your computer and working environment from potential damage.
General
8
•
Do not attempt to service the computer yourself unless you are a trained service
technician. Always follow installation instructions closely.
•
To help prevent electric shock, plug the computer and device power cables into properly
grounded electrical outlets. These cables are equipped with 3-prong plugs to help ensure
proper grounding. Do not use adapter plugs or remove the grounding prong from a cable.
If you must use an extension cable, use a 3-wire cable with properly grounded plugs.
•
To help avoid the potential hazard of electric shock, do not use your computer during an
electrical storm.
•
To help avoid the potential hazard of electric shock, do not connect or disconnect any
cables or perform maintenance or reconfiguration of this product during an electrical
storm.
•
If your computer includes a modem, the cable used with the modem should be
manufactured with a minimum wire size of 26 American wire gauge (AWG) and an FCCcompliant RJ-11 modular plug.
•
Before you clean your computer, disconnect the computer from the electrical outlet.
Clean your computer with a soft cloth dampened with water. Do not use liquid or aerosol
cleaners, which may contain flammable substances.
•
To help avoid possible damage to the system board, wait 5 seconds after turning off the
computer before disconnecting a device from the computer.
Setup and Quick Re ference Guide
0W825bk2.book Page 9 Monday, June 28, 2004 5:58 PM
CAUTION: Safety Instructions (continued)
•
To avoid shorting out your computer when disconnecting a network cable, first unplug
the cable from the network adapter on the back of your computer, and then from the
network jack. When reconnecting a network cable to your computer, first plug the cable
into the network jack, and then into the network adapter.
•
To help protect your computer from sudden, transient increases and decreases in
electrical power, use a surge suppressor, line conditioner, or uninterruptible power supply
(UPS).
•
Ensure that nothing rests on your computer’s cables and that the cables are not located
where they can be stepped on or tripped over.
•
Do not push any objects into the openings of your computer. Doing so can cause fire or
electric shock by shorting out interior components.
•
Keep your computer away from radiators and heat sources. Also, do not block cooling
vents. Avoid placing loose papers underneath your computer; do not place your computer
in a closed-in wall unit or on a bed, sofa, or rug.
•
Do not spill food or liquids on your computer. If the computer gets wet, consult your
User’s Guide.

When Using Your Computer
As you use your computer, observe the following safe-handling guidelines.
CAUTION: Do not operate your computer with any cover(s) (including computer
covers, bezels, filler brackets, front-panel inserts, and so on) removed.
•
Your computer is equipped with one of the following:
–
A fixed-voltage power supply — Computers with a fixed-voltage power supply do not
have a voltage selection switch on the back panel and operate at only one voltage (see
the regulatory label on the outside of the computer for its operating voltage).
–
An auto-sensing voltage circuit — Computers with an auto-sensing voltage circuit do
not have a voltage selection switch on the back panel and automatically detect the
correct operating voltage.
–
A manual voltage selection switch — Computers with a voltage selection switch on
the back panel must be manually set to operate at the correct operating voltage.
NOTICE: To help avoid damaging a computer with a manual voltage selection switch, set the
switch for the voltage that most closely matches the AC power available in your location. For Japan,
the voltage selection switch must be set to the 115-V position even though the AC power available in
Japan is 100 V. Also, ensure that your monitor and attached devices are electrically rated to
operate with the AC power available in your location.
•
10
Before working inside the computer, unplug the computer to help prevent electric shock
or system board damage. Certain system board components continue to receive power
any time the computer is connected to AC power.

When Using Your Computer (continued)
When Working Inside Your Computer
Before you open the computer cover, perform the following steps in the sequence indicated.
CAUTION: Do not attempt to service the computer yourself, except as explained in
your online Dell documentation or in instructions otherwise provided to you by Dell.
Always follow installation and service instructions closely.
NOTICE: To help avoid possible damage to the system board, wait 5 seconds after turning off the
computer before removing a component from the system board or disconnecting a device from the
computer.
1
Perform an orderly computer shutdown using the operating system menu.
2
Turn off your computer and any devices connected to the computer.
3
Ground yourself by touching an unpainted metal surface on the chassis, such as the metal
around the card-slot openings at the back of the computer, before touching anything
inside your computer.
While you work, periodically touch an unpainted metal surface on the computer chassis
to dissipate any static electricity that might harm internal components.
4
Disconnect your computer and devices, including the monitor, from their electrical
outlets. Also, disconnect any telephone or telecommunication lines from the computer.
Doing so reduces the potential for personal injury or shock.
In addition, take note of these safety guidelines when appropriate:
•
When you disconnect a cable, pull on its connector or on its strain-relief loop, not on the
cable itself. Some cables have a connector with locking tabs; if you are disconnecting this
type of cable, press in on the locking tabs before disconnecting 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.
•
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 microprocessor chip by its edges, not by its pins.
CAUTION: There is a danger of a new battery exploding if it is incorrectly installed.
Replace the battery only with the same or equivalent type recommended by the
manufacturer. Do not dispose of the battery along with household waste. Contact
your local waste disposal agency for the address of the nearest battery deposit site.

Getting Started/Setup
CAUTION: Before performing any of the procedures in this section, follow the
safety instructions in the System Information Guide.
NOTICE: If your computer has an expansion card installed (such as a network card), connect
the appropriate cable to the card, not to the connector on the computer back panel.
You must complete all steps to properly set up your computer. See the appropriate figures
that follow the instructions.
1
Connect the keyboard and mouse.
NOTICE: Do not attempt to operate a PS/2 mouse and a USB mouse simultaneously.
NOTE: If you have a Universal Serial Bus (USB)-compliant mouse or keyboard, use the USB
connectors on the back of your system.
2
Connect the modem or network cable.
Insert the network cable, not the phone line, into the network connector. If you have
an optional modem, connect the phone line to the modem.
NOTICE: Do not connect a modem cable to the network adapter. Voltage from telephone
communications can cause damage to the network adapter.
3
Connect the monitor.
Align and gently insert the monitor cable to avoid bending connector pins. Tighten
the thumbscrews on the cable connectors.
NOTE: Some flat-panel displays and graphic cards support Digital Visual Interface (DVI). If
your monitor and card have DVI connectors, Dell recommends that you use DVI instead of VGA.
NOTE: Some monitors have the video connector underneath the back of the screen. See the
documentation that came with your monitor for its connector locations.
A second monitor is optional and requires a multimonitor graphics adapter card. To
enable dual-monitor support, both monitors must be attached when the computer
starts. See "Monitor Connections" on page 16 for more information on attaching two
monitors.
12

voltage).
•
An auto-sensing voltage circuit — Computers with an auto-sensing voltage circuit
do not have a voltage selection switch on the back panel and automatically detect
the correct operating voltage.
•
A manual voltage selection switch — Computers with a voltage selection switch
on the back panel must be manually set to operate at the correct operating
voltage.
NOTICE: To help avoid damaging a computer with a manual voltage selection switch, set the
switch for the voltage that most closely matches the AC power available in your location. For
Japan, the voltage selection switch must be set to the 115-V position even though the AC power
available in Japan is 100 V. Also, ensure that your monitor and attached devices are electrically

SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR
CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO
YOU.
How long does this limited warranty last?
This limited warranty lasts for the time period indicated on your invoice, except that the limited warranty on Dellbranded batteries lasts only one year and the limited warranty on the lamps for Dell-branded projectors lasts only

days of the 90-day limited warranty and the first year of all other limited warranties, we will repair any Dellbranded hardware products returned to us that prove to be defective in materials or workmanship. If we are not
able to repair the product, we will replace it with a comparable product that is new or refurbished.

0W825bk2.book Page 27 Monday, June 28, 2004 5:58 PM
When you contact us, we will issue a Return Material Authorization Number for you to include with your return.
You must return the products to us in their original or equivalent packaging, prepay shipping charges, and insure
the shipment or accept the risk if the product is lost or damaged in shipment. We will return the repaired or
replacement products to you. We will pay to ship the repaired or replaced products to you if you use an address in
the United States (excluding Puerto Rico and U.S. possessions and territories). Otherwise, we will ship the product
to you freight collect.
If we determine that the product is not covered under this warranty, we will notify you and inform you of service
alternatives that are available to you on a fee basis.
NOTE: Before you ship the product(s) to us, make sure to back up the data on the hard drive(s) and any other
storage device(s) in the product(s). Remove any confidential, proprietary, or personal information and removable
media such as floppy disks, CDs, or PC Cards. We are not responsible for any of your confidential, proprietary, or
personal information; lost or corrupted data; or damaged or lost removable media.
During the remaining years: For the remaining period of the limited warranty, we will replace any defective part
with new or refurbished parts, if we agree that it needs to be replaced. When you contact us, we will require a valid
credit card number at the time you request a replacement part, but we will not charge you for the replacement part
as long as you return the original part to us within thirty days after we ship the replacement part to you. If we do
not receive the original part within thirty days, we will charge to your credit card the then-current standard price for
that part.
We will pay to ship the part to you if you use an address in the United States (excluding Puerto Rico and U.S.
possessions and territories). Otherwise, we will ship the part freight collect. We will also include a prepaid shipping
container with each replacement part for your use in returning the replaced part to us.
NOTE: Before you replace parts, make sure to back up the data on the hard drive(s) and any other storage
device(s) in the product(s). We are not responsible for lost or corrupted data.
What if I purchased a service contract?
If your service contract is with Dell, service will be provided to you under the terms of the service agreement.
Please refer to that contract for details on how to obtain service.
If you purchased through us a service contract with one of our third-party service providers, please refer to that
contract for details on how to obtain service.
How will you fix my product?
We use new and refurbished parts made by various manufacturers in performing warranty repairs and in building
replacement parts and systems. Refurbished parts and systems are parts or systems that have been returned to Dell,
some of which were never used by a customer. All parts and systems are inspected and tested for quality.
Replacement parts and systems are covered for the remaining period of the limited warranty for the product you
bought.

What do I do if I am not satisfied?
We pride ourselves on our great customer service. If you are not satisfied with the service you receive under this
limited warranty, please let us know. We have found that the best way to resolve issues regarding our limited
warranty is to work together. If, after those discussions, you are still not satisfied, we believe arbitration is the most
expeditious way to resolve your concerns. Therefore, ANY CLAIM, DISPUTE, OR CONTROVERSY
(WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT, OR OTHERWISE, WHETHER PREEXISTING, PRESENT, OR
FUTURE, AND INCLUDING STATUTORY, COMMON LAW, INTENTIONAL TORT, AND EQUITABLE
CLAIMS) AGAINST DELL arising from or relating to this limited warranty, its interpretation, or the breach,
termination, or validity thereof, the relationships which result from this limited warranty (including, to the full
extent permitted by applicable law, relationships with third parties), Dell's advertising, or any related purchase
SHALL BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY AND FINALLY BY BINDING ARBITRATION ADMINISTERED
BY THE NATIONAL ARBITRATION FORUM (NAF) under its Code of Procedure then in effect (available via
the Internet at www.arb-forum.com/ or via telephone at 1-800-474-2371). The arbitration will be limited solely to
the dispute or controversy between you and Dell. Any award of the arbitrator(s) shall be final and binding on each
of the parties, and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. Information may be
obtained and claims may be filed with the NAF at P.O. Box 50191, Minneapolis, MN 55405. This provision applies
only to individual home consumers and consumers who purchased through an employee purchase program. It does
not apply to small, medium, large, and global commercial customers or government, education, and healthcare
customers.
May I transfer the limited warranty?
Limited warranties on systems may be transferred if the current owner transfers ownership of the system and
records the transfer with us. The limited warranty on Dell-branded memory may not be transferred. You may
record your transfer by going to Dell's website:
•
If you are an Individual Home Consumer, go to www.dell.com/us/en/dhs/topics/sbtopic_015_ccare.htm

"Total Satisfaction" Return Policy (U.S. Only)
We value our relationship with you and want to make sure that you're satisfied with your purchases. That's why we
offer a "Total Satisfaction" return policy for most products that you—the end-user customer—purchase directly
from Dell. Under this policy, you may return to Dell products that you purchased directly from Dell for a credit or
a refund of the purchase price paid, less shipping and handling and applicable restocking fees as follows:
•

New Hardware Products and Accessories — All new hardware, accessories, parts, and unopened software
still in its sealed package, excluding the products listed below, may be returned within thirty days from the
invoice date. To return applications software or an operating system that has been installed by Dell, you
must return the entire computer. A different return policy applies to nondefective products purchased
through Dell's Software and Peripherals division by customers of our Small and Medium Business divisions.
Those products may be returned within thirty days from the invoice date, but a fifteen percent (15%)
restocking fee will be deducted from any refund or credit. The "Total Satisfaction" Return Policy and
Software and Peripherals division return policy are not available for Dell | EMC storage products, EMCbranded products, or enterprise software.

"Total Satisfaction" Return Policy (Canada Only)
If you are an end-user customer who bought new products directly from Dell, you may return them to Dell up to
30 days after you receive them for a refund or credit of the product purchase price. If you are an end-user customer
who bought reconditioned or refurbished products from Dell, you may return them to Dell within 14 days after the
date of invoice for a refund or credit of the product purchase price. In either case, the refund or credit will not
include any shipping and handling charges shown on your invoice and will be subject to a fifteen percent (15%)
restocking fee, unless otherwise prohibited by law. If you are an organization that bought the products under a
written agreement with Dell, the agreement may contain different terms for the return of products than specified
by this policy.
To return products, you must call Dell Customer Service at 1-800-387-5759 to receive a Credit Return
Authorization Number. To expedite the process of your refund or credit, Dell expects you to return the products to
Dell in their original packaging within five days of the date that Dell issues the Credit Return Authorization
Number. You must also prepay shipping charges and insure the shipment or accept the risk of loss or damage
during shipment. You may return software for a refund or credit only if the sealed package containing the floppy
disk(s) or CD(s) is unopened. Returned products must be in as-new condition, and all of the manuals, floppy
disk(s), CD(s), power cables, and other items included with a product must be returned with it. For customers who
want to return, for refund or credit only, either application or operating system software that has been installed by
Dell, the whole system must be returned, along with any media and documentation that may have been included
in the original shipment.
The "Total Satisfaction" Return Policy does not apply to Dell | EMC storage products. It also does not apply to
products purchased through Dell's Software and Peripherals division. For those products, please instead refer to
Dell's Software and Peripheral's then-current return policy (see the following section, "Dell Software and
Peripherals (Canada Only)").
Dell Software and Peripherals (Canada Only)
Third-Party Software and Peripherals Products
Similar to other resellers of software and peripherals, Dell does not warrant third-party products. Third-party
software and peripheral products are covered by the warranties provided by the original manufacturer or publisher
only. Third party manufacturer warranties vary from product to product. Consult your product documentation for
specific warranty information. More information may also be available from the manufacturer or publisher.
While Dell offers a wide selection of software and peripheral products, we do not specifically test or guarantee that
all of the products we offer work with any or all of the various models of Dell computers, nor do we test or
guarantee all of the products we sell on the hundreds of different brands of computers available today. If you have
questions about compatibility, we recommend and encourage you to contact the third-party software and
peripheral product manufacturer or publisher directly.

you may return Dell Software and Peripherals products that are in as-new condition to Dell up to 30 days from the
date of invoice for a refund of the product purchase price if already paid. This refund will not include any shipping
and handling charges shown on your invoice; you are responsible for those.
To return products, you must call Dell Customer Service at 1-800-387-5759 to receive a Credit Return
Authorization Number. You must ship the Dell Software and Peripherals products back to Dell in their original
manufacturer's packaging (which must be in as-new condition), prepay shipping charges, and insure the shipment
or accept the risk of loss or damage during shipment.

THIS LIMITED WARRANTY, AND ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES THAT MAY EXIST UNDER STATE LAW, APPLY ONLY TO THE ORIGINAL PURCHASER OF THE
PENTIUM OR CELERON PROCESSOR, OR PENTIUM OR CELERON PROCESSOR-BASED COMPUTER AND LAST ONLY FOR AS LONG AS SUCH PURCHASER
CONTINUES TO OWN THE PROCESSOR.
Extent of Limited Warranty
Intel does not warrant that your Pentium or Celeron processor will be free from design defects or errors known as "errata." Current characterized errata are available upon request.
This limited warranty is for purchasers in the United States and Canada only. The limited warranty does not cover any costs relating to removal or replacement of any Pentium or
Celeron processors that are soldered or otherwise permanently affixed to your system’s motherboard.
This limited warranty does not cover damages due to external causes, including accident, problems with electrical power, usage not in accordance with product instructions,
misuse, neglect, alteration, repair, improper installation, or improper testing.
How to Obtain Warranty Service
To obtain warranty service for your Pentium or Celeron processor, you may contact your computer system manufacturer in accordance with its instructions, or you may contact Intel.

Intel’s Commitment to Quality
Intel is committed to producing the highest quality processors available. That’s why we have hundreds of people dedicated to continuously improve our design, manufacturing,
and testing technology.
We put every one of our Pentium® and Celeron® processors through a rigorous battery of tests during the design and manufacturing processes.
To verify that the new chip will correctly run the software written for Intel Architecture processors, a team of Intel engineers is dedicated to compatibility testing. In a state-of-art lab,
this group runs an extensive set of operating systems, applications, network tests and stress tests repeatedly to ensure that the processor is compatible with representative software.
Just as importantly, we work with hardware and software companies in the computer industry to ensure that our processors are compatible with their products.
Additionally, a sampling of Intel processors are subjected to a rigorous "burn-in" test whereby the chip is operated at higher-than-normal temperatures and voltages. During this
burn-in period, the processor experiences the equivalent of weeks of normal usage. These units are monitored for failures as part of our ongoing quality assurance process.
As a result, today’s microprocessors from Intel are among the most reliable components in computers.
What are ’Errata’?
Exhaustive product testing can highlight differences between the actual behavior of the microprocessor and its specifications. Sometimes the discrepancies are caused by a design
defect or error, which we call errata. Rigorous validation identifies most errata during the development of the processor, but we do detect additional errata during the life cycle of
a microprocessor.
When an erratum is identified, our engineers work to characterize it and find a solution. We work with system designers and software developers to ensure that the discrepancy does
not affect their products. If necessary, special software or hardware solutions (sometimes known as "work arounds") are implemented in the system design to prevent computer
users from encountering the problem. Errata may then be corrected in future revisions of the microprocessor.
No microprocessor is perfect, and Intel recognizes that some consumers want to know about any errata, whether or not the errata affect them. Intel makes documentation of all
characterized Pentium and Celeron processor errata publicly available through our Technical Documentation Service.
At Intel, our goal is to make every computer user satisfied with his or her Pentium or Celeron processor. Should you have any questions, comments or concerns about your Intel
microprocessor, please call us at 1-800-628-8686.
