Assigning DMA Channels for ISA Cards
Some ISA cards, both legacy and PnP, may also need to use a DMA (Direct Memory Access) channel. DMA assignments for this motherboard are handled the same way as the IRQ assignment process described earlier. You can select a DMA channel in the PCI and PnP configuration section of the BIOS Setup utility. IMPORTANT! To avoid conflicts, reserve the necessary IRQs and DMAs for legacy ISA cards (in PNP AND PCI SETUP under BIOS SETUP, choose Yes in IRQ xx Used By ISA and DMA x Used By ISA for those IRQs and DMAs you want to reserve).
ISA Cards and Hardware Monitor
The onboard hardware monitor uses the address 290H-297H, so legacy ISA cards must not use this address or else conflicts will occur.

5. External Connectors

WARNING! Some pins are used for connectors or power sources. These are clearly separated from jumpers in the motherboard layout. Placing jumper caps over these will cause damage to your motherboard. IMPORTANT! Ribbon cables should always be connected with the red stripe on the Pin 1 side of the connector. The four corners of the connectors are labeled on the motherboard. Pin 1 is the side closest to the power connector on hard drives and some floppy drives. IDE ribbon cable must be less than 18in. (46cm), with the second drive connector no more than 6in. (15cm) from the first connector. 1. Keyboard Connector (5-pin Female) This connection supports either a standard IBM-compatible, 101/102-key, or 104-key keyboard (Windows 95/98-compatible). III.

Power Connection Procedures
1. After all jumpers and connections are made, close the system case cover. 2. Be sure that all switches are off (in some systems, marked with ). 3. Connect the power supply cord into the power supply located on the back of your system case according to your system users manual. 4. Connect the power cord into a power outlet that is equipped with a surge protector. 5. You may then turn on your devices in the following order: a. Your monitor b. External SCSI devices (starting with the last device on the chain) c. Your system power. For ATX power supplies, you need to switch on the power supply as well as press the ATX power switch on the front of the case. 6. The power LED on the front panel of the system case will light. For ATX power supplies, the system LED will light when the ATX power switch is pressed. The monitor LED may light up after the systems if it complies with green standards or if it has a power standby feature. The system will then run power-on tests. While the tests are running, additional messages will appear on the screen. If you do not see anything within 30 seconds from the time you turn on the power, the system may have failed a power-on test. Recheck your jumper settings and connections or call your retailer for assistance. 7. During power-on, hold down <Delete> to enter BIOS setup. Follow the instructions in the next section, BIOS SETUP. *Powering Off your computer: You must first exit or shut down your operating system before switching off the power switch. For ATX power supplies, you can press the ATX power switch after exiting or shutting down your operating system. If you use Windows 95, click the Start button, click Shut Down, and then click Shut down the computer?. The power supply should turn off after Windows shuts down. NOTE: The message You can now safely turn off your computer will not appear when shutting down with ATX power supplies. III. H/W SETUP Power Connections 43

Details of BIOS Features Setup
Boot Virus Detection (Enabled) This field allows you to set boot virus detection, ensuring a virus-free boot sector. This new antivirus solution is unlike native BIOS tools, which offer limited virus protection typically by write-protecting the partition table. With this new solution, your computer is protected against boot virus threats earlier in the boot cycle, that is, before they have a chance to load into your system. This ensures your computer boots to a clean operating system. The system halts and displays a warning message when it detects a virus. If this occurs, you can either allow the operation to continue or use a virus-free bootable floppy disk to restart and investigate your system. Because of conflicts with new operating systems, for example, during installation of new software, you may have to set this to Disabled to prevent write errors. CPU Internal Cache (Enabled) Choose Disable to turn off the CPUs built-in level 1 cache. External Cache (Enabled) Choose Disable to turn off the CPUs external level 2 cache.
Quick Power On Self Test (Enabled) This field speeds up the Power-On Self Test (POST) routine by skipping retesting a second, third, and forth time. Setup default setting for this field is Enabled. A complete test of the system is done on each test. HDD Sequence SCSI/IDE First (IDE) When using both SCSI and IDE hard disk drives, IDE is always the boot disk using drive letter C (default setting of IDE). This new feature allows a SCSI hard disk drive to be the boot disk when set to SCSI. This allows multiple operating systems to be used on both IDE and SCSI drives or the primary operating system to boot using a SCSI hard disk drive. Boot Sequence (A,C) This field determines where the system looks first for an operating system. Options are A,C; A,CDROM,C; CDROM,C,A; CDROM A,C; D,A; E,A; F,A; C only; LS/ZIP,C; LAN,A,C; LAN,C,A; and C,A. The setup default setting, A,C, checks first the floppy disk and then the hard disk drive. Boot Up Floppy Seek (Disabled) When enabled, the BIOS will seek drive A one time. Floppy Disk Access Control (R/W) This allows protection of files from the computer system to be copied to floppy disk drives by allowing the setting of Read Only to only allow reads from the floppy disk drive but not writes. The setup default R/W allows both reads and writes. IDE HDD Block Mode Sectors (HDD MAX) This field enhances hard disk performance by making multi-sector transfers instead of one sector per transfer. Most IDE drives, except older versions, can utilize this feature. Selections are HDD MAX, Disabled, 2, 4, 8, 16, and 32. HDD S.M.A.R.T. capability (Disabled) This field enables or disables S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology) support for S.M.A.R.T.-capable hard disk drives. This technology requires an application that can display S.M.A.R.T. warning messages. PS/2 Mouse Function Control (Auto) The setting of Auto allows the system to detect a PS/2 Mouse on bootup. If detected, IRQ12 will be used for the PS/2 Mouse. If not detected, IRQ12 will be reserved for expansion cards. Enabled will reserve IRQ12 for the PS/2 Mouse. OS/2 Onboard Memory > 64M (Disabled) When using OS/2 operating systems with installed DRAM of greater than 64MB, you need to Enable this option otherwise leave this on the setup default of Disabled.... PCI/VGA Palette Snoop (Disabled) Some display cards that are nonstandard VGA, such as graphic accelerators or MPEG video cards may not show colors properly. Setting this to Enabled should correct this problem. Otherwise, leave this on the default setting of Disabled.

IV. BIOS SETUP Plug & Play/PCI 60
DMA x Used By ISA (No/ICU) These fields indicate whether or not the displayed DMA channel for each field is being used by a legacy (non-PnP) ISA card. Available options include: No/ICU and Yes. The first option, the default setting, indicates either that the displayed DMA channel is not used or an ICU is being used to determine if an ISA card is using that channel. If you install a legacy ISA card that requires a unique DMA channel, and you are not using an ICU, you must set the field for that channel to Yes. ISA MEM Block BASE (No/ICU) This field allows you to set the base address and block size of a legacy ISA card that uses any memory segment within the C800H and DFFFH address range. If you have such a card, and you are not using an ICU to specify its address range, select a base address from the six available options; the ISA MEM Block SIZE field will then appear for selecting the block size. If you have more than one legacy ISA card in your system that requires to use this address range, you can increase the block size to either 8K, 16K, 32K, or 64K. If you are using an ICU to accomplish this task, leave ISA MEM Block BASE to its default setting of No/ICU. SYMBIOS SCSI BIOS (Auto) Auto allows the BIOS to detect whether you have a Symbios SCSI card, if detected the onboard Symbios BIOS will be enabled, if not then it will be disabled. Disabled prevents the onboard Symbios BIOS to be enabled so that the external Symbios SCSI cards own BIOS can be used instead. Note: If your Symbios SCSI card does not have a BIOS the Symbios SCSI card will not function. USB Function (Disabled) This motherboard supports Universal Serial Bus (USB) devices. Set to Enabled if you want to use USB devices. Your system must support USB function. The default setting is Disabled. USB IRQ (Auto) This field allows you to reserve an IRQ# (3, 4, 5, 7, 9, 10, 11, 12, 14, or 15) for the USB to work. Auto assigns an IRQ# automatically to your USB device. If you are not using a USB device, you may disable this feature by setting it to NA to save an extra IRQ# for other devices or expansion cards. ONB VGA BIOS First (No) This field, when set to Yes, gives priority to the onboard VGA BIOS over other VGA controllers. The default setting is No.

You can play audio CDs, wave files (in WAV and.AUD formats), and MIDI files (in.MID and.RMI formats). With the multisource Audio Mixer, you can blend these sources with linein and microphone sources any way you choose. You can then record your creations as wave files and edit them with the Audio Recorder. The AudioRack32 has six main parts: Command Centercustomizes the appearance of the AudioRack32. 3-D/Tone Controllergives your computer ambiient 3D sound, transmitting any sound played through the AudioRack32 into a wider arc. Audio Mixercontrols the volume and balance of the AudioRack32 devices. Digital Audio Playerplays and records files in the.WAV format. MIDI Playerenables you to play MIDI files. Compact Disk Playerenables you to play audio CDs on a CD-ROM drive. In addition, the AudioRack32 has a miniature mode enabling you to control the AudioRack32 while using minimal screen space. The Audio Recorder is a separate application from the AudioRack32. It can be used to add effects and edit files recorded with the Digital Audio Player or by the Audio Recorder itself. The Audio Recorder can be launched from the AudioRack32s Digital Audio Player or on its own. VI. S/W REFERENCE AudioRack 91

The Audio Recorder

The Audio Recorder enables you to record, compress, store, and play back voice, music, and other sound. It provides settings for sound attributes such as mono/stereo, compression level, and sampling rate. You can use it to embed sound objects in documents created in applications that support object linking and embedding (OLE). The Audio Recorders edit, record, and playback capabilities are compatible with the Windows Sound Recorder and other recorders that record and play back in the PCM format. Like the Digital Audio Player, the Audio Recorder can record and play back.WAV and.AUD files. The Audio Recorder allows a choice of compression from low, medium, and high ESPCM and ADPCM. VI.

Release Notes

Disable Eject Button on the CD Player
Under the Windows directory in the file auddrive.ini, there is a string DisableEjectButton=0 under the [cdplayer] section. If you would like to disable EJECT button on the CD player, you can change the value from 0 to 1. You need to close AudioRack and launch it again to make the new settings take effect.

Using AudioRack CD Player as Default CD Player
During installation, you will be asked if you want to use AudioRack CD player as the default CD player. Normally Windows 95 CD player is the default and will automatically run when an audio CD is inserted into the CD-ROM. If you answer Yes, the installation program will overwrite the value of the key [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT]\AudioCD\shell\play\command in the registry. You may switch back to Windows 95 CD player by resetting this key value.
Configuring Playback Mixer
The PCI audio chip offers eight inputs for the playback mixer, including Line, Wave, CD, Synth, Aux A, Aux B, Mic, and Mono In. AudioRack can only display six of them at a time. You may configure the settings by modifying the file auddrive.ini in the Windows directory. Under the section [MixerRak], you can enable or disable the display of each input by setting its corresponding binary value to 1(enable) or 0(disable).
Desktop Management Interface (DMI)
Introducing the ASUS DMI Configuration Utility
This motherboard supports DMI within the BIOS level and provides a DMI Configuration Utility to maintain the Management Information Format Database (MIFD). DMI is able to auto-detect and record information pertinent to a computers system such as the CPU type, CPU speed, and internal/external frequencies, and memory size. The onboard BIOS will detect as many system information as possible and store those collected information in a 4KB block in the motherboards Flash EPROM and allow the DMI to retrieve data from this database. Unlike other BIOS software, the BIOS on this motherboard uses the same technology implemented for Plug and Play to allow dynamic real-time updating of DMI information versus creating a new BIOS image file and requiring the user to update the whole BIOS. This DMI Configuration Utility also allows the system integrator or end user to add additional information into the MIFD such as serial numbers, housing configurations, and vendor information. Those information not detected by the motherboard BIOS and has to be manually entered through the DMI Configuration Utility and updated into the MIFD. This DMI Configuration Utility provides the same reliability as PnP updating and will prevent the refreshing failures associated with updating the entire BIOS. VI. S/W REFERENCE DMI Utility 100

Starting the ASUS DMI Configuration Utility
The DMI Configuration Utility (DMICFG2.EXE) must be used in real mode in order for the program to run, the base memory must be at least 180K. Memory managers like HIMEM.SYS (required by windows) must not be installed. You can boot up from a system diskette without AUTOEXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS files, REM HIMEM.SYS in the CONFIG.SYS, or press <Shift>+<F5> during bootup to bypass your AUTOEXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS files. 1. In Windows, copy DMICFG.EXE to your hard disk drive. 2. Restart your computer and press <Shift>+<F5> during bootup to enter safe mode command prompt. 3. Go to the directory containing DMICFG.EXE. 4. Type DMICFG and press <Enter> to run.
