Solved! Go to Solution.

This Firmware Upgrade did not help. I still have the problems particularly with the WIFI Connection.
It is nessesarry to give us a tool to completely inactivate the concerned Quick Launch Buttons.
End the HP processes (Task Manager) doesn't really help.

Nothing personnal againt the HP support, but I'm really angry with designers.
It's one of the most fail in last decade industry product design.
And there is no solution.... A pity...
No more HP products.
