Touchpad
The touchpad is a pressure sensitive pointing device that provides all the
features of a two-button mouse. Its primary function is to move the cursor
around the screen.
Touchpad
buttons
Touchpad
The instructions listed below describe how to use the touchpad.
1. First, place your fingers on the keyboard in the normal typing
position. The touchpad is easily accessible by moving either your
left or right thumb off the space bar and on to the touchpad.
2. Gently move your thumb across the pressure-sensitive touchpad in
the direction you want the cursor to move. The pad detects the
change in pressure and moves the cursor in the corresponding
direction.
3. The touchpad offers another method of making selections in a
software program. It is called double-tapping. This function
corresponds to double-clicking with a mouse. Once the cursor
has been moved to the object you want to select, lightly doubletap the pressure sensitive touchpad. This double-tapping on the
touchpad will select the desired item and prompt the software to
perform the related operation.
4. The buttons located directly below the touchpad are the same in
function as those on a two-buttoned mouse. Clicking these buttons
makes selections, drags objects, or performs a variety of other
functions depending on the software. To select an object, first move
the pointer over the object you want to select, and then press the
left button one time. The functions of these buttons are software
specific.
23
Chapter 2
5. Double-clicking is a common technique for selecting objects or
launching programs from icons. Once you have moved the
pointer over the object you wish to select, rapidly press the left
button two times. This action is commonly referred to as “doubleclicking” an object.
Dragging
There are two ways to drag:
•
Move the pointer to the desired location then press down the left
button. While still holding down the left button, move the pointer
to the desired location. Release the button.
•
Move the pointer to the desired location. Tap the touchpad twice
quickly as if you were double-clicking, however do not remove
your finger after the second tap. Move the cursor to the desired
location. Lift your finger to finish dragging.
Adjust the touchpad settings by selecting Settings/Control
Panel/Mouse/Buttons. These settings allow you to change the
orientation of the touchpad from right-handed to left-handed, and fine
tune the pointer movement and timing of clicks.
Touchpad Precautions
The Touchpad is a pressure-sensitive device. If not properly cared for,
it can be easily damaged. Please take note of the following
precautions.
•
Make sure the touchpad does not come into contact with dirt,
liquids or grease.
•
Do not touch the touchpad if your fingers are dirty.
•
Do not rest heavy objects on the touchpad or the touchpad
buttons.
Scrolling lines
If you are scrolling through a document, you may find that using the
scrolling line is more restful to your hand than holding down a mouse
button. The scrolling line is located on the touchpad.
24
Chapter 2

Battery Calibration
The first time you use a battery, you should calibrate it. The calibration
process empties and charges the battery one time. This allows the
Windows battery gauge to accurately monitor battery status. To
calibrate a battery, follow these steps:
•
Plug in the AC adapter.
Restart the computer and when the startup screen appears, press
Del key to enter the BIOS Setup Utility.
In the BIOS Setup Utility, select Advance settings. , choose Battery
learning, then press enter.
Execute Battery Learning function?
[OK]
[Cancel]
Press <OK> at the above Battery Auto Calibration dialog to begin the
battery calibration..
Battery Calibration will take from 4 to 8 hours, depending on how
much power the battery may already contain.
Note: For optimum performance, we recommend calibrating the
battery again every three months. Each time you charge and
discharge a battery, it loses a tiny part of its storage capacity, so that,
over time, it will store less than its potential charge. Similarly, if you do
not use the battery for a few days, it will slowly self-discharge, and
when it is recharged, it will hold less than 100% of the potential
charge.
42
Chapter 5
Monitoring Battery Power
There are two ways to
monitor how much power
the battery has left.
1. Click start/Control
Panel/Power Options;
then click Power
Meter.
2. Moving the cursor to
the battery icon on the
taskbar is the simplest
way to check on
battery power status.
If you do not see the battery icon, enable it in Start /Control
Panel/Power Options. Choose the Advanced tab and click “Always
show icon on the taskbar.”
Low Battery Alarms
How your computer responds to a low battery condition is set under
Start/Control Panel/Power Options/Alarms.
Two different power alarms can be enabled or disabled: the Low
Battery Alarm, and the Critical Battery Alarm. Use the slidebar to set
the power level at which the alarms are activated. Click on the Alarm
Action button to choose whether the alarm sounds, displays a
message, or both.
Warning: When battery power is low, the Notebook will display a
warning on the screen. Take immediate action, such as saving files or
connecting to the AC adapter, or data may be lost.
When the computer alerts you that the battery is low, immediately do
one of the following:
•
Connect the AC power adapter
•
Save your work, turn off the computer and replace the
discharged battery with a charged battery (See Changing the
Battery below).
43
Chapter 5
Do not restart the computer until you have connected to an AC
adapter, or replaced the discharged battery with a charged battery.
Battery Charging
When you use the AC adapter to connect your Notebook to a power
outlet, the internal battery will automatically begin to recharge. While
the battery is charging, the Battery Charge icon on the Indicator panel
will be active. When the battery is fully charged, the Battery Charge
icon will turn off.
If your computer is turned off or standby mode, a fully discharged
battery will take about 3 hours to recharge.
Note: A fully charged battery can run the Notebook for approximately
3.5 hours.
Power Saving Modes
Adjust the default power management settings in the Power Options/
Advanced dialog box in the Control panel. The Power Options
Properties dialog box allows you to set different actions to take when
the computer is left idle for a certain amount of time.
Suspend Mode
There are several possible settings for suspend mode, which can be
selected in the Power Management dialog box: You may have the
notebook standby, suspend, or you can power off the computer
altogether.
Initiating Suspend Mode
There are four ways to initiate suspend mode. The settings can be
adjusted in the Power Management dialog box:
•
The computer will automatically enter suspend mode when not
used for a set period of time.
•
Selecting the Stand by button in the Shut Down Windows dialog
box.
44
Chapter 5
•
Closing the screen cover (assuming no external monitor has
been connected).
•
Pressing the power button (if enabled in power settings).
•
Pressing the suspend function key <Fn> + <F4>.
Power Button Settings
The function of the power button can be set to Shutdown or Standby in
the Power Management Properties dialog box in the Windows Control
Panel. However, holding the power button down for more than four
seconds will force a power off while operating under any situation,
resulting in the loss of any unsaved information.
Power Saving Tips
•
Avoid operating the fax/modem, or audio and video applications
when using battery power. Operating a fax modem, video, or
audio equipment increases the computer's power requirements.
•
Decreasing monitor brightness can also save power. Decrease
brightness by pushing <Fn> + <F6>. Increase it by pushing <Fn>
+ <F7>.

Chapter 5
When to Replace the Battery
Over time, the battery's capacity gradually decreases. We recommend
that you replace your battery when you notice that it begins to store
significantly less charge.
Changing the Battery
Change the main battery pack as
follows:
1. Turn off the computer.
1
1
2. Close the screen cover and turn the
computer over.
3. Slide the side battery latch (1) away
from the battery. Continue to hold it
until the battery is removed.
4. Remove the battery.
5. Make sure the replacement battery is
properly orientated. Slide back the
side battery latch (1) then insert the
battery into the battery compartment.
Check that the latch locks back into
position.
Heat Considerations
The computer's processor has been specially designed to consume
little power, and generates very little heat. However, working in a hot
environment, or working for long periods may raise the temperature.
Your computer takes the following steps to lower temperature:
•
The cooling fan will automatically turn on. You may feel air
coming from a vent at the left side when this happens.
•
If the temperature continues to rise, processor activity will be
reduced. You may notice a slight loss of performance when this
happens.
