BIOS Setup
This chapter discusses Award’s Setup Program built into the ROM BIOS. The Setup
Program allows users to modify the basic system configuration. This special information
is then stored in battery-backed RAM, which retains the setup information when the
power is turned off.
Starting Setup
The Award BIOS is immediately activated when you turn on the computer. The BIOS
reads the system information contained in the CMOS and begins the process of checking
out the system and configuring it. When it finishes, the BIOS will seek an operating
system on one of the disks and then launch and turn control over to the operating
system.
While the BIOS is in control, the Setup Program can be activated :
1. By pressing <Del> immediately after switching the system on, or
2. By pressing the <Del> key when the following message appears briefly at
the bottom of the screen during the POST (Power On Self Test )
Press DEL to enter SETUP
If the message disappears before you can respond and you still wish to enter Setup,
restart the system to try again by turning it OFF then ON or pressing the “RESET” button
on the system case. You may also restart by simultaneously pressing the <Ctrl>, <Alt>,
and <Delete> keys. If you do not press the keys at the correct time and the system does
not reset, an error message will be displayed and you will again be asked to ...
PRESS F1 TO CONTINUE, DEL TO ENTER SETUP
Getting Help
Press F1 to pop up a small help window that describes the appropriate keys to use and
the possible selections for the highlighted item. To exit the Help Window press <Esc> or
the F1 key again.
In Case of Problems
If, after making and saving system changes with the Setup Program, you discover that
your computer does not reset, use the Award BIOS defaults to override the CMOS
settings.

Virus Warning:
This item can be set to Enabled or Disabled, the default setting being Disabled. When
this feature is enabled, if there is any attempt from a software or an application to
access the boot sector or the partition table, the BIOS will warn you that a boot virus
is attempting to access the hard disk.
CPU Level 1 Cache:
This item is used to enable or to disable the CPU level 1 cache. When the cache is set
to Disabled it is much slower, so the default setting for this item is Enabled since it will
speed up memory access. Some old and very poorly written programs will make the
computer malfunction or crash if the system speed is too high. In this case, you
should disable this feature. The default setting is Enabled.
CPU Level 2 Cache:
This item is used to enable or to disable the CPU level 2 cache ECC checking function.
The default setting is Enabled.
Quick Power On Self Test:
After the computer has been powered on, the BIOS of the motherboard will run a
series of tests in order to check the system and its peripherals. If the Quick Power on
Self-Test feature is enable, the BIOS will simplify the test procedures in order to
speed up the boot process. The default setting is Enabled.
First Boot Device:
When the computer boots up, the BIOS attempts to load the operating system from the
devices in the sequence selected in these items: floppy disk drive A, LS/ZIP devices,
hard drive C, SCSI hard disk drive or CD-ROM. There are ten options for the boot
sequence that you can choose (The default setting is Floppy.):
FloppyÎ LS120Î Hard diskÎ CDROMÎ ZIP100Î USB-FDDÎ USB-ZIPÎ
USB-CDROMÎLANÎDisabled
Second Boot Device:
Description is the same as the First Boot Device, the default setting is Hard disk.
Third Boot Device:
Description is same as the First Boot Device, the default setting is CDROM.
Boot Other Device:
Two options are available: Enabled or Disabled. The default setting is Enabled. This
setting allows the BIOS to try three kinds of boot devices that set from the above
three items.
Boot Up NumLock Status:
On: At boot up, the Numeric Keypad is in numeric mode. (Default Settings)
Off: At boot up, the Numeric Keypad is in cursor control mode.
Gate A20 Option
This item allows you to select how gate A20 is handled. Gate A20 is a device used to
address memory above 1 Mbytes. When set to Fast, the system chipset controls Gate
A20.When set to Normal, a pin in the keyboard controller controls Gate A20. Setting
Gate A20 to Fast improves system speed, particularly with OS/2 and Windows.

Typematic Rate Setting:
This item allows you to adjust the keystroke repeat rate. When set to Enabled, you
can set the two keyboard typematic controls that follow (Typematic Rate and
Typematic Rate Delay). If this item is set to Disabled, the BIOS will use the default
setting. The default setting is Disabled.
Typematic Rate (Chars/Sec):
When you press a key continuously, the keyboard will repeat the keystroke according
to the rate you have set (Unit: characters/second.. Eight options are available:
6Î 8Î 10Î 12Î 15Î 20Î 24Î 30Î Back to 6. The default setting is 6.
Typematic Delay (Msec):
When you press a key continuously, if you exceed the delay you have set here, the
keyboard will automatically repeat the keystroke according to a certain rate (Unit:
milliseconds). Four options are available: 250Î 500Î 750Î 1000Î Back to 250. The
default setting is 250.
Security Option:
This option can be set to System or Setup. The default setting is Setup. After you
have created a password through PASSWORD SETTING, this option will deny access
to your system (System) or modification of computer setup (BIOS Setup) by unauthorized users.
SYSTEM: When you choose System, a password is required each time the
computer boots up. If the correct password is not given, the system will not start.
SETUP: When you choose Setup, a password is required only when accessing the
BIOS Setup. If you have not set a password in the PASSWORD SETTING option, this
option is not available. To disable security, select Set Supervisor Password at main
menu and then you will be asked to enter password. Do not type anything and just
press the Enter key and it will disable security. Once security is disabled, the system
will boot and you can enter the BIOS setup menu freely
Notice : Don’t forget your password. If you forget the password, you will have to
open the computer case and clear all information in the CMOS before you can start up
the system. But by doing this, you will have to reset all previously set options.
OS Select For DRAM > 64MB:
When the system memory is bigger than 64MB, the communication method between
the BIOS and the operating system will differ from one operating system to another. If
you use OS/2, select OS2; if you are using another operating system, select NonOS2. The default setting is Non-OS2.

ACPI Function (Advanced Configuration and Power Interface):
ACPI gives the operating system direct control over the power management and Plug
and Play functions of a computer. There are two options that can be selected,
“Enabled” and “Disabled”. You can select “Enabled” to enable ACPI functions. If you
want ACPI functions to work normally, you should notice two things. One is your
operating system must support ACPI, as of now only Microsoft® Windows® 98/2K/XP
supports these functions. The second thing is that all devices and add-on cards in
your system must fully support ACPI, both hardware and software (drivers).If you
want to know if your devices or add-on cards support ACPI or not, please contact the
device or add-on card manufacture for more information. If you want to know more
about ACPI specifications, please go to the address below for more detailed
information:
http://www.teleport.com/~acpi/acpihtml/home.htm
Note: If you enable the ACPI function in the BIOS setup, the SMI function will not
work.
ACPI Suspend Type:
Two options are available: S1(POS) and S3(STR). The default setting is S1(POS).
Generally, ACPI has six states: System S0 state, S1, S2, S3, S4, S5. S1 and S3 states
are described below:
The S1 (POS) State (POS means Power On Suspend):
While the system is in the S1 sleeping state, its behavior is as described below:
# The processor is not executing instructions. The processor’s complex context is
maintained.
# Dynamic RAM context is maintained.
BIOS Setup
40
# Power Resources are in a state compatible with the system S1 state. All Power
Resources that supply a System Level reference of S0 are in the OFF state.
# Devices states are compatible with the current Power Resource states. Only
devices which solely reference Power Resources which are in the ON state for a
given device state can be in that device state. In all other cases, the device is in the
D3 (off) state.
# Devices that are enabled to wake the system and that can do so from their current
device state can initiate a hardware event which transitions the system state to S0.
This transition causes the processor to continue execution where it left off. To
transition into the S1 state, the operating software does not have to flush the
processor’s cache. From the software point of view, this state is functionally the
same as the S2 state. The operational difference can be that some Power Resources
that could be left ON in the S2 state might not be available to the S3 state. As such,
additional devices can be required to be in logically lower D0, D1, D2, or D3 state for
S3 than S2. Similarly, some device wake events can function in S2 but not S3.
Because the processor context can be lost while in the S3 state, the transition to the
S3 state requires that the operating software flush all dirty cache to DRAM.
Above information for system S0 & S3 were refer to ACPI Specification Rev. 1.0.
Power Management Option:
This item allows you to select the type (or degree) of power saving and is directly
related to the following modes:
1. Suspend Mode
2. HDD Power Down
There are three options for power management, three of which have fixed mode
settings:
• User Define
“User Define” defines the delay for accessing the power modes.
• Min Saving
When these two saving modes are enabled, the system is set up for minimum power
savings.
Suspend Mode = 1 Hour
• Max Saving
When the two saving modes are enabled, the system is set up for maximum power
savings.
Suspend Mode = 1 Min
MODEM Use IRQ:
You can specify the IRQ for modem use. Eight options are available: N/AÎ 3Î 4Î
5Î 7Î 9Î 10Î 11. The default setting is 3.
Modem Ring Resume
Two options are available: Enabled and Disabled. Default setting is Disabled. If you
connect an external modem to the onboard serial port, the system will be turned on
when a telephone ring-up occurs.
RTC Alarm Resume
Two options are available: Enabled and Disabled. Default setting is Disabled. The RTC
alarm can turn on the system. You can set Date (of month) and Time (hour, minute,
and second) when you set this item to Enabled.

Two options are available: Auto(ESCD) and Manual. Default setting is Auto(ESCD).
When the setting is Auto(ESCD), the IRQ Resources can not be changed. When
resources are controlled manually, the IRQ Resources can then be changed.The
Award Plug and Play BIOS has the capability to automatically configure all of the boot
and PnP compatible devices. If you select Auto (ESCD), The IRQ Resources item will
be disabled as the BIOS automatically assigns them. But if you have trouble in
assigning the interrupt resources automatically, you can select Manual to set which
IRQ is assigned to PCI cards.
PCI /VGA Palette Snoop:
This option allows the BIOS to preview VGA Status, and to modify the information
delivered from the Feature Connector of the VGA card to the MPEG Card. This option
can solve the display inversion to black after you have used the MPEG card.

Set Supervisor/User Password
You can set either supervisor or user password, or both of them. The difference
between them are:
Supervisor Password :
You can enter the Setup Program and change
the options of the setup menus.
User Password :
You can enter the Setup Program but can not
change the options of the setup menus.
When you select this function, the following message will appear at the center of the
screen to assist you in creating a password.
ENTER PASSWORD:
Type the password, up to eight characters in length, and press<Enter>. The new password
will clear the previously entered password from the CMOS memory. You will be asked to
confirm the password. Type the password again and press <Enter>. You may also
press <Esc> to abort the selection and operate without a password.
To disable a password, just press <Enter> when you are prompted to enter the password.
A message will be displayed to confirm that the password is disabled.
PASSWORD DISABLED.
Once the password is disabled, the system will reset and you can enter the Setup
Program freely.
When a password is enabled, you will be prompted to enter it every time you try to enter
setup. This prevents an unauthorized person from changing any setting of your system
configuration.
In addition, when a password is enabled, you can require the BIOS to request a password
every time your system is rebooted. This would further prevent unauthorized use of
your computer.
The password requirement is defined by the Security Option of the BIOS Features Setup
Menu. If the Security Option is set to “System”, the password will be required both at
resetting and at entering setup. If the option is set to “Setup”, the prompt only appears
when you try to enter setup.
