|Some of the pages in the book was a bit confusing, but I figered it out What a sweet mobo! Great accessories, worked right out of the box. Minimalist, uncluttered BIOS :-D. SATA RAID on a board this inexpensive is a deal. Great price. Great motherboard. Installed Athlon 3400 and 1 gig ram with no problem. Onboard audio/video very good for price of board none|

1. For power-saving sake, it is strongly recommended to enable AMDs Cool n QuietTM technology under Windows system. See APPENDIX on page 39 to enable AMDs Cool n QuietTM technology. 2. While CPU overheat is detected, the system will automatically shutdown. Before you resume the system, please check if the CPU fan on the motherboard functions properly and unplug the power cord, then plug it back again. To improve heat dissipation, remember to spray thermal grease between the 3. 4. 5. CPU and the heatsink when you install the PC system. Do NOT use a 3.3V AGP card on the AGP slot of this motherboard! It may cause permanent damage! Power Management for USB 2.0 works fine under Microsoft Windows XP SP1 / 2000 SP4. It may not work properly under Microsoft Windows 98/ ME. Although this motherboard offers stepless control, it is not recommended to perform over-clocking. Frequencies other than the recommended CPU bus frequencies may cause the instability of the system or damage the CPU.

K8Upgarde-VM800 is a Micro ATX form factor (9.0-in x 9.6-in, 22.9 cm x 24.4 cm) motherboard. Before you install the motherboard, study the configuration of your chassis to ensure that the motherboard fits into it.
Take note of the following precautions before you install motherboard components or change any motherboard settings.
Before you install or remove any component, ensure that the power is switched off or the power cord is detached from the power supply. Failure to do so may cause severe damage to the motherboard, peripherals, and/or components.
3. 4. 5.
Unplug the power cord from the wall socket before touching any component. To avoid damaging the motherboard components due to static electricity, NEVER place your motherboard directly on the carpet or the like. Also remember to use a grounded wrist strap or touch a safety grounded object before you handle components. Hold components by the edges and do not touch the ICs. Whenever you uninstall any component, place it on a grounded antistatic pad or in the bag that comes with the component. When placing screws into the screw holes to secure the motherboard to the chassis, please do not over-tighten the screws! Doing so may damage the motherboard.
Step 1. Step 2. Step 3.
Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5. Step 6.
The illustration shows how jumpers are setup. When the jumper cap is placed on pins, the jumper is Short. If no jumper cap is placed on pins, the jumper is Open. The illustration shows a 3-pin jumper whose pin1 and pin2 are Short when jumper cap is placed on these 2 pins. Jumper PS2_USB_PWR1
(see p.8, No. 1)
Short pin2, pin3 to enable +5VSB (standby) for PS/2 or +5V +5VSB USB wake up events. Note: To select +5VSB, it requires 2 Amp and higher standby current provided by power supply. JR1 / JL1 Jumper
(see p.8, No. 28)
Note: If the jumpers JL1 and JR1 are short, both the front panel and the rear panel audio connectors can work. Clear CMOS Jumper
(CLRCMOS2) (see p.8, No. 23)
Note: CLRCMOS2 allows you to clear the data in CMOS. The data in CMOS includes system setup information such as system password, date, time, and system setup parameters. To clear and reset the system parameters to default setup, please turn off the computer and unplug the power cord from the power supply. After waiting for 15 seconds, use a jumper cap to short the Clear CMOS jumper for 5 seconds. After shorting the Clear CMOS jumper, please remove the jumper cap. However, please do not clear the CMOS right after you update the BIOS. If you need to clear the CMOS when you just finish updating the BIOS, you must boot up the system first, and then shut it down before you do the clear-CMOS action.
2.6 Onboard Headers and Connectors
Onboard headers and connectors are NOT jumpers. Do NOT place jumper caps over these headers and connectors. Placing jumper caps over the headers and connectors will cause permanent damage of the motherboard!

Besides, to optimize compatibility and performance, please connect your hard disk drive to the primary IDE connector (IDE1, blue) and CD-ROM to the secondary IDE connector (IDE2, black). Serial ATA Connectors
(SATA1: see p.8 No. 16) (SATA2: see p.8 No. 17)
These two Serial ATA (SATA) connectors support SATA data cables for internal storage devices. The current SATA interface allows up to 1.5 Gb/s data transfer rate. Either end of the SATA data cable can be connected to the SATA hard disk or the SATA connector on the motherboard.

ASRock I/O PlusTM accommodates 6 default USB 2.0 ports. If those USB 2.0 ports on the I/O panel are not sufficient, this USB 2.0 header is available to support 2 additional USB 2.0 ports. This USB45 header is shared with the USB 2.0 ports 4,5 on ASRock I/O PlusTM. When using the front panel USB ports by attaching the front panel USB cable to this header (USB45), the USB ports 4,5 on ASRock I/O PlusTM will not be able to function. This header supports an optional wireless transmitting and receiving infrared module. These connectors allow you to receive stereo audio input from sound sources such as a CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, TV tuner card, or MPEG card. This is an interface for front panel audio cable that allows convenient connection and control of audio devices.

TSD-QA-34 (Aug 24th, 2005)
Q: I am using P4Dual-915GL/ 775Dual-915GL. After updating the VGA driver from 188.8.131.5243 to 184.108.40.20699, the maximum memory allocated for graphics became 192MB. Why? A: The capacity of maximum memory allocated for graphics is controlled by Intel VGA driver. The Intel VGA driver-220.127.116.1199 only supports the maximum memory allocated for graphics 192MB.
Q: My motherboard is P4VM800/ 775VM800/ P4V88+/ 775V88+/ P4Dual-880Pro/ 775Dual-880Pro/ K8Upgrade-VM800. I used it with SATA hard drive with RAID condition under Windows XP. If I log on with a limited user account, the system will show an error (see below picture), what should I do?
