SOURCE: Panasonic CF-51 Toughbook Fn keys don't work at all

The following website contains the needed drivers:

https://eww.pavc.panasonic.co.jp/pc/cgi-bin/itn/toughbook/dl01.cgi

Select your model of CF-51 Toughbook, but you MUST be specific. There are about nine variations of the CF-51 so you must use the right drivers.

Download the hkeyapp, hkeyset, and hotkey files and unpack all files. Use the default unpack locations. If you download the files for a laptop version that is not your own, when you try to run any of these files the computer will tell you that the file is not for your model. If the files successfully unpack then you know you have the right files.

For hkeyset and hkeyapp you must run the set-up applications in the unpacked folders.

Go to Control Panel>System>Hardware>Device Manager and go to Other Devices.

The Hotkeys will appear as an "Unknown Devices" so if there is more than one, right click and choose "Update Driver".

Select "Install driver from specific location" and direct it to "C:\util2\drivers\hotkey" folder.

The computer will find the file and install the driver after which point you must restart the computer.

Hope this helps. It took me a while to figure this stuff out on my own so hope it speeds up somebody else's attempt.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: upgrade hard drive in panasonic toughbook cf-50

1 - Using a stack of DVD RW blank disks, or a large capacity USB Flash/Jump Drive, back up your Laptop computer completely. If necessary, Use WinZIP to ensue that everything has been compressed into the smallest capacity possible.
2 - When you are certain that you have backed up the drive completely, remove the older drive
3 - Line up the new drive and the old drive and ensure the jumpers are set to the same settings as they were set on the older HDD.
4 - Once you are sure, you then restore everything from the back-up drive for the old hdd to the new disk drive.
5 - Test to ensure that everything from the old drive has been backed up from the old drive to the new drive.
6 - If you are comfortable that your backup has been completly restored from the backup meda to the new, larger hard drive, then be certain that you have restored from the older drive to the new drive, tighten all screws and cables, then close all ports and ensure that everything has been done properly by and for you.
7 - Be certain that you have created the same user accounts in the new drive as you had on the older drive.
8 - Now, power off the new drive while in the laptop. Wait about 30 seconds to one minute, then restart the new hard disk drive.
9 Test everything, to be sure that everything works properly. Go through everything from the top of the menu to the bottom of the menu. Try all accessories, try all applications. Ensure that all works right and that the applications work as they used to work, when it was on the old drive.
10 - Remember, you have a warranty on the new HDD, so be sure that you have tested everything to ensure that it all works properly, before you sign off on this new drive.
11 - Once you are certain that it all works correctly, you can then be sure that it is working properly and competely, because only you know if things are working correctly as they should be.
12 - Then you can sign off and you can be sure that things work properly.
13 - As carpenters say ... measure twice; cut once. You can only do this one time, so if you measure it more than one tim, you can be certain that you will get it done correctly and be happy that you did it right. from beginning to end.
Have fun. Don't be too serious about it, but do be careful, and get it right. Remember, get it right the first time, and you will be pleased with the results at the end.

    Adjust brightness on laptop


    On the Panasonic Toughbook CF30 you can change
    the Brightness UP by pressing FN + F2 keys
    simultaneously to increase brightness and to decrease it
    hold FN and press F1 to lower brightness.
    This assumes that you have the HOTKEY driver loaded
    first, which enables these function keys.
    Good Luck!

    The speaker on toughbook CF-30 quit working when I pressed function key and f4


    If you have the speakers on and at the same time plug in a head set, the head set overrides the audio output. Make certain the Audio OUT is clear. Look to the Speak setup at the lower right desktop screen. Right click and check the Volume and Settings. Make adjustments from there.

    Cf-30 disable touchscreen


    On all Panasonic Toughbook Notebooks,
    you must get into the BIOS by pressing
    the F2 Function key when you turn on the
    Toughbook as it is booting. Press F2 repeatedly.
    This must be done in the 1-2 seconds before
    Windows starts to load. Then you will see
    Touchscreen usually on the 2nd page with the
    word "Enable". Simply select enable and press
    "Enter" and the choice between enable and disable
    will appear. Then select "Disable" with the cursor
    and then press Enter. Finally you need to
    "Save and Exit" the changes in the BIOS.
    That is it. Good Luck to you.

    Keyboard is stuck in numeric mode. Can't type


    On the Panasonic Toughbook CF-51 there is a key located on the top right next to the F12 function key called "NumLk" or Num Lock.
    Press this key once and the embedded numeric keypad is enabled.
    Press it a second time and it is disabled.
    How do you know if it is enabled or disabled?
    Simple: Observe the LED above the keyboard. If the second light with the square symbol and the number "1" is lit up, then the NumLock is enabled. If that LED is not lit up it is disabled.

    Good Luck.
