Before Working Inside Your Computer
Use the following safety guidelines to help protect your computer from potential damage and to help to ensure your
personal safety. Unless otherwise noted, each procedure included in this document assumes that the following
conditions exist:
•
You have performed the steps in Working on Your Computer.
•
You have read the safety information that shipped with your computer.
•
A component can be replaced or--if purchased separately--installed by performing the removal procedure in
reverse order.
WARNING: Before working inside your computer, read the safety information that shipped with your computer. For
additional safety best practices information, see the Regulatory Compliance Homepage at www.dell.com/
regulatory_compliance
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.
CAUTION: To avoid electrostatic discharge, ground yourself by using a wrist grounding strap or by periodically
touching an unpainted metal surface, such as a connector on the back of the computer.
CAUTION: Handle components and cards with care. Do not touch the components or contacts on a card. Hold a
card by its edges or by its metal mounting bracket. Hold a component such as a processor by its edges, not by its
pins.
CAUTION: When you disconnect a cable, pull on its connector or on its pull-tab, not on the cable itself. Some
cables have connectors with locking tabs; if you are disconnecting this type of cable, press in on the locking tabs
before you disconnect the cable. As you pull connectors apart, keep them evenly aligned to avoid bending any
connector pins. Also, before you connect a cable, ensure that both connectors are correctly oriented and aligned.

momentarily until Windows draws a complete

Using the Stylus or Finger on Touch Keyboard
The Touch Keyboard or Handwriting recognition makes it easy to enter text into your applications with the stylus or finer.
Applications like Windows Journal, allow you to write with the stylus directly into the application window.
Touch Keyboard
Some of the Windows text input boxes will bring out the Touch Keyboard automatically when you tap on the boxes.
When it does not come out, you can open the Touch Keyboard by clicking on the keyboard icon on the system toolbar.
The Touch Keyboard is like a standard keyboard will appear on the screen which can be used to enter text by tapping
the keys with your stylus pen or finger

the keys with your stylus or your thumb.
The writing pad and character pad
convert handwriting into typed text.
You can write continuously on the
writing pad, like writing on a piece of
lined paper. Use the character pad to
enter one character at a time. The
character pad converts your
handwriting to typed text, one letter,
number or symbol at a time, but does
not take the context of the full word
into account and does not take
advantage of the handwriting
dictionary. To switch to the character
pad in Input Panel, tap Tools, and then
Write character by character
To minimize the Touch keyboard, click
the minimize icon.
Stylus Flicks
Stylus flicks enable you to use the stylus to perform actions that normally require a keyboard, such as pressing <Page
Up> or using the directional arrow keys. Stylus flicks are quick, directional gestures. You can quickly draw a short line in
one of eight directions. When a stylus flick is recognized, the Tablet PC performs the action assigned.

Pen and Touch Settings
Using the stylus, you can adjust how quickly you tap the screen when you double-tap the screen. It also allows you
define the spatial tolerance.
The Press and Hold settings allow you to define the speed and the duration for a right-click action.
10
Touch Usage
One of the key advantages of the Tablet PC is the ability to easily switch from pen input to touch input.
When you use Touch Mode , a translucent image of a computer mouse, called the touch pointer, floats beneath your
finger. The touch pointer has left and right mouse buttons that you can tap with your finger. You use the area beneath
the buttons to drag the touch pointer.
To show the touch pointer, go to Control Panel → Pen and Touch and clicking on the Touch tab. In the Touch action
section, select the option Show visual feedback when touching the screen

Troubleshooting Your Computer
5
You can troubleshoot your computer using indicators like Diagnostic Lights, Beep Codes, and Error Messages during the
operation of the computer.
Enhanced Pre-boot System Assessment (ePSA)
The ePSA is a diagnostic utility available on your computer. This utility includes a series of tests for a computer's
hardware. You can run these tests even if the computer lacks any media (hard drive, optical drive, etc.). If a ePSA-tested
component fails, the system displays an error code and generates a beep code.
Features
•
Graphical User Interface
•
Automatic Default Operation- runs test on all devices, allowing a user to interrupt and select any device
•
Checks the Master Boot Record for readiness to boot into a full OS environment
•
Tablet panel test
•
Video memory test
•
Battery test
•
Charger test
•
Event log scan
•
Multiprocessor cache test
Running the ePSA Diagnostic Utility
NOTE: The following steps can be used to run the ePSA diagnostic utility in DOS mode without using an external
keyboard.
1.
Power on the system and immediately press the <Power> + <Start> buttons simultaneously for a second.
35
2.
The computer will start up and begin running the ePSA utility automatically.
3.
During the testing process, you will be prompted to answer a YES or NO question. To respond, press Volume Up =
YES or Volume Down = NO.
36
4.
Press the Security Button (<Ctrl> + <Alt> + <Del>) to click OK once the tests are completed.
5.
The volume up and down buttons can also be used as the <Tab> key when switching between options.
Beep Codes
The computer may emit a series of beeps during start-up if the display cannot show errors or problems. These series of
beeps, called beep codes, identify various problems. The delay between each beep is 300 ms, the delay between each
set of beeps is 3 seconds, and the beep sound lasts 300 ms. After each beep and each set of beeps, the BIOS should
detect if the user presses the power button. If so, BIOS will jump out from looping and execute the normal shutdown
process and power system.
