3 Connecting to a network
Your computer can travel with you wherever you go. But even at home, you can explore the globe
and access information from millions of websites using your computer and a wired or wireless
network connection. This chapter will help you get connected to that world.
Connecting to a wireless network
Wireless technology transfers data across radio waves instead of wires. Your computer may be
equipped with one or more of the following wireless devices:
Wireless local area network (WLAN) device—Connects the computer to wireless local area
networks (commonly referred to as Wi-Fi networks, wireless LANs, or WLANs) in corporate
offices, your home, and public places such as airports, restaurants, coffee shops, hotels, and
universities. In a WLAN, the mobile wireless device in your computer communicates with a
wireless router or a wireless access point.
Bluetooth device (select models only)—Creates a personal area network (PAN) to connect to
other Bluetooth-enabled devices such as computers, phones, printers, headsets, speakers, and
cameras. In a PAN, each device communicates directly with other devices, and devices must be
relatively close together—typically within 10 meters (approximately 33 feet) of each other.
For more information about wireless technology, see the information and website links provided in
Help and Support. From the Start screen, type help, and then select Help and Support.
Using the wireless controls
You can control the wireless devices in your computer using these features:
Wireless button, wireless switch, or wireless key (referred to in this chapter as the wireless
button) (select models only)
Operating system controls
Using the wireless button
The computer has a wireless button, one or more wireless devices, and one or two wireless lights,
depending on the model. All of the wireless devices on your computer are enabled at the factory, so
the wireless light is on (white) when you turn on the computer.
The wireless light indicates the overall power state of your wireless devices, not the status of

Using a WLAN
With a WLAN device, you can access a wireless local area network (WLAN), which is composed of
other computers and accessories that are linked by a wireless router or a wireless access point.
NOTE: The terms wireless router and wireless access point are often used interchangeably.
A large-scale WLAN, such as a corporate or public WLAN, typically uses wireless access points
that can accommodate a large number of computers and accessories and can separate critical
network functions.
A home or small office WLAN typically uses a wireless router, which allows several wireless and
wired computers to share an Internet connection, a printer, and files without requiring additional
pieces of hardware or software.
To use the WLAN device in your computer, you must connect to a WLAN infrastructure (provided
through a service provider or a public or corporate network).
Using an Internet service provider
When you are setting up Internet access in your home, you must establish an account with an
Internet service provider (ISP). To purchase Internet service and a modem, contact a local ISP. The
ISP will help set up the modem, install a network cable to connect your wireless router to the modem,
and test the Internet service.
NOTE: Your ISP will give you a user ID and a password to use for Internet access. Record this
information and store it in a safe place.
Setting up a WLAN
To set up a WLAN and connect to the Internet, you need the following equipment:
A broadband modem (either DSL or cable) (1) and high-speed Internet service purchased from
an Internet service provider
A wireless router (2) (purchased separately)
A wireless computer (3)
NOTE: Some modems have a built-in wireless router. Check with your ISP to determine what type
of modem you have.
The illustration below shows an example of a wireless network installation that is connected to the
Internet.
As your network grows, additional wireless and wired computers can be connected to the network to
access the Internet.
For help in setting up your WLAN, see the information provided by your router manufacturer or your
ISP.
18 Chapter 3 Connecting to a network
DRAFT
Configuring a wireless router
For help in configuring a wireless router, see the information provided by your router manufacturer or
your ISP.
NOTE: It is recommended that you initially connect your new wireless computer to the router by
using the network cable provided with the router. When the computer successfully connects to the
Internet, disconnect the cable, and access the Internet through your wireless network.
Protecting your WLAN
When you set up a WLAN or access an existing WLAN, always enable security features to protect
your network from unauthorized access. WLANs in public areas (hotspots) like coffee shops and
airports may not provide any security. If you are concerned about the security of your computer when
connected to a hotspot, limit your network activities to email that is not confidential and basic Internet
surfing.
Wireless radio signals travel outside the network, so other WLAN devices can pick up unprotected
signals. Take the following precautions to protect your WLAN:
Use a firewall.
A firewall checks information and requests that are sent to your network, and discards any
suspicious items. Firewalls are available in both software and hardware. Some networks use a
combination of both types.
Use wireless encryption.
Wireless encryption uses security settings to encrypt and decrypt data that is transmitted over
the network. For more information, from the Start screen, type help, and then select Help and
Support.
Connecting to a WLAN
To connect to the WLAN, follow these steps:
1. Be sure that the WLAN device is on. If the device is on, the wireless light is white. If the wireless
light is off, press the wireless button.
NOTE: On some models, the wireless light is amber when all wireless devices are off.
2. From the Start screen, point to the far-right upper or lower corner to display the charms.
3. Select Settings, and then click the network status icon.
4. Select your WLAN from the list.
5. Click Connect.
If the WLAN is a security-enabled WLAN, you are prompted to enter a security code. Type the
code, and then click Sign in to complete the connection.
NOTE: If no WLANs are listed, you may be out of range of a wireless router or access point.
NOTE: If you do not see the WLAN you want to connect to, from the Windows desktop, right-
click the network status icon, and then select Open Network and Sharing Center. Click Set up
a new connection or network. A list of options is revealed, allowing you to manually search for
and connect to a network or to create a new network connection.
6. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the connection.
Connecting to a wireless network 19
DRAFT
After the connection is made, place the mouse pointer over the network status icon in the notification
area, at the far right of the taskbar, to verify the name and status of the connection.
NOTE: The functional range (how far your wireless signals travel) depends on WLAN
implementation, router manufacturer, and interference from other electronic devices or structural
barriers such as walls and floors.
Using Bluetooth wireless devices (select models only)
A Bluetooth device provides short-range wireless communications that replace the physical cable
connections that traditionally link electronic devices such as the following:
Computers (desktop, notebook, PDA)
Phones (cellular, cordless, smart phone)
Imaging devices (printer, camera)
Audio devices (headset, speakers)
Mouse
Bluetooth devices provide peer-to-peer capability that allows you to set up a PAN of Bluetooth
devices. For information about configuring and using Bluetooth devices, see the Bluetooth software

10 Backing up, restoring, and recovering
This chapter provides information about the following processes:
Creating recovery media and backups
Restoring and recovering your system
Creating recovery media and backups
1. After you successfully set up the computer, create HP Recovery media. This step creates a
backup of the HP Recovery partition on the computer. The backup can be used to reinstall the
original operating system in cases where the hard drive is corrupted or has been replaced.
HP Recovery media you create will provide the following recovery options:
System Recovery—Reinstalls the original operating system and the programs that were
installed at the factory.
Minimized Image Recovery—Reinstalls the operating system and all hardware-related
drivers and software, but not other software applications.
Factory Reset—Restores the computer to its original factory state by deleting all
information from the hard drive and re-creating the partitions. Then it reinstalls the
operating system and the software that was installed at the factory.
See Creating HP Recovery media.
2. Use the Windows tools to create system restore points and create backups of personal
information. For more information and steps, see Help and Support. From the Start screen, type
help, and then select Help and Support.
Creating HP Recovery media
HP Recovery Manager is a software program that offers a way to create recovery media after you
successfully set up the computer. HP Recovery media can be used to perform system recovery if the
hard drive becomes corrupted. System recovery reinstalls the original operating system and the
software programs installed at the factory, and then configures the settings for the programs. HP
Recovery media can also be used to customize the system or restore the factory image if you replace
the hard drive.
Only one set of HP Recovery media can be created. Handle these recovery tools carefully, and
keep them in a safe place.
HP Recovery Manager examines the computer and determines the required storage capacity for
the blank USB flash drive or the number of blank DVD discs that will be required.
To create recovery discs, your computer must have an optical drive with DVD writer capability,
and you must use only high-quality blank DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-R DL, or DVD+R DL discs. Do
not use rewritable discs such as CD±RW, DVD±RW, double-layer DVD±RW, or BD-RE
(rewritable Blu-ray) discs; they are not compatible with HP Recovery Manager software. Or
instead you can use a high-quality blank USB flash drive.
If your computer does not include an integrated optical drive with DVD writer capability, but you
would like to create DVD recovery media, you can use an external optical drive (purchased
Creating recovery media and backups 71
DRAFT
separately) to create recovery discs, or you can obtain recovery discs from support. See the
Worldwide Telephone Numbers booklet included with the computer. You can also find contact
information from the HP website. Go to http://www.hp.com/support, select your country or
region, and follow the on-screen instructions. If you use an external optical drive, it must be
connected directly to a USB port on the computer; the drive cannot be connected to a USB port
on an external device, such as a USB hub.
Be sure that the computer is connected to AC power before you begin creating the recovery
media.
The creation process can take up to an hour or more. Do not interrupt the creation process.
If necessary, you can exit the program before you have finished creating all of the recovery
DVDs. HP Recovery Manager will finish burning the current DVD. The next time you start HP
Recovery Manager, you will be prompted to continue, and the remaining discs will be burned.
To create HP Recovery media:
IMPORTANT: For tablets, connect to the keyboard dock before beginning these steps (select
models only).
1. From the Start screen, type recovery, and then select HP Recovery Manager.
2. Select Recovery Media Creation, and then follow the on-screen instructions.
If you ever need to recover the system, see Recovering using HP Recovery Manager.
Restore and recovery
There are several options for recovering your system. Choose the method that best matches your
situation and level of expertise:
Windows offers several options for restoring from backup, refreshing the computer, and resetting
the computer to its original state. For more information and steps, see Help and Support. From
the Start screen, type help, and then select Help and Support.
If you need to correct a problem with a preinstalled application or driver, use the Drivers and
Applications Reinstall option of HP Recovery Manager to reinstall the individual application or

12 Electrostatic Discharge
Electrostatic discharge is the release of static electricity when two objects come into contact—for
example, the shock you receive when you walk across the carpet and touch a metal door knob.
A discharge of static electricity from fingers or other electrostatic conductors may damage electronic
components. To prevent damage to the computer, damage to a drive, or loss of information, observe
these precautions:
If removal or installation instructions direct you to unplug the computer, first be sure that it is
properly grounded, and then remove the cover.
Keep components in their electrostatic-safe containers until you are ready to install them.
Avoid touching pins, leads, and circuitry. Handle electronic components as little as possible.
Use nonmagnetic tools.
Before handling components, discharge static electricity by touching an unpainted metal surface
of the component.
If you remove a component, place it in an electrostatic-safe container.
If you need more information about static electricity or assistance with component removal or
installation, contact support.
