HP laptop annoyances!!
    #3554892 - 12/29/04 12:06 AM (13 years, 2 months ago)

I have a practically brand new(bought brand new a month ago) HP pavilion Zv5000 laptop. It works great except for one VERY annoying problem. Sometimes when I am on the internet and in Internet Explorer, I will press my right shift key to make a letter capitalized and the computer views this key press as the equivalent of "back". So, internet explorer goes back to the last web page I was on(much like if you pressed the "backspace" button). Why the fuck does it do this? Is there anyway to stop it? It only does it some of the time.

I don't want to call HP technical support, because like every major tech company, they have moved their tech support to India. So, I always get someone on HP tech support who can barely speak English. I have stopped calling them to ask questions. They can't understand me and I can't understand them.

I have a compaq laptop (basically HP) and i used thier "online support". I was amazed that the minute i logged on, a rep was able to talk to me via instant messege. They weren't able to help me because compaqs are total POSes but they really tried to help and i thought that was pretty cool because i didnt have to wait on hold or anything.
