What Does FRU Mean?

Hello,
The maintenance manual for my laptop computer keeps refering to FRU. For example:

"If you are instructed to replace a FRU but the replacement does not correct the problem, reinstall the original FRU before you continue".

I can't figure out what FRU means! Can you help me?

    Field Replaceable Unit.
    In otherwords, a part that the tech can change in the field, and not have to take the computer back to the shop for repair.

    Also check in the Service Manual/s at the end of the Bookmarks menu, for Recycled information.
    If the service manual doesn't have a direct heading, listing disassembly of the Display Assembly, check the Recycled information. It does.
