Introduction

The 586IVX is a Pentiumâ processor-classsystem board supporting Intel Pentiumâ Processor with MMX Technology and Intel Pentiumâ processors running at 75MHz, 90MHz, 100MHz, 120MHz, 133MHz, 150MHz, 166MHz and 200MHz frequencies. The 586IVX also supports Cyrixâ 6x86™ P120+/P133+/P150+/P166+ andAMD-K5PR75/PR90/ PR100/PR120/PR133/PR166 processors.

The 586IVX system board can support 8MB to 128MB of system memory. It is equipped with 4 SIMM sockets using EDO or fast page mode x32 DRAM. This system board also supports 256KB pipeline burst SRAM.

The 586IVX design is based on the Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) local bus and Industry Standard Architecture (ISA) standards. It is equipped with 3 dedicated PCI slots, 3 dedicated 16-bitISA slots and 1 shared PCI/ISA slot.

The 586IVX is equipped with two NS16C550A-compatibleserial ports, an SPP/ECP/EPP parallel port, a shrouded floppy disk header, and two shrouded PCI IDE headers with bus mastering capabilities that highly reduce CPU use during disk transfer. This system board is also equipped with one PS/2 mouse port, one PS/2 keyboard port, two USB ports and one IrDA connector for wireless connectivity between your computer and peripheral devices.

The 586IVX system board is designed to fit into an ATX form factor case. Using an ATX power supply, you can either shut down your computer by pressing the Power button located on the front bezel of your computer or by executing the Shut Down command under the Windows 95 operating system.

Chapter 2

Hardware Installation

This chapter summarizes the steps to install the 586IVX system board into your system unit. It also includes a description of the area in which you must work and directions for memory installation. Before installing the system board, obtain the memory you plan to install. Refer to the System Memory section for the number and type of memory modules needed for the amount of memory you require.

Preparing the Area

Before unpacking the system board, make sure the location you have selected is relatively free of dust and static electricity. Excessive exposure to dust, static electricity, direct sunlight, excessive humidity, extreme cold, and water can damage the operational capabilities of your system board. Avoid placing the unit on surfaces such as carpeted floors. These areas also attract static electricity which can damage some circuits on your system board.

Make sure the power source has a properly grounded, three-prongedsocket. It is essential that the power connection be properly grounded for correct functioning of your system board. For further protection, we recommend that you use a surge suppressor. This will protect the system board from damage that may result from a power surge on the electrical line.

Move items that generate magnetic fields away from your system board since magnetic fields can also damage your system board. Once you have selected the ideal location, unpack the 586IVX system board carefully.

Handling the System Board

It is quite easy to inadvertently damage your system board even before installing it in your system unit. Static electrical discharge can damage computer components without causing any signs of physical damage. You must take extra care in handling the system board to ensure against electrostatic build-up.

Static Electricity Precautions

1.To prevent electrostatic build-up,leave the board in itsanti-staticbag until you are ready to install it.

2.Wear an antistatic wrist strap.

3.Do all preparation work on a static-freesurface with the system board components facing up.

4.Hold the system board by its edges only. Be careful not to touch any of the components, contacts or connections, especially gold contacts, on the board.

5.Avoid touching the pins or contacts on all modules and connectors. Hold modules and connectors by their ends.

Warning:

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can damage your processor, disk drives, add-inboards, and other components. Perform the upgrade instruction procedures described at an ESD workstation only. If such a station is not available, you can provide some ESD protection by wearing an antistatic wrist strap and attaching it to a metal part of the system chassis. If a wrist strap is unavailable, establish and maintain contact with the system chassis throughout any procedures requiring ESD protection.

Installing the System Board

If you are installing the 586IVX system board, the following outlines the basic installation steps. Before installing the system board into your system unit, you should prepare the tools you will need.

You will need:

One medium size, flat-bladedscrewdriver

One medium Phillips screwdriver

One needle-nosedpliers

One small nutdriver

1.Unlock your system unit. Turn off the power and disconnect all power cords and cables.
