Removal and replacement procedures
preliminary requirements
Tools required
You will need the following tools to complete the removal and replacement procedures:
●
Flat-bladed screwdriver
●
Phillips P0 and P1 screwdrivers
●
Torx T8 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.
32
Chapter 4 Removal and replacement procedures preliminary requirements
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.”
Service considerations

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, and 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.

Chapter 4 Removal and replacement procedures preliminary requirements
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:
●
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.
Service considerations
35
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 be worn in contact with
the skin.
The following grounding equipment is recommended to prevent electrostatic damage:
●
Antistatic tapes
●
Antistatic smocks, aprons, and sleeve protectors
●
Conductive bins and other assembly or soldering aids
●
Nonconductive foam
●
Conductive tabletop workstations with ground cords of one megohm resistance
●
Static-dissipative tables or floor mats with hard ties to the ground
●
Field service kits
●
Static awareness labels
●
Material-handling packages
●
Nonconductive plastic bags, tubes, or boxes
●
Metal tote boxes
●

Factory Image Restore DVD, using an installed or an external DVD±RW optical drive. You can also restore the
computer to its factory condition from the HP dedicated recovery partition on the hard drive.
114 Chapter 12 Backup and Recovery in SUSE Linux
CAUTION: Using Recovery completely erases hard drive contents and reformats the hard drive. All files you
have created and any software installed on the computer are permanently removed. The recovery tool
reinstalls the original operating system and HP programs and drivers that were installed at the factory.
Software, drivers, and updates not installed by HP must be manually reinstalled. Personal files must be
restored from a backup.
To restore the computer using the HP Factory Image Restore DVD, you must first create the recovery disc. To
create the recovery disc:
NOTE: HP recommends that you create the HP Factory Image Restore DVD in the event of a system failure.
1.
Select Computer > More Applications.

14 Statement of Volatility
The purpose of this document is to provide general information regarding non-volatile memory in industrystandards based HP Business Notebook PC systems and provide general instructions for restoring
nonvolatile memory that can contain personal data after the system has been powered off and the hard drive
has been removed.
HP Business Notebook PC products that use Intel®-based or AMD®-based system boards contain volatile DDR
memory. The amount of nonvolatile memory present in the system depends upon the system configuration.
Intel-based and AMD-based system boards contain nonvolatile memory subcomponents as originally
shipped from HP assuming that no subsequent modifications have been made to the system and assuming
that no applications, features, or functionality have been added to or installed on the system.
Following system shutdown and removal of all power sources from an HP Business Notebook PC system,
personal data can remain on volatile system memory (DIMMs) for a finite period of time and will also remain
in nonvolatile memory. The steps below will remove personal data from the notebook PC, including the
nonvolatile memory found in Intel-based and AMD-based system boards. Some of these steps are disclosed
in the Maintenance & Service Guides available for HP PC products available on the product support pages at
www.hp.com.

Questions and answers
1.
2.
How can the BIOS settings be restored (returned to factory settings)?
a.
Turn on or restart the computer and press F10 when prompted near the bottom of the display.
b.
Select File, then select Restore defaults.
c.
Follow the on-screen instructions.
d.
Select File, save changes and exit, then press Enter.
What kind of configuration data is stored on the DIMM Serial Presence Detect (SPD) memory
module? How would this data be written?
The DIMM SPD memory contains information about the memory module such as size, serial number,
data width, speed/timing, voltage and thermal information. This information is written by the module
manufacturer and stored on an EEPROM. This EEPROM cannot be written to when the memory module is
installed in a PC. Third party tools do exist that can write to the EEPROM when the memory module is
not installed in a PC. There are various third party tools available to read SPD memory.
3.
Does the “Firmware Hub for System BIOS” contain the BIOS program? Is this chip writable, and if so
how?
The Firmware Hub does contain the BIOS program and is writable. A utility is required to perform the
write function.
4.
In some PC systems, the Firmware Hub for System BIOS is a flash memory chip so that updates can
be written by the customer. Is this true for these BIOS chips?
Yes, they are flash memory chips.
5.
What is meant by “Restore the nonvolatile memory found in Intel-based system boards”?
This relates to clearing the Real Time Clock (RTC) CMOS memory that contains PC configuration data.
6.
Does resetting the CMOS configuration memory return the PC back to factory defaults?
The process of resetting the CMOS will return certain system settings to factory default but will not
reset many of the system data and configuration defaults to their factory settings. To return these
system data and configuration defaults to factory settings, refer to question and answer 1 and follow
the instructions for returning the BIOS settings to factory defaults.
