Introduction
Static Electricity Precautions
It is quite easy to inadvertently damage your PC, system board,
components or devices even before installing them in your system
unit. Static electrical discharge can damage computer components
without causing any signs of physical damage. You must take extra
care in handling them to ensure against electrostatic build-up.
1. To prevent electrostatic build-up, leave the system board in its
anti-static bag until you are ready to install it.
2. Wear an antistatic wrist strap.
3. Do all preparation work on a static-free surface.
4. Hold the device only by its edges. Be careful not to touch any of
the components, contacts or connections.
5. Avoid touching the pins or contacts on all modules and connectors. Hold modules or connectors by their ends.
Important:
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can damage your processor,
disk drive and other components. Perform the upgrade instruction procedures described at an ESD workstation
only. If such a station is not available, you can provide
some ESD protection by wearing an antistatic wrist strap
and attaching it to a metal part of the system chassis. If a
wrist strap is unavailable, establish and maintain contact
with the system chassis throughout any procedures requiring ESD protection.
Safety Measures
To avoid damage to the system:
• Use the correct AC input voltage range..

DDR2 is a higher performance DDR technology
whose data transfer rate delivers bandwidth of 4.3
GB per second and beyond. That is twice the speed of the conventional DDR without increasing its power consumption. DDR2
SDRAM modules work at 1.8V supply compared to 2.6V memory
voltage for DDR modules. DDR2 also incorporates new innovations
such as the On-Die Termination (ODT) as well as larger 4-bit prefetch against DDR which fetches 2 bits per clock cycle.

The Intel GM965/GME965 northbridge chip comes
integrated with the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator
X3100 delivering exceptional 3D graphics performance. It supports
analog CRT, LVDS and DVI interfaces.

DVI (Digital Visual Interface) is a form of video interface technology made to maximize the quality of flat
panel LCD monitors and modern video graphics cards. Data is
transmitted using the TMDS (Transition Minimized Differential
Signaling) protocol, providing a digital signal from the PC’s graphics
subsystem to the display.
DVI
S/PDIF is a standard audio file transfer format that
transfers digital audio signals to a device without
having to be converted first to an analog format. This prevents the
quality of the audio signal from degrading whenever it is converted
to analog. S/PDIF is usually found on digital audio equipment such as
a DAT machine or audio processing device. The S/PDIF connector on
the system board sends surround sound and 3D audio signal outputs to amplifiers and speakers and to digital recording devices like
CD recorders.

This feature allows the system that is in the
Suspend mode or Soft Power Off mode to
wake-up/power-on to respond to calls coming from an external modem or respond to calls from a modem PCI card that uses the PCI
PME (Power Management Event) signal to remotely wake up the
PC.
wake-on-ring
Important:
The 5V_standby power source of your power supply must support ≥720mA.
This feature allows the network to remotely
wake up a Soft Power Down (Soft-Off) PC.
It is supported via the onboard LAN port or via a PCI LAN card
that uses the PCI PME (Power Management Event) signal. However,
if your system is in the Suspend mode, you can power-on the system
only through an IRQ or DMA interrupt.

rtc timer
The RTC installed on the system board allows your
system to automatically power-on on the set date
and time.
The system board is designed to meet the ACPI
(Advanced Configuration and Power Interface) specification. ACPI has energy saving features that enables PCs to implement Power Management and Plug-and-Play with operating systems
that suppor t OS Direct Power Management. ACPI when enabled in
the Power Management Setup will allow you to use the Suspend to
RAM function.
ACPI STR
With the Suspend to RAM function enabled, you can power-off the
system at once by pressing the power button or selecting “Standby”
when you shut down Windows® without having to go through the
sometimes tiresome process of closing files, applications and operating system. This is because the system is capable of storing all programs and data files during the entire operating session into RAM
(Random Access Memory) when it powers-off. The operating session
will resume exactly where you left off the next time you power-on
the system.
Important:
The 5V_standby power source of your power supply must support ≥720mA.
When power returns after an AC power failPower failure ure, you may choose to either power-on the
recovery
system manually or let the system power-on
automatically.

Installing the Fan and Heat Sink
The CPU must be kept cool by using a CPU fan with heat sink.
Without sufficient air circulation across the CPU and heat sink, the
CPU will overheat damaging both the CPU and system board.
Note:
• Use only certified fan and heat sink.
• Your fan and heat sink package usually contains the fan
and heat sink assembly, and an installation guide. If the installation procedure in the installation guide differs from the
one in this section, please follow the installation guide in the
package.
1. On the solder side of the board, match the screw holes of the
retention module base to the mounting holes around the CPU
socket.

Hardware Installation
2. Apply a thin layer of thermal paste on top of the CPU. Do not
spread the paste all over the surface. When you later place the
heat sink on top, the compound will disperse evenly.
3. While holding the retention module base in position (step 1),
place the fan / heat sink assembly on top of the CPU. The 4
screws around the heat sink must match the screw holes of the
retention module base. We strongly recommend using this type
of fan / heat sink assembly because it provides adequate cooling
to the components of the system board.
Turn each Phillips head screw half way down first to initially stabilize the heat sink onto the board, then finally tighten each screw.
Important:
Do not turn the first screw all the way down followed by
the next and so on. This is to avoid imbalance which might
cause cracks or fractures to the CPU and/or heat sink assembly.
4. Connect the CPU fan’s cable connector to the CPU fan connector on the system board.

Important:
When you install the CPU fan and heat sink assembly, make
sure the assembly is positioned in such a way that the direction of the airflow blows towards the Northbridge. This is to
ensure optimum thermal condition and system performance.

The IDE connector supports 2 devices, a Master and a Slave. Use
an IDE ribbon cable to connect the drives to the system board. An
IDE ribbon cable have 3 connectors on them, one that plugs into an
IDE connector on the system board and the other 2 connects to
IDE devices. The connector at the end of the cable is for the Master
drive and the connector in the middle of the cable is for the Slave
drive.

ATA/66 and ATA/100 hard drives. We recommend that you use
hard drives from the same manufacturer. In a few cases, drives from
two different manufacturers will not function properly when used together. The problem lies in the hard drives, not the system board.
Important:
If you encountered problems while using an ATAPI CD-ROM
drive that is set in Master mode, please set the CD-ROM drive
to Slave mode. Some ATAPI CD-ROMs may not be recognized
and cannot be used if incorrectly set in Master mode.

was handled via the keyboard controller. Today, while keyboards still
provide this support, it is more common, and much faster, for the system chipset to provide support for gate A20.

Troubleshooting
Appendix C - Troubleshooting
Troubleshooting Checklist
This chapter of the manual is designed to help you with problems
that you may encounter with your personal computer. To efficiently
troubleshoot your system, treat each problem individually. This is to
ensure an accurate diagnosis of the problem in case a problem has
multiple causes.
Some of the most common things to check when you encounter
problems while using your system are listed below.
1. The power switch of each peripheral device is turned on.
2. All cables and power cords are tightly connected.
3. The electrical outlet to which your peripheral devices are
connected is working. Test the outlet by plugging in a lamp or
other electrical device.
4. The monitor is turned on.
5. The display’s brightness and contrast controls are adjusted
properly.
6. All add-in boards in the expansion slots are seated securely.
7. Any add-in board you have installed is designed for your system
and is set up correctly.
Monitor/Display
If the display screen remains dark after the system is turned on:
1. Make sure that the monitor’s power switch is on.
2. Check that one end of the monitor’s power cord is properly
attached to the monitor and the other end is plugged into a
working AC outlet. If necessary, try another outlet.
3. Check that the video input cable is properly attached to the
monitor and the system’s display adapter.
4. Adjust the brightness of the display by turning the monitor’s
brightness control knob.
146
Troubleshooting
C
The picture seems to be constantly moving.
1. The monitor has lost its vertical sync. Adjust the monitor’s vertical
sync.
2. Move away any objects, such as another monitor or fan, that
may be creating a magnetic field around the display.
3. Make sure your video card’s output frequencies are supported
by this monitor.
The screen seems to be constantly wavering.
1. If the monitor is close to another monitor, the adjacent monitor
may need to be turned off. Fluorescent lights adjacent to the
monitor may also cause screen wavering.
Power Supply
When the computer is turned on, nothing happens.
1. Check that one end of the AC power cord is plugged into a live
outlet and the other end properly plugged into the back of the
system.
2. Make sure that the voltage selection switch on the back panel is
set for the correct type of voltage you are using.
3. The power cord may have a “short” or “open”. Inspect the cord
and install a new one if necessary.
147
C
Troubleshooting
Hard Drive
Hard disk failure.
1. Make sure the correct drive type for the hard disk drive has
been entered in the BIOS.
2. If the system is configured with two hard drives, make sure the
bootable (first) hard drive is configured as Master and the second hard drive is configured as Slave. The master hard drive
must have an active/bootable partition.
Excessively long formatting period.
1. If your hard drive takes an excessively long period of time to
format, it is likely a cable connection problem. However, if your
hard drive has a large capacity, it will take a longer time to
format.
Serial Port
The serial device (modem, printer) doesn’t output anything or is
outputting garbled characters.
1. Make sure that the serial device’s power is turned on and that
the device is on-line.
2. Verify that the device is plugged into the correct serial port on
the rear of the computer.
3. Verify that the attached serial device works by attaching it to a
serial port that is working and configured correctly. If the serial
device does not work, either the cable or the serial device has a
problem. If the serial device works, the problem may be due to
the onboard I/O or the address setting.
4. Make sure the COM settings and I/O address are configured
correctly.
148
Troubleshooting
C
Keyboard
Nothing happens when a key on the keyboard was pressed.
1. Make sure the keyboard is properly connected.
2. Make sure there are no objects resting on the keyboard and
that no keys are pressed during the booting process.
System Board
1. Make sure the add-in card is seated securely in the expansion
slot. If the add-in card is loose, power off the system, re-install
the card and power up the system.
2. Check the jumper settings to ensure that the jumpers are properly set.
3. Verify that all memory modules are seated securely into the
memory sockets.
4. Make sure the memory modules are in the correct locations.
5. If the board fails to function, place the board on a flat surface
and seat all socketed components. Gently press each component
into the socket.
6. If you made changes to the BIOS settings, re-enter setup and
load the BIOS defaults.
