Windows 7: HP Laptop key popped out : (

Windows 7 baby ! : D
HP Laptop key popped out : (

Hey guys

I've got a second issue now with my new HP Pavilion dv-7 laptop computer that I bought last week. The first was problem entering sleep mode. Now the second issue is that this morning I was typing on my keyboard and the bottom arrow laptop key popped out, while I pressed on it !

damn, I heard that HP laptops were built to last ! but I thought mine would be fine.

Any ideas how to pop it back in.

Check out the quick video demonstrating what I'm experiencing.

Thanks any help would be greatly appreciated.


Just so you know it's an HP Pavilion dv7 4054ca

And I take good care of everything I own it's not like I'm abusive to my things !

Actually I was able to pop it back into place by pressing on it while it's in place and it seems fine for now.

But I thought HP laptops were top of the line quality ! Why do they have to make everything in China ? why do people who get paid crap money make our stuff ?

See the other issue I'm experiencing :

your gonna need a Hammer, drill and some nails...

Lets put it this way. You make them in the USA and sell them to the Chinese. A lost cause isn't it!

BTW, who ever told you HP was top of the line was mistaken. My dad actually works at one of the HP productions plants. Not a single piece of hardware they actually use are made by HP. All the computers/servers are IBM or Lenovo, and all the printers are Kodak. Apparently, even HP doesn't have a high opinion of their products.

I thought I had these hidden or perhaps they're issued under new KBs; I'll have to look but the descriptions are the familiar "improve your update to Windows versions experience". :confused:
