    Video Controller The video subsystem is built into the system board and consists of a high-speed, high-resolution VGA-compatible video subsystem. The video controller is con- nected to the PCI local bus. The standard video subsystem contains 1 MB of video memory (the video memory size is not upgradable). Maximum noninterlaced resolutions are 640 x 480 pixels with 16.7 million col- ors or 800 x 600 pixels with 65,536 colors.

    • If you install an optional SCSI controller card to control the CD-ROM drive and any other SCSI device in the externally-accessible drive bays, you must enable termination for the SCSI controller card and the SCSI device at the end of the SCSI interface cable (preferably the CD-ROM drive). See the documentation that came with your SCSI controller card for instructions.

    3. Verify that the microprocessor, DIMMs, and expansion cards, are fully seated in their sockets or connectors. WARNING: The microprocessor can get extremely hot. Be sure the chip has had sufficient time to cool before you touch it. While reseating the microprocessor, wear a wrist grounding strap or main- tain contact with a metal surface on the chassis.
