    Anyway, yeah I have a couple spare caddies and a spare 120gb SSD so I can go crazy if I want. Was going to try Linux too though for fun.......

    My CF-19 started it's first day of work on the factory floor today and performed admirably! Calibrated the touchscreen and messed with tablet mode for a while. Is it right that all the edges of the screen are out of bounds so to speak? It seems strange that I can't touch the taskbar or start button....
    Then I changed to touchscreen mode in the bios but all that did was turn off touch altogether it seems.

    Nope that is not right . You should be able to touch anywhere on the screen. What do you have for choices in the BIOS ?

    And you tried all 3 settings and could not touch the outer edge. Not ever with auto ?

    If I set it to touchscreen then nothing worked at all. There are Fujitsu drivers/utility that can be got for this maybe. There is also a Panasonic calibration tool in the Pannasonic Manager or whatever but it says it is incompatible with my hardware. Must only be for other models I guess.

    But in auto/tablet mode, I do the Windows calibration and it just gives me a blue box with 4 touch points on the corners. Everything outside the box is "dead". I have seen others calibrating Toughbooks and they are prompted to touch more points all the way out to the corners of the screen. But not me.......

    But I am frequently asking questions.:cool:

    Sounds to me you have the wrong drivers / program. You should try downloading it again and see what happens

    Also unplug the AC/DC cord, take out the battery and hold down the power button for 20 or so second's. Put the battery Back in and start the 19 back up. See if that made a difference.

    So I read up on that and apparently all it was was a redirect to the windows calibrator.

    It's a little bit of both at the moment but that is why we have mods. So we can edit or delete post to keep them on track. The reason we do it is so the next guy who comes along does not have to read our off topic stuff and can get to his problem faster. Just makes it a lot cleaner. :vbthumbsup:
