electrical
switch. It consists of two metal pins and a small metal clip (often
protected by a plastic cover) that slides over the pins to connect them.
To “close” a jumper, you connect the pins with the clip. To “open” a
jumper you remove the clip. Sometimes a jumper will have three pins,
labeled 1, 2, and 3. In this case, you would connect either pins 1 and 2
or pins 2 and 3.

Award BIOS Setup
This chapter describes how to set BIOS
configuration data.
8.1 Award BIOS Setup
The PPC-S123 comes with an Award BIOS chip that contains the ROM
setup for your system. This chip serves as an interface between the
processor and the rest of the mainboard's components. This chapter
explains the information contained in the setup program and tells you
how to modify the settings according to your system configuration.
Some setup items will not be explained, because it is recommended that
users do not change such items.
Note:
Values for the various setup items that appear on
your own screen (including default values) may not
be the same as the values shown on the screen
figures in this chapter. This is because the BIOS is
revised and updated from time to time. If in doubt,
check Advantech's website for the latest BIOS
versions and related information.
8.2 CMOS Setup Utility
Figure 8-1: Setup program initial screen
A setup program, built into the system BIOS, is stored in the CMOS
RAM that allows the configuration settings to be changed. This
66
PPC-S123 User's Manual
program is executed when the user changes the system configuration;
when the user changes the system backup battery; or when the
system detects a configuration error and asks the user to run the setup
program. At power-on RAM testing, the message "Press DEL to enter
Setup" appears. After pressing the "DEL" key, the CMOS setup utility
screen will appear as shown in Fig. 8-1. Use the arrow keys to select
and press "Enter" to run the selected program.
8.3 Standard CMOS Setup
Figure 8-2: CMOS setup screen
The standard CMOS setup screen is shown above. System BIOS
automatically detects memory size, so no changes are necessary. It has
a few items requiring setting. Each item may have one or more optional
settings. System BIOS allows you to change the system date and time,
IDE hard disk, floppy disk drive types for drives A: and B:, boot-up
video display mode, and POST error handling selection. Use the arrow
keys to highlight the item and then use the "PgUp" or "PgDn" keys to
select the value you want for each item.

Programming the
Watchdog Timer
The PPC-S123 is equipped with a watchdog
timer that resets the CPU or generates an
interrupt if processing comes to a standstill
for any reason. This feature ensures system
reliability in industrial standalone or
unmanned environments.
A.1 Programming the Watchdog Timer
To program the watchdog timer, you must write a program which writes
I/O port address 443 (hex). The output data is a time interval value. The
value range is from 01 (hex) to 3E (hex), and the related time interval is
from 1 sec. to 62 sec.

you want to disable the watchdog timer, your program should read I/O
port 443 (hex).
