Re: Panasonic Toughbook

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.

    Adjust brightness on laptop

    On the Panasonic Toughbook CF30 you can change
    the Brightness UP by pressing FN + F2 keys
    simultaneously to increase brightness and to decrease it
    hold FN and press F1 to lower brightness.
    This assumes that you have the HOTKEY driver loaded
    first, which enables these function keys.
    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!

    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.

    Install english Windows XP on Japanese Panasonic CF-Y7. Simply insert OS CD and reboot does not help. Computer does not read CD.

    The BIOS is probably configured to look for a bootable operating system on the hard drive before it looks at the CD drive. When you first turn on the computer, you have to hit a particular key to enter the BIOS setup (I don't know what it is for your model, but for most of the Japanese models I've seen it's the delete key. The startup splash screen should tell you what key it is. You have to hit the key before the splash screen goes away, otherwise it's already booting up from the hard drive.
    Once you get into the BIOS, you can select the boot option page and move the CD drive up above the hard drive in boot priority. If the OS is in the Japanese language, the BIOS text may also be in Japanese. You can probably download an English-language BIOS firmware update to change that.
