    Thanks for the help! I managed to get it apart and the screws were visible when you take the hard drive out. Every single piece is out of that computer now... My dad wanted to replace the power jack. So I hope I remember how to put it back together!



    Thank you again!

CD drives usually slide out after removing one or two screws. Usually the screws are under the keyboard or come up from the bottom of the unit. I would suspect that you will see it under the keyboard.

The keyboard is usually held in place by a few screws at its top. You will most likely have to pry off the plastic button cover that spans the top of the keyboard to get to them. Some keyboard are also fastened through the bottom of the unit by a few screws.

    I suggest to people that they take a lot of pictures as they take a notebook apart, that way they have a guide when putting it back together.

How to remove the present cd drive from a CF-29 toughbook?


The cd rom drive on the CF-29 is a modular, removable drive.
When you open the left side cover, the cover has a small square symbol which is "MP". MP stands for Multimedia Pocket which is what Panasonic calls the drive bay where is the cd rom drive is installed. On the bottom of the Toughbook is a sliding cover which has a left arrow sysmbol <MP RELEASE which stands for Multimedia Pocket Release. If you slide this cover completely to the right side and the left side cover is open, then you will see a new switch which you push to the left side. This will release whatever drive is in the multimedia pocket and this can be replaced by a CDRW/DVD Drive. The approx. cost of the drive should be maximum $50 for a used drive plus taxes and shipping. At least this is how much we charge for a CDRW/DVD Drive.

Good Luck.

Panasonic Toughbook CF-51 shutting down


Sue, it's not the inverter board. People who don't really know much about laptops will often diagnose them incorrectly, especially computer repair shops. The problem you're experiencing is most likely related to your motherboard. Unfortunately the most expensive part to replace on most laptops.

Your best bet is to probably just have any important files from the laptop extracted by a repair shop and then selling the computer "As-IS" on ebay. Or you could try another local repair shop to take a look at it. I wouldn't pay any money for a diagnostics since it would take most techs about 5-10 minutes to confirm what I just typed.

Trouble booting!


You could attempt to boot to safe mode, and run the Start> System Recovery > PC Recovery Application.

Otherwise, I'd boot to safe mode, select start, run, type: msconfig, select the startup tab, remove any unwanted startup items that may be causing the system crash.

Hope this helps.
