Important safety information
Note
Please read important safety information first.
This information can help you safely use your ThinkCentre® or ThinkPad®
personal computer. Follow and retain all information included with your computer.
The information in this document does not alter the terms of your purchase
agreement or the Lenovo™ Statement of Limited Warranty.
Customer safety is important. Our products are developed to be safe and effective.
However, personal computers are electronic devices. Power cords, power adapters,
and other features can create potential safety risks that can result in physical injury
or property damage, especially if misused. To reduce these risks, follow the
instructions included with your product, observe all warnings on the product and
in the operating instructions, and review the information included in this
document carefully. By carefully following the information contained in this
document and provided with your product, you can help protect yourself from
hazards and create a safer computer work environment.
Note: This information includes references to power adapters and batteries. In
addition to mobile personal computers, some products (such as speakers
and monitors) ship with external power adapters. If you have such a
product, this information applies to your product. In addition, your
computer product may contain a coin-sized internal battery that provides
power to your system clock even when the machine is unplugged, so the
battery safety information applies to all computers.
Conditions that require immediate action
Products can become damaged due to misuse or neglect. Some product damage
is serious enough that the product should not be used again until it has been
inspected and, if necessary, repaired by an authorized servicer.
As with any electronic device, pay close attention to the product when it is
turned on. On very rare occasions, you might notice an odor or see a puff of
smoke or sparks vent from your machine. Or you might hear sounds like
popping, cracking or hissing. These conditions might merely mean that an
internal electronic component has failed in a safe and controlled manner. Or,
they might indicate a potential safety issue. However, do not take risks or
attempt to diagnose the situation yourself.
Frequently inspect your computer and its components for damage or wear or
signs of danger. If you have any question about the condition of a component,
do not use the product. Contact the Customer Support Center or the product
manufacturer for instructions on how to inspect the product and have it
repaired, if necessary.
In the unlikely event that you notice any of the conditions listed below, or if
you have any safety concerns with your product, stop using the product and
© Copyright IBM Corp. 2006
v
unplug it from the power source and telecommunication lines until you can
speak to the Customer Support Center for further guidance. See “Information
resources” on page xiii.
v Power cords, plugs, power adapters, extension cords, surge protectors, or power
supplies that are cracked, broken or damaged.
v Signs of overheating, smoke, sparks or fire.
v Damage to a battery (such as cracks, dents, creases), discharge from a battery, or
a buildup of foreign substances on the battery.
v A cracking, hissing or popping sound, or strong odor that comes from the
product.
v Signs that liquid has been spilled or an object has fallen onto the computer
product, the power cord or power adapter.
v The computer product, the power cord or power adapter has been exposed to
water.
v The product has been dropped or damaged in any way.
v The product does not operate normally when you follow the operating
instructions.
Note: If you notice these conditions with a product (such as an extension cord)
that is not manufactured for or by Lenovo, stop using that product until you
can contact the product manufacturer for further instructions, or until you
get a suitable replacement.
General safety guidelines
Always observe the following precautions to reduce the risk of injury and property
damage.
Service
Do not attempt to service a product yourself unless instructed to do so by the
Customer Support Center. Use only a service provider who is approved to repair
your particular product.
Note: Some parts can be upgraded or replaced by the customer. These parts are
referred to as Customer Replaceable Units, or CRUs. Lenovo expressly
identifies CRUs as such, and provides documentation with instructions
when it is appropriate for customers to replace those parts. You must closely
follow all instructions when performing such replacements. Always make
sure that the power is turned off and that the product is unplugged from
any power source before you attempt the replacement. If you have any
questions or concerns, contact the Customer Support Center.
Although there are no moving parts in your computer after the power cord has
been disconnected, the following warnings are required for proper UL certification.
vi
User Guide
Danger
Hazardous moving parts. Keep fingers and other body parts away.
Attention
Before replacing any CRUs, turn off the computer and wait three to five
minutes to let the computer cool before opening the cover.
Power cords and power adapters
Use only the power cords and power adapters supplied by the product
manufacturer.
Never wrap a power cord around the power adapter or other object. Doing so can
stress the cord in ways that can cause the cord to fray, crack or crimp. This can
present a safety hazard.
Always route power cords so that they will not be walked on, tripped over, or
pinched by objects.
Protect the cord and power adapters from liquids. For instance, do not leave your
cord or power adapter near sinks, tubs, toilets, or on floors that are cleaned with
liquid cleansers. Liquids can cause a short circuit, particularly if the cord or power
adapter has been stressed by misuse. Liquids can also cause gradual corrosion of
the power cord terminals and/or the connector terminals on the adapter which can
eventually result in overheating.
Always connect power cords and signal cables in the correct order and ensure that
all power cord connectors are securely and completely plugged into receptacles.
Do not use any power adapter that shows corrosion at the ac input pins and/or
shows signs of overheating (such as deformed plastic) at the ac input or anywhere
on the power adapter.
Do not use any power cords where the electrical contacts on either end show signs
of corrosion or overheating or where the power cord appears to have been
damaged in any way.
Extension cords and related devices
Ensure that extension cords, surge protectors, uninterruptible power supplies, and
power strips that you use are rated to handle the electrical requirements of the
Important safety information
vii
product. Never overload these devices. If power strips are used, the load should
not exceed the power strip input rating. Consult an electrician for more
information if you have questions about power loads, power requirements, and
input ratings.
Plugs and outlets
If a receptacle (power outlet) that you intend to use with your computer
equipment appears to be damaged or corroded, do not use the outlet until it is
replaced by a qualified electrician.
Do not bend or modify the plug. If the plug is damaged, contact the manufacturer
to obtain a replacement.
Some products are equipped with a three-pronged plug. This plug fits only into a
grounded electrical outlet. This is a safety feature. Do not defeat this safety feature
by trying to insert it into a non-grounded outlet. If you cannot insert the plug into
the outlet, contact an electrician for an approved outlet adapter or to replace the
outlet with one that enables this safety feature. Never overload an electrical outlet.
The overall system load should not exceed 80 percent of the branch circuit rating.
Consult an electrician for more information if you have questions about power
loads and branch circuit ratings.
Be sure that the power outlet you are using is properly wired, easily accessible,
and located close to the equipment. Do not fully extend power cords in a way that
will stress the cords.
Carefully connect and disconnect the equipment from the electrical outlet.
Batteries
All personal computers manufactured by Lenovo contain a non-rechargeable coin
cell battery to provide power to the system clock. In addition many mobile
products such as ThinkPad notebook PCs utilize a rechargeable battery pack to
provide system power when in portable mode. Batteries supplied by Lenovo for
use with your product have been tested for compatibility and should only be
replaced with approved parts.
Never attempt to open or service any battery. Do not crush, puncture, or incinerate
batteries or short circuit the metal contacts. Do not expose the battery to water or
other liquids. Only recharge the battery pack strictly according to instructions
included in the product documentation.
Battery abuse or mishandling can cause the battery to overheat, which can cause
gasses or flame to “vent” from the battery pack or coin cell. If your battery is
damaged, or if you notice any discharge from your battery or the buildup of
foreign materials on the battery leads, stop using the battery and obtain a
replacement from the battery manufacturer.
Batteries can degrade when they are left unused for long periods of time. For some
rechargeable batteries (particularly Lithium Ion batteries), leaving a battery unused
in a discharged state could increase the risk of a battery short circuit, which could
shorten the life of the battery and can also pose a safety hazard. Do not let
rechargeable Lithium-Ion batteries completely discharge or store these batteries in a
discharged state.

User Guide
Heat and product ventilation
Computers generate heat when turned on and when batteries are charging.
Notebook PCs can generate a significant amount of heat due to their compact size.
Always follow these basic precautions:
v Do not leave the base of your computer in contact with your lap or any part of
your body for an extended period when the computer is functioning or when
the battery is charging. Your computer produces some heat during normal
operation. Extended contact with the body could cause discomfort or, potentially,
a skin burn.
v Do not operate your computer or charge the battery near flammable materials or
in explosive environments.
v Ventilation slots, fans and/or heat sinks are provided with the product for safety,
comfort, and reliable operation. These features might inadvertently become
blocked by placing the product on a bed, sofa, carpet, or other flexible surface.
Never block, cover or disable these features.
You should inspect your desktop computer for dust accumulation at least once
every three months. Before inspecting your computer, turn off the power and
unplug the computer’s power cord from the electrical outlet; then remove any dust
from vents and perforations in the bezel. If you notice external dust accumulation,
you should also examine and remove dust from the inside of the computer
including heat sink inlet fins, power supply vents, and fans. Always turn off and
unplug the computer before opening the cover. If possible, avoid operating your
computer within 2 feet of high-traffic areas. If you must operate your computer in
or near a high-traffic area, you should inspect and, if necessary, clean your
computer more frequently.
For your safety and to maintain optimum computer performance, always follow
these basic precautions with your desktop computer:
v Keep the cover closed whenever the computer is plugged in.
v Regularly inspect the outside of the computer for dust accumulation.
v Remove dust from vents and any perforations in the bezel. More frequent
cleanings might be required for computers in dusty or high-traffic areas.
v Do not block or restrict airflow into the front of the computer.
v Do not block the airflow vents on the back of the computer.
v Do not store or operate your computer inside furniture, as this might increase
the risk of overheating.
v Airflow temperatures into the computer should not exceed 35° C (95° F).
v Do not use non-ThinkCentre air filtration devices.
CD and DVD drive safety
CD and DVD drives spin discs at a high speed. If a CD or DVD is cracked or
otherwise physically damaged, it is possible for the disc to break apart or even
shatter when the CD drive is in use. To protect against possible injury due to this
situation, and to reduce the risk of damage to your machine, do the following:
v Always store CD/DVD discs in their original packaging
v Always store CD/DVD discs out of direct sunlight and away from direct heat
sources
v Remove CD/DVD discs from the computer when not in use

Handling static-sensitive devices
Static electricity, although harmless to you, can seriously damage computer
components and options.
When you add an option, do not open the static-protective package containing the
option until you are instructed to do so.
When you handle options and other computer components, take these precautions
to avoid static electricity damage:
v Limit your movement. Movement can cause static electricity to build up around
you.
v Always handle components carefully. Handle adapters and memory modules by
the edges. Never touch any exposed circuitry.
v Prevent others from touching components.
v When you install a new option, touch the static-protective package containing
the option to a metal expansion-slot cover or other unpainted metal surface on
the computer for at least two seconds. This reduces static electricity in the
package and your body.
v When possible, remove the option and install it directly in the computer without
setting the option down. When this is not possible, place the static-protective
package that the option came in on a smooth, level surface and place the option
on it.
v Do not place the option on the computer cover or other metal surface.
Installing external options
This section shows the various external connectors on your computer to which you
can attach external options, such as external speakers, a printer, or a scanner. For
some external options, you must install additional software in addition to making
the physical connection. When adding an external option, use the information in
this section to identify the required connector, and then use the instructions that
come with the option to help you make the connection and install any software or
device drivers that are required for the option.

System programs
System programs are the basic layer of software that is built into your computer.
They include the power-on self-test (POST), the basic input/output system (BIOS)
code, and the Setup Utility program. POST is a set of tests and procedures that is
performed each time you turn on your computer. BIOS is a layer of software that
translates instructions from other layers of software into electrical signals that the
computer hardware can understand. You can use the Setup Utility program to
view and change the configuration and setup of your computer.
Your computer system board has a module called electrically erasable programmable
read-only memory (EEPROM, also referred to as flash memory). You can easily update
POST, BIOS, and the Setup Utility program by starting your computer using a
flash update diskette or by running a special update program from your operating
system.
Lenovo might make changes and enhancements to the system programs. When
updates are released, they are available as downloadable files on the World Wide
Web (see the Quick Reference). Instructions for using the system program updates
are available in a .txt file that is included with the update files. For most models,
you can download either an update program to create a system-program-update
(flash) diskette or an update program that can be run from the operating system.
Updating (flashing) BIOS from a diskette or CD-ROM
To update (flash) the BIOS from a diskette or CD_ROM, do the following:
1. Insert a system program update (flash) diskette or CD-ROM into the diskette
drive or optical drive. System program updates are available at

Recovering from a POST/BIOS update failure
If power to your computer is interrupted while POST/BIOS is being updated (flash
update), your computer might not restart correctly. If this happens, perform the
following procedure (also known as a Boot-block Recovery):
1. Turn off the computer and any attached devices, such as printers, monitors,
and external drives.
2. Unplug all power cords from electrical outlets, and remove the cover. See
“Removing the cover” on page 10.
3. Locate the Clear CMOS/Recovery jumper on the system board. See
“Identifying parts on the system board” on page 12.
4. If necessary, refer to Installing adapters to remove any adapters that impede
access to the Clear CMOS/Recovery jumper.
5. Move the jumper from the standard position (pins 1 and 2) to pins 2 and 3.
6. Replace the cover. See “Replacing the cover and connecting the cables” on
page 25.
7. Reconnect the power cords for the computer and monitor to electrical outlets.
8. Insert the POST/BIOS update (flash) diskette into drive A, and turn on the
computer and the monitor.
9. After the update session is completed, there will be no video and the series of
beeps will end. Remove the diskette from the diskette drive, and turn off the
computer and monitor.
10. Repeat steps 2 through 4.
11. Move the Clear CMOS/Recovery jumper to its original position.
12. Replace any adapters that were removed.
13. Replace the cover and reconnect any cables that were disconnected.
14. Turn on the computer to restart the operating system.

Appendix B. Cleaning the mouse
This appendix provides instructions on how to clean your mouse. The procedure
will be different depending on which type of mouse you have.
Cleaning an optical mouse
If you experience some problems with your optical mouse, check the following:
1. Turn the mouse over and look carefully at the lens area.
a. If there is a smudge on the lens, gently clean the area with a plain
cotton-tipped swab.
b. If there is some debris in the lens, gently blow the debris away from the
area.
2. Check the surface on which you are using the mouse. If you have a very
intricate picture or pattern beneath the mouse it is difficult for the digital signal
processor (DSP) to determine changes in the mouse position.
Cleaning a mouse with a ball
If the pointer on the screen does not move smoothly with the mouse, you might
need to clean the mouse.
Note: The following illustration might be slightly different from your mouse.

Retainer ring
Ball
Plastic rollers
Ball cage
To clean a mouse with a ball:
1. Turn off your computer.
2. Turn the mouse over, with the top side down, and look carefully at the bottom.
Twist the retainer ring1to the unlocked position to remove the ball.

33
3. Place your hand over the retainer ring and ball2, and then turn the mouse
over, top side up, so that the retainer ring and ball fall out into your hand.
4. Wash the ball in warm, soapy water then dry it with a clean cloth. Blow air
carefully into the ball cage4to dislodge dust and lint.
5. Look for a build up of dirt on the plastic rollers3inside the ball cage. This
build up usually appears as a stripe running across the middle of the rollers.
6. If the rollers are dirty, clean them by using a cotton swab soaked in isopropyl
(rubbing) alcohol. Turn the rollers with your finger and continue swabbing
them until all the dirt is removed. Be sure the rollers are still centered in their
channels after you clean them.
7. Remove any fibers from the swab that might be remaining on the rollers.
8. Replace the ball and the retainer ring.
9. Turn your computer back on.

Appendix C. Manual modem commands
The following section lists commands for manually programming your modem.
Commands are accepted by the modem while it is in Command Mode. Your
modem is automatically in Command Mode until you dial a number and establish
a connection. Commands can be sent to your modem from a PC running
communication software or any other terminal devices.
All commands sent to the modem must begin with AT and end with ENTER. All
commands can be typed in either upper or lower case, but not mixed. To make the
command line more readable, spaces can be inserted between commands. If you
omit a parameter from a command that requires one, it is just like specifying a
parameter of 0.
Example:
ATH [ENTER]
Basic AT commands
In the following listings, all default settings are printed in bold text.
