Some motherboard BIOS's allow you to specify how many USB ports you want enabled
go to your Control Panel, System, Device Manager.

go down to where it says Universal Serial Bus Controllers, click the + sign,
you will see a list of devices, probably something like this
via rev5 usb host controller
via rev5 usb host controller
usb printing support
usb mass storage controller
usb root hub
usb root hub

right click on the ones that say via or intel or SIS, or ALI, or Standard open host controller, and choose uninstall.

you will be asked if your sure, and you will see some of the USB root hubs disappear.

If you are asked to restart, choose no, and remove the other via/sis/intel/etc open host controller (s) from your system, when they have all been removed restart your computer.

when the computer restarts, it will detect the USB controller and connected devices, reinstall the drivers/software

External display video monitor


On Page 10 of the Operating Instruction Manual
for the Panasonic Toughbook CF29, it shows
the "External Display Port" or VGA Connector
located on the back side with the cover closed.

This port is located approximately in the center
of the back side, just to the right of the
port replicator port and may be colored "BLUE".

The manual can be found here:

Check your connections and cables. From the look of the thing it is designed to work from the USB port on a desktop computer, a laptop gives less power through the USB ports, this is why most USB powered devices for laptops have 2 USB plugs for connection.

Panasonic CF-52 Unusable USB Ports


Not usable? Are they broken?

Go into the bios and make sure USB is enabled. Restart your computer and look at the screen to see which key to hit to get into the BIOS or System Setup. Look for USB to make sure it is enabled.

If you have a pcmcia slot on your laptop, you can always buy a device that sticks into it that will have usb ports on it for less than $30 - $40. Otherwise you might need a repairman to take the laptop apart and solder new usb ports to the motherboard.

Does the panasonic cf27 have an ADSL port?


I was able to (http://all-tech-thoughts.blogspot.com/2010/05/linux-on-panasonic-toughbook-cf-27.html) all about the CF27 and apparently it does not have the required port (an Ethernet RJ-45).

They do sell PCMCIA ethernet cards if you wanted to add one.

I have a panasonic CF-27EB and USB wont work.


Your port is probably damaged. Are you saying all USB devices are not working through the ports or a particular device is not working? Give me more detail please.
