Question about Panasonic Toughbook CF-73 Notebook

1 Answer

Battery I bot a lap top from a garage sale. It is a Panasonic CF-73. The problem I am having is that it the computer only seems to power up when I have the ac charger adapter plugged in. Does this mean that i have bad battery or are their maybe some settings that are set to be like that?any help would be greatly appreciated..also if it is a bad battery..... and if it is i will of coarse want to replace it... do they even sell replacement batteries for this lap top. i know thatthis model was discontinued so does that mean that the batteries for it are discontinued too? Help! Thanks. Kim joeysspots83@yahoo.com

If it runs off of the AC adapter and not the battery, then the battery is about 99% chance the problem. The batteries are found easily on ebay for a reasonable amount. also to reassure you that the battery is the problem do as follows:

Goto the Control panel in the start menu,

In control panel, open Power options

In Power Options click the tab "Power Meter" and see the charge the battery is holding, if it states 100% and you unplug it and it turns off then the battery is dead.

Automatic start of a toughbook CF73


To my understanding I have never seen this done, I have checked a lot of bios settings in different computers over the years, and I have never come across an option that offers auto start.

Hi, does the touch screen have drivers for windows 7 for toughbook cf-73


It seems Panasonic discontinued the CF-73 and there is no updated drivers to support Windows 7. Sorry.

The panasonicCF-73 tough book I am using has 256 RAM, can I increase this to 1gb or 2gb? Thank you,


According to: http://www.upgradecomputermemory.com/ram.cfm/memory/P/Panasonic/Toughbook-Series/Toughbook-73-CF-73

your CF-73 has "integrated" 256MB of memory, and supports a maximum addition of 1GB of RAM.
The web-site says about $33, which _definitely_ is a good investment to speed-up your computer.

Had to reformat my panasonic cf-73 without OEM disks and now I can't get my touch screen to work


if you dont have the software - dont do it.

May I suggest instead, you do a cleanup and defrag of your computer.

If you need help with this ... let me know.

Im not telling you how to do it at this point because you didnt ask.

Cf 73 touchscreenn


Go to the Panasonic site, go to their support pages and use the serial number from the laptop to find the original configuration. The touch screen drivers will be there, just download and install. Keep a copy of the drivers on cd for the next time your computer is reformatted or crashes.
