Default A couple of small issues with hackintosh - 11-25-2009, 09:45 PM

Hey guys, I'm really loving my little hackintosh so far, but I've got a few issues. First one is if I right click an application in the dock to try and quit it or whatever, this happens.
This is what i see when i hold down the right mouse button, as soon as i let go it disappears, obviously it shoudln't disappear and should be over the application, what's going on here?
Second problem is a sticky 's' key on the keyboard, really annoying. An s won't type every time you press the key, it seems to be completely at random if it types or not. Now I'm aware I've voided my warranty by installing OSX on the machine, but what are the options? Do you think dell would repair it, or could I replace the keyboard?
Thanks guys

It doesn't hurt at all to call up Dell support and get the keyboard/fixed repaired. You might want to shoot some compressed air in there and see if there is a crumb or two..or cheetos stuck up there. :P

yeah I think I'll send it back to Dell after my Xmas holidays, I really need it during the holidays as I'm travelling and need to do uni work. Are you sure dell won't be funny about me having OSX installed on it?

Anyone got any ideas on the right click issue?

I had a sticky Q key that was injecting key presses at random.

After talking to Dell support they sent me a replacement keyboard. Did not have to send my Mini in.
