    This CF-C2 is a C2AKFZGLM 1.8 GHZ 8 G ram & 128SSD

    It came with Windows Pro 8 but has windows 10 installed.

    It locks up inadvertently while browsing on line using Edge or Explorer.

    I can't seem to find a driver to support this build & windows 10? That's the only advise I received to fix the problem (update the driver)

    Will this unit run on windows 7 or should it only be Win 8?

    Any help is appreciated ~

    It will run win7.
    Use an OEM version install and it will self activate using the win8 key in the BIOS.

    Do you happen to know what WLAN card is installed.

    My Intel 8260 gets tired and shuts down after several hours. Cycling the computer off/on restores the wireless.

    Thanks ~ & yes I have just started to use chrome.

    The time frame she locks up is not consistent. I am like likely to go to windows 7/ as I want to run xp mode.

    I just have to either get a eternal cd or a docking station~

    Thanks!

    Chrome or Firefox although I don't like the latest Firefox. But I just installed Linux on this laptop so Chromium.:D

    Hey Jeff, your CF-30's made it to the Philippines.

    Went to install win 7 from a docking station.
    Shortly into the instalation it wanted drivers.

    What way do I apply drivers from the panasonic web site?
    Thanks

    Are you using a USB drive to install? If so use the USB 2 port and it will work. USB 3 will ask for drivers. If you're using a CD it's a bios setting. Sorry but I'm having brain fade at the moment so someone else will explain.
