Unit Environment and
Operating Conditions
General Unit Operating Guidelines
Keep the computer away from excessive moisture, direct moisture and the extremes of heat and
cold, to ensure that unit is operated within the specified operating range.
Leave a 4 in (10.2 cm) clearance on all vented sides of the computer to permit the required
airflow.
Never restrict airflow into the computer by blocking any vents or air intakes.
Do not stack computers on top of each other or place computers so near each other that they are
subject to each other's re-circulated or preheated air.
Occasionally clean the air vents on the front, back, and any other vented side of the computer.
Lint, dust and other foreign matter can block the vents and limit the airflow.
If the computer is to be operated within a separate enclosure, intake and exhaust ventilation must
be provided on the enclosure, and the same operating guidelines listed above will still apply.

Memory
DDR SYNCH DRAM NON-ECC MEMORY
The Intel G31 Express chipset supports non-ECC DDR2 memory up to PC2-6400 (800-MHz). Memory upgrades are accomplished
by adding single or dual DIMMs of the same or varied sizes. This chart does not represent all possible memory configurations.
CAUTION: You must shut down the computer and disconnect the power cord before adding or removing memory modules.
Regardless of the power-on state, voltage is always supplied to the memory modules as long as the computer is plugged in to an
active AC outlet. Adding or removing memory modules while voltage is present may cause irreparable damage to the memory
modules or system board.
HP recommends dual-channel symmetric configurations for maximum performance.
performance
For best performance, add the same amount of total memory to each channel and do not mix speeds. For dual-channel symmetric
performance, the total amount of memory in each channel must be equal. If speeds are mixed, speed will default to the slowest
DIMM.
STANDARD MEMORY
1-GB, 2-GB, or 4-GB DDR2 SYNCH DRAM
OPTIONAL MEMORY UPGRADES
Supports up to 4 GB of DDR2 SYNCH DRAM. Not all memory configurations possible are represented below.
NOTE: For systems configured with more than 3 GB of memory and a 32-bit operating system, all memory may not be available
due to system resource requirements. Addressing memory above 4 GB requires a 64-bit operating system.

Integrated
PCI Express™ x16 (If an external graphics card is installed in a PCI slot, the
internal graphics can be enabled or disabled using the system's BIOS setup
utility. If an external graphics card is installed in the PCI Express™ slot, the
internal graphics cannot be enabled).
Integrated, 350 MHz
Graphics memory is shared with system memory. Graphics memory usage
varies depending on the amount of system memory installed and system
load. 8 MB is pre-allocated for graphics use at system boot time. Additional
memory is allocated for graphics as needed using Intel's Dynamic Video
Memory Technology (DVMT), to provide an optimal balance between
graphics and system memory use.
System memory equal or greater than 512 MB
8 MB pre-allocated + 248 MB DVMT = max frame buffer of 256 MB

All HP Monitors are supported, but the 30-inch LP3065 model requires a dual-link graphics card.
1 Modes listed are supported with a single active display. The supported mode list for multiple active displays is a subset of this list.
Not all modes will support video playback and some supported modes may use software MC (motion compensation) rather than
hardware MC. Not all modes will support 3D acceleration depending on the system configuration (e.g., resolution selected, size of
frame buffer, number of installed memory modules, etc.).
NOTE: Other resolutions and refresh rates may be selectable but are not recommended.
