Chapter 8

BIOS Setup Options

This chapter describes each screen in the PhoenixBIOS Setup Utility (see

“Accessing the BIOS Setup Utility” on page 18).

The Phoenix BIOS setup has six menu items on the menu bar. These are:

Main

Advanced

Security

Power

Boot

❑ Exit

Options that you can change are enclosed in brackets. Text that is not enclosed in brackets cannot be changed.

A small triangle ( ) indicates that there is a sub-menu with additional information and options. Press Enter to open the sub-menu. The information and options in a sub-menu are context-sensitive (they appear or disappear, depending on other selected options).

The item shown in [brackets] in this guide is the default option. The option shown in [brackets] on the screen is the current option. The available options are shown without brackets in this guide, directly below the default option. The available options are listed in the order they occur when you press the + key.

To change an option, use the left and right arrow keys to choose the menu item. Use the up and down arrow keys to select an option. Press Enter if the option is a sub-menu, or press the + or - key to cycle through the other options.
