Safety Precautions
Before getting started, please read the following important safety precautions.
1.
User should not modify any unmentioned jumper setting without Axiomtek FAE’s
instruction. Any modification without instruction might cause system to become
damage
2.
The tBOX323-835-FL does not come equipped with an operating system. An
operating system must be loaded first before installing any software into the
computer.
3.
Be sure to ground yourself to prevent static charge when installing the internal
components. Use a grounding wrist strap and place all electronic components in any
static-shielded devices. Most electronic components are sensitive to static electrical
charge.
4.
Disconnect the power cord from the tBOX323-835-FL before making any installation.
Be sure both the system and the external devices are turned OFF. Sudden surge of
power could ruin sensitive components. Make sure the tBOX323-835-FL is properly
grounded.
5.
Make sure the voltage of the power source is correct before connecting the
equipment to the power outlet.
6.
Turn OFF the system power before cleaning. Clean the system using a cloth only.
Do not spray any liquid cleaner directly onto the screen.
7.
Do not leave this equipment in an uncontrolled environment where the storage
temperature is below -40℃ or above 80℃. It may damage the equipment.
8.
Do not open the system’s back cover. If opening the cover for maintenance is a must,
only a trained technician is allowed to do so. Integrated circuits on computer boards
are sensitive to static electricity. To avoid damaging chips from electrostatic
discharge, observe the following precautions:

Before handling a board or integrated circuit, touch an unpainted portion of the
system unit chassis for a few seconds. This will help to discharge any static
electricity on your body.

When handling boards and components, wear a wrist-grounding strap, available
from most electronic component stores.

General Cleaning Tips
You may need the following precautions before you begin to clean the computer. When you
clean any single part or component for the computer, please read and understand the details
below fully.
When you need to clean the device, please rub it with a piece of dry cloth.
1. Be cautious of the tiny removable components when you use a vacuum cleaner to
absorb the dirt on the floor.
2. Turn the system off before you start to clean up the component or computer.
3. Never drop the components inside the computer or get circuit board damp or wet.
4. Be cautious of all kinds of cleaning solvents or chemicals when you use it for the
sake of cleaning. Some individuals may be allergic to the ingredients.
5. Try not to put any food, drink or cigarette around the computer.
iv
Cleaning Tools:
Although many companies have created products to help improve the process of cleaning
your computer and peripherals users can also use household items to clean their computers
and peripherals. Below is a listing of items you may need or want to use while cleaning your
computer or computer peripherals.
Keep in mind that some components in your computer may only be able to be cleaned using
a product designed for cleaning that component, if this is the case it will be mentioned in the
cleaning.

Cloth: A piece of cloth is the best tool to use when rubbing up a component. Although
paper towels or tissues can be used on most hardware as well, we still recommend
you to rub it with a piece of cloth.

Water or rubbing alcohol: You may moisten a piece of cloth a bit with some water or
rubbing alcohol and rub it on the computer. Unknown solvents may be harmful to the
plastics parts.

Vacuum cleaner: Absorb the dust, dirt, hair, cigarette particles, and other particles
out of a computer can be one of the best methods of cleaning a computer. Over time
these items can restrict the airflow in a computer and cause circuitry to corrode.

Cotton swabs: Cotton swaps moistened with rubbing alcohol or water are excellent
tools for wiping hard to reach areas in your keyboard, mouse, and other locations.

Foam swabs: Whenever possible it is better to use lint free swabs such as foam
swabs.
NOTE: We strongly recommended that you should shut down the system before you
start to clean any single components.
Please follow the steps below:
1. Close all application programs
2. Close operating software
3. Turn off power switch
4. Remove all device
5. Pull out power cable
v
Scrap Computer Recycling
If the computer equipments need the maintenance or are beyond repair, we strongly
recommended that you should inform your Axiomtek distributor as soon as possible for the
suitable solution. For the computers that are no longer useful or no longer working well,
please contact your Axiomtek distributor for recycling and we will make the proper
arrangement.

The PCI Express Mini Card connectors with support for a PCI Express x1 link and a
USB 2.0 link. A PCI Express Mini Card can be applied to either PCI Express or USB
2.0. The USB 2.0 support will be helpful during the transition to PCI Express,
because peripheral vendors will need time to design their chipsets to have the PCI
Express function. During the transition, PCI Express Mini Cards can be quickly
implemented by using USB 2.0.

of the value is starting. It needs to reset or disable watchdog, otherwise auto -reset
will be running when the value is counted to 0.
How to Use the Watchdog Timer
(Following is example to enable configuration by using debug tool)

Sample of Watchdog application
Assume there is program A which needs to maintain running in a system. T he value
of W atchdog Timer must be set bigger than the running time of program A. Then,
after the running time of program A is finished, either to disable or to reset
watchdog timer.
When program A has problems to make system shut down, the system can be
rebooted by W atchdog timer when the value of watchdog timer is countdowned to 0 .
