Handling static-sensitive devices
Do not open the static-protective package containing the new part until the
defective part has been removed from the computer and you are ready to install
the new part. Static electricity, although harmless to you, can seriously damage
computer components and parts.
When you handle parts and other computer components, take these precautions to
avoid static-electricity damage:
© Lenovo 2005, 2007. Portions © IBM Corp. 2005.
3
v Limit your movement. Movement can cause static electricity to build up around
you.
v Always handle parts and other computer components carefully. Handle
adapters, memory modules, system boards, and microprocessors by the edges.
Never touch any exposed circuitry.
v Prevent others from touching the parts and other computer components.
v Before you replace a new part, touch the static-protective package containing the
part 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 new part from the static-protective packaging, and
install it directly in the computer without setting the part down. When this is
not possible, place the static-protective package that the part came in on a
smooth, level surface and place the part on it.
v Do not place the part on the computer cover or other metal surface.

Replacing the battery
Your computer has a special type of memory that maintains the date, time, and
settings for built-in features, such as parallel-port assignments (configuration). A
battery keeps this information active when you turn off the computer.
The battery normally requires no charging or maintenance throughout its life;
however, no battery lasts forever. If the battery fails, the date, time, and
configuration information (including passwords) are lost. An error message is
displayed when you turn on the computer.
Refer to the "Lithium battery notice" in the Safety and Warranty Guide for
information about replacing and disposing of the battery.
To change the battery:
1. Turn off the computer and disconnect the power cord from the electrical outlet
and from the computer.
2. Remove the computer cover. See “Removing the cover” on page 11.
3. You might have to access the system board components. See “Accessing system

Chapter 5. Security features
To help prevent hardware theft and unauthorized access to your computer, several
security lock options are available. In addition to a physical lock, unauthorized use
of your computer can be prevented by a software lock that locks the keyboard
until a correct password is typed in.
Make sure that any security cables you install do not interfere with other computer
cables.
Integrated cable lock
With an integrated cable lock (sometimes referred to as the Kensington lock), you
can secure your computer to a desk, table, or other non-permanent fixture. The
cable lock attaches to a security slot at the rear of your computer and is operated
with a key. The cable lock also locks the buttons used to open the computer cover.
This is the same type of lock used with many laptop computers. You can order a
security cable directly from Lenovo. Go to http://www.lenovo.com/support/ and
search on Kensington.
