    Hi, ive had a search around and not really had a massive amount of success, so apologies if Ive missed something obvious!!!

    Treated myself to a CF-195R-55CE

    Can anyone shed some light onto where this originated from and what the spec was?
    It has a UK keyboard (with a £ key!!) - this looks to be an emissive chicklet style, same look and feel as the backlit ones on my CF31's (black keys, grey surround, line on the spacebar, etc), but with no backlight? - odd

    its missing a stylus, is this a digitizer model or just dumb resistive?

    finally, its got vPro and an intel 6235, Bluetooth is shown in (and enabled) in the bios, but in win11 I cant get BT to show up (non tough laptops with centrino install bluetooth natively with windows) - iv tried the panasonic driver pack and the standard intel BT Driver, but nothing. went to pop a BT card from my MK3, but there is no fitting on the WWAN daughtercard for it.

    Thanks
    Matt

    I am pretty sure all those models are resistive touch screen. I would test with a linux boot usb to see if the bluetooth is recognized. I will work out of the box. Windows 11 sill is the same as 10 basically. Did you try loading the driver manually?
    look for these and try a few
    Intel(R) Centrino(R) Advanced-N 6235 Drivers Download. diverscape.com or i look at the hardware info in device manager and search for that specific and load the driver manually

    The UK chiclet keyboards are non backlit versions.

    The R in the 7th digit of the model number is standard touchscreen. Will also show in the windows system page as touch rather than pen and touch.

    You may find that if you select the windows update optional updates, Blue tooth will be in there.

    Thanks for the info, seems odd to have the lovely emissive keyboard and delete the backlight :)

    Managed to get the bluetooth working with the standard intel drivers

    The chiclet CF-19 keyboards are absolute garbage, as in they can't stand water.

    The ones on the 30 and 31 though are waterproof for some bizarre reason.

    is that true?! ive had the chicklet ones on my 32/30's and they have been good with water - well, one wasnt, but you could feel that was old, so assumed the membrane had perished.

    are they really not waterproof? seems bonkers!

    I confirm it's true. I've personally killed 2 of them (19 chicklet) in a shower. And while for the first time it was a surprise for me, the second keyboard failed an intended test :))
