Recycling your battery
Over time, the batteries that run your mobile computer will begin to hold a charge for a shorter amount of time; this is a natural
occurrence for all batteries. When this occurs, you may want to replace the battery with a fresh one*. If you replace it, it is important
that you dispose of the old battery properly because batteries contain materials that could cause environmental damage if disposed of
improperly.
Fujitsu is very concerned with environmental protection, and has enlisted the services of the Rechargeable Battery
Recycling Corporation (RBRC)**, a non-profit public service organization dedicated to protecting our environment
by recycling old batteries at no cost to you.
RBRC has drop-off points at tens of thousands of locations throughout the United States and Canada. To find the
location nearest you, go to www.RBRC.org or call 1-800-822-8837.
If there are no convenient RBRC locations near you, you can also go to the EIA Consumer Education Initiative website
(http://EIAE.org/) and search for a convenient disposal location.
Remember – protecting the environment is a cooperative effort, and you should make every effort to protect it for current and future
generations.
* To order a new battery for your Fujitsu mobile computer, go to the Fujitsu shopping site at www.shopfujitsu.com in the US or
www.fujitsu.ca/products/notebooks in Canada.
** RBRC is an independent third party to which Fujitsu provides funding for battery recycling; RBRC is in no way affiliated with
Fujitsu.

DO NOT CARRY YOUR LIFEBOOK NOTEBOOK AROUND WITH THE POWER ON OR SUBJECT IT TO SHOCKS
OR VIBRATION, AS YOU RISK DAMAGING YOUR NOTEBOOK.
When you power on your LifeBook, it will perform a Power On Self Test (POST) to check the internal
parts and configuration for correct functionality. If a fault is found, your LifeBook notebook will emit an
audio warning and/or an error message will be displayed. See “Power On Self Test Messages” on page 91.
Depending on the nature of the problem, you may be able to continue by starting the operating system or
by entering the BIOS setup utility and revising the settings.
After satisfactory completion of the POST, your notebook will load your operating system.
38 - Starting Your LifeBook Notebook
NEVER TURN OFF YOUR LIFEBOOK NOTEBOOK DURING THE POWER ON SELF TEST (POST) OR IT WILL
CAUSE AN ERROR MESSAGE TO BE DISPLAYED WHEN YOU TURN YOUR LIFEBOOK NOTEBOOK ON THE
NEXT TIME. See “Power On Self Test Messages” on page 91.
Boot Sequence
The procedure for starting-up your notebook is termed the Bootup sequence and involves your notebook’s
BIOS. When your LifeBook notebook is first turned on, the main system memory is empty, and it needs
to find instructions to start up your notebook. This information is in the BIOS program. Each time you
power up or restart your notebook, it goes through a boot sequence which displays a Fujitsu logo until
your operating system is found. During booting, your notebook is performing a standard boot sequence
including a Power On Self Test (POST). When the boot sequence is completed without a failure and
without a request for the BIOS Setup Utility, the system displays the operating system’s opening screen.
The boot sequence is executed when:
• You turn on the power to your LifeBook notebook.
• You restart your notebook from the Windows Shut Down dialog box.
• The software initiates a system restart. Example: When you install a new application.
Hard Disk Drive Passwords
To provide additional security for your data, you can assign passwords to your hard disk drive(s). This
feature is managed in the system BIOS Setup Utility. See BIOS Setup Utility below for information about
accessing the utility.
REMEMBER YOUR PASSWORDS. IF YOU SET AND FORGET YOUR USER AND MASTER HARD DISK
PASSWORDS, FUJITSU COMPUTER SYSTEMS WILL NOT BE ABLE TO RESET IT. YOU MAY LOSE DATA AND
HAVE TO REPLACE YOUR SYSTEM BOARD OR HARD DISK DRIVE.

Power Management
Your LifeBook notebook has many options and features for conserving battery power. Some of these
features are automatic and need no user intervention. However, others depend on the parameters you set
to best suit your operating conditions, such as those for the display brightness. Internal power management
for your notebook may be controlled from settings made in your operating system, pre-bundled power
management application, or from settings made in BIOS setup utility.
Besides the options available for conserving battery power, there are also some things that you can do to
prevent your battery from running down as quickly. For example, you can create an appropriate power
saving profile, put your notebook into Sleep mode when it is not performing an operation, and you can
limit the use of high power devices. As with all mobile, battery powered computers, there is a trade-off
between performance and power savings.
Power/Suspend/Resume Button
When your notebook is active, the Power/Suspend/Resume button can be used to manually put the
notebook into Sleep mode. Push the Power/Suspend/Resume button when the notebook is active, but not
actively accessing anything, and immediately release the button. Note that if you press the button
continuously for four seconds or longer, your notebook will shut down.
If your notebook is suspended, pushing the Power/Suspend/Resume button returns your notebook to
active operation. You can tell whether the system is Suspended by looking at the Power indicator. If the
indicator is visible and not flashing, your notebook is fully operational. If the indicator is visible and
flashing, your notebook is in Sleep mode. If the indicator is not visible, the power is off or your notebook
is in Hibernation mode. (See Hibernation Feature)
Sleep Mode
Sleep mode in Windows saves the contents of your system memory during periods of inactivity by
maintaining power to critical parts. This mode turns off the CPU, display, hard drive, and all other internal
components except those necessary to maintain system memory and for restarting.
Your notebook can be put in Sleep mode by:
45 - Power Management
• Pressing the Power/Suspend/Resume button when your system is turned on.
• Selecting Sleep from the Windows Shut Down menu.
• Timing out from lack of activity.
• Allowing the battery to reach the Dead Battery Warning condition.
System memory typically stores the files on which you are working, open application information, and
any other data required to support operations in progress. When you resume operation from Sleep, your
system will return to where it left off. You must use the Power/Suspend/Resume button to resume
operation, and there must be an adequate power source available, or your notebook will not resume.
■
IF RUNNING YOUR NOTEBOOK ON BATTERY POWER, BE AWARE THAT THE BATTERY CONTINUES TO DISCHARGE
WHILE YOUR NOTEBOOK IS IN SLEEP MODE, THOUGH NOT AS FAST AS WHEN FULLY OPERATIONAL.
■
DISABLING THE POWER/SUSPEND/RESUME BUTTON PREVENTS IT FROM BEING USED TO PUT THE NOTEBOOK INTO
SLEEP OR HIBERNATION (SAVE-TO-DISK) MODE. THE BUTTON RESUME FUNCTION CAN’T BE DISABLED.
■
THE SLEEP OR HIBERNATION (SAVE-TO-DISK) MODE SHOULD NOT BE USED WITH CERTAIN PC CARDS. CHECK
YOUR PC CARD DOCUMENTATION FOR MORE INFORMATION. WHEN PC CARDS OR EXTERNAL DEVICES ARE IN
USE, HIBERNATION (SAVE-TO-DISK) MODE CANNOT RETURN TO THE EXACT STATE PRIOR TO SUSPENSION,
BECAUSE ALL OF THE PERIPHERAL DEVICES WILL BE RE-INITIALIZED WHEN THE SYSTEM RESTARTS.
■
IF YOUR NOTEBOOK IS ACTIVELY ACCESSING INFORMATION WHEN YOU ENTER THE SLEEP OR HIBERNATION MODE,
CHANGES TO OPEN FILES ARE NOT LOST. THE FILES ARE LEFT OPEN AND MEMORY IS KEPT ACTIVE DURING SLEEP
MODE OR THE MEMORY IS TRANSFERRED TO THE INTERNAL HARD DRIVE DURING HIBERNATION MODE.
THE MAIN ADVANTAGE OF USING HIBERNATION (SAVE-TO-DISK) IS THAT POWER IS NOT REQUIRED TO MAINTAIN
YOUR DATA. THIS IS PARTICULARLY IMPORTANT IF YOU WILL BE LEAVING YOUR NOTEBOOK IN A SUSPENDED STATE
FOR A PROLONGED PERIOD OF TIME. THE DRAWBACK OF USING HIBERNATION MODE IS THAT IT LENGTHENS THE
POWER DOWN AND POWER UP SEQUENCES AND RESETS PERIPHERAL DEVICES.
Hibernation (Save-to-Disk) Feature
The Hibernation feature saves the contents of your notebook’s system memory to the hard drive as a part
of the Power/Suspend/Resume mode. You can enable or disable this feature.
46 - Power Management
Enable or Disable the Hibernation Feature
The default settings are not enabled. To enable or disable the Hibernation feature, follow these steps:
1
2
From the Start menu, select Control Panel > Power Options.
Select Choose what the power button does or Choose what closing the lid does, then make your selection
(Do Nothing, Sleep, Hibernate, or Shut Down).
Windows Power Management
The Power Options icon in the Windows Control Panel allows you to configure some of the power
management settings. For example, you can use Power Options to set the timeout values for turning off
the display and hard disks whether you are running the notebook on battery or one of the adapters.
Restarting the System
If your system is on and you need to restart it, be sure that you use the following procedure.
1
Click the [Start] button, and then move the mouse over the small arrow at the bottom right of the right-hand
pane.
2
Select Restart from the list.
TURNING OFF YOUR LIFEBOOK NOTEBOOK WITHOUT EXITING WINDOWS OR TURNING ON YOUR
NOTEBOOK WITHIN 10 SECONDS OF THE NOTEBOOK BEING SHUT OFF MAY CAUSE AN ERROR WHEN
YOU START THE NEXT TIME.
47 - Power Management
Powering Off
Before turning off the power, check that the hard drive/optical drive access indicator is off. If you turn off
the power while accessing a disk there is a risk of data loss. To ensure that your notebook shuts down
without error, use the Windows shut down procedure.
BE SURE TO CLOSE ALL FILES AND EXIT ALL APPLICATIONS PRIOR TO TURNING OFF THE POWER. IF
FILES ARE OPEN WHEN YOU TURN THE POWER OFF, YOU WILL LOSE ANY CHANGES THAT HAVE NOT
BEEN SAVED, AND MAY CAUSE DISK ERRORS.
Using the correct procedure to shut down from Windows allows your notebook to complete its operations
and turn off power in the proper sequence to avoid errors. The proper sequence is:
Click the [Start] button, and then move the mouse over the small arrow at the bottom right of the righthand pane. Select Shut Down from the list.
ENERGY STAR® Compliance
Your Fujitsu system is an ENERGY STAR® qualified mobile PC. By choosing a computer
with the latest energy-saving technology, you’re helping to preserve our environment for
future generations.
ENERGY STAR is a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, U.S.
Department of Energy, Natural Resources Canada, and other governments around the world
helping us save money while protecting the environment through energy efficient products
and practices. With energy costs and global warming top-of-mind for consumers, Fujitsu is committed to
offering solutions that help consumers conserve energy and improve the quality of our environment.
Sleep Mode:
You will notice that your computer is initially set so that the display turns off after 15 minutes of user
inactivity, and the computer goes into Sleep mode after 20 minutes of user inactivity. When going into
Sleep mode, the computer also reduces the speed of any active Ethernet network links. To “wake” the
computer from Sleep mode, press the Suspend/Resume Button.
48 - Power Management
Energy saving benefits:
Fujitsu ENERGY STAR qualified mobile PCs use about half as much electricity as standard equipment –
saving half in utility costs. But more than that, ENERGY STAR also makes a difference for the
environment. Did you know that the average house can be responsible for twice the greenhouse gas
emissions as the average car? That’s because every time you flip on a light switch, run your dishwasher,
or turn on your PC, you use energy, which means more greenhouse gas emissions from power plants. So
the more energy we can save through energy efficiency, the more we help to reduce greenhouse gases and
the risks of global warming.

User-Installable Features
Lithium ion Battery
Your LifeBook notebook has a Lithium ion battery that provides power for operating your notebook when
no external power source is available. The battery is durable and long lasting, but should not be exposed
to extreme temperatures, high voltages, chemicals or other hazards.
The Lithium ion battery operating time may become shorter if it is used under the following conditions:
• When used at temperatures that exceed a low of 5°C or a high of 35°C. Extreme temperatures not
only reduce charging efficiency, but can also cause battery deterioration. The Charging icon on the
Status Indicator panel will flash when you try to charge a battery that is outside its operating
temperature range. See “Status Indicator Panel” on page 20.
• When using a high current device such as a modem, Multi-Format DVD Writer, CD-ROM drive,
optical drive, or the hard drive, using the AC adapter will conserve your battery life.
DO NOT LEAVE A FAULTY BATTERY IN YOUR NOTEBOOK. IT MAY DAMAGE YOUR AC ADAPTER, OPTIONAL
AUTO/AIRLINE ADAPTER, ANOTHER BATTERY OR YOUR NOTEBOOK ITSELF. IT MAY ALSO PREVENT
OPERATION OF YOUR NOTEBOOK BY DRAINING ALL AVAILABLE CURRENT INTO THE BAD BATTERY.
50
• ACTUAL BATTERY LIFE WILL VARY BASED ON SCREEN BRIGHTNESS, APPLICATIONS, FEATURES, POWER
MANAGEMENT SETTINGS, BATTERY CONDITION AND OTHER CUSTOMER PREFERENCES.
CD-ROM
MULTI-FORMAT DVD WRITER, OR HARD DRIVE USAGE MAY ALSO HAVE A SIGNIFICANT IMPACT
ON BATTERY LIFE. THE BATTERY CHARGING CAPACITY IS REDUCED AS THE BATTERY AGES. IF YOUR
BATTERY IS RUNNING LOW QUICKLY, YOU SHOULD REPLACE IT WITH A NEW ONE.

• UNDER FEDERAL, STATE, OR LOCAL LAW IT MAY BE ILLEGAL TO DISPOSE OF BATTERIES BY PUTTING
THEM IN THE TRASH.
PLEASE TAKE CARE OF OUR ENVIRONMENT AND DISPOSE OF BATTERIES
PROPERLY. CHECK WITH YOUR LOCAL GOVERNMENT AUTHORITY FOR DETAILS REGARDING RECYCLING
OR DISPOSING OF OLD BATTERIES. IF YOU CANNOT FIND THIS INFORMATION ELSEWHERE, CONTACT
YOUR SUPPORT REPRESENTATIVE AT
1-800-8FUJITSU (1-800-838-5487)
Recharging the Batteries
If you want to know the condition of the primary Lithium ion battery, check the Battery Level indicator
located on the Status Indicator panel. The indicator changes as the battery level changes.
The Lithium ion battery is recharged internally using the AC adapter or Auto/Airline adapter. To recharge
the battery make sure the battery that needs to be charged is installed in your LifeBook notebook and
connect the AC or Auto/Airline adapter.
MAKE SURE THAT THE BATTERY CHARGING INDICATOR AND THE PERCENTAGE CHARGE IS DISPLAYED
BY THE BATTERY LEVEL INDICATOR ON THE STATUS INDICATOR PANEL.
There is no memory effect on the Lithium ion battery therefore you do not need to discharge the battery
completely before recharging. The charge times will be significantly longer if your notebook is in use
while the battery is charging. If you want to charge the battery more quickly, put your notebook into
Standby mode, or turn it off while the adapter is charging the battery. (See Power Management on page
45 for more information on Standby mode and shutdown procedure)
51 - Lithium ion Battery
USING HEAVY CURRENT DEVICES SUCH AS THE MODEM OR FREQUENT DVD/CD-RW/CD-ROM
ACCESSES MAY PREVENT CHARGING COMPLETELY.
Low Battery State
When the battery is running low, a low battery notification message will appear. If you do not respond to
the low battery message, the batteries will continue to discharge until they are too low to operate. When
this happens, your notebook will go into Standby mode. There is no guarantee that your data will be saved
once the notebook reaches this point.
■
ONCE THE LOW BATTERY NOTIFICATION MESSAGE APPEARS, YOU NEED TO SAVE ALL YOUR ACTIVE DATA AND PUT
STANDBY MODE UNTIL YOU CAN PROVIDE A NEW POWER SOURCE. YOU SHOULD
PROVIDE A CHARGED BATTERY, AN AC POWER ADAPTER, OR AUTO/AIRLINE ADAPTER AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

Once your notebook goes into Dead Battery Suspend mode you will be unable to resume operation until
you provide a source of power either from an adapter, or a charged battery. Once you have provided power,
you will need to press the Power/Suspend/Resume button to resume operation.
In the Dead Battery Suspend mode, your data can be maintained for some time, but if a power source is
not provided promptly, the Power indicator will stop flashing and go out, meaning that you have lost the
data that was not stored. Once you provide power, you can continue to use your notebook while an adapter
is charging the battery.
Shorted Batteries
The Status Indicator panel uses an LED below the battery outline of the Battery Level indicator to display
the operating level available in that battery. If this display shows a Shorted Battery, it means the battery is
damaged and must be replaced so it does not damage other parts of your LifeBook notebook.
52 - Lithium ion Battery
Replacing the Battery
With the purchase of an additional battery, you can have a fully charged spare to swap with one that is not
charged. There are two ways to swap batteries, cold-swapping and hot-swapping:

Problem
Possible Cause
Possible Solutions
The application display
uses only a portion of your
screen and is surrounded
by a dark frame.
You are running an
application that does
not support the system’s native pixel resolution and display
compression is
enabled.
Display compression gives a clearer but smaller display for applications that do not support the system’s native pixel resolution.
You can fill the screen but have less resolution by changing display compression settings. These settings can be changed in the
Intel GMA control panel.
The Display is dark when
on battery power.
The Power Management utility default is set
on low brightness to
conserve power.
Press [Fn] + [F7] to increase brightness or double-click on the battery gauge and adjust Power Control under battery settings.
You have connected an
external monitor and it does
not display any information.
Your external monitor is
not properly installed.
Reinstall your device. See “External Video Port” on page 76.
Your operating system
is not setup with the
correct software driver
for that device.
Check your device and operating system documentation and activate the proper driver.
Your external monitor is
not compatible with your
LifeBook notebook.
See your monitor documentation and the External Monitor Support portions of the Specifications section. See “Specifications” on
page 108.
Application software
often has its own set of
error message displays.
See your application manual and help displays screens for more
information. Not all messages are errors some may simply be status.

example, 1.160.10.240 could be an IP address.
Within an isolated network, you can assign IP addresses at random as long as each one is unique.
However, connecting a private network to the Internet requires using registered IP addresses (called
Internet addresses) to avoid duplicates.
The four numbers in an IP address are used in different ways to identify a particular network and a
host on that network. Three regional Internet registries -- ARIN, RIPE NCC and APNIC -- assign
Internet addresses from the following three classes.
Class A - supports 16 million hosts on each of 126 networks
Class B - supports 65,000 hosts on each of 16,000 networks
Class C - supports 254 hosts on each of 2 million networks

FCC Regulatory Information
Please note the following regulatory information related to the optional wireless LAN device.
Regulatory Notes and Statements
Wireless LAN, Health and Authorization for use
Radio frequency electromagnetic energy is emitted from Wireless LAN devices. The energy levels of these emissions, however,
are far much less than the electromagnetic energy emissions from wireless devices such as mobile phones. Wireless LAN
devices are safe for use by consumers because they operate within the guidelines found in radio frequency safety standards and
recommendations. The use of Wireless LAN devices may be restricted in some situations or environments, such as:
• On board an airplane, or
• In an explosive environment, or

Wireless LAN Modes Using this Device
Ad Hoc Mode
“Ad Hoc Mode” refers to a wireless network architecture where wireless network connectivity between
multiple computers is established without a central wireless network device, typically known as Access
Point(s). Connectivity is accomplished using only client devices in a peer-to-peer fashion. That is why Ad
Hoc networks are also known as peer-to-peer networks. Ad Hoc networks are an easy and inexpensive
method for establishing network connectivity between multiple computers.
Ad Hoc mode requires that the SSID (service set identifier), network authentication, and encryption key
settings are identically configured on all computers in the Ad Hoc network.
Ad Hoc Mode Network
142 - Before Using the Wireless LAN
Access Point (Infrastructure) Mode
Infrastructure mode refers to a wireless network architecture in which devices communicate with wireless
or wired network devices by communicating through an Access Point. In infrastructure mode, wireless
devices can communicate with each other or with a wired network. Corporate wireless networks operate
in infrastructure mode because they require access to the wired LAN in order to access computers,
devices, and services such as file servers, printers, and databases.

How to Handle This Device
The WLAN device is an optional device that may come pre-installed in your mobile computer. Under
normal circumstances, it should not be necessary for you to remove or re-install it. The Operating System
that your mobile computer comes with has been pre-configured to support the WLAN device.
Wireless Network Considerations
• The WLAN device supports IEEE802.11a, IEEE802.11b, IEEE802.11g, and IEEE802.11n (draft).
• The WLAN device operates in the 2.4 GHz ISM band and the 5 GHz lower, middle, and upper UNII bands.
• Microwave ovens may interfere with the operation of WLAN devices since they operate in the same 2.4 GHz
frequency range as IEEE802.11b/g/draft-n devices. Interference by microwaves does not occur with
IEEE802.11a radio which operates in the 5 GHz RF band.
• Wireless devices that transmit in the 2.4 GHz range may interfere with operation of WLAN devices in
IEEE802.11b/g/n modes. Symptoms of interference include reduced throughput, intermittent disconnects,
and many frame errors. It is HIGHLY recommended that these interfering devices be powered off to ensure
proper operation of the WLAN device.
Deactivating the WLAN Device
Disconnecting the WLAN device may be desired in certain circumstances (to extend battery life) or where
certain environments require it (i.e., hospitals, clinics, airplanes, etc.). The WLAN device can be
deactivated by using the Wireless On/Off Switch, and it can be disconnected in Windows using the WLAN
icon in the system tray (Note that disconnecting via the icon in the system tray does not turn off the radio;
it continues to transmit and receive even though it’s not connected.).
