The RTC battery powers the RTC memory that stores your system configuration settings and the current time and date information. It maintains this information for up to a month while the device is turned off.

TECHNICAL NOTE: Depending on your system, the RTC battery may only charge while the device is turned on.

Power management

Your device ships with the power management options preset to a configuration that will provide the most stable operating environment and optimum system performance for both AC power and battery modes.

Changes to these settings may result in system performance or stability issues. Users who are not completely familiar with the power management component of the system should use the preset configuration. For assistance with setup changes, contact Toshiba’s Customer Support Center.

Charging batteries

TECHNICAL NOTE: The recharging of the battery may not occur when your device is using all of the power provided by the AC adaptor to run applications, features, and devices. Your device's Power Options utility can be used to select a power level setting that reduces the power required for system operation and will allow the battery to recharge.

The battery may not start charging immediately under the following conditions:

❖ The battery is extremely hot or cold.

To ensure that the battery charges to its full capacity, wait until it reaches room temperature (50 to 80 degrees

Fahrenheit, 10 to 26 degrees Celsius).

❖ The battery is almost completely discharged.

Leave the power connected and the battery should begin charging after a few minutes.

HINT: Once the battery is fully charged, we recommend that you periodically operate your device on battery power until the battery discharges completely.

Please make a complete back up of your data to external media before discharging the battery. For more

information, see “Backing up your work” on page 65

Charging the RTC battery

Your device has an internal real-time clock (RTC) battery. The

RTC battery powers the System Time Clock and BIOS memory used to store your device’s configuration settings.

When fully charged, it maintains this information for up to a month when the device is powered off.

The RTC battery may have become completely discharged while your device was shipped, resulting in a CMOS error message during startup. The error message may vary by device model.
