Where can I find driver XY for an older unit?
We do keep all drivers, back to our first Rocky model on our Webserver.
If you can't find it, it may have been moved to the "legacy_models" folder.
Please check the download section.
As soon as Windows has been started the local display is getting dark.
With the hotkey CTRL+ALT+F1 the signal is switched to the external analog monitor. This is also possible when no monitor is connected.
With the hotkey CTRL+ALT+F3 you can switch back to the local monitor of your notebook. To do so, windows has to be started and the user has to be logged on. The hotkeys can be changed or disabled in the grafics properties of the intel grafics driver.
To enter the grafics properties press CTRL+ALT+F12 or press the right mouse button on desktop -> grafics properties... -> hotkeys.
I lost the password for my Windows operating system, can I restore this?
Usually it´s not possible to restore the admin password. When the enduser gets his new roda notebook he must key in the administrator password. Some tools can be found in the internet. But they are mostly not legal. Using such tools may destroy data on the harddisk.
My Rocky / Panther gets warm after a short time.
The components which generate heat (CPU, chipset) are cooled passive. That means that the heat is dissipated to the chassis. Depending on the model and operational demands the device may get warm. This is absolutely normal and is not a failure.
