Safety Instructions
Please follow the instructions in this section for the safe operation of your
notebook:
Do not allow small children to play unattended with electrical equipment.
Children are incapable of judging potential risks properly.

Keep the packing materials, such as plastic sheet away from children. The
danger of suffocation could arise in the case of misuse.

Do not open the case of the notebook, the battery or the power adaptor.
When the case is open there is a danger of severe electric shock.

Do not insert objects through the slots and openings of the notebook. This
may lead to electric shock, electrical short-circuit or fire that will damage
your notebook.

Slots and openings in the notebook serve to ventilate it. Do not cover up
these openings, because the notebook could overheat.

The notebook is not intended to be operated in a heavy industry company.
Operation under extreme environmental conditions can result in damage to
your notebook.

Do not operate the notebook during a thunderstorm, in order to avoid
damage through lightning strike.

Never place objects on top of the notebook that would exert any pressure
on the display. There is a danger that even slight pressure may break the TFT
display.

There is a risk of injury if the TFT display breaks. Use protective gloves to
pack up the broken pieces and contact customer service to arrange for
proper disposal. It is important to thoroughly wash your hands after
handling a broken TFT display. There is a chance that chemicals may have
been released.

To avoid damage to the TFT Display, never open it more than 120º. Do not
forcibly open it.

In order to avoid damage to the display, do not touch it with your fingers or
sharp objects.

Never lift the notebook by the TFT Display; doing so could break the hinges.

Switch off your Notebook 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 Notebook is damaged or fluids have leaked into it.
Have the Notebook checked by customer service first, because the Notebook
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.
Set-Up Location
4

Keep your notebook and all connected peripherals away from moisture,
dust, heat and direct sunlight. Failure to do so can lead to Notebook
malfunction or damage.

It is highly recommended you do not use the notebook outdoors.

Operate the notebook and all peripherals on a stable, balanced and
vibration-free surface.

Do not leave the base of your notebook on your lap or any part of your body
for a long period of time. The notebook can become very warm while it is
turned on or charging and can cause discomfort or injury from heat
exposure.

In the first hours of operation, new devices may emit a typical, unavoidable
but completely harmless smell, which will decline increasingly in the course
of time. We recommend that you ventilate the room regularly, in order to
counteract the formation of the smell. During the development of this
product, we have made sure that the applicable limits are clearly lowered.
Safety Instructions

When powered off, the notebook can be stored at temperatures between
32° and 140° F (0° and 60° C).

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 notebook from being damaged
by power peaks or lightning strikes through the power network.

Wait until the notebook has reached ambient (room) temperature before
turning it on or connecting it to the power adapter. Drastic variations in
temperature and humidity can create condensation within the Notebook
and may cause it to short-circuit.

For transporting the notebook keep the original packing.
Safety
The notebook is most reliably operated at an ambient temperature between
+41° (5° C) and +95° F (35° C) and at a relative humidity between 20% and
70% (without condensation).

Working in Comfort
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.
6

Back – While sitting at your work surface, make sure your back is supported
by the chair’s backrest in an erect position or angled slightly backwards.

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.

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.

Head – Your head should be upright or tilted slightly forward. Avoid
working with your head or trunk twisted.

Overall – Change your position frequently and take regular breaks to avoid
fatigue.

Connecting
Pay attention to the following information, in order to connect your notebook
correctly:

The electric outlet must be in the vicinity of the notebook and within reach
of the power adapter cables.

To disconnect your notebook from the power source, or set the notebook to
battery operation, remove the power cord from the notebook’s power
socket.

Only use the notebook with a power adaptor operating at
AC 110-240V~/50-60 Hz. For details on power consumption, please refer to
the rating plate on the rear of your notebook. If you are unsure of the type
of power supply available at the point of use, ask your local power
company.

Use only the supplied power cord and power adapter.

To provide additional protection against electric shock, power surges,
lightning strikes, or other electrical damage to your notebook, we
recommend the use of a surge protector.

Firstly remove the plug, and then the connector of the notebook, from the
power source, if you want to detach the network adapter from the mains
power supply. A reverse sequence could damage the network adapter or the
notebook. Always hold the connector firmly when removing it. Never pull
on the power cord.

Power Management
Your notebook offers automatic and modifiable power saving functions that you
can use to maximize battery life and reduce overall operating costs. The power
saving modes are known as sleep mode and hibernate mode.
Sleep Mode
When in sleep mode, the contents of the RAM of your notebook are preserved
while practically all other components of your notebook are shut down, reducing
your power consumption to a minimum. By pressing any key on the keypad, you
can bring your notebook back to the fully operational state. You will restart at
precisely the line in which you were working prior to the interruption. The
computer takes less time to go into and come out of sleep mode, but uses more
power than hibernate mode.
Hibernate Mode
The hibernate mode is an alternative to a complete shutdown of the notebook. In
this mode all data from RAM (system and graphic data) are copied to the hard disk
as a file. As soon as the data has been safely saved, the notebook powers down.
When the notebook is switched on again, this file is written back to RAM by the
BIOS. In a few moments the notebook is in the exact state as when it was last used.
If while working on a document the notebook is closed (assuming the correct ACPI
setting), the notebook saves the data in RAM for you automatically. You will restart
at precisely the line in which you were working prior to the interruption. The
computer uses no power while it is in hibernate mode, but it takes a little longer for
the computer to go into and come out of hibernation compared to sleep.

The hard drive contains the operating system of the computer, other application
programs and backup files. These programs and files are pre-installed on your
notebook, so you may note that some of the space on your hard drive is already
taken.
The Windows operating system cannot use the full capacity of the hard drive,
which means that there will be a difference between the capacity that the BIOS
displays and what the operating system displays. The operating system of the
notebook, further application programs and backup files are located on the hard
drive and reduce its total capacity.
The hard drive is addressed as drive C and D.
Note
Never switch off the computer while the busy indicator is lit since this
may result in loss of data. A flickering hard drive display is your
indication that the notebook is accessing the hard drive.
Usually your hard disk is divided into more partitions. The configuration of your
hard drive can be displayed and configured under "Disk Management". To
familiarise yourself with the hard drive configuration, search Windows Help for the
key word "Disk Management".
In your first partition (C:\) you will find the operating system, application programs
and the users’ documents.
The second partition (D:\) serves for data security and contains additional drivers
(D:\Driver) and tools (D:\Tools) for your notebook.

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.
Handling
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.
Note
Components
The decoding software included with your Notebook 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.

Wireless LAN
Wireless LAN is an optional feature. This function allows you to create a wireless
network link with an access point or directly with another wireless-enabled PC.
Using the key combination Fn+F1 you can enable or disable the wireless LAN
function. A corresponding LED will light.
Warning!
Make sure the Wireless LAN option is switched OFF in any
environment where it might interfere with critical and sensitive
devices, e.g., on aircraft, in hospitals and other medical centres, etc.
Conditions
An access point is a wireless transmitter that communicates with your notebook
and controls access to the network connection (e.g., a home network or a
broadband connection such as DSL). Wireless access points are often found in
offices, airports, universities or Internet cafés. They offer access to networks or to
the Internet. Access authorizations are normally needed. A fee may be required to
use a public access point. To set up a wireless network to share Internet access,
files, and printers at home, you will need an access point, a router, and a
broadband (DSL or cable) modem. Some access points can also serve as a router
and/or a broadband modem. Check with your retailer or Internet Service Provider
to find the best solution for your needs. A link to another computer with wireless
LAN functionality can also be created without an access point. This will allow you
to share files, but you will need an access point and a router to share an Internet
connection. The wireless network connection works in accordance with the
IEEE 802.11n Standard (compatible with the 802.11b/g Standard). The 802.11a
Standard is also supported. If encrypted transmission is used, this must operate
according to the same principle on all devices. Encryption is a method of
protecting the network from unauthorized access. The transmission speed (max.
*
300 Mbp/s ) can vary according to the distance and loading of the partner.
*
300 Mbit/s is a gross value. A maximum of 75 Mbit/s will be achieved on the
application level. A WLAN router in accordance with the 801.11 standard will be
necessary, in order to be able to exploit the complete performance.

Troubleshooting within the Network
Why does an error message appear when I click on the network
environment?
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?
Handling
Maybe one of the used network boards works with a different
speed (e. g. 10 instead 100 Mbit/s) 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.
Components
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.

Bluetooth (optional)
Bluetooth wireless technology is designed to replace cables between devices, such
as your printer, keyboard, and mouse.
Bluetooth wireless technology operates over a short distance. Bluetooth devices use
radio transmission, which enables your computer, mobile phone, printer,
keyboard, mouse, and other devices to communicate with each other without
cables.
There are several uses for Bluetooth wireless technology, including, but not limited
to:

Creating a wireless connection to the Internet with a mobile phone.

Transferring files between computers or between a computer and another
device.

Printing to a Bluetooth wireless printer.

Using a Bluetooth wireless keyboard and mouse.

Joining a personal area network (PAN).

Synchronizing a personal digital assistant (PDA) to a computer or another
device using Bluetooth wireless technology.
The data transfer speed for Bluetooth wireless technology can be up to 700 kilobits
(Kbp/s) per second. The data transfer speed can vary depending on the device or
environmental factors. A Bluetooth device can transmit through walls, pockets, and
briefcases.
Since Bluetooth is using the same frequency range as WLAN, simultaneous use
might cause interference. If this should happen you can disable one service
temporary.
Using the key combination Fn+F2 you can enable or disable Bluetooth function.
Warning!
Make sure the Bluetooth option is switched OFF in any environment
where it might interfere with critical and sensitive devices, e.g., on
aircraft, in hospitals and other medical centres, etc.

Windows® 7 - News
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.

Improved Taskbar*
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

create a new e-mail message.
Improved Desktop*
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.
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*
Windows® 7 enables you to close, manage and use all devices through the "Devices
and Printers" central function.
All devices are displayed in a central position.
With the new Device Stage Technology, Windows® 7 even goes one step further in
device management. Device Stage helps you use all compatible devices connected
to your computer. Thanks to Device Stage, now you display the device status in
one single window and carry out often-used commands. You will even find pictures
of the devices here, easily enabling you to see which devices are connected. The
manufacturer of the devices can even adapt Device Stage. If the manufacturer of
your camera, for example, prepares an adapted version of Device Stage, you can
see the number of photos on the camera and receive links to useful information
when you link the camera to the notebook.

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 notebook 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.

Windows® 7 provides a useful function (System Restore) enabling the storage of
the so-called 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.

Handling
Electromagnetic Compatibility
Active matrix LCDs (TFT) with a resolution of 1680 x 945 pixel, which are in turn
composed of three sub-pixels each (red, green, blue), contain about
4.7 million addressable transistors. Because of this very high number of transistors
and their extremely complex production process occasionally defective or
incorrectly addressed pixels or sub-pixels may occur.
Components
ISO 13406-2 Class II
We, therefore, adhere to the clear and strict requirements of ISO 13406-2,
class II, for the warranty handling of all TFT display products. These requirements
are summarized below.
Appendix
Within ISO-standard 13406-2 the general requirements regarding pixel defects are
defined. Pixel defects are classified into three failure types and four failure classes.
Each individual pixel is made up of three sub-pixels in the primary colours (red,
green, blue).
Aid
There have been several attempts in the past to define the acceptable number of
defective pixels. But this can be difficult and varies widely between different
manufacturers.
Standards
101
Pixel structure
Rows
Blue
Green
Red
Types of Pixel Failures:

Type 1:
A constantly lit pixel (a bright, white spot), even though it is not addressed.
A white pixel is caused when all three sub-pixel are lit.

Type 2:
A pixel that does not light up (dark, black spot), although it is addressed

Type 3:
Abnormal or defective red, green or blue sub-pixels.
(E.g. constantly lit with half the brightness, one colour is not shining,
blinking or flickering, but not belonging to Type 1 or 2 Pixel Failures)
In addition:
A cluster of type 3 (= 2 or more defective sub-pixels in an array of
5 x 5 pixel). A cluster is an array of 5 x 5 pixel (15 x 5 sub-pixel).

(pixel), which amounts to a total of 1,31 million pixels. Based on one million pixels
this translates into a factor of about 1.31.
Class II type failure consequently allows for three defects each of type 1 and type 2
and 7 defects of type 3 and 3 cluster of type 3.
These cases are normally not covered by warranty.
If the number of failures exceeds the figures of any category mentioned above then
this may be covered by the warranty.
