Closing the cover and connecting the cables - ThinkCentre A50, S50

After working with options, you need to install any removed parts, close the cover, and reconnect cables, including telephone lines and power cords. Also, depending on the option that is installed, you might need to confirm the updated information in the Setup Utility program.

These instructions are also available in movie format:

To close the cover and connect cables to your computer

  1. Ensure that all components have been reassembled correctly and that no tools or loose screws are left inside your computer.
  2. Clear any cables that might impede the replacement of the cover.
  3. Make sure that the drive locks are both in the locked position. Otherwise, you cannot close the cover.
  4. Close the cover.
  5. If a cover lock is installed, lock the cover.
  6. If your computer is being placed in the vertical position, attach the floor stand.
    Attention: To prevent overheating and possible component damage, always attach the floor stand when placing the computer in the vertical position.
  7. Reconnect the external cables and power cords to the computer. See "Locating connectors on the rear of your computer".
  8. To update the configuration, see "Starting the Setup Utility program".
