General safety guidelines
Always observe the following precautions to reduce the risk of injury and property
damage.
Service
Do not attempt to service a product yourself unless instructed to do so by the
Customer Support Center. Use only a service provider who is approved to repair
your particular product.
Note: Some parts can be upgraded or replaced by the customer. These parts are
referred to as Customer Replaceable Units, or CRUs. Lenovo expressly
identifies CRUs as such, and provides documentation with instructions
when it is appropriate for customers to replace those parts. You must closely
follow all instructions when performing such replacements. Always make
sure that the power is turned off and that the product is unplugged from
any power source before you attempt the replacement. If you have any
questions or concerns, contact the Customer Support Center.
Power cords and power adapters
Use only the power cords and power adapters supplied by the product
manufacturer.
Never wrap a power cord around the power adapter or other object. Doing so can
stress the cord in ways that can cause the cord to fray, crack or crimp. This can
present a safety hazard.
Always route power cords so that they will not be walked on, tripped over, or
pinched by objects.
Protect the cord and power adapters from liquids. For instance, do not leave your
cord or power adapter near sinks, tubs, toilets, or on floors that are cleaned with
liquid cleansers. Liquids can cause a short circuit, particularly if the cord or power
adapter has been stressed by misuse. Liquids can also cause gradual corrosion of
the power cord terminals and/or the connector terminals on the adapter which can
eventually result in overheating.
Always connect power cords and signal cables in the correct order and ensure that
all power cord connectors are securely and completely plugged into receptacles.
Do not use any power adapter that shows corrosion at the ac input pins and/or
shows signs of overheating (such as deformed plastic) at the ac input or anywhere
on the power adapter.
Do not use any power cords where the electrical contacts on either end show signs
of corrosion or overheating or where the power cord appears to have been
damaged in any way.
© Lenovo 2006. Portions © IBM Corp. 2004.
v
Extension cords and related devices
Ensure that extension cords, surge protectors, uninterruptible power supplies, and
power strips that you use are rated to handle the electrical requirements of the
product. Never overload these devices. If power strips are used, the load should
not exceed the power strip input rating. Consult an electrician for more
information if you have questions about power loads, power requirements, and
input ratings.
Plugs and outlets
If a receptacle (power outlet) that you intend to use with your computer
equipment appears to be damaged or corroded, do not use the outlet until it is
replaced by a qualified electrician.
Do not bend or modify the plug. If the plug is damaged, contact the manufacturer
to obtain a replacement.
Some products are equipped with a three-pronged plug. This plug fits only into a
grounded electrical outlet. This is a safety feature. Do not defeat this safety feature
by trying to insert it into a non-grounded outlet. If you cannot insert the plug into
the outlet, contact an electrician for an approved outlet adapter or to replace the
outlet with one that enables this safety feature. Never overload an electrical outlet.
The overall system load should not exceed 80 percent of the branch circuit rating.
Consult an electrician for more information if you have questions about power
loads and branch circuit ratings.
Be sure that the power outlet you are using is properly wired, easily accessible,
and located close to the equipment. Do not fully extend power cords in a way that
will stress the cords.
Connect and disconnect the equipment from the electrical outlet carefully
Batteries
All personal computers manufactured by Lenovo contain a non-rechargeable coin
cell battery to provide power to the system clock. In addition many mobile
products such as notebook PCs utilize a rechargeable battery pack to provide
system power when in portable mode. Batteries supplied by Lenovo for use with
your product have been tested for compatibility and should only be replaced with
Lenovo approved parts.
Never attempt to open or service any battery. Do not crush, puncture, or incinerate
batteries or short circuit the metal contacts. Do not expose the battery to water or
other liquids. Only recharge the battery pack strictly according to instructions
included in the product documentation.
Battery abuse or mishandling can cause the battery to overheat, which can cause
gasses or flame to “vent” from the battery pack or coin cell. If your battery is
damaged, or if you notice any discharge from your battery or the buildup of
foreign materials on the battery leads, stop using the battery and obtain a
replacement from the battery manufacturer.
Batteries can degrade when they are left unused for long periods of time. For some
rechargeable batteries (particularly Lithium Ion batteries), leaving a battery unused
in a discharged state could increase the risk of a battery short circuit, which could
vi
ThinkCentre and Lenovo CD-RW/DVD-ROM Combination Drive (Serial ATA) User’s Guide
shorten the life of the battery and can also pose a safety hazard. Do not let
rechargeable Lithium-Ion batteries completely discharge or store these batteries in a
discharged state.
Heat and product ventilation
Computers generate heat when turned on and when batteries are charging.
Notebook PCs can generate a significant amount of heat due to their compact size.
Always follow these basic precautions:
v Do not leave the base of your computer in contact with your lap or any part of
your body for an extended period when the computer is functioning or when
the battery is charging. Your computer produces some heat during normal
operation. Extended contact with the body could cause discomfort or, potentially,
a skin burn.
v Do not operate your computer or charge the battery near flammable materials or
in explosive environments.
v Ventilation slots, fans and/or heat sinks are provided with the product for safety,
comfort, and reliable operation. These features might inadvertently become
blocked by placing the product on a bed, sofa, carpet, or other flexible surface.
Never block, cover or disable these features.
CD and DVD drive safety
CD and DVD drives spin discs at a high speed. If a CD or DVD is cracked or
otherwise physically damaged, it is possible for the disc to break apart or even
shatter when the CD drive is in use. To protect against possible injury due to this
situation, and to reduce the risk of damage to your machine, do the following:
v Always store CD/DVD discs in their original packaging
v Always store CD/DVD discs out of direct sunlight and away from direct heat
sources
v Remove CD/DVD discs from the computer when not in use
v Do not bend or flex CD/DVD discs, or force them into the computer or their
packaging
v Check CD/DVD discs for cracks before each use. Do not use cracked or
damaged discs

Starting WinDVD
When you insert a DVD Video disc into the drive, the DVD Player software will
automatically start and begin to play the video disc. Under Windows XP, you will
be given a choice of which player to use from all the players installed on your
system.
If the DVD disc contains both video and program content, the program content
will automatically play. To view the video content of a video or program DVD
disc, go to the Start menu, launch WinDVD, and click Play.
With Microsoft Windows XP, you can also play DVD Video content by using the
Windows Media Player application.
Changing the DVD region code
Regionalization and Copy Protection (the DVD region code) uses the content
scramble system (CSS) standard to prevent unauthorized duplication of the
intellectual property rights distributed on DVDs. It was originally requested by the
Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) to address video piracy, but is
applicable to any content. CSS works by inhibiting the transmission of
unencrypted data without proper authorization. Playback systems must license
CSS to decode the encrypted data.
The CSS specification divides the world into seven unique regions. Content
designated for one region cannot be read by playback systems in another region.
While CSS is used to prevent digital copies of the DVD content, another
technology devised by Macrovision is used to prevent analog copies of the DVD
content. The Macrovision standard is a scrambling system widely used by the
movie industry to prevent unauthorized duplication of video content using
commercial VCRs. DVD playback systems must support both CSS and Macrovision
copy protection standards. The first time that you insert a DVD Video disc into the
drive, you will be prompted to set the region. If you relocate to a different region
of the world, you can use the DVD Player software to change the region code.

Windows XP, a UDF reader is included on the User’s Guide and Software CD. To
use the UDF reader, follow this procedure:
1. Insert the User’s Guide and Software CD into the CD or DVD drive of the
computer you want to use the UDF formatted discs with.
2. Click Start.
3. Click Run.
4. Type e:\UDF\language where e is the drive letter of the CD or DVD drive,
and language is your language.
5. Click OK.
6. Double-click SETUP.EXE and follow the on-screen instructions.
Notes:
1. The UDF reader is only needed on systems that do not have another DLA
program installed.

Appendix E. Lenovo Statement of Limited Warranty
LSOLW-00 05/2005
Part 1 - General Terms
This Statement of Limited Warranty includes Part 1 - General Terms, Part 2 Country-unique Terms, and Part 3 - Warranty Information. The terms of Part 2 replace or
modify those of Part 1. The warranties provided by Lenovo Group Limited or one of its
subsidiaries (called ″Lenovo″) in this Statement of Limited Warranty apply only to
Machines you purchase for your use, and not for resale. The term “Machine” means a
Lenovo machine, its options, features, conversions, upgrades or peripheral products, or any
combination of them. The term “Machine” does not include any software programs,
whether pre-loaded with the Machine, installed subsequently or otherwise. Nothing in this
Statement of Limited Warranty affects any statutory rights of consumers that
cannot be waived or limited by contract.
What this Warranty Covers
Lenovo warrants that each Machine 1) is free from defects in materials and
workmanship and 2) conforms to Lenovo’s Official Published Specifications
(“Specifications”) which are available on request. The warranty period for the
Machine starts on the original date of installation and is specified in Part 3 Warranty Information. The date on your invoice or sales receipt is the date of
installation unless Lenovo or your reseller informs you otherwise. Unless Lenovo
specifies otherwise, these warranties apply only in the country or region in which
you purchased the Machine.
THESE WARRANTIES ARE YOUR EXCLUSIVE WARRANTIES AND REPLACE
ALL OTHER WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED,
INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR
CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
PURPOSE. SOME STATES OR JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE
EXCLUSION OF EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO THE ABOVE
EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. IN THAT EVENT, SUCH
WARRANTIES ARE LIMITED IN DURATION TO THE WARRANTY PERIOD.
NO WARRANTIES APPLY AFTER THAT PERIOD. SOME STATES OR
JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON HOW LONG AN
IMPLIED WARRANTY LASTS, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT
APPLY TO YOU.
What this Warranty Does not Cover
This warranty does not cover the following:
v any software programs, whether pre-loaded or shipped with the Machine, or
installed subsequently;
v failure resulting from misuse, accident, modification, unsuitable physical or
operating environment, or improper maintenance by you;
v failure caused by a product for which Lenovo is not responsible; and
v any non-Lenovo products, including those that Lenovo may procure and provide
with or integrate into a Lenovo Machine at your request.
The warranty is voided by removal or alteration of identification labels on the
Machine or its parts.
© Lenovo 2006. Portions © IBM Corp. 2004.
E-1
Lenovo does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of a Machine.
Any technical or other support provided for a Machine under warranty, such as
assistance with "how-to" questions and those regarding Machine set-up and
installation, is provided WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND.
How to Obtain Warranty Service
Warranty service may be provided by Lenovo, IBM, your reseller if authorized to
perform warranty service, or an authorized warranty service provider. Each of
them is referred to as a “Service Provider.”
If the Machine does not function as warranted during the warranty period, contact
a Service Provider. If you do not register the Machine with Lenovo, you may be
required to present proof of purchase as evidence of your entitlement to warranty
service.
What Lenovo Will Do to Correct Problems
When you contact a Service Provider for service, you must follow the problem
determination and resolution procedures that we specify. An initial diagnosis of
your problem can be made either by a technician over the telephone or
electronically by access to a support website.
The type of warranty service applicable to your Machine is specified in Part 3 Warranty Information.
You are responsible for downloading and installing designated software updates
from a support web site or from other electronic media, and following the
instructions that your Service Provider provides. Software updates may include
basic input/output system code (called “BIOS”), utility programs, device drivers,
and other software updates.
If your problem can be resolved with a Customer Replaceable Unit (“CRU”) (e.g.,
keyboard, mouse, speaker, memory, hard disk drive), your Service Provider will
ship the CRU to you for you to install.
If the Machine does not function as warranted during the warranty period and
your problem cannot be resolved over the telephone or electronically, through your
application of software updates, or with a CRU, your Service Provider, will either,
at its discretion, 1) repair it to make it function as warranted, or 2) replace it with
one that is at least functionally equivalent. If your Service Provider is unable to do
either, you may return the Machine to your place of purchase and your money will
be refunded.
As part of the warranty service, your Service Provider may also install selected
engineering changes that apply to the Machine.
Exchange of a Machine or Part
When the warranty service involves the exchange of a Machine or part, the item
your Service Provider replaces becomes Lenovo’s property and the replacement
becomes yours. You represent that all removed items are genuine and unaltered.
The replacement may not be new, but will be in good working order and at least
functionally equivalent to the item replaced. The replacement assumes the
warranty service status of the replaced item.
E-2
ThinkCentre and Lenovo CD-RW/DVD-ROM Combination Drive (Serial ATA) User’s Guide
Your Additional Responsibilities
Before your Service Provider exchanges a Machine or part, you agree to remove all
features, parts, options, alterations, and attachments not under warranty service.
You also agree to:
1. ensure that the Machine is free of any legal obligations or restrictions that
prevent its exchange;
2. obtain authorization from the owner to have your Service Provider service a
Machine that you do not own; and
3. where applicable, before service is provided:
a. follow the service request procedures that your Service Provider provides;
b. backup or secure all programs, data, and funds contained in the Machine;
and
c. provide your Service Provider with sufficient, free, and safe access to your
facilities to permit Lenovo to fulfill its obligations.
4. (a) ensure all information about identified or identifiable individuals (Personal
Data) is deleted from the Machine (to the extent technically possible), (b) allow
your Service Provider or a supplier to process on your behalf any remaining
Personal Data as your Service Provider considers necessary to fulfill its
obligations under this Statement of Limited Warranty (which may include
shipping the Machine for such processing to other service locations around the
world), and (c) ensure that such processing complies with any laws applicable
to such Personal Data.
Limitation of Liability
Lenovo is responsible for loss of, or damage to, your Machine only while it is 1) in
your Service Provider’s possession or 2) in transit in those cases where Lenovo is
responsible for the transportation charges.
Neither Lenovo nor your Service Provider are responsible for any of your
confidential, proprietary or personal information contained in a Machine which
you return for any reason. You should remove all such information from the
Machine prior to its return.
Circumstances may arise where, because of a default on Lenovo’s part or other
liability, you are entitled to recover damages from Lenovo. In each such instance,
regardless of the basis on which you are entitled to claim damages from Lenovo
(including fundamental breach, negligence, misrepresentation, or other contract or
tort claim), except for any liability that cannot be waived or limited by applicable
laws, Lenovo is liable for no more than
1. damages for bodily injury (including death) and damage to real property and
tangible personal property for which Lenovo is legally liable; and
2. the amount of any other actual direct damages, up to the charges for the
Machine that is subject of the claim.
This limit also applies to Lenovo’s suppliers, resellers and your Service Provider. It
is the maximum for which Lenovo, its suppliers, resellers, and your Service
Provider are collectively responsible.
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES IS LENOVO, ITS SUPPLIERS, RESELLERS OR
SERVICE PROVIDERS LIABLE FOR ANY OF THE FOLLOWING EVEN IF
INFORMED OF THEIR POSSIBILITY: 1) THIRD PARTY CLAIMS AGAINST
YOU FOR DAMAGES (OTHER THAN THOSE UNDER THE FIRST ITEM
LISTED ABOVE); 2) LOSS OF, OR DAMAGE TO, DATA; 3) SPECIAL,
INCIDENTAL, OR INDIRECT DAMAGES OR FOR ANY ECONOMIC
CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES; OR 4) LOST PROFITS, BUSINESS REVENUE,

which you acquired the Machine to govern, interpret, and enforce all of your and
Lenovo’s rights, duties, and obligations arising from, or relating in any manner to,
the subject matter of this Statement of Limited Warranty, without regard to conflict
of law principles.
THESE WARRANTIES GIVE YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS AND YOU MAY
