These lasers must remain in their sealed casing. DO NOT
remove the drive covers, as exposure to the lasers may be
harmful.
* Do not insert objects through the slots and openings of the
notebook. This may lead to electric shock, electrical shortcircuit or fire that will damage your notebook.
* Slots and openings in the notebook serve to ventilate it. Do
not cover up these openings, because the notebook could
overheat otherwise.
* The notebook is not intended to be operated in a heavy inAid
dustry company. Operation under extreme environmental
conditions can result in damage to your notebook.
* Do not operate the notebook during a thunderstorm, in
order to avoid damage through lightning strike.
* Do not cover the slots and openings of the notebook. Never
Appendix
place objects on top of the notebook that would exert any

* There is a risk of injury if the TFT display breaks. Use pro-
tective gloves to pack up the broken pieces and contact customer service to arrange for proper disposal. It is important
to thoroughly wash your hands after handling a broken TFT
display. There is a chance that chemicals may have been released.
* To avoid damage to the TFT Display, never open it a full
120º. Do not forcibly open it.
* In order to avoid damage to the display, do not touch it with
your fingers or sharp objects.

open there is a danger of severe electric shock. It contains
no user-serviceable parts.
The electric outlet must be in the vicinity of the notebook and
within reach of the power adapter cables.
To disconnect your notebook from the power source, or set
the notebook to battery operation, remove the power cord
from the notebook’s power socket.
Only use the notebook with a power adaptor operating at
AC 115V~/60 Hz. In European countries use the notebook
at AC 220-240V~/50 Hz.
For details on power consumption, please refer to the rating
plate on the rear of your notebook. If you are unsure of the
type of power supply available at the point of use, ask your
local power company.
Use only the supplied power cord and power adapter.
If using an extension cord, make certain that it meets your
local safety requirements. If in doubt, consult an electrician.
To provide additional protection against electric shock, power
surges, lightning strikes, or other electrical damage to your
notebook, we recommend the use of a surge protector.
Firstly remove the plug, and then the connector of the
notebook, from the power source, if you want to detach
the network adapter from the mains power supply. A reverse
sequence could damage the network adapter or the notebook.
Always hold the connector firmly when removing it. Never
pull on the power cord.
CABLING
* Arrange cables so no one can walk on or trip over them.
* Do not place objects on any of the cables.

POWER ADAPTER
Your Notebook is supplied with a universal AC power adapter,
which automatically adjusts to the available power source. The
following levels are supported: AC 100-240V~/ 50-60 Hz.
Please follow the power supply safety instructions found on
page 6.
The power adapter is connected via a power cord to an AC outlet.
The DC power lead from the power adapter is connected to the rear
side of the Notebook (36).
The adapter provides the notebook with power and also charges
the battery. The power supply indicators of the notebook
provide details on the operating state. The battery is also being
charged when you are working on your notebook with the power
adapter. The power adapter is still live if the notebook is not connected with it. You should therefore unplug the power adapter
from the outlet if it is not connected to the notebook.

STANDBY MODE
Aid
Appendix
The hibernate mode is an alternative to a complete shutdown of
the notebook. In this mode all data from RAM (system and
graphic data) are copied to the hard disk as a file. As soon as the
data has been safely saved, the notebook powers down. When the
notebook is switched on again, this file is written back to RAM by
the BIOS. In a few moments the notebook is in the exact state as
when it was last used. If while working on a document the notebook is closed (assuming the correct ACPI setting), the notebook
saves the data in RAM for you automatically. You will restart at
precisely the line in which you were working prior to the interruption. The computer uses no power while it is in suspend (hibernate) mode, but it takes a little longer for the computer to go into

REGIONAL PLAYBACK INFORMATION FOR DVD
The playback of DVD movies includes the decoding of MPEG2 videos, digital AC3 audio data and the deciphering of CSS protected
contents.
CSS (sometimes called copy guard) is the name of a data protection program incorporated by the movie industry as an action
against illegal copies.
Among the numerous regulations for CSS licensees the most important ones are the country specific playback restrictions.
In order to facilitate the geographically restricted release of movies, DVD titles are released for certain regions.
Copyright laws require the restriction of each DVD movie to a certain region (usually the region, in which it is sold).
DVD movie versions can be published in several regions but the
CSS regulations require that each CSS decipherable system may
only be used in one region.
Â
54
The decoding software included with your PC may
be changed for regional DVD decoding up to five
times, after which the drive will only play DVD
movies for the region setting last entered. 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 billed

standard for V.90 transmissions with up 56 Kbit/s.
Aid
The term “modem” is an abbreviation of Modulator/ DEModulator. A
modem changes the bit stream of the PC into analogue signals which
then can also be transmitted via the telephone line (modulation).
The modem on the other side reverses the conversion (demodulation). Simplified, a modem converts outgoing data into tone and
tone incoming via the telephone line back into data.

66
MAIN COMPONENTS
An access point is a wireless transmitter that communicates with
your notebook and controls access to the network connection
(e.g., a home network or a broadband connection such as DSL).
Safety
CONDITIONS
Wireless access points are often found in offices, airports, universities or Internet cafés. They offer access to networks or to the
Internet. Access authorizations are normally needed. A fee may
be required to use a public access point.
A link to another computer with wireless LAN functionality can
also be created without an access point. This will allow you to
share files, but you will need an access point and a router to
share an Internet connection.
The wireless network link works according to standard IEEE
802.11g which is also compatible with the IEEE 802.11b standard. The standard 802.11a is not supported.
If encrypted transmission us used, this must operate according to
the same principle on all devices. Encryption is a method of
protecting the network from unauthorized access.
Components
Handling
To set up a wireless network to share Internet access, files, and
printers at home, you will need an access point, a router, and a
broadband (DSL or cable) modem. Some access points can also
serve as a router and/or a broadband modem. Check with your
retailer or Internet Service Provider to find the best solution for
your needs.

SYSTEM RECOVERY
Windowsxp provides a useful function enabling the storage of the
so-called Recovery points.
The system remembers the current configuration as a snapshot
and returns to this, if necessary. The advantage is that an unsuccessful installation can be cancelled.
Recovery points are created automatically by the system, but
they can also be set manually.
You can determine and configure yourself the maximum memory
taken up by this. You find this program in the program file under
accessories, system programs.
We recommend setting a recovery point before installing a new
software or driver. If the system does not run stable any longer
this enables you usually to return to a workable configuration
without deleting newly created documents. In the next paragraph
read your options for a repair of an incorrect installation.
CORRECTION
Windowsxp includes various functions ensuring that the PC as well
as the installed applications and devices work correctly.
These functions assist you in solving the problems which might
occur by adding, deleting or replacing files required for the functionality of the operating system, the applications and devices.
The recovery function or functions you use depend on the type of
occurring problem or error. For detailed information refer to the

Active matrix LCDs (TFT) with a resolution of 1024 x 768 pixel (XGA),
which are in turn composed of three sub-pixels each (red, green,
blue), contain about 2.4 million addressable transistors. Because of
this very high number of transistors and their extremely complex
production process occasionally defective or incorrectly addressed
pixels or sub-pixels may occur.
There have been several attempts in the past to define the acceptable number of defective pixels. But this can be difficult and varies
widely between different manufacturers.
We, therefore, adhere to the clear and strict requirements of ISO
13406-2, class II, for the warranty handling of all TFT display products. These requirements are summarized below.
Within ISO-standard 13406-2 the general requirements regarding
pixel defects are defined. Pixel defects are classified into three failure
types and four failure classes. Each individual pixel is made up of
three sub-pixels in the primary colours (red, green, blue).

A white pixel is caused when all three sub-pixel are lit.
Type 2:
A pixel that does not light up (dark, black spot), although it is
addressed
Type 3:
Abnormal or defective red, green or blue sub-pixels.
(E.g. constantly lit with half the brightness, one colour is not
shining, blinking or flickering, but not belonging to Type 1 or
2 Pixel Failures)
In addition: A cluster of type 3 (= 2 or more defective sub-pixels in an
array of 5 x 5 pixel). A cluster is an array of 5 x 5 pixel (15 x

on one million pixels this translates into a factor of about 1.31.
Class II type failure consequently allows for three defects each of type 1
