The modem went out on my Toshiba L505 S-6946. It is being sent back to Toshiba to be repaired. I had programs that would go non-responsive. Is it possible for a bad modem to affect the programs in a laptop?

What kind of programs do you have in mind? Examples?

In that case...

Is it possible for a bad modem to affect the programs in a laptop?

I'd say no.

That was included in the service request.
Any ideas what could be causing the issue with the L505? Just trying to gain some knowledge from someone who knows more that I.

It's really hard to say without getting more info.
Program opening issues can be caused by corrupted system files, corrupted program files, infections, hardware problems (hard drive, RAM).....take your pick :)

Well I know I had no infections. Just two days before I had sent several logs to Kaspersky and I recieved a message from them that I was clean. Sorry I do not have any more info to give you at this point; all I know is what was happening. Maybe Toshiba can figure it out.
