VESA plate. The VESA plate does not have an module expansion connector. Be sure that the ports of Elite Slice and the quick release latch and security cable slot of the VESA plate are all on the same side.
VESA plate and slide the quick release latch to the locked position, the four tabs lock the VESA plate to the Elite Slice assembly. If the VESA plate is not correctly oriented, the quick release latch cannot be moved to the locked position and the modules are not secured.
Connecting power The Elite Slice can be connected to a powered port on an HP monitor or it can be connected to an AC outlet using the HP adapter that shipped with the Elite Slice. Power sources not obtained from HP will be rejected.
Connect the AC adapter to the power connector on the rear of the Elite Slice. If you have an HP monitor with a charging port that can supply at least 60 W, you may connect the Elite Slice to the monitor instead of an AC outlet.
NOTE: HP highly recommends that you secure the Elite Slice assembly by attaching a security cable to the rear of the VESA plate. This stops the quick release latch from being moved to the unlocked position and prevents accidental release of the modules.
Synchronizing the optional wireless keyboard and mouse The mouse and keyboard are synchronized at the factory. If they do not work, remove and replace the batteries. If the mouse and keyboard still do not work, then follow this procedure to manually resynchronize the pair.
NOTE: If the mouse and keyboard still do not work, then remove and replace the batteries. If the mouse and keyboard are still not synchronized, then synchronize the keyboard and mouse again. Synchronizing the optional wireless keyboard and mouse...

Installing system memory modules CAUTION: You must disconnect the power cord and wait approximately 30 seconds for the power to drain before adding or removing memory modules. Regardless of the power-on state, voltage is always supplied to the memory modules as long as the computer is plugged into an active AC outlet. Adding or removing memory modules while voltage is present may cause irreparable damage to the memory modules or system board.
Insert the new memory module into the slot at approximately a 30° angle (1), and then press the memory module (2) into the slot so that the latches lock it in place. NOTE: A memory module can be installed in only one way. Match the notch on the module with the tab on the memory module slot.
Removing and replacing a hard drive NOTE: Back up the hard drive before you remove it so that you can transfer the data to the new hard drive. Remove the access panel. For instructions, see Removing the access panel on page Pull the tab (1) to disconnect the hard drive power-and-data cable from the hard drive.
Fasten the four screws (2) to secure the hard drive in the cage. Replace the hard drive cage (1) in the chassis. Be sure that the hard drive connectors are facing the back of the chassis. Align the drive cage tabs with the screw posts in the chassis and fasten the four screws (2) to secure the hard drive.
● Use a portable field service kit with a folding static-dissipating work mat. ● If you do not have any of the suggested equipment for proper grounding, contact an HP authorized dealer, reseller, or service provider.
