Failsafe Boot Block ROM Diagnostic Functions The computer comes with a reprogrammable flash system ROM (read only memory). To upgrade the ROM, download the latest ROM BIOS image from the HP Web site (www.hp.com) and follow the online GUI/instructions. Diagnostic functions are provided by the Setup Utility (in system ROM) and by Insight Diagnostics. Insight Diagnostics provides detailed system information including: All ROM BIOS images from HP are digitally signed to ensure authenticity and minimize potential corruption. Your system ROM includes a Failsafe Boot Block that is protected during the flash process and allows the computer to be restarted in the unlikely event of an unsuccessful ROM flash. If the system detects an invalid system ROM during the boot sequence the system will search for a bootable device. To recover from the Boot Block recovery mode complete the following steps: • • • • • Processor type and speed Memory amount, mapping, and integrity Hardware peripheral availability/settings Hard drive type, space used/available System identification, asset tracking Insight Diagnostics may be pre installed on some models and can be downloaded free of charge from www.hp.com. Boot Block Recovery 1. Remove any bootable media from the computer and turn off power. 2. Insert a bootable diskette, or CD containing the ROM BIOS. Error Conditions and Messages 3. Turn on power to the system. Chassis Diagnostic LEDs 4. The system will automatically flash the ROM, load the BIOS default, and then boot to the operating system. Power LED Event Steady green System on (normal operation) Steady green for 3 seconds followed by a 1 second pause System overheating. Blinks green @ 0.5 Hz Suspend to RAM (some models) Security Functions The system offers a single supervisor password for system and data protection. The password, if established, protects the computer from unauthorized access by prompting the user for a password during power up. The password, if established, protects the computer from unauthorized or inadvertent re-configuration by prompting the user for a password prior to entering the Setup Utility. Establishing a password: 1. Turn on or restart the computer. If you are in Windows, click Start > Shut Down > Restart the computer. 2. When the F10 Setup message appears in the lower-right corner of the screen, press the F10 key. Press Enter to bypass the title screen, if necessary. If you do not press F10 when prompted, a restart will be necessary. 3. Select Password Option, then select Change Supervisor Password and follow the instructions on the screen. You may also want to establish the Password check at this time. This will allow you to specify when the password will be required. 4. Before exiting, click File > Save Changes and Exit.
