Safety Instructions
Do not allow small children to play unattended with electrical equipment. Children
are incapable of judging potential risks properly.

Keep the packing materials, such as plastic sheet away from children. The danger of
suffocation could arise in the case of misuse.

Do not open the case of the netbook, the battery or the power adaptor. When the
case is open there is a danger of severe electric shock.

Do not insert objects through the slots and openings of the netbook. This may lead
to electric shock, electrical short-circuit or fire that will damage your Netbook.

Slots and openings in the Netbook serve to ventilate it. Do not cover up these
openings, because the Netbook could overheat.

The Netbook is not intended to be operated in a heavy industry company.
Operation under extreme environmental conditions can result in damage to your
Netbook.

Do not operate the Netbook during a thunderstorm, in order to avoid damage
through lightning strike.

Never place objects on top of the Netbook that would exert any pressure on the
display. There is a danger that even slight pressure may break the TFT display.

There is a risk of injury if the TFT display breaks. Use protective gloves to pack up
the broken pieces and contact customer service to arrange for proper disposal. It is
important to thoroughly wash your hands after handling a broken TFT display.
There is a chance that chemicals may have been released.

To avoid damage to the TFT Display, never open it more than 120º. Always hold
the display firmly in the centre when opening up or positioning it. Do not forcibly
open it.

In order to avoid damage to the display, do not touch it with your fingers or sharp
objects.

Never lift the Netbook by the TFT Display; doing so could break the hinges.

Handling
Please follow the instructions in this section for the safe operation of your netbook:
Safety Instructions
3
Switch off your Netbook immediately or do not switch it on at all and contact customer
service …

… if the power cord or the connectors attached to it are burnt or damaged. Replace
the defective power cord with an original power cord. Under no circumstances may
a defective power cord be repaired.

... if the housing of the Netbook is damaged or fluids have leaked into it. Have the
Netbook checked by customer service first, because the Netbook may not be safely
operated otherwise and there may be a life-threatening risk of electrocution!
Data Security
Attention!
Every time you update your data make back-up copies on an external
storage medium. The supplier does not assume liability for data loss or
damage to data storage units, and no claims can be accepted for damages
resulting from the loss of data or consequential losses.
Set-Up Location
4

Keep your Netbook and all connected peripherals away from moisture, dust, heat
and direct sunlight. Failure to do so can lead to Netbook malfunction or damage.

It is highly recommended you do not use the Netbook outdoors.

Operate the Netbook and all peripherals on a stable, balanced and vibration-free
surface.

Do not leave the base of your Netbook on your lap or any part of your body for a
long period of time. The Netbook can become very warm while it is turned on or
charging and can cause discomfort or injury from heat exposure.

In the first hours of operation, new devices may emit a typical, unavoidable but
completely harmless smell, which will decline increasingly in the course of time.
We recommend that you ventilate the room regularly, in order to counteract the
formation of the smell. During the development of this product, we have made
sure that the applicable limits are clearly lowered.
English
The Netbook is most reliably operated at an ambient temperature between +41° (5°
C) and +95° F (35° C) and at a relative humidity between 20% and 70% (without
condensation).

When powered off, the Netbook can be stored at temperatures between 32° and
140° F (0° and 60° C).

Unplug the cable during thunderstorms and make especially sure to remove the
antenna cables, if present. We recommend the use of a surge protector for
additional safety, in order to protect your Netbook from being damaged by power
peaks or lightning strikes through the power network.

Wait until the Netbook has reached ambient (room) temperature before turning it
on or connecting it to the power adapter. Drastic variations in temperature and
humidity can create condensation within the Netbook and may cause it to shortcircuit.

For transporting the Netbook keep the original packing.

maximize battery life and reduce overall operating costs. The power saving modes are
known as sleep mode and hibernate mode.
Safety
Power Management
Sleep Mode
Handling
When in sleep mode, the contents of the RAM of your Netbook are preserved while
practically all other components of your Netbook are shut down, reducing your power
consumption to a minimum. By pressing any key on the keypad, you can bring your
Netbook back to the fully operational state. You will restart at precisely the line in which
you were working prior to the interruption. The computer takes less time to go into and
come out of sleep mode, but uses more power than hibernate mode.
Appendix
Help
The hibernate mode is an alternative to a complete shutdown of the Netbook. In this mode
all data from RAM (system and graphic data) are copied to the hard disk as a file. As soon
as the data has been safely saved, the Netbook powers down. When the Netbook is
switched on again, this file is written back to RAM by the BIOS. In a few moments the
Netbook is in the exact state as when it was last used. If while working on a document the
Netbook is closed (assuming the correct ACPI setting), the Netbook saves the data in RAM
for you automatically. You will restart at precisely the line in which you were working prior
to the interruption. The computer uses no power while it is in hibernate mode, but it takes
a little longer for the computer to go into and come out of hibernation compared to sleep.

What is a network?
A network means connecting your Netbook to one or several other computers. Users can
transfer data between computers and share resources such as printers, modems and hard
disk drives.
Here are some practical examples:

You can exchange E-mail and manage appointments in an office.

Users can share a printer in a network and save their data on a central server.

Two or more computers can be connected to play network games or share data.
Ethernet-Network
If your Netbook has an Ethernet connection, you can use this to connect to a network.
The following explanation refers to Netbooks with a network connector.
Connect one end to the RJ45 connection (Western plug) at the network interface of your

Wireless LAN is an optional feature. This function allows you to create a wireless network
link with an access point or directly with another wireless-enabled PC.
Safety
Wireless LAN
Using the key combination Fn+F2 you can enable or disable the wireless LAN function. A
corresponding LED will light.
Warning!
Handling
Make sure the Wireless LAN option is switched OFF in any environment
where it might interfere with critical and sensitive devices, e.g. on aircraft, in
hospitals and other medical centres, etc.
An access point is a wireless transmitter that communicates with your Netbook and
controls access to the network connection (e.g., a home network or a broadband
connection such as DSL). Wireless access points are often found in offices, airports,
universities or Internet cafés. They offer access to networks or to the Internet. Access
authorizations are normally needed. A fee may be required to use a public access point.
To set up a wireless network to share Internet access, files, and printers at 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 or
Internet Service Provider 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 connection works in accordance with the
*
IEEE 802.11n Standard (compatible with the 802.11b/g Standard).

Troubleshooting within the Network
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/s) and your network computer
is unable to recognize this. If necessary, set the network driver to
the compatible speed.
If two 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”.

Getting to Know Windows® 7
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
Netbook to work quickly and reliably, while being easy to use.
Windows® 7 - News
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 full-screen preview
of the particular window. Moving the cursor away from the miniature closes the fullscreen preview.
Jump lists
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.
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.

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.
Safety
Improved Desktop
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.
Handling
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.
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.
Appendix
Help
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 Netbook.

Homegroup
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 Netbook under Windows® 7 with the home network. The addition of additional PCs
with Windows® 7 to the home network group is quickly accomplished. You can indicate
exactly what should be released on each PC for all other PCs in the home network group.
Finally, the shared use of files on the various home 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 PCs in the house, as long as they are all in the home network
group.

Microsoft is committed to the protection of intellectual property rights and the reduction
of software piracy. Therefore Windows® 7 contains software-based product activation
technology. Your copy of Windows® 7 has already been activated for your Netbook.
Safety
Windows Activation
You will probably need to activate Windows® 7 by telephone even if Internet Activation is
available. This is due to the pre-activated SLP version which runs with a special Product-ID.
However, activation needs your unique Product ID which can be found on the Certificate
of Authenticity sticker on your Netbook housing. When you call, please inform your
agent that you are running an OEM-(SLP) version of the software.
Handling
Product activation is needed if some components of your Netbook have been replaced or
you use a non-authorized BIOS. If necessary you can activate Windows® 7 as often as
requested.
In few cases it may still be required to activate Windows® 7. If activation via the internet is
acknowledged with an error message you should perform the following steps.
1. Please select the telephone activation and click until the related screen appears.
2. Now click on Change Product Key. A new window appears. Enter the product key.
This is located on the Certificate of Authenticity (COA), on the computer’s casing.

System Restore
Windows® 7 provides a useful function (System Restore) enabling the storage of the socalled Recovery points.
The system remembers the current configuration as a snapshot and returns to this, if
necessary. The advantage is that an unsuccessful installation can be cancelled.
Recovery points are created automatically by the system, but they can also be set
manually.
You can determine and configure yourself the maximum memory taken up by this. You
find this program in the program file under Accessories  System Tools.
We recommend setting a recovery point before installing new software or drivers. At this
point if the system does not run properly this recovery point should enable you to return
to a workable configuration without deleting newly created documents. In the next
paragraph you will find your options for the repair of an incorrect installation.
Correction
Windows® 7 includes various functions ensuring that the PC as well as the installed
applications and devices work correctly.
These functions assist you in solving the problems which might occur by adding, deleting
or replacing files required for the functionality of the operating system, the applications
and devices. The recovery function or functions you use depend on the type of occurring
problem or error. For detailed information refer to the Windows help.

Information about conformity
The device fulfils electromagnetic compatibility and electricity safety requirements.
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.
Handling
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
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 1024 x 600 pixel, which are in turn
composed of three sub-pixels each (red, green, blue), contain about
1,8 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
85
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).

Example:
A 17.3” (approx. 43.9 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.
These cases are normally not covered by warranty.
If the number of failures exceeds the figures of any category mentioned above then this
may be covered by the warranty.
