Safety Instructions
Use the following safety guidelines to help protect yourself and your netbook.
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.
•
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.
Do not connect or disconnect any cables or perform maintenance or reconfiguration of
this product during an electrical storm.
Avoid using the wired modem or LAN during an electrical storm, as a remote risk of
electric shock from lightning exists.
Do not push objects into the air vents or openings of your netbook or accessories.
Doing so can short out interior components and may cause fire or electric shock.
When installing memory modules, ground yourself by touching a grounded conductive
surface, such as a device with a grounded plug. Avoid touching the pins and leads on
the memory module or internal circuitry of the computer.
•
When setting up the computer for work, place it on a level surface.
•
Handle components with care. Hold a component such as a memory module by its edges,
not its pins.
•
If the battery pack leaks and the fluid get in your eyes, do not rub them. Instead, rinse your
eyes with clean running water and immediately seek medical attention. Otherwise, eye
injury may be resulted.
•
If acid leaking from the battery pack contacts your skin or clothing, immediately wash it
away with the running water. Otherwise, the skin inflammation may occur.
•
Operate the computer at the recommended temperature range of +5oC to +35oC (+41oF to
+95oF). Store it at a temperature of -20oC to +60oC (+4oF to +140oF).
•
Your netbook shipped with the plastic dummies installed in PCMCIA or Express slot.
Dummies protect unused slots from dust, metal object, or other particles. Save the dummy
for use when no PCMCIA or Express Card is installed in the slot.

Specifications
Adapter Warnings
•
See the installation instructions before connecting to the power supply.
•
Use only the adapter indicated in this manual.
•
Power cord sets for use in other countries must meet the requirements of that country. Use
the appropriate AC adapter and power cord for your locale.
•
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 on 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.
−

−
115 V/60 Hz in most of North and South America and some Far Eastern countries such
as South Korea and Taiwan.
100 V/50 Hz in eastern Japan and 100 V/60Hz in western Japan.
230 V/50 Hz in most of Europe, the Middle East, and the Far East.
If you use an extension cable with your AC adapter, ensure that the total ampere rating
of the products plugged in to the extension cable does not exceed the ampere rating of
the extension cable.
•
Place the AC adapter in a ventilated area, such as a desktop or on the floor, when you use
it to run the computer or to charge the battery. Do not cover the AC adapter with papers or
other items that will be reduced to cool; also, do not use the AC adapter while it is inside a
carrying case.
•
Disconnect power cords and cables by grasping the connector, not by pulling on the cable
itself. As you pull out the connector, keep it evenly aligned to avoid bending any connector
pins. Before you connect a cable, please make sure both connectors are correctly aligned.
•
To remove power from the computer, turn it off, remove the battery, and disconnect the AC
adapter from the electrical outlet.

−
−
−
−
Do not carry a battery in your pocket, purse, or other container where metal objects (such as
car keys) could short-circuit the battery terminals. The resulting excessive current flow can
cause extremely high temperatures and may result in damage from burns.
Danger of explosion may occur if battery is incorrectly replaced. Replace only with the same
or equivalent type battery recommended by the manufacturer.
Do not dispose of batteries in a fire. They may explode. Check with local authorities for
disposal instructions.
Do not use or leave the battery pack near a heat source. Heat can melt the insulation and
damage other safety features, possibly leading it to leak acid, overheat, emit smoke, burst
and/or ignite.
Do not immerse the battery pack in water or allow it to get wet. Its protective features can be
damaged. Abnormal chemical reactions may occur, possibly leading it to leak acid, overheat,
emit smoke, burst and/or ignite.
Do not crush, disassemble, puncture, or incinerate the short external contacts of a battery
pack.
Do not connect the positive (+) and negative (-) terminals with a metal object such as wire.
Short-circuiting may occur leading the battery pack to leak acid, overheat, emit smoke, burst
and/or ignite.
Do not use an apparently deformed or damaged battery pack, which may leak acid, overheat,
emit smoke, burst and/or ignite.
If the battery pack leaks, gives off a bad odor, generates heat, becomes discolored or
deformed, or in any way appears abnormal during use, recharging or storage, immediately
remove it from the computer or charger and stop using it.
Battery Pack Disposal
−
−
Dispose of the lithium ion battery packs at approved disposal sites only. To locate an
appropriate site, contact the solid waste disposal officials where you live or look for a
rechargeable battery recycling website that lists disposal locations near you.
Do not dispose of battery packs in a fire, throw them in a trash receptacle, put them in a
recycling bin not intended for their disposal, or otherwise discard them in a manner that may
result in their being hazardous to the environment.

If you are traveling abroad, you can carry the proof of ownership—or of your right
for using your netbook if it is company-owned—to speed your passage through
customs. Investigate the customs regulations of the countries you plan to visit
and consider acquiring an international carnet (also known as a merchandise
passport) from your government.
•
Ensure that you know which electrical outlets are used in the countries you will
visit, and prepare the appropriate power adapters.
•
Check with your credit card company for information about any kinds of
emergency travel assistance it offers to the users of the portable computers.
Chapter2 Caring for Your Notebook
•
When traveling in the air, please ensure that you have a charged battery
available in case you are asked to turn on your netbook.
•
Before using your netbook on the airplane, please verify that such usage is
permitted. Some airlines forbid the use of electronic devices during the flight. All
airlines forbid the use of electronic devices during taking-off and landing.
Never pass your netbook through a metal detector. Send it through an X-ray
machine, or have it manually inspected.
2.2.4 If Your Netbook is Lost or Stolen
Call a law enforcement agency to report your netbook lost or stolen. Ask that a case number
be assigned and write down the number, along with the name, address, and telephone
number of the law enforcement agency. If possible, please obtain the name of the
investigating officer.
If your netbook belongs to the company, notify it’s security office.
