MANUAL-BIOS 2

  1. 1. Motherboard User’s Guide Chapter 3 BIOS Setup UtilityIntroductionThe BIOS Setup Utility records settings and information of your computer, such asdate and time, the type of hardware installed, and various configuration settings.Your computer applies the information to initialize all the components when boot-ing up and basic functions of coordination between system components.If the Setup Utility configuration is incorrect, it may cause the system to malfunc-tion. It can even stop your computer booting properly. If it happens, you can usethe clear CMOS jumper to clear the CMOS memory which has stored the configu-ration information; or you can hold down the Page Up key while rebooting yourcomputer. Holding down the Page Up key also clears the setup information.You can run the setup utility and manually change the configuration. You might needto do this to configure some hardware installed in or connected to the motherboard,such as the CPU, system memory, disk drives, etc.Running the Setup UtilityEvery time you start your computer, a message appears on the screen before theoperating system loading that prompts you to “Hit <DEL> if you want to runSETUP”. Whenever you see this message, press the Delete key, and the Mainmenu page of the Setup Utility appears on your monitor.

Press Enter to select the highlighted option. Press the Escape key to leavethe setup utility. Press +/-/ to modify the selected field’s values. 18
  2. 2. Chapter 3: BIOS Setup UtilitySome options on the main menu page lead to tables of items with installed valuesthat you can use cursor arrow keys to highlight one item, and press PgUp and PgDnkeys to cycle through alternative values of that item. The other options on the mainmenu page lead to dialog boxes requiring your answer OK or Cancel by selecting the[OK] or [Cancel] key.If you have already changed the setup utility, press F10 to save those changes andexit the utility.
