General Terms

This HP Hardware Limited Warranty gives you, the customer, express limited warranty rights from Hewlett-Packard, the manufacturer. Please refer to HP’s Web site for an extensive description of your limited warranty entitlements. In addition, you may also have other legal rights under applicable local law or special written agreement with HP.

HP MAKES NO OTHER EXPRESS WARRANTY OR CONDITION, WHETHER WRITTEN

OR ORAL, AND HP EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS NOT

STATED IN THIS LIMITED WARRANTY. TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED BY THE LOCAL LAW

OF JURISDICTIONS OUTSIDE THE UNITED STATES, HP DISCLAIMS ALL IMPLIED

WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF

MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. FOR ALL

TRANSACTIONS OCCURRING IN THE UNITED STATES, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OR

CONDITION OF MERCHANTABILITY, SATISFACTORY QUALITY, OR FITNESS FOR A

PARTICULAR PURPOSE IS LIMITED TO THE DURATION OF THE EXPRESS WARRANTY SET

FORTH ABOVE. SOME STATES OR COUNTRIES/REGIONS DO NOT ALLOW A

LIMITATION ON HOW LONG AN IMPLIED WARRANTY LASTS OR THE EXCLUSION OR

LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES FOR CONSUMER

PRODUCTS. IN SUCH STATES OR COUNTRIES/REGIONS, SOME EXCLUSIONS OR

LIMITATIONS OF THIS LIMITED WARRANTY MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

THE LIMITED WARRANTY TERMS CONTAINED IN THIS STATEMENT, EXCEPT TO THE

EXTENT LAWFULLY PERMITTED, DO NOT EXCLUDE, RESTRICT, OR MODIFY BUT ARE IN

ADDITION TO THE MANDATORY STATUTORY RIGHTS APPLICABLE TO THE SALE OF

THIS PRODUCT TO YOU.

This Limited Warranty is applicable in all countries/regions and may be enforced in any country/region where HP or its authorized service providers offer warranty service for the same product model number subject to the terms and conditions set forth in this Limited

Warranty. This HP Limited Warranty is subject to all applicable laws and regulations, including US and other national export and import laws and regulations.

Under the HP Global Limited Warranty program, products purchased in one country/region may be transferred to another country/region, where HP or its authorized service providers offer warranty service for the same product model number, without voiding the warranty. Warranty terms, service availability, and service response times may vary from country/region to country/region. Standard warranty service response time is subject to change due to local parts availability. If so, your HP authorized service provider can provide you with details.

HP is not responsible for any tariffs or duties that may be incurred in transferring the products. Transfer of the products may be covered by export controls issued by the United

States or other governments.

This Limited Warranty applies only to HP-branded and Compaq-branded hardware products (collectively referred to in this Limited Warranty as “HP Hardware Products”) sold by or leased from Hewlett-Packard Company, its worldwide subsidiaries, affiliates, authorized resellers, or country/region distributors (collectively referred to in this Limited

Warranty as “HP”) with this Limited Warranty. The term “HP Hardware Product” is limited to the hardware components and required firmware. The term “HP Hardware Product”

DOES NOT include any software applications or programs; non-HP products or non-HP branded peripherals. All non-HP products or non-HP branded peripherals external to the

HP Hardware Product—such as external storage subsystems, displays, printers, and other peripherals—are provided “AS IS” without HP warranty. However, non-HP manufacturers and suppliers, or publishers may provide their own warranties directly to you.

HP warrants that the HP Hardware Products that you have purchased or leased from HP are free from defects in materials or workmanship under normal use during the Limited

Warranty Period. The Limited Warranty Period starts on the date of purchase or lease from

HP or from the date HP completes installation. Your dated sales or delivery receipt, showing the date of purchase or lease of the product, is your proof of the purchase or lease date. You may be required to provide proof of purchase or lease as a condition of receiving warranty service. You are entitled to hardware warranty service according to the terms and conditions of this document if a repair to your HP Hardware Product is required within the Limited Warranty Period.

Unless otherwise stated, and to the extent permitted by local law, new HP Hardware

Products may be manufactured using new materials or new and used materials equivalent to new in performance and reliability. HP may repair or replace HP Hardware Products

(a) with new or previously used products or parts equivalent to new in performance and reliability or (b) with equivalent products to an original product that has been discontinued. Replacement parts are warranted to be free from defects in material or workmanship for ninety (90) days or, for the remainder of the Limited Warranty Period of the HP Hardware Product they are replacing or in which they are installed, whichever is longer.

HP will, at its discretion, repair or replace any component or hardware product that manifests a defect in materials or workmanship during the Limited Warranty Period. All component parts or hardware products removed under this Limited Warranty become the property of HP. In the unlikely event that your HP Hardware Product has recurring failures,

HP, at its sole discretion, may elect to provide you with (a) a replacement unit of HP’s choosing that is the same or equivalent to your HP Hardware Product in performance or

(b) to give you a refund of your purchase price or lease payments (less interest) instead of a replacement. This is your exclusive remedy for defective products.

Exclusions

HP does not warrant that the operation of this product will be uninterrupted or error-free.

HP is not responsible for damage that occurs as a result of your failure to follow the instructions intended for the HP Hardware Product.

This Limited Warranty does not apply to expendable or consumable parts and does not extend to any product from which the serial number has been removed or that has been damaged or rendered defective (a) as a result of accident, misuse, abuse, contamination,

3

improper or inadequate maintenance or calibration, or other external causes;

(b) by operation outside the usage parameters stated in the user documentation that shipped with the product; (c) by software, interfacing, parts, or supplies not supplied by

HP; (d) by improper site preparation or maintenance; (e) by virus infection; (f) from loss or damage in transit; or (g) by modification or service by anyone other than (i) HP, (ii) an HP authorized service provider, or (iii) your own installation of end-user-replaceable HP or

HP-approved parts if available for your product in the servicing country/region.

YOU SHOULD MAKE PERIODIC BACKUP COPIES OF THE DATA STORED ON

YOUR HARD DRIVE OR OTHER STORAGE DEVICES AS A PRECAUTION

AGAINST POSSIBLE FAILURES, ALTERATION, OR LOSS OF THE DATA. BEFORE

RETURNING ANY UNIT FOR SERVICE, BE SURE TO BACK UP DATA AND

REMOVE ANY CONFIDENTIAL, PROPRIETARY, OR PERSONAL INFORMATION.

HP IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR DAMAGE TO OR LOSS OF ANY PROGRAMS,

DATA, OR REMOVABLE STORAGE MEDIA. HP IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE

RESTORATION OR REINSTALLATION OF ANY PROGRAMS OR DATA OTHER

THAN SOFTWARE INSTALLED BY HP WHEN THE PRODUCT IS

MANUFACTURED. UNITS SENT IN FOR SERVICE MAY HAVE THE DATA

ERASED FROM THE HARD DRIVE AND THE PROGRAMS RESTORED TO THEIR

ORIGINAL STATE.

Exclusive Remedy

TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED BY APPLICABLE LOCAL LAW, THESE TERMS AND

CONDITIONS CONSTITUTE THE COMPLETE AND EXCLUSIVE WARRANTY AGREEMENT

BETWEEN YOU AND HP REGARDING THE HP HARDWARE PRODUCT YOU HAVE

PURCHASED OR LEASED. THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS SUPERSEDE ANY PRIOR

AGREEMENTS OR REPRESENTATIONS—INCLUDING REPRESENTATIONS MADE IN HP

SALES LITERATURE OR ADVICE GIVEN TO YOU BY HP OR AN AGENT OR EMPLOYEE

OF HP—THAT MAY HAVE BEEN MADE IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR PURCHASE OR

LEASE OF THE HP HARDWARE PRODUCT. No change to the conditions of this Limited

Warranty is valid unless it is made in writing and signed by an authorized representative of HP.

Limitation of Liability

IF YOUR HP HARDWARE PRODUCT FAILS TO WORK AS WARRANTED ABOVE, HP’S

MAXIMUM LIABILITY UNDER THIS LIMITED WARRANTY IS EXPRESSLY LIMITED TO THE

LESSER OF THE PRICE YOU HAVE PAID FOR THE PRODUCT OR THE COST OF REPAIR

OR REPLACEMENT OF ANY HARDWARE COMPONENTS THAT MALFUNCTION IN

CONDITIONS OF NORMAL USE.

EXCEPT AS INDICATED ABOVE, IN NO EVENT WILL HP BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES

CAUSED BY THE PRODUCT OR THE FAILURE OF THE PRODUCT TO PERFORM,

INCLUDING ANY LOST PROFITS OR SAVINGS OR SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR

CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES. HP IS NOT LIABLE FOR ANY CLAIM MADE BY A THIRD

PARTY OR MADE BY YOU FOR A THIRD PARTY.

THIS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY APPLIES WHETHER DAMAGES ARE SOUGHT, OR A

CLAIM MADE, UNDER THIS LIMITED WARRANTY OR AS A TORT CLAIM (INCLUDING

NEGLIGENCE AND STRICT PRODUCT LIABILITY), A CONTRACT CLAIM, OR ANY

4

OTHER CLAIM. THIS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY CANNOT BE WAIVED OR AMENDED BY

ANY PERSON. THIS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY WILL BE EFFECTIVE EVEN IF YOU HAVE

ADVISED HP OR AN AUTHORIZED REPRESENTATIVE OF HP OF THE POSSIBILITY OF

ANY SUCH DAMAGES. THIS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY, HOWEVER, WILL NOT APPLY

TO CLAIMS FOR PERSONAL INJURY.

THIS LIMITED WARRANTY GIVES YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS. YOU MAY ALSO HAVE

OTHER RIGHTS THAT MAY VARY FROM STATE TO STATE OR FROM COUNTRY/REGION

TO COUNTRY/REGION. YOU ARE ADVISED TO CONSULT APPLICABLE STATE OR

COUNTRY/REGION LAWS FOR A FULL DETERMINATION OF YOUR RIGHTS.

Limited Warranty Period

The Limited Warranty Period for an HP Hardware Product is a specified, fixed period commencing on the date of purchase. The date on your sales receipt is the date of purchase unless HP or your reseller informs you otherwise in writing.

Types of Warranty Service

To enable HP to provide the best possible support and service during the Limited Warranty

Period, you may be directed by HP to verify configurations, load most recent firmware, install software patches, run HP diagnostics tests, or use HP remote support solutions where applicable.

HP strongly encourages you to accept the use of or to employ available support technologies provided by HP. If you choose not to deploy available remote support capabilities, you may incur additional costs due to increased support resource requirements. Listed below are the types of warranty support service that may be applicable to the HP Hardware Product you have purchased.

Customer Self Repair Warranty Service

In countries/regions where it is available, your HP Limited Warranty may include a customer self repair warranty service. If applicable, HP will determine in its sole discretion that customer self repair is the appropriate method of warranty service. If so, HP will ship approved replacement parts directly to you to fulfill your HP Hardware Product warranty service. This will save considerable repair time. After you contact the HP Technical

Support Center and the fault diagnosis identifies that the problem can be fixed using one of these parts, a replaceable part can be sent directly to you. Once the part arrives, replace the defective part pursuant to the provided instructions and documentation. If further assistance is required, call the HP Technical Support Center, and a technician will assist you over the phone. In cases where the replacement part must be returned to

HP, you must ship the defective part back to HP within a defined period of time, normally thirty (30) days. The defective part must be returned with the associated documentation in the provided shipping material. Failure to return the defective product may result in HP billing you for the replacement. With a customer self repair, HP will pay all shipping and part return costs and determine the courier/carrier to be used. If customer self repair applies to you, please refer to your specific HP Hardware Product announcement. You can also obtain information on this warranty service on the HP Web site at:

http://www.hp.com/support

5

Pickup and Return Warranty Service

Your HP Limited Warranty may include a pickup and return warranty service. Under the terms of pickup and return service, HP will pick up the defective unit from your location, repair it, and return it back to your location. HP will incur all repair, logistics, and insurance costs in this process.

Carry-in Warranty Service

Under the terms of carry-in service, you will be required to deliver your HP Hardware

Product to an authorized service location for warranty repair. You must prepay any shipping charges, taxes, or duties associated with transportation of the product to and from the service location. In addition, you are responsible for insuring any product shipped or returned to an authorized service location and assume risk of loss during shipping.

In-Home Warranty Service

Your HP Limited Warranty service may include on-site labor support to repair your hardware. HP provides on-site service during standard office hours. Standard office hours are typically 8:00am to 5:00pm, Monday through Friday, but may vary with local business practices. If your location is outside the customary service zone (typically

30 mi/50 km), response times may be longer or there may be additional charges. To locate the nearest HP authorized service provider refer to the HP Web site at:

http://www.hp.com/support

HP may, at its sole discretion, determine if on-site warranty service is required. For example, in many cases, the defect can be fixed by the use of a Customer Self Repair

(CSR) part that you are required to replace yourself based on instructions and documentation provided by HP. You are also required to cooperate with HP in attempting to resolve the problem over the telephone. This may involve performing routine diagnostic procedures, installing software updates or patches, removing third-party options, and/or substituting options. In order to receive on-site support, you must (a) have a representative present when HP provides warranty services at your site; (b) notify HP if products are being used in an environment that poses a potential health or safety hazard to

HP employees or subcontractors; (c) subject to its reasonable security requirements, provide HP with sufficient, free, and safe access to and use of all facilities, information, and systems determined necessary by HP to provide timely support; (d) ensure that all manufacturer’s labels (such as serial numbers) are in place, accessible, and legible;

(e) maintain an environment consistent with product specifications and supported configurations.

If you require an HP representative to handle all component replacements, support uplift contracts are available at additional cost.

Service Upgrades

HP has a range of additional support and service coverage for your product that can be purchased locally. However, some support and related products may not be available in all countries/regions. For information on availability of service upgrades and the cost for these service upgrades, refer to the HP Web site at: http://www.hp.com/support

6

Options and Software Limited Warranties

The Limited Warranty terms and conditions for most HP-branded options (HP Options) are as set forth in the Limited Warranty applicable to the HP Option and are included in the

HP Option product packaging. If your HP Option is installed in an HP Hardware Product,

HP may provide warranty service for either the period specified in the warranty documents (HP Option Limited Warranty Period) that shipped with the HP Option or for the remaining warranty period of the HP Hardware Product in which the HP Option is being installed, whichever period is the longer, but not to exceed three (3) years from the date you purchased the HP Option. The HP Option Limited Warranty Period starts from the date of purchase from HP or an HP authorized reseller. Your dated sales or delivery receipt, showing the date of purchase of the HP Option, is your warranty start date. See your HP Option Limited Warranty for more details. Non-HP options are provided “AS IS.”

However, non-HP manufacturers and suppliers may provide warranties directly to you.

EXCEPT AS PROVIDED IN THE APPLICABLE SOFTWARE END-USER LICENSE OR

PROGRAM LICENSE AGREEMENT, OR IF OTHERWISE PROVIDED UNDER LOCAL LAW,

SOFTWARE PRODUCTS, INCLUDING ANY SOFTWARE PRODUCTS, FREEWARE (AS

DEFINED BELOW), AND THE OPERATING SYSTEM PREINSTALLED BY HP ARE PROVIDED

“AS IS” AND WITH ALL FAULTS, AND HP HEREBY DISCLAIMS ALL OTHER WARRANTIES

AND CONDITIONS, EITHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING, BUT NOT

LIMITED TO, WARRANTIES OF TITLE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT, ANY IMPLIED

WARRANTIES, DUTIES, OR CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY, OF FITNESS FOR A

PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND OF LACK OF VIRUSES. Some states/jurisdictions do not allow exclusion of implied warranties or limitations on the duration of implied warranties, so the above disclaimer may not apply to you in its entirety. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT

PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL HP OR ITS SUPPLIERS BE LIABLE

FOR ANY SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES

WHATSOEVER (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS

OR CONFIDENTIAL OR OTHER INFORMATION, FOR BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, FOR

PERSONAL INJURY, FOR LOSS OF PRIVACY ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY

RELATED TO THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SOFTWARE PRODUCT) EVEN IF

HP OR ANY SUPPLIER HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES

AND EVEN IF THE REMEDY FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE. Some states/jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.

HP’s only warranty obligations with respect to software distributed by HP under the HP brand name are set forth in the applicable end-user license or program license agreement provided with that software. If the removable media on which HP distributes the software proves to be defective in materials or workmanship within one (1) year of purchase, your sole remedy shall be to return the removable media to HP for replacement. For blank tape removable media, refer to the following Web site:

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/

Document.jsp?objectID=lpg50101

It is your responsibility to contact non-HP manufacturers or suppliers for their warranty support.

Understanding Hard Disk Drive Space

The hard disk drive on the Hewlett-Packard and Compaq computers with the Microsoft

®

Windows

® operating system preinstalled may appear to be smaller than what is stated in the product specifications, in the documentation, or on the box. Hard disk drives are described and advertised by manufacturers in terms of decimal (base 10) capacity. Microsoft Windows and other programs, such as FDISK, use the binary (base 2) numbering system.

In decimal notation, one megabyte (MB) is equal to 1,000,000 bytes, and one gigabyte (GB) is equal to 1,000,000,000 bytes. In the binary numbering system, one megabyte is equal to

1,048,576 bytes, and one gigabyte is equal to 1,073,741,824 bytes. Because of the different measuring systems, you may see a difference between the size reported by Microsoft Windows and the size advertised. The storage capacity of the hard disk drive is as advertised.

Microsoft Windows reports smaller capacity in the Windows Explorer tool and in the Computer window because it shows information about one partition on the hard disk drive at a time. One of the partitions contains the system recovery information.

Note About Systems Configured with 4GB of Memory

For computers with a 32-bit operating system, all memory above 3GB may not be available because of system resource requirements.

This limitation is not limited to HP and Compaq systems. The memory above 3GB is used for system resources.

11

Confirming Total Memory

The system BIOS displays the full 4GB of installed memory.

1 Turn on the PC.

2 Press the F10 key. The BIOS menu displays. Confirm the Total Installed Memory.
