Not usable? Are they broken?

Go into the bios and make sure USB is enabled. Restart your computer and look at the screen to see which key to hit to get into the BIOS or System Setup. Look for USB to make sure it is enabled.

If you have a pcmcia slot on your laptop, you can always buy a device that sticks into it that will have usb ports on it for less than $30 - $40. Otherwise you might need a repairman to take the laptop apart and solder new usb ports to the motherboard.

SOURCE: My Panasonic CF-74 doesn't seem to be detecting

Some motherboard BIOS's allow you to specify how many USB ports you want enabled
go to your Control Panel, System, Device Manager.

go down to where it says Universal Serial Bus Controllers, click the + sign,
you will see a list of devices, probably something like this
via rev5 usb host controller
via rev5 usb host controller
usb printing support
usb mass storage controller
usb root hub
usb root hub

right click on the ones that say via or intel or SIS, or ALI, or Standard open host controller, and choose uninstall.

you will be asked if your sure, and you will see some of the USB root hubs disappear.

If you are asked to restart, choose no, and remove the other via/sis/intel/etc open host controller (s) from your system, when they have all been removed restart your computer.

when the computer restarts, it will detect the USB controller and connected devices, reinstall the drivers/software

SOURCE: The tab on the ethernet port has broke off so the

Hi,

The NIC (ethernet port) is part of the laptop motherboard. To fix something like that you will have to be good at micro soldering.

I find it strange that there is a tab on the port itself, the locking tab's are usually on the RJ-45's (ethernet) cables themselves like in this picture>>>>

Your port is probably damaged. Are you saying all USB devices are not working through the ports or a particular device is not working? Give me more detail please.

Swapped out hdd cf-52 nothing happening


When you swapped out the Hard Disk Drive
of the Panasonic Toughbook CF52 it is very
importatnt that you did not "hot" swap the HDD
but that you turned off the unit with a full shutdown
and unplugged it as well.

Once you removed the Hard Disk Drive (HDD)
I am assuming that you replaced the drive with
another drive that had a proper operating system
already installed. If not, then of course nothing
happened since you replaced the HDD with a blank
or unformatted HDD.

One way to verify if the replacement Hard Drive
is recognized by the Toughbook is to go into
the BIOS by pressing the F2 function key and
checking the size or capacity of the replacement
Hard Disk Drive. If it shows the proper value,
then the HDD is recognized at the Hardware Level.

If it shows HDD as None or Zero then the replacement
HDD is NOT recognized and you have to try a different
drive which is functional.

Good Luck!

Check your connections and cables. From the look of the thing it is designed to work from the USB port on a desktop computer, a laptop gives less power through the USB ports, this is why most USB powered devices for laptops have 2 USB plugs for connection.

CF-52 V Drivers


We couldn't really identify which drivers are missing. Here's what you can do. Boot to safe mode and check the device manager. Uninstall the drivers with problems and restart your computer. After that, install the drivers by going to the website of the manufacturer and download the drivers from there.

Use RadarSync if you want to update the drivers. This software is an automatic PC Updater (Drives).
