Procedures

II. Hardware Installation

WARNING! Computer boards and components contain very delicate Integrated Circuit (IC) chips. To protect the computer board and other components against damage from static electricity, you must follow some precautions.

1.Make sure that you unplug your power supply when adding or removing expansion cards or other system components. Failure to do so may cause severe damage to both your motherboard and expansion cards.

2.Keep all components such as the host adapter in its antistatic bag until you are ready to install it.

3.Use a grounded wrist strap before handling computer components. If you do not have one, touch both of your hands to a safely grounded object or to a metal object, such as the power supply case. Hold components by the edges and try not to touch the IC chips, leads, or circuitry.

4.Place components on a grounded antistatic pad or on the bag that came with the component whenever the components are separated from the system.

Installation Procedures

New Systems

1.Unplug all electrical cords on your computer.

2.Remove the system unit cover.

3.Locate the PCI expansion slot. Make sure this slot is unobstructed.

4.Remove the corresponding expansion slot cover from the computer chassis.

5.Ground yourself to an antistatic mat or other grounded source (see WARNING!).

6.Pick up the board (still in its sleeve) by grasping the edge bracket with one hand and then remove the plastic sleeve.

7.Position the card directly over the PCI slot and insert one end of the board in the slot first. Firmly but gently press the bus connector on the bottom of the card down into the slot. Be sure the metal contacts on the bottom of the host adapter are securely seated in the slot.

8.Anchor the board’s mounting bracket to the computer chassis using the screw from the slot cover that you set aside previously.

9.Replace the cover on the system unit.

10.Connect your analog monitor’s 15-pinVGA connector to the card and fasten the retaining screws (if any).

11.Connect other cables and devices if available -Youare now ready to install the software drivers and utilities.

Systems with Existing VGA Card

1.Install the ASUS 3DP-V3000display drivers with your current VGA card.

2.Shut down your computer and unplug all electrical cords.

3.Replace the existing VGA card with the ASUS 3DP-V3000graphics card.

4.Restart your computer — the ASUS 3DP-V3000graphics card should be automatically detected and the display drivers automatically updated.
