Specifications
Electrical Specifications
Any attempt to draw too much current (such as a short circuit across edgeconnector pins, or an accessory board that is not suitable for these PCs), will
cause the overload protection in the power supply to be triggered, and the PC
could fail to boot. To get out of the power supply protection mode, remove
the power cord, wait for 10 seconds, then replace the cord.
The power supply delivers 2A at the V standby level. This extra current is
required by the 100TX hardware layer so it can perform a remote power-on at
reception of a magic frame. An older power supply should not be used as a
replacement.
NOTE
When the PC is turned off with the power button on the front panel, the power
consumption falls below 5 Watts, but is not zero. The special on/off method
used by this PC extends the lifetime of the power supply. To reach zero power
consumption in “off” mode, either unplug the PC from the power outlet or use
a power block with a switch. If the PC is turned off, the time settings are
maintained by the battery indefinitely (until the battery runs out of power).

2 System Features
Main Memory
Main Memory
There are two 184-pin RIMM slots on the system board for installing main
memory: RIMM slots 1 and 2. All HP Vectra VL600 PC models are supplied
with one memory module (128 MB Rambus DRAM) in RIMM slot 1, the slot
nearest the processor. Only HP memory modules are supported.
If only one RDRAM module is used, it must be installed in the slot nearest the
processor. Any slot not filled with an RDRAM module must contain a
continuity module. Memory upgrades are available in single modules of 128
MB, 256 MB or 512MB modules (when these become available). Replacement
of the supplied memory module may be necessary to obtain the 1024 MB
maximum memory.
Memory Types Supported
Memory detection: RDRAM (Rambus DRAM) support only, no SDRAM or
EDO support.
•
Minimum memory configuration supported is 64MB.
•
Maximum memory supported by the system is 1GB using 256Mbit RDRAM
technology. This will be available from early 2000.
•
Continuity RIMM modules must be installed in slots without RIMMs.
•
The BIOS supports PC600, PC700 and PC800 RIMMs, and a mixture of
these RIMMs but it will program the Rambus frequency to the lowest
frequency if a mixture is detected.
RDRAM Modules
Direct RDRAM components exist in three speeds. These components are
referred to as:
•
PC600 RDRAM
•
PC700 RDRAM
•
PC800 RDRAM.
The PCxxx nomenclature provides consistency with the current PC100
SDRAM naming. The numbers 600, 700 and 800 provide the speed indication
for the module. Speed in this case relates to Mega data transfers per second
(Mt/s), which is twice the clock frequency in MHz.
19
2 System Features
Main Memory
Example: PC700 RDRAM, the number 700 is not exactly the Mt/s capability if
the part, actual Mt/s rate is about 711 Mt/s.

BIOS Summary
Security
Sub-menus are presented for changing the characteristics and values of the
System Administrator Password, User Password, Hardware Protection and
Boot Device Security, the amount of protection against the system’s drives
and network connections, and the amount of protection against being able to
boot from the system’s drives and network connections. The Security Menu
contains the following sub-menus:
• User Password. This password can only be set when an administrator
password has been set. The User Password prevents unauthorized use of
the computer, protects stored data.
• Administrator Password. This password prevents unauthorized access to
the computer’s configuration. It can also be used to start the computer.
• Hardware protection. The following devices can be unlocked/locked:
Integrated Flexible Disk Controller, Integrated IDE Controller, and
Integrated Data Communications Ports.
• Boot Devices Security. Select which devices are to be used for booting the
system. The option Disabled prevents unauthorized use of a device to start
the computer.
Boot Menu
Boot Device Priority allows you to select the order of the devices from which
the BIOS attempts to boot the operating system. During POST, if the BIOS is
unsuccessful at booting from one device, it will then try the next one on the
list until an operating system is found.
Hard Disk Drives allows you to choose the hard drive you want to boot from.
Removable Devices allows you to choose which drive letters you want to
assign to removable devices.
The QuickBoot Mode option allows the system to skip certain tests while
booting. This decreases the time needed to boot the system.

HP I/O Port Map (I/O Addresses Used by the System)
Peripheral devices, accessory devices and system controllers are accessed via
the system I/O space, which is not located in system memory space. The 64
KB of addressable I/O space comprises 8-bit and 16-bit registers (called
I/O ports) located in the various system components. When installing an
accessory board, ensure that the I/O address space selected is in the free area
of the space reserved for accessory boards (100h to 3FFh).

PCI Interrupt Request Lines
PCI devices generate interrupt requests using up to four PCI interrupt
request lines (INTA#, INTB#, INTC#, and INTD#). PCI interrupts can be
shared; several devices can use the same interrupt. However, optimal system
performance is reached when minimizing the sharing of interrupts.

4 BIOS Overview
Order in Which the POST Tests are Performed
Order in Which the POST Tests are Performed
Each time the system is powered on, or a reset is performed, the POST is
executed. The POST process verifies the basic functionality of the system
components and initializes certain system parameters.
The POST starts by displaying a graphic screen of the Hewlett-Packard logo
when the PC is started.
Devices, such as memory and newly installed hard disks, are configured
automatically. The user is not requested to confirm the change. Newly
removed hard disks are detected, and the user is prompted to confirm the
new configuration by pressing
. Note, though, that the POST does not
detect when a hard disk drive has been otherwise changed.
During the POST, the BIOS and other ROM data is copied into high-speed
shadow RAM. The shadow RAM is addressed at the same physical location as
the original ROM in a manner which is completely transparent to applications.
It therefore appears to behave as very fast ROM. This technique provides
faster access to the system BIOS firmware.
The following table lists the POST checkpoint codes written at the start of
each test.
