Modem daughter card (MDC) removal and installation - ThinkPad X60 Tablet, X61 Tablet

Your system has a Modem Daughter Card (MDC) slot, in which you can install a Modem Daughter Card.

During electrical storms, do not connect the cable to or disconnect it from the telephone outlet on the wall.

Electric current from power, telephone, and communication cables is hazardous. To avoid shock hazard, disconnect the cables before opening the cover of this slot.

Before you start installing a module, touch a metal table or a grounded metal object. This action reduces any static electricity from your body. The static electricity could damage the Modem Daughter Card.
