System Specifications
Overview
All the new Socket-T motherboards come with a socket protector that has to be removed before you fit the
CPU. This is to prevent damage to the pins inside the CPU socket before the chip is inserted.
The new CPU socket is known as Socket-T and the new processors will be of LGA775 type. LGA stands
forLand Grid Array and means that there are no pins on the bottom of the CPU, although there are still
contact surfaces - no less 775 of them. The CPU interface has been moved to the motherboard socket and
this is a way for Intel to get fewer returns in terms of damaged CPUs due to bent or broken pins.
Aspire T600/AcerPower FV are versatile, high-power system, supporting Intel LGA775 CPUs. The computer
uses Peripheral Component Interface (PCI) and Accelerated Graphics Port (AGP) design. This improves
system efficiency and helps the system support varied multimedia and software applications.
Below will introduce K5 (Aspire T600/AcerPower FV) outline :

Dual Channel
Aspire T600/AcerPower FV support the Dual Channel Technology. After operating the dual channel
technology, the bandwidth of memory bus will add double up to 6.4GB/s.
Aspire T600/AcerPower FV inculde 4 DIMM sockets, and each channel has two DIMM sockets as following:
T
Channel A : DDR1, DDR2
T
Channel B : DDR3 , DDR4
If you want to operate the Dual Channel Technology, please note the following explanations due to
the limitation of Intel chipset specifications.
Memory Number
Description
1
Only one DDR memory module is
installed ?
The Dual Channel Technology can’t operate when only one DDR
memory module is installed.
2
Two DDR memory modules are
installed ( the same memory size and
type) ?
The Dual Channel Technology will operate when two memory
modules are inserted individually into Channel A and B. If you
install two memory modules in the same channel, the Dual
Channel Technology will not operate.
3
Three DDR memory modules are
installed ?
Pleae note that the Dual Channel Technology will not operate
when three DDR memory modules are installed; part of them will
not be detected.
4
Four DDR memory modules are
installed ?
If you install four memory modules at the same time, the Dual
Channel Technology will operate only when those modules have
the same size and type.
NOTE: We strongly recommend user to slot two DDR memory modules into the DIMMs with the same color in
order for Dual Channel Technology to work.

System Utilities
BIOS (Basic Input and Output System) includes a CMOS SETUP utility which allows user to
configure required setting or to active certain system features.
The CMOS SETUP saves the configuration in the CMOS SRAM of the mainboard. When the power is turned
off, the battery on the mainboard supplies the necessary power to the CMOS SRAM.
When the power is turned on, pushing the <Del> button during the BIOS POST (Power-On Self Test) will take
you to the CMOS SETUP screen. When setting up BIOS for the first time, it is recommended that you save
the current BIOS to a disk in the event that BIOS needs to be reset to its original settings.
Q-Flash allows the user to quickly and easily update or backup BIOS without entering the operating system.
BIOS is a Window s-based utility that doesn’t required users to boot to DOS before upgrading BIOS but
directly download and update BIOS from the Internet.

Power-On Self-Test (POST)
Each time you turn on the system, the Power-on Self Test (POST) is initiated. Several items are tested during
POST, but is for the most part transparent to the user.
The Power-On Self Test (POST) is a BIOS procedure that boots the system, initializes and diagnoses the
system components, and controls the operation of the power-on password option. If POST discovers errors in
system operations at power-on, it displays error messages on screen, generates a check point code at port
80h or even halts the system if the error is fatal.
The main components on the main board that must be diagnosed and/or initialized by POST to ensure system
functionality are as follows:
T
Microprocessor with built-in numeric co-processor and cache memory subsystem
T
Direct Memory Access (DMA) controller
T
Interrupt system
T
Three programmable timers
T
ROM subsystem
T
RAM subsystem
T
CMOS RAM subsystem and real time clock/calendar with battery backup
T
Onboard parallel interface controller
T
Embedded hard disk interface and one diskette drive interface
T
Keyboard and auxiliary device controllers
T
1.44M floppy controller
T
I/O ports
T
One parallel port
T
One PS/2-compatible mouse port
T
One PS/2-compatible keyboard port
NOTE: When Post executes a task, it uses a series of preset numbers called check points to be latched at
port 80h, indicating the stages it is currently running. This latch can be read and shown on a debug board.
The following table describes the BIOS common tasks carried out by POST. Each task is denoted by an
unique check point number. For other unique check point numbers that are not listed in the table, refer to the
corresponding product service guide.
Post Checkpoints List: The list may vary accordingly depending on your BIOS

POST Error Messages List
If you cannot run the diagnostics program tests but did receive a POST error message, use “POST Error
Messages List” to diagnose system problems. If you did not receive any error message, look for a description
of your error symptoms in “Error Symptoms List” on page 120.
NOTE: When you have deemed it necessary to replace an FRU, and have done so, you must run a total
system check to ensure that no other activity has been affected by the change. This system check can
be done through the diagnostics program.
NOTE: Check all power supply voltages, switch, and jumper settings before you replace the main board. Also
check the power supply voltages if you have a “system no-power” condition.
If you are unable to correct the problem by using the “BIOS Messages List” table and “Error Symptoms List”
table, go to “Undetermined Problems”.
To diagnose a problem, first find the BIOS error messages in the left column. If directed to a check procedure,
replace the FRU indicated in the check procedure. If no check procedure is indicated, the first Action/FRU
listed in right column is the most likely cause.
BIOS Messages
59
Action/FRU
BIOS ROM checksum error - System halted
The checksum of the BIOS code in the BIOS chip is
incorrect, indicating the BIOS code may have
become corrupt. Contact your system dealer to
replace the BIOS.
CMOS Battery Failed
The CMOS battery is no longer functional. Contact
your system dealer for a replacement the BIOS.
CMOS Checksum Error- defaults loaded
Checksum of CMOS is incorrect, so the system
loads the default equipment configuration. A
checksum error may indicate that CMOS has
become corrupt. A weak battery may have caused
this error. Check the battery and replace if
necessary.
CPU at nnnn
Displays the running speed of CPU.
Display switch is set incorrectly
The display switch on the motherboard can be set to

AUTO.
HARD DISK initializing - Please wait a moment
Some hard drives require extra time to initialize.
HARD DISK INSTALL FAILURE
Cannot find or initialize the hard drive controller or
the drive. Make sure the controller is installed
correctly. If no hard drives are installed, be sure the
Hard Drive Selection in Setup is set to NONE.
Hard disk(s) diagnosis fail
The system may run specific disk diagnostic
routines. This message appears if one or more hard
disks return an error when the diagnostics run.
Chapter 4
BIOS Messages
Action/FRU
Keyboard Error Or No Keyboard Present
Cannot initialize the keyboard. Make sure the
keyboard is attached correctly and no keys are
pressed during POST. To purposely configure the
system without a keyboard, set the error halt
condition in Setup to HALT ON ALL, BUT
KEYBOARD. The BIOS then ignores the missing
keyboard during POST.
Keyboard is locked out - Unlock the key
This message usually indicates that one or more
keys have been pressed during the keyboard tests.
Be sure no objects are resting on the keyboard.
Memory Test:
This message displays during a full memory test,
counting down the memory areas being tested.
Memory test fail
If POST detects an error during memory testing,
additional information appears giving specifics about
the type and location of the memory error.
Override enabled - Defaults loaded
If the system cannot boot using the current CMOS
configuration, the BIOS can override the current
configuration with a set of BIOS defaults designed
for the most stable, minimal-performance system
operations.
Press TAB to show POST screen
System OEMs may replace the Phoenix
Technologies Award BIOS POST display with their
own proprietary display. Including this message in
the OEM display permits the operator to switch
between the OEM display and the default POST
display.

hard drive.
Primary slave hard disk fail
POST detects an error in the secondary master IDE
hard drive.

Connecting 20/24-pin power cable
Users please note that the 20-pin and 24-pin power cables can both be connected to the ATX1 connector.
With the 20-pin power cable, just align the 20-pin power cable with the pin 1 of the ATX1 connector. However,
using 20-pin power cable may cause the system to become unbootable and unstable because of insufficient
electricity. A minimum power of 300W is recommend for a fully-configured system.
Illustration
Description
Users please note that when installing 20-pin power
cable, the latch of power cable falls on the left side of
the ATX1 connector latch, just as the picture shows.
20-pin power cable
Users please note that when installing 24-pin power
cable, the latches of power cable and the ATX1
match perfectly.

Description
Hard Drive Activity LED
Connecting pins 1 and 3 to a front panel mounted LED
provides visual indication that data is being read from or
written to the hard drive. For the LED to function properly, an
IDE drive should be connected to the onboard IDE interface.
The LED will also show activity for devices connected to the
SCSI (hard drive activity LED) connector.
Power / Sleep / Message Waiting
LED
Connecting pins 2 and 4 to a single- or dual-color, front panel
mounted LED provides power on/off, sleep, and message
waiting indication.
Reset Switch
Supporting the reset function requires connecting pins 5 and
7 to a momentary-contact switch that is normally open. When
the switch is closed, the board resets and runs POST.
Power Switch
Supporting the power on/off function requires connecting pins
6 and 8 to a momentary-contact switch that is normally open.
The switch should maintain contact for at least 50 ms to signal
the power supply to switch on or off. The time requirement is
due to internal de-bounce circuitry. After receiving a power on/
off signal, at least two seconds elapses before the power
supply recognizes another on/off signal.
