Some bios menu allows you to boot from USB. (Some are locked this option by makers.)

Run safety mode and try again to see whether your DVD rom is working.

Best way will be go to device manager; go to properties of DVD rom; go to driver and click roll back driver.

If this is not working (in case), uninstall driver and reinstall it.

As long as it is a plug&play drive it should work just fine. It's hard to install a USB CD/DVD Drive that isn't plug&play.

I obtained a CF-VDC271 for my CF-28 Toughbook. It will not recognize the CD ROM


Open Device Manager, uninstall the CD/DVD media drivers, scan for new hardware, and let it reinstall the drivers automatically. If it does not begin installing the drivers automatically, or if the drivers fail to install properly the CD/DVD media device might be physically improperly installed, or otherwise faulty.

HOW TO INSTALL WINDONS XP PRO ON TOUGHBOOK CF-18


XP can not be installed from usb as the bios does not enable it. Plug the ide hard drive into an older desktop system and install from boot on cd. Once all files are copied over then you need to copy the i386 folder over from the cd. Reinstall the hard drive into the toughbook and carry on the install from there.

My panasonic toughbook cf 28 memory issue


i'm not sure what your configuration was in the computer before you tried installing the extra memory, but here's some common problems i see.

-it might exceed the maximum amount of memory that can be recognized in each slot or total for the computer

-it might have be installed in matching pairs (if it is a 2 memory slot machine which most are).

-it might not take that exact speed/rating

hope that helps
