HP Workstation b2600 - Replacing the PCI Cage, I/O Card and PCI Backplane Board

To remove the PCI cage, I/O card and PCI backplane board from the system, you will need to follow the procedures discussed in the subsequent sections.
PCI cage removal
To remove the PCI cage, follow this procedure:
  1. Remove the front bezel and top cover.
  2. Remove the CD drive.
  3. Remove the DAT drive.
  4. Remove the flexible disk drive.
  5. Lift up on the PCI cage handle (the CD, DAT, or flexible disk drives must be removed).

  6. Remove the PCI cage from the system. See Figure 2.

I/O card removal
This procedure assumes you have removed the PCI cage from the system.
  1. Set the PCI cage on an anti-static surface and remove the PCI cage cover. See Figure 3.

  2. Unscrew the I/O card's bulkhead screw (Torx T-15 screw). See Figure 4.

  3. Grasp the I/O card's bulkhead and the rear edge and lift it out of its PCI slot. As you lift up on the I/O card, you may need to slightly rock it back and forth. This will loosen the I/O card from its PCI slot. See Figure 5.

    2. I/O card slot
  4. Place the I/O card on an anti-static surface to protect it from any possible electro-static discharge.
PCI backplane board removal
Once you have removed the PCI cage from the system and removed all of the I/O cards from the PCI cage, you are ready to remove the PCI backplane board.
  1. Unscrew the three T-15 Torx screws.
      Figure : Unscrewing the PCI backplane's three T-15 Torx screws
    1. PCI backplane screws
  2. Slide the PCI backplane board away from the PCI cage's I/O card openings and remove it from the PCI cage. See Figure 7. Note that the PCI backplane board has two elongated slots cut in it that allow the card to slide in grooves located on the top of two PCI cage standoffs. The PCI backplane board will stop sliding when it reaches the opposite end of the elongated slot. At this point, the slot has been enlarged to allow you to lift the PCI backplane board out of the PCI cage.

    2. I/O card openings
PCI card guide removal
The PCI cover's card guides are made of plastic and can be easily removed to accommodate PCI cards that have components or connectors with which the guide interferes. Therefore, you may need to remove them from the PCI cover. To do this, follow the procedure in this section.
  1. Push the card guide forward with your thumb in the direction of the large arrow and at the same time apply downward pressure.

  2. Remove the card guide from the PCI cover. Note that after you have completed Step 1, the card guide will fall through the card guide slot.

Replacing the PCI cage, I/O card, and PCI backplane board
To replace the PCI backplane board, I/O card and PCI cage in the system, you will need to follow the procedures discussed in the subsequent sections.
PCI backplane board replacement
To replace the PCI backplane board, follow this procedure:
  1. Remove the current CD drive, DAT drive or flexible disk drive if you have not already done this. Otherwise, skip this step.
  2. Slide the PCI backplane board onto the PCI cage's standoffs. See Figure 10. Note that the PCI backplane board has two elongated slots cut in it that allow the card to slide in grooves located on the top of two PCI cage standoffs. The PCI backplane board will stop sliding when it reaches the opposite end of the elongated slot.

  3. Screw in the three PCI backplane board's screws. See Figure 11.

I/O card replacement
This procedure assumes you have replaced the PCI cage backplane board in the system.
  1. Replace the PCI backplane board in the PCI cage if you have not already done this. Otherwise, skip this step.
  2. Remove the I/O card from its anti-static bag, which protects it from any possible electro-static discharge.
  3. Grasp the I/O card's bulkhead and the back edge and insert it into its PCI slot.

    4. I/O card slot
  4. Screw in the I/O card's bulkhead screw to secure it in its PCI card slot. See Figure 13.

  5. Replace the PCI cage cover by inserting its two retainer tabs into the retainer slots and rotating the cover downward until the cover's slide lock snaps into place in the PCI cage's slide lock slot. See Figure 14.

PCI cage replacement
To replace the PCI cage, follow this procedure:
  1. Replace the I/O card(s) in the PCI cage if you have not already done this. Otherwise, skip this step.
  2. Push down on the PCI cage handle and on the back of the PCI cage. Next, rotate the PCI cage handle downward. This will secure the PCI cage in the workstation. See Figure 15.

  3. Remove the CD drive.
  4. Remove the DAT drive.
  5. Remove the flexible disk drive.
  6. Remove the front bezel and top cover.
  7. Connect and turn on the power to your system.
  8. Determine that your I/O cards were replaced successfully by executing this command as root:
    icscan -fn
    In the next window that appears, you should see your I/O card listed. If it is not listed, repeat the previous procedures in this section including this one. If your I/O card is still not listed, contact your local HP Support Representative.
PCI card guide replacement
This section explains how to replace a PCI card guide that has been removed from your PCI cage cover. To replace a PCI card guide, follow this procedure:
  1. Locate the front of the card guide slot and the card guide lip.
