# Features

The key feature of this mainboard is the support for PPGA Celeron processors. In addition, this is a full-sized ATX mainboard with a full set of expansion slots for maximum development potential. Support for PPGA Celeron The principal feature of this mainboard is that it can support the latest choice of PPGA Celerons. The new generation PPGA Celeron processors ship in the familiar square plastic package, and they install in a Zero Insertion Force (ZIF) socket called a Socket-370. The new Celeron processors are close to Pentium-II performance because they include a level-2 cache memory of 128K. However, they operate at a 66/100 MHz system bus and they currently ship a clock speeds of 533 MHz. System assemblers can install a second generation PPGA Celeron in the Socket-370 processor socket, and choose the processor they need to meet performance or price targets. You can configure the system for any of the supported processor clock speeds using the BIOS setup utility. It is not necessary to set switches or jumpers. Choice of Memory Options The board has three DIMM slots for the installation of 168-pin, 3.3V standard or registered SDRAM (Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory) memory modules. The system supports memory that has builtin error correction (EC), error correction code (ECC), or has no error correction. If you install the PPGA Celeron processor, you can install memory that operates at 66 MHz (you can install PC-100 memory if you wish, but the system will run the memory at 66 MHz). You can install one, two or three modules. Each memory module can hold a maximum capacity of 128 MB of standard SDRAM chips, or 256 MB of registered SDRAM chips so maximum memory capacity is 384 MB of standard SDRAM memory or 768 MB registered SDRAM memory. Highly Integrated Design This board uses the VIA ET82C693A/596B chipset. The ET82C693A forms the north bridge and supports system buses of 66, 100 and 133MHz. It is AGP Rev. 1 compliant and supports 3.3v AGP devices operating over a 66/133 MHz bus. The memory bus supports the fastest 3

Hard Disks Defaults: Auto These items show the characteristics of any hard disk drives on the four available IDE channels. (Note that SCSI hard disk drives do not appear here.) You can automatically install most modern hard disks using the IDE HDD Auto Detect Option from the main menu. However, if you find that a drive cannot be automatically detected, you can use these items to select USER, and then manually enter the characteristics of the drive. The documentation provided with your drive provides the data you need to fill in the values for CYLS (cylinders), HEAD (read/write heads), and so on. The documentation provided with the drive may not tell you what value to use under the MODE heading. If the drive is smaller than 528 MB, set MODE to Normal. If the drive is larger than 528 MB and it supports Logical Block Addressing, set MODE to LBA. Very few high-capacity drives do not support Logical Block Addressing. If you have such a drive, you might be able to configure it by setting the MODE to Large. If youre not sure which MODE setting is required by your drive, set MODE to Auto and let the setup utility try to determine the mode automatically. Drive A and Drive B Default: None , None These items define the characteristics of any diskette drive attached to the system. You can connect one or two diskette drives. Floppy 3 Mode Support Default: Disabled Floppy 3 mode refers to a 3.5 diskette with a capacity of 1.2 MB. Floppy 3 mode is sometimes used in Japan.

Chipset Features Option

This option displays a table of items which define timing parameters of the mainboard components including the graphics system, the memory, and the system logic. In general rule, you should leave the items on this page at the default values unless you are very familiar with the technical 30
specifications of your hardware. If you change the values, you may introduce fatal errors or recurring instability into your system.

HDD & FDD Default: ON When this item is enabled, it defines system activities which can reset powersaving mode timeouts to zero, or resume the system from a power saving mode. This item is for hard disk and/or diskette drive activity. DMA/master Default: OFF When this item is enabled, it defines system activities which can reset powersaving mode timeouts to zero, or resume the system from a power saving mode. This item is activity through the system DMA controller. Wake Up On LAN Default: Enabled This item allows you to enable or disable the LAN wake up function that is a feature of this mainboard. When enabled, traffic through a network will resume the system from any of the power-saving modes. Modem Ring Resume Default: Disabled This item allows you to enable or disable the modem wakeup function that is a feature of this mainboard. When enabled, traffic through a fax/modem will resume the system from any of the power-saving modes. RTC Alarm Resume Default: Disabled This item lets you install a wakeup alarm, which resumes the system from a power saving mode at a fixed date and time. When the item is enabled, new items appear which allow you to set the date and time of the alarm. Primary INTR Default: On This item acts like a master switch for all the interrupt items that follow. If this item is set to ON, the all the following interrupts can be manually configured to act as resets for the power saving timeouts. If this item is set to OFF, then all the following interrupt items cannot be used to reset the power saving timeouts. IRQX These interrupt events can act as triggers to reset the power saving timeouts or other system maintenance tasks. If you set an interrupt event to Primary, any activity on that interrupt will reset the timeouts that use the primary timer (e.g. the power saving modes). If you set an interrupt to Secondary, then any activity on the interrupt will reset those timeouts that use the secondary timer (usually background maintenance tasks). If you set an interrupt event to Disabled, any activity on the interrupt will not reset the timeouts.
PNP/PCI Configuration Option
This option displays a table of items that configures how PNP (Plug and Play) and PCI expansion cards operate in your system.
PNP OS Installed Default: No If you have installed a Plug and Play operating system such as Windows 95 or 98, you can change this item to Yes. When the item is set to Yes you can use the Device Manager utility in the operating system to make changes to the configuration of expansion cards. Resources Controlled By Default: Manual You should leave this item at the default Manual. If you find that you cannot get a particular expansion card to work properly, you might be able to solve the problem by changing this item to Manual, and defining the characteristics of the card in the new items which appear. In the default Manual, the display will list a series of items that allow you to define the assignments of the system interrupt lines (IRQs) and Direct Memory Access (DMA) channels. As a default, these items are set to PCI/ISA PnP. If you install an ISA-bus card that does not support PNP, and it requires a special IRQ and DMA, you can modify the list of assignments. Change the values of the IRQ and DMA that are required to Legacy ISA. Reset Configuration Data Default: Disabled If you enable this item and restart the system, any PNP configuration data stored in the BIOS setup will be cleared from memory. New updated configuration data will be created. Assign IRQ for USB Default: Enabled When this item is enabled, the system will assign an IRQ to the USB ports.

Load BIOS Defaults Option
This option displays a dialog box which allows you to install BIOS defaults for all appropriate items in the whole setup utility. Press the Y key and then the Enter key to install the defaults. Press the N key and then Enter to not install the defaults. The BIOS defaults do not place great demands on the system and are generally very stable. If your system is not running correctly, you might like to install the BIOS defaults as a first step in getting your system working properly again. If you only want to install BIOS defaults for a specific option, select and display the option, and press the F6 key.
Load Setup Defaults Option
This option displays a dialog box which allows you install setup defaults for all appropriate items in the whole setup utility. Press the Y key and then the Enter key to install the defaults. Press the N key and then Enter to not install the defaults. The setup defaults can place some demands on the system that are greater than the performance level of the components, such as the processor and the memory. You could cause fatal errors or recurring instability of you install the optimum defaults when your hardware does not support it. If you only want to install optimum settings defaults for a specific option, select and display that option, and then press the F7 key.
Integrated Peripherals Option
This option displays a list of items which defines the operation of some peripheral items on the systems input/output ports.
OnChip IDE Channel0 Default: Enabled OnChip IDE Channel1 Default: Enabled You can use these items to enable or disable the primary (0) and secondary (1) IDE channels that are built into this mainboard. When one or both channels are enabled, items appear which allow you to set the PIO (programmable input/output) mode and the UltraDMA mode for master and slave devices on the channels. We recommend that you leave these items at the default value Auto. The system will then automatically use the best performance PIO mode and UltraDMA mode for each device. IDE Prefetch Mode Default: Enabled The built-in IDE drive interfaces support IDE prefetching for faster drive accesses. If you use an alternative IDE interface (on an expansion card), disable this field if the alternate IDE interface does not support prefetching. IDE HDD Block Mode Default: Enabled IDE hard disks can deliver better performance if they use block mode transfer. Most modern hard disk drives support block mode transfers so this item is Enabled as a default. IDE Primary Master PIO Default: Auto IDE Primary Slave PIO Default: Auto IDE Secondary Master PIO Default: Auto IDE Secondary Slave PIO Default: Auto Each IDE channel supports a master device and a slave device. These four items let you assign which kind of PIO (Programmed Input/Output) is used by IDE devices. You can choose Auto, to let the system auto detect which PIO mode is best, or you can install a PIO mode from 0-4.

Supervisor Password and User Password
These two items can be used to install a Supervisor Password and a User Password. If you log on as Supervisor, you have full access to the system, and you can restrict the permissions granted to someone who logs on as User. For example, a Supervisor can restrict a User from entering the setup utility. To install a Supervisor or User Password, follow these steps: 1. Highlight the item Supervisor/User password on the main menu and press Enter. 2. The password dialog box will appear. 3. If you are installing a new password, carefully type in the password. You cannot use more than 8 characters or numbers. The password will differentiate between upper case and lower characters. Press Enter after you have typed in the password. If you are deleting a password that is already installed just press Enter when the password dialog box appears.
4. The system will ask you to confirm the new password by asking you to type it in a second time. Carefully type the password again and press Enter, or just press Enter if you are deleting a password that is already installed. 5. If you typed the password correctly, the password will be installed.
IDE HDD Auto Detection Option
