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.

Introduction
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.
S/PDIF
SERIAL ATA Serial ATA is a storage interface that is compliant
with SATA 1.0 specification. With speed of up to
3Gb/s, it improves hard drive performance faster than the standard
parallel ATA whose data transfer rate is 100MB/s. G7B630-NR
allows configuring RAID on Serial ATA drives. It supports RAID 0,
RAID 1, RAID 5 and RAID 10.
IDE

ports. USB 1.1 supports 12Mb/second bandwidth
while USB 2.0 suppor ts 480Mb/second bandwidth providing a
marked improvement in device transfer speeds between your computer and a wide range of simultaneously accessible external Plug
and Play peripherals.
USB
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.
wake-on-lan
Important:
The 5V_standby power source of your power supply must support ≥720mA.
wake-on-PS/2
This function allows you to use the PS/2
keyboard or PS/2 mouse to power-on the
system.
Important:
The 5V_standby power source of your power supply must support ≥720mA.

Introduction
This function allows you to use a USB keyboard or USB mouse to wake up a system
from the S3 (STR - Suspend To RAM) state.
wake-on-USB
Important:
If you are using the Wake-On-USB Keyboard/Mouse function for
2 USB ports, the 5V_standby power source of your power supply must support ≥ 1.5A. For 3 or more USB ports, the
5V_standby power source of your power supply must support
≥2A.
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 support OS Direct Power Management. Currently, only Windows® 2000/XP supports the ACPI function. 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® 2000/XP 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.
• The 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. Before you install the fan / heat sink, you must apply a thermal
paste onto the top of the CPU. The thermal paste is usually
supplied when you purchase the CPU or fan heat sink assembly.
Do not spread the paste all over the surface. When you later
place the heat sink on top of the CPU, the compound will disperse evenly.
Do not apply the paste if the fan / heat sink already has a patch
of thermal paste on its underside. Peel the strip that covers the
paste before you place the fan / heat sink on top of the CPU.
26

2. Place the heat sink on top of the CPU. The 4 studs around the
heat sink which are used to secure the heat sink onto the system board must match the 4 mounting holes around the socket.
Position each stud so that the groove faces the heat sink then
push it down firmly until it clicks into place.
Note:
You will not be able to secure the fan and heat sink assembly in place if the groove is not facing the heat sink.

Virus Warning
This field protects the boot sector and partition table of your hard
disk drive. When this field is enabled, the Award BIOS will monitor
the boot sector and partition table of the hard disk drive. If an
attempt is made to write to the boot sector or partition table of
the hard disk drive, the BIOS will halt the system and an error
message will appear.
After seeing the error message, if necessary, you will be able to run
an anti-virus program to locate and remove the problem before any
damage is done.
Many disk diagnostic programs which attempt to access the boot
sector table will cause the warning message to appear. If you are
running such a program, we recommend that you first disable this
field. Also, disable this field if you are installing or running certain
operating systems like Windows® 2000/XP or the operating system
may not install nor work.

sequence of the drive selected. Set “Boot Other Device” to Enabled
if you wish to boot from another device.
Boot Up Floppy Seek
When enabled, the BIOS will check whether the floppy disk drive installed is 40 or 80 tracks. Note that the BIOS cannot distinguish between 720K, 1.2M, 1.44M and 2.88M drive types as they are all 80
tracks. When disabled, the BIOS will not search for the type of floppy
disk drive by track number. Note that there will not be any warning
message if the drive installed is 360KB.
Boot Up NumLock Status
This allows you to determine the default state of the numeric
keypad. By default, the system boots up with NumLock on wherein
the function of the numeric keypad is the number keys. When set to
Off, the function of the numeric keypad is the arrow keys.

Gate A20 Option
This entry allows you to select how gate A20 is handled. Gate A20
is a device used to address memory above 1 Mbyte. Initially, gate A20
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.
Typematic Rate Setting
Disabled Continually holding down a key on your keyboard will
cause the BIOS to report that the key is down.
Enabled The BIOS will not only report that the key is down,
but will first wait for a moment, and, if the key is still
down, it will begin to report that the key has been
depressed repeatedly. For example, you would use such
a feature to accelerate cursor movements with the arrow keys. You can then select the typematic rate and
typematic delay in the “Typematic Rate (Chars/Sec)”
and “Typematic Delay (Msec)” fields below.
Typematic Rate (Chars/Sec)
This field allows you to select the rate at which the keys are accelerated.
Typematic Delay (Msec)
This field allows you to select the delay between when the key was
first depressed and when the acceleration begins.
Security Option
This field determines when the system will prompt for the password
- everytime the system boots or only when you enter the BIOS
setup. Set the password in the Set Supervisor/User Password
submenu.
System The system will not boot and access to Setup will be
denied unless the correct password is entered at the

System BIOS Cacheable
When this field is enabled, accesses to the system BIOS ROM addressed at F0000H-FFFFFH are cached, provided that the cache
controller is enabled. The larger the range of the Cache RAM, the
higher the efficiency of the system.
Memory Hole At 15M-16M
In order to improve system performance, certain space in memory
can be reserved for ISA cards. This memory must be mapped into
the memory space below 16MB. When enabled, the CPU assumes
the 15-16MB memory range is allocated to the hidden ISA address
range instead of the actual system DRAM. When disabled, the CPU
assumes the 15-16MB address range actually contains DRAM
memory. If more than 16MB of system memory is installed, this field
must be disabled to provide contiguous system memory.

drive, PIO allows the BIOS to tell the controller what it wants and
then let the controller and the CPU perform the complete task by
themselves. Your system supports five modes, 0 (default) to 4, which
primarily differ in timing. When Auto is selected, the BIOS will select
the best available mode after checking your drive.

RAID

Chapter 5 - RAID (G7B630-NR only)
The system board allows configuring RAID on Serial ATA drives. It supports RAID
0, RAID 1, RAID 5 and RAID 10.
RAID Levels
RAID 0 (Striped Disk Array without Fault Tolerance)
RAID 0 uses two new identical hard disk drives to read and write data in parallel,
interleaved stacks. Data is divided into stripes and each stripe is written alternately between two disk drives. This improves the I/O performance of the drives
at different channel; however it is not fault tolerant. A failed disk will result in
data loss in the disk array.
RAID 1 (Mirroring Disk Array with Fault Tolerance)
RAID 1 copies and maintains an identical image of the data from one drive to
the other drive. If a drive fails to function, the disk array management software
directs all applications to the other drive since it contains a complete copy of the
drive’s data. This enhances data protection and increases fault tolerance to the
entire system. Use two new drives or an existing drive and a new drive but the
size of the new drive must be the same or larger than the existing drive.
RAID 5
RAID 5 stripes data and parity information across hard drives. It is fault tolerant
and provides better hard drive performance and more storage capacity.
RAID 10 (Mirroring and Striping)
RAID 10 is a combination of data striping and data mirroring providing the benefits of both RAID 0 and RAID 1. Use four new drives or an existing drive and
three new drives for this configuration.
127

RAID
Settings
To enable the RAID function, the following settings are required.
1. Connect the Serial ATA drives.
2. Configure Serial ATA in the Award BIOS.
3. Configure RAID in the RAID BIOS.
4. Install the RAID driver during OS installation.
5. Install the Intel Matrix Storage Manager utility.
Step 1: Connect the Serial ATA Drives
Refer to chapter 2 for details on connecting the Serial ATA drives.
Important:
1. Make sure you have installed the Serial ATA drives and connected the
data cables otherwise you won’t be able to enter the RAID BIOS utility.
2. Treat the cables with extreme caution especially while creating RAID.
A damaged cable will ruin the entire installation process and operating system. The system will not boot and you will lost all data in the
hard drives. Please give special attention to this warning because
there is no way of recovering back the data.
Step 2: Configure Serial ATA in the Award BIOS
1. Power-on the system then press <Del> to enter the main menu of the Award
BIOS.
2. Configure Serial ATA in the appropriate fields.
3. Save the changes in the Save & Exit Setup menu.
4. Reboot the system.
Step 3: Configure RAID in the RAID BIOS
When the system powers-up and all drives have been detected, the Intel RAID
BIOS status message screen will appear. Press the <Ctrl> and <I> keys simultaneously to enter the utility. The utility allows you to build a RAID system on
Serial ATA drives.
128

Step 4: Install the RAID Driver During OS Installation
The RAID driver must be installed during the Windows® XP or Windows® 2000 installation using the F6 installation method. This is required in order to install the
operating system onto a hard drive or RAID volume when in RAID mode or onto
a hard drive when in AHCI mode.
1.
Start Windows Setup by booting from the installation CD.
2.
Press <F6> when prompted in the status line with the ‘Press F6 if you need
to install a third party SCSI or RAID driver’ message.
3.
Press <S> to “Specify Additional Device”.
4.
At this point you will be prompted to insert a floppy disk containing the RAID
driver. Insert the RAID driver diskette.
5.
Locate for the drive where you inserted the diskette then select RAID or AHCI
controller that corresponds to your BIOS setup. Press <Enter> to confirm.
You have successfully installed the driver. However you must continue installing
the OS. Leave the floppy disk in the floppy drive until the system reboots itself
because Windows setup will need to copy the files again from the floppy disk
to the Windows installation folders. After Windows setup has copied these files
again, remove the floppy diskette so that Windows setup can reboot as needed.

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.
137
C
Troubleshooting
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.
Floppy Drive
The computer cannot access the floppy drive.
1. The floppy diskette may not be formatted. Format the diskette
and try again.
2. The diskette may be write-protected. Use a diskette that is not
write-protected.
3. You may be writing to the wrong drive. Check the path statement to make sure you are writing to the targeted drive.
4. There is not enough space left on the diskette. Use another
diskette with adequate storage space.
138
Troubleshooting
C
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.
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.
Parallel Port
The parallel printer doesn’t respond when you try to print.
1. Make sure that your printer is turned on and that the printer is
on-line.
2. Make sure your software is configured for the right type of
printer attached.
3. Verify that the onboard LPT port’s I/O address and IRQ settings
are configured correctly.
4. Verify that the attached device works by attaching it to a parallel
port that is working and configured correctly. If it works, the
printer can be assumed to be in good condition. If the printer
remains inoperative, replace the printer cable and try again.
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.
139
C
Troubleshooting
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.
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.
