Removal and replacement procedures
Preliminary replacement requirements
Tools required
You will need the following tools to complete the removal and replacement procedures:
●
Flat-bladed screwdriver
●
Magnetic screwdriver
●
Phillips P0 and P1 screwdrivers
●
Torx T8 screwdriver
●
5.0-mm nut driver
Service considerations
The following sections include some of the considerations that you must keep in mind during
disassembly and assembly procedures.
NOTE: As you remove each subassembly from the computer, place the subassembly (and all
accompanying screws) away from the work area to prevent damage.
Plastic parts
Using excessive force during disassembly and reassembly can damage plastic parts. Use care when
handling the plastic parts. Apply pressure only at the points designated in the maintenance instructions.
Preliminary replacement requirements
39
Cables and connectors
CAUTION: When servicing the computer, be sure that cables are placed in their proper locations
during the reassembly process. Improper cable placement can damage the computer.
Cables must be handled with extreme care to avoid damage. Apply only the tension required to unseat
or seat the cables during removal and insertion. Handle cables by the connector whenever possible. In
all cases, avoid bending, twisting, or tearing cables. Be sure that cables are routed in such a way that
they cannot be caught or snagged by parts being removed or replaced. Handle flex cables with extreme
care; these cables tear easily.
Drive handling
CAUTION: Drives are fragile components that must be handled with care. To prevent damage to the
computer, damage to a drive, or loss of information, observe these precautions:
Before removing or inserting a hard drive, shut down the computer. If you are unsure whether the
computer is off or in Hibernation, turn the computer on, and then shut it down through the operating
system.
Before handling a drive, be sure that you are discharged of static electricity. While handling a drive,
avoid touching the connector.
Before removing a diskette drive or optical drive, be sure that a diskette or disc is not in the drive and
be sure that the optical drive tray is closed.
Handle drives on surfaces covered with at least one inch of shock-proof foam.
Avoid dropping drives from any height onto any surface.
After removing a hard drive, an optical drive, or a diskette drive, place it in a static-proof bag.
Avoid exposing a hard drive to products that have magnetic fields, such as monitors or speakers.
Avoid exposing a drive to temperature extremes or liquids.
If a drive must be mailed, place the drive in a bubble pack mailer or other suitable form of protective
packaging and label the package “FRAGILE.”

Chapter 4 Removal and replacement procedures
Grounding guidelines
Electrostatic discharge damage
Electronic components are sensitive to electrostatic discharge (ESD). Circuitry design and structure
determine the degree of sensitivity. Networks built into many integrated circuits provide some protection,
but in many cases, ESD contains enough power to alter device parameters or melt silicon junctions.
A discharge of static electricity from a finger or other conductor can destroy static-sensitive devices or
microcircuitry. Even if the spark is neither felt nor heard, damage may have occurred.
An electronic device exposed to ESD may not be affected at all and can work perfectly throughout a
normal cycle. Or the device may function normally for a while, then degrade in the internal layers,
reducing its life expectancy.
CAUTION: To prevent damage to the computer when you are removing or installing internal
components, observe these precautions:
Keep components in their electrostatic-safe containers until you are ready to install them.
Before touching an electronic component, discharge static electricity by using the guidelines described
in this section.
Avoid touching pins, leads, and circuitry. Handle electronic components as little as possible.
If you remove a component, place it in an electrostatic-safe container.
The following table shows how humidity affects the electrostatic voltage levels generated by different
activities.
CAUTION:
A product can be degraded by as little as 700 V.

Packaging and transporting guidelines
Follow these grounding guidelines when packaging and transporting equipment:
●
To avoid hand contact, transport products in static-safe tubes, bags, or boxes.
●
Protect ESD-sensitive parts and assemblies with conductive or approved containers or packaging.
●
Keep ESD-sensitive parts in their containers until the parts arrive at static-free workstations.
●
Place items on a grounded surface before removing items from their containers.
●
Always be properly grounded when touching a component or assembly.
●
Store reusable ESD-sensitive parts from assemblies in protective packaging or nonconductive
foam.
●
Use transporters and conveyors made of antistatic belts and roller bushings. Be sure that
mechanized equipment used for moving materials is wired to ground and that proper materials are
selected to avoid static charging. When grounding is not possible, use an ionizer to dissipate
electric charges.
Workstation guidelines
Follow these grounding workstation guidelines:
42
●
Cover the workstation with approved static-shielding material.
●
Use a wrist strap connected to a properly grounded work surface and use properly grounded tools
and equipment.
●
Use conductive field service tools, such as cutters, screwdrivers, and vacuums.
●
When fixtures must directly contact dissipative surfaces, use fixtures made only of static-safe
materials.
●
Keep the work area free of nonconductive materials, such as ordinary plastic assembly aids and
Styrofoam.
●
Handle ESD-sensitive components, parts, and assemblies by the case or PCM laminate. Handle
these items only at static-free workstations.
●
Avoid contact with pins, leads, or circuitry.
●
Turn off power and input signals before inserting or removing connectors or test equipment.
Chapter 4 Removal and replacement procedures
Equipment guidelines
Grounding equipment must include either a wrist strap or a foot strap at a grounded workstation.
●
When seated, wear a wrist strap connected to a grounded system. Wrist straps are flexible straps
with a minimum of one megohm ±10% resistance in the ground cords. To provide proper ground,
wear a strap snugly against the skin at all times. On grounded mats with banana-plug connectors,
use alligator clips to connect a wrist strap.
●
When standing, use foot straps and a grounded floor mat. Foot straps (heel, toe, or boot straps)
can be used at standing workstations and are compatible with most types of shoes or boots. On
conductive floors or dissipative floor mats, use foot straps on both feet with a minimum of one
megohm resistance between the operator and ground. To be effective, the conductive strips must
be worn in contact with the skin.
The following grounding equipment is recommended to prevent electrostatic damage:
●
Antistatic tape
●
Antistatic smocks, aprons, and sleeve protectors
●
Conductive bins and other assembly or soldering aids
●
Nonconductive foam
●
Conductive tabletop workstations with ground cords of one megohm resistance
●
Static-dissipative tables or floor mats with hard ties to the ground
●
Field service kits
●
Static awareness labels
●
Material-handling packages
●
Nonconductive plastic bags, tubes, or boxes
●
Metal tote boxes
●
Electrostatic voltage levels and protective materials

Backup and recovery
Overview
To protect your information, use the Backup and Restore Center to back up individual files and folders,
back up your entire hard drive (select models only), or create system restore points. In case of system
failure, you can use the backup files to restore the contents of your computer.
Windows Vista provides the following advanced backup and recovery options:
●
Backing up individual files and folders
●
Backing up the entire hard drive (select models only)
●
Scheduling automatic backups (select models only)
●
Creating system restore points
●
Recovering individual files
●
Restoring the computer to a previous state
●
Recovering information using recovery tools
NOTE:
For detailed instructions, perform a search for these topics in Help and Support.
142 Chapter 8 Backup and recovery
Backing up
Backup tips
●
Connect the computer to AC power during the backup process.
●
Store personal files in the Documents folder and back them up regularly.
●
Back up templates that are stored in their associated programs.
●
Save customized settings that appear in a window, toolbar, or menu bar by taking a screen shot
of your settings. The screen shot can be a time-saver if you have to reset your preferences.
To create a screen shot:
1.
Display the screen you want to save.
2.
Copy the screen image:
To copy only the active window, press alt+fn+prt sc.
To copy the entire screen, press fn+prt sc.
3.
Open a word-processing document, and then select Edit > Paste.
The screen image is added to the document.
4.
Save the document.
Backing up your information
Recovery after a system failure is as complete as your most current backup. You should create your
initial backup immediately after software setup. As you add new software and data files, you should
continue to back up your system on a regular basis to maintain a reasonably current backup.
To create a backup using Backup and Restore Center, follow these steps:
1.
Select Start > All Programs > Maintenance > Backup and Restore Center.
2.
Follow the on-screen instructions to back up your entire computer (select models only) or your files.
NOTE: Windows includes the User Account Control feature to improve the security of your
computer. You may be prompted for your permission or password for tasks such as installing
software, running utilities, or changing Windows settings. Refer to Help and Support for more
information.
Backing up 143
Performing a recovery
In case of system failure, use the f11 recovery tool to recover your original hard drive image. The image
includes the Windows operating system and software programs installed at the factory.
NOTE: Windows Vista provides additional recovery tools through the operating system. For additional
information, go to Help and Support.
NOTE: If you are unable to boot (start up) your computer, you must purchase a Windows Vista
operating system DVD to reboot the computer and repair the operating system. For additional
information, refer to the “Recovering information using a Windows Vista operating system DVD
(purchased separately)” section in this guide.
Recovering the hard drive using f11
CAUTION: Using f11 completely erases hard drive contents and reformats the hard drive. All files you
have created and any software installed on the computer are permanently removed. The f11 recovery
tool reinstalls the original operating system and HP programs and drivers that were installed at the
factory. Software not installed at the factory must be manually reinstalled. Personal files must be restored
from a backup.
To recover the original hard drive image, follow these steps:
1.
If possible, back up all personal files.
2.
If possible, check for the presence of the HP Recovery partition. To find the partition, select Start
> Computer.
NOTE: If the HP Recovery partition has been deleted, you will need to recover your operating
system and programs using the Windows Vista operating system DVD and the Driver Recovery
disc (purchased separately). For additional information, refer to the “Recovering information using
a Windows Vista operating system DVD (purchased separately)” section in this guide.
3.
Turn on or restart the computer, and then press esc while the “Press the ESC key for Startup Menu”
message is displayed at the bottom of the screen.
4.
Press f11 while the “Press for recovery” message is displayed on the screen.
5.
Follow the on-screen instructions.
144 Chapter 8 Backup and recovery
Recovering information using a Windows Vista operating
system DVD (purchased separately)
If you are unable to boot (start up) your computer, you must purchase a Windows Vista operating system
DVD to reboot the computer and repair the operating system. Make sure that your most recent backup
(stored on discs or on an external drive) is easily accessible. To order a Windows Vista operating system
DVD, go to http://www.hp.com/support, select your country or region, and follow the on-screen
instructions. You can also order the DVD by calling technical support. For contact information, refer to
the Worldwide Telephone Numbers booklet included with the computer.
CAUTION: Using a Windows Vista operating system DVD will completely erase hard drive contents
and reformat the hard drive. All files you have created and any software installed on the computer will
be permanently removed. When reformatting is complete, the recovery process will help you restore the
operating system, as well as drivers, software, and utilities.
To initiate recovery using a Windows Vista operating system DVD, follow these steps:
NOTE:
This process will take several minutes.
1.
If possible, back up all personal files.
2.
Restart the computer, and then insert the Windows Vista operating system DVD into the optical
drive before the Windows operating system loads.
3.
When prompted, press any keyboard key.
4.
Follow the on-screen instructions.
5.
Click Next.
6.
Select Repair your computer.
7.
Follow the on-screen instructions.
