Question about Panasonic PC Desktops

2 Answers

I have replaced the hard drive on a panasonic t2 laptop and the power now is problematic. When you turn off the laptop, you need to pop out the battery, reseat it then turn the device back on. Any ideas is there something that I need to reset for the device to work properly?

    Thanks for the reply - I have tried to change the battery - still does the same thing. The only thing that works is to take out battery and reseat then start up again. Sometimes it doesn't even shut all the way down - have to hold the power button until all the lights go out.

A common problem with laptop batteries is that develop a dead short and will not allow the machine to start. Try replacing the battery.

    Also, if the machine will start and run properly without the battery, then that is the indicator that it's the battery and not the machine.

The process you are doing now is itself a reset only.

i think this is a battery issue.

did you try a different battery?

Hello,

CRT is the connection to the monitor
CMT is the connection to a modem or external device such as a printer that use that connection.
You would need the CRT connection. The CMT is optional.

Good Luck

If all you want to do is remove/replace memory and hard drives no teardown of the is needed. Power down and unplug the computer.
*Remove the side cover. With a standard retail computer this can be a bit confusing; some have two screws on the rear of that side and the cover pops off. Others have hidden snaps or catches and the side comes off.
*Hard drives have either side screws holding them in, or some such as older Dells have plastic tabs that you gently pull out and the drive is free. Unplug the two cables on the drive.
*Memory: there are two small thumb snaps on each end of the memory stick that you push down and the memory pops free. Be careful replacing the sticks! Carefully line up the slot on the mounting socket on the motherboard with the plastic ridge on the stick, and press down firmly, first on one end and then on the other. You will see the small thumb snaps pop up as the stick settles in to the slot. Make sure the thumb snaps are fully upright, same as originally were.

Panasonic cf 29 will not power up, is there a fuse?


Test your PSU power supply unit or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty



One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle of restarting or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive



Test all leads that attach to your hard drive power and data cables IDE SATA

the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty


make sure all leads that are attached to your dvd\cd floppy drives have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty


computers need power and data to travel through every working device to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error


even something as small as a faulty electrical or fan lead can cause you problems



motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail



check all electrical power input and extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working



also check the Cmos battery and computer RAM modules make sure they are securely seated with no dust built up or in the sockets on some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in


check you CPU central processing unit make sure its securely seated and has thermal paste it might be getting to hot the thermal paste will help disperse the heat

Thermal compound is a sticky paste that is placed directly onto the CPU.


Allowing for a more direct heat transfer between the CPU and HEAT SINK and preventing air gaps from forming between the CPU and heat sink.

hope this helps

How to change a newhard drive to HP G50-112NR laptop and let it work.


Shutdown the computer completely, disconnect all the devices connected to the laptop, remove the power cord, flip the computer over, take out the battery, look right at the center, you will find a compartment with two screws, that your memory compartment, just above that, you would find a long rectangular compartment, which will have icon of three cds lying one on another, thats the hard drive compartment, open it and take out the hard drive, you would find a black or white colored strip coming out of the hard drive base of the compartment, pull that gently upward, that will pop-out/ pull out the hard drive, replace the hard drive and close the compartment, and your hard drive is ready to work, reconnect every thing and restart the laptop, the computer would work perfectly fine as per your expectation.

ACER Aspire L100 Desktop is dead?


If the hard drive is OK then you can remove the hard drive from the desktop case, and insert the hard drive into a USB 3 1/2" hard drive adapter case, this should come with a power adapter. These are available at your friendly computer shop.
Boot up the laptop then plug this USB hard drive adapter into the laptop's USB port. The laptop will see this as an external USB hard drive. You can open the various folders and files on this external drive and copy the folders and files to the laptop.
You can delete the Windows folder and Program Folders on this external drive to free up disk space and use this as a back up drive etc.
If you are not sure how to remove the hard drive and install it into an USB hard disk case, then I suggest you get a computer savy friend to help you.
