    Shift key on HP Touchsmart 15t laptop


    Hi, not sure if this is the right place to ask,

    I have a new HP Touchsmart 15t Laptop. It works well except I notice that the shift key can't seem to keep up with me when I let go. For example sometimes when typing I end up with:

    THank you. HEllo. The SHift key sometimes won't de-activate fast enough when I want to type the next letter.

    I thought maybe it is just a matter of me getting used to the keyboard, but after a month or so the problem still comes up. I was wondering if there is some program that can alter the response sensitivity of specific keys.

    Then I wonder if it's the physical mechanism of the key itself. Perhaps a manufacturing flaw. If it's still under warranty you might consider having it looked at.
