Note: All AAEON's LCD products are manufactured with High precision
technology. However, in all LCD panels there maybe a small number of
defective pixels that do not change color. This is a normal occurrence for
all LCD displays from all manufacturers and should not be noticeable or
objectionable under normal operation. AAEON qualify the LCD panel
following industry standard: total 7 dead pixels on a screen or if there are
3 within 1 inch square area of each other on the display.

3.1 System Test and Initialization
These routines test and initialize board hardware. If the routines
encounter an error during the tests, you will either hear a few short
beeps or see an error message on the screen. There are two kinds
of errors: fatal and non-fatal. The system can usually continue the
boot up sequence with non-fatal errors. Non-fatal error messages
usually appear on the screen along with the following instructions:
Press <F1> to RESUME
Write down the message and press the F1 key to continue the boot
up sequence.
System configuration verification
These routines check the current system configuration against the
values stored in the CMOS memory. If they do not match, the
program outputs an error message. You will then need to run the
BIOS setup program to set the configuration information in memory.
There are three situations in which you will need to change the
CMOS settings:
1. You are starting your system for the first time
2. You have changed the hardware attached to your system
3. The CMOS memory has lost power and the configuration
information has been erased.
TheFOX-151 CMOS memory has an integral lithium battery backup
for data retention. However, you will need to replace the complete
unit when it finally runs down.

3.2 Award BIOS Setup
Awards BIOS ROM has a built-in Setup program that allows users
to modify the basic system configuration. This type of information is
stored in battery-backed CMOS RAM so that it retains the Setup
information when the power is turned off.
Entering Setup
Power on the computer and press <Del> immediately. This will
allow you to enter Setup.
Standard CMOS Features
Use this menu for basic system configuration. (Date, time, IDE,
etc.)
Advanced BIOS Features
Use this menu to set the advanced features available on your
system.
Advanced Chipset Features
Use this menu to change the values in the chipset registers and
optimize your system performance.
Integrated Peripherals
Use this menu to specify your settings for integrated peripherals.
(Primary slave, secondary slave, keyboard, mouse etc.)
Power Management Setup
Use this menu to specify your settings for power management.
(HDD power down, power on by ring, KB wake up, etc.)

Use this menu to load the BIOS default values for the
minimal/stable performance for your system to operate.
Load Optimized Defaults
Use this menu to load the BIOS default values that are factory
settings for optimal performance system operations. While AWARD
has designated the custom BIOS to maximize performance, the
factory has the right to change these defaults to meet their needs.

SYMPTOMS
If you are using a Universal Serial Bus (USB) CD-ROM drive to
install Windows 2000 on certain legacy-free computers, you may
receive a "Stop 0x0000007B" Inaccessible_boot_device error
message while booting from the installation CD. Because many
legacy-free computers do not have a standard CD-ROM drive or
floppy disk drive, the USB CD-ROM drive may be the only method
for installing or recovering Windows.
CAUSE
Windows 2000 Setup does not support certain USB CD-ROM
drives as bootable devices. This causes error message during the
Text-mode portion of Setup.
RESOLUTION
Please contact your computer manufacturer for information about
obtaining updated Windows 2000 Setup disks that you can use to
boot your computer with a USB CD-ROM device.
STATUS
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft
products that are listed at the beginning of this article.

We use Low Reflection touch screen with Anti-Refelctive surface
which incorporates "circular polarizer" filems inside.It is new
technology of Touch panel , which has several layers of films,
applied to reduce the amount of reflection back into the users eye
(Reflectivity:1.5 ± 1%)and increase "contrast ratio" of display in
outdoor environment.
