Installing the CPU
The MB845 motherboard supports a Socket 478 processor socket for
Intel® Pentium® 4 processors.
The Socket 478 processor socket comes with a lever to secure the
processor. Raise this lever to about a 90° angle to allow the insertion of
the processor. Place the processor into the socket by making sure the
notch on the corner of the CPU corresponds with the notch on the inside
of the socket. Once the processor has slide into the socket, return the
lever to the lock position. Refer to the figures below.
After you have installed the processor into the socket, check if the
jumpers for the CPU type and speed are correct.
NOTE: Ensure that the CPU heat sink and the CPU top surface are in
total contact to avoid CPU overheating problem that would
cause your system to hang or be unstable.
ATX Power Installation
Power is provided to the MB845 motherboard with the J10 standard
ATX power supply connector and J12 ATX 12V power connector.
These two power connectors should be utilized for the motherboard to
function.

Watchdog Timer Configuration
The WDT is used to generate a variety of output signals after a user
programmable count. The WDT is suitable for use in the prevention of
system lock-up, such as when software becomes trapped in a deadlock.
Under these sort of circumstances, the timer will count to zero and the
selected outputs will be driven. Under normal circumstance, the user
will restart the WDT at regular intervals before the timer counts to zero.

BIOS SETUP
BIOS Introduction
The Award BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) installed in your
computer system’s ROM supports Intel® Pentium® 4 processors. The
BIOS provides critical low-level support for a standard device such as
disk drives, serial ports and parallel ports. It also adds virus and
password protection as well as special support for detailed fine-tuning of
the chipset controlling the entire system.
BIOS Setup
The Award BIOS provides a Setup utility program for specifying the
system configurations and settings. The BIOS ROM of the system stores
the Setup utility. When you turn on the computer, the Award BIOS is
immediately activated. Pressing the <Del> key immediately allows you
to enter the Setup utility. If you are a little bit late pressing the <Del>
key, POST (Power On Self Test) will continue with its test routines, thus
preventing you from invoking the Setup. If you still wish to enter Setup,
restart the system by pressing the ”Reset” button or simultaneously
pressing the <Ctrl>, <Alt> and <Delete> keys. You can also restart by
turning the system Off and back On again. The following message will
appear on the screen:
Press
<DEL>
to
Enter
Setup
In general, you press the arrow keys to highlight items, <Enter> to
select, the <PgUp> and <PgDn> keys to change entries, <F1> for help
and <Esc> to quit.
When you enter the Setup utility, the Main Menu screen will appear on
the screen. The Main Menu allows you to select from various setup
functions and exit choices.

control keys section, there is another section, which displays
information on the currently highlighted item in the list.
Note:
If the system cannot boot after making and saving system
changes with Setup, the Award BIOS supports an override to
the CMOS settings that resets your system to its default.
Warning: It is strongly recommended that you avoid making any
changes to the chipset defaults. These defaults have been
carefully chosen by both Award and your system
manufacturer to provide the absolute maximum performance
and reliability. Changing the defaults could cause the system
to become unstable and crash in some cases.

BIOS SETUP
Standard CMOS Setup
“Standard CMOS Setup” choice allows you to record some basic
hardware configurations in your computer system and set the system
clock and error handling. If the motherboard is already installed in a
working system, you will not need to select this option. You will need to
run the Standard CMOS option, however, if you change your system
hardware configurations, the onboard battery fails, or the configuration
stored in the CMOS memory was lost or damaged.

Virus Warning
This item protects the boot sector and partition table of your hard disk
against accidental modifications. If an attempt is made, the BIOS will
halt the system and display a warning message. If this occurs, you can
either allow the operation to continue or run an anti-virus program to
locate and remove the problem.
CPU L1 and L2 Cache
Cache memory is additional memory that is much faster than
conventional DRAM (system memory). CPUs from 486-type on up
contain internal cache memory, and most, but not all, modern PCs have
additional (external) cache memory. When the CPU requests data, the
system transfers the requested data from the main DRAM into cache
memory, for even faster access by the CPU. These items allow you to
enable (speed up memory access) or disable the cache function. By
default, these items are Enabled.
Quick Power On Self Test
When enabled, this field speeds up the Power On Self Test (POST) after
the system is turned on. If it is set to Enabled, BIOS will skip some
items.

These fields determine the drive that the system searches first for an
operating system. The options available include Floppy, LS/ZIP,
HDD-0, SCSI, CDROM, HDD-1, HDD-2, HDD-3, LAN and Disable.
Boot Other Device
These fields allow the system to search for an operating system from
other devices other than the ones selected in the First/Second/Third Boot
Device.
Swap Floppy Drive
This item allows you to determine whether or not to enable Swap Floppy
Drive. When enabled, the BIOS swaps floppy drive assignments so that
Drive A becomes Drive B, and Drive B becomes Drive A. By default,
this field is set to Disabled.
Boot Up Floppy Seek
This feature controls whether the BIOS checks for a floppy drive while
booting up. If it cannot detect one (either due to improper configuration
or its absence), it will flash an error message.
Boot Up NumLock Status
This allows you to activate the NumLock function after you power up the
system.
Gate A20 Option
This field allows you to select how Gate A20 is worked. Gate A20 is a
device used to address memory above 1 MB.
Typematic Rate Setting

value is Setup. When you select System, the system prompts for the User
Password every time you boot up. When you select Setup, the system
always boots up and prompts for the Supervisor Password only when the
Setup utility is called up.
APIC Mode
APIC stands for Advanced Programmable Interrupt Controller. The
default setting is Enabled.
MPS Version Control for OS
This option is specifies the MPS (Multiprocessor Specification) version
for your operating system. MPS version 1.4 added extended
configuration tables to improve support for multiple PCI bus
configurations and improve future expandability. The default setting is
1.4.
OS Select for DRAM > 64MB
This option allows the system to access greater than 64MB of DRAM
memory when used with OS/2 that depends on certain BIOS calls to
access memory. The default setting is Non-OS/2.
Report No FDD For WIN 95
If you are using Windows 95/98 without a floppy disk drive, select
Enabled to release IRQ6. This is required to pass Windows 95/98's SCT
test. You should also disable the Onboard FDC Controller in the
Integrated Peripherals screen when there's no floppy drive in the system.
If you set this feature to Disabled, the BIOS will not report the missing
floppy drive to Win95/98.

This option refers to the method by which the DRAM timing is selected.
The default is By SPD.
CAS Latency Time
You can select CAS latency time in HCLKs of 2/2 or 3/3. The system
board designer should set the values in this field, depending on the
DRAM installed. Do not change the values in this field unless you
change specifications of the installed DRAM or the installed CPU. The
choices are 1.5, 2 and 2.5.
Active to Precharge Delay
The default setting for the Active to Precharge Delay is 6.
DRAM RAS# to CAS# Delay
This option allows you to insert a delay between the RAS (Row Address
Strobe) and CAS (Column Address Strobe) signals. This delay occurs
when the SDRAM is written to, read from or refreshed. Reducing the
delay improves the performance of the SDRAM.
DRAM RAS# Precharge
This option sets the number of cycles required for the RAS to accumulate
its charge before the SDRAM refreshes. The default setting for the
Active to Precharge Delay is 3.

The Setting Enabled allows caching of the video BIOS ROM at
C0000h-F7FFFh, resulting in better video performance. However, if
any program writes to this memory area, a system error may result.
Memory Hole at 15MB - 16MB
In order to improve performance, certain space in memory can be
reserved for ISA cards. This field allows you to reserve 15MB to 16MB
of memory address space to ISA expansion cards. This makes memory
from 15MB and up unavailable to the system. Expansion cards can only
access memory up to 16MB. By default, this field is set to Disabled.
Delayed Transaction
The chipset has an embedded 32-bit posted write buffer to support delay
transactions cycles. Select Enabled to support compliance with PCI
specification version 2.1.
Delay Prior to Thermal
This field activates the CPU thermal function after the systems boots for
the set number of minutes. The options are 4, 8, 16 and 32.
AGP Aperture Size
The field sets aperture size of the graphics. The aperture is a portion of
the PCI memory address range dedicated for graphics memory address
space. Host cycles that hit the aperture range are forwarded to the AGP
without any translation. The default setting is 64M.
On-Chip VGA
By default, the On-Chip VGA or chipset-integrated VGA is Enabled.
On-Chip Frame Buffer Size
The On-Chip Frame Buffer Size can be set us 1MB or 8MB. This
memory is shared with the system memory.
