the AC adapter or the auto/airline
adapter is connected and has power.
CAUTION
Do not carry your notebook around
with the power on or subject it to shocks
or vibration, as you risk damaging
your notebook.
CAUTION
The main Lithium ion battery is not
charged when you purchase your notebook. Initially you will need to connect
the AC adapter to use it. If you purchase
an optional second Lithium ion battery, it
will not be charged when you get it, you
will need to charge it prior to use.
When the power switch is turned on, your
notebook carries out a Power On Self Test
(POST) to check the internal parts and configuration. If a fault is found a beep will sound
and/or an error message will be displayed.
(See Troubleshooting on pages 138-140) Depending on the nature of the problem you may be
able to continue by starting the operating
system or by entering the setup utility and
revising the settings.
After satisfactory completion of the Power On
Self Test (POST) your notebook will load your
operating system. (See Boot Menu on pages 105106 to see which kind of disk will be the source.)

BATTERIES
The Lithium ion batteries are rechargeable with
an operating time of up to three (3) hours
depending on active power management features and user activity levels. Your notebook can
be operated on the primary Lithium ion battery
alone or in a dual battery configuration with an
optional second Lithium ion battery. A built-in
bridge battery allows a charged Lithium ion
battery to be exchanged for a discharged one
by “warm-swapping”. To warm-swap, have a
charged battery ready, put your notebook in
Suspend mode, remove the low battery and
quickly insert a charged battery.
The Lithium ion battery operating time may
become shorter than the reference value if it is
used under the following conditions:
■
■
When used at temperatures that exceed a low
of 5°C or a high of 35°C. High 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.)
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.
When using a high cur rent device such as a
modem, a LAN card,the CD-ROM drive, or
the hard drive frequently.
Using the AC adapter will conserve your battery
when using a high current device such as a
modem, a LAN card,the CD-ROM drive, or the
hard drive frequently.

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

regarding recycling or disposing of
old batteries. If you cannot find this
information elsewhere, contact your
support representative at 1-800-8FUJITSU
(1-800-838-5487).
Bridge Battery
The bridge battery is a NiCd battery that is
built-in your notebook and is constantly being
recharged.A bridge battery allows a charged
Lithium ion battery to be exchanged for a discharged one by “warm-swapping”.
To warm-swap have a charged battery ready,
put your notebook in Suspend mode, remove
the low battery and quickly insert a charged
battery. The bridge battery capacity is not large,
about 3 minutes,and can vary with the condition of your notebook.
CAUTION
Data may be lost and/or system
errors introduced if the warm swap is
not performed quickly or a power
adapter installed.
CAUTION
The bridge battery can not support an
operating notebook. The notebook must
be in Suspend mode.
Shorted Batteries
If your Status Indicator panel shows a shorted
battery, check the installation for that battery by
removing and re-installing it. If it still shows
that it is shorted, replace it with a new battery.
27
S e c t i o n

■
CAUTION
A shorted battery is damaged and must
be replaced so that it does not damage
anything else.
Recharging the Batteries
If you want to check the condition of either the
primary Lithium ion battery or an optional second Lithium ion battery, check the Battery Level
indicators located on the Status Indicator panel.
These indicators change as the battery levels
change. Battery 1 is a Lithium ion battery which
is installed in Multi-function Bay 1 and Battery
2 is a Lithium ion battery which is installed in
Multi-function Bay 2. (Figure 2-3 on page 20.)
You can also check the PowerPanel toolbar.
The Lithium ion batteries are recharged internally using the AC adapter or auto/airline
adapter. To recharge the batteries:
28
■
■
Make sure the battery to be charged is
installed in either Multi-function bay of
your notebook and connect the AC or
auto/airline adapter.
Make sure that the Battery Charging indicator to the left of the Battery Level indicator
of the battery to be charged is visible on the
Status Indicator panel.
Make sure the percentage charge is shown
inside the Battery Level icon. (Figure 2-4
on page 21.)
When two Lithium ion batteries are installed,
the charge/discharge rate of the primary and
optional second Lithium ion batteries are the
same,as they are connected in parallel and are
both charging and/or discharging at the same
time. Since the rates are the same, one may
finish charging or discharging before the other
if they were not at the same charge le vel when
they were installed and/or the AC or auto/
airline adapter was connected.
There is no memory effect on the Lithium ion
batteries, which means that you do not need to
discharge them completely before recharging.
A single fully discharged Lithium ion battery
will charge in approximately three (3) hours
when your notebook is Off or in Suspend mode.
The charging time from fully discharged for two
Lithium ion batteries together, is approximately 5
hours when your notebook is Off or in Suspend
mode.Of course partially charged batteries will
not take as long to charge. The charge times will
be significantly longer if your notebook is in use
while the batteries are charging (from approximately nine (9) hours for one battery to approximately 15 hours for two batteries with normal
operating levels).
CAUTION
Using heavy current devices such as LAN
cards or frequent CD-ROM accesses may
prevent charging completely.

Low Battery State
When the battery is running low, your notebook beeps about every 15 seconds and the
Battery Level indicator(s) flash. If you do not
respond to the low battery alarm,the batteries
will continue to discharge until they are too low
to operate. When this happens there will be a
multiple beep alarm,the Battery Level indicator
will show dead battery, and your notebook will
go into Suspend mode to try and protect your
data as long as possible. Your power management settings do not affect what happens at the
dead battery alarm level. Your notebook will go
to Suspend mode. (Figure 2-3 on page 20.)
CAUTION
You may not be able to hear the audio
alarms if the volume control is set too
low or is turned off by either hardware or
software but you will still be able to see
the Battery Level indicator(s) flash.
Your
LifeBook
700
Series
When the low battery alarm occurs you need to
save all your active data and put your notebook
into Suspend mode until you can provide a new
power source. You should provide this power as
soon as possible. The new power source can be
a charged battery or a power adapter, either AC
or auto/airline.
CAUTION
When you are in Suspend mode there
must always be at least one power source
active. If you turn off the power with
the power switch, or remove all power
sources, battery, AC adapter or auto/
airline adapter, while your notebook is in
Suspend mode any data which has not
been saved to the hard drive will be lost.
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 AC adapter, an optional auto/
airline adapter, or a charged battery. Dead
Battery Suspend mode shows on the Status
indicator just like the normal Suspend mode.
Once you have provided power, you will need
to press the Suspend/Resume button to resume
operation. In the Suspend mode, your data can
be maintained for sometime. If a power source
is not provided promptly, the Power indicator
will stop flashing and go out,and you will 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, but the battery trickle charges under
these conditions. If you want to charge the
battery more quickly, put your notebook into
Suspend mode, or turn off your notebook while
the adapter is charging the battery. (See Power
Offon pages 24-25 for shutdown procedures.)

information on backing-up your data
files. The factory installed software,
including the operating system, can be
restored from the Recovery CD-ROM
which came in the accessories box when
you purchased your notebook. (See
Restoring Your Pre-installed Software
from CD-ROM on page 161 for more
information.) Any application software
which you have purchased and installed
will have to be re-installed from the
original source. When doing a recovery
remember that you must allocate space
for the Save-to-Disk function if you have
it enabled. (See Setting Up Your Save-toDisk File Allocation on pages 112-113
for more information.)
POWER MANAGEMENT
Your LifeBook 700 Series has many features for
conserving power. Some power savings features
are automatic and have no user control, such
as those for the internal modem, while others
depend on the parameters you set to best suit
your operating conditions. Other power saving
features turn the display brightness down, limit
the use of high power devices, activate an
appropriate power savings profile, and put your
notebook in Suspend mode when not actually
performing an operation. As with all mobile,
battery-powered computers,there is a trade-off
between performance and power savings.
Internal power management for your notebook
is controlled from settings made in the BIOS
setup utility, the PowerPanel by Phoenix
Technologies,and the Windows 95 Control
LifeBo ok 700 Series from Fuji tsu
Using
panel. If no settings have been made in the
PowerPanel or Windows 95 Control panel then
the BIOS settings will be used. The PowerPanel
and Windows 95 Control panel have been
pre-set at the factory and will be active unless
you disable them. Complete descriptions of the
BIOS setup utility parameters are found in
Section Three of this guide. Power management
parameters are covered under the Power
Savings menu. (See pages 95-100.)
Some particular power parameters are only
available for setup from one of these places,
others can be changed in any one of them.
ACPI
Short for Advanced Configuration & Power
Interface,a power management specification
developed by Intel, Microsoft,and Toshiba.
ACPI, which will be part of the Windows 98
operating system, enables the operating system
to control the amount of power given to each
device attached to the computer. With ACPI,
the operating system can turn off peripheral
devices, such as CD-ROM players, when they
Your
LifeBook
700
Series
Push the Suspend/Resume button, when your
notebook is active but no Access indicators are
on,and hold it in until it is acknowledged by
activation of the selected mode. Which mode is
activated is determined by the settings of the
BIOS setup utility Power Savings menu. The
default is Suspend mode. (See page 95 for how
to select Save-to-Disk mode.)
Figure 2-14 Suspend/Resume Button
are not in use. The LifeBook 700 Series notebook computers have built in BIOS support for
the ACPI 1.0 standard,and will be able to take
advantage of this functionality in Windows 98.
ACPI support is enabled in the BIOS set-up
utility as described in Section Three of this
guide. (See pages 87-88).
Using the Suspend/Resume Button
When your notebook is active,the Suspend/
Resume button, (Figure 1-6 on page 6), can be
used to manually put your notebook into
Suspend mode, or into Save-to-Disk mode.
If your notebook is suspended,pushing the
Suspend/Resume button will return your notebook to active operation at the point where it
went into suspension. The Suspend/Resume
button is located next to the Status Indicator
panel above the keyboard of your notebook.
(Figure 2-14.) You can tell whether or not your
system is in Suspend mode by looking at the
Power indicator. (See pages 19-20.) If it is visible
and not flashing, your notebook is fully operational. If it is visible and flashing, your notebook is in Suspend mode. If it is not visible,
the power is Off,the power is in the Windows
95 pseudo-off state, or your notebook is in
39
S e c t i o n
T w o
Save-to-Disk mode. (See pages 44-45.) When
you receive your LifeBook 700 Series it will be
set to the default, which is Suspend mode.
CAUTION
Be sure you know which settings are
active for the Suspend/Resume button
before you use it; misuse can result in
data loss. (See the Power Savings Menu
of the BIOS setup utility, pages 95-100,
for more information.)
POINT
Disabling the Suspend/Resume button
prevents it from being used to put your
notebook in Suspend or Save-to-Disk
mode. The resume function of the button
cannot be disabled. (See the Power
Savings Menu of the BIOS setup utility,
pages 95-100, for more information.)
40
CAUTION
The Suspend or Save-to-Disk mode
should not be used with certain PC Cards.
Check your PC Card documentation for
more information.
POINT
If your notebook is active when you
enter the Suspend or 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 Save-to-Disk mode.
CAUTION
If you are running your 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. With a
fully charged internal Lithium ion battery
the suspend mode will maintain your
status for 24 hours or more.
PowerPanel
PowerPanel by Phoenix Technologies provides
Windows 95 desktop access to a comprehensive
combination of power management settings
without entering the BIOS setup utility.
The PowerPanel icon looks like an atom with
its cloud of electrons. This icon will open the
PowerPanel menu. You can view the menu in
icon format along the edge of your desktop by
moving the cursor against the edge whe re you
have chosen to keep your PowerPanel toolbar
and letting it sit there until the toolbar appears.

same pseudo-off state as the Windows 95 power
off. When you resume operation by pressing the
Suspend/Resume button, you return to the point
in the operation where you left off, before going
into Save-to-Disk mode.
POINT
If power is lost during Save-to-Disk mode
the data will be retrieved automatically as
soon as power is returned.
POINT
When PC Cards or external devices are
in use, 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.
Your
LifeBook
700
Series
POINT
The main advantage of using the
Save-to-Disk function is that power is
not required to maintain your data. This
is particularly important if you will be
leaving your notebook in a suspended
state for a prolonged period of time. The
drawback of using Save-to-Disk mode
is that it lengthens the power down and
power up sequences and resets
peripheral devices.
POINT
Save-to-Disk mode requires allocating a
significant amount of hard drive capacity
for saving all system memory, which
reduces your usable disk space. When
you purchase your notebook it will have
space allocated for the memory installed.
If you upgrade the original system by
adding a memory upgrade module
without changing the size of your Saveto-Disk allocation you will get an error
message when you try to activate Saveto-Disk mode and it will not work. Use
the PHDISK Utility to increase the size
of the Save-to-Disk file, SAVE2DSK.BIN.

Secondary Hard Drive Swap Limitations
If you ever boot with the second HDD installed
in Multi-function Bay 2 and try to swap it,an
error message “Removing INT 13 Devices is not
supported...” appears. This error occurs because
Windows configured the hard drive as an INT
13 drive and remembers the setting in the
Registry. The following steps are required to
enable the Tioman Proswap software to swap
out the second HDD.
• Swap in the second HDD
• Go into Control Panel/System/Device
Manager
• Look under Disk Drives
• Select the second HDD and open properties
• Select the settings tab, in the options box
• Uncheck the INT 13 box
• Select OK, BUT DO NOT RESTART
• Shutdown system and turn the power
switch to off.
• Without the second HDD in system, turn
the power switch to on .
You must perform these steps every time
the INT 13 box becomes checked on
boot detection.

POINT
When a battery is in Multi-function Bay
1 and a Floppy Disk Drive is in Multifunction Bay 2, the taskbar icon for
Multi-function Bay 1 will show ‘Diskette
drive in bay’ and the Multi-function Bay
2 icon will show ‘No Device in bay’.
POINT
When the external Floppy Disk Drive is
attached to the notebook, a battery is in
Multi-function Bay 1 and any device is in
Multi-function Bay 2, the taskbar icon for
Multi-function Bay 1 will show ‘Diskette
drive in bay’ and Multi-function Bay 2’s
icon will show the correct device. If you
remove the external Floppy Disk Drive
and suspend/resume the system, the
taskbar icons for Multi-function Bay 1
and Multi-function Bay 2 will now show
the correct devices.

SECTION THREE
CONFIGURING YOUR LIFEBOOK
700 SERIES FROM FUJITSU
This section explains the BIOS setup utility.
The BIOS setup utility is required to set the
date, time, power management modes,data
security passwords and other operating
parameters of your notebook.
BOOT SEQUENCE
Each time you power up or restart your
LifeBook 700 Series,it goes through a quiet
boot sequence that displays a Fujitsu logo until
your operating system is loaded. During quiet
boot, your notebook is performing a standard
boot sequence including a Power On Self Test
(POST). To access the ability to change the
drive that will be used for finding the operating
system, press the Esc key anytime while the
Fujitsu logo is displayed. To enter the BIOS
setup utility press the F2 key anytime while
the Fujitsu logo is displayed. When the boot
sequence is completed without a failure and
without a request for the setup utility, the
54
system displays the Windows 95 opening
screen. The boot sequence is executed when:
■
■
■
■
You turn on power to the system using the
power switch on the right side panel of your
notebook. (Figure 2-5 on page 23.)
You restart your computer from the
Windows 95 Shutdown dialog box of the
Start Menu.
The software initiates a system restart.
Example: When you install a new
application.
You reset the system by pressing the three
keys Ctrl+Alt+Del at the same time and then
restart your computer from the Windows 95
Shutdown dialog box.
POINT
The BIOS setup utility is entered by
pressing the F2 key during the boot
process while the Fujitsu logo is on
the screen.
POINT
When error messages occur see
Section Five, pages 138-140, for help
in understanding the meaning and
required actions to be taken.
IDENTIFYING THE DRIVES
Your notebook uses drive letters (Example A:,
B:,C:,D:,E:) to identify internal and external
devices such as hard drives, floppy disk drives,
CD-ROM drives and PC Cards. The most commonly assigned drive designators are listed
below. If you add other devices,the drive designators may be different. See your operating
system manual for setting drive designations.
Drive Designators
A:Floppy disk drive.
Installable in either of the multi-function
bays of your notebook, or use the external
floppy disk drive.
B: Not used with your notebook.

SETTING UP YOUR
SAVE-TO-DISK FILE ALLOCATION
Your notebook comes with an allocation of space
on the internal hard drive adequate to operate the
Save-to-Disk function for the amount of memory
installed at the factory. If you add a memory
upgrade module or do not use the Save-to-Disk
function and wish to free up the disk space, you
will need to change your allocation. The utility to
change the allocations is PHDISK.EXE and is
activated from the MS-DOS prompt.
PHDISK allows you to perform five different
functions related to the Save-to-Disk space on
your internal hard drive. They are:
1. Allocate a space for the Save-to-Disk function.
2. Remove all space allocation for the Save-toDisk function.
3. Find out details about the hard drive and the
current Save-to-Disk space allocation.
112
4. Re-allocate space and mark bad blocks in the
space allocated to the Save-to-Disk function
when a disk error has occurred.
5.Find out how much space is needed to
perform the Save-to-Disk function with
the current memory configuration and how
much unused space is available on the
internal hard drive.
The screen will display the amount disk spa ce
needed to perform the Save-to-Disk function
with the current memory configuration and
how much unused space is available on the
internal hard drive.
To find out details about the hard drive and
the current Save-to-Disk space allocation, do
the following:

CD-ROMdrive.
2.Start your notebook.
3. Set the operating system source to be the
CD-ROM drive.
4. Follow the instructions on your screen.
5. When recovery is complete, remove the

162
POINT
As long is there is no boot disk in the
CD-ROM drive or the floppy disk drive
your notebook will boot from the hard
drive, regardless of the operating system
source setting.
Your notebook now has all of the software
installed that was installed when you r eceived it
from the factory. You must now set up the file
for your Save-to-Disk function (see Setting Up
Your Save-To-Disk File Allocation starting on
page 112), load any programs which you purchased and installed after you got your notebook,and restore your data files. If you did not
choose the format and recover option your data
files will still exist. You are now ready to operate.
CAUTION
Remember that you must set the Boot
menu in the BIOS setup utility to CDROM Drive, or use the Esc key during
the boot-up sequence to change the
setting so the BIOS loads the operating
system from the CD-ROM, not the hard
drive. (See page 105 for ways to set the
operating system source.)
CAUTION
User data and user installed applications
CAN NOT be recovered from the
Recovery CD-ROM.
