This document describes how to install an optical drive on an HP Workstation.
A discharge of static electricity from a finger or other conductor may damage system boards or other
static-sensitive devices. This type of damage may reduce the life expectancy of the device.
Preventing Electrostatic Damage
To prevent electrostatic damage, observe the following precautions:
■ Avoid hand contact by transporting and storing parts in static-safe containers.
■ Keep electrostatic-sensitive parts in their containers until they arrive at static-free workstations.
■ Place parts on a grounded surface before removing them from their container.
■ Avoid touching pins, leads, or circuitry.
■ Always be properly grounded when touching an electrostatic-sensitive component or assembly.
There are several methods for grounding. Use one or more of the following measures when handling or
installing electrostatic- sensitive parts:
■ Use a wrist strap connected by a ground cord to a grounded workstation chassis. Wrist straps are
flexible straps with a minimum of 1 meg. ohm +/- 10 percent resistance in the ground cords. To
provide a proper ground, wear the strap snug against the skin.
■ Use heelstraps, toestraps, or bootstraps at standing workstations. Wear the straps on both feet when
standing on conductive floors or dissipating floor mats.
■ Use conductive field service tools.
■ Use a portable field service kit with a folding static-dissipating work mat.
If you do not have any of the suggested equipment for proper grounding, have an authorized dealer,
reseller, or service provider install the part.
NOTE: For additional information on static electricity or for assistance with the installation of this
