You need to dig around and find the program (likely running all the time and in the system tray in the lower right hand corner) that controls the power settings, and turn off all of the learning switches, or anything called "SMART" something. After doing this, run the laptop on battery all the way down until it shuts itself off, then plug it in and recharge it fully, and then continue as normal. UNINSTALLING the power management program from CONTROL PANEL -> ADD REMOVE PROGRAMS should also work.

Good luck...

Factory restore

The following information comes from the Panasonic Website:

Recovery DVDs are available by mail for select Toughbook® products. Windows® XP back up service is only available to customers who purchased Panasonic computers with XP downgrade rights. Windows XP Backup Image and Windows 7 Recovery DVDs restore a PC to its original factory image. The standard Panasonic factory image includes the Windows operating system and all drivers/applications originally installed by Panasonic.

Most 2011 models of Panasonic Toughbook computers now have a Recovery partition on the hard drive instead of a Recovery DVD included in the laptop box. The only exceptions are the Toughbook F9, H2 and U1 Ultra which will continue to ship with a Windows 7 Recovery DVD. Besides restoring the computer to its original factory image, the Recovery Partition can also be used to load 64-bit Windows 7 Professional (32-bit ships by default from Panasonic).

You can order the Recovery Disks here:

Put panasonic cf 29 into safe mode

On ALL Panasonic Toughbooks you can
boot into safe mode as follows:

Make sure the Toughbook is OFF.

Power on the Toughbook and immediately
start to press repeatedly the "F8" function key
which is usually located above the number 7 key.

You only have 2-3 seconds to do this and this
will only work in Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7.

A "text-only" screen will come up. You can then
choose SAFE MODE or if you also need to
connect to the internet choose:
Safe Mode with Networking.

Use the UP or Down Arrows to highlight the
selected option and then press Enter.

That is it.

Good Luck!

Start my panasonic CF-f9 in safe mode. what key do I press??

For ALL Panasonic Toughbook Models
and for all Operating Systems
(Win XP, Vista and Win'7):

To start in safe mode, press the "F8" function key
(located ABOVE the number 7) immediately and
repeatedly as soon as you power-ON your
Panasonic Toughbook model.

You will see three choices in a text-only Windows:

Safe Mode (without networking)
Safe Mode with networking (my regular choice)
Safe Mode with Command Prompt

Use the UP or Down Arrow Keys to HighLight
the selction and then press Enter to choose.

That is it!

I dropped my panasonic tough book C-484HHUEM when working on it

the hard drive is located under the keyboard in toughbooks
note its for CF47 but they are similar
As for not booting fully that could be a number of things, maybe you have tried have power so a reset might not help but still try it, remove battery and ac power hold power button down for 40 seconds. Try running also just on ac and then just on battery. Have you tried to run the machine in safe mode pressing F8 on boot. Even though it could be corrupt data or damaged HD worth trying the simple stuff.
hope helps a bit, get back to me if i can help at all
