Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) is any signal or emission, radiated in free space or conducted
along power or signal leads, that endangers the functioning of a radio navigation or other safety
service or seriously degrades, obstructs, or repeatedly interrupts a licensed radio communications
service. Radio communications services include but are not limited to AM/FM commercial
broadcast, television, cellular services, radar, air-traffic control, pager, and Personal Communication
Services (PCS). These licensed services, along with unintentional radiators such as digital devices,
including computers, contribute to the electromagnetic environment.
Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) is the ability of items of electronic equipment to function
properly together in the electronic environment. While this computer has been designed and
determined to be compliant with regulatory agency limits for EMI, there is no guarantee that
interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause interference
with radio communications services, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and
on, you are encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:
Reorient the receiving antenna.
Relocate the computer with respect to the receiver.
Move the computer away from the receiver.
Plug the computer into a different outlet so that the computer and the receiver are on
different branch circuits.
If necessary, consult a Dell Technical Support representative or an experienced radio/television
technician for additional suggestions.
For additional regulatory information, see the Dell Inspiron Help file that accompanied your
computer. To access the help file, see page 16.
