Pressure or impact damage

Do not apply heavy pressure to the computer or subject it to any form of strong impact as this can damage the computer's components or otherwise cause it to malfunction.

Cleaning the computer

To help ensure long, trouble-free operation, keep the computer free of dust and dirt, and use care with all liquids around it.

Be careful not to spill liquids into the computer. If the computer does get wet, turn the power off immediately and let the computer dry completely. In these circumstances, you should get the computer inspected by an authorized service provider in order to assess the scope of any damage.

Clean the plastics of the computer using a cloth slightly dampened with water.

You can clean the display screen by spraying a small amount of glass cleaner onto a soft, clean cloth and then wiping the screen gently with the cloth.

Never spray cleaner directly onto the computer or let liquid run into any part of it. Never use harsh or caustic chemical products to clean the computer.

Moving the computer

While the computer is designed for flexible day-to-day usage, you should exercise a few simple precautions when moving it in order to help ensure trouble-free operation.

Make sure all disk/disc activity has ended before moving the computer.

User's Manual 1-12

Using your computer for the first time

Be sure to read the enclosed Instruction Manual for Safety and Comfort for information on the safe and proper use of this computer. It is intended to help you be more comfortable and productive while using a notebook computer. By following the recommendations in it, you can reduce your chance of developing a painful or disabling injury to your hand, arms, shoulders, or neck.

This section provides basic information to start using your computer. It covers the following topics:

Connecting the AC adaptor

Opening the display

Turning on the power

Initial setup

Use a virus-check program and make sure that it is updated regularly.

Never format storage media without checking its content - formatting destroys all stored data.

User's Manual 2-2

It is a good idea to back up the internal Hard Disk Drive or other main storage device to external media periodically. General storage media is not durable or stable over long periods of time and under certain conditions might result in data loss.

Before you install a device or application, save any data in memory to the Hard Disk Drive or other storage media. Failure to do so might result in data loss.

Connecting the AC adaptor

Attach the AC adaptor when you want to charge the battery or operate from

AC power. The battery pack must be charged before you can operate from battery power.

The AC adaptor can automatically adjust to any voltage ranging from 100 volts to 240 volts and to a frequency of either 50 hertz or 60 hertz, enabling you to use this computer in almost any country/region. The adaptor converts AC power to DC power and reduces the voltage supplied to this computer.

Always use the TOSHIBA AC adaptor that was included with your computer, or use AC adaptors specified by TOSHIBA to avoid any risk of fire or other damage to the computer. Use of an incompatible AC adaptor could cause fire or damage to the computer possibly resulting in serious injury. TOSHIBA assumes no liability for any damage caused by use of an incompatible adaptor.

Never plug the AC adaptor into a power source that does not correspond to both the voltage and the frequency specified on the regulatory label of the unit. Failure to do so could result in a fire or electric shock, possibly resulting in serious injury.

Always use or purchase power cables that comply with the legal voltage and frequency specifications and requirements in the country of use. Failure to do so could result in a fire or electric shock, possibly resulting in serious injury.

The supplied power cord conforms to safety rules and regulations in the region the computer is bought and should not be used outside this region. For use in other regions, buy power cords that conform to safety rules and regulations in the particular region.

Do not use a 3-pin to 2-pin conversion plug.

User's Manual 2-3

User's Manual

When you connect the AC adaptor to the computer, always follow the steps in the exact order as described in this User’s Manual.

Battery

This section explains battery types, use, recharging methods and handling.

User's Manual 4-12

Battery pack

When the AC adaptor is not connected, the main power source of the computer is this lithium ion battery pack, also referred to in this manual as the main battery.

On some models, the main battery provides power for the internal Real-

Time Clock (RTC) and calendar function and also maintains the system configuration while the computer is turned off. If the RTC lasting time completely runs out, the system will lose this information and the real-time clock and calendar will stop working.

Real-Time Clock (RTC) battery (supported by some models)

Some models are equipped with a dedicated Real-Time Clock (RTC) battery. This RTC battery provides power for the internal real-time clock and calendar function and also maintains the system configuration while the computer is turned off. If the RTC battery becomes completely discharged, the system will lose this information and the real-time clock and calendar will stop working.

You can change the Real-Time Clock settings in the BIOS setup utility.

Refer to Real-Time Clock

for further information.

The RTC battery of the computer is a lithium ion battery and must be replaced only by your dealer or by a TOSHIBA service representative. The battery can explode if not properly replaced, used, handled, or disposed of.

Dispose of the battery as required by local ordinances or regulations.

Care and use of the battery pack

This section provides the important safety precautions in order to handle your battery pack properly.

Refer to the enclosed Instruction Manual for Safety and Comfort for detailed precautions and handling instructions.

Charge the battery pack only in an ambient temperature from 5 through 35 degrees Celsius. Otherwise, the electrolyte solution might leak, battery pack performance might deteriorate, and the battery life might be shortened.

Charging the batteries

When the power in the battery pack becomes low, the DC IN/Battery indicator flashes amber to indicate that only a few minutes of battery power remain. If you continue to use the computer while the DC IN/Battery indicator flashes, the computer enters Hibernation Mode so that you do not lose any data, and automatically turn itself off.

User's Manual 4-13

You must recharge a battery pack when it becomes discharged.

Procedures

To recharge a battery pack, connect the AC adaptor to the DC IN 19V jack and plug the other end into a working outlet. The DC IN/Battery indicator glows amber while the battery is being charged.

Charging Time

The following table shows the approximate time required to charge an exhausted battery fully.

Battery type

Battery pack (32Wh, 4 cell)

Battery pack (45Wh, 4 cell)

Power off about 3 hours about 4 hours

Power on about 4 hours about 5 hours

Be aware that the charging time when the computer is on is affected by ambient temperature, the temperature of the computer and how you are using the computer. If you make heavy use of external devices for example, the battery might scarcely charge at all during operation.

User's Manual

Battery charging notice

The battery might not begin charging immediately under the following conditions:

The battery is extremely hot or cold (if the battery is extremely hot, it might not charge at all). To ensure the battery charges to its full capacity, charge it at room temperature of between 5°C to 35°C (41–

95°F).

The battery is nearly completely discharged. In this instance, leave the

AC adaptor connected for a few minutes and the battery should begin charging.

The DC IN/Battery indicator might show a rapid decrease in battery operating time when you try to charge a battery under the following conditions:

The battery has not been used for a long time.

The battery has completely discharged and been left in the computer for a long time.

In such cases, do the following:

1. Fully discharge the battery by leaving it in the computer with the power on until the system automatically turns itself off.

2. Connect the AC adaptor to the DC IN 19V jack of the computer, and to a wall outlet that is supplying power.

4-14

3. Charge the battery until the DC IN/Battery indicator glows white.

Repeat these steps two or three times until the battery recovers normal capacity.

Monitoring battery capacity

Remaining battery power can be monitored using the following methods:

Clicking the battery icon on the Windows Taskbar

Via the Battery Status in the Windows Mobility Center window

Wait several seconds to monitor the remaining operating time because the computer needs time to check the remaining capacity of the battery pack and then calculate the remaining operating time, based on this together with the current power consumption.

Be aware that the actual remaining operating time might differ slightly from the calculated time.

With repeated discharges and recharges, the battery capacity will gradually decrease. In view of this, it is noted that an often used, older battery will not operate for as long as a new battery even when both are fully charged.

Maximizing battery operating time

The usefulness of a battery depends on how long it can supply power on a single charge, while how long the charge lasts in a battery depends on:

Processor speed

Screen brightness

System Sleep Mode

System Hibernation Mode

Display power off period

Hard Disk Drive power off period

How often and for how long you use the Hard Disk Drive and external disk drives, for example, optical disc

How much charge the battery contained to begin with

How you use optional devices, such as a USB device, to which the battery supplies power

Whether you enable Sleep Mode, which can conserve battery power if you are frequently turning the computer off and on

Where you store your programs and data

Whether you close the display panel when you are not using the keyboard - closing the display saves power.

The environmental temperature - operating time decreases at low temperatures.

Whether you enable Sleep and Charge function

User's Manual 4-15

Batteries exhausted time

When you turn off the power of your computer with batteries fully charged, the batteries exhaust within the following approximate period.

Troubleshooting

TOSHIBA has designed this computer for durability, however, should problems occur you are able to use the procedures detailed in this chapter to help determine the cause.

You should become familiar with this chapter as knowing what might go wrong can help prevent problems from occurring in the first place.

Problem-solving process

If you observe the following guidelines, resolving problems will be much easier.

Stop immediately when you recognize a problem exists as taking further action might result in data loss or damage, or you might destroy valuable problem-related information that can help solve the problem.

Observe what is happening. Write down what the system is doing and what actions you performed immediately before the problem occurred.

Make a screenshot of the current display.

Also be aware that the questions and procedures described in this chapter are meant only as a guide, they are not definitive problem-solving techniques. In reality many problems can be solved simply, but a few might require help from TOSHIBA Support. If you find you need to consult others, be prepared to describe the problem in as much detail as possible.

Preliminary checklist

You should always consider the simplest solution first. The items detailed in this checklist are easy to fix and yet can cause what appears to be a serious problem:

Make sure that you turn on all peripheral devices before you turn on the computer - this includes your printer and any other external device you are using.

Before you attach an external device you should first turn off the computer, then when you turn the computer back on it recognizes the new device.

Make sure that all optional accessories are configured properly in the computer's setup program and that all required driver software has been loaded (refer to the documentation included with the optional accessories for further information on its installation and configuration).

User's Manual 6-1

Check all cables to ensure that they are correctly and firmly attached to the computer - loose cables can cause signal errors.

Inspect all connecting cables for loose wires and all connectors for loose pins.

Check that your disc media is correctly loaded

Always try to make detailed notes of your observations and keep them in a permanent error log - this helps you to describe your problems to TOSHIBA

Support. In addition, if a problem recurs, the log you have made helps to identify the problem faster.

Analyzing the problem

Sometimes the computer gives you clues that can help you identify why it is malfunctioning. In view of this, keep the following questions in mind:

Which part of the computer is not operating properly - keyboard, Hard

Disk Drive, display panel, Touch Pad, Touch Pad control buttons - as each device produces different symptoms.

Check the options within the operating system to ensure that its configuration is set properly.

What appears on the display? Does it display any messages or random characters? Make a screenshot of the current display and, if possible, look up the messages in the documentation included with the computer, software, or operating system.

Check that all connecting cables are correctly and firmly attached as loose cables can cause erroneous or intermittent signals.

Do any indicators light, if so, which ones, what color are they and do they stay on or blink? Write down what you see.

Do you hear any beeps, if so how many, are they long or short and are they high pitched or low pitched? In addition, is the computer making any unusual noises? Write down what you hear.

Record your observations so you can describe them in detail to TOSHIBA

Support.

Software The problems might be caused by your software or disk. If you cannot load a software package, the media might be damaged or the program might be corrupted. In these instances, try loading another copy of the software if possible.

If an error message appears while you are using a software package, you should refer to the documentation supplied with it as this usually includes a problem-solving section or a summary of error messages.

Next, check any error messages against the operating system documentation.

User's Manual 6-2

Hardware If you cannot find a software problem, you should then check the setup and configuration of your hardware. First run through the items in the preliminary checklist as described previously then, if you still cannot correct the problem, try to identify the source. The next section provides checklists for individual components and peripherals.

Before using a peripheral device or application software that is not an authorized TOSHIBA part or product, make sure that the device or software can be used with your computer. Use of incompatible devices might cause injury or might damage your computer.

Wireless Devices and your health

Wireless products, like other radio devices, emit radio frequency electromagnetic energy. The level of energy emitted by Wireless products however is far much less than the electromagnetic energy emitted by wireless devices like for example mobile phones.

Because Wireless products operate within the guidelines found in radio frequency safety standards and recommendations, TOSHIBA believes that

Wireless products are safe for use by consumers. These standards and recommendations reflect the consensus of the scientific community and result from deliberations of panels and committees of scientists who continually review and interpret the extensive research literature.

In some situations or environments, the use of Wireless products might be restricted by the proprietor of the building or responsible representatives of the organization. These situations might for example include:

Using the Wireless products equipment on board of airplanes, or

In any other environment where the risk of interference to other devices or services is perceived or identified as harmful.

If you are uncertain of the policy that applies on the use of wireless devices in a specific organization or environment (for example, airports), you are encouraged to ask for authorization to use the Wireless device prior to turning on the equipment.

Wireless LAN Technology

The wireless communication function of the computer supports some wireless communication devices.

Only some models are equipped with both Wireless LAN and Bluetooth functions.

User's Manual 7-4

Do not use the Wireless LAN (Wi-Fi) or Bluetooth functionalities near a microwave oven or in areas subject to radio interference or magnetic fields. Interference from a microwave oven or other source can disrupt

Wi-Fi or Bluetooth operation.

Turn off all wireless functionalities when near a person who might have a cardiac pacemaker implant or other medical electric device.

Radio waves might affect pacemaker or medical device operation, possibly resulting in serious injury. Follow the instruction for your medical device when using any wireless functionality.

Always turn off wireless functionality if the computer is near automatic control equipment or appliances such as automatic doors or fire detectors. Radio waves can cause malfunction of such equipment, possibly resulting in serious injury.

It might not be possible to make a network connection to a specified network name using the ad hoc network function. If this occurs, the new network (*) has to be configured for all computers connected to the same network in order to re-enable network connections.

* Make sure to use new network name.

User's Manual

Security

TOSHIBA strongly recommends that you enable encryption functionality, otherwise your computer is open to illegal access by an outsider using a wireless connection. If this occurs, the outsider might illegally access your system, eavesdrop, or cause the loss or destruction of stored data.

Radio Characteristics

Radio Characteristics of Wireless LAN module might vary according to:

Country/region where the product was purchased

Type of product

Wireless communication is often subject to local radio regulations.

Although Wireless LAN wireless networking products have been designed for operation in the license-free 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz band, local radio

7-5

regulations might impose a number of limitations to the use of wireless communication equipment.

Radio Frequency Band 5 GHz (5150-5850 MHz) (Revision a and n)

Band 2.4 GHz (2400-2483.5 MHz) (Revision b/g and n)

The range of the wireless signal is related to the transmit rate of the wireless communication. Communications at lower transmit range might travel larger distances.

The range of your wireless devices can be affected when the antennas are placed near metal surfaces and solid high-density materials.

Range is also impacted due to "obstacles" in the signal path of the radio that might either absorb or reflect the radio signal.

Radio Frequency Interference Requirements

This device is restricted to indoor use due to its operation in the 5.15 to

5.25GHz frequency range.

High-power radars are allocated as primary users (i.e. priority users) of the bands 5.25 to 5.35GHz and 5.65 to 5.85GHz and that these radars could cause interference and/or damage to LE-LAN devices.

Bluetooth wireless technology

Some computers in this series have Bluetooth wireless communication function which eliminates the need for cables between electronic devices such as computers, printers, and mobile phones. When it is enabled,

Bluetooth provides the wireless personal area network environment which is safe and trustworthy, that is quick and easy.

You cannot use the built-in Bluetooth functions of the computer and an external Bluetooth adaptor simultaneously. For reference, Bluetooth wireless technology has the following features:

Security

Two advanced security mechanisms ensure a high level of security:

Authentication prevents access to critical data and makes it impossible to falsify the origin of a message.

Encryption prevents eavesdropping and maintains link privacy.

Worldwide operation

The Bluetooth radio transmitter and receiver operate in the 2.4 GHz band, which is license-free and compatible with radio systems in most countries in the world.

Legal Footnotes

Non-applicable Icons

Certain computer chassis are designed to accommodate all possible configurations for an entire product series. Therefore, be aware that your selected model might not have all the features and specifications corresponding to all of the icons or switches shown on the computer chassis.

CPU

Central Processing Unit (CPU) Performance Legal Footnotes.

CPU performance in your computer product might vary from specifications under the following conditions: use of certain external peripheral products use of battery power instead of AC power use of certain multimedia, computer generated graphics or video applications use of standard telephone lines or low speed network connections use of complex modeling software, such as high end computer aided design applications use of several applications or functionalities simultaneously use of computer in areas with low air pressure (high altitude >1,000 meters or >3,280 feet above sea level) use of computer at temperatures outside the range of 5°C to 30°C

(41–86°F) or >25°C (77°F) at high altitude (all temperature references are approximate and might vary depending on the specific computer model - contact TOSHIBA support for details).

CPU performance might also vary from specifications due to design configuration.

Under some conditions, your computer product might automatically shut down. This is a normal protective feature designed to reduce the risk of lost data or damage to the product when used outside recommended conditions. To avoid risk of lost data, always make back-up copies of data by periodically storing it on an external storage medium. For optimum performance, use your computer product only under recommended conditions. Read additional restrictions in your product documentation.

User's Manual 7-13

Contact TOSHIBA technical service and support, refer to

TOSHIBA support

section for more information.

64-Bit Computing

Certain 32-bit device drivers and/or applications might not be compatible with a 64-bit CPU/operating system and therefore might not function properly.

Memory (Main System)

Part of the main system memory might be used by the graphics system for graphics performance and therefore reduce the amount of main system memory available for other computing activities. The amount of main system memory allocated to support graphics might vary depending on the graphics system, applications utilized, system memory size, and other factors.

If your computer is configured with more than 3 GB memory, the memory might be displayed as approximately 3 GB only (depending on the hardware specifications of the computer).

This is correct because the operating system usually displays the available memory instead of the physical memory (RAM) built into the computer.

Various system components (like the video adapter’s GPU and PCI devices like Wireless LAN, and so on) require their own memory space.

Since a 32-bit operating system cannot address more than 4 GB of memory, these system resources overlap the physical memory. It is a technical limitation that the overlapped memory is not available to the operating system. Even though some tools might display the actual physical memory built into your computer, the memory available to the operating system is still approximately 3 GB only.

Computers configured with a 64-bit operating system can address 4 GB or more of system memory.

Battery Life

Battery life might vary considerably depending on product model, configuration, applications, power management settings, and features utilized, as well as the natural performance variations produced by the design of individual components. Published battery life numbers are achieved on select models and configurations tested by TOSHIBA at the time of publication. Recharge time varies depending on usage. Battery might not charge while computer is consuming full power.

After going through many charge and discharge cycles, the battery loses its ability to perform at maximum capacity and needs to be replaced. This is a normal phenomenon for all batteries. To purchase a new battery pack, see the accessories information that is shipped with your computer.

User's Manual 7-14

Hard Disk Drive (HDD) Capacity

1 Gigabyte (GB) means 10 9 = 1,000,000,000 bytes using powers of 10.

The computer operating system, however, reports storage capacity using powers of 2 for the definition of 1 GB = 2 30 = 1,073,741,824 bytes, and therefore shows less storage capacity. Available storage capacity will also be less if the product includes one or more pre-installed operating systems, such as Microsoft Operating System and/or pre-installed software applications, or media content. Actual formatted capacity might vary.

LCD

Over a period of time, and depending on the usage of the computer, the brightness of the LCD screen will deteriorate. This is an intrinsic characteristic of LCD technology.

Maximum brightness is only available when operating in AC power mode.

Screen dims when the computer is operated on battery power and you might not be able to increase the brightness of the screen.

Graphics Processing Unit (GPU)

Graphics processing unit (GPU) performance might vary depending on product model, design configuration, applications, power management settings and features utilized. GPU performance is only optimized when operating in AC power mode and might decrease considerably when operating in battery power mode.

Total Available Graphics Memory is the total of, as applicable, Dedicated

Video Memory, System Video Memory and Shared System Memory.

Shared System Memory varies depending on system memory size and other factors.

Wireless LAN

The transmission speed over the wireless LAN and the distance over which wireless LAN can reach might vary depending on surrounding electromagnetic environment, obstacles, access point design and configuration, and client design and software/hardware configurations.

The actual transmission speed is lower than the theoretical maximum speed.

Copy Protection

Applicable copy protection standards included in certain media may prevent or limit recording or viewing of the media.

We specifically permit and encourage the inclusion of this software, with or without modifications, in commercial products.

We disclaim all warranties covering The FreeType Project and assume no liability related to The FreeType Project.

Finally, many people asked us for a preferred form for a credit/disclaimer to use in compliance with this license. We thus encourage you to use the following text:

"""

Portions of this software are copyright (C) <year> The FreeType Project www.freetype.org

All rights reserved.

"""

Please replace <year> with the value from the FreeType version you actually use.
