Help , Got my First Laptop

[ Edited ]

Hello Sorry for being NOVICE . i got my first laptop today from karket . got the lenovo s10-3t  in India

Serial Number - xxxxxxxxxxx

 

i have never used a laptop before in my life . i have just taken it out of the box . dont even know how to ON it .

 

what i am interested is that my manufacturing date printed on box is 25th april 2010 . i want to update all drivers ( audio / lan / windows OS ) everything before using .)

 

How do i do that ? i have a cable internet ( lan rj45 attached to my desktop computer ) . i can attach that wire to my laptop and have internet going . But only if i find how to ON it . and then how do i update the internal software and everything to make it BUG-FREE

 

Any Help Appreciated . Please be aware i dont know anything about IT and jargons , so simple language !

 

ALl i want it to make my laptop error free or bug - free so that it doesnt freeze or hang or give heating or battery problems and runs smoothly with good audio

Veriface is a software who recognice faces. You can associate a face to a Windows users. This is helpfull if you want to start session puttin your face in front of your laptop.

 

 

You can start the webcam using the Fn + key assined combination.

 

Read the manual.

Hi,

there is no need to install a cam driver... its included in the installed os..

 

use this in windows partitionwizard or partition-tool ...
