Getting Started
Power Sources
Your computer has two types of power source: a Lithium-Polymer battery or an AC adapter.
CONNECTING THE POWER ADAPTERS
The AC adapter provides power for operating your RGS Education Chromebook Laptop and charging the battery.
Connecting the AC Adapter
1.Plug the DC output cable into the DC power jack of your RGS Education Chromebook.
2.Plug the AC adapter into an AC electrical outlet.
Switching from AC Adapter Power to Battery Power
1.Be sure that you have at least one charged battery installed.
2.Remove the AC adapter. Your RGS Education Chromebook will automatically switch to battery power.
NOTE: The Lithium-Polymer battery is not charged upon purchase. Initially, you will need
to connect the AC adapter to use your RGS Education Chromebook.
RECHARGING THE BATTERY
The Lithium-Polymer battery is recharged internally using the AC adapter. To recharge the battery, make sure the battery is installed
and the computer is connected to the AC.
There is no “memory effect” in Lithium-Polymer batteries; therefore you do not need to discharge the battery completely before
recharging. The charge times will be significantly longer if your RGS Education Chromebook is in use while the battery is charging. If
you want to charge the battery more quickly, put your computer into Suspend mode, or turn it off while the adapter is charging the
battery.
Low Battery State
When the battery charge is low, a notification message appears. If you do not respond to the low battery message, the battery
continues to discharge until it is too low to operate. When this happens, your RGS Education Chromebook goes into Suspend mode.
There is no guarantee your data will be saved once the RGS Education Chromebook reaches this point.
CAUTION: To protect your computer from damage, use only the power adapter that
came with it because each power adapter has its own power output rating.
Once your RGS Education Chromebook goes into Suspend mode as a result of a dead battery you will be unable to resume operation
until you provide a source of power from an adapter. Once you have provided power, you can press the Suspend/Power On button to
resume operation. In Suspend mode, your data is maintained for some time, but if a power source is not provided promptly, the power
indicator stops flashing and the power goes out, in which case you have lost the data that was not saved. Once you provide power, you
can continue to use your computer while an adapter charges the battery.

Starting Your RGS Education Chromebook
POWER ON
The suspend/power on switch is used to turn on your RGS Education Chromebook from its off state. For first time use, you must
connect your AC adapter to the RGS Education Chromebook and fully charge the internal Lithium-Polymer battery, once the battery
charging status indicator has turned green, you can power on your RGS Education Chromebook by pressing the suspend/power on button located at the upper-right corner of the keyboard.
To power on your RGS Education Chromebook after first use, just open the lid of the RGS Education Chromebook. If the display panel is
opened and your RGS Education Chromebook is not powered on, press the suspend/power on button.
POWER OFF
If you need to take an extended break, press the suspend/power on button to lock the screen or simply close the lid of the RGS Education Chromebook. To power off your RGS Education Chromebook, press and hold the suspend/power on button or click the
button in
the lower-left corner of the screen to completely shut down your RGS Education Chromebook.
When you power on your RGS Education Chromebook, it will display the main sign-in screen. All Google Accounts that have been added
to your RGS Education Chromebook will be displayed. Click the Google Account you want to sign-in with and enter your password, this
will take you to your background wallpaper. If a fault is found, your computer will automatically take you to the recovery screen.

USING THE TOUCHPAD
A touchpad pointing device comes built into your computer. It is used to control the movement of the pointer to select items on your
display panel.
The touchpad consists of a cursor control, and a clicking area. The cursor
control works the same way a mouse does, and moves the cursor around
the display. It only requires light pressure from the tip of your finger.
The clicking area is on the lower half of the touchpad that functions as
mouse button. If tap-to-click is enabled, you can quickly tap the touchpad
to perform the click function. To right-click, click the touchpad with two
fingers. The actual functionality of the clicking area may vary depending
on the application that is being used.
Clicking
Clicking means pushing and releasing a button. To left-click, move the
cursor to the item you wish to select, press the clicking area once, and
then immediately release it. To right-click, move the mouse cursor to the
item you wish to select, tap on the touchpad with two fingers. You also
have the option to perform the clicking operation by tapping lightly on
the touchpad once.
Double-Clicking
Double-clicking means pushing and releasing the clicking area twice in rapid succession. To double-click, move the cursor to the item
you wish to select, press the clicking area twice, and then immediately release it. You also have the option to perform the double-click
operation by tapping lightly on the touchpad twice.
Dragging
Dragging means pressing and holding the clicking area, while moving the cursor. To drag, move the cursor to the item you wish to
move. Press and hold the clicking area while moving the item to its new location and then release it. Dragging can also be done using
only the touchpad. First, tap the touchpad once over the item you wish to move with one finger. Next, with a second finger move the
object to its new location by moving the second finger across the touchpad, and then release both fingers.
Scrolling
Scrolling means navigating through a document or web-pages quickly without having to use the on-screen cursor to manipulate the up
and down scroll bars. To scroll, simply place two fingers on the touchpad and move them up and down to scroll vertically, left and right
to scroll horizontally. This is particularly useful when you are navigating through on-line pages.
SNAP-ON MAGNIFICATION LENS (OPTIONAL)
Your RGS Education Chromebook comes with a snap-on magnification lens which adds a magnifying effect to the rotatable camera.
To attach the magnification lens to the camera follow these steps:
1. Open the display panel to a 90-degree angle.
2. Flip the camera around 180-degrees.
3. Place the magnification lens onto the camera lens and press down until it clicks
into place.

Troubleshooting
Your computer is sturdy and you should rarely encounter problems in the field. However, you may encounter simple setup or operating
problems that you can solve on the spot. The information in this section helps you isolate and resolve some of these straightforward
problems and identify failures that require service.
Identifying the Problem
If you encounter a problem, go through the following procedure before pursuing complex troubleshooting:
1.Turn off your RGS Education Chromebook.
2.Make sure the AC adapter is plugged into your RGS Education Chromebook and to an active AC power source.
3.Make sure that memory cards in the MicroSD and SIM card slot and all USB peripherals are seated properly. Removing all Memory/
SIM cards and USB peripherals is a good troubleshooting best practice to eliminate these devices as a possible cause of failure.
4.Make sure that any devices connected to the external connectors are plugged in properly. You can also disconnect such devices,
thus eliminating them as possible causes of failure.
5.Turn on your RGS Education Chromebook. Make sure it has been off at least 10 seconds before you turn it on.
6.If the problem has not been resolved, contact your RGS support representative. The support contact information is available on
www.avnetrgs.com. To ensure the fastest possible resolution, please have the following information available:
• Product name
• Product number
• Product serial number
• Purchase date
• Conditions under which the problem occurred
• Any error messages that have occurred
• Hardware configuration
• Type of device connected, if any
See the Configuration Label on the bottom of your RGS Chrome Learning Device for configuration
and serial numbers.
