Removing an Expansion Card

Follow this general procedure to remove an expansion
card:
1.
If you are relocating or permanently removing an
ISA expansion card, enter the change into the
EISA Configuration Utility.
See Chapter 5, "Using the EISA Configuration Util-
ity," for instructions.
2.
Remove the computer cover according to the
instructions in "Removing the Computer Cover"
in Chapter 6.
CAUTION: See "Protecting Against Electro-
static Discharge" in the safety instructions at
the front of this guide.
3.
With the cover removed, lay the computer (left
side up) on a flat work surface so that you have
access to the expansion card slots.
4.
If necessary, disconnect any cables connected to
the expansion card.
5.
Unscrew the card-mounting bracket.
6.
Grasp the expansion card by its outside corners,
and ease it out of its connector.
7.
If you are removing the expansion card perma-
nently, install a metal filler bracket over the
empty card-slot opening.
NOTE: Installing filler brackets over empty card-
slot openings is necessary to maintain Federal
Communications Commission (FCC) certification of
the system. The brackets also keep dust and dirt out
of the computer and aid in proper cooling and air-
flow inside the computer.
8.
Replace the computer cover according to the
instructions in "Replacing the Computer Cover"
in Chapter 6, reconnect your computer and
peripherals to their power sources, and turn them
on.
