2) Display: Suddenly, the screen would go dim and lots of colours all over. This would happen any time...don't specifically remember the conditions. I updated the graphics from a link sent by support and the frequency of occurence is much lower now, though not zero.

...4) Keyboard: Usage of CTRL+SHIFT: Try doing it to select not a full sentence and not a few letters in a word but three or four words in a sentence. You can't. It stops after the first word. Support told me in early March that it is a BIOS issue to be resolved with the next BIOS update.
5) BIOS Upgrade: And this time I got really pissed. I checked last night to find a new BIOS posted. Very happy that my work would be smoother with CTRL+SHIFT. Hell no. I downloaded the file and installed exactly as instructed. The computer froze but I thought these things take time, so I left it...for A FEW HOURS...it still remained frozen. I had to remove the battery and then the ac mains to switch off the machine which had heated up like hell. I restarted the machine...luckily it was working all right as before. But what happened to the BIOS? The website has the audacity to show the status as a bright green tick-mark.
