Unfortunately, there was a bluescreen when the camera tried to install. I have not quite a Bad Feeling About That, but a sufficiently mildly uneasy one.
But, when I restarted after the bluescreen, I got sound, which meant that the audio driver was in the whole bucketload... sweet. One less thing to hunt down in all the boiling madness.
Still haven't got IM programs back in and running. If you need private words with me, I'm always at my LJ address, given that I'm a permanent user, yay me.
