When your computer is turned on or the battery is
charging, the base, the palm rest, and some other
parts may become hot. Avoid keeping your hands,
your lap, or any other part of your body in contact
with a hot section of the computer for any extended
length of time. When you use the keyboard, avoid
keeping your palms on the palm rest for a
prolonged period of time.
Your computer generates some heat during normal
operation. The amount of heat depends on the
amount of system activity and the battery charge
level. Extended contact with your body, even
through clothing, could cause discomfort or even a
skin burn. Periodically take breaks from using the
keyboard by lifting your hands from the palm rest;
and be careful not to use the keyboard for any
extended length of time.
When the ac adapter is connected to an electrical
outlet and your computer, it generates heat. Do not
place the adapter in contact with any part of your
body while using it. Never use the ac adapter to
warm your body. Extended contact with your body,
even through clothing, may cause a skin burn.
© Copyright Lenovo 2007
v
Route the cables of an ac adapter, a mouse, a
keyboard, a printer, or any other electronic device,
or communication lines, so that they cannot be
walked on, tripped over, pinched by your computer
or other objects, or in any way subjected to
treatment that could disturb the operation of your
computer. Applying strong force to the cables may
damage or break them.
Before moving your computer, do one of the
following: turn it off, press Fn+F4 to put it in sleep
mode, or press Fn+F12 to put it in hibernation
mode.
Before moving the computer, make sure that the
power on indicator is off. This will help to prevent
damage to the hard disk drive, and possible loss of
data.
Do not drop, bump, scratch, twist, hit, vibrate, push
or place heavy objects on your computer, display, or
external devices.
Use a quality carrying case that provides adequate
cushion and protection. Do not pack your computer
in a tightly packed suitcase or bag.

Lenovo 3000 N200 Service and Troubleshooting Guide
Chapter 2. Caring for your computer
Though your computer is designed to function reliably in normal work
environments, you need to use common sense in handling it. By following
these important tips, you will get the most use and enjoyment out of your
computer.
Important tips
Be careful about where and how you work
v Do not leave the base of your computer, or any other part that becomes hot
during operation, in contact with your lap or any part of your body for an
extended period when the computer is functioning or when the battery is
charging. Your computer dissipates some heat during normal operation.
This heat is a function of the level of system activity and battery charge
level. Extended contact with your body, even through clothing, could cause
discomfort or, eventually, a skin burn.
v When the ac adapter is connected to an electrical outlet and your computer,
it generates heat. Do not place the adapter in contact with any part of your
body while using it. Never use the ac adapter to warm your body.
Extended contact with your body, even through clothing, may cause a skin
burn.
v Route the cables of an ac adapter, a mouse, a keyboard, a printer, or any
other electronic device, or communication lines, so that they cannot be
walked on, tripped over, pinched by your computer or other objects, or in
any way subjected to treatment that could disturb the operation of your
computer. Applying strong force to the cables may damage or break them.
v Place liquids away from your computer to avoid spills, and keep your
computer away from water (to avoid the danger of electrical shock).
v Store packing materials safely out of the reach of children to prevent the
risk of suffocation from plastic bags.
v Keep your computer away from magnets, activated cellular phones,
electrical appliances, or speakers (within 13 cm or 5 in).
v Avoid subjecting your computer to extreme temperatures (below 5°C/41°F
or above 35°C/95°F).
v Some appliances, such as certain portable desktop fans or air purifiers, can
produce negative ions. If a computer is close to such an appliance, and is
exposed for an extended time to air containing negative ions, it may
become electrostatically charged. Such a charge may be discharged through
your hands when you touch the keyboard or other parts of the computer,
© Copyright Lenovo 2007

Caring for your computer
or through connectors on I/O devices connected to it. Even though this
kind of electrostatic discharge (ESD) is the opposite of a discharge from
your body or clothing to the computer, it poses the same risk of a computer
malfunction.
Your computer is designed and manufactured to minimize any effects of
electrostatic charge. An electrostatic charge above a certain limit, however,
can increase the risk of ESD. Therefore, when using the computer close to
an appliance that can produce negative ions, give special attention to the
following:
– Avoid directly exposing your computer to the air from an appliance that
can produce negative ions.
– Keep your computer and peripherals as far as possible from such an
appliance.
– Wherever possible, ground your computer to facilitate safe electrostatic
discharge.
Note: Not all such appliances cause a significant electrostatic charge.
Be gentle with your computer
v Avoid placing any objects (including paper) between the display and the
keyboard or under the keyboard.
v Do not drop, bump, scratch, twist, hit, vibrate, push, or place heavy objects
on your computer, display, or external devices.
v Your computer display is designed to be opened and used at an angle
slightly greater than 90 degrees. Do not open the display beyond 135
degrees, as this might damage the computer hinge.
Carry your computer properly
v Before moving your computer, be sure to remove any media, turn off
attached devices, and disconnect cords and cables.
v Be sure your computer is in sleep or hibernation mode, or turned off,
before moving it. This will prevent damage to the hard disk drive and data
loss.
v When picking up your open computer, hold it by the bottom. Do not pick
up or hold your computer by the display.
v Use a quality carrying case that provides adequate cushion and protection.
Do not pack your computer in a tightly packed suitcase or bag.
Handle storage media and drives properly
v If your computer comes with an optical drive, do not touch the surface of a
disc or the lens on the tray.
v Wait until you hear the CD or DVD click into the center pivot of an optical
drive before closing the tray.
4
Lenovo 3000 N200 Service and Troubleshooting Guide
Caring for your computer
v When installing your hard disk, follow the instructions shipped with your
hardware, and apply pressure only where needed on the device.
Take care in setting passwords
v Remember your passwords. If you forget a supervisor or hard disk
password, Lenovo authorized service provider will not reset it, and you
might have to replace your system board or hard disk drive.
Other important tips
v Your computer modem might use only an analog telephone network, or
public-switched telephone network (PSTN). Do not connect the modem to a
PBX (private branch exchange) or any other digital telephone extension line
because this could damage your modem. Analog phone lines are often used
in homes, while digital phone lines are often used in hotels or office
buildings. If you are not sure which kind of phone line you are using,
contact your telephone company.
v Your computer might have both an Ethernet connector and a modem
connector. If so, be sure to connect your communication cable to the correct
one, so your connector is not damaged.
v Register your Lenovo products with Lenovo (refer to the Web page:
http://www.lenovo.com/register). This can help authorities return your
computer to you if it is lost or stolen. Registering your computer also
enables Lenovo to notify you about possible technical information and
upgrades.
v Only an authorized Lenovo repair technician should disassemble and repair
your computer.
v Do not modify or tape the latches to keep the display open or closed.
v Take care not to turn your computer over while the ac adapter is plugged
in. This could break the adapter plug.
v Turn off your computer if you are replacing a device, or else verify that the
device is warm- or hot-swappable.
v Before you install any of the following devices, touch a metal table or a
grounded metal object. This action reduces any static electricity from your
body. The static electricity could damage the device.
– ExpressCard
– Smart Card
– Memory Card, such as SD Card, Memory Stick, MultiMediaCard,
xD-Picture Card, and Memory Stick Pro card.
– Memory module
– PCI Express Mini Card
v When transferring data to or from a Flash Media Card, such as an SD card,
do not put your computer in sleep or hibernation mode before the data
transfer is complete. To do so might cause damage to your data.

Caring for your computer
Cleaning the cover of your computer
Occasionally clean your computer as follows:
1. Prepare a mixture of a gentle kitchen-use detergent (one that does not
contain abrasive powder or strong chemicals such as acid or alkaline). Use
5 parts water to 1 part detergent.
2. Absorb the diluted detergent into a sponge.
3. Squeeze excess liquid from the sponge.
4. Wipe the cover with the sponge, using a circular motion and taking care
not to let any excess liquid drip.
5. Wipe the surface to remove the detergent.
6. Rinse the sponge with clean running water.
7. Wipe the cover with the clean sponge.
8. Wipe the surface again with a dry, soft lint-free cloth.
9. Wait for the surface to dry completely and remove any cloth fibers from
the computer surface.
Cleaning your computer keyboard
1. Absorb some isopropyl rubbing alcohol on a soft, dust-free cloth.
2. Wipe each keytop surface with the cloth. Wipe the keys one by one; if you
wipe several keys at a time, the cloth may hook onto an adjacent key and
possibly damage it. Make sure that no liquid drips onto or between the
keys.
3. Allow to dry.
4. To remove any crumbs and dust from beneath the keys, you can use a
camera blower with a brush or cool air from a hair drier.
Note: Avoid spraying cleaner directly on the display or the keyboard.
Cleaning your computer display
1. Gently wipe the display with a dry, soft lint-free cloth. If you see a
scratchlike mark on your display, it might be a stain transferred from the
keyboard when the cover was pressed from the outside.
2. Wipe or dust the stain gently with a soft, dry cloth.
3. If the stain remains, moisten a soft, lint-free cloth with water or a 50-50
mixture of isopropyl alcohol and water that does not contain impurities.
4. Wring out as much of the liquid as you can.
5. Wipe the display again; do not let any liquid drip into the computer.
6. Be sure to dry the display before closing it.
Care for the fingerprint reader
The following actions could damage the fingerprint reader (in some models)
or cause it not to work properly:
6
Lenovo 3000 N200 Service and Troubleshooting Guide
Caring for your computer
v Scratching the surface of the reader with a hard, pointed object.
v Scraping the surface of the reader with your nail or anything hard.
v Using or touching the reader with a dirty finger.
If you notice any of the following conditions, gently clean the surface of the
reader with a dry, soft, lint-free cloth:
v The surface of the reader is dirty or stained.
v The surface of the reader is wet.
v The reader often fails to enroll or authenticate your fingerprint.

Chapter 4. Recovery options
Using Rescue and Recovery
If Windows is not running properly, use the Rescue and Recovery workspace
to help solve or identify your problem. Do the following:
1. Turn off your computer.
2. Press the Lenovo Care button to turn on the computer and immediately
enter the Rescue and Recovery workspace.
3. After the Rescue and Recovery workspace opens, you can do the
following:
v Rescue and restore your files, folders, or backups.
v Configure your computer and passwords.
v Communicate using the Internet and link to the support site.
v Troubleshoot and diagnose problems using diagnostics.
For more information about using Rescue and Recovery features, see the
“Recovery overview” section in online Access Help.
Restoring factory contents
Instead of providing a recovery disc or a Windows disc with your computer,
Lenovo provides simpler alternative methods of accomplishing the tasks
typically associated with these discs. The files and programs for these
alternative methods are on your hard disk, which eliminates having to locate
misplaced discs and problems associated with using an incorrect disc version.
The complete backup of all the files and programs that Lenovo preinstalled on
your computer resides in a hidden protected area, or partition, of the hard
disk. Although hidden, the backups in the partition consume hard disk space.
Therefore, when checking the capacity of your hard disk according to
Windows, you might note that the total capacity of the disk appears to be
smaller than anticipated. This discrepancy is explained by the contents of the
hidden partition.
The Product Recovery Program contained within this area enables you to
restore the complete contents of your hard disk to the same state as it was
when originally shipped from the factory.
Note: The recovery process might take a couple of hours.
To recover the hard disk to its original contents, do the following:

23
Recovery options
Attention: All of the files on the primary hard disk partition (usually drive C)
will be lost in the recovery process. However, before any data is overwritten,
you will be given the opportunity to save one or more files to other media.
1. If possible, save all your files and shut down your operating system.
2. Turn off your computer for at least 5 seconds.
3. Select the On position of the wireless radio switch on your computer.
Note: If you forget to select the On position of the wireless radio switch,
your wireless network card will not be recognized, and the wireless
card driver will not be included in your system.
4. Press the Lenovo Care button to turn on the computer and immediately
enter the Rescue and Recovery workspace.
5. Click Restore your system, select Restore my hard drive to the original
factory state, and follow the instructions on the screen.
Recovering data
If you performed a backup operation using the Rescue and Recovery
program, you also have one or more backups stored that reflect the contents
of the hard disk as it existed at various points in time. These backups might
be stored on your hard disk, or a network drive, or on removable media,
depending on the options you selected during the backup operation.
You can use either the Rescue and Recovery program or the Rescue and
Recovery workspace to restore the contents of the hard disk to an earlier state
using any of the stored backups. You can use the Lenovo Care button to turn
on your computer and enter the Rescue and Recovery workspace that runs
independently of the Windows operating system.
After the Rescue and Recovery workspace opens you can perform a recovery
operation, even if you are unable to start Windows.

PC2-5300 (double data rate 2 (DDR 2) 667) synchronous dynamic random
access memory (DRAM) unbuffered small outline dual inline memory module
(SO-DIMM), available as an option, in the memory slot of your computer.
SO-DIMMs with different capacities are available.
Note: Use only the memory types supported by your computer. If you
incorrectly install the optional memory or install an unsupported
memory type, a warning beep will sound when you try to start the
computer.
To install an SO-DIMM, do the following:
1. Touch a metal table or a grounded metal object. This action reduces any
static electricity in your body, that could damage the SO-DIMM. Do not
touch the contact edge of the SO-DIMM.

Types of warranty service
If required, your Service Provider will provide repair or exchange service
depending on the type of warranty service specified for your Lenovo
hardware product in the above table and as described below. Scheduling of
service will depend upon the time of your call and is subject to parts
availability. Service levels are response time objectives and are not guaranteed.
The specified level of warranty service may not be available in all worldwide
locations, additional charges may apply outside your Service Provider’s
normal service area, contact your local Service Provider representative or your
reseller for country and location specific information.
1. Customer Replaceable Unit (″CRU″) Service
Under CRU Service, your Service Provider will ship CRUs to you for you
to install. Most CRUs are easy to install whereas others may require some
technical skill and tools. CRU information and replacement instructions are
shipped with your product and are available from Lenovo at any time
upon request. You may request that a Service Provider install some CRUs
under one of the other types of warranty service designated for your
product. Installation of external CRUs (such as mice, keyboards, or
monitors) is your responsibility. Lenovo specifies in the materials shipped
with a replacement CRU whether the defective CRU must be returned.
© Copyright Lenovo 2007
41
When return is required, 1) return instructions, a prepaid return shipping
label, and a container are included with the replacement CRU, and 2) you
may be charged for the replacement CRU if your Service Provider does
not receive the defective CRU within thirty (30) days of your receipt of the
replacement.
2. On-site Service
Under On-Site Service, your Service Provider will either repair or
exchange the product at your location. You must provide a suitable
working area to allow disassembly and reassembly of the Lenovo product.
For some products, certain repairs may require your Service Provider to
send the product to a designated service center.
3. Courier or Depot Service
Under Courier or Depot Service, your product will be repaired or
exchanged at a designated service center, with shipping arranged by your
Service Provider. You are responsible for disconnecting the product. A
shipping container will be provided to you for you to return your product
to a designated service center. A courier will pick up your product and
deliver it to the designated service center. Following its repair or exchange,
the service center will arrange the return delivery of the product to you.
4. Customer Carry-In or Mail-In Service
Under Customer Carry-In or Mail-In Service, your product will be
repaired or exchanged at a designated service center, with delivery or
shipping arranged by you. You are responsible to deliver or mail, as your
Service Provider specifies, (prepaid unless specified otherwise) the product
suitably packaged to a designated location. After the product has been
repaired or exchanged, it will be made available for your collection.
Failure to collect the product may result in your Service Provider
disposing of the product as it sees fit. For Mail-in Service, the product will
be returned to you at Lenovo’s expense, unless your Service Provider
specifies otherwise.

Lenovo 3000 N200 Service and Troubleshooting Guide
Appendix B. Customer Replaceable Units (CRUs)
Customer Replaceable Units (CRUs) are computer parts that can be upgraded
or replaced by the customer. There are two types of CRUs: internal and
external. External CRUs are easy to install, whereas internal CRUs require
some technical skills and in some cases might require tools such as a
screwdriver. However, both internal and external CRUs are safe for removal
by the customer.
Customers are responsible for replacing all external CRUs. Internal CRUs can
be removed and installed by customers or by a Lenovo service technician
during the warranty period.
Your computer contains the following types of external CRUs:
v External CRUs (pluggable): These CRUs unplug from the computer.
Examples of these types of CRUs include the ac adapter and power cord.
v External CRUs with latches: These CRUs include a latch to help you
remove and replace the part. Examples of these types of CRUs include the
notebook main battery, an optical drive, a hard-disk drive, and an extended
battery.
Your computer contains the following types of internal CRUs:
v Internal CRUs (located behind an access panel): These CRUs are isolated
parts within the computer that are concealed by an access panel that is
typically secured by either one or two screws. Once the access panel is
removed, only the specific CRU is visible. Examples of these types of CRUs
include memory modules and hard disk drives.
v Internal CRUs (located within the product): These CRUs are accessible
only by opening the computer’s outer case. Examples of these CRUs
include PCI Express Mini Cards and the integrated keyboard.
Online Access Help provides instructions for replacing internal and external
CRUs. To open Access Help, click Start, move the pointer to All Programs;
then to Lenovo Care. Click Access Help.
Additionally, the Service and Troubleshooting Guide (this guide) and Setup
Instructions provide instructions for several critical CRU’s.
If you are unable to access these instructions or if you have difficulty
replacing a CRU, you can use either of the following additional resources:
