Question about Panasonic CF-25 166MMX Notebook

2 Answers

Lost user Password on my old computer laptop Panasonic CF-25

When I run my laptop, the floppy disk or the Hard driver begins to act. But after a minute or to, it stops running and a green key appears in the middle of the screen asking for a user password. As I have forgotten my password, I cann't write down the right answer.
What can I do? Can I find a floppy disk or a CD which will be able to resolve the problem. It was said that the hidden password is put in a EEPROM. I Have a programmator which allows me to read the inside of EEPROM but, I don't know the reference of the EEPROM WHICH IS SOMEWHERE ON THE MOTHERBOARD; SO I am in a mess.
Is there a solution: I don't want to threw my laptop through the open window and I don't want to kill myself because I think I have a lot to learn about computering before using the final solution.
Best regards for an old man who doesn't want to give up!

Hi Jean Claude,

Sorry your having these issues. There is one thing you can try. When you are at the login dialog box, tap CTRL, ALT + DEL a couple of times until another dialog box appears saying Username and Password. In the username field type in administrator and leave the password field blank, press enter. Hopefully you can login and get to things thats needed. Hope this helps if not then get in touch.

Can not install os, computer says no hard disk installed


This laptop has a SATA hard drive.
The problem is that XPinstallation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on adisk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then,XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP.The FIX.Go into the BIOS anddisable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is aIDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows hasbeen installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver),then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.

I forgot the password for my Toshiba laptop is there a way i can override the password to get back on it? PS: I'm using my desktop right now.


Offline NT Password & Registry Editor (v080526 - May 2008) Petter Nordahl-Hagen has written a Windows NT/2000/XP/Vista offline password editor: http://pogostick.net/~pnh/ntpasswd/
  • This is a utility to (re)set the password of any user that has a valid (local) account on your Windows NT/2000/XP/2003/Vista system, by modifying the encrypted password in the registry's SAM file.
  • You do not need to know the old password to set a new one.
  • It works offline, that is, you have to shutdown your computer and boot off a floppy disk or CD. The boot-disk includes stuff to access NTFS partitions and scripts to glue the whole thing together.
  • Works with syskey (no need to turn it off, but you can if you have lost the key)
  • Will detect and offer to unlock locked or disabled out user accounts!
Caution: If used on users that have EFS encrypted files, and the system is XP or later service packs on W2K, all encrypted files for that user will be UNREADABLE! and cannot be recovered unless you remember the old password again! Download links:
To write these images to a floppy disk you'll need RawWrite2 which is included in the Bootdisk image download. To create the CD you just need to use your favorite CD burning program and burn the .ISO file to CD.

I am trying to recover the administrator password for my brother-in-law's toughbook cf-73. he set himself as the administrator when he got it but has since forgotten the password. I have researched this...


  • Boot your system with the Windows XP Setup CD. A screen will come up to welcome you, then you'll have an option to accept the EULA agreement, etc - proceed as required.
  • Then you will get an option to install XP afresh or "Repair your existing Windows XP installation". Choose to Repair by pressing “R”.
  • It will then start the repair process by first copying files the files needed.
  • In a few minutes, the setup will begin to restart your system and when it restarts remember NOT to press any key when it shows “Press any key to continue…”. Else setup will start from the beginning. Don’t press any key and setup will resume from where it stopped.
  • It will start doing other tasks and will show a small progress bar with a few details in left hand corner.
  • Look carefully at the details and when it shows “Installing Devices“, remember to press Shift key + F10 key in your keyboard.
  • This will open up a Command Prompt window. Now type nusrmgr.cpl and press the Enter key.
  • This opens up the “User Accounts” window which you normally get in the Control Panel.
  • Cheers!! You can now easily reset any account's password.

Where can I download a Toughbook CF-18 Tablet PC Recovery Disk, mine disappeared. rc


Finding a complete recovery disc is prooving difficult. i have found a couple of alternatives to getting a complete install on disc, but they do take a little bit more time.

if you have a copy of the windows which you wish to run your system on. which nowadays arent hard to comeby, then you can use this link as a driver and compac software restore disk
http://www.user-guides.co.uk/cddownload/Panasonic/PanasonicToughbook/Panasonic-Toughbook-CF-18-XP-Driver-CD-Recovery-Restore-Disk-108878.html

however these downloads / cd'a have to be purchased. i really wouldnt bother with it. drivers and apps for compac arent a must have and usually just do things to make the GUI fancey or easy to use. most drivers will be picked up on windows install and the rest wont be hard to track down. a standard windows install is surfice for most things and runs quicker than an install full of tosh little programs.

Need to reset the password


Make A boot disk from a working Windows 98 machine. After you make the boot disk, copy the MS 'debug' to the floppy. 
Boot the laptop from the floppy.(this might not be possible due to a setting in the BIOS.) 

Search online for MS Debug +clear CMOS 
Run the Debug program and type in the commands exactly as written. 

reboot, and you should be able to go into the BIOS by holding F2.  

That's it. 

If you can't boot from the floppy, remove the hard drive. the computer should boot from the floppy, no matter what the BIOS setting is.
