UltraMobilePC 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.
UltraMobilePC 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.

UltraMobilePC 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.
UltraMobilePC 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.
UltraMobilePC 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.
UltraMobilePC 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.
UltraMobilePC 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.
UltraMobilePC Checking Battery Power The battery system implements the Smart Battery standard under the Windows environment, which allows the battery to accurately report the amount of charge left in the battery. A fully- charged battery pack provides the UltraMobilePC 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 Restarting or Rebooting After making changes to your operating system, you may be prompted to restart the system. Some installation processes will pro- vide a dialog box to allow restart. To restart (Screens are different depending on security settings�) the system manually, click Windows Start button and select Shut Down and then choose Restart.
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.

UltraMobilePC Operating System This UltraMobilePC may offer (depending on territory) its customers the choice of a pre- installed operating system such as Microsoft Windows XP. The choices and languages will depend on the territory. The levels of hardware and software support may vary depending on the installed operating system.
UltraMobilePC Fast-Ethernet Connection Connect a network cable, with RJ-45 connectors on each end, to the modem/network port on the UltraMobilePC and the other end to a hub or switch. For 100 BASE-TX 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 100Mbps, it must be connected to a 100 BASE-TX hub (not a BASE-T4 hub).
UltraMobilePC Wireless LAN Connection (on selected models) The optional built-in wireless LAN is a compact easy-to-use wireless Ethernet adapter. Implementing 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 Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) technologies.
UltraMobilePC Bluetooth Wireless Connection UltraMobilePCs with Bluetooth technology eliminates the need for cables for con- necting Bluetooth-enabled devices. Examples of Bluetooth-enabled devices may be mouse, keyboard, UltraMobilePCs, Desktop PCs, mobile phones, and PDAs. Note: If your UltraMobilePC did not come with built-in Bluetooth, you need to connect a USB Bluetooth module in order to use Bluetooth.
UltraMobilePC Power Management Modes The UltraMobilePC 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 Bluetooth (on selected models) Bluetooth is a short-range wireless technology that lets you connect computers, mobile phones, and handheld devices to each other and to the Internet. Bluetooth technology eliminates the ned for the cables that connect devices together. Bluetooth-enabled devices connect wire- lessly within a 10 m range.
UltraMobilePC IDE (Integrated Drive Electronics) IDE devices integrate the drive control circuitry directly on the drive itself, eliminating the need for a separate adapter card (in the case for SCSI devices). UltraDMA/66 or 100 IDE devices can achieve up to 33MB/Sec transfer. POST (Power On Self Test) When you turn on the computer, it will first run through the POST, a series of software-con- trolled diagnostic tests.
UltraMobilePC USB (Universal Serial Bus) A new 4-pin serial peripheral bus that allows plug and play computer peripherals such as keyboard, mouse, joystick, scanner, printer and modem/ISDN to be automatically configured when they are attached physically without having to install drivers or reboot. With USB, the traditional complex cables from back panel of your computer can be eliminated.
