B A T T E R Y / B A T T E R Y B A Y When a battery is installed, you can use the computer without connecting the computer to an electrical outlet. See page 41. A I R V E N T S The computer uses an internal fan to create airflow through the vents, which prevents the computer from overheating. 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: The fan runs constantly, and fan speed may vary depending on usage. Fan noise is normal and does not indicate a problem with the fan or the computer.

System and Battery Performance Optimization
System Performance Overview
System performance may be reduced under specific conditions to prevent automatic system shutdown and potential data loss. Conditions under which performance is reduced include:
P R O C E S S O R G E T S H O T Performance is reduced when system temperature exceeds established thermal parameters. This performance reduction helps to regulate the system and surface temperatures, which prevents the computer from shutting down due to excessive processor temperatures.
A C A D A P T E R T H R O U G H P U T Performance is reduced when the computer is running on AC power and power consumption exceeds the established parameters of the AC Adapter. This performance reduction ensures that the system does not try to consume more power than the AC adapter can provide. Performance is reduced when the computer is running on battery power and power consumption exceeds the established parameters of the batterys rated capacity or exceeds allowable safe discharge levels, or when the battery surface temperature exceeds 60C.
The AC adapter charges a completely discharged battery in approximately 3 hours with the computer turned off. Charge time is significantly longer if the computer is on and running at high processor speeds and system activity levels. If you run your computer at high system activity levels for extended periods of time and your battery is not charging, try running your system in Low Power Mode. Low Power Mode can improve battery charge time and battery life. Depending on system activity levels, system performance may be reduced. To set Low Power Mode:
NOTE: You can also click the power meter icon on the taskbar. 3
Click the Start button Control Panel Performance and Maintenance Power Options. Click the Power Schemes tab. In the Power schemes drop-down menu, click Low Power Mode.
For more information on power management, see the Tell Me How help file. To access the help file, see page 80.
Variable Speed Fan
The computer uses a variable speed fan to prevent the computer from overheating. The fan runs constantly, and fan speed may vary depending on usage. Fan noise is normal and does not indicate a problem with the fan or the computer.
Technician-assisted technical support requires the cooperation and participation of the customer in the troubleshooting process and provides for restoration of the operating system, software programs, and hardware drivers to the original default configuration as shipped from Dell, as well as the verification of appropriate functionality of the computer and all Dell-installed hardware.
