Precautions (Battery Pack)

If the battery pack will not be used for a long period of time

(a month or more), charge or discharge (use) the battery pack until the remaining battery level becomes 30% to 40% and store it in a cool, dry place.

This computer prevents overcharging of the battery by recharging only when the remaining power is less than approx.

95% of capacity.

The battery pack is not charged when the computer is first purchased. Be sure to charge it before using it for the first time. When the AC adaptor is connected to the computer, charging begins automatically.

Should the battery leak and the fluid get into your eyes, do not rub your eyes. Immediately flush your eyes with clear water and see a doctor for medical treatment as soon as possible.

NOTE

The battery pack may become warm during recharging or normal use. This is completely normal.

Recharging will not commence if internal temperature of the battery pack is outside of the allowable temperature range (0 °C to 50 °C {32°F to 122 °F}). ( “Battery Power”) Once the allowable range requirement is satisfied, charging begins automatically. Note that the recharging time varies based on the usage conditions. (Recharging takes longer than usual when the temperature is

10 °C {50 °F} or below.)

If the temperature is low, the operating time is shortened.

Only use the computer within the allowable temperature range.

This computer has a high temperature mode function that prevents the degradation of the battery in high temperature environments. ( “Battery Power”) A level corresponding to a 100% charge for high temperature is approximately equivalent to an 80% charge level for normal temperature mode.

The battery pack is a consumable item. If the amount of time the computer can be run off a particular battery pack becomes dramatically shorter and repeated recharging do not restore its performance, the battery pack should be replaced with a new one.

When transporting a spare battery inside a package, briefcase, etc., it is recommended that it be placed in a plastic bag so that its contacts are protected.

Always power off the computer when it is not in use.

Leaving the computer on when the AC adaptor is not connected will exhaust the remaining battery capacity.

Saving Data on the Hard Disk

Do not expose your computer to shock.

Use care when handling your computer, shock may damage your hard disk or make your software applications and data unusable.

Do not power off your computer while software applications are running or hard disk drive indicator ( ) is on.

Properly shut Windows down to avoid problems.

Save all valuable data to floppy disks, etc.

Backing up data to floppy disks, etc. will limit damage should trouble occur to your computer or should you inadvertently change or erase data.

Use the security function for all important data.

( “Security Measures”)

Hard Disk Lock

When the Hard Disk Lock is set to [Enable], it is impossible to read/write data from/to the hard disk when the hard disk is installed in a different computer, since a password is also set for the hard disk. When the hard disk is returned to the original computer, you can read and write data as before. In this case, however, make the settings in the Setup Utility exactly the same as they were before the hard disk was removed. (Note that this Hard Disk Lock does not guarantee complete protection of data.) ( “Security Measures”)

Saving Data on Floppy Disks

Write-protect Tab

Write Enable

Write Disable

Do not power down your computer or press the disk eject button while the Multimedia pocket device indicator ( ) is on.

Doing so may damage the data on the floppy disk and render the floppy disk useless.

Use care when handling floppy disks.

To protect the data on your floppy disks or to prevent a floppy disk from becoming stuck in your computer, avoid the following:

• Sliding the shutter on the floppy disk manually.

• Exposing the floppy disk to a magnetic field.

• Storing the floppy disk in locations prone to high temperatures, low pitched noise, dampness, or dust.

• Applying more than one label on the floppy disk.

Confirm the contents of a floppy disk before formatting it.

Confirm that no important data is on the floppy disk, because all data on the floppy disk will be erased.

Use the write-protect tab.

This is a must for preserving important data. This prevents your data from being erased or overwr itten.

Computer Viruses

Users are advised to purchase the latest versions of virus protection software and use them regularly.

We recommend you run the software:

• When booting your computer.

• After receiving data.

We recommend that you check data received on disks or from external sources, such as data downloaded from the Internet, e-mail, etc. (For compressed files, uncompress them before running a check).

When Using Peripheral Devices

Pay strict attention to the following points to avoid damage to the computer, peripheral devices, cables, etc. Also, in addition to following this manual and the Reference Manual, carefully read the instruction manuals for the peripheral devices being used.

Use only peripheral devices that conform to the computer’s specifications.

Connect the devices properly, paying close attention to the condition and position of the connectors.

If a connection cannot be made easily, do not apply undue force; check once more to confirm the condition and position of the connector (alignment of pins, etc.) .

If the connector has holding screws, fasten the screws firmly.

Do not carry the computer with cables attached, and do not pull on the cables forcefully.

Hard Disk Backup Function

The hard disk backup function creates a backup area (storage area) on the hard disk. This area is to back up (store) hard disk contents or restore backed up contents to their original locations.

By backing up the data on your hard disk to a backup area, you can protect your data from loss or damage resulting from operational errors or other factors. Also, you can back up or restore hard disk contents using this computer alone, without having to use other media or peripheral devices.

At the time of purchase, the hard disk backup function is disabled. If you follow the procedure below to create a backup area, the hard disk backup function will be enabled, and you will be able to back up your data. Note, that once the backup function has been enabled, you will have to perform the reinstallation procedure to disable it again ( page 31).

The hard disk backup function cannot back up or restore data properly if there is a problem with the hard disk when the data is backed up or restored. Note that if an error occurs while data is being restored, whether as a result of an unexpected malfunction, incorrect operation, or other reason, the data in the hard disk (data before restoration) may be lost.

Matsushita Electric Industrial Co., Ltd. will bear no responsibility for any damages suffered by the user (including loss of data) as a result of the use of this function.

Preparing

Product Recovery CD-ROM (included)

Panasonic CD/DVD drive (optional: Confirm the latest information on optional products in catalogs, etc.)

Before Using a Hard Disk Backup Function

Disconnect or remove all peripheral devices (except for the CD/DVD drive), as the backup area may not be created properly while these devices are connected.

Be sure the AC adaptor is connected to the computer.

A backup area cannot be created if the hard disk is already divided into several partitions. Return the computer to its condition at the time of purchase (one partition only), and create the backup area.

To divide the partition, make the selection when the backup area is created ( page 36 step 8 ).

If the partition configuration is changed (partitions created, size changed, etc.) after the backup area has been created, it will no longer be possible to execute the backup function. To change the configuration, it is necessary to return the computer to its condition at the time of purchase, and then create the backup area again.

The hard disk backup function will only work for the internal hard disk. This function does not work with an external hard disk or the second hard disk (optional).

Backup and restore functions will not operate if the hard disk has been damaged.

Do not use the NTFS file system compression function, as this may result in insufficient capacity of the backup area.

If the hard disk malfunctions, it will be impossible to read the data stored on it. We recommend that you also back up important data to a location other than the hard disk (an external hard disk or other media).

Execute a disk error check using the following procedure.

1 Select [Local Disk(C:)] with the right button in [start] - [My Computer], and select [Properties].

2 Select [Check Now] from [Tools].

3 In [Check Disk], select [Start] without adding a check mark beside any of the items.

If a message is displayed indicating that there is an error in the disk, display [Check Disk], and add a check mark for [Automatically fix file system errors] and [Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors], select [Start], and check for disk errors again.

The hard disk backup function does not accommodate dynamic disks. Do not convert the hard disk to a dynamic disk.

NOTE

Regarding backup area

• Requires availability of at least half of the entire hard disk. Without sufficient space available, the backup area cannot be created.

• When the backup area is created, the usable hard disk capacity will be reduced to less than half.

• The backup area cannot be accessed from Windows. For this reason, backed up data cannot be copied to CD-R or other removable disk media.
