APPENDIX C
Regulatory Notices
Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) is any signal or emission, radiated in free space or conducted
along power or signal leads, that endangers the functioning of a radio navigation or other safety service or seriously degrades, obstructs, or repeatedly interrupts a licensed radio communications
service. Radio communications services include but are not limited to AM/FM commercial broadcast, television, cellular services, radar, air-traffic control, pager, and Personal Communication
Services (PCS). These licensed services, along with unintentional radiators such as digital devices,
including computer systems, contribute to the electromagnetic environment.
Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) is the ability of items of electronic equipment to function
properly together in the electronic environment. While this computer system has been designed and
determined to be compliant with regulatory agency limits for EMI, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause interference with
radio communications services, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, you
are encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:
•
•
•
•
Reorient the receiving antenna.
Relocate the computer with respect to the receiver.
Move the computer away from the receiver.
Plug the computer into a different outlet so that the computer and the receiver are on different
branch circuits.
If necessary, consult a Technical Support representative of Dell Computer Corporation or an experienced radio/television technician for additional suggestions. You may find the FCC Interference
Handbook, 1986, to be helpful. It is available from the U.S. Government Printing Office, Washington, DC 20402, Stock No. 004-000-00450-7 or on the World Wide Web at http://www.fcc.gov/
Bureaus/Compliance/WWW/tvibook.html.
Dell computer systems are designed, tested, and classified for their intended electromagnetic environment. These electromagnetic environment classifications generally refer to the following
harmonized definitions:
•
•
Class A is typically for business or industrial environments.
Class B is typically for residential environments.
Information Technology Equipment (ITE), including peripherals, expansion cards, printers, input/
output (I/O) devices, monitors, and so on, that are integrated into or connected to the system should
match the electromagnetic environment classification of the computer system.
Regulatory Notices
C-1
A Notice About Shielded Signal Cables: Use only shielded cables for connecting peripherals to
any Dell device to reduce the possibility of interference with radio communications services.
Using shielded cables ensures that you maintain the appropriate EMC classification for the
intended environment. For parallel printers, a cable is available from Dell Computer Corporation. If you prefer, you can order a cable from Dell Computer Corporation on the World Wide
Web at http://www.dell.com/products/dellware/index.htm.
A Notice About Networked Computer Systems: Some Dell computer systems that are classified for Class B environments may include an on-board network interface controller (NIC). If
your Class B system contains a NIC, it may be considered to be a Class A system at the time
that the NIC is connected to a network. When the NIC is not connected to a network, your system is considered to be a Class B digital device.
Most Dell computer systems are classified for Class B environments. To determine the electromagnetic classification for your system or device, refer to the following sections specific for each
regulatory agency. Each section provides country-specific EMC/EMI or product safety information.
FCC Notices (U.S. Only)
Most Dell computer systems are classified by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) as
Class B digital devices. However, the inclusion of certain options can change the rating of some configurations to Class A. To determine which classification applies to your computer system, examine
all FCC registration labels located on the bottom or back panel of your computer, on card-mounting
brackets, and on the cards themselves. If any one of the labels carries a Class A rating, your entire
system is considered to be a Class A digital device. If all labels carry an FCC Class B rating as distinguished by either an FCC ID number or the FCC logo, (
), your system is considered to be a
Class B digital device.
Once you have determined your system’s FCC classification, read the appropriate FCC notice. Note
that FCC regulations provide that changes or modifications not expressly approved by Dell Computer Corporation could void your authority to operate this equipment.
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two
conditions:
•
•
This device may not cause harmful interference.
This device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause
undesired operation.
Class A
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class A digital device pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against
harmful interference when the equipment is operated in a commercial environment. This equipment
generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance

If you are an end-user customer who bought new products directly from a Dell company, you may
return them to Dell within 30 days of the date of invoice for a refund or credit of the product purchase price. If you are an end-user customer who bought reconditioned or refurbished products from
a Dell company, you may return them to Dell within 14 days of the date of invoice for a refund or
credit of the product purchase price. In either case, the refund or credit will not include any shipping
and handling charges shown on your invoice. If you are an organization that bought the products
under a written agreement with Dell, the agreement may contain different terms for the return of
products than specified by this policy.
To return products, you must call Dell Customer Service to receive a Credit Return Authorization
Number. Refer to the chapter titled “Getting Help” in your system's troubleshooting documentation
or, for some systems, the section titled “Contacting Dell” in your system's online guide to find the

refund or credit, Dell expects you to return the products to Dell in their original packaging within
five days of the date that Dell issues the Credit Return Authorization Number. You must also prepay
shipping charges and insure the shipment or accept the risk of loss or damage during shipment. You
may return software for refund or credit only if the sealed package containing the diskette(s) or
CD(s) is unopened. Returned products must be in as-new condition, and all of the manuals, diskette(s), CD(s), power cables, and other items included with a product must be returned with it. For
customers who want to return, for refund or credit only, either applications software or an operating
system that has been installed by Dell, the whole system must be returned, along with any media and
documentation that may have been included in the original shipment.
This “Total Satisfaction” Return Policy does not apply to DellWare products, which may be
returned under DellWare's then-current return policy. In addition, reconditioned parts purchased
through Dell Spare Parts Sales in Canada are nonreturnable.
Year 2000 Statement of Compliance for Dell-Branded
Hardware Products
Dell-branded hardware products shipped on or after January 1, 1997, are eligible to carry the “NSTL
Hardware Tested Year 2000 Compliant” logo by virtue of formal testing with, and successful completion of, the National Software Testing Laboratories (NSTL) YMARK2000 test.* Dell will treat a
failure to pass the YMARK2000 test as a covered event under Dell's warranty for the product, subject to the normal warranty limitations.** For a complete copy of Dell's warranty, see the product's
documentation. Dell-branded hardware products will also recognize the year 2000 as a leap year.
*The YMARK2000 standard tests the ability of system hardware and firmware to support the transition to the
year 2000 (and to recognize leap years, when appropriate, for years 2000 through 2009 inclusive) and not that of
options, operating systems, or applications software. Dell-branded hardware products that pass the
YMARK2000 test conform to BSI-DISC
PD 2000-1.
** Except for this clarification of Dell's warranty for NSTL logo hardware, all other warranties, conditions and
remedies, express or implied, relating to year 2000 readiness or compliance are disclaimed. To make a claim
Warranty, Return Policy, and Year 2000 Statement of Compliance
D-7
under this warranty for NSTL logo hardware, customers must contact Dell prior to January 1, 2001. To make a
claim, write to:
Dell Computer Corporation
P.O. Box 149258
Austin, Texas 78714-9258
Attention: Year 2000
Despite a system's ability to pass the YMARK2000 test, actual rollover results in specific operating environments may vary depending on other factors including, but not limited to, other hardware, operating systems, and
applications software.
Previous Products
For Dell-branded hardware products shipped prior to January 1, 1997, that have an upgradable basic
input/output system (BIOS), Dell makes available a BIOS upgrade. Although these products may
not have been tested under the YMARK2000 test, Dell believes that the hardware would pass the
YMARK2000 test, provided the appropriate BIOS upgrade is properly loaded.
For Dell-branded hardware products that do not have an upgradable BIOS, Dell has made available,
as a convenience to customers, the Dell Program Patch, a software utility designed to assist customers in managing the year 2000 rollover.
Software
Dell specifically excludes all non-Dell-developed software from this compliance statement. All software run on Dell-branded hardware products should be independently verified by customers to be
year 2000-compliant.
The factory-installed software on your system is the current version provided by the software manufacturer and is validated by Dell for installation. Dell recommends that you check each software
manufacturer’s year 2000 Web site for updates to their products. Links to a number of these Web
sites can be found at the Dell year 2000 Web sites.
Additional Information
For additional information on year 2000 compliance of Dell-branded hardware products, refer to the
