5 ****** Preface Before using this information and the product it supports, please read the following general information. 1. This Service Guide provides you with all technical information relating to the BASIC CONFIGURATION decided for Acer's "global" product offering. To better fit local market requirements and enhance product competitiveness, your regional office MAY have decided to extend the functionality of a machine (e.g. add-on card, modem, or extra memory capability). These LOCALIZED FEATURES will NOT be covered in this generic service guide. In such cases, please contact your regional offices or the responsible personnel/channel to provide you with further technical details. 2. Please note WHEN ORDERING FRU PARTS, that you should check the most up-to-date information available on your regional web or channel. If, for whatever reason, a part number change is made, it will not be noted in the printed Service Guide. For ACER-AUTHORIZED SERVICE PROVIDERS, your Acer office may have a DIFFERENT part number code to those given in the FRU list of this printed Service Guide. You MUST use the list provided by your regional Acer office to order FRU parts for repair and service of customer machines.

31 ****** System Utilities The manufacturer or the dealer already configures most systems. There is no need to run Setup when starting the computer unless you get a Run Setup message. The Setup program loads configuration values into the battery-backed nonvolatile memory called CMOS RAM. This memory area is not part of the system RAM. NOTE: If you repeatedly receive Run Setup messages, the battery may be bad/flat. In this case, the system cannot retain configuration values in CMOS. Before you run Setup, make sure that you have saved all open files. The system reboots immediately after you exit Setup. 3

32 ****** Entering Setup Power on the computer and the system will start POST (Power On Self Test) process. When the message of "Press DEL to enter SETUP" appears on the screen, press the key of [Delete] to enter the setup menu. NOTE: If the message disappears before you respond and you still wish to enter Setup, restart the system by turning it OFF and On. You may also restart the system by simultaneously pressing [Ctrl+ Alt+ Delete]. The Setup Utility main menu then appears: CMOS Setup Utiliyt— Copyright (c) 1985-20051American Megatrends, Inc.

This field allows you to determine CPU frequency of the system. Options [Enabled], [Disabled]

41 ****** Parameter Spread Spectrum HT Spread Spectrum SSE/SSE2 Instructions Description When the system clock generator pulses, the extreme values of the pulse generate excess EMI. Enabling pulse spectrum spread modulation changes the extreme values from spikes to flat curves, thus reducing EMI. This benefit may in some case be outweighed by problems with timing-critical devices, such as a clock-sensitive SCSI device. Enables or Disables HT Spread Spectrum. HT is Hyper Transport between CPU and North Bridge. This feature controls the availability of the processor's SSE and SSE2 instruction sets. When enabled, the processor's SSE and SSE2 instruction sets are enabled. Software applications can make use of those instructions to better process large amounts of data quickly. When disabled, the processor's SSE and SSE2 instruction sets are disabled. Options [Enabled], [Disabled] [Enabled], [Disabled] [Enabled], [Disabled] Software applications will not be able to use those instructions to process multiple data elements simultaneously. However, the processor's MMX instruction set will still be available for use. It is highly recommended that you leave this BIOS feature at the default setting. 3

44 ****** The following table describes the parameters found in this menu. Parameter IDE Primary/ Second Master/ Slave PIO On-Chip IDE First/Second Channel IDE Primary/Second Master/Slave UDMA IDE DMA Transfer Access SATA 1/2 IDE Prefetch Mode Description The four IDE PIO fields let you set a PIO mode (0-4) for each of the four IDE devices that the onboard IDE interface supports. Modes o through 4 provide increased performance. In Auto mode, the system automatically determines the best mode for each device. The Chipset contains a PCI IDE interface with support for two IDE channels. Select Enabled to activate the first and/or second IDE interface. Select Disabled to deactivate an interface, if you install a primary and/or secondary add-in IDE interface. UDMA (Ultra DMA) is a DMA data transfer protocol that utilized ATA transfer protocol that utilizes ATA commands and the ATA bus to allow DMA commands to transfer data ata maximum burst rate of 33 MB/s. When you select Auto in the four IDE UDMA fields (for each of up to four IDE devices that the internal PCI IDE interface supports), the system automatically determines the optimal data transfer rate for each IDE device. This category allows you to enable or disable DMA transfer access of IDE device (or IDE HDD) Enable/Disab1e Serial-ATA 1 or Serial-ATA-2. SATA 1 control port 1 and 3, SATA 2 control port 2 and 4. The onboard IDE drive interfaces supports IDE prefetching, for faster drive accesses. If you install a primary and/or secondary add-in IDE interface, set this field to Disabled if the interface does not support prefetching. Options [Enabled], [Disabled] [Enabled], [Disabled] 8

45 ****** Parameter IDE HDD Block Mode SATA PORT Speed Settings Description Block mode is also called block transfer, multiple commands, or multiple sectors read/write.
