  • Page 14: Connecting The Optional Slice Vesa Plate

    Align the module connection port on the underside of the Elite Slice G2 with the module expansion connector on the new module and press the computer down firmly. You should hear a quiet click when the modules lock together. The module locks into place and hides the release latch of the module above it.
  • Page 15 Slide the quick release latch on the back of the VESA Plate to the locked position to lock all modules together. CAUTION: There are four tabs in the VESA Plate. When you position the Elite Slice G2 configuration correctly onto the VESA Plate and slide the quick release latch to the locked position, the four tabs lock the VESA Plate to the Elite Slice G2 assembly.
  • Page 16: Removing Modules

    Removing modules CAUTION: Before disconnecting modules, turn off the Elite Slice G2 and disconnect it from any AC power source. Modules cannot be “hot-plugged” or “hot-swapped.” Modules must be removed one at a time, starting at the bottom. Removing the bottom module exposes the release latch of the module above it.
  • Page 17: Attaching The Elite Slice G2 To A Mounting Device

    NOTE: HP highly recommends that you secure the Elite Slice G2 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.
  • Page 18: Connecting Ac Power

    The security cable is designed to act as a deterrent, but it may not prevent the computer from being mishandled or stolen. Connecting AC power The Elite Slice G2 employs the HP Cable and Port Cover to supply power to the elements of the conferencing solution. Connect the Cable and Port Cover to the Elite Slice G2: Pull the port cover down (1) to expose the cable connectors.

  • Page 34: Installing System Memory Modules

    Installing system memory modules IMPORTANT: You must disconnect the AC 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.
  • Page 35 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.
