About this manual
Caution for the data
Product capacity representation
Samsung Electronics shall not be liable for any data loss. Please
take care to avoid losing any important data and back up your
data to prevent any such data loss.
Storage capacity representation
The capacity of the storage device (HDD, SSD) of the manufacturer
is calculated assuming that 1KB=1,000 Bytes.
Operating system and software
support
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.
For example, for an 80GB HDD, Windows represents the capacity
as 74.5GB, 80x1,000x1,000x1,000 byte/(1,024x1,024x1,024)byte =
74.505GB.
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.
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.
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.
Memory capacity representation
Recommended screen resolutions
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. For example,
for 1GB(=1,024MB) memory installed, Windows may report the
capacity as 1,022MB or less.
The recommended screen resolution for Windows is “FHD”
(1,920x1,080) and for Windows 8.1 is “QHD+” (3,200x1,800).
If you set the resolution higher than the recommended value, it
may result in problems with some applications, due to limitations
of the operating system.

Network & Internet
• When connected to a 100Mbps/1Gbps wired LAN , a
message appears informing the user of connection to
a 10Mbps/100Mbps wired LAN when the computer
wakes from sleep mode. This happens because
restoring the network takes about 3 seconds. When the
network is restored, the computer will be connected to
the 100Mbps/1Gbps LAN.
Wireless LAN
Connect the computer to a wireless network to use the Internet.
The descriptions below are for computer models with
a Wireless LAN card or device. A Wireless LAN device is
optional. The pictures in this manual may differ from the
actual product depending on the wireless LAN device
model.
• When the system is running on battery power, it may
take a few seconds for the connection to be established
when connecting a LAN cable. This is the result of
power saving features designed to reduce battery
consumption.
About Access Point (AP)
An Access Point (AP) is a network device that bridges wired
and wireless LANs and corresponds to a wireless hub in a wired
network. Multiple devices can be connected to an AP.
• When the system is running on battery power, the
speed of a wired LAN is decreased automatically
to reduce battery consumption. In this case, a
1Gbps/100Mbps LAN would function at the speed of a
100Mbps/10Mbps connection.

Troubleshooting
Touch screen resolution
Why is the capacity representation of the hard disk
drive (HDD) in Windows different from the product
specifications?
Text on the screen overlaps or looks small.
The capacity of the storage device (HDD or 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. The capacity representation in Windows may
be smaller than the actual capacity because some applications
occupy a certain area of the HDD outside of Windows.
If the font size is set too large or small, text may not fit or may not
be legible on the screen.
In this case, on the desktop, right-click any area and select
Personalize → Display → an option under Change the size of all
items → Apply → Sign out now.
Recovery
For models with the Recovery application, the HDD capacity
representation in Windows may be smaller than the actual
capacity because the Recovery application uses a hidden area of
5-20 GB 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 the Recovery application varies by model.
What is a Recovery Area?
The computer has an additional partition for restoring data
or saving backup files (only for models with the Recovery
application). This partition is called a Recovery Area and it
includes a recovery image comprised of the operating system and
applications.

Miscellaneous
What is a recovery image?
This refers to specifications about the operating system, drivers,
and software that are converted to a data image. It is required
to recover the computer and is embedded in the computer’s
HDD. However, this is not provided for storage devices where the
capacity is less than 64 GB, due to their small capacities.

Ergonomic tips
• Use an adjustable chair with firm, comfortable support.
• Adjust the height of your chair so that thighs are horizontal to
the floor and feet are flat on the floor.
Maintaining a proper posture during computer use is very
important to prevent physical injury. Improper or prolonged
keyboard use may result in repetitive strain injury. Viewing the
monitor screen for extended periods of time may result in eye
strain. Therefore, please follow these guidelines carefully when
setting up and using the computer.

Health and safety information
RF exposure or SAR information can viewed on-line at
http://www.fcc.gov/oet/ea/fccid/. This site uses this product FCC
ID number on the outside of the product. Sometimes it may
be necessary to remove the battery pack to find number. Once
you have the FCC ID number for a particular product, follow the
instructions on the website and it should provide RF exposure
information or values for typical or maximum SAR for particular
product.
Exposure to Radio Frequency (RF) Signals
Certification Information
This product can contain an embedded radio transmitter and
receiver. It is designed and manufactured not to exceed the
exposure limits for radio frequency (RF) energy set by the Federal
Communications Commission (FCC) of the U.S. government. These
FCC exposure limits are derived from the recommendations of two
expert organizations, the National Council on Radiation Protection
and Measurement (NCRP) and the Institute of Electrical and
Electronics Engineers (IEEE). In both cases, the recommendations
were developed by scientific and engineering experts drawn from
industry, government, and academia after extensive reviews of the
scientific literature related to the biological effects of RF energy.
For corresponding model only
The Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) is a measure of the rate of
absorption of RF energy by the human body expressed in units
of watts per kilogram (W/kg). The FCC wireless devices to comply
with a safety limit of 1.6 watts per kilogram (1.6W/kg).
SAR level of this device while operating can be well below the
maximum value. This is because the device is designed to operate
at multiple power levels so as to use only the power required to
reach the network. In general, the closer you are to a wireless base
station antenna, the lower the power output.
Before a new model is available for sale to the public, it must be
certified to the FCC that it does not exceed the exposure limit
established by the FCC. Evaluation per each model is performed
in positions and locations (e.g. at the bottom on the body) as
required by the FCC.
For body worn operation, this model meets the FCC RF exposure
guidelines when used with Samsung accessory designated for this
product. Non-compliance with the above restrictions may result in
violation of FCC RF exposure guidelines.
