Working in Comfort

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 Web site at www.hp.com/ergo. Thank you for selecting HP computing equipment. To optimize your comfort and productivity, it is important that you set up your work area correctly and use your HP equipment properly. With that in mind, we have developed some set-up and use recommendations for you to follow based on established ergonomic principles. Improper and prolonged use of keyboards and input devices are among those tasks that have been associated with repetitive strain injury (RSI) to soft tissues in the hands and arms. If you experience discomfort or pain while using any computing equipment, discontinue use immediately and consult your physician as soon as possible. In addition to the information on RSI given in this chapter, you may also consult the electronic version of Working in Comfort preloaded on the hard disk of your HP OmniBook (Start, Programs, OmniBook Library, Working in Comfort), or visit HP’s Working in Comfort Web site.

About Repetitive Strain Injury

Because your comfort and safety are our primary concern, we strongly recommend that you use HP computing equipment in accordance with established ergonomic principles and recommendations. Scientific literature suggests that there may be a relationship between injury to soft tissues—especially in the hands and arms—and prolonged, improper use of keyboards or other equipment requiring repeated motions of the hands and forearms. This literature also suggests that there are many other risk factors that may increase the chance of such injury, commonly called Repetitive Strain Injury. What is RSI? Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI—also known as cumulative trauma disorder or repetitive motion injury) is a type of injury where soft tissues in the body, such as muscles, nerves, or tendons, become irritated or inflamed. RSI has been a reported problem for those who perform repetitive tasks such as assembly line work, meatpacking, sewing, playing musical instruments, and computer work. 24 Setup Guide, Using the OmniBook Working in Comfort RSI also has been observed in those who frequently engage in activities such as carpentry, knitting, housework, gardening, tennis, windsurfing and lifting children. What causes RSI? The specific causes of RSI have not been established. Nevertheless, the incidence of RSI has been associated with a variety of risk factors, including: • Too many uninterrupted repetitions of an activity or motion. • Performing an activity in an awkward or unnatural posture. • Maintaining static posture for prolonged periods. • Failing to take frequent short breaks. • Other environmental and psychosocial factors. In addition, there have been reports associating the occurrence of RSI with the use of computer keyboards, mice, and other input devices. Also, certain medical conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis, obesity and diabetes, may predispose some people to this type of injury. What can I do to avoid RSI? Some people who use computers may experience physical discomfort during their use. This discomfort may be a symptom of a repetitive strain injury. Properly setting up and using computing equipment can help to minimize your chances of experiencing this discomfort. Well-designed and properly adjusted equipment alone may not be sufficient to eliminate all potential problems. Maintaining good posture and positioning when working on computers also has a significant bearing on your comfort. What if I experience discomfort? If you are experiencing any discomfort, seek professional medical advice immediately. Typically, the earlier a problem is diagnosed and treated, the easier it is to resolve.

Preparing Your Work Environment

When using HP computing equipment, it is important that your work environment contribute to your comfort and productivity. Setup Guide 25, Using the OmniBook Working in Comfort Your Chair It's very important that your chair provides a comfortable sitting position and offers the following features: • A stable base, such as five legs with casters. Make sure the casters are designed for the type of floor you have in your workspace, whether it is bare or carpeted. • A height- and tilt-adjustment feature. It should be easy to adjust your chair height from 40 cm to 52 cm (15.5 inches to 20.5 inches) as measured from the top of the seat pan to the floor. If you are much taller or shorter than average, you may need a chair that can be adjusted beyond this range. Adjust your chair so that the work surface or keyboard tray is at elbow height and your feet are flat on the floor with your knees slightly bent below your hips. Ideally, the seat pan should be able to tilt both forward (minimum of 5 degrees) and backward (minimum of 10 degrees). If the chair has an adjustable seat pan, inclining the seat slightly forward will transfer some of the pressure from the spine to the thighs and feet. This will relieve pressure on your back. • A curved seat edge. The front of the seat should be curved and finished in a “waterfall” edge. • An adjustable back support in both height and forward and backward tilt. It is important that the backrest correctly supports the lower part, or lumbar curve, of the back. 26 Setup Guide, Using the OmniBook Working in Comfort • A freely rotating swivel so you can move easily from side-to-side. • Fully adjustable and padded armrests. The chair arms should not interfere with adjusting the chair or moving it close to your work surface. Your Work Surface Ideally, you should be able to adjust the height of your work surface. A simple way to ensure your work surface is at the correct height is to first adjust the height of the seat-pan of your chair. With your chair properly adjusted and your feet firmly on the floor, adjust the work surface height until your forearms are parallel to the floor when you have your fingers on the keyboard or other input device. Your Work Posture Sitting in one position for long periods can be uncomfortable. To minimize the potential for physical discomfort or injury, it's important that you maintain proper posture. • Back: While sitting at your work surface, make sure your back is supported by the chair's backrest in an erect position or angled slightly backwards. • Arms: Your arms should be relaxed and loose, elbows close to your sides, with forearms and hands approximately parallel to the floor. • Wrists: Your wrists should be as straight as possible while using the keyboard, mouse or trackball. They should not be bent sideways, or more than 10 degrees up or down. • Legs: Your thighs should be horizontal or angled slightly downward. Your lower legs should be near a right angle to your thighs. Your feet should rest flat on the floor. If necessary, use a footrest, but double check that you have your seat height adjusted correctly before getting a footrest. Setup Guide 27, Using the OmniBook Working in Comfort • Head: Your head should be upright or tilted slightly forward. Avoid working with your head or trunk twisted. • Overall: Change your position frequently and take regular breaks to avoid fatigue.

Setting Up Your HP Computing Equipment

Make sure that all the elements of your HP computer system—monitor, document holder, keyboard, mice and other input devices, and headphones and speakers—are optimally arranged and adjusted to meet your personal requirements. The recommendations that follow will help you achieve this. Your HP Monitor It is important that your monitor screen be clean and positioned correctly to improve readability and help you work comfortably. Glare, high contrast, reflections, dirt and dust will interfere with what you see on the screen. The recommendations that follow can help you achieve a comfortable arrangement. • The top of your monitor screen should be at or slightly below eye level. Most HP monitors come with a tilt-and-swivel feature that makes it easy to adjust the screen position. 28 Setup Guide, Using the OmniBook Working in Comfort • To avoid obscuring your view, the screen should be positioned perpendicular to your line of sight; that is, straight on. • To avoid glare or reflection, try to position the monitor so the screen is at a right angle to your window rather than in front of it. If reflection or glare persists, tilting the screen forward may help. • Maintain a comfortable viewing distance to the screen. Most people prefer a viewing distance of approximately 46 to 76 cm (18 to 30 inches), depending on monitor size. Character size and the amount of space available on the work surface can affect this distance. • Text should be easy to read. To help ease eyestrain, adjust text attributes such as character size, spacing, and color. In addition, you will need to use the controls provided with your monitor to adjust the visual settings so that contrast and brightness levels are comfortable for you. High contrast and low brightness is usually the preferable combination. • The monitor should be free from flicker. If the image on your screen is not stable, the monitor may require repair or adjustment. • When possible, use a program that has a simple user interface, such as easily identifiable icons and pull-down menus. Also, screen information should be displayed in a structured and well-organized way. Monitor Use Specifications • When viewing your monitor, your head should not be tilted more than 15 degrees forward. • You should not have to look up more than 5 degrees above horizontal or down more than 30 degrees below horizontal for normal work tasks, such as typing or reading. Document Holders When keying in data from a hardcopy document, placing it in a document holder rather than on a flat surface will make it easier to read. The following recommendations should be observed when using a document holder: • The document holder should be at approximately the same height and distance from your eyes as the screen, and as close to the monitor as possible to prevent neck twisting. Some users prefer a document holder mounted to the monitor while others prefer the document holder positioned between the screen and keyboard. • If the primary task is to view documents rather than using the monitor, the document holder may be placed directly in front of the keyboard with the monitor slightly to the side. Setup Guide 29, Using the OmniBook Working in Comfort • To help reduce stress on your neck and prevent eye fatigue, try to minimize the movement of your head and eyes while using a document holder. Your HP Keyboard The proper positioning and use of your HP keyboard is important when using HP computing equipment. Be sure to observe the following recommendations to optimize your comfort and safety: • We recommend you place your keyboard in front of the screen or document holder, whichever is viewed the most. Your HP keyboard has long cables so you can place it in the position that is most comfortable for you while you are using your system. • Because HP keyboards vary in depth, you'll want to be sure that your work surface or keyboard tray has sufficient room to accommodate your model. The keyboard tray should be wide enough to hold both the keyboard and mouse or trackball: 66 to 71 cm (26 to 28 inches). • Your HP keyboard may have a kickstand that can be opened or closed to raise or lower the keyboard angle. If you are in the correct sitting position with your elbows at about the same level as the work surface, you may not need to use it. However, if your elbows are below the work surface, you may wish to use the kickstand to raise the back of the keyboard. • An adjustable keyboard tray may be useful if you cannot adjust your chair or work surface to the proper height for typing. It should adjust in height from 64 to 76 cm (25 to 30 inches) above the floor and tilt forward and backward to help you find the most comfortable position. Note that research has shown that there may be less muscle tension in shoulders and forearms with the keyboard tilted away from you. • When using your HP keyboard, remember it takes very little pressure or force from your fingers to activate the keys. Improper typing style—the use of too much force— 30 Setup Guide, Using the OmniBook Working in Comfort can place unnecessary stress on the tendons and muscles in your hands, wrists, and forearms. • Make sure that your hands are in a neutral position when you use your keyboard. This means that your forearms, wrists, and hands should be in a straight line. • The keyboard has a low profile to help prevent excessive bending of your wrists while typing. Literature suggests that you should not bend your wrists sideways or more than 10 degrees up or down. Keep your wrists straight by moving your entire hand and forearm over to use the function keys or numeric keypad. • You may use a palm rest to help keep your hands and wrists in a comfortable and neutral position when you are not typing. Some HP keyboards come with an integrated palm rest. If you use a palm rest, see that it is rounded and padded, and flush in height with the front edge of the keyboard. Note that your palms—not your wrists—should rest on the palm rest. If you don't have a palm rest, try not to rest your wrists on a sharp edge, such as a work surface edge. Mice and Other Input Devices Various aspects of using mice and other input devices may increase your risk of discomfort or injury. If you connect an external mouse to your OmniBook, observing the following recommendations may reduce that risk. • As with the keyboard, try to keep your hand, wrist, and forearm in a neutral position while using your mouse or other input device. • When using a stylus or light pen with a graphics tablet, don't grip the stylus tightly. Keep your hand and fingers relaxed and try to maintain a neutral posture in your hand, wrist and forearm. • If you use your thumb to rotate the ball on a trackball or spaceball, keep it in a relaxed, natural shape, and maintain a neutral posture in your hand, wrist, and forearm. Setup Guide 31, Using the OmniBook Working in Comfort • Hold the mouse gently by draping your fingers over it. Keep your hand relaxed and fingers loose. Do not grip the mouse tightly. • It takes very little pressure or force from your fingers to activate the buttons or scroll wheel on your mouse, scrolling mouse, trackball, or other input device. Using too much force can place unnecessary stress on the tendons and muscles in your hands, wrists, and forearms. • If you are using a scrolling mouse, be sure to keep your fingers and hand in a relaxed, neutral position when activating the scroll wheel. Also, this type of mouse features software that can minimize the number of mouse movements or button clicks. • When using a mouse, trackball, stylus and graphics tablet, or other input device, position it as close to the keyboard as possible, and keep it at the same level so you do not have to stretch while using it. • Use a good quality mouse pad to enable the mouse to work most effectively and reduce unnecessary hand and wrist movements. • Be sure to keep your mouse and trackball clean. Regular removal of accumulated dust and dirt helps ensure proper tracking and reduces unnecessary hand and wrist motions. Headphones and Speakers Listening to loud sounds for prolonged periods may permanently damage your hearing. To avoid discomfort from unexpected noise, always turn down the volume before connecting headphones or speakers to your HP equipment. When you put on the headphones, slowly increase the volume until you find a comfortable listening level, then leave the volume control in that position. 32 Setup Guide, Using the OmniBook Working in Comfort

Comfort and Safety Checklist

These recommendations are drawn from the latest available international ergonomic standards and recommendations, including ISO 9241 and ANSI/HFS 100-1988. General • Work Surface Height: Adjust either your seat height, work surface, or both, to position the work surface at approximately elbow height. • Work Surface Arrangement: Make sure frequently used equipment is within easy reach. For example, if you are primarily using the keyboard, place it directly in front of you, not to the side. If you are primarily using the mouse, place it in front of your hand or arm. If you are using both a mouse and keyboard, place them both at the same work surface height and close together. If a palm rest is used, the height should be flush with the front edge of the keyboard. Other items, such as your telephone or notepad, also should be considered. • Monitor: Place your monitor so that the top of the screen is at, or slightly below, eye level (up to 15 degrees). • Head: Do not tilt your head forward by more than 15 degrees, and try not to turn your head toward the side. • Back: While sitting at your work surface, make sure your back is supported by the chair's backrest in an erect position or angled slightly backwards. • Arms: Make sure your arms and elbows are relaxed and loose, with your upper arm perpendicular to the floor or slightly forward. Keep your forearms and hands Setup Guide 33, Using the OmniBook Working in Comfort approximately parallel with the floor with elbows bent between 70 and 115 degrees. Keep your elbows close to your sides (less than 20 degrees away from your body). • Legs: Your thighs should be horizontal or angled slightly downward. Your lower legs should be near a right angle to your thighs. Make sure there is sufficient room under the work surface for your legs. • Feet: If after adjusting your chair you cannot rest your feet comfortably on the floor, use a footrest, preferably one that can be adjusted in height and angle. Overall • Look away from the screen from time to time to help reduce eyestrain. Focus on distant objects briefly, and blink periodically to lubricate your eyes. You also should have your eyes checked on a regular basis and ensure your eyeglass prescription is suitable for working on a monitor screen. • Remember to occasionally shift position and move your body. Keeping your body in one position for long periods is unnatural and stressful. When prolonged work is required, take frequent short breaks. As a rule of thumb, a five- or ten-minute break every hour is a good idea. Short, frequent breaks are more beneficial than longer less frequent breaks. Data show that people who work for long periods of time without a break may be more prone to injury. • Changing tasks frequently will help prevent muscle stiffness. Examples: alternating between keyboarding, reading, writing, filing, and moving around in your work environment, helps you maintain a relaxed posture. Occasionally stretch the muscles in your hands, arms, shoulders, neck, and back. You should stretch at least as often as you take brief task breaks—at least once every hour. • Discomfort may be alleviated by using alternative ergonomic designs and accessories such as ergonomically personalized chairs, palm rests, keyboard trays, alternative input devices, prescription eyeglasses, anti-glare screens, and more. Seek additional information from the sources available to you, including your employer, doctor, local office supply store, and the information sources listed in the electronic version of Working in Comfort, which is preloaded on the hard disk of your HP computing equipment.

Your HP OmniBook Computer

You can use your HP OmniBook computer virtually anywhere, anytime. The following recommendations should help you work more comfortably. 34 Setup Guide, Using the OmniBook Working in Comfort 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 port replicators 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 other sections of Working in Comfort with Your HP Computing Equipment. Preparing 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. 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. If your notebook computer does not have a built-in palm rest, you can use a rolled-up towel. • 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 1.4 and 3.7 kilos (3 and 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

Setup Guide 37, 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, Advanced Power Management (APM) provides both manual and automated tools for reducing power consumption. • Power management options may be invoked manually at any time by pressing the appropriate key. See “To use manual power management with Windows 98” on page 39. • Power management options can also be set to occur automatically, based on timeout values that you have entered. See “To use automated power management with Windows 98” in the electronic User's Guide.

To manage power in Windows 95

APM is not available in Windows 95, but several power management features are built directly into the Windows 95 operating system. For example, there is a battery meter, you can put the IDE disk drive into low power mode, and you can manually suspend the system from the taskbar. You set these features using the Power applet in the Windows 95 Control Panel. In addition to these Windows 95 features, the OmniBook BIOS provides additional capabilities. For more information about the BIOS Setup utility, refer to the Tips and Troubleshooting file. (See "To get help from the OmniBook Web site" on page 52 for information on viewing the Tips and Troubleshooting file.)

To manage power in Windows NT 4.0

Phoenix Advanced Power Management is preinstalled, and it operates somewhat differently than Windows 98 APM. Consult the application’s Help for details. 38 Setup Guide, Traveling with Your Computer Managing Power Consumption

To use manual power management with Windows 98

You can shut down your OmniBook manually whenever you need to with any of the following three levels of shutdown.

System standby

See "Reinstalling NT Service Pack 5" in the electronic User's Guide. 58 Setup Guide, Solving Problems with your Computer Testing Hardware Operation

Testing Hardware Operation

The OmniBook DiagTools program provides two levels of testing: • Automated testing using the basic hardware test. • Advanced testing using individual hardware tests. The tests are designed to run after the system reboots. This ensures that the computer will be in a predictable state, so the diagnostic program can properly test the hardware components. The tests are nondestructive and are intended to preserve the state of the computer. The OmniBook reboots when you exit the program, so that drivers can be loaded.

To run the diagnostic test

You can run the diagnostic test from the hard disk—or from a diagnostic floppy disk, if you created one. 1. To run from the hard disk, reboot the OmniBook and, when you see the HP logo and message, press F10. –or– To run from a diagnostic floppy disk, insert the disk in the floppy drive and reboot the OmniBook. 2. When you see the initial diagnostics screen, press F2 twice to continue. If the initial diagnostics screen does not appear when you are using a floppy disk, run scandisk on the floppy. If you discover errors, create a new diagnostic disk, using a different floppy, before running the test again. 3. When the hardware detection finishes, check the list of detected hardware. If a device is not detected or fails its test, it may be configured incorrectly in the BIOS Setup utility. You can confirm the problem by running BIOS Setup and checking the settings. 4. Press F2 twice to run the basic hardware test. 5. If you want to run additional hardware tests, press F2 twice. From the advanced test screen, select and run the appropriate tests. Tests are not listed if no such hardware is detected. Press the following keys to run tests: Setup Guide 59, Solving Problems with your Computer Testing Hardware Operation ENTER Runs the highlighted test. F5 or SPACE Marks or unmarks the highlighted test. F6 Marks or unmarks all tests in the current menu. F7 Marks or unmarks all tests in all menus. F10 Runs all marked tests. 6. When you have finished running advanced tests, press ESC to exit. 7. If you want to view or save system and test information, press F4 twice to create a Support Ticket log file. (If you want to view the Support Ticket, press F7.) 8. Press F3 twice to exit and reboot. (If you used a floppy disk, remove it before rebooting.) If you saved a Support Ticket, you can also view it later. From the directory c:\dmi\hpdiags, run the file hpsuppt.exe. The Support Ticket will appear in that directory as hpsuppt.txt.

To create a diagnostic floppy disk

If diagnostic testing is not available on your computer when you press F10 during reboot, you can create a diagnostic floppy disk from which to run the test. 1. On any computer with Web access, download the diagnostic software package from the OmniBook Web site www.hp.com/omnibookto the hard disk. 2. Run the downloaded zip file to unpack the files on the hard disk. 3. Insert a formatted disk in the floppy disk drive and run diaginst.bat to create the diagnostic floppy disk. 4. Insert the floppy disk into your OmniBook and run the diagnostic test. 60 Setup Guide, Solving Problems with your Computer Recovering and Reinstalling Software

Recovering and Reinstalling Software

You can use the OmniBook Recovery CD to recover an original OmniBook build, or you can use it to install the HP custom software over a user-installed alternate operating system. The Recovery CD provides the OmniBook-specific Windows drivers to configure your custom system. The drivers for Windows 95, Windows 98, and Windows NT are different, so be sure to obtain the appropriate drivers for your operating system. You can find drivers: • On the OmniBook hard drive under C:\Omnibook\Drivers. • On the Recovery CD, under \Omnibook\Drivers. (Within this directory, the subdirectory represents your operating system: W95 for Windows 95, W98 for Windows 98, or Nt4 for Windows NT 4.0). • On the OmniBook Web site at www.hp.com/omnibook. This Web site contains the latest updates of software drivers for all three operating systems. Note You will find drivers for the operating system that was shipped with your OmniBook on the hard drive and on the Recovery CD. If you want drivers for one of the other Windows operating systems, please check the Web site.

To recover the factory installation of your hard disk

The following procedure describes how to recover the original Windows operating system and software that came with your OmniBook. CAUTION This procedure will format the hard disk drive. After the hard disk drive is formatted, you’ll need to reinstall any applications. Reformatting the hard disk drive will erase all data on the disk. 1. Back up all data from your hard disk. 2. Connect the AC adapter to the OmniBook. 3. Insert the bootable Recovery CD in the CD-ROM drive. 4. Reboot and, when you see the HP logo, press ESC twice. 5. Select the CD-ROM drive as the boot device, press ENTER, and follow any onscreen instructions. Setup Guide 61, Solving Problems with your Computer Recovering and Reinstalling Software You can find more details about recovering the factory installation of Windows on the Recovery CD: the file readme.txt is in the CD's root directory.
