This information is in the BIOS program. Each time you power up or restart your notebook, it goes through a boot sequence which displays a Fujitsu logo until your operating system is found. During booting, your notebook is performing a standard boot sequence including a Power On Self Test (POST).
When you turn on your notebook for the first time, it will display a Fujitsu logo on the screen. If you do nothing the system will load the operating system, and then the Windows Welcome will begin.
Starting Windows XP the First Time Registering with Microsoft In order to ensure that you receive the most benefits from the Windows operating system, it should be registered the first time you use it. After you receive the Windows Welcome screen, you will be prompted to enter registration information in the following order.
Your system has a convenient tool called the Fujitsu Driver Update (FDU) utility. With FDU, you can choose to automatically or manually go to the Fujitsu site to check for new updates for your system. For more information about the FDU utility, refer to “Automatically Downloading Driver Updates” on page 78.
Power Management Your notebook has many options and features for conserving battery power. Some of these features are automatic and need no user intervention. However, others depend on the parameters you set to best suit your operating conditions, such as those for the display brightness. Internal power management for your notebook may be controlled from settings made in your operating system, pre-bundled power management application, or from settings made in BIOS setup utility.
Standby Mode Standby mode in Windows saves the contents of your system memory during periods of inactivity by maintaining power to critical parts. This mode turns off the CPU, display, hard drive, and all other internal components except those necessary to maintain system memory and for restarting. Your notebook can be put in Standby mode by: •...
Hibernation (Save-to-Disk) Feature The Hibernation feature saves the contents of your notebook’s system memory to the hard drive as a part of the Suspend/Resume mode. You can enable or disable this feature. Enable or Disable the Hibernation Feature The default settings are not enabled. To enable or disable the Hibernation feature follow these steps: From the Start menu, select Settings, and then select Control Panel.
Powering Off Before turning off the power, check that the hard drive/optical drive access indicator is off. If you turn off the power while accessing a disk there is a risk of data loss. To ensure that your notebook shuts down without error, use the Windows shut down procedure.
Sleep mode, press the Suspend/Resume Button. Energy saving benefits: Fujitsu ENERGY STAR qualified mobile PCs use about half as much electricity as standard equipment – saving half in utility costs. But more than that, ENERGY STAR also makes a difference for the environment.

Chapter 5 Care and Maintenance Caring for your M2010 Notebook If you use your Fujitsu notebook carefully, you will increase its life and reliability. This section provides some tips for looking after the notebook and its devices. • N THE EVENT YOU DROP YOUR NOTEBOOK OR DAMAGE THE HOUSING IN ANY WAY...
If your notebook will not boot after it has dried out, call your support representative. • Do not use your Fujitsu notebook in a wet environment (near a bathtub, swimming pool). • Always use the AC adapter and batteries that are approved for your notebook.
Cleaning your notebook • Always disconnect the power plug. (Pull the plug, not the cord.) • Clean your notebook with a damp, lint-free cloth. Do not use abrasives or solvents. • Use a soft cloth to remove dust from the screen. Never use glass cleaners. •...
• Store your notebook and batteries separately. If you store your notebook with a battery installed, the battery will discharge, and battery life will be reduced. In addition, a faulty battery might damage your notebook. • Store your Fujitsu notebook in a cool, dry location. Temperatures should remain between 13ºF (-25ºC) and 140ºF (60ºC). •...
Traveling with your notebook • Do not transport your notebook while it is turned on. • It is recommended that you carry your notebook with you while traveling, rather than checking it in as baggage. • Always bring your System Recovery CD that came with your notebook when you travel. If you experience system software problems while traveling, you may need it to correct any problems.
Batteries Caring for your Batteries • Always handle batteries carefully. • Do not short-circuit the battery terminals (that is, do not touch both terminals with a metal object). Do not carry lose batteries in a pocket or purse where they may mix with coins, keys, or other metal objects.
Media Care Caring for your Media (optional) Media discs (DVD/CD/CD-R) are precision devices and will function reliably if given reasonable care. • Always store your media disc in its case when it is not in use. • Always handle discs by the edges and avoid touching the surface. •...

Appendix A: WLAN User’s Guide FCC Regulatory Information Please note the following regulatory information related to the optional wireless LAN device. Regulatory Notes and Statements Wireless LAN, Health and Authorization for use Radio frequency electromagnetic energy is emitted from Wireless LAN devices. The energy levels of these emissions, however, are much less than the electromagnetic energy emissions from wireless devices such as mobile phones.
Regulatory Information/Disclaimers Installation and use of this Wireless LAN device must be in strict accordance with the instructions included in the user documentation provided with the product. Any changes or modifications made to this device that are not expressly approved by the manufacturer may void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.
003 B / NMB 003 B. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) this device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesirable operation. Modifications not expressly authorized by Fujitsu America Inc. may invalidate the user's right to operate this equipment. Canadian Notice The device for the 5150 - 5250 MHz band is only for indoor usage to reduce the potential for harmful interference to co-channel mobile satellite systems.
Before Using the Optional Wireless LAN This manual describes the procedures required to properly set up and configure the optional integrated Wireless LAN Mini-PCI device (referred to as "WLAN device" in the rest of the manual). Before using the WLAN device, read this manual carefully to ensure its correct operation. Keep this manual in a safe place for future reference.
Wireless LAN Modes Using this Device Ad Hoc Mode "Ad Hoc Mode" refers to a wireless network architecture where wireless network connectivity between multiple computers is established without a central wireless network device, typically known as Access Point(s). Connectivity is accomplished using only client devices in a peer-to-peer fashion. That is why Ad Hoc networks are also known as peer-to-peer networks.
Access Point (Infrastructure) Mode Infrastructure mode refers to a wireless network architecture in which devices communicate with wireless or wired network devices by communicating through an Access Point. In infrastructure mode, wireless devices can communicate with each other or with a wired network. Corporate wireless networks operate in infrastructure mode because they require access to the WLAN in order to access services, devices, and computers (e.g., file servers, printers, databases).
How to Handle This Device The WLAN device is an optional device that may come pre-installed in your mobile computer. Under normal circumstances, it should not be necessary for you to remove or re-install it. The operating system that your mobile computer comes with has been pre-configured to support the WLAN device. •...
