My storage PC-Card is not detected correct


Due to the modern design of the BIOS, it can happen that legacy storage devices are not properly detected or claim to get not enough free memory. This appears often in combination with Windows Error code 12.

Can be cause by PCMCIA Storage cards, CF-Cards with PC-Card Adapter or Multi-Card Readers that can read SD card and several other card formats.

To solve this for Rocky RK10/ RF10 just follow these few easy steps:

  1. Power On and pass F2 into BIOS setting.
  2. Select Chipset -> PCH-IO Configuration
  3. PCI Express Configuration -> PCI Express Port 8
  4. A. PME SCI set to Disable
    B. Extra Bus Reserved set to “7”
    C. Reserved Memory set to “20”
    D. Reserved IO set to “20”

 

To solve this for Panther DR10/ DK10 /DT10 just follow these few easy steps:

How long can I store my computer without loosing CMOS data?


The RTC battery is charged as soon as there is any powersupply like AC-Adapter or Vehicleadapter

  • The RTC Battery can run ~4000h a bit less than half a year.
  • It takes ~50h to fully recharge the RTC battery, because there is only a very small charging current possible.
  • If the RTC Battery is empty, the CMOS default settings are loaded. Alle BIOS settings, date & time and Passwords need to be set.

Recommended Power Settings for Windows 7


ProzessorenergieverwaltungZeitgeber zur Aktivierung zulassen

By default, Win7 does not allow the CPU to step down when using an external power supply.

The advantage of stepping down is not only that the CPU has a lower power consumption but that the computer case does not heat up so much and stays cool.

To allow CPU step down you do the following:

  1. Open the control panel and click on "Hardware and Sound".
  2. Go to "Power Options" and click on "Change battery settings".
  3. After that click for the selected power plan on "Change plan settings".
  4. Go further to "Change advances power settings".
  5. In the just opened window "Power Options", you are able to set the minimum processor state in percent under "Processor power management" > "Minimum processor state" > "Plugged in". It's recommended to use the same settings as for battery usage.


Besides the settings for CPU step down you can change the wake timers for the standby modes. The advantage is, that applications are able to wake up the system automatically from standby mode.

To enable the wake timers you follow the points 1 to 4. After that the wake timers can be enabled under "Sleep" > "Allow wake timers".

How do I install UPDD?


TouchscreenauswahlFortschrittsanzeigeInstallationsabschlussUPDD Icon im SysTray

Before installing UPDD (Universal Pointer Device Driver) uninstall existing drivers for the touchscreen you want to install. After that execute the setup and choose the touchscreen you want to install. If it's a serial touchscreen you have to choose the right COM port. In general it's COM4 for roda Tablet PCs and COM1 for roda Notebooks. (After installation you can add additional touchscreens or remove and change existing touchscreens.)

After successful installation an UPDD icon appears in SysTray. In it's context menu you can e.g. calibrate the touchscreen.
