Tips and information for comfortable use
Computer users may complain of eyestrain and headaches after prolonged use. Users are also
at risk of physical injury after long hours of working in front of a computer. Long work
periods, bad posture, poor work habits, stress, inadequate working conditions, personal
health and other factors greatly increase the risk of physical injury.
Incorrect computer usage may lead to carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, tenosynovitis or
other musculoskeletal disorders. The following symptoms may appear in the hands, wrists,
arms, shoulders, neck or back:
•
numbness, or a burning or tingling sensation
•
aching, soreness or tenderness
•
pain, swelling or throbbing
•
stiffness or tightness
•
coldness or weakness
If you have these symptoms, or any other recurring or persistent discomfort and/or pain
related to computer use, consult a physician immediately and inform your company's health
and safety department.
The following section provides tips for more comfortable computer use.
Finding your comfort zone
Find your comfort zone by adjusting the viewing angle of the monitor, using a footrest, or
raising your sitting height to achieve maximum comfort. Observe the following tips:
•
refrain from staying too long in one fixed posture
•
avoid slouching forward and/or leaning backward
vi
•
stand up and walk around regularly to remove the strain on your leg muscles
•
take short rests to relax your neck and shoulders
•
avoid tensing your muscles or shrugging your shoulders
•
install the external display, keyboard and mouse properly and within comfortable reach
•
if you view your monitor more than your documents, place the display at the center of your desk to
minimize neck strain
Taking care of your vision
Long viewing hours, wearing incorrect glasses or contact lenses, glare, excessive room lighting,
poorly focused screens, very small typefaces and low-contrast displays could stress your eyes.
The following sections provide suggestions on how to reduce eyestrain.
Eyes
•
Rest your eyes frequently.
•
Give your eyes regular breaks by looking away from the monitor and focusing on a distant point.
•
Blink frequently to keep your eyes from drying out.
Display
•
Keep your display clean.
•
Keep your head at a higher level than the top edge of the display so your eyes point downward when
looking at the middle of the display.
•
Adjust the display brightness and/or contrast to a comfortable level for enhanced text readability and
graphics clarity.
•
Eliminate glare and reflections by:
•
•
•
•
•
•
placing your display in such a way that the side faces the window or any light source
minimizing room light by using drapes, shades or blinds
using a task light
changing the display's viewing angle
using a glare-reduction filter
using a display visor, such as a piece of cardboard extended from the display's top front edge
•
Avoid adjusting your display to an awkward viewing angle.
•
Avoid looking at bright light sources, such as open windows, for extended periods of time.
Developing good work habits
Develop the following work habits to make your computer use more relaxing and productive:
•
Take short breaks regularly and often.
•
Perform some stretching exercises.
•
Breathe fresh air as often as possible.
•
Exercise regularly and maintain a healthy body.
Warning! We do not recommend using the computer on a couch or bed. If this is
unavoidable, work for only short periods, take breaks regularly, and do some stretching
exercises.

2 Setting up your computer
Arranging a comfortable work area
Positioning your PC
Take note of the following when selecting a location for your computer:
•
Do not put your computer near any equipment that might cause electromagnetic or radio frequency
interference, such as radio transmitters, televisions, copy machines or heating and air-conditioning
equipment.
•
Avoid dusty areas and extremes of temperature and humidity.
•
You may place your computer beside your desk or under your table, as long as it does not block the
space you need for working and moving.
Warning: Do not cover the top mesh to prevent overheating.
•
Your computer comes with a stand that can be easily installed or removed with a coin. Use the stand if
you want to place your computer vertically.
CAUTION: Please use the foot stand when placing your PC in the upright position.
•
To place your PC in a vertical position(for selected models) :
a
b
Rotate the plastic stabilizers on the side of your computer.
Ensure the plastic stabilizers are extended completely.
Connecting peripherals
Setting up your computer is easy. For the most part, you only have four things to connect: the
mouse, the keyboard, the monitor, and the power cable.
Note: The peripherals shown in the connections below are for your reference only. Actual
device models may vary in select countries.
Connecting your mouse and keyboard
(for selected models)
Plug your USB mouse or keyboard cable into any of the USB ports
and rear panels of your computer.
located on the front
Connecting a monitor
To connect a monitor, simply plug the monitor cable into the monitor port
(blue port) or
DVI port located on the rear panel of your computer. Refer to the monitor manual for
additional instructions and information.
Connecting the power cable
Make sure that the AC adapter is properly plugged into the computer and to the power
outlet. Plug the power cable in tightly to avoid accidental shutdown.
3
Caution: Before you proceed, check the voltage range in your area. Make sure that it
matches your computer's voltage setting.
Taking care of your AC adapter
Here are some ways to take care of your AC adapter:
•
Do not connect the adapter to any other device.
•
Do not step on the power cable or place heavy objects on top of it. Carefully route the power cable
and any cables away from foot traffic.
•
When unplugging the power cable, do not pull on the cord itself but pull on the plug.
•
The total ampere ratings of the equipment plugged in should not exceed the ampere rating of the
cord if you are using an extension cord. Also, the total current rating of all equipment plugged into a
single wall outlet should not exceed the fuse rating.
Connecting to the network
You can connect your computer to a Local Area Network (LAN) using a network cable. To do
so, simply plug the network cable into the network port
on the rear panel of your
computer. Consult your network system administrator or operating system manual for
information on how to configure your network setup.
Turning on your computer
After connecting the necessary peripherals and plugging in the power cable, you are now
ready to turn the computer on and get to work.
To turn on your computer:
1
Turn on all peripherals connected to your computer, such as the monitor, printer, speakers, etc.
2
On the front panel of your computer, press the Power button.
Important: Make sure that the power cable is properly plugged into an electrical outlet. If
you are using a power strip or an AVR (Auto-Voltage Regulator), make sure that it is plugged
in and turned on.
Turning off your computer
To turn off your computer, follow the steps below.
For Windows XP/Vista:
1
On the Windows XP/Vista taskbar, click on the Start button, and click Turn Off Computer, then click
Turn Off.
2
Turn off all peripherals connected to your computer.
If you cannot shut down your computer normally, press and hold the power button for at least
four seconds. Quickly pressing the button may put the computer in suspend mode only.
