BIOS Setup

3.1. About the Setup Utility
The computer uses the latest Award BIOS with support for Windows Plug and Play. The CMOS chip on the motherboard contains the ROM setup instructions for configuring the motherboard BIOS. The BIOS (Basic Input and Output System) Setup Utility displays the systems configuration status and provides you with options to set system parameters. The parameters are stored in battery-backed-up CMOS RAM that saves this information when the power is turned off. When the system is turned back on, the system is configured with the values you stored in CMOS. The BIOS Setup Utility enables you to configure: Hard drives, diskette drives and peripherals Video display type and display options Password protection from unauthorized use Power Management features
The settings made in the Setup Utility affect how the computer performs. Before using the Setup Utility, ensure that you understand the Setup Utility options. This chapter provides explanations for Setup Utility options.


The Standard Configuration
A standard configuration has already been set in the Setup Utility. However, we recommend that you read this chapter in case you need to make any changes in the future. This Setup Utility should be used: when changing the system configuration when a configuration error is detected and you are prompted to make changes to the Setup Utility when trying to resolve IRQ conflicts when making changes to the Power Management configuration when changing the password or making other changes to the Security Setup

Chapter 3

Entering the Setup Utility
When you power on the system, BIOS enters the Power-On Self Test (POST) routines. POST is a series of built-in diagnostics performed by the BIOS. After the POST routines are completed, the following message appears: Press <DEL> to enter SETUP Pressing the <Delete> key accesses the BIOS Setup Utility:
BIOS Navigation Keys The BIOS navigation keys are listed below: KEY ESC +/-/PU/PD F10 F1 F5 F6 F7 FUNCTION Exits the current menu Scrolls through the items on a menu Modifies the selected fields values Saves the current configuration and exits setup Displays a screen that describes all key functions Loads previously saved values to CMOS Loads a minimum configuration for troubleshooting Loads an optimum set of values for peak performance


Updating the BIOS
You can download and install updated BIOS for this motherboard from the manufacturers Web site. New BIOS provides support for new peripherals, improvements in performance, or fixes for known bugs. Install new BIOS as follows: 1. If your motherboard has a BIOS protection jumper, change the setting to allow BIOS flashing. 2. If your motherboard has an item called Firmware Write Protect in Advanced BIOS features, disable it. (Firmware Write Protect prevents BIOS from being overwritten.) 3. Create a bootable system disk. (Refer to Windows online help for information on creating a bootable system disk.) 4. Download the Flash Utility and new BIOS file from the manufacturers Web site. Copy these files to the system diskette you created in Step 3. 5. Turn off your computer and insert the system diskette in your computers diskette drive. (You might need to run the Setup Utility and change the boot priority items on the Advanced BIOS Features Setup page, to force your computer to boot from the floppy diskette drive first.) 6. At the A:\ prompt, type the Flash Utility program name and press <Enter>. 7. Type the filename of the new BIOS in the File Name to Program text box. Follow the onscreen directions to update the motherboard BIOS. 8. When the installation is complete, remove the floppy diskette from the diskette drive and restart your computer. If your motherboard has a Flash BIOS jumper, reset the jumper to protect the newly installed BIOS from being overwritten.
