Panasonic cf51 toughbook display

I press the power button and the power switch LED, illuminates, but there is nothing on the screen. The battery pack and power status LED's at the front of the laptop are also green. I removed the battery, and wwwit does the same thing on adapter power.
I also can't get the CD drive to eject, all of the sudden. All of this just happened suddenly, last night. Please help.

    overheating will cause the same problem. It does have anything to do with a virus. Laptops will run hot due to low ventilation, specially if you use it on soft surfaces, like your lap. The ps starts dropping the required power and/or voltage. It can be fixed, but everything is toasted and will have a much shorter life.... replacement time.

    No the fan or HD doesnt spin. I repair 100's of these all day and this is the first time I've seen this problem. I powered it on, the bios screen flashed, then blue screen-o-death, then black. Now when you boot It just sits black screen two leds by the power button on, nothing happens. Removed all periph's (dvd,hd,batt, etc. ) same thing. Tried new HD, new P/S, re-seat ram, blewout the case... Going to try and reseat the CPU and GPU next but I have a feeling its the mobo... :(

Laptop dies when unplugged


Panasonic Toughbook PC Laptops usually have
very reliable battery pack. When your unit is plugged-in
but the Power is OFF, you should see an LED light as follows:
RED FLASHING: Means the battery needs replacement.
Orange/Yellow Solid: Means battery is charging.
Solid Green: Means battery is fully charged.
NO Light AT ALL: Means that Battery Pack is missing.

There is also a battery calibration utility on all Panasonic
Toughbook PC's manufactured since 2004. This is a factory
installed software and is only present in factory units.

This software may also be downloaded as a driver from the
Panasonic Toughbook website as follows:

http://pc-dl.panasonic.co.jp/dl/

Check also in the bottom right hand corner under
Windows for the battery Icon. This will indicate if
the battery is charging, present or not present,
and under Windows 7+ will indicate if the battery
needs to be replaced or not.

Good Luck!

I was on my Panasonic Toughbook CF 73 this morning, I had been using a wireless connection, but I could not get the wireless to work, so I plugged in the adapter and the phone line for dial up, I got...


On all Panasonic Toughbooks the following works.
Please unplug you Toughbook and remove the battery pack.
Then Please do not put the battery pack back in.
Without the battery pack, plug back in the Toughbook.
Try to start the Toughbook, it should work.
If it does not, try to hold down the power button for 12-15 seconds continuously. This should "reset" your Toughbook.

Good Luck.
