To get started, you need to pop in the software CD that is included in the box. Once the Autorun box pops up, click on Run and the setup will begin. Setup for the ECS A780GM-AD3 is very simple. The Auto Setup Wizard launches and all you have to do is click on the Setup button. You also have the option to browse the CD and manually install drivers and programs one at a time if you wish.
The auto setup installation begins when you click 'Next'. Then you can select what to install; the chipset selection installs the SATA, chipset, and raid and audio drivers, while the device selection installs the ATI integrated graphics drivers and software.
After a few seconds, the ATI Catalyst Install manager begins its install process automatically. When prompted, click the install button and you can choose to do an express install with default settings or a custom install to customize the settings and location.
Everything will install on its own. After processing, click the Finish button and a prompt will pop up and tell you that you need to restart to complete the installation. Click 'Yes' and let the computer reboot.
Now that the drivers are installed, we can look more closely at the BIOS.
