1.3.2 Value-added solutions

Temperature, fan, and voltage monitoring

The CPU temperature is monitored by the ASUS ASIC to prevent overheating and damage. The system fan rotations per minute (RPM) is monitored for timely failure detection. The system voltage levels are monitored to ensure stable supply of current for critical components.

Dual function power switch

While the system is ON, pressing the power switch for less than 4 seconds puts the system to sleep mode or to soft-off mode, depending on the BIOS setting. Pressing the power switch for more than 4 seconds lets the system enter the soft-off mode regardless of the BIOS setting.

Wake-Up support

The motherboard includes Wake-On-LAN, Wake-On-Ring, and BIOS

Wake-Up features.

ACPI ready

The Advanced Configuration power Interface (ACPI) provides more energy saving features for operating systems that support OS Direct Power

Management (OSPM).

Concurrent PCI

This feature allows multiple PCI transfers from PCI master buses to the memory and processor.

Chassis intrusion detection

With this feature, the chassis intrusion circuitry logs “chassis-open” events into the system BIOS. The onboard battery supports the chassis intrusion detection feature even when the normal power is removed.

Smart BIOS

The 4Mbit firmware gives an easy-to-use interface that provides more control and protection to the motherboard. The BIOS has a boot block write protection and HD/SCSI/MO/ZIP/CD/Floppy boot selection, and is

Year 2000 certified.

Chapter 1: Product introduction

Compliance

Both the BIOS and the hardware levels of the motherboard meet the stringent requirements for SDG 2.0 certification. The new SDG 2.0

requirements for systems and components are based on the following high-level goals: support for Plug-and-Play compatibility and power management for configuring and managing all system components, 32-bit device drivers, and installation procedures for Windows NT/2000/XP.

Color-coded connectors and descriptive icons make identification easy as required by the PC ‘99 specification.

System memory

2.5.1 Overview

The motherboard comes with six Double Data Rate (DDR) Dual Inline

Memory Module (DIMM) sockets. These sockets support up to 12GB system memory using 184-pin registered PC2100/1600 DIMMs with Serial

Presence Detect (SPD) and Error Check and Correction (ECC).

104 Pins 80 Pins

® PR-DLSW

PR-DLSW 184-Pin DDR DIMM Sockets

A DDR DIMM is keyed with a notch so that it fits in only one direction.

DO NOT force a DIMM into a socket to avoid damaging the DIMM.

2-8

The DDR SDRAM technology evolved from the mainstream PC66, PC100,

PC133 memory known as Single Data Rate (SDR) SDRAM. DDR memory however, has the ability to perform two data operations in one clock cycle, thus providing twice the throughput of SDR memory. For example, a

200MHz DDR DIMM will support a 100MHz memory bus, and a 266MHz

DDR DIMM will support a 133MHz memory bus.

DDR Data Transfer Rate

266MHz

200MHz

DDR Base Frequency

133MHz

100MHz

A DDR DIMM has the same physical dimensions as an SDR DIMM, but it has a 184-pin footprint compared to the 168-pin of the SDR DIMM. Also, a

DDR DIMM is single notched while an SDR DIMM is double notched.

Therefore, a DDR DIMM is not backward compatible with SDR, and should be installed only in a socket specially designed for DDR DIMMs.

Chapter 2: Hardware information

2.5.2 Memory Configurations

The motherboard supports system memory of up to 12GB in a two-way interleaved configuration. As a rule, this configuration requires that you install identical DDR DIMMs (exactly the same type and size) in pairs. For example, if you installed a 512MB module into DDRA1, you must install the same type of 512MB module into DDRB1. The same rule applies to pairs DDRA2/DDRB2 and DDRA3/DDRB3.

The only exception to the above rule allows you to install one DIMM into

DDRA1 socket (the socket closest to the ATX power connector). Installing a single DIMM into any other socket would not work.

The following table lists the DIMM socket pairs and the memory modules that you can install.

This connector supports the provided UltraDMA/100/66 IDE hard disk ribbon cable. Connect the cable’s blue connector to the primary

(recommended) or secondary IDE connector, then connect the gray connector to the UltraDMA/100/66 slave device (hard disk drive) and the black connector to the UltraDMA/100/66 master device. It is recommended that you connect non-UltraDMA/100/66 devices to the secondary IDE connector. If you install two hard disks, you must configure the second drive as a slave device by setting its jumper accordingly. Refer to the hard disk documentation for the jumper settings. BIOS supports specific device bootup. If you have more than two UltraDMA/100/66 devices, purchase another UltraDMA/100/66 cable. You may configure two hard disks to be both master devices with two ribbon cables – one for the primary IDE connector and another for the secondary IDE connector.

1. Pin 20 on each IDE connector is removed to match the covered hole on the UltraDMA cable connector. This prevents incorrect orientation when you connect the cables.

2. The hole near the blue connector on the UltraDMA/100/66 cable is intentional.

SCSI Connection Notes

This motherboard has two 68-Pin Ultra160 SCSI connectors; one for each of the two channels.

The onboard SCSI chipset incorporates an advanced multimode I/O cell that supports both single-ended (SE), Ultra2, and Ultra160 devices. With

Ultra160 devices, the SCSI bus platform performs at full Ultra160 speeds

(up to 160MB/s) and extended cabling 12m (or 25m in a point-to-point configuration). When an SE device is attached, the bus defaults to an SE speed and 1.5m cable length.

Connect SCSI devices as shown. Each channel should have only one type of SCSI standard (e.g. Ultra160, Ultra2, Ultra-Wide). Mixing SCSI devices on the same channel decreases performance of the slower device.

Starting up for the first time

1. After making all the connections, replace the system case cover.

2. Be sure that all switches are off.

3. Connect the power cord to the power connector at the back of the system chassis.

4. Connect the power cord to a power outlet that is equipped with a surge protector.

5. Turn on the devices in the following order: a. Monitor b. External SCSI devices (starting with the last device on the chain) c. System power (if you are using an ATX power supply, you need to switch on the power supply as well as press the ATX power switch on the front of the chassis).

6. After applying power, the power LED on the system front panel case lights up. For ATX power supplies, the system LED lights up when you press the

ATX power switch. If your monitor complies with “green” standards or if it has a “power standby” feature, the monitor LED may light up or switch between orange and green after the system LED turns on. The system then runs the power-on tests. While the tests are running, the BIOS beeps or additional messages appear on the screen. If you do not see anything within 30 seconds from the time you turned on the power, the system may have failed a power-on test. Check the jumper settings and connections or call your retailer for assistance.

4.1

Managing and updating your BIOS

4.1.1 Creating a bootable disk

AFLASH.EXE is a Flash Memory Writer utility that updates the BIOS by uploading a new BIOS file to the programmable flash ROM on the motherboard. This file works only in DOS mode. To determine the BIOS version of your motherboard, check the last four numbers of the code displayed on the upper left-hand corner of your screen during bootup.

Larger numbers represent a newer BIOS file.

1. Type FORMAT A:/S at the DOS prompt to create a bootable system disk. DO NOT copy AUTOEXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS to the disk.

2. Type COPY D:\AFLASH\AFLASH.EXE A:\ (assuming D is your

CD-ROM drive) to copy AFLASH.EXE to the boot disk you created.

AFLASH works only in DOS mode. It does not work in the DOS prompt within Windows, and does not work with certain memory drivers that may be loaded when you boot from the hard drive. It is recommended that you reboot using a floppy disk.

3. Reboot the computer from the floppy disk.

BIOS setup must specify “Floppy” as the first item in the boot sequence.

4. In DOS mode, type A:\AFLASH <Enter> to run AFLASH.

If the word “unknown” appears after Flash Memory:, the memory chip is either not programmable or is not supported by the ACPI BIOS and therefore, cannot be programmed by the Flash Memory Writer utility.

ASUS PR-DLSW motherboard user guide 4-1

5. Select 1. Save Current BIOS to File from the Main menu and press

<Enter>. The Save Current BIOS To File screen appears.

6. Type a filename and the path, for example, A:\XXX-XX.XXX, then press <Enter>.

4-2 Chapter 4: BIOS Setup

4.1.2 Updating the BIOS

Update the BIOS only if you have problems with the motherboard and you are sure that the new BIOS revision will solve your problems.

Careless updating may result to more problems with the motherboard!

1. Download an updated ASUS BIOS file from the Internet (WWW or

FTP) (see ASUS CONTACT INFORMATION on page x for details) and save to the boot floppy disk you created earlier.

2. Boot from the floppy disk.

3. At the “A:\” prompt, type AFLASH and then press <Enter>.

4. At the Main Menu, type 2 then press <Enter>. The Update BIOS

Including Boot Block and ESCD screen appears.

5. Type the filename of your new BIOS and the path, for example,

A:\XXX-XX.XXX, then press <Enter>.

To cancel this operation, press <Enter>.

6. When prompted to confirm the BIOS update, press Y to start the update.

ASUS PR-DLSW motherboard user guide 4-3

7. The utility starts to program the new BIOS information into the Flash

ROM. The boot block is updated automatically only when necessary.

This minimizes the possibility of boot problems in case of update failures. When the programming is done, the message “Flashed

Successfully” appears.

8. Follow the onscreen instructions to continue.

4-4

If you encounter problems while updating the new BIOS, DO NOT turn off the system because this may cause boot problems. Just repeat the process, and if the problem persists, load the original BIOS file you saved to the boot disk. If the Flash Memory Writer utility is not able to successfully update a complete BIOS file, the system may not boot. If this happens, call the ASUS service center for support.

Chapter 4: BIOS Setup

4.2

BIOS Setup program

This motherboard supports a programmable Flash ROM that you can update using the provided utility described in section “4.1 Managing and updating your BIOS.”

Use the BIOS Setup program when you are installing a motherboard, reconfiguring your system, or prompted to “Run Setup”. This section explains how to configure your system using this utility.

Even if you are not prompted to use the Setup program, you may want to change the configuration of your computer in the future. For example, you may want to enable the security password feature or make changes to the power management settings. This requires you to reconfigure your system using the BIOS Setup program so that the computer can recognize these changes and record them in the CMOS RAM of the Flash ROM.

The Flash ROM on the motherboard stores the Setup utility. When you start up the computer, the system provides you with the opportunity to run this program. Press <Delete> during the Power-On Self Test (POST) to enter the Setup utility, otherwise, POST continues with its test routines.

If you wish to enter Setup after POST, restart the system by pressing

<Ctrl> + <Alt> + <Delete>, or by pressing the reset button on the system chassis. You can also restart by turning the system off and then back on.

Do this last option only if the first two failed.

The Setup program is designed to make it as easy to use as possible. It is a menu-driven program, which means you can scroll through the various sub-menus and make your selections among the predetermined choices.

Because the BIOS software is constantly being updated, the following

BIOS setup screens and descriptions are for reference purposes only, and may not exactly match what you see on your screen.

SCSI Driver Installation

Windows NT 4.0 do not have drivers for the new SCSI controllers, you must load the driver manually prior to Windows NT 4.0 installation.

A. Preparing an LSI Driver Disk

The drivers are located on the ASUS Driver Support CD at:

\Drivers\Sdms\Drivers\WINNT

Copy all the files and subdirectory under the WINNT subdirectory to the root directory of a clean floppy disk. Use this LSI driver disk during installation, or use the self-extracting image files for Windows NT drivers.

The LSI_U3.SYS executable driver is in ASUS Driver Support CD at:

\Drivers\Sdms\Diskimag\NT40.exe

B. New System Installation

This procedure installs the LSI_U3.SYS driver onto a Windows NT system.

Use this procedure when installing Windows NT onto an unused SCSI drive. Windows NT automatically adds the driver to the registry and copies the driver to the appropriate directory. There are two methods to install the

Windows NT system. One is installed by booting from NT CD Disc; the other is by booting from NT three installation floppy disks.

B1. CD-ROM Installation

1.

Start the Windows NT installation by booting from the Windows NT

CD-ROM. The system BIOS must support booting from a CD-ROM.

LSI BIOS settings may need to be changed to allow CD-ROM booting when using SCSI-interface CD-ROM drive.

2.

When the screen displays “Windows NT Setup”, immediately press the F6 key. This must be done or else the new driver installed from the LSI driver disk will not be recognized.

Even if you did not press F6, you are still allowed to load additional drivers later in the installation process. However, any drivers loaded during Windows NT Setup are not immediately recognized and no devices controlled by that driver are available during Windows NT

Setup.

Instructions for Installing the eeE Driver for SCO OpenServer

1.

Copy the eee.vol file to any directory, say /tmp, on the SCO system, renaming the file as VOL.000.000. Also, make the file read-only by using ‘chmod’.

For example,

# cp eeE.vol /tmp/VOL.000.000

# chmod 444 /tmp/VOL.000.000

2.

If there is an older version of the eeE driver on the system, you must first remove it. To do this, run ‘netconfig’. Remove all instances of the

“Intel ...” adapters. Exit netconfig without opting to relink the kernel.

3.

Install the new driver using ‘custom’. When asked for the installation media, choose ‘media images’, and type the directory path to the

VOL.000.000 file. (In step 1, if you copied it to /tmp, type ‘/tmp’). After the installation of the driver is complete, exit ‘custom’.

4.

Run ‘netconfig’ and add the adapters. For each adapter that is present in the system, enter the appropriate TCP/IP parameters. By default, the driver automatically detects the line speed and duplex mode. If you want to force any of these settings, choose ‘Advanced

Options’ and set the speed and duplex modes. Exit ‘netconfig’ and choose to relink the kernel.

5.

Reboot the system. At the command prompt, type:
