Itís time to clean off my workbench again... My wife keeps telling me to get rid of all these extra computer parts, so, my loss is your gain.

Most of these are working pulls from good computers, and have been tested and well cared for, unless otherwise stated.

    Introduction: Dell Latitude CPi A-Series System User's Guide

    Introduction: Dell Latitude CPi A-Series System User's Guide


    The Dell Latitude CPi A-Series portable computer is an expandable multimedia system designed around an Intel microprocessor with Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) technology. This chapter describes the major hardware and software features of your computer.

    Hardware Features

    Your Dell computer has the following features:

    • Full multimedia capability through the following standard features:
      • A 12.1-inch super video graphics array (SVGA), thin film transistor (TFT), 800 x 600 active-matrix color display or a 13.3-inch extended graphics array (XGA), TFT 1024 x 768 active-matrix color display.
      • A CD-ROM drive that can be used in the modular bay. When you unpack your computer, look for the CD-ROM drive in the accessories box of the shipping carton.
      • 256-bit hardware-accelerated video support, with 2.5 megabytes (MB) of video memory.
      • Support for a zoomed video (ZV)  PC Card in the upper PC Card connector.
      • Software wavetable support, Sound Blaster emulation
      • Three audio jacks for connecting external speakers or headphones, a microphone, and a record/playback device to your computer.
      • Built-in microphone and two stereo speakers.
      • Accelerated graphics port (AGP) architecture that increases system performance, particularly video performance.
    • A modular bay that supports a CD-ROM drive, diskette drive, second battery or hard-disk drive, or LS-120 drive module. To make the computer as light as possible when you travel, use the special travel module in the modular bay.
      NOTE: Your computer was shipped with a diskette drive in the modular bay. For information on removing the diskette drive and installing a different device in the  bay, see Modular Bay.
    • A 64-MB synchronous dynamic random-access memory (SDRAM) module is standard. Memory can be increased up to 256 MB by installing combinations of 32-, 64-, or 128-MB SDRAM modules in the two memory module sockets on the system board.
    • Two power conservation modes—suspend mode and suspend-to-disk mode—that help you conserve battery power. If the batteries run out of power, suspend-to-disk mode prevents data loss by copying all system data to the hard-disk drive and turning off the computer.
    • Connectors for two 3.3-volt (V) or 5-V PC Cards. The upper PC Card connector supports ZV PC Cards.
      NOTE: The PC Card controller supports the CardBus standard for 32-bit data transfer on the PC Card.
    • Hardware and software support for the Dell Latitude C/Port Advanced Port Replicator (C/Port APR) and the Dell Latitude C/Dock Expansion Station.
    • A touch-pad pointing device positioned for both left- and right-handed users. The left and right touch-pad buttons mimic mouse buttons; you can also perform many pointing functions by tapping the touch pad itself. Click-and-drag buttonless functions are supported.
    • A lithium ion battery in the battery bay, with support for a second battery in the modular bay. ExpressCharge technology charges a single battery in approximately 1 hour (when the computer is off or in suspend mode).
      NOTE: The batteries are designed to work only with Dell Latitude CP Series portable computers. Do not use the batteries with other computers, and do not use batteries from other computers with the Dell Latitude CP Series.
    • WARNING: Do not puncture or incinerate the battery. When your battery no longer holds a charge, call your local waste disposal agency or environmental agency for advice on disposing  the computer's lithium ion battery. The lithium ion technology used in the battery is significantly less hazardous to the environment than the lithium metal technology used in some other batteries (such as watch batteries).
    • High-performance parallel and serial ports and a multipurpose Personal System/2 (PS/2) connector for attaching external devices. There is also a monitor connector for attaching an external monitor to your computer and a Universal Serial Bus (USB) connector that supports stand-alone and hub devices.
    • An infrared port that permits file transfer without using cable connections. The port is compatible with the Infrared Data Association (IrDA) Standard 1.1 (Fast IR) and Standard 1.0 (Slow IR) for use with external devices.
    • An automatic thermal management system that uses a variable-speed fan and microprocessor speed changes to keep the system running at the optimum temperature.

    The following software is included with your Dell computer system:

    • The Microsoft Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows NT 4.0 or higher operating system is installed on your hard-disk drive. For more information, see your operating system documentation.
    • The System Setup program lets you view and change the system configuration. For more information, see Using the System Setup Program.
    • The Program Diskette Maker allows you to create program diskette sets of software that Dell installed on your computer's hard-disk drive.
    • Dell Diagnostics for evaluating the computer's components and devices.
    NOTE: If Dell did not install an operating system on your hard-disk drive, the drivers, system utilities, and diagnostics are available separately from Dell. To order, see Getting Help for the appropriate telephone number in your location.

    Before turning on your computer for the first time, read all license agreements that came with your computer. When you turn on your computer for the first time, if you agree with the license terms, indicate your acceptance by typing y when prompted by the computer. Then complete the installation of your operating system.

    Available Options

    As your computing requirements change, you can extend your computer's capabilities with the C/Port APR or C/Dock Expansion Station. You can also install a hard-disk drive of larger capacity, increase system memory, and add functionality with PC Cards. Dell also offers additional modules that you can install in the modular bay, including a second hard-disk drive, CD-ROM drives, and LS-120 drive modules.

    • C/Port APR and C/Dock Expansion Station
