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.

10. S/PDIF (Sony/Philips Digital Interface) Connector

S/PDIF (Sony/Philips Digital Interface) is a newest audio transfer file format, which provides impressive audio quality through optical fiber and allows you to enjoy digital audio instead of analog audio. Through a specific audio cable, you can connect the S/PDIF connector to other end of the S/PDIF audio module, which bears S/PDIF digital output. 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 better audio quality.

Same as outputs, you can also connect RCA or optical audio products to input connectors on the module and have the voice or music come out from your computer. However, you must have a S/PDIF supported speaker/amplifier/decoder with S/PDIF digital input/output to connect to the S/PDIF digital input/output to make the most out of this function.

11. Super 5.1 Channel Audio Effects

This motherboard comes with an ALC650 CODEC, which supports high quality of 5.1

Channel audio effects, bringing you a brand new audio experience. On the strength of the innovative design of ALC650, you're able to use standard line-jacks for surround audio output without connecting any external module. To apply this function, you have to install the audio driver in the Bonus Pack CD as well as an audio application supporting 5.1 Channel. Picture bellow represents the standard location of all speakers in 5.1Channel sound track. Please connect the plug of your front speakers to the green “Speaker out” port, rear speakers’ plug to the blue “Line in” port and both of the center and subwoofer speakers to the red “MIC in” port.

12. COM2 Connector

This motherboard provides two serial ports. One of them is on back panel connector, and the other is on the upper middle of board. With proper cable, you can connect it to the back panel of chassis.

13. Support 10/100 Mbps LAN Onboard

On the strength of RealTek RTL8100BL LAN controller on board, which is a highly-integrated

Platform LAN Connect device, it provides 10/100M bps Ethernet for office and home use, the

Ethernet RJ45 connector is located on top of USB connectors. The green LED indicates the link mode, it lights when linking to network and blinking when transferring data. The orange

LED indicates the transfer mode, and it lights when data is transferring in 100Mbps mode. To enable or disable this function, you may simply adjust it through BIOS.

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 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 CD

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, IAA, Audio, LAN and USB2.0 drivers from this CD.

17. BIOS Upgrade under Windows Environment

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

2. download BIOS package (ex: WMX4GVR102.ZIP) with WinZip ( http://www.winzip.com

) in Windows environment.

Save the unzipped files into a folder, for example, WMX4GVR102.EXE &

WMX4GVR102.BIN.

3.

4.

Double click on WMX4GVR102.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

5.

BIOS upgrade procedure.

EzWinFlash will complete all the process automatically, and a dialogue box will pop up

6. 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.

Warning: The upgrade of new BIOS will permanently replace your original BIOS content after flashing. The original BIOS setting and Win95/Win98 PnP information will be refreshed and you probably need to re-configure your system.

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

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.
