System board assembly, fan assembly, and backup battery removal and installation

 

Important notices for handling the system board:

When handling the system board, bear the following in mind.

  • The system board has an accelerometer, which can be broken if several thousands of G-forces are applied.

    Note: Dropping a system board from a height of as little as 6 inches so that it falls flat on a hard bench can subject the accelerometer to as much as 6,000 G's of shock.

  • Be careful not to drop the system board on a bench top that has a hard surface, such as metal, wood, or composite.

  • If a system board is dropped, you must test it, using PC-Doctor for DOS, to make sure that the HDD Active Protection System™ still functions.

    Note: If the test shows that the HDD Active Protection System is not functioning, be sure to document the drop in any reject report, and replace the system board.

  • Avoid rough handling of any kind.

  • At every point in the process, be sure not to drop or stack the system board.

  • If you put a system board down, be sure to put it only on a padded surface such as an ESD mat or a corrugated conductive surface.

After replacing the system board, run PC-Doctor for DOS to make sure that the HDD Active Protection System still functions. The procedure is as follows:

  1. Place the computer on a horizontal surface.
  2. Run Diagnostics -> ThinkPad Devices -> HDD Active Protection Test.

Attention: Do not apply physical shock to the computer while the test is running.
