My keyboard does not work properly
❑ If using the keyboard delivered with your computer, check that it is plugged into the PS/2 keyboard port
on the back of the unit.
❑ PS/2 connections are not ’plug and play’, which means that if you connect the PS/2 keyboard after
starting your computer, it does not work. Shut down the computer and connect the keyboard before
restarting the system.
I cannot use digital (DV) devices. The message 'DV equipment seems to be disconnected or turned off'
❑ Check that the DV device is turned on and that the cables are properly connected.
❑ If you are using multiple i.LINK™ devices, the combination of the connected devices may cause unstable
operation. If this is the case, turn off all connected devices and disconnect unused devices. Check the
connection and then turn on the power again.
