Getting Started

Other precautions


Avoid placing your computer in front of a bright light that shines directly into your eyes.

If possible, use soft, indirect lighting in your computer work area.

Arms and wrists

Avoid bending, arching, or twisting your wrists. Keep them in a relaxed, neutral position while typing.

Exercise your hands, wrists, and arms to improve circulation.

Work habits

The key to avoiding discomfort or injury from strain is to vary your activities. If possible, schedule a variety of tasks into your working day. Finding ways to break up the routine can reduce stress and improve your efficiency.

Take frequent, short breaks to change position, stretch your muscles, and relieve your eyes. A break of two or three minutes every half hour is more effective than a long break after several hours.

Avoid performing repetitive activities for long periods.

Intersperse such activities with other tasks.

Focusing your eyes on your computer screen for long periods can cause eyestrain. Look away from the computer frequently and focus your eyes on a distant object for at least 30 seconds.

Other precautions

Your computer is designed to optimize safety, minimize strain, and withstand the rigors of portability. However, you

should observe certain precautions to further reduce the risk of personal injury or damage to the computer.

Do not apply heavy pressure to the computer or subject it to sharp impacts. Excessive pressure or impact can damage computer components or cause your computer to malfunction.

Some PC Cards can become hot with prolonged use. If two cards are installed, both can become hot even if only one is used extensively. Overheating of a PC Card can result in errors or instability in the PC Card operation.

Be careful when you remove a PC Card that has been used for lengthy periods of time.

Other precautions

Use only the AC adapter supplied with your computer or an equivalent adapter that is compatible. Use of any incompatible adapter could damage your computer. Toshiba assumes no liability for any damage caused by use of an incompatible adapter.

When you connect the AC adapter to the computer, always follow the steps in the exact order as described in the User's

Manual. Connecting the power cable to a live electrical outlet should be the last step otherwise the adapter DC output plug could hold an electrical charge and cause an electrical shock or minor bodily injury when touched. As a general safety precaution, avoid touching any metal parts.

Hold the power cable by its plug when you connect/disconnect it. Do NOT pull the cable itself. Doing so may damage the power cable and result in a short circuit or electric shock.

To connect AC power to the computer:


Connect the power cable to the AC adapter.



Connecting the power cable to the AC adapter


Plug the AC adapter into DC IN on the rear of the computer.

Other precautions


Connecting the AC adapter to the computer


Connect the power cable to a live electrical outlet.

If the electrical outlet is live, the system indicator panel’s AC power light ( ) glows green.

If the main battery is present, the battery light glows:

Amber while the battery is charging

Green when the battery is fully charged

If the battery light flashes amber during charging, either the battery pack is malfunctioning, or it is not receiving input from the AC power supply. Disconnect the AC cable and

remove the battery pack. See “Contacting Toshiba” on page 211.

Damaged power cables can cause fire or electric shock. Never modify, forcibly bend, place heavy objects on top of, or apply heat to the power cable.

If the power cable becomes damaged or the plug overheats, discontinue use. There is a risk of electric shock.

Never remove the power plug from the outlet with wet hands.

Doing so may cause an electric shock.
