Routine care, SATA drive guidelines, and disassembly preparation This chapter provides general service information for the computer. Adherence to the procedures and precautions described in this chapter is essential for proper service. CAUTION: When the computer is plugged into an AC power source, voltage is always applied to the system board.
Preventing electrostatic damage to equipment Many electronic components are sensitive to ESD. Circuitry design and structure determine the degree of sensitivity. The following packaging and grounding precautions are necessary to prevent damage to electric components and accessories. ● To avoid hand contact, transport products in static-safe containers such as tubes, bags, or boxes. Protect all electrostatic parts and assemblies with conductive or approved containers or packaging.
Recommended materials and equipment Materials and equipment that are recommended for use in preventing static electricity include the following: ● Antistatic tape ● Antistatic smocks, aprons, or sleeve protectors ● Conductive bins and other assembly or soldering aids ● Conductive foam ●...
Never cover the ventilation slots on the monitor with any type of material. ● ● Install or enable power management functions of the operating system or other software, including sleep states. Routine care General cleaning safety precautions Never use solvents or flammable solutions to clean the computer. Never immerse any parts in water or cleaning solutions;...
Cleaning the keyboard Follow all safety precautions in General cleaning safety precautions on page 12 before cleaning the keyboard. To clean the tops of the keys or the keyboard body, follow the procedures described in Cleaning the computer case on page When cleaning debris from under the keys, review all rules in General cleaning safety precautions on page 12 before following these procedures:...
The screws used in the computer are not interchangeable. They may have standard or metric threads and may be of different lengths. If an incorrect screw is used during the reassembly process, it can damage the unit. HP strongly recommends that all screws removed during disassembly be kept with the part that was removed, then returned to their proper locations.
Batteries, battery packs, and accumulators should not be disposed of together with the general household waste. In order to forward them to recycling or proper disposal, please use the public collection system or return them to HP, their authorized partners, or their agents. SATA hard drives...
SATA data cable Always use an HP approved SATA 6.0 Gb/s cable. It is fully backward compatible with the SATA 1.5 Gb/s drives. Current HP desktop products ship with SATA 6.0 Gb/s hard drives. SATA data cables are susceptible to damage if overflexed. Never crease a SATA data cable and never bend it tighter than a 30 mm (1.18 in) radius.
Removal and replacement procedures Adherence to the procedures and precautions described in this chapter is essential for proper service. After completing all necessary removal and replacement procedures, run the Diagnostics utility to verify that all components operate properly. NOTE: Not all features listed in this guide are available on all computers.
