Chapter 2. Hardware Setup
Before the Installation: Turn off the power supply switch (fully turn off the +5V standby power), or
disconnect the power cord before installing or unplugging any connectors or add-on cards. Failing to do
so may cause the motherboard components or add-on cards to malfunction or damaged.
2-1. Install The Motherboard
Most computer chassis have a base with many mounting holes to allow motherboard to be securely
attached on and at the same time, prevented from short circuits. There are two ways to attach the
motherboard to the chassis base:
1. use with studs
2. or use with spacers
In principle, the best way to attach the board is to
use with studs. Only if you are unable to do this
should you attach the board with spacers. Line up
the holes on the board with the mounting holes on
the chassis. If the holes line up and there are
screw holes, you can attach the board with studs.
If the holes line up and there are only slots, you
can only attach with spacers. Take the tip of the
spacers and insert them into the slots. After doing
this to all the slots, you can slide the board into
position aligned with slots. After the board has been positioned, check to make sure everything is OK
before putting the chassis back on.
ATTENTION: To prevent shorting the PCB circuit, please REMOVE the metal studs or spacers if they
are already fastened on the chassis base and are without mounting-holes on the motherboard to align with.

2-2. Install CPU and Heatsink
This motherboard provides a ZIF (Zero Insertion
Force) Socket 754 to install AMD Socket 754
CPU. The CPU you bought should contain with a
kit of heatsink, cooling fan, retention frame and
blackplate. If that’s not the case, buy one specially
designed for Socket 754.
Please refer to the figure shown here to install
CPU and heatsink. (For reference only. Your
Heatsink & Fan Assembly may not be exactly the
same as this one.)
1.
Locate the Socket 754 on this motherboard.
Pull the CPU release lever sideways to
unlatch and then raise it all the way up.
2.
Drop the processor with its pin side down into
the CPU socket. Do not use extra force to

This motherboard provides two IDE ports to connect up to four IDE drives at Ultra DMA mode by Ultra
ATA/66 ribbon cables. Each cable has 40-pin 80-conductor and three connectors, providing two hard
drives connection with motherboard. Connect the single end (blue connector) at the longer length of
ribbon cable to the IDE port on motherboard, and the other two ends (gray and black connector) at the
shorter length of the ribbon cable to the connectors on hard drives.
If you want to connect two hard drives together through one IDE channel, you must configure the second
drive to Slave mode after the first Master drive. Please refer to the drives’ documentation for jumper
settings. The first drive connected to IDE1 is usually referred to as “Primary Master”, and the second
drive as “Primary Slave”. The first drive connected to IDE2 is referred to as “Secondary Master” and the
second drive as “Secondary Slave”.
Keep away from connecting one legacy slow speed drive, like CD-ROM, together with another hard drive
on the same IDE channel; this will drop your integral system performance.

(12). POST Code Display
This is an LED device to display the “POST” Code, the acronym of Power On Self Test. The computer
will execute the POST action whenever you power on the computer. The POST process is controlled by
the BIOS. It is used to detect the status of the computer’s main components and peripherals. Each POST
Code corresponds to different checkpoints that are also defined by the BIOS in advance. For example,
“memory presence test” is an important checkpoint and its POST Code is “C1”. When the BIOS execute
any POST item, it will write the corresponding POST Code into the address 80h. If the POST passes, the
BIOS will process the next POST item and write the next POST Code into the address 80h. If the POST
fails, we can check the POST Code in address 80h to find out where the problem lies.
This LED device also displays the “POST” Code of AC2003, an “uGuru” chipset developed exclusively
by ABIT computer.
NOTE: The decimal point lights up when executing the AC2003 POST action.

Appendix H. Troubleshooting (Need Assistance?)
Q & A:
Q: Do I need to clear the CMOS before I use a new motherboard to assemble my new computer
system?
A: Yes, we highly recommend that you clear the CMOS before installing a new motherboard. Please
move the CMOS jumper from its default 1-2 position to 2-3 for a few seconds, and then back. When
you boot up your system for the first time, follow the instructions in the user's manual to load the
optimized defaults.
Q: If my systems hang when I update the BIOS or set the wrong CPU parameters, what should I
do?
A: Whenever you update the BIOS or if the system hangs due to wrong CPU parameters setting, always
clear CMOS jumper before booting up again.
Q: Why the system failed to boot up and nothing was displayed on the screen after I did some
over-clocking or non-standard settings inside the BIOS? Is the motherboard dead? Do I need to
return it to where I bought from or go through an RMA process?
A: It should not cause hardware or permanent damage to motherboard when BIOS settings were
changed from default to over-clocking or non-standard status.
We suggest the following three troubleshooting methods to discharge CMOS data, recover the
hardware default status, and then make the motherboard working again. No need to bother returning
the motherboard to where you bought from or go through an RMA process.
Step 1. Switch off the power supply unit and then switch it on again after one minute. If there is no
power switch on the power supply unit, disconnect its power cord for one minute and then
connect it back.
Press and hold the <Insert> key on the keyboard, press the power-on button to boot up
system. If it works, loose the <Insert> key and hit <Del> key to enter the BIOS setup page to
do the correct settings.
If the situation remains the same, repeat the procedures in Step 1 for three times, or try Step
2.
Step 2. Switch off the power supply unit or disconnect the power cord. Open the chassis cover.
Locate the CCMOS jumper near the button battery. Change the jumper position from default
1-2 to 2-3 for one minute to discharge the CMOS data, and then put it back to default 1-2
position.
Close the chassis and switch on the power supply unit or plug in the power cord. Press the
power-on button to boot up system. If it works, hit <Del> key to enter the BIOS setup page
to do the correct settings.
If the situation remains the same, try Step 3.
Step 3. The same procedure as Step 2, but in the meantime of discharging the CMOS data, pull out
ATX power connectors from motherboard and remove the button battery during CMOS
discharging.

Appendix H
Q: How can I get a quick response to my request for technical support?
A: Be sure to follow the guidelines as stated in the “Technical Support Form” section of this manual.
If you have a problem during operation, in order to help our technical support personnel quickly
determine the problem with your motherboard and give you the answers you need, before filling in
the technical support form, eliminate any peripheral that is not related to the problem, and indicate it
on the form. Fax this form to your dealer or to the company where you bought the hardware in order
to benefit from our technical support. (You can refer to the examples given below)
Example 1:
With a system including: motherboard (with CPU, DRAM, COAST...) HDD, CD-ROM, FDD, VGA
CARD, MPEG CARD, SCSI CARD, SOUND CARD, etc. After the system is assembled, if you
cannot boot up, check the key components of the system using the procedure described below. First
remove all interface cards except the VGA card and try to reboot.
If you still cannot boot up: Try installing another brand/model VGA card and see if the system will
start. If it still does not start, note the VGA card model, motherboard model, Bios identification
number, CPU on the technical support form (refer to main instructions), and describe the problem in
the problem description space provided.
If you can boot up: Insert the interface cards you have removed back into the system, one by one
and try to start the system each time you insert a card, until the system will not start. Keep the VGA
card and the interface card that caused the problem inserted on the motherboard, remove any other
cards or peripheral, and start again. If you still cannot start, note the information related to both cards
in the add-on Card space provided, and don’t forget to indicate the motherboard model, version,
BIOS identification number, CPU (refer to main instructions), and give a description of the problem.
Example 2:
With a system including the motherboard (with CPU, DRAM, COAST...) HDD, CD-ROM, FDD,
VGA CARD, LAN CARD, MPEG CARD, SCSI CARD, SOUND CARD, after assembly and after
having installed the Sound Card Driver, when you restart the system, when it runs the Sound Card
Driver, it resets automatically. This problem may be due to the Sound Card Driver. During the
Starting DOS… procedure, press SHIFT (BY-PASS) key, to skip CONFIG.SYS and
AUTOEXEC.BAT; edit CONFIG.SYS with a text editor, and in function the line that loads the
Sound Card Driver, add a remark REM, in order to disable the Sound Card Driver. See the example
below.
CONFIG.SYS:
DEVICE=C:\DOS\HIMEM.SYS
DEVICE=C:\DOS\EMM386.EXE HIGHSCAN
DOS=HIGH, UMB
FILES=40
BUFFERS=36
REM DEVICEHIGH=C:\PLUGPLAY\DWCFGMG.SYS
LASTDRIVE=Z
Restart the system. If the system starts and does not reset, you can be sure that the problem is due to
the Sound Card Driver. Write down the Sound Card model, motherboard model, BIOS identification
number on the technical support file (refer to main instructions), and describe the problem in the
space provided.
We will show you how to fill the “Technical Support Form”.
