Move your finger across the TouchPad (1) to move the cursor.

Press the left (2) and right (3) buttons located beneath the TouchPad to perform selection and execution functions. These two buttons are similar to the left and right buttons on a mouse. Tapping on the TouchPad is the same as clicking the left button.

Using the Keyboard

This computer has a close-to-full-sized keyboard and an embedded numeric keypad, separate cursor, lock, function and special keys.

Lock Keys and embedded numeric keypad

The keyboard has three lock keys which you can toggle on and off.

Lock key

Description

 

 

Caps Lock

When Caps Lock is on, all alphabetic characters typed are in uppercase.

Num Lock

When Num Lock is on, the embedded keypad is in numeric mode. The keys

<Fn> + <F11>

function as a calculator (complete with the arithmetic operators +, -, *, and /). Use

 

this mode when you need to do a lot of numeric data entry. A better solution

 

would be to connect an external keypad.

 

 

Scroll Lock <Fn> +

When Scroll Lock is on, the screen moves one line up or down when you press

<F12>

the up or down arrow keys respectively. Scroll Lock does not work with some

 

applications.

 

 

The embedded numeric keypad functions like a desktop numeric keypad. It is indicated by small characters located on the upper right corner of the keycaps. To simplify the keyboard legend, cursor-control key symbols are not printed on the keys.

It is an ultra-high performance, ultralow cost, and ultra-

 

 

 

 

low power fully integrated 10/100/1000 Mbps NIC/LOM

 

 

 

 

Ethernet.

 

 

 

• The AR8131L combines a 10/100/1000BASE-T GbE

 

 

 

 

media access controller (MAC), a triplespeed Ethernet

 

 

 

 

physical layer transceiver (PHY), and a PCI Express bus

 

 

 

 

interface.

 

 

 

• The AR8131L is compliant with IEEE 802.3u

 

 

 

 

specification for 10/100 Mbps Ethernet and IEEE

 

 

 

 

802.3ab specification for 1000 Mbps Ethernet.

 

 

 

• The AR8131L device combines pulse shaping, Tx/Rx

 

 

 

 

PCS, echo canceller, NEXT canceller, equalizer,

 

 

 

 

decoder, and timing recovery functions to deliver robust

 

 

 

 

signal performance in noisy environments.

 

 

 

• The AR8131L GbE controller supports checksum off-load

 

 

 

 

features for IP, TCP, and UDP, lowering CPU utilization

 

 

 

 

and optimizing network performance.

System Utilities

BIOS Setup Utility

The BIOS Setup Utility is a hardware configuration program built into your computer’s BIOS (Basic Input/ Output System).

Your computer is already properly configured and optimized, and you do not need to run this utility. However, if you encounter configuration problems, you may need to run Setup. Please also refer to Chapter 4 Troubleshooting when problem arises.

To activate the BIOS Utility, press F2 during POST (when Press <F2> to enter Setup message is prompted on the bottom of screen).

Press F2 to enter setup. The default parameter of F12 Boot Menu is set to “disabled”. If you want to change boot device without entering BIOS Setup Utility, please set the parameter to “enabled”.

Press <F12> during POST to enter multi-boot menu. In this menu, user can change boot device without entering BIOS SETUP Utility.

Navigating the BIOS Utility

There are six menu options: Information, Main, Advanced, Security, Power, Boot, and Exit. Follow these instructions:

To choose a menu, use the left and right arrow keys.

To choose an item, use the up and down arrow keys.

To change the value of a parameter, press F5 or F6.

A plus sign (+) indicates the item has sub-items. Press Enter to expand this item.

Press Esc while you are in any of the menu options to go to the Exit menu.

In any menu, you can load default settings by pressing F9. You can also press F10 to save any changes made and exit the BIOS Setup Utility.

NOTE: You can change the value of a parameter if it is enclosed in square brackets. Navigation keys for a particular menu are shown on the bottom of the screen. Help for parameters are found in the Item Specific Help part of the screen. Read this carefully when making changes to parameter values. Please note that system information is subject to different models.

Machine Disassembly and Replacement

This chapter contains step-by-step procedures on how to disassemble the notebook computer for maintenance and troubleshooting.

Disassembly Requirements

To disassemble the computer, you need the following tools:

Wrist grounding strap and conductive mat for preventing electrostatic discharge

Flat screwdriver

Philips screwdriver

Plastic flat screwdriver

Plastic tweezers

NOTE: The screws for the different components vary in size. During the disassembly process, group the screws with the corresponding components to avoid mismatch when putting back the components.

Related Information

The product previews seen in the disassembly procedures may not represent the final product color or configuration.

IMPORTANT: Cable paths and positioning may not represent the actual model. During the removal and replacement of components, ensure all available cable channels and clips are used and that the cables are replaced in the same position.

General Information

Pre-disassembly Instructions

Before proceeding with the disassembly procedure, make sure that you do the following:

1.Turn off the power to the system and all peripherals.

2.Unplug the AC adapter and all power and signal cables from the system.

3.Place the system on a flat, stable surface.

4.Remove the battery pack.

Chapter 3

39

Disassembly Process

The disassembly process is divided into the following sections:

External components disassembly

Main unit disassembly

LCD module disassembly

The flowcharts provided in the succeeding disassembly sections illustrate the entire disassembly sequence. Observe the order of the sequence to avoid damage to any of the hardware components. For example, if you want to remove the Mainboard, you must first remove the Keyboard, and LCD Module then disassemble the inside assembly frame in that order.
