HP 8710w quick launch bar opens several calculators

I have a HP 8710w laptop running XP Professional.  Sporadically the quick launch bar will "freak out" and open over a hundred calculators in a matter of seconds, the volume control bar will lower and raise on its own and the HP support center opens.  The only solution I have been able to find on the web so far is to reinstall the quick launch bar and remove the battery for 5 minutes.

This seems to be a hardware fault known to HP - I would suggest that you raise a support case with HP -

8710 models seems to have this problem

Go through this case.

Yes, it is still under warranty.  I have contacted their support and they have suggested a solution of reinstalling some drivers.  If it doesn't work they will replace the hardware.

Thank you for your help!
