    Greetings,

    I have just began my Toughbook addiction with the purchase of a Second-Hand CF-28 Mk.II from a flea market.

    I am currently running a fresh install WinXP x86 SP3, but I am unable to find any drivers (neither on the forums; most links have expired, nor on the official website).

    I'm mostly interested in the WinXP x86 (32 bit) drivers for my model, but it'd be wonderful if someone also had the Win2000 drivers, since XP isn't really running that well.

    Thank you for your assistance!

    EDIT: Oh, forgot to mention this: I've installed the network driver from the official Intel website, but I am having issues w/ my internet. My status is displayed as "Connected", but I am unable to access any websites through Internet Explorer. Pinging google.com through the command prompt shows me that packets can be sent/received, but that's about it.

    nevermind----not paying attention yet this morning.


    Try mk3 drivers.

    Use 7zip to open the archive then install the drivers.

    Try mk3 drivers

    Anyways, I'll be booting up my CF-28 now and I will begin installing the Win.XP drivers for the Mk.3. I'll provide further info about the situation

    EDIT: Apparently I get an error whenever I try to open the Mk.3 driver .exe files stating that "This machine does NOT support" them.
    Welp.

    Use 7zip to extract the files from the exe package

    They look the same as mine when I bought mine from Heartlands many years ago. Some are printed on white CD's and some are lazered on

    I haven’t bought from them since 2013. I think I bought them. They might be in a box hidden away behind old computers that are unloved

    I have managed to install most of the drivers, thank you for your assistance :).
    Now, I'll have to see if the ethernet issue I had before is fixed. I'll keep you updated.
