White screen I recently purchased a toughbook cf-t2 which boots to a white screen. An external display works fine, but when I toggle through display modes the internal display stays white, even when set to external only. Any help is appreciated

Re: white screen

White screen usually means the display itself (not the inverter, but the panel) has gone bad.Could go in and check the ribbon cable connection to the mainboard and see what happens. More than likely you need to replace the panel. Sorry.

Put panasonic cf 29 into safe mode

On ALL Panasonic Toughbooks you can
boot into safe mode as follows:

Make sure the Toughbook is OFF.

Power on the Toughbook and immediately
start to press repeatedly the "F8" function key
which is usually located above the number 7 key.

You only have 2-3 seconds to do this and this
will only work in Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7.

A "text-only" screen will come up. You can then
choose SAFE MODE or if you also need to
connect to the internet choose:
Safe Mode with Networking.

Use the UP or Down Arrows to highlight the
selected option and then press Enter.

That is it.

Good Luck!

My CF-51 monitor goes off intermittantly. When I switch to an external monitor, it will toggle on and off for awhile then shut off again. It hasn't worked at all for 2 weeks then yesterday it worked all...

The fact that this happens on an external monitor means it's the motherboard. I'd look around on eBay for a replacement unless your unit is under warranty.
Hope this helps! If so please give a rating!

Panasonic cf-50 laptop in Iraq

There are a few possibilities here... It sounds like a Graphics Card problem. It may well be an issue on a certain resolution mode. Try changing the modes in windows control panel to see if you can replicate the problem. If you cant then it will likely be the Bios that needs an upgrade (Flash)
There is also a small chance that the LCD Cable needs to be reseated. One other tip is to plug in an external monitor and then check to see if that happens on the external monitor. If it only happens on the LCD then there wont be an issue with the graphics card and then leans towards a LCD Screen or cable problem. More diagnostics at:
