General Precautions
TOSHIBA computers are designed to optimize safety, minimize strain and
withstand the rigors of portability. However, certain precautions should be
observed to further reduce the risk of personal injury or damage to the
computer.
Be certain to read the general precautions below and to note the cautions
included in the text of the manual.
Provide adequate ventilation
Always make sure your computer and AC adaptor have adequate
ventilation and are protected from overheating when the power is turned on
or when an AC adaptor is connected to a power outlet (even if your
computer is in Sleep Mode). In this condition, observe the following:
■ Never cover your computer or AC adaptor with any object.
■ Never place your computer or AC adaptor near a heat source, such as
an electric blanket or heater.
■ Never cover or block the air vents including those located at the base of
the computer.
■ Always operate your computer on a hard flat surface. Using your
computer on a carpet or other soft material can block the vents.
■ Always provide sufficient space around the computer.
■ Overheating your computer or AC adaptor could cause system failure,
computer or AC adaptor damage or a fire, possibly resulting in serious
injury.
Creating a computer-friendly environment
Place the computer on a flat surface that is large enough for the computer
and any other items you are using, such as a printer.
Leave enough space around the computer and other equipment to provide
adequate ventilation. Otherwise, they may overheat.
To keep your computer in prime operating condition, protect your work area
from:
■ Dust, moisture, and direct sunlight.
■ Equipment that generates a strong electromagnetic field, such as
stereo speakers (other than speakers that are connected to the
computer) or speakerphones.
■ Rapid changes in temperature or humidity and sources of temperature
change such as air conditioner vents or heaters.
■ Extreme heat, cold, or humidity.
■ Liquids and corrosive chemicals.
User’s Manual

Stress injury
Carefully read the Instruction Manual for Safety and Comfort. It contains
information on the prevention of stress injuries to your hands and wrists
that can be caused by extensive keyboard use. It also includes information
on work space design, posture and lighting that can help reduce physical
stress.
Heat injury
■ Avoid prolonged physical contact with the computer. If the computer is
used for long periods, its surface can become very warm. While the
temperature will not feel hot to the touch, if you maintain physical
contact with the computer for a long time, for example if you rest the
computer on your lap or if you keep your hands on the palm rest, your
skin might suffer a low-heat injury.
■ If the computer has been used for a long time, avoid direct contact with
the metal plate supporting the various interface ports as this can
become hot.
■ The surface of the AC adaptor can become hot when in use but this
condition does not indicate a malfunction. If you need to transport the
AC adaptor, you should disconnect it and let it cool before moving it.
■ Do not lay the AC adaptor on a material that is sensitive to heat as the
material could become damaged.
Pressure or impact damage
Do not apply heavy pressure to the computer or subject it to any form of
strong impact as this can damage the computer's components or otherwise
cause it to malfunction.
Mobile phones
Please be aware that the use of mobile phones can interfere with the audio
system. The operation of the computer will not be impaired in any way, but
it is recommended that a minimum distance of 30cm is maintained between
the computer and a mobile phone that is in use.
Instruction Manual for Safety and Comfort
All important information on the safe and proper use of this computer is
described in the enclosed Instruction Manual for Safety and Comfort. Be
sure to read it before using the computer.

you purchased.
Getting Started
■ All users should be sure to read the section Starting up for the first time.
■ Be sure to read the enclosed Instruction Manual for Safety and Comfort
for information on the safe and proper use of this computer. It is
intended to help you be more comfortable and productive while using a
notebook computer. By following the recommendations in it you may
reduce your chance of developing a painful or disabling injury to your
hand, arms, shoulders or neck.
This section provides basic information to start using your computer. It
covers the following topics:
■ Connecting the AC adaptor
■ Opening the display
■ Turning on the power
■ Starting up for the first time
■ Turning off the power
■ Restarting the computer
■ Use a virus-check program and make sure it is updated regularly.
■ Never format storage media without checking its content - formatting
destroys all stored data.
■ It is a good idea to periodically back up the internal hard disk drive or
other main storage device to external media. General storage media is
not durable or stable over long periods of time and under certain
conditions may result in data loss.
User’s Manual
1-2
■ Before you install a device or application, save any data in memory to
the hard disk drive or other storage media. Failure to do so may result
in the loss of data.
Connecting the AC adaptor
Attach the AC adaptor when you need to charge the battery or you want to
operate from AC power. It is also the fastest way to get started, because
the battery pack will need to be charged before you can operate from
battery power.
The AC adaptor can automatically adjust to any voltage ranging from 100 to
240 volts and to a frequency of either 50 or 60 hertz, enabling you to use
this computer in almost all country/region. The adaptor converts AC power
to DC power and reduces the voltage supplied to this computer.
■ Always use the TOSHIBA AC adaptor that was included with your
computer, or use AC adaptors specified by TOSHIBA to avoid any risk
of fire or other damage to the computer. Use of an incompatible AC
adaptor could cause fire or damage to the computer possibly resulting
in serious injury. TOSHIBA assumes no liability for any damage caused
by use of an incompatible adaptor.
■ Never plug the AC adaptor into a power source that does not
correspond to both the voltage and the frequency specified on the
regulatory label of the unit. Failure to do so could result in a fire or
electric shock, possibly resulting in serious injury.
■ Always use or purchase power cables that comply with the legal voltage
and frequency specifications and requirements in the country of use.
Failure to do so could result in a fire or electric shock, possibly resulting
in serious injury.
■ The supplied power cord conforms to safety rules and regulations in the
region the product is bought and should not be used outside this region.
For use in other regions, please buy power cords that conform to safety
rules and regulations in the particular region.
■ Do not use a 3-pin to 2-pin conversion plug.
■ When you connect the AC adaptor to the computer, always follow the
steps in the exact order as described in the User’s Manual. Connecting
the power cable to a live electrical outlet should be the last step
otherwise the adaptor DC output plug could hold an electrical charge
and cause an electrical shock or minor bodily injury when touched. As a
general safety precaution, avoid touching any metal parts.
■ Never place your computer or AC adaptor on a wooden surface,
furniture, or any other surface that could be marred by exposure to heat
since the computer base and AC adaptor's surface increase in
temperature during normal use.
■ Always place your computer or AC adaptor on a flat and hard surface
that is resistant to heat damage.
Refer to the enclosed Instruction Manual for Safety and Comfort for
detailed precautions and handling instructions.

where electronic devices are regulated or controlled, always completely
shut down the computer. This includes turning off any wireless
communication functionalities, and cancelling settings that reactivate the
computer automatically, such as a timer recording function. Failure to
completely shut down the computer in this way could allow the operating
system to reactivate and run pre-programmed tasks or preserve unsaved
data, which could interfere with aviation or other systems, possibly causing
serious injury.

Using the TOSHIBA Sleep Utility
This utility displays whether the Sleep and Charge function is enabled or
disabled and shows the positions of USB ports that support the Sleep and
Charge function. It also displays the remaining battery capacity.
The TOSHIBA Sleep Utility is only supported by Satellite
L770/L775/L770D/L775D/satellite Pro L770/L775/L770D/L775D models.
Sleep and Charge
Your computer can supply USB bus power (DC5V) to the USB port even
when the power of the computer is turned OFF. "Power OFF" includes
Sleep Mode, Hibernation Mode or shutdown state.
This function can be used for ports that support the Sleep and Charge
function (hereinafter called "compatible ports").
Compatible ports are USB ports that have the ( ) symbol icon.
You can use the Sleep and Charge function to charge certain USBcompatible external devices such as mobile phones or portable digital
music players.
However, the Sleep and Charge function may not work with certain external
devices even if they are compliant with the USB specification. In those
cases, turn the power of the computer ON to charge the device.
■ When Sleep and Charge function is enabled, USB bus power (DC5V)
will be supplied to compatible ports even when the power of the
computer is turned OFF. USB bus power (DC5V) is similarly supplied to
the external devices which are connected to the compatible ports.
However, some external devices cannot be charged solely by supplying
USB bus power (DC5V). As for the specifications of the external
devices, please contact the device manufacturer or check the
specifications of the external devices thoroughly before use.
■ Using the sleep and charge function to charge external devices will take
longer than charging the devices with their own chargers.
■ If Sleep and Charge function is enabled, the computer’s battery will
discharge during hibernation or when the computer is turned off. It is
recommended that you connect the AC adaptor to the computer when
enabling the Sleep and Charge function.
■ External devices connected to the USB bus power (DC5V) function that
interfaces with the power ON/OFF of the computer may always be in an
operational state.
■ When there is a current overflow of the external devices connected to
the compatible ports, USB bus power (DC5V) supply may be stopped
for safety reasons.
User’s Manual

■ When Sleep and Charge function is enabled, the USB Wakeup function
does not work for compatible ports. In that case, if there is a USB port
that does not have the Sleep and Charge function-compatible icon ( ),
attach the mouse or keyboard to it. If all USB ports have the Sleep and
Charge function-compatible icon ( ), change to disable Sleep and
Charge function. The USB Wakeup function will now work, but the
Sleep and Charge function will be disabled.
Metal paper clips or hair pins/clips will generate heat if they come into
contact with USB ports. Do not allow USB ports to come into contact with
metal products, for example when carrying the computer in your bag.
Starting the TOSHIBA Sleep Utility

Power supply mode settings
Your PC has multiple charging modes so that many different USB devices
can be supported for Sleep and Charge function. Auto Mode (Default) is
suitable for a wide range of digital audio players.
However, determining which mode is suitable for your USB device is
unknown without trying. Try each mode, using the following procedure,
from Auto Mode to Alternate Mode(*1) to find the suitable mode for your
USB device to charge.
This function may not be able to be used with some connected external
devices even if the appropriate mode is selected. In this situation, clear the
"Enable Sleep and Charge" check box and stop using this function.
*1. Some computers may not support all modes.
Battery Settings
This utility can be used to specify the lower limit of remaining battery life for
Sleep and Charge. Move the slider bar to specify the lower limit. If the
remaining battery life falls below the setting, the Sleep and Charge function
will be stopped.
Using the TOSHIBA Face Recognition
TOSHIBA Face Recognition uses a face verification library to verify the
User’s Manual
4-9
face data of users when they log in to Windows. The user can thus avoid
having to enter a password or the like, which makes the login process
easier.
■ TOSHIBA Face Recognition does not guarantee the correct
identification of a user. Changes to the likeness of a registrant, such as
hair style changes, wearing a cap, or wearing glasses may effect the
recognition rates when such changes occur after the registrant had
registered.
■ TOSHIBA Face Recognition may incorrectly recognize faces that are
similar to a registrant.
■ For high security purposes, TOSHIBA Face Recognition is not a
suitable substitute for Windows passwords. When security is a high
priority, use your established Windows passwords to log in.
■ Bright background light and/or shadows may prevent a registrant from
being recognized correctly. In that case, log in using your Windows
password. If recognition of a registrant fails repeatedly, refer to your
computer documentation to learn ways to improve recognition
performance.
■ TOSHIBA Face Recognition records face data in a log when face
recognition fails. When transferring ownership or disposing of your
computer, please uninstall the application or delete all the logs created
by the application. For details on how to do this, see help file.
■ TOSHIBA Face Recognition can be used only in Windows Vista and
Windows 7.

will be completely secure or error-free. TOSHIBA does not guarantee that
the face recognition utility will accurately screen out unauthorized users at
all times. TOSHIBA is not liable for any failure or damage that might arise
out of the use of the face recognition software or utility.

Battery
This section explains battery types, use, recharging methods and handling.
Battery types
The computer has different types of batteries.
Battery pack
When the AC adaptor is not connected, the computer's main power source
is a removable lithium ion battery pack, also referred to in this manual as
the main battery. You can purchase additional battery packs for extended
use of the computer away from an AC power source although you should
not change the battery pack while the AC adaptor is connected.
Before you remove the battery pack, save your data and shut down the
computer, or place the computer into Hibernation Mode. Please be aware
that, when placing the computer into Hibernation Mode, the contents of
memory will be saved to the hard disk drive, although for safety sake, it is
best to also save your data manually.
Real Time Clock (RTC) battery
The Real Time Clock (RTC) battery provides power for the internal real
time clock and calendar function and also maintains the system
configuration while the computer is turned off. If the RTC battery becomes
completely discharged, the system will lose this information and the real
time clock and calendar will stop working - in this instance the following
message will be displayed when you turn on the power:
S
**** RTC Power Failure ****
Check system. Then press [F2] key.

Care and use of the battery pack
This section provides the important safety precautions in order to handle
your battery pack properly.
Refer to the enclosed Instruction Manual for Safety and Comfort for
detailed precautions and handling instructions.
■ Make sure the battery is securely installed in the computer before
attempting to charge the battery pack. Improper installation could
generate smoke or fire, or cause the battery pack to rupture.
■ Keep the battery pack out of reach of infants and children. It can cause
injury.
■ The lithium ion battery pack can explode if not replaced, used, handled
or disposed of properly. Dispose of the battery as required by local
ordinances or regulations. Use only batteries recommended by
TOSHIBA as replacements.
■ The computer's RTC battery is a lithium battery and should be replaced
only by your dealer or by a TOSHIBA service representative. The
battery can explode if not properly replaced, used, handled or disposed.
Dispose of the battery as required by local ordinances or regulations.
■ Charge the battery pack only in an ambient temperature between 5 and
35 degrees Celsius. Otherwise, the electrolyte solution might leak,
battery pack performance might deteriorate and the battery life might be
shortened.
■ Never install or remove the battery pack without first turning off the
power and disconnecting the AC adaptor. Never remove the battery
pack while the computer is in Sleep Mode. Data could be lost.
Never remove the battery pack while the Wake-up on LAN function is
enabled. Data will be lost. Before you remove a battery pack, disable the
Wake-up on LAN function.
Charging the batteries
When the power in the battery pack becomes low, the DC IN/Battery or
Battery indicator will blink amber to indicate that only a few minutes of
battery power remain. If you continue to use the computer while the DC
IN/Battery or Battery indicator blinks, the computer will enable Hibernation
Mode so that you do not lose any data, and automatically turn itself off.
You must recharge a battery pack when it becomes discharged.
Procedures
To recharge a battery pack while it is installed in the computer, connect the
AC adaptor to the DC IN 19V jack and plug the other end into a working
outlet - the DC IN/Battery or Battery indicator will glow amber while the
battery is being charged.
User’s Manual
5-7
Use only the computer connected to an AC power source or optional
TOSHIBA Battery charger to charge the battery pack. Never attempt to
charge the battery pack with any other charger.
Time
Refer to User Information Guide about Charging time.
Battery charging notice
The battery may not begin charging immediately under the following
conditions:
■ The battery is extremely hot or cold (if the battery is extremely hot, it
might not charge at all). To ensure the battery charges to its full
capacity, you should charge it at room temperature of between 5°C to
35°C (41°F to 95°F).
■ The battery is nearly completely discharged. In this instance you should
leave the AC adaptor connected for a few minutes and the battery
should begin charging.
The DC IN/Battery or Battery indicator may show a rapid decrease in
battery operating time when you try to charge a battery under the following
conditions:
■ The battery has not been used for a long time.
■ The battery has completely discharged and been left in the computer for
a long time.
■ A cool battery is installed in a warm computer.
In such cases you should follow the steps as detailed below:
1. Fully discharge the battery by leaving it in the computer with the power
on until the system automatically turns itself off.
2. Connect the AC adaptor to the DC IN 19V jack of the computer, and to
a wall outlet that is supplying power.
3. Charge the battery until the DC IN/Battery indicator glows green or
Battery indicator glows white.
Repeat these steps two or three times until the battery recovers normal
capacity.
Monitoring battery capacity
Remaining battery power can be monitored using the following methods.
■ Clicking the battery icon on the Taskbar
■ Via the Battery Status in the Windows Mobility Center window
User’s Manual
5-8
■ You should wait at least 16 seconds after turning on the computer
before trying to monitor the remaining operating time. This is because
the computer needs this time to check the battery's remaining capacity
and then calculate the remaining operating time, based on this together
with the current power consumption.
■ Please be aware that the actual remaining operating time may differ
slightly from the calculated time.
■ With repeated discharges and recharges, the battery's capacity will
gradually decrease. In view of this it will be noted that an often used,
older battery will not operate for as long as a new battery even when
both are fully charged.
Maximizing battery operating time
A battery's usefulness depends on how long it can supply power on a
single charge, while how long the charge lasts in a battery depends on:
■ Processor speed
■ Screen brightness
■ System Sleep Mode
■ System Hibernation Mode
■ Display power off period
■ Hard disk drive power off period
■ How often and for how long you use the hard disk drive and external
disk(c) drives, for example, optical disc drive.
■ How much charge the battery contained to begin with.
■ How you use optional devices, such as a USB device, to which the
battery supplies power.
■ Whether you enable Sleep Mode, which can conserve battery power if
you are frequently turning the computer off and on.
■ Where you store your programs and data.
■ Whether you close the display panel when you are not using the
keyboard - closing the display saves power.
■ The environmental temperature - operating time decreases at low
temperatures.
■ The condition of the battery terminals - you should always ensure the
terminals stay clean by wiping them with a clean dry cloth before
installing the battery pack.
Batteries exhausted time
Refer to User Information Guide about Retaining time.
Extending battery life
To maximize the life of your battery packs:
User’s Manual
5-9
■ At least once a month, disconnect the computer from a power source
and operate it on battery power until the battery pack fully discharges.
Before doing so, follow the steps as detailed below.
1. Turn off the computer's power.
2. Disconnect the AC adaptor and turn on the computer's power - if it
does not turn on then go to Step 4.
3. Operate the computer on battery power for five minutes. If you find
that the battery pack has at least five minutes of operating time,
continue operating until the battery pack is fully discharged, however, if
the DC IN/Battery or Battery indicator blinks or there is some other
warning to indicate a low battery condition, go to Step 4.
4. Connect the AC adaptor to the DC IN 19V jack of the computer, and
to a wall outlet that is supplying power. The DC IN indicator should
glow white and the Battery indicator should glow amber (or DC
IN/Battery indicator should glow amber) to indicate that the battery
pack is being charged, however, in the event that DC IN indicator or
DC IN/Battery indicator does not glow this indicates that power is not
being supplied - check the connections for the AC adaptor and the
power cord.
5. Charge the battery pack until the Battery indicator glows white or
DC IN/Battery indicator glows green.
■ If you have extra battery packs, rotate their use.
■ If you will not be using the system for an extended period, for example
for more than one month, remove the battery pack from the computer.
■ Store spare battery packs in a cool dry place out of direct sunlight.
Replacing the battery pack
Please be aware that the battery pack is classified as a consumable item.
The operating life of the battery pack will gradually reduce through
repeated charging and discharging, and will need to be replaced when it
reaches the end of its operating life. In addition to this, you might also
replace a discharged battery pack with a charged spare when you are
operating your computer away from an AC power source for an extended
period of time.
This section explains how to remove and install the battery pack, and
begins with the removal process which is detailed through the following
steps.
■ Do not remove the battery pack while the computer is in Sleep Mode.
Data is stored in RAM, so if the computer loses power it could be lost.
■ In Hibernation Mode, data will be lost if you remove the battery pack or
disconnect the AC adaptor before the save is completed. Wait for the
Hard Disk Drive/Optical Disk Drive indicator to go out.
■ Do not touch the battery release latch while holding the computer or the
battery pack might fall out due to the unintentional release of the battery
release latch and cause injuries.

Troubleshooting
6 retpahC
TOSHIBA have designed this computer for durability, however, should
problems occur you are able to use the procedures detailed in this chapter
to help determine the cause.
All users should become familiar with this chapter as knowing what might
go wrong can help prevent problems from occurring in the first place.
Problem solving process
Resolving problems will be much easier if you observe the following
guidelines:
■ Stop immediately when you recognize a problem exists as taking further
action may result in data loss or damage, or you may destroy valuable
problem related information that can help solve the problem.
■ Observe what is happening - write down what the system is doing and
what actions you performed immediately before the problem occurred.
Make a screenshot of the current display.
Please also be aware that the questions and procedures described in this
chapter are meant only as a guide, they are not definitive problem solving
techniques. In reality many problems can be solved simply, but a few may
require help from TOSHIBA Support - if you find you need to consult others,
be prepared to describe the problem in as much detail as possible.
Preliminary checklist
You should always consider the simplest solution first - the items detailed in
this checklist are easy to fix and yet can cause what appears to be a
serious problem:
■ Make sure you turn on all peripheral devices before you turn on the
computer - this includes your printer and any other external device you
are using.
■ Before you attach an external device you should first turn the computer
off, then when you turn the computer back on again it will recognize the
new device.
■ Make sure all optional accessories are configured properly in the
computer's setup program and that all required driver software has
been loaded (please refer to the documentation included with the
User’s Manual
6-1
optional accessories for further information on its installation and
configuration).
■ Check all cables to ensure they are correctly and firmly attached to the
computer - loose cables can cause signal errors.
■ Inspect all connecting cables for loose wires and all connectors for
loose pins.
■ Check that your CD/DVD/BD media is correctly loaded
Always try to make detailed notes of your observations and keep them in a
permanent error log - this will help you to describe your problems to
TOSHIBA Support. In addition, if a problem recurs, the log you have made
will help to identify the problem faster.
Analyzing the problem
Sometimes the computer will give you clues that can help you identify why
it is malfunctioning. In view of this you should keep the following questions
in mind:
■ Which part of the computer is not operating properly - keyboard, hard
disk drive, display panel, touch pad, touch pad control buttons - as each
device will produce different symptoms.
■ Check the options within the operating system to ensure that its
configuration is set properly.
■ What appears on the display? Does it display any messages or random
characters? Make a screenshot of the current display and, if possible,
look up the messages in the documentation included with the computer,
software or operating system.
■ Check that all connecting cables are correctly and firmly attached as
loose cables can cause erroneous or intermittent signals.
■ Do any indicators light, if so, which ones, what color are they and do
they stay on or blink? Write down what you see.
■ Do you hear any beeps, if so how many, are they long or short and are
they high pitched or low pitched? In addition, is the computer making
any unusual noises? Write down what you hear.
Record your observations so you can describe them in detail to TOSHIBA
Support.
User’s Manual
6-2
Software
The problems may be caused by your software or
disk. If you cannot load a software package, the
media may be damaged or the program might be
corrupted - in these instances try loading another
copy of the software if possible.
If an error message appears while you are using a
software package you should refer to the
documentation supplied with it as this will usually
include a problem solving section or a summary of
error messages.
Next, you should check any error messages
against the operating system documentation.
Hardware
If you cannot find a software problem, you should
then check the setup and configuration of your
hardware. First run through the items in the
preliminary checklist as described previously then,
if you still cannot correct the problem, try to identify
the source - the next section provides checklists
for individual components and peripherals.
Before using a peripheral device or application software that is not an
authorized TOSHIBA part or product, make sure the device or software can
be used with your computer. Use of incompatible devices may cause injury
or may damage your computer.
If something goes wrong
Your program stops responding

Problem
Procedure
Battery doesn’t
charge when the AC
adaptor is attached
(Battery indicator or
DC IN/Battery
indicator does not
glow amber).
If the battery is completely discharged, it will not
begin charging immediately, in these instances you
should wait a few minutes before trying again. If the
battery still does not charge, you should check that
the power outlet the AC adaptor is connected to is
supplying power - this can be tested by plugging
another appliance into it.
Check whether the battery is hot or cold to the touch
- if so, it will not charge properly and should be
allowed to reach room temperature before you try
again.
Unplug the AC adaptor and remove the battery to
make sure its connecting terminals are clean - if
necessary wipe them with a soft dry cloth lightly
dipped in alcohol.
Connect the AC adaptor and replace the battery,
taking care to ensure that it is securely seated in the
computer.
(For Satellite L770/L775/L770D/L775D/Satellite Pro
L770/L775/L770D/L775D Models) Check the
Battery indicator - if it does not glow, allow the
computer to charge the battery for at least twenty
minutes. If the Battery indicator starts to glow after
this period, allow the battery to continue to charge
for at least another twenty minutes before turning
on the computer. However, if the indicator still does
not glow, the battery may be at the end of its
operating life and should be replaced. However, if
you do not believe the battery is at the end of its
operating life, you should speak to TOSHIBA
Support.
(For Satellite C670/C675/C670D/C675D/Satellite
Pro C670/C675/C670D Models) Check the DC
IN/Battery indicator - if it glows amber, charge the
battery until the DC IN/Battery indicator glows
green. If it glows green, disconnect the AC adaptor
and operate the computer. If the computer shuts
down, the battery may be at the end of its operating
life and should be replaced. However, if you do not
believe the battery is at the end of its operating life,
you should contact a TOSHIBA Support.

CPU performance in your computer product may vary from specifications
under the following conditions:
■ use of certain external peripheral products
■ use of battery power instead of AC power
■ use of certain multimedia, computer generated graphics or video

conditions. To avoid risk of lost data, always make back-up copies of data
by periodically storing it on an external storage medium. For optimum
performance, use your computer product only under recommended
conditions. Read additional restrictions in your product documentation.
Contact TOSHIBA technical service and support, refer to Troubleshooting
section in Chapter 6 Troubleshooting for more information.
64-Bit Computing
64-bit processors are designed to take advantage of 32 and 64 bit
computing.
64-bit computing requires that the following hardware and software
requirements are met:
■ 64-bit Operating System
■ 64-bit CPU, Chipset and BIOS (Basic Input/Output System)
■ 64-bit Device drivers
■ 64-bit applications
Certain device drivers and/or applications may not be compatible with a 64bit CPU and therefore may not function properly.
Memory (Main System)
Part of the main system memory may be used by the graphics system for
graphics performance and therefore reduce the amount of main system
memory available for other computing activities. The amount of main
system memory allocated to support graphics may vary depending on the
graphics system, applications utilized, system memory size and other
factors.
If your computer is configured with more than 3 GB memory, the memory
might be displayed as approximately 3 GB only (depending on the
computer’s hardware specifications).
This is correct because the operating system usually displays the available
memory instead of the physical memory (RAM) built into the computer.
Various system components (like the video adapter’s GPU and PCI devices
like Wireless LAN, etc.) require their own memory space. Since a 32-bit
operating system cannot address more than 4 GB of memory, these
system resources overlap the physical memory. It is a technical limitation
that the overlapped memory is not available to the operating system. Even
though some tools might display the actual physical memory built into your
computer, the memory available to the operating system will still be
approximately 3 GB only.
Computers configured with a 64-bit operating system can address 4 GB or
more of system memory.

Battery Life
Battery life may vary considerably depending on product model,
configuration, applications, power management settings and features
utilized, as well as the natural performance variations produced by the
design of individual components. Published battery life numbers are
achieved on select models and configurations tested by TOSHIBA at the
time of publication. Recharge time varies depending on usage. Battery may
not charge while computer is consuming full power.
After going through many charge and discharge cycles, the battery will lose
its ability to perform at maximum capacity and will need to be replaced.
This is a normal phenomenon for all batteries. To purchase a new battery
pack, see the accessories information that is shipped with your computer.
Hard Disk Drive (HDD) Capacity
1 Gigabyte (GB) means 109 = 1,000,000,000 bytes using powers of 10. The
computer operating system, however, reports storage capacity using
powers of 2 for the definition of 1 GB = 230 = 1,073,741,824 bytes, and
therefore shows less storage capacity. Available storage capacity will also
be less if the product includes one or more pre-installed operating systems,
such as Microsoft Operating System and/or pre-installed software
applications, or media content. Actual formatted capacity may vary.
LCD
Over a period of time, and depending on the usage of the computer, the
brightness of the LCD screen will deteriorate. This is an intrinsic
characteristic of LCD technology.
Maximum brightness is only available when operating in AC power mode.
Screen will dim when the computer is operated on battery power and you
may not be able to increase the brightness of the screen.
Graphics Processing Unit ("GPU")
Graphics processing unit ("GPU") performance may vary depending on
product model, design configuration, applications, power management
settings and features utilized. GPU performance is only optimized when
operating in AC power mode and may decrease considerably when
operating in battery power mode.
Total Available Graphics Memory is the total of, as applicable, Dedicated
Video Memory, System Video Memory and Shared System Memory.
Shared System Memory will vary depending on system memory size and
other factors.
