Safety Precautions


Follow all cautions and instructions, which may be marked, on the computer.

Except as described elsewhere in this manual, refer all servicing to qualified
personnel. Immediately shut off the computer and seek servicing under the
following conditions:

when the power cord or plug is damaged or frayed

when liquid has been spilled on the computer

when the computer has been dropped or the cabinet has been damaged


Do not expose the computer to direct sunlight.

Try to avoid dusty environments.

Keep the computer away from any magnetic devices and TVs.

Keep the computer away from excessive humidity or fluids such as rain, snow,
water spray, juice, coffee, steam, etc.

Do not move the computer from an extremely cold place to an extremely warm
place. A temperature difference of more than 10

°C (18°F) will cause condensation

inside the unit, which may cause damage.

Do not block or cover slots or openings on the cabinet. These protect the computer
from overheating.

Do not place the computer on unstable or uneven work surfaces.

Do not use the computer on your lap or any part of your body for an extended
period during operation or charging to avoid injury from heat exposure.


Never push any objects of any kind into cabinet openings. They may touch
dangerous voltage points or short parts that could result in fire or electrical shock.

Turn off the computer before installing or removing peripheral devices (except
when connecting USB devices and PC cards, etc.).

Check the AC power cord and power connectors periodically for damage. Replace
the power cord immediately if damage is found.

Never subject your computer to sudden shocks or extreme vibration.
