I have a Panasonic Toughbook CF-51. It fell off

I have a Panasonic Toughbook CF-51. It fell off the couch & now it begins to boot up and within 30 seconds shuts down. I've been told it needs an inverter board, but can't find one anywhere online. Anyone familiar with this issue? Thanks for any help. Sue, FL

How do I reset the bios Password on a Panasonic Cf-51


This method may help;
1) Locate and remove the RTC battery
2) locate and remove the main battery and unplug power supply.
3) depress the power button for 30-60 seconds.
you do not have to solder anything to the board if there are posts ic 61,63 on MAIN PCB then just put a jumper across them while you power up. if its just 2 SMD pads just use a needle probe to arc the connection.

Irql not less or equal blue sreen cf-51


reformatting the disk / restore computer back to company settings...is only the resolution for this...

To reinstall your operating system, you must have a CD drive in your multimedia pocket.

Note: CF-51 (Mk2) and CF-51 (Mk3) can also boot to an external Panasonic USB CD drive.

When the laptop is first powered on, the Panasonic name appears in white lettering with the phrase 'Press F2 to enter Setup' directly below it. When this phrase appears on the screen, immediately press F2 on your keyboard. Put the Panasonic recovery CD in your drive and use the arrow keys to move to the boot tab. Change the order of boot so the CD drive boots first. To do this, highlight the CD drive and press F6 until CD drive is the No. 1 listing. Press F10 to save your changes, exit and follow the instructions when your CD starts running.

Panasonic Toughbook CF-51 shutting down


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.
