    ... and ergonomic design make your AMILO Mini a convenient and reliable companion.
    The Microsoft Windows XP operating system is already installed and optimally configured on the
    AMILO Mini. The device is ready for immediate use when you first switch it on, it boots up very
    quickly and offers a particularly long operating time because of its high capacity battery.
    With the user-friendly "BIOS Setup Utility" you can control your notebook’s hardware and better
    protect your system against unauthorised access by using the powerful password properties.
    For information on the connections and controls of your notebook, please
    refer to the enclosed manual "First-time setup".

    Further information
    You will find the Windows XP drivers for your device on our Internet website. The factory
    installation of your device does not support any other operating system. Fujitsu Siemens

    Notes

    Please observe the points listed below when travelling with your notebook.

    Before you travel
    ► Back up important data stored on your hard disk.
    ► Switch off the radio component for data security reasons. With data traffic via a wireless
    connection, it is also possible for unauthorised third parties to receive data.
    Travel,notebook
    Notebook

    Information on activating data encryption is provided in the documentation
    for your radio component.

    ► If you wish to use your notebook during a flight, first check with the flight
    attendants if it is OK to do so.

    When travelling in other countries
    ► If you are travelling abroad, check that the mains adapter can be operated with the
    local mains voltage. If this is not the case, obtain the appropriate mains adapter for
    your notebook. Do not use any other voltage converter!
    ► Check whether the local power supply and the specifications of the power cable are
    compatible. If this is not the case, buy a power cable that matches the local conditions. Do
    not use a connection adapter for electrical devices to connect the notebook.
    ► Enquire with the corresponding government office of the country you will be
    travelling in as to whether you may operate the radio component integrated in
    your notebook there (see also "CE marking", Page 50).
    ► If you are planning to use a modem, please be aware that it may not necessarily be compatible
    with the local telephone system. This may result in poor performance, or the modem may not work
    at all. You may require a country-specific telephone adapter (available as an optional accessory).

    Notebook: transporting
    A placeholder must occupy the ExpressCard slot. This will prevent any
    foreign bodies from entering the notebook via the slot.
    Protect the notebook from severe shocks and extreme temperatures
    (e.g. direct sunlight in a car).






    Switch the notebook off.
    Unplug the mains adapter and all external devices from the power socket.
    Disconnect the mains adapter cable and the data cables for all external devices.
    Close the LCD screen.
    To protect against damaging jolts and bumps, use a notebook carrying
    case to transport your notebook.

    Important notes

    Cleaning the notebook
    Do not clean any interior parts yourself; leave this job to a service technician.
    Only use cleaning products designed for computers. Normal household
    cleaners and polishes can damage the markings on the keyboard and the
    device, the paintwork or the notebook itself.
    Ensure that no liquid enters the notebook.
    The LCD screen very sensitive to scratches. Only clean the display
    surface with a very soft, slightly damp cloth.
    ► Switch the notebook off.
    ► Remove the mains plug for the mains adapter from the mains socket.
    ► Remove the battery (see Chapter "Removing and installing the battery", Page 23).
     The surface can be cleaned with a dry cloth. If particularly dirty, use a cloth which has
    been moistened in mild domestic detergent and then carefully wrung out.
    To clean the keyboard and the touchpad, you can use disinfectant wipes.

    Gettingstarted
    Notebook
    First-timesetup

    If your notebook comes with a Windows operating system then all of the necessary
    hardware drivers and the supplied software will already be pre-installed.
    When you switch on the notebook for the first time it will perform a system
    check. A number of different messages may be displayed. In the process,
    the display may flicker or darken temporarily.
    Please follow the instructions on the screen.
    It is very important that you do not switch the notebook off during this initial set-up process.
    Before you can use your notebook for the first time you will need to charge the battery.
    On delivery, the battery can be found in the battery compartment or in the accessories kit. The
    battery must be charged if you want to operate your notebook with the battery.
    When not plugged into a mains socket, the notebook runs on its built-in battery. You can
    increase the battery’s life by enabling the system’s energy saving functions.
    If you use the notebook in at home or in an office, we recommend you use
    the mains adapter instead of the battery.

    Unpacking and checking your notebook
    Should you discover any damage incurred during transportation, notify
    your local sales outlet immediately!

    ► Unpack all the individual parts.
    ► Check your notebook for damage incurred during transportation.

    Packaging

    We recommend that you keep the original packaging material.
    You may need the packaging in the future if you need to transport your device.

    Never place the notebook and the mains adapter on a heat-sensitive
    surface. This could damage the surface.
    Never place the notebook on a soft surface (e.g. carpeting, upholstered furniture,
    bed). This can block the air vents and cause damage due to overheating.
    Do not place the notebook directly on your legs for extended periods. The
    underside of the notebook heats up during normal operation. Extended contact
    with the skin can become unpleasant or even result in burns.
    Place the notebook on a stable, flat, non-slip surface. Please note that
    the rubber feet may mark certain types of surfaces.
    Keep other objects 100 mm away from the notebook and its mains
    adapter to ensure adequate ventilation.
    Never cover the ventilation slots on the notebook.
    Do not expose the notebook to extreme environmental conditions. Protect
    the notebook against dust, humidity and heat.

    High-quality TFT displays are installed in notebooks from Fujitsu Siemens Computers GmbH.
    For technical reasons, TFT monitors are manufactured for a specific resolution. An optimal,
    clear picture can only be ensured in the resolution intended for the particular TFT monitor. A
    monitor resolution which differs from the specification can result in an unclear picture.
    The expression "monitor resolution" is used to describe the number of horizontal and vertical
    pixels ("picture elements") which make up the monitor display. For example, "WUXGA" stands for
    1920 x 1200 pixels. Each pixel consists of three so-called subpixels of the colours red, green and
    blue. As a result, a WUXGA monitor consists of 1920 x 1200 x 3 = 6,912,000 subpixels.

    The screen resolution of the LCD monitor of your notebook is optimally set at the factory.
    Permanently unlit or lit pixels
    The standard of production techniques today cannot guarantee an absolutely fault-free screen
    display. A few isolated constant lit or unlit pixels may be present. The maximum permitted number
    of pixels faults is stipulated in the strict international standard ISO 13406-2 (Class II).
    Example:
    A 15" LCD screen monitor with a resolution of 1280 x 800 has 1280 x 800 = 1,024,000 pixels. Each
    pixel consists of three subpixels (red, green and blue), so there are almost 3 million subpixels in
    total. According to ISO 13406-2 (Class II), a maximum of 4 pixels and 5 subpixels may be defective,
    i.e. a total of 17 defective subpixels. That is approx. 0,0005 % of the entire subpixel!
    Background lighting
    TFT monitors are operated with background lighting. The luminosity of the background
    lighting can decrease during the period of use of the notebook. However, you can
    set the brightness of your monitor individually.

    Battery

    The battery is one of the most important components of your notebook. When not plugged into a
    mains socket, the notebook runs on its built-in battery. You can increase the life of the battery by
    caring for the battery properly. The average battery life is around 500 charge/discharge cycles.
    You can extend the battery life by taking advantage of the available energy saving functions.

    Charging, caring for and maintaining the battery
    Battery

    The notebook battery can only be charged, when the ambient temperature
    is between 5°C and max. 35°C.
    You can charge the battery by connecting the notebook to the mains adapter
    (see "Connecting the mains adapter", Page 9).
    You can increase the life of your battery by allowing it to fully discharge before recharging it again.
    To do this, leave your notebook turned on when it is operated with the battery. Once the battery
    is running low you will hear a warning alarm. If you do not connect the mains adapter within five
    minutes of the warning alarm described above, your notebook will automatically switch off.
    For information about battery charging times, please refer to the technical data
    section in the manual entitled "Preparing for use".
    monitoring the battery charging level
    Batterystatusmeter
    Battery

    Windows also has a "Battery status meter" in the taskbar for monitoring the battery capacity. When
    you place the mouse pointer on the battery symbol, the system displays the battery status.

    Self-discharge,battery
    Battery

    Keep the battery pack between 0°C and +30°C. The lower the temperature at which
    the batteries are stored, the lower the rate of self-discharge.
    If you will be storing batteries for a longer period (more than two months), the battery
    charge level should be approx. 30 %. To prevent exhaustive discharge, check the
    charging level of the battery at regular intervals.
    To be able to make use of the optimal charging capacity of the batteries, the battery
    should be completely discharged and then fully recharged.
    If you do not use the batteries for long periods, remove them from the
    notebook. Never store the batteries in the device.

    Removing and installing the battery
    Only use batteries approved by Fujitsu Siemens Computers for your notebook.
    Never use force when inserting or removing a battery.
    Make sure that no foreign bodies get into the battery connections.





    Switch off your notebook and disconnect the power plug from the mains socket.
    Close the LCD screen so that it fully locks into place.
    Disconnect all cables connected to the notebook.
    Turn your notebook over and place it on a firm, flat and clean surface. If necessary, lay
    an anti-slip cloth on this surface to prevent the notebook from being scratched.

    Fault
    Tips
    Troubleshooting

    Refer to the safety information in the "Safety" manual when
    connecting or disconnecting cables.

    If a fault occurs, try to correct it as described. If you fail to correct the problem, proceed as follows:
    ► Make a note of the steps and the circumstances that led to the fault. Also
    make a note of any error messages displayed.
    ► Switch the notebook off.
    ► Contact the Hotline/Help Desk.
    You can find the telephone numbers in the help desk list. Please have
    the following information ready when you call:
    • The model name and serial number of the notebook. The serial number is
    located on a sticker on the underside of the notebook.
    • Notes of any messages that appear on the screen and information on acoustic signals.
    • Any changes you have made to the hardware or software since
    receiving the notebook.
    • Any changes you have made to the BIOS Setup settings since receiving the notebook.
    • Your system configuration and all peripheral devices connected to your system.
    • Your sales contract.
    Our notebooks have been designed primarily with mobile applications in mind.
    This means that considerable effort has been made to optimise components and
    equipment in terms of weight, space and energy requirements. Depending on the
    particular configuration you have purchased, it is possible that functionality may be
    slightly reduced compared to a desktop PC if you are running processor-intensive
    gaming software, e.g. games with intensive 3D graphics. Updating your hardware
    with drivers which have not been approved by Fujitsu Siemens Computers may
    result in performance losses, data losses or malfunction of the equipment. A
    list of approved drivers and current BIOS versions can be downloaded from:
    "http://www.fujitsu-siemens.de/support/downloads.html"

    Help if problems occur
    Should you ever have a problem with your computer that you cannot solve yourself, in many cases
    you can solve it quickly using the SystemDiagnostics program pre-installed on your computer.
    ► To start the SystemDiagnostics program, click Start - Programs - Fujitsu
    Siemens Computers - SystemDiagnostics.
    ► If a problem is detected during the test run, the SystemDiagnostics program outputs
    a code (e.g. DIFS code YXXX123456789123).
    ► Take a note of this DIFS code and the ID number of your device. The ID number can
    be found on the type rating plate on the back of the casing.
    ► If you still need assistance resolving the problem, contact the relevant Help Desk for
    your country (see the Help Desk List or go to "http://www.fujitsu-siemens.com/support").
    Have the ID/serial No. of your system and the DIFS code ready.
