You could attempt to boot to safe mode, and run the Start> System Recovery > PC Recovery Application.

Otherwise, I'd boot to safe mode, select start, run, type: msconfig, select the startup tab, remove any unwanted startup items that may be causing the system crash.

Hope this helps.

Is there a way to recover the Panasonic Tablet PC back to factory default settings, without the CD? I don't have the CD so can you please tell me how to recover the PC?


Yes : boot from the recovery partition (you'll need to give the boot process some more time to keep the choice of the bboting partition displayed :
Windows+Pause, Advanced, 3rd "Parameters" button, change to 10 seconds.)

Is there any chance the video output is switched to feed the rear VGA connector? ie the screen is black due the video being routed away from the screen. Try hitting F5 key.
Can you hit the Delete key to try and enter the bIOS screen? (it may be another key such as F1 or F2. See your Toughbook manual)
Can you have someone make you a bootable USB thumb drive and try booting up with that?
Its also possible that the hard drive has failed, but usually the BIOS POST check will initiate and indicate a failed hard drive or bad RAM etc
Can you remove the 2.5 inch hard drive? Usually its accessible under a removable panel under the laptop.
Feel free to ask more questions.
Cheers,
Steve

You will, at the very least, need to have the screen and screen cover replaced. If the hinges also damaged the bottom case to which they are attached, then it too will need replacing.

If you can't get it repaired locally, let me know.

I think your actually having issues getting it to run on the toughbook because it uses different drivers for everything from the Acer computer. If you press F8 while booting up you can choose the option "Disable automatic restart (of system errors or something)". Then when the machine boots up you should get a blue screen giving you an error code like "IRQ_EQUAL_TO_OR_GREATER_X Error: 0x0000005f. You could try to see what the message is trying to tell you to resolve it but the error msg would likely point to the driver that its trying to load that's most likely different from the toughbook you have. I'd suggest getting an external cdrom/dvdrom and install windows from a disc onto the toughbooks hd while its in that toughbook machine.

HOW TO INSTALL WINDONS XP PRO ON TOUGHBOOK CF-18


XP can not be installed from usb as the bios does not enable it. Plug the ide hard drive into an older desktop system and install from boot on cd. Once all files are copied over then you need to copy the i386 folder over from the cd. Reinstall the hard drive into the toughbook and carry on the install from there.
