The Hard Drive
The hard drive is the main storage medium combining large storage capacity and rapid
data access.
The Windows operating system cannot use the full capacity of the hard drive, which
means that there will be a difference between the capacity that the BIOS displays and
what the operating system displays. The operating system of the All-In-One PC, further
application programs and backup files are located on the hard drive and reduce its
total capacity.
Handling
The hard drive contains the operating system of the computer, other application programs and backup files. These programs and files are pre-installed on your All-In-One
PC, so you may note that some of the space on your hard drive is already taken.
The hard drive is addressed as drive C and D.
Never switch off the computer while the busy indicator is lit since this
may result in loss of data. A flickering hard drive display is your indication
that the All-In-One PC is accessing the hard drive.
Usually your hard disk is divided into more partitions. The configuration of your hard
drive can be displayed and configured under "Disk Management". To familiarise yourself with the hard drive configuration, search Windows Help for the key word "Disk
Management".
Components
Note
In your first partition (C:\) you will find the operating system, application programs
and the users’ documents.

Regional Playback Information for DVD
The playback of DVD movies includes the decoding of MPEG2 videos, digital AC3 audio
data and the deciphering of CSS protected contents.
CSS (sometimes called copy guard) is the name of a data protection program incorporated by the movie industry as an action against illegal copies.
Among the numerous regulations for CSS licensees the most important ones are the
country specific playback restrictions.
In order to facilitate the geographically restricted release of movies, DVD titles are released for certain regions.
Copyright laws require the restriction of each DVD movie to a certain region (usually
the region, in which it is sold).
DVD movie versions can be published in several regions but the CSS regulations require that each CSS decipherable system may only be used in one region.
Attention!
The decoding software included with your All-In-One PC may be
changed for regional DVD decoding up to five times, after which the
drive will only play DVD movies for the region setting last entered.
Changing the region code after that will require factory resetting which
is not covered by warranty. If resetting is desired, shipping and resetting
costs will be billed to the user.
Subjects Concerning the CD/DVD-Rewriter
Normal Discs are pressed from a digital, glass master and then sealed. In the case of
blank disc, the information is burnt onto the disc with the laser of the Rewriter. Therefore these discs are more sensitive than normal CDs.
Please avoid the following when using recordable/rewriteable discs - especially blanks that have never before been used:

home, you will need an access point, a router, and a broadband (DSL or cable) modem. Some access points can also serve as a router and/or a broadband modem. Check
with your retailer to find the best solution for your needs.
A link to another computer with wireless LAN functionality can also be created without
an access point. This will allow you to share files, but you will need an access point
and a router to share an Internet connection. The wireless network link works according to standard IEEE 802.11n and is compatible to standard IEEE 802.11 b/g. Other
standards (802.11a etc.) are not supported.

Safety Note
*
The transmission speed (max. 300 Mbp/s ) can vary according to distance and other
factors. If for example the other devices support the 802.11b standard the transmission
speed can be max. 11 Mbp/s.
Appendix
Search for “wireless networking” in Windows Help and Support for more information.

Troubleshooting within the Network
Why does the network environment not show the releases?
The network environment is delayed in time. Check the release by
searching for the respective computer name.
Why does an error message appear when I click on the network environment?
The computer name must be unique on the network and may
not be the same as the task group.
It appears that the network boards are unable to communicate. What
might be the problem?
Maybe one of the used network boards works with a different
speed (e. g. 10 instead 100 Mbit) and your network computer is
unable to recognize this. If necessary, set the network driver to
the compatible speed.
If two All-In-One PCs should be linked you require a cross-link
cable, otherwise use a patch cable.
In addition, check the protocols and the configuration.
The data transmission is incorrect or very slow. What might be the
problem?
Maybe you have the wrong cable (UTP / CAT3 or lower) or the
problem is the proximity of a power cord or another source of
interference.
For further hints on troubleshooting refer to the Windows help under “Network errors”.

Bluetooth wireless technology is designed to replace cables between devices, such as
your printer, keyboard, and mouse.
Safety
Bluetooth (optional)
Bluetooth wireless technology operates over a short distance. Bluetooth devices use
radio transmission, which enables your computer, mobile phone, printer, keyboard,
mouse, and other devices to communicate with each other without cables.
Creating a wireless connection to the Internet with a mobile phone.
Transferring files between computers or between a computer and another device.

Printing to a Bluetooth wireless printer.

Using a Bluetooth wireless keyboard and mouse.

Joining a personal area network (PAN).

Synchronizing a personal digital assistant (PDA) to a computer or another device using Bluetooth wireless technology.
The data transfer speed for Bluetooth wireless technology can be up to 700 kilobits
(Kbp/s) per second. The data transfer speed can vary depending on the device or environmental factors. A Bluetooth device can transmit through walls, pockets, and briefcases.
Since Bluetooth is using the same frequency range as WLAN, simultaneous use might
cause interference. If this should happen you can disable one service temporary.
The Bluetooth function can be activated/deactivated via the symbol

Getting to Know Windows® 7
Handling
With Windows® 7, is launching the new operating system and successor to Vista®.
Windows® 7 contains a number of innovative functions and technologies, enabling
your All-In-One PC to work quickly and reliably, while being easy to use.
Windows® 7 - News
Components
Improved Taskbar
The Taskbar at the bottom of the screen enables you to start programs and change
between programs which are already running. Using Windows® 7, you can place any
program in the Taskbar, so that it will always open with one single click. You can also
arrange the symbols on the Taskbar simply by clicking on them and dragging them to
the desired position. The symbols are also considerably bigger, so that they are easier
to use. Moving the cursor over the symbols will display miniatures of each file or each
window open in the program. Moving the cursor over the miniature displays a fullscreen preview of the particular window. Moving the cursor away from the miniature
closes the full-screen preview.
The jump lists from a few programs, such as Windows® Media Player, can be filled in
advance with frequently used commands. Thus, for example, the Windows® Media
Player jump list might contain options to play all music or to re-open the latest play
list.
The Internet Explorer jump list displays frequently and most recently visited websites.
For certain programs, this enables rapid access commands which, in the past, could
only be retrieved from the program itself, such as the command to create a new e-mail
message.
Software
57
Appendix
Jump lists offer a practical possibility when opening files which you have recently
worked on. To display recently used files, just right-click the application symbol on the
Taskbar. Right-clicking on the Word symbol will display recently used Word documents. You can also easily place other files in the jump list if you would like to have
them readily at hand, in which case they will always be displayed. This allows you to
access documents which you use more frequently, with just a few mouse clicks.
Aid
Jump lists
Improved Desktop
Windows® 7 simplifies working with the windows on the Desktop. This provides you
with more intuitive possibilities for opening and closing, as well as for changing the
size and for rearranging.
Windows® 7 makes the performance of everyday tasks even simpler. For example, the
Snaps function makes it easier than ever to compare two open windows. You do not
need to adjust the size of the open window for comparison. Simply pull the window,
using the mouse, to one of the edges at the side of the screen, and it will fill half the
screen. Snap the window on both sides, and it is already easier than ever to compare
two windows.
If you would like to display all Desktop mini-applications, simply move the mouse into
the lower right hand corner of the Desktop. This makes all open windows transparent,
so that the Desktop and all the mini-applications located on it will be instantly visible.
Click on the Titlebar of the window, "shake" it, and all open windows will be displayed
as symbols on the Taskbar. "Shake" the window again, and the other windows will be
displayed again.
Better device management
Windows® 7 enables you to close, manage and use all devices through the "Devices
and Printers" central function.
All devices are displayed in a central position.
With the new Device Stage Technology, Windows® 7 even goes one step further in
device management. Device Stage helps you use all compatible devices connected to
your computer. Thanks to Device Stage, now you display the device status in one single window and carry out often-used commands. You will even find pictures of the
devices here, easily enabling you to see which devices are connected. The manufacturer of the devices can even adapt Device Stage. If the manufacturer of your camera,
for example, prepares an adapted version of Device Stage, you can see the number of
photos on the camera and receive links to useful information when you link the camera
to the All-In-One PC.
58
English
Safety
With homegroups, a new function of Windows® 7, the linking of home computers is
really simple. A home network group is created automatically, for example, when you
link the first All-In-One PC under Windows® 7 with the home network. The addition of
additional All-In-One PCs with Windows® 7 to the home network group is quickly accomplished. You can indicate exactly what should be released on each All-In-One PC
for all other All-In-One PCs in the home network group. Finally, the shared use of files
on the various home All-In-One PCs, and on many other devices, is so simple that it is
as if all files were located on one single hard drive. This allows you to store digital photos on the computer in your home office and then enjoy easy access to them from a
laptop in any other room in the house. Similarly, the printer in home office is automatically released for all All-In-One PCs in the house, as long as they are all in the home
network group.

There are no user-serviceable or user-cleanable parts inside the All-InOne PC housing.

Before cleaning, always pull the mains cable and all connection cables.
Clean the All-In-One PC with a damp, lint-free cloth.

Dust can clog the air vents, leading to overheating and malfunctioning. Check
at regular intervals (about every 3 months) that all air vents permit sufficient air
circulation. Use a Hoover to keep the air vents clear of dust. If your device regularly sucks in a great deal of dust, we also recommend that the interior of the
All-In-One PC housing be cleaned by a professional.

Do not use solvents, caustic or volatile cleansers.

Before cleaning, always remove the power plug and all connecting cables.
Clean the All-In-One PC with a damp, lint-free cloth. Do not use any solvents,
corrosive or gaseous cleaning agents. Do not use CD-ROM cleaning disks or
similar products that clean the lens of the laser to clean your CD- /DVD-drive.
Note
Protective foil is on the surfaces to protect the device against scratching during production and transportation.
Pull off all the foil after you have set up the device correctly and before bringing it into operation.

Safety
Only a qualified engineer should perform upgrades and repairs to your All-InOne PC.

If you do not have the necessary qualifications, go to an appropriate Service Engineer. Please contact our Service Centre if you are experiencing technical problems with your All-In-One PC.
Notes for Service Engineers

Before opening the housing, disconnect the All-In-One PC from all power
sources and remove any connecting cables. If the All-In-One PC has not been
disconnected from the power outlet before being opened, there is a danger to
life through electric shock. There is also a risk of damage to the components.

Internal components of the All-In-One PC may be damaged by electrostatic discharge (ESD). Carry out system upgrades and changes in an ESD-protected
workshop.
If no such workshop is available, wear an antistatic wrist strap or touch a highly
conductive metal object. Medion can repair damage sustained by inappropriate
handling for a fee.

Use only original spare parts.


By opening the All-In-One PC housing you will gain access to laser devices of up
to Laser Class 3b.
When removing and/or opening laser devices, the following guidelines must be observed:

The CD-ROM-/CDRW-/DVD-drives installed contain no user-serviceable parts.

Only the manufacturer should perform repairs to the CD-ROM-/CDRW-/DVDdrives.

Do not look into the laser beam, even while wearing optical protection.

Do not allow yourself to be exposed to the laser beam. Avoid exposure of the
eyes or skin to direct or stray radiation.

Information about conformity
The device fulfils electromagnetic compatibility and electricity safety requirements.
This device fulfils the basis requirements and the relevant regulation of the Ecodesign
Guideline 2009/125/EG (Commission Regulation 1275/2008).
ISO 13406-2 Class II
Handling
Your device complies with the basic requirements and the relevant guidelines of the
2004/108/EU EMV Guidelines [electromagnetic compatibility] and the 2006/95/EU
Guideline for low voltage devices.
There have been several attempts in the past to define the acceptable number of defective pixels. But this can be difficult and varies widely between different manufacturers.
We, therefore, adhere to the clear and strict requirements of ISO 13406-2,
class II, for the warranty handling of all TFT display products. These requirements are
summarized below.
Components
Active matrix LCDs (TFT) with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels which are in turn
composed of three sub-pixels each (red, green, blue), contain about
6.2 million addressable transistors. Because of this very high number of transistors and
their extremely complex production process occasionally defective or incorrectly addressed pixels or sub-pixels may occur.
Appendix
Aid
Within ISO-standard 13406-2 the general requirements regarding pixel defects are
defined. Pixel defects are classified into three failure types and four failure classes. Each
individual pixel is made up of three sub-pixels in the primary colours (red, green, blue).
Information about conformity
87
Pixel structure
Rows
Blue
Green
Red
Types of Pixel Failures:

Type 1:
A constantly lit pixel (a bright, white spot), even though it is not addressed. A
white pixel is caused when all three sub-pixel are lit.

Type 2:
A pixel that does not light up (dark, black spot), although it is addressed

Type 3:
Abnormal or defective red, green or blue sub-pixels.
(E.g. constantly lit with half the brightness, one colour is not shining, blinking or
flickering, but not belonging to Type 1 or 2 Pixel Failures)
In addition: A cluster of type 3 (= 2 or more defective sub-pixels in an array of 5 x 5
pixel). A cluster is an array of 5 x 5 pixel (15 x 5 sub-pixel).

A 17” (approx. 43 cm) - SXGA-display consists of 1280 horizontal and 1024 vertical
picture dots (pixel), which amounts to a total of 1,31 million pixels. Based on one million pixels this translates into a factor of about 1.31.
Class II type failure consequently allows for three defects each of type 1 and type 2 and
7 defects of type 3 and 3 cluster of type 3.
