Reference Guide 19, Getting Started with Your HP Notebook Setting Up Your Computer

Setting Up Your Computer

WARNING Improper use of keyboards and other input devices has been associated with ergonomic injury. For information about reducing your risk, see Working in Comfort in the online HP Library, or visit our ergonomics Web site, www.hp.com/ergo. For a summary about working with a notebook computer, see “Working in Comfort with a Notebook PC” on page 44. If you are using your notebook computer as your primary computer, or using it for extended periods, you should use it with a full-size keyboard, monitor, and mouse. HP docking accessories offer quick, easy connections to these devices. This can reduce the risk of ergonomic injury. See Working in Comfort in the online HP Library. When you set up your computer for the first time, you’ll install and charge the battery, connect the AC adapter, turn on the computer, and run the Windows setup program.

Step 1: Install the battery

WARNING Do not mutilate or puncture batteries. Do not dispose of batteries in fire, or they can burst or explode, releasing hazardous chemicals. Rechargeable batteries must be recycled or disposed of properly. Your computer is shipped with the battery installed. If the battery has been removed, you should install it: 1. Turn the computer upside down. 20 Reference Guide, Getting Started with Your HP Notebook Setting Up Your Computer 2. Insert the front (rounded) end of the battery into the battery compartment on the bottom of the computer, and lower the back end in until it clicks into place. To remove the battery 1. Before removing the battery, do one of the following: • Shut down the computer or put it into Hibernate mode, or • Plug in the AC adapter. 2. Slide the battery’s release latch, then lift the battery out of its compartment. Reference Guide 21, Getting Started with Your HP Notebook Setting Up Your Computer

Step 2: Connect AC power

CAUTION Use only the HP AC adapter included with your computer (or other approved 75- watt, 3.95-amp adapter). Do not use a 60-watt, 3.16-amp adapter, such as HP F1454A or F1781A. Using any other AC adapter could damage the computer or adapter and may void your warranty (see "Hewlett-Packard Limited Warranty Statement" on page 135). • Plug in the AC adapter, and connect it to the AC adapter jack on the back of the computer. The computer’s battery then starts charging. While the battery is charging, you can continue with step 3. 22 Reference Guide, Getting Started with Your HP Notebook Setting Up Your Computer

Step 3: Connect a phone line

If your computer does not include a built-in modem, you can skip this step. Also, if you prefer, you can instead connect to a PC Card modem or an external modem. 1. Make sure the telephone line is an analog line, sometimes called a data line. (You must not use a digital line.) 2. Connect the telephone cord into a telephone jack. If the plug on the phone cord doesn’t fit the jack, you may need to use an adapter. 3. Plug the other end of the phone cord into the built-in modem. For details about using the modem, see “Using the Modem” on page 58. Reference Guide 23, Getting Started with Your HP Notebook Setting Up Your Computer

Step 4: Turn on the computer

• Press the blue sleep button above the keyboard. The computer then boots up, and Windows starts automatically. 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 press the blue sleep button again. Leave the AC adapter plugged in for at least an hour—or 2–3 hours to charge it fully.

Step 5: Set up Windows

Your notebook computer has Microsoft Windows preinstalled on its hard disk drive. The first time you turn on your computer, the Windows Setup program runs automatically so you can customize your setup. 1. Follow the Setup program’s instructions as they appear on the screen. If the program prompts you to enter the Product ID code, you will find this code on the bottom of the computer. 2. If your computer has a modem, check the modem’s country or region settings: • Windows 2000: click Start, Settings, Control Panel, double-click Phone and Modem Options, then click Edit on the Dialing Rules tab. • Windows XP: click Start, Control Panel, Printers and Other Hardware, Phone and Modem Options, then click Edit on the Dialing Rules tab. 24 Reference Guide, Getting Started with Your HP Notebook Setting Up Your Computer

Step 6: Register your notebook

Be sure to register your computer. Registering is free and fast, and ensures you will receive quicker, more personalized support. The information you provide during registration allows us to provide you with better products and services. Registering your computer does the following: • Records your ownership of the computer with Hewlett-Packard and provides access to service, support, and information. • Records your ownership of the Windows XP operating system with Microsoft. If you have Windows 2000, please contact Microsoft separately to register the operating system. If you decide not to register during Windows setup, choose the option to print the registration form, and then fax it to HP at the fax number on the form. Or you can register by calling HP Customer Care—see “To contact HP for support or service”on page 130 to find the phone number.

What to do next

Here are a few things you may want to try at this point: • If you’re not familiar with the version of Windows installed on your computer, click Start, Help (Windows 2000) or Start, Tour Windows XP, or check the Windows manual to discover what’s new. • If your computer includes a DVD drive or CD-RW drive, you also received special software for the drive—find the software CD in the box. Click Start, Programs (Windows 2000) or Start, All Programs, Multimedia (Windows XP)—if the software isn’t listed, install it by inserting the CD in the drive. Follow the instructions displayed—run Setup on the CD if it doesn’t run automatically. See the online Reference Guide to learn more about using and maintaining your computer.

To connect to the Internet

If you are connected to a wired or wireless LAN with Internet access or your computer has a modem (built-in, PC Card, or external), you can connect to the Internet. For details, see “Using the Modem” on page 58, “Connecting to a LAN” on page 65, or “Making Wireless Connections” on page 66. Reference Guide 25,

See “How the computer manages power automatically” on page 50. 28 Reference Guide, Basic Operation Operating Your Computer

To reset the computer

Occasionally, you may find that Windows or the computer has stopped responding, and will not let you turn the computer off. If this happens, try the following in the order listed. • If possible, shut down Windows: Windows 2000: press CTRL+ALT+DEL, click Shut Down, and press the blue sleep button to restart. Windows XP: press CTRL+ALT+DEL, then click Shut Down, Restart. –or, if this fails– • Slide and hold the power button for 4 seconds, until the display shuts down, then press the blue sleep button to restart. –or, if this fails– • Insert a straightened paper clip into the system-off switch on the right side of the computer, then press the blue sleep button to restart. Reference Guide 29, Basic Operation Operating Your Computer

To change the boot device

The computer normally boots from its internal hard disk. You can also boot the computer from a floppy disk drive in the module bay, a CD-ROM or similar drive in the module bay, or an internal network interface card. 1. Click Start, Shut Down (or Turn Off Computer), Restart. 2. When the HP logo appears, press ESC to display the Boot menu. 3. Use the arrow keys to select the boot device, and press ENTER. If you want to boot from a specific device whenever it is present, change the boot order using the BIOS Setup utility—see “To run the BIOS Setup utility” on page 120.

To use the pointing devices

Model with pointing stick and touch pad Your computer includes two built-in pointing devices: the pointing stick and touch pad. 1. Pointing stick (pressure-sensitive pointing device). 2. Click buttons and scroll button. The click buttons work like the left and right buttons on a standard mouse. The scroll button scrolls the contents of a window. 3. Touch pad (touch-sensitive pointing device). 4. Click buttons. These also work like the left and right buttons on a standard mouse. 30 Reference Guide, Basic Operation Operating Your Computer Model with touch pad only The touch pad includes an on-off button so you can turn off the touch pad to avoid moving the pointer accidentally. The indicator light turns off when you turn off the touch pad. 1. Touch pad on-off button and indicator light. 2. Touch pad (touch-sensitive pointing device). 3. Click buttons and scroll button. The click buttons work like the left and right buttons on a standard mouse. The scroll button scrolls the contents of a window. Moving and selecting 1. Place your hands in a normal typing position. 2. Pointing stick. With your index finger, press the pointing stick in the direction you want the pointer to move. Touch pad. Move a thumb or finger across the touch pad in the direction you want the pointer to move. 3. Use the left and right click buttons, which function like the left and right buttons on a mouse, to make your selection: • To open an application, move the pointer over the icon and double-click the left button. • To make menu selections, move the pointer to the menu item and click the left button. • To open the shortcut menu for an item, move the pointer over the item and click the right button. • To drag an item, move the pointer over the item. Then press and hold the left button while you move the pointer to the new location, and release the button. Reference Guide 31, Basic Operation Operating Your Computer In addition, you can tap the touch pad to select items and use other advanced touch pad features. For more information, double-click the touch pad icon in the taskbar, then click Help in the tab for a particular feature. You can use Mouse in Control Panel or the touch pad icon in the taskbar to customize the operation of your computer’s pointing devices (pointing stick, touch pad, and external mouse): you can change the left, right, and scroll button actions, double-click speed, pointer speed, and more. Scrolling with the scroll button • Press the lower end of the scroll button to scroll down through the contents of a window. Press the upper end to scroll up. Disabling one pointing device (model with pointing stick) If you prefer to use only one of your computer’s built-in pointing devices, you can disable the other.

Reference Guide 53, Batteries and Power Management Using Battery Power

To respond to a low-battery warning

The computer automatically alerts you when the battery power drops to a critically low level. The computer first emits a high-pitched beep or displays a warning message. Then, if you do not restore power within a short time, the computer goes into Hibernate mode. Once the computer enters Hibernate mode in this way, you won’t be able to turn it on again until you restore power by doing one of the following: • Replace the battery with a charged one. See “Step 1: Install the battery” on page 20. • Plug in the AC adapter. See “Step 2: Connect AC power” on page 22. • Install a charged secondary battery in the plug-in module bay. See “To use additional batteries” on page 55. Note If you plug in the AC adapter, you can continue to work while your battery recharges.

To recharge the battery

CAUTION The AC adapter is normally warm whenever plugged into an AC outlet. The computer is normally warm while recharging. Don’t recharge the computer in a briefcase or other confined space, or its battery could overheat. • To recharge the main battery, plug the AC adapter into the computer. • To recharge a secondary battery, plug the AC adapter into the computer and insert the battery into the module bay. The main battery will recharge first, then the secondary battery will recharge. To get the longest operating time, wait until the battery’s charge is below 50% before recharging, then charge it fully (100%). Charging can take up to approximately 3 hours. You can continue working while the battery charges. A fully charged battery can operate the computer for up to 4 hours, depending on your computer’s model, power management settings, and level of use. 54 Reference Guide, Batteries and Power Management Using Battery Power

To use additional batteries

You can install a secondary battery in your computer’s plug-in module bay. See “Using Plug-In Modules” on page 72 for information about installing plug-in modules. For instructions on replacing the main battery, see “Step 1: Install the battery” on page 20.

To get the most from your batteries

Follow these suggestions to make your battery’s power last as long as possible. • Plug in the AC adapter, especially when using a drive in the module bay, or any external connections such as a PC Card or a modem. • Set the display brightness to the lowest comfortable level (Fn+F1). • Put the computer in Standby mode whenever you are not using it for a short while: press the blue sleep button for approximately one second, or click Start, Shut Down (or Turn Off Computer), Standby. • Put the computer in Hibernate mode whenever you want to save your current session, but will not be using the computer for a day or more: press Fn+F12. • Set the automatic timeout settings to emphasize saving power. If your computer has a multispeed processor and uses Windows 2000, use the lower speed on battery power (the default settings conserve battery power)—see “How the computer manages power automatically” on page 50. • If your computer has a wireless on-off button, turn off the wireless function when you’re not using it. Press the wireless on-off button so the light turns off. • Check that the display is using the Powerplay option. In Control Panel Display, on the Settings tab click Advanced, then on the Powerplay tab check whether Powerplay is enabled. This allows the computer to save power when it’s not needed by the display. • If you have an I/O PC Card—that is, a PC Card having an external connection, such as a network card—remove it when you’re not using it. Some I/O cards use significant power even while they’re inactive. • If you work with an application that uses the serial port or an I/O PC Card, exit the application when you finish using it. Reference Guide 55, Batteries and Power Management Using Battery Power • Install another battery—see “To use additional batteries” on page 55. • If your main battery is rated at 11.1 volts (check its label), purchase a replacement main battery, which is rated at 14.8 volts. In addition, follow these suggestions to extend the life of your batteries. • Do not leave batteries unused for long periods. If you have more than one, rotate them. • If you normally use AC power, make a practice of using the battery as your power source at least once a week. • Unplug the AC adapter when the computer is not in use. • To preserve the life of a battery, be sure to charge it regularly. • For long-term storage, the battery must be charged 20–50% to minimize capacity loss by self-discharge and to avoid deterioration of battery performance. • To maintain maximum battery capacity and accuracy of the battery gauge, perform this calibration procedure every few months: 1. Click Start, Programs (or All Programs), Hewlett-Packard, Notebook, HP Battery Optimizer. 2. Follow the displayed instructions to test and condition your battery. The process could take 4–6 hours or more per battery. You can use the computer during the process. If you interrupt the process, the battery might be left with a low charge.

To maximize processor speed

If your computer contains a multispeed processor with Intel SpeedStep Technology, the processor can automatically switch to lower, power-saving speeds or to higher- performance speeds according to the workload. See “How the computer manages power automatically” on page 50. 56 Reference Guide,

Reference Guide 57, Modem and Network Connections Using the Modem

Using the Modem

If your computer has a modem port, you can connect your modem to a telephone line and communicate with other computers throughout the world. You can explore the Internet, send and receive e-mail messages, and use your PC to send and receive faxes. Your computer contains several software programs that work with your modem: • Internet Explorer, for browsing the World Wide Web • Outlook Express, for sending and receiving e-mail messages • Windows XP Fax Console or Windows 2000 fax software for sending and receiving faxes The modem is a high-speed 56-Kbps modem. For best performance, you can connect to any Internet Service Provider (ISP) or modem network that has V.90 or V.92 interoperable modems. Check with your ISP for a list of telephone numbers that support V.90 or V.92. Note that the maximum speed for faxing is 14.4 Kbps. Even though the modem is capable of downloading at 56 Kbps, your ISP or modem network may not operate at this speed or support this technology. Please check with your service provider for information on its capabilities. Furthermore, download transmission rates depend on the condition of the telephone line. 58 Reference Guide, Modem and Network Connections Using the Modem

To connect the modem

CAUTION To reduce the risk of fire, use only No. 26 AWG or larger telecommunications line cord to connect the modem to the telephone wall jack. 1. Check that the telephone line is an analog line, sometimes called a data line. (You must not use a digital line.) 2. Connect a telephone cord with an RJ-11 plug into a telephone jack. If the plug on the phone cord doesn’t fit the jack, you may need to use an adapter. 3. Plug the other end of the phone cord the built-in modem. 4.

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. Special restrictions in certain countries • Many countries impose a blackout period after a modem repeatedly fails to connect to a service provider. The number of failed attempts and the period you must wait before trying again differ from country to country: check with your telephone company. Reference Guide 59, Modem and Network Connections Using the Modem For example, if you are dialing from Italy and fail to connect to your server or cancel the connection, you must wait one minute before dialing that number again. If you dial before then, you will get an error message that says “delay.” After the fourth failed connection, you must wait one hour before trying the number again. If you dial before the hour is up, you will get a message that says “black list.” • When using a modem in the Republic of South Africa, an external surge protector may be necessary in order to prevent computer damage by lightning or other electrical surges. Connect any approved surge protector to the modem cable whenever you are using the modem.

Reference Guide 65, Modem and Network Connections Making Wireless Connections

Making Wireless Connections

If your computer includes a wireless on-off button—located on the left side of the computer near the front—you can connect by radio to a wireless local area network (LAN) and access computers and other resources on the network. A wireless network provides all the functions of a typical “wired” network, but also provides for “roaming.” Since your computer connects to the network by radio rather than through cables, you can move from place to place within the network—from your office to a conference room, for example—and remain on the network the entire time.

To prepare for connections (Windows 2000)

Before you can connect your computer to a particular 802.11 wireless network, you have to configure the computer for the specific type of connection: “AdHoc” or “Infrastructure.” Computer-to-Computer Connection (AdHoc) An AdHoc network provides a wireless connection from your computer directly to one or more computers with wireless capabilities, even if they aren’t connected to a LAN. You can then share resources such as shared files, printers, and Internet connections with the other computers. 1. Click the wireless link icon in the taskbar and select Advanced Configuration. –or– Click Start, Programs, HP Wireless LAN, Configuration Utility. 2. On the Configuration tab, set these parameters: Mode: AdHoc. SSID: any name; must be identical for all computers connecting to each other. Do not use a name that is used by a nearby access point. AdHoc Channel: must be identical for all computers connecting to each other. For best performance, do not use a channel that is the same as or adjacent to a channel already being used by a nearby access point. 66 Reference Guide, Modem and Network Connections Making Wireless Connections 3. If the computers use encrypted communication, use the Encryption tab to set the following parameters, which must be identical for all computers that will connect to each other: • Encryption: 64-bit or 128-bit. • Key: see the hint below. The computers automatically connect whenever they’re within range of each other and wireless communication is turned on—see “To turn wireless communication on and off” on page 69. LAN Connection (Infrastructure) In an infrastructure network, your computer connects to a LAN (local area network) through a wireless access point. This gives you access to the resources on the network, such as printers, file servers, and possibly the Internet. Your network administrator can provide the settings you’ll need to connect to the wireless access point, as well as the additional settings you’ll need for the network itself. 1. Set up your computer for your local network: Windows automatically detects and sets up a LAN connection. To edit settings, open Network and Dial-up Connections in Control Panel. 2. Click the wireless link icon in the taskbar and select Advanced Configuration. –or– Click Start, Programs, HP Wireless LAN, Configuration Utility. 3. On the Configuration tab, set these parameters: Mode: Infrastructure. SSID: the ID used by the access point. “ANY” connects to the access point with the strongest signal, regardless of its SSID. 4. If your wireless network uses encrypted communication, use the Encryption tab to set these parameters—see the network administrator for the required settings: • Encryption: 64-bit or 128-bit. • Key: see the hint below. The computer automatically connects to the infrastructure network whenever it’s within range of an access point and wireless communication is turned on—see “To turn wireless communication on and off” on page 69. Reference Guide 67, Modem and Network Connections Making Wireless Connections Hint If you are connecting to an access point or computer that is using Lucent/Agere-based software, you must set up compatible encryption on your computer. You can enter the encryption key manually. If you know only the Lucent/Agere passphrase, you must convert it to the corresponding key.

If one or more display pixels look bad TFT display manufacturing is a highly precise but imperfect technology, and manufacturers cannot produce displays that are cosmetically perfect. Most, if not all, TFT displays exhibit some level of cosmetic imperfection. These cosmetic imperfections may be visible under varying display conditions, and can appear as bright, dim, or dark spots. This issue is common across all vendors supplying TFT displays in their products and is not specific to the HP notebook display. HP notebook TFT displays meet or exceed all HP standards for cosmetic quality of TFT displays. HP does not warrant that the displays will be free of cosmetic imperfections. TFT displays can have a small number of cosmetic imperfections and still conform to HP’s cosmetic quality specifications, including the following: • No more than 6 pixels remain on (always one color, such as white, red, green, or blue dots). • No more than 6 pixels remain off (always dark). • No more than a total of 8 pixels stuck on or off. • No other stuck pixel within 15 mm of a stuck pixel. Contact HP Customer Care if you have a display quality problem and require a more comprehensive explanation of HP display quality—see “To contact HP for support or service” on page 130. We expect that over time the industry will continue to produce displays with fewer inherent cosmetic imperfections, and we will adjust our HP guidelines as these improvements are implemented. 100 Reference Guide, Troubleshooting and Maintenance Troubleshooting Your Computer

Power and Battery Problems

If the computer turns off immediately after it turns on • Battery power is probably extremely low. Plug in the AC adapter or insert a charged battery. If the computer keeps beeping • The computer beeps repeatedly or displays a warning when battery power is low. Save your work, shut down Windows immediately, and insert a charged battery or plug in the AC adapter. If the battery doesn’t charge • Make sure the AC adapter is fully plugged into the power source and the computer, and that the light on the adapter is on. • If you’re using a power strip, remove the AC adapter from the power strip and plug it directly into a wall outlet. • Make sure the battery is fully installed and locked in place. • Make sure you’re using an adapter with 75-watt (3.95-amp) capacity—check the adapter label. Do not use a 60-watt (3.16-amp) adapter. • Move the computer away from any nearby heat source. Unplug the AC adapter and allow the battery to cool down. If the battery gets too hot, it will not charge properly. • If available, try another battery and AC adapter. If a secondary battery doesn’t charge • The computer’s secondary battery won’t charge until the main battery is fully charged. • Make sure the AC adapter is fully plugged into the power source and the computer, and that the light on the adapter is on. • Make sure the secondary battery is correctly installed and locked in place. If the computer has a short operating time • Try conserving power using any of the suggestions listed in “To get the most from your batteries” on page 55. Reference Guide 111, Troubleshooting and Maintenance Troubleshooting Your Computer • If you are running an application that has an automatic save feature (such as MS Word), disable this feature or increase the specified save time to reduce hard disk access. • If the operating time has gradually become shorter and the battery is more than a year or two old, you may need to replace the battery. • Heavy modem use can affect battery operating time. • PC card use can affect battery operating time. • Test and recondition the battery every 3 months or so using HP Battery Optimizer— see “To get the most from your batteries” on page 55. If the Time Remaining for the battery is not correct • The Time Remaining is an estimate, not a precise value, and is based on the rate at which the computer is using power at the moment. This value therefore depends on your current task, and assumes that you will continue using power at the same rate until the battery runs out. So, if you check the Time Remaining while the computer is performing a task requiring a good deal of power (such as reading from a CD or DVD), the value will probably show less time remaining than you really have, since you will probably later switch to tasks that require less power. If the computer doesn’t suspend to Standby mode as expected • If you have a connection to another computer, the computer won’t suspend if the connection is active. • If the computer is performing an operation, it normally waits for the operation to finish before suspending. If the computer doesn’t automatically hibernate as expected • Make sure hibernate support is enabled. From Control Panel, open Power Options, then click the Hibernate tab. Also, check the Power Schemes tab. Make sure the Hibernate timeouts for both AC power and battery power are not set to Never. 112 Reference Guide, Troubleshooting and Maintenance Troubleshooting Your Computer

Printing Problems

Hint You will usually be able to solve most printing problems by using the Print troubleshooter in Windows Help: click Start, Help (or Help and Support). If a serial or parallel printer doesn’t print • Make sure the printer is on and has paper in it. • Make sure you are using the correct printer cable or cable adapter, and that the cable is secure at both ends. • Check for printer errors. If the left edge of printed output is missing • Certain applications may not work properly with 600-dpi printers. If you’re using such a printer, try selecting a compatible printer driver for a 300-dpi printer. For example, if you were using a 600-dpi HP LaserJet printer, you might try using the HP LaserJet IIIsi driver (300-dpi). If an infrared printer doesn’t print • Make sure the line between the two infrared ports is not blocked, and that the ports face each other as squarely as possible. (The computer’s infrared port is on its right side, beneath the volume control.) The ports should be no more than 1 meter apart. • Make sure the printer is on and has paper in it. • Check for printer errors. • Make sure Windows is running; otherwise infrared printing is not available. • See “Infrared Problems” on page 102.

Modem Reference Information

If your computer has a modem port, you can customize the operation of the modem using AT commands and S-registers. You can do this from Phone and Modem Options in Control Panel, from most communications software, or by using terminal mode in your software. See “To change your modem settings” on page 61. Note You should have a good understanding of modems and how they operate before you change default settings. This section contains summary information about AT commands, S-registers, and selected result codes for the built-in modem. Your computer has an Ambit (Ambit/ESS or Ambit/Lucent) modem.

Exposure to Radio Frequency Radiation

The radiated output power of the IEEE 802.11 internal wireless radio is far below the FCC radio frequency exposure limits. Nevertheless, the wireless radio shall be used in such a manner that the potential for human contact during normal operation is minimized. The internal wireless radio operates within guidelines found in radio frequency safety standards and recommendations, which reflect the consensus of the scientific community. HP therefore believes the internal wireless radio is safe for use by consumers. The level of energy emitted is far less than the electromagnetic energy emitted by wireless devices such as mobile phones. However, the use of wireless radios may be restricted in some situations or environments, such as aboard airplanes. If you are unsure of restrictions, you are encouraged to ask for authorization before turning on the wireless radio. Reference Guide 149, Reference Information Regulatory Information

In Anbetracht der Unterschiede zwischen den einzelnen Telefonnetzen bietet die Zertifizierung für sich genommen keine absolute Sicherheit, dass die Geräte bei Anschluss an jeder beliebigen Telefonbuchse funktionieren. Sollten Probleme auftreten, wenden Sie sich zunächst an den Gerätehersteller. Diese Geräte wurden zum Betrieb in allen Ländern der europäischen Wirtschaftsgemein- schaft entwickelt (Public Switched Telephone Networks). Die Kompatibilität zum Netz ist von internen Software-Einstellungen abhängig. Wenden Sie sich an den Geräteher- steller, wenn Sie die Geräte in einem anderen Telefonnetz einsetzen müssen. Weitere Informationen zur Unterstützung für das Produkt erhalten Sie bei Hewlett-Packard. Cet équipement a été reconnu conforme aux décisions du Conseil 98/482/EC relatives à la connexion pan-européenne de terminal simple au réseau téléphonique public commuté (RTPC) et à un réseau sans fil RF. Cependant, des différences existant entre les RTPC nationaux présents dans les différents pays, cette homologation en elle-même ne garantit pas la réussite de toutes les opérations sur tous les points de terminaison du réseau téléphonique public commuté. En cas de problème, prenez contact avec le fournisseur auprès duquel vous vous êtes procuré votre équipement. Cet équipement a été conçu pour fonctionner dans tous les pays membres de la zone d'échange européenne (Réseaux Téléphoniques Public Commutés).
