My Panasonic Toughbook T2 was shut down properly and kept for about a month. now it does not boot. Even inital BIOS check function is not performed. Though HDD movement can be heard. Checked RAM by...


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
PS have you tried the discussion forums on the Panasonic website?

NEED TO RESET BIOS PASSWORD AND / OR WINDOWS PASSWORD


To reset the BIOS password, do the following:

1: Make sure it is unplugged from the adapter.
2: Remove the battery.
3: Take out the 13 screws from the bottom cabinet and lift the cabinet about 1in up.
4: Gently unplug the speaker cable.
5: Completely remove the bottom cabinet.
6: Find the little yellow coin sized battery which is located about 2 inches from where you plug in the power adapter.
7: Unplug the coin sized yellow battery.
8: Pump the power switch a few times to discharge what little charge may be remaining in the computer.
9: Plug the coin sized battery back in.
10: Flip the computer over and plug it in to your power adapter.
11: Turn it on and start pressing F2 - the CMOS settings (including the password will have been reset.
12: Press F9 and then enter.
13: Enter the correct time/date.
14: Press F10 followed by enter and it will reboot without a "BIOS" password stored.

For a windows password recovery there are a few programs that can do the job. I personally like "ophcrack". It is freeware that you can easily find using google.

Hope that helps

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.

Toughbook CF-18 Supervisor Passwd


Toughbook CF18, CF-18
How to remove the BIOS Supervisor Password:

Open all covers and openings. Remove hard drive and battery. Remove bottom of notebook. Many many tiny screws.
Now look towards the rear of the notebook. You will see 2 plugs both have a red and black wires. The one with the much smaller wires and connector is the BIOS battery. Use a pair of needle nose pliers and remove this plug.

Leave it off for 5-15 minutes.

Leave the BIOS battery plug off. Replace the laptop's main battery. Leave the hard drive out. Turn the unit over and turn it on.
Press F2 when the screen comes up. POOF! NO PASSWORD!

Go to Security and disable the password. Save configuration. Turn off the notebook. Replace the small connector. Turn it back over and turn it back on. Press F2 and verify that there is no password. Go to Security and Disable the password again. Save the configuration.
Put the bottom back on. You're done.

NOW FOR THE BAD NEWS!!!
Your hard drive is now dead. Replace it. When a supervisor password is used it locks the hard drive to that password. There is NO WAY to recover the hard drive. It is called an ATA security password. Without the ATA password the hard drive is completely useless.

Cf-18 toughbook


The BIOS may not support the larger drive at all; I suggest you look for a Toughbook forum and repost there and check Panasonic's site for a manual download and possibly a BIOS upgrade if the unit is equipped with a flash BIOS.
