View Full Version : [all variants] Keys / buttons on serval performance

July 19th, 2008, 02:25 AM
I just received my serval performance laptop in the mail. How do I find out what the two buttons are on the far left hand side? One has a power cord icon next to it, the other a USB symbol. I've pushed the keys but haven't seen really what they do, yet.

Thanks for the help.

Those are Power USB and Q-Charging Buttons.

This might shed some light about what they are for:

Kind of. It did remind me to dig through the box for the cd, but even the manual on it only said it was for usb power and q-charge. It didn't say how to use them, or how to tell if they work. It does look like the left-side usb ports are the fancy ones that give out power.

Ah, well. I'm not sure if I'd use them, anyway.

This may not be the direct response to the previous conversation, but I just got the Serval today (which is 2nd System76 machine next to Star3 netbook). Finding a power button took me more than 5 minutes...
