Question about Computers & Internet
We have a Panasonic Toughbook CF-31 that has the versapad. We want to change it that when you tap on the pad it doesnt simulate a click. I can change the settings that it won't click when you tap but when you restart the computer the settings change back to clicking when you tap. When I check the settings that I switched they show they are the same as I changed them to but the function doesnt follow whats clicked. Is there a fix for this?

1) Remove the ram module you installed (with laptop turned off) then power on laptop.
If it laptop powers one, then either A)Your new ram chip is not compatible with your laptop (read your owners manual for the "exact" type of ram you need.) or search eBay "panasonic cf-18 ram" for example. 1 Gig ram was $32 when I just checked...
If laptop does NOT power on after you remove the new chip, then you may have accidentally fried your motherboard when installing it. Not likely, but possible. Human body can generate a lot of static electricity, if you do not "ground" yourself you can easily fry an electronic component / motherboard, etc... see this link below. If this is the case have a technician give you an estimate on repair.
Good luck !

SOURCE: panasonic toughbook model number
Download drivers for both if you are unsure, one way to tell if its a MK1, look underneath the laptop at the model number, if is says neither MK's its MK1 as it will say if its a MK2.
Saying that the drivers should work on both machine models
Good luck and kind regards

Sue, it's not the inverter board. People who don't really know much
about laptops will often diagnose them incorrectly, especially computer
repair shops. The problem you're experiencing is most likely related
to your motherboard. Unfortunately the most expensive part to replace on most laptops.
Your best bet is to probably just have any important files from the laptop extracted by a repair shop and then selling the computer "As-IS" on ebay. Or you could try another local repair shop to take a look at it. I wouldn't pay any money for a diagnostics since it would take most techs about 5-10 minutes to confirm what I just typed.
