again from the laptop...the stupid thing seems to enjoy randomly restarting a read from the cd-rom, which, if it's in the middle of reading, causes the whole damn thing to lock up. if i'm in a patient mood, i can wait about 2 - 5 minutes and it'll come back up, otherwise i have to shutdown, undock the dvd, restart, shutdown, reinstall the dvd, and then restart again. arg! i also had to download netscape because they've set IE to be proprietary to MSN, making it impossible to check my hotmail accounts. *looks at the box sitting across the way* it can always go back...one more call to tech support today, see if they have any other bright ideas...

well, it seems that the tech support guy may have provided me with the proper fix. it seems that there was too much crap eating system resources for my dvd-rom to work properly. this time around, i've gotten it to play for 35 minutes and counting, while the last few times it's only played for about 2 minutes and then crashed. *crosses fingers* i hope it keeps working...

btw, Sleepy Hollow appears to be a pretty good movie, from what i've watched while i'm supposed to be working.

well, it ran through the entirity of Sleepy Hollow without a hitch. I'm just using it as a glorified cd player right this moment while i actually *gasp* do work for work. i'm thinking this is the beginning of a beautiful relationship between my laptop and i. *sigh* it's so pretty too... :-) enough of that! heh heh heh

in all seriousness, it seems that it really was just a lack of system resources. i'm not surprised in the least, btw. now i know a couple of new things to look for when my comp at home is having issues. boy do i feel dumb for not having known to check that before though. that's why they pay me to do basic level tech work and they pay guys like the guy that helped me to do actually tech support stuff. i am kind of amazed that the corporate tech weasel was so helpful though...hmmm...how bizarre...
