Power System
Using AC Power
The Notebook PC power is comprised of two parts, the power adapter and the battery power system.
The power adapter converts AC power from a wall outlet to the DC power required by the Notebook
PC. Your Notebook PC comes with a universal
AC-DC adapter. That means that you may connect the power cord to any 100V-120V as well
as 220V-240V outlets without setting switches or
using power converters. Different countries may
2
require that an adapter be used to connect the
provided US-standard AC power cord to a differ1
3
ent standard. Most hotels will provide universal
outlets to support different power cords as well as
voltages. It is always best to ask an experienced
traveler about AC outlet voltages when bringing
power adapters to another country.
110V
-220
V
You can buy travel kits for the Notebook PC that includes power and modem adapters for almost every country.
WARNING! DO NOT connect the AC power cord to an AC outlet prior to connecting
the DC plug to the Notebook PC. Doing so may damage the AC-DC adapter.
IMPORTANT! Damage may occur if you use a different adapter to power the Notebook PC or use the Notebook PC’s adapter to power other electrical devices. If
there is smoke, burning scent, or extreme heat coming from the AC-DC adapter,
seek servicing. Seek servicing if you suspect a faulty AC-DC adapter. You may damage both your battery pack(s) and the Notebook PC with a faulty AC-DC adapter.
This Notebook PC may come with either a two or three-prong plug depending on
territory. If a three-prong plug is provided, you must use a grounded AC outlet or
use a properly grounded adapter to ensure safe operation of the Notebook PC.
WARNING! THE POWER ADAPTER MAY BECOME WARM TO HOT WHEN IN USE.
BE SURE NOT TO COVER THE ADAPTER AND KEEP IT AWAY FROM YOUR BODY.
Unplug the power adapter or switch off the AC outlet to minimize the power
consumption when the Notebook PC is not in use.

The Notebook PC is designed to work with a removable battery pack. The battery pack consists of
a set of battery cells housed together. A fully charged pack will provide several hours of battery life,
which can be further extended by using power management features through the BIOS setup. Additional battery packs are optional and can be purchased separately through a Notebook PC retailer.
Installing and Removing the Battery Pack
Your Notebook PC may or may not have its battery pack installed. If your Notebook PC does not have
its battery pack installed, use the following procedures to install the battery pack.
IMPORTANT! Never attempt to remove the battery pack while the Notebook PC is
turned ON, as this may result in the loss of working data.

Battery Care
The Notebook PC’s battery pack, like all rechargeable batteries, has a limit on the number times it can
be recharged. The battery pack’s useful life will depend on your environment temperature, humidity,
and how your Notebook PC is used. It is ideal that the battery be used in a temperature range between
10˚C and 35˚C (50˚F and 95˚F). You must also take into account that the Notebook PC’s internal
temperature is higher than the outside temperature. Any temperatures above or below this range will
shorten the life of the battery. But in any case, the battery pack’s usage time will eventually decrease
and a new battery pack must be purchased from an authorized dealer for this Notebook PC. Because
batteries also have a shelf life, it is not recommended to buy extras for storing.
WARNING! For safety reasons, DO NOT throw the battery in fire, DO NOT
short circuit the contacts, and DO NOT disassemble the battery. If there is
any abnormal operation or damage to the battery pack caused by impact,
turn OFF the Notebook PC and contact an authorized service center.

The Notebook PC’s power-ON message appears on the screen when you turn it ON. If necessary, you
may adjust the brightness by using the hot keys. If you need to run the BIOS Setup to set or modify
the system configuration, press [F2] upon bootup to enter the BIOS Setup. If you press [Tab] during
the splash screen, standard boot information such as the BIOS version can be seen. Press [ESC] and
you will be presented with a boot menu with selections to boot from your available drives.
Before bootup, the display panel flashes when the power is turned ON. This is part
of the Notebook PC’s test routine and is not a problem with the display.
IMPORTANT! To protect the hard disk drive, always wait at least 5 seconds after
turning OFF your Notebook PC before turning it back ON.
WARNING! DO NOT carry or cover a Notebook PC that is powered ON with any materials that will reduce air circulation such as a carrying bag.
The Power-On Self Test (POST)
When you turn ON the Notebook PC, it will first run through a series of software-controlled diagnostic tests called the Power-On Self Test (POST). The software that controls the POST is installed
as a permanent part of the Notebook PC’s architecture. The POST includes a record of the Notebook
PC’s hardware configuration, which is used to make a diagnostic check of the system. This record is
created by using the BIOS Setup program. If the POST discovers a difference between the record and
the existing hardware, it will display a message on the screen prompting you to correct the conflict by
running BIOS Setup. In most cases the record should be correct when you receive the Notebook PC.
When the test is finished, you may get a message reporting “No operating system found” if the hard
disk was not preloaded with an operating system. This indicates that the hard disk is correctly detected
and ready for the installation of a new operating system.
Self Monitoring and Reporting Technology
The S.M.A.R.T. (Self Monitoring and Reporting Technology) checks the hard
disk drive during POST and gives a warning message if the hard disk drive requires servicing. If any critical hard disk drive warning is given during bootup,
backup your data immediately and run Windows disk checking program. To run
Window’s disk checking program: click Start > select Computer > right-click
a hard disk drive icon > choose Properties > click the Tools tab > click Check
Now > click Start. You can also select “Scan ... sectors” for more effective scan
and repair but the process will run slower.
IMPORTANT! If warnings are still given during bootup after running a software disk
checking utility, you should take your Notebook PC in for servicing. Continued use
may result in data loss.

Checking Battery Power
The battery system implements the Smart Battery standard under the Windows environment, which
allows the battery to accurately report the amount of charge left in the battery. A fully-charged battery
pack provides the Notebook PC a few hours of working power. But the actual figure varies depending
on how you use the power saving features, your general work habits, the CPU, system memory size,
and the size of the display panel.
Screen captures shown
here are examples only and
may not reflect what you
see in your system.
You will be warned when
battery power is low. If you
continue to ignore the low
battery warnings, the Notebook PC eventually enters
suspend mode (Windows
default uses STR).
Right-click the battery icon
Pointer over the battery icon
without power adapter.
Left-click the battery icon
Pointer over the battery icon
with power adapter.
WARNING! Suspend-to-RAM (STR) does not last long when the battery power is
depleted. STR is not the same as power OFF. STR requires a small amount of power
and will fail and lose data if no power is available due to complete battery depletion
or no power supply (e.g. removing both the power adapter and battery pack).
Charging the Battery Pack
Before you use your Notebook PC on the road, you will have to charge the battery pack. The battery
pack begins to charge as soon as the Notebook PC is connected to external power using the power
adapter. Fully charge the battery pack before using it for the first time. A new battery pack must
completely charge before the Notebook PC is disconnected from external power. It takes a few hours
to fully charge the battery when the Notebook PC is turned OFF and may take twice the time when
the Notebook PC is turned ON. The battery status indicator on the Notebook PC turns OFF when the
battery pack is charged.
The battery starts charging when the charge remaining in the battery drops below
95%. This prevents the battery from charging frequently. Minimizing the recharge
cycles helps prolong battery life.
The battery stops charging if the temperature is too high or the battery voltage is
too high.
26
WARNING! DO NOT leave the battery pack discharged. The battery pack will discharge over time. If not using a battery pack, it must continued to be charged every
three months to extend recovery capacity or else it may fail to charge in the future.

Power Management Modes
The Notebook PC has a number of automatic or adjustable power saving features that you can use to
maximize battery life and lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). You can control some of these features through the Power menu in the BIOS Setup. ACPI power management settings are made through
the operating system. The power management features are designed to save as much electricity as possible by putting components into a low power consumption mode as often as possible but also allow
full operation on demand.
Power management software is enabled as default. Power management feature enables the computer
to switch to low-power mode (or sleep mode) after a period of idle time to reduce the power consumption and to help consumers save electricity cost. For more energy efficiency information, visit ASUS
website at http://csr.asus.com/english/index.aspx#37.
Sleep and Hibernate
Power management settings can be found in the Windows > Control
Panel > Power Options. In System Settings, you can define “Sleep/
Hibernate” or “Shut Down” for closing the display panel or pressing
the power button. “Sleep” and “Hibernate” saves power when your
Notebook PC is not in use by turning OFF certain components. When
you resume your work, your last status (such as a document scrolled
down half way or email typed half way) will reappear as if you never
left. “Shut Down” will close all applications and ask if you want to save
your work if any are not saved.
Sleep is the same as Suspend-to-RAM (STR). This function stores your
current data and status in RAM while many components are turned
OFF. Because RAM is volatile, it requires power to keep (refresh) the
data. Click the Start button and the arrowhead next to the lock icon
to see this option. You can also use the keyboard shortcut [Fn F1] to
activate this mode. Recover by pressing any keyboard key except [Fn].
(NOTE: The power indicator will blink in this mode.)
Hibernate is the same as Suspend-to-Disk (STD) and stores your current data and status on the hard
disk drive. By doing this, RAM does not have to be periodically refreshed and power consumption is
greatly reduced but not completely eliminated because certain wake-up components like LAN needs
to remain powered. “Hibernate” saves more power compared to “Sleep”. Click the Start button and
the arrowhead next to the lock icon to see this option. Recover by pressing the power button. (NOTE:
The power indicator will be OFF in this mode.)

Using the Touchpad
Light pressure with the tip of your finger is all that
is required to operate the touchpad. Because the
touchpad is electrostatic sensitive, objects cannot
be used in place of your fingers. The touchpad’s
primary function is to move the pointer around or

Caring for the Touchpad
4
The touchpad is pressure sensitive. If not properly cared for, it can be easily damaged. Take note of the
following precautions.
• Make sure the touchpad does not come into contact with dirt, liquids or grease.
• Do not touch the touchpad if your fingers are dirty or wet.
• Do not rest heavy objects on the touchpad or the touchpad buttons.
• Do not scratch the touchpad with your finger nails or any hard objects.
The touchpad responds to movement not to force. There is no need to tap the surface
too hard. Tapping too hard does not increase the responsiveness of the touchpad.
The touchpad responds best to light pressure.
Automatic Touchpad Disabling
Windows can automatically disable the Notebook PC’s touchpad when an external USB mouse is
attached.
This feature is normally OFF, to turn ON this feature:
1. Select the option in Windows Control Panel
> Mouse Properties > Elantech.
2. Click the Disable when external USB mouse
plug in check box.

Hard disk drives have higher capacities and operate at much faster speeds than
floppy disk drives and optical drives. The Notebook PC comes with a replaceable hard disk drive. Current hard drives support S.M.A.R.T. (Self Monitoring and
Reporting Technology) to detect hard disk errors or failures before they happen.
When replacing or upgrading the hard drive, always visit an authorized service center
or retailer for this Notebook PC.
IMPORTANT! Poor handling of the Notebook PC may damage the hard disk drive.
Handle the Notebook PC gently and keep it away from static electricity and strong
vibrations or impact. The hard disk drive is the most delicate component and will
likely be the first or only component that is damaged if the Notebook PC is dropped.
IMPORTANT! When replacing or upgrading the hard drive, always visit an
authorized service center or retailer for this Notebook PC.
WARNING! Disconnect all
the connected peripherals,
any telephone or telecommunication lines and power
connector (such as external

Connections
The built-in network cannot be installed later as an upgrade. After purchase, network can be installed as an expansion card.
Network Connection
Connect a network cable, with RJ-45 connectors on each end, to the modem/network port on the
Notebook PC and the other end to a hub or switch. For 100 BASE-TX / 1000 BASE-T speeds, your
network cable must be category 5 or better (not category 3) with twisted-pair wiring. If you plan on
running the interface at 100/1000Mbps, it must be connected to a 100 BASE-TX / 1000 BASE-T hub
(not a BASE-T4 hub). For 10Base-T, use category 3, 4, or 5 twisted-pair wiring. 10/100 Mbps FullDuplex is supported on this Notebook PC but requires connection to a network switching hub with
“duplex” enabled. The software default is to use the fastest setting so no user-intervention is required.
1000BASE-T (or Gigabit) is only supported on selected models.
Twisted-Pair Cable
The cable used to connect the Ethernet card to a host (generally a Hub or Switch)
is called a straight-through Twisted Pair Ethernet (TPE). The end connectors are
called RJ-45 connectors, which are not compatible with RJ-11 telephone connectors. If connecting two computers together without a hub in between, a crossover
LAN cable is required (Fast-Ethernet model). (Gigabit models support autocrossover so a crossover LAN cable is optional.)

BIOS (Basic Input/Output System)
BIOS is a set of routines that affect how the computer transfers data between computer components,
such as memory, disks, and the display adapter. The BIOS instructions are built into the computer’s
read-only memory. BIOS parameters can be configured by the user through the BIOS Setup program.
The BIOS can be updated using the provided utility to copy a new BIOS file into the EEPROM.
Bit (Binary Digit)
Represents the smallest unit of data used by the computer. A bit can have one of two values: 0 or 1.
Boot
Boot means to start the computer operating system by loading it into system memory. When the manual instructs you to “boot” your system (or computer), it means to turn ON your computer. “Reboot”
means to restart your computer. When using Windows 95 or later, selecting “Restart” from “Start |
Shut Down...” will reboot your computer.
Byte (Binary Term)
One byte is a group of eight contiguous bits. A byte is used to represent a single alphanumeric character, punctuation mark, or other symbol.
Clock Throttling
A-16
Chipset function which allows the processor’s clock to be stopped and started at a known duty cycle.
Clock throttling is used for power savings, thermal management, and reducing processing speed.

CPU (Central Processing Unit)
The CPU, sometimes called “Processor,” actually functions as the “brain” of the computer. It interprets and executes program commands and processes data stored in memory.
Device Driver
A device driver is a special set of instructions that allows the computer’s operating system to communicate with devices such as VGA, audio, Ethernet, printer, or modem.
DVD
DVD is essentially a bigger, faster CD that can hold video as well as audio and computer data. With
these capacities and access rates, DVD discs can provide you with dramatically-enhanced high-color,
full-motion videos, better graphics, sharper pictures, and digital audio for a theater-like experience.
DVD aims to encompass home entertainment, computers, and business information with a single digital format, eventually replacing audio CD, videotape, laserdisc, CD-ROM, and video game cartridges.
ExpressCard
ExpressCard slot is 26 pins and support one ExpressCard/34mm or one ExpressCard/54mm expansion
card. This new interface is faster by using a serial bus supporting USB 2.0 and PCI Express instead of
the slower parallel bus used in the PC card slot. (Not compatible with previous PCMCIA cards.)
Hardware
Hardware is a general term referring to the physical components of a computer system, including
peripherals such as printers, modems, and pointing devices.
IDE (Integrated Drive Electronics)
IDE devices integrate the drive control circuitry directly on the drive itself, eliminating the need for a
separate adapter card (in the case for SCSI devices). UltraDMA/66 or 100 IDE devices can achieve up
to 33MB/Sec transfer.
IEEE1394 (1394)
Also known as iLINK (Sony) or FireWire (Apple). 1394 is a high speed serial bus like SCSI but
has simple connections and hot-plugging capabilities like USB. The popular 1394a interface has a
bandwidth of 400Mbits/sec and can handle up to 63 units on the same bus. The newer 1394b interface
can support twice the speed and will appear in future models when peripherals support higher speeds.
1394 is also used in high-end digital equipment and should be marked “DV” for Digital Video port.
Kensington® Locks
Kensington® locks (or compatible) allow the Notebook PC to be secured usually using a metal cable
and lock that prevent the Notebook PC to be removed from a fixed object. Some security products
may also include a motion detector to sound an alarm when moved.

Laser Classifications
As lasers became more numerous and more widely used, the need to warn users of laser hazards became
apparent. To meet this need, laser classifications were established. Current classification levels vary from
optically safe, requiring no controls (Class 1) to very hazardous, requiring strict controls (Class 4).
CLASS 1: A Class 1 laser or laser system emits levels of optical energy that are eye-safe and consequently
require no controls. An example of this class of laser system is the checkout scanning device found
in most grocery stores or lasers used in optical drives.
CLASS 2 & CLASS 3A: Class 2 and Class 3A lasers emit visible, continuous-wave (CW) optical radiation levels slightly above the maximum permissible exposure (MPE) level. Although these lasers
can cause eye damage, their brightness usually causes observers to look away or blink before eye
damage occurs. These lasers have strict administrative controls requiring placement of signs warning
personnel not to stare directly into the beam. Class 3A lasers must not be viewed with optically-aided
devices.
CLASS 3B: Class 3B lasers, and Class 3A lasers with outputs of 2.5mW, are hazardous to personnel
who are within the beam path and look at the beam source directly or by specular reflection. These
lasers cannot produce hazardous diffuse reflections. Personnel working with these lasers should wear
appropriate protective eye wear during any operation of the laser. Class 3B lasers have both administrative and physical controls to protect personnel. Physical controls include limited access work
areas. Administrative controls include special warning signs posted outside the entrances to the laser
work spaces and lights outside the entrances that warn personnel when the lasers are in use.
CLASS 4: Class 4 lasers are high-power lasers that will cause damage to unprotected eyes and skin
through intra-beam viewing and specular or diffuse reflections. Consequently, no personnel should
be in a room where a Class 4 laser is operating without proper eye protection.
PCI Bus (Peripheral Component Interconnect Local Bus)
PCI bus is a specification that defines a 32-bit data bus interface. PCI is a standard widely used by
expansion card manufacturers.
POST (Power On Self Test)
When you turn on the computer, it will first run through the POST, a series of software-controlled diagnostic tests. The POST checks system memory, the motherboard circuitry, the display, the keyboard,
the diskette drive, and other I/O devices.
RAM (Random Access Memory)
RAM (usually just called memory) is the place in a computer where the operating system, application programs, and data in current use are temporarily kept so that they can be quickly reached by the
computer’s processor instead of having to read from and write to slower storage such as the hard disk
or optical disc.

Suspend Mode
In Save-to-RAM (STR) and Save-to-Disk (STD), the CPU clock is stopped and most of the Notebook
PC devices are put in their lowest active state. The Notebook PC enters Suspend when the system remains idle for a specified amount of time or manually using the function keys. The time-out setting of
both Hard Disk and Video can be set by the BIOS Setup. The Power LED blinks when the Notebook
PC is in STR mode. In STD mode, the Notebook PC will appear to be powered OFF.
System Disk
A system disk contains the core file of an operating system and is used to boot up the operating system.
TPM (Trusted Platform Module) (on selected models)
The TPM is a security hardware device on the system board that will hold computer-generated keys
for encryption. It is a hardware-based solution that can help avoid attacks by hackers looking to
capture passwords and encryption keys to sensitive data. The TPM provides the ability to the PC or
Notebook PC to run applications more secure and to make transactions and communication more
trustworthy.
Twisted-Pair Cable
The cable used to connect the Ethernet card to a host (generally a Hub or Switch) is called a straightthrough Twisted Pair Ethernet (TPE). The end connectors are called RJ-45 connectors, which are not
compatible with RJ-11 telephone connectors. If connecting two computers together without a hub in
between, a crossover twisted-pair is required.
UltraDMA/66 or 100
UltraDMA/66 or 100 are new specifications to improve IDE transfer rates. Unlike traditional PIO
mode, which only uses the rising edge of IDE command signal to transfer data, UltraDMA/66 or 100
uses both rising edge and falling edge.
USB (Universal Serial Bus)
A 4-pin serial peripheral bus that allows plug and play computer peripherals such as keyboard, mouse,
joystick, scanner, printer and modem/ISDN to be automatically configured when they are attached
physically without having to install drivers or reboot. With USB, the traditional complex cables from
back panel of your PC can be eliminated.

DVD-ROM Drive Information
The Notebook PC comes with an optional DVD-ROM drive or a CD-ROM drive. In order to view
DVD titles, you must install your own DVD viewer software. Optional DVD viewer software may be
purchased with this Notebook PC. The DVD-ROM drive allows the use of both CD and DVD discs.
Regional Playback Information
Playback of DVD movie titles involves decoding MPEG2 video, digital AC3 audio and decryption of
CSS protected content. CSS (sometimes called copy guard) is the name given to the content protection
scheme adopted by the motion picture industry to satisfy a need to protect against unlawful content
duplication.
Although the design rules imposed on CSS licensors are many, one rule that is most relevant is playback
restrictions on regionalized content. In order to facilitate geographically staggered movie releases, DVD
video titles are released for specific geographic regions as defined in “Region Definitions” below. Copyright laws require that all DVD movies be limited to a particular region (usually coded to the region at
which it is sold). While DVD movie content may be released for multiple regions, CSS design rules require
that any system capable of playing CSS encrypted content must only be capable of playing one region.
The region setting may be changed up to five times using the viewer software, then
it can only play DVD movies for the last region setting. Changing the region code
after that will require factory resetting which is not covered by warranty. If resetting
is desired, shipping and resetting costs will be at the expense of the user.

Internal Modem Compliancy
A
The Notebook PC with internal modem model complies with JATE (Japan), FCC (US, Canada, Korea,
Taiwan), and CTR21. The internal modem has been approved in accordance with Council Decision
98/482/EC for pan-European single terminal connection to the public switched telephone network
(PSTN). However due to differences between the individual PSTNs provided in different countries,
the approval does not, of itself, give an unconditional assurance of successful operation on every
PSTN network termination point. In the event of problems you should contact your equipment supplier in the first instance.
Overview
On 4th August 1998 the European Council Decision regarding the CTR 21 has been published in the
Official Journal of the EC. The CTR 21 applies to all non voice terminal equipment with DTMF-dialling which is intended to be connected to the analogue PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Network).
CTR 21 (Common Technical Regulation) for the attachment requirements for connection to the
analogue public switched telephone networks of terminal equipment (excluding terminal equipment
supporting the voice telephony justified case service) in which network addressing, if provided, is by
means of dual tone multifrequency signalling.
Network Compatibility Declaration
Statement to be made by the manufacturer to the Notified Body and the vendor: “This declaration will
indicate the networks with which the equipment is designed to work and any notified networks with
which the equipment may have inter-working difficulties”
Network Compatibility Declaration
Statement to be made by the manufacturer to the user: “This declaration will indicate the networks
with which the equipment is designed to work and any notified networks with which the equipment
may have inter-working difficulties. The manufacturer shall also associate a statement to make it clear
where network compatibility is dependent on physical and software switch settings. It will also advise
the user to contact the vendor if it is desired to use the equipment on another network.”
Up to now the Notified Body of CETECOM issued several pan-European approvals using CTR 21.
The results are Europe’s first modems which do not require regulatory approvals in each individual
European country.
Non-Voice Equipment
Answering machines and loud-speaking telephones can be eligible as well as modems, fax machines,
auto-dialers and alarm systems. Equipment in which the end-to-end quality of speech is controlled by
regulations (e.g. handset telephones and in some countries also cordless telephones) is excluded.
