About the Product Capacity
Representation Standard
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)
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.

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.
22

Wireless Guidance
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.
This transmitter must not be collocated or operate in conjunction with any other antenna or
transmitter except the installed Bluetooth transmitter.
Some circumstances require restrictions on wireless devices. Examples of common
restrictions are on the following page:
29
■ 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.

initial time, we recommend purchasing a
new battery.
For long periods of not using the battery,
keep the battery after discharging it. This
extends the battery life time.

network” option.
For detailed information on the authentication server, ask your network
administrator.
► Check the AP settings.
A1Check if the surroundings are appropriate for a wireless LAN. A wireless LAN
connection may be limited by the surrounding environment and distance. Obstacles
such as walls and door mats affect the quality of the wireless LAN signal. You
have to install an AP in a high, open position far away from any other radio signal
sources. If the AP is excessively far away, or is installed at the end of a building
and you are attempting to use the wireless LAN from the other end, you may not be
able to use the wireless communication normally because the signal is blocked by
obstacles between you and the AP (such as a wall).
A2Check if the AP operates properly. If the AP is not operating properly, turn it off and
on again and try again.
184
A3Check if the AP firmware is the latest version. (For more information on the AP
firmware, ask the AP manufacturer or your product provider.)
A4Check if the AP is properly connected to the network. Connect the LAN cable from
the AP to a computer and check if the network is connected properly.
A5Check the Network Key (Encryption Key) settings again.
If the automatic password converting function (passphrase function) is enabled and
the wireless connection is normal but you cannot send data over the connection,
please enter the Network Key (Encryption Key) manually.
A6Check the AP settings as follows.
If there are multiple APs running at the same time, check the channel setting
of each AP. If the interval between the channels of the APs is narrow, you may
experience electromagnetic interference. Set the channel numbers of the APs
so that the internals between the channels are maximized. (E.g., Ch1, Ch5, Ch9,
Ch13)
If the SSID option is set to Hide, you will not be able to find the AP on your
computer. It is recommended unselecting the Hide option of the AP. SSID (Service
Set ID) is a name used to distinguish a wireless LAN from other wireless LANs.
It is recommended using Long Preamble. Preamble is a signal for data
transmission synchronization. Although some APs support Short Preamble, there
might be a compatibility problem.
Because ‘Fixed’ channel selection is more stable then ‘Auto’ channel selection,
‘Fixed’ channel selection is recommended. It is recommended not using the
‘Block Any’ and ‘Any Connection Block’ functions. Although these functions block
connections at the client side when the network name is Any or Blank, it may cause
a compatibility problem.
For more information on the AP settings, refer to the owner’s manual supplied with
the AP.

Glossary
The Glossary lists the terminologies used in this User Guide. For terminologies other than these, look in Windows Help.
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.
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.
Client
This refers to a computer that uses a
shared network resource provided by a
server.
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.
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.
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.
206
Firewall
A security system used to protect an
internal network or intranet from external
networks through an authentication
procedure.
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.
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.
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 XP uses TCP/IP as the default
protocol.
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.
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 options and the
time.
Power Schemes

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.
Windows Media Player
