Working on Your Computer

Before Working Inside Your Computer

Use the following safety guidelines to help protect your computer from potential damage and to help to ensure your personal safety. Unless otherwise noted, each procedure included in this document assumes that the following conditions exist:

• You have performed the steps in Working on Your Computer.

• You have read the safety information that shipped with your computer.

• A component can be replaced or--if purchased separately--installed by performing the removal procedure in reverse order.

WARNING: Before working inside your computer, read the safety information that shipped with your computer. For additional safety best practices information, see the Regulatory Compliance Homepage at www.dell.com/ regulatory_compliance

CAUTION: Many repairs may only be done by a certified service technician. You should only perform troubleshooting and simple repairs as authorized in your product documentation, or as directed by the online or telephone service and support team. Damage due to servicing that is not authorized by Dell is not covered by your warranty. Read and follow the safety instructions that came with the product.

CAUTION: To avoid electrostatic discharge, ground yourself by using a wrist grounding strap or by periodically touching an unpainted metal surface, such as a connector on the back of the computer.

CAUTION: Handle components and cards with care. Do not touch the components or contacts on a card. Hold a card by its edges or by its metal mounting bracket. Hold a component such as a processor by its edges, not by its pins.

CAUTION: When you disconnect a cable, pull on its connector or on its pull-tab, not on the cable itself. Some cables have connectors with locking tabs; if you are disconnecting this type of cable, press in on the locking tabs before you disconnect the cable. As you pull connectors apart, keep them evenly aligned to avoid bending any connector pins. Also, before you connect a cable, ensure that both connectors are correctly oriented and aligned.

NOTE: The color of your computer and certain components may appear differently than shown in this document.

To avoid damaging your computer, perform the following steps before you begin working inside the computer.

1.

Ensure that your work surface is flat and clean to prevent the computer cover from being scratched.

2.

Turn off your computer.

3.

If the computer is connected to a docking device (docked), undock it.

CAUTION: To disconnect a network cable, first unplug the cable from your computer and then unplug the cable from the network device.

4.

Disconnect all network cables from the computer.

5.

Disconnect your computer and all attached devices from their electrical outlets.

Using a Stylus in a Tablet

The stylus allows you to actively navigate through the menus. You can use it as a mouse and also as a pen.

Using the Stylus as a Mouse

You can use the stylus the same way you use a mouse or touch pad with a notebook computer. Holding the stylus near the display makes a small cursor appear. Moving the stylus moves the cursor. Table 1 describes how to use the stylus.

Gently tap the stylus tip twice in quick succession on the screen of your Tablet PC.

Same as a double-click on a mouse.

Touch the stylus on the screen and hold it in place momentarily until Windows draws a complete circle around the cursor.

Same as a right-click on a mouse.

8

Using the Stylus or Finger on Touch Keyboard

The Touch Keyboard or Handwriting recognition makes it easy to enter text into your applications with the stylus or finer.

Applications like Windows Journal, allow you to write with the stylus directly into the application window.

Touch Keyboard

Some of the Windows text input boxes will bring out the Touch Keyboard automatically when you tap on the boxes.

When it does not come out, you can open the Touch Keyboard by clicking on the keyboard icon on the system toolbar.

The Touch Keyboard is like a standard keyboard will appear on the screen which can be used to enter text by tapping the keys with your stylus pen or finger

Working with Files

You can open, delete, or move many files or folders at one time by selecting multiple items from a list.

1. Hover over one item at a time.

2. Select the check box that appears to the left of each item.

To turn check boxes on:

1. Open Control Panel.

2. Go to Folder options.

3. Click View.

4. Under Advanced settings , select the Use check boxes to select items check box, and then click OK.

Entering Text

You can use handwriting recognition application or the touch keyboard to enter text.

Table 2. Input Panel Icons

Icon Name Function

The touch keyboard is like a standard keyboard, you can enter text by tapping the keys with your stylus or finger.

The touch keyboard is like a standard keyboard, you can enter text by tapping the keys with your stylus or your thumb.

The writing pad and character pad convert handwriting into typed text.

You can write continuously on the writing pad, like writing on a piece of lined paper. Use the character pad to enter one character at a time. The character pad converts your handwriting to typed text, one letter, number or symbol at a time, but does not take the context of the full word into account and does not take advantage of the handwriting dictionary. To switch to the character pad in Input Panel, tap Tools, and then

Write character by character

To minimize the Touch keyboard, click the minimize icon.

Stylus Flicks

Stylus flicks enable you to use the stylus to perform actions that normally require a keyboard, such as pressing <Page

Up> or using the directional arrow keys. Stylus flicks are quick, directional gestures. You can quickly draw a short line in one of eight directions. When a stylus flick is recognized, the Tablet PC performs the action assigned.

9

Pen and Touch Settings

Using the stylus, you can adjust how quickly you tap the screen when you double-tap the screen. It also allows you define the spatial tolerance.

The Press and Hold settings allow you to define the speed and the duration for a right-click action.

10

Touch Usage

One of the key advantages of the Tablet PC is the ability to easily switch from pen input to touch input.

When you use Touch Mode , a translucent image of a computer mouse, called the touch pointer, floats beneath your finger. The touch pointer has left and right mouse buttons that you can tap with your finger. You use the area beneath the buttons to drag the touch pointer.

To show the touch pointer, go to Control Panel

Pen and Touch and clicking on the Touch tab. In the Touch action section, select the option Show visual feedback when touching the screen

Troubleshooting Your Computer

You can troubleshoot your computer using indicators like Diagnostic Lights, Beep Codes, and Error Messages during the operation of the computer.

Enhanced Pre-boot System Assessment (ePSA)

The ePSA is a diagnostic utility available on your computer. This utility includes a series of tests for a computer's hardware. You can run these tests even if the computer lacks any media (hard drive, optical drive, etc.). If a ePSA-tested component fails, the system displays an error code and generates a beep code.

Features

• Graphical User Interface

• Automatic Default Operation- runs test on all devices, allowing a user to interrupt and select any device

• Checks the Master Boot Record for readiness to boot into a full OS environment

• Tablet panel test

• Video memory test

• Battery test

• Charger test

• Event log scan

• Multiprocessor cache test

Running the ePSA Diagnostic Utility

NOTE: The following steps can be used to run the ePSA diagnostic utility in DOS mode without using an external keyboard.

1.

Power on the system and immediately press the <Power> + <Start> buttons simultaneously for a second.

35

2.

The computer will start up and begin running the ePSA utility automatically.

3.

During the testing process, you will be prompted to answer a YES or NO question. To respond, press Volume Up =

YES or Volume Down = NO.

36

4.

Press the Security Button (<Ctrl> + <Alt> + <Del>) to click OK once the tests are completed.

5.

The volume up and down buttons can also be used as the <Tab> key when switching between options.

Beep Codes

The computer may emit a series of beeps during start-up if the display cannot show errors or problems. These series of beeps, called beep codes, identify various problems. The delay between each beep is 300 ms, the delay between each set of beeps is 3 seconds, and the beep sound lasts 300 ms. After each beep and each set of beeps, the BIOS should detect if the user presses the power button. If so, BIOS will jump out from looping and execute the normal shutdown process and power system.
