Operational Safety

Keep the packing materials, such as plastic sheeting away from children. The danger of suffocation could arise in the case of misuse.

Do not open the PC casing or use the PC with the casing removed. When the casing
is open there is a danger to life from electric shock.

Optical drives are Laser Class 1 devices. These lasers must remain in their sealed PC
casing. Do not remove the drive covers, as exposure to the lasers may prove harmful.

Do not insert objects through the slots and openings of the PC. This may lead to
electric shock, electrical short-circuit or fire that will damage your PC.

Do not cover the slots and openings in the PC casing. These openings are for ventilation purposes. Covering these vents may lead to overheating. Please keep free a
minimum distance of 20 cm on all sides when setting up the PC.
Switch off your PC immediately or do not switch it on at all and contact customer
service …

… if the power cord or the connectors attached to it are burnt or damaged. Replace
the defective power cord with an original power cord. Under no circumstances may
a defective power cord be repaired.

... if the housing of the PC is damaged or fluids have leaked into it. Have the PC
checked by customer service first, because the PC may not be safely operated otherwise and there may be a life-threatening risk of electrocution!
Data Security
Attention!
Every time you update your data make back-up copies on an external storage medium. The supplier does not assume liability for data loss or damage
to data storage units, and no claims can be accepted for damages resulting
from the loss of data or consequential losses.

Setting Up
Remember that choosing the proper location for your PC is just as important as connecting it correctly.
Set-up Location

Keep your PC and all units connected to it away from moisture, dust, heat and direct sunlight. Failure to observe these instructions can lead to malfunctions or damage to the PC.

To prevent damage to your PC from a fall, place and operate the PC and all connected units on a stable, balanced and vibration-free surface.
Ambient Temperature
-8-

The PC can be operated at an ambient temperature of between 10° and 35°C
(+41° and +95°F) and at a relative humidity of between 30% and 70% (without
condensation).

When powered off, the PC can be stored at temperatures between -20° and 50°C
(–40° and +158°F).

Unplug the cable during thunderstorms and make especially sure to remove the antenna cables, if present. We recommend the use of a surge protector for additional
safety, in order to protect your PC from being damaged by power peaks or lightning strikes through the power network.

Delay operating a PC after transport until the device has adjusted to the ambient
temperature. In situations of large temperature or humidity differences condensation may build up moisture inside the PC, which might cause an electrical short circuit.

Connecting
Note
Always position the monitor in a line of sight that runs parallel to the window front (see
picture).
You should also apply a parallel line of sight with respect to artificial lighting. This means
that in a room lit by artificial light essentially the same criteria and objectives apply. Should
it not be possible to arrange the monitor as outlined above, the following measures might
be helpful:

Turn, lower or incline the monitor.

Place horizontal or vertical shades at the windows.

Work in Comfort
Note
Take regular breaks from the work at your screen to prevent tenseness and
exhaustion.
Sitting in one position for long periods can be uncomfortable. To minimize the potential
for physical discomfort or injury, it’s important that you maintain proper posture.

Appendix
You should not position the monitor in close proximity to a window as this is usually the
brightest area of the room and may cause visual impairments during daylight hours.
Help
Operation
Ensure that the monitor is set up in such a way that reflections, glare and
light/darkness contrast are avoided.
Overall:
Change your position frequently and take regular breaks to avoid fatigue.
Back:
While sitting at your work surface, make sure your back is supported by the chair’s backrest. This should be in an erect position or angled slightly backwards.
Legs:
Your thighs should be horizontal or angled slightly downward. Your lower legs should be
near a right angle to your thighs. Your feet should rest flat on the floor. If necessary, use a
footrest, but double check that you have your seat height adjusted correctly before getting
a footrest.
Arms:
Your arms should be relaxed and loose, elbows close to your sides, with forearms and
hands approximately parallel to the floor.
Wrists:
Your wrists should be as straight as possible while using the keyboard, mouse or trackball.
They should not be bent sideways, or more than 10 degrees up or down.
Head:
Your head should be upright or tilted slightly forward. Avoid working with your head or
neck twisted.

Connecting IEEE 1394 (Fire Wire) Devices
Diagram reference: V
(optional feature)
Warning!
Connect your IEEE 1394 devices after initial set-up of your new PC. This
will prevent unnecessary confusion during installation. These devices can
generally be connected during operation. Read the manual for your peripheral device first.

The voltage outputs of your PC for IEEE 1994 are protected by a fuse (limited power
source according to EN60950). This ensures that a malfunction of the PC will not
damage the peripheral devices connected to the respective jacks.
Note
Take care to ensure that the connector and the socket fit exactly to avoid
damaging the contacts. Because of its asymmetric form the plug only fits
into the socket in one position.
1. Connect the IEEE 1394 cable to the IEEE 1394 port of your PC.
LAN Connection
Diagram reference: W
Your PC is equipped with a network connection, in order to prepare it for network operation.
The network cable usually has two RJ45 plugs so that it is unimportant which plug is connected to which jack.
1.
Connect the one plug of the cable to the PC jack.
2.
Connect the other plug to the other PC or hub/switch.
For further information refer to chapter “The Network” starting at page 44.

Regional Playback Information for DVD
The playback of DVD movies includes the decoding of MPEG2 videos, digital AC3 audio
data and the deciphering of CSS protected contents.
CSS (sometimes called copy guard) is the name of a data protection program incorporated
by the movie industry as an action against illegal copies.
Among the numerous regulations for CSS licensees the most important ones are the country specific playback restrictions.
In order to facilitate the geographically restricted release of movies, DVD titles are released
for certain regions.
Copyright laws require the restriction of each DVD movie to a certain region (usually the
region, in which it is sold).
DVD movie versions can be published in several regions but the CSS regulations require
that each CSS decipherable system may only be used in one region.
Attention!
The decoding software included with your PC may be changed for regional
DVD decoding up to five times, after which the drive will only play DVD
movies for the region setting last entered. Changing the region code after
that will require factory resetting which is not covered by warranty. If resetting is desired, shipping and resetting costs will be billed to the user.

What is a Network?
A network means connecting your PC to another or several other PCs. Users can transfer
information and data between computers and share resources such as printers, modems
and hard disk drives. Here are some practical examples:

You can exchange Email and manage appointments in an office.

Users share a printer in a network and save their data on a central server.


Troubleshooting within the Network
Why does the network environment not show the releases?
The network environment is delayed in time. Check the release by searching
for the respective computer name.
The computer name must be unique on the network and may not be the
same as the task group.
It appears that the network boards are unable to communicate. What might be the
problem?
Maybe one of the used network boards works with a different speed (e. g.
10 instead 100 Mbit) and your network computer is unable to recognize this.
If necessary, set the network driver to the compatible speed.
If two PCs should be linked you require a cross-link cable, otherwise use a
patch cable.
In addition, check the protocols and the configuration.
The data transmission is incorrect or very slow. What might be the problem?
Maybe you have the wrong cable (UTP / CAT3 or lower) or the problem is
the proximity of a power cord or another source of interference.
For further hints on troubleshooting refer to the Windows help under “Network errors”.

Getting to Know Windows® 7
With Windows® 7, Microsoft is launching the new operating system and successor to
Vista®.
Windows® 7 contains a number of innovative functions and technologies, enabling your
PC to work quickly and reliably, while being easy to use.
Windows® 7 - News
Improved Taskbar
The Taskbar at the bottom of the screen enables you to start programs and change between programs which are already running. Using Windows® 7, you can place any program in the Taskbar, so that it will always open with one single click. You can also arrange
the symbols on the Taskbar simply by clicking on them and dragging them to the desired
position. The symbols are also considerably bigger, so that they are easier to use. Moving
the cursor over the symbols will display miniatures of each file or each window open in the
program. Moving the cursor over the miniature displays a full-screen preview of the particular window. Moving the cursor away from the miniature closes the full-screen preview.
Jump lists
Jump lists offer a practical possibility when opening files which you have recently worked
on. To display recently used files, just right-click the application symbol on the Taskbar.
Right-clicking on the Word symbol will display recently used Word documents. You can
also easily place other files in the jump list if you would like to have them readily at hand,
in which case they will always be displayed. This allows you to access documents which
you use more frequently, with just a few mouse clicks.
The jump lists from a few programs, such as Windows® Media Player, can be filled in advance with frequently used commands. Thus, for example, the Windows® Media Player
jump list might contain options to play all music or to re-open the latest play list.
The Internet Explorer jump list displays frequently and most recently visited websites. For
certain programs, this enables rapid access commands which, in the past, could only be
retrieved from the program itself, such as the command to create a new e-mail message.
- 46 -
English
Windows® 7 makes the performance of everyday tasks even simpler. For example, the
Snaps function makes it easier than ever to compare two open windows. You do not need
to adjust the size of the open window for comparison. Simply pull the window, using the
mouse, to one of the edges at the side of the screen, and it will fill half the screen. Snap the
window on both sides, and it is already easier than ever to compare two windows.
If you would like to display all Desktop mini-applications, simply move the mouse into the
lower right hand corner of the Desktop. This makes all open windows transparent, so that
the Desktop and all the mini-applications located on it will be instantly visible.
Click on the Titlebar of the window, "shake" it, and all open windows will be displayed as
symbols on the Taskbar. "Shake" the window again, and the other windows will be displayed again.
Better device management
Safety
Connecting
Windows® 7 simplifies working with the windows on the Desktop. This provides you with
more intuitive possibilities for opening and closing, as well as for changing the size and for
rearranging.
Operation
Improved Desktop
Windows® 7 enables you to close, manage and use all devices through the "Devices and
Printers" central function.
Homegroup
With homegroups, a new function of Windows® 7, the linking of home computers is really
simple. A home network group is created automatically, for example, when you link the
first PC under Windows® 7 with the home network. The addition of additional PCs with
Windows® 7 to the home network group is quickly accomplished. You can indicate exactly
what should be released on each PC for all other PCs in the home network group. Finally,
the shared use of files on the various home PCs, and on many other devices, is so simple
that it is as if all files were located on one single hard drive. This allows you to store digital
photos on the computer in your home office and then enjoy easy access to them from a
laptop in any other room in the house. Similarly, the printer in home office is automatically
released for all PCs in the house, as long as they are all in the home network group.
Beginners and persons changing from other Windows versions systems are advised to read
this material carefully.

Windows Activation
Microsoft is committed to the protection of intellectual property rights and the reduction
of software piracy. Therefore Windows® 7 contains software-based product activation
technology. Your copy of Windows® 7 has already been activated for your PC.
Product activation is needed if some components of your PC have been replaced or you
use a non-authorized BIOS. If necessary you can activate Windows® 7 as often as requested.
You will probably need to activate Windows® 7 by telephone even if Internet Activation is
available. This is due to the pre-activated SLP version which runs with a special Product-ID.
However, activation needs your unique Product ID which can be found on the Certificate
of Authenticity sticker on your PC housing. When you call, please inform your agent that
you are running an OEM-(SLP) version of the software.

In few cases it may still be required to activate Windows® 7. If an activation via the internet
is acknowledged with an error message you should perform the following steps.
1. Please select the telephone activation and click until the related screen appears.
2. Now click on change product key. A new window appears. Enter the product key.
This is located on the Certificate of Authenticity (COA), on the computer’s casing.

System Restore
Windows® 7 provides a useful function (System Restore) enabling the storage of the socalled Recovery points.
The system remembers the current configuration as a snapshot and returns to this, if necessary. The advantage is that an unsuccessful installation can be cancelled.
Recovery points are created automatically by the system, but they can also be set manually.
You can determine and configure yourself the maximum memory taken up by this. You
find this program in the program file under Accessories  System Tools.
We recommend setting a recovery point before installing new software or drivers. At this
point if the system does not run properly this recovery point should enable you to return
to a workable configuration without deleting newly created documents. In the next paragraph you will find your options for the repair of an incorrect installation.
Correction
Windows® 7 includes various functions ensuring that the PC as well as the installed applications and devices work correctly.
These functions assist you in solving the problems which might occur by adding, deleting
or replacing files required for the functionality of the operating system, the applications
and devices. The recovery function or functions you use depend on the type of occurring
problem or error. For detailed information refer to the Windows help.
