CHAPTER 1: INTRODUCTION
1.1 BEFORE YOU START
Thank you for choosing our product. Before you start installing the mainboard, please
make sure you follow the instructions below:
• Prepare a dry and stable working environment with sufficient lighting.
• Always disconnect the system from power outlet before operation.
• Before you take the mainboard out from anti-static bag, ground yourself properly by
touching any safely grounded appliance, or use grounded wrist strap to remove the
static charge.
• Avoid touching the components on mainboard or the rear side of the board unless
necessary. Hold the board on the edge, do not try to bend or flex the board.
• Do not leave any unfastened small parts inside the case after installation. Loose
parts will cause short circuits which may damage the equipment.
• Keep the system from dangerous area, such as heat source, humid air, and water.
• Please switch on/off the machine normally. That is, DO NOT pull out power cord
directly from the mainboard or the system may damage.

CHAPTER 3: BIOS SETUP
Introduction
The purpose of this chapter is to describe the settings in the AMI BIOS Setup program
on this motherboard. The Setup program allows users to modify the basic system
configuration and save these settings to CMOS RAM. The power of CMOS RAM is
supplied by a battery so that it retains the Setup information when the power is turned
off.
Basic Input-Output System (BIOS) determines what a computer can do without
accessing programs from a disk. This system controls most of the input and output
devices such as keyboard, mouse, serial ports and disk drives. BIOS activates at the
first stage of the booting process, loading and executing the operating system. Some
additional features, such as virus and password protection or chipset fine-tuning options
are also included in BIOS.
The rest of this manual will to guide you through the options and settings in BIOS Setup.
Plug and Play Support
This AMI BIOS supports the Plug and Play Version 1.0A specification.
EPA Green PC Support
This AMI BIOS supports Version 1.03 of the EPA Green PC specification.
ACPI Support
AMI ACPI BIOS support Version 1.0/2.0 of Advanced Configuration and Power
interface specification (ACPI). It provides ASL code for power management and device
configuration capabilities as defined in the ACPI specification, developed by Microsoft,
Intel and Toshiba.
PCI Bus Support
This AMI BIOS also supports Version 2.3 of the Intel PCI (Peripheral Component
Interconnect) local bus specification.
DRAM Support
DDR2 SDRAM (Double Data Rate II Synchronous DRAM) is supported.
Supported CPUs
This AMI BIOS supports the Intel CPU.
Using Setup
When starting up the computer, press <Del> during the Power-On Self-Test (POST) to
27
User Manual
enter the BIOS setup utility.
In the BIOS setup utility, you will see General Help description at the top right corner,
and this is providing a brief description of the selected item. Navigation Keys for that
particular menu are at the bottom right corner, and you can use these keys to select item
and change the settings.
Notice
