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:

When used at temperatures that exceed a low of 5°C or a high of 35°C (41° to 95° F). Extreme temperatures not only reduce charging efficiency, but can also cause battery deterioration. The

Charging icon on the Status Indicator panel will flash when you try to charge a battery that is outside its operating temperature range.

See “Status Indicator Panel” on page 28.

When using a high current device such as a Multi-Format DVD Writer, external CD-ROM drive,

DVD/CD-RW combo drive, or the hard drive, using the AC adapter will conserve your battery life.

Recharging the Batteries

If you want to know the condition of the primary Lithium ion battery, check the Battery Level indicator located on the Status Indicator panel. 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 that needs to be charged is installed in your LifeBook notebook and connect the AC or Auto/Airline adapter

There is no memory effect on the Lithium ion battery therefore you do not need to discharge the battery completely before recharging. The charge times will be significantly 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 Sleep mode, or turn it off while the adapter is charging the battery.

(See Power Management on page 56 for more

information on Sleep mode and shutdown procedure)

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 notebook will go into Sleep mode. There is no guarantee that your data will be saved once the notebook reaches this point.

.

Once your notebook reaches a point at which there is insufficient battery power, 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.

When your system suspends due to low battery power, your data can be maintained for some time, but if a power source is not provided promptly, the Power indicator will stop flashing and go out, meaning that you have lost the data that was not stored. Once you provide power, you can continue to use your notebook while an adapter is charging the battery.

Shorted Batteries

The Status Indicator panel uses an LED below the battery outline of the Battery Level indicator to display the operating level available in that battery. If this display shows a Shorted Battery (i.e., it is flashing red), it means the battery is damaged and must be replaced so it does not damage other parts of your notebook.

62 - Lithium ion Battery

Replacing the Battery

With the purchase of an additional battery, you can have a fully charged spare to swap with one that is not charged. There are two ways to swap batteries, cold-swapping and hot-swapping:

Cold-swapping Batteries

To cold-swap batteries in your battery bay follow these easy steps:

1

Have a charged battery ready to install.

2

Shut down your notebook and disconnect the AC adapter.

3

Turn your notebook upside down.

4

While pushing the battery bay release latches towards the battery pack, lift the battery out of the bay using the

latches to lift it (Figure 25).

5

Insert a new battery into the bay, and press it down so that the latches click into place.

6

Plug in the AC adapter and turn the power on.

Starting a DVD Movie

1

Insert the DVD into the optical drive of the notebook. If the CD AutoRun feature activates, skip Step 2.

2

The first time you insert a movie into the DVD/CD-RW tray, you will be prompted to select what you want the system to do when discs are inserted (e.g., start automatically or wait for a prompt). Until you make a selection, you will receive the same prompt whenever you insert a disc.

3

Click OK to close the About DVD Player Performance dialog box and the movie will begin.

Opening the Media Player Control Panel

With most DVD-ROMs, you have the option of altering how the movie should play and what you wish to view. You can do this by using the media player control panel and the mouse.

71 - Optical Drive

1

Right-click on the movie screen to open a dropdown menu for options.

2

Select View, then Player for all the controls available. This will open the control panel into the bottom of the screen.

Using the Media Player Control Panel

The media player software allows you to watch the movie much like a VCR player. You can pause, rewind, fast-forward and stop the movie at any point.

1

To pause the movie, click the on-screen button.

2

To rewind the movie, click the button to rewind to a specific portion of the movie, or the button to return to the opening screen.

3

To fast-forward the movie, click the button to forward to a specific portion of the movie, or the button to jump to the ending credits.

4

To stop the movie, click the button.

Exiting the Media Player

1

Click the

U

located in the upper right corner of the title bar. This will open a media player dialog box.

2

Click Yes to stop and exit the movie, or No to close the media player dialog box and return to the movie.

Using Media Player on Battery Power

Since optical drives consume a lot of power, your overall battery life will be significantly shorter when operating the optical drive continuously (such as watching a DVD movie) than during standard operation.

Many movie run-times are longer than your 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.

Memory Stick/Secure Digital Cards

Your LifeBook notebook supports Memory Stick, Memory Stick Pro, Secure Digital (SD), and Secure

Digital High Capacity (SDHC) cards, on which you can store and transfer data to and from a variety of digital devices. These cards use flash memory architecture, which means they don’t need a power source to retain data.

Memory Stick is a flash memory technology that allows you to record, transfer and share digital content, such as digital pictures, movies, music, voice, and computer data and applications.

Secure Digital (SD) Cards are very similar to Memory Sticks. Like Memory Sticks, SD Cards allow portable storage among a variety of devices, such as cell phones, Global Positioning Systems, digital cameras, and PDAs. SD Cards transfer data quickly, with low battery consumption. Like the Memory

Stick, it uses flash memory architecture. As the name implies, SDHC cards are high-capacity SD cards.

Your Fujitsu LifeBook notebook comes with a minimum of 4 GB (two 2 GB modules) of high speed Double

Data Rate Synchronous Dynamic RAM (DDR3-1066 SDRAM) factory installed. To increase your notebook’s memory capacity, you may install an additional memory upgrade module. The memory upgrade must be a dual-in-line (DIMM) SDRAM module.

Note:

Before you purchase additional module(s), be sure to check first to see whether you have one or two modules pre-installed. To ensure 100% compatibility, purchase the SDRAM module only from the Fujitsu web store at www.shopfujitsu.com
