BOOT SEQUENCE
The procedure for starting-up your LifeBook notebook
is termed the Bootup sequence and involves your notebook’s Basic Input-Output System (BIOS). When your
notebook is first turned on, the main system memory is
empty, and it needs to find instructions to start up your
notebook. This information is in the BIOS program.
Each time you power up or restart your notebook, it
goes through a boot sequence which displays a Fujitsu
logo until your operating system is loaded. During
booting, your LifeBook notebook is performing a standard boot sequence including a POST. When the boot
sequence is completed without a failure and without a
request for the BIOS Setup Utility, the system displays
the operating system’s opening screen.
The boot sequence is executed when:
■
When you turn on your LifeBook notebook be sure you have a power source.
This means that at least one battery is
installed and charged, or that the AC or
Auto/Airline adapter is connected and has
power.
To turn on your LifeBook notebook from its off state,
press the Power/Suspend/Resume button located in the
center above the keyboard (Figure 3-3). When you are
done working you can either leave your LifeBook notebook in Suspend mode, (See Suspend Mode on page 31
for more information), or you can turn it off. (See Power
Off on page 32 for more information)
Do not carry your notebook around with
power on or subject it to shocks or vibration, as you risk damaging your notebook.
When you power on your notebook, it will perform a
Power On Self Test (POST) to check the internal parts
and configuration for correct functionality. If a fault is
found, your LifeBook notebook will emit an audio
warning and/or an error message will be displayed. (See
Power On Self Test Messages on page 71 for more information) Depending on the nature of the problem, you may
be able to continue by starting the operating system or by
entering the BIOS setup utility and revising the settings.
After satisfactory completion of the POST, your LifeBook notebook will load your operating system.

[CTRL+ALT+DEL].
BIOS SETUP UTILITY
The BIOS Setup Utility is a program that sets up the
operating environment for your LifeBook notebook.
Your BIOS is set at the factory for normal operating
conditions, therefore there is no need to set or change
the BIOS’ environment to operate your notebook.
The BIOS Setup Utility allows you to change:
■
■
Device control feature parameters, such as I/O

Power Management
Power Management
Your LifeBook notebook has many features for
conserving battery power. Some of these features are
automatic and need no user intervention, such as those
for the internal modem. However, others depend on the
parameters you set to best suit your operating conditions, such as those for the display brightness. Internal
power management for your LifeBook notebook may be
controlled from settings made in your operating system
or pre-bundled power management application.
Besides the options available for conserving battery
power, there are also some things that you can do to
prevent your battery from running down as quickly.
For example, you can create an appropriate power saving
profile, put your LifeBook notebook into Suspend mode
when it is not performing an operation, and you can
limit the use of high power devices. As with all mobile
battery-powered computers, there is a trade-off between
performance and power savings.
POWER/SUSPEND/RESUME BUTTON
When your LifeBook notebook is active, the Power/
Suspend/Resume button can be used to manually put
your LifeBook notebook into Suspend mode. Push the
Power/Suspend/Resume button when your LifeBook
notebook is active, but not actively accessing anything,
and immediately release the button. You will hear two
short beeps and your system will enter Suspend mode.
If your LifeBook notebook is suspended, pushing the
Power/Suspend/Resume button will return your LifeBook notebook to active operation.
SUSPEND MODE
Suspend mode saves the contents of your LifeBook notebook’s system memory during periods of inactivity by
maintaining power to critical parts. This mode will turn
off the CPU, the display, the hard drive, and all of the
other internal components except those necessary to
maintain system memory and allow for restarting. Your
LifeBook notebook can be put in Suspend mode by:
■
■
■
■
where it left off. You must use the Power/Suspend/
Resume button to resume operation, and there must be
an adequate power source available, or your notebook
will not resume.
If you are running your LifeBook notebook
on battery power, be aware that the battery continues to discharge while your
LifeBook notebook is in Suspend mode,
though not as fast as when fully operational.
HIBERNATION (SAVE-TO-DISK) FEATURE
The Hibernation (Save-to-Disk) feature saves the
contents of your LifeBook notebook’s system memory to
the hard drive as a part of the Suspend/Resume mode.
You can enable or disable this feature.
Enable or Disable the Hibernation Feature
Hibernation is the default setting for Windows XP. To
disable or enable the Hibernation feature, follow these
steps:
1. From the Start menu, select Control Panel.
2. From the Control Panel, double-click the Power
Options icon.
3. Select the Hibernate tab. Select or deselect the box to
enable or disable this feature.
Using the Hibernation Feature
1. From the Start menu, select Control Panel.
2. From the Control Panel, select Power Options.
3. Select the Advanced tab. Select Hibernate from the
pull down menu for Power buttons. (Note that
Hibernate will only appear as an option if it has
been enabled in the Hibernate tab).
The Suspend or Hibernation (Save-toDisk) mode should not be used with certain PC Cards. Check your PC Card documentation for more information.
Pressing the Power/Suspend/Resume button when
your system is turned on.
Selecting Standby from the Windows Shut Down menu.
Timing out from lack of activity (if the power profile
has been set up accordingly).
Allowing the battery to reach the Dead Battery
Warning condition.
Your notebook’s system memory typically stores the files
on which you are working, open applications information, and any other data required to support the operations in progress. When you resume operation from
Suspend mode, your notebook will return to the point
31
N3520.book Page 32 Thursday, September 22, 2005 2:37 PM
LifeBook N Series Notebook – Section Three
■
■
■
If your notebook is actively accessing
information when you enter the Suspend
or Hibernation (Save-to-Disk) modes
changes to open files are not lost. The
files are left open and memory is kept
active during Suspend mode or the
memory is transferred to the internal
hard drive during Hibernation (Save-toDisk) mode.
When PC Cards or external devices are
in use, Save-to-Disk mode cannot return
to the exact state prior to suspension,
because all of the peripheral devices are
re-initialized when the system restarts.
The main advantage of using Hibernation is that power is not required to
maintain your data. This is important if
you will be leaving your notebook in a
suspended state for a prolonged period
of time. The drawback of using Hibernation mode is that it lengthens the power
down and power up sequences and
resets peripheral devices.
DISPLAY TIMEOUT
The Video Timeout is one of the power management
parameters. This feature saves power by turning off the
display if there is no keyboard or pointer activity for the
user selected timeout period. Any keyboard or pointer
activity will cause the display to restart automatically.
This feature is independent of the Power/Suspend/
Resume button and can be enabled and disabled in
Windows.
RESTARTING THE SYSTEM
If your system is on and you need to restart it, be sure
that you use the following procedure.
1. Click the Start button, and then click Shut Down.
2. Select the Restart option from within the Windows
Shut Down dialog box.
3. Click OK to restart your LifeBook notebook. Your
notebook will shut down and then reboot.
Turning off your LifeBook notebook
without exiting Windows or turning on
your notebook within 10 seconds of the
notebook being shut off may cause an
error when you start the next time.
POWER OFF
Before turning off the power by choosing Shut Down
from Windows, check that the Hard Drive, optical drive,
PC Card and Floppy Disk Drive Access indicators are all
Off. (See figure 2-8 on page 14) If you turn off the power
while accessing a disk or PC Card there is a risk of data
loss. To ensure that your LifeBook notebook shuts down
without error, use the Windows shut down procedure.
Never turn your LifeBook notebook off
while an application is running. Be sure to
close all files, exit all applications, and shut
down your operating system prior to turning off the power. If files are open when
you turn the power off, you will lose any
changes that have not been saved, and
may cause disk errors.
HARD DISK TIMEOUT
The Hard Disk Timeout is another one of the power
management parameters. This feature saves power by
turning off the hard drive if there is no hard drive
activity for the user selected timeout period. Any
attempt to access the hard drive will cause it to restart
automatically. This feature is independent of the Power/
Suspend/Resume button and can be enabled and
disabled in Windows.
Using the correct procedure to shut down from Windows,
allows your LifeBook notebook to complete its operations
and turn off power in the proper sequence to avoid errors.
The proper sequence is:
WINDOWS POWER MANAGEMENT
If you are going to store your LifeBook notebook for a
month or more, see the Care and Maintenance section of
this manual.
The Power Options icon in the Windows Control Panel
allows you to configure some of the power management
settings. For example, you can use the Power Management to set the timeout values for turning off the display
and hard disks whether you are running the notebook
on battery power or one of the adapters. (See PreInstalled Software on page 85 for more information)

Lithium ion Battery
Lithium ion Battery
Your LifeBook notebook has a Lithium ion battery that
provides power for operating your notebook when no
external power source is available. The battery is durable
and long lasting, but should not be exposed to extreme
temperatures, high voltages, chemicals or other hazards.
The Lithium ion battery operating time may become
shorter if it is used under the following conditions:
■
■
The operating temperature range of the Lithium ion
battery is 5°C to 30°C. If the battery is used outside
these temperature ranges, charging efficiency will be
greatly reduced and the likelihood of battery deterioration will greatly increase. The Battery Charging indicator on the Status Indicator Panel will flash orange
when you try to charge a battery that is outside its
operating temperature range. (See Battery Charging
Indicator on page 14 for more information)
When using a high current device such as a modem,
DVD, or hard drive, using the AC adapter will
conserve your battery life.
■
Actual battery life will vary based on
screen brightness, applications, features, power management settings, battery condition and other customer
preferences. Media player drive or hard
drive usage may also have a significant
impact on battery life. The battery
charging capacity is reduced as the battery ages. If your battery is running low
quickly, you should replace it with a new
one.
■
Do not leave a faulty battery in your
LifeBook notebook. It may damage your
AC adapter, optional Auto/Airline
adapter, or your LifeBook notebook
itself. It may also prevent operation of
your notebook by draining all available
current into the bad battery.
■
Under federal, state, or local law, it may
be illegal to dispose of batteries by putting them in the trash. Please take care
of our environment and dispose of batteries properly. Check with your local
government authority for details regarding recycling or disposing of old batteries. If you cannot find this information
elsewhere, contact your support representative at 1-800-8Fujitsu
(1-800-838-5487).
RECHARGING THE BATTERIES
If you want to know the charge condition of the primary
Lithium ion battery, check the Battery Level indicator
located on the Status Indicator panel (See Battery Level
Indicator on page 14 for more information). The indicator
changes as the battery level changes.
The Lithium ion battery is recharged internally using the
AC adapter or Auto/Airline adapter. To recharge the
battery, make sure the battery is installed in your notebook and connect the AC or Auto/Airline adapter.
Make sure that the Battery Charging
indicator and the percentage charge is
indicated by the Battery Level icon on the
Status Indicator Panel.
It is not necessary to discharge the battery completely
before recharging. Charge times will be much longer if
your notebook is in use while the battery is charging. If
you want to charge the battery more quickly, put your
notebook into Suspend mode, or turn it off while the
adapter is charging the battery. (See Power Management
on page 31 for more information on Suspend mode and
shutdown procedure)
Using heavy current devices such as a modem
or frequent media player accesses may
prevent charging completely.
Low Battery State
When the battery is running low, a low battery notification message will appear. If you do not respond to the
low battery message, the batteries will continue to
discharge until they are too low to operate. When this
happens, your LifeBook notebook will go into Suspend
mode. There is no guarantee that your data will be saved
once the notebook reaches this point.
■
■
Once the low battery notification
message appears, you need to either
plug in an AC power adapter or Auto/
Airline adapter, or save all your active
data, power down your system, and
install a charged battery as soon as
possible.
When you are in Suspend mode there
must always be at least one power
source active. If you remove all power
sources while your LifeBook notebook is
in Suspend mode, any data that has not
been saved to the hard drive will be lost.
35
N3520.book Page 36 Thursday, September 22, 2005 2:37 PM
LifeBook N Series Notebook – Section Four
Once your LifeBook notebook battery goes dead, you
will be unable to resume operation until you provide a
source of power either from an adapter or a charged
battery. Once you have provided power, you will need to
press the Power/Suspend/Resume button to resume
operation. If your battery dies, your data will be lost if a
power source is not provided promptly. Once you
provide power, you can continue to use your LifeBook
notebook while an adapter is charging the battery.
5. Insert the new battery into the bay. The pins will

surround sound, select one of the radio buttons
listed under Room Filter Setting.
5. Click OK. The Dolby Headphone feature will now
be enabled until you disable it by unchecking Enable
Dolby Headphone.
USING OPTICAL DRIVE ON BATTERY POWER
Since optical drives consume a lot of power, your overall
battery life will be significantly shorter when operating
the drive continuously (such as watching a DVD movie)
than during standard operation. Many movie run-times
are longer than your LifeBook notebook can support on a
single charged battery. If you are watching a DVD movie
on battery power you may need to swap in an additional,
charged battery or attach AC power during the movie to
view it in its entirety.
An additional fully-charged battery is
recommended if you will be watching
DVD movies on battery power. If you
don’t have an additional battery, you may
purchase one either online at
http://www.computers.us.fujitsu.com or
by calling 1-877-372-3473.
To Watch a Movie on Battery Power:
1. Have an additional full-charged battery or your AC
adapter ready for use.
2. Start watching your DVD movie.
3. When the low battery warning occurs, immediately
stop the movie and exit the media player.
If you do not stop the optical drive quickly

Before Using the Wireless LAN
This manual describes the procedures required to properly set up and configure the integrated Wireless LAN
Mini-PCI device (referred to as "WLAN device" in the
rest of the manual). Before using the WLAN device, read
this manual carefully to ensure it's correct operation.
Keep this manual in a safe place for future reference.
■
The WLAN device supports the following encryption
methods - WEP, TKIP, CKIP, and AES encryption.
■
The Wireless LAN device is compliant with the following standards: WPA, WPA2, CCX1.0, CCX2.0, and
CCX3.0.
Wireless LAN Device Covered by this Document
WIRELESS LAN MODES USING THIS DEVICE
This document is applicable to systems containing the
Intel PRO/Wireless WM3B2915ABG Network Connections (802.11a+b/g)
Ad Hoc Mode
Characteristics of the WLAN Device
■
The WLAN device is a Mini-PCI card attached to the
main board of the mobile computer.
■
The WLAN device operates in license-free RF bands,
eliminating the need to procure an FCC operating
license. The WLAN operates in the 2.4GHz Industrial,
Scientific, and Medical (ISM) RF band and the lower,
middle, and upper bands of the 5GHz Unlicensed
National Information Infrastructure (UNII) bands.
■
The Intel PRO/Wireless WM3B2915ABG WLAN
device is capable of three operating modes,
IEEE802.11a, IEEE802.11b and IEEE802.11g.
■
The WLAN device is Wi-Fi certified and operates at
the maximum data transfer rate of 54 Mbps in
IEEE802.11a or IEEE802.11g mode and 11 Mbps in
IEEE802.11b mode.
■
The maximum communication range indoors is
approximately 80 feet (25 meters). However, that
range will increase or decrease depending on factors
such as number of walls, reflective material, or interference from external RF sources.
Figure 5-1. Ad Hoc Mode Network
50
(See Figure 5-1) "Ad Hoc Mode" refers to a wireless
network architecture where wireless network connectivity between multiple computers is established without
a central wireless network device, typically known as
Access Point(s). Connectivity is accomplished using only
client devices in a peer-to-peer fashion. That is why Ad
Hoc networks are also known as peer-to-peer networks.
Ad Hoc networks are an easy and inexpensive method
for establishing network connectivity between multiple
computers.
Ad Hoc mode requires that the SSID, network authentication, and encryption key settings are identically
configured on all computers in the Ad Hoc network.
Access Point (Infrastructure) Mode
(See Figure 5-2) Infrastructure mode refers to a wireless
network architecture in which devices communicate
with wireless or wired network devices by communicating through an Access Point. In infrastructure mode,
wireless devices can communicate with each other or
with a wired network. Corporate wireless networks
operate in infrastructure mode because they require
access to the WLAN in order to access services, devices,
and computers (e.g., file servers, printers, databases).

How to Handle This Device
Before using the wireless LAN device, you
must first install ClickMe! to ensure that
the correct software for your device is
installed. (See Installing Click Me! on
The WLAN device comes pre-installed in your mobile
computer. Under normal circumstances, it should not be
necessary for you to remove or re-install it. The Operating System that your mobile computer comes with has
been pre-configured to support the WLAN device.
■
The Intel PRO/Wireless 2915ABG WLAN device supports IEEE802.11a, IEEE802.11b and IEEE802.11g.
■
The WLAN device operates in the 2.4GHz ISM band
and the 5 GHz lower, middle, and upper UNII bands.
■
Microwave ovens may interfere with the operation of
WLAN devices since they operate in the same 2.4GHz
frequency range as IEEE802.11b/g devices. Interference by microwaves does not occur with IEEE802.11a
radio which operates in the 5 GHz RF band.
■
Wireless devices that transmit in the 2.4GHz frequency range may interfere with the operation of
WLAN devices in IEEE802.11b/g modes. Symptoms of
interference include reduced throughput, intermittent
disconnects, and large amounts of frame errors. It is
HIGHLY recommended that these interfering devices
be powered off to ensure the proper operation of the
WLAN device.
DEACTIVATING THE WLAN DEVICE
Deactivation of the WLAN device may be desired in
certain circumstances (to extend battery life) or where
certain environments require it (i.e. hospitals, clinics,
airplanes, etc.). Fujitsu mobile computers employ two
methods with which to deactivate the WLAN device,

Wireless LAN Glossary
GLOSSARY
Access point
Wireless network device used to bridge wireless and
wired network traffic.
Ad Hoc Mode
Ad Hoc Mode refers to a wireless network architecture
where wireless network connectivity between multiple
computers is established without a central wireless
network device, typically known as Access Points.
Connectivity is accomplished using only client devices in
a peer-to-peer fashion. For details, refer to “Ad hoc
connection” on page 50.
MAC address (Media Access Control Address)
A MAC address (also called an Ethernet address or IEEE
MAC address) is the 48-bit address (typically written as
twelve hexadecimal digits, 0 through 9 and A through F,
or as six hexadecimal numbers separated by periods or
colons, e.g., 0080002012ef, 0:80:0:2:20:ef) which identify
uniquely a computer that has an Ethernet interface.
MTU (Maximum Transmission Unit)
The maximum size of data which can be transmitted at
one time in networks including the Internet. In an environment whose maximum size of data is too large to
correctly receive data, normal communications can be
restored by setting the size of MTU to a smaller value.
Channel
Network key
Range of narrow-band frequencies used by the WLAN
device to transmit data. IEEE802.11b/g - 11 channels, 22
MHz wide channels.
Data that is used for encrypting data in data communication. The personal computer uses the same network
key both for data encryption and decryption, therefore,
it is necessary to set the same network key as the other
side of communication.
DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol)
A protocol that provides a means to dynamically allocate
IP addresses to computers on a local area network.
DNS (Domain Name System)
A data query service that provides a mechanism with
which to translate host names into Internet addresses.
IEEE802.11a
Wireless LAN standard that supports a maximum data
rate of 54 Mbps. 802.11a devices operate in the 5 GHz
lower and middle UNII bands.
IEEE802.11b
Wireless LAN standard that supports a maximum data
rate of 11 Mbps. 802.11b devices operate in the 2.4 GHz
ISM band.
IEEE802.11g
Wireless LAN standard that supports a maximum data
rate of 54 Mbps. 802.11g devices operate in the 2.4 GHz
ISM band.
IP address
The logical 32-bit host address defined by the Internet
Protocol that uniquely identifies a computer on a
network. The IP address is usually expressed in dotted
decimal notation.
LAN (Local Area Network)
A LAN or Local Area Network is a computer network (or
data communications network) which is confined to a
limited geographical area.
Network name (SSID: Service Set Identifier)
When a wireless LAN network is configured, grouping is
performed to avoid interference or data theft. This
grouping is performed with “Network name (SSID)”. In
order to improve security, the network key is set
allowing no communication unless “Network name
(SSID)” coincides with the network key.
Open system authentication
Null authentication method specified in the 802.11 standard that performs no authentication checks on a wireless client before allowing it to associate.
PPPoE (Point to Point Protocol over Ethernet)
A method of allowing the authentication protocol
adopted in telephone line connection (PPP) to be used
over an Ethernet.
Protocol
A procedure or rule of delivering data among
computers. Ordered data communication is allowed by
making all conditions required for communication
including the method of data transmission/reception
and action upon communication errors into procedures.
Shared key authentication
802.11 network authentication method in which the AP
sends the client device a challenge text packet that the
client must then encrypt with the correct WEP key and
return to the AP. If the client has the wrong key or no
key, authentication will fail and the client will not be
allowed to associate with the AP. Shared key authentica57

LifeBook N Series Notebook - Section Five
tion is not considered secure, because a hacker who
detects both the clear-text challenge and the same challenge encrypted with a WEP key can decipher the key.
SSID (Service Set Identifier)
Service Set Identifier, a 32-character unique identifier
attached to the header of packets sent over a WLAN that
acts as a password when a mobile device tries to connect
to the BSS. The SSID differentiates one WLAN from
another, so all access points and all devices attempting to
connect to a specific WLAN must use the same SSID. A
device will not be permitted to join the BSS unless it can
provide the unique SSID. Because the SSID is broadcast
in plain text, it does not supply any security to the
network.
Subnet mask
TCP-IP network is controlled by being divided into
multiple smaller networks (subnets). IP address consists
of the subnet address and the address of each computer.
Subnet mask defines how many bits of IP address
comprise the subnet address. The same value shall be set
among computers communicating with each other.
TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet
Protocol)
A standard protocol of the Internet.
Wi-Fi
Wi-Fi (Wireless Fidelity) is a set of standards for wireless
local area networks (WLAN) based on the IEEE 802.11
specifications. Certified products can use the official WiFi logo, which indicates that the product is interoperable
with any other product also showing that logo.

IP address information
ABOUT IP ADDRESSES
IP addressing is much more complicated
than can be briefly explained in this
document. You are advised to consult with
your network administrator for additional
information.
If IP address is unknown, set IP address as follows:
If you have an access point (DHCP server) on the
network, set the IP address as follows:
[Obtain an IP address automatically]
A DHCP server is a server that
automatically assigns IP addresses to
computers or other devices in the network.
There is no DHCP server for the AdHoc
network.
If the IP address is already assigned to the computer in
the network, ask the network administrator to check the
IP address to be set for the computer.
If no access point is found in the network:
An IP address is expressed with four values in the range
between 1 and 255.
Set the each computer as follows: The value in parentheses is a subnet mask.
<Example>
Computer A: 192.168.100.2 (255.255.255.0)
Computer B: 192.168.100.3 (255.255.255.0)

DVD titles
Possible Cause
Possible Solutions
The region code for the DVD
does not match that of the media
player.
All Fujitsu notebook DVD players are set to play
DVD titles with region code number 1, which is
specified for the North American market. The
region number is a regional restriction code defined
by the DVD Forum acting on the requirements of
Hollywood. Different region codes are recorded on
video DVD titles for publication in different areas of
the world. If the regional code of the DVD player
does not match the regional codes on the titles, then
playback is impossible.
NOTE: You can change the region code on the DVD
player using the Properties menu of the DVD software. Note, however, that you can only change the
region code up to four times. After the fourth
change, the last region code entered becomes
permanent, and cannot be changed.
Hard Drive Problems
You cannot access your
hard drive.

and Primary Slave correctly. (See BIOS Setup Utility
on page 29 for more information)
The wrong drive designator was
used by an application when a
bootable CD-ROM was used to
start the LifeBook notebook.
Verify drive designator used by application is in
use by the operating system. When the operating
system is booted from a CD, drive designations
are automatically adjusted.

messages that BIOS and/or your operating system can
generate and an explanation of each message. Error
messages are marked with an *. The most common
errors are marked with a #. If an error message is
displayed, write it down and check your operating
system documentation both on screen and in the
manual. If you can find no reference to the message and
its meaning is not clear, contact your support representative for assistance.

that the diskette drive is installed correctly. If the disk
drive is properly defined and installed, avoid using it and
contact your support representative.
*Extended RAM Failed at offset: nnnn
Extended memory not working or not configured properly. If you have an installed memory upgrade module,
verify that the module is properly installed. If it is properly installed, you may want to check your Windows
Setup to be sure it is not using unavailable memory
until you can contact your support representative.
nnnn Extended RAM Passed
Where nnnn is the amount of memory in kilobytes
successfully tested.
*Failing Bits: nnnn The hex number nnnn
This is a map of the bits at the memory address (in

if you continue. Contact your support representative.
*Fixed Disk x Failure or Fixed Disk Controller
Failure (where x = 1-4)
The fixed disk is not working or not configured properly.
This may mean that the hard drive type identified in
your setup utility does not agree with the type detected
by the Power On Self Test. Run the setup utility to check
for the hard drive type settings and correct them if
necessary. If the settings are OK and the message appears
when you restart the system, there may be a serious fault
which might cause you to lose data if you continue.
Contact your support representative.
*Incorrect Drive A type – run SETUP

■
The Recovery utility allows you to restore the original
contents of the C: drive.
The Hard Disk Data Delete utility on this disc is used
to delete all data on your hard disk and prevent it from
being reused. Do not use the Hard Disk Data Delete
utility unless you are absolutely certain that you want
to erase your entire hard disk, including all partitions.
• The use of this disc requires that you
have a device capable of reading DVDs
attached to your system. If you do not
have a built-in DVD drive, you will need
to attach an external drive. For more
information on available external devices,
visit our Web site at:
http://www.computers.us.fujitsu.com.
• This disc can only be used with the
system with which it was purchased.
BOOT Priority Change
Before restoring an image, you must first verify that your

at the top of the list, arrow down to the drive in the
list, and press the space bar (or the + key) to move it
to the top of the list. (The system attempts to boot
from the devices in the order in which they are
listed.). Note that the BIOS for some systems will
indicate “CD-ROM Drive”, even when a DVD drive
is connected.
5. If you have an external DVD drive connected,
proceed to step 6; otherwise, proceed to step 7.
6. If you have an external DVD drive connected:
• Select the Advance menu in the BIOS window.
• Scroll down to the USB Features submenu and
press the Enter key to open it.
