    I am wondering if the CF-29's and 30's heck all the toughbooks have a hardware diagnostics utility built into them like the Dell and HP laptops. I have a pile of about 30-40 toughbooks in the corner of my office and in some file cabinets that I would like to know what is wrong with some of them.

    Yes sir! On boot whilst on the "Panasonic" logo screen before your OS loads just hit Control + F7 :)

    Enjoy!

    At one point I got the following response in regards to my company's shipping times:

    "Product is great and it came faster than premature ejaculation!"

    You're welcome! :p

    I tried this on my CF 29 mk4 and could not get anything but the boot menu. Same results on my CF 51 Mk3LL

    I just tried this on a MK5 CF-29 and it didn't work either.

    Must be only the newer models.

    Thanks
