Activating and Customizing the
Software
NOTE: This chapter provides information for both Windows 7 and Windows 8.
Activating and customizing the software in
Windows 7
If your computer was not shipped with a Windows® operating system, some portions of this
documentation do not apply. Additional information is available in online help after you activate the
operating system.
CAUTION: Do not add optional hardware or third-party devices to the computer until the operating
system is successfully activated. Doing so may cause errors and prevent the operating system from
installing properly.
NOTE: Be sure there is a 10.2 cm (4 inch) clearance at the back of the unit and above the monitor to
permit the required airflow.
Activating the Windows operating system
The first time you turn on the computer, the operating system is set up and activated automatically. This
process takes about 5 to 10 minutes. Carefully read and follow the instructions on the screen to
complete the activation.
We recommend that you register your computer with HP during operating system setup so you can
receive important software updates, facilitate support questions, and sign up for special offers.
CAUTION: After the activation process has begun, DO NOT TURN OFF THE COMPUTER UNTIL THE
PROCESS IS COMPLETE. Turning off the computer during the activation process may damage the
software that runs the computer or prevent its proper installation.
NOTE: If the computer shipped with more than one operating system language on the hard drive, the

Routine care, SATA drive
guidelines, and disassembly
preparation
This chapter provides general service information for the computer. Adherence to the procedures and
precautions described in this chapter is essential for proper service.
CAUTION: When the computer is plugged into an AC power source, voltage is always applied to
the system board. You must disconnect the power cord from the power source before opening the
computer to prevent system board or component damage.
Electrostatic discharge information
A sudden discharge of static electricity from your finger or other conductor can destroy static-sensitive
devices or microcircuitry. Often the spark is neither felt nor heard, but damage occurs. An electronic
device exposed to electrostatic discharge (ESD) may not appear to be affected at all and can work
perfectly throughout a normal cycle. The device may function normally for a while, but it has been
degraded in the internal layers, reducing its life expectancy.
Networks built into many integrated circuits provide some protection, but in many cases, the discharge
contains enough power to alter device parameters or melt silicon junctions.

Preventing electrostatic damage to equipment
Many electronic components are sensitive to ESD. Circuitry design and structure determine the degree
of sensitivity. The following packaging and grounding precautions are necessary to prevent damage to
electric components and accessories.
●
To avoid hand contact, transport products in static-safe containers such as tubes, bags, or boxes.
●
Protect all electrostatic parts and assemblies with conductive or approved containers or
packaging.
●
Keep electrostatic sensitive parts in their containers until they arrive at static-free stations.
●
Place items on a grounded surface before removing them from their container.
●
Always be properly grounded when touching a sensitive component or assembly.
●
Avoid contact with pins, leads, or circuitry.
●
Place reusable electrostatic-sensitive parts from assemblies in protective packaging or conductive
foam.

Operating guidelines
To prevent overheating and to help prolong the life of the computer:
●
Keep the computer away from excessive moisture, direct sunlight, and extremes of heat and cold.
●
Operate the computer on a sturdy, level surface. Leave a 10.2-cm (4-inch) clearance on all vented
sides of the computer and above the monitor to permit the required airflow.
●
Never restrict the airflow into the computer by blocking any vents or air intakes. Do not place the
keyboard, with the keyboard feet down, directly against the front of the desktop unit as this also
restricts airflow.
●
Occasionally clean the air vents on all vented sides of the computer. Lint, dust, and other foreign
matter can block the vents and limit the airflow. Be sure to unplug the computer before cleaning
the air vents.
●
Never operate the computer with the cover or side panel removed.
●
Do not stack computers on top of each other or place computers so near each other that they are
subject to each other’s re-circulated or preheated air.
●
If the computer is to be operated within a separate enclosure, intake and exhaust ventilation must
be provided on the enclosure, and the same operating guidelines listed above will still apply.
●
Keep liquids away from the computer and keyboard.
Operating guidelines
29
●
Never cover the ventilation slots on the monitor with any type of material.
●
Install or enable power management functions of the operating system or other software, including
sleep states.

SATA data cable
Always use an HP approved SATA 3.0 Gb/s cable as it is fully backwards compatible with the SATA
1.5 Gb/s drives.
Current HP desktop products ship with SATA 3.0 Gb/s hard drives.
SATA data cables are susceptible to damage if overflexed. Never crease a SATA data cable and never
bend it tighter than a 30 mm (1.18 in) radius.
The SATA data cable is a thin, 7-pin cable designed to transmit data for only a single drive.
SMART ATA drives
The Self Monitoring Analysis and Recording Technology (SMART) ATA drives for the HP Personal
Computers have built-in drive failure prediction that warns the user or network administrator of an
impending failure or crash of the hard drive. The SMART drive tracks fault prediction and failure
indication parameters such as reallocated sector count, spin retry count, and calibration retry count. If
the drive determines that a failure is imminent, it generates a fault alert.
Cable management
Always follow good cable management practices when working inside the computer.
34
●
Keep cables away from major heat sources like the heat sink.
●
Do not jam cables on top of expansion cards or memory modules. Printed circuit cards like these
are not designed to take excessive pressure on them.
●
Keep cables clear of sliding or moveable parts to prevent them from being cut or crimped when
the parts are moved.
●
When folding a flat ribbon cable, never fold to a sharp crease. Sharp creases may damage the
wires.
●
Some flat ribbon cables come prefolded. Never change the folds on these cables.
●
Do not bend any cable sharply. A sharp bend can break the internal wires.
●
Never bend a SATA data cable tighter than a 30 mm (1.18 in) radius.
●
Never crease a SATA data cable.
●
Do not rely on components like the drive cage, power supply, or computer cover to push cables
down into the chassis. Always position the cables to lay properly by themselves.

689372-001
Memory modules are located on the right side of the computer (viewed from behind).
The computer has two memory slots that can be populated with up to two industry-standard SODIMMs.
These memory sockets are populated with at least one preinstalled SODIMM. To achieve the maximum
memory support, you can populate the system board with up to 16 GB of memory.
For proper system operation, the SODIMMs must be:
●
industry-standard 204-pin
●
unbuffered non-ECC PC3-10600 DDR3-1600 MHz-compliant
●
1.5 volt DDR3-SDRAM SODIMMs
The DDR3-SDRAM SODIMMs must also:
●
support CAS latency 11 DDR3 1600 MHz (11-11-11 timing)
●
contain the mandatory Joint Electronic Device Engineering Council (JEDEC) specification
Memory
59
In addition, the computer supports:
●
1-Gbit, 2-Gbit, and 4-Gbit non-ECC memory technologies
●
single-sided and double-sided SODIMMS
●
SODIMMs constructed with x8 and x16 SDRAMs; SODIMMs constructed with x4 SDRAMs are not
supported
NOTE: The system will not operate properly if you install unsupported SODIMM memory.
The system will automatically operate in single channel mode, dual channel mode, or flex mode,
depending on how the SODIMMs are installed. Refer to the following table to identify the SODIMM
channel locations.
Location
System Board Label
Channel
Lower Socket
SODIMM1
Channel A
Upper Socket
SODIMM3
Channel B
●
The system will operate in single channel mode if the SODIMM sockets are populated in one
channel only.
●
The system will operate in flex mode if the memory capacity of the SODIMM in Channel A is not
equal to the memory capacity of the SODIMM in Channel B. In flex mode, the channel populated
with the least amount of memory describes the total amount of memory assigned to dual channel
and the remainder is assigned to single channel. If one channel will have more memory than the
other, the larger amount should be assigned to channel A.
●
The system will operate in a higher-performing dual channel mode if the memory capacity of the
SODIMM in Channel A is equal to the memory capacity of the SODIMM in Channel B.
●
In any mode, the maximum operational speed is determined by the slowest SODIMM in the
system.
There are two memory sockets on the system board located behind the memory access panel. To

Storage Options
eSATA Port
Allows you to set a SATA port as an eSATA port for use with an external drive. Default is enabled.
This setting affects only the port with the black connector, labeled as eSATA on the system board.
This port should have the eSATA back panel connector attached to use eSATA drives. For more
information, see the eSATA white paper at www.hp.com.
SATA Emulation
Allows you to choose how the SATA controller and devices are accessed by the operating system.
There are three supported options: IDE, RAID, and AHCI (default).
CAUTION: SATA emulation changes may prevent access to existing hard drive data and
degrade or corrupt established volumes.
IDE - This is the most backwards-compatible setting of the three options. Operating systems usually
do not require additional driver support in IDE mode.
RAID - Allows DOS and boot access to RAID volumes. Use this mode with the RAID device driver
loaded in the operating system to take advantage of RAID features.
AHCI (default option) - Allows operating systems with AHCI device drivers loaded to take
advantage of more advanced features of the SATA controller.
NOTE: The RAID/AHCI device driver must be installed prior to attempting to boot from a RAID/
AHCI volume. If you attempt to boot from a RAID/AHCI volume without the required device driver
installed, the system will crash (blue screen). RAID volumes may become corrupted if they are
booted to after disabling RAID.

drive, USB hard drive, USB optical drive, or internal optical drive) are checked for a bootable
operating system image. Each device on the list may be individually excluded from or included
for consideration as a bootable operating system source.
UEFI boot sources always have precedence over legacy boot sources.
●
Legacy Boot Sources: Specify the order in which legacy boot sources (such as a network
interface card, internal hard drive, USB optical drive, or internal optical drive) are checked for
a bootable operating system image. Each device on the list may be individually excluded from
or included for consideration as a bootable operating system source.
Specify the order of attached hard drives. The first hard drive in the order will have priority in
the boot sequence and will be recognized as drive C (if any devices are attached).
NOTE: To drag a device to a preferred place, press Enter. To remove the device from
consideration as a bootable device, press F5.

allows you to recover the "last known good" MBR, should changes to the MBR be detected when
the system is restarted.
When MBR Security is enabled, the BIOS prevents any changes being made to the MBR of the
current bootable disk while in MS-DOS or Windows Safe Mode.
NOTE: Most operating systems control access to the MBR of the current bootable disk; the BIOS
cannot prevent changes that may occur while the operating system is running.
Restores the backup Master Boot Record to the current bootable disk. Default is disabled.

HP PC Hardware Diagnostics
To help troubleshoot and diagnose failures, use the UEFI-based hardware diagnostic solution that HP
includes on all products. This tool can even be used if the computer will not boot to the operating
system.
Why run HP PC Hardware Diagnostics – UEFI
The HP PC Hardware Diagnostic tools simplify the process of diagnosing hardware issues and expedite
the support process when issues are found. The tools save time by pinpointing the component that
needs to be replaced.
●
Isolate true hardware failures: The diagnostics run outside of the operating system so they
effectively isolate hardware failures from issues that may be caused by the operating system or
other software components.
●
Failure ID: When a failure is detected that requires hardware replacement, a 24-digit Failure ID
is generated. This ID can then be provided to the call agent, who will either schedule support or
provide replacement parts.
How to access and run HP PC Hardware Diagnostics

System backup and recovery
Backing up, restoring, and recovering in Windows 8
Your computer includes tools provided by HP and Windows to help you safeguard your information
and retrieve it if you ever need to. These tools will help you return your computer to a proper working
state or even back to the original factory state, all with simple steps.
This section provides information about the following processes:
●
Creating recovery media and backups
●
Restoring and recovering your system
NOTE: This section describes an overview of backing up, restoring, and recovering options. For more
details about the tools provided, see Help and Support. From the Start screen, type h, and then select
Help and Support.
166
Chapter 9 System backup and recovery
Creating recovery media and backups
Recovery after a system failure is only as good as your most recent backup.
1.
After you successfully set up the computer, create recovery media. This step creates a backup of
the recovery partition on the computer. The backup can be used to reinstall the original operating
system in cases where the hard drive is corrupted or has been replaced.
You will use a USB flash drive to create a bootable recovery drive that can be used to troubleshoot
a Windows 8 computer that is unable to start. The USB flash drive can be used to reinstall the
original operating system and the programs that were installed at the factory.
NOTE: Any information on the USB flash drive will be erased before the recovery media is
created.
To create the recovery media, from the Start screen, type recovery drive, and then click on
Settings, then click on Create a recovery drive. Follow the on-screen instructions to continue.
2.
As you add hardware and software programs, create system restore points. A system restore point
is a snapshot of certain hard drive contents saved by Windows System Restore at a specific time.
A system restore point contains information that Windows uses, such as registry settings. Windows
creates a system restore point for you automatically during a Windows update and during other
system maintenance (such as a software update, security scanning, or system diagnostics). You
can also manually create a system restore point at any time. For more information and steps for
creating specific system restore points, see Windows Help and Support. From the Start screen,
type h, and then select Help and Support.
3.
As you add photos, video, music, and other personal files, create a backup of your personal
information. Windows File History can be set to regularly and automatically back up files from
libraries, desktop, contacts, and favorites. If files are accidentally deleted from the hard drive and
they can no longer be restored from the Recycle Bin, or if files become corrupted, you can restore
the files that you backed up using File History. Restoring files is also useful if you ever choose to
reset the computer by reinstalling Windows.
NOTE: File History is not enabled by default, so you must turn it on.
For more information and steps for enabling Windows File History, see Windows Help and
Support. From the Start screen, type h, and then select Help and Support.
Backing up, restoring, and recovering in Windows 8
167
Restoring and recovering using Windows 8 tools
Windows recovery tools provide access to several options for recovering your system. Choose the
method that best matches your situation and level of expertise:
●
If you need to restore your personal files and data, you can use Windows File History to restore
your information from the backups you created. For more information and steps for using File
History, see Windows Help and Support. From the Start screen, type h, and then select Help
and Support.
●
If you want to restore the system to a previous state without losing any personal information,
Windows System Restore is an option. System Restore allows you to restore without the
requirements of Windows Refresh or a reinstallation. Windows creates system restore points
automatically during a Windows update and other system maintenance events. Even if you did not
manually create a restore point, you can choose to restore to an automatically created restore
point. For more information and steps for using Windows System Restore, see Windows Help and
Support. From the Start screen, type h, and then select Help and Support.
●
If you want a quick and easy way to recover the system without losing your personal information,
settings, or apps that came preinstalled on your computer or were purchased from the Windows
Store, Windows Refresh is an option. This method does not require backing up data to another
drive. See Using Windows 8 Refresh on page 168.
●
If you want to reset your computer to its original state, Windows Reset provides an easy way to
remove all personal data, apps, and settings, and reinstall Windows. The Reset recovery tool
reinstalls the operating system and HP programs and drivers that were installed at the factory.
Software not installed at the factory must be reinstalled. Any personal files must be restored from
backups you made. See Using Windows 8 Reset on page 169.
●
If the computer is unable to start, you can use the Windows recovery USB flash drive you created
to recover the system. See Recovery using the Windows 8 recovery USB flash drive on page 170.
●
If the computer is unable to start and you did not create a recovery USB flash drive or the one you
created does not work, see Recovery using Windows 8 operating system media (purchased
separately) on page 171.
Using Windows 8 Refresh
NOTE: You may be prompted for your permission or password when using Refresh. See Windows
Help and Support for more information. From the Start screen, type h, and then select Help and
Support.
IMPORTANT: Refresh removes any traditional applications that were not originally installed on the
system at the factory.
NOTE: During Refresh, a list of removed traditional applications will be saved so that you have a
quick way to see what you might need to reinstall. See Help and Support for instructions on reinstalling
traditional applications. From the Start screen, type h, and then select Help and Support.

Backing up, restoring, and recovering in Windows 7
Your computer includes tools provided by HP and Windows to help you safeguard your information
and retrieve it if you ever need to. These tools will help you return your computer to a proper working
state or even back to the original factory state, all with simple steps.
This section provides information about the following processes:
●
Creating recovery media and backups
●
Restoring and recovering your system
NOTE: This section describes an overview of backing up, restoring, and recovering options. For more
details about the Windows Backup and Restore tools provided, see Help and Support. To access Help
and Support, select Start > Help and Support.
Recovery after a system failure is only as good as your most recent backup.
1.
After you successfully set up the computer, create recovery media. This media can be used to
reinstall the original operating system in cases where the hard drive is corrupted or has been
replaced. See Creating recovery media on page 172.
2.
As you add hardware and software programs, create system restore points. A system restore point
is a snapshot of certain hard drive contents saved by Windows System Restore at a specific time.
A system restore point contains information that Windows uses, such as registry settings. Windows
creates a system restore point for you automatically during a Windows update and during other
system maintenance (such as a software update, security scanning, or system diagnostics). You
can also manually create a system restore point at any time. For more information and steps for
creating specific system restore points, see Help and Support. To access Help and Support, select
Start > Help and Support.
3.
As you add photos, video, music, and other personal files, create a backup of your personal
information. If files are accidentally deleted from the hard drive and they can no longer be
restored from the Recycle Bin, or if files become corrupted, you can restore the files that you
backed up. In case of system failure, you can use the backup files to restore the contents of your
computer. See Backing up your information on page 175.
NOTE: HP recommends that you print the recovery procedures and save them for later use, in case of
system instability.
Creating recovery media
After you successfully set up the computer, create recovery media. The media can be used to reinstall
the original operating system in cases where the hard drive is corrupted or has been replaced.

Chapter 9 System backup and recovery
There are two types of recovery media. To determine which steps to follow for your computer:
1.
Click the Start button.
2.
Click All Programs.
●
If Security and Protection is listed, continue with the steps in Creating recovery media
using HP Recovery Manager (select models only) on page 173.
●
If Productivity and Tools is listed, continue with the steps in Creating recovery discs with
HP Recovery Disc Creator (select models only) on page 174.
Creating recovery media using HP Recovery Manager (select models only)
●
To create recovery discs, your computer must have a DVD writer. Use DVD+R or DVD-R discs
(purchased separately). The discs you use will depend on the type of optical drive you are using.
NOTE: DVD+R DL, DVD-R DL, or DVD±RW disc are not supported.
●
You have the option of creating a recovery USB flash drive instead, using a high-quality USB
drive.
●
If you are creating recovery discs, be sure to use high-quality discs. It is normal for the system to
reject defective discs. You will be prompted to insert a new blank disc to try again.
●
The number of discs in the recovery-disc set depends on your computer model (typically 3 to 6
DVDs). The Recovery Media Creation program tells you the specific number of blank discs needed
to make the set. If you are using a USB flash drive, the program will tell you the size of the drive
required to store all the data (minimum of 8 GB).
NOTE: The process of creating recovery media is lengthy. You can quit the process at any time.
The next time you initiate the process, it resumes where it left off.
NOTE: Do not use media cards for creating recovery media. The system may not be able to boot up
from a media card and you may not be able to run system recovery.
To create recovery discs:
1.
Close all open programs.
2.
Click the Start button, click All Programs, click Security and Protection, click Recovery
Manager, and then click HP Recovery Media Creation. If prompted, click Yes to allow the
program to continue.
3.
Click Create recovery media using blank DVD(s), and then click Next.
4.
Follow the on-screen instructions. Label each disc after you make it (for example, Recovery 1,
Recovery 2), and then store the discs in a secure place.
To create a recovery USB flash drive:

is required to create the recovery drive. If the USB flash drive does not have enough storage
capacity, it will appear grayed out, and you must replace it with a larger USB flash drive. Click
Next.
NOTE: Recovery Media Creation formats the USB flash drive, deleting any files on it.
6.
Follow the on-screen instructions. When the process is complete, label the USB flash drive and
store it in a secure place.
Creating recovery discs with HP Recovery Disc Creator (select models only)
HP Recovery Disc Creator is a software program that offers an alternative way to create recovery discs
on select models. After you successfully set up the computer, you can create recovery discs using HP
Recovery Disc Creator. The recovery discs allows you to reinstall your original operating system as well
as select drivers and applications if the hard drive becomes corrupted. HP Recovery Disc Creator
creates two kinds of recovery discs:
●
Windows 7 operating system DVD—Installs the operating system without additional drivers or
applications.
●
Driver Recovery DVD—Installs specific drivers and applications only, in the same way that the HP
Software Setup utility installs drivers and applications.
To create recovery discs, your computer must have a DVD writer. Use any of the following types of
discs (purchased separately): DVD+R, DVD+R DL, DVD-R, DVD-R DL, or DVD±RW. The discs you use
will depend on the type of optical drive you are using.

in a secure place.
Backing up your information
You should create your initial backup immediately after initial system 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. Your initial and subsequent backups allow you to restore your data and settings if a
failure occurs.
You can back up your information to an optional external hard drive, a network drive, or discs.
Note the following when backing up:
●
Store personal files in the Documents library, and back it up regularly.
●
Back up templates that are stored in their associated directories.
●
Save customized settings that appear 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.
●
When backing up to discs, number each disc after removing it from the drive.
NOTE: For detailed instructions on various backup and restore options, perform a search for these
topics in Help and Support. To access Help and Support, select Start > Help and Support.
NOTE: Windows includes the User Account Control feature to improve the security of your computer.
You may be prompted for your permission or password. Refer to Help and Support. To access Help
and Support, select Start > Help and Support.
To create a backup using Windows Backup and Restore:
NOTE: The backup process may take over an hour, depending on file size and the speed of the
computer.

11 Password security and resetting
CMOS
This computer supports security password features, which can be established through the Computer
Setup Utilities menu.
This computer supports two security password features that are established through the Computer Setup
Utilities menu: setup password and power-on password. When you establish only a setup password,
any user can access all the information on the computer except Computer Setup. When you establish
only a power-on password, the power-on password is required to access Computer Setup and any
other information on the computer. When you establish both passwords, only the setup password will
give you access to Computer Setup.
When both passwords are set, the setup password can also be used in place of the power-on
password as an override to log in to the computer. This is a useful feature for a network administrator.
If you forget the password for the computer, you can clear that password so you can gain access to the
information on the computer by resetting the password jumper.
CAUTION: Pushing the CMOS button will reset CMOS values to factory defaults. It is important to
back up the computer CMOS settings before resetting them in case they are needed later. Back up is
easily done through Computer Setup. See Computer Setup (F10) Utility on page 110 for information.
CAUTION: If you enable the stringent security feature in Computer Setup and you forget the setup
password or the power-on password, the computer is inaccessible and can no longer be used.
Enabling the stringent password disables the ability to reset the password by moving the jumper on the
system board.
If you lose or forget the password, the system board must be replaced. This scenario is not covered
under warranty.
To prevent the computer from becoming permanently unusable, record your configured setup password
or power-on password in a safe place away from your computer. Without these passwords, the
computer cannot be unlocked.
192
Chapter 11 Password security and resetting CMOS
