  1. Locate the TCM/TPM adapter connector on the system board (see System-board connectors ).
  2. If an I/O expansion adapter is installed in the I/O expansion 1 connector (see System-board connectors for the location of the connector), you will need to remove it first (see Remove an I/O expansion adapter ), as it will block your access to the TCM/TPM adapter connector.
  3. Carefully hold the TCM/TPM adapter by its edges; then, gently press on the latch, and lift it from the system board.

If you are instructed to return the component or optional device, follow all packaging instructions, and use any packaging materials for shipping that are supplied to you.
