Question about Panasonic Toughbook 72 Notebook

1 Answer

I recently bought an old CF-25 Panasonic Toughbook for my son.

Then I realized that it only has 4GG HDD, and am hoping to put larger HDD and possibly a little more to speed it up. It was cheap and came with Windows 98. What is possible that you would suggest to upgrade this old but kinda nice laptop?

    Swapped out hdd cf-52 nothing happening

    When you swapped out the Hard Disk Drive
    of the Panasonic Toughbook CF52 it is very
    importatnt that you did not "hot" swap the HDD
    but that you turned off the unit with a full shutdown
    and unplugged it as well.

    Once you removed the Hard Disk Drive (HDD)
    I am assuming that you replaced the drive with
    another drive that had a proper operating system
    already installed. If not, then of course nothing
    happened since you replaced the HDD with a blank
    or unformatted HDD.

    One way to verify if the replacement Hard Drive
    is recognized by the Toughbook is to go into
    the BIOS by pressing the F2 function key and
    checking the size or capacity of the replacement
    Hard Disk Drive. If it shows the proper value,
    then the HDD is recognized at the Hardware Level.

    If it shows HDD as None or Zero then the replacement
    HDD is NOT recognized and you have to try a different
    drive which is functional.

    Good Luck!

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


    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.

    Go to Crucial or Viking or any memory company on the web, type in your model number, and they will provide the proper memory module advice. You can remove the cover from the HDD on the bottom of the toughbook, and inspect the current disk to determine if it is SATA or not. I would check the manufacturer and series (model) and see if they had a larger in the same series. It will be labeled if it is SATA or EIDE, and you would get the same in a larger internal size.
