CAUTION: Safety Instructions
Use the following safety guidelines to help ensure your own personal safety and to help
protect your device and working environment from potential damage.
SAFETY: General
•
Do not attempt to service the device yourself unless you are a trained service
technician. Always follow installation instructions closely.
•
If you use an extension power cable with your AC adapter, ensure that the total
ampere rating of the products plugged in to the extension power cable does not exceed
the ampere rating of the extension cable.
•
Do not push objects into air vents or openings of your device. Doing so can cause fire
or electric shock by shorting out interior components.
•
Keep your device away from radiators and heat sources. Also, do not block cooling
vents. Avoid placing loose papers underneath your device; do not place your device in
a closed-in wall unit or on a bed, sofa, or rug.
•
Place the AC adapter in a ventilated area, such as a desk top or on the floor, when you
use it to run the device or to charge the battery. Do not cover the AC adapter with
papers or other items that will reduce cooling; also, do not use the AC adapter inside a
carrying case.
•
The AC adapter may become hot during normal operation of your device. Use care
when handling the adapter during or immediately after operation.
•
Do not use your device in a wet environment, for example, near a bath tub, sink, or
swimming pool or in a wet basement.
•
If your device includes an integrated or optional (PC Card) modem, disconnect the
modem cable if an electrical storm is approaching to avoid the remote risk of electric
shock from lightning via the telephone line.
•
To help avoid the potential hazard of electric shock, do not connect or disconnect any
cables or perform maintenance or reconfiguration of this product during an electrical
storm. Do not use your device during an electrical storm unless all cables have been
disconnected and the device is operating on battery power.
•
If your device includes a modem, the cable used with the modem should be
manufactured with a minimum wire size of 26 American wire gauge (AWG) and an
FCC-compliant RJ-11 modular plug.
•
PC Cards may become very warm during normal operation. Use care when removing
PC Cards after their continuous operation.
•
Before you clean your device, disconnect the device from the electrical outlet. Clean
your device with a soft cloth dampened with water. Do not use liquid or aerosol
cleaners, which may contain flammable substances.
Caution: Safety Instructions
11
www.dell.com | support.dell.com
SAFETY: Power
•
Use only the Dell-provided AC adapter approved for use with this device. Use of
another AC adapter may cause a fire or explosion.
•
Before you connect the device to an electrical outlet, check the AC adapter voltage rating
to ensure that the required voltage and frequency match the available power source.
•
To remove the device from all power sources, turn the device off, disconnect the
AC adapter from the electrical outlet, and remove the battery installed in the battery bay.
•
To help prevent electric shock, plug the AC adapter and device power cables into
properly grounded power sources. These power cables may be equipped with 3-prong
plugs to provide an earth grounding connection. Do not use adapter plugs or remove
the grounding prong from the power cable plug. If you use a power extension cable,
use the appropriate type, 2-prong or 3-prong, to mate with the AC adapter power cable.
•
Be sure that nothing rests on your AC adapter’s power cable and that the cable is not
located where it can be tripped over or stepped on.
•
If you are using a multiple-outlet power strip, use caution when plugging the AC adapter’s
power cable into the power strip. Some power strips may allow you to insert the plug
incorrectly. Incorrect insertion of the power plug could result in permanent damage to
your device, as well as risk of electric shock and/or fire. Ensure that the ground prong
of the power plug is inserted into the mating ground contact of the power strip.
SAFETY: Battery
•
Use only Dell™ battery modules that are approved for use with this device. Use of
other types may increase the risk of fire or explosion.
•
Do not carry a battery pack in your pocket, purse, or other container where metal
objects (such as car keys or paper clips) could short-circuit the battery terminals.
The resulting excessive current flow can cause extremely high temperatures and may
result in damage to the battery pack or cause fire or burns.
•
The battery poses a burn hazard if you handle it improperly. Do not disassemble it.
Handle a damaged or leaking battery pack with extreme care. If the battery is
damaged, electrolyte may leak from the cells and may cause personal injury.
•
Keep the battery away from children.
•
Do not store or leave your device or battery pack near a heat source such as a radiator,
fireplace, stove, electric heater, or other heat-generating appliance or otherwise expose
it to temperatures in excess of 60ºC (140ºF). When heated to excessive temperatures,
battery cells could explode or vent, posing a risk of fire.
•
Do not dispose of your device’s battery in a fire or with normal household waste.
Battery cells may explode. Discard a used battery according to the manufacturer’s
instructions or contact your local waste disposal agency for disposal instructions.
Dispose of a spent or damaged battery promptly.
12
Caution: Safety Instructions
SAFETY: Air Travel
•
Certain Federal Aviation Administration regulations and/or airline-specific restrictions
may apply to the operation of your Dell device while you are on board an aircraft.
For example, such regulations/restrictions may prohibit the use of any personal
electronic device (PED) that has the capacity for intentional transmission of radio
frequency or other electromagnetic signals while on an aircraft.
–
In order to best comply with all such restrictions, if your Dell portable device is
equipped with Dell TrueMobile™ or some other wireless communication device,
please disable this device before you board the aircraft and follow all instructions
provided by airline personnel with regard to such device.
–
Additionally, the use of any PED, such as a portable device, may be prohibited in
aircraft during certain critical phases of flight, for example, takeoff and landing.
Some airlines may further define the critical flight phase as any time the aircraft
is below 3050 m (10,000 ft). Please follow the airline’s specific instructions as to
when the use of a PED is allowed.
SAFETY: Electromagnetic Compatibility Instructions
Use shielded signal cables to ensure that you maintain the appropriate electromagnetic
compatibility classification for the intended environment. For parallel printers, a cable is
available from Dell. If you prefer, you can order a cable from Dell at its worldwide website at
www.dell.com.
Static electricity can harm electronic components inside your device. To prevent static
damage, discharge static electricity from your body before you touch any of your device’s
electronic components, such as a memory module. You can do so by touching an unpainted
metal surface.
WARNING: Handling the cord on this product, or cords associated with accessories sold
with this product, will expose you to lead, a chemical known to the State of California to
cause birth defects or other reproductive harm. Wash your hands after handling the cord.
When Using Your Device
Observe the following safe-handling guidelines to prevent damage to your device:
•
When setting up the device for work, place it on a level surface.
•
When traveling, do not check the device as baggage. You can put your device through
an X-ray security machine, but never put your device through a metal detector. If you
have the device checked by hand, be sure to have a charged battery available in case

Caution: Safety Instructions
13
www.dell.com | support.dell.com
•
When you move your device between environments with very different temperature
and/or humidity ranges, condensation may form on or within the device. To avoid
damaging the device, allow sufficient time for the moisture to evaporate before using
the device.
NOTICE: When taking the device from low-temperature conditions into a warmer
environment or from high-temperature conditions into a cooler environment, allow the
device to acclimate to room temperature before turning on power.
•
When you disconnect a cable, pull on its connector or on its strain-relief loop, not on
the cable itself. As you pull out the connector, keep it evenly aligned to avoid bending
any connector pins. Also, before you connect a cable make sure both connectors are
correctly oriented and aligned.
•
Handle components with care. Hold a component such as a memory module by its
edges, not its pins.
•
Clean the display with a soft, clean cloth and water. Apply the water to the cloth; then
stroke the cloth across the display in one direction, moving from the top of the display
to the bottom. Remove moisture from the display quickly and keep the display dry.
Long-term exposure to moisture can damage the display. Do not use a commercial
window cleaner to clean your display.
SAFETY: Ergonomic Computing Habits
CAUTION: Improper or prolonged keyboard use may result in injury.
CAUTION: Viewing the display or external monitor screen for extended periods of
time may result in eye strain.
SAFETY: Protecting Against Electrostatic Discharge
Static electricity can harm electronic components inside your device. To prevent static
damage, discharge static electricity from your body before you touch any of your device’s
electronic components, such as a memory module. You can do so by touching an unpainted
metal surface.
You can also take the following steps to prevent damage from electrostatic discharge (ESD):
•
When unpacking a static-sensitive component from its shipping carton, do not
remove the component from the antistatic packing material until you are ready to
install the component. Just before unwrapping the antistatic packaging, be sure to
discharge static electricity from your body.
•
When transporting a sensitive component, first place it in an antistatic container
or packaging.
•
Handle all sensitive components in a static-safe area. If possible, use antistatic floor
pads and workbench pads.
14

About ActiveSync
You can synchronize the information on your computer with the information
on your device with ActiveSync. Synchronization compares the data on your
device with the data on your computer and updates both with the most recent
information. For example:
•
Keep Microsoft Pocket Outlook data up-to-date by synchronizing your
device with Microsoft Outlook data on your computer.
•
Synchronize Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel files between your device
and your computer. Your files are automatically converted to the correct format.
NOTE: By default, ActiveSync does not automatically synchronize all types of
information. You can change ActiveSync options to synchronize specific types
of information.
With ActiveSync, you can also:
•
Back up and restore your device data.
•
Copy (rather than synchronize) files between your device and your computer.
•
Select a synchronization mode to control when synchronization occurs.
For example, you can synchronize continuously or only when you select
the synchronize command.
•
Select which information types are synchronized and control how much
data is synchronized. For example, you can choose how many weeks of

About Microsoft® Pocket Outlook
Pocket Outlook includes Calendar, Contacts, Tasks, Messaging, and Notes. You
can use these programs individually or together. For example, e-mail addresses
stored in Contacts can be used to address e-mail messages in Messaging.
Using Microsoft ActiveSync®, you can synchronize information in Microsoft
Outlook or Microsoft Exchange on your computer with your device. You can
also synchronize this information directly with an Exchange server. Each time
you synchronize, ActiveSync compares the changes you made on your device
and computer or server and updates both computers with the latest
information. For information on using ActiveSync, see ActiveSync Help on
your computer.
You can switch to any of the following programs through the Start menu.
Calendar
Use Calendar to schedule appointments, including meetings and other events.
You can check your appointments in one of several views (Agenda, Day, Week,

Messaging
Use Messaging to send and receive e-mail messages:
•
Synchronize e-mail messages using Exchange or Outlook on
your computer.
•
Send and receive e-mail messages by connecting directly to an e-mail
server through an ISP or a network.
Synchronizing E-Mail Messages
You can synchronize e-mail messages along with the rest of your data if you
enable Messaging synchronization in ActiveSync. For information on
enabling Messaging synchronization, see ActiveSync Help on your computer.
NOTE: You can also synchronize e-mail messages with your computer from a
remote location. For more information, see "Getting Connected" on page 91.
During synchronization:
•
Messages are copied from the e-mail folders of Exchange or Outlook on
your computer to the ActiveSync folder in Messaging on your device.
By default, you receive:
–
Messages from the past 3 days
–
The first 100 lines of each message
–
File attachments of less than 100 KB in size
•
E-mail messages in the Outbox folder on your device are transferred to
Exchange or Outlook on your computer, and then sent from
those programs.
•
E-mail messages in subfolders on your computer must be selected in
ActiveSync to be transferred.
Connecting Directly to an E-Mail Server
In addition to synchronizing e-mail messages with your computer, you can
send and receive e-mail messages by connecting to an e-mail server using a
modem or network card connected to your device. You need to set up a
remote connection to a network or an ISP, and a connection to your e-mail
server. For more information, see "Getting Connected" on page 91.
64
Scheduling and Communicating
When you connect to the e-mail server:
•
New messages are downloaded to the device Inbox folder.
•
Messages in the device Outbox folder are sent.
•
Messages that have been deleted on the e-mail server are removed from
the device Inbox folder.
Messages that you receive directly from an e-mail server are linked to your
e-mail server rather than to your computer. When you delete a message on
your device, it is also deleted from the e-mail server the next time you
connect depending on the settings you selected in ActiveSync.
When you are working online, you read and respond to messages while
connected to the e-mail server. Messages are sent as soon as you tap Send,
which saves space on your device.
After you have downloaded new message headers or partial messages, you
can disconnect from the e-mail server and then decide which messages to
download completely. The next time you connect, Messaging downloads the
messages you have marked for retrieval and sends the messages you have
composed.
Using the Message List
Messages you receive are displayed in the message list. By default, the most
recently received messages are displayed first in the list.

Managing E-Mail Messages and Folders
By default, messages are displayed in one of five folders for each service you
have created: Inbox, Deleted Items, Drafts, Outbox, or Sent Items. The
Deleted Items folder contains messages that have been deleted on the
device. The behavior of the Deleted Items and Sent Items folders depends
on the options you have selected.To change the options, tap Tools in the
message list and tap Options. On the Message tab, select your options.
To create a new folder, tap Tools, and tap Manage Folders. To move a
message to another folder, tap and hold the message in the message list and
tap Move to on the pop-up menu.
Folder Behavior With a Direct Connection to an E-Mail Server
The behavior of the folders you create depends on whether you use
ActiveSync, POP3, or IMAP4.
•
68
If you use ActiveSync, e-mail messages in the Inbox folder in Outlook
are automatically synchronized with your device. You can select to
synchronize additional folders by designating them for ActiveSync.
The folders you create and the messages you move are then mirrored
on the server. For example, if you move messages from the Inbox folder
to a folder named Family, and you have designated Family for
synchronization, the server creates a copy of the Family folder and
copies the messages into that folder. You can then read the messages
while away from your computer.
Scheduling and Communicating
•
If you use POP3 and you move e-mail messages to a folder you created,
the link is broken between the messages on the device and their copies
on the e-mail server. The next time you connect, the e-mail server
detects that the messages are missing from the device Inbox and
deletes them from the server. This prevents you from having duplicate
copies of a message. However, you no longer have access to messages
that you move to folders created from anywhere except the device.
•
If you use IMAP4, the folders you create and the e-mail messages you
move are mirrored on the server. Therefore, messages are available to
you any time you connect to your e-mail server, whether it is from your
device or computer. This synchronization of folders occurs whenever
you connect to the server, create new folders, or rename/delete folders
when connected.
Notifications
You can set your device to remind you when you have something to do.
For example, if you have set up an appointment in Calendar, a task with a
due date in Tasks, or an alarm in Clock, you are notified in one of the
following ways:
•
A message box appears on the screen.
•
A sound, which you can specify, is played.
•
A light flashes on your device.
To configure the reminders and sounds for your device:
1
Tap the Start button and tap Settings.
2
On the Personal tab, tap Sounds & Notifications.
•
Sounds tab — Adjust the volume and enable sounds.
•
Notifications tab — Set notifications for specific events.

Regulatory Notices
Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) is any signal or emission, radiated in free space or
conducted along power or signal leads, that endangers the functioning of a radio navigation
or other safety service or seriously degrades, obstructs, or repeatedly interrupts a licensed
radio communications service. Radio communications services include but are not limited to
AM/FM commercial broadcast, television, cellular services, radar, air-traffic control, pager,
and Personal Communication Services (PCS). These licensed services, along with
unintentional radiators such as digital devices, including computers, contribute to the
electromagnetic environment.
Electromagnetic Compatibility is the ability of items of electronic equipment to function
properly together in the electronic environment. While this computer has been designed and
determined to be compliant with regulatory agency limits for EMI, there is no guarantee that
interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause
interference with radio communications services, which can be determined by turning the
equipment off and on, you are encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of
the following measures:
•
Reorient the receiving antenna.
•
Relocate the computer with respect to the receiver.
•
Move the computer away from the receiver.
•
Plug the computer into a different outlet so that the computer and the receiver are on
different branch circuits.
If necessary, consult a Dell Technical Support representative or an experienced
radio/television technician for additional suggestions.
Dell™ computers are designed, tested, and classified for their intended electromagnetic
environment. These electromagnetic environment classifications generally refer to the
following harmonized definitions:
•
Class A is typically for business or industrial environments.
•
Class B is typically for residential environments.
Information Technology Equipment (ITE), including devices, expansion cards, printers,
input/output (I/O) devices, monitors, and so on, that are integrated into or connected to the
computer should match the electromagnetic environment classification of the computer.
A Notice About Shielded Signal Cables: Use only shielded cables for connecting devices to
any Dell device to reduce the possibility of interference with radio communications
services. Using shielded cables ensures that you maintain the appropriate Electromagnetic
Compatibility classification for the intended environment. For parallel printers, a cable is
available from Dell. If you prefer, you can order a cable from Dell on the World Wide Web
at accessories.us.dell.com/sna/category.asp?category_id=4117.

What will Dell do?
During the 90 days of the 90-day limited warranty and the first year of all other limited
warranties: During the 90 days of the 90-day limited warranty and the first year of all other
limited warranties, we will repair any Dell-branded hardware products returned to us that
prove to be defective in materials or workmanship. If we are not able to repair the product,
we will replace it with a comparable product that is new or refurbished.
When you contact us, we will issue a Return Material Authorization Number for you to
include with your return. You must return the products to us in their original or equivalent
packaging, prepay shipping charges, and insure the shipment or accept the risk if the product
is lost or damaged in shipment. We will return the repaired or replacement products to you.
We will pay to ship the repaired or replaced products to you if you use an address in the
United States (excluding Puerto Rico and U.S. possessions and territories). Otherwise, we
will ship the product to you freight collect.
Appendix
155
w w w. d e l l . c o m | s u p p o r t . d e l l . c o m
If we determine that the product is not covered under this warranty, we will notify you and
inform you of service alternatives that are available to you on a fee basis.
NOTE: Before you ship the product(s) to us, make sure to back up the data on the hard drive(s)
and any other storage device(s) in the product(s). Remove any confidential, proprietary, or
personal information and removable media such as floppy disks, CDs, or PC Cards. We are not
responsible for any of your confidential, proprietary, or personal information; lost or corrupted
data; or damaged or lost removable media.
During the remaining years: For the remaining period of the limited warranty, we will replace
any defective part with new or refurbished parts, if we agree that it needs to be replaced.
When you contact us, we will require a valid credit card number at the time you request a
replacement part, but we will not charge you for the replacement part as long as you return
the original part to us within 30 days after we ship the replacement part to you. If we do not
receive the original part within 30 days, we will charge to your credit card the then-current
standard price for that part.
We will pay to ship the part to you if you use an address in the United States (excluding
Puerto Rico and U.S. possessions and territories). Otherwise, we will ship the part freight
collect. We will also include a prepaid shipping container with each replacement part for
your use in returning the replaced part to us.
NOTE: Before you replace parts, make sure to back up the data on the hard drive(s) and any
other storage device(s) in the product(s). We are not responsible for lost or corrupted data.
What if I purchased a service contract?
If your service contract is with Dell, service will be provided to you under the terms of the
service agreement. Please refer to that contract for details on how to obtain service.
If you purchased through us a service contract with one of our third-party service providers,
please refer to that contract for details on how to obtain service.
How will you fix my product?
We use new and refurbished parts made by various manufacturers in performing warranty
repairs and in building replacement parts and systems. Refurbished parts and systems are
parts or systems that have been returned to Dell, some of which were never used by a
customer. All parts and systems are inspected and tested for quality. Replacement parts and
systems are covered for the remaining period of the limited warranty for the product you
bought. Dell owns all parts removed from repaired products.
156
Appendix
May I transfer the limited warranty?
Limited warranties on systems may be transferred if the current owner transfers ownership of
the system and records the transfer with us. The limited warranty on Dell-branded memory
may not be transferred. You may record your transfer by going to Dell's website:

purchase price. If you are an end-user customer who bought reconditioned or refurbished
products from Dell, you may return them to Dell within 14 days after the date on the

recommend and encourage you to contact the third-party software and peripheral product
manufacturer or publisher directly.

which Dell is listed as the manufacturer) such as monitors, batteries, memory, docking stations,
and projectors. To determine which limited warranty applies to the product you purchased,
see the Dell packing slip or invoice and/or the product documentation that accompanied
your product. Descriptions of Dell's limited warranties are described in preceding sections.

from a Dell company, you may return Dell Software and Peripherals products that are in as-new
condition to Dell up to 30 days from the date on the packing slip or invoice for a refund of
the product purchase price if already paid. This refund will not include any shipping and
handling charges shown on your packing slip or invoice; you are responsible for those.
To return products, you must call Dell Customer Service at 1-800-387-5759 to receive a
Credit Return Authorization Number. You must ship the Dell Software and Peripherals products
back to Dell in their original manufacturer's packaging (which must be in as-new condition),
prepay shipping charges, and insure the shipment or accept the risk of loss or damage
during shipment.
To qualify for refund or replacement, returned products must be in as-new condition,
software products must be unopened, and all of the manuals, floppy disk(s), CD(s), power
cables, and other items included with a product must be returned with it.

within the guarantee period. The end user must always supply proof of purchase, indicating
name and address of the seller, date of purchase, model and serial number, name and address
of the customer, and details of symptoms and configuration at the time of malfunction,
including peripherals and software used. Otherwise, Dell may refuse the guarantee claim.

ensure that the defective product is available for collection properly packed in original or
equally protective packaging together with the details listed above and the return number
provided to the end user by Dell.
Limitation and Statutory Rights
Dell makes no other warranty, guarantee or like statement other than as explicitly stated
above, and this Guarantee is given in place of all other guarantees whatsoever, to the fullest
extent permitted by law. In the absence of applicable legislation, this Guarantee will be the
end user’s sole and exclusive remedy against Dell or any of its affiliates, and neither Dell nor
any of its affiliates shall be liable for loss of profit or contracts, or any other indirect or
consequential loss arising from negligence, breach of contract, or howsoever.
This Guarantee does not impair or affect mandatory statutory rights of the end user against
and/or any rights resulting from other contracts concluded by the end user with Dell and/or
any other seller.
