pick up the shattered pieces wearing protective gloves and
send them to your service centre for professional disposal.
Finally, wash your hands with soap, as the pieces may have
been contaminated with chemicals.
• Do not fold the display back by an angle of more than
120°. Exceeding this value may damage the housing or the
notebook. Always hold the display firmly by the middle when
folding it back, adjusting the position and closing it. Failure to
do so may damage the display. Never use force to open the
display.
• In order to avoid any damage to the device, ensure that the
plug contacts do not come into contact with water under any
circumstances. If this should occur, it is imperative that the plug
contacts are dried thoroughly before the device is used again.
7
• To avoid damaging the screen, do not touch it with fingers or
sharp objects.
• Never lift the notebook up by the display as this could break
the hinges.
• Over time, dust can collect inside the notebook which then
blocks the vents. This can lead to an increase in the fan speed
and, therefore, also increase the operating volume of your
notebook. It can also lead to overheating and malfunctions.
• Should the below occur, switch the notebook off immediately/
do not switch the notebook on, disconnect the mains plug and
contact customer services if
−− the AC adapter or the attached power cable or plug is
burnt or damaged. Replace faulty mains cables/mains
adaptors only with original parts. These parts should not
be repaired under any circumstances.
−− the notebook housing is damaged or liquid has penetrated
into the device. Have the notebook inspected by customer
services. Otherwise, it may not be possible to operate the
notebook safely. There may be a risk of electric shock and/
or harmful laser radiation!
4.3. Never carry out repairs yourself
CAUTION!
Risk of electric shock!
There is a risk of electric shock if repairs are not carried
out by qualified personnel!
`` Never try to open or repair the product yourself!
`` In the event of a fault, please contact the Service
Centre or an approved repair specialist.
8
4.4. Data backup
PLEASE NOTE!
Loss of data!
Back up your data to external storage media before
each update. We do not accept any liability for claims
for compensation arising from loss of data or any
consequential loss or damage.
4.5. Setup Location
• Keep your notebook and all connected devices away
from moisture and avoid dust, heat and direct sunlight.
Non-compliance with these instructions can lead to faults or
damage to the notebook.
• Do not use the notebook outdoors because external elements,
such as rain, snow, etc., could damage it.
• Set up and operate all components on a stable, level and
vibration-free surface to prevent the notebook from falling
down.
• Do not operate the notebook or power adaptor for long
periods on your lap or any other body part as the heat
dissipation on the underside can result in uncomfortable
overheating.
• This device is not suitable for use with VDU workstations.
9
4.6. Environmental Requirements
• The notebook is most reliably operated at an ambient
temperature between 5 °C (+41 °F) and 30 °C (+86 °F) and
at a relative humidity between 20% and 80% (without
condensation).
• When powered off, the notebook can be stored at
temperatures between 0 °C and 60 °C (+32 °F and 140 °F).
• During a thunderstorm, unplug the AC adapter from the wall
outlet. For extra safety, we recommend using an overvoltage
protection device to prevent the notebook from sustaining
damage as a result of power surges or lightning strikes.
• After transporting the notebook, wait until the device has
reached room temperature before switching it on. Large
changes in temperature or fluctuations in humidity can cause
moisture build up within the notebook due to condensation.
This can cause an electrical short circuit.
• Keep the original packaging in the event the device needs to
be sent in for repairs.
10
4.7. Ergonomics
PLEASE NOTE!
Avoid dazzle, reflections and a light-dark contrast that
is too strong in order to protect your eyes.
The notebook should never be placed next to a window because
this is the brightest part of the room in daylight. This brightness
can make it more difficult for the eyes to adjust to the darker
display. The notebook should always be positioned so that the
direction of vision is parallel to the window front.
Setting up the notebook with your back to the window is
incorrect as reflections from the bright window on the screen
will then be unavoidable. A position looking onto the window is
also incorrect as the contrast between the dark screen and the
bright daylight can cause problems for the eyes to adjust and
result in problems.
The parallel line of vision should also be maintained in relation
to artificial lighting equipment.
In other words, the same criteria and principles apply where
the workspace is illuminated with artificial light. Where space
restrictions make it impossible to set up the screen as described,
then correct positioning (rotating, tilting) of the notebook/
screen can prevent dazzling, reflections and excessive brightdark contrast, etc. In many cases, an improvement can also
be achieved by using slats or vertical blinds on the windows,
partition walls or by changing the artificial lighting equipment.
11
4.8. Connecting

28
10. Sound System
Your notebook comes with a high-definition audio system with 2 speakers (Dolby*).
Personal settings can be configured via the Dolby menu under the loudspeaker
properties. This ensures optimum support for all current programs and games.
10.1.External Audio Connections
Your Notebook has an integrated stereo speaker so you can always reproduce
sound without additional devices. Using the external connections provides you
with an ideal opportunity to connect your Notebook to external devices.
The Fn+F5 and Fn+F6 keyboard shortcut enables you to adjust the volume.
WARNING!
Impairment to hearing!
Listening through earphones or headphones at
excessive volume levels, as well as changes to the basic

`` Start playback and increase the volume to a
comfortable level.
11. Network Operation
11.1.Network Connection
Connect one end of a cable with a RJ45 connection (western jack) to your
Notebook’s network interface and the other to a different computer or hub/switch.
You can find more details about the network in the Windows® help.
11.2.Wi-Fi (Wireless Network)
This function enables you to establish a network connection to a corresponding
remote station. Please read about the necessary requirements. The Wi-Fi function is
enabled and disabled via the Windows® menu and is activated by default.
*Dolby is a registered trademark of Dolby Laboratories
29
PLEASE NOTE!
Do not operate the Wi-Fi function in locations (e.g.:
hospitals, airplanes, etc.) where there is sensitive
equipment. Do not switch the device unless you are
sure it will cause no interference.
11.2.1. Requirements
A so called Wi-Fi access point may be used as a remote station. A Wi-Fi access point
is a radio transmitting device that communicates with your Notebook and controls
access to the connected network.
Wi-Fi access points are frequently found in large offices, airports, train stations,
universities or Internet cafés. They provide access to particular services and
networks or to the Internet.
Access permissions are generally necessary and often result in usage charges.
Access points often have built-in DSL modems. These so called routers establish the
connection to the existing DSL Internet connection and the Wi-Fi.
A connection can also be established to another end device with Wi-Fi functionality
without an access point. Without a router, however, the network is restricted to those
devices directly connected to it.
If encryption is used for the transfer, the same procedure must be used for all devices.
Encryption is a procedure to protect the network from unauthorised access.
The transfer speed can vary depending on the distance and the number of users
accessing the remote station.
11.3.Bluetooth
Bluetooth technology is used to wirelessly bridge short distances. Bluetooth devices
transfer data via radio so that computers, mobile phones, printers, keyboards, mice
and other devices can communicate with one another wirelessly. Bluetooth wireless
technology has numerous possible applications. A few of them are listed below:
• Creating a wireless Internet connection using a mobile phone.
• Transferring files between computers or between a computer and another device.
• Printing using a Bluetooth printer.
• Using a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse.
• Connecting to a PAN (Personal Area Network).
The Bluetooth wireless technology data transfer speed can vary depending on the
device or environmental factors. Data can be transferred through walls, jacket pockets
and briefcases using a Bluetooth device. The transfer between Bluetooth devices occurs
at the high frequency of 2.4 Gigahertz (GHz).
30
PLEASE NOTE!
Do not operate the Bluetooth function in locations
(e.g.: hospitals, aeroplanes, etc.) where there is sensitive
equipment. Do not switch the device unless you are
sure it will cause no interference.
11.4.Airplane Mode
In flight mode, all wireless connections (e.g. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth) are disabled. The airplane
mode is disabled by default to ensure that all wireless connections are available. By
using the key combination Fn +
you can switch the airplane mode on or off.
12. Multi Card Reader
Memory cards are media that are used, e.g. in the field of digital photography. The
shape and capacity of a memory card can vary depending on the manufacturer.
You can use the following types of memory card:
• SD, SDHC, SDXC
PLEASE NOTE!
Risk of damage!
Incorrectly inserting the memory card may damage the
device.
`` Slide the memory card into the card slot and make
sure that the contacts face upwards.
12.1.Inserting a Memory Card
`` Slide the memory card in as far as it will go.
12.2.Removing Memory Cards
`` To remove memory cards, first push these into the socket to release the safety
catch.
`` Now pull the card out of the slot and store it properly.
31
13. USB Port
The universal serial bus is a standard for connecting input devices, scanners and
other peripherals. The USB 3.0 ports are fully backwards compatible.
Your Notebook has 2 USB 3.1 ports (type C) and 3 USB 3.0 ports (type A).
PLEASE NOTE!
Due to the arrangement of the contacts, the plug will
only fit into the socket in one position (exception USB
type C). Ensure that the plug and the port fit together
precisely in order to avoid any damage to the contacts.
Where possible, always connect your USB devices to
the same port that they were originally installed on.
Otherwise they will be assigned a new ID and the
drivers will need to be reinstalled.
14. Securing Your Notebook
14.1.Password Setting (Power-on)
You can protect your notebook against unauthorised use with a power-on
password. On switching on the notebook, a password prompt will appear on the
screen. The password is set up in the UEFI configuration.
PLEASE NOTE!
Keep your password in a safe place. If you forget
your password, you have no way of deleting it. If this
happens, contact your service centre.
You can also use the Windows® security options to protect your data against
unauthorised access.
14.2.Kensington Security Lock
you can use a so called Kensington security lock to protect your notebook against
theft. This security lock (complete with cable) is usually available as an accessory in
specialist retailers.
To attach the security lock, wind the cable around a stationery object, e.g. a table
leg. Plug the lock into the Kensington device and turn the key to lock it. Keep the
key in a safe place.
32
15. Resetting the notebook to its Factory
Settings
Depending on the features of your notebook, use either Cyberlink PowerRecover or
the Windows system recovery options if your system fails to respond as normal and
a system recovery becomes necessary.
15.1.System recovery with PowerRecover (optional)

21. European EN ISO 9241-307 Class II Standard
Due to the very high number of transistors and the associated extremely complex
manufacturing processes used, occasionally one or more pixels can fail or become
incorrectly controlled.
In the past, there were a number of approaches for defining the permitted number
of pixel defects. However, these approaches were mostly very complicated and
varied from one manufacturer to the next. When handling warranty issues for all
of its display products, MEDION therefore adheres to the strict and transparent
requirements of the standard EN ISO 9241-307, Class II; which has been briefly
summarised below.
The EN ISO 9241-307 standard defines, amongst other things, the generally
applicable guidelines relating to pixel defects. Pixel defects are categorised into
four fault classes and three defect types. Every individual pixel consists of three subpixels, each of which is assigned a basic colour (red, green, blue).
Pixel structure
5 Pixel
5 Pixel
Rows
Pixel
blue
green
Sub-Pixel
red
Pixel defect types:
• Type 1:
permanently illuminated pixel (bright, white dot) even when not activated. A
white pixel occurs due to the illumination of all three sub-pixels.
• Type 2:
non-illuminated pixel (dark, black dot) even when activated.
• Type 3:
abnormal or faulty red, green or blue sub-pixel (e.g. permanently illuminated at
half brightness, one colour not illuminated, flashing or flickering but not type 1
or 2)
Supplement: Type 3 cluster (= failure of two or more sub-pixels within a 5 x 5 pixel
block). A cluster is a field of 5 x 5 pixels (15 x 5 sub-pixels).
