My laptop won't burn CDS, everytime I put a blank CD in every burner application freezes until I open the CD tray!

I'd try updating the cd rom firmware, check the device manager to see which one you've got, before that though try just uninstalling it and rebooting the computer and then burning.

Also clean the laser with a dry q-tip and finally give imgburn a shot.

Let me know if you have any other questions or need specifics.

Webcam freezing

Try reinstalling the device driver. Right click on my computer and go to device manager. Try to rollback/update first. If this doesn't work, uninstall the driver and restart the computer. It should automatically reinstall. If it doesnt, go to the HP website and download the driver automatically.
