BIOS Guide 
A guide to your notebook’s BIOS is available online. Please visit our service and support website at 
http://www.computers.us.fujitsu.com/support, then select User’s Guides under Online Support. Select 
your Product, Series, and Model, then click [Go]. Under the Manuals tab, select the BIOS Guide. 
Booting the System
We strongly recommend that you not attach any external devices and do not put a DVD/CD in your drive 
until you have gone through the initial power on sequence.
When you turn on your notebook for the first time, it will display a Fujitsu logo on the screen. If you do 
nothing the system will load the operating system, and then the Windows Welcome will begin.
Starting Windows Vista the First Time
In order to ensure that you receive the most benefits from the Windows Vista operating system, it should 
be registered the first time you use it.
