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.

CPU
The VIA EPIA-P700 Pico-ITX mainboard is packaged with a standard VIA
®
®
C7 1.0 GHz NanoBGA2. The VIA C7 1.0 GHz processor requires a
heatsink with fan to provide sufficient cooling.
CPU Fan
The CPU fan runs on +5V and maintain CPU cooling. When connecting
the wire to the connector, always be aware that the red wire (positive
wire) should be connected to the +5V. The black wire is Ground and
should always be connected to GND.

If two drives are connected to a single cable, the jumper on the second
drive must be set to slave mode. Refer to the drive documentation
supplied by the vendor for the jumper settings.
SATA
The next generation connector supports thin SATA
cables for primary internal storage devices. The current
SATA interface allows up to 300MB/s data transfer rate
- faster than the standard parallel ATA with 133 MB/s
(Ultra DMA).

EPIA-P700 User’s Manual
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
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 1 and 2 while the system is off. Return the jumper to
pins 2 and 3 afterwards. Setting the jumper while the system is on will
damage the mainboard.

Caution:
Caution:
Except when clearing the RTC RAM, never remove the cap on
CLEAR_CMOS jumper default position. Removing the cap will cause
system boot failure. Avoid clearing the CMOS while the system is on;
it will damage the mainboard.

Description
S1(POS)
S1/Power On Suspend (POS) is a low power state. In this
state, no system context (CPU or chipset) is lost and
hardware maintains all system contexts.
S3/Suspend To RAM (STR) is a power-down state. In this
state, power is supplied only to essential components such
as main memory and wakeup-capable devices. The system
context is saved to main memory, and context is restored
from the memory when a "wakeup" event occurs.
Depends on the OS to select S1 or S3.

User 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.
66
EPIA-P700 User’s Manual
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
Enter>
Enter when prompted to enter a new
password. A message will show up to confirm disabling the password.
To cancel the process press <Esc

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
