Well, I have three Toshiba laptops, not just the one, that I bought a
little while ago when trying to find one for some OLDCARD work I was
doing. One is a really old one that had the same model number as a
newer one (turned out to be a 82365B pcic bridge chip). One is a
parts machine for sure (but has the 95B in it). The last One is the
one we're trying to fix with a disk caddy. However, even so, it would
be good to get another, possibly working one. I'm hoping the parts
that you send get me to having a good, working one, but I can't be
100% sure that it will :-(.
