Installing The Network Daughter Card

  • CAUTION: Many repairs may only be done by a certified service technician. You should only perform troubleshooting and simple repairs as authorized in your product documentation, or as directed by the online or telephone service and support team. Damage due to servicing that is not authorized by Dell is not covered by your warranty. Read and follow the safety instructions that came with the product.
  1. Angle the card so that the RJ-45 connectors fit through the slot in the back panel.
  2. Align the captive screws at back-end of the card with the captive screw sockets on the system board.
  3. Press the touch point on the card until the card connector is firmly seated on the system board connector.
  4. Using a #2 Phillips screwdriver, tighten the two captive screws to secure the network daughter card to the system board.
  5. If applicable, install the expansion card(s) in the expansion-card riser 2.
  6. Close the system.
  7. Reconnect the system to its electrical outlet and turn the system on, including any attached peripherals.
