BIOS Setup Information
WADE-8141 series is equipped with the Phoenix (AWARD) BIOS stored in Flash
ROM. These BIOS has a built-in Setup program that allows users to modify the basic
system configuration easily. This type of information is stored in CMOS RAM so that
it is retained during power-off periods. When system is turned on, WADE-8141 series
communicates with peripheral devices and checks its hardware resources against the
configuration information stored in the CMOS memory. If any error is detected, or
the CMOS parameters need to be initially defined, the diagnostic program will
prompt the user to enter the SETUP program. Some errors are significant enough to
abort the start-up.
4.1
Entering Setup
Phoenix-Award BIOS has a built-in setup program that allows users to modify the
basic system configuration. This information is stored in CMOS RAM whose power is
supplied by a battery so that it can retain the setup information even when the power
is turned off. Press Delete when you Power on or Reboot the computer system. (i.e.
After the logo appears at the center of the screen, please press Delete to enter the BIOS
setup program). In the BIOS, make sure that everything is working fine before you try
to optimize it for maximum performance.

CPU Feature
Thermal Management
This BIOS feature controls the activation of the Thermal Monitor’ s automatic mode.
It allows you to determine when the Pentium M’ s Thermal Monitor should be
activated in automatic mode after the system boots. In general, the Thermal Monitor
should not be activated immediately on booting since the processor will be under a
heavy load during the booting process, which results in the sharp rise in die
temperature from its cold state, which leads to the unstable system. Therefore, to
ensure optimal booting performance, the activation of the Thermal Monitor must be
delayed for a set period of time. But how do you possibly know the optimal delay
time? It is recommended that you set this to its lowest value that exceeds the time it
takes to fully boot up your computer.
This item will monitor the CPU thermal to prevent the CPU damage from high
temperature.
TM2 BUS Ratio

TM2 BUS VID
Select Represents the voltage of the throttled performance state that will be initiated
when the on die sensor gose from not hot to hot.
Execute Disable Bit
Select when disable, forces the XD feature flag to always return 0.
CPU L1 & L2 & L3 Cache
Cache memory is much faster than conventional DRAM system memory. These fields
allow you to enable or disable the CPUs Level 1 built-in cache and Level 2 external
cache. Both settings are left as Enabled to significantly enhance the performance of
your computer.
Quick Power On Self Test
Enable this function to reduce the amount of time required to run the POST (Power
On Self Test). BIOS will save time by skipping certain tests during POST. It is
recommended that you disable this setting. Finding a problem during boot up is
better than loosing data during your work.
First/Second/Third/Other Boot Device
Allow you to select the First, Second and Third Boot Device. If your computer is
newly constructed, the next thing you want to do is load the Operating System from
scratch, directly off its CD. Before that, you need to set the First Boot Device to the
CDROM. This instructs the BIOS to boot from the CD drive before trying to boot from
the hard drive, which is still blank.
Boot Up Floppy Seek
This function defines the seek disk drivers during boot up. Disabling seed boot up.
Boot Up NumLock Status
This function defines the keyboard's numberpad as number keys or arrow keys. If it
is set at On the number keys will be activated, if it is set at Off the arrow keys will be
activated.
Gate A20 Option
Select if chipset or keyboard control should control Gate A20.
Typematic Rate Setting
When enabled, you can set the following two-typematic control items. When
disabled, the keyboard controller determines keystrokes arbitrarily in your system.
WADE-8141 User’s Manual

BIOS Setup Information
Typematic Rate (Chars/Sec)
The typematic rate sets the rate at which characters on the screen repeat when a key is
pressed and held down.
Typematic Delay (Msec)
The typematic delay sets how long after you press a key that a character begins
repeating.
APIC Mode
By enabling this option, “MPS version control for OS” can be configured. Disabled
is recommended.
MPS Version Control for OS
The 1.1 version is the older version that supports 8 more IRQs in the Windows NT
environment. Choose the new 1.4 version for Windows 2000 and Windows XP.

select OS/2 as the item value. Otherwise, set the item value to Non-OS/2 for all other
operating systems.
Report No FDD For Win95
The original Windows 95 requires the presence of a floppy. Unless the BIOS tells it to
disregard the absence of the drive, it will generate an error message. For other
operating systems as Win98 etc this field is without relevance.

DRAM Timing Selectable
This item determines DRAM clock/timing using SPD or manual configuration. Make
sure your memory module has SPD (Serial Presence Data), if you want to select the
“By SPD” option.
The choice: Manual、By SPD (default)
CAS Latency Time
CAS is short for column address strobe, which is a kind of signals. When the CPU
needs data from SDRAM, CAS signals will be sent via the CAS line to specify the
column where the data is needed. This controls the time delay (in clock cycles - CLKs)
that passes before the SDRAM starts to carry out a read command after receiving it.
This also determines the number of CLKs for the completion of the first part of a burst
transfer. In other words, the lower the latency, the faster the transaction.
WADE-8141 User’s Manual
4-8
BIOS Setup Information
Note that some SDRAM modules may not be able to handle the lower latency and
will become unstable and lose data. Therefore, set the DRAM CAS Latency Time to 2
for optimal performance if possible but increase it to 2.5 if your system becomes
unstable.
Interestingly, increasing the CAS latency time does have an advantage in that it will
enable the SDRAM to run at a higher clockspeed, thereby giving you an edge in
overclocking your system. So, if you hit a snag while overclocking, try increasing the
CAS latency time.
DRAM RAS# to CAS# Delay
This item allows you to select a delay time between the CAS and RAS strobe signals.
It only applies when DRAM is written to, read from, or refreshed. This field is
adjustable only when “DRAM Timing Selectable” is set to “manual”. This field is
locked when “DRAM Timing Selectable” is set to “By SPD” and is automatically
determined by the system.
The choice: 4、3、2
DRAM RAS# Precharge
This item allows you to select the DRAM RAS# precharge time. The ROW address
strobe must precharge again before DRAM is refreshed. An inadequate configuration
may result in incomplete data. This field is adjustable only when “DRAM Timing
Selectable” is set to “manual”. This field is locked when “DRAM Timing Selectable”
is set to “By SPD” and is automatically determined by the system.
The choice: 4、3、2
MGM Core Frequency
This field sets the frequency of the DRAM memory installed.
The choice: Auto Max 266MHz, 400/266/133/200 MHz, 400/200/100/200 MHz,
400/200/100/133 MHz, 400/266/133/267 MHz.
System BIOS Cacheable
Enabling this function allows caching of the system BIOS ROM at F0000h-FFFFFh,
which results in better system performance. However, if any program writes to this
memory area, a system error may result. It is advisable to leave it in default setting.
Caching the system BIOS results in better performance than shadowing the system
BIOS.
WADE-8141 User’s Manual

BIOS Setup Information
Video BIOS Cacheable
This feature is only valid when the BIOS is shadowed. It enables or disables the
caching of the video BIOS ROM at C0000h~C7FFFh via the L2 cache. This greatly
speeds performance because the OS bypasses the BIOS using the graphics driver to
access the video card’s hardware directly.

BIOS Setup Information
Reset Configuration Data
If you just install a new hardware or modify your computer ' s hardware
configuration, the BIOS will automatically detect the changes and reconfigure the
ESCD(Extended System Configuration Data). Therefore, there is usually no need to
manually force the BIOS to reconfigure the ESCD. However, the occasion may arise
where the BIOS may not be able to detect the hardware changes. A serious resource
conflict may occur and the operating system may not even boot as a result. This is
where the Reset Configuration Data BIOS feature comes in. This BIOS feature allows
you to manually force the BIOS to clear the previously saved ESCD data and
reconfigure the settings. All you need to do is enable this BIOS feature and then
reboot your computer. The new ESCD should resolve the conflict and allow the
operating system to load normally. Please note that the BIOS will automatically reset
it to the default setting of Disabled after reconfiguring the new ESCD. So, there is no
need for you to manually disable this feature after rebooting.

properly, you can select the Manual option to reveal the IRQ and DMA assignment
fields. You can then assign each IRQ or DMA channel to either Legacy ISA or
PCI/ISA PnP devices. Legacy ISA devices are compliant with the original PC AT bus
specification and require a specific interrupt and/or DMA channel to function
properly. PCI/ISA PnP devices, on the other hand, adhere to the Plug and Play
standard and can use any interrupt or DMA channel.

this reduction can mean that some of your time-critical devices such as SCSI devices
can be affected and their stability reduced. Leave the setting disabled especially if
you are overclocking your system. If you find you have to try this use the smallest %
setting possible.
Some BIOS's have a Smart Clock setting which can turn off AGP, PCI & SDRAM clock
signals when not in use which reduces EMI without giving system stability problems.
