When using your notebook equipment, basic safety precautions should always be followed to reduce the risk of fire, electric shock and injury to persons, including the following:

Do not use this product near water for example, near a bathtub, washbowl, kitchen sink or laundry tub, in a wet basement or near a swimming pool.

Avoid using a modem during an electrical storm. There may be a remote risk of electric shock from lightning.

Do not use a modem to report a gas leak in the vicinity of the leak.

Use only the power cord and batteries indicated in this manual. Do not dispose of batteries in a fire. They may explode. Check with local codes for possible special disposal instructions.

To reduce the risk of fire, use only No. 26 AWG or larger UL Listed or CSA Certified Telecommunication Line Cord.

For TV tuner use: To protect from overvoltages and transients on the Cable Distribution System, make sure that the outer shield of the coaxial cable is connected to earth (grounded) at the building premise as close to the point of cable entrance as practicable, as required per NEC Article 820.93, ANSI/NFPA 70: 2005. If you have questions about your CATV installation, contact your service provider.

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS

For Authorized Repair Technicians Only

DANGER OF EXPLOSION IF LITHIUM (CLOCK) BATTERY IS INCORRECTLY REPLACED. REPLACE ONLY WITH THE SAME OR EQUIVALENT TYPE RECOMMENDED BY THE MANUFACTURER. DISPOSE OF USED BATTERIES ACCORDING TO THE MANUFACTURERS INSTRUCTION.

FOR CONTINUED PROTECTION AGAINST RISK OF FIRE, REPLACE ONLY WITH THE SAME TYPE AND RATING FUSE.

Recycling your battery

Over time, the batteries that run your mobile computer will begin to hold a charge for a shorter amount of time; this is a natural occurrence for all batteries. When this occurs, you may want to replace the battery with a fresh one*. If you replace it, it is important that you dispose of the old battery properly because batteries contain materials that could cause environmental damage if disposed of improperly.

Fujitsu is very concerned with environmental protection, and has enlisted the services of the Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation (RBRC)**, a non-profit public service organization dedicated to protecting our environment by recycling old batteries at no cost to you.

RBRC has drop-off points at tens of thousands of locations throughout the United States and Canada. To find the location nearest you, go to www.RBRC.org or call 1-800-822-8837.

If there are no convenient RBRC locations near you, you can also go to the EIA Consumer Education Initiative website (http://EIAE.org/) and search for a convenient disposal location.

Remember – protecting the environment is a cooperative effort, and you should make every effort to protect it for current and future generations.

*To order a new battery for your Fujitsu mobile computer, go to the Fujitsu shopping site at www.shopfujitsu.com in the US or www.fujitsu.ca/products/notebooks in Canada.

** RBRC is an independent third party to which Fujitsu provides funding for battery recycling; RBRC is in no way affiliated with Fujitsu.

Using the Keyboard

Your LifeBook P8010 Series notebook has an integral 82-key keyboard. The keys perform all the standard functions of a 101-key keyboard, including the Windows keys and other special function keys. This section describes the following keys. (Figure 8)

31 - Keyboard

Numeric keypad: Your system allows certain keys to serve dual purposes, both as standard characters and as numeric and mathematical keys. The ability to toggle between the standard character and numerical keys is controlled through the [NumLk] key.

Cursor keys: Your keyboard contains four arrow keys for moving the cursor or insertion point to the right, left, up, or down within windows, applications and documents.

Function keys: The keys labeled [F1] through [F12], are used to produce special actions that vary depending on what program is running. They are also used in conjunction with the [Fn] key to perform certain tasks, as detailed below under “Function Keys”.

Windows keys: These keys work with your Windows operating system and function the same as the onscreen Start menu button, or the right button on your pointing device.

Numeric Keypad

Certain keys on the keyboard perform dual functions as both standard character keys and numeric keypad keys. NumLk can be activated by pressing the [NumLk] key. Turning off the NumLk feature is done the same way. Once this feature is activated you can enter numerals 0 through 9, perform addition ( + ), subtraction ( - ), multiplication ( * ), or division ( / ), and enter decimal points ( . ) using the keys designated as ten-key function keys. The keys in the numeric keypad are marked on the front edge of the key to indicate their secondary functions.

Windows Keys

Your LifeBook P8010 Series notebook has two Windows keys: a Start key and an Application key. The Start key displays the Start menu. This button functions the same as your onscreen Start menu button. The Application key functions the same as your right mouse button and displays shortcut menus for the selected item. (Please refer to your Windows documentation for additional information regarding the Windows keys.)

Cursor Keys

The cursor keys are the four arrow keys on the keyboard which allow you to move the cursor up, down, left and right in applications. In programs such as Windows Explorer, it moves the “focus” (selects the next item up, down, left, or right).

32 - Keyboard

Function Keys

Your LifeBook notebook has 12 function keys, F1 through F12. The functions assigned to these keys differ for each application. You should refer to your software documentation to find out how these keys are used.

[Fn+F3]: Pressing [F3] while holding [Fn] will toggle the Audio Mute on and off.

[Fn+F4]: Pressing [F4] while holding [Fn] will toggle the built-in pointing device on and off. Note that the [Fn+F4] combination only works if Manual Setting is selected in the BIOS. (See “Entering the BIOS Setup Utility” on page 52)

[Fn +F5]: Pressing [F5] while holding [Fn] allows you to toggle between video compensation and no compensation. (Video compensation controls spacing on the display. When it is enabled, displays with less than 1024 x 600 or 800 x 600 pixel resolution will still cover the entire screen.)

[Fn+F6]: Pressing [F6] repeatedly while holding [Fn] will lower the brightness of your display. Note that adjusting the brightness using the keyboard changes the system setting.

[Fn+F7]: Pressing [F7] repeatedly while holding [Fn] will increase the brightness of the display.

[Fn+F8]: Pressing [F8] repeatedly while holding [Fn] will decrease the volume of your system.

[Fn+F9]: Pressing [F9] repeatedly while holding [Fn] will increase the volume of your system.

[Fn+F10]: Pressing [F10] while holding [Fn] allows you to change your selection of where to send your display video. Each time you press the combination of keys you will step to the next choice. The choices, in order, are: built-in display panel only, external monitor only, and both built-in display panel and external monitor.

Figure 9. Touchpad pointing device

The Touchpad pointing device comes built into your LifeBook notebook. It is used to control the movement of the pointer to select items on your display panel. The Touchpad is composed of a cursor control, a left and right button, and a scrolling button. The cursor control works the same way a mouse does, and moves the cursor around the display. It only requires light pressure with the tip of your finger. The left and right buttons function the same as mouse buttons. The actual functionality of the buttons may vary depending on the application that is being used. The scrolling button allows you to navigate quickly through pages, without having to use the scroll bars. Note that the scrolling button also acts as a fingerprint sensor. See “Appendix B: Fingerprint Sensor Device” on page 171..

34 - Touchpad Pointing Device

Clicking

Clicking means pushing and releasing a button. To left-click, move the cursor to the item you wish to select, press the left button once, and then immediately release it. To right-click, move the mouse cursor to the item you wish to select, press the right button once, and then immediately release it. You also have the option to perform the clicking operation by tapping lightly on the Touchpad once.

(Figure 10)

Double-Clicking

Double-clicking means pushing and releasing the left button twice in rapid succession. This procedure does not function with the right button. To doubleclick, move the cursor to the item you wish to select, press the left button twice, and then immediately release it. You also have the option to perform the double-click operation by tapping lightly on the Touchpad twice. (Figure 11)

WINDOWS CONTROL PANEL.

35 - Touchpad Pointing Device

Dragging

Dragging means pressing and holding the left button, while moving the cursor. To drag, move the cursor to the item you wish to move. Press and hold the left button while moving the item to its new location and then release it. Dragging can also be done using the Touchpad. First, tap the Touchpad twice over the item you wish to move making sure to leave your finger on the pad after the final tap. Next, move the object to its new location by moving your finger across the Touchpad, and then release your finger. (Figure 12)

Scrolling

Using the Scrolling button allows you to navigate through a document quickly without using the window’s scroll bars. This is particularly useful when you are navigating through on-line pages. To use the Scrolling button, move your finger forward or backward across the button to scroll up or down a page. When you have reached the desired section of the page, raise your finger.

The scrolling button is also used as a fingerprint sensor. To use the fingerprint sensor device, refer to the appendix of this document. See “Introducing the Fingerprint Sensor Device” on page 171.

Touchpad Control Adjustment

The Windows Control Panel allows you to customize your Touchpad with selections made from within the Mouse Properties dialog box.

37 - Touchpad Pointing Device

Volume Control

Your Fujitsu LifeBook notebook has multiple volume controls which interact with each other.

ANY SOFTWARE THAT CONTAINS AUDIO FILES WILL ALSO CONTAIN A VOLUME CONTROL OF ITS OWN. IF

YOU INSTALL AN EXTERNAL AUDIO DEVICE THAT HAS AN INDEPENDENT VOLUME CONTROL, THE

HARDWARE VOLUME CONTROL AND THE SOFTWARE VOLUME CONTROL WILL INTERACT WITH EACH

OTHER. IT SHOULD BE NOTED THAT IF YOU SET YOUR SOFTWARE VOLUME TO OFF, YOU WILL OVERRIDE

THE EXTERNAL VOLUME CONTROL SETTING.

Controlling the Volume

The volume can be controlled in several different ways:

Volume can be set from within the Volume Control in the system tray at the boittom right of your screen.

Volume can be controlled with the [F8] and [F9] functions keys. Pressing [F8] repeatedly while holding [Fn] will decrease the volume of your notebook. Pressing [F9] repeatedly while holding [Fn] will increase the volume of your notebook.

Volume can be controlled by many volume controls that are set within individual applications.

Certain external audio devices you might connect to your system may have hardware volume controls.

Each source discussed above puts an upper limit on the volume level that must then be followed by the other sources. We recommend that you experiment with the various volume controls to discover the optimal sound level.
