The old Panasonic Toughbooks bios password can by bypassed via a hardware key and a bios update file. The specific steps are an exercise in google-fu with phrases like (model) bios password unlocking. Or, call Panasonic support directly. If you have valid proof of ownership they'll help you out, even if you're not the original owner. Quite a lot of these are showing up because of Capital Asset Depreciation schedules.
Most Panasonic ToughBook Models do NOT have a
built-in microphone. There is usually a microphone jack
located on the left side (The headphone jack is on the right).
On some PC's this is a "pink" connector. Headphone is green.
Simply purchase an external microphone even at a local
"Dollar" Store and it will work. You do not need to spend
$30-$40 on a fancy microphone, the cheap one works just as well.

Panasonic Toughbooks before 2009 did not have a
WEBCAM installed, it was not even an option.
Since there was no webcam, there was no built-in
microphone. However, all Panasonic Toughbooks
built since the year 2001 have both a headphone or
speaker OUT as well as a MICROPHONE IN port.
So simply pickup an external microphone at your
local dollar store and this will solve your problem.

I had a similar situation with my CF-53. Oddly, the speakers would not work, but headphones plugged into the port on the front of the laptop would. Could you verify that you get audio through the headphone port, please?
I have a Panasonic viera 32in lcd hd tv. I'm trying to hook up headphones but there's is no apparent audio output jacks. But there's is only one digtal output jack! is this the jack ? and if it is, what cables do I need to make the headphones work? or am I forced into by an amplifier
