Setting Up the Computer To install the battery

Your computer is shipped with the battery installed. If the battery has been removed, you can install it by inserting it into the battery bay on the bottom of your computer. Insert the back edge first, as shown, then press down the front edge until the battery latch clicks shut. Once you have installed the battery, connect the AC adapter to the computer and recharge the battery while you work. You can also replace a low battery with another that is more fully charged. WARNING Do not mutilate, puncture, or dispose of batteries in fire. A battery can burst or explode, releasing hazardous chemicals. A rechargeable battery must be recycled or disposed of properly. Startup Guide 15, Introducing Your Computer Setting Up the Computer

To connect AC power

Plug in the AC adapter, then connect the AC adapter to the rear of the computer. The battery starts charging. CAUTION Use only an HP AC adapter intended for this product, either the adapter that came with the computer or another authorized HP adapter. Using an unauthorized AC adapter can damage the computer and may void your warranty. Refer to the warranty statement for your product.

To connect a phone line

Selected models of the HP notebook PC include a built-in modem. If you prefer, you can instead use a PC card modem or an external modem to connect a phone line. 16 Startup Guide, Introducing Your Computer Setting Up the Computer 1. Plug one end of the phone line into the modem phone jack on the computer. Be sure it clicks into place. 2. Plug the other end of the phone line into a telephone jack. (If the phone line does not fit your telephone jack, you may need to use an adapter.) CAUTION Your built-in modem may not work with multiple phone lines or a private branch exchange (PBX), cannot be connected to a coin-operated telephone, and does not work with party lines. Some of these connections may result in excess electrical voltage and could cause a malfunction in the internal modem. Check your telephone line type prior to connecting your phone line.

To turn on the computer

Slide the power switch to the left—it’s the control above the left side of the keyboard. Windows starts automatically. If you are turning on the computer for the first time, go to “To set up Windows” on page 18. The power status light next to the power switch (see “Status lights” on page 14) reports the following: • steady green light: computer is on • steady amber light: computer is in system standby (or suspend) mode • no light: computer is off or in hibernate mode See “Managing Power Consumption” on page 28 for additional information about turning off your computer. Startup Guide 17, Introducing Your Computer Setting Up the Computer Hint If your computer does not turn on when operating on battery power, the battery may be out of power. Plug in the AC adapter and slide the power switch to the left again.

To set up Windows

Your HP notebook has Microsoft Windows—either Windows 98 or Windows 2000— preinstalled on the hard disk drive. The first time you turn on your computer, a Windows Setup program will automatically run so that you can customize your setup. Before you begin, connect the AC adapter to your notebook, since your battery may not be sufficiently charged to complete the Windows setup. Also, be sure to connect the notebook to a phone line; see “To connect a phone line” on page 16. 1. Slide the power switch to the left. 2. The Windows Setup program starts automatically. 3. Follow the instructions as they appear on the screen. During setup, you are prompted to: • enter a user name • accept the License Agreement You can also register your computer at this time. Follow the instructions on the screen during setup, or—if registration does not occur during setup—double-click the HP Notebook Registration icon on the desktop. Note You may be required to enter your Windows ID number. To locate it, look on the Certificate of Authenticity packaged with the Microsoft Windows manual or look for a sticker in the battery compartment. If you have any connection problems with your modem, try redialing. If that doesn’t work, you can skip registration for now.

To register your computer

Be sure to register your computer. Registering is free and fast, and it ensures you will receive quicker, more personalized support. The information you provide during registration will be used to provide you with better products and services. 18 Startup Guide, Introducing Your Computer Setting Up the Computer There are three ways to register: • by modem • by phone • by fax By modem If you have Windows 98, you are prompted automatically to register. To register by modem, see that the phone is connected, then follow the onscreen instructions. If you have Windows 2000, you are not prompted to register, but you can register by modem if you double-click the HP Notebook Registration icon on the desktop or click the Register link in the Windows 2000 welcome screen. See that the phone line is connected and follow the onscreen instructions. With either operating system, if you choose not to register right away, you can register by modem later by double-clicking the Registration icon on the desktop. This icon disappears after you register. If your computer does not have a built-in modem, you can register after you set up a PC card modem or an external modem—or you can register by phone or fax. By phone You can call your HP Customer Care Center and register by phone. Check “To call the HP Customer Care Center” on page 41 for the phone number. By fax If a printer is connected to your computer, you can print a copy of your registration and fax it to HP. You will find the fax number on the registration form. By completing registration, you will: • Record your ownership of the computer with Hewlett-Packard and gain access to service, support, and information. • Record your ownership of the Windows 98 operating system with Microsoft. If you have Windows 2000, please contact Microsoft separately for registration of the operating system. Startup Guide 19, Introducing Your Computer Setting Up the Computer

Startup Guide 23, Using Your Computer Working in Comfort with a Notebook PC

Working in Comfort with a Notebook PC

You can use your HP notebook computer virtually anywhere, anytime. The following recommendations should help you work more comfortably. Note that if you are using your portable computer as your primary computer, or using it for extended periods, you should use it with a full-size keyboard, monitor, and mouse. This will give your portable computer the adjustability and comfort features of a desktop unit. HP docking accessories offer quick, easy connections to these devices. More information on how to prepare your workspace environment and set up your HP equipment is available in Working in Comfort, which is preloaded on the hard disk in the HP Library and available on the Recovery CD in \hp\library—as well as at www.hp.com/ergo. WARNING Improper use of keyboards and other input devices has been associated with ergonomic injury. For more information about reducing your risk, visit our ergonomics website or see Working in Comfort in the online HP Library. Your mobile work environment • Use a chair that provides good support for your lower back. If an adjustable chair is not available, you can use a pillow or rolled-up towel to provide lower back support. • Try to keep your thighs parallel to the floor and your feet flat on the floor. In a mobile environment, you can do this by using a phone book or briefcase to support your feet. • Adjust the height of either your work surface or chair to keep your arms in a neutral position. Your arms should be relaxed and loose, elbows at your sides, with the forearms and hands parallel with the floor. • Position your notebook computer display to minimize glare and reflection. For example, on an airplane, lower the window shade; or in a hotel room, draw the curtains. You also should maintain a comfortable viewing distance—approximately 40 to 60 cm (16 to 24 inches). Adjust the angle of your display to help keep your head angled slightly downward in a comfortable position. 24 Startup Guide, Using Your Computer Working in Comfort with a Notebook PC Using your mobile computer • Position the computer so your wrists and hands are in a neutral position. Your wrists should be as straight as possible and should not have to bend sideways or more than 10 degrees up or down. Your HP notebook computer has a built-in palm rest, which is ideal for this purpose. • Try to type as lightly as possible. The notebook keyboard requires little force to activate. • Take frequent, short rest breaks—this is especially important in a mobile computing environment. • Portable computers weigh between approximately 1.5 and 4 kilograms (approximately 3 to 8 pounds). When traveling, be sure to carry your computer properly to minimize strain on your body. Shift the bag containing your notebook equipment frequently between your left and right hands and shoulders.

Traveling with Your Computer

Startup Guide 27, Traveling with Your Computer Managing Power Consumption

Managing Power Consumption

When you are not using your computer, you will want to maximize battery operating time without compromising performance. It is not necessary to turn the computer off in order to reduce power consumption and extend battery life. With Windows 98 and Windows 2000, Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) provides both manual and automated tools for reducing power consumption. • You can set power management options to occur automatically, based on timeout values that you have entered. See “To use automated power management” in the Reference Guide. • You can also invoke power management options manually at any time by pressing the appropriate key. See “To use manual power management” below.

To use manual power management

You can shut down your computer manually whenever you need to with any of the following three levels of shutdown. System standby Action Turns off the display and hard disk drive. When Press the blue standby button. Resume Press the blue standby button to return to your current session. System standby can also occur automatically when the timeout setting in the Power Management Properties window is reached. (In Windows 98 and Windows 2000, standby and suspend are equivalent terms.) 28 Startup Guide, Traveling with Your Computer Managing Power Consumption Hibernate Action Saves the current session to disk, then shuts down. Provides maximum power savings while still allowing you to recover the current session. When Press Fn+F12 (in Windows 2000 only). Resume Slide the power switch to the left to recover your current session. This takes several seconds. In Windows 2000, hibernate mode also occurs automatically when battery power reaches a critically low level; see “To respond to a low-battery warning” on page 31. In Windows 98, hibernate mode occurs automatically with low battery power, but manual initiation of hibernate is not available (except that, if you wish, you can modify the default setting for the power switch or the standby button to initiate hibernate mode instead). Off Action Turning off your computer provides maximum power savings. The current session is not saved and unsaved data will be lost. When Start, Shut Down, Shut down. Resume Slide the power switch to the left to start a new session. This will take several seconds. If the system stops responding and you are not able to turn off the computer as described above, you can still recover; see “To reset your computer” on page 20. Note When the system hibernates as a result of a critically low battery, you will find when resuming that all your data has been saved but that some functions may be disabled. To resume normal operation, restore power (by connecting AC power or installing a charged battery), perform a full shutdown, and then restart the computer. Startup Guide 29, Traveling with Your Computer Using Battery Power

Using Battery Power

You can operate the HP notebook PC on battery power for extended periods, but you should be prepared to save your work and shut down if the battery is low.

To check the battery status

From the battery status light The battery status light reports the following information: Green AC attached—battery full Amber AC attached—battery charging Red AC attached—battery will not accept charge (abnormal) 30 Startup Guide, Traveling with Your Computer Using Battery Power From the Windows taskbar The System Tray on the Windows taskbar includes a power icon that allows access to more detailed battery status information. The icon looks like a battery when AC is not connected. • Place pointer over the power icon to display a percentage of remaining time. • Right-click the power icon to view the options for displaying power information. • Left-click the power icon to display a menu of the available power schemes. From the status panel Press the status panel mode button repeatedly until you see the battery icon and the percentage of charge remaining.
