I have my weekly conference call today, and in trying to get the webcam to work, it appears to be locked up with the manufacturer's software. Usually this happens and I reboot, and it will free up. Sometimes two reboots.
However the laptop has been acting up. Even with the new drive, if I reboot it freezes up during the POST screen, getting about 2/3 of the way through and then stopping. I might have to power down and up 10 or 15 times to get it to boot. I'm sure one of these days it won't ever boot.
While I need to get a call in to Toshiba and see what they can do, I'm also scared to reboot today. So no webcam for the call.
