When you install DIMM module fully into the DIMM socket the eject tab should be
locked into the DIMM module very firmly and fit into its indention on both sides.
WARNING! For the DDR SDRAM CLOCK is set at 133MHz, use only DDR266-compliant DDR
Modules. When this motherboard operate at 133MHz, most system will not even
boot if non-compliant modules are used because of the strict timing issues, if your
SDR Modules are not DDR266-compliant, set the DDR SDRAM clock to 100MHz
to ensure system stability.

Starting Up Your Computer
1. After all connections are made, close your computer case cover.
2. Be sure all the switch are off, and check that the power supply input voltage is set to
proper position, usually in-put voltage is 220V∼240V or 110V∼120V depending on your
country’s voltage used.
3. Connect the power supply cord into the power supply located on the back of your system
case according to your system user’s manual.
4. Turn on your peripheral as following order:
a. Your monitor.
b. Other external peripheral (Printer, Scanner, External Modem etc…)
c. Your system power. For ATX power supplies, you need to turn on the power supply
and press the ATX power switch on the front side of the case.
5. The power LED on the front panel of the system case will light. The LED on the
monitor may light up or switch between orange and green after the system is on. If it
complies with green standards or if it is has a power standby feature. The system will
then run power-on test. While the test are running, the BIOS will alarm beeps or
additional message will appear on the screen.
If you do not see any thing within 30 seconds from the time you turn on the power. The
system may have failed on power-on test. Recheck your jumper settings and connections
or call your retailer for assistance.

Chapter 3
Introducing BIOS
The BIOS is a program located on a Flash Memory on the motherboard. This program is a
bridge between motherboard and operating system. When you start the computer, the BIOS
program gain control. The BIOS first operates an auto-diagnostic test called POST (power
on self test) for all the necessary hardware, it detects the entire hardware device and
configures the parameters of the hardware synchronization. Only when these tasks are
completed done it gives up control of the computer to operating system (OS). Since the
BIOS is the only channel for hardware and software to communicate, it is the key factor for
system stability, and in ensuring that your system performance as its best.
In the BIOS Setup main menu of Figure 3-1, you can see several options. We will explain
these options step by step in the following pages of this chapter, but let us first see a short
description of the function keys you may use here:
•
Press <Esc> to quit the BIOS Setup.
•
Press ↑ ↓ ← → (up, down, left, right) to choose, in the main menu, the option you want to
confirm or to modify.
•
Press <F10> when you have completed the setup of BIOS parameters to save these
parameters and to exit the BIOS Setup menu.
•
Press Page Up/Page Down or +/– keys when you want to modify the BIOS parameters for
the active option.

Entering Setup
Power on the computer and by pressing <Del> immediately allows you to enter Setup.
If the message disappears before your respond and you still wish to enter Setup, restart the
system to try again by turning it OFF then ON or pressing the “RESET” button on the system
case. You may also restart by simultaneously pressing <Ctrl>, <Alt> and <Delete> keys.
If you do not press the keys at the correct time and the system does not boot, an error message
will be displayed and you will again be asked to
Press <F1> to continue, <Ctrl-Alt-Esc> or <Del> to enter Setup

DRAM CAS Latency
When synchronous DRAM is installed, the number of clock cycles of CAS latency depends
on the DRAM timing. The settings are: 2T, 2.5T and 3T.
RAS Precharge Time
If an insufficient number of cycles is allowed for the RAS to accumulate its charge before
DRAM refresh, the refresh may be incomplete and the DRAM may fail to retain date. Fast
gives faster performance; and Slow gives more stable performance. This field applies only
when synchronous DRAM is installed in the system. The settings are: 2T and 3T.
RAS-to-CAS Delay
This field let’s you insert a timing delay between the CAS and RAS strobe signals, used when
DRAM is written to, read from, or refreshed. Fast gives faster performance; and Slow gives
more stable performance. This field applies only when synchronous DRAM is installed in
the system. The settings are: 2T and 3T.

PnP/PCI Configuration Setup
This section describes configuring the PCI bus system. PCI, or Personal Computer
Interconnect, is a system which allows I/O devices to operate at speeds nearing the speed the
CPU itself uses when communicating with its own special components. This section covers
some very technical items and it is strongly recommended that only experienced users should
make any changes to the default settings.

message will appear at the center of the screen to assist you in
creating a password.
ENTER PASSWORD:
Type the password, up to eight characters in length, and press <Enter>. The password typed
now will clear any previously entered password from CMOS memory. You will be asked to
confirm the password. Type the password again and press <Enter>. You may also press
<Esc> to abort the selection and not enter a password.
To disable a password, just press <Enter> when you are prompted to enter the password. A
message will confirm that the password will be disabled. Once the password is disabled, the
system will boot and you can enter Setup freely.
PASSWORD DISABLED.
When a password has been enabled, you will be prompted to enter it every time you try to
enter Setup. This prevents an unauthorized person from changing any part of your system
configuration.
Additionally, when a password is enabled, you can also require the BIOS to request a
password every time your system is rebooted. This would prevent unauthorized use of your
computer.
You determine when the password is required within the BIOS Features Setup Menu and its
Security option. If the Security option is set to “System”, the password will be required both
at boot and at entry to Setup. If set to “Setup”, prompting only occurs when trying to enter
Setup.
