■ Anti-theft Protection and Lead-sealing
There are three ways to protect your PC from theft:
● With the Kensington Lock device (1) and with a Kensington MicroSaver
● With a chain (lead-seal)
● With a (pad)lock
To prevent unauthorised persons from opening the casing, the casing can be sealed. To do this,
feed the sealing chain through the eye (2) and seal the chain with the lead seal.
You can also attach a padlock to the eye (2) to prevent unauthorised opening of the casing. You
can also use this eye to anchor the casing if necessary.
■ How to Lock the Main Unit of the Personal Computer
From Behind

System Expansion
CAUTION
It may be necessary to update the BIOS when carrying out a system expansion or hardware
upgrade.
When installing components that become very hot, make sure that the maximum permissible
temperatures of the individual components are not exceeded.
The PC must be switched off when installing/removing the system expansions and may not be in
the energy-saving mode.
This chapter describes all the activities required to modify your PC hardware (e.g. installing boards
or drives).
Read the supplied documentation before installing new drives and/or boards.
Refer to the technical manual for the mainboard before making any extensions to the mainboard.
Information about Boards
Take care with the locking mechanisms (catches and centring pins) when you are replacing board or
components on board.
To prevent damage to the board or the components and conductors on it, please take care when you
insert or remove boards. Make sure expansion boards are inserted straightly.
Never use sharp objects (screwdrivers) for leverage.
Boards with electrostatic sensitive devices (ESD) are identifiable by the label
shown.
When you handle boards fitted with ESDs, you must, under all circumstances,
observe the following points:
● You must statically discharge yourself before working with boards (e.g.
by touching a grounded object).
● The equipment and tools you use must be free of static charges.
● Pull out the power plug before inserting or removing boards.
● Always hold boards with ESDs by their edges.
● Never touch pins or conductors on boards fitted with ESDs.

■ Replacing Lithium Battery
In order to permanently save the system information, a lithium battery is installed to provide
the CMOS-memory with a current. A corresponding error message notifies the user when
the charge is too low or the battery is empty. The lithium battery must then be replaced.
CAUTION
Incorrect replacement of the lithium battery may lead to a risk of explosion!
The lithium battery may be replaced only with an identical battery or with a type recommended by
the manufacturer.
Do not throw lithium batteries into the household waste. They must be disposed of in accordance
with local regulations concerning special waste.
Make sure that you insert the battery the right way round. The plus pole must be on the top!
The lithium battery holder exists in different designs that function in the same way.
