2-2 MEMORY INSTALLATION
WARNING!!!
• Make sure to unplug your power supply before adding or removing memory
modules or other system components. Failure to do so may cause severe
damage to both your mainboard and expansion cards.
• Be careful when inserting or removing DIMM. Forcing a DIMM in or out
of a socket improperly may damage the memory module or the socket.
Some DIMMs which contain EDO or FPM DRAM are incompliant with
the mainboard. The M/B supports 3.3V true SDRAM DIMMs only.
Installing DIMM
• Make sure you have the correct memory module type for your mainboard.
• Insert the module(s) as shown below, DIMMs have 168-pins and two
notches that will be matched by the onboard DIMM socket. Memory
modules are installed by inserting them straight into the slot until they
“click” in the right place. They only fit in one direction, so do not force
them in by a wrong direction.

2-4.2 FSB Frequency SELECT (By SW1 DIP5~DIP8)
• Over clocking is not recommended, your system may work unstable.
• SW1 DIP5~8 settings for FSB (Front Side Bus) Frequency Select is a
redundancy device designed for professional CPU overclocking only.
Since this mainboard is designed with CPU clock auto-detection function,
you are recommended to use the SW1 DIP5~8 default setting for a stable
system performance. In case of CPU overclocking to higher frequency,
these exists high possibility of failure due to the high complexity
of components adopted on board. On the other hand, selecting a lower
frequency setting for a CPU with higher frequency (e.g. select 100MHz
setting for a 133MHz CPU) will also cause system failure.

These fan connectors support CPU/chassis cooling fan with +12V. When
connecting wire to FAN connectors, users should pay attention that the red
wire is for the positive current and should be connected to pin +12V, and the
black wire is Ground and should be connected to pin GND. If your mainboard
has Hardware Monitor chipset on-board, you must use a specially designed
fan with speed sensor to take advantage of this function.
For fans with speed sensors, each rotation of the fan blades will send out 2
electric pulses, by which System Hardware Monitor will work out the fan
rotation speed by counting the pulses.
NOTE 1: Always consult vendor for proper CPU cooling fan.
NOTE 2: CPU FAN is supported by Hardware Monitor, with which a
warning will be given out against high CPU temperature.

• Both ISA and PCI expansion cards may require IRQs. System IRQs are
available to cards installed in the ISA expansion bus first, then any
remaining IRQs are available to PCI cards. Currently, there are two types
of ISA cards.
• The original ISA expansion card design, now referred to as “Legacy” ISA
card, requires you to configure the card’s jumpers manually and then install
it in any available slot on the ISA bus. To see a map of your used and free
IRQs in Windows 98, the Control Panel in My Computer, contains a
System icon, which gives you a Device Manager tab. Double-Clicking on a
specific hardware device gives you a Resources tab which shows the
Interrupt number and address. Double-Clicking Computers to see all the
interrupts and addresses for your system. Make sure that each ISA device
should be assigned to one IRQ respectively. If ISA device share IRQ with
any other device, your computer will easily get into trouble.

BIOS SETUP
THE BIOS
• BIOS stands for Basic Input and Output System. It is sometimes called
ROM BIOS because it is stored in a Read-Only Memory(ROM) chip on
the mainboard. BIOS is the first program to run when you turn on your
computer.
• BIOS performs the following functions:
1. Initializing and testing hardware in your computer (a process called
“POST”, for Power On Self Test).
2. Loading and running your operating system.
3. Helping your operating system and application programs to manage
your PC hardware by means of a set of routines called BIOS Run-Time
Service.
This chapter contains the following topics :
4-1 WHAT IS BIOS SETUP
4-2 HOW TO RUN BIOS SETUP
4-3 WHAT IS CMOS
4-4 WHAT IS POST
4-5 BIOS UPGRADE
4-6 BIOS SETUP
42
Chapter 4 BIOS Setup
4-1 WHAT IS BIOS SETUP
• BIOS setup is an interactive BIOS program that you need to run when:
1. Changing the hardware of your system. (For example: installing a new
Hard Disk etc.)
2. Modifying the behavior of your computer. (For example: changing the
system time or date, or turning special features on or off etc.)
3. Enhancing your computer’s behavior. (For example: speeding up
performance by turning on shadowing or cache)
4-2 HOW TO RUN BIOS SETUP
• To access BIOS setup menu, press < DEL > key after “POST”, and before
the OS is loaded. The BIOS usually displays the following message:
Press DEL to enter SETUP
4-3 WHAT IS CMOS
• CMOS is the memory maintained by a battery. The BIOS uses CMOS
to store the settings you have selected in SETUP. The CMOS also
maintains the internal clock. Every time you turn on your computer,
the BIOS Looks into CMOS for the settings you have selected and
configures your computer accordingly. If the battery is out of power,
the CMOS data will be lost and POST will issue a “CMOS invalid” or
“CMOS checksum invalid” message. If this happens, you have to replace
the battery and do some proper settings in SETUP.
4-4 WHAT IS POST
• POST is an acronym for Power On Self Test. POST will test all things the
BIOS does before the operating system is started. Each of POST routines
is assigned a POST code, a unique number which is sent to I/O port 080h
before the routine is executed.
4-5 BIOS UPGRADE
• System BIOS is incorporated into a Flash memory component of the
mainboard. Flash BIOS allows user to upgrade BIOS without the need
to replace an EPROM component.
43
65LIV-T
• The upgrade utility can be loaded on a floppy diskette and used to provide
the capability to save, verify, and update the system BIOS. The upgrade
utility can be run from a hard disk drive or a network drive.
4-5.1 Before Upgrading BIOS
• It is highly recommended that you save a copy of the original mainboard
BIOS along with a Flash EPROM Programming utility (AWDFLASH.EXE)
to a bootable floppy disk in case you need to reinstall the BIOS later.
4-5.2 Upgrade Process
Note: Normally, to upgrade BIOS is unnecessary if the system is working
fine without any problem. Users should not upgrade the BIOS unless you
experience incompatible problems or need to create new features. However,
please read all information in this section before upgrading.
“AWDFLASH.EXE” is a Flash EPROM Programming utility that updates
the BIOS by uploading a new BIOS file to the programmable flash ROM
on the mainboard. This program only works in DOS environment, the
utility can not be executed in win95/98, ME, NT or WINDOWS 2000
environment.
Upgrading the system BIOS
Step 1. Please visit the board maker’s website, download latest BIOS file and
award flash utility “AWDFLASH.EXE”. The BIOS file format will be *.bin, of
which “*” stands for the specific file name.
Step 2. Create a bootable diskette. Then copy the BIOS file and award flash utility
“AWDFLASH.EXE” into the diskette.
Step 3. Insert the diskette into drive A, reboot your system and boot from the
diskette.
44
Chapter 4 BIOS Setup
Step 4. Type awdflash *.bin /sn/py/cc and then press <Enter> to run BIOS
upgrade program. (*.bin depends on your mainboard model and version
code. Instead of typing “*”, you should type specific file name for your
specific mainboard).
Step 5. Please press <F1> or <F10> to exit or reset your system, Warning !

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 antivirus 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 disable the virus warning.
CPU Internal Cache/ Cache memory is additional memory that is much
External Cache faster than conventional DRAM (system memory).
CPUs from 486-type up contain internal cache
memory, and most, but not all, modern PCs have
additional (external) cache memory. When the CPU
requests data, the system transfers the requested
data from the main DRAM into cache memory, for
faster access by the CPU.
CPU L2 Cache ECC When you select Enabled, it will speed up memory
Checking checking when the external cache contains ECC
SRAMs.
The choices: Enabled; Disabled.
Processor Number Choose Disabled or Enabled. When enabled, the
Feature processor serial number will display during the boot
up screen.
Quick Power On Self Select Enabled to reduce the amount of time required to

Boot Up Floppy Seek When enabled, the BIOS tests (seeks) floppy drives
to determine whether they have 40 or 80 tracks. Only
360-KB floppy drives have 40 tracks; drives with
270KB, 1.2MB, and 1.44MB capacity all have 80
tracks. Because very few modern PCs have 40-track
floppy drives, we recommend that you set this field
to disabled to save time.
Boot Up NumLock Toggle between On or Off to control the state of
Status the NumLock key when the system boots. If On,
the numeric keypad is in numeric mode. If off, the
numeric keypad is in cursor control mode.
Gate A20 Option Gate A20 refers to the way the system addresses
memory above 1 MB (extended memory). When
set to Fast, the system chipset controls Gate A20.
When set to Normal, a pin in the keyboard controller
controls Gate A20. Setting Gate A20 to Fast improves
system speed, particularly with OS/2 and Windows.
Typematic Rate When Disabled, the following two items (Typematic Rate
Setting and Typematic Delay) are irrelevant. Keystroke repeats
at a rate determined by the keyboard controller in your

* IRQ Activity Monitoring
The following is a list of IRQ’s (Interrupt Requests), which can be exempted
much as the COM ports and LPT ports above can. When an I/O device
wants to gain the attention of the operating system, it signals this by causing an IRQ to occur. When the operating system is ready to respond to the
request, it interrupts itself and performs the service. When set On, activity
will neither prevent the system from going into a power management mode
nor awaken it.

Chapter 4 BIOS Setup
Auto Detect To reduce the occurrence of electromagnetic
DIMM/PCI CLK interference (EMI), the BIOS detects the presence
or absence of components in DIMM and PCI slots
and turns off system clock generator pulses against
empty slots.
Spread Spec- When the system clock generator pulses, the
trum Modulated extreme values of the pulse generate excess EMI.
Enabling pulse spectrum spread modulation
changes the extreme values from spikes to flat
curves, thus reducing EMI. This benefit may in some
cases be outweighed by problems with timing-critical
devices, such as a clock-sensitive SCSI device.
CPU Clock Thes items allows users to adjust CPU fequency.
