Power Management Functions
Device Standby Mode
Independent power management timer for hard disk drive devices (0-15 minutes, time step=1 minute). Hard disk drive goes into Standby mode (for ATA standard interface). Disable V-sync to control the VESA DPMS monitor. Resume method: device activated (Keyboard for DOS, keyboard & mouse for Windows). Resume recovery time: 3-5 sec.
Global Standby Mode
Global power management timer (2-120 minutes, time step=10 minutes). Hard disk drive goes into Standby mode (for ATA standard interface). Disable H-sync and V-sync signals to control the VESA DPMS monitor.
Independent power management timer (2-120 minutes, time step=10 minutes) or pushing external switch button CPU goes into SMM. CPU asserts STPCLK# and goes into the Stop Grant State. LED on the panel turns amber color. Hard disk drive goes into SLEEP mode (for ATA standard interface). Disable H-sync and V-sync signals to control the VESA DPMS monitor. Return to original state by pushing external switch button. S1, S3, S4

Suspend to RAM
The system context is maintained in system memory Power is shut to non-critical circuits. Memory is retained, and refreshes continues. All clocks shut except RTC. Return to original state by pushing external switch button & PME events at ACPI mode.
Most systems are already configured by the manufacturer or the dealer. There is no need to run Setup when starting the computer unless you get a Run Setup message.
The Setup program loads configuration values into the battery-backed nonvolatile memory called CMOS RAM. This memory area is not part of the system RAM. NOTE: If you repeatedly receive Run Setup messages, the battery may be bad. In this case, the system cannot retain configuration values in CMOS. Before you run Setup, make sure that you have saved all open files. The system reboots immediately after you exit Setup.

Refers to the portion of memory that is available to standard DOS programs. DOS systems have an address space of 1 MB, but the top 384 KB (called high memory) is reserved for system use. This leaves 640 KB of conventional memory. Everything above 1 MB is either extended or expanded memory. Memory above and beyond the standard 1 MB (megabyte) of base memory that DOS supports. Extended memory is only available in PCs with an Intel 80286 or later microprocessor. Extended memory is not configured in any special manner and is therefore unavailable to most DOS programs. However, MS Windows and OS/2 can use extended memory. Total base, and extended memory, and I/O ROM 384KB available to the system.

Parameter PCI/VGA Palette Snoop
Description This parameter permits you to use the palette snooping feature if you installed more than one VGA card in the system. The PVI/VGA palette snoop function allows the control palette register (CPR) to manage and update the VGA RAMDAC (Digital Analog Converter, a color data storage) of each VGA card installed in the system. The snooping process lets the CPR send a signal to all the VGA cards so that they can update their individual RAMDACs. The signal goes through the cards continuously until all RAMDAC data has been updated. This allows the display of multiple images on the screen. Disabled Enabled
NOTE: Some VGA cards have required settings
for this feature. Check your VGA card manual before setting this parameter.

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 118. 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 on page 122. 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 BIOS ROM checksum error - System halted
Action/FRU 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. The CMOS battery is no longer functional. Contact your system dealer for a replacement the BIOS. 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. Displays the running speed of CPU. The display switch on the motherboard can be set to either monochrome or color. This message indicates the switch is set to a different setting than indicated in Setup. Determine which setting is correct, and then either turn off the system and change the jumper, or enter Setup and change the Video selection. The user may press Esc to skip the full memory test. Cannot find or initialize the floppy drive controller or the drive. Make sure the controller is installed correctly, if no floppy drives are installed, be sure the Diskette Drive selection in Setup is set to NONE or AUTO. Some hard drives require extra time to initialize. 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. The system may run specific disk diagnostic routines. This message appears if one or more hard disks return an error when the diagnostics run. 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. 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.
