Product Features
Audio System
Your workstation has an integrated audio solution that supports
analog or digital external stereo speakers. The system is capable of
autosensing the speaker type and outputting the correct signal. The
autosensing is done by detecting if there is a mono jack plugged into
the line-out connector.
If you are using a set of digital speakers that have a stereo jack, and
you want the system to auto-switch to digital, you will need to use a
stereo-to-mono adapter to get the autosensing to work. However, if
you do not have a stereo-to-mono adapter present, then you can
manually switch the audio signal from analog to digital. See
“Solving Audio Problems” in the Troubleshooting Guide on the
Reference Library CD for instructions on how to manually switch
the audio signal for your operating system.
If you are using a headphone set that is mono, the system will
attempt to switch to digital and you will experience “noise” or
“silence.” This can be fixed by manually switching the signal to
analog. See “Solving Audio Problems” in the Troubleshooting Guide
on the Reference Library CD for instructions on how to manually
switch the audio signal for your operating system.
If your analog speakers or headphones are not working, make sure
that you are not using a mono adapter with autosensing enabled.

Compaq Evo Workstation W8000 Hardware Reference Guide
Hardware Upgrades
Installing Additional Memory
The Evo Workstation W8000 has two Direct Rambus memory
channels and uses Error Checking and Correcting (ECC) Direct
Rambus Inline Memory Modules (RIMMS)
Dual Direct Rambus memory channels operate on the following
three principles:
■
Dual channels maximize performance by doubling the speed
at which data is transferred to and from memory, unlike
single channel systems. Memory hubs divide each main channel
into two sub-channels. For example, channel A is divided into
channel A-top and channel A-bottom, and channel B is divided
into channel B-top and channel B-bottom. Each sub-channel
consists of two RIMM sockets.
■
Dual channels operate in unison, not independently, thus
identical RIMMs must be installed in pairs across channels.
For example, if you install a RIMM in RIMM socket 3 (channel
B-top), you must also install an identical RIMM in RIMM socket
4 (channel A-top).
■
Dual channels must have electrical continuity for your
system to boot. For example, if you install identical RIMMs in
RIMM sockets 3 and 4, but fail to install CRIMMs in RIMM
sockets 1 and 2, the continuity will be broken and your system
will not boot.
For more information on acceptable configurations, see “RIMM
Installation Guidelines” and “Configurations for RIMM Installation”
later in this chapter.

RIMM Installation
RIMM Installation Guidelines
WARNING: To reduce the risk of personalinjury when replacing or
removing RIMMs allow the module being removed from the RIMM
socket sufficient time to cool before touching it. RIMM temperatures
can reach 212°F (100°C).
CAUTION: When handling a RIMM, do not touch any of the contacts.
Doing so may damage the module.
CAUTION: Static electricity can damage the electronic components of
the workstation or option boards. Before beginning these memory
upgrade procedures, ensure that you are discharged of static electricity
by briefly touching a grounded metal object.
This workstation can support either ECC memory or non-ECC
memory. Compaq does not support mixing ECC and non-ECC
memory in the same system. Doing so will cause the system to blink
the NUMLOCK LED on the keyboard continuously and if a speaker
is installed in the system, there will be a short beep followed by
2 long beeps. In addition, the system will not boot the operating
system.
When installing RIMMs, you must follow the guidelines listed
below:
2-10
■
A RIMM can be installed only one way. Be sure to match the
two key slots on the RIMM with the tabs on the RIMM socket.
Push the RIMM down into the RIMM socket, ensuring that it is
fully inserted and properly seated, and that the retaining arms are
locked in place.
■
CRIMMs must be installed in all empty RIMM sockets on
channels that are used. The CRIMMs are removed when you
populate the sockets with RIMMs. For examples of the correct
configuration sequence, see “Configurations for RIMM
Installation” in this chapter.
Compaq Evo Workstation W8000 Hardware Reference Guide
Hardware Upgrades
■
Install RIMMs in pairs across both memory channels. Each
RIMM socket populated with a RIMM or CRIMM on Channel A
must be populated with an identical RIMM or CRIMM on
Channel B. Use one of the four configurations listed under
“Configurations for RIMM Installation” in this chapter.
■
Do not exceed 32 Direct RDRAM devices on each Direct
Rambus memory channel. A label on the RIMM will indicate the
number and speed of Direct RDRAM devices on the RIMM.
The number of Direct RDRAM devices on a RIMM cannot be
changed.
■
Use 800-MHz RIMMs (or future speeds) only. Your system will
not boot if slower speed RIMMS (i.e. 600 or 712-MHz) are
installed.
■
Do not mix RIMMs with different memory speeds. Performance
will reflect the slowest speed RIMM.
■
Use only RIMMs that have been tested and approved by
Compaq. Not all RIMMs meet the Compaq standard for quality
and reliability.
CAUTION: The previous guidelines must be followed when installing
RIMMs, or your workstation will not function.
CAUTION: When handling a memory module, do not touch any of the
contacts. Doing so can damage the module.

Hardware Upgrades
Guidelines for Separating the Heatsink/Processor Assembly
Before upgrading your workstation with a new processor, the
following sequential events must take place in order to remove the
existing heatsink and processor assembly:
1. The heatsink and processor assembly need to be heated to an
optimum temperature to break the compound bonding them
together. See the following sections:
❏ “Heatsink Cool-Down Time”
❏ “Heatsink Warm-Up Time”
2. The heatsink must be separated from the processor.
3. The processor must be released from the processor socket.
Heatsink Cool-Down Time
The heat generated from the processor core transfers to the heatsink
making the assembly too hot to handle. From a power-on state to a
power-off state, it takes 13 minutes to cool the heatsink sufficiently
so that it can be handled comfortably while the compound holding it
to the processor remains pliable.
2-44
Compaq Evo Workstation W8000 Hardware Reference Guide
Hardware Upgrades
Heatsink Warm-Up Time
Minimal warm-up time is required to generate enough heat to soften
the compound holding the heatsink to the cold processor.
CAUTION: Lifting the heatsink straight up while it is in a cold state can
result in damage to the processor, because it may prematurely pull the
heatsink and processor assembly out of the processor socket. If this
should occur, you will need to open the processor socket, by lifting up
on the processor retention lever, before attempting to install the new
processor.
From a power-off state to a power-on state, see the following steps to
warm (but not overheat) the heatsink so that the heatsink can be
handled comfortably while the compound holding it to the processor
is still pliable.
1. Turn on the workstation and allow the operating system to boot.
2. Shut down the operating system properly, then turn off the
workstation and any external devices. Disconnect the power cord
from the grounded AC outlet.

Hard Drive Installation
Using the Cable-Select Feature with Ultra ATA Devices
Selected models of the Evo Workstation W8000 have an internal
Ultra ATA hard drive installed. The configuration of the drive
employs a cable-select feature that identifies the drive as device 0
(primary drive) or device 1 (secondary drive).
Device 1 is the drive connected to the cable’s middle connector.
Device 0 is the drive connected to the cable’s end connector (applies
only to 80-conductor ATA cables). See “Guidelines for Installing
Ultra ATA Devices” in this appendix for an example of an Ultra
ATA cable.
Compaq hard drives ship with jumpers preset to cable-select mode;
therefore, no jumper setting changes on the existing or optional
drives are required. If you purchase a third-party hard drive, refer to
the documentation included with the kit to ensure proper installation
and configuration of cables.
If you are installing a second device on the primary controller, you
must use an 80-conductor Ultra ATA cable for optimum
performance. This cable is standard on selected models.
Compaq Evo Workstation W8000 Hardware Reference Guide
B-1
Hard Drive Installation
Guidelines for Installing Ultra ATA Devices
When installing additional Ultra ATA drives, follow these
guidelines:
■ If using multiple Ultra ATA devices, Compaq recommends that
the devices be split between the primary and secondary Ultra
ATA channels for optimum performance. Use an additional
Ultra ATA cable to connect the additional device(s) to the
system board.
■ UATA-100 cable:
❏ 18 inches maximum total length, 80-conductor cable with
maximum spacing of 6 inches between Drive 0 and Drive 1.
UATA-100 cable
1 Device 0 (primary drive) connector
2 Device 1 (secondary drive) connector
3 System board connector
B-2
■
For optimum performance, connect hard drives to the primary
controller. Connect expansion devices, such as Ultra ATA
CD-ROM drives, tape drives, and diskette drives, to the
secondary controller (white connector on Evo Workstation
W8000).
■
Install either a third-height or a half-height drive into a halfheight bay.
■
Install guide screws to ensure that the drive lines up correctly in
the drive cage. Compaq has provided extra guide screws
installed in the front of the workstation chassis behind the front
bezel. Some options use M3 metric hardware. Compaq-supplied
metric screws are black.
■
If only one device is connected to a cable, that device must be
attached to the end (Device 0) connector.
Compaq Evo Workstation W8000 Hardware Reference Guide
Hard Drive Installation
SCSI Devices
This section contains information relating to SCSI device guidelines
and installation.
Guidelines for Using SCSI Devices
When installing and operating SCSI devices, follow these guidelines:
■
A single Ultra SCSI controller supports up to seven SCSI
devices per channel.
■
Each Wide-Ultra SCSI, Ultra-Wide SCSI, Wide Ultra2 SCSI,
Ultra 320 SCSI, or Ultra 160 SCSI controller supports up to
15 SCSI devices per channel.
■
If you are using multiple SCSI devices, Compaq recommends
that the devices be split between Channel A and Channel B, if
available, for optimum performance.
■
Compaq recommends the following SCSI cable:
❏
■
■
53 inches maximum length twisted-pair, LVD cable with
built-in terminator, maximum of 5 drives with a minimum
drive spacing of 5.25 inches
The SCSI controller requires a unique SCSI ID (0-7 or 8-15) for
each SCSI device installed. The controller identifies a SCSI
device by its SCSI ID number rather than by its location. Moving
a SCSI device from one position to another on the SCSI chain
does not affect communication between the controller and the
device. The reserved and available SCSI ID numbers for SCSI
devices are:
❏
0—reserved for the primary hard drive
❏
7—reserved for the controller
❏
1 through 6 and 8 through 15—available for all other SCSI
devices
Either a CD-ROM or DVD-ROM is shipped in bay 4.
Compaq Evo Workstation W8000 Hardware Reference Guide
B-3
Hard Drive Installation
■
Every SCSI chain or circuit must be terminated (closed) at both
ends. Some system boards have both ends of the SCSI cable
connected to, and terminated by, the system board. Termination
can be accomplished through one of the following methods:
❏ Using a cable with a built-in terminator. This cable was
shipped with your workstation.
❏ Using a cable with a terminating resistor plug in the last
connector.
❏ Connecting a SCSI device with its termination enabled into
the last connector.
❏ Connecting an external SCSI device with its termination
enabled to the external SCSI connector on the rear panel of
the computer.
■
Turn on all external SCSI devices before turning on the power to
the computer. This action enables the SCSI controller to
recognize the external devices.
■
The system accommodates a combination of internal and
external SCSI devices, such as hard drives, tape drives, and
CD-ROM drives.
■
Compaq does not recommend mixing different-width SCSI
devices on the same SCSI chain or on the same SCSI channel.
Mixing devices of different widths on the same chain or channel
will always result in the data transfer rate of the slowest device
in that chain. It is acceptable to mix Wide-Ultra2, Ultra 160, and
Ultra 320 devices on a single channel. Do not put narrow devices
on a channel with any device type other than another narrow
device.
For additional information about optional SCSI devices, refer to the
documentation included with the device or contact your Compaq
authorized dealer, reseller, or service provider.
CAUTION: Do not route cables near the air intake to the power supply.
Cables routed in this manner can block airflow to the power supply,
causing it to overheat.
B-4
Compaq Evo Workstation W8000 Hardware Reference Guide
Hard Drive Installation
Guidelines for Installing SCSI Devices
If you mix Ultra ATA and SCSI hard drives in the same system, the
Ultra ATA drive will be the boot drive unless the boot order is
changed in the F10 Setup.
When replacing a hard drive, the replacement drive should be of the
same type as the drive being removed. If you are replacing an
Ultra ATA hard drive with a SCSI hard drive, you will need a
multimode LVD SCSI cable option kit.
If only one SCSI hard drive is used, it should be installed in bay 2.
Before installing a SCSI device:
■
Verify the SCSI ID of the drive and, if necessary, set the SCSI
ID to a unique number. See “Guidelines for Using SCSI
Devices” in this appendix or refer to the documentation included
with the device.
■
Determine if the device requires that termination be enabled or
disabled. Set the termination if necessary. See “Using a SCSI
Cable” in this appendix or refer to the documentation included
with the device.
SCSI Controllers
Your workstation ships with an integrated dual channel SCSI
controller. Channel A has one internal SCSI connector on the system
board. Channel B has two connectors: one internal SCSI connector
on the system board and one external SCSI connector on the rear
panel of the workstation.
SCSI Cables
The removable hard drive cage and front drive bays are available for
installing or connecting mass storage SCSI devices.
Compaq Evo Workstation W8000 Hardware Reference Guide

Hard Drive Installation
Using a SCSI Cable
Selected models of the Evo Workstation W8000 ship with a
multimode SCSI cable that supports Low Voltage Differential
(LVD) or single-ended devices (UATA models do not have the SCSI
cable).
The Evo Workstation W8000 ships with a LVD cable that supports
up to five SCSI devices. The cable accommodates up to three SCSI
devices in the removable hard drive cage and two in the front drive
bay area. Some Evo Workstation W8000 models ship with an
internal SCSI drive installed in the front drive bay area. You can add
additional high-performance SCSI drives using the external SCSI
connector located on the rear panel of the workstation.
Five-device SCSI cable with terminator
The cable that shipped with your workstation may look different than
the one illustrated (a five-device cable).
If you are installing a narrow SCSI device, you will need to attach a
68-pin to a 50-pin SCSI adapter.
For additional information about installing optional SCSI devices,
refer to the documentation included with the device option kit, or
contact your Compaq authorized dealer, reseller, or service provider.

The spare part number for a standard coin cell battery is 153099-001,
which corresponds to a CR2032 battery or equivalent.
WARNING: Your computer contains an internal lithium manganese dioxide,
vanadium pentoxide, or alkaline battery or battery pack. There is a risk of fire
and burns if the battery pack is not handled properly. To reduce the risk of
personal injury:
■ Do not attempt to recharge the battery.
■ Do not expose the battery to temperatures higher than 140°F (60°C).
■ Do not disassemble, crush, puncture, short external contacts, or dispose
of the battery in fire or water.
■ Replace the battery only with the Compaq spare designated for this
product.
CAUTION: Static electricity can damage the electronic components of
the workstation or optional equipment. Before beginning these
procedures, ensure that you are discharged of static electricity by
briefly touching a grounded metal object.
Batteries, battery packs, and accumulators should not be disposed of
together with the general household waste. To forward them to
recycling or proper disposal, please use the public collection system or
return them to Compaq, their authorized partners, or their agents.

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.
Compaq Evo Workstation W8000 Hardware Reference Guide

Electrostatic Discharge
Grounding Methods
Several methods for grounding are available. Use one or more of the
following methods when handling or installing electrostatic-sensitive
parts:
■
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 snugly
against the skin.
■
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 or if you need for more information about static
electricity, contact your Compaq authorized dealer, reseller, or
service provider.

Routine Computer Care and
Shipping Preparation
Routine Computer Care
Follow these suggestions to take care of your computer and monitor:
■ 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 a unit that is in a desktop
configuration because 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 your
computer, see 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 properly 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.

CD-ROM Drive Precautions
Be sure to observe the following guidelines while operating or
cleaning your CD-ROM 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,
because 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.
Cleaning
Safety
If any object or liquid falls into the drive, immediately unplug the
computer and have it checked by an authorized Compaq service
provider.
