comment Laptop touchscreen hypersensitive to electromagnetic interference
I haven't gotten any effect from doing that specifically. But on a related note, after the problem happens but starts clearing up, I can consistently aggravate it simply by folding the screeb forward. This action doesn't normally have an effect. It is only after having the issue then it begins clearing up on its own.

comment Laptop touchscreen hypersensitive to electromagnetic interference
No, once I told them that the external monitor works then they told me it means the video adapter is okay. I'm all for getting "satisfaction" from Dell. In fact, I want to increase the chances of that actually happening. They are so clueless about this issue, and need any parts for my computer to be shipped from abroad, so I've found it necessary to be more proactive.

Already tried that. But unfortunately, "demanding satisfaction" is too vague. They were about to send out a repair guy to replace a faulty video card. But I've since confirmed that the video card is working fine.

Dell insists it's not a loose cable. Anyway, that wouldn't explain the correlation to time and place. As I mentioned, I already tried a UPS and anyway, the problem even happens without plugging in the machine. I already have provided the pictures to Dell and, as I said, they don't have a clue. I can't ask them to repair it when it's not clear what part, if any, needs to be replaced. The screen works fine more than half the time.

comment Why does Word 2010 create such huge PDF files?
I don't believe this is the reason either. I've noticed the same bloat with docs containing no images.

comment Using OEM disks to install Windows 7 partition on Windows 8 laptop
Thanks but this doesn't answer my question since I do not want to disturb the Windows 8 partition. If wiping turns out to be necessary, then I'd instead prefer buying a cheap Windows 7 machine to test on.
