The drive is slotted into the left hand front of the laptop. If you turn the laptop upside down you will see 2 slider buttons. 1 is used to remove the battery and he other is to remove the hard disk. You push and hold the button and slide the hard disk out.

Run hard drive diagnostics: http://www.tacktech.com/display.cfm?ttid=287 (or http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic28744.html)
Make sure, you select tool, which is appropriate for the brand of your hard drive.
Depending on the program, itll create bootable floppy, or bootable CD.
If downloaded file is of .iso type, use ImgBurn: http://www.imgburn.com/ to burn .iso file to a CD (select "Write image file to disc" option), and make the CD bootable.


You could also try a Live Linux like Knoppix Live from here:- http://www.knoppix.net/get.php,
download the Free ISO using a Torrent, burn it to a CD then run that it will load into Ram and then ith all the software in the CD you can examine the hard drive


hope this helps

To reinstall your operating system, you must have a CD drive in your multimedia pocket.

Note: CF-51 (Mk2) and CF-51 (Mk3) can also boot to an external Panasonic USB CD drive.

When the laptop is first powered on, the Panasonic name appears in white lettering with the phrase 'Press F2 to enter Setup' directly below it. When this phrase appears on the screen, immediately press F2 on your keyboard. Put the Panasonic recovery CD in your drive and use the arrow keys to move to the boot tab. Change the order of boot so the CD drive boots first. To do this, highlight the CD drive and press F6 until CD drive is the No. 1 listing. Press F10 to save your changes, exit and follow the instructions when your CD starts running.

My CF-51 will not boot. I get two beeps when I power on, but that is it.


the beeps are post during post the very first work is done by the ram,all the memory in the ram is first transferred to the hard disk,and remains active untill turned off.
make sure that your RAM is securely seated
try replacing all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA the ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?
hope this helps

Panasonic CF-51 computer getting stuck, and making clicking noise. Have to turn off manually and restart.


Hi,

Listen carefully to the HDD bay of the CF-51, If the "Clicking" sound is coming from that area then it is possible that the hard drive is failing causing the whole laptop to freeze up.

If that is the case then you're looking at a new or replacement hard drive.

Panasonic CF-51,s are becoming common on Ebay but most do not have hard drives or caddies installed.The caddies cost more than the computers & are almost impossible to find for sale.Is it possible to...


I found this via pendrivelinux.com:

So try that out. I just got a toughbook cf-51 and will try it soon myself. Mine came with an XP reg code so maybe that can run from a virtual machine inside of linux.
My advice is to resist the urge to drop yours onto cement from a couple of feet. Not quite that tough.
The hard drive caddy is "the catch", for certain.
Too lazy to look into what the hdd connector is for that, maybe there's a cable or converter somewhere.

I have a panasonic cf-51 with 40-gig drive. I want to upgrade the drive with something at least 160 gig. Do you have any drives available? What spec should I be looking for?


Basically, any EIDE interface hard drive will work, if you buy a new drive, just make sure to use the included software to boot the laptop up with in order to initialize the new disc and make it useable on your system.

Sometimes CF-51 Toughbook doesn't even make it through BIOS


It is probably worn Hard Drive Caddy connections that are causing the problem. You could try buying a replacement caddy on e-Bay. I had the same problem and this cured it.
