Things you must remember before working on your
computer
Let your computer acclimate itself
Your notebook can easily stand temperature extremes but it
doesn’t like rapid changes in temperature, like going from the cold
outdoors to a warm office.
Rapid changes in temperature can cause water droplets to
condense inside your case, threatening to damage the electronic
parts inside.
After receiving your notebook when it’s hot or cold outside, try not
to power up the computer immediately, let the computer adjust to
the room temperature gradually at least for three to four hours.
If your system arrives in cold
weather, do not apply power to the computer or monitor until
they have been allowed to come to room temperature.
Heat, Cold, Humidity, and Glare
Find a suitable place for your computer that’s not too hot, too cold,
too dark, or too bright. Glare can make it hard to read the screen.
• Try to avoid the computer components from being destroyed if
it is over heated, so try to allow plenty of room for air to
circulate around the case.
• Do not block the ventilation opening.
• Do not place your computer in direct sunlight.
8
Suitable place to work
Your computer will run well wherever you’re comfortable but
extremes of temperature and humidity can be challenging to your
system’s parts. There are some things you can tolerate that the
computer can’t – things like static electricity, dust, water, steam
and oil. In case you decide to pull over for roadside computing, try
to choose a clean, comfortable work area for your system.
A lithium-ion battery pack will be available when you are traveling.
If you are running your system for the first time on battery power,
remove the battery from the package, install it into the system and
recharge the battery to fully prepare for service.

Getting Started
Connecting to a Power Source
Connecting the AC Adapter
A universal AC adapter is provided to supply your computer with
power and also charge the computer’s battery pack. The adapter’s
AC input voltage can range anywhere from 100 to 240 volts,
covering the standard voltages available in almost every country.
To connect the computer to an external power source:
Do not use inferior extension
cords as this may result in damage to your Notebook. The
Notebook comes with its own AC adapter. Do not use a
different adapter to power the computer and other electrical
devices.
17
Whenever possible, keep the AC adapter plugged into the
Notebook and an electrical outlet to recharge the battery.
Never turn off or reset your
Notebook while the hard disk is in use and the CD-ROM status
icon is lit; doing so can result in loss or destruction of your
data. Always wait at least 5 seconds after turning off your
Notebook before turning it back on; turning the power on and
off in rapid succession can damage the Notebook’s electrical
circuitry.
Turning On Your Notebook Computer
Turn on your Notebook by pressing the power button. Hold the
button down for a second or two and release. The Power-On Self
Test (POST) runs automatically.
After the POST is completed, the computer reads the operating
system from the hard disk drive into computer memory (this is
commonly referred to as “booting” a computer). If your OS
(Operating System such as Windows Vista…. etc) is installed, it
should start automatically.
To turn the Notebook off, save your work and close all open
applications, click on Start, then Shut Down and select Shut
down the computer and click "Yes" or press the power button for
4-6 seconds.
Operating on Battery Power
Your computer comes with a rechargeable battery pack that lets
you operate the computer without an external power source.
When the battery pack is fully charged, you can operate the
computer under the following conditions:
•
•
•
The battery pack initially has a full charge.
No peripheral devices are installed.
The disk/CD-ROM drives run no more than 10% of the time.
Only use batteries that are
approved by an authorized dealer. All batteries are not the
same and therefore should not be treated as such. Using the
wrong battery could cause serious damage to your computer
and yourself through toxic emissions.
18
Danger of explosion if battery is
incorrectly replaced. Replace only with same or equivalent
type recommended by the manufacturer. Discard used
batteries according to the manufacturer’s instructions or local

Power Saving Modes
This section contains information on the Notebook’s power system,
including the AC Adapter, the battery system, recharging the
battery, and tips for conserving battery power.
The power system is comprised of two parts, the AC Adapter and
the battery system. The AC Adapter converts AC power from a wall
outlet to the DC power required by the computer.
The Battery Power System
Before using the computer on battery power for the first time,
check the battery status icon on the Windows Toolbar to make
sure the battery is fully charged.
See Battery Status later in this section for a description and
explanation of the Windows Battery icon.
Charging the battery takes about 3.5 hours to charge when the
system is in off state. If possible, always charge the battery
completely.
If you use the battery so frequently that it
exceed more than 20 times by fully discharging/charging in a
single month alone, we recommend you to perform the
“Battery Calibration” process every 3 months to maintain the
battery life.
Please refer to the topic on “Battery Calibration” describing
how to calibrate your system battery discussed on the latter
part of this chapter.
If you discover the battery life is getting shorter, please
perform the “Battery Calibration” process immediately.
Removing the Battery Pack
To remove the battery pack from its compartment, please refer to
Chapter 3, Inserting and Removing the Battery Pack.
Preparing the Battery Pack for Use (Battery Calibration)
Before using the battery pack for the first time, the Smart Battery
IC within the battery pack should be calibrated in order to get
accurate reporting of remaining battery life status.
To calibrate the battery pack follows the instructions below:
24
Insert the battery into the battery compartment and turn on the
Notebook. If the battery is completely without power go to the
next step. Otherwise, let the battery run down until the battery
low-low warning beeps are heard. The system will
automatically enter Suspend mode.
2. Turn the Notebook off. Connect the AC adapter and let the
battery fully recharge. When the battery charge indicator turns
off, the battery is fully charged.
3. Turn On the notebook, let the battery run down until the
battery is in low-low state and you hear a warning beeps. The
system will automatically enter the Hibernate mode. You can
now connect the AC adapter.
4. The battery pack is now calibrated properly.
In general, using the battery until the low-low battery-warning
indicator appears and fully recharges the battery each time (full
discharge/charge cycle) will ensure the accurate reporting of the
battery gauge status.
1.
Automatic Battery Pack Charging Function
To charge the battery, while the battery pack is in the notebook,
plug the AC adapter into the notebook and an electrical outlet.
The charging time is approximately 3.5 hours when the notebook is
turned off and approximately 6 hours when the notebook is turned
on.
When the battery is fully charged, the battery charge indicator
becomes off.
If system runs at heavy loading or in a
high temperature environment, the battery may not be fully
charged. You need to continue to charge it with the AC
adapter plugged in until the charging LED turns off.
Battery Status
Windows Vista has an applet in the Control Panel that will display
an icon in the Windows taskbar indicating when the Notebook is
running on battery power or is attached to the AC adapter.
This applet also displays a meter that indicates how much charge
is remaining in the battery.
25
Battery Low Warning
When the pack initially reaches the “Battery Low” state
approximately 7 ~ 10 minutes of the usable battery life is left.
You will hear an audible beep signal every 16 seconds alerting you
to the “Battery Low” status. When the battery power reaches the
“Battery Low Low” status the beeping sound will accelerate.
Your battery now has 1 ~ 2 minutes of battery charge remaining.
You must save your data or connect AC power immediately;
otherwise, you may lose your data.
When there is only one minute of battery charge remaining, the
Notebook will suspend to the HDD and power off. You should
connect AC power and resume to save your work.
Small Battery for the Real Time Clock
There is a small built-in battery pack that supplies power to the
system in order to maintain certain system information while the
power is off.
If the Notebook is left without a power source for long period of
time, this battery will be exhausted and system information will be
lost.
Danger of explosion if battery is
incorrectly replaced. Replace only with the same or equivalent
type recommended by the manufacturer. Dispose of used
batteries according to the manufacturer's instructions. Never
remove the battery pack while the power is on as this may
result in data loss when the system loses power.
Resetting the System
After installing a software application package, you may be
prompted to reset the system to load the changed operating
environment.
To reset the system, or “reboot,” press the [Ctrl]+[Alt]+[Delete]
keys simultaneously. This is known as “warm boot.” This key
combination acts as “software” reset switch when you encounter
hardware or software problems, which lock up the Notebook.
26
If this key combination does not shut down the Notebook, you can
reset the Notebook by using the Notebook’s power button. Should
the Notebook lock up for some reason, pressing this button powers
the Notebook off.

Running BIOS Setup
The Setup Utility is a hardware configuration program built into
your computer’s BIOS (Basic Input/Output System). It runs and
maintains a variety of hardware functions. It is menu-driven
software, which allows you to easily configure and change the
settings.
The BIOS contains manufacture’s default settings for the
computer’s standard operations. However, there are occasions
when you may be required to modify the default settings in the
BIOS.
The BIOS allows you to set up passwords to limit access to users.
This is an important feature because a great deal of vital
information is carried within the computer nowadays. Unauthorized
access can be prevented. Later in this chapter, you will learn how
to use this security feature.

Troubleshooting
Your computer has been fully tested and complies with the system
specifications before shipping. However, incorrect operations
and/or mishandling may cause problems.
This chapter provides a reference for identifying and correcting
common hardware and software problems that you may encounter.
When you encounter a problem, you should first try to go through
the recommendations in this chapter. Instead of returning the
computer and waiting for repair, you may easily solve the problems
by considering the following scenarios and possible solutions. If
the error continues, contact your reseller for service information.
Before taking further actions, consider the following suggestions:
• Check to see if the problem persists when all the external
devices are removed.
• Check to see that the green light indicator on the AC adapter is
lit.
• Check to see the power cord is properly plugged to the wall
outlet and to the computer.
• Check to see the power indicator of the computer is on.
• Check to see if your keyboard is operational by pressing and
holding any key.
• Check for any incorrect or loose cable connections. Make sure
the latches on the connectors latch securely on to the receptor
end.
• Be sure you have not performed an incorrect setting on the
hardware devices in the BIOS Setup utility. A faulty setting may
cause the system to misbehave. If you are not sure of the
changes you made, try to restore all the settings to factory
defaults.
