ESD Precautions
Integrated circuits on computer boards are sensitive to static
electricity. To avoid damaging chips from electrostatic
discharge, observe the following precautions:
! Do not remove boards or integrated circuits from their anti-static
packaging until you are ready to install them.
! Before handling a board or integrated circuit, touch an unpainted
portion of the system unit chassis for a few seconds. This helps to
discharge any static electricity on your body.
! Wear a wrist-grounding strap, available from most electronic
component stores, when handling boards and components.

BIOS Configuration
Chapter 3 describes the different settings available in the
Award BIOS that comes with the SBC8176 CPU card. Also
contained here are instructions on how to set up the BIOS
configuration.
4.1
BIOS Introduction
The Award BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) installed in your
computer systems ROM supports Intel Pentium  II/III
processors in a standard IBM-AT compatible I/O system. The
BIOS provides critical low-level support for standard devices
such as disk drives, serial 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.
4.2
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. W hen 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.
BIOS Configuration

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.
NOTE:
"
Many disk diagnostic programs, which attempt to
access the boot sector table, can cause the virus
warning. If you will run such a program, disable the
Virus Warning feature.
CPU Internal Cache / External 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.
"
CPU L2 Cache ECC Checking
When enabled, this allows ECC checking of the CPU’s L2 cache. By
default, this field is Enabled.
"

IDE HDD Block Mode
This field allows your hard disk controller to use the fast block mode to
transfer data to and from your hard disk drive.
"
IDE Primary/Secondary Master/Slave PIO
These fields allow your system hard disk controller to work faster.
Rather than have the BIOS issue a series of commands that transfer to
or from the disk drive, PIO (Programmed Input/Output) allows the BIOS
to communicate with the controller and CPU directly.
The system supports five modes, numbered from 0 (default) to 4, which
primarily differ in timing. When Auto is selected, the BIOS will select
the best available mode.

Watchdog Timer Configuration
Using the Watchdog Function
Follow these steps when using the watchdog function onboard
the SBC8155 CPU card.
1.
To enable the watchdog function, read I/O port 121H (e.g.,
“I 121”) under “debug” of MS-DOS environment. To disable
the function, place I/O port 120H under “debug” of MS-DOS
environment.
Reset Watchdog
-Read I/O Port 121H
Disable Watchdog - Read I/O Port 120H
In system Run_Time, you still have to read I/O Port 121H to reset
the Watchdog timer.
If the system fails, the TSR should be stopped for the Watchdog
Reset to be activated.
2.
Set the corresponding Watchdog option in the Integrated
Peripherals menu of the CMOS Setup utility. The available
Time-out Trigger options are 0.5, 1, 5, 10, 20, 50, 100,
150, 200, 250, 300, 350, 400, 450, 500 and 1000 sec(s).
