Tips and information for comfortable use
Computer users may complain of eyestrain and headaches after prolonged use.
Users are also at risk of physical injury after long hours of working in front of a
computer. Long work periods, bad posture, poor work habits, stress,
inadequate working conditions, personal health and other factors greatly
increase the risk of physical injury.
Incorrect computer usage may lead to carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis,
tenosynovitis or other musculoskeletal disorders. The following symptoms may
appear in the hands, wrists, arms, shoulders, neck or back:
•
•
•
•
numbness, or a burning or tingling sensation
aching, soreness or tenderness
pain, swelling or throbbing
stiffness or tightness
vii
•
coldness or weakness
If you have these symptoms, or any other recurring or persistent discomfort
and/or pain related to computer use, consult a physician immediately and
inform your company's health and safety department.
The following section provides tips for more comfortable computer use.
Finding your comfort zone
Find your comfort zone by adjusting the viewing angle of the monitor, using a
footrest, or raising your sitting height to achieve maximum comfort. Observe
the following tips:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
refrain from staying too long in one fixed posture
avoid slouching forward and/or leaning backward
stand up and walk around regularly to remove the strain on your leg
muscles
take short rests to relax your neck and shoulders
avoid tensing your muscles or shrugging your shoulders
install the external display, keyboard and mouse properly and within
comfortable reach
if you view your monitor more than your documents, place the display at
the center of your desk to minimize neck strain
Taking care of your vision
Long viewing hours, wearing incorrect glasses or contact lenses, glare, excessive
room lighting, poorly focused screens, very small typefaces and low-contrast
displays could stress your eyes. The following sections provide suggestions on
how to reduce eyestrain.
viii
Eyes
•
•
•
Rest your eyes frequently.
Give your eyes regular breaks by looking away from the monitor and
focusing on a distant point.
Blink frequently to keep your eyes from drying out.
Display
•
Keep your display clean.
•
•
•
•
•
Keep your head at a higher level than the top edge of the display so your
eyes point downward when looking at the middle of the display.
Adjust the display brightness and/or contrast to a comfortable level for
enhanced text readability and graphics clarity.
Eliminate glare and reflections by:
•
placing your display in such a way that the side faces the window or
any light source
•
•
•
•
•
minimizing room light by using drapes, shades or blinds
using a task light
changing the display's viewing angle
using a glare-reduction filter
using a display visor, such as a piece of cardboard extended from the
display's top front edge
Avoid adjusting your display to an awkward viewing angle.
Avoid looking at bright light sources, such as open windows, for extended
periods of time.
Developing good work habits
Develop the following work habits to make your computer use more relaxing
and productive:
•
Take short breaks regularly and often.
•
•
•
Perform some stretching exercises.
Breathe fresh air as often as possible.
Exercise regularly and maintain a healthy body.
Warning! We do not recommend using the computer on a couch
or bed. If this is unavoidable, work for only short periods, take
breaks regularly, and do some stretching exercises.
Note: For more information, please refer to “FCC notice” on page

Optical drive
Your computer may come with a CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, DVD/CD-RW combo,
DVD-Dual or DVD-Super multi drive. This drive is located on the front panel of
your computer. The CD drive allows you to play different types of compact disks
(CDs). The DVD drive allows you to play not only old CD-ROMs, CD-I disks, and
video CDs, but digital video disks (DVDs) as well. DVD-ROM is a type of disk
media with enough storage space for a full-length movie. The CD-RW, DVDDual and DVD-super multi drive allow you to record or burn recordable and
rewritable disks.
CDs and DVDs, like diskettes, are also compact, lightweight and easy to carry
around. However, they are more delicate than diskettes and must be handled
with extra care.
To insert a CD or DVD into your computer's CD or DVD drive:
1.
Gently push the Eject button located on the front panel.
2.
When the disk tray slides open, place the CD or DVD gently on the tray.
Make sure that the label or title side of the disk is facing upward.
When holding a disk, hold it by the edges to avoid leaving smudges
or fingerprints.
3.
Push the tray and it will close automatically.
Taking care of your CDs and DVDs
•
Keep your disk in its case when not in use to avoid scratches or other
damage. Any kind of dirt or damage can affect the data on the disk, impair

the disk lens reader on the CD or DVD drive, or stop the computer from
successfully reading the disk.
•
When handling disks, always hold them by the edges to avoid smudges
or fingerprints.
•
When cleaning disks, use a clean, dust-free cloth and wipe in a straight line
from the center to the edge. Do not wipe in a circular motion.
•
Clean your CD or DVD drive periodically. You may refer to the Cleaning Kit
for instructions. Cleaning kits can be purchased in any computer or
electronics shop.

2 Setting up your computer
Arranging a comfortable work area
Take note of the following when selecting a location for your computer:
•
Do not put your computer near any equipment that might cause
electromagnetic or radio frequency interference, such as radio
transmitters, televisions, copy machines or heating and air-conditioning
equipment.
•
Avoid dusty areas and extremes of temperature and humidity.
•
You may place your computer beside your desk or under your table, as
long as it does not block the space you need for working and moving.
•
To place your PC in a vertical position (for selected models) :
•
Rotate the plastic stabilizers on the side of your computer.
•
Ensure the plastic stabilizers are extended completely.
Positioning your monitor
Place your monitor at a comfortable viewing distance, usually 50 to 60 cm away.
Adjust the display in such a way that the top of the screen is at or slightly below
eye level.
Positioning your keyboard
The location of the keyboard is a very important factor for your posture.
Placing it too far away will make your body lean forward, forcing you to sit
in an unnatural position. Placing it too high will add tension to your
shoulder muscles.
•
The keyboard should be placed just above your lap. Adjust the keyboard
height by flipping the folding stands located under the keyboard.
•
Keep your lower arms parallel to the floor as you type. Your upper arms
and shoulders should be relaxed. Then try typing with a light touch. If you
feel any shoulder or neck strain, stop for a while and check your posture.
•
Position your keyboard in front of your monitor. Putting your keyboard
beside your monitor will make you turn your head while you type which
could add tension to your neck muscles.
Positioning your mouse
•
The mouse should be placed on the same surface as your keyboard so that
you can reach it with ease.
•
Adjust its position to allow enough space for movement without making
you stretch or lean over.
•
Use your arm to move the mouse. Do not rest your wrist on the table when

The radiated output power of the wireless LAN Card and Bluetooth card is far
below the FCC radio frequency exposure limits. Nevertheless, the PC series shall
be used in such a manner that the potential for human contact during normal
operation is minimized as follows:
1
This device is restricted to indoor use due to its operation in the 5.15 to
5.25 GHz frequency range. FCC requires this product to be used indoors for
the frequency range 5.15 to 5.25 GHz to reduce the potential for harmful
interference to co-channel Mobile Satellite systems.

High power radar are allocated as primary users of the 5.25 to 5.35 GHz
and 5.65 to 5.85 GHz bands. These radar stations can cause interference
with and/or damage this device.
3
An improper installation or unauthorized use may cause harmful
interference to radio communications. Also any tampering of the internal
antenna will void the FCC certification and your warranty.
