Introduction
This Operating Manual describes, among other things, how to set up, operate and
expand the PCD-4ND and PCD-5ND notebooks. Unless otherwise specified, the
information applies for both the PCD-4ND and the PCD-5ND.
Innovative technology and ergonomic design make this notebook the ideal userfriendly and reliable travel companion. The MS-DOS operating system, Windows
for Workgroups and Software Utilities are pre-installed on the hard disk to facilitate
the procedure when you use your notebook for the first time.
The power-management SL-enhanced processor coupled with power-management
functions (APM = Advanced Power Management) ensure effective use of the
battery life of the notebook. The battery can be simply replaced or recharged using
the optional auto adapter should it drain while you are on the move. You can use
the notebook with an additional battery. To do so, you must change the built-in
floppy disk drive against the additional battery. This will double battery life in mobile
use. To allow you to utilize the optimum capacity of the battery, you should deepdischarge and recharge it at regular intervals.
The PCD-4ND is equipped with a 4 MB main memory which can be upgraded to 8,
12 or 20 MB. The PCD-5ND is equipped with a 8 MB main memory which can be
upgraded to 16, 24 or 40 MB. Data is saved on an IDE hard disk drive. An external
disk drive can be connected to the parallel port of the notebook if you wish to work
with floppy disks. The notebook also features two PCMCIA slots for using PCMCIA
cards (types 1, 2 and 3). The drivers for PCMCIA cards are included on the
PCMCIA Utility floppy disk supplied.
Connections for external devices such as screen, printer and mouse are located on
the rear panel of the notebook. The PS/2 port recognizes the input device (e.g.
external keyboard, mouse) which has been connected. The parallel port (which
supports ECP and EPP modes) is designed to accommodate bi-directional data
transfer. In addition, the notebook has a connection port for a docking unit or a
station box. The notebook disposes of a infrared interface for wireless data
transfer.
An audio controller, a loudspeaker, a microphone and an audio connector provide
your notebook with an audio capability. You can thus incorporate voice, noise
effects and music into your PC environment. You can also connect an external
microphone and an external loudspeaker.

The battery
Operation
Deep-discharging/recharging the battery
The process of fully discharging and recharging the battery is necessary to ensure
that the battery charges fully. You should carry this out once a month and
– after charging the battery for the first time (e.g., when you use the notebook for
the first time)
– if you have not used the notebook for a longer period of time (e.g., a week)
– if the battery charge does not last as long as usual
– if the battery gets hot while charging
– if the charge segments in the battery symbol start to flash.

i
If the battery becomes hot in spite of discharging and recharging the battery
or if the battery charge does not last as long as usual or if the charge
segments in the battery symbol start to flash, the battery should be
replaced.
When disposing of the old battery, pay attention to the safety instructions in
the section "Important notes".

Re-formatting the hard disk
Operation
Rebuilding the hard disk
If you have created a bootable system disk (floppy disk) and have backed up the
hard disk, you can reformat and rebuild the hard disk, and restore the versions of
directories and files stored on the hard disk at the time you performed the backup.
Use the system disk to boot the PC from the floppy disk drive.
Use the MS-DOS command FDISK to partition the hard disk. (This requires
sound knowledge of the system.)
Use the MS-DOS command FORMAT with the /s option (e.g., FORMAT C:/s) to
format the hard disk.
The /s option causes the system files that start the operating system to be
transferred to the hard disk.
Copy the files of the backup program MSBACKUP from the system disk to the
hard disk (e.g., COPY A:\MSB*.* C:\ ↵ ).
Switch to the hard disk (e.g., C: ↵ ).
Start the backup program MSBACKUP (MSBACKUP ↵ ).
Restore your files from your backup disks to the hard disk with the backup
program's RESTORE function.
If these steps fail to correct the problem with your hard disk, it will have to be
replaced.
