Using your computer

Proper posture when using your Desktop PC

When using your Desktop PC, maintaining the proper posture is necessary to prevent strain to your wrists, hands, and other joints or muscles. This section provides you with tips on avoiding physical discomfort and possible injury while using and fully enjoying your Desktop PC.

Eye level to the top of the monitor screen

Foot rest 90˚ angles

To maintain the proper posture:

Position your computer chair to make sure that your elbows are at or slightly above the keyboard to get a comfortable typing position.

Adjust the height of your chair to make sure that your knees are slightly higher than your hips to relax the backs of your thighs. If necessary, use a footrest to raise the level of your knees.

Adjust the back of your chair so that the base of your spine is firmly supported and angled slightly backward.

Sit upright with your knees, elbows and hips at an approximately 90º angle when you are at the PC.

Place the monitor directly in front of you, and turn the top of the monitor screen even with your eye level so that your eyes look slightly downward.

Keep the mouse close to the keyboard, and if necessary, use a wrist rest for support to reduce the pressure on your wrists while typing.

Using the memory card reader

(Optional)

Digital cameras and other digital imaging devices use memory cards to store digital picture or media files. The built-in memory card reader on the front panel of your system allows you to read from and write to different memory card drives.

To use the memory card:

1. Insert the memory card into the card slot.

• A memory card is keyed so that it fits in only one direction. DO NOT force a card into a slot to avoid damaging the card.

• You can place media in one or more of the card slots and use each media independently. Place only one memory card in a slot at one time.

2. Select a program from the AutoPlay window to access your files.

• If AutoPlay is NOT enabled in your computer, click File Explorer from the Start menu, and then double-click the memory card icon to access the data on it.

• Each card slot has its own drive icon which is displayed on the File Explorer screen.

3. When finished, right-click the memory card drive icon on the Computer screen, click Eject, and then remove the card.

Never remove cards while or immediately after reading, copying, formatting, or deleting data on the card or else data loss may occur.

To prevent data loss, use “Safely Remove Hardware and Eject Media” in the Windows® notification area before removing the memory card.
