Releases the battery.
The computer uses an internal fan to create airflow through the vents, which prevents the computer from overheating.
NOTE: The computer turns on the fan when the computer gets hot. Fan noise is normal and does not indicate a problem with the fans or the computer. CAUTION: Do not block, push objects into, or allow dust to accumulate in the air vents. Do not store your computer in a low-airflow environment, such as a closed briefcase, while it is running. Restricting the airflow can damage the computer or cause a fire.
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.
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.
5 Click Next. If you selected Set up my connection manually, continue to step 6. Otherwise, follow the instructions on the screen to complete the setup. NOTE: If you do not know which type of connection to select, contact your ISP. 6 Click the appropriate option under How do you want to connect to the Internet?, and then click Next. 7 Use the setup information provided by your ISP to complete the setup. If you are having problems connecting to the Internet, see "E-Mail, Modem, and Internet Problems" on page 46. If you cannot connect to the Internet but have successfully connected in the past, the ISP might have a service outage. Contact your ISP to check the service status, or try connecting again later.
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.

Power Protection Devices
Several devices are available to protect against power fluctuations and failures: Surge protectors Line conditioners Uninterruptible power supplies (UPS)
Surge protectors and power strips equipped with surge protection help to prevent damage to your computer from voltage spikes that can occur during electrical storms or following power interruptions. The level of protection is usually commensurate with the cost of the surge protector. Some surge protector manufacturers include warranty coverage for certain types of damage. Carefully read the device warranty when choosing a surge protector. A device with a higher joule rating offers more protection. Compare joule ratings to determine the relative effectiveness of different devices. NOTICE: Most surge protectors do not protect against power fluctuations or power interruptions caused by nearby lightning strikes. When lightning occurs in your area, disconnect the telephone line from the telephone wall jack and disconnect your computer from the electrical outlet.

Dell AC Adapter Recall FAQ
What is the issue with the Dell C-Family AC Adapter? The adapters can overheat, which could pose risk of fire or electrical shock.
What are the symptoms of the issue? Customers could experience smoke emitting from the AC adapter. Customers could also experience the housing of the AC adapter melting or, in some cases, a flame.
What is Dell doing to correct the issues? Dell worked with the AC adapter supplier to address the issue. All service stock and customer kit stock was updated to contain only unaffected parts. We will begin proactive AC adapter replacements in October 2004.
How is the AC Adapter being changed to address the issue? The adapter has been redesigned to prevent future occurrences of this problem. The AC adapter shipping with current Dell platforms (except Inspiron 1000) has a different design that enables cord wrapping.
Why are the D-Family AC Adapters different from the C-Family AC Adapters? The redesign of the Latitude line of products offered an opportunity to implement significant feature and functionality changes that added value for our customers. The D-Family contains a number of improvements and enhancements, some of which were implemented in the AC Adapter. Enhancements from C-Family to D-Family included: Longer and thinner, 6 foot DC cord and shorter, 3 foot AC cord makes wrapping easier. Recessed AC cord connector facilitates wrapping and reduces overall size. New barrel connector enables easier insertion at any orientation. One brick design with both 2-wire and 3-wire functionality improved the design for global customers. This redesign virtually eliminated dangling wire in Japan. Removable rubber strap secures the cords with loop fastener. All currently shipping Latitude, Dell Precision and Inspiron notebooks use these new adapters (excluding the Inspiron 1000).
What causes the issue? The issue is associated with mechanical wear, such as that caused by repeated winding and bending or violently pulling of the AC adapter cord, which can cause stress at the joint where the AC inlet pins connect to the adapters circuit board.
Is it a safety issue? Yes. The adapters can overheat, which could pose risk of fire or electrical shock.
Is there a risk of data loss with the issue? No. The failure mode will result in the AC adapter being inoperable.
Have any incidents been reported from the field regarding this issue? Yes. A small number of Dell customers have reported overheating-related incidents with the affected adapter. One customer received a minor burn.
With what Dell systems did the AC Adapter ship? Latitude CP, CPi, CPiA, CPtC, CPiR, CPxH, CPtV, CS, CSx, CPxJ, CPtS, C500, C510, C600, C610, C800, C810, V700, C-Dock, C-Port Precision M40 Inspiron 2500, 2600, 3700, 3800, 4000, 4100, 4150, 5000, 5000e, 7500, 7550, 8000, 8100, Advanced Port Replicator, Docking Station
Are Latitude D-Family AC adapters affected? No.
What is the timeframe in which the adapters shipped to customers? September 1998 through February 2002
What part numbers are affected by the issue? Dell part numbers 9364U, 7832D and 4983D.
What should I do if I bought one of these systems in the affected timeframe? Customers should log onto www.delladapterprogram.com to determine if they have an adapter affected by this issue. If customers cannot access the website, customers may also call 800-418-8590, Monday Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. CST, to determine if they have an affected adapter. Customers should discontinue use of any adapter which is determined to be affected.
How do I contact Dell to find out more information about this issue? Customers should log onto www.delladapterprogram.com to determine if they have an adapter affected by this issue.
Customers will need to locate the identification label on the adapter and enter this number on the web site. Dell will compare the identification numbers to a list of known affected adapters. If it is affected the customer will automatically be connected to a replacement order entry request web page. Customers may also call 800-418-8590, Monday Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. CST. Please see Addendum A for an international phone list.
What should I do until I receive my replacement adapter? If the adapter has been determined to be potentially affected via the www.delladapterprogram.com website, Dell recommends customers cease the use of the adapter until they receive the replacement.
What has been done to make sure Dell does not ship the affected parts? Shipment of affected parts ended in February 2002.
Is Dell going to proactively take field action? Yes. Dell is participating with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and other regulatory agencies around the world to provide customers with notice of the issue and replacement adapters. Dell is also providing a means for customers to return the affected adapters to Dell for proper disposal. We will begin proactive AC adapter replacements in October 2004.
Is this a recall? Yes. Dell is participating with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and other regulatory agencies around the world to provide customers with notice of the issue and replacement adapters. Dell is also providing a means for customers to return the affected adapters to Dell for proper disposal. We will begin proactive AC adapter replacements in October 2004. Is this a global recall? Yes. The legally approved documents have been distributed to Dell regions worldwide. Each region will be contacting their customer lists, and they will be providing options such as bulk shipments and on-site assistance. For global accounts, the SAM (Service Account Manager) team can help coordinate communication for your account with our global contacts. For indirect countries, each of the regions will be working with the local service provider/reseller to identify the location of affected AC adapters.
How is Dell going to contact customers? Dell will be directly contacting its customers for whom it has reliable customer contact information, via email, letters or phone calls. Dell will also work with the CPSC on its press release and will post a notice on its website.
Why didn't Dell provide any prior notice to our corporate customers before the press release was issued? Dell notification is intended to support all customers as expediently as possible given the nature of the potential issue. Simultaneous notification was deemed the most efficient method to accomplish this goal.
Do I have to pay for the shipping charges when I return the affected adapters to Dell? No. When you receive new adapters, you will also receive return air bill labels to return the affected adapters to Dell.
Why is Dell requesting the return of the customers old AC adapters? To ensure that the affected adapters are no longer used and to properly dispose of them.
Why are we only being notified now? This issue shows up over time and these adapters have extremely small failure rates. We are now working to procure additional service parts to deploy this proactive service campaign.
