Question about Panasonic Toughbook 71 Notebook
On all Panasonic Toughbooks, I would suggest to physically remove the battery pack and unplug the unit. Then WITHOUT putting the battery back in, try to plug back in the Toughbook and turn on the unit. This is even a suggestion from Panasonic Technicians themselves.
This process will "dissipate" any charge which may be preventing your Toughbook from turning on.
I hope this works for you and Good Luck!

Try hitting F8 right when Windows starts up. You will get a text menu with options. Try "last known good configuration" and see if that helps. If it doesn't you may be able to get it working by reinstalling XP and choosing "Repair",which will try and replace all your windows files with the original ones.
If that doesnt work then you will have to reload XP from scratch. If you have to do that then install service pack 2 before any other software or drivers.

If it doesn't recognize the hard drive, then the virus did it's job, and you will need a new hard drive. Many of these newer viruses are designed to inflict hardware damage through the use of the installed software, unlike the older viruses, that were designed to damage the software, rendering the computer useless, but no hardware damage. They used to be just annoyances, but now days they are malicious. I don't really understand why these kids have to write these viruses with the malicious intent they have. The internet crimes unit of the FBI have really been cracking down lately. In the future, keep on top of you antivirus with frequent scans, and be prepared to get rid of the virus at the first sign. If you leave it too long it will damage hardware, and now days too long isn't very long at all.
