General Warnings

Do not operate your portable computer for an extended period of time with the base
resting directly on your body. With extended operation, heat can potentially build up in the
base. Allowing sustained contact with the skin could cause discomfort or, eventually, a
burn.

Excessive sound pressure from earphones or headphones can cause hearing damage or
loss. Please adjustment of the volume control as well as the equalizer to settings other
than the center position may increase the earphones or headphones output voltage, and
therefore the sound pressure level.

Do not attempt to service the computer yourself. Always follow installation instructions
closely.

To avoid personal injury from electric shock or fire:
-
Completely power down the computer when replacing memory modules, cleaning the
computer, its components, or chassis, or performing operations requiring similar steps.
To do this, first turn the power off at the power switch, remove the battery, and then
disconnect the AC adapter from the electrical outlet or from any other type of external
power source, such as an external battery.
-
Do not operate the computer near water, for example, near a bathtub, kitchen sink or
laundry tub, in a wet basement, by a swimming pool, or in the rain.

If you use an extension cord with your AC adapter, ensure that the total ampere rating of
the products plugged into the extension cord does not exceed the ampere rating of the
extension cable.

When using your power cord, make sure to position it around objects so it will not be cut or
punctured.

When you disconnect a cable, pull on its connector by its strain relief loop, not on the cable
itself. As you pull out the connector, keep it evenly aligned to avoid bending any connector
pins. Also, before you connect a cable make sure both connectors are correctly oriented
and aligned.

Be sure that nothing rests on your AC adapter‘s power cable and that the cable is not
located where it can be tripped over or stepped on.

Use only the AC adapters that are approved for use with this computer. Use of another
type of adapter may risk fire or explosion.

Before you connect the computer to a power source, ensure that the voltage rating of the
AC adapter matches that of the available power source.

TP Two-Finger Pivot Rotate
Pivot Rotate requires that the user place two fingers on the TouchPad and, while keeping the
first finger stationary, move the second finger along an arc of at least 30 degrees around the
first finger. Figure 5 depicts the anchor finger position (at the lower left) and a 90-degree arc.
We assume the fingers are at least 5 mm apart for comfort. To perform the gesture, the user
only needs to travel along 30 degrees of the arc and the starting position can be anywhere
from 5 to 85 degrees with respect to the TouchPad. (For simplicity, we show the full 0 to 90
degree range and use that range in the calculations. The difference for the present
calculations is negligible.)
To cover this range of Pivot Rotate motions requires an area of 35 mm wide × 35 mm high, as
shown in Figure 5.

enables you to make changes to the system configuration and tailor the operation of your
notebook to your individual work needs. A ROM-based configuration utility displays the
system‘s configuration status and provides you with a tool to set system parameters. The
separameters are stored in nonvolatile battery backed-up CMOS RAM, which saves this
information even when the power is turned off. When the computer is turned back on, the
system is configured with the values found in CMOS. Via easy-to-use menus, you can
configure such items as:

Boot devices
The settings made in the Setup program intimately affect how your notebook performs. It is
important, therefore, to first understand all the available options, and second, to make
settings appropriate for the way you use your notebook. This chapter guides you through
the Setup program by providing the clear explanations for all Setup options.
A standard configuration has already been set in the Setup program by the factory
technicians. However, eventually you may want to customize your system to suit your own
performance needs. It is recommended that you read this chapter and become familiar with
the configurations that can be made in the BIOS.
The next section explains how to move around in the Setup program, as well as how to
specify and save your new settings. A brief discussion of the optional settings among the
different submenus follows.
4.2 Navigating through the BIOS Setup Program

Accessing the BIOS Setup Program

Launching Submenus

Saving Changes and Exiting the Setup Program
The Setup program has been designed to make it as easy to use as possible. It is a menu
driven program, which means you can scroll through the various directories and make your
selections among the various predetermined choices. If you accidentally configure a setting,
use the BIOS hot keys to return to the previous value. The hot keys are discussed in more
detail later in this chapter.
When turning on your notebook for the first time you may be prompted to run the BIOS
Setup program. A warning message may appear on the screen if the hardware configuration
is changed or the POST fails. This message will inform you of any errors or invalid settings
and prompt you to run the Setup program to correct the problem.
Even if you are not prompted by a message instructing you to use the Setup program, at
some time in the future you may want to change the configuration of your notebook. It will
then be necessary to reconfigure your system using the Setup program so that your
notebook can recognize these changes.
The list below gives a few examples of reasons why you may want or need to run the BIOS
Setup program.

You have set up your notebook for the first time and you got a message stating that you
should run the BIOS Setup program.

You want to redefine the communication ports to prevent any conflicts.
The few examples listed above are by no means complete.
4.3 System Controls
4.3.1Buttons
4.3.1.1 Power Button
The activity of the power button is as follows:

If system is Off/Hibernate: System will be turned on while Power switch is
depressed by more than 100 ms

If system is in Standby state: System will resume while Power switch is
depressed by more than 100 ms.

If system on with legacy mode: depress this button will turn off power.
If system is running in ACPI OS, the power button acts as the sleep button, and let
OS controls the policy of power button which is defined in Power Option under the
OS.
4.3.1.2 Power Button Over-ride
Holding down the Power Button for 4 seconds will cause an unconditional transfer to
the off state without notifying the operating system.
4.3.1.3 Lid switch
If the system is running under legacy mode:

Closing the lid will turn off LCD backlight.
If the system is running under ACPI mode:

The operating system will determine what action to take when the lid is opened
and closed.
The function of lid switch will follow the OS setting in power management (Nothing,
Standby or Hibernate). If nothing, the backlight must turn off when the lid is closed.
4.3.2 System status indicators
Please refer to Keyboard BIOS specification.
4.4 Core BIOS Features
4.4.1Multi Boot
The notebook can support Multi-Boot for selecting the boot sequence of Hard Drive,
Removable Devices, CD-ROM/DVD Drive and Network in Setup.
4.4.2 Quiet Boot
Quiet Boot replaces the customary technical messages during POST with a more
visually pleasing and comfortable display (OEM screen). During POST, right after
the initialization of VGA, The notebook displays an illustration called the OEM screen
during system boot instead of the traditional POST screen that displays the normal
diagnostic messages.
The OEM screen stays up until just before the operating system loads unless:

<Esc> have no function on POST.

Pressing <F2> to enter Setup.

Pressing <F12> to enter Boot Menu.

Whenever POST detects a non-terminal error, it switches to the POST screen
near the end of POST, just prior to prompting for a password.

If the BIOS or an option ROM request keyboard input, the system switches over
to the POST screen with prompts for entering the information. POST continues
from there with the regular POST screen.
4.4. 3 Boot Block
The Flash ROM used in many systems today offer the customer the advantage of
electronically reprogramming the BIOS without physically replacing the BIOS ROM.
This advantage, however, does create a possible hazard: power failures or
fluctuations that occur during updating the Flash ROM can damage the BIOS code,
making the system unbootable. To prevent this possible hazard, many Flash ROM
include a special non-volatile region that can never be erased. This region, called the
boot block, contains a fail-safe recovery routine. If the boot block finds corrupted
BIOS, it prompts the end user to insert a diskette, from which it loads several files
that replace the corrupted BIOS on the Flash ROM with an uncorrupted one.
4.5 Thermal management
Please refer to Keyboard BIOS specification.
4.6 Power Management for ACPI mode
4.6.1Introduction
The notebook supports ACPI. The system will dynamically switch to ACPI mode for
configuration and power management when an ACPI OS is loaded.
When ACPI is not loaded and enabled, the power management function will be
disabled.
4.6.2 System Time-outs
If the system is running in ACPI mode, system Time-outs is handled by the operating
system. BIOS time-outs are disabled. System time-outs are set using the control
panel power applet.
4.6.3 System Power Management
The overall system can be in one of the system power states as described below:
ACPI mode
Power Management
Mech. Off (G3)
All devices in the system are turned off
completely.
Soft Off (G2/S5)
OS initiated shutdown. All devices in the system
are turned off completely.
Working (G0/S0)
Individual devices such as the CPU and hard
disk may be power managed in this state.
S3 Sleeping State
CPU set power down
VGA Suspend
New Card Suspend
Audio Suspend
Hard Disk Power Down
ODD Power Down
Super I/O Power Down
S4 Sleeping State
System Saves all system states and data onto
disk prior to power off the whole system.
4.6.4 Device Power Management
Under ACPI mode, the device specific power management supported by this
notebook includes the CPU throttling, monitor power management and the hard disk.
4.6.4.1 CPU power management

ACPI mode
The operating system detects when the system is idle and places the CPU in one of
the 3 CPU low power states (C1, C2, C3 up to C6) depending on how much latency it
believes the system can afford.
The C1 state is simply the CPU halt instruction.
The C2 state is the CPU stop grant state.
The C3 state is the CPU stops clock state.
The CPU stays in this state until an interrupt occurs.
4.6.4.2 Hard Disk
The operating system uses the spin down timer of the hard drive to set time-outs.
The BIOS time-out of the hard disk must be disabled in ACPI mode. The user can
sets the hard disk spin down time-out in the control panel power applet.
4.6.4.3 Display Device
The monitor can be turned off after a period of no activity based on the settings of the
OS.

mode.
4.6.5 Hibernation
To support the hibernate state, the save to disk partition or file will be created by the
operating system if the user select to enable the hibernation.
It is the responsibility of the operating system to save the system state to a disk file
and restore the system state when it is turned back on.
4.7 ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power Interface)
4.7.1Introduction
The Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) is a well-specified power
management and configuration mechanism. It evolves the existing collection of
power management codes, APM, PnP BIOS, and Etc.
4.7.2 ACPI Sleep Status
BIOS must support the following sleep states – S3, S4 and S5.
4.7.3 Fast Resume
BIOS must hands off the control to the operating system within the following time
limits:

Note1: The backlight of LCD should be off when WOL from S3 as it is remote wake up.
Note2: the S3 -> S4 transition results in the system transitioning to the S0 state first so OS can
save the context to the hard disk. The system BIOS/KBC will not be involved for S3 -> S4
transition. The system power scheme will wake the machine from S3 and then transition to S4
Hibernation. The backlight of LCD is off during this transition.
4.7.5 Storage Devices and Batteries
Possible storage devices are FDD, HDD, CD-ROM and DVD-ROM

Floppy Disk and Hard Disk, CD-ROM and DVD-ROM
The BIOS must report the correct types of these devices if the drive is installed in the
system during POST. Two devices, which belong to the same category, are not
supported in this notebook.

Batteries
The BIOS must follow ACPI specification and report the correct number of the
installed battery and status.
4.7.6 Bootable Device
The system is capable of booting from onboard HDD, CD ROM, DVD-ROM, external
USB Floppy and USB ATA Flash device.
4.7.7 Embedded controller
The keyboard controller will act as the ACPI embedded controller and support the

The notebook must meet Microsoft Logo requirements in accordance with the
PC2001 Guide and the Microsoft Logo test programs.
4.9 Miscellaneous Features
4.9.1BIOS ROM
It depends on the platform design architecture (sharer ROM or Non-Sharer ROM,
Intel ME SKU and so on).
Non-Sharer ROM: SBIOS and EC BIOS have each SPI ROM chip separately, the
EEPROM is inside EC BIOS area, BIOS will copy a full set of EEPROM data to
SBIOS ROM at the first POST or EEPROM data is updated to speed up the
EEPROM access.
Sharer ROM: The EC BIOS, EEPROM and SBIOS are all inside one SPI ROM chip.
4.9.2 USB Support
This feature allows the use of a USB keyboard to access BIOS Setup and to be used
in DOS without additional drivers. USB floppy boot and Crisis Recovery from USB
floppy is also supported. The driver provides other USB devices support after loading
the operating system.
4.9.3 Flash utility – one BIOS ROM only
The flash utility can be used to program both system and keyboard BIOS at the same
time.
4.9.4 Crisis Recovery
This feature provides an opportunity for system that cannot boot up. With a crisis
floppy diskette, the system can perform crisis recovery by using internal PS2
keyboard.
To perform crisis recovery using keyboard, do the following:
Power off the system.
Plug-in the USB floppy drive with crisis floppy diskette inserted.
Hold down Fn + B keys.
Plug-in AC adapter and make sure it is powered.
Power on the system from off state (i.e. cold boot) while holding down <Fn+B> key.
After POST, release <Fn+B> key. The system should boot from floppy and perform
crisis recovery action.
4.9.5 VGA Support
This section describes the expected behavior when a video monitor is connected to
the VGA port on the notebook .The feature needs VGA driver support.
The BIOS will use both the RGB and pin 11 methods to determine the presence of
an external VGA monitor.
Video modes supported on the secondary display path (need VGA driver
support)
Supported video modes and timings please refer to the technical reference of VGA
vendor. In particular, text mode and standard VGA modes are not supported.
4.9.5.1 Brightness table
This section describes the LCD Brightness control.
The keyboard Fn+F4 and Fn+F5 keys, the AC/DC state and the brightness slide bar in
Windows Vista Mobility Center control the LCD brightness.
There shall be 11 levels of distinct brightness.
Level 11 = Maximum Brightness possible.
Level 1 = Minimum brightness without flickering (10 nits recommended, depending on inverter
stability, type and display uniformity)
*One setting level should be approximately 55 – 60 nits for Mobile Mark 2002 test.
4.9.5.2 Boot Display Algorithm
This section describes the POST boot up display device with multi display device attached.
Only support Local Flat Panel display during POST when LFP attached, the external display
device (Include VGA, DVI, HDMI and DP) will not display until entering the OS.
4.9.6 Fast Boot
The BIOS POST time should be within 5 seconds or less. The BIOS POST time is measured
by Microsoft Velocity Test Suite. The POST timing test needs to include the worst-case drive
configuration (internal or external) and worst-case memory configuration available via the retail
channels.
The POST time testing environment does not include attachable devices such as USB
keyboards, external monitors, printers, PC Cards, Port Replicators and etc.
For Win8, the BIOS POST time should be within 4 seconds or less.
Note: if have TPM device, the BIOS Post Time should add extra 300 microseconds for initial.
4.9.7 Wireless Control
BIOS should report the wireless device (include WLAN and BT) exist and enable status to the
EC name space .

4.10.5 OEM Active 1.0/2.0/2.1 and KMS activation Support
OEM Activation 1.0 (a.k.a. SLP 1.0) is used to activate Windows XP. To support it, BIOS
needs to populate OEM string in the 0xF000 segment during POST.
OEM Activation 2.0 (a.k.a. SLP 2.0) is used to activate Windows Vista. To support it,
BIOS needs to populate ACPI SLIC table during POST.
For projects supports Windows 7, SLP 2.1 is required to support.
For projects supports Windows8, OA 3.0 is required to support.
MS claims the Windows marker is MS‘s IP and cannot appear on non-Windows OS
SKUs. An EEPROM flag OS_SKU (refer Sec. 9.4) is defined to indicate the machine is
shipped with Windows or non-Windows OS. The flag is programmed in the factory and
BIOS needs to read this flag when populating OEM string/ACPI SLIC table. If the flag
indicates the machine is shipped with non-Windows OS, BIOS will not load Windows
marker structure in ACPI SLIC table.
KMS Activation support.
To support the KMS activation, the SLIC table should be removed from the ACPI table.
To support multi customer, BIOS should remove the SLIC table as default, and populate
the SLIC table if customer enter the OEM ID, OEM table ID and OS_SKU in the
EEPROM. The customer should create customized BIOS with SLP2.0/2.1 market and
public key at the same time to active Vista/Window 7. Please refer to the ―How to update
OEM SLP‖ for the detail instruction of customized BIOS creation.
4.10.6 Multi Customer Logo Support
To support Multi customer Logo, BIOS will merge dummy OEM logo in BIOS as default,
and customer should create customized BIOS with OEM Logo. Please refer to the ―How
to update OEM Logo‖ for the detail instruction of customized BIOS creation.
