AOpen assumes no responsibility for any errors or inaccuracies that may appear in this manual, including the products and software described in it. This Online Manual will introduce to the user how this product is installed. All useful information will be described in later chapters. Please keep this manual carefully for future upgrades or system configuration changes. It also offers Plug-and-Play, which helps save users from configuration problems, thus making system user-friendly.
This page gives you a quick procedure on how to install your system. Follow each step accordingly. This chapter describes jumpers, connectors and hardware devices of this motherboard. Electrostatic discharge ESD can damage your processor, disk drives, expansion boards, and other components. Always read the following precautions before you install a system component. Do not remove a component from its protective packaging until you are ready to install it. Wear a wrist ground strap and attach it to a metal part of the system unit before handling a component.
Also you can visit AOpen official web site: You can clear CMOS to restore system default setting. To clear the CMOS, follow the procedure below. Turn off the system and unplug the AC power. Locate ;ro and short pins for a few seconds. To finish CPU installation, please follow the procedure as shown below: Locate Pin 1 in the socket and look for a black dot a4bs cut edge on the 1. Peo cut edge Note: This motherboard comes with a retention module attached on the CPU socket when shipped, we strongly recommend you to install AOpen special designed CPU fan as shown below on the retention module for better heat ventilation.
Please correctly install the CPU fan according to following steps. The disadvantages of original Pentium based jumper-less designs are eliminated.

There will be no worry of wrong CPU voltage detection anymore. The CPU core voltage will be automatically detected and the range is from 1. No jumpers or switches are needed. Please follow the procedure as shown to install memory. Locate the power switch cable from your ATX housing. It is 2-pin female connector from the housing front panel. Make sure you plug in the right direction.
We strongly recommend you to connect the 4-pin 12V ATX connector before connecting the pin ATX power connector and use standard power supply specially designed for Prp 4 system. This design is inconvenient for a network server or workstation, without an UPS, that needs to stay power-on.
This motherboard provides keyboard and mouse wake-up functions. You can use the JP28 to enable or disable this function.
You also can maual to AOpen official website: For clear identification, the blue connector is IDE1.
Be careful of the pin1 orientation. Wrong orientation may cause system damage. Each channel supports two IDE devices that make a total of four devices. In order to work together, the two devices on each channel must be set differently to Master and Slave mode. The IrDA connector can be configured to support wireless infrared module, with this module and application software such as Laplink or Windows 95 Direct Cable Connection, the user can transfer files to or from laptops, notebooks, PDA devices and printers.
This feature is very similar as Wake On Modem, but it goes through local area network. 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 network management software, such as ADM, for the checking of how to wake up the system. The AGP 4x is a bus interface targeted for high-performance 3D graphic.

Recently, there are more memory modules on the AGP card. Hence, the AGP card needs more power to drive these chips. The view angle of drawing shown here is from the back panel of the housing. This motherboard supports four USB ports. Two of them are on back panel connector, the other two are on the left side of this motherboard. With proper cable, you can connect them to front panel. This function logged the event in the system BIOS when chassis is aoen.
You can use the 2-pin chassis intrusion sensor to connect with this header, and enable the chassis monitoring function of system BIOS. Please note that there is no mznual for this kind of connector yet, only some internal modem cards implement this connector. It can clearly indicate whether there is a component issue or an installed issue by the 8 LEDs on the front panel of Dr.
This helps you quickly self-diagnostic your system status. If you want to by Dr. LED, please contact the local distributor or reseller. LED is exactly the same as 5.
The total 8 LEDs light up alternatively if the system fails in one of eight stages. The 8 LEDs indicate the following messages when lit: It can let you easily to know what kind of problem occurred.
aaopen For example, you can design a daughter board to provide additional capabilities, such as an alarm, a buzzer, a timekeeper, etc. The RTC real time clock can also keep running as long as the power cord is plugged. Aax4bs, memory, HDD, add-on cards installed on this motherboard may be damaged because of component failure, human operating error or unknown nature reason.
AOpen cannot guarantee the protection circuit will aopenn work perfectly. This motherboard implements a hardware monitoring system. Traditional motherboard has fuse for Keyboard and port to prevent over-current or shortage. These fuses are soldered onboard that when it is broken did the job to protect motherboarduser still cannot replace it and the motherboard is still malfunction.
With expensive Resettable Fuse, manuak motherboard can back to normal function after fuse did the protection job. The location of where to put these capacitors is another know-how that requires experience and detail calculation. For high frequency operation, especially overclocking, layout is the most important factor to make sure chipset and CPU working in stable condition. Separating each critical portion of motherboard into But after you finish the hardware installation, you have to install your operation system first such as Windows 98 before you can install any drivers or utilities.
You can use the autorun menu of Bonus CD disc to choose the utility and driver you need to install. Select the model of your motherboard.

You can find the audio driver from the Bonus Pack CD disc autorun menu. The hardware monitoring function is automatically implemented by the BIOS and utility software. No hardware installation is needed. It saves your current work system manuap, memory and screen image into hard disk, and then the system can be totally power off. Next time, when power is on, you can resume your original work directly from hard manuao within few seconds without go through the Windows booting process and run your application again.
Fresh installation of Windows 98 on a new system 1. Right click and select Modify, add “01” after “” to make it ” 01″. Please refer to AOpen web site for latest update With this function, you can resume your original work directly from DRAM without going through the Windows 98 booting process and run your application again. Currently, Windows 98 is mwnual only choice.
BIOS provides critical low-level support for standard devices such as hard disk drives, serial and parallel ports.
Hence, the rest of this chapter is intended to guide you through the process of configuring your system using setup.
When you manial one function of BIOS setup program, the function description will appeared After you finish the setting of jumpers and connect correct cables.
Choose “Load Setup Defaults” for recommended optimal performance. By doing so, you are taking a risk of BIOS flash failure. AOpen Easy Flash is a little different than traditional flash method. The BIOS binary file and flash routine are linked together and you simply run a single commend to complete the flash process. Below are the steps for easy flashing procedures: As a leading manufacturer in motherboard industry, AOpen always listens to what customers want and develop products to fit different user’s requirements.
Reliability, compatibility, leading technology and friendly features are our basic sopen when designing motherboards. Other than above mentioned design criteria, there are power users who are always seeking to push the limitation of the system performance by overclocking which we call them “Overclocker”.
