    Quick note to all,
    There were upgrades to Tablet 2005. They are bundled with XP SP2 and SP3, not stand alone. Doing the XP upgrades to your Tablet will install these upgrades. Vista has the tablet functions included so no more Tablet OS under Vista if you care.

    The CF-18s with touchscreens DO have serial ports on the back... It is the digitizer models that don't have the serial port on the back. And yes... They are fully rugged models.

    You can also check out specs on ANY Toughbook HERE!

    My mk2 cf18 appears to have a serial port at the back-left corner, next to the HD15 external video port. I don't think I have seen anything later than a mk2 cf-18 here in Oz yet. Saw a mk3 (1 ghz) cf28 for the first time the other day. Not for sale though. :cool:

    One quick question, under driver installation, what does this refer to:-

    ""OS INF File driver , unextract to c: and install and reboot""

    I have looked diligently through the entire drivers I have downloaded, and see nothing that matches this.

    Does anyone know the exact file this refers to please?

    Intel(r) Chipset drivers.
    Install these drivers and the latest Service Pack before installing other drivers.

    Post your full model number if you don't understand and I or someone will give you a link

    So I guess the Intel chipset drivers would be intelinf_18_1_d030128 in my case??? My model is a CF-18BHAZXDM, so it's a Mark 1 machine.

    By the way, I tried downloading the drivers from the link provided in the first message on this stickie, but the download speed was terrible(even when it did download at all). So, I ended up downloading the set from here:
    http://www.toughbookdrivers.com/drivers/cf-18/
    When I cross-checked the files, they all seemed to have exactly the same names as the files I would have got from the suggested link, so I guess they are OK to use.
    There are 3 files that I am quite unsure of their use, and when to apply them:
    18m1b13a
    18m2bl10
    Checknet-2.11L10D-2kxp-nonlogo_m-web
    What the dickens are they?
    Thanks for your help.

    I have found instances of incorrect drivers on that site
    Can’t give you an example, as I don’t remember the files
    Anyways the 2 files that you link to are I believe bios files
    Not sure on the last

    So, when attempting to get a full set of drivers for my Mk1 CF-18, (Touchscreen, not Digitizer)from the recommended location:-
    http://pc-dl.panasonic.co.jp/cgi-bin/itn/toughbook/dl01.cgi

    I fail to see the Touchscreen driver, and the Touchpad driver.
    Is it me, are they not listed, or are they simply called something else (that I am unaware of) ??

    I also did several full searches here for the Touchscreen/Touchpad driver(s):-
    http://www.panasonic.com/ which is also a recommended download site.......couldn't find them.

    However, those drivers are for download for a Mk2 CF-18. What would happen if I were to use them instead? Or does anyone have the correct Mk1 drivers for me??

    Many thanks.
