m This icon usually means that the computer can’t find system software on the hard
disk or any disks attached to the computer. You may need to reinstall system
software. See the troubleshooting information that came with your computer.
Moving Items on the Screen
You use your PowerBook trackpad to move items and select items on the screen, much as you
use a mouse with a desktop computer. To move the arrow pointer on the screen, slide your
finger across the trackpad. To select, click, or double-click an item on the screen, use the
trackpad button.
Trackpad button
The trackpad is sensitive to how quickly you move your finger. To move the pointer a short
distance across the screen, move your finger slowly across the trackpad. The faster you move
your finger, the farther the pointer moves on the screen.
Tips for Using the Trackpad
For best results when using the trackpad, keep in mind these tips:
m Use only one finger.
m Use only your finger on the trackpad. Do not use a pen or any other object.
m Keep your finger and the trackpad dry. If the trackpad becomes moist from
humidity or condensation, gently wipe it with a clean cloth before you use it.
m Never use any kind of cleaning solution on the trackpad.
Note: You can set the trackpad to double-click and select items directly instead of using the
button. For more information on configuring the trackpad, look in the Help Center, available
from the Help menu.
Adjusting the Internal Display
Before you begin working with your new PowerBook, you may need to adjust your display so
that items on the screen are easy to see.
Adjusting the Brightness
Use the keys labeled with the ¤ icon to adjust screen brightness.
¤ Brightness controls
Adjusting the Display Resolution
You can increase the size of images on your display by switching from the standard resolution
to a scaled resolution. Click the Resolution icon in the Control Strip.

Safety Instructions for Setting Up and Using Your Computer
Plugging In the Power Adapter
Warning Use only the power adapter that came with your Macintosh PowerBook
computer. Adapters for other electronic devices (including other Macintosh PowerBook
models and other portable computers) may look similar, but they may damage your
computer. If your power adapter came equipped with a three-wire grounding plug (a plug
that has a third grounding pin), then this plug will fit only a grounded AC outlet. If you
are unable to insert the plug into the outlet because the outlet is not grounded, contact a
licensed electrician to replace the outlet with a properly grounded outlet. Do not defeat
the purpose of the grounding plug!
m Always leave space around your power adapter. Do not use this equipment in a location
where airflow around the power adapter is confined, such as a bookcase.
m Always disconnect the power adapter and remove the battery before opening the computer
to perform procedures such as installing memory or removing the hard disk.

Notify Your Telephone Company
Some telephone companies require that you notify the local business office when you hook up a modem to their
Information You Need in the United States
The internal modem complies with Part 68 of the FCC rules. On the back of this equipment is a label that
contains, among other information, the FCC registration number and ringer equivalence number (REN). If
requested, provide this information to your telephone company.
m Ringer equivalence number (REN): 0.8 The REN is useful to determine the quantity of devices you may
connect to your telephone lines and still have all those devices ring when your telephone number is called. In
most, but not all areas, the sum of the RENs of all devices connected to one line should not exceed five (5.0).
To be certain of the number of devices you may connect to your line, as determined by the REN, you should
contact your local telephone company to determine the maximum REN for your calling area.
m Telephone jack type: USOC, RJ-11 An FCC-compliant telephone cord and modular plug are provided with this
equipment. This equipment is designed to be connected to the telephone network or premises wiring using a
compatible modular jack that complies with Part 68 rules. See the installation instructions for details.
Telephone Line Problems
If your telephone doesn’t work, there may be a problem with your telephone line. Disconnect the modem to see
if the problem goes away. If it doesn’t, report the problem either to your local telephone company or to your
company’s telecommunications people.
If disconnecting the modem eliminates the problem, the modem itself may need service. See the service and
support information that came with your Apple product for instructions on how to contact Apple or an Appleauthorized service provider for assistance.
If you do not disconnect your modem when it is adversely affecting the telephone line, the telephone company
has the right to disconnect your service temporarily until you correct the problem. The telephone company will
notify you as soon as possible. Also, you will be informed of your right to file a complaint with the FCC.
The telephone company may make changes in its facilities, equipment, operations, or procedures that could
affect the operation of your equipment. If this happens, the telephone company will provide advance notice in
order for you to make the necessary modifications to maintain uninterrupted service.
The optional internal modem will not work with party lines, cannot be connected to a coin-operated telephone,
and may not work with a private branch exchange (PBX).
Telephone Consumer Protection Act
The Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991 makes it unlawful for any person to use a computer or other
electronic device to send any message via a telephone fax machine unless such message clearly contains in a
margin at the top or bottom of each transmitted page or on the first page of the transmission, the date and time it
was sent and an identification of the business or other entity, or individual sending the message and the
telephone number of the sending machine of such business, entity, or individual.
Information You Need in Canada

expire before automatic redialing may be initiated. Failure to set the modem (and any associated communications
software) to the above settings may result in the modem being non-compliant with Australian
telecommunications standards. Under these circumstances a user could be subject to significant penalties under
the Telecommunications Act 1997.

Information You Need in New Zealand
This modem is fully approved to operate on the New Zealand telecommunications network under Telepermit
number PTC 211/98/119. All telecommunications devices are required to hold a Telepermit and be labelled
accordingly with the approved Telepermit number to comply with the New Zealand telecommunications
standards, ensuring the health and safety of the operator and the integrity of the New Zealand
telecommunications network.
Note: Customers in New Zealand who are prompted to choose a country for their modem should choose the
“Australia” country code setting.
To ensure compliance, all calls that are automatically generated should not make more than 10 call attempts to
the same number within any 30 minute period with a minimum period between calls of 30 seconds. Failure to
adhere to these standards may result in the modem being non-compliant with New Zealand Telecom standards.
Under these circumstances a user could be subject to significant penalties.
