BIOS determines whether the motherboard is set for normal operation or a continuous loop of POST.
If there are no floppy drives installed, be sure the Diskette Drive selection in Setup is set to None Cannot find or initialize the floppy drive controller or the drive. If no floppy drives are installed, be sure the Diskette Drive selection in Setup is set to None or Auto Cannot find or initialize the hard drive controller or the drive. If no hard drives are installed, be sure the Hard Drive selection in Setup is set to None Cannot initialize the keyboard.Then reboot the system If the system cannot boot using the current CMOS configuration, the BIOS can override the current configuration with a set of BIOS defaults designed for the most stable, minimal-performance system operations Award offers a save-a-disk feature for notebook computers. If ESCD is valid, take into consideration of the ESCD's legacy information; Onboard clock generator initialization.This message may appear when the operator restarts the system after a save-to-disk shutdown. Disable respective clock resource to empty PCI & DIMM slots; Early PCI initialization - Enumerate PCI bus number, assign memory & I/O resource, search for a valid VGA device & VGA BIOS, and put it into C000:0Program MTRR of M1 CPU; initialize L2 cache for P6 class CPU & program cacheable range; Initialize the APIC for P6 class CPU; On MP platform, adjust the cacheable range to smaller one in case the cacheable ranges between each CPU are not identical Final USB initialization; NET PC: Build SYSID structure; Switch screen back to text mode; Set up ACPI table at top of memory; Invoke ISA adapter ROM's; Assign IRQ's to PCI devices; Initialize APM; Clear noise of IRQ's Enable L2 cache; Program boot up speed; Chipset final initialization; Power management final initialization; Clear screen and display summary table; Program K^ write allocation; Program P6 class write combining All information has been gathered with permission of the respective BIOS providers.See the Press Tab...message earlier for a description of this feature Initialize 6845 video controller, 8237 DMA controller, 8259 PIC, 8253 timer channel channel 1 initialized; Reset math coprocessor; Disable color and mono video, parity circuits and DMA chips; Clear DMA chips and page registers Keyboard initialization; Initialize NMI, PIE, AIE, UEI, SQWV; Disable video, parity checking and DMA; Math coprocessor reset; Clear all page registers and CMOS RAM shutdown byte; Initialize timers 0, 1, 2 and set EISA timer to a known state; Initialize DMA controllers 0 and 1; Initialize interrupt controllers 0 and 1; Initialize EISA extended registers Initialize chips; Disable NMI, PIE, AIE, UEI, SQWV. Although Bios Central has used reasonable effort to ensure accuracy we are unable to verify all codes posted. Bios Central, or any person associated with Bios Central takes no responsibility for any dmage resulting from the use of this information.Das Phänomen kommt vor, wenn man ein ISDN-Gateway nutzt.
Failure is normally due to invalid information and can be corrected by setting CMOS defaults.
