When using PCI cards on shared slots, ensure that the drivers support “Share
IRQ” or that the cards do not need IRQ assignments; otherwise, conflicts will
arise between the two PCI groups, making the system unstable and the card
inoperable.

Jumpers
Clear RTC RAM (CLRTC)
This jumper allows you to clear the Real Time Clock (RTC) RAM in CMOS.
You can clear the CMOS memory of date, time, and system setup parameters
by erasing the CMOS RTC RAM data. The onboard button cell battery powers
the RAM data in CMOS, which include system setup information such as
system passwords.
To erase the RTC RAM:
1.
Turn OFF the computer and unplug the power cord.
2.
Remove the onboard battery.
3.
Move the jumper cap from pins 1-2 (default) to pins 2-3. Keep the cap on pins
2-3 for about 5~10 seconds, then move the cap back to pins 1-2.
4.
Reinstall the battery.
5.
Plug the power cord and turn ON the computer.
6.
Hold down the <Del> key during the boot process and enter BIOS setup to reenter data.
®
P5SD2-FM
Except when clearing the RTC RAM, never remove the cap on CLRTC jumper
default position. Removing the cap will cause system boot failure!

You do not need to clear the RTC when the system hangs due to overclocking.
For system failure due to overclocking, use the C.P.R. (CPU Parameter Recall)
feature. Shut down and reboot the system so the BIOS can automatically reset
parameter settings to default values.

BIOS Recovery (3-pin RECOVERY1)
This jumper allows you to recover your original BIOS from a floppy disk in
case the BIOS and data are corrupted.
To recover the BIOS:
2.
Move the jumper cap from pins 1-2 (default) to pins 2-3.
3.
Inset a power cord and turn ON the computer.
4.
Plug the power cord and turn ON the computer.
5.
The system searches for the BIOS file in the floppy then reflashes the
BIOS.
6.
When finished, shut down your computer.
7.
Replace the jumper cap from pins 2-3 to pins 1-2.
8.
Reboot your computer.
9.
Hold down the <Del> key during the boot process and enter BIOS set-up
to re-enter data.

BIOS setup program
This motherboard supports a programmable firmware chip that you can update
using the provided utility described in section “2.1 Managing and updating your
BIOS.”
Use the BIOS Setup program when you are installing a motherboard, reconfiguring
your system, or prompted to “Run Setup.” This section explains how to configure
your system using this utility.
Even if you are not prompted to use the Setup program, you can change the
configuration of your computer in the future. For example, you can enable the
security password feature or change the power management settings. This requires
you to reconfigure your system using the BIOS Setup program so that the computer
can recognize these changes and record them in the CMOS RAM of the firmware
hub.
The firmware hub on the motherboard stores the Setup utility. When you start up
the computer, the system provides you with the opportunity to run this program.
Press <Del> during the Power-On Self-Test (POST) to enter the Setup utility;
otherwise, POST continues with its test routines.
If you wish to enter Setup after POST, restart the system by pressing
<Ctrl>+<Alt>+<Delete>, or by pressing the reset button on the system chassis. You
can also restart by turning the system off and then back on. Do this last option only
if the first two failed.
The Setup program is designed to make it as easy to use as possible. Being a
menu-driven program, it lets you scroll through the various sub-menus and make
your selections from the available options using the navigation keys.

•
The default BIOS settings for this motherboard apply for most conditions to
ensure optimum performance. If the system becomes unstable after
changing any BIOS settings, load the default settings to ensure system
compatibility and stability. Select the Load Default Settings item under the
Exit Menu. See section “2.7 Exit Menu.”
