Safety Instructions
Use the following safety guidelines to help protect yourself and your
computer.
When Using Your Computer
Do not operate your portable computer for an extended period of time with
the base resting directly on your body. With extended operation, heat can
potentially build up in the base. Allowing sustained contact with the skin
could cause discomfort or, eventually, a burn.
■ Do not attempt to service the computer yourself. Always follow
installation instructions closely.
■ Do not carry a battery in your pocket, purse, or other container where
metal objects (such as car keys) could short-circuit the battery terminals.
The resulting excessive current follow can cause extremely high
temperatures and may result in damage from burns.
■ Be sure that nothing rests on your AC adapter's power cable and that
the cable is not located where it can be tripped over or stepped on.
■ Place the AC adapter in a ventilated area, such as a desk top or on the
floor, when you use it to run the computer or to charge the battery. Do
not cover the AC adapter with papers or other items that will reduce
cooling; also, do not use the AC adapter while it is inside a carrying case.
■ Use only the AC adapter and batteries that are approved for use with
this computer. Use of another type of battery or AC adapter may risk fire
or explosion.
Satellite P200/Satellite Pro P200
iii
■ Before you connect the computer to a power source, ensure that the
voltage rating of the AC adapter matches that of the available power
source.
115V/60Hz in most of North and South America and some Far Eastern
countries such as Taiwan.
100 V/50Hz in eastern Japan and 100 V/60Hz in western Japan.
230 V/50 Hz in most of Europe, the Middle East, and the Far East.
■ If you use an extension cable with your AC adapter, ensure that the total
ampere rating of the products that are plugged into it do not exceed the
ampere rating of the extension cable itself.
■ To help avoid the potential hazard of electric shock, do not connect or
disconnect any cables or perform maintenance or reconfiguration of this
product during an electrical storm.
■ When setting up the computer for work, place it on a level surface.
■ Do not dispose of batteries in a fire. They may explode. Check with local
authorities for disposal instructions.
■ When travelling, do not check the computer as baggage. You can put
your computer through an X-ray security machine, but never put your
computer through a metal detector. If you have the computer checked
by hand, be sure to have a charged battery available in case you are
asked to turn on the computer.
■ When travelling with the hard drive removed from the computer, wrap
the drive in a non-conducting material, such as cloth or paper. If you
have the drive checked by hand, be ready to install the drive in the
computer. Your can put the hard drive through an X-ray security
machine, but never put it through a metal detector.
■ When travelling, do not place the computer in overhead storage
compartments where it could slide around. Do not drop your computer
or subject it to other mechanical shocks.
■ Protect your computer, battery, and hard drive from environmental
hazards such as dirt, dust, food, liquids, temperature extremes, and
overexposure to sunlight.
■ When you move your computer between environments with very
different temperature and/or humidity ranges, condensation may form
on or within the computer. To avoid damaging the computer, allow
sufficient time for the moisture to evaporate before using the computer.
■ When you disconnect a cable, pull on its connector or on its strain relief
loop, not on the cable itself. As you pull out the connector, keep it evenly
aligned to avoid bending any connector pins. Also, before you connect
a cable make sure both connectors are correctly oriented and aligned.
■ Before you clean your computer, turn if off, unplug it from its power
source, and remove the battery.
■ Handle components with care. Hold a component such as a memory
module by its edges, not its pins.
iv
Satellite P200/Satellite Pro P200
When using telephone equipment in conjunction with your computer, basic
safety precautions should always be followed to reduce the risk of fire,
electric shock and injury to persons, including the following:
■ Do not use this product near water, for example, near a bathtub, washing
bowl, kitchen sink or laundry tub, in a wet basement or near a swimming
pool.
■ Avoid using a telephone (other than a cordless type) during an electrical
storm. There may be a remote risk of electric shock from lightning.
■ Do not use the telephone to report a gas leak in the vicinity of the leak.
■ Use only the power cord indicated in this manual.
■ Replace only with the same or equivalent type battery recommended by
the manufacturer.
■ Dispose of used batteries according to the manufacturer's instructions.
■ To reduce the risk of fire, use only No. 26 AWG or larger
telecommunication line cord.
Use only the battery pack that came with the computer or an optional
battery pack. Use of the wrong battery could damage your computer.
TOSHIBA assumes no liability for any damage in such case.

implemented systems) is prohibited. Connection to party lines service is
subject to state tariffs. If you have any questions about your telephone line,
such as how many pieces of equipment you can connect to it, the telephone
company will provide this information upon request.
Telephone company procedures
The goal of the telephone company is to provide you with the best service
it can. In order to do this, it may occasionally be necessary for them to make
changes in their equipment, operations, or procedures. If these changes
might affect your service or the operation of your equipment, the telephone
company will give you notice in writing to allow you to make any changes
necessary to maintain uninterrupted service.
If problems arise
If any of your telephone equipment is not operating properly, you should
immediately remove it from your telephone line, as it may cause harm to the
telephone network. If the telephone company notes a problem, they may
temporarily discontinue service. When practical, they will notify you in
advance of this disconnection.
If advance notice is not feasible, you will be notified as soon as possible.
When you are notified, you will be given the opportunity to correct the
problem and informed of your right to file a complaint with the FCC. In the
event repairs are ever needed on your modem, they should be performed
by TOSHIBA Corporation or an authorized representative of TOSHIBA
Corporation.
Disconnection
If you should ever decide to permanently disconnect your modem from its
present line, please call the telephone company and let them know of this
change.
Fax branding
The Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991 makes it unlawful for any
person to use a computer or other electronic device to send any message
via a telephone fax machine unless such message clearly contains in a
margin at the top or bottom of each transmitted page or on the first page
of the transmission, the date and time it is sent and an identification of the
business, other entity or individual sending the message and the telephone
number of the sending machine or such business, other entity or individual.
In order to program this information into your fax modem, you should
complete the setup of your fax software before sending messages.

Notes for Users in Australia and New Zealand
Modem warning notice for Australia
Modems connected to the Australian telecoms network must have a valid
Austel permit. This modem has been specifically configured to ensure
compliance with Austel standards when the country/region selection is set
to Australia.
The use of other country/region setting while the modem is attached to the
Australian PSTN would result in your modem being operated in a noncompliant manner. To verify that the country/region is correctly set, enter
the command ATI which displays the currently active setting.
To set the country/region permanently to Australia, enter the following
command sequence:
■ AT%TE=1
■ ATS133=1
■ AT&F
■ AT&W
■ AT%TE=0
■ ATZ
Failure to set the modem to the Australia country/region setting as shown
above will result in the modem being operated in a non-compliant manner.
Consequently, there would be no permit in force for this equipment and the
Telecoms Act 1991 prescribes a penalty of $12,000 for the connection of
non-permitted equipment.
Notes for use of this device in New Zealand
■ The grant of a Telepermit for a device in no way indicates Telecom
acceptance of responsibility for the correct operation of that device
under all operating conditions. In particular the higher speeds at which
this modem is capable of operating depend on a specific network
implementation which is only one of many ways of delivering high quality
voice telephony to customers. Failure to operate should not be reported
as a fault to Telecom.
■ In addition to satisfactory line conditions a modem can only work
properly if:
a/ it is compatible with the modem at the other end of the call and
b/ the application using the modem is compatible with the application
at the other end of the call - e.g., accessing the Internet requires
suitable software in addition to a modem.
■ This equipment shall not be used in any manner which could constitute
a nuisance to other Telecom customers.
Satellite P200/Satellite Pro P200
xxi
■ Some parameters required for compliance with Telecom's PTC
Specifications are dependent on the equipment (PC) associated with
this modem. The associated equipment shall be set to operate within
the following limits for compliance with Telecom Specifications:
a/ There shall be no more than 10 call attempts to the same number
within any 30 minute period for any single manual call initiation, and
b/ The equipment shall go on-hook for a period of not less than 30
seconds between the end of one attempt and the beginning of the
next.
c/ Automatic calls to different numbers shall be not less than 5 seconds
apart.
■ Immediately disconnect this equipment should it become physically
damaged, and arrange for its disposal or repair.
■ The correct settings for use with this modem in New Zealand are as
follows:
ATB0 (CCITT operation)
AT&G2 (1800 Hz guard tone)
AT&P1 (Decadic dialling make-break ratio =33%/67%
ATS0=0 (not auto answer)
ATS10=less than 150 (loss of carrier to hangup delay, factory default of
15 recommended)
ATS11=90 (DTMF dealing on/off duration=90 ms)
ATX2 (Dial tone detect, but not (U.S.A.) call progress detect)
■ When used in the Auto Answer mode, the S0 register must be set with
a value of 3 or 4. This ensures:
(a) a person calling your modem will hear a short burst of ringing before
the modem answers. This confirms that the call has been
successfully switched through the network.
(b) caller identification information (which occurs between the first and
second ring cadences) is not destroyed.
■ The preferred method of dialling is to use DTMF tones (ATDT...) as this
is faster and more reliable than pulse (decadic) dialling. If for some
reason you must use decadic dealing, your communications program
must be set up to record numbers using the following translation table
as this modem does not implement the New Zealand "Reverse Dialling"
standard.
Number to be dialled: 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
Number to program into computer: 0 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1
Note that where DTMF dealing is used, the numbers should be entered
normally.
■ The transmit level from this device is set at a fixed level and because of
this there may be circumstances where the performance is less than
optimal. Before reporting such occurrences as faults, please check the
line with a standard Telepermitted telephone, and only report a fault if
the phone performance is impaired.

General Precautions
TOSHIBA computers are designed to optimize safety, minimize strain and
withstand the rigors of portability. However, certain precautions should be
observed to further reduce the risk of personal injury or damage to the
computer.
Be certain to read the general precautions below and to note the cautions
included in the text of the manual.
Creating a computer-friendly environment
Place the computer on a flat surface that is large enough for the computer
and any other items you are using, such as a printer.
Leave enough space around the computer and other equipment to provide
adequate ventilation. Otherwise, they may overheat.
To keep your computer in prime operating condition, protect your work area
from:
■ Dust, moisture, and direct sunlight.
■ Equipment that generates a strong electromagnetic field, such as stereo
speakers (other than speakers that are connected to the computer) or
speakerphones.
■ Rapid changes in temperature or humidity and sources of temperature
change such as air conditioner vents or heaters.
■ Extreme heat, cold, or humidity.
■ Liquids and corrosive chemicals.
Stress injury
Carefully read the Instruction Manual for Safety and Comfort. It contains
information on the prevention of stress injuries to your hands and wrists that
can be caused by extensive keyboard use. Chapter 3, Getting Started, also
includes information on work space design, posture and lighting that can
help reduce physical stress.
xxiv
Satellite P200/Satellite Pro P200
Heat injury
■ Avoid prolonged physical contact with the computer. If the computer is
used for long periods, its surface can become very warm. While the
temperature will not feel hot to the touch, if you maintain physical contact
with the computer for a long time, for example if you rest the computer
on your lap or if you keep your hands on the palm rest, your skin might
suffer a low-heat injury.
■ If the computer has been used for a long time, avoid direct contact with
the metal plate supporting the various interface ports as this can become
hot.
■ The surface of the AC adaptor can become hot when in use but this
condition does not indicate a malfunction. If you need to transport the
AC adaptor, you should disconnect it and let it cool before moving it.
■ Do not lay the AC adaptor on a material that is sensitive to heat as the
material could become damaged.
Pressure or impact damage
Do not apply heavy pressure to the computer or subject it to any form of
strong impact as this can damage the computer's components or otherwise
cause it to malfunction.
PC Card overheating
Some PC Cards can become hot during prolonged use which may result in
errors or instability in the operation of the device in question. In addition,
you should also be careful when you remove a PC Card that has been used
for a long time.
Mobile phones
Please be aware that the use of mobile phones can interfere with the audio
system. The operation of the computer will not be impaired in any way, but
it is recommended that a minimum distance of 30cm is maintained between
the computer and a mobile phone that is in use.
Instruction Manual for Safety and Comfort
All important information on the safe and proper use of this computer is
described in the enclosed Instruction Manual for Safety and Comfort. Be
sure to read it before using the computer.

This product has a FingerPrint utility installed for the purpose of enrolling
and recognizing FingerPrints. By enrolling the ID and password to the
FingerPrint authentication device, it is no longer necessary to input the
password from the keyboard. Just by swiping the finger against the
FingerPrint sensor, the following functions will be enabled:
■ Logon to Windows and access a security-enabled homepage through
IE (Internet Explorer).
■ Files and folders can be encrypted/decrypted and third party access to
them prevented.
■ Disable the password-protected screen-saver when returning from

■ Power-on Security and Single Sign-On feature.
To "swipe" refers to the action of reading a FingerPrint using the FingerPrint
sensor.
Satellite P200/Satellite Pro P200

Operating Basics
How the Swipe the Finger
Using the following steps when swiping fingers for FingerPrint registration
or authentication will help to minimize authentication failures:
1. Align the first joint of the finger to the center of the sensor. Lightly touch
the sensor and swipe finger levelly towards you.
While lightly touching the sensor, swipe the finger towards you until the
sensor surface becomes visible.
Ensure the center of the FingerPrint is on the sensor when swiping the
finger.
■ Avoid swiping with the finger stiff or pressed-on too hard
FingerPrint reading may fail if the center of the FingerPrint is not touching
on the sensor, or when finger is swiped while pressing hard.
Make sure that the center of the FingerPrint is touching the sensor before
swiping.
■ Confirm the center of the FingerPrint whirl before swiping
The thumb's FingerPrint has a bigger whirl, which is prone to
misalignment and distortions. This will cause difficulty in registration and
a drop in the authentication success rate. Always confirm the center of
the FingerPrint whirl so that it is swiped along the centerline of the
sensor.
■ When FingerPrint reading is not successful
There is a possibility of authentication failures if the finger is swiped too
quickly or too slowly. Follow the onscreen instructions to adjust the
speed of the swipe.
The following illustrations show the correct way to slide your finger over the
recognition sensor.
Align the finger and sensor like the drawings.

Writing CDs/DVDs on a DVD Super Multi drive
supporting double layer disc recording
You can use the DVD Super Multi drive to write data to either CD-R/RW or
DVD-R/-RW/+R/+RW/-RAM discs. The following applications for writing are
preinstalled:
TOSHIBA Disc Creator/Direct Disc Writer. Ulead DVD MovieFactory® for
TOSHIBA, which is a product of Ulead Systems, Inc.
Important message
Before you write or rewrite to CD-R/RW or DVD-R/-RW/+R/+RW/-RAM
media, read and follow all set-up and operating instructions in this section.
If you fail to do so, the DVD Super Multi drive may not function properly,
and you may fail to write or rewrite, lose data or incur other damage.
Disclaimer
TOSHIBA does not bear responsibility for the following:
■ Damage to any CD-R/RW or DVD-R/-RW/+R/+RW/-RAM disc that may
be caused by writing or rewriting with this product.
■ Any change or loss of the recorded contents of CD-R/RW or DVD-R/RW/ +R/+RW /-RAM media that may be caused by writing or rewriting
with this product, or for any business profit loss or business interruption
that may be caused by the change or loss of the recorded contents.
■ Damage that may be caused by using third party equipment or software.
Given the technological limitations of current optical disc writing drives, you
may experience unexpected writing or rewriting errors due to disc quality
or problems with hardware devices. Also, it is a good idea to make two or
more copies of important data, in case of undesired change or loss of the
recorded contents.

Operating Basics
■ If the disc is poor in quality, dirty or damaged, writing or rewriting errors
may occur. Be careful to check the disc for dirt or damage before you
use it.
■ The actual number of rewrites to CD-RW or DVD-RW/+RW/-RAM is
affected by the quality of the disc and the way it is used.
■ There are two types of DVD-R: authoring and general use discs. Do not
use authoring discs. Only general use discs can be written to by a
computer drive.
■ We can support only Format 1 of DVD-R DL. Therefore you can not do
the additional writing. If your data is under DVD-R (SL) capacity, we
suggest to use DVD-R (SL) media.
■ You can use DVD-RAM discs that can be removed from a cartridge and
DVD-RAM discs designed without a cartridge. You cannot use a disc
with a 2.6 GB single-sided capacity or 5.2 GB double-sided capacity.
■ Other DVD-ROM drives for computers or other DVD players may not be
able to read DVD-R/+R/-RW/+RW/-RAM discs.
■ Data written to a CD-R/DVD-R/+R disc cannot be deleted either in whole
or in part.
■ Data deleted (erased) from a CD-RW and DVD-RW/+RW/-RAM disc
cannot be recovered. Check the content of the disc carefully before you
delete it. If multiple drives that can write data to discs are connected, be
careful not to delete data from the wrong drive.
■ In writing to a DVD-R/+R/-RW/+RW disc, some disc space is required
for file management, so you may not be able to write the full capacity of
the disc.
■ Since the disc is based on the DVD-R/-RW standard, it will be filled with
dummy data if the written data is less than about 1 GB. Even if you write
only a small amount of data, it might take time to fill in the dummy data.
■ Two types of DVD-R/+R/-RW/+RW/-RAM discs are on the market: data
and video. Use a video disc to store video data. You can use video discs
on a DVD recorder as well as on your computer's DVD-ROM drive. You
cannot use data discs on a DVD recorder.
■ DVD-RAM formatted by FAT32 cannot be read in Windows 2000 without
DVD-RAM Driver Software.
■ When multiple drives that can write data to discs are connected, be
careful not to write to the wrong drive.
■ Be sure to connect the universal AC adapter before you write or rewrite.
■ Before you enter Sleep/Hibernation Mode, be sure to finish DVD-RAM
writing. Writing is finished if you can eject DVD-RAM media.
■ Be sure to close all other software programs except the writing software.
■ Do not run software such as a screen saver, which can put a heavy load
on the CPU.

The Keyboard
The computer's keyboard layouts are compatible with a 104/105-key
enhanced keyboard. By pressing some keys in combination, all the 104/
105-key keyboard functions can be executed on the computer.
The number of keys on your keyboard depends on which country/region's
keyboard layout your computer is configured with. Keyboards for numerous
languages are available.
There are five types of keys: typewriter keys, keypad overlay, function keys,
soft keys and cursor control keys.
Typewriter keys
The typewriter keys, produce the upper- and lower-case letters, numbers,
punctuation marks, and special symbols that appear on the screen.
There are some differences, however, between using a typewriter and using
a computer keyboard:
■ Letters and numbers produced in computer text vary in width. Spaces,
which are created by a space character may also vary depending on line
justification and other factors.
■ The lowercase l (el) and the number 1 (one) are not interchangeable on
computers as they are on a typewriter.
■ The uppercase O (oh) and the 0 (zero) are not interchangeable.
■ The Caps Lock function key locks only the alphabetic characters in
uppercase while the shift lock on a typewriter places all keys in the
shifted position.
■ The Shift keys, the Tab key, and the BkSp (backspace) key perform the
same function as their typewriter counterparts but also have special
computer functions.

The Keyboard
F1 ... F12 function keys
The function keys, not to be confused with Fn, are the 12 keys at the top of
your keyboard. These keys are dark gray, but function differently from the
other dark gray keys.
F1 through F12 are called function keys because they execute programmed
functions when pressed. Used in combination with the Fn key, keys marked
with icons execute specific functions on the computer. See the section, Soft
keys: Fn key combinations, in this chapter. The function executed by
individual keys depends on the software you are using.
Soft keys: Fn key combinations
The Fn (function) is unique to TOSHIBA computers and is used in
combination with other keys to form soft keys. Soft keys are key
combinations that enable, disable or configure specific features.
Some software may disable or interfere with soft-key operations. Soft-key
settings are not restored by the Sleep feature.
Emulation keys
Your software may require you to use keys that the keyboard does not have.
Pressing the Fn key and one of the following keys simulates the enhanced

5. Charge the battery pack only in an ambient temperature between 5 and
30 degrees Celsius. Otherwise, the electrolyte solution might leak,
battery pack performance might deteriorate and the battery life might
be shortened.
6. Be sure to monitor the remaining battery power. If the battery pack or
real time clock battery discharge completely, Sleep Mode will not
function, and data in memory will be lost, and the computer might
register an incorrect time and date. In this case, connect the AC adapter
to recharge the batteries.
7. Never install or remove the battery pack without first turning off the
power and disconnecting the AC adapter. Never remove the battery
pack while the computer is in Sleep Mode as data will be lost.
Note
1. Never remove the battery pack while the Wake-up on LAN function is
enabled. Data will be lost. Before you remove a battery pack, disable
the Wake-up on LAN function.
2. To ensure the battery pack maintains maximum capacity, operate the
computer on battery power once a week until the battery pack is fully
discharged. Refer to the section Extending battery life in this chapter for
procedures. If the computer is continuously operated on AC power for
an extended period, more than a week, the battery might fail to retain a
charge. It might not function efficiently over the expected life of the
battery pack and the Battery indicator might not indicate a low-battery
condition.
3. After the battery pack is charged, avoid leaving the AC adapter
connected and the computer turned off for more than a few hours at a
time. Continuing to charge a fully charged battery pack can damage the
battery.
Charging the batteries
When the power in the battery pack becomes low, the Battery indicator
flashes amber indicating that only a few minutes of battery power remain.
If you continue to use the computer while the Battery indicator flashes, the
computer enables Hibernation mode (so you don't lose data) and
automatically turns off.
You must recharge a battery pack when it becomes discharged.
Procedures
To recharge a battery pack while it is installed in the computer, connect the
AC adapter to the DC IN socket and plug the other end into a working outlet.
The Battery indicator glows amber when the battery is being charged.
Use only the computer connected to an AC power source to charge the
battery pack. Do not attempt to charge the battery pack with any other
charger.

The charging time when the computer is on is affected by ambient
temperature, the temperature of the computer and how you use the
computer.
If you make heavy use of external devices the battery might scarcely charge
at all during operation. Refer also to the section Maximizing battery
operating time.
Battery charging notice
The battery may not charge right away under the following conditions:
■ The battery is extremely hot or cold. To make sure the battery charges
to its full capacity, charge the battery at room temperature of 10° to 30°C
(50° to 86°F).
■ The battery is nearly completely discharged. Leave the AC adapter
connected for a few minutes and the battery should begin charging.
Once a battery pack is fully charged, it is recommended that you operate
the computer only on battery power until the battery pack completely
discharges. Doing so extends battery life and helps ensure accurate
monitoring of battery capacity.
The Battery indicator may show a rapid decrease in battery operating time
when you try to charge a battery under the following conditions:
■ The battery has not been used for a long time.
■ The battery has completely discharged and been left in the computer
for a long time.
■ A cool battery is installed in a warm computer.
In such case, follow the steps below.
1. Fully discharge the battery by leaving it in the computer with the power
on until the power automatically shuts off.
2. Plug in the AC adapter.
3. Charge the battery until the Battery indicator glows blue (depending the
model you purchased).
Repeat these steps two or three times until the battery recovers normal
capacity.

Satellite P200/Satellite Pro P200
Power and Power-Up Modes
Leaving the AC adapter connected will shorten battery life. At least once a
week, run the computer on battery power until the battery is fully
discharged, then recharge the battery.
Monitoring battery capacity
Remaining battery power can be monitored using the following methods.
■ Clicking the battery icon on the task bar
■ Via the Battery Stats in the Windows Mobility Center Window
■ You should wait at least 16 seconds after turning on the computer
before trying to monitor the remaining operating time. This is because
the computer needs this time to check the battery’s remaining capacity
and then calculate the remaining operating time, based on this together
with the current power consumption.
■ Please be aware that the actual remaining operation time may differ
slightly from the calculated time.
With repeated discharges and recharges, the battery's capacity will
gradually decrease. In view of this it will be noted that an often used, older
battery will not operate for as long as a new battery even when both are
fully charged.
Maximizing battery operating time
A battery's usefulness depends on how long it can supply power on a single
charge.
How long the charge lasts in a battery depends on:
■ How you configure the computer (for example, whether you enable
battery power saving options). The computer provides a battery save
mode to conserve battery power. This mode has the following options:
■ Display auto off
■ Hard Disk Drive auto off
■ System auto off
■ LCD brightness
■ How often and how long you use the hard disk, optical media drive and
the disk drive (if one is connected).
■ How much charge the battery contained to begin with.
■ Enabling Sleep Mode or Hibernation Mode conserves battery power if
you are frequently turning the computer off and on.
■ Where you store your programs and data.
■ Closing the display when you are not using the keyboard saves power.
■ Operating time decreases at low temperatures.
■ The condition of the battery terminals. Make sure the battery terminals
stay clean by wiping them with a clean dry cloth before installing the
battery pack.

Extending battery life
To maximize the life of your battery pack:
■ If you have extra battery packs, rotate their use.
■ If you will not be using the system for an extended period, remove the
battery pack.
■ Store spare battery packs in a cool dry place out of direct sunlight.
Replacing the battery pack
When the battery pack reaches the end of its operating life you will need to
install a new one. If the Battery indicator flashes amber shortly after the
battery has been fully recharged, the battery pack needs to be replaced.
You might also replace a discharged battery pack with a charged spare
when you are operating your computer away from an AC power source. This
section explains how to remove and install the battery pack.
Removing the battery pack
To replace a discharged battery pack, follow the steps below.
■ When handling battery packs, be careful not to short circuit the
terminals. Also do not drop, hit or otherwise apply impact; do not
scratch or break the casing and do not twist or bend the battery pack.
■ Do not remove the battery pack while the computer is in Sleep Mode
as data in memory will be lost.

i.LINK (IEEE1394a)
i.LINK (IEEE1394a) is used for high-speed data transfer for a range of
compatible devices such as:
■ Digital video cameras
■ Hard disk drives
■ MO drives
■ Optical disc drives
i.LINK uses a four-pin connector, which does not carry electric current.
External devices will need their own power supply.
Precautions
■ Make a back-up of your data before transferring it to the computer. There
is a possibility that the original data will be damaged. There is a particular
risk that some frames will be deleted in the case of digital video transfer.
■ Do not transfer data in areas where static electricity is easily generated
or in areas subjected to electronic noise. Data can be destroyed.
■ If you are transferring data through an IEEE1394a hub, do not connect
or disconnect other devices from the hub during data transfer. There is
a likelihood that data will be damaged. Connect all devices to the hub
before you turn on the computer's power.
Connecting
1. Make sure the connectors are properly aligned and plug the i.LINK
(IEEE1394a) cable into the computer.
2. Plug the other end of the cable into the device.
Note the following when you use i.LINK:
■ You may need to install drivers for your i.LINK devices.
■ Not all i.LINK devices have been tested. Therefore, compatibility with all
i.LINK devices cannot be guaranteed.
■ Use S100, S200 or S400 cables no longer than three meters.
■ Some devices might not support Sleep or automatic off functions.
■ Do not connect or disconnect an i.LINK device while it is using an
application or when the computer is automatically shutting it down to
save power. Data might be destroyed.
Disconnecting
1. Click the Safely Remove Hardware icon on the Task Bar.
2. Point to i.LINK (IEEE1394a) device and click.
3. Disconnect the cable from the computer then from the i.LINK device.

Troubleshooting
TOSHIBA designed the computer for durability. However, should problems
occur, following the procedures in this chapter can help to determine the
cause.
All readers should become familiar with this chapter. Knowing what might
go wrong can help prevent problems from occurring.
Problem solving process
Resolving problems will be much easier if you observe the following
guidelines:
■ Stop immediately when you recognize a problem exists. Further action
may result in data loss or damage. You may destroy valuable problemrelated information that can help solve the problem.
■ Observe what is happening. Write down what the system is doing and
what actions you performed immediately before the problem occurred.
If you have a printer attached, print a copy of the screen using PrtSc.
■ Isolate the problem. Using the tools available to you, such as the
troubleshooting tips in this chapter, try to discover the specific actions
that caused the problem.
The questions and procedures offered in this chapter are meant as a guide,
they are not definitive problem solving techniques. Many problems can be
solved simply, but a few may require help from your dealer. If you find you
need to consult your dealer or others, be prepared to describe the problem
in as much detail as possible.
User’s Manual

Troubleshooting
Preliminary checklist
Consider the simplest solution first. The items in this checklist are easy to
fix and yet can cause what appears to be a serious problem.
■ Make sure you turn on all peripheral devices before you turn on the
computer.
This includes your printer and any other external device you are using.
■ Before you attach an external device, turn the computer off. When you
turn the computer back on it recognizes the new device.
■ Make sure all options are set properly in the setup program.
■ Check all cables. Are they correctly and firmly attached? Loose cables
can cause signal errors.
■ Inspect all connecting cables for loose wires and all connectors for loose
pins.
■ Check that the optical disc drive is correctly inserted.
Make notes of your observations and keep them in a permanent error log.
This will help you describe your problems to your dealer. If a problem recurs,
the log will help you identify the problem faster.
Analyzing the problem
Sometimes the system gives clues that can help you identify why it is
malfunctioning. Keep the following questions in mind:
■ Which part of the system is not operating properly: keyboard, disk drives,
hard disk drive, printer, display. Each device produces different
symptoms.
■ Is the operating system configuration set properly? Check the
configuration options.
■ What appears on the display screen? Does it display any messages or
random characters? Print a copy of the screen if you have a printer
attached. Look up the messages in the software and operating system
documentation. Check that all connecting cables are correctly and firmly
attached. Loose cables can cause erroneous or intermittent signals.
■ Do any indicators light? Which ones? What color are they? Do they stay
on or blink? Write down what you see.
■ Do you hear any beeps? How many? Are they long or short? Are they
high pitched or low? Is the computer making any unusual noises? Write
down what you hear.
Record your observations so you can describe them to your dealer.

Troubleshooting
Software
The problems may be caused by your software. If
you cannot load a software package, the media
may be damaged or the program might be
corrupted. Try loading another copy of the
software.
If an error message appears while you are using a
software package, check the software
documentation. These documents usually include
a problem solving section or a summary of error
messages.
Next, check any error messages in the operating
system documentation.
Hardware
If you cannot find a software problem, check your
hardware. First run through the items in the
preliminary checklist above. If you still cannot
correct the problem, try to identify the source. The
next section provides checklists for individual
components and peripherals.

64-Bit Computing.
64-bit processors are designed to take advantage of 32 and 64 bit
computing.
64-bit computing requires that the following hardware and software
requirements are met:
■ 64-bit Operating System
■ 64-bit CPU, Chipset and BIOS (Basic Input/Output System)
■ 64-bit Device drivers
■ 64-bit applications
Certain device drivers and/or applications may not be compatible with a 64bit CPU and therefore may not function properly. A 32-bit version of the
operating system is preinstalled on your computer unless explicitly stated
that the operating system is 64-bit.
Memory (Main System)
Part of the main system memory may be used by the graphics system for
graphics performance and therefore reduce the amount of main system
memory available for other computing activities. The amount of main system
memory allocated to support graphics may vary depending on the graphics
system, applications utilized, system memory size and other factors. For
PC's configured with 4GB of system memory, the full system memory space
for computing activities will be considerably less and will vary bay model
and system configuration.
Battery Life
Battery life may vary considerably depending on product model,
configuration, applications, power management settings and features
utilized, as well as the natural performance variations produced by the
design of individual components. Published battery life numbers are
achieved on select models and configurations tested by Toshiba at the time
of publication. Recharge time varies depending on usage. Battery may not
charge while computer is consuming full power.
After going through many charge and discharge cycles, the battery will lose
its ability to perform at maximum capacity and will need to be replaced.
This is a normal phenomenon for all batteries. To purchase a new battery
pack, see the accessories information that is shipped with your computer.

HDD Drive Capacity
1 Gigabyte (GB) means 109 = 1,000,000,000 bytes using powers of 10. The
computer operating system, however, reports storage capacity using
powers of 2 for the definition of 1 GB = 230 = 1,073,741,824 bytes, and
therefore shows less storage capacity. Available storage capacity will also
be less if the product includes one or more pre-installed operating systems,
such as Microsoft Operating System and/or pre-installed software
applications, or media content. Actual formatted capacity may vary.
LCD
Over a period of time, and depending on the usage of the computer, the
brightness of the LCD screen will deteriorate. This is an intrinsic
characteristic of LCD technology.
Maximum brightness is only available when operating in AC power mode.
The screen will dim when the computer is operated on battery power and
you will not be able to increase the brightness of the screen.
Graphics Processor Unit (“GPU”)
Graphics processor unit ("GPU") performance may vary depending on
product model, design configuration, applications, power management
settings and features utilized. GPU performance is only optimized when
operating in AC power mode and may decrease considerably when
operating in battery power mode.
Wireless LAN
The transmission speed over the wireless LAN and the distance over which
wireless LAN can reach may vary depending on surrounding
electromagnetic environment, obstacles, access point design and
configuration, and client design and software/hardware configurations.
[54Mbps is the theoretical maximum speed under the IEEE802.11 (a/b/g)
standard.] The actual transmission speed will be lower than the theoretical
maximum speed.
Non-applicable Icons
Certain notebook chassis are designed to accommodate all possible
configurations for an entire product series. Therefore, please be aware that
your selected model may not have all the features and specifications
corresponding to all of the icons or switches shown on the notebook chassis.
