Re: administrator

One possible solution would be to obtain a windows installation disk for the operating system you're using...which will allow you to format the hard drive and do a new windows installation.

Touchscreen windows xp pro

On the Panasonic Toughbook CF29,
the Touchscreen is the same as the "Mouse".

So you have to load the Touchpad/Touchscreen
Driver, not just the Touchscreen driver by itself.

The driver for the CF29 MK2 is located at this link:

Cf-29 does not work anymore with my linksys. Ipad works with the linksys though.

On ALL older Panasonic Toughbooks the original
WIFI drivers were the original drivers which shipped
with the operating system.

These drivers usually have a date of 2003 or 2004.

There are NEWER WIFI drivers that work with the
latest routers (G or N). The new drivers have dates
of 2006 or 2007 for Windows XP and 2008 or 2009
or even later for Windows 7.

The CF29 MK1 used a WIFI "B" Adapter which is limited.
The MK2 used a WIFI "G" Adapter which will be easier
to update.

Panasonic CF29 usually used Intel Brand WIFI adapters
so drivers could usually be found at the link:

Model: Panasonic Toughbook CF-29 I changed OS from Win XP to Win 7 & was able to get most of the drivers from panasonic BUT the touch screen is giving me a problem. Comments: Apr 18, 2010 -...


Okay, have you tried updating your system, usually, when update is done, drivers are also updated.

You can try the system update first and see if that would make any difference.

Let me know what happens next after you have done the update.

Good luck.

I need to know how can i replace the whole cd drive on my panasonic toughbook cf29

there's probably a release latch underneath the laptop that allows it to slide right out. Otherwise it's possible there are a few screws to remove.
Here's a CD drive on ebay
