I have a Panasonic toughbook cf-51 running widows xp home. It's strange I can't scroll down on anything it just jumps back to the top. Even when I press F2 during boot and go into set-up I can't choose anything but the top item. I reformatted the drive and re-installed windows and during the windows setup I can't scroll down to even set the clock to the right timezone. When I typed in the computer name it typed backwards. Has anyone experienced this or know what could cause it?

Hi, If it is doing it in the BIOS setup then it is a hardware problem. My first suspect would be the keyboard. You will need to find the service manual. As the easy test is unhook the keyboard and use a USB keyboard to test.

The reason for needing the service manual is that it is easy to break the parts inside the laptop including the keyboard connector.

I wish I could be more help, I've never dealt with toughbook hardware before, Only software issues.

Good Luck
