Question about Panasonic CF-25 166MMX Notebook

3 Answers

Blank screen Hi, MY Panasonic CF25 came up with some sort of message on Windows which was too fast for me to read. Since then when I switch on I get to the Windows test card fine, and then the screen goes black. I can still hear Windows loading and the Windows' jingle when it's finished loading. Is there any way to fix it? Marie

    My lcd screen went blank, however, there is a very faint image of the desktop in the darkness. I tried the function//f3 key & the function/brightness key -- to no avail. My graphics card appears to be ok because I can and am now using an external monitor. Could this be a driver problem? My gateway notebook 450sx4 lcd display is an active matrix 15" XGA.

    Well at first my computer screen will get a lot of colored pixels all over and then if I just let it sit there, the screen will go blank, but the computer is still runnig. I dont know if this has somethin to do with my computer getting to hot or is it just the monitor.

How the hell was he able to see the screen to make changes to his display setting, and since when can you run XP on a P166 with a max of 64Mb RAM? Further more Panasonic won't let him register a CF-25 on their support site, it is too old and the on-line reg' won't put the product in their bin, which is required for support. You are truly an idiot.

Sounds like your video adapter settings have been wedged. If you are running Windows XP Service Pack 2, you can use the following steps. 1) Boot the laptop into safe mode. Boot into safe mode with networking support if possible. This can be done by tapping the F8 key as the computer first turns on. 2) Once you are at the Desktop, right click on My Computer and select Manage. 3) In the window that appears, select Device Manager from the menu on the left. 4) Find Display Adapters on the right and click the plus sign. This will list the video adapter that you have. NOTE: WRITE this down EXACTLY. You may need to go and get drivers for this. Seeing this is an older model, I doubt you'll need it, but better to be safe then sorry. 5) Go to your manufacturers support web site and download these drivers. You may not need them, but better to be safe then sorry. NOTE: Skip step 5 if you did not boot with network support or cannot get to the Internet. This can be done from normal mode. 6) Right click on the display adpater and choose un-install. Hit OK on the window that appears and reboot the machine when the process is done. 7) The machine will take longer than usual to boot, as Windows XP is re-discovering the video adapter and resetting everything to the defaults. When it is done booting, the screen may look weird since the settings are now the defaults. You can the set them to what you want by right clicking on the desktop and selecting properties. Then go to the settings tab. 8) IF it did not re-discover the video adapter (this can be confirmed through the device manager), then go ahead and install the drivers. Windows Update will most likely also have the drivers. NOTE: This process should work with Windows 2000 as well, although I was not able to test it. The only issue I can think of is that it may not auto-discover the video adapter, and you would have to manually download and install the drivers.

Iwas watching my panasonic plasma and the screen went green.

One of the "Y" buffer boards have failed. The buffer boards are located on the left side of the set looking from the back. There are two of them. One for the upper half of the screen, one for the lower. Disconnect and replace the one that had the blank portion of the screen.

No input signal

Check connections, Hertz rate, and settings (if you can read them). Otherwise, it may be time to whip out the cash and get a new monitor and/or computer.

My first guess would be that the projector can't sync to the DVD player after the reading stage. If correct, you should be able to change the settings on the output of the DVD player.

Some DVD recorders don't like certain types of media. Does this happen with all blank dvd+rw disks or just with that specific brand? If it's that brand then you should just use a different one.
