System board replacement (trained technician only)
Use this procedure to remove or install the system board.
Before you return the system board, make sure that you install the processor socket covers from the new system board. To replace a processor socket cover:
Take a socket cover from the processor socket assembly on the new system board and orient it correctly above the processor socket assembly on the removed system board.
Gently press down the socket cover legs to the processor socket assembly, pressing on the edges to avoid damage to the socket pins. You might hear a click on the socket cover is securely attached.
Make sure that the socket cover is securely attached to the processor socket assembly.
