5. Setting CPU Voltage & Frequency

Setting CPU Core Voltage

This motherboard supports CPU VID function. The CPU core voltage will be automatically detected and the range is from 1.05V to 1.825V. It is not necessary to set CPU Core Voltage

Setting CPU Frequency

This motherboard is CPU jumper-lessdesign, you can set CPU frequency through the BIOS setup, no jumpers or switches are needed.

BIOS Setup > Frequency / Voltage Control > CPU Speed Setup

Core Frequency = CPU FSB Clock * CPU Ratio

14. Support 10/100 Mbps LAN onboard

The South Bridge V8233 of VIA Apollo Pro266T chipset includes a fast Ethernet controller on chip. On the strength of Intel 82550 PHY on board, which is a highly-integratedPlatform LAN Connect device, it provides 10/100M bps Ethernet for office and home use, the Ethernet RJ45 connector is located on the back panel. The green LED indicates the link mode, it lights when linking to network and blinking when transferring data. The orange LED indicates the transfer mode, and it lights when data is transferring in 100Mbps mode. To enable or disable this function, you may simply adjust it through BIOS.

15. 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.

16. Wake On LAN

To use Wake On LAN function, you must have a network card with chipset that supports this feature, and connect a cable from LAN card to motherboard WOL connector. The system identification information (probably IP address) is stored on network card and because there is a lot of traffic on the Ethernet, you need to install a network management software, such as ADM, for the checking of how to wake up the system. Note that, at least 600mA ATX standby current is required to support the LAN card for this function.

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 auto-runmenu.

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

re-connectthe 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

Re-installWindows 95, Windows 98 or Windows NT.

Part Number and Serial Number

The Part Number and Serial number are printed on bar code label. You can find this bar code label on the outside packing, on ISA/CPU slot or on component side of PCB. For example:

 

 

 

Part No.

 

Serial No.

Part No. Serial No.

P/N: 91.88110.201 is part number, S/N: 91949378KN73is serial number.
