I shut down and restarted the Leo and Raith computers and now the  
videoscope is working fine.

However, I got a vacuum pump error and was unable to load the sample.

When I chose "Load Sample," a dialog box immediately popped up saying  
"The vacuum in the stage chamber is not ready. Please start pumping  
and, if ready, press RETRY." Pushing retry gives the same error.
