Note that the computer environment referred in the User Guide may not be the same as your own environment. Chapter 1 Getting Started Safety Precaution Notations Icon •• T he pictures used for the cover and the main body in the User Manual are those of the representative model of each series and may differ from the actual appearance of the product. •• This manual provides details of both mouse operations and gestures to manipulate the menus. Gestures are enabled only on touch-sensitive models. •• This manual has been written for the Windows 8.1 operating system. The descriptions and figures may differ depending on the installed operating system. •• The User guide supplied with this computer may vary depending on your model. 3 Notation Description Warning Failure to follow instructions marked with this symbol, may cause personal injury and or fatality. Caution Failure to follow instructions marked with this symbol, may cause slight injury to yourself or damage your property. Text Notations Icon Notation Description Caution Content included in this section includes information required about the function. Note Content included in this section includes helpful information to use the function. Before You Start Copyright Chapter 1 Getting Started 4 About the Product Capacity Representation Standard © 2014 Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. owns the copyright of this manual. About the capacity representation of the storage No part of this manual may be reproduced or transmitted in any form or by any means, electronic or mechanical, without the consent of Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. The capacity of the storage device (HDD, SSD) of the manufacturer is calculated assuming that 1KB=1,000 Bytes. The information in this document is subject to change without notice due to improving the performance of the product. Samsung Electronics shall not be liable for any data loss. Please take care to avoid losing any important data and backup your data to prevent any such data loss. OS and Software Support If you change the product’s factory OS (Operating System) to another OS or if you install software which is not supported by the product’s original factory OS, you will not receive any technical support, product exchange or refund. And a fee will be charged when requesting a service. Please use your computer with the original factory OS. If you install an OS other than the factory OS, data may be deleted or the computer may not start. However, the operating system (Windows) calculates the storage device capacity assuming that 1KB=1,024 Bytes, and therefore the capacity representation of the HDD in Windows is smaller than the actual capacity due to the difference in capacity calculation. (E.g. For a 80GB HDD, Windows represents the capacity as 74.5GB, 80x1,000x1,000x1,000 byte/(1,024x1,024x1,024)byte = 74.505GB) In addition, the capacity representation in Windows may be even smaller because some programs such as Recovery may reside in a hidden area of the HDD. About Memory Capacity Representation The memory capacity reported in Windows is less than the actual capacity of memory. This is because BIOS or a video adapter uses a portion of memory or claims it for further use. (E.g. For 1GB(=1,024MB) memory installed, Windows may report the capacity as 1,022MB or less) Safety Precautions For your security and to prevent damage, please read the following safety instructions carefully. Since this is commonly applied to Samsung computers, some pictures may differ from actual products.

HDMI Glossary Chapter 6 Appendix 129 The Glossary lists the terminologies used in this User Guide. For terminologies other than these, look in Windows Help. Backup DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) A way to save the current data to restore it later if necessary. A backup is a way to restore computer data when the data or computer is damaged. This refers to automatically allocating IP addresses to the users on the network by the network administrators. Chargeable USB An application interface developed to enable Windows application programs to access hardware devices at a very high speed. Since the operating speed of graphics, memory and sound cards must be very fast to provide high quality video and sound for games, Direct X enables faster control and interaction between applications and hardware devices. By using Direct X, the multimedia performance of Windows has been hugely improved. This program enables supplying power to a specific USB port when the system is in power saving mode, hibernation mode or off. Client This refers to a computer that uses a shared network resource provided by a server. DDR SDRAM (Double Data Rate Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory) DRAM is a memory type whose cells consist of a capacitor and transistor manufactured at a low price. SDRAM is a memory type whose performance has been improved by synchronizing the clock with the external CPU clock. DDR SDRAM is a memory type whose performance has been improved by doubling the operating speed of the SDRAM and is widely used nowadays. This computer uses DDR SDRAM. Device Manager An administrative tool used to manage computer devices. You can add or remove hardware or update a device driver using the Device Manager. Direct X Driver Software that interacts between the hardware and the operating system. An operating system knows the hardware information and controls the hardware. In general, a driver is supplied with the corresponding hardware device. D-sub (D-subminiature) This is the cable connecting a general CRT monitor and the computer. Analog video is output through this cable. Glossary Chapter 6 Appendix 130 DVD (Digital Versatile Disk) Icon DVD was developed to replace CD (compact disk). Although the shape and size of the disc are the same as that of a CD, the capacity of a DVD is at least 4.7GB while the capacity of a CD is 600MB. DVD video is digital unlike VHS (analog) video and supports MPEG2 compression and digital audio. To play a DVD, a DVD drive is required. This refers to a small image that represents a file that users can use. Firewall A communications network connecting computers, printers and other devices within a local area such as within a building. A LAN enables all connected devices to interact with other devices on the network. The current LAN uses the Ethernet media access control method developed in the early 1980s. To connect to an Ethernet, a network card called a LAN card, Ethernet card or network interface card is required. To exchange data between computers, a protocol is required besides the hardware equipment. Windows Vista uses TCP/IP as the default protocol. A security system used to protect an internal network or intranet from external networks through an authentication procedure. HDMI This is a digital video / audio interface specification that transmits video and audio signals over a single cable. Hibernation Mode A power mode that saves all data in memory to the hard disk and turns the CPU and hard disk off. When canceling Hibernation Mode, all application programs that were running are restored to their last state. IEEE802.XX This is a set fo specifications developed by the 802 committee of IEEE for the LAN connection method called XX. LAN (Local Area Network) LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) There are Passive Matrix and Active Matrix LCD types. This computer uses the Active Matrix type LCD called a TFT LCD. Since an LCD is implemented by transistors instead of a cathode-ray tube unlike a CRT, its size can be slim. And because it does not blink, it reduces eye strain. Glossary Chapter 6 Appendix 131 Network Protocol A group of computers and devices, such as printers and scanners, connected by a communications link. A network can be either small or large and can be connected permanently through cables or temporarily through telephone lines or wireless links. The biggest network is the Internet, a worldwide network. A protocol is a set of rules used by computers to communicate with each other across a network. A protocol is a convention or standard that controls or enables the connection, communication, and data transfer between computing endpoints. It defines the data transmission procedures and the transmission medium for more efficient network functions. Network Administrator A user who plans, configures and manages network operations. Sometimes, a network administrator is called a system administrator. Notification Area This refers to the right area of the Taskbar including program icons such as the volume control, the power options and the time. Partition This refers to the act or practice of dividing the storage space of a hard disk drive into separate data areas known as partitions. If a 100GB hard disk drive is partitioned into 2 x 50GB partitions, the hard disk drive can be used as if there are 2 hard disk drives. Quick Launch This refers to a toolbar that can be configured so that you can launch a program such as Internet Explorer or display the Windows Desktop with one click. You can add any icon to the quick launch area of the Taskbar and launch frequently used program by clicking that icon. SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) card This is the extension of the SD card that supports over 2GB bytes. Server In general, a server refers to a computer that provides shared resources for network users. Share This refers to setting a resource of a computer such as a folder or printer so that other users can also use it. Glossary Chapter 6 Appendix 132 Shared Folder TCP/IPv4 A folder that can be used by other users on the network. This is a 4 byte (32 bit) address system separated into each byte (8 bits) by a dot and each byte is represented as a decimal number. Sleep Mode A power mode that enables computers to save power consumption when they are not being used. When a computer is in Sleep Mode, the data on the computer memory is not saved to the hard disk. If the power is turned off, the data in memory will be lost. System File System Files refer to files that are read and used by the Windows operating system. In general, system files must not be deleted or moved. USB (Universal Serial Bus) This refers to a serial interface standard developed to replace the conventional interface standards such as Serial and PS/2. The data transmission specifications are one of the interface standards used to connect a computer to peripheral devices. These specifications include USB 1.0, 1.1, 2.0 and 3.0. It is appropriate to support peripheral devices that require high data rates such as an AV device, secondary HDD or CD-RW. The higher the version (e.g. USB 3.0), the higher the data rate provided. Windows Media Player A multimedia program included with Windows. Using this program, you can play a media file, create an audio CD, listen to a radio broadcast, search and manage media files, and copy files to a portable device, etc.
