Computing tips

Save your work frequently.

Your work stays in the computer’s temporary memory until you save it to the disk. You will lose all unsaved work, if, for example, a system error occurs and you must restart your computer, or your battery runs out of charge while you are working. Your computer can be configured to warn you when the battery is running low.

HINT: Some programs have an automatic save feature that you can turn on.

This feature saves your file to the hard disk at preset intervals. See your software documentation for details.

Back up your files to diskettes (or other removable storage media) on a regular basis. Label the backup copies clearly and store them in a safe place.

RG 5.375 x 8.375 ver 2.3.4

16

Playing a CD or DVD

Scan all new files for viruses.

Never turn off the computer if a drive indicator light indicates a drive is active.

The Windows

®

XP operating system records information, such as your desktop setup, during its shutdown procedure. If you do not let the operating system shut down normally, details such as new icon positions may be lost.

Using the TouchPad

TM

The TouchPad, the touch-sensitive cutout in front of the keyboard, enables you to move the cursor by brushing your finger on the surface in the direction you want the cursor to move. To move the cursor to the top of the screen, move your finger on the TouchPad away from you. To move the cursor to the bottom, do the opposite.

For more information on the TouchPad, see the electronic user’s guide.

Primary and secondary control buttons

When you want to click or choose an item, use the TouchPad to move the pointer/cursor to the item. Once the pointer/cursor is positioned, you can click it into place by either double-tapping the TouchPad or clicking the control buttons.

The control buttons are adjacent to the TouchPad and are used like the buttons on a mouse. The primary control button is the left one and corresponds to the left mouse button. To double-click, press the primary button twice in rapid succession.

The function of the secondary button depends on the program you are using. It usually corresponds to the right mouse button. Check your program’s documentation to find whether it uses the secondary mouse button.

Playing a CD or DVD

Maximizing battery life

A main battery can be recharged many times. Battery life and charge time vary depending on the applications, power management settings and features used. To maximize the life of your battery:

At least once a month, disconnect the computer from a power source and operate it on battery power until the battery fully discharges.

Before doing so, follow the steps below:

1

Turn off the computer’s power.

2

Disconnect the AC adapter and turn on the computer’s power. If it does not turn on, go to step 4.

3

Operate the computer on battery power for five minutes. If the battery has at least five minutes of operating time, continue operating until the battery is fully discharged. If the battery light flashes or there is some other warning to indicate a low battery, go to step 4.

4

Connect the AC adapter to the computer and the power cable to a power outlet. The DC-IN (if applicable to your system) or AC power light should glow green, and the battery light should glow amber to indicate that the battery is being charged. If the DC-IN or AC power light indicator does not glow, power is not being supplied. Check the connections to the AC adapter and power cable.

5

Charge the battery until the battery light glows green.

If you have extra batteries, rotate their use.

Important information on your Satellite® computer’s cooling fan

Important information on your Satellite

®

computer’s cooling fan

The CPU cooling fan on the underside of your Satellite computer cools the

CPU by drawing outside air into the computer.

To prevent possible overheating of the CPU, make sure the cooling fan's air intake is not blocked. The fan draws in air by creating a vacuum. If the fan is blocked, it could cause the CPU to run at a lower performance level or cause the computer to shut down. Loose items such as notebook and tissue paper, plastic wrappers, or other similar materials can block the air intake, preventing air from reaching the CPU. Do not use the computer on surfaces with objects that can be drawn in by the cooling fan.
