Question about PC Laptops

1 Answer

Panasonic CF-27 I have an ageing CF-27 with a 300mhz PII I have seen refurbished CF-27 being sold with a 500mhz PIII I would like to know if these are running the same mother board as my machine, and if so how should I go about updating, I'm mostly asking because I need another 50mhz to run power DVD, so a less demanding DVD player would also help!

Re: Panasonic CF-27

Not worth doing and may not help even if you did.

If power DVD does not work at 450mhz then it wont be any better at 500.

Try using VLC player it plays DVDs and might work for you (its a small program and free)

Does anyone know the default BIOS password for a CF 27. Thanks

Don't know the generic password, you probably can get it if you contact Panasonic about this, but you can however reset the password. To reset the BIOS password read the information from this link.

In case of your laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD.

Internal wireless adaptors are not made for generic use. Each motherboard used a different design to it. You will have to use a USB type adaptor.

OS wont recognize wireless modem

This happen regularly on the older Toughbooks. Find an XP or Win2000 modem driver for the 27 or 72 at Panasonic's support site or and it should work just fine. It will allow the machine (XP) to recognize the modem and install the drivers.spellcheck.gif
