Safety Precautions
The following safety precautions will increase the life of the Eee
PC. Follow all precautions and instructions. Except as described in
this manual, refer all servicing to qualified personnel. Do not use
damaged power cords, accessories, or other peripherals. Do not use
strong solvents such as thinners, benzene, or other chemicals on or
near the surface.
Disconnect the AC power and remove the battery pack(s)
before cleaning. Wipe the Eee PC using a clean cellulose sponge
or chamois cloth dampened with a solution of nonabrasive
detergent and a few drops of warm water and remove any extra
moisture with a dry cloth.
DO NOT place on
uneven or unstable work
surfaces. Seek servicing
if the casing has been
damaged.
DO NOT place or drop
objects on top and do
not shove any foreign
objects into the Eee PC.
DO NOT expose to dirty
or dusty environments.
DO NOT operate during a
gas leak.
DO NOT expose to
strong magnetic or
electrical fields.
DO NOT press or touch
the display panel. DO NOT
place together with small
items that may scratch or
enter the Eee PC.
DO NOT expose to or
use near liquids, rain,
or moisture. DO NOT
use the modem during
electrical storms.
DO NOT leave the Eee PC
on your lap or any part
of the body to prevent
discomfort or injury from
heat exposure.
Battery safety warning:
DO NOT throw the
battery in fire. DO NOT
short circuit the contacts.
DO NOT disassemble the
battery.

SAFE TEMP: This Eee PC
should only be used
in environments with
ambient temperatures
between 5°C (41°F) and
35°C (95°F)
INPUT RATING: Refer to
the rating label on the
bottom of the Eee PC
and be sure that your
power adapter complies
with the rating.
DO NOT carry or cover a
Eee PC that is powered
ON with any materials
that will reduce air
circulation such as a
carrying bag.
Incorrect installation
of battery may cause
explosion and damage
the Eee PC.
DO NOT throw the Eee PC in municipal waste. This product
has been designed to enable proper reuse of parts and
recycling. The symbol of the crossed out wheeled bin
indicates that the product (electrical, electronic equipment
and mercury-containing button cell battery) should not
be placed in municipal waste. Check local regulations for
disposal of electronic products.

Transportation Precautions
To prepare the Eee PC for transport, you should close the display
panel to protect the keyboard and display panel.
The Eee PC’s surface is easily dulled if not properly cared for. Be
careful not to rub or scrape surfaces when transporting your Eee PC.
You can put your Eee PC in a carrying case for protection from dirt,
water, shock, and scratches.
For the model that comes with a hard disk drive, you should
turn it OFF and disconnect all external peripherals to prevent
damage to the connectors when you prepare for transport. The
hard disk drive’s head retracts when the power is turned OFF
to prevent scratching of the hard disk surface during transport.
Never transport it while the power is still ON.
Charging Your Batteries
If you intend to use battery power, be sure to fully charge your
battery pack and any optional battery packs before going on long
trips. Remember that the power adapter charges the battery pack as
long as it is plugged into the computer and an AC power source. Be
aware that it takes much longer to charge the battery pack when the
Eee PC is in use.
Airplane Precautions
Contact your airline if you want to use the Eee PC on the airplane.
Most airlines have restrictions for using electronic devices. Most
airlines allow electronic use only between and not during takeoffs
and landings.
There are three main types of airport security devices: X-ray
machines (used on items placed on conveyor belts), magnetic
detectors (used on people walking through security checks),
and magnetic wands (hand-held devices used on people or
individual items). You can send your Eee PC and diskettes
through airport X-ray machines. However, it is recommended
that you do not send your Eee PC or diskettes through airport
magnetic detectors or expose them to magnetic wands.

Power System
Using AC Power
The Eee PC power comprises two parts, the power adapter and
the battery power system. The power adapter converts AC power
from a wall outlet to the DC power required by the Eee PC. Your Eee
PC comes with a universal AC-DC adapter for connection to any
100V-120V as well as 220V-240V outlets without setting switches or
using power converters. Different countries may require an adapter
to connect the provided USstandard AC power cord to a
different standard. Most hotels
will provide universal outlets to
support different power cords as
well as voltages. It is always best
to ask an experienced traveler
about AC outlet voltages before
travelling.
With the AC power cord connected to the AC-DC converter, connect
the AC power cord to an AC outlet (preferably with surge-protection)
and then connect the DC plug to the Eee PC. Connecting the AC-DC
adapter to the AC outlet first allows you to test the AC outlet’s power
and the AC-DC converter itself for compatibility problems before
connecting the DC power to the Eee PC. The power indicator on the
adapter (if available) will light if the power is within accepted ranges.
THE POWER ADAPTER MAY BECOME WARM TO HOT WHEN IN
USE. BE SURE NOT TO COVER THE ADAPTER AND KEEP IT AWAY
FROM YOUR BODY.
This Eee PC may come with either a two or three-prong plug
depending on territory to fit your wall outlet. If a three-prong
plug is provided, you must use a grounded AC outlet or use a
properly grounded adapter to ensure safe operation of the Eee
PC.
3-2
Downloaded from LpManual.com Manuals
Chapter 3: Getting Started
Damage may occur if you use a different adapter to power the
Eee PC or use the Eee PC’s adapter to power other electrical
devices. If there is smoke, burning scent, or extreme heat coming
from the AC-DC adapter, seek servicing. Seek servicing if you
suspect a faulty AC-DC adapter. You may damage both your
battery pack(s) and the Eee PC with a faulty AC-DC adapter.
Using Battery Power
The Eee PC is designed to work with a removable battery pack. The
battery pack consists of a set of battery cells housed together. A fully
charged pack will provide several hours of battery life. Additional
battery packs are optional and can be purchased separately through
an Eee PC retailer.
Remember to fully charge the battery before first use and
whenever it is depleted to prolong battery life. The battery
reaches its maximum capacity after a few full charging and
discharging cycles.
Installing and Removing the Battery Pack

Your Eee PC may not have its battery pack installed. If not, use the
following
procedures to install the battery pack.

Never attempt3 to remove the battery pack while the Eee PC is
turned ON, as this may result in the loss of working data.

Battery Care
The Eee PC’s battery pack, like all rechargeable batteries, has a limit
on the number times it can be recharged. The battery pack’s useful
life will depend on your environment temperature, humidity, and
how your Eee PC is used. It is ideal that the battery be used in a
temperature range between 5˚C and 35˚C (41˚F and 95˚F). You
must also take into account that the Eee PC’s internal temperature
is higher than the outside temperature. Any temperatures above or
below this range will shorten the life of the battery. But in any case,
the battery pack’s usage time will eventually decrease and a new
battery pack must be purchased from an authorized dealer for this
Eee PC. Because batteries also have a shelf life, it is not recommended
to buy extras for storing.
For safety reasons, DO NOT throw the battery in
fire, DO NOT short circuit the contacts, and DO NOT
disassemble the battery. If there is any abnormal
operation or damage to the battery pack caused
by impact, turn OFF the Eee PC and contact an
authorized service center.
Power Mode
Your Eee PC is equipped with a smart power system. The powersaving Battery mode lowers down the CPU frequency and decreases
the power consumption to maximize the battery life. The AC mode
enables the CPU to run at the full speed and to obtain the best
performance. When applying or removing the power adapter, the AC
mode and Battery mode will be shown on the display as a reminder.
