1-10 Introduction

This chapter describes how to set up and turn on/off your system. Just follow the steps in this chapter.

1. Selecting a Location

Before you set up your computer, it is important to choose a safe and convenient location that provides the following:

● A large, sturdy desk or table strong enough to support the weight of your system and all of its components.

● A flat and hard surface. Soft surfaces like beds and carpeted floors attract static electricity, which can erase data on your disks, damage the computer’s circuitry, and prevent proper ventilation.

● Good air circulation. Leave several inches of space around the computer so air can move freely.

● Moderate environment conditions. Select a cool, dry area and protect your computer from extremes in temperature, humidity, dust, and smoke. Avoid direct sunlight or any other source of heat.

● Appropriate power sources. To prevent static charges, connect all your equipment to three-hole, grounded outlets. You need one outlet for the computer, one for the monitor, and an additional outlet for a printer and any other peripheral devices.

● No electromagnetic interference. Do not place your system too close to any electrical device, such as a telephone, which generates an electromagnetic field.

Setting Up Your System 2-1

2. Checking the Voltage Selection

A power supply is integrated into the system to provide power to the mainboard, option cards, and peripheral devices. The power selection switch on the system back panel can be used to set the power supply to operate at 115V or 220V.

To verify that your system has the correct setting for your environment, check the voltage selection switch.

WARNING

If you set the voltage selection switch incorrectly, your system will have the serious damage. Verify that the switch is set correctly before you power on your system.

Using a tool such as an opened paper clip, slide the voltage selection switch to the correct voltage position.

NOTES

According to processor type, your actual process may be slightly different from one described below.

There are two types, fan and heatsink type and heatsink type, of the processor.

1. Remove the system cover as described in "Removing the Cover" in Chapter 5.

2. See the picture in "Mainboard Overview" in Chapter 5 to figure out the location of the processor socket.

3. If there is a processor chip on the socket, you must remove it from the socket.

When you remove the processor, first unplug the connector from the CPU fan connector (fan and heatsink type only) and remove the heatsink by releasing both tabs on the heatsink that secure the heatsink to the socket.

Installing the 5.25-inch Device in the

Peripheral Bay

Your system has two 5.25-inch horizontal peripheral bays. If only one device (e.g.,

CD/DVD-ROM drive) is installed in the system’s 5.25-inch peripheral bay, you can add an optional device such as a CD/DVD/CDRW/COMBO drive, hard disk drive,

LS-120 drive, or ZIP drive in the empty peripheral bay.

To install an optional device in the bay, follow the below steps.

1. Remove the cover according to the instructions in “Removing the Cover” in

Chapter 5.

2. Remove the HDD bracket from the system chassis. For more information, see

“Replacing a Hard Disk Drive” in this chapter.

NOTE

If you want to install a 3.5-inch hard disk drive, you must purchase the 5.25-inch dock or mounting bracket and attach it to your 3.5-inch hard disk drive to install your hard disk drive for the 5.25-inch bay.

3. Remove the front panel from the chassis by pressing the four tabs.

6-12 Installing and Removing Board Options and Drives

CHAPTER 6

6. Make you sure that jumpers of optional drive must be set correctly.

NOTE

As a hard disk drive, most optional devices’ jumpers must be set correctly to work properly with your system. For example, if there are two drives to one E-IDE interface cable, one drive must have master drive jumper setting, and the other drive must have slave drive jumper setting.

If you want to install an optional drive to the 5.25 inch bay, you must use secondary E-IDE drive connector. If your CD/DVD ROM is set to master, the optional drive’s jumper must be set to slave.

7. Slide the device into the bay and secure it to the computer case with four screws.

8. Connect the power and interface cables to the device installed.

11. Replace the system cover according to the instructions in "Replacing the Cover" in Chapter 5.

Replacing the Battery

The 3 V, coin-cell CR2032-type battery on the mainboard provides power to the real-time clock and CMOS RAM.

The battery approximately has three years lifetime when the system is off.

To replace the battery, follow the below steps.

1. Enter the Setup program and make a printed copy of the Setup screens.

2. Turn off your system and devices connected to the system.

3. Remove the system cover.

4. Take the battery out from the socket.

CHAPTER 6

5. Insert the new battery with the "+" side facing up into the battery socket.

6. Replace the system cover.

7. Turn on your system, run the Setup program, and set the date and time again.

Restore any system configuration information that was lost while replacing the battery according to the copy made in step 1.

After Installing Options

After you install or remove drives, if necessary, be sure to run Setup program to update the configuration of your system. See Chapter 4 for detail information.

If you installed a hard disk drive on which you want to install an operating system, install the operating system, drivers, and application programs on the hard disk drive using the Restore CD after running FDISK. Follow the instructions in Chapter 8.

If you installed a hard disk drive on which you want to install an operating system, install the operating system on the hard disk drive. See "Using the Restore CD" in

Chapter 8.

If you installed new optional equipment and Windows ME is already installed in your system, you need to have Windows ME detect it. See Windows ME manual and the manual that came with your optional equipment for detail information.
