I  bought a dell inspirion laptop from Costco about a month ago.
The LHS-Ctrl key has a problem.
Sometimes it acts like the Esc key.
It might be a short in some wiring somewhere.
I'll keep the laptop for a few more weeks and then return it.

I'm smart I bought it from Costco, they have a 90day no questions
asked return policy.
