Question about Panasonic Toughbook 48 Notebook

Panasonic Cf-48 toughbook pentium 4 windows

Toughbook was working great. Turned on this morning, everything booted up fine, wireless connection linksys connected went to go into email and then it went to a dark screen and notified me that it had to shut down to protect from damage to the toughbook. I just shut it down until tonight. Now when I try to get to started it has this message for Realtek PCI Fast Ethernet Controller v2.12
PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable
PXE-M0f:Exiting PXE ROM
I have tried F8 and I still get this mesage, I just was wondering how to get somewhere even if I have to reinstall everthing. Any ideas? How do I get to the reinstall status? How else can I get into safe mode besides F8?
Thank you for your help....

I don't know what version of windows your running but try first going into the bios on your laptop and disabling your adapter. Then see if you can boot windows to try and find out if it is a hardware or software problem. If you can boot windows after disabling in bios you have some idea now what to look for. Instructions for how to enter bios should be in your manual for your Toughbook or posted on Panasonic's web site for your machine

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!

Can not enable wireless on toughbook cf-52 "radio is off"


Most Panasonic Toughbooks have a Physical On-Off
Wireless Switch Built-In. I belive the one on the CF-52
is located on the front right-hand side hidden behind
the handle. It is a small switch and you must slide it
to the right side (On) as opposed to the left side (Off).
Most modern Toughbooks also have a Wireless Switch
Utility which may be required. If so, you can find the driver at:

That is it. Good Luck.

I have a Panasonic Toughbook CF-28 Mk III P3 1Ghz 512Mb Ram , I have installed a brand new DVD rom Drive in the MP Bay it reconises in bios also reads upon first post however, will not boot from any os cd...


Some bios menu allows you to boot from USB. (Some are locked this option by makers.)

Run safety mode and try again to see whether your DVD rom is working.

Best way will be go to device manager; go to properties of DVD rom; go to driver and click roll back driver.

If this is not working (in case), uninstall driver and reinstall it.

Wireless connectivity


possible reasons that it is "off"

Physical switch on outside of case that has a turn on and turn off function. Make sure this is turned on.

Go to network places and find the connection that says wireless (or something similiar), it should say Enabled, if not then enable it.
