Use common sense when handling the computer. Hard disks in
particular can be damaged if the computer is dropped or handled
roughly. As a precaution, back up your data from the hard disks to
tape or floppy disks before moving the computer. (See the Hard disk
section of the chapter 'System drives').
Do not try to move the computer while it is plugged into the AC
power supply or with any other cables, network, printer etc., still
When lifting and carrying the computer, grip the metal underside of
the system unit. Do not lift the unit by the front bezel. Never
attempt to use a drive door as a carrying handle. Never attempt to
lift the system with a monitor on top.
Do not leave floppy disks or CDs in the drives while moving the
system as irreparable damage could occur to either drives or disks.
If you need to transport the computer any great distance, use the
original packing materials.
If you intend to use the computer in another country, read the information in
the Power Connection Guide before connecting the computer to a different
power supply or electrical system.
