Installing Additional Memory
The computer comes with double data rate synchronous dynamic
random access memory (DDR-SDRAM) dual inline memory
modules (DIMMs).
DIMMs
The memory sockets on the system board can be populated with up to
four industry-standard DIMMs. These memory sockets are populated
with at least one preinstalled DIMM. To achieve the maximum
memory support, you can populate the system board with up to 4GB
of memory configured in a high-performing dual channel mode.
DDR-SDRAM DIMMs
For proper system operation, if the computer supports DDR-SDRAM
DIMMs, the DIMMs must be:
■
industry-standard 184-pin
■
unbuffered PC2100 266 MHz-, PC2700 333 MHz-, or PC3200
400 MHz-compliant
■
2.5 volt DDR-SDRAM DIMMs.
The DDR-SDRAM DIMMs must also:
■
support CAS latency 2 or 2.5 (CL = 2 or CL = 2.5)
■
contain the mandatory JEDEC SPD information
In addition, the computer supports:
■
128Mbit, 256Mbit, and 512Mbit non-ECC memory technologies
■
single-sided and double-sided DIMMS
■
DIMMs constructed with x8 and x16 DDR devices; DIMMs
constructed with x4 SDRAM are not supported
The following processor bus frequencies are required for the system
to run at the supported memory frequencies.
Hardware Reference Guide

266 MHz
400 MHz, 533 MHz, or 800 MHz
333 MHz
533 MHz or 800 MHz
400 MHz
800 MHz
If a memory frequency is paired with an unsupported processor bus
frequency, the system will run at the highest supported memory
speed. For example, if a 333 MHz DIMM is paired with a 400 MHz
processor bus, the system will run at 266 MHz, the highest supported
memory speed.
✎ The system will not start if you install unsupported DIMMs.
DIMM Sockets
The system will automatically operate in single channel mode or a
higher-performing dual channel mode, depending on how the DIMMs
are installed.
2–8
■
In single channel mode, the maximum operational speed is
determined by the slowest DIMM in the system. For example, if
the system is populated with a DIMM that is 266 MHz and a
second DIMM that is 333 MHz, the system will run at the slower
of the two speeds.
■
In dual channel mode, all DIMMs must be identically matched.
DIMMs in the XMM1 and XMM3 black sockets must be
identical; DIMMs in the XMM2 and XMM4 blue sockets must
also be identical. Therefore, if you have one preinstalled DIMM
in socket XMM1 and are adding a second DIMM, it is
recommended that you install an identical DIMM into the XMM3
socket. If you are populating all four DIMM sockets, use identical
DIMMs in each socket. Otherwise, the system will not operate in
dual channel mode.

There are four DIMM sockets on the system board, with two sockets
per channel. The sockets are labeled XMM1, XMM2, XMM3, and
XMM4. Sockets XMM1 and XMM2 operate in memory channel A.
Sockets XMM3 and XMM4 operate in memory channel B.

Electrostatic Discharge
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 products 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 containers.
■
Avoid touching pins, leads, or circuitry.
■
Always be properly grounded when touching a static-sensitive
component or assembly.
Grounding Methods
There are several methods for grounding. Use one or more of the
following methods when handling or installing electrostatic-sensitive
parts:
■
Hardware Reference Guide
Use a wrist strap connected by a ground cord to a grounded
workstation or computer chassis. Wrist straps are flexible straps
with a minimum of 1 megohm +/- 10 percent resistance in the
ground cords. To provide proper ground, wear the strap snug
against the skin.

Electrostatic Discharge
■
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, contact an HP authorized dealer, reseller, or service
provider.

Shipping Preparation
Routine Computer Care
Follow these suggestions to take care of the computer and monitor:
Hardware Reference Guide
■
Operate the computer on a sturdy, level surface. Leave a 3-inch
(7.6-cm) clearance at the back of the system unit and above the
monitor to permit the required airflow.
■
Never operate the computer with the cover or side panel removed.
■
Never restrict the airflow into the computer by blocking the front
vents or air intake. Do not place the keyboard, with the keyboard
feet down, directly against the front of the desktop unit as this
also restricts airflow.
■
Keep the computer away from excessive moisture, direct sunlight,
and extremes of heat and cold. For information about the
recommended temperature and humidity ranges for the computer,
refer to Appendix A, “Specifications” in this guide.
■
Keep liquids away from the computer and keyboard.
■
Never cover the ventilation slots on the monitor with any type of
material.
■
Turn off the computer before you do either of the following:
❏
Wipe the exterior of the computer with a soft, damp cloth as
needed. Using cleaning products may discolor or damage the
finish.
❏
Occasionally clean the air vents on the front and back of the
computer. Lint and other foreign matter can block the vents
and limit the airflow.

Optical Drive Precautions
Be sure to observe the following guidelines while operating or
cleaning the optical drive.
Operation
■
Do not move the drive during operation. This may cause it to
malfunction during reading.
■
Avoid exposing the drive to sudden changes in temperature, as
condensation may form inside the unit. If the temperature
suddenly changes while the drive is on, wait at least one hour
before you turn off the power. If you operate the unit
immediately, it may malfunction while reading.
■
Avoid placing the drive in a location that is subject to high
humidity, extreme temperatures, mechanical vibration, or direct
sunlight.
■
Clean the panel and controls with a soft, dry cloth or a soft cloth
lightly moistened with a mild detergent solution. Never spray
cleaning fluids directly on the unit.
■
Avoid using any type of solvent, such as alcohol or benzene,
which may damage the finish.
Cleaning
Safety
If any object or liquid falls into the drive, immediately unplug the
computer and have it checked by an authorized HP service provider.
