1. JP14 Clear CMOS

You can clear CMOS to restore system default setting. To clear the CMOS, follow the procedure below.

1. Turn off the system and unplug the AC power.

2. Remove ATX power cable from connector PWR2.

3. Locate JP14 and short pins 2-3 for a few seconds.

4. Return JP14 to its normal setting by shorting pin 1 & pin 2.

5. Connect ATX power cable back to connector PWR2.

2. JP28 Keyboard/Mouse Wake-up Jumper

This motherboard provides keyboard / mouse wake-up function. You can use JP28 to enable or disable this function, which could resume your system from suspend mode with keyboard or mouse. The factory default setting is set to “Disable”(1-2), and you may enable this function by setting the jumper to 2-3.

3. Installing Processor

This socket supports Micro-FC-PGA2 package CPU, which is the latest CPU package developed by Intel. Other forms of CPU package are impossible to be fitted in.

CPU socket lever

1.

Pull up the CPU socket lever and up to

90-degree angle.

2.

Locate Pin 1 in the socket and look for a (golden) cut edge on the CPU upper interface.

Match Pin 1 and cut edge.

Then insert the CPU into the socket.

3.

Press down the CPU socket lever and finish CPU installation.

Note: If you do not match the CPU socket Pin 1 and CPU cut edge well, you may damage the CPU.

4. Installing CPU & System Fan

Plug in the CPU fan cable to the 3-pin CPUFAN1 connector. If you have chassis fan, you can also plug it in SYSFAN2 or SYSFAN3 connector.

5. Setting CPU Voltage & Frequency

Setting CPU Core Voltage

This motherboard supports CPU VID function. The CPU core voltage will be automatically detected.

Setting CPU Frequency

This motherboard is CPU jumper-less design, you can set CPU frequency through the

BIOS setup, and no jumpers or switches are needed. The default setting is "table select mode". You can adjust the FSB from "CPU Host/SDRAM/PCI Clock" for overclocking.

6. Memory & AGP Voltage Adjustment

With our considerate design, you can adjust memory and AGP voltage in BIOS. The memory voltage range is from 2.5V to 2.7V and the AGP voltage is from 1.5V to 1.6V.

Note: You will have to take your own risk to adjust those voltages.

8. S/PDIF Connector

S/PDIF Cable

S/PDIF Module

Pin1

S/PDIF (Sony/Philips Digital Interface) is a latest audio transfer file format that provides impressive quality through optical fiber and allows you to enjoy digital audio instead of analog. Normally there are two S/PDIF outputs as shown, one for RCA connector, the most common one used for consumer audio products, and the other for optical connector with a even better audio quality. Through a specific audio cable, you can connect the

S/PDIF connector to a S/PDIF audio module bearing S/PDIF digital output. However, you must have a S/PDIF supported speaker with S/PDIF digital input to make the most of this function.

7. Front Audio Connector

If the housing has been designed with an audio port on the front panel, you’ll be able to connect onboard audio to front panel through this connector. By the way, please remove the jumper caps from the Front Audio Connector before you connect the cable. Do not remove the yellow jumper caps if your housing doesn’t have an audio port on the front panel.

9. Die-Hard BIOS and JP24

Many viruses have been found lately that they may destroy bios code and data area. This motherboard implements a very effective hardware protection method without any software or BIOS coding involved, therefore it is 100% virus free. You can also choose whether you want to boot your system from BIOS 1 or BIOS2 by setting JP24. When it sets to pin1-2, you can boot your system from BIOS 1 and boot from BIOS 2 when you set it to pin2-3.

11. Dr. Voice and JP15/16

Dr. Voice II is the second version of Dr. Voice. It can identify what kind of problems have occurred in the operating system. It can also clearly “tell” you whether there is a component issue or an installed issue, such as CPU, memory module, VGA, PCI add-on card, FDD,

HDD or keyboard by voice. The Dr. Voice II provides four kinds of language versions,

English , German , Japanese and Chinese for your choices. You can select preferred language version by JP15 & JP16 jumpers. However, if you want to disable this function, you may also set JP2 to decide either you wish the voice coming out from the buzzer or from your audio speaker. Moreover, the sound volume of Dr. Voice II can be adjusted from the speaker.

JP16 Pin 1

JP15 Pin 1

12. JP2 Dr. Voice Output Jumper

This motherboard comes with another considerate option that allows you to control the voice output. You can choose to let the voice come out from the PC buzzer on the board by setting

JP2 to pin 1-2, or have the voice out from audio speaker by setting JP2 to pin 2-3.

13. Support Six USB2.0 Connectors

This motherboard provides six USB ports to connect USB devices such as mouse, keyboard, modem, printer, etc. There are four ports on the back panel. You can use proper cables to connect USB devices from back panel or connect USB header on the board to the front panel of chassis.

14. Power-on and Load BIOS Setup

After you finish jumper settings and connect correct cables, power on and enter the BIOS Setup. Press <Del> during POST (Power On Self Test).

Choose "Load Setup Defaults" for recommended optimal performance.

16. Installing Onboard Sound Driver

This motherboard comes with RealTek ALC650 AC97 CODEC . This audio driver supports Windows 98SE and upper Windows OS; you can find the audio driver from the

Bonus Pack CD auto-run menu.

Warning: Please avoid of using "Load

Turbo Defaults", unless you are sure your system components (CPU, DRAM,

HDD, etc.) are good enough for turbo setting.

15. AOpen Bonus Pack

You can use the autorun menu of Bonus CD. Choose the utility and driver and select model name. After selecting the model name, you can install its AGP, IDE, Audio, LAN and USB2.0 drivers from this CD.

17. BIOS Upgrade

You may accomplish BIOS upgrade procedure with EzWinFlash by the following steps, and it’s STRONGLY RECOMMENDED to close all the applications before you start the upgrading.

1.

2.

Download the new version of BIOS package zip file from AOpen official web site.

(ex: http://www.aopen.com

)

Unzip the download BIOS package (ex: WAX454DM102.ZIP) with WinZip

( http://www.winzip.com

) in Windows environment.

3.

4.

5.

6.

7.

Save the unzipped files into a folder, for example, WAX454DM102.EXE &

WAX454DM102.BIN.

Double click on WAX454DM102.EXE, EzWinFlash will detect the model name and

BIOS version of your motherboard. If you had got the wrong BIOS, you will not be allowed to proceed with the flash steps.

You may select preferred language in the main menu, then click [Start Flash] to start the BIOS upgrade procedure.

EzWinFlash will complete all the process automatically, and a dialogue box will pop up to ask you to restart Windows. You may click [YES] to reboot Windows.

Press <Del> at POST to enter BIOS setup , choose "Load Setup Defaults", then

“Save & Exit Setup”. Done!

It is strongly recommended NOT to turn off the power or run any application during FLASH PROCESS.

If you encounter any trouble while booting your system, follow the procedures accordingly to resolve the bl

Start

Turn off the power and unplug the AC power cable, then remove all of the addon cards and cables, including VGA, IDE, FDD, COM1,

COM2 and Printer.

Make sure if the jumper settings for CPU and DRAMs are correct.

Clear CMOS.

Install the VGA card. Then connect your monitor and keyboard.

Turn on the power, and check if the power supply and CPU fan work properly.

No

The problem was probably caused by power supply or motherboard failure. Please contact your reseller or local distributor for repairing.

Yes

Check if there is display.

Yes

No

Perhaps your VGA card or monitor is defective.

Press Ctrl, and Alt key at the same time, hold them and then press Del to see if the system reboots.

Yes

During system rebooting, press Del to enter BIOS Setup. Choose

“Load Setup Default".

No

It is very possible that your keyboard is defective.

No

The problem should be caused by the

IDE cables or HDD itself.

Turn off the system and re-connect the IDE cable.

Check if the system can reboot successfully.

Yes

Re-install Windows 95, Windows 98 or Windows NT.
