1-2 Introduction

Setting Up Your System

This chapter describes how to set up and turn on/off your system. Just follow the steps in this chapter.

1. Selecting a Location

Before you set up your computer, it is important to choose a safe and convenient location that provides the following:

A large, sturdy desk or table strong enough to support the weight of your system and all of its components.

A flat and hard surface. Soft surfaces like beds and carpeted floors attract static electricity, which can erase data on your disks, damage the computer’s circuitry, and prevent proper ventilation.

Good air circulation. Leave several inches of space around the computer so air can move freely.

Moderate environment conditions. Select a cool, dry area and protect your computer from extremes in temperature, humidity, dust, and smoke. Avoid direct sunlight or any other source of heat.

Appropriate power sources. To prevent static charges, connect all your equipment to three-hole, grounded outlets. You need one outlet for the computer, one for the monitor, and an additional outlet for a printer and any other peripheral devices.

No electromagnetic interference. Do not place your system too close to any electrical device, such as a telephone, which generates an electromagnetic field.

Setting Up Your System 2-1

2. Checking the Voltage Selection

A power supply is integrated into the system to provide power to the mainboard, option cards, and peripheral devices. The power selection switch on the system back panel can be used to set the power supply to operate at 115V or 230V.

To verify that your system has the correct setting for your environment, check the voltage selection switch.

WARNING

If you set the voltage selection switch incorrectly, your system will be damaged. Make sure this switch is set correctly for your location before turning on your computer.

Using a tool such as an opened paper clip, slide the voltage selection switch to the correct voltage position.

3. Connecting Your Peripheral Devices

To connect the peripheral devices, refer to the Setting Up Your Computer.

WARNING

To avoid generating an electric shock, be sure to plug the power cord into the system before plugging it into the wall socket.

CAUTION

For protection of your computer and other devices during a lightning storm, or when it is left unattended and unused for long periods of time, unplug the computer and other devices from the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna or cable system. This will prevent damage to the computer and other devices due to lighting and power line surges.

Setting Up Your System 2-3

4. Turning the Computer On and Off

Follow the instructions below to turn on the computer or to turn it off.

Turning On the Computer

To turn on your computer, follow these steps:

1.Turn on the monitor, and any other peripheral devices connected to your computer.

2.Press the power button on the front panel of your computer.

3.The system will load Microsoft ® Windows ® .

NOTE

If the Restore CD is in the optical drive (D:) while your computer is booting, the computer will be booted with Restore CD. In this case, the “Microsoft Windows Startup Menu” menu will appear. To start Windows, remove the Restore CD and restart the computer.

Turning Off the Computer

To turn off your computer, follow these steps:

1.Before turning off your computer, save your information and close all application programs you use.

2.Click the Start button, and then click Turn Off Computer.

3.When the Turn Off Computer dialog box is displayed, click Turn Off to shut down the system.

4.Turn off the monitor and any other peripheral devices.

2-4 Setting Up Your System

Using Your Computer

To use your computer, you must install the operating system on your computer. Windows® may come with already installed on your system. To install another operating system such as OS/2 Warp or UNIX, see the manual that came with that system for instructions on installation and use. The procedures in this manual assume that you are using Windows® with your computer.

Using an Optional Floppy Disk Drive

To use your floppy disk drive, insert the diskette with the label facing up and the metal shutter leading into the drive, as shown below. And then slide the disk into the drive until it clicks into place.

Eject button

Floppy disk

When you want to remove the disk, make sure the drive light is off, and then press the eject button. When the disk pops, remove it.

NOTE

Never remove a disk or turn off the computer while a disk drive light is on. You could lose data. Also, remove all disks before you turn off the computer.
