It sounds to me like you requre Win'XP Service Pack 3.
If you are using Service Pack 2 or earlier, there is no
SATA support which is why the HDD is not recognized.

Get Service Pack 3 and your problems will be solved.

Good Luck

Internal wireless adaptors are not made for generic use. Each motherboard used a different design to it. You will have to use a USB type adaptor.

Boot up with the Windows XP installation CD (you will need the Product Installation code) then proceed to install Windows XP follow the instruction to delete the existing partition - create a new partition - then Format the partition (not a quick Format) - this will wipe the hard disk and install a clean Windows XP system.

Any usb mouse will work. Just get one off ebay: http://www.ebay.com

Click Start/Control Panel and look for Mouse. Look through it for what ever problem you might be having.

If you are saying your mouse/touchpad has a problem then try reinstalling the touchpad driver.

Get online and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "Panasonic Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Download and install the Touchpad drivers.

If thelaptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

if you disconnect the charger and the battery died then that means that your laptop battery is broken and it won't work untill you get a new one.

Check your BIOS settings and make sure they USB is not blocked in BIOS from booting the machine. By Default the Toughbook series are set to block the USB port from booting the machine at the factory.

Panasonic... | Answered on Dec 03, 2011

You'll need to go to the Panasonic site and download the Bios update from them. for the Toughbook series they normally don't release updates through a 3rd party.
