    Default Re: W7 issues + Toughbook Model Status

    I would like to have input from Toughbook owners on W7 problems in this thread
    I will edit this first post to list model and mk series then issues and then the member name
    Collectively we can help each other resolve issues but each mk number in a series could need different drivers and problem resolution
    It will be helpful to know ,who has what model and what items are not working and will serve as a reference to others considering upgrading to W7

    CF-19 MK2 everything working and after much fiddling fixed the hotkeys

    My solution might work for some of ya'll. It seems the hotkeys are tied in to the video driver. Download the Vista Driver for MK2 from Panny and unpack it. Download and upgrade to the latest graphic driver for mobile windows 7 from intel and install. After installation reboot. go to device manager>display adapter and uninstall it. do not reboot. Browse to where the Panny driver unpacked, should be in the util>driver>video folder. right click on setup, select properties>compatibility tab and choose vista service pack 1. close tab and install driver.select yes to it telling you it is an older driver, reboot.
    hotkeys should now work. for some reason if you try to install it by itself it won't work you have to upgrade and then downgrade. Maybe some of the newer files stay and help the old vista driver when it installs.
    This also cures the mute button issue that Rob mentioned in another thread.
    CF-28 MK1,CF-30, CF-29 and doing tech support for one CF-19 that belongs to my niece . I gotta fever and the only cure is more Toughbooks!

    Here's really dumb question: The Hot keys are the F# keys for volume and brightness ans such?

    Correct ,the most used are Fn+F9 = battery condition and Fn +F1 or F2 for screen brightness

    Last spring when I was testing W7 beta I had issues with hotkeys not working and I could not control the screen brightness on my cf74/cf19/cf30
    I had to remove w7 as I did not want the screen at full brightness
