RAID Level 1
RAID level 1 uses a data-redundancy storage technique known as "mirroring." When data is written to the primary drive, it is then duplicated, or mirrored, on the other drive. A RAID level 1 configuration sacrifices high data access rates for its data redundancy advantages.
serial ATA RAID configured for RAID level 1
segment 1 segment 2 segment 3 segment 4 segment 5 segment 6 hard drive 1
segment 1 duplicated segment 2 duplicated segment 3 duplicated segment 4 duplicated segment 5 duplicated segment 6 duplicated hard drive 2
If a drive failure occurs, subsequent read and write operations are directed to the surviving drive. A replacement drive can then be rebuilt using the data from the surviving drive. Also, because data is duplicated on both drives, two 120-GB RAID level 1 drives collectively have a maximum of 120-GB on which to store data.
Configuring Your Computer for RAID
At some point you may want to configure your computer for RAID if you did not select a RAID configuration when you purchased your computer. You must have at least two hard drives installed in your computer to set up a RAID configuration. For instructions on how to install a hard drive, see page 92. You can use one of two methods to configure RAID hard drive volumes. One method uses the Intel(R) Option ROM utility, and is performed before you install the operating system onto the hard drive. The second method uses the Intel Application Accelerator, or Intel Storage Utility, and this method is performed after you have installed the operating system and the Intel Storage Utility. Both methods require that you set your computer to RAID-enabled mode before starting any of the RAID configuration procedures in this document.
Setting Your Computer to RAID-Enabled Mode
Enter system setup (see page 112). Use the up- and down-arrow keys to highlight Drives, and press <Enter>. Use the up- and down-arrow keys to highlight Drive Controller, and press <Enter>. Use the left- and right-arrow keys to highlight RAID On, press <Enter>, and then press <Esc>.
Use the left- and right-arrow keys to highlight Save/Exit, and press <Enter> to exit system setup and resume the boot process.
Configuring for RAID Using the Intel(R) Option ROM Utility
NOTE: Although any size drives may be used to create a RAID configuration using the Intel Option ROM
utility, ideally the drives should be of equal size. In a RAID level 0 configuration, the size of the array will be the size of the smallest disk multiplied by the number (two) of disks in the array. In a RAID level 1 configuration, the size of the array will be the smaller of the two disks used.
Click the Start button, point to All Programs Accessories Communications, and then click Network Setup Wizard. On the welcome screen, click Next. Click Checklist for creating a network. NOTE: Selecting the connection method This computer connects directly to the Internet enables the
integrated firewall provided with Windows XP Service Pack 1 (SP1).
Complete the checklist and required preparations. Return to the Network Setup Wizard and follow the instructions on the screen.
The Microsoft Windows XP power management features can reduce the amount of electricity your computer uses when it is on and you are not using it. You can reduce power to just the monitor or the hard drive, or you can use standby mode or hibernate mode to reduce power to the entire computer. When the computer exits from a power conservation mode, the Windows desktop is restored to the state it was in before it entered the mode. NOTE: Windows XP Professional includes security and networking features not available in
Windows XP Home Edition. When a Windows XP Professional computer is connected to a network, different options related to security and networking appear in certain windows.
Standby mode conserves power by turning off the display and the hard drive after a time-out. When the computer exits from standby mode, it returns to the operating state it was in before it entered standby mode. To set standby mode to automatically activate after a defined period of inactivity:
Click the Start button and click Control Panel. Under Pick a category, click Performance and Maintenance. Under or pick a Control Panel icon, click Power Options.
To immediately activate standby mode without a period of inactivity, click the Start button, click Turn Off Computer, and then click Stand by. To exit from standby mode, press a key on the keyboard or move the mouse. NOTICE: If your computer loses power while in standby mode, it may lose data.
Hibernate mode conserves power by copying system data to a reserved area on the hard drive and then completely turning off the computer. When the computer exits from hibernate mode, the desktop is restored to the state it was in before it entered hibernate mode. To activate hibernate mode:
Click the Start button and click Control Panel. Under Pick a category, click Performance and Maintenance. Under or pick a Control Panel icon, click Power Options. Define your hibernate settings on the Power Schemes tab, Advanced tab, and Hibernate tab.
To exit from hibernate mode, press the power button. The computer may take a short time to exit from hibernate mode. Pressing a key on the keyboard or moving the mouse does not bring the computer out of hibernation, because the keyboard and the mouse do not function when the computer is in hibernate mode. Because hibernate mode requires a special file on your hard drive with enough disk space to store the contents of the computer memory, Dell creates an appropriately sized hibernate mode file before shipping the computer to you. If the computers hard drive becomes corrupted, Windows XP recreates the hibernate file automatically.
Power Options Properties
Define your standby mode settings, hibernate mode settings, and other power settings in the Power Options Properties window. To access the Power Options Properties window:
Click the Start button and click Control Panel. Under Pick a category, click Performance and Maintenance. Under or pick a Control Panel icon, click Power Options. Define your power settings on the Power Schemes tab, Advanced tab, and Hibernate tab.
Power Schemes Tab
Each standard power setting is called a scheme. If you want to select one of the standard Windows schemes installed on your computer, choose a scheme from the Power schemes drop-down menu. The settings for each scheme appear in the fields below the scheme name. Each scheme has different settings for starting standby mode or hibernate mode, turning off the monitor, and turning off the hard drive. The Power schemes drop-down menu displays the following schemes: 30 Always On (default) If you want to use your computer with no power conservation. Home/Office Desk If you use your computer as a home or office computer and you require minimal power conservation. Portable/Laptop If your computer is a portable computer that you use for traveling.
Presentation If you want your computer to run without interruption (using no power conservation). Minimal Power Management If you want your computer to run with minimal power conservation. Max Battery If your computer is a portable computer and you run your computer from batteries for extended periods of time.
If you want to change the default settings for a scheme, click the drop-down menu in the Turn off monitor, Turn off hard disks, System stand by, or System hibernates field, and then select a timeout from the displayed list. Changing the time-out for a scheme field permanently changes the default settings for that scheme, unless you click Save As and enter a new name for the changed scheme. NOTICE: If you set the hard drive (hard disk) to time-out before the monitor does, your computer may appear to be locked up. To recover, press any key on the keyboard or click the mouse. To avoid this problem, always set the monitor to time-out before the hard drive.
The Advanced tab allows you to: Place the power options icon in the Windows taskbar for quick access. Set the computer to prompt you for your Windows password before the computer exits from standby mode or hibernate mode. Program the power button to activate standby mode, activate hibernate mode, or turn off the computer.
To program these functions, click an option from the corresponding drop-down menu and click OK.
The Hibernate tab allows you to enable hibernate mode. If you want to use the hibernate settings you defined on the Power Schemes tab, click the Enable hibernate support check box on the Hibernate tab. For more information on power management options:
Click the Start button and click Help and Support. In the Help and Support window, click Performance and maintenance. In the Performance and maintenance window, click Conserving power on your computer.
Hyper-Threading is an Intel technology that can enhance overall computer performance by allowing one physical processor to function as two logical processors, capable of performing certain tasks simultaneously. It is recommended that you use the Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 1

You can increase your computer memory by installing memory modules on the system board. Your computer supports DDR2 memory. For additional information on the type of memory supported by your computer, see "Memory" on page 107.
DDR2 Memory Overview
DDR2 memory modules should be installed in pairs of matched memory size, speed, and technology. If the DDR2 memory modules are not installed in matched pairs, the computer will continue to operate, but with a slight reduction in performance. See the label on the upper-right corner of the module to determine the modules capacity.
NOTE: Always install DDR2 memory modules in the order indicated on the system board. The recommended memory configurations are: or A pair of matched memory modules installed in DIMM connectors 1 and 2 and another matched pair installed in DIMM connectors 3 and 4 A pair of matched memory modules installed in DIMM connectors 1 and 2
NOTICE: Do not install ECC memory modules. If you install mixed pairs of DDR2 400-MHz (PC2-3200) and DDR2 533-MHz (PC2-4200) memory, the modules function at the slowest speed installed. Be sure to install a single memory module in DIMM connector 1, the connector closest to the processor, before you install modules in the other connectors.
matched pair of memory modules in DIMM connectors 1 and 2 (white securing clips)
matched pair of memory modules in DIMM connectors 3 and 4 (black securing clips)
NOTE: Memory purchased from Dell is covered under your computer warranty. NOTICE: If you remove your original memory modules from the computer during a memory upgrade, keep them separate from any new modules that you may have, even if you purchased the new modules from Dell. If possible, do not pair an original memory module with a new memory module. Otherwise, your computer may not start properly. You should install your original memory modules in pairs either in DIMM connectors 1 and 2 or DIMM connectors 3 and 4.
Addressing Memory With 4-GB Configurations
Your computer supports a maximum of 4 GB of memory when you use four 1-GB DIMMs. Current operating systems, such as Microsoft Windows XP, can only use a maximum of 4 GB of address space; however, the amount of memory available to the operating system is less than 4 GB. Certain components within the computer require address space in the 4-GB range. Any address space reserved for these components cannot be used by computer memory.
Removing a CD/DVD Drive
Follow the procedures in "Before You Begin" on page 59. Disconnect the power and data cables from the back of the drive.
Press inward on the two tabs on the sides of the drive, and then slide the drive upward and remove it from the drive bay.
Installing a CD/DVD Drive
If you are installing a new drive, unpack the drive and prepare it for installation. Check the documentation that accompanied the drive to verify that the drive is configured for your computer. If you are installing an IDE drive, configure the drive for the cable select setting.
Connect the new drive to the set of rails that are attached to the inside of the cover. If a set of rails is not attached inside the cover, contact Dell (see page 123). If you are installing a replacement drive and the new drive does not have the bracket rails attached, remove the rails from the old drive by removing the two screws that secure each rail to the drive. Attach the bracket to the new drive by aligning the screw holes on the drive with the screw holes on the bracket rails and then inserting and tightening all four screws (two screws on each rail).
Gently slide the drive into place until the tabs securely click into position. Connect the power and data cables to the drive.
If you are installing a new CD/DVD drive rather than replacing a drive, remove the frontpanel inserts (see page 94). Check all cable connections, and fold cables out of the way to provide airflow for the fan and cooling vents.
Close the computer cover (see page 104). NOTICE: To connect a network cable, first plug the cable in to the network device and then plug it in to the computer.
Enter system setup (see page 111) and select the appropriate Drive option. Verify that your computer works correctly by running the Dell Diagnostics (see page 52).
CAUTION: Before you begin any of the procedures in this section, follow the safety instructions located in the Product Information Guide. NOTICE: To prevent static damage to components inside your computer, discharge static electricity from your body before you touch any of your computers electronic components. You can do so by touching an unpainted metal surface on the computer chassis. A coin-cell battery maintains computer configuration, date, and time information. The battery can last several years. If you have to repeatedly reset time and date information after turning on the computer, replace the battery. CAUTION: A new battery can explode if it is incorrectly installed. Replace the battery only with the same or equivalent type recommended by the manufacturer. Discard used batteries according to the manufacturers instructions. To replace the battery:
Record all the screens in system setup (see page 111) so that you can restore the correct settings in step 8. Follow the procedures in "Before You Begin" on page 59. Locate the battery socket (see page 71). NOTICE: If you pry the battery out of its socket with a blunt object, be careful not to touch the system board with the object. Ensure that the object is inserted between the battery and the socket before you attempt to pry out the battery. Otherwise, you may damage the system board by prying off the socket or by breaking circuit traces on the system board.
