    Chapter 8. Removal and Replacement Procedures Chapter 8.1 Introduction Before starting the removal procedures, review Chapter 7, "Illustrated Parts Catalog," to become familiar with the various part numbers and locations. After completing all removal and replacement procedures, run the DIAGNOSTICS Program on the COMPAQ PORTABLE 386 Personal Computer to verify the proper operation of the replaced component.

  • Page 70

    Complete the preparation procedure (see Section 8.2). Detach the keyboard from the system unit. Grasp the keyboard cord near where it connects to the computer. pull it away from the keyboard connector on the computer (Figure 8-2). Slide the keyboard connector cover off of the keyboard cord and set it aside (Figure 8-3).

  • Page 71

    To replace the keyboard assembly, reverse steps 1 through 4. Chapter 8.4 Rear Panel To remove the rear panel: Complete the preparation procedure (see Section 8.2). Place the computer keyboard side down on a level surface with the rear panel facing upward. Remove the six screws and washers that secure the rear panel to the computer (Figure 8-4).

Chapter 8.6 Microprocessor Cover To remove the microprocessor cover: Complete the preparation procedure (see Section 8.2). Remove the rear panel (see Section 8.4). Locate the microprocessor cover shown in Figure 8-7.

  • Page 74

    Grasp the microprocessor cover at its edges; gently lift it up and away from the system board and set it aside (Figure 8-8). To replace the microprocessor cover, reverse steps 1 through 4. NOTE: Position the cover so that the edges slanted in go inside the fence and those slanted out go outside the fence.

    Chapter 8.8 32 Bit Memory/Modem Interface Board The 32 bit memory/modem interface board connects the memory expansion boards, either internal modem, and the second serial interface board to the system board. If one or a combination of these options is installed, the 32 bit memory/modem interface board will also be in place.

  • Page 77

    Remove the screws securing the 32 bit memory/modem interface board and set them aside. Grasp the 32 bit memory/modem interface board at its edges and, without rocking it, lift it straight up and away from the computer (Figure 8-12). When the 32 bit memory/modem interface board is removed, the options compartment with its two expansion slots is revealed (Figure 8-13).

  • Page 78

    The top slot holds the second serial interface board or one of the internal modems. Both the COMPAQ 1200 Baud Internal Modem and the COMPAQ 2400 Baud Internal Modem, are approved for use with the COMPAQ PORTABLE 386 Personal Computer. The second slot allows memory expansion using any of three different memory expansion board combinations (see Section 8.8).

    To replace the internal modem option, reverse steps 1 through 8. Chapter 8.10 Second Serial Interface Board (International Only) To remove the second serial interface board: Complete the preparation procedure (see Section 8.2). Remove the rear panel (see Section 8.4). Remove the 32 bit memory/modem interface board (see Section 8.8).

  • Page 82

    Locate the second serial interface board shown in Figure 8-20. Slide the second serial interface board out of the options compartment and set it aside (Figure 8-21).

  • Page 83

    To replace the second serial interface board, reverse steps 1 through 6. Chapter 8.11 Memory Expansion Boards Three memory expansion boards are available for the COMPAQ PORTABLE 386 Personal Computer: 1 to 2 Megabyte Memory Expansion Board, which comes standard with four sockets and one megabyte of random access memory (RAM).

  • Page 84

    To remove a memory expansion board: Complete the preparation procedure (see Section 8.2). Remove the rear panel (see Section 8.4). Remove the 32 bit memory/modem interface board (see Section 8.8). Press the top tab and disconnect the LED/speaker and keyboard cables from the system board (Figure 8-22).
