Before you begin

  • A VESA wall mount assembly (sold separately) and this wall mount adapter (sold separately) are required. Both assemblies are needed to mount the computer to a wall. When purchasing a VESA wall mount assembly, use a VESA standard 200 mm x 100 mm hole pattern designed for flat-panel displays ranging in size from 584 mm (23 inch) to 786 mm (30.9 inch) diagonal, and weighing up to 22.7 kg (50 lb).
  • Turn off the computer and disconnect all cables.
  • Transfer the computer to a clean, flat, stable work surface over a noncarpeted floor. HP recommends that you put down a blanket, towel, or other soft cloth to protect the screen from scratches or other damage.
  • Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can damage your processor, disk drives, expansion boards and other components. HP strongly recommends the use of an antistatic wrist strap and a conductive foam pad when working on the computer.
  • Do not remove a component from its protective packaging until you are ready to install it.
CAUTION: This product contains components that can be damaged by electrostatic discharge (ESD). To reduce the chance of ESD damage, work over a noncarpeted floor, use a static dissipative work surface (such as a conductive foam pad), and wear an ESD wrist strap connected to a grounded surface.
