General Precautions
TOSHIBA computers are designed to optimize safety, minimize strain and
withstand the rigors of portability. However, certain precautions should be
observed to further reduce the risk of personal injury or damage to the
computer.
Be certain to read the general precautions below and to note the cautions
included in the text of the manual.
Provide adequate ventilation
■ Always make sure your computer and AC adaptor have adequate
ventilation and are protected from overheating when the power is
turned on or when an AC adaptor is connected to a power outlet
(even if your computer is in Sleep Mode). In this condition, observe the
following:
■ Never cover your computer or AC adaptor with any object.
■ Never place your computer or AC adaptor near a heat source, such
as anelectric blanket or heater.
■ Never cover or block the air vents including those located at the
base of the computer.
■ Always operate your computer on a hard flat surface. Using your
computer on a carpet or other soft material can block the vents.
■ Always provide sufficient space around the computer.
■ Overheating your computer or AC adaptor could cause system failure,
computer or AC adaptor damage or a fire, possibly resulting in serious
injury.
Creating a computer-friendly environment
Place the computer on a flat surface that is large enough for the computer
and any other items you are using, such as a printer.
Leave enough space around the computer and other equipment to provide
adequate ventilation. Otherwise, they may overheat.
To keep your computer in prime operating condition, protect your work
area from:
■ Dust, moisture, and direct sunlight.
■ Equipment that generates a strong electromagnetic field, such as
stereo speakers (other than speakers that are connected to the
computer) or speakerphones.
xviii
User’s Manual
Qosmio F60 Series
■ Rapid changes in temperature or humidity and sources of temperature
change such as air conditioner vents or heaters.
■ Extreme heat, cold, or humidity.
■ Liquids and corrosive chemicals.
Stress injury
Carefully read the Instruction Manual for Safety and Comfort. It contains
information on the prevention of stress injuries to your hands and wrists
that can be caused by extensive keyboard use. Instruction Manual for
Safety and Comfort also includes information on work space design,
posture and lighting that can help reduce physical stress.
Heat injury
■ Avoid prolonged physical contact with the computer. If the computer is
used for long periods, its surface can become very warm. While the
temperature will not feel hot to the touch, if you maintain physical
contact with the computer for a long time, for example if you rest the
computer on your lap or if you keep your hands on the palm rest, your
skin might suffer a low-heat injury.
■ If the computer has been used for a long time, avoid direct contact with
the metal plate supporting the various interface ports as this can
become hot.
■ The surface of the AC adaptor can become hot when in use but this
condition does not indicate a malfunction. If you need to transport the
AC adaptor, you should disconnect it and let it cool before moving it.
■ Do not lay the AC adaptor on a material that is sensitive to heat as the
material could become damaged.
Pressure or impact damage
Do not apply heavy pressure to the computer or subject it to any form of
strong impact as this can damage the computer’s components or otherwise
cause it to malfunction.
Mobile phones
Please be aware that the use of mobile phones can interfere with the audio
system. The operation of the computer will not be impaired in any way, but
it is recommended that a minimum distance of 30cm is maintained between
the computer and a mobile phone that is in use.
Instruction Manual for Safety and Comfort
All important information on the safe and proper use of this computer is
described in the enclosed Instruction Manual for Safety and Comfort.
Be sure to read it before using the computer.

The cautions on use of a Qosmio F60 Series computer
1. Clean any dust accumulated on the computer’s cooling vents.
The cooling vents are located on the left side and underside of the
computer.
When you use your computer in a dusty area, dirt and debris may
accumulate on the cooling vents at the under side of your unit. If this
occurs, the accumulated dust can cause insufficient heat dissipation which
may result in the computer shutting down during use. Carefully clean the
dust from the vents using a vacuum cleaner.
2. Cooling vents on the underside and left side of the computer.

1. Cooling vents
Cooling vents
To prevent possible overheating of the CPU, make sure the cooling fan’s
air intake is not blocked. The fan draws in air by creating a vacuum. If the
fan is blocked, it could cause the CPU to run at a lower performance level
or cause the computer to shut down. Loose items such as notebook and
tissue paper, plastic wrappers, or other similar materials can block the air
intake, preventing air from reaching the CPU. Do not use the computer on
surfaces with objects that can be drawn in by the cooling fan.

Qosmio F60 Series
Connecting the AC adaptor
Attach the AC adaptor when you need to charge the battery or you want to
operate from AC power. It is also the fastest way to get started, because
the battery pack will need to be charged before you can operate from
battery power.
The AC adaptor can be connected to any power source supplying from
100 to 240 volts and 50 or 60 hertz. For details on using the AC adaptor to
charge the battery pack, refer to Chapter 6, Power and Power-Up Modes.
■ Always use the TOSHIBA AC adaptor that was included with your
computer or use AC adaptors specified by TOSHIBA to avoid any risk
of fire or other damage to the computer. Use of an incompatible AC
adaptor could cause fire or damage to the computer possibly resulting
in serious injury. TOSHIBA assumes no liability for any damage caused
by use of an incompatible adaptor.
■ Never plug the AC adaptor into a power source that does not
correspond to both the voltage and the frequency specified on the
regulatory label of the unit. Failure to do so could result in a fire or
electric shock, possibly resulting in serious injury.
■ Always use or purchase power cables that comply with the legal
voltage and frequency specifications and requirements in the country of
use. Failure to do so could result in a fire or electric shock, possibly
resulting in serious injury.
■ The supplied power cord conforms to safety rules and regulations in
the region the product is bought and should not be used outside this
region. For use in other regions, please buy power cords that conform
to safety rules and regulations in the particular region.
■ Do not use a 3-pin to 2-pin conversion plug.
■ When you connect the AC adaptor to the computer, always follow the
steps in the exact order as described in the User’s Manual. Connecting
the power cable to a live electrical outlet should be the last step
otherwise the adaptor DC output plug could hold an electrical charge
and cause an electrical shock or minor bodily injury when touched.
As a general safety precaution, avoid touching any metal parts.
■ Never place your computer or AC adaptor on a wooden surface,
furniture, or any other surface that could be marred by exposure to heat
since the computer base and AC adaptor’s surface increase in
temperature during normal use.
■ Always place your computer or AC adaptor on a flat and hard surface
that is resistant to heat damage.
Refer to the enclosed Instruction Manual for Safety and Comfort for
detailed precautions and handling instructions.

The amount of Total Available Graphics memory
will vary be between 1 and 2 MB depending upon
system configuration.
If your computer is configured with more than 3 GB memory, the memory
might be displayed as approximately 3 GB only (depending on the
computer’s hardware specifications).
This is correct because the operating system usually displays the available
memory instead of the physical memory (RAM) built into the computer.
Various system components (like the video adapter’s GPU and PCI
devices like Wireless LAN, etc.) require their own memory space. Since a
32-bit operating system cannot address more than 4 GB of memory, these
system resources overlap the physical memory. It is a technical limitation
that the overlapped memory is not available to the operating system. Even
though some tools might display the actual physical memory built into your
computer, the memory available to the operating system will still be
approximately 3 GB only.

easier and faster. In the Mouse Properties you can enable/disable these
functions.

You can scroll vertically and horizontally. To enable these features, select
the Enable vertical scrolling and Enable horizontal scrolling check
boxes.
Click on the window or item you wish to scroll and slide your finger upwards
or downwards along the right edge of the TouchPad to scroll vertically. Slide
your finger to the left or right along the lower edge of the TouchPad to scroll
horizontally.
If scrolling does not respond, ensure that the appropriate check box is
selected and that the window or item on which you have clicked is
scrollable. If you still have problems, check your Scrolling Region settings.
Pinch Zoom (Pinch)
The Pinch Zoom gesture delivers zooming functionality in many
applications. You can use the Pinch Zoom gesture to perform the same
functions that a scroll wheel performs on standard Windows applications
that support CTRL-SCROLL WHEEL zoom functionality.
To enable this feature, select the Enable Pinch Zoom check box.
To use a Pinch Zoom gesture:
1. Place two fingers down on the TouchPad surface.
2. Slide the fingers further apart to zoom in or slide the fingers closer
together to zoom out. For the best zooming experience, use the tips of
your fingers.

The Momentum feature delivers smooth, fast, trackball-like mouse
movement. One quick flick of the finger on the TouchPad surface can move
the cursor across the entire computer screen. Momentum reduces the
repetitive motion and fatigue associated with moving the cursor long
distances, while providing a smooth and natural feel similar to using a
trackball. Momentum is ideal for Real Time Strategy (RTS) games, First
Person Shooter (FPS) games, and Role Playing Games (RPG).

Using the TOSHIBA Face Recognition
TOSHIBA Face Recognition uses a face verification library to verify the
face data of users when they log in to Windows. The user can thus avoid
having to enter a password or the like, which makes the login process
easier.
■ TOSHIBA Face Recognition does not guarantee the correct
identification of a user. Changes to the likeness of a registrant, such as
hair style changes, wearing a cap, or wearing glasses may effect the
recognition rates when such changes occur after the registrant had
registered.
■ TOSHIBA Face Recognition may incorrectly recognize faces that are
similar to a registrant.
■ For high security purposes, TOSHIBA Face Recognition is not a
suitable substitute for Windows passwords. When security is a high
priority, use your established Windows passwords to log in.
■ Bright background light and/or shadows may prevent a registrant from
being recognized correctly. In that case, log in using your Windows
password. If recognition of a registrant fails repeatedly, refer to your
computer documentation to learn ways to improve recognition
performance.
■ TOSHIBA Face Recognition records face data in a log when face
recognition fails. When transferring ownership or disposing of your
computer, please uninstall the application or delete all the logs created
by the application. For details on how to do this, see help file.
■ TOSHIBA Face Recognition can be used only in Windows 7.

■ Please refer to the Writable discs, Chapter 2 for details about the types
of writable CD/DVD/BD discs that can be supported by this computer.
■ Do not turn off the power to the optical disc drive while the computer is
accessing it as this may cause you to lose data.
■ CD-R/RW media cannot be accessed using the Create CD/DVD option
in Media Center.
■ To write data to CD-R/-RW media, use the TOSHIBA Disc Creator
feature that is installed on your computer.
When writing information to media using an optical drive, you should
always ensure that you connect the AC adaptor to a live power socket. It is
possible that, if data is written while powered by the battery pack, the write
process may sometimes fail due to low battery power - in these instances
data loss may occur.
Important message
Before you write or rewrite to any of the media supported by the DVD
Super Multi drive or BD-R/RE drive, please read and follow all of the setup
and operating instructions in this section. If you fail to do so, you may find
that the DVD Super Multi drive or BD-R/RE drive may not function properly,
and you may fail to write or rewrite information successfully - this may
cause you to either lose data or incur other damage to the drive or media.
Disclaimer
TOSHIBA does not bear responsibility for the following:
■ Damage to any CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-R, DVD-R (Dual Layer), DVD-RW,

(Dual Layer) media that may be caused by writing or rewriting with this
product, or for any business profit loss or business interruption that may
be caused by the change or loss of the recorded contents.
■ Damage that may be caused by using third party equipment or
software.
Given the technological limitations of current optical disc writing drives, you
may experience unexpected writing or rewriting errors due to disc quality or
problems with hardware devices. In view of this, it is good practice to make
two or more copies of important data, in case of any undesired change or
loss of the recorded contents.

User’s Manual
Qosmio F60 Series
■ There are two types of DVD-R media available, authoring discs and
general use discs. Do not attempt to use authoring discs as only
general use discs can be written to by a computer drive.
■ You can use both DVD-RAM discs that can be removed from a cartridge
and DVD-RAM discs designed without a cartridge.
■ You may find that other computer DVD-ROM drives or other DVD
players may not be able to read DVD-R, DVD-R (Dual Layer), DVD-RW,
DVD+R, DVD+R (Double Layer) or DVD+RW discs.
■ Data written to a CD-R, DVD-R, DVD-R (Dual Layer), DVD+R or
DVD+R (Double Layer) discs cannot be deleted either in whole or
in part.
■ Data deleted/erased from a CD-RW, DVD-RW, DVD+RW or DVD-RAM
disc cannot be recovered. You must check the content of the disc
carefully before you delete it, taking care that, if multiple drives that can
write data to discs are connected, you do not delete data from the
wrong one.
■ In writing to DVD-R, DVD-R (Dual Layer), DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+R
(Double Layer), DVD+RW or DVD-RAM media, some space is required
for file management, so you may not be able to write to the full capacity
of the disc.
■ Since the disc is based on the DVD standard, it might be filled with
dummy data if the written data is less than about 1GB. Therefore,
in these circumstance, even if you write only a small amount of data,
it might take additional time to fill in the dummy data.
■ When multiple drives that can write data to discs are connected, be
sure that you do not write to or delete data from the wrong drive.
■ Be sure to connect the AC adaptor to the computer before you write or
rewrite any information.
■ Before you enter either Sleep Mode or Hibernation Mode, take care to
ensure that any DVD-RAM writing has been completed. In this instance,
writing is finished if you can eject the DVD-RAM media.
■ Be sure to close all other software programs except for the writing
software itself.
■ Do not run software such as a screen saver which can put a heavy load
on the processor.
■ Operate the computer at its full power settings - do not use any
power-saving features.
■ Do not write information while virus checking software is running,
instead wait for it to finish, then disable the virus protection applications,
including any software that checks files automatically in the
background.
■ Do not use any hard disk utilities, including those that are intended to
enhance hard disk drive access speeds, as they may cause unstable
operation and damage data.
■ CD-RW (Ultra Speed +) media should not be used as data may be lost
or damaged.
User’s Manual

Qosmio F60 Series
■ You should always write from the computer’s hard disk drive onto the
CD/DVD - do not try to write from shared devices such as a server or
any other network device.
■ Writing with software other than TOSHIBA Disc Creator has not been
confirmed, therefore operation with other software applications cannot
be guaranteed.
When writing or rewriting
Please observe the following points while you write or rewrite data to CD-R,
CD-RW, DVD-R, DVD-R (Dual Layer), DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+R (Double
Layer), DVD+RW, DVD-RAM, BD-R, BD-R (Dual Layer), BD-RE or BD-RE
(Dual Layer) media:
■ Always copy data from the hard disk drive to the optical media - do not
use the cut-and-paste function as the original data will be lost if there is
a write error.
■ Do not perform any of the following actions:
■ Change users in the Windows 7 operating system.
■ Operate the computer for any other function, including such tasks as
using a mouse or Touch Pad, or closing/opening the display panel.
■ Start a communication application.
■ Apply impact or vibration to the computer.

or an optical digital device.
■ Use the audio/video control button to reproduce music or voice.
■ Open the optical disc drive.
■ Do not use shut down, log off, Sleep Mode or Hibernation Mode
functions while writing or rewriting.
■ Make sure that the write/rewrite operation is completed before going
into either Sleep Mode or Hibernation Mode (writing is completed if you
can remove an optical media on the DVD Super Multi drive or BD-R/RE
drive).
■ If the media is of poor quality, or is dirty or damaged, writing or rewriting
errors may occur.
■ Set the computer on a level surface and avoid places subject to
vibration such as airplanes, trains or cars. In addition, do not use the
computer on an unstable surface such as a stand.
■ Keep mobile phones and other wireless communication devices away
from the computer.

Media care
This section provides tips on protecting data stored on your CD’s, DVD’s,
BD’s and floppy diskettes. Handle your media with care. Following the
simple precautions listed below will increase the lifetime of your media and
protect the data stored on it.
CD/DVD/BDs
1. Store your CD/DVD/BD’s in the containers they originally came in to
protect them and keep them clean.
2. Do not bend the CD/DVD/BD’s.
3. Do not write on, apply a sticker to, or otherwise mar the surface of the
CD/DVD/BD that contains the data.
4. Hold the CD/DVD/BD by its outside edge or the edge on the center
hole - any fingerprints on the surface of the disc can prevent the drive
from properly reading data.
5. Do not expose the CD/DVD/BD to direct sunlight, extreme heat or cold.
6. Do not place heavy objects on your CD/DVD/BD’s.
7. If your CD/DVD/BD’s become dusty or dirty, wipe them with a clean dry
cloth from the center hole outwards - do not wipe in a circular direction.
If necessary, you can use a cloth that has been lightly dampened in
water or a neutral cleaner but you must not use benzine, thinner or any
similar cleaning solution.
Floppy diskettes
The USB floppy diskette drive is available only as an option.
1. Store your floppy diskettes in the container they came in to protect them
and keep them clean. If a floppy diskette becomes dirty, clean it with a
soft, lightly dampened cloth - do not use cleaning fluid.
2. Never open the shutter or touch the magnetic surface of your floppy
diskette - doing this could permanently damage it and lose data.
3. Always handle floppy diskettes with care to prevent the loss of stored
data.
4. Always apply the floppy diskette label in the correct location and never
apply a new label on top of an existing one - in this instance the label
could come loose and damage the floppy diskette drive.
5. Never use a pencil for writing on a floppy diskette label as the dust from
the pencil lead could cause a system malfunction if it found its way onto
the computer’s components. In this instance, always use a felt-tipped
pen and write the label first before applying it to the floppy diskette.
6. Never put a floppy diskette in a location where water or other liquid may
make contact with it, or where it is excessively damp - either of these
conditions could cause data loss.
7. Never use a wet or damp floppy diskette - this could damage the floppy
diskette drive or other devices within the computer.
4-28
User’s Manual
Qosmio F60 Series
8. Data may be lost if the floppy diskette is twisted, bent, or exposed to
direct sunlight, extreme heat or cold.
9. Do not place heavy objects on your floppy diskettes.
10. Do not eat, smoke, or use items such as erasers near your floppy
diskettes as foreign particles inside the jacket of the floppy diskette can
damage the magnetic surface.
11. Magnetic energy can destroy the data on your floppy diskettes. In view
of this you should keep your floppy diskettes away from speakers,
radios, televisions and other sources of magnetic fields.

In use there are five different types of keys, specifically typewriter keys,
function keys, soft keys, Hot keys and Windows special keys.
Typewriter keys
The typewriter keys produce the upper-case and lower-case letters,
numbers, punctuation marks, and special symbols that appear on the
screen. However, there are some differences between using a typewriter
and using a computer keyboard:
■ Letters and numbers produced in computer text vary in width. Spaces,
which are created by a “space character” may also vary depending on
line justification and other factors.
■ The lowercase l (el) and the number 1 (one), together with the
uppercase O (oh) and the 0 (zero), are not interchangeable on
computers as they are on a typewriter.
■ The CAPS LOCK function key locks only the alphabetic characters into
upper-case while the Shift Lock function on a typewriter places all keys
in the shifted position.
■ The SHIFT keys, the Tab key, and the BACK SPACE key perform the
same function as their typewriter counterparts but also have special
computer functions.
Never remove the key caps on your keyboard. Doing so could cause
damage to the parts under the key caps.

Function keys: F1 … F9
The function keys (not to be confused with the special FN key) are the
twelve keys at the top of your keyboard - these keys function differently
from other keys.
F1 through F9 are called function keys because they execute programmed
functions when pressed and, when used in combination with the FN key,
those keys marked with icons also execute specific functions on the
computer. Please refer to the section, Soft keys: FN key combinations,
in this chapter for further information, taking care to note that the function
executed by individual keys will depend on the software you are using.
Soft keys: FN key combinations
The FN (function) is unique to TOSHIBA computers and is used in
combination with other keys to form soft keys. Soft keys are key
combinations that enable, disable or configure specific features.
Please note that some software may disable or interfere with soft-key
operations, and that the soft-key settings are not restored when the
computer returns from Sleep Mode.
Hot keys
Hot keys (pressing FN + a function or ESC key) let you enable or disable
certain features of the computer.
Mute: Pressing FN + ESC turns the volume on and off.
Lock: Pressing FN + F1 enters “Lock computer mode”. To restore your
desktop, you need to log on again.

Battery
This section explains battery types, use, recharging methods and handling.
Battery types
The computer has two different types of batteries.
Battery pack
When the AC adaptor is not connected, the computer’s main power source
is a removable lithium ion battery pack, also referred to in this manual as
the main battery. You can purchase additional battery packs for extended
use of the computer away from an AC power source although you should
not change the battery pack while the AC adaptor is connected.
Before you remove the battery pack, save your data and shut down the
computer, or place the computer into Hibernation Mode. Please be aware
that, when placing the computer into Hibernation Mode, the contents of
memory will be saved to the hard disk drive, although for safety sake, it is
best to also save your data manually.
Real Time Clock (RTC) battery
The Real Time Clock (RTC) battery provides power for the internal real
time clock and calendar function and also maintains the system
configuration while the computer is turned off. If the RTC battery becomes
completely discharged, the system will lose this information and the real
time clock and calendar will stop working - in this instance the following
message will be displayed when you turn on the power:
S
**** RTC Power Failure ****
Check system. Then press [F2] key.
You can change the Real Time Clock settings by turning the computer on
while pressing the F2 key and then release the F2 key when the Qosmio
logo screen appears. Please refer to Chapter 9, Troubleshooting, for further
information.
The RTC battery does not charge while the computer is turned off even if
the AC adaptor is attached.

User’s Manual
Qosmio F60 Series
Care and use of the battery pack
This section provides the important safety precautions in order to handle
your battery pack properly.
Refer to the enclosed Instruction Manual for Safety and Comfort for
detailed precautions and handling instructions.
■ Make sure the battery is securely installed in the computer before
attempting to charge the battery pack. Improper installation could
generate smoke or fire, or cause the battery pack to rupture.
■ Keep the battery pack out of reach of infants and children. It can cause
injury.
■ The battery pack is lithium ion battery, which can explode if not
replaced, used, handled or disposed of properly. Dispose of the battery
as required by local ordinances or regulations. Use only batteries
recommended by TOSHIBA as replacements.
■ The computer’s RTC battery is a Ni-MH battery and should be replaced
only by your dealer or by a TOSHIBA service representative. The
battery can explode if not properly replaced, used, handled or
disposed. Dispose of the battery as required by local ordinances or
regulations.
■ Charge the battery pack only in an ambient temperature between
5 and 35 degrees Celsius. Otherwise, the electrolyte solution might
leak, battery pack performance might deteriorate and the battery life
might be shortened.
■ Never install or remove the battery pack without first turning off the
power and disconnecting the AC adaptor. Never remove the battery
pack while the computer is in Sleep Mode. Data could be lost.
Never remove the battery pack while the Wake-up on LAN function is
enabled. Data will be lost. Before you remove a battery pack, disable the
Wake-up on LAN function.
Charging the batteries
When the power in the battery pack becomes low, the Battery indicator will
flash orange to indicate that only a few minutes of battery power remain.
If you continue to use the computer while the Battery indicator flashes, the
computer will enable Hibernation Mode so that you do not lose any data,
and automatically turn itself off.
You must recharge a battery pack when it becomes discharged.
User’s Manual

Qosmio F60 Series
Procedures
To recharge a battery pack while it is installed in the computer, connect the
AC adaptor to the DC IN 19V jack and plug the other end into a working
outlet - the Battery indicator will glow orange while the battery is being
charged.
Use only the computer connected to an AC power source or optional
TOSHIBA Battery charger to charge the battery pack. Never attempt to
charge the battery pack with any other charger.
Time
Refer to User’s Manual about Charging time.
Battery charging notice
The battery may not begin charging immediately under the following
conditions:
■ The battery is extremely hot or cold (if the battery is extremely hot,
it might not charge at all). To ensure the battery charges to its full
capacity, you should charge it at room temperature of between
5° to 35°C (41° to 95°F).
■ The battery is nearly completely discharged. In this instance you should
leave the AC adaptor connected for a few minutes and the battery
should begin charging.
The Battery indicator may show a rapid decrease in battery operating time
when you try to charge a battery under the following conditions:
■ The battery has not been used for a long time.
■ The battery has completely discharged and been left in the computer for
a long time.
■ A cool battery is installed in a warm computer.
In such cases you should follow the steps as detailed below:
1. Fully discharge the battery by leaving it in the computer with the power
on until the system automatically turns itself off.
2. Connect the AC adaptor to the DC IN 19V jack of the computer, and to
a wall outlet that is supplying power.
3. Charge the battery until the Battery indicator glows white.
Repeat these steps two or three times until the battery recovers normal
capacity.

User’s Manual
Qosmio F60 Series
Monitoring battery capacity
Remaining battery power can be monitored using the following methods.
■ Clicking the battery icon on the Taskbar
■ Via the Battery Status in the Windows Mobility Center window
■ You should wait at least 16 seconds after turning on the computer
before trying to monitor the remaining operating time. This is because
the computer needs this time to check the battery’s remaining capacity
and then calculate the remaining operating time, based on this together
with the current power consumption.
■ Please be aware that the actual remaining operating time may differ
slightly from the calculated time.
■ With repeated discharges and recharges, the battery’s capacity will
gradually decrease. In view of this it will be noted that an often used,
older battery will not operate for as long as a new battery even when
both are fully charged.
Maximizing battery operating time
A battery’s usefulness depends on how long it can supply power on a
single charge, while how long the charge lasts in a battery depends on:
■ Processor speed
■ Screen brightness
■ System Sleep Mode
■ System Hibernation Mode
■ Display power off period
■ Hard disk drive power off period
■ How often and for how long you use the hard disk drive and external
disk(c) drives, for example, optical disc and floppy diskette drive.
■ How much charge the battery contained to begin with.
■ How you use optional devices to which the battery supplies power.
■ Whether you enable Sleep Mode, which can conserve battery power if
you are frequently turning the computer off and on.
■ Where you store your programs and data.
■ Whether you close the display panel when you are not using the
keyboard - closing the display saves power.
■ The environmental temperature - operating time decreases at low
temperatures.
■ The condition of the battery terminals - you should always ensure the
terminals stay clean by wiping them with a clean dry cloth before
installing the battery pack.

Retaining data with power off
Refer to User’s Manual about Retention time.
Extending battery life
To maximize the life of your battery packs:
■ At least once a month, disconnect the computer from a power source
and operate it on battery power until the battery pack fully discharges.
Before doing so, follow the steps as detailed below.
1. Turn off the computer’s power.
2. Disconnect the AC adaptor and turn on the computer’s power if it does not turn on then go to Step 4.
3. Operate the computer on battery power for five minutes. If you find
that the battery pack has at least five minutes of operating time,
continue operating until the battery pack is fully discharged,
however, if the Battery indicator flashes or there is some other
warning to indicate a low battery condition, go to Step 4.
4. Connect the AC adaptor to the DC IN 19V jack of the computer, and
to a wall outlet that is supplying power. The DC IN indicator should
glow white, and the Battery indicator should glow orange to indicate
that the battery pack is being charged, however, in the event that
DC IN indicator does not glow this indicates that power is not being
supplied - check the connections for the AC adaptor and the power
cord.
5. Charge the battery pack until the Battery indicator glows white.
■ If you have extra battery packs, rotate their use.
■ If you will not be using the system for an extended period, for example
for more than one month, remove the battery pack from the computer.
■ Store spare battery packs in a cool dry place out of direct sunlight.
Replacing the battery pack
Please be aware that the battery pack is classified as a consumable item.
The operating life of the battery pack will gradually reduce through
repeated charging and discharging, and will need to be replaced when it
reaches the end of its operating life. In addition to this, you might also
replace a discharged battery pack with a charged spare when you are
operating your computer away from an AC power source for an extended
period of time.
This section explains how to remove and install the battery pack, and
begins with the removal process which is detailed through the following
steps.

Troubleshooting
TOSHIBA have designed this computer for durability, however, should
problems occur you are able to use the procedures detailed in this chapter
to help determine the cause.
All users should become familiar with this chapter as knowing what might
go wrong can help prevent problems from occurring in the first place.
Problem solving process
Resolving problems will be much easier if you observe the following
guidelines:
■ Stop immediately when you recognize a problem exists as taking further
action may result in data loss or damage, or you may destroy valuable
problem related information that can help solve the problem.
■ Observe what is happening - write down what the system is doing and
what actions you performed immediately before the problem occurred.
If you have a printer attached, print a copy of the screen using the
computer’s PRTSC key.
Please also be aware that the questions and procedures described in this
chapter are meant only as a guide, they are not definitive problem solving
techniques. In reality many problems can be solved simply, but a few may
require help from your reseller, dealer or service provider - if you find you
need to consult others, be prepared to describe the problem in as much
detail as possible.
User’s Manual
9-1
Qosmio F60 Series
Preliminary checklist
You should always consider the simplest solution first - the items detailed in
this checklist are easy to fix and yet can cause what appears to be a
serious problem:
■ Make sure you turn on all peripheral devices before you turn on the
computer - this includes your printer and any other external device you
are using.
■ Before you attach an external device you should first turn the computer
off, then when you turn the computer back on again it will recognize the
new device.
■ Make sure all optional accessories are configured properly in the
computer’s setup program and that all required driver software has
been loaded (please refer to the documentation included with the
optional accessories for further information on its installation and
configuration).
■ Check all cables to ensure they are correctly and firmly attached to the
computer - loose cables can cause signal errors.
■ Inspect all connecting cables for loose wires and all connectors for
loose pins.
■ Check that your floppy diskette, CD or DVD media is correctly loaded
and, in the case of a floppy diskette, that its write protect tab is
correctly set.
Always try to make detailed notes of your observations and keep them in a
permanent error log - this will help you to describe your problems to your
reseller, dealer or service provider. In addition, if a problem recurs, the log
you have made will help to identify the problem faster.
Analyzing the problem
Sometimes the computer will give you clues that can help you identify why
it is malfunctioning. In view of this you should keep the following questions
in mind:
■ Which part of the computer is not operating properly - keyboard, hard
disk drive, optical disc drive, display panel, touch pad, touch pad control
buttons - as each device will produce different symptoms.
■ Check the options within the operating system to ensure that its
configuration is set properly.
■ What appears on the display? Does it display any messages or random
characters? If you have a printer attached, print a copy of the screen
using the PRTSC key and, if possible, look up the messages in the
documentation included with the computer, software or operating
system.
■ Check that all connecting cables are correctly and firmly attached as
loose cables can cause erroneous or intermittent signals.
■ Do any indicators light, if so, which ones, what color are they and do
they stay on or blink? Write down what you see.
9-2
User’s Manual
Qosmio F60 Series
■ Do you hear any beeps, if so how many, are they long or short and are
they high pitched or low pitched? In addition, is the computer making
any unusual noises? Write down what you hear.
Record your observations so you can describe them in detail to your
reseller, dealer or service provider.
Software
Hardware
The problems may be caused by your software or disk. If you
cannot load a software package, the media may be damaged
or the program might be corrupted - in these instances try
loading another copy of the software if possible.
If an error message appears while you are using a software
package you should refer to the documentation supplied with
it as this will usually include a problem solving section or a
summary of error messages.
Next, you should check any error messages against the
operating system documentation.
If you cannot find a software problem, you should then check
the setup and configuration of your hardware. First run
through the items in the preliminary checklist as described
previously then, if you still cannot correct the problem, try to
identify the source - the next section provides checklists for
individual components and peripherals.
Before using a peripheral device or application software that is not an
authorized Toshiba part or product, make sure the device or software can
be used with your computer. Use of incompatible devices may cause injury
or may damage your computer.
Hardware and system checklist
This section discusses problems caused by your computer’s hardware or
attached peripherals. Basic problems may occur in the following areas:
■ MultiMediaCard
■ System start-up
■ Infrared receiver window
■ Self test

System start-up
When the computer does not start properly, check the following items:
■ Self Test
■ Power Sources
■ Power-on Password
Self test
While booting up the computer, self test is executed automatically and the
following will be displayed:
S
This message remains on the screen for a few seconds.
If the self test is successful, the computer tries to load the operating system
according to how the Boot Priority option is set within the TOSHIBA HW
Setup program.
If any of the following conditions are present, the self test has failed:
■ The computer stops and does not proceed to display information or
messages except for the TOSHIBA logo.
■ Random characters appear on the screen and the system does not
function normally.
■ The screen displays an error message.
In these instances, turn off the computer, check all cable connections and
then restart it - if the self test fails again, contact your reseller, dealer or
service provider.
Power
When the computer is not plugged into an AC power outlet, the battery
pack is the primary power source. However, your computer also has a
number of other power resources, including an intelligent power supply and
a Real Time Clock (RTC) battery, all of which are interrelated with any one
having the ability to produce apparent power problems.
This section provides checklists for AC power and the battery. If you cannot
resolve a problem after following them, the cause may lie with another
power related resource - in such an instance you should contact your
reseller, dealer or service provider.

another appliance into it.
Check whether the battery is hot or cold to the touch
- if so, it will not charge properly and should be
allowed to reach room temperature before you try
again.
Unplug the AC adaptor and remove the battery to
make sure its connecting terminals are clean - if
necessary wipe them with a soft dry cloth lightly
dipped in alcohol.
Connect the AC adaptor and replace the battery,
taking care to ensure that it is securely seated in the
computer.
Check the Battery indicator - if it does not glow,
allow the computer to charge the battery for at least
twenty minutes. If the Battery indicator starts to
glow after this period, allow the battery to continue to
charge for at least another twenty minutes before
turning on the computer. However, if the indicator
still does not glow, the battery may be at the end of
its operating life and should be replaced. However, if
you do not believe the battery is at the end of its
operating life, you should speak to your reseller,
dealer or service provider.
Battery doesn’t
power the
computer as long
as expected
If you frequently recharge a partially charged
battery, the battery might not charge to its full
potential - in these instances you should fully
discharge the battery and then attempt to charge it
again.
Check the Power saver option under Select a
power plan in the Power Options.

Display Controller and Video mode
Display controller
The display controller interprets software commands into hardware
commands that turn particular parts on the screen on or off.
Due to the display panel’s increased resolution, lines may appear broken
in when displaying images in full-screen text mode.
The display controller also controls the video mode and uses industry
standard rules to govern the screen resolution and the maximum number of
colors that can be displayed at any one time. Therefore, software written for
a given video mode will run on any computer that supports that mode.
Video mode
Video mode settings are configured via the Display Properties dialog.
To open the Display Properties dialog, click Start -> Control Panel ->
Appearance and Personalization -> Display.
If you are running some applications (for example a 3D application or video
playback and so on), you may see some disturbance, flickering or frame
dropping on your screen.
If that occurs, adjust the resolution of display, lowering it until the screen is
displayed properly.
Disabling Windows Aero™ may also help correct this issue.

Bluetooth wireless technology and your Health
The products with Bluetooth wireless technology, like other radio devices,
emit radio frequency electromagnetic energy. The level of energy emitted
by devices with Bluetooth wireless technology however is far much less
than the electromagnetic energy emitted by wireless devices like for
example mobile phones.
Because products with Bluetooth wireless technology operate within the
guidelines found in radio frequency safety standards and
recommendations, TOSHIBA believes Bluetooth wireless technology is
safe for use by consumers. These standards and recommendations reflect
the consensus of the scientific community and result from deliberations of
panels and committees of scientists who continually review and interpret
the extensive research literature.
In some situations or environments, the use of Bluetooth wireless
technology may be restricted by the proprietor of the building or responsible
representatives of the organization. These situations may for example
include:
■ Using the equipment with Bluetooth wireless technology on board of
airplanes, or
■ In any other environment where the risk of interference to other devices
or services is perceived or identified as harmful.
If you are uncertain of the policy that applies on the use of wireless devices
in a specific organization or environment (e.g. airports), you are
encouraged to ask for authorization to use the device with Bluetooth
wireless technology prior to turning on the equipment.
