Jumpers

The motherboard provides one jumper for you to set the computers function. This section will explain how to change your motherboards function through the use of the jumper.

Clear CMOS Jumper: JBAT1

There is a CMOS RAM on board that has a power supply from external battery to keep the data of system configuration. With the CMOS RAM, the system can automatically boot OS every time it is turned on. That battery has long life time for at least 5 years. If you want to clear the system configuration, use the JBAT1 (Clear CMOS Jumper ) to clear data. Follow the instructions below to clear the data:

3 Keep CMOS

3 Clear CMOS
To clear CMOS, first make the #2-3 pin short connected after the system is off. And then power on the WARNING! system and short connect #1-2 pin before entering the BIOS (Standard CMOS Features) to clear data.
Clear BIOS Password Jumper: JPWD1
The jumper is used to clear the BIOS password. To clear the password, open the jumper and restart your computer.

Normal

The motherboard provides three 32-bit Master PCI bus slots and one AGP slot.

AGP Slot PCI Slots

AGP (Accelerated Graphics Port) Slot
The AGP slot allows you to insert the AGP graphics card. AGP is an interface specification designed for the throughput demands of 3D graphics. It introduces a 66MHz, 32-bit channel for the graphics controller to directly access main memory and provides three levels of throughputs: 1x (266Mbps), 2x (533Mbps) and 4x (1.07Gbps). Please especially note that, for enhanced 3D visualization, Intel 845 chipset supports the latest graphics devices through 1.5V AGP 4X interface. No 3.3V AGP 2X interface is supported. Installing 3.3V AGP 2X cards on Intel 845 based mainboards will damage the mainboards.
PCI (Peripheral Component Interconnect) Slots
The PCI slots allow you to insert the expansion cards to meet your needs. When adding or removing expansion cards, make sure that you unplug the power supply first. Meanwhile, read the documentation for the expansion card to make any necessary hardware or software settings for the expansion card, such as jumpers, switches or BIOS configuration.

PCI Interrupt Request Routing
The IRQ, acronym of interrupt request line and pronounced I-R-Q, are hardware lines over which devices can send interrupt signals to the microprocessor. The PCI IRQ pins are typically connected to the PCI bus INT A# ~ INT H# pins as follows:
Order 1 PCI Slot 1 PCI Slot 2 PCI Slot 3 LAN Controller AGP Slot 1394 Controller INT F# INT G# INT D# INT H# INT A# INT H# Order 2 INT G# INT H# INT A# INT E# INT B# Order 3 INT H# INT E# INT B# Order 4 INT E# INT F# INT C#
