If it has a warranty still. Send it back, to the company. I had a same problem with Asus. Could be the windows system scrooving it up. I try first with a beta windows 7. The camera was upside down, the keyboard was typing whatewer it want to, I got a windows XP on. Work perfectly, exept the keyboard. The company chanched for me. I didn't like this laptop, from the first time. I had three before, with no problem
, so I just used for travel, or if I was sick for sitting, near my computer. Finally I was sold it. Get one android tablet, same function less problem, less weight. Has a lots of program for it.
