Information on the return of electrical and electronic waste
in EU countries according to Directive 2002/96/EC, and its implementation in respective national regulations
a) Reason and Purpose of Separate Collection
Users of electrical and electronic equipment are required to dispose of used devices separately. Electrical and electronic equipment must not be disposed of together with unsorted
municipal solid waste (domestic refuse), as it contains a range of dangerous elements that
cause problems for waste management. Separate collection from regular municipal waste
is a prerequisite for the special treatment and appropriate recycling of electrical and electronic waste. This is essential, as many components of electrical and electronic devices are
damaging to the environment if they are not disposed of professionally. Disposing of the
devices along with unsorted municipal waste can cause harmful substances to enter the
waste flow. The consequence would be a considerable burden on the environment.
b) Significance the ‘Crossed-Out Wheelie Bin’
The crossed-out wheelie bin is the symbol for separate collection.
Electrical and electronic equipment marked with this symbol must not be
disposed of to-gether with municipal sorted waste (domestic refuse). Such
items can be handed in free of charge at public collection points.
c) Reuse, Recycling and Recovery
Electrical and electronic waste contains valuable raw materials such as iron, aluminum
and copper. These components must be treated selectively. A separate collection and a
selec-tive treatment are the basis for environmentally-friendly disposal and protection of
human health.
According to the particular terms, manufacturers are obligated to assume the costs associated with disposing of these devices as well as other obligations. This is to promote the
chief objectives of reuse and recycling. For this to be possible, consumers must dispose of
used devices that are no longer needed at communal collection points. Actively using these
return and collection systems contributes to the reuse, recycling and recovery of electrical
and electronic equipment and protects the environment.
d) Weight
Information on the weight of the acquired product can be found on the item list as well as
on the packaging.

Important Safety Information
Wireless LAN
(wireless network - abbreviation = WLAN)
Your notebook may contain a Wireless LAN module (optional). This module allows you to set
up a wireless-based network, and to connect with an existing wireless network. It works
according to the IEEE802.11a+b+g standard.
WLAN technology allows users to set up wireless connections inside a local area (e.g. in
a company or campus building, or in a public building such as an airport). WLANs can be
used in temporary offices, in locations where it is not possible to set up extensive cable
installations, or to extend an existing LAN so that users in different parts of a building can
work at different times.
There are two different ways to operate a WLAN.
In fixed WLANs, wireless stations (devices with radio network cards or external modems)
set up connections with wireless access points, which act as bridges between the stations
and the existing network backbone. In Peer-to-Peer (ad hoc) WLANs several users can set
up a temporary network within a limited area such as a conference room, without using
access points, and providing there is no need to use network resources.
In 1997 the IEEE confirmed the standard 802.11 for WLANs; this set a data transfer rate of
1 to 2 Mbit/s (Megabits per second). Under 802.11a+b+g, the new governing standard,
the maximum data transfer rate is 54 Mbit/s over a frequency band of 2.4 or 5 GHz (Gigahertz).

Additional safety notes for units with wireless LAN
A wireless LAN component is integrated into your Notebook. For this reason you must make
sure that you comply with the following notes on safety:
•
Switch off the Notebook when you are in an aircraft or
while driving a car.
•
If you are in a hospital, an operating room or close to an
electronic medical system, switch off the wireless components in the Notebook! The radio waves which are transmitted could disrupt the working of the medical equipment.
•
Keep the Notebook at least 20 cm away from a heart pacemaker, otherwise there is a risk that the radio waves could
disrupt the normal working of the pacemaker.
•
The radio waves which are transmitted could give rise to
interference noise in hearing aids.
•
When its radio components are switched on, do not place
the Notebook close to inflammable gases or in an environment which could be at risk of explosion (e.g. paint shop),
since the radio waves which are transmitted could set of a
fire or an explosion.
•
The range of the wireless connection depends on the environmental and other ambient conditions.
•
When transferring data over a wireless connection, unauthorized Third Parties can also receive the data.
MAXDATA Computer GmbH is not responsible for disruptions to radio or television reception which are caused by unauthorized alterations to this unit. MAXDATA also accepts no

The built-in network adapter enables your computer to connect to the Internet via a
10/100 Mbps network or DSL.
The connection is made via an Ethernet network cable and RJ-45 connectors. These are
connected to the notebook and to an available network hub or DSL socket.
Under no circumstances should you confuse a network cable
RJ-45 connector with
an ISDN connector!
NEVER attempt to connect the LAN adapter
to an ISDN telephone
socket!
This would result in
serious damage to the
device.

System Overview
Installation Instructions
Restoring the Drivers
Your system is supplied in a preloaded condition. This means that all the data and drivers
that the system requires are already on the hard disk. In case you erase and/or format your
hard disk drive, the system drivers are stored on the Utility CD supplied with the computer.
After reinstalling the operating system (for example, with the Recovery CD), this allows you
to restore your notebook to a usable condition.
The Utility CD
The Utility CD will run automatically after you place it in the drive. If this is not the case,
you can run the CD as follows: select <My Computer”> <CD Drive> and then the “utility.
exe” file.
You can select the driver that you want to install in the “Drivers” section. Recommended:
Install all listed drivers from top to bottom.
In addition, you can later install the advanced functions you require in the “Utility” section.
When using the Utility CD, please follow the menu instructions.
