Setting Up and Using Your Computer
Setting Up a Printer
NOTICE: Complete the operating system setup before you connect a printer to the computer. See the documentation that came with the printer for setup information, including how to: Obtain and install updated drivers Connect the printer to the computer Load paper and install the toner or ink cartridge Contact the printer manufacturer for technical assistance
Your printer connects to your computer with a USB cable. Your printer may not come with a printer cable, so if you purchase a cable separately, ensure that it is compatible with your printer. If you purchased a printer cable at the same time you purchased your computer, the cable may arrive in the computer box.
Connecting a USB Printer
NOTE: You can connect USB devices while the computer is turned on. 1 Complete the operating system setup, if you have not already done so. 2 Install the printer driver if necessary. See the documentation that came with your printer. 3 Attach the USB printer cable to the USB connectors on the computer and the printer. The USB connectors fit only one way.

Connecting to the Internet
NOTE: ISPs and ISP offerings vary by country. To connect to the Internet, you need a modem or network connection and an Internet service provider (ISP), such as AOL or MSN. Your ISP will offer one or more of the following Internet connection options: Dial-up connections that provide Internet access through a telephone line. Dial-up connections are considerably slower than DSL and cable modem connections. DSL connections that provide high-speed Internet access through your existing telephone line. With a DSL connection, you can access the Internet and use your telephone on the same line simultaneously. Cable modem connections that provide high-speed Internet access through your local cable TV line. NOTE: If you use a dial-up connection, you need an add-in PCI modem expansion card. 14
If you are using a dial-up connection, connect a telephone line to the modem connector on your computer and to the telephone wall jack before you set up your Internet connection. If you are using a DSL or cable modem connection, contact your ISP for setup instructions.
Setting Up Your Internet Connection
To set up an AOL or MSN connection: 1 Save and close any open files, and exit any open programs. 2 Double-click the MSN Explorer or AOL icon on the Microsoft Windows desktop. 3 Follow the instructions on the screen to complete the setup. If you do not have an MSN Explorer or AOL icon on your desktop or if you want to set up an Internet connection with a different ISP: 1 Save and close any open files, and exit any open programs. 2 Click the Start button and click Internet Explorer. The New Connection Wizard appears. 3 Click Connect to the Internet. 4 In the next window, click the appropriate option: If you do not have an ISP and want to select one, click Choose from a list of Internet service providers (ISPs). If you have already obtained setup information from your ISP but you did not receive a setup CD, click Set up my connection manually. If you have a CD, click Use the CD I got from an ISP.
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.

IEEE 1394 is a digital interface that can move large amounts of data between computers and peripheral devices. IEEE 1394 is ideal for use with multimedia devices because it speeds the transfer of data and large files, which enables a computer to connect directly to devices such as digital video cameras. NOTE: The connector can accept 4-pin IEEE 1394 devices with the use of an adapter. Your computer may have an optional front IEEE 1394 connector (see "Front View of the Computer" on page 65). This connector is only available if you purchased an add-in card that uses IEEE 1394. To purchase a card, contact Dell.
Creating a Spare Hard Drive
A spare hard drive may be created with a RAID level 1 configuration. The spare hard drive will not be recognized by the operating system, but you will be able to see the spare drive from within Disk Manager or the Intel RAID Option ROM utility. When a member of the RAID level 1 configuration is broken, the computer automatically rebuilds the mirror configuration using the spare hard drive as the broken members replacement. To Mark a Drive as a Spare Hard Drive: 1 Click the Start button and point to Programs Intel(R) Application Accelerator Intel Matrix Storage Manager to launch the Intel Storage Utility. 2 Right-click the hard drive you want to mark as a spare hard drive. 3 Click Mark as Spare. To Remove Spare Marking From a Spare Hard Drive: 1 Right-click the spare hard drive icon. 2 Click Reset Hard Drive to Non-RAID
Rebuilding a Degraded RAID Level 1 Configuration
If your computer does not have a spare hard drive, and the computer has reported a degraded RAID level 1 volume, you can manually rebuild the computers redundancy mirror to a new hard drive by performing the following steps: 1 Click the Start button and point to Programs Intel(R) Application Accelerator Intel Matrix Storage Manager to launch the Intel Storage Utility. 2 Right-click the available hard drive to which you want to rebuild the RAID level 1 volume, and click Rebuild to this Disk. You can use your computer while the computer is rebuilding the RAID level 1 volume.
Understanding Intel Viiv Technology (Optional)
Intel Viiv technology is a technology aimed at the digital home enthusiast that includes: A BIOS with Quick Resume Device drivers
This technology allows the users system to quickly return to an active state after non-use Intel Viiv technology is an option for systems that are ordered with Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 and dual core processors.
Using Intel Viiv Quick Resume Technology (Optional)
When running in the Intel Viiv Quick Resume Technology (QRT) mode, your power button is used as a quick on/off feature. Pressing the power button once causes the display to go blank and the audio to mute. In this mode, the computer is still operating as indicated by the power button indicator and diagnostic lights 1, 2, and 4 being lit.

Energy Save Requirements Description of Service Level
The system is running programs to maximize the power consumption. The system is in a waiting mode, such as at the MS-DOS prompt. The system is in a low-power sleep mode. The system is turned off but is still connected to its AC power source. AC adapter is connected to mains with portable detached (portables only). Meets EU Eco label (2001/686/EC and 2001/687/EC)
Yes / No / N/A
N/A N/A Yes Yes N/A
Energy consumption is tested at 230 Volts / 50 Hz. Heat dissipation is calculated based on the measured watts, assuming the service level is attained for one hour. Off data is not meant to show compliance to US Executive Order 13221. When applicable, Dell product information related to US Executive Order 13221 may be obtained at: http://oahu.lbl.gov/index.html. *Maximum Energy Consumption results are based solely upon the testing of the System Configuration listed above.
