Using Your Computer for the First Time
This section gives you detailed information on using your computer for the first
time.
Attaching the AC Adapter
Your computer runs on power from the battery in the computer or from an
electrical outlet. The first time that you use your computer, fully charge the battery
by attaching the power cord to the computer and to an electrical outlet.
All batteries lose their charge if they sit unused for an
extended time period. When not used, battery can discharge
fully in 2 to 3 months. The battery may have discharged in the
time it took for the computer to go from the factory to you.
To attach the power cord:
1. Plug the AC adapter into the power connector on the back side of the computer
(Figure 5).
2. Connect the power cord to the AC adapter and then to an electrical outlet.
Power connector

Understanding POST
When you turn on your computer, a routine called POST (Power-On Self-Test)
automatically runs to test the computer components. Several messages appear on
the screen during POST.
Screen messages are built into the computer to report both normal and abnormal
system conditions. If an error message appears, take any action suggested in the
message. If the message identifies the error condition but does not suggest any
corrective action, write down the message and contact manufacturer or an
authorised service center for assistance. (See ”Troubleshooting” on page 111.)
Adjusting the LCD Display
You may wish to adjust the LCD (Liquid-Crystal Display) when you begin using
your computer. A TFT (Thin-Film Transistor) LCD does not require adjustment
for contrast because the contrast is set to remain at maximum.
To adjust the LCD:
• Press <Fn+Right Arrow> to increase the display brightness.
• Press <Fn+Left Arrow> to decrease the display brightness.
Turning Off Your Computer

Tips for Using Your Computer
The following information helps you avoid potential problems as you use your
computer:
Do not try to disassemble your computer. Opening the
system chassis voids your warranty. Only an authorised
manufacturer service center can replace or add any parts
inside the chassis.
• Follow all the instructions and cautions in your computer user documentation.
• The LCD has a polarized surface and can be damaged easily. To prevent
damage, avoid touching the screen.
• Use only approved AC adapters, auto adapters, memory modules and other
options.
• Because a notebook computer is small and has restricted air flow around
components, it is more likely to overheat than a desktop computer. A fan
inside your computer runs when needed to help eliminate heat. Make sure the
fan vent on the right side of your computer is not blocked when you use the
computer. (See Figure 2 on page 3 for the location of the vent.) Occasionally
check the vents and remove any accumulated dust on the outside.
Using Your Computer for the First Time 9
• Avoid using or storing the computer in extremely hot or cold areas, such as a
car on a hot day. Keep the computer away from heaters and out of direct
sunlight. Exposure to excessive heat may damage computer components.
If you have left your computer in a hot place, let it cool down slowly to room
temperature (with the LCD panel open) before using it.
• Do not remove the memory-module compartment door, or try to install a
memory module when the computer is on. (See ”Bottom View of Computer”
on page 4 for the location of the door.)
(For information on installing memory modules, see “Installing a Memory
Module” on page 105.)
• Set up your computer work area to avoid physical strain. Sit with your back
straight and supported by your chair. Adjust your chair or work table so that
your arms and wrists can remain in a relaxed position, parallel with the floor.
Avoid bending or twisting your wrists as you work. Your hands should “float”
slightly above the keyboard. Refer to a book on office ergonomics for more
information on setting up your work area.
• Take frequent breaks from working at the computer to rest your eyes and
stretch your muscles.
• Remember to save your data files frequently and to make backup copies of
your files.
Travelling with Your Computer
If you are travelling by air, follow these tips:
• Take the computer with you as carry-on luggage. Do not check the computer
with your baggage.
• Allow the computer and disks to go through the X-ray security devices. Do
not hand-carry disks through the walk-through metal detectors, which can
cause loss of data.
• Make sure that the battery is charged or the power cord is easily accessible.
You may be required to turn on the computer for airport security personnel.
• Be prepared to turn off the computer during take off and landing.
10 Using Your Computer for the First Time
Handling Spills
Do not spill anything on your computer. The best way to avoid spills is to avoid
eating and drinking around your computer. If you do spill something on your
computer, turn off your computer, unplug it immediately, and do the following:
• If you spill liquid on the keyboard, drain as much of the liquid from the
keyboard as possible. Be careful not to let the liquid drip onto the LCD panel.
Allow the system to dry for several days before trying to use it.
• If you spill liquid on an external keyboard or keypad, unplug it and drain as
much of the liquid as possible. Allow the keyboard to sit at room temperature
for a full day before trying to use it.
Sweet liquids leave a sticky residue that may jam the
keyboard despite your efforts to dry it.
• If you spill liquid on the LCD panel, clean it immediately with a soft cloth and
denatured alcohol. Do not use water, window cleaner, acetone, aromatic
solvent, or dry, rough towels to clean it.
Some liquids damage the polarized LCD screen. If your
screen is damaged, contact your authorized manufacturer’s
service center for a replacement.
Storing the Computer for Long Periods
If possible, leave the power cord connected to the computer and an electrical outlet
when the computer is not in use. This extends the life of the battery and keeps the
battery fully charged.
If you will not be using the computer for a long period of time (a month or more),
you should charge the battery until it is completely full. After you have done so,
remove the battery from the unit.
Using Your Computer for the First Time 11

Using the Hard Drive
Your computer includes a removable IDE (integrated drive electronics) hard drive.
The IDE hard drive can store the data and programs your computer uses. The drive
plugs into a connector on the system board.
Although the storage capacity of hard drives varies according to model, any hard
drive holds much more than a floppy disk does. Also, the computer reads and
works with a hard drive more rapidly than with a floppy disk.
Once information is saved on a hard drive, it remains there until it is overwritten.
Hard drive heads park automatically when you turn off your computer.
The hard drive that comes with your computer has already
been formatted. Do not format the hard drive. Doing so
destroys all data contained on the drive. If you need to format
a new drive, or want to erase all data on your existing hard
drive, refer to the manual for your operating system.
The drive in your computer maybe divided into partitions. The file allocation table
enables the partitions to locate files and directories.Your computer recognizes each
partition as a separate drive, for example, if a hard drive has two partitions, they
could be recognized as drive C and drive D.
Although Windows 98 can work with FAT-16 or FAT-32 (a 32-bit file allocation
table), your computer has been supplied with FAT-32. Older software that you
may have (16-bit software) may require FAT-16 to run. Similarly Windows NT
4.0 can use FAT-16 or NTFS (the Windows NT file system). There are utilities
included with Windows 98 and Windows NT 4.0 to convert from FAT-16 to FAT32 or NTFS, see the documentation included with your operating system for more
information.
Windows 2000 can use FAT16, FAT32 and NTFS.
It is not possible to convert from FAT-32 or NTFS to FAT-16
without reformatting your hard drive.

Using the Battery
Your computer uses a smart rechargeable Lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery pack for
power when the AC adapter is not attached to an electrical outlet. The smart battery
gives a accurate measurement of the current battery capacity which helps extend
operating time by enabling effective power management in operating systems that
take advantage of the accurate information supplied by the battery.
Charging the Battery
Your computer’s battery starts charging automatically when you connect the
power to the computer and to an electrical outlet. If the computer is off, the battery
charges faster than if the computer’s power is on.
Approximate charging times for the Li-Ion battery are
• 3 hours with the computer off.
• 5 hours with the computer on.
While the battery is charging normally, the battery charge light on the computer is
amber (See ”System Status Lights” on page 18 for the location of the battery
charge light). When the battery is fully charged, the light changes to green.
When you use a new battery pack for the first time or use a battery after a long
period of storage, the initial battery life is shorter than normal. Normal battery life
resumes after a few discharge-recharge cycles.
Follow these rules for charging your battery:
• A battery normally discharges power when not used for long periods of time.
Be sure to recharge the battery every two months when it is not in use.
• Make it a practice to discharge your battery fully before recharging the
battery. This can help extend the life of the battery.
• Do not attempt to charge the battery in temperatures of under 41o F (5o C) or
over 95o F (35oC.)
All batteries eventually wear out and lose the ability to hold a
charge. You may need to replace your battery pack after a
year of average usage.
34 Using the Battery
Safely Using the Battery
Follow these guidelines to safely use the battery:
• Turn off your computer and unplug it if you accidentally:
– Expose the equipment to liquid.
– Drop, jar, or damage the computer.
• Use only approved battery chargers
• Do not disassemble the battery, heat it above 212° F (100° C), or burn it. The
battery used in this computer may cause a fire or chemical burn if mistreated.
• Your computer's rechargeable battery may be considered hazardous waste. If
you replace your battery with a new one:
– Keep the old battery out of the reach of children.
– Dispose of the old battery promptly.
– Make sure that you follow all local requirements when you dispose of
the old battery.
Removing the Battery
Your computer comes with the battery pack inserted in the computer. To remove
the battery from the computer:
1. Turn the computer’s power off.
2. Close the LCD panel, and turn the computer over so that the bottom of the unit
faces up.
Using the Battery 35
3. Slide the battery compartment cover straight up and off the computer (Figure
17).
Figure 17. Removing the Battery Pack
4. Grasp the tab on the battery and pull the battery out of the compartment.
Installing the Battery
To install the battery pack:
1. With the computer’s power off, close the LCD panel and turn the computer
over so the bottom of the unit faces up.
2. Slide the battery compartment cover straight up and off the computer(Figure
18).
Insert the battery into the battery compartment, ensuring th
correct orientation so that the battery fits in its slot properly.
3. Slide the battery pack into the compartment. Make sure the battery is fully
inserted into the compartment.
4. Align the tabs on the battery compartment cover with the slots on the battery
compartment.

5. Push the cover straight down until it snaps into place.
Figure 18. Installing the Battery
Monitoring the Battery Charge
Battery life is affected by factors such as the power-management settings in
System Setup, the applications you use, and the brightness settings of the LCD.
Under normal usage, the battery charge lasts approximately 3 hours.
Battery life estimates are subject to variation. The actual life
of your battery may be less than the estimates given in the
manual.
You can monitor the charge of the battery pack installed in your computer through
the battery gauge.
Using the Battery Gauge
Press <Fn+F6> to display the battery gauge on the LCD. You can display the
battery gauge while you are in any program.
The gauge has five sections:
•Indicates that the computer is powered by the AC
adapter.
Using the Battery 37
•Indicates that the computer is powered by the battery.
• Shows you current PMS(Power management Setting)
status which is set in the Windows Control Panel. It
indicates that the system is in power saving mode.
•Shows you current PMS(Power management Setting)
status which is set in the Windows Control Panel. It
indicates that the system is in Performance mode.
•Indicates the approximate amount of the primary battery
charge remaining.
While the battery gauge is displayed, all keys except <Esc> are disabled. The
battery gauge closes in a few seconds, or you can press <Esc> to close it.

38 Using the Battery
The above features are valid with Windows 95 or any other APM compliant
operating systems. In the case of a Windows 98/ Me or any other ACPI compliant
operating system which is running on APM interface, you should adjust the battery
alarm features by using the operating systems power management program
(Control Panel > Power management in Windows 98/ Me).
In the APM mode you should select the Suspend mode of the low battery situations
(Save to RAM/Save-to-Disk) in BIOS setup, See “Power Menu” on page 70. Also
see “Using Power Management Options” on page 77
If you cannot run your computer from the battery and the battery will not charge
when you attach the power cord, the problem may be that:
• The battery temperature is below 41° F (5° C) or over 95° F (35° C). If you
think the battery temperature is too hot or too cold, turn off the computer,
remove the battery, and let the battery reach room temperature. Then try
charging the battery again.
• The battery is defective. Replace the battery with a new battery.

Sector) agreed on the technical specifications for 56K modems (V.90) and has
approved in mid-September, 1998.
But, the modem driver can be updated to resolve fine points of operation
between different vendor's modems and unusual telephone line conditions.
1. Due to FCC limitations, speeds of 53kbps are the maximum
permissible transmit power levels during download
transmissions.Actual data speeds will vary depending on line
conditions.
2. In order to use the 56K feature, be sure to check if the
standards supported by the on-line service provider and the
modem are identical.

Modem Commands
The SENS Modem includes the basic commands used by the Smart Modem of the
Hayes Corporation . Some additional commands have been added to it to improve
its capacity.
What are AT commands?
AT commands are the control commands of Fax modems developed by the Hayes
Corporation. AT commands are the industry standard and necessary for any fax
modem. It is used with the S-register to set the modem status.
Generally, AT commands are used by directly entering the command into any
communications program, like Hyper terminal.
You can do the jobs below more easily by using AT commands.
• Calling up or hanging up the phone in order to communicate by Computer
modem
• Choosing a modem in order to make the most efficient communication status.
But, as the communication programs are becoming more efficient and more
intelligent nowadays, users do not have to know all the AT commands. Only a few
basic commands are enough for computer communications.
Before Using AT Commands
AT commands can be used by entering them into terminal-based communication
programs directly. (Hyper terminal, CrossTalk, Procomm, etc.)
CompuServe, America On-line applications are not terminal-based
communication programs, but they are the communication programs based on a
Graphic environment. This kind of program can initiate the modem setting by
entering AT commands in a menu having a modem initialization command.
What you have to know before using AT commands is that there are two kinds of
modes when you use it.
Command mode:
If you turn on your computer and start communication by a communication
program, you can see a prompt on the terminal screen. Under such conditions, you
can use AT commands like calling, etc.
DATA Mode
Using the Modem 55
In command mode, you can call by using AT commands and communicate with
others by connecting to other modems. You can call this status Data mode or Online mode. In data mode, You can't use any AT commands except the +++
command, which has +++ at the head.
If you stop communication and disconnect the phone, the Fax modem will run in
command mode again.
Using Command Mode during Communications
Sometimes, you have to use AT command while you're communicating with
others via modem. In this case, you can use +++ command for AT command
without hanging up your telephone. Pressing '+' three times makes fax mode
change to command mode. Of course, the telephone is not disconnected. (Don't
enter Enter key after input +++)
Connection may be lost depending on the server.
If you want return to Data mode from command mode, you only have to input ATO
and press the Enter key to start the communications again.
The mode can not be transferred from the command mode to
data mode depending on the server.
Using AT commands
AT commands can be used in the following way. There's no difference between
capital letters and small letters, and all commands should include 'AT' as a prefix
except ones, which include 'A/' instead.
Also, Carriage Return saved in the S3 register should be entered in order to sign
the end of the command.
Example:
AT command
Press Enter key
ATDT 123-4567
Press Enter and the modem dials to 123-4567

76 Using System Security
Using Power Management Options
Your computer includes power-management options that can help the battery
charge last longer and extend the life of the battery, LCD panel, and other
components. Power-management options slow down or shut off system
components when the components are not being used.
Power management may slow down system performance. Your computer runs
fastest with the power cord attached, when power management is disabled.
Windows 98/ Me has two Power Management strategies:
• APM (Advanced Power Management) mode: Under APM mode, Windows
98/ Me Power management works with the settings in the Power Management
option on the Control Panel except for rest mode.
• ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power Management Interface) mode:
Under the ACPI mode, All the settings in System Setup have no effect on
Windows 98/ Me. Battery low and battery very low warnings are configured
using the Power Management option.
If you want to use Hibernation function in ACPI mode (Windows 98/
Me), then click Start > Settings > Control Panel and double click
Power Management icon. Select Hibernate on the When I press the
sleep button on my computer field in Advanced tap. Then you can use
the power button for activating the hibernation function.
If you want to shut down your computer by pressing the power button,
see “ACPI(Advanced Configuration and Power Interface) mode” on
page 8.
If your computer uses DOS or Windows 95, Power Management works with the
settings in System Setup.
If your computer shipped from the factory with Windows NT installed,
PowerProfiler software was included to support power management.
Maximum Power Saving Mode
For maximum power saving mode, the microprocessor may run at slow speed to
conserve power. To enable this mode , set the Idle Mode field in System Setup to
enabled.
Using Power Management Options 77
Suspend Mode
The Suspend Timeout field in System Setup enables you to specify the time period
the computer can remain idle (no user input or device activity) before the computer
enters rest mode. You can disable this option by selecting Off, or you can specify
a Suspend Timeout delay time of from 5 to 60 minutes.
The Suspend Mode field in System Setup defines what type of Rest mode your
computer enters:
• Save to RAM: Saves power by turning off the microprocessor and all devices
except system memory and controller, video memory and controller.
• Save To Disk: This mode provides the greatest power-saving capabilities by
essentially turning off your computer. In this mode, all system logic (except
for your computer wakeup circuitry and battery charger) is turned off. During
save to disk mode, the DRAM and video memory are saved to the hard drive
and are restored when your computer resumes operation.
You can press <Fn+F11/Rest> to manually place your computer into Suspend
mode.
When you use the <Fn+F11/Rest> key combination, your
computer may postpone entering Suspend mode during a
critical operation, such as reading from or writing to the hard
drive.
To resume to full-power mode, press the power button.
Once all devices return to full-power mode, all active software applications and
system states are restored to exactly how they were before your computer entered
rest mode.
When your computer enters or resumes from Save To Disk mode, screens appear
indicating system status. These status screens do not appear when the computer
enters or resumes from power on suspend.
Suspend Mode Precautions
Observe the following precautions when using Suspend mode:
• Save all open files before you press <Fn+F11> to manually place your
computer into Suspend mode.
78 Using Power Management Options
• If you purchased a new hard drive, make sure that you create a save to disk
partition equal to the amount of system memory plus the amount of video
memory plus 2 MB before you enable save to disk mode. See ” Creating a
Save to Disk Partition” on page 81 for more information.
• Do not try to resume to full-power mode using battery power if the battery
charge is low. If the battery charge is too low, the system may not be able to
resume fully. Plug in the power cord if your computer cannot resume normal
operation because of a low battery charge.
When your computer is in power on suspend or save to disk
mode, do not connect or remove any devices (including PC
Cards or memory modules) because you may damage the
computer or resume to full power may fail. If a floppy disk is
in the floppy drive, do not remove it or switch it with another
disk. However, you can plug in the AC adapter if the resume
to full power fails because of a low battery charge. When the
computer is in save to disk mode, you can remove and
replace the battery.
Using PowerProfiler
PowerProfiler enables you to set power-management options for computer
shipped with Windows NT installed. This section could differ depend on your
computer specification.
To open the PowerProfiler window, double-click the battery icon on the right
corner of the Windows taskbar. If you click the icon with the right mouse button,
a menu appears with an option to put the computer in Suspend mode.
Click the Standard tab in PowerProfiler to set timeouts for the LCD and the hard
drive. You can also set power management to be enabled Always, Battery Only, or
Never. The Advanced screen in PowerProfiler enables resume from rest options,
and the Battery screen enables options to conserve battery life.
Keep the following in mind when using PowerProfiler:
• If you disable power management in PowerProfiler, the setting overrides any
power-management settings in System Setup.
• If you enable LCD and hard drive timeouts in PowerProfiler, the LCD and
hard drive turn off when the shortest timeout period in either program passes.
Using Power Management Options 79
• If you disable the Resume on Time field in System Setup, the same field in
PowerProfiler is also automatically disabled. An easy way to work with these
two fields is to set the resume time to 0 in System Setup and set the actual
resume time that you desire in PowerProfiler.
PowerProfiler maintains the accuracy of the system clock
when the computer resumes from rest mode. If PowerProfiler
is closed or removed from your hard drive, your system clock
may not be accurate when your computer resumes from rest
mode.
For more information on PowerProfiler, see the Help option in the PowerProfiler
software.

Video Features and Configuration
Your computer includes a TFT LCD or active-matrix display. The capabilities of
the screen plus the video drivers installed on the computer determine the quality of
the image your LCD can display.
The following sections describe the display capabilities of your computer.
Resolution and Color Depth
The resolution of the LCD is the sharpness of the image it can display. Resolution
is measured by the number of pixels (individual dots) displayed on the entire
screen. In general, the more pixels the LCD can display, the better the image.
Your LCD screen is XGA. In XGA, the screen has a maximum display of
1024x768, about 800,000 pixels.
The number of colors the LCD can display is measured by how many bits the LCD
uses to represent each pixel:
•
•
•
•
8-bit color can support 256 different colors.
16-bit color can support 64 K (65,536) colors.
24-bit color can support 16 M (16.8 million) colors.
32-bit color can support 16 M (16.8 million) colors.
24-bit color uses the RGB color model.
32-bit color uses the CMYK color model which gives better printed color
matching.
The video mode capabilities and maximum colors supported in Windows 98/ Me,
Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000 are same in your computer and Table 8 shows

monitor to use. But, some programs are not able to drag from
the primary monitor to secondary monitor.
The order of Icons on the Windows desktop could be changed
after using Duo View mode.
Limits on Video Driver while using Duo View mode
1. Certain combinations of display modes, color depth and refresh rate, when Duo
View mode is active, are not supported because of video memory bandwidth
limitation.
2. When using Duo View in simultaneous display mode, frame rates in Direct
Draw applications are slightly lower because of the need to synchronize buffer
flip.
3. If the primary/secondary monitor on Duo View mode is set to high resolution
and high refresh rate display mode, the full frame rate setting on DVD-ROM
may not played properly. Playing DVD-ROM on Single View mode is highly
recommended.
4. It is not possible to use 16 bit colors in Windows 98. If so, secondary monitor
on Duo View mode can not support the VGA mode.
96 Using Duo View mode
5. The video memory uses one memory pool for two screen and Direct Draw
application on Duo View mode in Windows 98. So activating the Direct Draw
application which does not support that mode could cause fail in changing
mode.
6. The program which does not have Duo View compatibility can not be used in
the secondary monitor on Duo View mode.
7. The S3 video driver supports VPE (Microsoft video port specification) for
multimedia function. So the programs using VPM (Cirrus logic video port
specification) may not be supported.
8. Changing Duo View mode to Single View mode while you maximize the
window of a program (such as Windows Explorer) could fail. Set the resolution
of the secondary monitor lower than the primary monitor, or adjust the window

Working with PC Cards
By installing PC Cards, you can add functions to your notebook computer similar
to those found on add-in boards for desktop computers. Available PC Cards
include:
• Input/output, such as modem, network, pager, video capture, and SCSI cards.
• Storage, such as hard drive and flash (SRAM) cards.
• Combo cards, such as a combination modem and network card.
Your computer includes the following PC Card support:
• Two PC-Card slots: You can install Type I, II, or III cards in the slots. Type
III cards are thicker than Types I and II. If you install a Type III card in the
bottom slot, you cannot install a card in the top slot.
• CardBus hardware and software: CardBus enables the computer to use 32-bit
PC Cards. Windows 98/ Me supports 32-bit and 16-bit PC Cards. The
SystemSoft® CardWizard™ for Windows NT program, provided with
systems that ship from the factory with Windows NT installed, also supports
both 16-bit and 32-bit cards.
• Zoomed video: Both PC Card slots and the video chip on your computer
support zoomed video. When you install a zoom video PC Card in the upper
or lower slot, data can be transferred directly from the PC Card to video and
audio systems without going through the microprocessor. Video conferencing
and real-time multimedia devices, such as video cameras, are supported by
zoomed video.
To use the CardBus and zoomed video technology with
Windows NT, install the CardBus and zoomed video driver
provided with your PC Card. If no drivers were supplied with
your card, contact the PC Card manufacturer. ATA (AT
attachment) and modem PC Cards do not require extra
drivers.

About Drivers and System Resources
This section gives you basic information about drivers and system IRQs.
Drivers
A driver is a program that enables the operating system to work with a hardware
device. Your computer includes drivers for the audio, video, infrared, touchpad,
keyboard, CD-ROM drive, hard drive, floppy drive, and PC Card controller. When
you add a device to your computer, such as a printer, you install a driver for that
device. Different drivers are used by different operating systems.
IRQs
Most of the devices in your computer or connected to your computer need their
own IRQ (interrupt request line). The IRQ is a hardware line that a device can use
to send signals to the microprocessor. When the device needs the microprocessor’s
service, the device sends an interrupt request signal to the microprocessor.
The number of IRQs available for any computer is limited by industry standards.
Because it ships with numerous features, this computer uses most of the available
IRQs. If you add another device to your computer, you may need to disable an
existing device to free up an IRQ for the new device. IRQ resources are of
particular concern when the computer is attached to a docking device.
The default IRQ settings that are used by your computer are listed in Table 10.

• Make sure the Infrared port field in System Setup is set to 2F8, IRQ 3. The
field is in the I/O Device Configuration under Advanced Menu.
• The receiving device must be positioned properly. There must be no more
than three feet of distance between the computer’s infrared port and the
receiving infrared device.
• The sending and receiving devices need to be on the same level vertically.
Place them on the same table if possible.
• Make sure the infrared ports on the sending and receiving devices face each
other, with no more than a 30 degree angle between the two infrared ports.
112 Troubleshooting
• Make sure that nothing is obstructing the file transfer path between the
computer’s infrared port and the receiving infrared device.
If you still cannot transfer a file, see the online help.
Modem Problems
My modem doesn't connect to services or disconnects during communication
If your modem has difficulty in connecting to on-line services and sustaining
communications, firstly check the quality of the phone line. Interference from
certain devices or poor line power conditions may degrade the quality of your
connection. Under these conditions gradually reduce the communication speed of
your modem until a reliable connection is achieved.
Check your on-line service provider. Service line or service may be halted.
When using a PBX phone system I can't dial on my modem.
If you use a PBX phone system you may need to press a number i.e. '9' to connect
to an external line, you should enter the following command before trying the
connection and check modem initialization.
ATX3&W
And add "9," as the external line prefix (in our example) of the phone number
when using the dial command "ATDT9, 123-4567".
Screen displays random or garbage characters during communications.
After your modem has connected to the on-line service, your screen may display
garbage characters or after-images in screen transitions. This problem is caused
by a mismatch of the terminal modes between communications service and
communications programs. You need to match the terminal modes to each other.
Refer the user's guide of the communications program you're using.
Reports error message that insufficient Hard Disk space is available.
Delete the unnecessary messages or data you received by Modem or Fax every

Glossary
AC adapter
The AC (or alternating current) adapter regulates current coming into your
computer from the wall outlet. The current at the wall outlet is alternating current
and needs to be changed by the adapter to DC (direct current) before your
computer can use it for power.
ACPI
ACPI(Advanced Configuration and Power Interface)- a method for describing
hardware interfaces in terms abstract enough to allow flexible and innovative
hardware implementations and concrete enough to allow shrink-wrap OS code to
use such hardware interfaces.
BIOS
BIOS stands for basic input/output system. The BIOS is software (often called
firmware) that is independent of any operating system. It enables the computer to
communicate with the screen, keyboard, and other peripheral devices without
using programs on the hard disk.
The BIOS on your computer is flash BIOS, which means that it has been recorded
on a flash memory chip that can be updated if needed.
Boot
To start your computer. A cold boot resets the entire computer and runs through
all computer self-tests. A warm boot clears out computer memory only.
Boot disk
A disk containing operating system programs required to start your computer. A
boot disk can be a floppy disk, hard drive, or compact disc.
Byte
The basic unit of measure for computer memory. A character—such as a letter of
the alphabet—uses one byte of memory. Computer memory is often measured in
kilobytes (1,024 bytes) or megabytes (1,048,576 bytes).
Each byte is made up of eight bits. For more information on bytes and bits, see an
introductory book on computers.
120 Glossary
Cache memory
Cache is very fast, zero-wait-state memory located between the microprocessor
and main memory. Cache reduces the average time required by the
microprocessor to get the data it needs from the main memory by storing recently
accessed data in the cache.
CardBus
CardBus technology enables the computer to use 32-bit PC Cards. Hardware in
the computer and the Windows 98 operating system provide support for the 32bit cards. The voltage of 32-bit cards (3.3 volts) is lower than that of 16-bit cards
(5 volts). The 32-bit cards can transmit more data at a time than the 16-bit cards,
thus increasing their speed.
CMOS memory
CMOS (complementary metal oxide semiconductor) memory is powered by the
CMOS battery. The System Setup settings and other parameters are maintained in
CMOS memory. Even when you turn your computer off, the information in
CMOS memory is saved.
COM port
COM stands for communication. COM ports are the serial ports in your computer.
Compact Disc
A compact disc (CD).
Conventional memory
The first 640 KB of system memory. Operating systems and application programs
can directly access this memory without using memory-management software.
Disk
The device used by the computer to store and retrieve information. Disk can refer
to a floppy disk, hard disk, or RAM disk.
Disk cache
A software device that accumulates copies of recently used disk sectors in RAM.
The application program can then read these copies without accessing the disk.
This, in turn, speeds up the performance of the application.
A cache is a buffer for transferring disk sectors in and out of RAM. Data stored in
a disk cache is a copy of data already stored on the physical disk.
Glossary 121
DMA (direct memory access)
A method of transferring data from a device to memory without having the data
pass through the microprocessor. Using DMA can speed up system performance.
DPMS
Display Power Management Signalling. Displays or monitors that comply with
this can be managed by the Power Management features found in the system
setup.
Floppy disk
A removable disk, also called floppy or diskette.
Hard drive
Also called fixed disk. A hard drive is connected to the computer and can be
installed or removed. Data written to a hard drive remains until it is overwritten
or corrupted.
The 2.5-inch hard drive in your computer was designed for use in a notebook
computer. Because hard drives in notebook computers are smaller than those in
desktop computers, their maximum storage capacity may be less than that of
desktop hard drives. However, because of their smaller size, the drives handle
shock and vibration better than larger drives, which is important for a notebook
computer.
I/O
Input/output. Refers to peripheral devices, such as printers, that are addressed
through an I/O address.
I/O address
I/O stands for input/output. Peripheral devices, such as printers, are addressed
through the I/O port address.
IRQ (interrupt request line)
The IRQ is a hardware line that a device uses to signal the microprocessor when
the device needs the microprocessor’s services. The number of IRQs is limited by
industry standards.
LCD (liquid-crystal display)
The LCD screen on your computer differs from the display screen of a desktop
monitor. Most desktop monitors use CRT (cathode-ray tube) displays, which
work by moving an electron beam across phosphor dots on the back of the screen.
The phosphor dots light up to show the image. LCDs use a liquid-crystal solution
between two sheets of polarizing material. Electric current passing through the
122 Glossary
liquid aligns the crystals so that light can or cannot pass through them, creating an
image.
MB(megabyte)
1,024 kilobytes.
Megabit
1,048,576 bits or about 128 kilobytes.
Operating system
A program that supervises the computer's operation, including handling I/O.
Application programs and users can request operating-system services. A user
might request operation-system services to copy files or format a disk. An
application program might use the operating system to obtain keyboard input,
write data to a file, or write data to a screen.
PC Car
PC Card stands for personal computer card. The Personal Computer Memory
Card International Association (PCMCIA) defines the standards used to develop
all PC Cards. PC Card types include: modems, Ethernet adapters, SCSI adapters,
ATA cards, and memory cards.
PC slot
The PC slot is the hardware slot in the computer where the PC Card is placed.
Pixel
A pixel is an individual dot in a graphic displayed on your computer. The pixels
are so close together that they look as though they are connected. An LCD screen
displays thousands or millions of pixels.
Plug and Play
A plug and play operating system automatically configures computer components
to work with your system. With this type of operating system, you normally do
not need to set jumpers on devices or set memory addresses or IRQs.
POST
POST stands for power-on self-test. POST is a test performed by the computer
whenever you turn on the power. POST checks system integrity.
RAM (random access memory)
The computer's system memory, including conventional and extended memory.
You can write to and read from RAM. Information stored in RAM is temporary,
and is erased when the system is turned off.
Glossary 123
Refresh rate
The refresh rate is the rate at which the image on the LCD screen is rewritten to
the screen. A fast refresh rate helps keep the image from flickering.
Resolution
The resolution is the sharpness or clarity of the image on your LCD screen.
Resolution is measured by the number of pixels the computer’s screen can
display. For example, a resolution of 800x600 means that the screen can display
800 pixels in row and can display 600 rows. The more pixels displayed, the higher
the resolution and the better the image.
ROM (read-only memory)
Permanent computer memory dedicated to a particular function. For example, the
instructions for starting the computer when you first turn on power are contained
in ROM. You cannot write to ROM. (ROM is not the same as RAM).
Sector
Also known as disk sector. The portion of a track that is numbered and can hold
a specified number of characters (usually 512 KB).
Shadow RAM
A write-protected area of RAM that contains a copy of the BIOS. As the computer
boots, the BIOS is copied from its permanent location in ROM to RAM. The
BIOS can be executed much faster in RAM than in ROM. The BIOS remains in
shadow RAM until you turn off the computer.
TFT (thin film transistor) LCD
A TFT LCD uses a separate transistor circuit to control each pixel. This
technology provides the best resolution for an LCD screen. A TFT LCD is also
sometimes called an active matrix LCD.
Zoomed video
Zoomed video technology enables zoom video PC Card to transfer data directly
from the card to video and audio systems without going through the
microprocessor. This process improves video performance. Video conferencing
and real-time multimedia devices, such as video cameras, are supported by zoom
video.
