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 lesser 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)
The actual capacity of storage device can be checked in the Main menu of the BIOS Setup, accessible by pressing F2 key during boot.
For further instructions on how to enter the BIOS Setup, refer to "Settings and Upgrade" in the User Guide.

Cautions on Preventing Data Loss
(Hard Disk Management)
Take care not to damage the
data on a hard disk drive.
■ 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.
■ 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 company is not liable for
the loss of any data caused
by customer such as the
carelessness usage or bad
environmental condition.
Causes that may damage the
data of a hard disk drive and the
hard disk drive itself.
■ The data may be lost when an
external impact is applied to
the disk while disassembling or
assembling the computer.
■ 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 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.

Wireless Guidance
Low power, Radio LAN type devices (radio frequency (RF) wireless communication devices), operating in the 2.4
GHz 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 use 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.
As a general guideline, a separation of 20 cm (8 inches) between the wireless device and the body, for use of a wireless
device near the body (this does not include extremities) is typical. This device should be used more than 20 cm (8 inches)
from the body when wireless devices are on and transmitting.
(This Statement is not applicable to UMPC(Ultra Mobile PC) such as PDA, Portable PC.)
This transmitter must not be collocated or operate in conjunction with any other antenna or transmitter except the installed
Bluetooth transmitter.
Some circumstances require restrictions on wireless devices. Examples of common restrictions are listed below:
26
■
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.
802.11B (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 manufacturer for service.
■
Only use drivers approved for the country in which the device will be used. See the manufacturer System Restoration Kit, or

Guide to the battery lifecycle
Using Battery Longer
The battery is an expendable item so its life gets shorter
when used for a long time. It is time to replace it when the
battery life is less than half of the figure when purchasing.
Using Samsung Battery Manager
If you won’t use the battery for a long time, discharge
it first for keeping. This will guarantee longer life of the
battery.
Samsung Battery Manager is a management program that
allows you to use the battery efficiently. You can select
the optimized power mode depending on the system
environment.
Click Start > All Programs > Samsung > Samsung
Battery Manager > Samsung Battery Manager.

be degraded in this mode.
This product displays the battery life in each power
mode. The higher the power saving effect increases, the
longer the graph bar is displayed.
When Using Games or Multimedia
General Mode
The system may not operate properly in maximum
battery mode. It is recommended to connect the AC
adapter to the system or to use the system in general
mode.
This mode is appropriate for the regular environment and
it optimizes the performance of the system and battery.
Maximum Performance Mode
Usage Mode of Samsung Battery Manager
This mode is appropriate for the environment that requires
maximum system performance. The battery life may get
shorter in this mode.
User Settings Mode
This mode allows you to configure the detailed settings.

Q
Q
I cannot hear the modem sound.
I cannot make a call using an extension line.
A1 Check that the telephone line is properly
connected to the modem.
A In general, the dial tone of a PBX or a digital
phone switching system is not a continuous
one, unlike that of a trunk line.
A2 Check that the modem driver is installed
properly.
Therefore, the modem may not make a call because
the modem mistakes the dial tone from a PBX or a
digital phone switching system as a busy tone. In this
case, complete the following procedures.
 Click Start > Control Panel > Performance
and Maintenance > System.
 Select Hardware tab > Device Manager >
Modems in the System Properties window,
and check if there is a yellow exclamation mark
on the installed modem icon. If there is, delete
the modem device driver and reinstall the
driver, because the yellow exclamation mark
represents a not properly installed driver.

A1 If there is a device nearby using the same frequency
band such as another wireless LAN device,
wireless video transceiver, microwave oven, plasma
bulb, etc., channel interference may occur. If you
experience interference from another device, it is
recommended changing the AP channel.
A2 When operating in EEE802.11g mode, if there is
a IEEE802.11b device operating nearby, you may
experience low data rates or even disconnection as it
operates in Hybrid mode.
▶ Check the authentication type.
A A connection may be disconnected after a period of
time if the “Use IEEE 802.1x network authentication”
option is selected when IEEE 802.1x authentication
is not being used.
View the properties of the corresponding AP in the
Wireless Network Properties. In the Authentication
tab, unselect the “Use IEEE 802.1x authentication in
this network” option.

limited by the surrounding environment and distance.
Obstacles such as walls and door mats affect the
quality of the wireless LAN signal. You have to install
an AP in a high, open position far away from any
other radio signal sources. If the AP is excessively
far away, or is installed at the end of a building and
you are attempting to use the wireless LAN from the
other end, you may not be able to use the wireless
communication normally because the signal is
blocked by obstacles between you and the AP (such
as a wall).
A2 Check if the AP operates properly. If the AP is not
operating properly, turn it off and on again and try
again.
A3 Check if the AP firmware is the latest version. (For
more information on the AP firmware, ask the AP
manufacturer or your product provider.)
A4 Check if the AP is properly connected to the network.
Connect the LAN cable from the AP to a computer
and check if the network is connected properly.
170
Q
Although a connection has been established, I
cannot connect to the Internet.
A5 Check the Network Key (Encryption Key) settings
again. If the automatic password converting function
(passphrase function) is enabled and the wireless
connection is normal but you cannot send data
over the connection, please enter the Network Key
(Encryption Key) manually.
▶ Check the TCP/IP settings.
A If you cannot connect to the Internet but you are
connected to an AP, check if the TCP/IP settings are
configured properly.
A6 Check the AP settings as follows.
If there are multiple APs running at the same time,
check the channel setting of each AP. If the interval
between the channels of the APs is narrow, you may
experience electromagnetic interference. Set the
channel numbers of the APs so that the internals
between the channels are maximized. (for example,
Ch1, Ch5, Ch9, Ch13) computer.
When you are not connected to an AP, an X mark
appears over the ‘Wireless Network Connections’
icon ( ) in the Taskbar. If you double-click the
icon, the Search for Wireless Connections window
appears. Reconnect to a wireless network referring
to the descriptions of Connecting to a Wireless
LAN in the Using the Network section.
It is recommended unselecting the Hide option of
the AP. SSID (Service Set ID) is a name used to
distinguish a wireless LAN from other wireless LANs.
When you are connected to an AP, an X mark
appears over the “Wireless Network Connections”
icon ( ) in the Taskbar. Double-click the icon and
check if the IP address is properly allocated on
the Support tab. If the IP address is not properly
allocated, the IP address will be displayed as follows;
(for example, 169.254.xxx.xxx).
It is recommended using Long Preamble. Preamble
is a signal for data transmission synchronization.
Although some APs support Short Preamble, there
might be a compatibility problem.
If your network does not support DHCP, you have
to manually configure an IP address by asking your
network administrator.
Because “Fixed” channel selection is more stable
then ‘Auto’ channel selection, “Fixed” channel
selection is recommended. It is recommended
not using the “Block Any” and “Any Connection
Block” functions. Although these functions block
connections at the client side when the network
name is Any or Blank, it may cause a compatibility
problem.
In addition, even if your network supports DHCP,
the Internet connection may not be available if the
DHCP server fails to allocate an IP address to your
computer.
For more information on the AP settings, see the
owner’s manual supplied with the AP.

IP address or IP address range as a Trusted IP
address. The IP address range for DHCP is 10.0.0.1
~ 10.255.255.254 if not specified.
Q
(For Intel PROSet) Although I have turned the
wireless LAN off using the Turn Off Wireless LAN
button in PROSet, the Wireless LAN LED is still
on.

179
Other Questions
Q
4GB memory is not recognized by Windows
correctly.
A This is due to a limitation in 32bit operating
systems that exists in notebook computers of
other manufacturers. Although the address space
of the 32bit operating system is 2³²= 4294967296
= 4,096MB = 4GB, all of it cannot be allocated
to memory, as some of it needs to be used for
other purposes by the operating system. Because
approximately 1GB of address space needs to be
allocated to other system resources such as the
BIOS, PCI Device, and VGA for a PC to operate
normally. Therefore, even if 4GB of physical memory
is installed, the address space allocated to memory
is limited to approximately 3GB.
Although users can upgrade their memory to 3 or
4GB, only 3GB is recognized even when 4GB of
memory is installed, and a memory upgrade to 4GB
is not recommended.

LCD (Liquid Crystal Display)
A security system used to protect an internal network
or intranet from external networks through an
authentication procedure.
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.
Hibernation Mode

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.
This refers to the right area of the Taskbar including
program icons such as the volume control, the power
options and the time.
Power Schemes
