INSTRUCTION FOR n610c

Introduction:

The n610c is a 2.4 Ghz P4.   Sometimes these units will not (initially) start with the battery installed.  Plug in the power cord.  If the laptop does not start, remove the battery, and then press the start button one time.  There is a 2 second delay for the laptop to turn on.

XP Install.

In order to install XP, you have to start the computer and open the dvd/cdrw drive.  Place the XP disk in the slot firmly, and then close the drive.  Press control-alt-delete to restart the computer.  XP should then automatically load.

If XP does not automatically load, try to restart the computer and keep pressing F9 until you hear a “beep”.  Xp should then load.  During Loading you will be asked to format – don’t worry – just click quick format and NTFS.

Word Processing:

We recommend the FREE Open Office Software.  It’s just like Microsoft Word. You can download it once to “Jump Drive” and then just reinstall it on all or your laptops.  http://download.openoffice.org/

WIFI Installation

We are providing a PCMCIA Wifi Card.   It is important that you load the software first AND THEN install the wifi card.  If you install the WIFI card FIRST, then it WON’T work.  Be patient, it may take 5 minutes to load even if it seems like nothing is happening.
