Precautions for Operating System Support
If a problem occurs because of the reinstallation of other
operating systems(OS) or a previous version of a OS pre-installed
on this computer, or a software that does not support the OS, the
company will not provide technical support, a replacement or
refund, and if our service engineer visits you due to this problem,
a service charge will be applied.
Performance Restrictions
1 Online games and some games(3D,2D) may not be supported
and Full HD video and some high bit rate HD video playback
may be slow and stutter on this computer.
2 There is one memory slot provided on this computer. It
supports 2GB memory max. To upgrade to 2GB memory,
replace the current memory with a 2GB memory module.
Before You Start
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.
Chapter 1
Getting Started
7
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)
For more information, refer to the Samsung Recovery Solution
section.

When connected to a 100Mbps/1Gbps wired LAN and the
computer exits Sleep/hibernation mode, a message appears
informing you of a connection to a 10Mbps/100Mbps
wired LAN. This happens because when the computer exits
standby/hibernate mode, restoring the network takes about
3 seconds. When the network is restored, it operates at
100Mbps/1Gbps.
When system is running on battery, some time it takes about
20sec after inserting LAN cable to be able to connect to
internet. This symptom happen as a result of power saving
feature to reduce battery consumption.
When system is running on battery, the Wired LAN speed
is decreased automatically to reduce battery consumption.
In such case, a 1Gbps /100Mbps LAN would function at
100Mbps/10Mbps speed.

Recovery Solution Representation (Optional)
What is a Recovery Area?
•• Samsung computers have an additional partition to recover
computers or save backup files.
(Only for models with the Samsung Recovery Solution.)
The capacity representation of the hard disk drive(HDD)
in Windows is different from the product specifications.
This partition is called a Recovery Area and it includes a recovery
image that comprises of the OS and application programs.
•• 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.
•• You can either double-click the Samsung Recovery Solution
while booting the computer
icon on the desktop or press
This is due to the difference in capacity calculation and does
not mean the installed HDD is different from the product
specifications.
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.
•• 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.
