Safety Precautions

‹

Warning!

Always completely disconnect the power cord from your chassis whenever you work with the hardware. Do not make connections while the power is on. Sensitive electronic components can be damaged by sudden power surges. Only experienced electronics personnel should open the PC chassis.

Caution!

Always ground yourself to remove any static charge before touching the CPU card. Modern electronic devices are very sensitive to static electric charges. As a safety precaution, use a grounding wrist strap at all times. Place all electronic components in a static-dissipative surface or static-shielded bag when they are not in the chassis.

Phoenix BIOS Setup

This chapter describes how to set

BIOS configuration

3

Chapter 3 Phoenix BIOS SETUP

Your computer comes with a hardware configuration program called BIOS Setup that allows you to view and set system parameters.

The BIOS (Basic Input / Output System) is a layer of software, called ‘firmware’, that translates instructions from software (such as the operating system) into instructions that the computer hardware can understand. The BIOS settings also identify installed devices and establish special features.

¾ USE BIOS SETUP TO

„ Set the current time and date.

„ Customize your hardware settings according to your needs,

„ Secure your computer with a password.

Note:

Values for the various setup items that appear on your own screen (including default values) may not be the same as the values shown on the screen figures in this chapter. This is because the BIOS is revised and updated from time to time.

If in doubt, check Winmate website for the latest BIOS versions and related information.

¾ ENTERING BIOS SETUP

You can access the BIOS program just after you turn on your computer. Just press the

F2 key when the following prompt appears:

Press <F2> to enter Setup.

When you press F2 to enter BIOS Setup, the system interrupts the Power-On Self-Test

(POST). If the system detects an error during POST, it prompts you with a double beep and a message: Press <F1> to resume. If you press F1, the system enters the

BIOS Setup program. If you want to fix the error, carefully read the error message that appears above the prompt (taking notes if you want) and press F2.

Note:

If you receive this message repeatedly and the date displayed by your computer is inaccurate, then your CMOS battery may have lost charge. Contact your

Technical Support Centre for advice.

¾ BIOS SETUP SCREENS

After you press F2, the system displays the BIOS Setup interface. Use the left and right arrow keys to toggle through the BIOS Setup menu items.

¾ LOOKING AT SCREENS

BIOS setup screens have four areas:

„ Menu items - the top of the screen. This area highlights which menu are active.

„ Parameters - the left side of the screen. This area lists parameters and their current settings.

„ Available Options and Help - the right side of the screen. This area lists alternate settings and Help text for each parameter.

„ Key Legend - the bottom of the screen. These lines display the keys that move the cursor and select parameters.

Options that are grayed out are not available for the current selection. Settings displayed in blue are automatically detected by your computer.

¾ USING KEYS

The following table lists the BIOS Setup keys and their functions:

Moves the cursor between the displayed parameters.

Selects a sub-menu (sub-menus are indicated with a at the beginning of the line), a menu command (such as Exit Discarding Changes), or displays the options available for the currently selected parameter.

Steps forward/backward through the settings available for the selected parameter.

For some parameter settings, moves the cursor between the subfields. For example, for System Time, Tab moves the cursor from hour to minute to second.

Exits any pop-up window and from any menu screen, pressing Escape jumps directly to the Exit menu.

Loads the default configurations, as recorded before the computer left the factory.

Saves and exits the BIOS setup utility.

Once you enter the Phoenix BIOS™ CMOS Setup Utility, the Main Menu will appear on the screen.

The Setup Utility features five menus which are listed on the menu bar at the top of the screen. The Main Menu allows you to select from several setup functions and two exit choices. User the arrow keys to select among the items and press <← and → > to accept and enter the sub-menu.

¾ Main - use this menu for basic system configuration.

¾ Advanced - use this menu to set I/0 device configuration and more.

¾ Security - use this menu to set user and administrator passwords, and other security features.

¾ Power - Use this menu to specify your setting for power management.

¾ Boot - use this menu to set the boot sequence.

¾ Exit - use this menu to exit the Setup utility with various save or discard options.

These menus are described in detail in the following pages.

Use the Main menu screen to view the System Time, System Date and to modify drive parameters and related settings via the HDD Sub-menu.

The Main Menu allows users to configure system components such as date, time, hard disk drive, floppy drive and display. Use the arrow keys to highlight the item and then use the <Page Up> or <Page Down> keys to select the value you want in each item.

The Main Menu screen is shown above. Follow each item:

¾ System Time (hh/mm/ss)

Set the time. Enter the current hour, minute and second in hr/min/sec,

24-hour format.

To set the time use the Tab or Enter keys to move from field to field. Simply type the new number required.

¾ System Date (mm/dd/yyyy)

Set your system's calendar month, day and year. These settings remain in the memory even after you turn off system power.

To set the date use the Tab or Enter keys to move from field to field. Simply type the new number required.

Your computer supports a password for system security on several levels. Keep in mind that you must set the supervisor password before the BIOS Setup utility allows you to set a user password.

Once you set a supervisor password, you must type it before you can enter BIOS

Setup, and then depending on the selections made in the Security menu, access the system at start-up or Hibernation (Save To File).

Note:

1. When entering BIOS Setup using the user password, only a limited number of fields can be changed; the most sensitive items are read-only

The entries from this field represent devices that can be used to start your computer.

When your computer starts it will search each device, following the order defined in the list, for any 'boot' (start-up) instructions available. If a disk is found that contains such information, it will be used to start your computer.

This can be useful if the disk contains a 'rescue' program, that will solve a serious problem with your computer (your Recovery Disk or Recovery CD does this).

Consequently, you should keep removable devices above your main hard drive in this list. Should your computer's hard drive develop a major fault, you will also be able to use a bootable CD or floppy disk to start your computer.

5.1 Introduction

A270 Motherboard is equipped with the Realtek RTL8111B Gigabit Ethernet controller combines a triple-speed IEEE 802.3 compliant Media Access Controller (MAC) with a triple-speed Ethernet transceiver, PCI Express bus controller, and embedded memory.

With state-of-the-art DSP technology and mixed-mode signal technology, it offers high-speed transmission over CAT 5 UTP cable or CAT 3 UTP (10Mbps only) cable.

Functions such as Crossover Detection & Auto-Correction, polarity correction, adaptive equalization, cross-talk cancellation, echo cancellation, timing recovery, and error correction are implemented to provide robust transmission and reception capability at high speeds.

The device supports the PCI Express 1.0a bus interface for host communications with power management and is compliant with the IEEE 802.3u specification for
