Welcome to Toughbook talk.

Is this where you got the drivers http://www.panasonic.com/business/Toughbook/computer-support-search-downloads.asp . The model you have is a MK3 and from what I can see from your model number you have a retired SBC (AT&T) model which are known to have non working touchscreen. These were not looked after very good.

Which drivers are you missing
Something you should look into is the recovery disk (3 disk set). The disk are an image of the hdd when it left the factory so no loading of drivers...nothing. About 30-40 minutes and its all done...OS and drivers all loaded :D

Here is a good drive page to check out http://www.toughbookdrivers.com/drivers/cf-29/index.php?dir=CF-29%20MK3/ . He is a member of this forum too.
The antenna is for cdma and evdo modems I guess (Sprint or Verizon)...not much use now...

In Europe / Netherlands, i am able to use the antenna with the Vodafone network. I can send and receive SMS with my CF-28 with the Checknet Utility. Sometimes very handy when you are somewhere without any wifi or internet. Dont know if the CF-29 card is the same as the Cf-28 version.

If you see "Unknown Device" you have to install the hotkey driver for it.

I actually sought out an SBC unit to transplant the antenna and LCD to my MK1 (the newer the MK, the higher NIT of the bulb, generally speaking), and I hooked it up to a sierra 860 gsm/3g card. Worked great.

Many of us are also over at NBR and we've put together a ton of useful resources.

Talk to Sadlmkr about getting your TS replaced or repaired.
If you want to do it yourself talk to techtuff about getting a new TS glass and check out my TS swap howto http://forum.notebookreview.com/panasonic/637315-cf-29-keyboard-touch-screen-glass-swap-walkthrough-pics.html

Good luck!

ROB or mods, if I just did a nono, please let me know.

Looks real good, I.F.

I will take a computer and turn it around in two to three days. $50 minimum, extra for parts if needed. I have about ten used but good touchscreens in bezel but I can probably fix O.P.'s. which costs as I said $50 plus shipping both ways.
Part of this is I will factory restore the drive as this is a crucial part of the process.

Thanks,

Jeff

I left that part out, but I"m a real big proponent of the OEM image CD's..... In lieu of that, I"m sure if the OP looks at those links I posted, they'll find a how to about the proper order of installation of said drivers.
