Maintaining Your System
Your system and its components need regular maintenance. Some programs
that help maintain the integrity of the hard disks in your system come as
part of your operating system. The following sections contain information
about maintaining your system.
Maintaining the hard disk
Hard disks need regular maintenance because running the system software
divides files, creates spaces between data, and otherwise decreases hard
disk performance. Windows 95 and Windows 98 provide maintenance tools
that help prevent possible hard disk problems. The two most important tools
for hard disk maintenance are the programs ScanDisk and Disk
Defragmenter. Windows NT has a similar maintenance tool called Check
Disk. To use these programs, consult your Windows Help or the operating
system documentation.
Hard disk partition information
The hard drive shipped with your Windows 95 or Windows 98 system is
partitioned using file allocation table (FAT)32.
The first 2 gigabytes (GB) of the hard drive shipped with your Windows
NT system are partitioned as FAT16. The rest of the space on the drive is
partitioned as NT file system (NTFS). Any other hard drives shipped from
the factory with your system are partitioned as NTFS.
FAT16, FAT32 and NTFS are different methods the operating system uses
to locate files on a hard drive. NTFS supports large drive sizes, but NTFS
partitions cannot be viewed with Microsoft® disk operating system
(MS-DOS®) diagnostic utilities, like fdisk. See your Windows NT manual
for more information on NTFS.

Installing LANDesk Client Manager
Intel’s LANDesk Client Manager is the Desktop Management Interface
(DMI) solution that is already loaded on your system. LANDesk Client
Manager lets you monitor your system for critical situations that may need
your attention. It also lets your system administrator remotely inventory and
manage systems on your network.
To install LANDesk Client Manager
1. In the C:\DMI folder, double-click the Setup icon to launch the
InstallShield® wizard.
2. Follow the instructions that appear on your screen. If you are prompted
for a password during the installation process, enter LOWTCO.
LANDesk Client Manager comes with complete electronic documentation
and online help. Refer to these documents and Help for any LANDesk
concerns.
Advanced Power Management (APM)
The Windows 95 and Windows 98 operating systems (together with a
supporting system board and BIOS capabilities) provide many power
saving options. You can set when you want to have the hard drive spin
down, if the monitor should go into a lowered power state, and other
options.
Consult your Windows Help or operating system documentation for more
information about using power management.
Maintaining and Cleaning Your System

Important!
If your system is part of a
Microsoft network, putting
your computer in sleep
mode does not disconnect
you from your network
connection.
Using Suspend Mode
Suspend, available in Windows 95, is a power management feature that lets
you leave your computer on in a power-saving mode. When your computer
is in Suspend, it appears to be off. However, it continues to receive incoming
faxes and perform automatic tasks you have scheduled. When you exit
Suspend, the computer returns to the state it was in without going through
the normal startup routine.
To put your system into Suspend
Important!
If you have a Novell
network and you put your
system in Suspend mode, it
will disconnect from the
network.
1. Save and close any open files to prevent data loss in the event of a
power failure.
2. Click Start, and then click Suspend on the Start menu.
3. The power LED turns amber and the monitor becomes dark,
indicating that the computer has entered Suspend mode.
To take your system out of Suspend
1. Press any key on the keyboard or move the mouse.
2. The power LED turns green, and your computer returns to the state it
was in before it entered Suspend. However, if your system is part of a
Novell network, putting your computer in Suspend disconnects you
from your network connection. To reestablish your network
connection:
A. Click Start and then click Shut Down.
B. From the Shutdown Windows options, select Close all programs and log
on as a different user. Selecting that option bypasses the restart
process and displays your network logon dialog box.
C. Enter your password and click OK. Your logon script runs and your
network connections are reestablished.

Protecting Against Viruses
A virus is a program written with malicious intent for the purpose of
creating havoc in a computer system. It attaches itself to executable files or
boot sectors, so it can replicate and spread. Some viruses may only cause
your system to beep or display messages or images on the screen. Other
viruses are highly destructive and corrupt or erase the contents of your files
or diskettes. To be safe, never assume any virus is harmless.
Viruses spread through direct contact with executable programs or boot
sectors. Diskettes used in a contaminated system get a virus and transfer the
virus when used in another system. A virus can also spread through
programs downloaded from bulletin boards or the Internet.
To protect your system against viruses
•
•
•
Obtain an antivirus program and scan your system regularly.
Make backup copies of all files and write-protect the diskettes.
Obtain all software from reputable sources and always scan new
software for any viruses before installing files.
If you suspect your system has been infected, find and remove the viruses
immediately using an antivirus program. Next, turn your system off and
leave it off for at least 15 seconds before turning it back on. This is the only
way to ensure the virus does not remain in your system RAM.
Maintaining and Cleaning Your System

Cleaning Your System
Your system needs to be cleaned occasionally. The following sections
contain information about caring for the parts of your system.
Cleaning the mouse
If the mouse pointer on the screen moves erratically when you move the
mouse, dirt is probably on the rollers inside the mouse.
To clean the mouse
1. Turn off the computer.
2. Turn your mouse upside down and remove the mouse ball cover.
3. Cup your hand under the mouse and turn your mouse right-side up.
The mouse ball should drop into your hand. If it does not, gently shake
the mouse until the ball drops out of the socket.
4. Once the mouse ball is free, use adhesive tape to pick up any dust or
lint on its surface and wipe away dirt or lint inside the ball socket. You
can also blow into the socket to remove dirt and lint.
If foreign matter is trapped inside the socket or on the rollers, use a
cotton swab dipped in isopropyl alcohol to loosen it. Let surfaces dry
completely after cleaning.
5. Return the mouse ball to the socket and replace the cover.
Cleaning the keyboard
You should clean the keyboard occasionally to remove dust and lint
particles trapped under the keys. The easiest way to do this is to blow
trapped dirt from under the keys using an aerosol can of air with a narrow,
straw-like extension.
24
E-3200 User’s Guide
If you spill liquid on the keyboard, turn off the computer and disconnect the
keyboard. Turn the keyboard upside down to let the liquid drain out
overnight before trying to use it again. If it fails to work after draining,
contact Technical Support.
Cleaning the monitor screen
Use a soft cloth and window cleaner to clean the monitor screen. Squirt a
little cleaner on the cloth (never directly on the screen), and wipe the screen
with the cloth.
Cleaning the computer and monitor cases
Always turn off the computer and other peripherals before cleaning any
components.
Use a damp lint-free cloth to clean the computer case, monitor case,
keyboard, speakers, and other parts of your system. Avoid abrasive or
solvent cleaners because they can damage the finish on your components.

Terms and Definitions
This list of terms should help you get acquainted with terms used in your
computer’s documentation and in your system software.
Applications - Software installed on your system. Sometimes called
programs.
BIOS - Basic input/output system. The BIOS is software that is
independent of any operating system. It enables the computer to
communicate with the monitor, keyboard, and other peripheral devices
without using programs on the hard disk.
The BIOS on your computer is flash BIOS, which means that is has been
recorded on a memory chip that can be updated if needed.
Boot - To start your computer. A cold boot resets the computer and runs
through all computer self-tests. It is initiated by turning the computer off
and then on again. A warm boot clears out computer memory only and is
initiated by pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL.
Boot disk - A disk containing operating system programs required to start
your computer. A boot disk can be a diskette, hard drive, or CD.
Cache memory - Cache is very fast memory that can be located in the
processor. Cache reduces the average time required for the processor to get
the data it needs from the main memory by storing recently accessed data in
the cache.
CMOS memory - Complementary metal oxide semiconductor memory.
CMOS memory is memory that is retained even when the computer is
turned off. The Setup program settings and other parameters are maintained
in CMOS memory.
Disc - A compact disc (CD).
Disk - The device used by the computer to store and retrieve information.
Disk can refer to a diskette or a hard disk.
Diskette - A removable disk, also called a floppy.
Appendix A
