Getting Started

Turning on the computer

Charging the battery

Before you can use the battery to power the computer, you must charge it. Connect the computer to a live electrical outlet using the AC adapter and power cable. When the AC adapter is connected to a live electrical outlet, the system indicator panel’s AC power light ( ) glows green and the battery light ( ) glows amber. When the battery light turns green, the battery is completely charged and ready to power the computer.

Charging time for the battery varies depending upon the demand placed on the AC adapter. If the computer is off, the battery should fully charge in about three hours. If the computer is on, the battery will charge in four to ten hours, provided the computer is

not

consuming full power. If you are also charging a secondary battery housed in the Slim

SelectBay, charging time will be longer.

NOTE

Once the battery is charged for the first time, avoid leaving the computer plugged in and turned off for more than a few hours at a time.

For more information on battery use, see “Running the computer on battery power” on page 123

.

2

Lift the display panel.

To avoid damaging the display panel, do not force it beyond the point where it moves easily, and never lift the computer by the display panel.

Small bright dots appear on your TFT display when you turn on your computer. Your display contains an extremely large number of thin-film transistors (TFT) and is manufactured using high-precision technology. Any small bright dots that appear on your display are an intrinsic characteristic of the

TFT manufacturing technology.

Turning on the power

To turn on the computer:

1

Make sure any external devices (such as the AC adapter, if you plan to use AC power rather than battery power) are properly connected and ready.

2

Check to ensure that any floppy drives are empty.

3

Press and hold the power button in until the on/off light on the system indicator panel glows green—about one second.
