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.


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.

I WANT TO CHANGE MY HDD 80GB AND 512 MB RAM INSTEAD OF 6GM AND 128 MB RAM IN PANASONIC MODEL NO. IS : CF-27EJ6K3EE SERIAL NO. IS : 0 JYAA 65627 IMEI NO. IS : 500063080856270


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.

PANASONIC CF-25


Just get a basic 56k modem card with driver, get it working (by properly installing the driver) and you have dial up. Or get a network card with an RJ-45 port with software driver, install/configure it and hook it up to your dsl modem or networking hub. Don't expect too much though, CF-25's were generally 100-120 mhz Pentiums. Not really what I would use for the internet. Too slow for an antivirus program these days. Most computers get infected sooner or later with no protection and then you're trying to fix that. A pentium 3 would be a much better laptop for internet.

The BIOS may not support the larger drive at all; I suggest you look for a Toughbook forum and repost there and check Panasonic's site for a manual download and possibly a BIOS upgrade if the unit is equipped with a flash BIOS.
