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.
Grounding Methods
There are several methods for grounding. 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 snug 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, contact an HP authorized
dealer, reseller, or service provider.
NOTE: For more information on static electricity, contact an HP authorized dealer, reseller, or service
provider.

Routine Care and Shipping Preparation
Computer Operating Guidelines and Routine Care
Follow these guidelines to properly set up and care for the computer and monitor:
50
●
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.
●
Never operate the computer with the access panel or any of the expansion card slot covers
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.
●
Turn off the computer 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 all vented sides of the computer. Lint, dust, and other
foreign matter can block the vents and limit the airflow.
