source, the battery charge indicators will begin to glow orange. When
each battery is fully charged its indicator will turn green. See the
section entitled Battery Care for tips on maximizing battery life and
performance.
Step 3: Connecting Applicable Peripherals and Networking Cables
If you would like to use any external peripheral with your UMPC
(i.e. USB mouse, USB keyboard, etc.) or are planning to connect
to the Internet and/or a corporate LAN using a wired connection
(RJ45) as opposed to wirelessly, connect the external peripheral
now. See the chapter entitled Touring Your eo TufTab UltraMobile PC, to identify which ports to use.
IMPORTANT: When you power on the a7230XT for the first time,
you will need to have an external USB keyboard connected in order
to complete the Windows XP Professional installation routine. The

4
Chapter 01: Getting Started
NOTE: This same procedure of holding the power button in for
approximately four (4) seconds will also wake the system when it is
asleep or in stand-by mode. Holding the power button in for approximately six (6) seconds when the system is powered on will shut
it off, but this is not recommended unless the operating system has
completely locked up as it can potentially result in data loss.
Step 5: Completing the Operating System Installation
When your system powers on for the first time, Windows will
have a few questions for you to answer in order to localize your
installation.
NOTE: You’ll need a USB keyboard connected to your a7230XT in order
to answer some of the questions that require text input. You can use
the on-screen keyboard with your a7230XD in Active Digitizer mode.
Refer to your operating system’s manual for information on any
of the questions you are unsure how to answer.
When installing Windows 7 Professional, you may need to enter
the Windows 7 Product Key located on the COA (Certificate of
Authenticity) sticker located on the back of the system in battery
two’s (2) bay.
NOTE: If you forgot to write down the Product Key before inserting the
batteries, don’t worry as the batteries are hot swappable. Simple flip
over the eo TufTab and remove battery 2 to view the Windows 7 COA
sticker.
Attaching the Carrying Handle
Your eo TufTab a7230X comes with an included carrying handle
that also doubles as a stylus garage. The handle may be attached
to any side (top, bottom, left, right) of the system using the
attached loops. The top and bottom loops feature nylon straps
and end loops that make attaching the handle markedly easier.
If you prefer to attach the handle to the left or right side of the
eo TufTab, you can easily swap the loops from either the top or
bottom with those on the side. All that is required is a Philips
Head screw driver to remove and reattach the loops as the
brackets are interchangeable.

1. Remove the handle from the packaging and lie it flat with
the Velcro strip side of the strap facing down (or toward the
handle).
Place the Velcro
hooks and loops
(shown here) sections
facing downward. If
they are facing up,
you’ll need to flip the
strap over inside the
handle.
2. Take the end of the strap and pass it through one of the
loops from the inside outward.
3. Then, pass the end through the loop on the other end of the
strap that is sitting inside the handle.

4. From there, pass the end of the strap through the loop on
the opposite side of the eo TufTab, passing it again from the
inside outward.
5. Finally, secure the Velcro (hooks) end to the strap’s Velcro
(loops) strip.
Here is what the handle should look like properly attached
before closing it for carrying.
Chapter 01: Getting Started
7
Attaching the Stylus with the Tether
Your eo TufTab comes with a stylus pen and a tether you can use
to secure the stylus to the system so that you do not drop and/
or lose it.
1. Slip an end loop on the tether, it doesn’t matter which one,
through the hole in the stylus at the top of the clip.
2. Pull the loop all the way through the hole.
3. Slip the other end of the tether through the loop.

Interacting with the Active Digitizer and/or Touch Screen
Unlike a standard laptop or desktop PC, standard navigational
activities on an Ultra-Mobile PC are completed using the stylus
pen, or even your fingers if using the touch screen. The screen
will react to the pen differently depending on whether you are
using the Touch Screen mode or the Active Digitizer mode.
Chapter 01: Getting Started
9
Touch Screen mode
Navigating with a touch screen is different from navigating with
a mouse. The pen will interact with the computer whenever you
touch it to the screen.
Hold the stylus pen as if you were writing with a standard pen.
Instead of sliding the pen around the screen, just tap on what
you want to interact with. Sliding the pen while lightly touching
the tip to the screen will move the on-screen pointer around as
if you were using a mouse and holding down the left mouse
button. In other words, you would be performing what is known
as a drag operation.
Also, remember that since the screen is sensitive to the touch,
resting your hand on the screen while using the pen might make
the pointer react unpredictably.
TIP: When trying to select or activate something on the screen with
the stylus pen, pay attention to the position of the pointer icon instead
of the tip of the pen.
Tapping lightly on the screen will perform a standard left mouse
button click. Holding the tip of the pen against the screen without moving it for about a second or so will perform a standard
right mouse button click.
Active Digitizer mode (a7230XD only)
The eo TufTab a7230XD dual mode screen is auto-sensing. The
screen will default to touch screen mode until is senses that the
writing tip of the stylus pen is near the screen. Once the pen
is close enough to the screen to be detected, the eo TufTab
a7230XD will automatically switch to digitizer mode.
Hold the stylus pen as if you were writing with a standard pen.
Place the tip of the stylus just above the screen and move it
around. The pointer should follow the tip of the pen. In this
mode your hand may rest on the screen, since this will not affect
the behavior of the pointer.
10
Chapter 01: Getting Started
TIP: When trying to select or activate something on the screen with
the stylus pen, pay attention to the position of the pointer icon instead
of the tip of the pen.
Tapping lightly on the screen with the tip of the stylus will
perform a standard left mouse click. If you want to perform a
right mouse click, press and hold down the tip of the stylus
lightly on the screen. In a moment, an animated icon will draw
around the pointer. Lift the stylus from the screen to complete
the button press.
NOTE: Animated cues, or floating tablet tips, will only appear in the
Active Digitizer mode if your eo TufTab is running Windows XP Tablet
PC Edition or Windows 7.
Turning Off Your eo TufTab Ultra-Mobile PC
As with any other PC, it is important that whenever possible
you turn it off using the Shut Down command in your operating
system instead of just pressing the power button.
IMPORTANT: Shutting off the system improperly may result in data
loss or corrupt files.
In Windows 7: Simply tap on the Windows START Button and tap
on the “Shut Down” button at the bottom of the START Menu.
In Windows XP: Simply tap on the Windows START Button and
tap on the “Turn Off Computer” button at the bottom of the
START Menu. When the “Turn off computer” dialog box appears,
simply tap on the “Turn Off” icon.
In the event that the operating system loaded on your eo TufTab
has frozen and you cannot turn off the system normally, you can
force it to shut down by pressing and holding down the power
button until the system powers off (approximately six seconds).

Screen mode is set to Touch Screen by default. When the
stylus pen’s writing tip is within sensing distance—approximately 12-15mm—the screen will automatically switch to
Active Digitizer mode. When the pen’s writing tip is moved
away from the screen, it will switch back to Touch Screen
mode. When in Digitizer mode, the screen is not sensitive
to touch (except by the stylus pen’s writing tip), and thus
resting your hand on the screen while writing or navigating
will have no influence on the pointer’s position.
11. Passive Resistive Touch Screen (a7330T only)
Touch Screen is responsive to touch by any object, as the
screen’s sensors react purely to pressure, as opposed to a
magnetic tip or electrical conduction. Resting your hand
on the screen while writing or navigating may affect the
pointer’s position.

Battery Usage and Care
Depending on your system’s configuration and your application
usage, two fully charged batteries should allow you to run your
eo TufTab a7230X for 4 ~ 5 hours. Remember, however, that the
batteries are hot swappable, which means that with an extra set
of batteries, and an optional Docking Cradle, you could theoretically run the eo TufTab without ever having to power down and
recharge.
Operations that will significantly reduce battery life include, but
are not limited to, the following:
1. Using external, bus-powered USB optical, floppy and hard
disk drives
2. Using wireless communications devices, including the
internal wireless networking card, optional 3G data module
Bluetooth adapter, or bus powered USB devices.
3. Using high-brightness display settings, 3D screen savers, or
other processor intensive programs such as games, media
players and 3D graphics applications.
4. Running the computer in maximum performance mode.
5. Using the computer in overly-hot environmental conditions.
Using the Batteries for the First Time
Before using the computer on battery power for the first time,
the batteries should be charged for at least eight hours. Also, the
Smart Battery IC within the battery pack should be calibrated in
order to get an accurate reporting of the remaining battery life.
Chapter 03: Battery Usage and Care
23
To calibrate the battery pack, follow these steps:
1. Turn the computer off. Connect the AC adapter and let the
battery fully recharge.
2. Disconnect the AC adapter and power on the computer.
Let the battery run down until it is so low that the battery
charge light turns red and the system automatically enters
the Suspend mode.
3. Reconnect the AC adapter, let the battery fully recharge and
then run the computer with the external power still connected for at least five (5) continuous hours.
The battery pack should now be properly calibrated. If you find
that battery life doesn’t correspond to the battery status as
reported by your operating system, repeat steps 2 -3 again.
If after performing a calibration for a second time you still find
you are having a problem with the battery life, contact your
dealer and arrange for a replacement. The battery may be
defective.
In general, using the battery until the “Battery Very Low” warning indicator appears and then fully recharging the battery (full
discharge/charge cycle) will ensure the accuracy of the battery
status gauge.
If you find you are using the computer almost exclusively
attached to an external power source, calibrating at least once a
month is recommended.
Charging the Battery Under Typical Conditions
When you connect the computer to an electrical outlet, the
Smart Battery IC in the battery pack(s) checks the battery’s
charge and temperature. If charging is necessary, the battery
indicators on the front of the eo TufTab will glow orange and the
AC adapter will automatically charge the battery pack(s).
24
Chapter 03: Battery Usage and Care
When fully charged, each battery indicator will change to green
and the batteries’ charge will be maintained while connected to
the external power source. When the computer is disconnected
from the electrical outlet, the battery indicators will turn off.
Below is a table that illustrates how the batteries in the a7230X
are charged:
Both batteries are
lower than 85%
capacity.
The lowest battery is charged to 85%. The
remaining battery is charged to 100%. The
former battery is charged to 100%.
Only one battery
is lower than 85%
capacity
The lowest battery is charged to 100%. The
other battery is charged to 100%.
Both batteries are
higher than 85%
capacity.
The lowest battery is charged to 100%. The
other battery is charged to 100%.
NOTE: The time to fully recharge both battery packs is approximately
4 hours when the computer is powered off. The time to fully recharge
the batteries when the computer is powered on and in use varies according to the power requirements of the operations that the a7230X
is performing while charging. Typically, when running under low CPU
utilization, a full recharge can take close to 6 hours.
Problems Charging the Battery
Environmental conditions can affect the ability of the computer
to charge the battery. If the battery is too hot from either being
used in your computer or being exposed to an overly hot
environment, the battery may not charge when you connect the
computer to an electrical outlet.
If this occurs, disconnect the computer from the electrical outlet
and allow it and the battery to cool to room temperature. Then
reconnect the computer to an electrical outlet to continue
charging the battery.
Chapter 03: Battery Usage and Care
25
Battery Status
Both Windows 7 and Windows XP have an applet in the Control
Panel that will display an icon in the Windows task bar indicating
when the computer is running on battery power or is attached
to the AC adapter.
This applet also displays a meter that indicates approximately
how much of a charge is remaining in the batteries. Typically,
battery discharge is done in stages to help promote battery
integrity and prevent data loss during a hot swap operation.
Battery charging is done in a similar intelligent fashion so that
the battery with the lowest charge remaining is recharged first
when the system is plugged into an external power source.
Low Battery Warnings
When an individual battery’s power falls to 7% of its current
capacity, its battery indicator will begin to blink red. Remember
that if your eo TufTab is running with both batteries installed,
total system power is measured in Windows by the combined
capacity of both batteries. You do not need to become concerned about losing system power when only the first battery
indicator is blinking.
When both battery indicators are blinking red, your system has
safely only a few minutes of charge left depending on what it is
doing and which transmitters are powered on and functioning.
You should save what you are working on and plug in the AC
power adapter to avoid potential data loss.
When there is less than 3% of combined battery charge remaining, the computer will suspend its current state to the hard drive
and power off. Plug in the AC adapter and turn the computer
back on to resume your work.
About Battery Usage
Over time, even with proper care, battery performance (the time
the battery can operate the computer before needing to be
26
Chapter 03: Battery Usage and Care
recharged) will decrease. Depending on how often the battery
is used, how many times it has been charged and the conditions
under which it is used, you may need to purchase a new battery
during the life of your computer.
IMPORTANT: To avoid damage, only use replacement batteries recommended by TabletKiosk. To prevent the loss of data, do not remove
both batteries while the system is powered on unless attached to an
external power source.
NOTE: Do not dispose of batteries with household waste. When your
battery no longer holds a charge, call your local waste disposal or
environmental agency for advice on disposing of Lithium-Ion Polymer
batteries.
Since the a7230X supports hot swapping of batteries, you can
remove either battery to replace it while the system is powered
on. Be sure that the battery remaining in the system is not
drained when you swap the other battery or the system will
power off and you could lose data.
Real Time Clock Battery
In order to maintain certain system information while the power
is off, the motherboard contains a small built-in battery pack that
constantly supplies power to the system.
If the computer is left without a power source for long periods of
time, this battery can be exhausted and system information will
be lost. This will not affect any of your data stored on the computer’s hard drive, but rather the settings in the BIOS that tell the
computer how to operate. It is recommended, therefore, that if
you plan to store the computer for a long time you periodically
attach the battery pack, plug in the computer to an external
power source and allow the built-in battery to recharge.
If you find out, after removing the computer from storage, that
you have lost this system information, by receiving a BIOS error
when you boot up for the first time, contact your dealer or visit
TabletKiosk’s website at www.tabletkiosk.com to obtain the
proper BIOS settings.
Chapter 03: Battery Usage and Care
27
Storing a Battery
When storing your computer for an extended period of time, it is
recommended that you remove the battery pack and store it in
a dry, cool location (Do not freeze). Also, we recommend storing
the battery with a 40 - 50% charge.
If you store the battery when it is fully discharged, it is possible
that the battery could fall into a deeply discharged state. This
can cause the battery to loose its ability to hold any charge at all.
Conversely, storing a fully charged battery can cause damage to
the storage cells rendering its total charge capacity to become
prematurely diminished.
Since a Smart Lithium-Ion battery slowly discharges during
prolonged storage, you should fully recharge the battery before
you use it again. Additionally, you should consider periodically
charging and discharging a battery in long term storage to
promote optimal battery performance and life.
TIP: If storing the batteries for a long period of time, for optimal
battery performance and longevity, we recommend charging and
discharging the batteries every 2 - 3 months. Remember to bring the
charge level to approximately 40 - 50% capacity before replacing into
storage.

Using Your eo TufTab a7230X
with Windows XP
While your eo TufTab a7230X Ultra-Mobile PC is a versatile,
mobile computer capable of accomplishing all the same tasks
as a netbook, and running most all the same applications as
standard laptops and desktop PCs, there are some differences
in the way that you interact with Windows using a stylus pen, or
your fingers, as opposed to a mouse and keyboard. This chapter
contains tips and details to get the most from your eo TufTab
a7230X while using Windows XP.
Navigating with the Stylus Pen
With an Ultra-Mobile PC, you use a stylus pen or your fingers instead of a mouse to interact directly with objects on your screen.
You can open, move, edit and delete items — such as icons, files,
windows and more — with easy-to-use basic functions similar to
those performed with a mouse.

Instead of sliding the pen around on the screen, just tap on what
you want to interact with. In digitizer mode (a7230XD only),
Chapter 04: Using Your eo TufTab a7230X with Windows XP
31
moving the stylus pen’s tip just above the screen will cause the
pointer to follow along similarly to how it behaves when moving
a mouse. Sliding the pen while lightly touching the tip to the
screen will move the on-screen pointer around as if you were
using a mouse and holding down the left mouse button. In other
words, you would be performing a drag operation.
Also, remember that since the screen is sensitive to the touch,
resting your hand on the screen while using the stylus pen might
make the pointer react unpredictably. Actually, this is only true
with the eo TufTab a7230XT, as when using the stylus pen with
an eo TufTab a7230XD the screen will automatically switch to
digitizer mode which is not touch sensitive except to the pen’s tip.
It is also important to note that some of the context-sensitive
features of Windows XP Tablet PC Edition, such as the floating
Input panel icon, will only function when you are using the pen
and your eo TufTab a7230XD is in Active Digitizer mode.
Touch Screen Settings and Calibration (a7230XT)
The eo TufTab a7230XT uses a different touch screen controller
than the a7230XD. The PenMount Control Panel on the a7230XT
allows you to customize the way your touch screen accepts
positional input and responds to the tap of the stylus. The
easiest way to launch this applet is to Tap and hold on the
icon in the system tray and choose “Control Panel” from the
pop-up menu.
The control panel’s
interface is comprised
of four main tabs.
The “Device” tab
and the “Tools” tab
hold the procedures
and settings you’ll
use to configure and
calibrate your touch
screen.
32
Chapter 04: Using Your eo TufTab a7230X with Windows XP
Calibrating the Touch Screen
If you find that the pointer isn’t properly following the touch of
your stylus pen, you might need to calibrate the touch screen.
1. From the
“Device” tab,
tap on the
“PenMount
6000 USB” icon
and then tap
“Configure”.
Alternatively, just
double-tap on
the “PenMount
6000 USB” icon.
2. Tap on the
“Calibrate” tab
and then tap on
either the “Standard Calibration” or the “Advanced
Calibration” button. Most of the time, a Standard Calibration
should be sufficient to perform an accurate calibration.
Chapter 04: Using Your eo TufTab a7230X with Windows XP
33
NOTE: If you find the “Standard Calibration” to be too imprecise, the
“Advanced Calibration” mode offers 4, 9, 16 or 25 points for calibrating. We suggest starting at 9 points. For both modes, it is highly
recommended that you use the stylus, rather than your finger, to
produce to most accurate results.
3. Follow the on-screen instructions by tapping and holding
on each red square that appears until you are told to lift to
proceed. To quit this routine without saving the data, hit
on your keyboard if you have one connected.
4. When the calibration is complete, you can test the screen
accuracy by either tapping around the screen, or using the
“Draw” test in the “Tools” tab in the main window of the
PenMount Control Panel.
34
Chapter 04: Using Your eo TufTab a7230X with Windows XP
If you check the Plot Calibration Data option in the “Advanced
Calibration” mode, a linearity comparison graph will be displayed after the “Advanced Calibration” is complete. The black
lines reflect the ideal linearity assumed by the PenMount control
panel, while the blue lines represent the approximate linearity
calculated by the calibration.
There may be circumstances where you don’t want the calibration data to be stored in the controller. Perhaps you are only running a test, or you want the pre-calibrated state to be restored
when you restart the system. In these cases, checking Turn off
EEPROM storage will disable the write-in of calibration data.
Calibrating the Touch Screen from the Command Prompt
The calibration function can be called from the Windows command prompt, in case you’d like to include it in a batch file, and
map it to one of the eo TufTab’s user programmable function
buttons.
1. To open a command prompt window, go to START > All
Programs > Accessories and tap on Command Prompt.
2. Enter, all on one line: c:\Program
Files\PenMount Universal
Driver\DMCCtrl.exe -calibration (0) to execute a
Standard Calibration.
NOTE: Calibration options available are 0=Standard, 4=Advanced 4pt,
9=Advanced 9pt, 16=Advanced 16pt, and 25=Advanced 25pt.
Touch Mode
The Touch mode affects how the touch screen accepts and
processes input. There are two basic modes of operation: Stream
Mode and Point Mode.
In Mouse Emulation (Stream Mode), positional information is
relayed to the operating system continuously. In this mode
you can place the stylus or your finger on the screen and drag
items around. This is the mode you’ll probably want to use for
standard usage.
Chapter 04: Using Your eo TufTab a7230X with Windows XP
35
Click on Touch (Point Mode) only accepts and relays one positional coordinate each time the stylus or a finger touches the
screen. In order to relay a new positional coordinate to Windows,
you must retouch the screen with your finger or stylus. This
mode is useful for menu or button-driven touch applications —
such as kiosks, P.O.S. or hospitality order taking — that do not
involve tasks that require continuous data input like signature
capture, item dragging or handwriting recognition.
To set the Touch Mode:
1. From the “Device” tab, tap on the “PenMount 6000 USB”
icon and then tap “Configure”. Alternatively, just double-tap
on the “PenMount 6000 USB” icon.
2. Tap on the “Setting” tab and then tap on either option box
in the “Touch Mode” section at the top of the tab.
Audible Beeps
The touch screen can be set to make an audible response each
time the screen is touched. This can be useful for providing users
additional confirmation of a successful input. Additionally, the
type, duration and mode of response can be adjusted.
36
Chapter 04: Using Your eo TufTab a7230X with Windows XP
To enable the audible response:
1. From the “Device” tab, tap on the “PenMount 6000 USB”
icon and then tap “Configure”. Alternatively, just double-tap
on the “PenMount 6000 USB” icon.
2. Tap on the “Setting” tab and then tap the “Beep Sound”
check box to enable.
Sound Type
The “Kind of Sound” drop-down box gives you a choice between
two different types of sound that the screen can make: a “Buzzer
Beep” from the Sahara NetSlate’s internal PC speaker, or an
“Audio Beep” from the internal sound system. If you choose a
“Buzzer Beep”, you can adjust the frequency and duration from
the two sliders located directly below the sound type selection
drop-down box.
Beep Mode
Using the “Beep Mode” option boxes on the “Setting” tab, the
touch action(s) that will trigger the sound can also be specified.
You can set the screen to beep when the screen is pressed (Beep
on Pen Down), when the press is released (Beep on pen up), or
both (Beep on both).
Right-Click Emulation
The touch screen can be set so that when you tap and hold the
pen to the screen, a right button mouse click is perform (this
option is on by default).
To enable or disable the right-click emulation function:
1. From the “Device” tab, tap on the “PenMount 6000 USB”
icon and then tap “Configure”. Alternatively, just double-tap
on the “PenMount 6000 USB” icon.
2. Tap on the “Setting” tab and then tap the “Use press and
hold as right click” check box to enable/disable.
Chapter 04: Using Your eo TufTab a7230X with Windows XP
37
You can adjust the amount of time you must press on the screen
before the right-click is performed (Delay), as well as the size of
the Area that will register the right-click.
NOTE: To enable a right-click function to be activated by the touch of a
finger, set the area larger. To prevent a right-click by anything but the
stylus pen, make the area smaller.
Touch Screen Test and Features
The “Tools” tab in the main TouchMount Control Panel window
contains a few useful features for managing and testing the
touch screen.
Draw
Opens the “Draw Test” window where you can test the accuracy
of your screen’s calibration by drawing on the screen. Using
the “Menu” button in the upper left corner of the test window,
you can hide or show a visual grid, display the pixel coordinate
screen location of the pen’s touch, display the screen registers’
touch active (press and release) as well as clear the screen and
exit the test.
Right Button Icon
Enables a visual mouse icon that allows you to set which mouse
button press will be registered for the following tap on the
38
Chapter 04: Using Your eo TufTab a7230X with Windows XP
screen (left-click or right-click). Useful for when “Right-Click
Emulation” is disabled, or when pressing and holding on the
screen is impractical or cumbersome. You can choose to display
the icon in the System Tray or on the Desktop.
Gesture Enable
Gestures are short-cuts that you can perform with a simple flick
of your finger or pen on the screen, or by drawing a simple,
predetermined shape. For example, with Gestures enabled,
simply dragging in a straight line down the screen can invoke a
page down command, or a “Save File” command, or even launch
a program of your choosing. Using Gestures, you can invoke any
keyboard combination or open any application with the flick of
your finger or the stylus pen.
To enable Gestures, simply tap on the “Gesture Enable” button
so that the square in the center of the button turns yellow. To
disable Gestures, simply tap the button again to change the
square to grey.
Gesture Setting
Allows you to customize the built-in Gesture shapes, tap on the
button to open the “Gesture Setting” panel.
The “Enable” check box at
the top of the panel simply
does the same thing as the
“Gesture Enable” button in
the “Tools” tab.
The “Sensing Time” slider
determines the amount of
time to sense the completion of a Gesture action.
The longer the time set by
the slider, the longer you
can take to draw out the
Gesture on screen.
Chapter 04: Using Your eo TufTab a7230X with Windows XP
39
In the Gesture Settings section, tapping on the Gesture icon
button pops open a window that allows you to choose from all
of the predetermined Gesture motions. With a motion selected,
you can:
™™ disable it by tapping on the “Disable” option box
™™ assign a single key press or keyboard combination to it by
tapping on the “Hot Key” option box, selecting an optional
modifier key check box and then choosing the key from the
drop down list box
™™ choose to launch an application installed on your computer
by tapping on the “Application” option box and then tapping on the “Browse” button to navigate to the application
you wish to launch on your hard drive
™™ or even perform a preset action, such as shutting down your
Sahara NetSlate, by tapping on the “Action” option box and
selecting an action from the drop down box.
Touch Screen Settings and Calibration (a7230XD)
Wacom’s “Touch Settings” Control Panel allows you to customize the way your touch screen behaves as well as calibrate the
screen for more accurate input.
1. Go to the START Menu and tap on
“Control Panel” in the right hand
column.
2. From the Control Panel window,
double-tap on the “Touch Settings”
icon to open the control panel.
Right-Click Emulation
You can enable and disable the “Right-Click” emulation by
tapping the check box in the “Press-and-Hold-to-Right-Click”
section, as well as set the duration that you must hold before a
“Right-Click” is performed by adjusting the slider.
40
Chapter 04: Using Your eo TufTab a7230X with Windows XP
Touch Screen Behavior
The following check boxes will alter the way that the touch
screen behaves. These options have no affect on how the screen
behaviors when in digitizer mode (a7230XD only).
Enable Touch
The “Enable Touch” check box allows you to enable and disable
the touch screen.
NOTE: a7230XT owners should be careful, for if you disable the
touch screen you will need to attach a keyboard or mouse in order to
navigate and interact with your system. a7230XD users can still use the
digitizer. This essentially turns the a7230XD into a pen only system.
Hide Cursor
The “Hide Cursor” check box will hide and show the mouse
pointer when interacting with the touch screen. When this
feature is enabled, the cursor will not be visible when in touch
mode. This is handy for using your system as a button driven
touch screen kiosk or controller.
NOTE: a7230XD users, when the proximity of the stylus pen’s tip autoswitches the screen to digitizer mode, the cursor will appear. Tap on
the screen with something other than the pen’s tip to return to touch
screen mode and re-hide the pointer.
Touch Sound
The “Touch Sound” check box will enable an audible beep to be
produced when the touch screen registers an input. This can be
helpful for supplying kiosk customers or a remote controller user
some feedback to let them know that their input was accepted
(i.e. a button press was registered, etc.).
Calibrating the Touch Screen
Tapping the “Calibrate...” button will initiate the system’s touch
screen calibration routine. Simply follow the instructions that
appear on screen and tap the center of the targets with your

the ground when dropped).
The Sensitivity of HDD Protect threshold slider allows you
to adjust how much gravitational force (or distance fallen)
is required before the system parks the drive heads. Before
52
Chapter 04: Using Your eo TufTab a7230X with Windows XP
adjusting the sensitivity, be aware that when the drive’s heads
are parked, no read/write operations will be possible. So, if while
using the eo TufTab on-the-go, you begin noticing errors from
applications that regularly check for data changes/updates,
adjust the threshold higher. In a typical situation, the heads will
automatically unpark after approximately five seconds when no
motion above the threshold level is detected.
To quickly enable or disable the HDD Protection function without launching this application, simply tap on the Accelerometer
icon in the Task Bar.
means protection is enabled,
means
it is disabled.
The accelerometer also allows for Automatic Screen Rotation.

network key has been improperly entered. Be very careful when
entering this key. If you do not know the correct key to enter,
or still can’t connect after entering the key properly, contact
your network administrator or the technical support line of your
Internet Service Provider (ISP).
Using a Wired LAN
Another way to connect to the Internet with your eo TufTab
a7230X is by a wired LAN environment accessed via the RJ45
port located on the right side of the a7230X (see the chapter
Touring Your eo TufTab a7230X for the exact location). Using
this method, an Ethernet jack or a broadband modem must be
within the reach of the networking cable you are using.

Securing Your eo TufTab a7230X
Your eo TufTab a7230X is equipped with a Trusted Platform
Module (TPM) that, when used in conjunction with specialized
software, can help you better secure your data from intruders.
Used in conjunction with specialized security management
software, a TPM offers facilities for generating cryptographic
keys—as well as the ability to limit the use of such keys for
authentication or encryption/decryption— and also random
numbers. Typical use for such encryption would be to prevent
unauthorized access to the data stored on your hard drive.
The TPM can also be used to authenticate a specific hardware
device for use in platform authentication. For example, the TPM
can be used to verify the authenticity of a specific hardware
system for secured access.
This chapter will get you started by enabling the TPM for use
with your security software management system.
BIOS Settings
To take advantage of the enhanced security features of the
Trusted Computing Platform, you must first enable it in the
tablet’s BIOS.
IMPORTANT: A USB keyboard must be attached to the eo TufTab
a7230XT prior to powering on the system in order to enter and
navigate the a7230X’s BIOS. The a7230XD does not require a keyboard
to navigate the BIOS interface.

screen and tap on, or press, the <F10> key to save changes
to the BIOS and restart the computer. If you don’t wish to
save your changes, simply tap on or press <Esc>.
NOTE: If at any point you wish to clear the TPM module’s information
and return the eo TufTab a7230X to its original “unowned” state, go
back to the “Security” menu and arrow down to a new option that
will be present called “Clearing the TPM” and press <Enter> to open
a screen that will ask you if you are sure you want to clear the TPM.
Choose <Ok> and press <Enter>. When you save changes and exit the
BIOS the TPM will be cleared.
VERY IMPORTANT: If at some point in the future you lose the security
password you will make when you take ownership of the TPM module
(coming up later in this chapter) and then decide to clear the TPM,
know that you will forever lose access to any data on the hard drive
that is encrypted using the TPM’s current encryption key. Make sure
that any data you wish to access in the future has been backed up in an
unencrypted form before clearing the TPM. Also, if you decide to disable and deactivate the TPM, you will lose access to any data currently
encypted by the TPM until you reactivate it.

Chapter 05: Securing Your eo TufTab a7230X
administrator privileges. A standard user can still take advantage
of the protections provided by the TPM, just not manage it.
Contact your IT support staff for more information on user
privileges and how to assign them.
Setting Ownership of the TPM
After initializing the TPM functionality in the BIOS, the next step
to securing your eo a7330 is to establish yourself as the tablet’s
owner.
IMPORTANT: Once you have set ownership of the TPM, it is vital that
you store your password in a secure location and take care never to
lose it. If you do, you will not be able to access the data you protected/
encrypted using your security management software.
Windows XP Professional/Tablet PC Edition
As Windows XP lacks native support for TPM management, you
will need to acquire a third party TPM security management
application to take advantage of its capabilities.
Install and configure the TPM security management software
package of your choice and then refer to the user manual that
accompanied the software for information on how to accomplish this important task.
Windows 7 Professional
To set ownership of the TPM:
NOTE: To perform the following procedure, you must be logged on to
your eo TufTab with an account that has administrator privileges.
1. Go to the START Menu and tap on “All Programs > Accessories > Run” to open the “Run” dialog box.
2. In the “Open” field, enter “tpm.msc” (without the quotes)
and tap “OK” to open the TPM Management Console (TPM
MC). Tap to proceed if the Windows UA prompt appears.
If you followed the steps in the BIOS Settings section earlier
in this chapter, the TPM MC should show the status of the
Chapter 05: Securing Your eo TufTab a7230X
67
TPM as “on” but “not owned”. If the TPM MC shows that you
don’t have a compatible TPM or that it is not on, you either
skipped the steps above or didn’t successfully save the
settings in the BIOS.
The TPM Management Console is where you initialize the TPM to set
the ownership, turn on and off the TPM as well as clear the TPM.
3. In the “Actions” column
on the right side panel of
the TPM MC, tap on
“Initialize TPM...”.
4. On the “Create the
TPM owner password”
page, tap “Automatically create the password
(recommended)” to have
Windows generate your
password automatically,
or “Manually create the
password” to input your
own.
5. After your password has been created or entered, tap “Save
the password” to save a .tpm password file you can use to
make changes to the TPM settings in the future.
68
Chapter 05: Securing Your eo TufTab a7230X
6. In the “Save As” dialog box, select a location to save the
password, and then tap “Save”. The password file is saved as
computer_name.tpm.
IMPORTANT: It is highly recommend that you save the TPM owner
password to removable media.
7. Click “Print the password” if you want to print a hard copy of
your password.
IMPORTANT: It is highly recommend that you print a hard copy of your
TPM owner password and store it in a safe location.
8. Click “Initialize” to
confirm and set the
ownership.
NOTE: The process of initializing the TPM might take a
few minutes to complete,
so be patient. You will be
informed when the process
is complete.
9. Click “Close” to return
back to the TPM MC
main screen.
CAUTION: Do not lose your
password. If you do, you will
be unable to make changes
to your TPM that require
the owner password unless
you first clear the TPM. Once
cleared, all data protected
by the original password will
become unavailable.
To learn more about using the TPM, including turning off the
TPM and clearing the TPM, see the Help articles in the “Links &
Resources” section at the bottom of the main pane of the TPM
Management Console.

port on the right side of the a7230X. Make sure that the a7230X
System Restore Disc is in the USB DVD drive and that the drive
has power and is on.
Step 2: Partitioning the Hard Drive (required for a new Hard
Drive only):
If you are simply attempting to restore your eo TufTab a7230X using
the hard drive that came with your system, you can skip this step
and proceed to Step 3.
You will need to use the software that came with your new hard
drive—or another third party program of your choosing that is
designed to partition hard drives—in order to create a primary
system partition to house the restored OS.
NOTE: At a minimum, any bootable disc containing Microsoft’s
“FDISK.EXE” utility should be sufficient. If you attempt to start the
restore utility before successfully partitioning the drive, the Windows
installer will crash with a B.S.O.D. displaying a “STOP: 0x07” error.
Step 3: Booting the eo TufTab a7230X to the Recovery
Application:
1. Power up your eo TufTab a7230X Ultra-Mobile PC.
2. It will start from the DVD and automatically load the recovery application.
3. Select “OK” to proceed with partition creation.

5. Select “Quit” once the restore process completes to reboot
your eo TufTab a7230X.
6. Immediately eject the DVD or unplug the USB DVD drive
from your eo TufTab a7230X so the system will reboot from
the restored hard drive.
NOTE: If you do not, or cannot, remove the external drive from your
tablet, make sure to go back into the BIOS upon restart to change the
“1st BOOT” option back to the internal hard drive.
What to do After You Have Restored Your System
When your eo TufTab a7230X first boots up after a successful
system restoration, it will behave exactly as it did the very first
time you turned it on. You will need to finish the Windows
localization procedure, customize the installation (including the
networking settings) and then reinstall of your applications.
Before reinstalling your applications, we recommend that you
check the Downloads section of the TabletKiosk website for any
drivers or applications that might have been updated after the
installation disc was created, as well as visit the Windows Update
site for important updates to Windows.
Lastly, make sure to check the Windows Update site for any new
Important or Critical patches.
