Precautions for Operating System Support
If a problem occurs because of the reinstallation of other operating systems(OS) or a
previous version of a OS pre-installed on this computer, or a software that does not
support the OS, the company will not provide technical support, a replacement or
refund, and if our service engineer visits you due to this problem, a service charge will
be applied.
Performance Restrictions
z Online games and some games(3D,2D) may not be supported and Full HD video
and some high bit rate HD video playback may be slow and stutter on this computer.
x There is one memory slot provided on this computer. It supports 2GB memory
max. To upgrade to 2GB memory, replace the current memory with a 2GB memory
module.
About the Product Capacity Representation Standard
About HDD Capacity Representation
The capacity of the storage device (HDD, SSD) of the manufacturer is calculated
assuming that 1KB=1,000 Bytes.
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 Solution 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)
Recovery Solution Representation (Optional)
Q. What is a Recovery Area?
A.- Samsung computers have an additional partition to recover computers or save
backup files. (Only for models with the Samsung Recovery Solution.) This partition is called a Recovery Area and it includes a recovery image that
comprises of the OS and application programs.
- You can either double-click the Samsung Recovery Solution icon on the desktop
or press F4 while booting the computer to enter the Recovery Area. Then you
can back up the present computer state or recover the computer from backed up
images.
- For deleting the Recovery Area, you need to use an additional Recovery Area
Removal Tool. After deleting the recovery area, you can use the newly created
partition for other uses, such as for saving personal data. Be careful that once the
recovery area is deleted, the Samsung Recovery Solutions will not work anymore.
Q. T
he capacity representation of the hard disk drive(HDD) in Windows is
different from the product specifications.
A.- The capacity of the storage device (HDD) of the manufacturer is calculated
assuming that 1KB=1,000 Bytes. 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. This is due to the difference in capacity calculation and does not
mean the installed HDD is different from the product specifications.
- The capacity representation in Windows may be smaller than the actual capacity
because some programs occupy a certain area of the HDD outside of Windows.
- For models with Samsung Recovery Solution, the HDD capacity representation
in Windows may be smaller than the actual capacity because Samsung Recovery
Solution uses a hidden area of about 5~20GB of the HDD to save the recovery
image, and that hidden area is not counted towards the total size available to
Windows. The size of Samsung Recovery Solution varies by models because of the
different size of applied programs.

Cautions on Preventing Data Loss (Hard Disk Management)
Take care not to damage the data on a
hard disk drive.
Causes that may damage the data of a
hard disk drive and the hard disk drive
itself.
A hard disk drive is so sensitive to
external impact that an external impact
may cause loss of data on the surface
of the disk.
The data may be lost when an external
impact is applied to the disk while
disassembling or assembling the
computer.
Take extra care, because moving the
computer or an impact on the computer
when it is turned on may damage the
data of the hard disk drive.
The data may be lost when the
computer is turned off or reset by a
power failure while the hard disk drive is
operating.
The company is not liable for any loss
of any data caused by a customer’s
careless usage or bad environmental
conditions.
The data may be lost and irrecoverable
due to a computer virus infection.
The data may be lost if the power is
turned off while running a program.
Moving or causing an impact to the
computer while the hard disk drive
is operating, may cause files to be
corrupted or bad sectors on the hard
disk.
To prevent data loss due to damage to the hard disk drive, please backup your
data frequently.
23

Wireless Guidance
(If fitted with 2.4G band or 5G band)
Low power, Radio LAN type devices (radio frequency (RF) wireless communication
devices), operating in the 2.4GHz/5GHz Band, may be present (embedded) in your
notebook system. The following section is a general overview of considerations while
operating a wireless device.
Additional limitations, cautions, and concerns for specific countries are listed in the
specific country sections (or country group sections). The wireless devices in your
system are only qualified for use in the countries identified by the Radio Approval Marks
on the system rating label. If the country you will be using the wireless device in, is not
listed, please contact your local Radio Approval agency for requirements. Wireless
devices are closely regulated and using them may not be allowed.
The RF field strength of the wireless device or devices that may be embedded in your
notebook are well below all international RF exposure limits as known at this time.
Because the wireless devices (which may be embedded into your notebook) emit less
energy than is allowed in radio frequency safety standards and recommendations,
manufacturer believes these devices are safe for use. Regardless of the power levels,
care should be taken to minimize human contact during normal operation.
Some circumstances require restrictions on wireless devices. Examples of common
restrictions are listed on the next page:
33
Radio frequency wireless communication can interfere with equipment on
commercial aircraft. Current aviation regulations require wireless devices to be
turned off while traveling in an airplane. 802.11ABGN (also known as wireless Ethernet or Wifi) and Bluetooth
communication devices are examples of devices that provide wireless
communication.
In environments where the risk of interference to other devices or services is
harmful or perceived as harmful, the option to use a wireless device may be
restricted or eliminated. Airports, Hospitals, and Oxygen or flammable gas laden
atmospheres are limited examples where use of wireless devices may be restricted
or eliminated. When in environments where you are uncertain of the sanction to use
wireless devices, ask the applicable authority for authorization prior to use or turning
on the wireless device.
Every country has different restrictions on the use of wireless devices. Since your
system is equipped with a wireless device, when traveling between countries with
your system, check with the local Radio Approval authorities prior to any move or
trip for any restrictions on the use of a wireless device in the destination country.
If your system came equipped with an internal embedded wireless device, do not
operate the wireless device unless all covers and shields are in place and the
system is fully assembled.
Wireless devices are not user serviceable. Do not modify them in any way.
Modification to a wireless device will void the authorization to use it. Please contact

shuts down after saving the data.
The battery residual amount may
vary depending on the computer
model.
Battery Lifetime Information
A battery is an expendable supply,
so when using it over a long time, the
capacity/battery life is shortened. If the
battery life is reduced to under half of its
initial time, we recommend purchasing a
new battery.
When not using the battery for a long
time, store the battery after charging it to
30-40% of its capacity. This extends the
battery life time.
104
Extending the Battery Usage Time
Decreasing the LCD Brightness
Using the Battery Calibration
Function
Press the Fn +
keys on the keyboard
to decrease the LCD brightness to extend
the battery usage time.
If you turn off unused devices, battery
usage time will improve.
When charging/discharging the battery
repeatedly for a short time only, the
battery usage time may be reduced by
the difference between the actual battery
charge and the remaining charge display.
In this case, the actual battery charge
and the remaining charge display will
be the same by discharging the battery
completely using the Battery Calibration
function, and then recharging it again.

A2If a network key (encryption key) is
used, the AP (Access Point) and
wireless Ad-Hoc network keys must
be the same.
The AP network key can be
configured using an AP management
program. For more detailed
information, ask your network
administrator or product provider.
141
For Windows XP, double-click the
icon and check if the IP address is
properly allocated on the Support
tab.
If the IP is not allocated properly, the
IP address will be displayed as follows
(e.g. 169.254.xxx.xxx).
If the network does not provide DHCP,
you have to specify the correct IP
address by asking your network
administrator.
Even if the network provides DHCP,
the server may not allocate an IP
address to the client properly, and the
client station cannot connect to the
network.
 Check the AP Settings
For the AP settings, refer to the
User Guide provided by the AP
manufacturer.
A3Verify whether the AP is operating
properly.
 When the AP is not operating
normally, turn off the AP, wait a short
while, and turn it on again.
 Verify whether the AP’s firmware is
the most recent version. (Contact the
AP manufacturer or the place where
you purchased the AP for details of
the AP firmware.)
A4Verify whether the AP has been
properly connected to the network.
Verify whether the network is
operating normally by connecting
the wired network cable, which has
been connected to the AP, to your
computer.
A5Check the network key settings
(encryption key) again. When
automatic code conversion (a
passphrase function) has been
selected and data communication
is not functioning even with a
normal wireless connection, it is
recommended entering the network
key (encryption key) manually.
A2Verify whether the environment
is suitable for using a wireless
LAN. The use of a wireless LAN
may be restricted according to the
environment and distance. Obstacles
such as walls or doors affect the use
of a wireless LAN. Install the AP in a
high and open space, 50cm from the
wall and far removed from any other
radio signal sources.
142
A6Check the AP settings as follows.
(The following is recommended for
a standard environment and thus
may differ according to the specific
wireless network environment.)
 When several APs are present
simultaneously, check the channel
settings for each AP. When different
APs are using nearby channels,
interference may occur between the
electronic waves. Set the AP channels
further apart from each other. (Ex:
Ch1, Ch5, Ch9, Ch13)
 When an AP’s SSID (Service Set ID)
option is set to “Hide”, you cannot
search for that AP on the computer.
We recommend unselecting the
“Hide” option for the AP. The SSID is
a name used for distinguishing one
wireless LAN from another wireless
LAN.
 It is recommended using Long
Preamble. Preamble is a signal for
data transmission synchronization.
Short Preamble may be supported
by some types of APs but may cause
compatibility problems.
 It is recommended using a static IP.
 Since static channel selection is more
reliable than auto channel selection,
it is recommended using a static
channel.
143
Q
I have set the same IP address
for both the wireless and wired
connections, but they do not work
properly.
A You cannot use wireless and wired
connections using the same IP
address. To sequentially use both the
wired and wireless connections with
the same IP address, you need to set
the currently not needed connection
to Do Not Use in the Network
Connections of the Control Panel.
Q
The wireless LAN does not
work properly when there is a
device operating on an adjacent
frequency in the vicinity of the
product.
A1 Channel interference may occur when
a wireless video transceiver or a
microwave oven is being used. If you
experience channel interference from
other equipment, we recommended
changing the channel for connecting
to the AP. For more information about
AP settings, refer to the User Manual
supplied by the AP manufacturer.
A2Since IEEE802.11g equipment
operates in hybrid mode when there
is active IEEE802.11b equipment, the
data rate may be degraded.

operating system knows the hardware
information and controls the hardware.
In general, a driver is supplied with the
corresponding hardware device.
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.
DVD (Digital Versatile Disk)
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.
Icon
This refers to a small image that
represents a file that users can use.
LAN (Local Area Network)
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 XP uses
TCP/IP as the default protocol.

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.
Power Schemes
This refers to a pre-determined power
management option group. For example,
you can set the time the computer waits
before entering Standby Mode, or before
the monitor or hard drive turns off. The
settings are saved as a power scheme.
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

155
Shared Folder
A folder that can be used by other users
on the network.
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.
SSD (Solid State Disk)
This refers to a device that saves
information to semiconductors unlike a
normal hard disk drive (HDD). There are
two types of SSD. One saves data to
the DRAM and the other saves data to
the Flash Memory. Since there are no
mechanical parts, an SSD provides a
much better performance than an HDD.
Especially, a Flash Memory-Type SSD
provides high reliability and durability.
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. While USB 1.1 supports 12Mbps
(12 million bits per second), USB 2.0
supports a data rate that is 40 times
(480Mpbs) faster than that of USB 1.1.
The data rate of USB 2.0 is equivalent to
that of IEEE1394. Therefore USB 2.0 is
used for A/V devices supported by IEEE
1394 and a 2nd HDD and CDRW that
require a high data rate.
Network Administrator
A user who plans, configures and
manages network operations.
Sometimes, a network administrator is
called a system administrator.
