    Thanks Shawn. I did copy the number off them so I will see what I can find.
    What Toughbook is the one you are showing? It looks like it has more memory in it than a CF-28? The memory for the 28 is right under the main battery.

    This is the battery I just ordered from France but I would like one that I could get quicker and it might come it quick??

    HELP
    I think I am going to need little help/advice here guys?
    I have the new battery for the BIOS so I was going to remove the 9 screws + the one for the handle on the rear??
    I also wanted to remove the floppy drive so I could install my CD rom drive but the MP leaver is not in the correct position to push it out like my old 28 is? Did some dummy just shove the floppy drive in there?? I can only move the leaver a tiny bit so it is a no go.
    I am hoping after removing the back I can release it?

    What can you tell me if you may have had the problem before??

    I never actually touched a CF 28 so I can not be of much help.

    Sheepman may know.

    Sounds like the leaver is stuck or just has not been used much. If I am right you can take the base off and get to it.
    My first Toughbook was a 28 which I still have but do you think I can find it :mad:. I packed it up a few years ago and put it somewhere just not sure where or I would check it out for you.

    I made a wire hook one time. Was that a 29 or 28?
    I think it's in the saddle shop.

    First of all are you sliding the slider with nine dots towards the center of the 28? Sorry have to ask.

    I just made another wire.
    Look at the bottom of the DVD caddy....the mechanism in the 28 pushes that up.

    O_____________________________l hook looks like this. About four inches of heavy wire (stiff) with el in one end and ring in the other. The ring and L line up so you know when it's turned. Light clothes hanger size.

    The trick is to open the caddy enough for a hand hold.
    Then slide the wire under the caddy and twist to lever the plastic catch on the caddy! UP and jerk that puppy out of there.

    Practice with the DVD first to figure out distance and such.

    Clear as mud?
