25. Useful tips on saving energy ■■ ■■
Deactivate the WiFi function when it is not in use. Only leave the Notebook connected to the socket until the battery is fully charged. Always unplug the power adapter from the Notebook if you do not load the Notebook. Reduce the display brightness in the settings under "System" → "Display". Switch to standby mode when the Notebook is not in use or switch it off completely.
26. Troubleshooting/FAQ In the following, you will find a list of frequently asked questions along with the appropriate answers and proposed solutions. Why is my Notebook slow to charge? If you charge the Notebook while it is under a very high load (for example, video playback at 100 % display brightness and simultaneous surfing, chatting or games), the battery will charge very slowly due to the high load. We therefore recommend charging the Notebook while it is switched off. This allows you to get the maximum charging speed. When I attempt to start a video recording, I get an error message and recording does not start. What can I do? Please first install all available updates on your Notebook (see the question FAQ "How can I install Windows Updates on my Notebook?"). If you continue to receive an error message despite installing the updates, please contact customer service. Why does my Notebook show less storage space than indicated on the packaging? The storage capacity indicated on the packaging and in the technical specifications refers to the total storage capacity of your Notebook. However, a portion of the total storage is also used by the operating system and system applications. Why am I getting no sound from my Notebook? You may have connected headphones to your Notebook. When headphones are connected, the speakers of the Notebook are automatically disabled. Disconnect the headphones from the Notebook in order to activate the speakers again. If there is still no sound from the speakers, check whether the sound on the Notebook is switched on and whether the volume is set high enough. Why does my Notebook just switch off sometimes? If the energy level of the battery falls below a critical level, the Notebook displays a corresponding warning. If you ignore these warnings, the Notebook is put into sleep mode at a charge level of 5 per cent in order to counteract total discharge of the battery. Total discharge can lead to a situation where it is no longer possible to charge the Notebook. For this reason, connect the tablet to the charger at this point at the latest in order to prevent data loss and damage to the battery.
My Notebook won’t switch on. What can I do? The battery may not be sufficiently charged to allow the Notebook to switch on. Connect the Notebook to the charger (see Section 8) to recharge the battery. How can I install Windows Updates on my Notebook? Your Notebook checks for new updates daily (an Internet connection must be available) and displays an appropriate message in the Action Center when new updates are available. To ensure your Notebook is always up-to-date, it is therefore extremely important to connect the Notebook regularly to the Internet (see Section 16). If you selected the "Express settings" option in the start assistant when you switched on for the first time, the Notebook automatically performs available updates when you shutdown (download and installation). You can change this setting at a later point in time. To do this, call up the settings (see Section 15) and select the method used to install updates under "Update & security" →"Windows Update" → "Advanced options" What can I do if the internal storage of my Notebook is full or almost full? To relieve the pressure on the internal storage of your Notebook and free up storage space, you can transfer media files stored on the Notebook (for example, images, videos or text files) to an external storage device (for example, a USB stick or suitable memory card) or you can delete apps that you no longer require.
27. Glossary Apps/Applications An app (abbreviation of the word "application") or application is a program that you can download from the Windows Store, for example, and install on your Notebook. Games, programs for playing back images and music files, word processing programs and a lot more are available. Audio Out/Mic In This description of the audio port on your Notebook indicates that you can connect simple headphones or earphones (audio signal out) to the port as well as a headset with microphone (audio/microphone signal in). Bluetooth® Bluetooth is a standardised wireless interface on your Notebook that enables a wireless exchange of data between your Notebook and other suitable peripheral devices.
HDMI® HDMI stands for "High Definition Multimedia Interface" and is a cable-based interface for digital image and sound transmission to connected HDMI-ready peripheral devices. Using a suitable HDMI cable, you can, for example, play the videos stored on your Notebook on an HDMI-ready television without having to first save the videos on your television. Microsoft account "Microsoft account" is the new name for the previous "Windows Live ID". Your Microsoft account consists of an e-mail address and a password that you need to sign into services such as Outlook.com, OneDrive, Windows Phone or Xbox Live. If you use an e-mail address and password to sign into these or other services, this means that you already have a Microsoft account. You can, however, register for a new account at any time.
