Mainboard Components

Use the diagram below to identify the major components on the mainboard.
Note: Any jumpers on your mainboard that do not appear in this illustration are for testing only.

Install A CPU

This mainboard has a Socket 370 which supports Celeron PPGA and FCPGA Pentium III processors. To ensure reliability, ensure that your processor has a heatsink/cooling fan assembly. Do not try to install a Socket 7 processor in the Socket-370. A Socket 7 processor such as the Pentium-MMX, or the AMD K5/K6 does not fit in the Socket 370. The following list notes the processors that are currently supported by this mainboard. PPGA Celeron: 300~533MHz, FSB: 66 MHz FCPGA Celeron: 533A~1.0GHz, FSB: 66 MHz, 100MHz FCPGA Pentium III: 500~1.1GHz, FSB: 100MHz, 133MHz
Installing a Socket-370 Processor A processor installs into the ZIF (Zero Insertion Force) Socket-370 on the mainboard. 1. Locate the Socket-370 and FAN1. Pull the locking lever out slightly from the socket and raise it to the upright position.

Pin-1 Corner

Socket-370
2. On the processor, identify the Pin-1 corner by its beveled edge. 3. On the Socket-370, identify the Pin-1 corner. The Pin-1 corner is at the end of the locking lever when it is locked. 4. Match the Pin-1 corners and insert the processor into the socket. No force is required and the processor should drop into place freely. 5. Swing the locking lever down and hook it under the catch on the side of the socket. This secures the CPU in the socket. 6. All processors should be installed with a combination heatsink/cooling fan, connect the cable from the fan to the CPU fan power connector FAN1.

Install Memory

The mainboard has two DIMM sockets for system memory modules. You must install at least one memory module in order to use the mainboard.
For this mainboard, you must use 168-pin, 3.3V unbuffered SDRAM memory modules. If the installed CPU uses a 100MHz system bus, you must use PC100 or PC133 memory. If the installed CPU uses a 66MHz system bus, you must use PC66 memory. You can install any size memory module from 16 MB to 512MB, so the maximum memory size is 2 x 512MB = 1GB. The edge connectors on the memory modules have cut outs, which coincide with spacers in the DIMM sockets so that memory modules can only be installed in the correct orientation.

To install a module, push the retaining latches at either end of the socket outwards. Position the memory module correctly and insert it into the DIMM socket. Press the module down into the socket so that the retaining latches rotate up and secure the module in place by fitting into notches on the edge of the module.

Setting Jumper Switches

Jumpers are sets of pins which can be connected together with jumper caps. The jumper caps change the way the mainboard operates by changing the electronic circuits on the mainboard. If a jumper cap connects two pins, we say the pins are SHORT. If a jumper cap is removed from two pins, the pins are OPEN.
Jumper JP5: Keyboard Power On Selector If you enable the keyboard power on feature, you can use hot keys on your keyboard as a power on/off switch for the system. Note: The system must provide 1A on the +5VSB (+5V Standby) signal before using the Keyboard Power On function.
Function Disable Keyboard Power On Enable Keyboard Power On Jumper Setting Short Pins 1-2 Short Pins 2-3
Jumper JP7: Clear CMOS Memory Use this jumper to clear the contents of the CMOS memory. You may need to clear the CMOS memory if the settings in the Setup Utility are incorrect and prevent your mainboard from operating. To clear the CMOS memory, disconnect all the power cables from the mainboard and then move the jumper cap into the CLEAR setting for a few seconds.
Function Normal Operation Clear CMOS Memory Jumper Setting Short Pins 1-2 Short Pins 2-3

Floppy Disk Drive The mainboard ships with a floppy disk drive cable that can support one or two drives. Drives can be 3.5 or 5.25 wide, with capacities of 360K, 720K, 1.2MB, 1.44MB, or 2.88MB. Install your drives and connect power from the system power supply. Use the cable provided to connect the drives to the floppy disk drive header FLOPPY. IDE Devices IDE devices include hard disk drives, high-density diskette drives, and CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drives, among others. The mainboard ships with an IDE cable that can support one or two IDE devices. If you connect two devices to a single cable, you must configure one of the drives as Master and one of the drives as Slave. The documentation of the IDE device will tell you how to configure the device as a Master or Slave device. The Master device connects to the end of the cable. Install the device(s) and connect power from the system power supply. Use the cable provided to connect the device(s) to the Primary IDE channel connector IDE1 on the mainboard. 15

If you want to install more IDE devices, you can purchase a second IDE cable and connect one or two devices to the Secondary IDE channel connector IDE2 on the mainboard. If you have two devices on the cable, one must be Master and one must be Slave. Internal Sound Connections If you have installed a CD-ROM drive or DVD-ROM drive, you can connect the drive audio cable to the onboard sound system. On the mainboard, locate the two 4-pin connectors CD1 and CD2. There are two kinds of connector because different brands of CDROM drive have different kinds of audio cable connectors. Connect the cable to the appropriate connector.

Expansion Slots

This mainboard has three 32-bit PCI expansion slots and one AMR slot.
AMR1 PCI2 J8WOL connector
Follow the steps below to install a PCI/AMR expansion card. 1. Locate the PCI, AMR slots on the mainboard. 2. Remove the expansion slot cover from the system chassis. 3. Insert the edge connector of expansion card into slot and press it firmly down into so that it is fully inserted. 4. Secure expansion card bracket to the system chassis with a screw holding a slot cover in place. AMR Slot The AMR (Audio Modem Riser) slot is an industry standard slot that allows for the installation of a special audio/modem riser card. Different territories have different regulations regarding the specifications of a modem card. You can purchase an AMR card that is approved in your area and install it directly into the AMR slot. Wake On LAN (WOL) If you are using an ATX power supply you can configure your system so that it powers down by software and can be resumed by alarms. If you have installed a LAN adapter expansion card, connect the card to the Wake On LAN connector J8. This allows incoming traffic to resume the system from a software power down. You need to enable this feature in the system setup utility.

3: BIOS Setup Utility

Chapter 3 BIOS Setup Utility

Introduction

The BIOS Setup Utility records settings and information about your computer such as the date and time, the kind of hardware installed, and various configuration settings. Your computer uses this information to initialize all the components when booting up and functions as the basis for coordination between system components. If the Setup Utility configuration is incorrect, it may cause the system to malfunction. It can even stop your computer from booting properly. If this happens, you can use the clear CMOS jumper to clear the CMOS memory used to store the configuration information, or you can hold down the Page Up key while you reboot your computer. Holding down the Page Up key also clears the setup information. You can run the setup utility and manually make changes to the configuration. You might need to do this to configure some of the hardware that you install on or connect to the mainboard, such as the CPU, system memory, disk drives, etc.

Static Electricity Precautions Components on this mainboard can be damaged by static electricity. Take the following precautions when unpacking the mainboard and installing it in a system. 1. Keep the mainboard and other components in their original static-proof packaging until you are ready to install them. 2. During installation, wear a grounded wrist strap if possible. If you dont have a wrist strap, discharge static electricity by touching the bare metal of the system chassis. 3. Handle the mainboard carefully by the edges. Avoid touching the components unless it is absolutely necessary. During installation put the mainboard on top of the static-protection packaging it came in with the component side facing up.
Pre-Installation Inspection
1. Inspect the mainboard for damage to the components and connectors on the board. 2. If you suspect that the mainboard has been damaged, do not connect power to the system. Contact your mainboard vendor and report the damage.

Chapter 2 Mainboard Installation
To install this mainboard in a system, follow the procedures in this chapter:

q q q q q q q

Identify the mainboard components Install a CPU Install one or more system memory modules Verify that any jumpers or switches are set correctly Install the mainboard in a system chassis (case) Connect any extension brackets or cables to the mainboard connector headers Install any other devices and make the appropriate connections to the mainboard connector headers.
Note: 1. Before installing this mainboard, make sure jumper JP7 is set to Normal, the default setting. See this chapter for information on locating JP7 and the setting options. 2. Never connect power to the system during installation. Doing so may damage the mainboard.

Mainboard Components

Use the diagram below to identify the major components on the mainboard.
Note: Any jumpers on your mainboard that do not appear in this illustration are for testing only.

Install A CPU

This mainboard has a Socket 370 which supports Celeron PPGA and FCPGA Pentium III processors. To ensure reliability, ensure that your processor has a heatsink/cooling fan assembly. Do not try to install a Socket 7 processor in the Socket-370. A Socket 7 processor such as the Pentium-MMX, or the AMD K5/K6 does not fit in the Socket 370. The following list notes the processors that are currently supported by this mainboard. PPGA Celeron: 300~600 MHz, FSB: 66 MHz FCPGA Pentium III: 500~800MHz, FSB: 100MHz, 133MHz Installing a Socket-370 Processor A processor installs into the ZIF (Zero Insertion Force) Socket-370 on the mainboard. 1. Locate the Socket-370 and FAN1. Pull the locking lever out slightly from the socket and raise it to the upright position.

Pin-1 Corner

Socket-370
2. On the processor, identify the Pin-1 corner by its beveled edge.
3. On the Socket-370, identify the Pin-1 corner. The Pin-1 corner is at the end of the locking lever when it is locked. 4. Match the Pin-1 corners and insert the processor into the socket. No force is required and the processor should drop into place freely. 5. Swing the locking lever down and hook it under the catch on the side of the socket. This secures the CPU in the socket. 6. All processors should be installed with a combination heatsink/cooling fan, connect the cable from the fan to the CPU fan power connector FAN1.

Install Memory

The mainboard has two DIMM sockets for system memory modules. You must install at least one memory module in order to use the mainboard.
For this mainboard, you must use 168-pin, 3.3V unbuffered SDRAM memory modules. If the installed CPU uses a 100MHz system bus, you must use PC100 or PC133 memory. If the installed CPU uses a 66MHz system bus, you must use PC66 memory. You can install any size memory module from 16 MB to 512MB, so the maximum memory size is 2 x 512MB = 1GB. The edge connectors on the memory modules have cut outs, which coincide with spacers in the DIMM sockets so that memory modules can only be installed in the correct orientation.
To install a module, push the retaining latches at either end of the socket outwards. Position the memory module correctly and insert it into the DIMM socket. Press the module down into the socket so that the retaining latches rotate up and secure the module in place by fitting into notches on the edge of the module.

Setting Jumper Switches

Jumpers are sets of pins which can be connected together with jumper caps. The jumper caps change the way the mainboard operates by changing the electronic circuits on the mainboard. If a jumper cap connects two pins, we say the pins are SHORT. If a jumper cap is removed from two pins, the pins are OPEN.
Jumper JP5: Keyboard Power On Selector If you enable the keyboard power on feature, you can use hot keys on your keyboard as a power on/off switch for the system. Note: The system must provide 1A on the +5VSB (+5V Standby) signal before using the Keyboard Power On function.
Function Disable Keyboard Power On Enable Keyboard Power On Jumper Setting Short Pins 1-2 Short Pins 2-3
Jumper JP7: Clear CMOS Memory Use this jumper to clear the contents of the CMOS memory. You may need to clear the CMOS memory if the settings in the Setup Utility are incorrect and prevent your mainboard from operating. To clear the CMOS memory, disconnect all the power cables from 11
