About This User’s Manual You are reading the UltraMobilePC User’s Manual. This User’s Manual pro- vides information on the various components in the UltraMobilePC and how to use them. The following are major sections of this User’s Manuals: 1. Introducing the UltraMobilePC Introduces you to the UltraMobilePC and this User’s Manual.
Safety Precautions The following safety precautions will increase the life of the UltraMobilePC. Follow all pre- cautions and instructions. Except as described in this manual, refer all servicing to qualified personnel. Do not use damaged power cords, accessories, or other peripherals. Do not use strong solvents such as thinners, benzene, or other chemicals on or near the surface.
UltraMobilePC Transportation Precautions To prepare the UltraMobilePC for transport, you should turn it OFF and disconnect all exter- nal peripherals to prevent damage to the connectors. The hard disk drive’s head retracts when the power is turned OFF to prevent scratching of the hard disk surface during transport. Therefore, you should not transport the UltraMobilePC while the power is still ON. Cover Your UltraMobilePC You can purchase an optional carrying case to protect it from dirt, water, shock, and scratches.
Preparing your UltraMobilePC These are only quick instructions for using your UltraMobilePC. Read the later pages for detailed information on using your UltraMobilePC. 1. Install the battery pack 3. Remove the Tablet Pen Extend the Tablet Pen as shown� Then Tablet Pen can be inserted in the extended form and then contracted while pressing the Tablet Pen flush with the UltraMobilePC.
2. Knowing the Parts Basic sides of the UltraMobilePC NOTE: Photos and icons in this manual are used for artistic purposes only and do not show what is actually used in the product itself.
Front Side Refer to the diagram below to identify the components on this side of the UltraMobilePC. Display Panel The display panel functions the same as a desktop monitor. The UltraMo- bilePC uses an active matrix TFT LCD, which provides excellent viewing like that of desktop monitors.
Page Up & Page Down The Page Up and Page Down buttons act the same way as those on a key- board. UltraMobilePC Settings Button The UltraMobilePC settings button bring up an easy menu to customize the UltraMobilePC to your desire. Status Indicators Status indicators represent various conditions.
Right Side Refer to the diagram below to identify the components on this side of the UltraMobilePC. LAN Port (disabled when using PortBar) The RJ-45 LAN port with eight pins is larger than the RJ-11 modem port and supports a standard Ethernet cable for connection to a local network.
USB Port (2.0/1.1) The USB (Universal Serial Bus) port is compatible with USB 2.0 or USB 1.1 devices such as keyboards, pointing devices, cameras, hard disk drives, printers, and scanners connected in a series up to 12Mbits/sec (USB 1.1) and 480Mbits/sec (USB 2.0). USB allows many devices to run simultaneously on a single computer, with some peripherals acting as additional plug-in sites or hubs.
Top Side Refer to the diagram below to identify the components on this side of the UltraMobilePC. AV-OUT AV-OUT HOLD Audio/Video output port for connection to analog audio/video WIRELESS LOGIN devices such as televisions or video recorders. POWER USB Port (2.0/1.1) The USB (Universal Serial Bus) port is compatible with USB 2.0 or USB 1.1 devices such as keyboards, pointing devices, cameras, hard disk drives, printers, and scanners connected in a series up to 12Mbits/sec (USB 1.1)
AV-OUT HOLD Wireless Switch WIRELESS LOGIN POWER Enables or disables the built-in wireless LAN and Bluetooth (selected models). When enabled, the wireless status indicator will light. Windows software settings are necessary before use. AV-OUT HOLD WIRELESS LOGIN Button LOGIN POWER The LOGIN button sends a [Ctrl][Alt][Del] keyboard combination to the operating system to show Windows Security for logging in/off, locking, shutting down, showing task manager, or changing passwords.
Left Side Refer to the diagram below to identify the components on this side of the UltraMobilePC. Mini-USB Port (Type A) The mini-USB (Universal Serial Bus) port is for connection to the optional external USB keyboard. Wrist strap hook The wrist strap hook is for use with the wrist strap to prevent accidentally dropping the UltraMobilePC when holding it in your hands.
Bottom Side Refer to the diagram below to identify the components on this side of the UltraMobilePC. Battery Lock - Spring The spring battery lock is used to keep the battery pack secured. When the battery pack is inserted, it will automatically lock. To remove the battery pack, this spring lock must be held in the unlocked position.
Back Side Refer to the diagram below to identify the components on this side of the UltraMobilePC. Battery Pack The battery pack is automatically charged when the UltraMobilePC is con- nected to an AC power source and maintains power to the UltraMobilePC when AC power is not connected.
3. Getting Started Using AC Power Using Battery Power Powering ON the UltraMobilePC Checking Battery Power Restarting or Rebooting Powering OFF the UltraMobilePC Status Indicators NOTE: Photos and icons in this manual are used for artistic purposes only and do not show what is actually used in the product itself.
Power System Using AC Power The UltraMobilePC power is comprised of two parts, the power adapter and the battery power system. The power adapter converts AC power from a wall outlet to the DC power required by the UltraMobilePC. Your Ultra- MobilePC comes with a universal AC-DC adapter.
Using Battery Power The UltraMobilePC is designed to work with a removable battery pack. The battery pack consists of a set of battery cells housed together. A fully charged pack will provide several hours of battery life, which can be further extended by using power management features through the BIOS setup. Additional battery packs are optional and can be purchased separately through a retailer.
Powering ON the UltraMobilePC The UltraMobilePC’s power-ON message appears on the screen when you turn it ON. If necessary, you may adjust the brightness by using the hotkey. If you need to run the BIOS Setup to set or modify the system configuration, press [F2] upon bootup to enter the BIOS Setup.
Checking Battery Power The battery system implements the Smart Battery standard under the Windows environ- ment, which allows the battery to accurately report the amount of charge left in the battery. A fully-charged battery pack provides the Notebook PC a few hours of working power. But the actual figure varies depending on how you use the power saving features, your general work habits, the CPU, system memory size, and the size of the display panel.
UltraMobilePC Charging the Battery Pack Before you use your UltraMobilePC on the road, you will have to charge the battery pack. The battery pack begins to charge as soon as the UltraMobilePC is connected to external power using the power adapter. Fully charge the battery pack before using it for the first time. A new battery pack must completely charge before the UltraMobilePC is disconnected from external power.
Power Management Modes The Notebook PC has a number of automatic or adjustable power saving features that you can use to maximize battery life and lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). You can control some of these features through the Power menu in the BIOS Setup. ACPI power management settings are made through the operating system.
UltraMobilePC Status Indicators Power Indicator The power indicator lights when the UltraMobilePC is turned ON and blinks slowly when the UltraMobilePC is in the Suspend-to-RAM (Standby) mode. This indicator is OFF when the UltraMobilePC is turned OFF or in the Suspend-to-Disk (Hibernation) mode.

Connections Network Connection Connect a network cable, with RJ-45 connectors on each end, to the modem/network port on the Notebook PC and the other end to a hub or switch. For 100 BASE-TX / 1000 BASE-T speeds, your network cable must be category 5 or better (not category 3) with twisted-pair wiring. If you plan on running the interface at 100/1000Mbps, it must be connected to a 100 BASE-TX / 1000 BASE-T hub (not a BASE-T4 hub).
Wireless LAN Connection (on selected models) The optional built-in wireless LAN is a compact easy-to-use wireless Ethernet adapter. Implement- ing the IEEE 802.11 standard for wireless LAN (WLAN), the optional built-in wireless LAN is capable of fast data transmission rates using Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum (DSSS) and Or- thogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) technologies on 2.4GHz/5GHz frequencies.
