When traveling by air, carry the computer as hand luggage, and do not check it in with
the rest of your bags.

Ä Avoid
include airport walk-through devices and security wands. The airport security
devices that check carry-on luggage, such as conveyor belts, use X-rays instead of
magnetism and will not damage a drive.
In-flight computer use is at the discretion of the airline. If you plan to use the computer
during a flight, check with the airline in advance.
If the computer will be unused and disconnected from external power for more than
2 weeks, remove the battery and store it separately.
If you are shipping the computer or a drive, use suitable protective packaging and label
the package “FRAGILE.”
If the computer has a wireless device or a cell phone device installed, such as an
802.11b/g device, a Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) device, or a
General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) device, the use of these devices may be restricted
in some environments. Such restrictions may apply onboard aircraft, in hospitals, near
explosives, and in hazardous locations. If you are uncertain of the policy that applies to
the use of a particular device, ask for authorization to use it before you turn it on.
If you are traveling internationally, follow these suggestions:
❏ Check the computer-related customs regulations for each country on your itinerary.
❏ Check the power cord and adapter requirements for each location in which you plan
to use the computer. Voltage, frequency, and plug configurations vary.

Product Information and Troubleshooting
Routine care
Cleaning the display
: To prevent permanent damage to the computer, never spray water, cleaning
fluids, or chemicals on the display.
To remove smudges and lint, frequently clean the display with a soft, damp, lint-free cloth.
If the screen requires additional cleaning, use premoistened antistatic wipes or an antistatic
screen cleaner.
Cleaning the TouchPad and keyboard
Dirt and grease on the TouchPad can cause the pointer to jump around on the screen. To
avoid this, clean the TouchPad with a damp cloth, and wash your hands frequently when
using the computer.
: To reduce the risk of electric shock or damage to internal components, do
not use a vacuum cleaner attachment to clean the keyboard. A vacuum cleaner can
deposit household debris on the keyboard surface.
Clean the keyboard regularly to prevent keys from sticking and to remove dust, lint, and
particles that can become trapped beneath the keys. A can of compressed air with a straw
extension can be used to blow air around and under the keys to loosen and remove debris.

■ If the computer is running on battery power or is plugged into an external power source
other than an AC outlet, plug the computer into an AC outlet using the AC adapter. Be
sure that the power cord and AC adapter connections are secure.
The computer screen is blank
If the screen is blank, but the computer is on and the power light is lit, the computer may not

Product Information and Troubleshooting
The computer is unusually warm
It is normal for the computer to feel warm to the touch while it is in use. But if the computer
feels unusually warm, it may be overheating because a vent is blocked.
If you suspect that the computer is overheating, turn off the computer to allow the computer
to cool to room temperature. Then be sure to keep all vents free from obstructions while you
are using the computer.
To reduce the possibility of heat-related injuries or of overheating the
computer, do not place the computer directly on your lap or obstruct the computer air
vents. Use the computer only on a hard, flat surface. Do not allow another hard surface,
such as an adjoining optional printer, or a soft surface, such as pillows or rugs or
clothing, to block airflow. Also, do not allow the AC adapter to contact the skin or a soft
surface, such as pillows or rugs or clothing, during operation. The computer and the AC
adapter comply with the user-accessible surface temperature limits defined by the
International Standard for Safety of Information Technology Equipment (IEC 60950).
