At what point does it shut down? Normally thats caused by heat and/or could be viruses. I would blow out all the ports with compressed air. Does it get into windows before it shuts down?

Where do I find a restore and recovery cd for a panasonic toughbook cf-51 mk2LL?


I wouldn't suggest buying such recovery CDs from 3rd parties when you have the option to get it from Original manufacturer. Buying it from a third party will not guarantee desired results and you may lose a lot of money. You can get it through the official Panasonic website. Here's the link:

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:

I want to restore my panasonic cf 74 to original factory


The best way to "Factory" Restore your Panasonic
Toughbook CF74 is to use the original recovery
disk(s) that came with the unit when new.

If you can't find them, you can order them from
Panasonic at the following website:

http://business.panasonic.com/support-computerstablets-dvdrequests

Here is what they say:
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.

Front buttons don't work on CF-19 (MK2) After upgrade from xp sp2 to xp sp3!


From the description, the laptop will only support SP2 the only suggestion I can offer is format the hard drive and reload your original disc to get the front controls back.

I would like to restore my cf 51 to original factory settings how do i do it?


Boot with the recovery CD in and ensure the first boot device is CD. Follow on screen instructions.

NB = All data will be lost in this procedure so back up all important data.

If you do not have Recovery CD, you MAY be able to download it from manufacturers site. You will also need Windows CD key handy (Under laptop)

Toughbook CF-51 Sound


You can download the XP drivers from the panasonic site. CF-51 got many flavors and be sure that your model numbers are at hand when you retrieve the factory installed drivers.

Delete all SigmaTel drivers from the registry hardware section. This would help reinstall the correct driver. The presence of these wrong registry values prevent successful installation of the factory drivers.

I have installed se7en, vista and XP successfully. The sound is really problematic since Dell and Gateway laptops use similar sound chips and offers drivers on the net... but they don't work at all. The Gateway driver seems to install perfectly from device manager report, but only the mic works & no sound.

What I do is install the factory provided drivers in XP compatible mode and then use windows update to download the latest SigmaTel drivers (se7en pre-beta). Windows got a more compatible driver but it can only install over the original since the chips cannot be recognized.
