damaged battery promptly.
(Safety Instructions, continued)
Certain Federal Aviation Administration regulations and/or airline-
specific restrictions may apply to the operation of your Dell™
computer while you are onboard an aircraft. For example, such
regulations/restrictions may prohibit the use of any personal electronic
device (PED) that has the capacity for intentional transmission of
radio frequency or other electromagnetic signals while on an aircraft.
In order to best comply with all such restrictions, if your Dell
portable computer is equipped with Dell TrueMobile™ or some
other wireless communication device, please disable this device
before you board the aircraft and follow all instructions provided
by airline personnel with regard to such device.
Additionally, the use of any PED, such as a portable computer,
may be prohibited in aircraft during certain critical phases of
flight, for example, takeoff and landing. Some airlines may further
define the critical flight phase as any time the aircraft is below
3050 m (10,000 ft). Please follow the airline's specific instructions
as to when the use of a PED is allowed.
Use shielded signal cables to ensure that you maintain the appropriate
EMC classification for the intended environment. For parallel printers,
a cable is available from Dell. If you prefer, you can order a cable from
Dell at its world-wide website at http://www.dell.com.
Static electricity can harm electronic components inside your
computer. To prevent static damage, discharge static electricity from
your body before you touch any of your computer's electronic
components, such as a memory module. You can do so by touching an
unpainted metal surface on the computer's input/output panel.
