I'm probably a little late - but be sure to remove the power cord *before* the extracting the system board.


and just in case any other questions come up about the installation of the FPA:

It's been a while since I've installed an FPA, but if you mean the entire system board face plate when you say bezel, I don't think it's necessary to remove the bezel from an R5 <or R5200>.

Take a look at the link with the instructions for installing the Flat Panel Monitor Adapter <linked in my last post>.

Ignore any instructions that are specific to the "O2 R10000 Class Workstations" <the illustrations of a perforated PCI tray are specific *only* to O2's with an R10000 series processor - skip over those>.

Follow the only those instruction lated for the "O2 R5000 Class Workstations" <with R5000 based O2s, you don't have to remove the entire system board face plate to extract the PCI Tray - there's a lever that will release the R5000 PCI Tray>

The fpa is a little niggly to fit. You've got to squirm and push it a little. And no, you don't have to take off the black plastic face plate ... altho it seems to me I did that once, trying to get the &^%$ thing to go in. They don't just slide in easily, so don't be worried if you have a little trouble.

You don't have to remove the system board to install the FPA. Just be careful and be patient, and you can get it in. Don't force anything.

I disagree. Take out the two screws and unplug the mainboard connection (lift up on the side far away from the bezel), it should pretty much fall out. At least the 1600sw adapter does, not sure about the presenter.

It might need a little bit of wiggling but certainly no force.

Mine was probably tweaked. It did cross the Pacific jammed into my carry-on then got smuggled thru Customs :D
