At boot up it stops and gives me an "Extended Ram Module Fail" It recognizes the CD/DVD Player and a new harddrive with nothing on it.

This is most likely a RAM issue but it may be that your RAM slots on your motherboard have become defective. If the latter, you will need to replace the motherboard, which may mean buying a new computer if a motherboard cannot be found at a reasonable price (try ebay as well Panasonic and other computer dealers)
However you should start by finding out what RAM is in your computer which means opening it if it won't start.
see the reference manual which can be downloaded at http://www.panasonic.com/business/toughbook/computer-support-download-manuals.asp Go to p119 - there you will find a slightly more informative description of what the problem is likely to be (RAM module). I don't know where the RAM modules are situated in your particular model of CF29, you will need to find out. Remove all of them. (see ref manual on how to do this - it looks like the standard method for laptops). Replace one of them in the approved fashion: ensure that it fits well: usually it is easy to tell when this has happened - see other guides for upgrading laptop RAM modules or videos (you tube has many) for this stage if you do not understand the Panasonic ref manual - I found the IBM T40series guide at www.lenovo,com very easy to understand. Now try starting the computer. If it gives the same error, remove and the RAM module and try again. If this doesn't work try the other RAM slot if your computer has one with the same memory module. If that doesn't work repeat the process with the other RAM module [if the computer had one]. In this fashion you should be able to determine whether and which RAM module is defective or if it is one of the slots on the motherboard. If there is only one module and slot, you will need to try reinserting the RAM and if that doesn't work using another known good stick of RAM of the correct type (not all RAM sticks of seemingly the correct spec, will work though: best use a reputable brand). This will tell you whether it's likely to be the original RAM or the motherboard, or just that the RAM had become improperly seated.

While carrying these operations the computer should be powered down and have the battery removed. Observe anti static precautions and do not force anything.

Good luck

Black screen 3 beeps when i turn it on


Firstly, many of your components are highly sensitive to static shock (the poke you get from touching certain things), so take care to avoid exposing computer's components to this.Try changing your RAM\Memory. Or just remove one stick and then try turning it on. If it works, then the stick you removed is causing the problem. If it still doesn't work right after removing one stick, then take out the other stick of RAM and put back in the one you took out to begin with. If you get it to start, then most likely the stick that you have removed is the cause of the problem. Try putting the sticks in different slots (one at a time) as well. Sometimes the slots go bad but not the memory. If you tested the RAM and the slots as described above and it still won't come on, then you may have some more severe problems that may require you to have the motherboard replaced in order for it to work right. Such as, the video chip is malfunctioning (this is affixed to the board and not easy to replace, the chipset is burned out (again, affixed to the motherboard), & etc. Please leave feedback about this solution. Thank you!

I have a Stylistic 5032D, running Windows XP Tablet, SP3. 2Gb RAM and 1.20GHz processor. I'd like to prolong its life - can I upgrade the processor or anything else to increase power? Thanks, Steve


Sorry no.

The CPU can't be upgraded as its a Pentium M 753 Ultra Low Voltage/ULV CPU.

Which is soldered directly to the motherboard.
And the max ram is 2gb which you have.
You can try a faster hard drive if currently you have a 5400rpm buy a 7200rpm drive, but this always brings more heat, and heat means lower battery life/time.

Good Luck.

I am using HP Laptop compeq presario c301tu when on the notebook the power led always blinking but here no disply


Dear client! You should check your RAM change slot use other slot for RAM if you have. It is very possible your problem will be solved. If problem remaining same you should your VGA it might be possible that it could be out of order and it will being not worked. If your laptop does not give any beep it could be possible your motherboard problem presist. But I assure that RAM will be out of order or RAM's slot fault so first of all you check your RAM or RAM's slot.
Thank You

Relating to ram


I am not sure what motherboard you have, but I would suspect that your computer will take at least 2 sticks of 512 MB each.
You didn't say what operating system you are using. If you are using Windows 98, 128 MB is fine. If you are using Windows XP, you should have at least 10x that, or 1GB to run correctly.
You really do need to know how much memory your computer will support, so you can go on the manufacturer's site and look it up or use the manual that came with the computer, if you still have it.

Is a processor upgrade possible


no, it will not handle a pentium4, but you could get a much faster p3 for it. and the ram amount doesnt depend on the processor type, it depends on the motherboard and os. and it looks like 256 is the maximum ram for that model.

Chequered screen


Hi,
I fixed mine finally!!! I ordered a cable kit and replaced the cable from the display to the motherboard (I actualy replaced them all but that one was the culprit.) Also, I learned that if you put the cable in backwards :) into the motherboard, it will appear very dim as it did with the bad cable. I believe that this is because the backlight inverter is not active, which in other posts here, may mean that the inverter is bad. Just a thought...
