2-3. HOW TO SET THE JUMPERS
You can configure your board by setting the jumpers. Jumper is consists of
two or three metal pins with a plastic base mounted on the card, and by using
a small plastic "cap", Also known as the jumper cap (with a metal contact
inside), you are able to connect the pins. So you can set-up your hardware
configuration by "opening" or "closing" pins.
The jumper can be combined into sets that called jumper blocks. When the
jumpers are all in the block, you have to put them together to set up the
hardware configuration. The figure below shows how this looks like.
JUMPERS AND CAPS
If a jumper has three pins (for example, labelled PIN1, PIN2, and PIN3), You
can connect PIN1 & PIN2 to create one setting and shorting. You can either
connect PIN2 & PIN3 to create another setting. The same jumper diagrams are
applied all through this manual. The figure below shows what the manual
diagram looks like and what they represent.

This board has watchdog timer function for monitoring whether the system
is still work or not after a period of time. The user can select watchdog
timer to system reset or NMI (Non Maskable interrupt) depending on the
jumper set in “Reset/NMI/Clear Watchdog Selection” found in chapter 2.
This is defined at I/O port 443H. When you want to enable the watchdog
timer, please write I/O port 443H, and then the system will either reset itself
or perform the NMI function. Likewise, when you want to disable the
function, write I/O port 441H, the system will run the command to stop the
Watchdog function.
In watchdog function, you must write your program so when it
writes I/O port address 443 for enable watchdog and write I/O port address
441 for disable watchdog. The timer's intervals have a tolerance of 25% so
you should program an instruction that will refresh the timer about every
second.
The following program shows you how to program the watch timer in your

Award BIOS Setup
4-1. INTRODUCTION
This chapter will show you the function of the BIOS in managing the
features of your system. The half size Embedded Board is
equipped with the BIOS for system chipset from Award Software Inc. This
page briefly explains the function of the BIOS in managing the special
features of your system. The following pages describe how to use the BIOS
for system chipset Setup menu.
Your application programs (such as word processing, spreadsheets, and
games) rely on an operating system such as DOS or OS/2 to manage such
things as keyboard, monitor, disk drives, and memory.
The operating system relies on the BIOS (Basic Input and Output system), a
program stored on a ROM (Read-only Memory) chip, to initialize and
configure your computer's hardware. As the interface between the hardware
and the operating system, the BIOS enables you to make basic changes to
your system's hardware without having to write a new operating system.
The following diagram illustrates the interlocking relationships between the
system hardware, BIOS, operating system, and application program:

Award BIOS Setup
IDE Primary Master / Slave:
IDE Secondary Master / Slave:
The BIOS can automatically detect the specifications and optimal operating
mode of almost all IDE hard drives. When you select type AUTO for a hard
drive, the BIOS detect its specifications during POST, every time system
boots.
If you do not want to select drive type AUTO, other methods of selecting
drive type are available:
1.
Match the specifications of your installed IDE hard drive(s) with the
preprogrammed values for hard drive types 1 through 45.
2.
Select USER and enter values into each drive parameter field.
3.
Use the IDE HDD AUTO DETECTION function in Setup.
Here is a brief explanation of drive specifications:
Type: The BIOS contains a table of pre-defined drive types. Each
defined drive type has a specified number of cylinders, number of heads,
write precompensation factor, landing zone, and number of sectors.
Drives whose specifications do not accommodate any predefine type are
classified as type USER.
•
Size: Disk drive capacity (approximate). Note that this size is usually
greater than the size of a formatted disk given by a disk-checking
program.
•
Cyls: number of cylinders.
•
Head: number of heads.
•
Precomp: write precompensation cylinders.
•
Landz: landing zone.
•
Sector: number of sectors.
•
Mode: Auto, Normal, Large or LBA.
Auto: The BIOS automatically determines the optimal mode.
Normal: Maximum number of cylinders, heads, sectors
supported are 1024, 16 and 63.
Large: For drives that do not support LBA and have more
than 1024 cylinders.
USER′S MANUAL
Page: 4-5
Chapter

Award BIOS Setup
LBA (Logical Block Addressing): During drive accesses, the
IDE controller transforms the data address described by
sector, head and cylinder number into a physical block
address, significantly improving data transfer rates. For
drives greater than 1024 cylinders.

to compensate for the speed differences between the CPU and the PCI bus.
When Disabled, the writes are not buffered and the CPU must wait until the
write is complete before starting another write cycle.
PCI DYNAMIC BURSTING:
When Enabled, every write transaction goes to the write buffer. Burstable
transactions then burst on the PCI bus and non-burstable transaction don’t.
PCI MASTER 0 WS WRITE:
When Enabled, writes to the PCI bus are executed with zero wait states.

This section outlines the error messages that may occur when you
operate the system. It also gives you some tips on how to solve the
problems.

Troubleshooting
TROUBLESHOOTING FOR ERROR MESSAGE
The following information inform you the error messages and the trouble
shooting. Please adjust your systems according to the messages below. And
make sure all the components and connectors are in proper position and
firmly attached. If the errors still encountered, please contact with your
distributor for maintenance.
POST BEEP :
Currently there are two kind of beep codes in BIOS. The one code indicates that a video error has occurred and the BIOS cannot initialize the
video screen to display any additional information. This beep code con-sists
of a single long beep followed by three short beeps. The other one code
indicates that your DRAM error has occurred. This beep code consists of a
single long beep repeatedly.
CMOS BATTERY FAILURE :
When the CMOS battery is out of work or has run out, the user has to
replace the whole unit.
CMOS CHECKSUM ERROR :
This error inform you that the CMOS is corrupted. When the battery runs
weak, this situation might happen. Please check the battery and change a
new one when necessary.
DISPLAY SWITCH IS SET INCORRECTLY :
Display switch on the motherboard can be set to either monochrome or
color. This indicates the switch is set to a different setting than indicated in
Setup. Determine which setting is correct, and then either turn off the
system and change the jumper, or enter Setup and change the video
selection.
DISK BOOT FAILURE:
When you can‘t find the boot device, insert a system disk into Drive A and
press < Enter >. Make sure both the controller and cables are all in proper
positions, also make sure the disk is formatted correct device. Then reboot
the system.
Page: C-2
USER′S MANUAL
Appendix
C
Troubleshooting
DISKETTE DRIVES OR TYPES MISMATCH ERROR :
When the diskette drive type is different from CMOS, please run setup or
configure the drive again.
ERROR ENCOUNTERED INITIALIZING HARD DRIVE :
When you can‘t initialize the hard drive. Assure the adapter is installed
correctly and all cables are correctly and firmly attached. Also be sure the
correct hard drive type is selected in Setup.
ERROR INITIALIZING HARD DISK CONTROLLER :
When this error occurs. Be sure the cord is exactly installed in the bus.
Make sure the correct hard drive type is selected in Setup. Also check
whether all of the jumpers are set correctly in the hard drive.
FLOPPY DISK CONTROLLER ERROR OR
NO CONTROLLER PRESENT :
When you cannot find or initialize the floppy drive controller, please check
the controller whether in proper Setup. If there are no floppy drive installed,
Ensure the Diskette Drive selection in Setup is set to NONE.
KEYBOARD ERROR OR NO KEYBOARD PRESENT :
When this situation happens, please check keyboard attachment and no
keys being pressed during the boot. If you are purposely configuring the
system without a keyboard, set the error halt condition in Setup to HALT
ON ALL, BUT KEYBOARD. This will cause the BIOS to ignore the
missing keyboard and continue the boot.
MEMORY ADDRESS ERROR :
When the memory address indicates error. You can use this location along
with the memory map for your system to find and replace the bad memory
chips.
MEMORY SIZE HAS CHANGED :
Memory has been added or removed since the last boot. In EISA mode use
Configuration Utility to re-configure the memory configuration. In ISA
mode enter Setup and enter the new memory size in the memory fields.
USER′S MANUAL
Page: C-3
Appendix
C
Troubleshooting
MEMORY VERIFYING ERROR :
It indicates an error verifying a value already written to memory. Use the
location along with your system's memory map to locate the bad chip.
OFFENDING ADDRESS MISSING :
This message is used in connection with the I/O CHANNEL CHECK and
RAM PARITY ERROR messages when the segment that has caused the
problem cannot be isolated.
REBOOT ERROR :
When this error occurs that requires you to reboot.. Press any key and the
system will reboot.
SYSTEM HALTED :
Indicates the present boot attempt has been aborted and the system must be
rebooted. Press and hold down the CTRL and ALT keys and press DEL.
