VT8361
The KLE133 chip set consists of the VT8361 system controller (552 pin
BGA) and the VT82C686B PCI to ISA bridge (352 pin BGA). The system
controller provides superior performance between the CPU, DRAM and
PCI bus with pipelined, burst, and concurrent operation.
The VT8361 supports four banks of DRAMs up to 1GB. The DRAM
controller supports standard, Synchronous DRAM (SDRAM), in a flexible
mix / match manner. The Synchronous DRAM interface allows zero wait
state bursting between the DRAM and the data buffers at 100/133 MHz.
The four banks of DRAM can be composed of an arbitrary mixture of
1M/2M/4M/8M/16M/32MxN DRAMs.
The VT8361 system controller also supports full AGP v2.0 capability for
maximum bus utilization including 1x/2x/4x mode transfers, SBA (Side
Band Addressing), Flush/Fence commands, and pipelined grants. An eight
level request queue plus a four level post-write request queue with
thirty-two and sixteen quad words of read and write data FIFO’s
respectively are included for deep pipelined and split AGP transactions. A
single-level GART TLB with 16 full associative entries and flexible
CPU/AGP/PCI remapping control is also provided for operation under
protected mode operating environments. Both Window 95 VxD and
Windows 98 /Windows 2000 mini port drivers are supported for
interoperability with major AGP-based 3D and DVD- capable multimedia
accelerators.
The VT8361 supports two 32-bit 3.3/5V system buses (one AGP and one
PCI) that are synchronous/ pseudo-synchronous to the CPU bus. The chip
also contains a built-in bus-to-bus bridge to allow simultaneous concurrent
operations on each bus. Five levels (double words) of post write buffers
are included to allow for concurrent CPU and PCI operation. For PCI
master operation, forty-eight levels (double words) of post write buffers
and sixteen levels (double words) of prefetch buffers are included for
concurrent PCI bus and DRAM/cache accesses. The chip also supports
9
SY-K7VEM+

enhanced PCI bus commands such as Memory-Read-Line,
Memory-Read-Multiple and Memory-Write-Invalid commands to
minimize snoop overhead. In addition, advanced features are supported
such as snoop ahead, snoop filtering, L1 write-back forward to PCI master,
and L1 write-back merged with PCI post write buffers to minimize PCI
master read latency and DRAM utilization. Delay transaction and read
caching mechanisms are also implemented for further improvement of
over all system performance.
The 352-pin Ball Grid Array VT82C686B PCI to ISA bridge supports four
levels (double words) of line buffers, type F DMA transfers and delay
transaction to allow efficient PCI bus utilization The VT82C686B also
includes an integrated keyboard controller with PS/2 mouse support,
integrated DS12885 style real time clock with extended 256 byte CMOS
RAM, integrated master mode enhanced IDE controller with full scatter/
gather capability and extension to UltraDMA-33/66 for 33/66 MB/sec
transfer rate, integrated USB interface with root Hub and two function
ports with built-in physical layer transceivers, Distributed DMA supports,
and On Now/ ACPI compliant advanced configuration and power
management interface.
For sophisticated power management, the Via 8361 provides independent
clock stop control for the CPU/SDRAM, PCI, and AGP buses and
Dynamic CKE control for powering down of the SDRAM. A separate
suspend-well plane is implemented for the SDRAM control signals for
Suspend-to-DRAM operation. Coupled with the VT82C686B south bridge
chip, a complete power conscious PC motherboard can be implemented
with no external TTLs.
The Via 8361 chipset is ideal for high performance, high quality, high
energy efficient and high integration desktop AGP / PCI computer
systems.

acceptable values
When suggested ratings for temperature, fan speed, or voltage are
exceeded, an interrupt is activated. The hardware monitor component
connects to the SMBus.
1-12 WAKE ON LAN TECHNOLOGY
Wake on LAN technology enables remote wakeup of the computer
through a network. Wake on LAN technology requires a PCI add-in
network interface card (NIC) with remote wakeup capabilities. The remote
wakeup connector on the NIC must be connected to the onboard Wake on
LAN connector. The NIC monitors network traffic at the Ethernet interface;
upon detecting a Magic Packet, the NIC asserts a wakeup signal that
powers up the computer. This feature uses the Wake on LAN connector.
☛CAUTION
For Wake on LAN, the 5-V standby line for the power supply must be
capable of delivering +5V ±5 % at 720 mA. Failure to provide adequate
standby current when implementing Wake on LAN can damage the power
supply.

2-3.8 Troubleshooting at First Start
Video (no display) related issues
I built a new computer system using a Soyo board and nothing
happens when turning it on, no video and no beeps from the PC
speaker. What is happening and how can it be fixed?
No screen and no beeps mean that your CPU and motherboard do not
work at all. It could be that the CPU is not seated correctly or that a
component on the M/B is grounded (shorted) with the case. Also make
sure to check the voltage setting switch (110V/220V) on the back of the
power supply. To isolate the problem do the following:
1.
Press and hold down on the “Ins” (insert) key while turning on the
computer until you get video. If you do not get video then,
2.
Remove all add-on cards, unplug all hard-disk and floppy-disk drive
cables and see if you can hear some beeps. If you still do not get any beeps,
then try putting the motherboard on the table (to isolate it from the case)
with the CPU and speaker only, and give it one more try.
I hear a series of beeps and I do not get anything from my monitor.
What could be wrong?
Continuous beeps – One or more of the memory modules is not seated
correctly in its socket.
BIOS Issues
Where can I find the BIOS revision of my mainboard?
It will be displayed on the up-left corner on the screen during boot-up. It
will show as your board type followed by the revision number, such as
5EH_2CA1 (meaning revision 2CA1 for the SY-5EH board) or 6BA+
IV_2AA2 which means SY-6BA+ IV motherboard with 2AA2 bios.
Where can I find the latest BIOS of my motherboard?
Please go to the technical support page of one of the SOYO websites
(Taiwan: www.soyo.com.tw), and look up your motherboard to find
the latest BIOS revision.

SY-K7VEM+
Hardware Installation
Hard disk, floppy drive, CD-ROM etc
When I boot up my new computer I got "floppy boot failure" and the
LED on the floppy stays on
Make sure the red wire of floppy ribbon cable goes to Pin1 on the floppy
drive side (don't trust the "key lock" or "notch") and use the end-connector
of the cable (don't use middle one).
Modem issues
I have installed my modem drivers several times and I still cannot get
my modem to work. Why?
If you are sure that the modem driver has been installed correctly, then you
need to install the via 4 in 1 driver from the SOYO CD, this is because
Windows does not properly recognize relatively new chipsets.
Audio Issues
I do not get any sound from my sound card. What could be wrong?
Please make sure the speaker is connected to the speaker out port on your
sound card.
In Device Manager, I keep getting yellow exclamation signs on my
sound port even though I have installed my sound driver several times
and I could not get my sound card to work. What is wrong?
It is likely that you did not have the correct driver installed. If you are sure
that the correct sound driver has been installed, then please install the 'via
4 in 1' driver for the motherboard.
The sound is working in my system, but when I play CD music from
the CD-ROM, I do not get any sound. What is wrong?
This is because the 3-wire audio cable from the CD-ROM to the sound
card is not connected or it is loose.
The sound and everything else works fine except that the recorder and
microphone do not work. What is wrong?
This is because the recorder and microphone in the Windows are not
enabled. Please go to sound properties and enable them.

SY-K7VEM+

Lock up (freeze)
When I boot up my system, everything works fine. It sees my CPU
and memory, detects my hard drive, floppy drive and CD-ROM but
locks up at "Verify DMI pool data... ", and it won’t go any further.
What should I do?
Please clear the CMOS via JP5 then choose 'load optimized default' in the
bios and save the bios and exit. Next, unplug all other add-on cards except
the video card and floppy drive controller, and see if it can boot from
floppy. Then put back the peripherals one by one to identify which one
causes the lockup.
I can not get my board to run properly.
Please make sure you have the latest bios and driver from the SOYO web
site at: http://www.soyo.com
2-3.9 Power Off
There are two possible ways to turn off the system:
1.
Use the Shutdown command in the Start Menu of Windows 95/98
to turn off your computer.
2.
Press the mechanical power-button and hold down for over 4
seconds, to shutdown the computer. If you press the power-button for
less than 4 seconds, then your system will enter into Suspend Mode.
You are now ready to configure your system with the BIOS setup program.
