Information on LCD screen
Notes:
LCDscreen:
High-quality TFT displays with especially bright background lighting are installed in
notebooks from Fujitsu Siemens Computers GmbH. For technical reasons, TFT monitors
are manufactured for a specific resolution. An optimal, clear picture can only be ensured
in the resolution intended for the particular TFT monitor. A monitor resolution which
differs from the specification can result in an unclear picture.
The monitor resolution is understood to be the number of horizontal and vertical pixels (i.e. picture
elements) which make up the monitor display. For example, "UXGA" stands for 1600 x 1200
pixels. Each pixel consists of three so-called subpixels of the colours red, green and blue.
As a result, a UXGA monitor consists of 1600 x 1200 x 3 = 5.760.000 subpixels.

Using your notebook
Permanently unlit or lit pixels
The standard of production techniques today cannot guarantee an absolutely fault-free screen
display. A few isolated constant lit or unlit pixels may be present. The maximum permitted number
of pixels faults is stipulated in the strict international standard ISO 13406-2 (Class II).
Example:
A 15" LCD screen monitor with a resolution of 1024 x 768 has 1024 x 768 = 786432 pixels. Each
pixel consists of three subpixels (red, green and blue), so there are almost 2.4 million subpixels in
total. According to ISO 13406-2 (Class II), a maximum of 4 pixels and 5 subpixels may be defective,
i.e. a total of 17 defective subpixels. That is approx. 0.0007 % of the entire set of subpixels!
Pixel
A pixel consists of 3 subpixels, normally red, green and blue. A pixel is
the smallest element that can be generated by complete functionality
of the display.
A subpixel is a separately addressable internal structure within a pixel
Subpixel
that enhances the pixel function.
Cluster (= group of faults) A cluster contains two or more defective pixels or subpixels in a 5 x 5
pixel block.
Background lighting
TFT monitors are operated with background lighting. The luminosity of the background
lighting can decrease during the period of use of the notebook. However, you can
set the brightness of your monitor individually.

SmartCard reader (device-dependent)
Securityfunctions
Securityfunctions,
SmartCards are not supplied as standard equipment. You can use all SmartCards that comply with
the ISO standard 7816-1, -2 or -3. These SmartCards are available from various manufacturers.
With the appropriate software you can use your SmartCard as an alternative to password protection,
but also as a digital signature, for encrypting your e-mails or for home banking.
We recommend that you always use two SmartCards. Always keep one of the SmartCards
in a safe place if you are carrying the other SmartCard with you.
In order to take advantage of all of the security features of your notebook, you will
need a CardOS SmartCard from Fujitsu Siemens Computers.
The SmartCard can only be used with a PIN, offering maximum protection even if
you lose the SmartCard. In order to maximise your security, the CardOS SmartCard
is disabled if three incorrect attempts are made to enter the PIN.
When you use the CardOS SmartCard for the first time, you will either need to enter the
preset PIN "12345678" or the PIN given to you by your systems administrator.
Inserting the SmartCard
Do not use force when inserting and removing the SmartCard.
Make sure that foreign objects do not fall into the SmartCard reader.
► Slide the SmartCard into the SmartCard
reader with the chip facing upwards (on
some variants it faces down) and to the front.

SmartCard as software protection (SmartCase™ Logon+)
Together with a CardOS SmartCard, software like SmartCase™ Logon+ gives you the
option of logging on with the SmartCard and entering your PIN. If the PIN is entered
correctly, SmartCard is checked and the operating system is booted. The SmartCard must
remain in the SmartCard reader during the entire work session.
In addition, the software allows you to block your computer during breaks. This allows
you to leave your notebook unattended, without the risk of unauthorised persons
being able to access your opened documents and data.
The settings for blocking access to the computer during a session are set up in
SmartCase™ Logon+ under OS Logon (Smarty). Among other things, Smarty allows
you to specify how users should log on to the operating system, e.g.:
• Fingerprint (without a SmartCard)
• TPM with PIN (without a SmartCard)
• Windows password

Trusted Platform Module (TPM) (device-dependent)
Trusted Platform Module
TPM
To use the TPM, you must activate the TPM in the BIOS Setup before the software is
installed. The condition for this is that you have assigned at least the supervisor password
(see "Setting the supervisor and user password", Page 35).
Options for using the TPM
You can use the TPM in different ways:

Microsoft® BitLocker
SmartCaseTM Logon+ offers additional help with managing and
using the numerous passwords required to work with the computer.
To install, configure and use SmartCase™ Logon+, please refer to
the documentation and online help on the CD with the SmartCase™
Logon+ software.
Smart Security API 4.1 is a middleware which supports all of the
mobile and stationary clients of Fujitsu Siemens. Regardless of the
TPM hardware, it is required by anybody who uses a PKI Smart
Security environment for identification purposes.
BitLocker Drive Encryption (BDE) is a feature of Microsoft® Vista
Enterprise and Ultimate Editions for encryption of the hard disk
drive. Here, BitLocker uses the TPM for the storage of the recovery
data which are used for decryption of the partition.
It is also possible to use BitLocker without TPM and to use just
the USB Dongle for the storage of the encryption key. This option
is particularly interesting if Vista is installed on a computer on
which either an older version of TPM (pre version 1.2) or no TPM
is installed.
A requirement for BitLocker is that you must have set up at least
two partitions on your hard disk. The first partition contains the
booting information. The second, larger partition is encrypted and
contains the operating system and the user data.
Important: The partitions must be set up before Windows Vista
is installed.
Enabling TPM
► Call up the BIOS Setup and select the Security menu.
► Mark the field TPM Security Chip Setting (LIFEBOOK) or TPM Configuration
(ESPRIMO Mobile) and press Enter.
► Select Enabled to activate the TPM.
Once you have activated the TPM the Clear Security Chip option appears.
Select Clear Security Chip to delete the holder in the TPM. By clicking on Enabled,
all secret keys (e.g. SRK - Storage Root Keys, AIK - Attestation Identity Keys
etc.) generated by applications are deleted.
Please note that you will then no longer be able to access the data you have
encrypted with the keys based on that holder.
► Select the Exit Saving Changes option in the Exit menu.
► Press the Enter key and select Yes.
The notebook will restart, and TPM will be enabled after the reboot.

a standard modular jack type USOC RJ-11C which is FCC Part 68 compliant and a line cord
between the modem and the telephone network with a minimum of 26AWG.
The REN is used to determine the number of devices that you may connect to your telephone
line and still have all of those devices ring when your number is called. Too many devices
on one line may result in failure to ring in response to an incoming call. In most, but not all,
areas the sum of the RENs of all of the devices should not exceed five (5). To be certain
of the number of devices you may connect to your line, as determined by the RENs, contact
your local telephone company. If this equipment causes harm to the telephone network, your
telephone company may discontinue your service temporarily. If possible, they will notify you
in advance. If advance notice is not practical they will notify you as soon as possible. You
will also be advised of your right to file a complaint with the FCC.
