Display
Video performance
2X AGP video graphic accelerator with 8MB shared from system memory to boost video performance.
Simultaneous display
The computer’s large display and multimedia capabilities are great for giving presentations. If you prefer, you
can also connect an external monitor when giving presentations. This computer has built-in AGP and VGA
display system to support simultaneous LCD and CRT display. Simultaneous display allows you to control the
presentation from your computer and at the same time face your audience. You can also connect other output
display devices such as LCD projection panels for large-audience presentations.
Dual Display
The computer’s unique graphics chip takes advantage of Windows ME’s multi-display capability, allowing you
to extend your desktop to an external display device, such as an external monitor projector. With this feature
enabled, you can move program windows to/from the computer LCD and the external monitor.
Power management
The power management system incorporates an "automatic LCD dim" feature that automatically dims the LCD
when the computer is powered by a battery pack to conserve battery power. See “Power Management” on
page 26 for more information on power management features.
Opening and closing the display
To open the display, slide the display cover latch to the left and lift up the cover. Then tilt it to a comfortable
viewing position. The computer employs a microswitch that turns off the display (and enters standby mode) to
conserve power when you close the display cover, and turns it back on when you open the display cover.
NOTE: If an external monitor is connected, the computer turns off the display (but does not enter standby
mode) when you close the display cover.
To close the display cover, fold it down gently until the display cover latch clicks into place.
WARNING: To avoid damaging the display, do not slam it when you close it. Also, do not place any object on
top of the computer when the display is closed.

When Caps Lock is on, all alphabetic characters typed are in uppercase.
Num Lock (Fn-F11)
When Num Lock is on, the embedded keypad is in numeric mode. The keys
function as a calculator (complete with the arithmetic operators ), -, *, and /). Use
this mode when you need to do a lot of numeric data entry. A better solution would
be to connect an external keypad.

When Scroll Lock is on, the screen moves one line up or down when you press the
up or down arrow keys respectively. Scroll Lock does not work with some
applications.
Embedded numeric keypad
The embedded numeric keypad functions like a desktop numeric keypad. It is indicated by small characters
located on the upper right corner of the keycaps. To simplify the keyboard legend, cursor-control key symbols
are not printed on the keys.

Touchpad
The built-in touchpad is a PS/2-compatible pointing device that senses movement on its surface. This means
that the cursor responds as you move your finger on the surface of the touchpad. The central location on the
palmrest provides optimum comfort and support.
NOTE: When using an external USB or serial mouse, you can press Fn-F7 to disable the touchpad. If you are
using an external PS/2 mouse, the touchpad is automatically disabled.
Touchpad basics
The following items teach you how to use the touchpad:
1.
Move your finger across the touchpad to move the cursor.
2.
Press the left (1) and right (3) buttons located on the edge of the touchpad to do selection and execution
functions. These two buttons are similar to the left and right buttons on amouse. Tapping on the touchpad
produces similar results.
3.
Use the center (2) buttons (top and bottom) to scroll up or down a page. This button mimics your cursor
pressing on the right scroll bar of Windows applications.

suggested parameter settings.
Parameter
Boot Display
Description
Sets the display device during POST.
Options
Both or Auto
When set to Auto, the computer automatically
determines the display device. If an external display
device (e.g., monitor) is connected, it becomes the
boot display; otherwise, the computer’s display screen
is the boot display. When set t Both, the compute
outputs to both the computer display screen and an
external display device if one is connected.
Screen Expansion
Expand the screen on the graphic/text mode.
Enabled or Disabled
When it is disabled, the graphic/text mode expansion
function is disabled and the graphic/text image will be
centralized on the LCD screen. If it is disabled, the
graphic/text image will be expanded to the full LCD
screen.
Hotkey Beep
When enabled, the computer gives off a beep when a
Enabled or Disabled
hotkey (key combination Fn+o is pressed).
Fast Boot
Allows you to define your system’s booting process;
whether to skip some POST routines or proceed with
the normal booting process.
Enabled or Disabled
When it is enabled, the ACPI OS will communicate
with BIOS to decide the next POST is fast o
diagnostic.
Boot on LAN
When it is enabled, a remote host with an appropriate
boot image can boot this computer via the internal
LAN.
Disabled or Enabled
Multi Boot Selection Menu
When it is enabled, the user can press F12 key to
enter the multi boot selection menu during POST. If it
is disabled, the F12 key function should be disabled.
Enabled or Disabled
CPU Power Management Mode
When it is auto, system can support the stop clock
function. When it is disabled, system will disable the
stop clock function.
Auto or Disabled
Boot Drive Sequence
Specifies the order in which the computer starts up
from. See the section below.
1st: Floppy Disk,
2nd: CD-ROM,
3rd: Hard Disk
4th: Realtek PXE2.0 Boot
Agent
Setting the Boot Drive Sequence
The Boot Drive Sequence section lists boot priorities (1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th) for bootable drives in your
computer.
For example, the default value (1st:Floppy Disk, 2nd:CD-ROM, 3rd:Hard Disk and 4th: Realtek PXE2.0 Boot
Agent) tells the computer to first search for a bootable floppy disk in the floppy drive. If it finds one present, it
boots up from that floppy disk. If not, the computer continues to search for a bootable CD-ROM in the CDROM drive. If it cannot boot up from the CD-ROM drive, it continues by booting up from the hard disk and etc...
To set the boot drive sequence, use the w / y keys to select a priority level (1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th), then use
the z
/ x keys to select the device for that priority level.

Keyboard or Auxiliary Input Device Check
Remove the external keyboard if the internal keyboard is to be tested.
If the internal keyboard does not work or an unexpected character appears, make sure that the flexible cable
extending from the keyboard is correctly seated in the connector on the system board.
If the keyboard cable connection is correct, run the Keyboard Test. See “System Diagnostic Diskette” on page
39 for details.
If the tests detect a keyboard problem, do the following one at a time to correct the problem. Do not replace a
non-defective FRU:
1.
Reconnect the keyboard cables.
2.
Replace the keyboard.
3.
Replace the system board.
The following auxiliary input devices are supported by this computer:
!
Numeric keypad
!
External keyboard
If any of these devices do not work, reconnect the cable connector and repeat the failing operation.
Memory Check
Memory errors might stop system operations, show error messages on the screen, or hang the system.
1.
Boot from the diagnostics diskette and start the PQA program (please refer to “System Diagnostic
Diskette” on page 39.
2.
Go to the diagnostic memory in the test items.
3.
Press m in the test items.
4. Follow the instructions in the message window.
NOTE: Make sure that the DIMM is fully installed into the connector. A loose connection can cause an error.

Check the Battery Pack
To check the battery pack, do the following:
From Software:
1.
Check out the Power Management in control Panel
2.
In Power Meter, confirm that if the parameters shown in the screen for Current Power Source and Total
Battery Power Remaining are correct.
3.
Repeat the steps 1 and 2, for both battery and adapter.
4.
This helps you identify first the problem is on recharging or discharging.
From Hardware:
1.
Power off the computer.
2.
Remove the battery pack and measure the voltage between battery terminals 1(+) and 6(ground). See the
following figure
3.
If the voltage is still less than 7.5 Vdc after recharging, replace the battery.
To check the battery charge operation, use a discharged battery pack or a battery pack that has less than 50%
of the total power remaining when installed in the computer.
If the battery status indicator does not light up, remove the battery pack and let it return to room temperature.
Re-install the battery pack.
If the charge indicator still does not light up, replace the battery pack. If the charge indicator still does not light
up, replace the DC/DC charger board.
Touchpad Check
If the touchpad doesn’t work, do the following actions one at a time to correct the problem. Do not replace a
non-defective FRU:
1.
Reconnect the touchpad cables.
2.
Replace the touchpad.
3.
Replace the system board.
After you use the touchpad, the pointer drifts on the screen for a short time. This self-acting pointer movement
can occur when a slight, steady pressure is applied to the touchpad pointer. This symptom is not a hardware
problem. No service actions are necessary if the pointer movement stops in a short period of time.

Power-On Self-Test (POST) Error Message
The POST error message index lists the error message and their possible causes. The most likely cause is
listed first.
NOTE: Perform the FRU replacement or actions in the sequence shown in FRU/Action column, if the FRU
replacement does not solve the problem, put the original part back in the computer. Do not replace a
non-defective FRU.
This index can also help you determine the next possible FRU to be replaced when servicing a computer.
If the symptom is not listed, see “Undetermined Problems” on page 91.
The following lists the error messages that the BIOS displays on the screen and the error symptoms classified
by function.
NOTE: Most of the error messages occur during POST. Some of them display information about a hardware
device, e.g., the amount of memory installed. Others may indicate a problem with a device, such as the
way it has been configured.
NOTE: If the system fails after you make changes in the BIOS Setup Utility menus, reset the computer, enter
Setup and install Setup defaults or correct the error.

Intermittent Problems
Intermittent system hang problems can be caused by a variety of reasons that have nothing to do with a
hardware defect, such as: cosmic radiation, electrostatic discharge, or software errors. FRU replacement
should be considered only when a recurring problem exists.
When analyzing an intermittent problem, do the following:
1.
Run the advanced diagnostic test for the system board in loop mode at least 10 times.
2.
If no error is detected, do not replace any FRU.
3.
If any error is detected, replace the FRU. Rerun the test to verify that there are no more errors.

NOTE: Verify that all attached devices are supported by the computer.
NOTE: Verify that the power supply being used at the time of the failure is operating correctly. (See “Power
System Check” on page 80):
1.
Power-off the computer.
2.
Visually check them for damage. If any problems are found, replace the FRU.
3.
Remove or disconnect all of the following devices:
!
Non-Acer devices
!
Printer, mouse, and other external devices
!
Battery pack
!
Hard disk drive
!
DIMM
!
CD-ROM/Diskette drive Module
