    Question Puzzlement with HP laptops.

    My Grandchildren have HP11 G7 Chromebooks, and I have an HP 14" Stream with Windows 10.
    Both the Chromebooks stopped working, shortly after the keyboard printed garbage. I removed the keyboard on one & cleaned the connector ribbons, reassembled. Now it would't boot, dead. Charged the battery, still dead. Got frustrated, & smacked it on the bottom. It has worked ever since. I smacked the second one, did not remove keyboard, & that has worked for 3 months, so far. Recently I bought the HP Stream on Trade Me, cheap, with the same symptoms. Smacked its bottom and it works!
    What is going on?

    Well you're not allowed to smack kids on the backside any more if they misbehave, so why not allow a Computer when it plays up -- It wont go crying and cant complain, and proves a bit of discipline can have a positive effect

    mzee, might try that with this HP lappy.

    BSOD on boot-up and Windoz says it will fix it and re-boot. Yeahh right.

    Won't be putting 11 on this machine!!.

    Worked wonders when on 8.1.

    Will write to Greta and see if she will let us buy a new one along with and electric car.

    lurking.

    ps. lost WIFI last week and windoz managed to re-connect that all by itself, rofl.

    lurks.
