DS-1000 Series Technical Resources

The following steps will walk you through opening your DS-1000 series case, as well as auto-powering on and clearing CMOS.

How to Enable Auto Power On

The DS series has two options for auto power on. The easiest and most reliable method is to use the hardware switch on the front. The downside of this method is that the power button is completely disabled. If you shut down the PC, you will need to cycle power to restart it. If that is an issue for your case, use option 2 instead.

Option 1: Hardware

  1. Loosen the two Torx T10 screws from the front panel.
  2. They will not come out, but the panel will come loose.
  1. Underneath the panel you will find a switch labeled AT/ATX.
  2. Slide the switch to AT mode.
  3. Auto power on is now enabled.

Option 2: BIOS

  1. Power on the system and immediately press the Del key a few times to access the BIOS.
  2. Navigate over to the Chipset tab and open the South Cluster menu.
  3. Open the Miscellaneous Configuration menu.
  4. Change the option Restore AC Power Loss to [Power on].
  5. Navigate to the Save & Exit tab and choose “Save Changes and Reset”

How to Clear CMOS

Common bootup and power problems can be resolved through a CMOS reset.

  1. Loosen the two Torx T10 screws from the front panel.
  2. They will not come out, but the panel will come loose.
  1. Locate the clear CMOS switch.
  2. Move the switch to the clear position.
  3. Wait 30 seconds.
  4. Restore the switch to the normal position. The CMOS is now clear.
