Removal and replacement procedures
Preliminary replacement requirements
Tools required
You will need the following tools to complete the removal and replacement procedures:
●
Magnetic screwdriver
●
Phillips P0 and P1 screwdrivers
●
Flat-bladed screwdriver
Service considerations
The following sections include some of the considerations that you must keep in mind during
disassembly and assembly procedures.
NOTE: As you remove each subassembly from the computer, place the subassembly (and all
accompanying screws) away from the work area to prevent damage.
Plastic parts
CAUTION: Using excessive force during disassembly and reassembly can damage plastic parts. Use
care when handling the plastic parts. Apply pressure only at the points designated in the maintenance
instructions.
Preliminary replacement requirements
37
Cables and connectors
CAUTION: When servicing the computer, be sure that cables are placed in their proper locations
during the reassembly process. Improper cable placement can damage the computer.
Cables must be handled with extreme care to avoid damage. Apply only the tension required to unseat
or seat the cables during removal and insertion. Handle cables by the connector whenever possible. In
all cases, avoid bending, twisting, or tearing cables. Be sure that cables are routed in such a way that
they cannot be caught or snagged by parts being removed or replaced. Handle flex cables with extreme
care; these cables tear easily.
Drive handling
CAUTION: Drives are fragile components that must be handled with care. To prevent damage to the
computer, damage to a drive, or loss of information, observe these precautions:
Before removing or inserting a hard drive, shut down the computer. If you are unsure whether the
computer is off or in Hibernation, turn the computer on, and then shut it down through the operating
system.
Before handling a drive, be sure that you are discharged of static electricity. While handling a drive,
avoid touching the connector.
Before removing a diskette drive or optical drive, be sure that a diskette or disc is not in the drive and
be sure that the optical drive tray is closed.
Handle drives on surfaces covered with at least one inch of shock-proof foam.
Avoid dropping drives from any height onto any surface.
After removing a hard drive, an optical drive, or a diskette drive, place it in a static-proof bag.
Avoid exposing a hard drive to products that have magnetic fields, such as monitors or speakers.
Avoid exposing a drive to temperature extremes or liquids.
If a drive must be mailed, place the drive in a bubble pack mailer or other suitable form of protective
packaging and label the package “FRAGILE.”

Chapter 4 Removal and replacement procedures
Grounding guidelines
Electrostatic discharge damage
Electronic components are sensitive to electrostatic discharge (ESD). Circuitry design and structure
determine the degree of sensitivity. Networks built into many integrated circuits provide some protection,
but in many cases, ESD contains enough power to alter device parameters or melt silicon junctions.
A discharge of static electricity from a finger or other conductor can destroy static-sensitive devices or
microcircuitry. Even if the spark is neither felt nor heard, damage may have occurred.
An electronic device exposed to ESD may not be affected at all and can work perfectly throughout a
normal cycle. Or the device may function normally for a while, then degrade in the internal layers,
reducing its life expectancy.
CAUTION: To prevent damage to the computer when you are removing or installing internal
components, observe these precautions:
Keep components in their electrostatic-safe containers until you are ready to install them.
Use nonmagnetic tools.
Before touching an electronic component, discharge static electricity by using the guidelines described
in this section.
Avoid touching pins, leads, and circuitry. Handle electronic components as little as possible.
If you remove a component, place it in an electrostatic-safe container.
The following table shows how humidity affects the electrostatic voltage levels generated by different
activities.
CAUTION:
A product can be degraded by as little as 700 V.

Packaging and transporting guidelines
Follow these grounding guidelines when packaging and transporting equipment:
●
To avoid hand contact, transport products in static-safe tubes, bags, or boxes.
●
Protect ESD-sensitive parts and assemblies with conductive or approved containers or packaging.
●
Keep ESD-sensitive parts in their containers until the parts arrive at static-free workstations.
●
Place items on a grounded surface before removing items from their containers.
●
Always be properly grounded when touching a component or assembly.
●
Store reusable ESD-sensitive parts from assemblies in protective packaging or nonconductive
foam.
●
Use transporters and conveyors made of antistatic belts and roller bushings. Be sure that
mechanized equipment used for moving materials is wired to ground and that proper materials are
selected to avoid static charging. When grounding is not possible, use an ionizer to dissipate
electric charges.
Workstation guidelines
Follow these grounding workstation guidelines:
40
●
Cover the workstation with approved static-shielding material.
●
Use a wrist strap connected to a properly grounded work surface and use properly grounded tools
and equipment.
●
Use conductive field service tools, such as cutters, screwdrivers, and vacuums.
●
When fixtures must directly contact dissipative surfaces, use fixtures made only of static-safe
materials.
●
Keep the work area free of nonconductive materials, such as ordinary plastic assembly aids and
Styrofoam.
●
Handle ESD-sensitive components, parts, and assemblies by the case or PCM laminate. Handle
these items only at static-free workstations.
●
Avoid contact with pins, leads, or circuitry.
●
Turn off power and input signals before inserting or removing connectors or test equipment.
Chapter 4 Removal and replacement procedures
Equipment guidelines
Grounding equipment must include either a wrist strap or a foot strap at a grounded workstation.
●
When seated, wear a wrist strap connected to a grounded system. Wrist straps are flexible straps
with a minimum of one megohm ±10% resistance in the ground cords. To provide proper ground,
wear a strap snugly against the skin at all times. On grounded mats with banana-plug connectors,
use alligator clips to connect a wrist strap.
●
When standing, use foot straps and a grounded floor mat. Foot straps (heel, toe, or boot straps)
can be used at standing workstations and are compatible with most types of shoes or boots. On
conductive floors or dissipative floor mats, use foot straps on both feet with a minimum of one
megohm resistance between the operator and ground. To be effective, the conductive strips must

Backup and Recovery
Recovering system information
Recovery after a system failure is as complete as your most current backup. HP recommends that you
create recovery discs immediately after software setup. As you add new software and data files, you
should continue to back up your system on a regular basis to maintain a reasonably current backup.
Tools provided by the operating system and Recovery Manager software are designed to help you with
the following tasks for safeguarding your information and restoring it in case of a system failure:
●
Making a set of recovery discs (Recovery Manager software feature). Recovery discs are used to
start up (boot) your computer and restore the operating system and software programs to factory
settings in case of system failure or instability.
●
Backing up your information regularly to protect your important system files.
●
Creating system restore points (operating system feature). System restore points allow you to
reverse undesirable changes to your computer by restoring the computer to an earlier state.
●
Recovering a program or driver (Recovery Manager software feature). This feature helps you
reinstall a program or driver without performing a full system recovery.
●
Performing a full system recovery (Recovery Manager software feature). With Recovery Manager,
you can recover your full factory image if you experience system failure or instability. Recovery
Manager works from a dedicated recovery partition (select models only) on the hard drive or from
recovery discs you create.
NOTE: If your computer includes a solid-state drive (SSD), you may not have a recovery partition.
Recovery discs have been included for computers that do not have a partition. Use these discs to recover
your operating system and software. To check for the presence of a recovery partition, select Start >
Computer. If the partition is present, an HP Recovery drive is listed in the Hard Disk Drives section of
the window.
134 Chapter 8 Backup and Recovery
Creating recovery discs
HP recommends that you create recovery discs to be sure that you can restore your system to its original
factory state if you experience serious system failure or instability. Create these discs after setting up
the computer for the first time.
Handle these discs carefully and keep them in a safe place. The software allows the creation of only
one set of recovery discs.
NOTE: If your computer does not include an internal optical drive, you can use an optional external
optical drive (purchased separately) to create recovery discs, or you can purchase recovery discs for
your computer from the HP Web site.
Note the following guidelines before creating recovery discs:
●
You will need high-quality DVD-R, double-layer DVD-R, DVD+R, double-layer DVD+R, BD-R
(writable Blu-ray), or CD-R discs. All these discs are purchased separately. DVDs and BDs have
a much higher capacity than CDs. If you use CDs, up to 20 discs may be required, whereas only
a few DVDs or BDs are required.
NOTE: Read-write discs, such as CD-RW, DVD±RW, double-layer DVD±RW, and BD-RE
(rewritable Blu-ray) discs, are not compatible with the Recovery Manager software.
●
The computer must be connected to AC power during this process.
●
Only one set of recovery discs can be created per computer.
●
Number each disc before inserting it into the optical drive.
●
If necessary, you can exit the program before you have finished creating the recovery discs. The
next time you open Recovery Manager, you will be prompted to continue the disc creation process.
To create a set of recovery discs:
1.
Select Start > All Programs > Recovery Manager > Recovery Manager.
Recovery Manager opens.
2.
Click Advanced Options.
NOTE: If you are operating the computer on battery power, you will be prompted to connect to
AC power before you can go to the next step.
3.
Click Recovery disc creation, and then click Next.
4.
Follow the on-screen instructions.
Recovering system information 135
Backing up your information
When to back up
●
On a regularly scheduled basis
NOTE: Set reminders to back up your information periodically.
●
Before the computer is repaired or restored
●
Before you add or modify hardware or software
Backup suggestions
●
Create a set of recovery discs using Recovery Manager.
●
Create system restore points using the Windows® System Restore feature, and periodically copy
them to disc.
●
Store personal files in the Documents folder and back up this folder periodically.
●
Back up templates stored in their associated programs.
●
Save customized settings in a window, toolbar, or menu bar by taking a screen shot of your settings.
The screen shot can be a time-saver if you have to reset your preferences.
To copy the screen and paste it into a word-processing document, follow these steps:
a.
Display the screen.
b.
Copy the screen:
To copy only the active window, press alt+fn+prt sc.
To copy the entire screen, press fn+prt sc.
c.
Open a word-processing document, and then select Edit > Paste.
Using system restore points
When you back up your system, you are creating a system restore point. A system restore point allows
you to save and name a snapshot of your hard drive at a specific point in time. You can then recover
back to that point if you want to reverse subsequent changes made to your system.
NOTE: Recovering to an earlier restore point does not affect data files saved or e-mails created since
the last restore point.
You also can create additional restore points to provide increased protection for your system files and
settings.
When to create restore points
●
Before you add or extensively modify software or hardware
●
Periodically, whenever the system is performing optimally
NOTE:
If you revert to a restore point and then change your mind, you can reverse the restoration.
136 Chapter 8 Backup and Recovery
Create a system restore point
1.
Select Start > Control Panel > System and Maintenance > System.
2.
In the left pane, click System Protection.
3.
Click the System Protection tab.
4.
Under Automatic restore points, select the disk for which you want to create a restore point.
5.
Click Create.
The System Protection window opens.
6.
Follow the on-screen instructions.
Restore to a previous date and time
To revert to a restore point (created at a previous date and time), when the computer was functioning
optimally, follow these steps:
1.
Select Start > Control Panel > System and Maintenance > System.
2.
In the left pane, click System protection.
3.
Click the System Protection tab.
4.
Click the System Restore button, and then click Next.
The System Restore window opens.
5.
Follow the on-screen instructions.
Backing up your information 137
Performing a recovery
NOTE: You can recover only files that you have previously backed up. HP recommends that you use
Recovery Manager to create an entire drive backup as soon as you set up your computer.
Recovery Manager software allows you to repair or restore the system if you experience system failure
or instability. Recovery Manager works from recovery discs that you create or from a dedicated recovery
partition (select models only) on the hard drive. However, if your computer includes a solid-state drive
(SSD), you may not have a recovery partition. If that is the case, recovery discs have been included
with your computer. Use these discs to recover your operating system and software.
NOTE: Windows has its own built-in repair features, such as System Restore and driver roll-back
capabilities. If you have not already tried these features, try them before using Recovery Manager.
NOTE: Recovery Manager recovers only software that was preinstalled at the factory. Software not
provided with this computer must be downloaded from the manufacturer's Web site or reinstalled from
the disc provided by the manufacturer.
Recovering from the recovery discs
To restore the system from the recovery discs:
1.
Back up all personal files.
2.
Insert the first recovery disc into the optical drive and restart the computer.
3.
Follow the on-screen instructions.
Recovering from the dedicated recovery partition (select models only)
NOTE: If your computer includes an SSD, you may not have a recovery partition. You will not be able
to recover using this procedure. Recovery discs have been included for computers that do not have a
partition. Use these discs to recover your operating system and software.
On some models, you can perform a recovery from the partition on the hard drive from either the Start
button or f11. This restores the computer to it's factory condition.
To restore the system from the partition, follow these steps:
1.
Access Recovery Manager in either of the following ways:
●
Select Start > All Programs > Recovery Manager > Recovery Manager.
– or –
●
Restart the computer and press f11 while the “Press <F11> for recovery” message is displayed
on the screen. Then select Recovery Manager.
Recovery Manager opens.
2.
Click Advanced Options.
3.
Click System recovery, and then click Next.
4.
Follow the on-screen instructions.
