Press <NumLock> to enable or disable the numeric keypad. Touchpad The touchpad is a pressure sensitive pointing device that provides all the features of a two-button mouse. Its primary function is to move the cursor around the screen. Touchpad buttons Touchpad buttons Scrolling area The instructions listed below describe how to use the touchpad. 1. First, place your fingers on the keyboard in the normal typing position. The touchpad is easily accessible by moving either your left or right thumb off the space bar and on to the touchpad. Getting Started — Touchpad 2. Gently move your thumb across the pressure-sensitive touchpad in the direction you want the cursor to move. The pad detects the change in pressure and moves the cursor in the corresponding direction. 3. The touchpad offers another method of making selections in a software program. It is called double-tapping. This function corresponds to doubleclicking with a mouse. Once the cursor has been moved to the object you want to select, lightly double-tap the pressure sensitive touchpad. This doubletapping on the touchpad will select the desired item and prompt the software to perform the related operation. 4. The buttons located directly below the touchpad are the same in function as those on a two-buttoned mouse. Clicking these buttons makes selections, drags objects, or performs a variety of other functions depending on the software. To select an object, first move the pointer over the object you want to select, and then press the left button one time. The functions of these buttons are software specific. 5. Double-clicking is a common technique for selecting objects or launching programs from icons. Once you have moved the pointer over the object you wish to select, rapidly press the left button two times. This action is commonly referred to as “double-clicking” an object. Dragging There are two ways to drag: • Move the pointer to the desired location then press down the left button. While still holding down the left button, move the pointer to the desired location. Release the button. • Move the pointer to the desired location. Tap the touchpad twice quickly as if you were double-clicking, however do not remove your finger after the second tap. Move the cursor to the desired location. Lift your finger to finish dragging. Adjust the touchpad settings by selecting Settings/Control Panel/Mouse/Buttons. These settings allow you to change the orientation of the touchpad from right-handed to lefthanded, and fine tune the pointer movement and timing of clicks. Touchpad Precautions The Touchpad is a pressure-sensitive device. If not properly cared for, it can be easily damaged. Please take note of the following precautions. • Make sure the touchpad does not come into contact with dirt, liquids or grease. • Do not touch the touchpad if your fingers are dirty. • Do not rest heavy objects on the touchpad or the touchpad buttons. Scrolling Area If you are scrolling through a document, you may find that using the scrolling area is more convenient than holding down the mouse button. The scrolling area is located both on the right and lower touchpad panel. Gently move your finger across the arrow signal by the direction to scroll up or down, left or right in a document or web page. Getting Started — Connecting a USB Floppy Disk Drive Connecting a USB Floppy Disk Drive Your notebook computer supports a USB 1.44 MB floppy disk drive (must be purchased separately). The FDD is “hot pluggable,” so you do not have to power down the notebook to connect it. Floppy disk drive USB connector Disk Drives Your computer comes with several components for reading and writing (recording) information.

Note: For optimum performance, we recommend calibrating the battery every three months. Each time you charge and discharge a battery, it loses a tiny part of its storage capacity, so that, over time, it will store less than its potential charge. Similarly, if you do not use the battery for a few days, it will slowly self-discharge, and when it is recharged, it may hold less than 100% of the potential charge. Power Management —Error! Style not defined. Monitoring Battery Power There are two ways to monitor how much power the battery has left. 1. Click start/Settings/Control Panel/Power Options; then click Power Meter. 2. Moving the cursor to the battery icon on the taskbar is the simplest way to check on battery power status. If you do not see the battery icon, enable it in Start/Settings/Control Panel/Power Options. Choose the Advanced tab and click “Always show icon on the taskbar.” Low Battery Alarms How your computer responds to a low battery condition is set under Start/Settings/Control Panel/Power Options/Alarms. Two different power alarms can be enabled or disabled: the Low Battery Alarm, and the Critical Battery Alarm. Use the slidebar to set the power level at which the alarms are activated. Click on the Alarm Action button to choose whether the alarm sounds, displays a message, or both. Warning: When battery power is low, the battery indicator will flash red, and the alarm will beep or display a warning on your screen. Take immediate action, such as saving files or connecting to the AC adapter, or data may be lost. When the computer alerts you that the battery is low, immediately do one of the following: • Connect the AC power adapter • Save your work, and hibernate by pressing <Fn> + <F4> • Save your work, then select Shut Down from the Start menu • Turn off or suspend the computer and replace the discharged battery with a charged battery (See Changing the Battery below). Do not restart the computer until you have connected to an AC adapter, or replaced the discharged battery with a charged battery. Power Management —Error! Style not defined. Battery Charging When you use the AC adapter to connect your Notebook to a power outlet, the internal battery will automatically begin to recharge. While the battery is charging, the Battery Charge icon on the indicator panel will be active. When the battery is fully charged, the Battery Charge icon will turn off. If your computer is turned off, a fully discharged battery will take about 2.5 hours to recharge. If your computer is turned on and is not in suspend mode, it twill take about 3 hours to recharge the battery. Refer to the following table: Charging Discharging System On 3 hours 3.5 hours System Off (suspend to RAM) 2.5 hours — Note: A fully charged Li-Ion battery can run the Notebook for up to 3.5 hours. USB Power Always On This Notebook PC provide a special feature for user. As long as the battery of this notebook PC is fully charged. The USB ports on this Notebook PC are always on even in power off state. User can use this feature to charge some kind of mobile devices, such as PDA, MP3 player or mobile phone when needed . User needs a specific cable for connecting USB port of notebook PC and the device. Please check the device provider for that cable. Power Saving Modes Adjust the default power management settings in the Power Options/ Advanced dialog box in the Control panel. The Power Options Properties dialog box allows you to set different actions to take when the computer is left idle for a certain amount of time. Suspend Mode There are several possible settings for suspend mode, which can be selected in the Power Management dialog box: You may have the notebook standby, hibernate, or you can power off the computer altogether. Standby All devices are powered up and in suspend mode except for the CPU clock. Power Management —Error! Style not defined. Hibernate Hibernate is similar to turning off the computer, except that the current state of the computer is copied to the hard disk. When the computer returns from hibernation mode, the desktop appears with the same files and programs open prior to your computer entering hibernation mode. Hibernate is very useful when you don't want to take the time to shut down all open programs one by one to shut off the computer, only to have to open the same programs and files the next time you use the computer. Power Off System is powered off. Initiating Suspend Mode There are four ways to initiate suspend mode. The settings can be adjusted in the Power Management dialog box: • The computer will automatically enter suspend mode when not used for a set period of time. • Selecting the Stand by button in the Shut Down Windows dialog box. • Closing the screen cover (assuming no external monitor has been connected). • Pressing the power button (if enabled in power settings). • Pressing the suspend function key <Fn> + <F4>. Using the BIOS Utility for Power Management With Windows running in ACPI mode, power can be controlled through the Power Management dialog box only. With operating systems that use ACPI power management, BIOS power settings have no effect. Power Button Settings The function of the power button can be set to Shutdown or Standby in the Power Management Properties dialog box in the Windows Control Panel. However, holding the power button down for more than four seconds will force a power off while operating under any situation, resulting in the loss of any unsaved information. Power Management —Error! Style not defined. Power Saving Tips • Avoid operating the fax/modem, or audio and video applications when using battery power. Operating a fax modem, video, or audio equipment increases the computer's power requirements. • Decreasing monitor brightness can also save power. Decrease brightness by pushing <Fn> + <F6>. Increase it by pushing <Fn> + <F7>. When to Replace the Battery Over time, the battery's capacity gradually decreases. We recommend that you replace your battery when you notice that it begins to store significantly less charge. Changing the Battery Change the main battery pack as follows: 1.

Heat Considerations The computer's processor has been specially designed to consume little power and generates very little heat. However, working in a hot environment, or working for long periods may raise the temperature. Your computer takes the following steps to lower temperature: 1. The cooling fan will automatically turn on. You may feel air coming from a vent at the left side when this happens. 2. If the temperature continues to rise, processor activity will be reduced. You may notice a slight loss of performance when this happens.
