Avoid leaving the base of your computer, or any other part that
becomes hot during operation, in contact with your lap or any
part of your body for an extended period when the computer is
turned on or when the battery is charging.
When the ac adapter is connected to an electrical outlet and your computer, it
generates heat. Do not place the adapter in contact with any part of your
body while using it. Never use the ac adapter to warm your body. Extended
contact with your body, even through clothing, may cause a skin burn.
Route the cables of an ac adapter, a mouse, a keyboard, a printer, or any
other electronic device, or any communication lines, so that they cannot be
pinched by your machine or other objects, walked on, tripped over, or in any
way be subjected to treatment that could disturb the operation of your
computer. Applying strong force to the cables may damage or break them.
To prevent damage to the hard disk and subsequent data loss,
before moving your computer, press Fn+F4 to put it in standby
mode or turn it off. Make sure that the standby status indicator
is on (is green) before moving the computer.

ThinkPad® Z61 Service and Troubleshooting Guide
Chapter 2. Caring for your ThinkPad computer
Though your computer is designed to function reliably in normal work
environments, you need to use common sense in handling it. By following
these important tips, you will get the most use and enjoyment out of your
computer.
Important tips:
Be careful about where and how you work
v Do not leave the base of your computer, or any other part that becomes hot
during operation, 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 dissipates some heat during normal operation.
This heat is a function of the level of system activity and battery charge
level. Extended contact with your body, even through clothing, could cause
discomfort or, eventually, a skin burn.
v When the ac adapter is connected to an electrical outlet and your computer,
it generates heat. Do not place the adapter in contact with any part of your
body while using it. Never use the ac adapter to warm your body.
Extended contact with your body, even through clothing, may cause a skin
burn.
v Route the cables of an ac adapter, a mouse, a keyboard, a printer, or any
other electronic device, or any communication lines, so that they cannot be
pinched by your machine or other objects, walked on, tripped over, or in
any way be subjected to treatment that could disturb the operation of your
computer. Applying strong force to the cables may damage or break them.
v Place liquids away from your computer to avoid spills, and keep your
computer away from water (to avoid the danger of electrical shock).
v Store packing materials safely out of the reach of children to prevent the
risk of suffocation from plastic bags.
v Keep your computer away from magnets, activated cellular phones,
electrical appliances, or speakers (within 13 cm/5 in).
v Avoid subjecting your computer to extreme temperatures (below 5°C/41°F
or above 35°C/95°F).
Be gentle with your computer
v Avoid placing any objects (including paper) between the display and the
keyboard or under the keyboard.

Caring for your ThinkPad computer
v Do not drop, bump, scratch, twist, hit, vibrate, push, or place heavy objects
on your computer, display, or external devices.
v Your computer display is designed to be opened and used at an angle
slightly greater than 90 degrees. Do not open the display beyond 180
degrees, as this might damage the computer hinge.
Carry your computer properly
v Before moving your computer, be sure to remove any media, turn off
attached devices, and disconnect cords and cables.
v Be sure your computer is in standby or hibernation mode, or turned off,
before moving it. This will prevent damage to the hard disk drive and data
loss.
v When picking up your open computer, hold it by the bottom. Do not pick
up or hold your computer by the display.
v Use a quality carrying case that provides adequate cushion and protection.
Do not pack your computer in a tightly packed suitcase or bag.
Handle storage media and drives properly
v Avoid inserting diskettes at an angle and attaching multiple or loose
diskette labels, as these can lodge in the drive.
v If your computer comes with an optical drive, do not touch the surface of a
disc or the lens on the tray.
v Wait until you hear the CD or DVD click into the center pivot of an optical
drive before closing the tray.
v When installing your hard disk, diskette or optical drive, follow the
instructions shipped with your hardware, and apply pressure only where
needed on the device.
Take care in setting passwords
v Remember your passwords. If you forget a supervisor or hard disk
password, Lenovo authorized service provider will not reset it, and you
might have to replace your system board or hard disk drive.
Other important tips
v Your computer modem might use only an analog telephone network, or
public-switched telephone network (PSTN). Do not connect the modem to a
PBX (private branch exchange) or any other digital telephone extension line
because this could damage your modem. Analog phone lines are often used
in homes, while digital phone lines are often used in hotels or office
buildings. If you are not sure which kind of phone line you are using,
contact your telephone company.

ThinkPad® Z61 Service and Troubleshooting Guide
Caring for your ThinkPad computer
v Your computer might have both an Ethernet connector and a modem
connector. If so, be sure to connect your communication cable to the correct
one, so your connector is not damaged.
v Register your ThinkPad products with Lenovo (refer to the Web page:
www.lenovo.com/register). This can help authorities return your computer
to you if it is lost or stolen. Registering your computer also enables Lenovo
to notify you about possible technical information and upgrades.
v Only an authorized ThinkPad repair technician should disassemble and
repair your computer.
v Do not modify or tape the latches to keep the display open or closed.
v Take care not to turn your computer over while the ac adapter is plugged
in. This could break the adapter plug.
v Turn off your computer if you are replacing a device in a device bay, or else
verify that the device is warm- or hot-swappable.
v If you exchange drives in your computer, reinstall the plastic bezel faces (if
supplied).
v Store your external and removable hard disk, diskette or optical drives in
the appropriate containers or packaging when they are not being used.
v Before you install any of the following devices, touch a metal table or a
grounded metal object. This action reduces any static electricity from your
body. The static electricity could damage the device.
– PC Card
– ExpressCard
– Smart Card
– Memory Card, such as xD-Picture Card, SD Card, Memory Stick, and
MultiMediaCard
– Memory module
– PCI Expess Mini Card
– Communication Daughter Card
v When transferring data to or from a Flash Media Card, such as an SD card,
do not put your computer in standby or hibernation mode before the data
transfer is complete. To do so might cause damage to your data.
Cleaning the cover of your computer
Occasionally clean your computer as follows:
1. Prepare a mixture of a gentle kitchen-use detergent (one that does not
contain abrasive powder or strong chemicals such as acid or alkaline). Use
5 parts water to 1 part detergent.
2. Absorb the diluted detergent into a sponge.
3. Squeeze excess liquid from the sponge.
Chapter 2. Caring for your ThinkPad computer
5
Caring for your ThinkPad computer
4. Wipe the cover with the sponge, using a circular motion and taking care
not to let any excess liquid drip.
5. Wipe the surface to remove the detergent.
6. Rinse the sponge with clean running water.
7. Wipe the cover with the clean sponge.
8. Wipe the surface again with a dry, soft lint-free cloth.
9. Wait for the surface to dry completely and remove any cloth fibers from
the computer surface.
Cleaning your computer keyboard
1. Absorb some isopropyl rubbing alcohol on a soft, dust-free cloth.
2. Wipe each keytop surface with the cloth. Wipe the keys one by one; if you
wipe several keys at a time, the cloth may hook onto an adjacent key and
possibly damage it. Make sure that no liquid drips onto or between the
keys.
3. Allow to dry.
4. To remove any crumbs and dust from beneath the keys, you can use a
camera blower with a brush or cool air from a hair drier.
Note: Avoid spraying cleaner directly on the display or the keyboard.
Cleaning your computer display
1. Gently wipe the display with a dry, soft lint-free cloth. If you see a
scratchlike mark on your display, it might be a stain transferred from the
keyboard or the TrackPoint pointing stick when the cover was pressed
from the outside.
2. Wipe or dust the stain gently with a soft, dry cloth.
3. If the stain remains, moisten a soft, lint-free cloth with water or a 50-50
mixture of isopropyl alcohol and water that does not contain impurities.
4. Wring out as much of the liquid as you can.
5. Wipe the display again; do not let any liquid drip into the computer.
6. Be sure to dry the display before closing it.
Care for the fingerprint reader
The following actions could damage the fingerprint reader or cause it not to
work properly:
v Scratching the surface of the reader with a hard, pointed object.
v Scraping the surface of the reader with your nail or anything hard.
v Using or touching the reader with a dirty finger.
6
ThinkPad® Z61 Service and Troubleshooting Guide
Caring for your ThinkPad computer
If you notice any of the following conditions, gently clean the surface of the
reader with a dry, soft, lint-free cloth:
v The surface of the reader is dirty or stained.
v The surface of the reader is wet.
v The reader often fails to enroll or authenticate your fingerprint.

1. Turn off your PC, then turn it on again.
2. Watch the screen carefully while your PC starts. When “To interrupt
normal startup, press the blue ThinkVantage button” message is displayed
at the lower left of the screen, press the blue ThinkVantage button. The
Rescue and Recovery workspace opens.
3. After the Rescue and Recovery workspace opens, you can do the

v Rescue and Restore your files, folders, or backups.
v Configure your system settings and passwords.
v Troubleshoot and diagnose problems using diagnostics.
For more information about using Rescue and Recovery features, see the
“Recovery overview” section of the Access Help.
Restoring factory contents
Instead of providing a recovery CD or a Windows CD with your computer,
Lenovo provides simpler methods of accomplishing the tasks typically
associated with these CDs. The files and programs for these alternative
methods are on your hard disk, which eliminates having to locate misplaced
CDs and problems associated with using an incorrect CD version.
The complete backup of all the files and programs that Lenovo preinstalled on
your computer resides in a hidden protected area, or partition, of the hard
disk. Although hidden, the backups in the partition consume hard disk space.
Therefore, when checking the capacity of your hard disk according to
Windows, you might note that the total capacity of the disk appears to be
smaller than anticipated. This discrepancy is explained by the contents of the
hidden partition.
The Product Recovery Program contained within this area enables you to
restore the complete contents of your hard disk to the same state as it was
when originally shipped from the factory.

Recovery options
Notes:
1. If the optical drive is not attached to your ThinkPad computer during
recovery, DVD software and CD-recording software will not be installed.
To ensure that they will be installed correctly, install the optical drive in
the Ultrabay Slim or Ultrabay Enhanced before performing a recovery
operation.
2. The recovery process might take up to 2 hours.
To recover the hard disk to its original contents, do the following:
Attention: All of the files on the primary hard disk partition (usually drive C)
will be lost in the recovery process. However, before any data is overwritten,
you will be given the opportunity to save one or more files to other media.
1. If possible, save all your files and shut down your operating system.
2. Turn off your computer for at least 5 seconds.
3. Turn on your computer. Watch the display carefully. While the message,
“To interrupt normal startup, press the blue ThinkVantage button” is
displayed, press the ThinkVantage button. The ThinkVantage Rescue and
Recovery workspace opens.
4. Click Restore your system and follow the instructions on the screen.
Recovering data
If you performed a backup operation using the Rescue and Recovery
program, you also have one or more backups stored that reflect the contents
of the hard disk as it existed at various points in time. These backups might
be stored on your hard disk, or a network drive, or on removable media,
depending on the options you selected during the backup operation.
You can use either the Rescue and Recovery program or the Rescue and
Recovery workspace to restore the contents of the hard disk to an earlier state
using any of the stored backups. The Rescue and Recovery workspace runs
independently of the Windows operating system. Therefore, you can start it
by pressing the blue ThinkVantage button when prompted during startup.
After the Rescue and Recovery workspace opens you can perform a recovery
operation, even if you are unable to start Windows.

Getting help around the world
If you travel with your computer or relocate it to a country where your
ThinkPad machine type is sold, your computer might be eligible for
International Warranty Service, which automatically entitles you to obtain
warranty service throughout the warranty period. Service will be performed
by service providers authorized to perform warranty service.
Service methods and procedures vary by country, and some services might
not be available in all countries. International Warranty Service is delivered
through the method of service (such as depot, carry-in, or on-site service) that
is provided in the servicing country. Service centers in certain countries might
not be able to service all models of a particular machine type. In some
countries, fees and restrictions might apply at the time of service.
To determine whether your computer is eligible for International Warranty
Service and to view a list of the countries where service is available, go to
www.lenovo.com/think/support, click Warranty, and follow the instructions
on the screen.
