FCC Notice:
FCC ID: AO9-PBXGC and AO9-PBXGD
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation
is subject to the following conditions:
1. This device may not cause harmful interference, and
2. This device must accept any interference received, including
interference that may cause undesired operation.
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with
the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part
15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide
reasonable protection against harmful interference in a
residential installation. Any changes or modifications made
to this equipment may void the user’s authority to operate this
equipment.
This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency
energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with
the instruction manual, may cause harmful interference to
radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that
interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this
equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television
reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off
and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference
by one or more of the following measures:
•
Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
•
Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
•
Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different
from that to which the receiver is connected.
•
Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for
help.
The video cable port should be connected with only a shielded
data cable with an integrated ferrite bead over the cable. If
this port is connected with a cable without such a ferrite bead,
additional ferrite beads shall be clamped over the cable next to
the cable connector near the system unit.

Frequency Switch
Description
Each module has a rotary-style switch with which to select the
default frequency and resolution of the video signal that the
module produces.
Important
The frequency switch settings listed in Table 5 are
not used on systems running the Microsoft Windows
NT operating system. See the Graphics Support
Services Software Version 3.0 for Microsoft Windows NT
Installation and User Guide for information on how to
set your module to a correct resolution and refresh rate.
Switch Settings
The installed orientation of a module varies from system to
system; therefore, set the rotary frequency switch to the proper
setting prior to installation of the module. Table 5 lists the
PBXGB–AA/CA graphics option module switch settings.
Note
The switch setting is not dynamic and is read-only upon
initialization, power-up, or system reset.

Module Installation
Module Installation
Procedure
The installation of a PBXGB–AA/CA graphics option module can
be accomplished in a few easy-to-do steps. Each step presumes
that you are familiar with your hardware platform. For specific
information regarding your hardware platform, refer to your
system documentation.
1. Turn off the system and any external devices. Disconnect
any external devices and cables, and unplug the power cord
from the wall outlet.
2. Remove the system unit cover, and unscrew and remove
the metal filler plate that may be present for the PCI slot
that you have selected. Save the screw that secured the
metal filler plate; you will need this screw later to secure the
adapter to the enclosure.
3. Set the frequency switch using the video timing values in
Table 5 as reference. Skip this step on Microsoft Windows
NT systems.
CAUTION
To avoid damage to the module from static discharge,
wear the antistatic wriststrap (part number
12–36175–01) when handling the module. Instructions
for use are on the strap’s envelope.

Module Installation
4. To enable (or make active), or disable aliasing and the use of
the VGA chip, set the VGA and alias jumpers correctly.
Important
There can be only one VGA-enabled device in a system.
Use the jumper setting information in Table 6, Figure 3, and
Figure 4 as a guide to setting the jumpers. Note the key
below the table.

Note
For graphics to appear from left to right in a multihead
configuration, the leftmost monitor must be attached to
the graphics module in the highest PCI slot, the next
monitor to the right must be connected to the second
highest graphics module, and so on.
6. Replace and secure the cover to the system unit. Attach all
external devices and cables that were previously removed.

7. Connect the video cable to the video cable port. The video
cable port is reference number
in Figure 1 and Figure 2.

Important
The video cable should be connected with only a shielded
data cable with an integrated ferrite bead over the
cable. If this port is connected with a cable without
such a ferrite bead, then clamp the snap-on ferrite bead
provided in your parts kit on the video cable next to the
cable connector near the system unit.
8. Connect the optional stereoscopic cable to the stereo cable
port. The stereo cable port is reference number
in Figure 1
and Figure 2.

9. Connect your video monitor as described in your system
documentation.
10. Plug the power cord into the wall outlet. Turn on the
external devices and the system.

Confirming Proper Installation
Confirming Proper Installation
Procedure
To confirm that the module is installed properly, perform the
following steps:
1. Turn on the monitor and any other devices connected to the
system unit.
2. Turn on the system unit.
3. Verify that the console display is available and legible on the
monitor screen.
Troubleshooting
If the console display does not appear on the monitor screen,
perform the following steps:
1. Verify that the power cord for the system and video monitor,
and all related devices, are plugged into a live wall outlet
and that all devices are on.
2. Ensure that the video and optional stereoscopic cables and
connections are secure.
3. Verify that the video cable is properly secured to the video
cable port and video monitor.
4. Verify that the module is seated correctly in the PCI slot.
5. Verify that the monitor can handle the resolution and refresh
rate. For Windows NT systems, refer to your Graphics
Support Services Software Version 3.0 for Microsoft Windows
NT Installation and User Guide for information. And, see
Appendix A — Video Timing for more information.
6. Verify that the video monitor brightness and contrast
controls are properly set.
7. Verify that the VGA and alias jumpers are set as described
in Table 6, and shown in Figure 3 and Figure 4.
If a problem persists, contact your Digital service representative.
