Precaution Before Start
Static Electricity Damage:
Static electricity can easily damage your motherboard. Observing
a few basic precautions can help safeguard against damage that
could result in expensive repairs. Follow the simple measures
below to protect your equipment from static electricity damage.
1.
2.
3.
4.
Keep the motherboard and other system components in their anti-static
packaging until you are ready to install them.
Touch a grounded surface before you remove any system component from
its protective anti-static packaging. Unpacking and installation should be
done on a grounded, anti-static mat. The operator should be wearing an antistatic wristband, grounded at the same points as the anti-static mat.
After removing the motherboard from its original packaging, only place it
on a grounded, anti-static surface component side up. Immediately inspect
the board for damage. Due to shifting during shipping, it is suggested that
the installer press down on the entire socket ICs to ensure they are properly
seated. Do this only with the board placed on a firm flat surface.
During configuration and installation touch a grounded surface frequently
to discharge any static electrical charge that may have built up in your body.
The best precaution is to wear a grounded wrist strap. Avoid touching the
components When handling the motherboard or an adapter card. Handle the
motherboard and adapter cards either by the edges or by the adapter card
case-mounting bracket.
Misplaced Jumper Damage:
There are critical headers used for connectors or power sources.
These are clearly marked separately from the jumpers listed in
Motherboard Layout. Incorrect setting jumpers and connectors
may lead to damage to your motherboard. Please pay special
attention not to connect these headers in wrong directions.

4. BIOS SETUP
4 BIOS Setup
The IN620 motherboard uses AWARD
BIOS, which is stored in a Flash EEPROM
and can be upgraded by a floppy disk-based
program. The BIOS has a built-in Setup
Program that allows users to modify the
basic system configuration settings. The
settings are then stored in a dedicated
battery-backed memory, called CMMOS
RAM that retains the information when the
power is turned off. The BIOS provides critical low-level support for the system’s
central processing, memory and I/O subsystems. The AWARD BIOS has been
customized by adding important, nonstandard, features such as virus and password
protection, power management, and detailed fine-tuning of the chipset which controls
the system. The remainder of this manual is intended to guide you through the process
of configuring your system using the BIOS Setup.
4.1 BIOS Setup
The AWARD BIOS is immediately activated when you first turn on the computer. The
BIOS reads system configuration information in CMOS RAM and begins the process of
checking the system and configuring it through the power-on self test (POST). When
these preliminaries are finished, the BIOS seek an operation system on the data storage
devices (hard drive, floppy drive, etc.). The BIOS launches the operating system and
hands over control of system operation to it.
To start Setup, press the <Del> key during boot-up before or while a message similar
to this appears briefly at the bottom of the screen during POST (Power On Self Test):
Press DEL if you want to enter SETUP
If the above message disappears before you have responded and you still wish to enter
Setup, reboot the system to try again by pressing the “RESET” button on the system
case. You may also restart by simultaneously pressing the <Ctrl>, <Alt> and <Delete>
keys.
Press F1 to continue, DEL to enter SETUP

4.1.3
In Case of Problems
If after making and saving system changes with Setup, you discover that your computer
no longer is able to boot, the Award BIOS supports an override to the CMOS settings
that resets your system to its default configuration.
The best advice is to alter only settings that you thoroughly understand. In particular,
do
not change settings in the Chipset screen without a good reason. BCM Advanced
Research Inc. or your system manufacturer for the best performance and reliability has
carefully chosen the Chipset defaults. Even a seemingly small change to the Chipset
setup may cause the system to become unstable.

4.3.3
Hard Disks
The BIOS supports up to four IDE drives. This section does not show information
about other IDE devices, such as a CD-ROM drive, or about other hard drive types,
such as SCSI drives.
41
4. BIOS SETUP
NOTE: We recommend that you select type AUTO for all drives.
The BIOS can automatically detect the specifications and optimal operating mode of
almost all IDE hard drives. When you select type AUTO for a hard drive, the BIOS
detects its specifications during POST, every time the system boots.
If you do not want to select drive type AUTO, other methods of selecting the drive type
are available:
1) Match the specifications of your installed IDE hard drive(s) with the
preprogrammed values for drive types 1 through 45.
2)
Select USER and enter values into each drive parameter field.
3)
Use the IDE HDD AUTO DECTECTION function in Setup.
Here is a brief explanation of drive specifications:
•
Type: The BIOS contains a table of pre-defined drive types. Each defined drive
type has a specified number of cylinders, number of heads, write precompensation
factor, landing zone, and number of sectors, Drives whose specifications do not
accommodate any pre-defined type are classified as type USER.
•
Size: Disk drive capacity (approximate). Note that this size is usually slightly
greater than the size of a formatted disk given by a disk-checking program.
•
Cyls: Number of cylinders
•
Head: Number of herds
•
Precomp: Write precompensation cylinder
•
Landz: Landing zone
•
Sector: Number of sectors
•
Mode: Auto, Normal, large, or LBA
•
Auto: The BIOS automatically determines the optimal mode.
•
Normal: Maximum number of cylinders, heads, and sectors supported are
1024, 16 and 63.
42
4. BIOS SETUP
•
Large: For drives that do not support LBA and have more than 1024 cylinders.
•
LBA (Logical Block Addressing): During drive accesses, the IDE controller
Transforms the data address described by sector, head, and cylinder number
into a physical block address, significantly improving data transfer rates. For
drives with greater than 1024 cylinders.

POST does not stop for diskette drive errors, but stops for all
other errors.
POST does not stop for a keyboard or disk error, but stops for
all other errors.
Memory
You cannot change any values in the Memory fields; they are only for your information.
The fields show the total installed random access memory (RAM) and amounts
allocated to base memory, extended memory, and other (high) memory, RAM is
counted in kilobytes (KB: approximately one thousand bytes) and megabytes (MB:
approximately one million bytes).
RAM is the computer’s working memory, where the computer stores programs and
data currently being used, so they are accessible to the CPU. Modern personal
computers may contain up to 64MB, 128MB, or more.
Base Memory
Typically 640 KB. Also called conventional memory. The DOS operating system and
conventional applications use this area.
Extended Memory
Above the 1-MB boundary. Early IBM personal computers could not use memory
above 1 MB, but current PCs and their software can use extended memory.
Other Memory
Between 640 KB and 1 MB; often called High memory. DOS may load terminate-and-
stay-resident (TSR) programs, such as device drivers, in this area, to free as much
conventional memory as possible for applications. Lines in your CONFIG.SYS file
that start with LOADHIGH load programs into high memory
Total memory
System total memory is the sum of base memory, extended memory, and other memory.

Virus Warning
When enabled, you receive a warning message if a program (specifically, a virus)
attempts to write to the boot sector or the partition table of the hard disk drive. You
should then run an anti-virus program. Keep in mind that this feature protects only the
boot sector, not the entire hard drive.
NOTE: Many disk diagnostic programs that access the boot sector table can trigger
the virus-warning message. If you plan to run such a program, we recommend that
you first disable the virus warning.

4.4.13 HEllo
Software that resides in a read-only memory (ROM) chip on a device is called
firmware. The Award BIOS permits shadowing of firmware such as the system BIOS,
video BIOS, and similar operating instructions that come with some expansion
peripherals, such as, for example, a SCSI adapter.
Shadowing copy firmware from ROM into system RAM, where the CPU can read it
through the 16-bit or 32-bit DRAM bus. Firmware not shadowed must be read by the
system through the 8-bit x-bus. Shadowing improves the performance of the system
BIOS and similar ROM firmware for expansion peripherals, but it also reduces the
amount of high memory (640KB to 1 MB) available for loading device drivers, etc.
Enable shadowing into each section of memory separately. Many system designers
hardwire shadowing of the system BIOS and eliminate a System BIOS Shadow option.
Video BIOS shadows into memory area C0000-C7FFF> The remaining areas shown
on the BIOS Features Setup screen may be occupied by other expansion card firmware.
If an expansion peripheral in your system contains ROM-based firmware, you need to
know the address range the ROM occupies to shadow it into the correct area of RAM.

Select Enabled allows caching of the video BIOS ROM at F0000h-FFFFFh, resulting
in better system performance. However, if any program writes to this memory area, a
system error may result.

4.5.5
8 Bit I/O Recovery Time
The recovery time is the length of time, measured in CPU clocks, which the system
will delay after the completion of an input/output request. This delay takes place
because the CPU is operating so much faster than the input/output bus that the CPU
must be delayed to allow for the completion of the I/O.
This item allows you to determine the recovery time allowed for 8 bit I/O. Choices are
from NA, 1 to 8 CPU clocks.
4.5.6
Video RAM Cacheable
Select Enabled allows caching of the video RAM, resulting in better system
performance. However, if any program writes to this memory area, a system error may
result.
4.5.7
16 Bit I/O Recovery Time
This item allows you to determine the recovery time allowed for 16 bit I/O. Choices
are from NA, 1 to 4 CPU clocks.
4.5.8
Memory Hole At 15M-16M
In order to improve performance, certain space in memory can be reserved for ISA
cards. This memory must be mapped into the memory space below 16 MB. You can
reserve this area of system memory for ISA adapter ROM. When that area is reserved
it cannot be cached. The user information of peripherals that need to use this area of
system memory usually discusses their memory requirements.
4.5.9
Passive Release
When Enabled, CPU to PCI bus accesses are allowed during passive release.
Otherwise, the arbiter only accepts another PCI master access to local DRAM.
4.5.10 Delayed Transaction
The chipset has an embedded 32-bit posted write buffer to support delay transactions
cycles. Select Enabled to support compliance with PCI specification version 2.1.
4.5.11 AGP Aperture Size (MB)
Select the size of the Accelerated Graphics Port (AGP) aperture. The aperture is a
portion of the PCI memory address range dedicated for graphics memory address space.
Host cycles that hit the aperture range are forwarded to the AGP without any
translation. See www.agpforum.org for AGP information.

4.5.12 Power-Up State
It specifies how the computer responds following a power failure. Stay Off keeps
power off until power button pressed. Last State restores previous power state before a
power failure. Power On restores power without restoring previous power state.
4.5.13 Current System Temp
This field displays the current system temperature, if your computer contains a
monitoring system.

may select the percent of time that the clock runs.
4.6.11 VGA Active Monitor
When Enabled, any video activity restarts the global timer for Standby mode.
4.6.12 Soft-Off by PWR-BTTN
When this feature set to “Delay 4 sec.” , the system will become suspend once the
Power Switch be pressed within 4 second, and the system will Power Off once the
Power Switch be pressed over 4 second. If it set to “Instant Off”, the system will
unconditional Power Off once the Power Switch be pressed.
4.6.13 CPUFAN Off In Suspend
Select Enabled allows CPU FAN off in suspend mode.
4.6.14 Resume by Ring
An input signal on the serial Ring Indicator (RI) line (in other words, an incoming call
on the modem) awakens the system from a soft off state.
4.6.15 Wake Up On LAN
This option specifies whether the computer responds to an incoming call or not. WakeOn Lan requires a PCI add-in network interface card with remote wakeup capabilities.
4.6.16 IRQ8 Break Suspend
You can turn On or Off monitoring of IRQ8 (the Real Time Clock) so it does not
awaken the system from Suspend mode.
