Set Jumpers on the Motherboard Install System Memory Modules Install the Central Processing Unit (CPU) Install Expansion Cards Connect Ribbon Cables, Cabinet Wires, and Power Supply Setup the BIOS Software WARNING! Computer motherboards, baseboards and components, such as SCSI cards, contain very delicate Integrated Circuit (IC) chips. To protect them against damage from static electricity, you should follow some precautions whenever you work on your computer. 1. Unplug your computer when working on the inside. 2. Use a grounded wrist strap before handling computer components. If you do not have one, touch both of your hands to a safely grounded object or to a metal object, such as the power supply case. 3. Hold components by the edges and try not to touch the IC chips, leads or connectors, or other components. 4. Place components on a grounded antistatic pad or on the bag that came with the component whenever the components are separated from the system.
Heatsink Clip Legs
WARNING! Make sure the heatsink is mounted tightly against the SECC, SECC2 or SEPP; otherwise, the CPU will overheat. You may install an auxiliary fan to provide adequate circulation across the processors passive heatsink.
3. Insert the SECC/SECC2/SEPP SECC with Pentium II only: Push the SECCs two locks inward until you hear a click (the picture in step 2 shows the locks in the outward position and inward in the picture below).

IV. BIOS Power Management 50
PWR Up On Modem Act (Enabled) This allows either settings of Enabled or Disabled for powering up the computer (turns the ATX power supply on) when the modem receives a call while the computer is Soft Off. NOTE: The computer cannot receive or transmit data until the computer and applications are fully running, thus connection cannot be made on the first try. Turning an external modem off and then back on while the computer is off causes an initialization string that will also cause the system to power on. AC PWR Loss Restart (Disabled) This allows you to set whether you want your system to boot up after the power has been interrupted. Disabled leaves your system off after reapplying power and Enabled boots up your system after reapplying power. Power Up By Keyboard (Disabled) This allows the computer to be powered on by pressing any key on the keyboard. Set of Enabled to set this feature. WARNING: This setting must coincide with the keyboard power up jumper setting or else conflicts will occur. Wake On LAN (Enabled) This allows you to remotely power up your system through your network by sending a wake-up frame or signal. With this feature, you can remotely upload/download data to/from systems during off-peak hours. Set to Enabled to set this feature. IMPORTANT: This feature requires the ASUS PCI-L101 LAN Card and an ATX power supply with at least 720mA +5V standby power. Automatic Power Up (Disabled) This allows you to have an unattended or automatic power up of your system. You may configure your system to power up at a certain time of the day by selecting Everyday, which will allow you to set the time or at a certain time and day by selecting By Date.
IV. BIOS Power Management
PNP and PCI Setup
The PNP and PCI Setup option configures the PCI bus slots. All PCI bus slots on the system use INTA#, thus all installed PCI cards must be set to this value.
Details of PNP and PCI Setup
PNP OS Installed (No) This field allows you to use a Plug-and-Play (PnP) operating system to configure the PCI bus slots instead of using the BIOS. Thus interrupts may be reassigned by the OS when Yes is selected. When a non-PnP OS is installed or to prevent reassigning of interrupt settings, select the default setting of No. Slot 1 IRQ (Auto) / Slot 2/Audio IRQ (5) / Slot 3 IRQ (Auto) These fields set how IRQ use is determined for each PCI slot. The default setting for Slot 1 IRQ and Slot 2 IRQ is Auto, which uses auto-routing to determine IRQ use. The other options are manual settings of NA, 3, 4, 5, 7, 9, 10, 11, 12, 14, or 15 for each slot. The default setting for Slot 2/Audio IRQ is 5. PCI Latency Timer (32 PCI Clock) The default setting of 32 PCI Clock enables maximum PCI performance for this motherboard. IRQ xx Used By ISA (No/ICU) These fields indicate whether or not the displayed IRQ for each field is being used by a legacy (non-PnP) ISA card. Two options are available: No/ICU and Yes. The first option, the default value, indicates either that the displayed IRQ is not used or an ISA Configuration Utility (ICU) is being used to determine if an ISA card is using that IRQ. If you install a legacy ISA card that requires a unique IRQ, and you are not using an ICU, you must set the field for that IRQ to Yes. For example: If you install a legacy ISA card that requires IRQ 10, then set IRQ10 Used By ISA to Yes.... 52 ASUS P2B-VM Users Manual
Load Setup Defaults
The Load Setup Defaults option allows you to load the default values to the system configuration fields. These default values are the optimized configuration settings for the system. To load these default values, highlight Load Setup Defaults on the main screen and then press <Enter>. The system displays a confirmation message on the screen. Press <Y> and then <Enter> to confirm. Press <N> and then <Enter> to abort. This feature does not affect the fields on the Standard CMOS Setup screen.
IV. BIOS Load Defaults 54 ASUS P2B-VM Users Manual
Supervisor Password and User Password
These two options set the system passwords. Supervisor Password sets a password that will be used to protect the system and the Setup utility; User Password sets a password that will be used exclusively on the system. By default, the system comes without any passwords. To specify a password, highlight the type you want and then press <Enter>. A password prompt appears on the screen. Taking note that the password is case sensitive, and can be up to 8 alphanumeric characters long, type in your password and then press <Enter>. The system confirms your password by asking you to type it again. After setting a password, the screen automatically reverts to the main screen.
To implement password protection, specify in the Security Option field of the BIOS Features Setup screen when the system will prompt for the password. If you want to disable either password, press <Enter> instead of entering a new password when the Enter Password prompt appears. A message confirms the password has been disabled.
NOTE: If you forget the password, see CMOS RAM for procedures on clearing the CMOS.
IV. BIOS Passwords
IDE HDD Auto Detection
The IDE HDD Auto Detection option detects the parameters of an IDE hard disk drive, and automatically enters them into the Standard CMOS Setup screen.
Up to four IDE drives can be detected, with parameters for each listed inside the box. To accept the optimal entries, press <Y> or else select from the numbers displayed under the OPTIONS field (2, 1, 3 in this case); to skip to the next drive, press <N>. If you accept the values, the parameters will appear listed beside the drive letter on the screen. The process then proceeds to the next drive letter. Pressing <N> to skip rather than to accept a set of parameters causes the program to enter zeros after that drive letter. Remember that if you are using another IDE controller that does not feature Enhanced IDE support for four devices, you can only install two IDE hard disk drives. Your IDE controller must support the Enhanced IDE features in order to use Drive E and Drive F. The onboard PCI IDE controller supports Enhanced IDE, with two connectors for connecting up to four IDE devices. If you want to use another controller that supports four drives, you must disable the onboard IDE controller in the Chipset Features Setup screen. When auto-detection is completed, the program automatically enters all entries you accepted on the field for that drive in the Standard CMOS Setup screen. Skipped entries are ignored and are not entered in the screen. If you are auto-detecting a hard disk that supports the LBA mode, three lines will appear in the parameter box. Choose the line that lists LBA for an LBA drive. Do not select Large or Normal. The auto-detection feature can only detect one set of parameters for a particular IDE hard drive. Some IDE drives can use more than one set. This is not a problem if the drive is new and empty.

Windows 95 enhanced display driver
The Windows 95 enhanced display driver is capable of using monitor timing data contained within Windows 95. This data is selected by configuring a monitor type at Windows 95 installation time or through the Settings page of the display properties sheet. The Windows 95 enhanced display driver may incorrectly interpret Windows 95 monitor timing data for some older monitors which require interlaced modes. This may cause some options to be disabled. A solution to this problem is to select one of the (Standard monitor types) available through the Settings page of the display properties sheet. If you change the selected monitor type through the Settings page of the Display Properties sheet the new timing data may not take effect until after restarting Windows 95. A solution to this problem is to always restart Windows 95 after changing the monitor type. In Windows 95, display drivers can be installed using the Add New Hardware wizard. This is not recommended because when the Windows 95 enhanced display driver is installed using the Add New Hardware wizard, the Settings page does not get installed into the Display Adapter Property sheet.
