1. Installing CPU

1.

Pull up the CPU socket level and

up to

CPU Pin 1 and cut edge

90-degreeangle.

 

 

 

2.

Locate Pin 1 in the socket and look

for a

 

(golden) cut edge on the CPU upper interface.

 

Match Pin 1 and cut edge. Then insert the

 

CPU into the socket.

 

3.

Press down the CPU socket level and finish

 

CPU installation.

 

Note: If you do not match the CPU socket Pin 1 and CPU cut edge well,

it may damage the CPU.

6. Install DIMM Modules

This motherboard has three 168-pinDIMM sockets that allow you to install PC100 orPC133 memory up to 1.5GB. This motherboard supports not only SDRAM but also VCM and Registered DRAM.

Tip: The driving capability of new generation chipset is limited due to the lack of a memory buffer (to improve performance). This makes DRAM chip count an important factor to take into consideration when you install DIMMs. Unfortunately, there is no way that the BIOS can identify the correct chip count, you need to calculate the chip count by yourself.

DIMM 2

DIMM 1

7. Connecting ATX and AGP Pro Power Connector

The DX34 / DX34Plus uses Intel® SSI (Server System Infrastructure) type24-pinATX power connector. The6-pinAGP Pro Power connector provides extra +5V and +3.3V power for AGP Pro VGA card. Make sure you plug in the right direction.

16. Power-Onand Load BIOS Setup

After you finish the setting of jumpers and connect correct cables. Power on and enter the BIOS Setup, press <Del> during POST (Power On Self Test). Choose "Load Default Setting" for recommended optimal performance.

Warning: Please avoid of using "Load Turbo Defaults", unless you are sure your system components (CPU, DRAM, HDD, etc.) are good enough for turbo setting.

17. Installing Onboard Sound Driver

This motherboard comes with an AD 1885 AC97 CODEC. You can find the audio driver from the Bonus Pack CD disc autorun menu.

If you encounter any trouble to boot you system, follow the procedures accordingly to resolve the problem.

Start

Turn off the power and unplug the AC power cable, then remove all

of the addon cards and cables, including VGA, IDE, FDD, COM1, COM2 and Printer.

Make sure if the jumper settings for CPU and DRAMs are correct.

Clear CMOS.

Install the VGA card. Then connect your monitor and keyboard.

Turn on the power, and check if

 

No

the power supply and CPU fan

 

 

work properly.

 

 

 

Yes

 

 

Check if there is display.

 

No

 

 

 

Yes

 

 

 

 

 

Press Ctrl, and Alt key at the

 

No

same time, hold them and then

 

 

press Del to see if the

 

 

system reboots.

 

 

Yes

During system rebooting, press Del to enter BIOS Setup. Choose “Load Setup Default".

Turn off the system and

No

reconnect the IDE cable.

 

Check if the system can

 

reboot successfully.

 

The problem was probably caused

by power supply or motherboard failure. Please contact your reseller

or local distributor for repairing.

Perhaps your VGA card or monitor is defective.

It is very possible that your keyboard is defective.

The problem should be caused by the IDE cables or HDD itself.

Yes

Reinstall Windows 95, Windows 98 or Windows NT.
