Question about Fujitsu Siemens LifeBook P5020 Notebook

1 Answer

Boot from CF, SD or PCMCIA

Hi

I'd like to be able to boot from somewhere other than the HDD to speed things up and use less power. Is it possible to do this? What are the steps? How do I tell the BIOS where to boot from? I'm using XP.

Thanks - z

WHEN YOU START UP AT THE BOTTOM OF YOU SCREEN THERE WILL BE BOOT OPTION BUT IT DOES NOT LAST LING SO STARD UP ONCE AND FIND OUT WHAT BUTTON TO HIT - IT WILL BE AN 'F 1-12' BUTTON - THEN JUST RE-BOOT AND HIT THE BUTTON


P.S. IT POPS UP AT THE BOTTOM LEFT OR RIGHT OF THE SCREEN AND MOST LIKLY F10 OR F12

4. Check "Number of proccessors" and select "2′ or "4′ from the dropdown menu. (obviously, you can only select it if you have a dual-core/quad-core).

Irql not less or equal blue sreen cf-51


reformatting the disk / restore computer back to company settings...is only the resolution for this...

To reinstall your operating system, you must have a CD drive in your multimedia pocket.

Note: CF-51 (Mk2) and CF-51 (Mk3) can also boot to an external Panasonic USB CD drive.

When the laptop is first powered on, the Panasonic name appears in white lettering with the phrase 'Press F2 to enter Setup' directly below it. When this phrase appears on the screen, immediately press F2 on your keyboard. Put the Panasonic recovery CD in your drive and use the arrow keys to move to the boot tab. Change the order of boot so the CD drive boots first. To do this, highlight the CD drive and press F6 until CD drive is the No. 1 listing. Press F10 to save your changes, exit and follow the instructions when your CD starts running.

Bought a cf 27 toghbook wont boot up? any ideas?


- if you hear some ticking sound when u open it most likely it is HDD issue
- if no sound and power is not lit up it is adapter(try to plug adapter to other power outlet)
- try to drain the excess power by removing battery and adapter then press power button for 20secs
- then put the battery in try if it will turn on
(if yes,good)
(if no,put the adapter in - if able to charge and boot up it is battery issue

Panasonic CF-51,s are becoming common on Ebay but most do not have hard drives or caddies installed.The caddies cost more than the computers & are almost impossible to find for sale.Is it possible to...


I found this via pendrivelinux.com:

http://www.pendrivelinux.com/testing-your-system-for-usb-boot-compatibility/


So try that out. I just got a toughbook cf-51 and will try it soon myself. Mine came with an XP reg code so maybe that can run from a virtual machine inside of linux.
My advice is to resist the urge to drop yours onto cement from a couple of feet. Not quite that tough.
The hard drive caddy is "the catch", for certain.
Too lazy to look into what the hdd connector is for that, maybe there's a cable or converter somewhere.

Upgrade the Toshiba Libretto 50 CT


if you want to improve the speed of your laptop you could buy a faster harddrive with an higher rpm per minute than the one installed in the unit, that WILL speed up the system:), and yes its possible to boot from the 2gb flash card but i recommend if you are going to use a flash card you get a bigger one:)
Cheers

PanasonicToughbook CF-27: PCMCIA/USB 2.0 Card


Hi,
Unless you can use external power to the usb 2.0 pcmcia card, a CF-27 probly won't handle the load.
Their power adapters are only 15V and the unit itself is a P2 433 at best. It's just pulling too much power.
Sorry
Good luck

Connection speed


the usual maximum speed for a v92 dial up modem is around 48-52kbps, although sometimes the way windows calculates the speed can be different, showing higher speeds than is actually possible, hence the 115k that shows when connected. The only way you can get faster download speeds is to download the 'Onspeed' software which compresses pictures etc to enable twice the download speed.
