Using the Pavilion Notebook PC Working in Comfort Users Guide 33 Working in Comfort WARNING Improper use of keyboards and other input devices has been associated with ergonomic injury. For more information about reducing your risk visit our ergonomics Web site at www.hp.com/ergo. Thank you for selecting HP computing equipment. To optimize your comfort and productivity it is important that you set up your work area correctly and use your HP equipment properly. With that in mind we have developed some set-up and use recommendations for you to follow based on established ergonomic principles. Improper and prolonged use of keyboards and input devices are among those tasks that have been associated with repetitive strain injury RSI to soft tissues in the hands and arms. If you experience discomfort or pain while using any computing equipment discontinue use immediately and consult your physician as soon as possible. In addition to the information on RSI given in this chapter you may also consult the online version of Working in Comfort preloaded on the hard disk of your computer Start Programs Pavilion Library Working in Comfort or visit HP’s Working in Comfort Web site. About Repetitive Strain Injury Because your comfort and safety are our primary concern we strongly recommend that you use HP computing equipment in accordance with established ergonomic principles and recommendations. Scientific literature suggests that there may be a relationship between injury to soft tissues—especially in the hands and arms—and prolonged improper use of keyboards or other equipment requiring repeated motions of the hands and forearms. This literature also suggests that there are many other risk factors that may increase the chance of such injury commonly called Repetitive Strain Injury. What is RSI Repetitive Strain Injury RSI—also known as cumulative trauma disorder or repetitive motion injury is a type of injury where soft tissues in the body such as muscles nerves or tendons become irritated or inflamed. RSI has been a reported problem for those who perform repetitive tasks such as assembly line work meatpacking sewing playing musical instruments and computer work.

slide 34:

Using the Pavilion Notebook PC Working in Comfort 34 Users Guide RSI also has been observed in those who frequently engage in activities such as carpentry knitting housework gardening tennis windsurfing and lifting children. What causes RSI The specific causes of RSI have not been established. Nevertheless the incidence of RSI has been associated with a variety of risk factors including: • Too many uninterrupted repetitions of an activity or motion. • Performing an activity in an awkward or unnatural posture. • Maintaining static posture for prolonged periods. • Failing to take frequent short breaks. • Other environmental and psychosocial factors. In addition there have been reports associating the occurrence of RSI with the use of computer keyboards mice and other input devices. Also certain medical conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis obesity and diabetes may predispose some people to this type of injury. What can I do to avoid RSI Some people who use computers may experience physical discomfort during their use. This discomfort may be a symptom of a repetitive strain injury. Properly setting up and using computing equipment can help to minimize your chances of experiencing this discomfort. Well-designed and properly adjusted equipment alone may not be sufficient to eliminate all potential problems. Maintaining good posture and positioning when working on computers also has a significant bearing on your comfort. What if I experience discomfort If you are experiencing any discomfort seek professional medical advice immediately. Typically the earlier a problem is diagnosed and treated the easier it is to resolve. Preparing Your Work Environment When using HP computing equipment it is important that your work environment contribute to your comfort and productivity.

Using the Pavilion Notebook PC Working in Comfort Users Guide 35 Your Chair Its very important that your chair provides a comfortable sitting position and offers the following features: • A stable base such as five legs with casters. Make sure the casters are designed for the type of floor you have in your workspace whether it is bare or carpeted. • A height- and tilt-adjustment feature. It should be easy to adjust your chair height from 40 cm to 52 cm 15.5 inches to 20.5 inches as measured from the top of the seat pan to the floor. If you are much taller or shorter than average you may need a chair that can be adjusted beyond this range. Adjust your chair so that the work surface or keyboard tray is at elbow height and your feet are flat on the floor with your knees slightly bent below your hips. Ideally the seat pan should be able to tilt both forward minimum of 5 degrees and backward minimum of 10 degrees. If the chair has an adjustable seat pan inclining the seat slightly forward will transfer some of the pressure from the spine to the thighs and feet. This will relieve pressure on your back. • A curved seat edge. The front of the seat should be curved and finished in a “waterfall” edge. • An adjustable back support in both height and forward and backward tilt. It is important that the backrest correctly supports the lower part or lumbar curve of the back.

slide 36:

Using the Pavilion Notebook PC Working in Comfort 36 Users Guide • A freely rotating swivel so you can move easily from side-to-side. • Fully adjustable and padded armrests. The chair arms should not interfere with adjusting the chair or moving it close to your work surface. Your Work Surface Ideally you should be able to adjust the height of your work surface. A simple way to ensure your work surface is at the correct height is to first adjust the height of the seat-pan of your chair. With your chair properly adjusted and your feet firmly on the floor adjust the work surface height until your forearms are parallel to the floor when you have your fingers on the keyboard or other input device. Your Work Posture Sitting in one position for long periods can be uncomfortable. To minimize the potential for physical discomfort or injury its important that you maintain proper posture. • Back: While sitting at your work surface make sure your back is supported by the chairs backrest in an erect position or angled slightly backwards. • Arms: Your arms should be relaxed and loose elbows close to your sides with forearms and hands approximately parallel to the floor. • Wrists: Your wrists should be as straight as possible while using the keyboard mouse or trackball. They should not be bent sideways or more than 10 degrees up or down.

slide 37:

Using the Pavilion Notebook PC Working in Comfort Users Guide 37 • Legs: Your thighs should be horizontal or angled slightly downward. Your lower legs should be near a right angle to your thighs. Your feet should rest flat on the floor. If necessary use a footrest but double check that you have your seat height adjusted correctly before getting a footrest. • Head: Your head should be upright or tilted slightly forward. Avoid working with your head or trunk twisted. • Overall: Change your position frequently and take regular breaks to avoid fatigue. Setting Up Your HP Computing Equipment Make sure that all the elements of your HP computer system—monitor document holder keyboard mice and other input devices and headphones and speakers—are optimally arranged and adjusted to meet your personal requirements. The recommendations that follow will help you achieve this. Your HP Monitor It is important that your monitor screen be clean and positioned correctly to improve readability and help you work comfortably. Glare high contrast reflections dirt and dust will interfere with what you see on the screen. The recommendations that follow can help you achieve a comfortable arrangement.

slide 38:

Using the Pavilion Notebook PC Working in Comfort 38 Users Guide • The top of your monitor screen should be at or slightly below eye level. Most HP monitors come with a tilt-and-swivel feature that makes it easy to adjust the screen position. • To avoid obscuring your view the screen should be positioned perpendicular to your line of sight that is straight on. • To avoid glare or reflection try to position the monitor so the screen is at a right angle to your window rather than in front of it. If reflection or glare persists tilting the screen forward may help. • Maintain a comfortable viewing distance to the screen. Most people prefer a viewing distance of approximately 46 to 76 cm 18 to 30 inches depending on monitor size. Character size and the amount of space available on the work surface can affect this distance. • Text should be easy to read. To help ease eyestrain adjust text attributes such as character size spacing and color. In addition you will need to use the controls provided with your monitor to adjust the visual settings so that contrast and brightness levels are comfortable for you. High contrast and low brightness is usually the preferable combination. • The monitor should be free from flicker. If the image on your screen is not stable the monitor may require repair or adjustment. • When possible use a program that has a simple user interface such as easily identifiable icons and pull-down menus. Also screen information should be displayed in a structured and well-organized way. Monitor Use Specifications • When viewing your monitor your head should not be tilted more than 15 degrees forward. • You should not have to look up more than 5 degrees above horizontal or down more than 30 degrees below horizontal for normal work tasks such as typing or reading. Document Holders When keying in data from a hardcopy document placing it in a document holder rather than on a flat surface will make it easier to read. The following recommendations should be observed when using a document holder: • The document holder should be at approximately the same height and distance from your eyes as the screen and as close to the monitor as possible to prevent neck

slide 39:

Using the Pavilion Notebook PC Working in Comfort Users Guide 39 twisting. Some users prefer a document holder mounted to the monitor while others prefer the document holder positioned between the screen and keyboard. • If the primary task is to view documents rather than using the monitor the document holder may be placed directly in front of the keyboard with the monitor slightly to the side. • To help reduce stress on your neck and prevent eye fatigue try to minimize the movement of your head and eyes while using a document holder. Your HP Keyboard The proper positioning and use of your HP keyboard is important when using HP computing equipment. Be sure to observe the following recommendations to optimize your comfort and safety: • We recommend you place your keyboard in front of the screen or document holder whichever is viewed the most. Your HP keyboard has long cables so you can place it in the position that is most comfortable for you while you are using your system. • Because HP keyboards vary in depth youll want to be sure that your work surface or keyboard tray has sufficient room to accommodate your model. The keyboard tray should be wide enough to hold both the keyboard and mouse or trackball: 66 to 71 cm 26 to 28 inches. • Your HP keyboard may have a kickstand that can be opened or closed to raise or lower the keyboard angle. If you are in the correct sitting position with your elbows at about the same level as the work surface you may not need to use it. However if your elbows are below the work surface you may wish to use the kickstand to raise the back of the keyboard. • An adjustable keyboard tray may be useful if you cannot adjust your chair or work surface to the proper height for typing. It should adjust in height from 64 to 76 cm

slide 40:

Using the Pavilion Notebook PC Working in Comfort 40 Users Guide 25 to 30 inches above the floor and tilt forward and backward to help you find the most comfortable position. Note that research has shown that there may be less muscle tension in shoulders and forearms with the keyboard tilted away from you. • When using your HP keyboard remember it takes very little pressure or force from your fingers to activate the keys. Improper typing style—the use of too much force— can place unnecessary stress on the tendons and muscles in your hands wrists and forearms. • Make sure that your hands are in a neutral position when you use your keyboard. This means that your forearms wrists and hands should be in a straight line. • The keyboard has a low profile to help prevent excessive bending of your wrists while typing. Literature suggests that you should not bend your wrists sideways or more than 10 degrees up or down. Keep your wrists straight by moving your entire hand and forearm over to use the function keys or numeric keypad. • You may use a palm rest to help keep your hands and wrists in a comfortable and neutral position when you are not typing. Some HP keyboards come with an integrated palm rest. If you use a palm rest see that it is rounded and padded and flush in height with the front edge of the keyboard. Note that your palms—not your wrists—should rest on the palm rest. If you dont have a palm rest try not to rest your wrists on a sharp edge such as a work surface edge. Mice and Other Input Devices Various aspects of using mice and other input devices may increase your risk of discomfort or injury. If you connect an external mouse to your computer observing the following recommendations may reduce that risk. • As with the keyboard try to keep your hand wrist and forearm in a neutral position while using your mouse or other input device.

slide 41:

Using the Pavilion Notebook PC Working in Comfort Users Guide 41 • When using a stylus or light pen with a graphics tablet dont grip the stylus tightly. Keep your hand and fingers relaxed and try to maintain a neutral posture in your hand wrist and forearm. • If you use your thumb to rotate the ball on a trackball or spaceball keep it in a relaxed natural shape and maintain a neutral posture in your hand wrist and forearm. • Hold the mouse gently by draping your fingers over it. Keep your hand relaxed and fingers loose. Do not grip the mouse tightly. • It takes very little pressure or force from your fingers to activate the buttons or scroll wheel on your mouse scrolling mouse trackball or other input device. Using too much force can place unnecessary stress on the tendons and muscles in your hands wrists and forearms. • If you are using a scrolling mouse be sure to keep your fingers and hand in a relaxed neutral position when activating the scroll wheel. Also this type of mouse features software that can minimize the number of mouse movements or button clicks. • When using a mouse trackball stylus and graphics tablet or other input device position it as close to the keyboard as possible and keep it at the same level so you do not have to stretch while using it. • Use a good quality mouse pad to enable the mouse to work most effectively and reduce unnecessary hand and wrist movements. • Be sure to keep your mouse and trackball clean. Regular removal of accumulated dust and dirt helps ensure proper tracking and reduces unnecessary hand and wrist motions. Headphones and Speakers Listening to loud sounds for prolonged periods may permanently damage your hearing. To avoid discomfort from unexpected noise always turn down the volume before connecting headphones or speakers to your HP equipment. When you put on the headphones slowly increase the volume until you find a comfortable listening level then leave the volume control in that position. Comfort and Safety Checklist These recommendations are drawn from the latest available international ergonomic standards and recommendations including ISO 9241 and ANSI/HFS 100-1988.

slide 42:

Using the Pavilion Notebook PC Working in Comfort 42 Users Guide General • Work Surface Height: Adjust either your seat height work surface or both to position the work surface at approximately elbow height. • Work Surface Arrangement: Make sure frequently used equipment is within easy reach. For example if you are primarily using the keyboard place it directly in front of you not to the side. If you are primarily using the mouse place it in front of your hand or arm. If you are using both a mouse and keyboard place them both at the same work surface height and close together. If a palm rest is used the height should be flush with the front edge of the keyboard. Other items such as your telephone or notepad also should be considered. • Monitor: Place your monitor so that the top of the screen is at or slightly below eye level up to 15 degrees. • Head: Do not tilt your head forward by more than 15 degrees and try not to turn your head toward the side. • Back: While sitting at your work surface make sure your back is supported by the chairs backrest in an erect position or angled slightly backwards. • Arms: Make sure your arms and elbows are relaxed and loose with your upper arm perpendicular to the floor or slightly forward. Keep your forearms and hands approximately parallel with the floor with elbows bent between 70 and 115 degrees. Keep your elbows close to your sides less than 20 degrees away from your body. • Legs: Your thighs should be horizontal or angled slightly downward. Your lower legs should be near a right angle to your thighs. Make sure there is sufficient room under the work surface for your legs. • Feet: If after adjusting your chair you cannot rest your feet comfortably on the floor use a footrest preferably one that can be adjusted in height and angle.

slide 43:

Using the Pavilion Notebook PC Working in Comfort Users Guide 43 Overall • Look away from the screen from time to time to help reduce eyestrain. Focus on distant objects briefly and blink periodically to lubricate your eyes. You also should have your eyes checked on a regular basis and ensure your eyeglass prescription is suitable for working on a monitor screen. • Remember to occasionally shift position and move your body. Keeping your body in one position for long periods is unnatural and stressful. When prolonged work is required take frequent short breaks. As a rule of thumb a five- or ten-minute break every hour is a good idea. Short frequent breaks are more beneficial than longer less frequent breaks. Data show that people who work for long periods of time without a break may be more prone to injury. • Changing tasks frequently will help prevent muscle stiffness. Examples: alternating between keyboarding reading writing filing and moving around in your work environment helps you maintain a relaxed posture. Occasionally stretch the muscles in your hands arms shoulders neck and back. You should stretch at least as often as you take brief task breaks—at least once every hour. • Discomfort may be alleviated by using alternative ergonomic designs and accessories such as ergonomically personalized chairs palm rests keyboard trays alternative input devices prescription eyeglasses anti-glare screens and more. Seek additional information from the sources available to you including your employer doctor local office supply store and the information sources listed in the online version of Working in Comfort which is preloaded on the hard disk of your HP computing equipment. Your HP Pavilion Notebook PC You can use your HP Pavilion Notebook virtually anywhere anytime. The following recommendations should help you work more comfortably. Note that if you are using your portable computer as your primary computer or using it for extended periods you should use it with a full-size keyboard monitor and mouse. This will give your portable computer the adjustability and comfort features of a desktop unit. HP port replicators offer quick easy connections to these devices. More information on how to prepare your workspace environment and set up your HP equipment is available in other sections of Working in Comfort with Your HP Computing Equipment.

slide 44:

Using the Pavilion Notebook PC Working in Comfort 44 Users Guide Preparing Your Mobile Work Environment • Use a chair that provides good support for your lower back. If an adjustable chair is not available you can use a pillow or rolled-up towel to provide lower back support. • Try to keep your thighs parallel to the floor and your feet flat on the floor. In a mobile environment you can do this by using a phone book or briefcase to support your feet. • Adjust the height of either your work surface or chair to keep your arms in a neutral position. Your arms should be relaxed and loose elbows at your sides with the forearms and hands parallel with the floor. • Position your notebook computer display to minimize glare and reflection. For example on an airplane lower the window shade or in a hotel room draw the curtains. You also should maintain a comfortable viewing distance approximately 40 to 60 cm 16 to 24 inches. Adjust the angle of your display to help keep your head angled slightly downward in a comfortable position. Using Your Mobile Computer • Position the computer so your wrists and hands are in a neutral position. Your wrists should be as straight as possible and should not have to bend sideways or more than 10 degrees up or down. If your notebook computer does not have a built-in palm rest you can use a rolled-up towel. • Try to type as lightly as possible. The notebook keyboard requires little force to activate. • Take frequent short rest breaks. This is especially important in a mobile computing environment. • Portable computers weigh between approximately 1.4 and 3.7 kilos 3 and 8 pounds. When traveling be sure to carry your computer properly to minimize strain on your body. Shift the bag containing your notebook equipment frequently between your left and right hands and shoulders.

Making Connections Using Your Modem 58 Users Guide Using Your Modem By connecting your modem to a telephone line your PC can communicate with other computers throughout the world. You can explore the Internet send and receive e-mail messages and use your PC to send and receive faxes. Your Pavilion PC contains several software programs that work with your modem: • Internet Explorer for browsing the World Wide Web • Outlook Express for sending and receiving e-mail messages • QuickLink III for sending and receiving faxes • eFax a link to a Web site that allows you to receive faxes at your existing e-mail address The computer comes with a high-velocity V.90 K56flex™ modem. This modem allows you to connect to any Internet Service Provider ISP that has K56flex or V.90 interoperable modems. Check with your ISP for a list of telephone numbers that support K56flex and/or V.90. In most cases the V.90 phone number will be the same as the K56flex number. Note that the maximum speed for faxing is 14.4Kbps. Even though the modem is capable of downloading at 56Kbps using K56flex technology your ISP may not operate at this speed or support this technology. Please check with your service provider for information on its capabilities. Furthermore download transmission rates depend on the condition of the telephone line. To sign up with an Internet Service Provider Before you can connect to the Internet you need to set up an account with an Internet Service Provider. The notebook comes with wizards to help you locate and sign up with an ISP in your area. If you have an existing provider you’d like to continue using you can use these same wizards to enter your account information. 1. Connect the included telephone cord to the built-in modem. If you prefer you can instead use a PC Card modem or an external modem to connect to an Internet Service Provider.

Parameter Acceptable Values automode 0 Automode Disabled 1 Automode Enabled min_rate 300 to 33600 max_rate 300 to 33600 To force a maximum rate set the minimum rate to the same value as the maximum value. NOTE Many countries impose a blackout period after a modem repeatedly fails to connect to a service provider. The number of failed attempts and the period of time you must wait differ from country to country. Check with your telephone company for more information. To dial in France and Spain If you purchased your computer in Spain the pulse dialing feature is disabled. Because Loop Disconnect is not certified for your modem in Spain you should use tone dialing connections only. In order to access the MiniTel system in France you will need the latest modem driver and MiniTel emulator software. The modem driver is available for download from the technical support area on the HP Pavilion Notebook Web site http://www.hp.com/notebooks.
