Try using F10, F11 or the delete key, these are some of the other common key commands used. Otherwise if you feel daring, open the case and try taking the small blue thing(called a jumper) off of the pins it set on, and try starting your computer up that way with all of the typical key commands this includes F2

Where can I find the imei/cereal number for the Panasonic toughbook cf-y5?

The Serial Number for ALL Panasonic Toughbooks
is located in two (2) places:
1) On the white sticker or label located on
the underside of the Toughbook.
It starts with a number then a letter.
2) When you press the F2 Function key
as you start the Toughbook and then
enter the BIOS, the Serial Number is listed
on the first page.

Good Luck!

How to wipe clean CF-19 hard drive

If the Panasonic Toughbook CF19 has a Hard Disk Drive,
then you should be trying to wipe it by booting from an
external USB Optical (cdrom) drive.
You have to enter the BIOS by pressing the F2 function key,
and set USB CDROM as the first bootable device.
Then save and exit the bios.
The external optical (cdrom) will now boot
with the proper bootable media.
If you have a HIREN bootable CD then one of the
tools will allow you to WIPE and RE-FORMAT the
internal hard disk drive.
Good Luck.

    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!

    Setup utility

    To get into the built-in setup utility on a Panasonic
    CF29 Toughbook, please turn on the unit and immediately
    press the "F2" function key repeatedly.

    As long as your unit has a working keyboard, the setup utility
    should open. If no password is required, then you can enter
    the setup utility and make changes.

    Please be careful about making changes. If you make a
    change and then want to go back, you can either exit and
    discard changes, or you can set factory defaults in the last
    (right side) selection and then exot and save changes.

    Good Luck to you.

    How do i enable touchscreen on panasonic toughbook cf 30ctqazbm

    The first thing I would try on any Panasonic Toughbook with touchscreen would be to enter the BIOS upon start-up by pressing the "F2" function key. When you are in the BIOS, there is a setting on the 2nd screen tab "Main" which says "Touchscreen:". This should be set to "Enable" instead of Disable. Then you press the "F10" function key and the message: "Save configuration changes and exit now?". Press "Yes" and the toughbook will reboot and your Touchscreen will be enabled at the BIOS level.

    Good Luck!

    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.
