Removing the Web Camera
If an error occurs, reconnect the connector on the System board. If the error still remains:
Keyboard or Auxiliary Input Device Check
Remove the external keyboard if the internal keyboard is to be tested. If the internal keyboard does not work or an unexpected character appears, make sure that the flexible cable extending from the keyboard is correctly seated in the connector on the system board. If the keyboard cable connection is correct, run the Keyboard Test. If the tests detect a keyboard problem, do the following one at a time to correct the problem. Do not replace a non-defective FRU: 1. 2. 3. Reconnect the keyboard cables. Replace the keyboard. Replace the main board.
The following auxiliary input devices are supported by this computer:
If any of these devices do not work, reconnect the cable connector and repeat the failing operation.
Memory errors might stop system operations, show error messages on the screen, or hang the system. 1. 2. 3. Boot from the diagnostics diskette and start the diagnostic program (please refer to main board. Go to the diagnostic memory in the test items. Press F2 in the test items.
4. Follow the instructions in the message window. NOTE: Make sure that the DIMM is fully installed into the connector. A loose connection can cause an error.
Power System Check
To verify the symptom of the problem, power on the computer using each of the following power sources: 1. 2. 3. Remove the battery pack. Connect the power adapter and check that power is supplied. Disconnect the power adapter and install the charged battery pack; then check that power is supplied by the battery pack. Check the Power Adapter on page 104 Check the Battery Pack on page 105
If you suspect a power problem, see the appropriate power supply check in the following list:
Check the Power Adapter
Unplug the power adapter cable from the computer and measure the output voltage at the plug of the power adapter cable. See the following figure
Pin 1: +19 to +20.5V Pin 2: 0V, Ground
If the voltage is not correct, replace the power adapter. If the voltage is within the range, do the following:
Replace the System board. If the problem is not corrected, see Undetermined Problems on page 120.
If the voltage is not correct, go to the next step. NOTE: An audible noise from the power adapter does not always indicate a defect.
If the power-on indicator does not light up, check the power cord of the power adapter for correct continuity and installation. If the operational charge does not work, see Check the Battery Pack on page 105.

Clearing Password Check and BIOS Recovery
This section provide you the standard operating procedures of clearing password and BIOS recovery for TravelMate 5730 Series. TravelMate 5730 Series provide one Hardware Open Gap on main board for clearing password check, and one Hotkey for enabling BIOS Recovery.
Clearing Password Check
Hardware Open Gap Description
Hardware Gap Default Setting Open (Normal) Operation Description Short (Clearing Password Check)
HW Gap position on M/B space:
Gap name in TravelMate 5730 Series is G77
Steps for Clearing BIOS Password Check
If users set BIOS Password (Supervisor Password and/or User Password) for a security reason, BIOS will ask the password during systems POST or when systems enter to BIOS Setup menu. However, once it is necessary to bypass the password check, users need to short the HW Gap to clear the password by the following steps: Power Off a system, and remove HDD, AC and Battery from the machine. Open the back cover of the machine, and find out the HW Gap on M/B as picture. Use an electric conductivity tool to short the two points of the HW Gap. Plug in AC, keep the short condition on the HW Gap, and press Power Button to power on the system till BIOS POST finish. Then remove the tool from the HW Gap. Restart system. Press F2 key to enter BIOS Setup menu.
If there is no Password request, BIOS Password is cleared. Otherwise, please follow the steps and try again. NOTE: The steps are only for clearing BIOS Password (Supervisor Password and User Password).
BIOS Recovery by Crisis Disk
BIOS Recovery Boot Block:
BIOS Recovery Boot Block is a special block of BIOS. It is used to boot up the system with minimum BIOS initialization. Users can enable this feature to restore the BIOS firmware to a successful one once the previous BIOS flashing process failed.
BIOS Recovery Hotkey:
The system provides a function hotkey: Fn+Esc, for enable BIOS Recovery process when system is powered on during BIOS POST. To use this function, it is strongly recommended to have the AC adapter and Battery present. If this function is enabled, the system will force the BIOS to enter a special BIOS block, called Boot Block.
Steps for BIOS Recovery by Crisis Disk:
Before doing this, one Crisis Disk should be prepared ready in hand. The Crisis Disk could be made by executing the Crisis Disk program in another system with Windows XP OS. Follow the steps below: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Power Off system. Insert the Crisis Disk to a USB floppy drive which is attached to the BIOS flash failed machine. In the power-off state, press Fn+Esc and hold them and then press Power Button. The system should be powered on with Crisis BIOS Recovery process. BIOS Boot Block starts to restore the BIOS code from the Crisis floppy disk to BIOS ROM on the failed machine. If the Crisis flashing process is finished, the system will restart.
