Panasonic Toughbook CF-51 shutting down

\015 I have a Panasonic Toughbook CF-51. It fell off the couch & now it begins to boot up and within 30 seconds shuts down. I've been told it needs an inverter board, but can't find one anywhere online. Anyone familiar with this issue? Thanks for any help. Sue, FL\015

Sue, it's not the inverter board. People who don't really know much\015\012about laptops will often diagnose them incorrectly, especially computer\015\012repair shops. The problem you're experiencing is most likely related\015\012to your motherboard. Unfortunately the most expensive part to replace on most laptops.

Your best bet is to probably just have any important files from the laptop extracted by a repair shop and then selling the computer "As-IS" on ebay. Or you could try another local repair shop to take a look at it. I wouldn't pay any money for a diagnostics since it would take most techs about 5-10 minutes to confirm what I just typed.
Laptops Shut-Down when the unit Over-Heats.
\012Panasonic Toughbooks are no exception.
\012If the FAN is potentially Blocked with DUST or
\012the Fall caused the FAN to FAIL, then that would explain
\012the Shut-Down. Try blowing out the dust from the
\012back or rear-side of the Toughbook. Please also take out
\012the removable CD-ROM drive and the battery pack.
\012This will allow the dust to escape by the cavities or holes
\012created when there is no optical drive or battery pack.
\012Use a compressor instead of those cans of compressed air.
\012Blow also through the cavities. Use short bursts of air rather
\012long prolonged air blasts.
\012Finally, if this does not work, you should be able to purchase
\012a replacement CF51 (without Hard Drive or Battery Pack)
\012for less than $75 and then transfer all the removable parts
\012from the old unit to the replacement unit.
\012Good Luck.
