Compaq 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 personal injury from electrical shock and hazardous energy
levels, do not exceed the level of repair specified in these procedures. Because of the
complexity of the individual boards and subassemblies, do not attempt to make repairs at the
component level or to make modifications to any printed wiring board. Improper repairs could
create conditions that are hazardous.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of electric shock or damage to the equipment:
■ If the system has multiple power supplies, disconnect power from the system by
unplugging all power cords from the power supplies.
■ Do not disable the power cord 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.
CAUTION: To properly ventilate your system, you must provide at least 12 inches (30.5 cm) of
clearance at the front and back of the computer.
CAUTION: The computer is designed to be electrically grounded. To ensure proper operation,
plug the AC power cord into a properly grounded AC outlet only.

Installing the Adapter
This chapter describes installation precautions and explains how to install the adapter. It also
describes how to connect the network cable.
WARNING: To avoid the risk of personal injury or damage to the equipment, consult the safety
information and user documentation provided with your equipment before attempting the
installation of the adapter.
Many computers are capable of producing energy levels that are considered hazardous. Users
should not remove enclosures, nor should they bypass the interlocks provided for removal of
these hazardous conditions.
Installation of this adapter should be performed by individuals who are both qualified in the
servicing of computer equipment and trained in the hazards associated with products capable
of producing hazardous energy levels.
NOTE: Before removing the cover of your server, refer to the Compaq documentation for the proper
methods for installing a PCI card and avoiding electric shock hazards.
Electrostatic Discharge Precautions
A discharge of static electricity from a finger or other conductor can damage components on the
adapter. This can make the adapter inoperable. In addition to the following information, see
Appendix B for more precautions.
To prevent electrostatic damage, observe the following precautions:
■
Always properly ground yourself when touching a static-sensitive component or assembly.
■
Avoid hand contact by transporting and storing parts in static-safe containers.
■
Keep electrostatic-sensitive parts in their containers until they arrive at static-free
locations.
■
Place parts on a grounded surface before removing them from their containers.
■
Avoid touching pins, leads or circuitry.
2-2 Compaq NC3120 Fast Ethernet Server Adapter User Guide
Installing the Adapter in a Server
Refer to the documentation provided with your server for the specific steps necessary to safely
install a PCI card in your server.
Figure 2-1. Installing the adapter in a server
1. If the server is not PCI Hot Plug compliant, power down the server and unplug the power
cord.
2. Remove the server cover and the cover bracket from a PCI slot.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of personal injury from hot surfaces, allow the internal system
components to cool before touching them.
CAUTION: If the device is not PCI Hot Plug compliant, power down the device and unplug the
power cord rom the power outlet before removing the device cover. Failure to do so may
damage the adapter or computer.
3. Firmly seat the adapter in a PCI slot and secure the adapter bracket.
4. Replace the server cover and plug in the power cord.

Appendix
B
Electrostatic Discharge
To prevent damage to the system, be aware of the precautions you need to follow when setting
up the system or handling parts. 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.
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 heel straps, toe straps, or boot straps 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, have a Compaq
authorized reseller install the part.
NOTE: For more information on static electricity or assistance with product installation, contact your
Compaq authorized reseller.

RJ-45 Pinouts and Crossover Function
The Ethernet standard also specifies that each segment implement a crossover function to
connect the transmitter of one device to the receiver of a device at the other end, and vice-versa.
The crossover function may be implemented internally at the hub or switch, or externally
through the twisted-pair media.
10/100 Straight-Through Pinouts
If the crossover function is implemented internally, the port is labeled MDI-X (Medium
Dependent Interface–Crossover). When an MDI-X port is connected to an MDI port, the
twisted-pair media should be wired straight-through using the physical pinouts indicated in
Table C-2.
