QPresentation
When you plug an overhead projector into the VGA port of your Joybook, QPresentation automatically performs the following functions.
1. Detect that the projector has been connected and begin linking up Joybook
with it. This saves you from manually pressing <Fn>+<F3> to establish the
link.
2. Determine if the projector is capable of displaying Joybook’s current screen resolution. If it cannot, then determine the next best resolution the projector can
handle and automatically reset Joybook’s screen resolution to match that. This
matching of resolutions prevents the screen on Joybook from being cut-off
when displayed on the projector.
By default, QPresentation is turned on. You can turn it off by adjusting its settings
on the taskbar.
1. Locate the QPresentation icon
on the system tray of your desktop.
2. Right click on the QPresentation icon to bring the pop-up dialog.

FAQ and Troubleshooting
The following are descriptions of situations that you may encounter during use of
the Joybook, along with basic troubleshooting steps. If you are not able to resolve
the issue, immediately contact a BenQ service center for assistance.
Battery and Power
General
How long should I charge the battery for the first time?
What is Joybook? What are the differences between Joybooks and traditional
notebooks?
My computer won't start up with the battery inserted?
BenQ call it Joybook, because BenQ has combined entertainment and stylish
design with traditional notebook's functions. For example, enhanced 3D processing power for gaming and movie viewing. With Joybook, you will be able to enjoy
the most exciting audio and visual experience ever!
For new Joybooks, you should charge the battery for a minimum of 8 to 12 hours.
• Make sure the battery is properly inserted.
• Make sure that the battery is fully charged. If this does not work, consult your
BenQ dealer.
What should be the run time of a battery?
What is a Wireless LAN (WLAN)?
A WLAN is a type of Local Area Network (LAN) that uses high frequency radio
waves rather than wires to communicate and transmit data among nodes. It is a
flexible data communication system implemented as an extension to, or as an
alternative for, a wired LAN within a building or campus.
What is IEEE 802.11a/b/g?
IEEE 802.11a/b/g is a technical specification issued by the Institute of Electrical
and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) that defines the operation of 5 GHz/54Mbps, 2.4
GHz, 11 Mbps/54Mbps, Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum Wireless Local Area
Networks (WLANs).
What is Centrino technology? What are the advantages of notebook PC's using
the Centrino technology?
The Centrino technology enhances the performance of notebook PC's at low
power consumption by optimizing the integrated design of the entire computing
system and the application environment. The major components of Centrino
technology include Pentium-M CPU, Intel 915 chipset and Intel Pro/Wireless
2100 Mini-PCI network interface card. Therefore, if a notebook PC does not use
all of these components, we cannot say it uses the Centrino technology.
46
FAQ and Troubleshooting
Run time will vary on individual Joybooks, based on the application programs
being used (i.e. high graphics, games), the number of times data is saved or
retrieved from the hard drive and/or optical drive, the memory of notebook, and
chemistry and capacity of the battery. A “realistic” average run-time for a battery
is 1.5 to 3 hours. Again run time will vary on applications being used and individual notebooks.
What should I do with the battery if I will not use my Joybook for a longtime?
Recharge the battery or discharge it to about 40% full, and then store it in a dry
place at about 15°C to 25°C. Extremely high or low temperature will shorten the
life of battery.
When charging the battery, the power indicator on Joybook suggests that the battery is fully charged. When I check it from the Power Manager in Windows, the
battery level is only about 95%-99%. Why?
It is the result of the battery protection design of Joybook. When the power indicator on Joybook is off, it means that the battery has reached a saturated voltage:
95%-99%. At this moment, the voltage difference detected by Joybook is very
small, so it will reduce the charging current to prevent overcharging the battery
with excess current or voltage, which will damage the battery. Moreover, in order
to protect the battery from exposing to high voltage and current for a long time
during charging, the battery has been equipped with a protection circuit that will
charge the battery at low current in the final phase.
JB S72E.book Page 47

6:13 PM
How come my notebook is not fully charged even after a full night charge?
Make sure that the Joybook is receiving power. Is the cord plugged in correctly?.
When the battery is installed in the computer and it is properly plugged in to an
AC outlet, check to see if the battery level icon is showing a charge sign. If this
does not fix the problem, the battery, the power source in the notebook, or the AC
power cord may be defective. Consult your BenQ dealer for help and maintenance.
Connection
My modem does not connect at 56K speed?
Several factors can affect connection speed, such as line noise, number of people
connecting/connected to your ISP, and the age and condition of the telephone
lines. A 56K modem does not guarantee all connections at 56K; rather it offers the
ability to connect at up to 56K speed.
What should I do if the battery gets hot in my Joybook?
Take the battery out and let it cool down. If the problem persists once it is inserted
back into the Joybook, the battery could be defective and it may need to be
replaced.
Can't connect to the Internet with the built-in network interface on Joybook?
Check if the network has a fixed MAC address. Contact your network administrator for further solutions.
How to prolong the life of the battery?
Joybook is unable to use the infrared port to communicate with other devices.
• Avoid frequent full discharges because this puts additional strain on the battery.
Several partial discharges with frequent recharges are better for the battery than
one deep one.
• Although memory-free, apply a deliberate full discharge once every 30 charges
to calibrate batteries with fuel gauge. Running down the battery in the equipment does this. If ignored, the battery level icon will become increasingly less
accurate. The battery life will not be affected.
• Keep the battery cool. Avoid placing it in a hot car. For prolonged storage, keep
the battery at a 40% recharge level.
• Consider removing the battery from the Joybook when running on AC power.
Please confirm the following:
• Communication speeds for Joybook and the external device are identical.
• The infrared port is clean, and there are no objects blocking the path between
Joybook and the external device.
• The distance and angle between Joybook and device do not exceed the effective
range of the port.
• You are not attempting to establish the link under conditions of direct sunlight.
• There are no incompatibilities between the communications software that is
attempting to establish the infrared link and any other communications software on the computer. For further information, please consult the manual for
the particular software.
Joybook will not start up, even though the power button was pressed.
Check the power indicator.
• If it is not lit up, Joybook is not being supplied by power-either from an external
power source via the AC adapter or from the battery. Make sure that the AC
adapter is correctly inserted into the power jack of Joybook and a working electrical socket, and allow the battery to begin charging.
• If the power indicator is lit up in blue, the Joybook is being supplied normally
with power, meaning that the problem lies elsewhere.
• If you have added any hardware (memory for example), check if it has
been installed correctly.
• It is possible that certain operating system files are damaged or missing.
If so, you may need to first back up all your data and then use the restore
CD that came with the Joybook to return the its software to original
state. Please note however that doing so will cause all of your personal
data on the hard disk drive to be lost!
When connecting to a local network with Joybook, the connection is unstable.
The instructions below will guide you through the troubleshooting process.
1. Right-click My Computer and select Properties, Hardware, Device Manager.
2. Double click Network adapters. When the name of the network adapter of Joybook appears, double-click on it.
3. The Properties window will pop up. Click the Advanced tab, and then click the
Link speed & duplex item on the left.
4. Select the appropriate mode according to the settings of your LAN service from
the Value drop-down menu on the right, and then click OK.
• If the situation persists, use the Fn+F12 function key combination to shut down
wireless network function to reduce interference of different network connection modes.

Why does the keyboard and/or palm rest get warm?
Typically, the Joybook tends to be slightly warm. The location of the battery is typically underneath the palm rest and as a result, the palm rest gets warm. The location of the processor is typically underneath the keyboard and since heat rises, the
keyboard may slightly get warm. There is no need to be concerned. However, since
your computer has a thermally controlled fan, when the CPU and/or internal temperature of the notebook reaches a certain temperature level, the fan is turned ON
and stays ON until the temperature drops to a pre-defined level.

How can I reduce the wearing of the screen spindle when I open the screen?
The region code of the DVD inserted must match that of the DVD playback software used. This region code can be set up to five times. If you have not reached
this limit, a prompt will appear that will allow you to change the region code of
the software to match that of the move. Otherwise, you can only play back DVDs
with the same region code as the last DVD played back successfully.
We suggest that you open and close your screen gently and slowly with both
hands. Apply force evenly on both hands to reduce spindle wearing and prevent
deformation or breaking of spindle due to uneven force application.
Why is the hard drive capacity displayed by the OS be different from its nominated capacity?
Most users may have discovered that the capacity of a 10GB hard drive will
become 9GB when displayed from the OS; and 20GB become 19GB, 40GB
become 38GB..., etc. The bigger the capacity, the bigger the difference. It is
because hard drive makers and OS developers calculate hard drive capacity in different ways. As a result, the nominated capacity is different from the exact capacity
displayed by the OS.
Calculation of hard drive capacity
by drive makers
1GB=1,000MB
1MB=1,000KB
1KB=1,000 byte
Calculation of hard drive capacity
by OS developers
1GB=1,024MB
1MB=1,024KB
1KB=1,024 byte
Example of a 40GB hard drive:
Calculation by drive makers
40GB=40,000MB
=40,000,000KB
=40,000,000,000byte
Calculation by OS developers
40GB=40,960MB
=41,943,040KB
=42,949,672,960byte
Exact capacity of a 40GB hard drive displayed in the OS:
40,000,000,000÷1024÷1024÷1024=37.2529 (GB).
Furthermore, when you partition a hard drive, the system will reserve some space
on the drive for system files. Therefore, the total capacity of a hard drive displayed
by the OS will never be the same as its nominated capacity.
I hear noise when connecting an earphone to Joybook.
The instructions below will guide you through the troubleshooting process.
• Connect the earphone to other devices, such as a radio to see if you can still hear
that noise. If the noise persists, the earphone may be out of order.
• If you can hear the noise only when inserting, it is the result of high instantaneous current. It is a normal phenomenon.

FAQ and Troubleshooting
Display
There is nothing visible on the screen.
Check the power indicator.
• If it is not lit up, no power is being supplied to Joybook. Connect the AC adapter
and restart Joybook.
• If it is lit up in amber, Joybook has entered sleep mode in order to conserve
power. Simply pressing the power button should return Joybook to normal
operating mode.
• If it is lit up in blue, Joybook is being supplied normally with power. There are
two possible causes for the problem.
• The screen's brightness may be set too low. Use the Fn + F5 hotkey combination to increase the brightness.
• The display mode may be set to use an external display. Use the Fn + F3
hotkey combination to switch the display mode to use Joybook's own
LCD panel or to use simultaneous display.
When I connect the Joybook to an external monitor, the display is abnormal.
The instructions below will guide you through the troubleshooting process.
• Use the Fn+F3 function key combination to set external video signal enabled.
• Refer to the user's manual of the external monitor to check the settings.
• Connect the cable to the Joybook and reboot the system. If there is no display on
the external monitor after system reboot, connect Joybook to a standard VGA
monitor and wait until you can see things properly on that VGA monitor. Then
connect the target display to Joybook again.
• Check if you have connected devices to both the S-Video and VGA output on the
Joybook. If yes, disconnect the device connected to the S-Video output on the
Joybook to enable normal signal output from the VGA output. In general, if you
have connected devices to both S-Video and VGA output on the Joybook, the SVideo output will be selected in first priority.
