LCD screen Information on LCD screen Notes LCDscreen
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. Screen resolutions CGA QVGA VGA NTSC PAL SVGA

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.
The screen resolution of the LCD monitor of your notebook is optimally set at the factory.

Battery Rechargeablebattery Life,battery 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. Battery storage Chargingcapacity,battery 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. ► ► ► ►
