Description
Device Configuration
Lists all installed BIOS-controlled storage devices.
When a device is selected, detailed information and options are displayed. The following options
may be presented:
●
Hard Disk: Size, model, firmware version, serial number, connector color.
Translation mode (ATA disks only)
Lets you select the translation mode to be used for the device. This enables the BIOS to
access disks partitioned and formatted on other systems and may be necessary for users of
older versions of UNIX (e.g., SCO UNIX version 3.2). Options are Automatic, Bit-Shift,
LBA Assisted, User, and Off.
Available only when the drive translation mode is set to User, allows you to specify the
parameters (logical cylinders, heads, and sectors per track) used by the BIOS to translate
disk I/O requests (from the operating system or an application) into terms the hard drive can
accept. Logical cylinders may not exceed 1024. The number of heads may not exceed 256.
The number of sectors per track may not exceed 63.
CAUTION: Ordinarily, the translation mode selected automatically by the BIOS should not
be changed. If the selected translation mode is not compatible with the translation mode that
was active when the disk was partitioned and formatted, the data on the disk will be
inaccessible.
●
CD-ROM: Model, firmware version, serial number, connector color (not included for USB CDROM).
●
SSD Life Used
NOTE: Displays for solid-state drives.
●
SMART (ATA disks only)
●
Diskette: Model and firmware version.

Table 3-3 Computer Setup—Storage (continued)
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.

deactivated by BIOS and would indicate that a halt occurred during execution if the alert is
sent to the management console. An operating system alert is deactivated by the operating
system image and would indicate that a hang occurred during its initialization. Default is
enabled.
Recovering the Configuration Settings
This method of recovery requires that you first perform the Save to Removable Media command
with the Computer Setup (F10) Utility before Restore is needed. (See Computer Setup—File
on page 10 in the Computer Setup—File table.)
NOTE: It is recommended that you save any modified computer configuration settings to a USB
flash media device and save the device for possible future use.
To restore the configuration, insert the USB flash media device with the saved configuration and

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.
SATA Hard Drives
39
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.
Hard Drive Capacities
The combination of the file system and the operating system used in the computer determines the
maximum usable size of a drive partition. A drive partition is the largest segment of a drive that may
be properly accessed by the operating system. A single hard drive may therefore be subdivided into a
number of unique drive partitions in order to make use of all of its space.
Because of the differences in the way that drive sizes are calculated, the size reported by the
operating system may differ from that marked on the hard drive or listed in the computer specification.
Drive size calculations by drive manufacturers are bytes to the base 10 while calculations by
Microsoft are bytes to the base 2.

Routine Care 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.
Generating Static
The following table shows that:
●
Different activities generate different amounts of static electricity.
●
Static electricity increases as humidity decreases.

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.
Personal Grounding Methods and Equipment
Use the following equipment to prevent static electricity damage to equipment:
●
Wrist straps are flexible straps with a maximum 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 maximum of one-megohm ± 10% resistance between the operator and ground.

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.
●
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.

on page 44 before following these 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.
●
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.
Cleaning the Monitor
●
Wipe the monitor screen with a clean cloth moistened with water or with a towelette 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 Cleaning the Computer Case on page 44.
Routine Care
45
Cleaning the Mouse
Before cleaning the mouse, ensure that the power to the computer is turned off.

CAUTION: As each subassembly is removed from the computer, it should be placed away from the
work area to prevent damage.
46
Chapter 6 Routine Care and Disassembly Preparation
Cables and Connectors
Most cables used throughout the unit are flat, flexible cables. These cables must be handled with
care to avoid damage. Apply only the tension required to seat or unseat the cables during insertion or
removal from the connector. Handle cables by the connector whenever possible. In all cases, avoid
bending or twisting the cables, and ensure that the cables are routed in such a way that they cannot
be caught or snagged by parts being removed or replaced.
CAUTION: When servicing this computer, ensure that cables are placed in their proper location
during the reassembly process. Improper cable placement can damage the computer.
Hard Drives
Handle hard drives as delicate, precision components, avoiding all physical shock and vibration. This
applies to failed drives as well as replacement spares.
●
If a drive must be mailed, place the drive in a bubble-pack mailer or other suitable protective
packaging and label the package “Fragile: Handle With Care.”
●
Do not remove hard drives from the shipping package for storage. Keep hard drives in their
protective packaging until they are actually mounted in the CPU.
●
Avoid dropping drives from any height onto any surface.
●
If you are inserting or removing a hard drive, turn off the computer. Do not remove a hard drive
while the computer is on or in standby mode.
●
Before handling a drive, ensure that you are discharged of static electricity. While handling a
drive, avoid touching the connector. For more information about preventing electrostatic
damage, refer to Electrostatic Discharge Information on page 41
●
Do not use excessive force when inserting a drive.
●
Avoid exposing a hard drive to liquids, temperature extremes, or products that have magnetic
fields such as monitors or speakers.

●
DIMMs constructed with x8 and x16 DDR devices; DIMMs constructed with x4 SDRAM are not
supported
Memory
55
NOTE:
The system will not operate properly if you install unsupported DIMMs.
Populating DIMM Sockets
Populate the DIMM sockets in the following order: XMM1, XMM3
The system will automatically operate in single channel mode, dual channel mode, or flex mode,
depending on how the DIMMs are installed.
●
The system will operate in single channel mode if the DIMM sockets are populated in one
channel only.
●
The system will operate in a higher-performing dual channel mode if the total memory capacity
of the DIMMs in Channel A is equal to the total memory capacity of the DIMMs in Channel B.
The technology and device width can vary between the channels. If Channel A is populated with
one 1-GB DIMM and Channel B is populated with one 2-GB DIMM, the system will operate in
dual channel mode.
●
The system will operate in flex mode if the total memory capacity of the DIMMs in Channel A is
not equal to the total memory capacity of the DIMMs 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. For optimal speed, the channels
should be balanced so that the largest amount of memory is spread between the two channels.
If one channel will have more memory than the other, the larger amount should be assigned to
Channel A. If you are populating the sockets with one 2-GB DIMM, and one 1-GB DIMM,
Channel A should be populated with the 2-GB DIMM, and Channel B should be populated with
the 1-GB DIMM. With this configuration, 2 GB will run as dual channel and 1 GB will run as
single channel.
●
In any mode, the maximum operational speed is determined by the slowest DIMM in the system.
The system will automatically operate in single channel mode, dual channel mode, or flex mode,
depending on how the DIMMs are installed.
Removing Memory Modules
CAUTION: You must disconnect the power cord and wait approximately 30 seconds for the power
to drain before adding or removing memory modules. Regardless of the power-on state, voltage is
always supplied to the memory modules as long as the computer is plugged into an active AC outlet.
Adding or removing memory modules while voltage is present may cause irreparable damage to the
memory modules or system board.
The memory module sockets have gold-plated metal contacts. When upgrading the memory, it is
important to use memory modules with gold-plated metal contacts to prevent corrosion and/or
oxidation resulting from having incompatible metals in contact with each other.
Static electricity can damage the electronic components of the computer or optional cards. Before
beginning these procedures, ensure that you are discharged of static electricity by briefly touching a
grounded metal object.
When handling a memory module, be careful not to touch any of the contacts. Doing so may damage
the module.

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.
●
Some flat ribbon cables come prefolded. Never change the folds on these cables.
●
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.
When removing the power supply power cable from the P1 connector on the system board, always
follow these steps:
1.
Squeeze on the top of the retaining latch attached to the cable end of the connector (1).
Cable Management
65
2.
Grasp the cable end of the connector and pull it straight up (2).
CAUTION: Always pull the connector - NEVER pull on the cable. Pulling on the cable could
damage the cable and result in a failed power supply.

635802-001
The computer comes with double data rate 3 synchronous dynamic random access memory (DDR3SDRAM) dual inline memory modules (DIMMs).
DDR3-SDRAM DIMMs
The memory sockets on the system board can be populated with up to two DIMMs.
These memory sockets are populated with at least one preinstalled DIMM. To achieve the maximum
memory support, you can populate the system board with up to 8 GB of memory:
For proper system operation, the DDR3-SDRAM DIMMs must be:
●
industry-standard 240-pin
●
unbuffered non-ECC PC3-10600 DDR3-1333 MHz-compliant
●
1.5 volt DDR3-SDRAM DIMMs
The DDR3-SDRAM DIMMs must also:
●
support CAS latency 9 DDR3 1333 MHz (9-9-9 timing)
●
contain the mandatory JEDEC SPD information
In addition, the computer supports:
●
512-Mbit, 1-Gbit, and 2-Gbit non-ECC memory technologies
●
single-sided and double-sided DIMMs
●
DIMMs constructed with x8 and x16 DDR devices; DIMMs constructed with x4 SDRAM are not
supported
NOTE:
The system will not operate properly if you install unsupported DIMMs.
Memory 105
Populating DIMM Sockets
There are two DIMM sockets on the system board, with one socket per channel.
Populate the DIMM sockets in the following order: XMM1, then XMM3.
Figure 8-5 DIMM Socket Locations
Table 8-1 DIMM Socket Locations
Description
Socket Color
Insertion Order
XMM1 socket, Channel A
(populate first)
Black
1
XMM3 socket, Channel B
Black
2
NOTE: A DIMM must occupy the XMM1 socket.
●
The system will operate in single channel mode if the DIMM sockets are populated in one
channel only.
●
The system will operate in a higher-performing dual channel mode if the total memory capacity
of the DIMM in Channel A is equal to the total memory capacity of the DIMM in Channel B. The
technology and device width can vary between the channels. For example, if Channel A is
populated with one 2-GB DIMMs and Channel B is populated with one 2-GB DIMM, the system
will operate in dual channel mode.
●
The system will operate in flex mode if the total memory capacity of the DIMM in Channel A is
not equal to the total memory capacity of the DIMM 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. For optimal speed, the channels
should be balanced so that the largest amount of memory is spread between the two channels.
If one channel will have more memory than the other, the larger amount should be assigned to
Channel A. For example, if you are populating the sockets with one 2-GB DIMM, and one 1-GB
DIMMs, Channel A should be populated with the 2-GB DIMM, and Channel B should be
106 Chapter 8 Removal and Replacement Procedures – Small Form Factor (SFF) Chassis
populated with the 1-GB DIMM. With this configuration, 2 GB will run as dual channel and 1 GB
will run as single channel.
●
In any mode, the maximum operational speed is determined by the slowest DIMM in the system.
The system will automatically operate in single channel mode, dual channel mode, or flex mode,
depending on how the DIMMs are installed.
Removing DIMMs
CAUTION: You must disconnect the power cord and wait approximately 30 seconds for the power
to drain before adding or removing memory modules. Regardless of the power-on state, voltage is
always supplied to the memory modules as long as the computer is plugged into an active AC outlet.
Adding or removing memory modules while voltage is present may cause irreparable damage to the
memory modules or system board.
The memory module sockets have gold-plated metal contacts. When upgrading the memory, it is
important to use memory modules with gold-plated metal contacts to prevent corrosion and/or
oxidation resulting from having incompatible metals in contact with each other.
Static electricity can damage the electronic components of the computer or optional cards. Before
beginning these procedures, ensure that you are discharged of static electricity by briefly touching a
grounded metal object. For more information, refer to Electrostatic Discharge Information on page 41.
When handling a memory module, be careful not to touch any of the contacts. Doing so may damage
the module.

HP PC Hardware Diagnostics
Use the UEFI-based hardware diagnostic solution that HP includes on all products to diagnose
hardware issues. You can use this tool even if the computer will not boot to the operating system.
This tool also works with components not diagnosed in HPSA.
Why run HP PC Hardware Diagnostics
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.

Restoring and recovering in Windows 7 187
●
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.

POST Error Messages
This appendix lists the error codes, error messages, and the various indicator light and audible
sequences that you may encounter during Power-On Self-Test (POST) or computer restart, the
probable source of the problem, and steps you can take to resolve the error condition.
POST Message Disabled suppresses most system messages during POST, such as memory count
and non-error text messages. If a POST error occurs, the screen will display the error message. To
manually switch to the POST Messages Enabled mode during POST, press any key (except F10,
F11, or F12). The default mode is POST Message Disabled.
The speed at which the computer loads the operating system and the extent to which it is tested are
determined by the POST mode selection.
Quick Boot is a fast startup process that does not run all of the system level tests, such as the
memory test. Full Boot runs all of the ROM-based system tests and takes longer to complete.
Full Boot may also be enabled to run every 1 to 30 days on a regularly scheduled basis. To establish
the schedule, reconfigure the computer to the Full Boot Every x Days mode, using Computer Setup.
NOTE:
For more information on Computer Setup, see Computer Setup (F10) Utility on page 8.

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 8 for information on
backing up the CMOS settings.
208 Appendix F Password Security and Resetting CMOS
Resetting the Password Jumper
To disable the power-on or setup password features, or to clear the power-on or setup passwords,
complete the following steps:
1.
Shut down the operating system properly, then turn off the computer and any external devices,
and disconnect the power cord from the power outlet.
2.
With the power cord disconnected, press the power button again to drain the system of any
residual power.
WARNING! To reduce the risk of personal injury from electrical shock and/or hot surfaces, be
sure to disconnect the power cord from the wall outlet, and allow the internal system
components to cool before touching.
CAUTION: When the computer is plugged in, the power supply always has voltage applied to
the system board even when the unit is turned off. Failure to disconnect the power cord can
result in damage to the system.
Static electricity can damage the electronic components of the computer or optional equipment.
Before beginning these procedures, ensure that you are discharged of static electricity by briefly
touching a grounded metal object. See the Safety & Regulatory Information guide for more
information.
3.
