What is BIOS?
Ans:BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) is a ROM memory on the mainboard that contains important binary codes that initialize and manage the relationships and data flow between all system devices.
Q2.What is BIOS corruption?
Ans:BIOS binary code or system BIOS may be corrupted by
(a) users who flash in incorrect BIOS file
(b) malicious virus attack e.g. CIH
(c) power loss or surge when user is performing system BIOS upgrade
Q3.What is AIR Bus interface?
Ans:AIR (AZZA Intelligent ROM) Bus is an interface on the mainboard. You may use this interface to manage and maintain your system with KeyBIOS. To illustrate, you may recover corrupted system BIOS speedily with KeyBIOS or use KeyBIOS as an alternative Flash ROM when the mainboard's Flash ROM is faulty. For other information on KeyBIOS, please consult the KeyBIOS FAQ.
Q4.What is PC133?
Ans:The term PC133 refers to the system clock of the board which controls the 133 MHz operating speeds of the system memory, the core logic chipset, and the external operating speed of the processor in a PC system. It is measured in Mega Hertz (MHz). Consult the AZZA's authorized dealers or distributors for more information.
Q5.What is Ultra-DMA 66?
Ans:Ultra DMA 66 is a protocol for transferring data between a hard disk drive through the computer's data paths to the computer's random access memory (RAM) at a rate of 66.6 MBps (megabytes per second)
Q6.Which model of AZZA M/B supports Ultra-DMA 66?
Ans:Most of our current models support Ultra-DMA 66 devices. Please consult the authorized dealers or distributors for more information
Q7.How many Ultra-DMA 66 devices can AZZA M/B support?
Ans:Most models support up to 4 Ultra DMA 66 devices with the 2 Ultra DMA ports on board. But with PT-DIBX4, it can support 4 Ultra-DMA 66 devices and another 4 Ultra-DMA 33 devices.
Q8.What is Twin Processor M/B?
Ans:The Twin Processor M/B is an innovative concept designed by AZZA. It comes with both Socket 370 and Slot 1 interfaces, thus offers customers the freedom of choice.
Q9.Do I need to do any jumper setting when I change Socket 370 to Slot 1 when I use the mainboard with Twin Processor interface?
Ans:No, you don't. The system BIOS will detect the CPU automatically.
Q10.Can I use two different types of CPU on a single piece of Twin Processor mainboard at the same time?
Ans:No, you can't. You may only use a single processor of either socket or slot type on the Twin Processor mainboard.
Q11.Which models come with Twin Processor Design?
Ans:Currently, we have 810DM, 810DX, 810DMC, 810DTC, DIBX2+, DIBX4 hav Twin Processor Design.
Q12.What is AMR?
Ans:AMR means Audio / Modem Riser. It's for modem purpose. Intel 810 chipset has a modem capability built into the chip. By placing the sensitive analog components on a riser, higher audio quality and easier modem certification are enabled.
Q13.Which models have AMR Port?
Ans:All AZZA models with either Intel 810, 815 or 820 chipset have AMR port as their standard features. In addition, the AMR port is also found on KX133X, 601TM, 603TM and 694TX.
Q14.What is a Digital Video I/O interface and how can I benefit from it?
Ans:A Digital Video I/O interface is an connector port on AZZA mainboard that allows TV Output card to be connected. Through this Digital Video I/O port and TV Output card, you may use your computer to play VCD and DVD movies and view it on a large TV screen instead of a normal monitor screen.
Q15.Which models have Digital Video I/O interface?
Ans:All AZZA mainboards with either Intel 810, 815 or 820 chipset have a digital video interface.
Q16.What is PC99?
Ans:PC99 is a user friendly standard. The purpose of this standard is to differentiate the external connectors on the mainboard with different colors. This will enhance the users' ease in finding the right connector for the peripherals.
Q17.Does AZZA mainboard come with PC99 connectors?
Ans:Almost all of the AZZA mainboards come with PC99 connectors.
