The notebook uses the Phoenix BIOS Setup program that allows you to set several system
configurations in changing the way the system performs. This includes your system time and
date, disk drive configuration, I/O device controls, boot drive sequence, and power
management settings. The information is then stored in the CMOS RAM chip and will remain
permanent unless you change it again. The notebook also uses EPROM Flash BIOS that
allows you to update the system BIOS by simply overwriting it using the Phoenix Flash
programming utility.
Before boot-up, the system will read the BIOS settings and compare them to the equipment
check conducted during the POST (Power-On Self-Test). If an error occurs, an error message
will be displayed on the screen, and you will then be prompted to run the BIOS Setup
Program. Press the <F2> key to run the BIOS Setup program. The BIOS Setup program is
organized into five menus which you can select using the <ß> and <à> keys. To move from
one option to another, you use the up and down arrow keys.
On the BIOS Setup program, you will find the following parts on the screen:
•
Menu Bar - found on the top line of the screen. Each of the five items has a separate
menu screen.
•
Parameters - found on the left side of the screen. This area lists the parameters and
their current settings.
•
Item Specific Help - found on the right side of the screen. This area describes each
parameter and its available settings.
•
Key Status Bar- the bottom part of the screen. These lines display the keys available
to move the cursor, select a particular function and so forth.
The following table lists the keys on how to edit and move around the setup menus inside.

Notebook Accessories and System Options
It is also important to understand the accessories that come along with the notebook and the
options for fully utilizing the capabilities of the computer. This section describes briefly what
these accessories and options are.
1.6.1
AC Adapter and Power Cord
The AC Adapter supplies external power to your computer and at the same time charges the
internal battery pack. The AC adapter has an auto-switching design that can connect to any
100VAC ~ 240VAC power outlets. Connect the adapter to the AC wall outlet using the power
cord. There is an LED on the AC adapter to indicate if DC power is already available.
1.6.2
Battery Pack
Aside from the AC adapter, your computer can also be powered through the removable
battery pack. The battery pack uses rechargeable or Lithium-Ion (Li-Ion) battery cells that can
run for 2 hours when fully charged and power management enabled. Recharging the battery
takes around 2 hours when the computer is off.
You should always leave the battery inside your computer even when using the AC adapter as
it also acts as back-up power supply in case power from the AC adapter is cut off. It is also
very important to have the battery pack always charged to prevent battery cell degradation. If
the AC adapter is not connected or not available, and the notebook is not going to be used for
some period, it is advisable to remove the battery pack from the notebook to prevent any
current leak.
1.6.3
DVD-ROM Drive
Other than the internal CD-ROM drive, the notebook also provides optional factory built-in
DVD-ROM drive. DVD-ROM drives are also backward compatible with CD-ROM, so you
can also use any audio CDs, video CDs, photo CDs, and CD-R. Using a software MPEG2/DVD program, the notebook can playback any commercial DVD movie titles.
1.6.4
CD-RW Drive
This device pack can write data to CD-R or CD-RW CD for you to backup the data.
1.6.5
CD-RW/DVD Combo Drive
This device pack can write data to CD-R or CD-RW CD for you to backup the data and also
can read DVD/CD title.
