Transportation Precautions

To prepare the Notebook PC for transport, you should turn it OFF
and disconnect all external peripherals to prevent damage to
the connectors
. The hard disk drive’s head retracts when the power
is turned OFF to prevent scratching of the hard disk surface during
transport. Therefore, you should not transport the Notebook PC
while the power is still ON. Close the display panel and check that
it is latched securely in the closed position to protect the keyboard
and display panel.

CAUTION! The Notebook PC’s surface is easily dulled if not
properly cared for. Be careful not to rub or scrape the Notebook
PC surfaces.

Sound Pressure warning

Excessive sound pressure from earphones or headphones can cause
hearing damage or loss. Adjustment of the volume control as well as
the equalizer to settings other than the center position may increase
the earphones or headphones output voltage and the sound
pressure level.

DC Fan warning

Please note that the DC fan is a moving part that may cause DANGER.
Ensure to keep your body from the moving fan blades.

Cover Your Notebook PC

Purchase a carrying bag to protect the Notebook PC from dirt, water,
shock, and scratches.

Charge Your Batteries

If you intend to use battery power, be sure to fully charge your
battery pack and any optional battery packs before going on long
trips. Remember that the power adapter charges the battery pack as
long as it is plugged into the computer and an AC power source. Be
aware that it takes much longer to charge the battery pack when the
Notebook PC is in use.

Airplane Precautions

Contact your airline if you want to use the Notebook PC on the
airplane. Most airlines will have restrictions for using electronic
devices. Most airlines will allow electronic use only between and not
during takeoffs and landings.

CAUTION! There are three main types of airport security
devices: X-ray machines (used on items placed on conveyor
belts), magnetic detectors (used on people walking through
security checks), and magnetic wands (hand-held devices used
on people or individual items). You can send your Notebook
PC and diskettes through airport X-ray machines. However, it
is recommended that you do not send your Notebook PC or
diskettes through airport magnetic detectors or expose them to
magnetic wands.
