First things first
We would like to thank you for making an eMachines notebook your choice for
meeting your mobile computing needs.
Your guides
To help you use your eMachines notebook, we have designed a set of guides:
First off, the Just for Starters... poster helps you get started with setting up your
computer.
The eMachines Generic User Guide contains useful information applying to all
models in the eMachines product series. It covers basic topics such as eMachines
Recovery Management, using the keyboard, audio, etc. Please understand that
due to its nature, the Generic User Guide as well as the eMachinesSystem User
Guide mentioned below will occasionally refer to functions or features which
are only contained in certain models of the series, but not necessarily in the
model you purchased. Such instances are marked in the text with language such
as "only for certain models".
The Quick Guide introduces you to the basic features and functions of your new
computer. For more on how your computer can help you to be more productive,
please refer to the eMachinesSystem User Guide. This guide contains detailed
information on such subjects as system utilities, data recovery, expansion
options and troubleshooting. In addition it contains warranty information and
the general regulations and safety notices for your notebook. It is available in
Portable Document Format (PDF) and comes preloaded on your notebook.
