Notes on using Bluetooth connectivity
Data transfer speed may vary due to the following factors:
1. Obstacles between the computer and the device (i.e. walls).
2. Distances between the computer and the device.
3. Material of the walls.
4. Proximity to devices such as microwaves or wireless telephone set.
5. Radio wave frequency interference and other environmental factors.
6. Equipment configuration.
7. Type of software/application.
8. Type of operating system.
9. Having both wireless network connectivity and Bluetooth function running at the same time.
10. Size of the file being exchanged.
3.1 System
configuration
BIOS POST Window
During normal startup of BIOS,
you will see the logo as shown
in the image (see left).
1. Due to limitations of the Bluetooth standard, the presence of ambient electromagnetic
interference may damage large files during transfer.
2. All Bluetooth devices must be authenticated to ensure that they would meet the standard
requirements for the protocol. In spite of this fact, variables such as performance, specifications
and operating application of individual devices must also be taken into account and one should not
assume that Bluetooth devices could achieve data exchange under all circumstances.
3. A significant number of electronic products feature Bluetooth or wireless LAN modules that
utilize the 2.4GHz frequency. Since Bluetooth modules adopt this technology to minimize potential
interference from other devices using the same frequency, Bluetooth modules have relatively lower
data transfer speed and distance. As interference from other devices may disrupt Bluetooth communication, please do not use the computer’s Bluetooth function in conjunction with other wireless
communication equipment that operates on 2.4GHz band (i.e. wireless LAN PC card).
2.4 External device applications
You can connect an external display to the computer via its external display port. To do so:
During the BIOS POST process,
you can press the ESC key to
access the POP menu and select
the device you wish to boot.
Available options in the menu will
depend on the devices installed on
your computer. The screenshot on
the left is just an example.
1. Turn off the computer.
2. Connect the cable of the display/multimedia display/projector to the computer’s external display port.
3. Turn on the display/multimedia display/projector.
4. Turn on the computer.
When the computer has been turned on, it will automatically identify the external display device you have
connected.
To toggle between displays, use the Fn+F8 hotkey combination. If you need to disconnect the external computer
before shutting down the computer, be sure to use the Fn+F8 key combination to switch to the computer’s LCD
screen.
