About the Product Capacity Representation Standard
About HDD Capacity Representation
The capacity of the storage device (HDD, SSD) of the manufacturer is calculated assuming that 1KB=1,000 Bytes.
However, the operating system (Windows) calculates the storage device capacity assuming that 1KB=1,024 Bytes, and
therefore the capacity representation of the HDD in Windows is smaller than the actual capacity due to the difference in
capacity calculation. (E.g. For a 80GB HDD, Windows represents the capacity as 74.5GB, 80x1,000x1,000x1,000 byte/
(1,024x1,024x1,024)byte = 74.505GB)
In addition, the capacity representation in Windows may be even smaller because some programs such as Recovery
Solution may reside in a hidden area of the HDD.
About Memory Capacity Representation
The memory capacity reported in Windows is less than the actual capacity of memory.
This is because BIOS or a video adapter uses a portion of memory or claims it for further use.
(E.g. For 1GB(=1,024MB) memory installed, Windows may report the capacity as 1,022MB or less)
Recovery Solution Representation (Optional)
Q.
What is a Recovery Area?
A. – Samsung computers have an additional partition to recover computers or save backup files. (Only for models with
the Samsung Recovery Solution.) This partition is called a Recovery Area and it includes a recovery image that comprises of the OS and application
programs.
- You can either double-click the Samsung Recovery Solution icon on the desktop or press F4 while booting the
computer to enter the Recovery Area. Then you can back up the present computer state or recover the computer
from backed up images.
- For deleting the Recovery Area, you need to use an additional Recovery Area Removal Tool. After deleting the
recovery area, you can use the newly created partition for other uses, such as for saving personal data. Be careful
that once the recovery area is deleted, the Samsung Recovery Solutions will not work anymore.
Q. T
he capacity representation of the hard disk drive(HDD) in Windows is different from the product
specifications.
A. - The capacity of the storage device (HDD) of the manufacturer is calculated assuming that 1KB=1,000 Bytes.
However, the operating system (Windows) calculates the storage device capacity assuming that 1KB=1,024 Bytes, and therefore the capacity representation of the HDD in Windows is smaller than the actual capacity. This
is due to the difference in capacity calculation and does not mean the installed HDD is different from the product
specifications.
- The capacity representation in Windows may be smaller than the actual capacity because some programs occupy a
certain area of the HDD outside of Windows.
- For models with Samsung Recovery Solution, the HDD capacity representation in Windows may be smaller than
the actual capacity because Samsung Recovery Solution uses a hidden area of about 5~20GB of the HDD to save
the recovery image, and that hidden area is not counted towards the total size available to Windows. The size of
Samsung Recovery Solution varies by models because of the different size of applied programs.

Cautions on Preventing Data Loss (Hard Disk Management)
Take care not to damage the data on a hard disk drive.
 A hard disk drive is so sensitive to external impact that an external impact may cause loss of data on the surface of the
disk.
 Take extra care, because moving the computer or an impact on the computer when it is turned on may damage the data of
the hard disk drive.
 The company is not liable for any loss of any data caused by a customer’s careless usage or bad environmental conditions.
Causes that may damage the data of a hard disk drive and the hard disk drive itself.
 The data may be lost when an external impact is applied to the disk while disassembling or assembling the computer.
 The data may be lost when the computer is turned off or reset by a power failure while the hard disk drive is operating.
 The data may be lost and irrecoverable due to a computer virus infection.
 The data may be lost if the power is turned off while running a program.
 Moving or causing an impact to the computer while the hard disk drive is operating, may cause files to be corrupted or bad
sectors on the hard disk.
To prevent data loss due to damage to the hard disk drive, please backup your data frequently.

Wireless Guidance
(If fitted with 2.4G band or 5G band)
Low power, Radio LAN type devices (radio frequency (RF) wireless communication devices), operating in the 2.4GHz/
5GHz Band, may be present (embedded) in your notebook system. The following section is a general overview of
considerations while operating a wireless device.
Additional limitations, cautions, and concerns for specific countries are listed in the specific country sections (or country
group sections). The wireless devices in your system are only qualified for use in the countries identified by the Radio
Approval Marks on the system rating label. If the country you will be using the wireless device in, is not listed, please
contact your local Radio Approval agency for requirements. Wireless devices are closely regulated and use may not be
allowed.
The RF field strength of the wireless device or devices that may be embedded in your notebook are well below all
international RF exposure limits as known at this time. Because the wireless devices (which may be embedded into your
notebook) emit less energy than is allowed in radio frequency safety standards and recommendations, manufacturer
believes these devices are safe for use. Regardless of the power levels, care should be taken to minimize human contact
during normal operation.
As a general guideline, a separation of 20 cm (8 inches) between the wireless device and the body, for use of a wireless
device near the body (this does not include extremities) is typical. This device should be used more than 20 cm (8 inches)
from the body when wireless devices are on and transmitting.
Some circumstances require restrictions on wireless devices. Examples of common restrictions are listed on the next
page:
28
 Radio frequency wireless communication can interfere with equipment on commercial aircraft. Current aviation regulations
require wireless devices to be turned off while traveling in an airplane. 802.11ABGN (also known as wireless Ethernet or Wifi) and Bluetooth communication devices are examples of devices that
provide wireless communication.
 In environments where the risk of interference to other devices or services is harmful or perceived as harmful, the option to
use a wireless device may be restricted or eliminated. Airports, Hospitals, and Oxygen or flammable gas laden atmospheres
are limited examples where use of wireless devices may be restricted or eliminated. When in environments where you are
uncertain of the sanction to use wireless devices, ask the applicable authority for authorization prior to use or turning on the
wireless device.
 Every country has different restrictions on the use of wireless devices. Since your system is equipped with a wireless device,
when traveling between countries with your system, check with the local Radio Approval authorities prior to any move or trip
for any restrictions on the use of a wireless device in the destination country.
 If your system came equipped with an internal embedded wireless device, do not operate the wireless device unless all covers
and shields are in place and the system is fully assembled.
 Wireless devices are not user serviceable. Do not modify them in any way. Modification to a wireless device will void the
authorization to use it. Please contact manufacturer for service.
 Only use drivers approved for the country in which the device will be used. See the manufacturer System Restoration Kit, or
contact manufacturer Technical Support for additional information.

European Telecommunication Information
General
European standards dictate maximum radiated transmit
power of 100 mW effective isotropic radiated power
(EIRP) and the frequency range 2400 – 2483.5 MHz.
The low band 5.15 - 5.35 GHz is for indoor use only.
(for products fitted with EU-approved modems)
Marking by the symbol
indicates compliance of this
equipment to the Radio and Telecom Terminal Equipment
Directive 1999/5/EC. Such marking is indicative that
this equipment meets or exceeds the following technical
standards:
CTR 21 - Attachment requirements for pan-European
approval for connection to the analogue Public Switched
Telephone Networks (PSTNs) of TE (excluding TE
supporting voice telephony services) in which network
addressing, if provided, is by means of Dual Tone MultiFrequency (DTMF) signaling.
Belgium
The product may be used outdoors, but for outdoor
transmissions over a distance of 300m or more, a license
from the BIPT is required.
This restriction should be indicated in the manual as
follows:
Dans le cas d’une utilisation privée, à l’extérieur
d’un bâtiment, au-dessus d’un espace public, aucun
enregistrement n’est nécessaire pour une distance de
moins de 300m. Pour une distance supérieure à 300m
un enregistrement auprès de l’IBPT est requise. Pour
une utilisation publique à l’extérieur de bâtiments, une
licence de l’IBPT est requise. Pour les enregistrements et
licences, veuillez contacter l’IBPT.
Although this equipment can use either loop disconnect
(pulse) or DTMF (tone) signaling, only the performance
of the DTMF signaling is subject to regulatory
requirements for correct operation.
It is therefore strongly recommended that the equipment
is set to use DTMF signaling for access to public or
private emergency services. DTMF signaling also
provides faster call setup.
France

configured, or the network key (encryption key)
is incorrect.
A Verify whether the Wireless LAN LED is on.
If it is turned off, turn it on by pressing the Wireless
LAN On/Off button (Fn +
).
Q
A Check that the TCP/IP properties are configured
properly. When connecting to an AP, right-click the

the IP address will be displayed as follows (e.g.
169.254.xxx.xxx).
The Wireless LAN device is operating properly,
but I cannot connect to the Internet or to another
computer.
This is due to an incorrect configuration, or a
configuration error. Check the following:
A1 When connecting to a wireless Ad-Hoc network,
check if the network name (SSID) is the same.
A2 If a network key (encryption key) is used, the AP
(Access Point) and wireless Ad-Hoc network keys
must be the same.
The AP network key can be configured using
an AP management program. For more detailed
information, ask your network administrator or
product provider.
A3 Check that the device driver is installed properly.
If the driver is not properly installed, you will find
a yellow exclamation mark on the network icon by
clicking Device Manager > Network Adapter.
118
If the network does not provide DHCP, you have
to specify the correct IP address by asking your

the client station cannot connect to the network.
Q
I cannot connect to the AP.
 Check the AP Settings
 Check the Computer Settings
For the AP settings, refer to the User Guide provided
by the AP manufacturer.
A3 Verify whether the environment is suitable for using
a wireless LAN. The use of a wireless LAN may
be restricted according to the environment and
distance. Obstacles such as walls or doors affect the
use of a wireless LAN. Install the AP in a high and
open space, 50cm from the wall and far removed
from any other radio signal sources.
A1Select Start > All Programs > Accessories >
Windows Mobile Center and check the wireless
device status.
When it is represented as Disconnected This means the computer is not connected to the
AP. Check the status of the AP, referring to the
descriptions of the Checking the SP Settings
section below. Check the encryption key configured
in the AP and retry to the connection.
A4 Verify whether the AP is operating properly.
 When the AP is not operating normally, turn off the
AP, wait a short while, and turn it on again.
When it is represented as Connected, but you
cannot connect to the Internet This means the computer is connected to the AP, but
the AP or external network connected with the AP
may have a problem.
 Verify whether the AP’s firmware is the most recent
version. (Contact the AP manufacturer or the place
where you purchased the AP for details of the AP
firmware.)
When the ‘There is no wireless LAN adapter’
message appears or there is no wireless LAN
icon
This means the wireless LAN device is set to Do Not
Use or the device is not recognized. Check if the wireless device is properly recognized
in the Device Manager window. If the device is set
to Do Not Use, right-click and select Use from the
pop-up menu.
A5 Verify whether the AP has been properly connected
to the network. Verify whether the network is
operating normally by connecting the wired network
cable, which has been connected to the AP, to your
computer.
A6 Check the network key settings (encryption
key) again. When automatic code conversion (a
passphrase function) has been selected and data
communication is not functioning even with a normal
wireless connection, it is recommended entering the
network key (encryption key) manually.
A2 Verify whether the same network key (encryption
key) has been entered for both the AP and the
computer. The network key is an encryption key for
encrypting the data transmitted between the AP and
the computer. It is recommended setting the network
key manually.
A7 Check the AP settings as follows. (The following is
recommended for a standard environment and thus
may differ according to the specific wireless network
environment.)
119
Q
I cannot connect to a computer connected to the
Ad-Hoc network.
 When several APs are present simultaneously,
check the channel settings for each AP. When
different APs are using nearby channels,
interference may occur between the electronic
waves. Set the AP channels further apart from each
other. (Ex: Ch1, Ch5, Ch9, Ch13)
A1 Check the security settings and network name of the
wireless Ad-Hoc network.
A2 Check the TCP/IP settings of the computers
connected to the wireless Ad-Hoc network. The IP
addresses of the computers to be connected to a
wireless Ad-Hoc network must be set to the same
sub-network address.
 When an AP’s SSID (Service Set ID) option is set
to “Hide”, you cannot search for that AP on the
computer. We recommend unselecting the “Hide”
option for the AP. The SSID is a name used for
distinguishing one wireless LAN from another
wireless LAN.
 For example, if the TCP/IP setting is configured to a
fixed IP address, select Use the following IP address
in the TCP/IP Properties of the wireless adapter,
configure the items as follows and try again.
 It is recommended using Long Preamble. Preamble
is a signal for data transmission synchronization.
Short Preamble may be supported by some types of
APs but may cause compatibility problems.
 It is recommended using a static IP.
 Since static channel selection is more reliable than
auto channel selection, it is recommended using a
static channel.
IP: 10.0.0.1~10.0.0.254, Subnet Mask:
255.255.255.0.
It is recommended using a fixed IP address for
wireless Ad-Hoc network connections.
A3 You have to register the IP address allocated for
the wireless adapter as a ‘Trusted IP’ in McAfee
SecurityCenter.
 Click McAfee SecurityCenter > Advanced menu
> Configure > Internet and Network > Advanced
> Trusted and Banned IPs, and register the
IP address or IP address range as a Trusted IP
address.

During the wireless Ad-Hoc network operation,
the AP (Access Point) is intermittently not
found.
A1 Channel interference may occur when a wireless
video transceiver or a microwave oven is being used.
If you experience channel interference from other
equipment, we recommended changing the channel
for connecting to the AP. For more information about
AP settings, refer to the User Manual supplied by the
AP manufacturer.
A This problem occurs intermittently during the
wireless Ad-Hoc network operation. Even if this
problem occurs, the wireless Ad-Hoc network
operation is working properly and is not affected.
Click Refresh to update the AP list.
Q
I have set the same IP address for both the
wireless and wired connections, but they do not
work properly.
A2 Since IEEE802.11g equipment operates in hybrid
mode when there is active IEEE802.11b equipment,
the data rate may be degraded.
A You cannot use wireless and wired connections
using the same IP address. To sequentially use
both the wired and wireless connections with the
same IP address, you need to set the currently not
needed connection to Do Not Use in the Network
Connections of the Control Panel.

When no headset is found or cannot be
connected
 You can connect to only one Bluetooth device at a
time for a phone connection, data syncing, electronic
business card exchange, FAX transmission/reception,
sound related functions, and serial port functions.
A1 If the headset is already connected to another
device, you will not be able to find the headset and
cannot connect to the headset even if the headset is
found. Disconnect the connection to the other device
and then start the search again.
 It is recommended using only one Bluetooth device at a
time as connecting multiple Bluetooth or other wireless
devices at the same time may slow or destabilize the
Bluetooth connection.
A2 If the headset is connected to a power adapter, you
cannot make a Bluetooth connection.
 Data communications via Bluetooth may be poor when
the CPU load is at full capacity or there are insufficient
system resources.
Disconnect the power adapter and then retry.
A3 In general, a Bluetooth headset has 2 operating
modes, On/Off mode and Pairing mode.
To connect the headset to another Bluetooth device
such as a PC or cell phone, the headset must be in
Pairing mode.
 The Bluetooth function of a Bluetooth PDA, mobile
phone, mouse or keyboard may be turned off. To
use them in connection with a Samsung computer
supporting Bluetooth, you must check if the Bluetooth
function of the device to connect to is turned on.
Switch the headset to Pairing mode and then retry
the search operation.
For the procedures on turning on the Bluetooth function
of a device, refer to the relevant device manual.
In general, the headset in Pairing mode
automatically returns to On/Off mode after a certain
period of time.
 The services provided by Bluetooth devices may
vary depending on their capabilities. For the services
provided by the Bluetooth device, refer to the device
manual.

Glossary
The Glossary lists the terminologies used in this User Guide.
For terminologies other than these, look in Windows Help.
Direct X
An application interface developed to enable Windows
application programs to access hardware devices
at a very high speed. Since the operating speed of
graphics, memory and sound cards must be very fast
to provide high quality video and sound for games,
Direct X enables faster control and interaction between
applications and hardware devices. By using Direct
X, the multimedia performance of Windows has been
hugely improved.
Backup
A way to save the current data to restore it later if
necessary. A backup is a way to restore computer data
when the data or computer is damaged.
Chargeable USB
This program enables supplying power to a specific
USB port when the system is in power saving mode,
hibernation mode or off.
Client
This refers to a computer that uses a shared network
resource provided by a server.
Driver
Software that interacts between the hardware and
the operating system. An operating system knows the
hardware information and controls the hardware. In
general, a driver is supplied with the corresponding
hardware device.
DDR SDRAM (Double Data Rate Synchronous
Dynamic Random Access Memory)
DRAM is a memory type whose cells consist of a
capacitor and transistor manufactured at a low price.
SDRAM is a memory type whose performance has
been improved by synchronizing the clock with the
external CPU clock. DDR SDRAM is a memory type
whose performance has been improved by doubling
the operating speed of the SDRAM and is widely used
nowadays. This computer uses DDR SDRAM.
DVD (Digital Versatile Disk)
DVD was developed to replace CD (compact disk).
Although the shape and size of the disc are the same
as that of a CD, the capacity of a DVD is at least 4.7GB
while the capacity of a CD is 600MB. DVD video is
digital unlike VHS (analog) video and supports MPEG2 compression and digital audio. To play a DVD, a DVD
drive is required.
Device Manager
An administrative tool used to manage computer
devices. You can add or remove hardware or update a
device driver using the Device Manager.
127
LCD (Liquid Crystal Display)
There are Passive Matrix and Active Matrix LCD types.
This computer uses the Active Matrix type LCD called a
TFT LCD. Since an LCD is implemented by transistors
instead of a cathode-ray tube unlike a CRT, its size can
be slim. And because it does not blink, it reduces eye
strain.
Firewall
A security system used to protect an internal network or
intranet from external networks
through an authentication procedure.
Hibernation Mode
A power mode that saves all data in memory to the
hard disk and turns the CPU and hard disk off. When
canceling Hibernation Mode, all application programs
that were running are restored to their last state.
Network
A group of computers and devices, such as printers
and scanners, connected by a communications link.
A network can be either small or large and can be
connected permanently through cables or temporarily
through telephone lines or wireless links. The biggest
network is the Internet, a worldwide network.
Icon
This refers to a small image that represents a file that
users can use.
LAN (Local Area Network)
A communications network connecting computers,
printers and other devices within a local area such as
within a building. A LAN enables all connected devices
to interact with other devices on the network. The
current LAN uses the Ethernet media access control
method developed in the early 1980s. To connect to an
Ethernet, a network card called a LAN card, Ethernet
card or network interface card is required. To exchange
data between computers, a protocol is required besides
the hardware equipment. Windows Vista uses TCP/IP
as the default protocol.
Network Administrator
A user who plans, configures and manages network
operations. Sometimes, a network administrator is
called a system administrator.
Notification Area
This refers to the right area of the Taskbar including
program icons such as the volume control, the power

icon.
USB (Universal Serial Bus)
This refers to a serial interface standard developed
to replace the conventional interface standards such
as Serial and PS/2. While USB 1.1 supports 12Mbps
(12 million bits per second), USB 2.0 supports a data
rate that is 40 times (480Mpbs) faster than that of USB
1.1. The data rate of USB 2.0 is equivalent to that of
IEEE1394. Therefore USB 2.0 is used for A/V devices
supported by IEEE 1394 and a 2nd HDD and CDRW
that require a high data rate.
Server
In general, a server refers to a computer that provides
shared resources for network users.
