  1. Laptop Orientation 2012 Welcome Please do not open anything yet

  2. Laptop Orientation Learning Goals • How to take care of your laptop • Where to go to have your laptop worked on • How to keep your data safe and your computer running smoothly • Using Windows 7 with the RHIT network • Accessing the Internet and Email • Other services you may need in your first week at RHIT • How to be an effective system administrator

  3. The Help Desk • Help Desk is your first point of contact for computing, networking, and telephone problems • First floor of Crapo Hall, 8am-5pm Monday-Friday • helpdesk@rose-hulman.edu, • (https://secure.rose-hulman.edu/support/) • Phone at x8989 (from off-campus: 877-8989) • Most laptop repairs are completed in 3-4 hours • Loaner laptops are available when repairs take longer • Bring your laptop to the Help Desk for software problems or hardware repairs • For example, a bad hard drive can’t be fixed over the phone or via email • Your laptop has 4-year warranty; covered repairs are free • Batteries only have a 1 year warranty • This warranty starts when the battery was made, not when you receive it.

  4. Document Management • Save all of your work in the “My Documents” folder in the “Documents” library of your personal account • This will aid the Help Desk if data recovery is necessary • Organizing My Documents into subfolders is highly recommended • Examples: courses, recreation, family • You should frequently make a backup copy of your data • This can be done easily with the Backup and Restore program found in the Control Panel • Burn important files to a CD-R/W or DVD±R/W • Copy data to your network space on DFS (discussed later) • You might also consider purchasing a USB thumb drive or an external hard drive. • Ultimately, you are responsible for safeguarding your data

  5. Accounts on your Laptop • Two accounts are on your laptop • Your Personal Account • Accessed by typing your username and your password into the Windows login box • Used for everyday work and play • You will spend most of your time in this account • If you attempt Administrative activities while logged into your user account, a dialog box will ask you to authorize this by typing the .\localmgr username and password. Not typing the “.\” will give an ‘incorrect username or password’ error. • “.\” is shorthand for the name of your computer • Localmgr (Almost never log in to this account) • These are referred to as your local or laptop accounts

  6. Windows Update • Windows Update is a very important part of keeping your computer safe and up-to-date • Critical updates will be installed automatically • Microsoft updates include security and Office updates, but there may be other updates available on the Windows Update site • Automatic Windows Updates do not require localmgr access

  7. Microsoft Forefront • Helps keep your computer safe from Viruses, Trojans, and other Malware • Microsoft Forefront is scheduled to run a full virus scan daily at 2:00 AM • The time of the scan can be changed (see packet for details) • It is strongly recommended that you do not disable the scans • This will help ensure that your computer remains worm and virus-free • Malware is one of the biggest threats to your laptop’s performance, and may lead to theft of your personal information • A comprehensive guide to keeping your computer free of malware can be found in your packet

  8. What Software Comes with My Laptop? • Microsoft Windows 7 Enterprise • Microsoft Office 2010 Professional Plus • Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, Outlook, InfoPath, Publisher, One Note, SharePoint Designer, SharePoint Workspace, Lync • Academic Applications • Maple, Working Model, Logger Pro, Matlab, Solid Edge, Eclipse • Microsoft Forefront • Various network tools • SecureFX, SecureCRT, etc. • Various utility programs • WinRAR, Acrobat Reader, PDF995, etc. • You are licensed to use this software for as long as you are at Rose.

  9. Laptop Graphics Processors • The Lenovo w530 has two graphics processors • Automatically switches between them based on whether it is running on AC power or battery. • You can set the laptop to always use either processor • Screen flashes black for a second when switching between processors- don’t worry about it. • For daily uses (including watching videos, web browsing), there is no discernable difference in picture quality or speed.

  10. What Comes With My Laptop? • 170 watt AC Adapter • Network Cable • Lenovo Manuals & Lenovo Recovery CDs • ID Tag • USB Mouse

  11. Unpacking • Open the box and carefully take out the laptop • Do not pull the laptop out by the packing material as it will come off and the laptop may fall. Grasp the laptop instead. • Put packing material back in the box. • Attach the ID tag to the laptop bag • If you are missing any parts, notify someone immediately • The next slide will list what should be in your laptop box • Put the box and laptop case on the floor next to you • Save the box. It will be useful for storage • Put your Recovery CD in a safe place

  12. Verify Box & Backpack Contents • 170 watt AC Adapter • Network Cable • Lenovo Manuals & Lenovo Recovery CDs • ID Tag • USB Mouse Do not plug in or turn on your computer yet! Note that during Laptop Orientation, you will not have network access to sites outside Rose-Hulman

  22. Choosing a Password • How to choose a password: • Follow the RHIT rules • Don’t use a dictionary word as a password. Use a phrase or abbreviation • Don’t use something obvious or personal • Use a different password for your Rose-Hulman account than for any other computer or web site account • Instead of using a password, use a phrase (from a song, movie or book?). For example, “Live long & prosper” was a strong passphrase (until we mentioned it here) due to its length and character mix • If you forget your password, visit the Help Desk with your Student ID • You may not have a strong password in mind right now, so you can think up a temporary password - you may wish to make a note of it in a safe place • Replace your temporary password with your secure one in the next few days (you cannot change it within the next 24 hours) • We will now put these rules into practice as we change our network account password.
