Introduction

This manual is designed to provide you with a short reference guide to the major features and functions of your assigned laptop. We are always happy to receive suggestions about topics you feel should be included in future versions.

The manual is available as a pdf [ portable document format ] file on the DELTA3 website athttp://www.sheridanc.on.ca/mobile/students. All of the manuals relating to laptop use at Sheridan can be found at this site.

Another useful link particularly for information on mail setup is the website maintained by Sheridan’s IT department - see screen capture at the left. The link is http://www.sheridanc.on.ca/~it. As you can see from the screen capture, there is documentation as well as News and Service descriptions.

These instructions on the first-timeset-upmust be followed very carefully, or you will have to return to the ITSC to have your laptop re-imaged. Please ask for assistance if you are unclear about the steps to follow.

Press the power on button to turn on the laptop. Wait until you see the dialog box shown below.

Initial setup goes through multiple reboots and hardware configurations. On the final boot you will be presented with a window asking you for your login name.

Enter your network login name in lowercase and clickOK.

[ A local account in the administrator group is created with your login name. ]

When you are presented with the next dialog box, remove the wordusername and key in your Sheridan network login name that you just keyed in the previous step. Do not enter anything on the password line, just clickOK.
