material could become damaged.
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.

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

charge and cause an electrical shock or minor bodily injury when
touched. As a general safety precaution, avoid touching any metal
parts.
Never place your computer or AC adaptor on a wooden surface,
furniture, or any other surface that could be marred by exposure to
heat since the computer base and the surface of the AC adaptor
increase in temperature during normal use.
Always place your computer or AC adaptor on a flat and hard surface
that is resistant to heat damage.
Refer to the enclosed Instruction Manual for Safety and Comfort for
detailed precautions and handling instructions.

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 RealTime 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
Power off
Power on
Battery pack (32Wh, 4
cell)
about 3 hours
about 4 hours
Battery pack (45Wh, 4
cell)
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.
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.

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.

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.
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.
TOSHIBA is not liable for the loss of data due to eavesdropping or
illegal access through the wireless LAN and the damage thereof.

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.

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.

Hard Disk Drive (HDD) Capacity
1 Gigabyte (GB) means 109 = 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 = 230 = 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.

Introduction
============
The FreeType Project is distributed in several archive packages; some of
them may contain, in addition to the FreeType font engine, various tools
and contributions which rely on, or relate to, the FreeType Project.
This license applies to all files found in such packages, and which do not
fall under their own explicit license. The license affects thus the FreeType
font engine, the test programs, documentation and makefiles, at the very
least.
This license was inspired by the BSD, Artistic, and IJG (Independent JPEG
Group) licenses, which all encourage inclusion and use of free software in
commercial and freeware products alike. As a consequence, its main
points are that:
We dont promise that this software works. However, we will be
interested in any kind of bug reports. (`as is` distribution)
You can use this software for whatever you want, in parts or full form,
without having to pay us. (`royalty-free` usage)
You may not pretend that you wrote this software. If you use it, or only
parts of it, in a program, you must acknowledge somewhere in your
documentation that you have used the FreeType code. (`credits`)
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.
Legal Terms
============
0. Definitions
-------------Throughout this license, the terms `package`, `FreeType Project`, and
`FreeType archive` refer to the set of files originally distributed by the
authors (David Turner, Robert Wilhelm, and Werner Lemberg) as the
`FreeType Project`, be they named as alpha, beta or final release.
User's Manual
7-19
`You` refers to the licensee, or person using the project, where `using` is a
generic term including compiling the project`s source code as well as
linking it to form a `program` or `executable`. This program is referred to as
`a program using the FreeType engine`.
This license applies to all files distributed in the original FreeType Project,
including all source code, binaries and documentation, unless otherwise
stated in the file in its original, unmodified form as distributed in the original
archive. If you are unsure whether or not a particular file is covered by this
license, you must contact us to verify this.
The FreeType Project is copyright (C) 1996-2000 by David Turner, Robert
Wilhelm, and Werner Lemberg. All rights reserved except as specified
below.
1. No Warranty
-------------THE FREETYPE PROJECT IS PROVIDED `AS IS` WITHOUT
WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED,
INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, WARRANTIES OF
MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. IN
NO EVENT WILL ANY OF THE AUTHORS OR COPYRIGHT HOLDERS
BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES CAUSED BY THE USE OR THE
INABILITY TO USE, OF THE FREETYPE PROJECT.
2. Redistribution
-------------This license grants a worldwide, royalty-free, perpetual and irrevocable
right and license to use, execute, perform, compile, display, copy, create
derivative works of, distribute and sublicense the FreeType Project (in both
source and object code forms) and derivative works thereof for any
purpose; and to authorize others to exercise some or all of the rights
granted herein, subject to the following conditions:
Redistribution of source code must retain this license file (`FTL.TXT`)
unaltered; any additions, deletions or changes to the original files must
be clearly indicated in accompanying documentation. The copyright
notices of the unaltered, original files must be preserved in all copies
of source files.
Redistribution in binary form must provide a disclaimer that states that
the software is based in part of the work of the FreeType Team, in the
distribution documentation. We also encourage you to put an URL to
the FreeType web page in your documentation, though this isn`t
mandatory.
These conditions apply to any software derived from or based on the
FreeType Project, not just the unmodified files. If you use our work, you
must acknowledge us. However, no fee need be paid to us.
3. Advertising
--------------
User's Manual
7-20
Neither the FreeType authors and contributors nor you shall use the name
of the other for commercial, advertising, or promotional purposes without
specific prior written permission.
We suggest, but do not require, that you use one or more of the following
phrases to refer to this software in your documentation or advertising
materials: `FreeType Project`, `FreeType Engine`, `FreeType library`, or
`FreeType Distribution`.
As you have not signed this license, you are not required to accept it.
However, as the FreeType Project is copyrighted material, only this license,
or another one contracted with the authors, grants you the right to use,
distribute, and modify it. Therefore, by using, distributing, or modifying the
FreeType Project, you indicate that you understand and accept all the
terms of this license.
