Setting Up Your ComputerWARNING 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 30. 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 batteryWARNING 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. Startup Guide 17, 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. 18 Startup Guide, Getting Started with Your HP Notebook Setting Up Your Computer
Step 2: Connect AC powerCAUTION 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 59). • 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. Startup Guide 19, Getting Started with Your HP Notebook Setting Up Your Computer
Step 3: Connect a phone lineIf 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, including AT commands, see the online Reference Guide. 20 Startup Guide, 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 WindowsYour 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. Startup Guide 21, Getting Started with Your HP Notebook Setting Up Your Computer
Step 6: Register your notebookBe 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 54 to find the phone number.
What to do nextHere 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 InternetIf 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 the online Reference Guide—click Start, Programs, Hewlett-Packard, Notebook, HP Library (Windows 2000) or Start, Help and Support, HP Library (Windows XP). 22 Startup Guide,

To work with CDs and DVDsIf you have a DVD drive module, you can play DVD movies. If you have a CD-RW drive module, you can write and copy CDs. See the online Reference Guide for more information. Important DVDs can have regional codes embedded in the disc data. These codes prevent DVD movies from being played outside the region of the world in which they are sold. If you get a region code error, you are trying to play a DVD intended for a different region. Most DVD drives let you change the region code only a limited number of times (usually no more than four). Please note that when you reach this limit, your last change to the region code will be hard-coded on the DVD drive, and will be permanent. Your HP warranty does not cover the expense of correcting this situation. Refer to the help for your DVD player software for details about setting region codes. Startup Guide 29, Basic Operation Working in Comfort with a Notebook PC
Working in Comfort with a Notebook PCWARNING 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—or see Working in Comfort in the online HP Library. You can use your HP notebook computer virtually anywhere, anytime. The following recommendations should help you work more comfortably. Note 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 Windows 2000 Recovery CD in \hp\library—as well as at www.hp.com/ergo. 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. 30 Startup Guide, Basic Operation 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. 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.

To check battery statusFrom the battery status lights You computer has two battery status lights, one for the main battery and one for a secondary battery in the module bay—see “Status Lights” on page 15. From the Windows taskbar The Windows taskbar can display a power icon that provides detailed battery status information (see Windows Help for details). The icon looks like a battery when AC is not connected. • Place the pointer over the power icon to display the remaining battery charge. This value is shown as either a percentage of charge remaining, or as time remaining. • Double-click the power icon to open the Battery Meter window. From the Windows Control Panel • Windows 2000: click Start, Settings, Control Panel, then double-click Power Options. This provides access to all of Windows’ power-information options. • Windows XP: click Start, Control Panel, Performance and Maintenance, Power Options, then click the Power Meter tab to see the battery status. The Alarms and Advanced tabs provide additional Windows’ power-information options. On the battery 1. Remove the battery from the computer—see “Step 1: Install the battery” on page 17. 2. Press the contact pad on the back of the battery. The number of lights that turn on indicates the remaining charge (each light represents 20% of a full charge). 34 Startup Guide, Batteries and Power Management Using Battery Power
To respond to a low-battery warningThe 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 17. • Plug in the AC adapter. See “Step 2: Connect AC power” on page 19. • Install a charged secondary battery in the plug-in module bay. Note If you plug in the AC adapter, you can continue to work while your battery recharges.
To recharge the batteryCAUTION 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. Startup Guide 35,

Exposure to Radio Frequency RadiationThe 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. 68 Startup Guide, Reference Information Regulatory Information
