that are optimized for Beats Audio™ headphones and external audio systems
(purchased separately). Select HP TouchSmart PC models also include four Beatson the keyboard.
optimized internal speakers and a Beats toggle button
Your computer comes ready for you to experience music with Beats enabled. To
disable Beats, press the Beats toggle button; the Beats-off icon appears on the
screen. To turn Beats on, press the Beats toggle button again. If your keyboard
does not contain the Beats toggle button, press Fn+B to enable and disable Beats.

All you need to do is plug the Beats Audio headphones into the side headphone
connector to experience crisp and clear sound separation. To experience the full
capability of BEATS audio using the internal speakers, HP recommends connecting
a matching HP subwoofer to the Sub connector on the back panel. If you are using
an external audio system, plug it into the Audio Out connector on the back panel.
Using an HDMI monitor
If your computer has a graphics card with an HDMI (High Definition Multimedia
Interface) connector, Hewlett-Packard recommends using a DVI or VGA connector
for a monitor, and using HDMI to connect a TV.
If you use HDMI to connect your monitor, you may need to adjust some settings to
hear sound (see the following steps). Because of this, HP recommends that you
connect analog speakers to the computer if you want to hear sound during the
initial setup of the computer.
For optimum viewing, you may need to adjust the resolution setting for the monitor
(see “Adjusting resolution”).
Save this document for future use.
NOTE: If you ever need to recover the computer operating system by using the
Recovery Manager, you must repeat these procedures to activate sound and adjust
resolution for the HDMI connector.
IMPORTANT: Your HDMI monitor must be connected to the graphics card
before you activate sound and adjust resolution.

●
Check your system once a month for visible signs of dust and debris, and clean it about once every three
months.
●
Visit http://www.hp.com/go/contactHP for additional cleaning instructions.

Customer support for repairs
If your computer needs to be repaired or to have parts replaced, you have two
choices:
●
You can easily replace many of your computer parts that are considered
consumer replaceable. This is the fastest method of repair, as many times we
can send the part directly to your home or business in a few days.
●
If a repair is necessary, the HP Customer Care Center will make
arrangements to fix your computer.
These services are covered during the warranty period.
There are a few limitations and exclusions to the warranty (as well as some
important details), which are described in the Hardware Limited Warranty section
of the Limited Warranty and Support Guide.
Before upgrading your hardware
Any hardware upgrades that you intend to do should only be done after you have
completely set up your new computer. Refer to the setup poster included with your
system for help with setting up. If you have any problems setting up your system
and turning it on, immediately contact the HP Customer Care Center listed earlier
in this guide, and a HP Customer Representative will assist you. This must be done
first before attempting to upgrade your system.
By breaking the security seal on the back of the computer, you are confirming that
the computer was working properly before you attempted to upgrade your system.
Once the security seal has been broken, your computer is then, to the extent
allowed by local law, covered under the terms and conditions listed in the
Hardware Limited Warranty section of the Limited Warranty and Support Guide.

The power to make a change
Thank you for your purchase. HP is dedicated to producing the highest quality, best performing, and easiest to
use computers in the world. HP also designed this product with the environment in mind.
But to reduce its impact even further, we need your help.
Let’s work together to make a change.
How you can help
What we do
Recycle your old computer.
We design with the environment in mind.
Disposing of electronic waste responsibly has been
an HP priority for more than 20 years. If this
computer is a replacement for an older computer
you no longer need, go to
www.hp.com/go/recycle to find out if HP
can help you dispose of your old computer with
minimum impact on the planet.
While we want you to enjoy this computer for many
years to come, we recognize that you will eventually
dispose of it. We have designed it so it can be easily
dismantled and recycled as much as possible. The
packaging that came with your computer is also
designed for maximum recyclability.
Don't use a screen saver.
We design to be more energy efficient.
Screen savers can prevent your HP computer from
going to sleep and thereby waste power. Screen
savers can also reduce the life of your monitor by
increasing the number of hours the LCD backlight is
on.
This computer has HP Power Management Technology,
which can reduce computer energy use up to 45%
compared to computers without power management.
HP computers keep energy needs to a minimum, saving
you money and reducing your carbon footprint.
Don't disable the power settings.
We design our products to use better and fewer
materials.
The power management tools on this computer are
set to minimize energy use without impacting
performance. Please do not disable them.
