Take a moment to become familiar with how the glide pad works.
Place Your Fingertip
Place your left or right hand next to the glide pad, resting your wrist naturally in a
relaxed manner. Place your thumb or finger on the glide pad.
Move Your Fingertip
The rectangular pad of the glide pad acts like a miniature duplicate of the display.
As you slide your fingertip across the pad, the pointer on the screen moves in the
same direction across the screen. The glide pad is very sensitive, so you do not have
to exert much pressure on the pad. The glide pad will respond to a light touch from
your fingertip.
Click, Double-click, and Right-click
To click or double-click, you can use the left button just like that of a mouse.
Instead of clicking the left button, you can also just tap gently anywhere on the
rectangular pad. For right-clicking, you must use the right button.

CHAPTER 3
Battery and Power Management
3
This chapter explains how to manage the computer’s power effectively and use the
standard battery.
Battery Pack
When not connected to an external power source, your computer operates with the
rechargeable battery pack. The duration of the battery life may be longer if the
computer’s Power Management is active. See the next section for power
management.
To keep the battery life long:
•
•
Initialize the battery pack if the actual remaining power in your battery is less than
what the battery indicator lights suggest as per the procedure on page 3-3.
Turn off your computer when you are not using it.
• The duration a battery life will depend on the computer usage.
Applications which heavily use the peripherals will experience shorter
power duration.
• When the battery is not charged, your computer may not operate
properly. Connect the AC power to charge the battery.
• If you see an error message during booting, press F2 to open the Setup
Utility. Following the instructions in Chapter 8, adjust the Setup Utility
and restart the system.
• When using the computer for several hours with battery packs, enable
power management and set Hibernation. Refer to the Power
Management section in this chapter.
3-1
Checking the Battery Level
You can check the battery level in the Power Options properties dialog box in the
Control Panel or double-clicking the battery or AC plug icon on the taskbar.
The battery power remaining is an approximate figure. The remaining
operating time expected may be different from the actual remaining time,
depending on the use of the computer. If the actual remaining power in
your battery is less than what the battery indicator lights suggest, you
should initialize the battery pack as per the procedure on page 3-3.
3
Low Battery Indication
When the battery power becomes significantly low, the battery status indicator ( )
turns red and the warning beep sounds. Save your data and turn off the computer, or
connect the computer to a wall outlet immediately. Otherwise, the computer will be
shutdown and the data may be lost. To stop the warning beep, press Fn + F10 keys.
If you set Low Battery Alarm or Critical Battery Alarm in Windows Me, the
computer will be turned off or enter System stand by or Hibernate in case of
significantly low battery power. See Power Management section of this chapter.

Troubleshooting
This chapter describes how to troubleshoot computer problems.
Common Problems
Problems with your computer can be caused by something as minor as an unplugged
power cord or as major as a damaged hard disk drive. The information in this
troubleshooting section is designed to help you find and solve minor problems. If
you still have a problem after trying all the suggested remedies in this chapter,
contact your dealer.
The problems that you might encounter can be divided into two basic categories:
hardware and software. Hardware problems can be further divided into being of an
electrical or a mechanical nature. You will know you have a hardware problem if, for
example, the screen is blank, or the computer cannot recognize the disk drives.
Software problems can occur at several levels. Both your operating system and your
software application programs are capable of generating errors and error messages.
If you encounter a software error, try to determine if the error message is from your
operating system or from an application program, and refer to the appropriate
manual for possible remedies.
You can also refer to the Windows manual or Windows Help program to solve the
problem. To access the Help program, select Help from the Start menu. It also gives
you Troubleshooting tips and an Index.
Successful troubleshooting is the result of careful observation, deductive reasoning,
and an organized approach to solving the problem. If you encounter a problem,
begin by performing a careful visual inspection. Check the exterior of the computer
first. If no lights are displayed, check the battery charge or power outlet, the plug and
power cord, and any power switches that may affect your computer. If the computer
has been connected to any peripheral devices, look for loose or disconnected cables.
You may also need to check the fuses and breakers in your electric box. A few
common problems and suggested solutions are presented in the examples which
