Updating the OmniBook BIOS

Hewlett-Packard may provide updates to the BIOS to enhance the capabilities of the OmniBook. Updates will be available from HP Customer Care. Visit the Support website at http://www.hp.com/omnibook. Download the BIOS update to a floppy disk. CAUTION: Because a BIOS update replaces the previous version, it is important you follow these instructions exactly. Otherwise, the OmniBook may be damaged. The BIOS update process resets the configuration settings in the BIOS Setup utility, and it erases any BIOS passwords.

To update the BIOS

1. Remove any PC Cards. 2. If the OmniBook is docked, undock it. 3. Connect the AC adapter to the OmniBook. 4. Insert the BIOS Update disk in the floppy disk drive. 5. Restart the computer. 6. Follow the onscreen instructions. This starts a process that takes approximately 1 minute. Once the update process begins, do not interrupt it. 7. When the process is completed, reboot the computer again.,

Testing the OmniBook with HP Diag Tools

The OmniBook HP Diag Tools provide two levels of system hardware testing: • Automated testing using the basic hardware test. • Advanced testing using the 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 non-destructive and are designed to preserve the state of the computer. The OmniBook reboots when you exit the program so drivers can be loaded.

To create a diagnostic floppy disk

You will need to create a diagnostic floppy disk to run the diagnostic tests on an OmniBook XE. N OTE: If you have an OmniBook XE2, you do not need to run the diagnostics from a floppy disk; however, it’s a good idea to create a diagnostic disk in case something happens to your hard drive. After inserting a formatted floppy disk in the floppy drive, do one of the following to create a diagnostic floppy disk: • On an OmniBook with a factory software installation, run diaginst from the \Dmi\Hpdiags directory on the hard disk. • On any computer with World Wide Web access, download the diagnostic software package from the OmniBook website (http://www.hp.com/omnibook), run this file to unpack the files, then run diaginst to create the diagnostic disk.

To run the diagnostic test

1. If you have an OmniBook XE or XE2, insert the diagnostic disk in the floppy drive and restart the computer. or If you have an OmniBook XE2, restart the computer; when you see the HP logo, press F10 to start the diagnostics utility. 2. When you see the initial diagnostics screen, press F2 twice to continue. I n case the initial diagnostics screen does not appear: • If you ran the diagnostics from a floppy disk, run scandisk on the floppy disk. If you discover errors on the disk, create a new diagnostic disk, using a different floppy disk, before running the test again. • If you ran the diagnostics from the hard disk, create a diagnostics floppy disk (according to the procedure above) and then follow step 1 above. 3. When the hardware detection finishes, check the list of detected hardware. If a device is not detected or fails its test below, it may be configured incorrectly in the BIOS Setup utility. You can confirm the problem by running BIOS Setup and checking the settings. 4. Run the basic test. Press F2 twice to start the basic hardware test., 5. Wait until the test has finished. 6. If you intend to exit without running advanced tests, press F4 twice to save system and test information in the Support Ticket log file, HPSUPPT.TXT. Then remove the diagnostic disk (if you used one) and press F3 twice to exit. 7. Optional: Run the advanced tests. Press F2 twice to open the advanced test screen. 8. Select and run the appropriate tests. Tests are not listed if no such hardware is detected. Press the following keys to run tests: 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. 9. When you have finished running tests, press ESC to exit the advanced tests. 10. Optional: Save system and test information. Press F4 to create the Support Ticket log file, HPSUPPT.TXT. NOTE: If you ran the diagnostics from a floppy disk, the log file is stored on the diskette. If you ran the diagnostics from the hard disk (by pressing F10), the log file is stored on a hidden partition on the hard disk. 11. To exit, remove the diagnostic disk (if you used one), and press F3 twice to exit and reboot. 12. Optional: Check the Support Ticket log. The Support Ticket log file contains a list of all test results and errors. If you ran the diagnostics from a floppy disk, you can open the HPSUPPT.TXT file with a text editor, such as Notepad. To open a log file that was stored on your hard disk, go to the C:\DMI\DiagTools directory and double-click HPSUPPT.EXE; this displays the log file in Notepad.,

Using Power Management in Windows 95

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. Through the BIOS Setup utility, you can: • Enable or disable the power management feature. • Specify the amount of time before the computer goes into Standby, Suspend, or Hibernate mode. • Automatically turn off the hard disk or monitor after a period of inactivity. • Set the action of the blue power button. • Set options for resuming from Suspend mode.

To customize the system power management settings

1. Close all applications, then shut down Windows and restart the OmniBook. 2. When you see the HP logo, press F2 to enter the BIOS Setup utility. 3. Press the RIGHT arrow key to point to the Power menu. 4. Press the DOWN arrow key to go to the option you wish to change. (See the Power (APM) Menu table for descriptions of the various options). NOTE: In order to change any of the timeout settings, you must first set the Power Savings option to Customize. 5. Press F5 or F6 until you have selected the desired value. 6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 to change other power settings 7. When you’re finished, press F10 or use the Exit menu to exit the BIOS Setup utility.,

Using Enhanced Video and Dual Monitors

(Windows 95 and Windows 98) Standard video drivers are installed on your OmniBook for various settings of screen area and colors, as well as for screen zoom capabilities. If you wish to use additional video features such as Stretch and Rotate, you can install a supplemental video driver. You also need to install this video driver in order to use your OmniBook with dual monitors in Windows 95.

To install the supplemental video driver

1. In Windows Explorer, open the folder c:\omnibook\drivers\video\control. 2. Double-click Setup. 3. Click Start, Settings, Control Panel 4. Double-click Display. 5. Select the Settings tab, choose either High Color (16 bit) or True Color (24 bit), and click OK. D o not select 256 colors, since the background is sometimes distorted.

To use the video control panel

After you have installed the supplemental video driver, a video control panel is available. 1. Click Start, Settings, Control Panel. 2. Double-click Display. 3. Select the LynxE tab and use the controls available there for additional features, such as Stretch and Rotate, turning LCD (built-in display) and CRT (external monitor) on and off, and enabling video hot keys.

To use two monitors in dual mode

You can use two monitors with your OmniBook, either in dual mode, effectively expanding your screen real estate, or in simultaneous mode, displaying the same screen twice. NOTE: Windows NT 4.0 does not support dual display mode. The LCD monitor that is part of the OmniBook is the primary display (Monitor 1), and a second CRT monitor attached to the rear video port is the secondary display (Monitor 2). You can also switch from one monitor to the other (using only one at a time) by pressing Fn+F12. To enable the dual monitor display in Windows 95 or Windows 98: NOTE: In Windows 95, you must first install the supplemental video driver (see instructions above). 1. Click Start, Settings, Control Panel. 2. Double-click Display. 3. Select the Settings tab., 4. Position the second monitor to the right or left of your OmniBook display to match your monitor location. 5. Select each monitor and set the colors and screen area to the desired values. The following settings support dual display mode: • Set a 12.1-inch display to 256 colors or High Color (16 Bit) with an 800×600 screen area. (If you have upgraded your video memory to 4MB, your settings should be the same as for 2MB.) • Set a 13.3-inch display to 256 colors with a 1024×768 screen area. (If you have upgraded your video memory to 4MB, you can choose 256 colors or High Color.) 6. Make sure that the Settings box “Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor” is checked. Here are some other limitations to be aware of as you choose your monitor settings: • The sum of the video memory used by both monitors must be less than the total video memory size. Your OmniBook comes with 2 MB memory installed. • Monitor 1 has to be in the same resolution as the panel size. For example, if the panel is 800×600, the resolution selected for the Monitor1 must be exactly 800×600 in order to enable dual display mode. • Monitor 1 can be set to 256 colors or High Color (16 Bit), not True Color (24 bit), since Virtual Refresh can be supported only in 256 color and High Color (16 Bit) modes. Monitor 2 can be set to 256 colors or High Color (16 Bit) only, unless you have added video memory to the standard 2 MB configuration. • Monitor 1 and Monitor 2 cannot both be in 256 color mode. • Settings cannot be changed on Monitor 2 if DirectDraw is enabled—for example, if video is playing—since the display driver cannot reallocate the display memory for dual display support. • Under dual display mode, only the software cursor can be used. There is no hardware cursor available under Virtual Refresh mode. • Dual display mode is not available if you are currently in a special mode from the LynxE video control panel settings, such as Rotation or Stretch. • Games that use the DirectDraw API cannot run in dual display mode. You will be prompted to disable Monitor 2 before running the game.,

Expanding the Hibernate Partition When Adding RAM

The OmniBook comes with either 32 or 64 megabytes (MB) of random access memory (RAM) installed, and the size of the Hibernate partition is set appropriately. You can add up to 128 MB of additional RAM without changing the size of the Hibernate partition. However, if you add more than 128 MB of additional RAM, so that your total RAM is greater than 192 MB, you must change the size of the Hibernate partition. This partition is automatically used to save your current session from RAM when battery level is low. As a result, you must provide a sufficiently large Hibernate partition to accommodate all the information stored in RAM; otherwise, you risk losing work in progress.
