Does this sound familiar? You're asked to innovate,
improve security and business processes, and lower
costs. Yet, studies show the cost of technology
support and maintenance alone can seize as much
as 89% of a typical enterprise IT budget. How can
your department meet management's goalsrealizing maximum security, efficiency and
profitability by leveraging technology-when most of
your time and money is spent handling:
• Manual inventories
• Undiscoverable assets
• Deskside visits
• Inability to manage systems that are powered
down or where OS is inoperable
• Manual security patches
• Lack of configuration compliance
There is a better way to manage your desktops, to
reduce the time and money spent on the “day-to­
day” and get you spending more time on the “big
picture.” It starts with the HP Compaq dc7700p
equipped with Intel® vProTM Technology.

HP Compaq dc7700p: Built-in security,
performance and IT productivity
Getting a handle on your IT enterprise management costs starts with the PC
itself. The HP Compaq dc7700p delivers results that will impress even the most
demanding IT managers, combining built-in manageability, stability and
security with the performance and flexibility necessary to meet business
demands and reduce IT complexity.
HP ProtectTools Security Suite
Provides an integrated console for easy setup and management of a wide
range of security features including passwords, embedded security, and Smart
Card keyboards.
HP Backup & Recovery Manager
Create factory image CDs and easily schedule data backups to network
drives, second hard drives, and optical media. Enables a quick recovery for
complete systems.
Real time data backup (RAID 1) capability
Factory-installed solution automatically writes data simultaneously to two hard
drives to ensure it is protected.
Support for new energy efficiency standards
80 PLUS power supplies and Energy Star 4.0 models provide more efficient
power conversion and reduced power consumption, helping save energy costs
and supporting more PCs per branch circuit.
80 PLUS: this efficient power supply gives you lower energy costs and quieter,
more productive work spaces by resourcefully converting AC power to DC
power and regulating fan activity at the BIOS level.
Energy Star 4.0: saves energy and complies to new Energy Star specifications
that place strict regulation on idle wattage time.

Fast, accurate PC inventory
Even when PC is powered down or the OS is inoperable
Powered-down PCs hide from typical software-based inventory solutions, which
are dependent on the PC being powered up and the OS being operational.
Reduce time and money spent on manual
inventories to account for down or crashed
PCs not recognized by your software-based
management solution.
HP Compaq dc7700p desktops equipped with Intel vPro Technology rely on a
secure, hardware-based, out-of-band (OOB) communications channel that is
always available, enabling third-party software to poll systems for information
even if a PC is powered off, its OS is down or its management agents are
• Secure remote power-up lets authorized staff power up remote PCs, perform
any necessary tasks, and remotely power down again.
• PC inventory is complete within minutes instead of days, saving time and
ensuring compliance with government regulations.
• Inventory is more accurate than completely software-based solutions,
counting all machines connected to the network, regardless of power or
OS state.

Manage hardware and software assets
Tracking software licenses and equipment status across multiple departments is
a challenge. Turn that challenge into an opportunity to better budget for
upgrades and save money on license fees with the HP Compaq dc7700p.
Third-party software stores hardware and
software asset information in tamper-resistant,
nonvolatile memory where it can be accessed
by authorized staff from the IT management
The same “always-available” hardware-based, OOB communications channel
that allows for quick PC inventory also helps enable:
• Time savings by remotely polling all network-connected HP Compaq
dc7700p Business Desktops for unique hardware IDs and software
versions, regardless of power or OS state.
• Automatic updates to ensure PC compliance with policy-prescribed
• Fewer deskside visits to identify failed hardware parts that need to
be replaced.
• Potential cost savings on license fees with accurate software inventories.
• Improvements in life-cycle management with better budgeting and planning
tools for equipment upgrades.

Remote diagnostics and repair
The HP Compaq dc7700p with built-in Intel vPro Technology sends a
policy-based alert to the IT Management Console.
Use the HP Compaq dc7700p
with Intel vPro Technology to:
• Significantly reduce on-site service calls for
problem resolution
Before the user can even make that help desk call, the IT department is
working on the problem using remote hardware-based diagnostic and repair
capabilities including:
• Remote Boot: Integrated drive electronics redirect (IDE-R), allows authorized
technicians to change the PC's boot device to a standard image.
• Console Redirection: Provided through serial over LAN (SOL), where
technician can note problems with the boot process as the BIOS, OS and
drivers attempt to load.
• Issue Identification and Resolution: Replacement drivers or missing .DLL files
can be pushed down-the-wire to bring the PC back into a managed state.
• System Re-imaging: Quickly restore PCs by pushing existing images
out remotely.
• Remotely repair PCs even if user OS and
applications are infected
• Increase end-user productivity through less
PC downtime
• Free up IT resources for additional projects

Proactive security updates
HP Compaq dc7700p Business Desktops make deploying security updates
and patches easier, faster and more secure than ever with built-in Intel vPro
technology that allows encrypted, remote power-on and update capabilities.
Use the HP Compaq dc7700p
with Intel vPro Technology to:
• Reduce vulnerability by reducing time
required to deploy patches
• Shift work to off-hours when it won't
interfere with users
• Increase automation and speed of updates
• Improve service efficiency and quality
The secure OOB communications channel lets third-party applications
check the desktop's software version information, determine if anything
needs updating, and make appropriate updates and patches-regardless of
the PC power- or operating-system state. And your peace-of-mind is
safeguarded because:
• Secure, remote power-up lets IT turn on PCs from the IT console, so updates
can even be pushed to devices that were originally powered off at the start
of the maintenance cycle.
• Remote control is not allowed without user name and password from
IT administrator.
• Password communication and commands can be encrypted between the
client and console.
• Software version information is stored in tamper-resistant, non-volatile
memory, always accessible to third-party management and security
Specialized Design
Like all HP desktop solutions, the HP Compaq dc7700p is
created from the inside-out with quality features and ingenious
design components befitting today’s progressive, competitive
business environment.
Tested for quality
HP desktop platforms undergo on average more than 130,000
hours of rigorous testing. Multiple engineering teams conduct
various types of testing throughout the product development cycle
and throughout the product lifecycle. This ensures HP Business PCs
will work efficiently while making lifecycle planning and
budgeting simple, maintaining consistent work environments and
keeping support costs to a minimum.
Optional Dual Display Capability
Maximize screen real estate by using a multi-monitor configuration to extend
your screen desktop across both monitors, or display multiple programs on
