shelves are available to install flexible disk drives, CD-ROM drives, or
tape drives.
Your PC has the following cables and connectors on the system board
which may be used by mass storage devices:
NOTE
•
An Enhanced IDE (Integrated Drive Electronics) hard disk drive
cable. This supports up to two IDE hard disk drives, one of which is
already connected. On the system board, this cable’s connector is
labeled “Primary IDE”.
•
A second Enhanced IDE drive cable with two connectors. If you
install a CD-ROM drive, or a third hard disk drive, or both, connect it
or them to this cable. On the system board, this cable’s connector is
labeled “Secondary IDE”.
•
A flexible disk drive cable. This supports up to two flexible disk
drives, one of which is already connected.
You can install a non-IDE mass storage device, but this requires an
accessory board and driver software. Contact your authorized reseller
for information.

Internal Connectors
If you add a flexible disk drive, hard disk drive, CD-ROM drive, or tape
drive, you need to connect it to power and data cables. The data cables
are shown below:

for CD-ROM or Hard
Disk drive
There are two different cables for IDE drives:
•
The first cable is attached to the connector marked “Primary IDE” on
the system board connector, and has two connectors on the cable.
The first connector must be connected to the bootable (master)
hard disk drive. The second (or slave) connector is for a secondary
hard disk drive.
•
The second cable is attached to the connector marked “Secondary
IDE” on the system board, and has two connectors on the cable. The
connectors can be used for either CD-ROM drives or hard disk
drives.
If you install a hard disk drive and connect it to the same cable to which
the CD-ROM drive is connected, the hard disk drive must be connected
to the middle connector, not the end connector. If you have a CD-ROM
drive currently connected to the middle connector, you must reconnect
the CD-ROM drive to the end connector of the cable, and then attach
the new hard disk drive to the middle connector.

When connecting hard disk drives, note that if the drives are connected
to the same data cable, and the drives operate in different modes (or
speeds), the slower speed will be used. To avoid possible degradation of
disk performance, it is recommended that, whenever possible, hard disk
drives are placed on different cables.
There are two different types of connectors—these are shown below.
Power Cables for
Hard Disk Drives,
Tape Drives, and
CD-ROM Drives

Some of the power connectors will already be connected to devices. If
you install a device that requires a different connector, the connector
converter should be supplied with the device.

Installing Accessory Boards
The PC has six accessory board slots with seven connector sockets.
These slots allow you to install upgrade boards as follows:
Slot 1 (innermost) can be used for a 16-bit ISA or a 32-bit PCI board
(26cm/10.2-inch maximum length)
• Slots 2 and 3 can be used for 32-bit PCI boards
• Slot 4 can be used for a full-length 16-bit ISA or a 32-bit PCI board
• Slots 5 and 6 can be used for full-length 16-bit ISA boards.
•
CAUTION
Static electricity can damage electronic components. Turn all
equipment off. Don’t let your clothes touch the accessory.
To equalize the static electricity, rest the accessory bag on top of the
computer while you are removing the accessory from the bag. Handle
the accessory as little as possible and with care.
Configuring Accessory Boards with Plug and Play
Plug and Play is an industry standard for automatically configuring
your PC's hardware resources and the accessory boards installed in it.
If your operating system supports Plug and Play, your PC has
configurable support for Plug and Play in the BIOS.
All PCI accessory boards are Plug and Play, although not all ISA boards
are. Check the accessory board’s documentation if you are unsure.
When you start your PC after installing an accessory board, the Plug
and Play BIOS automatically detects which hardware resources (IRQs,
DMAs, memory ranges, and I/O addresses) are used by the systembased components.
Configuring non-Plug and Play ISA Accessory Boards
If you install an ISA accessory board that is not Plug and Play you will
need to configure the board before your PC can use it.
Refer to the documentation supplied with the operating system for
details on your operating system’s capabilities and restrictions
concerning how to configure non-Plug and Play accessory boards.

No Sound When
Running Any
Applications
First, check that the output volume is not set to zero. Use the volume
control on the front panel. Make sure the headphones are not
connected directly to the CD-ROM drive (see the connection
information in chapter 1).
Remember also that plugging the headphones into the front panel cuts
out sound to the internal speaker and to external speakers connected
to the audio Stereo Out jack.
When your PC starts up, the integrated audio interface may have no
IRQ or DMA settings. These settings are initialized by software upon
startup. Your system files may not have the necessary entries. Run the
Setup program to configure the IRQ and DMA settings.
Absence of sound can also be caused by a hardware conflict. Hardware
conflicts occur when two or more peripheral devices compete for the
same signal lines or channels. Conflicts between your audio interface

The Volume is Too Low The computer has two output jacks, Stereo Out on the rear of the
computer and a headphones jack on the front panel, which provide the
same output signal. This is a low-distortion output that cannot drive
(without amplification) low-impedance devices such as speakers. If you
plug devices with a low-impedance (less than 32 ohms) into the Stereo
Out jack or the headphones jack, the volume will be low.

Humming Noise
If the power grounding of your audio components is inadequate, a
humming noise may be generated. This may happen if your PC is
connected to a hifi system. Plug all devices into adjacent power outlets
(outlets within 5 cm / 2 inches of each other), or use line filters.
Occasional Crackles
When Playing Back
Sounds
These crackles are usually the result of your PC being unable to transfer
audio samples within the required time. A solution is to use a lower
sampling rate. Recording and playing back at 22 kHz is less demanding
upon system resources than recording audio at 44 kHz.
The PC Hangs While
Recording
Uncompressed digital audio can eventually fill your hard disk. For
example, one minute of stereo sound recorded at a resolution of 44 kHz
will occupy about 10.5 MB. Before recording, check that there is enough
free space on your hard disk.
Data compression can reduce the space required. The A-law and µ-law
hardware compression used by the audio interface enables the
sampling of sound at a resolution of 16-bits, but it generates the same
quantity of data as an 8-bit sample.

HP Hardware Warranty
Important: This is your hardware product warranty statement. Read it carefully.
Warranty terms may be different in your country. If so, your Authorized HP Dealer or
Hewlett-Packard Sales and Service Office can give you details.
Three Year Limited Hardware Warranty
Hewlett-Packard (HP) warrants this hardware product against defects in materials and workmanship for a
period of three years from receipt by the original end-user purchaser.
The three year warranty includes on-site service during the first year of use, and return service provided by an
HP Service Center or a participating Authorized HP Personal Computer Dealer Repair Center, during the second
and third years of use.
If HP receives notice of above defined defects during the warranty period, HP will either, at its option, repair or
replace products which prove to be defective.
Should HP be unable to repair or replace the product within a reasonable amount of time, the customer’s
alternate exclusive remedy shall be a refund of the purchase price upon return of the product.
Limitation of Warranty
The above warranty shall not apply to defects resulting from: misuse; unauthorized modification; operation or
storage outside the environmental specifications for the product; in-transit damage; improper maintenance; or
defects resulting from use of non-HP software, accessories, media, supplies, consumables, or such items not
designed for use with the product.
HP makes no other express warranty, whether written or oral, with respect to this product.
Any implied warranty of merchantability or fitness is limited to the three-year duration of this written warranty.
Some states or provinces do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation
or exclusion may not apply to you.
This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state,
or province to province.
Limitation of Liability and Remedies
The remedies provided above are the customer’s sole and exclusive remedies.
In no event shall HP be liable for any direct, indirect, special, incidental, or consequential damages, whether
based on warranty, contract, tort, or any other legal theory.
The foregoing limitation of liability shall not apply in the event that any HP product sold hereunder is
determined by a court of competent jurisdiction to be defective and to have directly caused bodily injury, death,
or property damage; provided, that in no event shall HP’s liability for property damage exceed the greater of
$50,000 or the purchase price of the specific product that caused such damage.
Some states or provinces do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential
damages–including lost profit–so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
Obtaining On-Site Warranty Service
To obtain on-site warranty service, the customer must contact an HP Sales and Service Office (in the US, call
the HP Customer Support Center at (303) 635-1000) or a participating Authorized HP Personal Computer
Dealer Repair Center and arrange for on-site repair of the product. The customer must be prepared to supply
proof of the purchase date.
This warranty is extended worldwide to products purchased from HP or an Authorized HP Personal Computer
Dealer which are reshipped by the original purchaser either for use by the original purchaser or provided as an
incidental part of systems integrated by the original purchaser. Service is provided in the same manner as if the
product was purchased in the country of use and can only be provided in countries where the product is
designed to operate. If the product is not normally sold by HP in the country of use, it must be returned to the
country of purchase for service.
The system processor unit, keyboard, mouse, and Hewlett-Packard accessories inside the system processor
unit–such as video adapters, mass storage devices, and interface controllers–are covered by this warranty.
français
français81
Customer-replaceable components–such as the keyboard or mouse–may be serviced through expedited part
shipment. In this event, HP will prepay shipping charges, duty, and taxes; provide telephone assistance on
replacement of the component; and pay shipping charges, duty, and taxes for any part that HP asks to be
returned.
HP products external to the system processor unit–such as external storage subsystems, displays, printers, and
other peripherals–are covered by the applicable warranties for those products; HP software is covered by the
HP Software Product Limited Warranty.
On-site visits caused by non-Hewlett-Packard products–whether internal or external to the system processor
unit–are subject to standard per-incident travel and labor charges.
On-site service for this product is restricted or unavailable in certain locations. In HP Excluded Travel
Areas–areas where geographical obstacles, undeveloped roads, or unsuitable public transportation prohibit
routine travel–service is provided on a negotiated basis at extra charge.
Response time for HP on-site service in an HP Service Travel Area is normally next business day (excluding HP
holidays) for HP Travel Zones 1-3 (generally 100 miles or 160 Km from the HP office). Response time is second
business day for Zones 4 and 5 (200 miles, 320 Km); third business day for Zone 6 (300 miles, 480 Km); and
negotiated beyond Zone 6. Worldwide Customer Support Travel information is available from any HP Sales and
Service Office.
Travel restrictions and response time for dealer or distributor service are defined by the participating dealer or
distributor.
Service contracts which provide after-hour or weekend coverage, faster response time, or service in an
Excluded Travel Area are often available from HP, an authorized dealer, or authorized distributor at additional
charge.
Customer Responsibilities
The customer may be required to run HP-supplied diagnostic programs before an on-site visit or replacement
part will be dispatched.
The customer is responsible for the security of its proprietary and confidential information and for maintaining a
procedure external to the products for reconstruction of lost or altered files, data, or programs.
For on-site service, the customer must provide: access to the product; adequate working space and facilities
within a reasonable distance of the product; access to and use of all information and facilities determined
necessary by HP to service the product; and operating supplies and consumables such as the customer would
use during normal operation.
When service is being performed on-site, a representative of the customer must be present at all times. The
customer must state if the product is being used in an environment which poses a potential health hazard to
repair personnel; HP or the servicing dealer may require that the product be maintained by customer personnel
under direct HP or dealer supervision.
Obtaining Return Warranty Service
When return warranty service applies, the product must be returned to a service facility designated by HP.
Customer must enclose a copy of a document proving date of purchase.
The customer shall prepay shipping charges (and shall pay all duty and taxes) for products returned to HP for
warranty service. HP shall pay for return of products to the customer except for products returned to the
customer from another country.
HP products may contain remanufactured parts equivalent to new in performance or may have been subject to
incidental use.
