Why does my Panasonic CF-19 get so hot?

It is my experience even with Panasonic Toughbooks
that they can get hot due to overheating caused by
"Dust" accumulation. If this is the case, my advice is
to use a compressor (not a can of compressed air)
and physically blow-out the dust.

I would first recommend to remove the battery pack
and next to remove the hard drive removable "caddy"
as well as the Optical Drive is the case of the CF52 or 53.
Open all the rubberized covers and if there is a plastic
insert covering the PCMCIA slots then remove those as well.

I would blow methodically in thru all the open ports and doors,
thru the cavity created by the battery and/or HDD caddy,
thru the SDCard Slots, the PCMCIA slot and even thru the
headphone and microphone jacks.

With a compressor I would not allow the air pressure
to exceed 40psi and realistically I would use 20-25 psi.
I would prefer to use short bursts of air of between 1-2
seconds each rather than holding the trigger for a long time.

With each air burst, you may "see" the air come out,
which is not possible unless the air is mixed with "Dust",
in which case you are seeing the dust come out.

Don't forget to clean each connector (ie. USB, VGA, etc.)
and close each rubberized door after you clean it so that
you can remember which doors have already been cleaned.

If you see any moisture coming out with the air and
a fine film of water, be very cautious and proceed at
your own risk. Moisture can damage the internal
components of the Toughbook or any notebook.

Good Luck.

Toughbook CF-18 Supervisor Passwd

Toughbook CF18, CF-18
How to remove the BIOS Supervisor Password:

Open all covers and openings. Remove hard drive and battery. Remove bottom of notebook. Many many tiny screws.
Now look towards the rear of the notebook. You will see 2 plugs both have a red and black wires. The one with the much smaller wires and connector is the BIOS battery. Use a pair of needle nose pliers and remove this plug.

Leave it off for 5-15 minutes.

Leave the BIOS battery plug off. Replace the laptop's main battery. Leave the hard drive out. Turn the unit over and turn it on.
Press F2 when the screen comes up. POOF! NO PASSWORD!

Go to Security and disable the password. Save configuration. Turn off the notebook. Replace the small connector. Turn it back over and turn it back on. Press F2 and verify that there is no password. Go to Security and Disable the password again. Save the configuration.
Put the bottom back on. You're done.

Your hard drive is now dead. Replace it. When a supervisor password is used it locks the hard drive to that password. There is NO WAY to recover the hard drive. It is called an ATA security password. Without the ATA password the hard drive is completely useless.
