Airline adapter is connected and has power.
BOOT SEQUENCE
The procedure for starting up your notebook is called
the Bootup sequence and involves your notebook’s
BIOS. When your LifeBook notebook is first turned on,
the main system memory is empty, and it needs to find
instructions to start up your notebook. This information
is in the BIOS program. Each time you power up or
restart your notebook, it goes through a boot sequence
which displays a Fujitsu logo until your operating system
is loaded. During booting, your notebook is performing
a standard boot sequence including a Power On Self Test
(POST). If the sequence is completed without a failure
and without a request for the BIOS Setup Utility, the
system displays the operating system’s opening screen.

LifeBook S2000 Series – Section Three
Power Management
Your Fujitsu LifeBook notebook has many options and
features for conserving battery power. Some of these
features are automatic and need no user intervention,
such as those for the internal modem. However, others
depend on the parameters you set to best suit your operating conditions, such as those for the display brightness. Internal power management for your notebook
may be controlled from settings made in your operating
system, pre-bundled power management application, or
from settings made in BIOS setup utility.
Besides the options available for conserving battery
power, there are also some things that you can do to
prevent your battery from running down as quickly.
For example, you can create an appropriate power saving
profile, put your notebook into Suspend mode when it
is not performing an operation, and you can limit the
use of high power devices. As with all mobile, battery
powered computers, there is a trade-off between
performance and power savings.
POWER/SUSPEND/RESUME BUTTON
When your LifeBook notebook is active, the Power/
Suspend/Resume button can be used to manually put
your notebook into Suspend mode. Push the Power/
Suspend/Resume button when your notebook is active,
but not actively accessing anything, and immediately
release the button. You will hear two short beeps and
your system will enter Suspend mode. (See figure 2-4 on
page 6 for location)
If your LifeBook is suspended, pushing the Power/
Suspend/Resume button returns your notebook to active
operation. You can tell whether the system is Suspended
by looking at the Power indicator. (See figure 2-4 on
page 6) If the indicator is visible and not flashing, your
notebook is fully operational. If the indicator is visible
and flashing, your notebook is in Suspend mode. If the
indicator is not visible, the power is off or your notebook
is in Hibernation mode. (See Hibernation Feature)
SUSPEND MODE
Suspend or Standby mode in Windows saves the
contents of your LifeBook notebook’s system memory
during periods of inactivity by maintaining power to
critical parts. This mode will turn off the CPU, the
display, the hard drive, and all of the other internal
components except those necessary to maintain system
memory and allow for restarting. Your notebook can be
put in Suspend mode by:
■
■
■
32
Pressing the Power/Suspend/Resume button when
your system is turned on.
Selecting Standby from the Windows Shut Down menu.
Timing out from lack of activity.
■
Allowing the battery to reach the Dead Battery
Warning condition.
Your notebook’s system memory typically stores the file
on which you are working, open application information, and any other data required to support operations
in progress. When you resume operation from Suspend
mode, your notebook will return to the point where it left
off. You must use the Power/Suspend/Resume button to
resume operation, and there must be an adequate power
source available, or your notebook will not resume.
POINTS
■
If you are running your LifeBook notebook on battery
power, be aware that the battery continues to discharge while your notebook is in Suspend mode,
though not as fast as when fully operational.
■
Disabling the Power/Suspend/Resume button prevents it from being used to put your LifeBook notebook in Suspend or Hibernation (Save-to-Disk) mode.
The resume function of the button cannot be disabled.
■
The Suspend or Hibernation (Save-to-Disk) mode
should not be used with certain PC Cards. Check your
PC Card documentation for more information. When
PC Cards or external devices are in use, Hibernation
(Save-to-Disk) mode cannot return to the exact state
prior to suspension, because all of the peripheral
devices will be re-initialized when the system restarts.
■
If your LifeBook notebook is actively accessing information when you enter the Suspend or Hibernation
(Save-to-Disk) mode, changes to open files are not
lost. The files are left open and memory is kept active
during Suspend mode or the memory is transferred to
the internal hard drive during Hibernation mode.
■
The main advantage of using the Hibernation (Saveto-Disk) function is that power is not required to
maintain your data. This is particularly important if
you will be leaving your LifeBook notebook in a suspended state for a prolonged period of time. The
drawback of using Hibernation mode is that it lengthens the power down and power up sequences and
resets peripheral devices.
HIBERNATION (SAVE-TO-DISK) FEATURE
The Hibernation feature saves the contents of your
LifeBook notebook’s system memory to the hard drive as
a part of the Suspend/Resume mode. You can enable or
disable this feature.
Enable or Disable the Hibernation Feature
The default settings is not enabled. To enable or disable
the Hibernation feature follow these easy steps:
1. From the Start menu, select Settings, and then select
Control Panel.
S Series.book Page 33 Wednesday, February 12, 2003 1:39 PM

2. From the Control Panel select Power Options.
3. Select the Hibernation tab. Select the box to enable
or disable this feature.
Using the Hibernation Feature
1. From the Start menu, select Settings, and then select
Control Panel.
2. From the Control Panel select Power Options.
3. Select the Advanced tab. Select Hibernate from the
pull down menu for Power buttons.
DISPLAY TIMEOUT
The Video Timeout is one of the power management
parameters. This feature saves power by turning off the
display if there is no keyboard or pointer activity for the
user selected timeout period. Any keyboard or pointer
activity will cause the display to restart automatically.
This feature is independent of the Power/Suspend/
Resume button and can be enabled and disabled in
Windows and BIOS setup utility. (See BIOS Setup Utility
on page 29 for more information)
HARD DISK TIMEOUT
The Hard Disk Timeout is another one of the power
management parameters. This feature saves power by
turning off the hard drive if there is no hard drive
activity for the user selected timeout period. Any
attempt to access the hard drive will cause it to restart
automatically. This feature is independent of the Power/
Suspend/Resume button and can be enabled and
disabled in Windows and BIOS setup utility. (See BIOS
Setup Utility on page 29 for more information)
WINDOWS POWER MANAGEMENT
Power Management
The Power Management icon located in the Windows
Control Panel allows you to configure some power
management settings. For example, you can use Power
Management to set the timeout values for turning off the
display and hard disks whether you are running the
notebook on battery power or one of the adapters. The
settings may also be changed in the BIOS. (See BIOS
Setup Utility on page 29 for more information)
POINT
Turning off your notebook without exiting Windows, or
turning it on within 10 seconds of being shut off may
cause an error when you start the next time.
POWER OFF
Before turning off the power, check that the Hard Drive,
DVD, CD-ROM, CD-RW, PC Card and Floppy Disk
indicators are all Off. (See figure 2-4 on page 6) If you
power-off while accessing a disk or PC Card there is a
risk of data loss. To ensure that the notebook shuts down
without error, use the Windows shutdown procedure.
CAUTION
Be sure to close all files, exit all applications, and shut
down your operating system prior to turning off the
power. If files are open when you turn the power off,
you will lose any changes that have not been saved,
and may cause disk errors.
Using the correct procedure to shut down from Windows
allows your notebook to complete its operations and turn
off power in the proper sequence to avoid errors. The
proper sequence is:
1. Click the Start button, and then click Shut Down or
Turn Off Computer.
2. Select the Shut Down option from within the
Windows Shut Down dialog box.
3. Click OK to shut down your notebook.
If you are going to store your notebook for a month or
more see Care and Maintenance Section.
RESTARTING THE SYSTEM
If your system is on and you need to restart it, be sure
that you use the following procedure.
1. Click the Start button, and then click Shut Down.
2. Select the Restart option from within the Windows
Shut Down dialog box.
3. Click OK to restart your notebook. Your notebook
will shut down and then reboot.

Lithium ion Battery
Your LifeBook notebook has a Lithium ion battery that
provides power for operating your notebook when no
external power source is available. The battery is durable
and long lasting, but should not be exposed to extreme
temperatures, high voltages, chemicals or other hazards.
The Lithium ion battery operating time may become
shorter if it is used under the following conditions:
■
■
When used at temperatures that exceeds a low of 5°C
or a high of 35°C. Extreme temperatures not only
reduce charging efficiency, but can also cause battery
deterioration. The Charging icon on the Status Indicator panel will flash when you try to charge a battery
that is outside its operating temperature range.
(See Battery Charging Indicators on page 12 for more
information)
When using a high current device such as a modem,
CD-ROM drive, DVD drive, DVD/CD-RW combo
drive, or the hard drive, using the AC adapter will
conserve your battery life.
The Lithium ion battery is recharged internally using
the AC adapter or Auto/Airline adapter. To recharge the
battery make sure the battery that needs to be charged
is installed in your LifeBook notebook and connect the
AC or Auto/Airline adapter.
POINT
Make sure that the Battery Charging indicator and the
percentage charge is shown inside the Battery Level icon
on the Status Indicator Panel.
There is no memory effect on the Lithium ion battery
therefore you do not need to discharge the battery
completely before recharging. The charge times will be
significantly longer if your notebook is in use while the
battery is charging. If you want to charge the battery
more quickly, put your notebook into Suspend mode,
or turn it off while the adapter is charging the battery.
(See Power Management on page 32 for more information
on Suspend mode and shutdown procedure)
CAUTION
Do not leave a faulty battery in your LifeBook
notebook. It may damage your AC adapter, optional
Auto/Airline adapter, another battery or your notebook
itself. It may also prevent operation of your notebook
by draining all available current into the bad battery.
POINTS
■
■
Actual battery life will vary based on screen brightness, applications, features, power management settings, battery condition and other customer
preferences. CD-ROM drive, DVD drive, DVD/CDRW drive combo, or hard drive usage may also have a
significant impact on battery life. The battery charging capacity is reduced as the battery ages. If your
battery is running low quickly, you should replace it
with a new one.
Under federal, state, or local law it may be illegal to
dispose of batteries by putting them in the trash.
Please take care of our environment and dispose of
batteries properly. Check with your local government
authority for details regarding recycling or disposing
of old batteries. If you cannot find this information
elsewhere, contact your support representative at 1800-8FUJITSU (1-800-838-5487)
RECHARGING THE BATTERIES
If you want to know the condition of the primary
Lithium ion battery, check the Battery Level indicator
located on the Status Indicator panel. The indicator
changes as the battery level changes.
POINT
Using heavy current devices such as Modem or frequent
DVD/CD-RW/CD-ROM accesses may prevent charging
completely.
Low Battery State
When the battery is running low, a low battery notification message will appear. If you do not respond to the
low battery message, the batteries will continue to
discharge until they are too low to operate. When this
happens, your notebook will go into Suspend mode.
There is no guarantee that your data will be saved once
the notebook reaches this point.
CAUTIONS
■
Once the low battery notification message appears,
you need to save all your active data and put your
LifeBook notebook into Suspend mode until you can
provide a new power source. You should provide a
charged battery, an AC power adapter, or Auto/Airline adapter as soon as possible.
■
When you are in Suspend mode there must always
be at least one power source active. If you remove all
power sources while your LifeBook notebook is in
Suspend mode, any data that has not been saved to
the hard drive will be lost.
Dead Battery Suspend mode shows on the Status indicator just like the normal Suspend mode. Once your
notebook goes into Dead Battery Suspend mode you
will be unable to resume operation until you provide

a source of power either from an adapter, or a charged
battery. Once you have provided power, you will need to
press the Power/Suspend/Resume button to resume
operation. In the Dead Battery Suspend mode, your data
can be maintained for some time, but if a power source
is not provided promptly, the Power indicator will stop
flashing and go out, meaning that you have lost the data
that was not stored. Once you provide power, you can
continue to use your notebook while an adapter is
charging the battery.
Battery Bay
Release Latch
Shorted Batteries
The Status Indicator panel uses a symbol inside the
battery outline of the Battery Level indicator to display
the operating level available in that battery. (See figure 210 on page 11) If this display shows a Shorted Battery, it
means that the battery is damaged and must be replaced
so it does not damage any other parts of your LifeBook
notebook.

USING DOLBY™ HEADPHONE
The Dolby Headphone utility lets you enjoy multichannel sound sources, such as movies, with realistic
surround sound using your conventional stereo headphones.
Dolby Headphone is a signal processing system that
enables your stereo headphones to realistically portray
the sound of a five-speaker playback system.
POINTS
■
■
Media discs which do not have the Dolby Surround
5:1 symbol will not support Dolby Headphone.
After making changes to the Dolby Headphone
feature and clicking OK, wait at least ten seconds
before making another change in order to allow the
system to stabilize.
To use the Dolby Headphone feature, perform the
following steps:
1. Insert the disc in the media player tray. When you do
so, WinDVD will start automatically.
2. Place your cursor over the Fujitsu logo on the
WinDVD control panel and click on it. If the disc
supports Dolby Surround 5.1, a drop down menu
appears.
3. Verify that Dolby headphones is checked on the
menu. If you do not want it active, select Disable.
USING MEDIA PLAYER ON BATTERY POWER
Since media player drives consume a lot of power, your
overall battery life will be significantly shorter when operating the media player drive continuously (such as
watching a DVD movie) than during standard operation.
Many movies run-times are longer than your LifeBook
notebook can support on a single charged battery. If you
are watching a DVD movie on battery power you may
need to swap in an additional, charged battery or attach
AC power during the movie to view it in its entirety.
To Watch a Movie on Battery Power:
1. Have an additional full-charged battery or your AC
adapter ready for use.
2. Start watching your DVD movie.
3. When the low battery warning occurs, immediately
stop the movie and exit the media player.
CAUTION
If you do not stop the media player quickly and the
LifeBook notebook attempts to auto-suspend (critical
battery low state) the LifeBook notebook will shut
down improperly. If this occurs, you will need to
perform a hard reset and follow the instruction, if any,
presented to you before the system will reboot.
4. Power down your LifeBook notebook and replace
the discharged battery with an additional fullycharged battery. If you do not have an additional
battery, you may attach AC power as soon as you see
the low battery warning.
5. Resume your LifeBook notebook by pressing the
Suspend button again. This is not required if you
attached AC power without entering suspend mode.
6. Restart your media player, locate and skip to the
chapter of the movie you were last watching.
7. Continue watching your DVD movie.
POINT
Some shorter DVD movies may not require you to swap
batteries or attach AC power to complete them.
However, it is best to be prepared since actual battery life
while operating the media player drive cannot be
guaranteed.

It is important to keep in mind that while carrying out
this form of communication, both devices must be
placed so their infrared ports are directly facing each
other without obstruction. The devices must also be
separated by at least 6" but no more than 36" for
maximum performance.
The following conditions may interfere with infrared
communications:
■
■
A television, radio remote control unit, or a wireless
headphone is being used nearby.
Direct sunlight, fluorescent light, or incandescent light
shines directly on the port.

RESTORING YOUR
PRE-INSTALLED SOFTWARE
The Drivers and Applications CD contains:
■
■
■
Sets of device drivers and Fujitsu utilities (in specific
directories) that are unique to your LifeBook notebook configuration for use as documented below.
A link to the Drive Image Special Edition (DISE)
utility on your hard disk drive.
Read-me files that provide additional use information
for items on this CD-ROM.
CAUTION
If the DAR CD is in the drive when you boot up the
system, a message will appear informing you that
continuing to boot from the CD will overwrite all
information on the hard drive, including saved files, and
restore the hard drive to its factory configuration. If you
wish to install drivers or applications only from the CD,
remove the disk from the drive, reboot the system, and
insert the CD after Windows has started.
POINT
If you have access to the internet, visit the Fujitsu
Support web site at www.fujitsupc.com to check for the
most current information, drivers and hints on how to
perform recovery and system updates.
DRIVE IMAGE SPECIAL EDITION (DISE)
PowerQuest Drive Image Special Edition (DISE)
provides a way to restore your computer if you experience a hard disk crash or other system failure. Fujitsu has
used DISE to create an image of everything installed on
the computer at the time you purchased it. The image is
saved on a separate partition on the hard disk. You can
use DISE to restore the factory image and return your
computer to the state in which it was shipped from
Fujitsu.
Although it is not necessary, you can use DISE to store
additional image files that you create. For example, if
you install several applications and save data files on
your hard disk, you can create a new image file that
includes them and then save that image file on the hard
disk. Then, in the event of a hard disk failure, you can
restore the image that includes the applications and data
files you use.
POINT
Using the DISE feature will reduce the amount of usable
disk space on your hard disk drive.
66
Creating a Backup Image
You can create a backup image of your C:\ drive at any
time. The C:\ partition must be a FAT, FAT32, or NTFS
partition, and it must be directly before the backup
partition on your hard disk.
There are two ways to implement the DISE utility: When
booting up the system, or from the desktop.
Creating a backup image when booting up
Before creating a backup image at boot-up, you must
first change the boot-up priority in the BIOS so that the
system will go to the CD drive first, rather than trying to
boot-up from the hard drive or an external floppy disk
drive.
To change the boot-up priority:
1. Start your system and press the [F2] key when the
Fujitsu logo appears. You will enter the BIOS Setup
Utility.
2. Using the arrow keys, go to the Boot menu.
3. Arrow down to the Boot Device Priority submenu
and press [Enter].
4. Arrow down to the CD-ROM drive in the list, and
press the space bar (or the + key) to move the CDROM drive to the top of the list. (The system
attempts to boot from the devices in the order in
which they are listed.)
5. Press [F10], then click on [Yes] to exit the BIOS
Setup Utility and return to the boot process.
After you have changed the boot priority, you can create
a backup image when you are booting up:
1. Install the DAR CD in the drive prior to booting up.
When bootup begins, a message will appear
informing you that continuing to boot from the CD
will overwrite all information on the hard drive,
including saved files, and restore the hard drive to its
factory configuration.
2. When you are asked if you want to restore the
factory image, click [Y]es.
Creating a backup image from the desktop
To create a backup image from the desktop, select Drive
Image SE from the Program list. You will initially be
prompted to create a backup diskette. It is not necessary
to create the backup diskette, since the DAR CD
performs the same function.
1. At the Drive Image Special Edition main screen,
click Options> Create New Backup. DISE displays a
warning that it must go to DOS to create the image.
3. Click Yes.
DISE creates an image file in the backup partition. If
you created a backup image previously, the new
image overwrites the old one.
S Series.book Page 67 Wednesday, February 12, 2003 1:39 PM
Tro ublesho oting
Enlarging the Backup Partition
If there is not enough unused space in the backup partition on your hard disk, DISE will resize the partition.
DISE will display the minimum, maximum, and recommended sizes for the backup partition. You choose the
size you want.
DISE takes the space from the FAT, FAT32, or NTFS
partition that you are backing up. If there is not enough
unused space in that partition to take, you will not be
able to resize the backup partition and create an image
file. You can delete files from the FAT, FAT32, or NTFS
partition to create more unused space on the hard disk.
Restoring a Backup Image
You can restore either a factory image or a backup image
you created. Be aware that restoring a backup image will
replace the contents of the C:\ partition with the image
you restore.
1. Disable virus protection software. If virus protection
software is enabled, DISE will hang.
2. From the DISE main window, click Options >
Restore Backup to restore an image you created, or
click Options > Restore Factory Backup to restore
the factory image.
DISE shuts down to DOS and restores the image file.
Re-Installing Individual Drivers and Applications
The Drivers and Application CD can be used to selectively re-install drivers and/or applications that may have
been un-installed or corrupted.
To re-install drivers and/or applications:
1. Boot up the system and insert the DAR CD after
Windows has started. The LifeBook Easy Installation
screen appears.
2. Select the drivers and applications you want to
install from the list that is displayed.
3. Click [Start]. Follow the prompts that appear to
complete installation of the selected drivers and/or
applications.

BEFORE USING THIS DEVICE
The Integrated Wireless LAN is an optional device available for the LifeBook C Series laptops. This manual
describes the basic operating procedures for the Wireless
LAN (referred to as the “device” in this manual) and
how to set up a wireless LAN network. Before using this
device, read this manual carefully to ensure correct operation of the device. Keep this manual in a safe place for
reference while using the device.
Characteristics of the Device
This device consists of a wireless LAN card that is
attached to the computer via a mini-PCI slot.
The main characteristics are as follows:
■
It uses the power saving communications system in
the 2.4 GHz band, and does not require any license for
radio communication.
■
It uses Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum (DS-SS),
which is resistant to noise.
■
This device complies with Wi-Fi, and is able to communicate at the maximum transfer rate of 11 Mbps.
■
The maximum communication range is approximately 80 feet (25 meters) inside a building. The
range may be shorter depending upon the installation
factors, such as walls and columns.
■
Unauthorized access can be prevented with the use of
SSID and encryption key.
Wireless LAN Modes Using this Device
AdHoc Mode
The “AdHoc Mode” refers to the network connecting
two computers using wireless LAN cards. This connection is called an “AdHoc network.”
Using an AdHoc network, you can obtain a network
connection easily and at a low cost.
In the AdHoc mode, you can use the function supported
by Microsoft Network, such as File and Print Sharing to
exchange files and share a printer or other peripheral
devices.
To use the AdHoc Mode, you must set the same SSID
and the same encryption key for all the computers that
are connected. All connected computers can communicate with each other within the communication range.
Infrastructure Mode
If a number of computers are connected simultaneously
in the AdHoc mode, the transfer rate may be reduced,
communications may become unstable, or the network
connection could fail. This is because all wireless LAN
cards are using the same radio frequency in the network.
96
To improve this situation, you can use a wireless LAN
access point, which is sold separately. The wireless LAN
network is in the “Infrastructure mode” when it uses an
access point, and such a connection is called the “Infrastructure Network.”
By using an access point, you can set and use a different
communication channel for each network group. Each
channel is given a different radio frequency, and it
eliminates the collision of communications and provides
a more stable communications environment. Infrastructure mode is most suitable when you are configuring
multiple wireless LAN networks on the same floor.
To connect a wireless LAN network to a wired LAN, you
need an access point.
How to Handle This Device
The Integrated Wireless LAN device is already installed
in your LifeBook computer. Under normal circumstances, it should not be necessary for you to remove or
re-install it. The LAN has been configured to support the
operating system with which your system shipped.

POINT
When using ADSL (PPPoE) with the infrastructure
network to connect to the Internet, you must change

to the manual that comes with the access point.
* 40 bit and 104 bit encryption is the wireless LAN
equivalent of 64 bit and 128 bit encryption, as set by
Microsoft and wireless LAN manufacturers. This is the
same encryption rate that is used by the Windows XP
operating system, and was selected in order to align it
closer to the wireless LAN standard. For consistency, the
Windows 2000 utilities reflect the same modes.
Outside of wireless LAN environments, encryption is
generally set at either 64 bit or 128 bit. However, the
wireless LAN standard requires that 24 bits be reserved
for fixed data. As a result, the user can only use 40 bits
(64 minus 24) or 104 bits (128 minus 24) for encryption.
This requirement also fixes the number of characters
used for 128 bit encryption to 13 which is calculated as
(13 x 8 bits = 104).

command to check
the connection
Possible Solution
Perform the following steps to run the PING command to check if the
IP packet is correctly delivered to the destination.
To run the PING command, the TCP/IP protocol must be installed.
First you will determine your IP address, then you will make sure your
IP address can respond, and then you will make sure other computers
can be addressed.
1.
Windows 2000: Click [Start] -> [Programs] -> [Accessories] ->
[Command Prompt].
Windows XP: Click [Start] -> [All Programs] -> [Accessories] ->
[Command Prompt].
