I think the title is actually the best I could do to describe my issue. Every few months on average since I bought it last August, my Asus T300 laptop suddenly starts to "shudder" (I can hear and feel a vibration) and that pops the Windows 8 Start Menu. It happens one to three or four times in a row, so it switches rapidly between the Start Menu and the desktop. And this lasts for a dozen minutes to half an hour. During this time I can basically do nothing, since the Start menu will constantly bother me whatever I am doing.

Here is a video explaining better than a thousand words, and I assure you I'm touching NOTHING :

I don't know how to use my warranty, because if I show my PC to the after sales service they are never gonna believe me since it works perfectly fine 99% of the time, the issue randomly happening only once or twice every couple of weeks for some reason.


What I find really odd is the shudder, I never saw my laptop using this vibration feature otherwise, so maybe this problem is actually a windows 8 functionality I didn't know about (like "do this to pop up the Start menu any time") ?
