CAUTION: Electrical current from power, telephone, and communication cables can be hazardous... To avoid personal injury or equipment damage, disconnect the attached power cords, telecommunication systems, networks, and modems before you open the server/workstation covers, unless instructed otherwise in the installation and configuration procedures...

Page 8

Important: Use only approved tools and test equipment... Some hand tools have handles covered with a soft material that does not insulate you when working with live electrical currents... Many customers have, near their equipment, rubber floor mats that contain small conductive fibers to decrease electrostatic discharges... Do not use this type of mat to protect yourself from an electric shock...

Page 9

Safety inspection guide The intent of this inspection guide is to assist you in identifying potentially unsafe conditions on these products... Each machine, as it was designed and built, had required safety items installed to protect users and service personnel from injury... This guide addresses only those items... However, good judgment should be used to identify potential safety hazards due to attachment of features or options not covered by this inspection guide...

Page 10

Handling electrostatic discharge-sensitive devices Any computer part containing transistors or integrated circuits (ICs) should be considered sensitive to electrostatic discharge (ESD)... ESD damage can occur when there is a difference in charge between objects... Protect against ESD damage by equalizing the charge so that the machine, the part, the work mat, and the person handling the part are all at the same charge...

Page 11

CAUTION: When replacing the lithium battery, use only Part Number 45C1566 or an equivalent type battery recommended by the manufacturer... If your system has a module containing a lithium battery, replace

Page 12

CAUTION: The power control button on the device and the power switch on the power supply do not turn off the electrical current supplied to the device... The device also might have more than one power cord... To remove all electrical current from the device, ensure that all power cords are disconnected from the power source...

Problem determination tips Due to the variety of hardware and software combinations that can be encountered, use the following information to assist you in problem determination... If possible, have this information available when requesting assistance from Service Support and Engineering functions...

Page 38

Comparing the configuration and software set-up between working and non-working systems will often lead to problem resolution...

Page 39

Note: If you cannot correct the problem, have the computer serviced... For a list of service and support telephone numbers, refer to the ThinkStation Safety and Warranty Guide that comes with your computer or go to the Lenovo Support Web site at http://www... lenovo... com/support/phone...

Page 40

5... Try using a previously captured configuration to see if a recent change to hardware or software settings has caused a problem... Before restoring a previous configuration, capture your current configuration in case the older configuration settings do not solve the problem or have adverse affects... To restore a captured configuration, do the following:

Page 41

1... Remove the new hardware option or software... If you must remove the computer cover to remove a hardware option, make sure you review and follow the electrical safety information provided with your computer... For your safety, do not operate the computer with the cover removed...

Page 42

Note: When external-speaker or headphone cables are attached to the audio connector, the internal speaker, if present, is disabled... In most cases, if an audio adapter is installed in one of the expansion slots, the audio function built into the system board is disabled; use the audio jacks on the adapter...

Page 43

Verify that the disc you are using is not scratched or damaged... Try inserting another disc that you know is good... If you cannot read from a known-good disc, you might have a problem with your CD or DVD drive or the cabling to your CD or DVD drive... Make sure that the power cable and signal cable are securely connected to the drive...

Page 44

If these actions do not correct the problem, run the diagnostic programs (see Lenovo Solution Center on page 52 for instructions)... If you need technical assistance, see Lenovo Support Web site on page 31...

Page 45

Verify that when the computer is on, the fan grill is not blocked (there is air flow around the grill), and the fans are working... If airflow is blocked or the fans are not working, the computer might overheat...

Page 46

Note: In rare cases, the hard disk drive with the operating system might get corrupted or damaged... In such cases, you might need to replace the hard disk drive... Refer to Installing or replacing a hard disk drive on page 98... Additionally, you might need to recover the data on the hard disk drive, or restore the hard disk drive to the factory default state... Refer to Using the Rescue and Recovery workspace in the User Guide for more information...

Page 47

Verify that the mouse or pointing-device cable is securely attached to the correct connector on the computer... Depending on the type of mouse you have, the mouse cable will connect to either the mouse, serial, or USB connector... Some keyboards have integrated USB connectors that can be used for a USB mouse or pointing device...

Page 48

Monitor problems Note: Many monitors have status-indicator lights and built-in controls for adjusting brightness, contrast, width, height, and other picture adjustments... However, the controls vary from monitor type to monitor type... For information about the status lights and using the controls, refer to the documentation that comes with your monitor...

Page 49

Action: The monitor might be affected by interference from nearby equipment... Magnetic fields around other devices, such as transformers, appliances, fluorescent lights, and other monitors might be causing the problem... Move fluorescent desk lighting or any equipment that produces magnetic fields further away from the monitor... If this does not correct the problem, do the following:

Page 50

The network cable must be securely connected to both the Ethernet connector of your computer and the RJ45 connector of the hub... The maximum allowable distance from the computer to hub is 100 meters... If the cable is connected and the distance is within acceptable limits but the problem persists, try a different cable...

Page 51

If the option is an adapter, you have provided enough hardware resources for the adapter to function correctly... See the documentation supplied with the adapter (as well as the documentation for any other installed adapters) to determine the resources required for each adapter...

Page 52

If these actions do not correct the problem, run the diagnostic programs (see Lenovo Solution Center on page 52 for instructions)... If you need technical assistance, see Lenovo Support Web site on page 31...

Page 53

Clean out your Inbox, Sent Items, and Deleted Items folders from your e-mail application... The folder names and procedures vary depending on your e-mail application... If you need assistance, see the help system for your e-mail application...

Page 54

Action: Install additional memory... For information about purchasing memory, see Lenovo Support Web site on page 31... For step-by-step instructions on installing memory, see Installing or replacing a memory module on page 86...

Page 55

Action: Some software developed before the year 2000 used only the last two digits of a year to sort dates, always assuming the first two digits were 19... Consequently, these programs sort dates out of order... Check with your software manufacturer to see if any updates are available... Many software manufacturers make updates available from the World Wide Web...

Page 56

Diagnostics The diagnostic program is used to test hardware components of your computer... The diagnostic program can also report operating-system-controlled settings that interfere with the correct operation of your computer... You can use the preinstalled diagnostic program to diagnose computer problems, if your computer is running the Windows operating system...

Page 57

Viewing and changing settings The Setup Utility program menu lists various items about the system configuration... To view or change settings, start the Setup Utility program... See Starting the Setup Utility program on page 53... Then, follow the instructions on the screen...

Page 58
