Connecting the components
See Chapter 1, "Introducing your computer", if you need
help identifying the various ports on the system unit.
Checking the AC power supply
When your computer is delivered, it is ready for the
commercial AC power supply generally available in the
country in which it is sold. It has been set for the correct
voltage range, and is supplied with an AC power cord and
plug which comply with the relevant safety standards.
Before using your computer in a country other than the one
in which it was originally sold, you must check the voltage
and frequency of that country's AC power supply, and the
type of power cord required there.
If necessary, the AC voltage setting of the system can be
adjusted by the voltage selection switch on the rear of the
system unit (see the section on "Using the computer abroad"
in Chapter 3, "Operating your computer"). Note that the
monitor's voltage setting will probably also need adjusting;
consult the User's Guide that accompanies the monitor, or
ask your supplier for help.
The "Safety and Regulatory Notices" section at the start of
this manual includes advice about suitable power cords.
Installing add-on options
If your computer arrived with uninstalled add-on options,
(such as expansion cards or memory modules) consult
Chapter 5 "Expanding the system" for step-by-step
instructions for installing them. Expansion cards may also
have their own documentation.
Note that some options for which you have installation
guides may have already been installed for you at the factory
or by your supplier.
