Technician Notes
!
WARNING: Only authorized technicians trained by Compaq should attempt to repair this equipment. All
troubleshooting and repair procedures are detailed to allow only subassembly/module level repair.
Because of the complexity of the individual boards and subassemblies, no one should attempt to make
repairs at the component level or to make modifications to any printed wiring board. Improper repairs can
create a safety hazard. Any indications of component replacement or printed wiring board modifications
may void any warranty.
!
WARNING: To reduce the risk of electric shock or damage to the equipment:
•
Do not disable the power grounding plug. The grounding plug is an important safety feature.
•
Plug the power cord into a grounded (earthed) electrical outlet that is easily accessible at all times.
•
Disconnect the power from the computer by unplugging the power cord either from the electrical
outlet or the computer.
CAUTION: To properly ventilate your system, you must provide at least 3-inches (7.6-cm) of clearance at
the front and back of the computer and 1 inch (2.5 cm) on each side.
System Serial Number
The serial number is located on the top of the system unit cover toward the right front and on the
rear of the chassis.
For the purpose of AssetControl, the serial number is embedded in the CMOS on the system
board.

System Design
This section presents a design overview and functional descriptions of the key components of the
Compaq Deskpro EN Series of Personal Computers. All replaceable components are identified in
Chapter 3, and removal and replacement instructions are presented in Chapters 5 and 6.
1.3.1
Desktop Design Overview
The desktop models of the Compaq Deskpro EN Series of Personal Computers use a highly
serviceable chassis to house the slide-out system board, expansion board cage, power supply, and
mass storage devices. The expansion board cage houses the expansion boards.
All internal components are accessible when the cover with its integrated front bezel is removed.
The cover assembly is attached to the chassis with quick release cover latches; no tools are
required to remove the cover assembly.
The system board is easily removed from the chassis after the cover is removed and the expansion
board cage is raised by lifting a pair of top-mounted green levers. Once the system unit cover has
been removed and the expansion board cage raised, there is no need to remove any other
component to access the system board. Details of the disassembly procedure are found in
Chapter 5, “Removal and Replacement Procedures.”
The tilt drive cage is located on the right side of the chassis, directly in front of the power supply.
Tilting the cage allows full service access to the rear of the drives without the need for any tools.
The drive cage accommodates one side-mounted internal hard drive and provides three bays for
external access drives.
The drive cage allows drive installation without the use of rails. Two screws on each side of the
drive are used as guides, and drive release latches are used to secure the drives into the bays. Extra
guide screws (standard and metric thread) are provided on the front of the chassis, to the left of the
drive cage for use when installing additional drives.
The expansion board cage with the riser board mounts at a right angle to the system board. The
riser board is secured to the expansion board cage with three screws. Expansion boards are
installed at a right angle into the riser board. A single screw secures each expansion board to the
expansion board cage.
The power supply is mounted in the right rear corner of the chassis. Embedded clips located on
the bottom of the power supply engage cutouts in the floor of the chassis. The power supply is
held in place by three screws that are installed through the rear panel of the chassis.

serviceable chassis to house the slide-out system board, expansion board cage, power supply, and
mass storage devices. The expansion board cage houses the expansion boards.
All internal components are accessible when the access panel and the front bezel are removed.
The access panel is attached to the chassis with three easily removed thumb screws and the front
bezel is attached with tabs.
The system board is easily removed from the chassis after the access panel is removed and the
expansion board cage is raised by lifting a pair of top-mounted green levers. Once the access
panel has been removed and the expansion board cage raised, there is no need to remove any other
component to access the system board. Details of the disassembly procedure are found in
Chapter 6, “Removal and Replacement Procedures.”
The drive cage is located at the top of the chassis, accommodates one internal hard drive, and
provides four bays for external access drives.
The drive cage allows drive installation without the use of rails. Two screws on each side of the
drive are used as guides, and drive release latches are used to secure the drives into the bays. Extra
guide screws (standard and metric thread) are provided on the front of the chassis for use when
installing additional drives.
The expansion board cage with the riser board mounts at a right angle to the system board. The
riser board is secured to the expansion board cage with three screws. Expansion boards are
installed at a right angle into the riser board. A single screw secures each expansion board to the
expansion board cage.
The power supply is mounted in the top rear of the chassis. It is supported by built-in latches and
held in place by three screws that are installed through the rear panel of the chassis.

SOFTWARE REFERENCE
2.1
Installing the Operating System
CAUTION: Do not add optional hardware devices to your computer until the operating system is
successfully installed. Doing so may cause errors and may prevent the operating system from installing
properly.
2.1.1
Microsoft Windows 95 or Windows 98
The first time the computer is turned on, Microsoft Windows is automatically installed. This takes
approximately 5 to 15 minutes, depending on your system hardware configuration. At the
beginning of the installation process, the user is prompted to select the appropriate language for
the operating system. Read and follow the instructions that appear on the screen to complete the
installation.
CAUTION: Once the automatic installation has begun, DO NOT TURN OFF THE COMPUTER UNTIL THE
PROCESS IS COMPLETE. Turning off the computer during the installation process might damage the
software that runs the computer.
When the Welcome to Windows screen is displayed, the installation process is complete.
2.1.2
Microsoft Windows NT Workstation 4.0
The first time you turn on your computer, Microsoft Windows NT Workstation is automatically
installed for you. This takes approximately 30 minutes, depending on the system hardware
configuration. At the beginning of the installation process, the user is prompted to select the
appropriate language for the operating system. Read and follow the instructions that appear on
the screen to complete the installation.
Installing Windows NT Workstation 4.0 Over a Network
Network installation is used primarily for installing or upgrading Microsoft Windows NT
Workstation over a local area network. It can also be used to install additional drivers or files with
Windows NT.
✎
This capability does not imply the grant of a site license for Microsoft Windows
NT Workstation and should only be used to install the operating system on
computers for which the appropriate software license has already been obtained.
This installation method should be used to deploy Windows NT using a distribution share point
over a network connection.
The Windows NT installation that is completed when the computer is first turned on creates an
I386 directory. This directory and its subdirectories provide the Compaq-specific integration of
Windows NT for the computer model. This image, license permitting, can be used as a
distribution share point to deploy Windows NT over a network connection.
Compaq Deskpro EN Series of Personal Computers
2-1
To use distribution share point to install or upgrade Windows NT, see the Windows NT Resource
Kit and its documentation.
Installing or Upgrading Device Drivers
To install hardware devices such as a printer, a display adapter, a network adapter, or other device
after the Windows NT installation is completed, Windows NT needs access to the appropriate
software drivers for the devices.
The I386 directory and its subdirectories provide the Compaq-specific integration of Windows NT
for the computer model and include device drivers supported by Windows NT.
When prompted for the I386 directory on the Windows NT CD, replace the path specification
with C:\I386 or use the browse button of the dialog box to browse the computer for the I386
folder. This points Windows NT to the appropriate drivers and allows installation of the device to
be completed.

The SMART hard drive monitors hard drive activity to predict failures and, in some cases, fix
faults before failures occur. Fault prediction and failure indication parameters, such as abnormal
variations in spinup and seek times, or non-correctable read and write errors, are tracked to
determine the hard drive condition. Should these errors become significant, the computer displays
a warning message. The warning gives you time to back up the hard drive and replace it prior to
experiencing downtime or loss of data. The Prefailure Warranty for SMART hard drives allows
you to replace these drives, free of charge, before the drives fail.
SMART hard drives are compliant with the Small Form Factor Committee Specification for SelfMonitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology (SMART). SMART is the industry standard
technology, pioneered by Compaq and originally called IntelliSafe, that allows you to prevent data
loss and minimize downtime, in concert with Compaq Insight Management Agents.
2.10.3
Ultra ATA Integrity Monitoring
Ultra ATA Integrity Monitoring monitors the integrity of data as it is transferred between an Ultra
ATA hard drive and the system’s core logic. If the computer detects an abnormal number of
transmission errors, the computer displays a Local Alert message with recommended actions. An
alert is also sent over the network to the system administrator.
2.10.4
ECC Fault Prediction and Prefailure Warranty
When the computer encounters an excessive number of error checking and correcting (ECC)
memory errors, the computer displays a Local Alert message. This message contains detailed
information about the errant memory module, allowing you to take action before you experience
non-correctable memory errors. The Prefailure Warranty for ECC memory modules allows you to
replace these modules, free of charge, before the modules actually fail. ECC memory modules are
optional on all Compaq personal computers.
✎
2-22
To use this feature, you must replace the standard DIMMs with ECC DIMMs.

Proactive Backup
Proactive Backup software initiates a tape or PD-CD backup upon receiving notice of an
impending SMART hard drive failure.
The Seagate Backup Exec SMART Client works with Seagate Backup Exec tape backup software
on the server, or with Seagate Backup Exec software supporting the PD-CD drive.
Together with the Insight Management Agents, this software offers a Proactive Backup solution.
For instructions on configuring the Backup Exec SMART Client, contact your systems
administrator or refer to the Seagate Backup Exec documentation.
Cheyenne has also created an agent to support the Proactive Backup solution. The SMART Drive
Agent is the component that recognizes and reacts to the SMART hard drive fault alerts. This
agent is an extension to the Microsoft Windows 95 tape backup agent for the standalone
application ARCsolo for Windows. This agent works with the SMART hard drive to ensure that
critical data will be protected in the event of a hard drive failure.
2.10.6
Surge-Tolerant Power Supply
An integrated surge-tolerant power supply provides greater reliability when the computer is hit
with an unpredictable power surge. This power supply is rated to withstand a power surge of up to
2000 volts without incurring any system downtime or data loss.
2.10.7
Thermal Sensor
The thermal sensor is a hardware and software feature that tracks the internal temperature of the
computer. This feature displays a warning message when the normal range is exceeded, which
gives you time to take action before internal components are damaged or data is lost.

Software Updating and Management
Remote ROM Flash, Remote Wakeup, and Remote Shutdown, when integrated with Management
Solutions Partners products, deliver on-going management of firmware, 24 hours a day. This
supplements the software distribution capabilities of the Solutions Partners products, which can
also be used to distribute new applications, device drivers, and other system software. The
Compaq Support Software CD and Web site includes updated ROM images and device drivers
which can be distributed to client PCs using these software tools.
For more information, refer to the online Remote Management Administrators Guide. The Remote
Management Administrators Guide is included with the Remote Management Administration
Tools, and is available on the Support Software CD for Compaq Desktop, Portable, and
Workstation Products or at the Compaq Web Site at www.compaq.com.
2.11.1
Remote ROM Flash
Your computer comes with reprogrammable flash ROM (read only memory). By establishing a
setup password in Security Management, you can protect the ROM from being unintentionally
updated or overwritten. This is important to ensure computer operating integrity. Should you need
or want to upgrade your ROM, you may:
„ Order an upgraded ROMPaq diskette from Compaq.
„ Order the Compaq Support Software CD for Compaq Desktop, Portable, and Workstation
Products.
„ Download the latest ROMPaq images from the Compaq World Wide Web site
(www.compaq.com).
CAUTION: For maximum ROM protection, be sure to establish a setup password. The setup password
prevents unauthorized ROM upgrades.
Using Remote ROM Flash
Remote ROM Flash allows the system administrator to safely upgrade the ROM on remote
Compaq Deskpro personal computers, directly from the centralized network management console.
Enabling the system administrator to perform this task remotely, on multiple computers, results in
a consistent deployment of and greater control over Deskpro ROM images over the network. It
also results in greater productivity and lower total cost of ownership.
Compaq created the Remote ROM Flash capability to be secure and fail-safe. All Deskpro
ROMPaq ROM images from Compaq are digitally signed to ensure authenticity and minimize
potential corruption. The ROM firmware includes a Boot Block that is protected during the flash
process and allows the Deskpro to be restarted, in the unlikely event of an unsuccessful ROM
flash.
✎
Your computer must be powered on, or turned on through Remote Wakeup, to
take advantage of Remote ROM Flash. Use of Remote ROM Flash also requires
an established setup password.
For more information on enabling Remote ROM Flash, refer to the online Remote Management
Administrators Guide. The Remote Management Administrators Guide is included with the
Remote Management Administration Tools, and is available on the Support Software CD for
Compaq Desktop, Portable, and Workstation Products or at the Compaq Web Site at
www.compaq.com.

Software Reference
FailSafe Boot Block ROM
The FailSafe Boot Block ROM allows for system recovery in the unlikely event of a ROM flash
failure, for example, if a power failure occurs during a ROM upgrade. The Boot Block is a flashprotected section of the ROM that checks to validate the system ROM each time power to the
system is turned on.
„ If the system ROM is valid, the system starts normally.
„ If the system ROM fails the validation check, the FailSafe Boot Block ROM provides
enough support to start the system from a ROMPaq diskette, which will program the
system ROM with a valid image.
Because there is no video or hard drive support from the Boot Block ROM, the keyboard lights
communicate information. When the Boot Block detects an invalid system ROM, the system
sounds a series of beeps (one long and three short) and flashes the three keyboard lights.
To recover the system after hearing the FailSafe Boot Block beeps, complete the following steps:
1. Remove any diskettes from the diskette drive and turn off the power.
2. Insert a ROMPaq diskette into the diskette drive.
3. Turn on power to the system.
If a setup password has been established, the Caps Lock light will turn on.
4. Enter the setup password.
If the system successfully starts from the diskette and successfully reprograms the ROM, then
the three keyboard lights will turn on. A “rising tone” series of beeps also signals successful
completion.

REMOVAL AND REPLACEMENT PRELIMINARIES
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 there is always voltage 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.
4.1
Electrostatic Discharge Information
A sudden discharge of static electricity from your finger or other conductor can destroy staticsensitive devices or microcircuitry. Often the spark is neither felt nor heard, but damage occurs.
An electronic device exposed to electrostatic discharge (ESD) may not be affected at all and can
work perfectly throughout a normal cycle. The device may function normally for a while, then
degrade 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 proper 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.

Personal Grounding Methods and Equipment
Use the following equipment to prevent static electricity damage to equipment:
Wrist straps are flexible straps with a minimum of one-megohm +/- 10% resistance in the ground
cords. To provide proper ground, a strap must be worn snug against bare skin. The ground cord
must be connected and fit snugly into the banana plug connector on the grounding mat or
workstation.
Heel straps/Toe straps/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 them on both feet
with a minimum of one-megohm +/- 10% resistance between the operator and ground.

Grounding Workstations
To prevent static damage at the workstation, use the following precautions:
„ Cover the workstation with approved static-dissipative material. Provide a wrist strap
connected to the work surface and properly grounded tools and equipment.
„ Use static-dissipative mats, foot straps, or air ionizers to give added protection.
„ Handle electrostatic sensitive components, parts, and assemblies by the case or PCB
laminate. Handle them only at static-free workstations.
„ Turn off power and input signals before inserting and removing connectors or test
equipment.
„ Use fixtures made of static-safe materials when fixtures must directly contact dissipative
surfaces.
„ Keep work area free of nonconductive materials such as ordinary plastic assembly aids and
Styrofoam.
„ Use field service tools, such as cutters, screwdrivers, and vacuums, that are conductive.

procedures:
CAUTION: Use safety glasses equipped with side shields before attempting to clean debris from under
the keys.
„ Visible debris underneath or between the keys may be removed by vacuuming or shaking.
„ Canned, pressurized air may be used to clean debris from under the keys. Caution should
be used as too much air pressure can dislodge lubricants applied under the wide keys.
Compaq Deskpro EN Series of Personal Computers
4-5
„ If you remove a key, use a specially designed key puller to prevent damage to the keys.
This tool is available through many electronic supply outlets.
CAUTION: Never remove a wide leveled key (like the space bar) from the keyboard. If these keys are
improperly removed or installed, the keyboard may not function properly.
„ Cleaning under a key may be done with a swab moistened with isopropyl alcohol and
squeezed out. Be careful not to wipe away lubricants necessary for proper key functions.
Use tweezers to remove any fibers or dirt in confined areas. Allow the parts to air dry
before reassembly.
4.2.4
Cleaning the Monitor
„ Wipe the monitor screen with a clean cloth moistened with water or with a towlette
designed for cleaning monitors. Do not use sprays or aerosols directly on the screen; the
liquid may seep into the housing and damage a component. Never use solvents or
flammable liquids on the monitor.
„ To clean the monitor body follow the procedures in Section 4.2.2.
4.2.5
Cleaning the Mouse
Before cleaning the mouse, ensure that the power to the computer is turned off.

Clearing Configuration
The computer's configuration (CMOS) may occasionally be corrupted. If it does, it is necessary to
clear the CMOS memory.
To clear and reset the configuration, perform the following procedure:
1. Prepare the computer for disassembly (Section 5.4 or 6.3).
CAUTION: The power cord must be disconnected from the power source before changing the jumpers.
Failure to do so may damage the system board.
2. Remove the system unit cover (Section 5.6) or the access panel (Section 6.6).
3. Move the E50 jumper from pins 1 and 2 to pins 2 and 3 for 60 seconds; then, replace the jumper
to its original position.
4. Replace the system cover.
5. Turn the computer on.
6. Run the Computer Setup utility to reconfigure the system.
When CMOS is cleared, both the power-on password and the setup password become invalid
because both are stored in the configuration memory. You will need to reset the passwords.

HARD DRIVES
Compaq Computer Corporation uses IDE hard disk drives that conform to two different
primary/secondary implementations. These are Conner mode and ATA-compatible mode. These
two modes are incompatible with one another.
Device 0/Device 1 Relationship
A device 0/device 1 relationship exists when there are two hard drives connected to a single port.
In this situation, one drive must be designated as the device 0, or primary drive and the other as
the device 1, or secondary drive. This designation is necessary because both drives cannot work
simultaneously.
SMART
The SMART IDE hard drives for the Compaq Deskpro Personal Computers have built-in drive
failure prediction that warns the user or the network administrator of an impending failure or crash
of the hard drive.
Automatic Soft-Drive Types
An automatic soft-drive type is a mechanism where the system ROM and Computer Setup
automatically build a soft-drive type to provide support for IDE hard drives that are not in the hard
drive parameter table.
The soft-drive types are assigned according to the table below:
Table C-1
Soft-Drive Type Assignments
Drive
Hard Drive Type
Controller
0

66
Primary
Primary
0

Secondary
Secondary
For hard drives that are greater than 528 MB, the system automatically translates the hard drive
parameter for DOS by logically halving the cylinders and doubling the heads. This allows DOS to
access greater than 528 MB. The translated hard drive parameters are put into the hard drive
parameter table in the shadow RAM copy of the system ROM. When using any operating system
other than DOS, you must use F10 Setup to set up the hard drive parameter table without
translation.

DIAGNOSTIC ERROR CODES
Diagnostic error codes occur if the system recognizes a problem while running the Compaq
Diagnostics program. These error codes help identify possibly defective subassemblies.
Table D-1 lists the device codes (AABB-CC) and the subtest range (AABB-CC) covered by
Compaq Diagnostics Tests. Some codes listed in this table will not apply to the computers

Special Error Codes
This section includes the error codes for the following devices:
„ SCSI Hard drives
„ SCSI Tape drives
„ SCSI PD-CD drives
„ All CD-ROM drives
The error codes are written in the format AABB-CC and can be determined by looking up the
respective parts of the code in the three corresponding tables numbered D-16, D-17, and D-18.
AA (Table D-16) identifies the drive type being tested. BB (Table D-17) identifies the type of test.
CC (Table D-18) identifies the exact error received.
For example, if you received a diagnostic error code of 6523-05, you would look at Table D-16 to
identify the meaning of the first two numbers, 65. This indicates a hard drive problem. The second
set of two numbers, 23, refers to a random read, as shown in Table D-17. The last two numbers,
05, indicate a seek failure, as listed in Table D-18. When you combine this information, you know
that the diagnostics program was testing the random-read functioning of the hard drive and
received a seek failure. The device is faulty and must be replaced.

TROUBLESHOOTING WITHOUT DIAGNOSTICS
Preliminary Checklist
This section describes some simple, preliminary tests and guidelines for troubleshooting the
computer without using the diagnostics.
If you encounter some minor problem with the computer or a software application, go through the
following checklist for possible solutions before running any of the diagnostic utilities:
„ Are the computer and monitor connected to a working electrical outlet?
„ Is the computer turned on?
„ Is the green power light illuminated?
„ Is the monitor turned on?
„ Is the green monitor light illuminated?
„ Turn up the monitor brightness and contrast controls if the monitor is dim.
„ Press and hold any key. If the system beeps, then the keyboard should be operating
correctly.
„ Check all cables for loose or incorrect connections.
„ Reconfigure the computer after installing a non-plug and play expansion board or other
option, such as a diskette drive.
„ Are all of the necessary device drivers installed?
„ Have all printer drivers been installed for each application?
„ Remove all diskettes from the diskette drives before you turn on the system.
„ Are all switch set correctly?
„ Is the NIC Remote Wakeup cable (featured on some models) connected between the NIC
and the riser/system board?

Resolving Audio Hardware Conflicts
Hardware conflicts occur when two or more peripheral devices contend for the same signal lines
or channels. Conflicts between the audio interface and another peripheral device may be due to
the settings of the base I/O addresses, interrupts, or DMA channels. The audio interface typically
has the following settings:
Table F-11
Audio Interface Settings
Item
Setting
Base I/O address
220H
FM Synthesizer (OPL III)
388-38Bh
Interrupt
IRQ 5
8-bit DMA
Channel 1
To resolve hardware conflicts:
1. Change the hardware settings of your audio card or the peripheral card in your system if the
peripheral card is using the audio interface setting. You can change settings for integrated audio
using Computer Setup.
2. If you are unsure of the settings of the peripheral cards, you can isolate the source of the
problem by temporarily removing all cards and other essential cards such as the disk controller.
After that, add the cards back one at a time until the card that is causing the conflict is found.
Problem
Possible Solution

2. Turn the CD-ROM volume control knob on the front or back of
the computer to increase the volume.
Troubleshooting Using Compaq Intelligent Manageability Features
The Local Alert Pop-Up Dialog notifies you of an impending or actual hardware failure. If the
computer is connected to a network and the Compaq Insight Management Agents are installed and
configured, an Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) trap (message) is sent to the
specified SNMP-compliant management application.
The Local Alert Pop-Up Dialog also tells you the steps you need to take prior to a hardware
failure to avoid loss of data and damage to the computer. The system administrator can create a
customized action message that might include contact telephone or pager numbers.
To close the Local Alert Pop-Up Dialog, click the Close button. To retrieve fault information after
closing the dialog, run Compaq Insight Personal Edition.
For more detailed information, refer to the online Intelligent Manageability Guide.

SCSI GUIDELINES
This appendix contains helpful guidelines for installing Small Computer System Interface (SCSI)
devices. For more detailed information, refer to the documentation that came with your computer.
Guidelines for Installing Optional SCSI Devices
When installing and operating SCSI devices, you must adhere to the following guidelines:
„ A single SCSI controller allows you to daisy-chain up to seven SCSI devices. These
may be hard drives, CD-ROM drives, scanners, tape drives, and/or other SCSI devices
installed in your computer. Most SCSI controllers have connectors for both internal and
external devices.
„ Every SCSI device must have a unique identification (ID) number. The SCSI
controller identifies signals to and from a SCSI device by its SCSI ID number rather than
its location. Moving a SCSI device from one position to another on the SCSI chain does
not affect the communication between the controller and the SCSI device. Check the
information that came with your device for the recommended SCSI ID number to be
applied. The reserved and available SCSI ID numbers for Compaq computers are as
follows:
❏
0 is reserved for the primary hard drive and has the lowest device priority.
❏
1 through 6 are available for use by all SCSI devices.
❏
7 is reserved for the system board and has the highest device priority.
„ Every SCSI chain or circuit must be terminated (closed) at both ends. Termination can
be accomplished in one of several ways:
❏
Use a cable with a built-in terminator.
❏
Use a cable with a terminating resistor plug in the last connector.
❏
Connect a SCSI device, with the termination enabled, into the last connector.
Some systems have both ends of the SCSI cable connected to, and terminated by, the system
board.
„ Turn on all external SCSI devices before turning on power to the computer. This
enables the controller to recognize the external SCSI devices and automatically reset.
When an external SCSI device is connected to the external SCSI connector on the rear
panel of the computer, that device becomes the end of the SCSI chain and must be
terminated.
„ All SCSI hard drives must be either internal or external, but never both. The system
does accommodate a combination of other internal and external SCSI devices, such as
SCSI tape and CD-ROM drives.
Compaq Deskpro EN Series of Personal Computers
G-1
Termination
1. Every SCSI chain must be terminated at both ends regardless of whether it is an internal SCSI
chain, an external SCSI chain, or a combination internal-external SCSI chain.
2. The PD-CD drive must be terminated by using a SCSI interconnect cable that has a terminating
plug on one of its ends. This drive does not ship with terminating resistors.
3. Compaq SCSI-2 controllers have an automatic terminating device which turns OFF the
terminator when both the external and internal SCSI signal ports connect to SCSI devices.
4. A terminating resistor plug is molded into one end of some internal flat SCSI signal cables. It
may also be a separate electronic device that installs into the SCSI signal port of an external
device, installs into an internal flat SCSI signal cable connector, or installs into the SCSI signal
port of some non-Compaq SCSI-2 controllers.
5. Terminators are generally designated as being active or passive by the voltage limiting method
used. Both types of terminators come in the forms described in 2, 3, and 4 above. The product
documentation usually describes the terminator type.
6. All Compaq SCSI-2 controllers have active terminators. Active terminators more effectively
filter out electronic noise (voltage surges) on the SCSI chain than passive terminators.
7. To ensure the integrity of data transferred faster than 5 megabytes per second, use active
terminators to terminate the SCSI chain.
