LCD screen
Notes
LCDscreen
High-quality TFT displays are installed in notebooks from Fujitsu Technology Solutions GmbH. For
technical reasons, TFT monitors are manufactured for a specific resolution. An optimal, clear
picture can only be ensured with the correct resolution intended for the relevant TFT monitor. A
monitor resolution which differs from the specification can result in an unclear picture.
The screen resolution of the LCD monitor of your notebook is optimally set at the factory.
The standard of production techniques today cannot guarantee an absolutely fault-free screen
display. A few isolated constant lit or unlit pixels (picture elements) may be present. The maximum
permitted number of pixels faults is stipulated in the international standard ISO 9241-3 (Class II).
Example:
A monitor with a resolution of 1280 x 800 has 1280 x 800 = 1024000 pixels. Each pixel consists of
three subpixels (red, green and blue), so there are almost 3 million subpixels in total. According to
ISO 9241-3 (class II), a maximum of 2 light and 2 dark pixels and an additional 5 light or 10 dark
subpixels or a corresponding mix may be defective (1 light subpixel counts as 2 dark subpixels).
Pixel
Subpixel
Cluster
A pixel consists of 3 subpixels, normally red, green and
blue. A pixel is the smallest element that can be generated
by complete functionality of the display.
A subpixel is a separately addressable internal structure
within a pixel that enhances the pixel function.
A cluster contains two or more defective pixels or
subpixels in a 5 x 5 pixel block.
Background lighting
TFT monitors are operated with background lighting. The luminosity of the background
lighting can decrease during the period of use of the notebook. However, you can
set the brightness of your monitor individually.
Synchronising the display on the LCD screen and an external monitor
For more information, please refer to the chapter "Key combinations", Page 45
under "Display output, switch between".
Ambient light sensor
If your notebook was shipped with the Windows 7 operating system, the screen brightness is
regulated by means of the ambient light sensor and depending on the respective light conditions.
This results in optimum readability and longer battery life at the same time.

handwriting recognition also allow you to write characters directly on the screen with
the pen. You can also use the pen as a drawing tool.
The notebook pen is retained securely in the pen slot. This ensures that the pen cannot be
lost, regardless of whether you use the notebook as a Tablet PC or as a notebook, or transport
it while travelling. Always replace the pen in its slot when you are not using it.
The notebook is supplied with a pen cord which you can attach to the eyelets
on the pen and on the notebook.

Working with the notebook
Only use the pen provided with your notebook. Do not use substitute pen tips
that were not specially designed for your notebook. Replace the stylus tip if it
is worn. The warranty does not cover a scratched screen.
While writing, you should take care not to scratch the surface of the
display (e.g. with a wristwatch or bracelet).
The pen of your notebook is an electronic instrument which can be damaged
if used incorrectly. Handle the pen with care.
The following list contains guidelines for proper pen handling:
•
•
•
•
Do not gesture with the pen.
Do not use the pen as a pointer.
Never use the pen on any other surface than the screen of your notebook.
Do not try to turn the thumb grip on the pen. The thumb grip is used to
place the pen in its slot and to take it out of the slot.
• Never store the pen with the tip bearing the weight of the pen (e.g. with the tip down
in a pen holder). If the pen is stored with the tip pointing down, this may have
an adverse effect on the pen mechanism (particularly under high temperatures).
In this case the pen tip may react as though it is constantly being pressed down.
To avoid damage, the pen should be stored in the pen slot when not in use.
The pen can be influenced by electromagnetic fields (cursor quivers or
jumps). There may be a few areas on the screen where the cursor quivers
slightly in spite of pressing the pen down firmly.
The screen responds to entries made with the tip of the finger or the pen when the tip
of the finger or the pen is in direct contact with the screen.
You can use the pen to perform all the functions for which you would otherwise use a mouse.
In addition, you can conveniently delete hand-written pen entries using the pen.

Replacing the pen tip
With use, the pen tip may become worn or may pick up foreign particles that can scratch the screen.
A damaged or worn tip may not move freely, causing unpredictable results when using the pen.
If problems like these occur with your pen, you should replace the pen tip. To do
this, use the pen tip removal tool included with your pen.
► Position the tip in the gap between the two
ends of the tool to remove the tip.
► Pinch the two ends of the tip changer
together so that the tip is firmly clasped (1),
then pull it from the barrel.
► Use one of the new tips that were supplied
with your pen to replace the tip. Insert
the flat end of the tip into the barrel and
push it in firmly until it is in place.

Battery
The notebook battery can only be charged, when the ambient temperature
is between 5°C and max. 35°C.
You can charge the battery by connecting the notebook to the mains adapter
(see "Mains adapter connecting", Page 18).
You can increase the life of your battery by allowing it to fully discharge before recharging it again.
To do this, leave your notebook turned on while operated by the battery. Once the battery is running
low, you will hear a warning alarm. If you do not connect the mains adapter within five minutes of
the warning alarm described above sounding, your notebook will automatically switch off.
monitoring the battery charging level
Batterystatusmeter
Battery
Windows also has a "Battery status meter" in the taskbar for monitoring the battery capacity. When
you place the mouse pointer on the battery symbol, the system displays the battery status.
The battery capacity can be monitored using an indicator which shows the current state
of charge. Use the following menu to enable this feature:

The indicator is then displayed in the task bar as a battery symbol. When you place the
mouse pointer on the battery symbol, the system displays the battery state of charge. Please
refer to the Help facility of the operating system for more information.

Battery
Keep the battery pack between 0°C and +30°C. The lower the temperature at which
the batteries are stored, the lower the rate of self-discharge.
If you will be storing batteries for a longer period (longer than two months),
the battery charge level should be approx. 30 %. To prevent exhaustive
discharge which would permanently damage the battery, check the level
of charge of the battery at regular intervals.
To be able to make use of the optimal charging capacity of the batteries, the battery
should be completely discharged and then fully recharged.
If you do not use the batteries for long periods, remove them from the
notebook. Never store the batteries in the device.

Handling data carriers
Handling
Observe the following guidelines when handling data carriers:
•
•
Avoid touching the surface of a data carrier. Only handle data carriers by their edges.
Always store data carriers in their cases. This will protect the data carrier against
being covered in dust, scratched or damaged in any other way.
• Protect your data carriers against dust, mechanical vibrations and direct sunlight.
• Avoid storing a data carrier in areas subject to high temperatures or humidity.
You may use both 8-cm and 12-cm data carriers in the optical drive.
When using a data carrier of lesser quality, vibrations and reading errors may occur.
CD/DVD indicator
CD/DVDindicator
The CD/DVD indicator flashes when a data carrier is inserted. The indicator goes out when
the drive is ready for reading. The indicator lights up when the drive is being accessed.
You may only remove the data carrier when the indicator is unlit.
If the CD/DVD indicator does not go out after a data carrier has been inserted, but
instead continues to flash, this means that the drive cannot access the data carrier.
Either the data carrier is damaged or dirty or you are using a data
carrier that the drive cannot read.

Smart Security API 4.1 is middleware which supports the entire
range of mobile and stationary clients from Fujitsu Technology
Solutions. Independent of the TPM hardware, it is needed
by everyone who uses a PKI Smart Security environment for
identification purposes.
BitLocker Drive Encryption (BDE) is a feature of Microsoft® Vista
Enterprise and Ultimate Editions for encryption of the hard disk
drive. Here, BitLocker uses the TPM for the storage of the recovery
data which are used for decryption of the partition.
It is also possible to use BitLocker without TPM and only to use
the USB dongle for storing the crypto key. This option is mainly of
interest if Vista is installed on a computer on which TPM is not
installed or an older version (before Version 1.2) is installed.
For BitLocker to work, you must have set up at least two partitions
on your hard drive. The first partition contains the boot information.
The second, larger partition is encrypted and contains the operating
system as well as the user data.
Important: The partitions must be set up before Windows Vista
is installed.

Troubleshooting and tips
Help if problems occur
Should you at any time have a problem with your computer that you can’t solve
yourself, in many cases you can quickly solve it by using the SystemDiagnostics
program which is pre-installed on your computer.
The SystemDiagnostics program is already installed on devices which were
delivered with a Windows operating system.
► To start the SystemDiagnostics program, click on Startsymbol - Program - Fujitsu - SystemDiagnostics.
► If a problem is found during a test run, the SystemDiagnostics program outputs
a code (e.g. DIFS-Code YXXX123456789123).
► Make a note of the output DIFS code and the identity number of your device. The identity
number can be found on the type rating plate on the back of the casing.
► For further clarification of the problem, contact the Service Desk for your country (see the Service
Desk list or visit the Internet at "http://ts.fujitsu.com/support/servicedesk.html"). When you do
this, please have ready the identity number and serial number of your system and the DIFS code.

a standard modular jack type USOC RJ-11C which is FCC Part 68 compliant and a line cord
between the modem and the telephone network with a minimum of 26AWG.
The REN is used to determine the number of devices that you may connect to your telephone
line and still have all of those devices ring when your number is called. Too many devices
on one line may result in failure to ring in response to an incoming call. In most, but not all,
areas the sum of the RENs of all of the devices should not exceed five (5). To be certain
of the number of devices you may connect to your line, as determined by the RENs, contact
your local telephone company. If this equipment causes harm to the telephone network, your
telephone company may discontinue your service temporarily. If possible, they will notify you
in advance. If advance notice is not practical they will notify you as soon as possible. You
will also be advised of your right to file a complaint with the FCC.
This fax modem also complies with fax branding requirements per FCC Part 68.
Your telephone company will probably ask you to disconnect this equipment from the telephone
network until the problem is corrected and you are sure that the equipment is not malfunctioning.
This equipment may not be used on coin-operated telephones provided by your telephone
company. Connection to party lines is subject to state tariffs. Contact your state’s public utility
commission, public service commission or corporation commission for more information.
This equipment includes automatic dialing capability. When programming and/or
making test calls to emergency numbers:
• Remain on the line and briefly explain to the dispatcher the reason for the call.
• Perform such activities in off-peak hours, such as early morning or late evening.
