Macbook Keyboard problems

My Macbook keyboard is having problems, it misses first letters, at first I thought it was me, but no, it's the keyboard, it also has issues with capslock and numlock, did anyone else have these problems? If you did please tell me how you got over them.

Thank you.

Using Acer keyboard and Acer Veriton desktop. Keyboard misses out letters I type and doesn't seem able to keep up with me when I am typing. Hence, trying to do a typing test will result in a decent speed...


Try connecting the keyboard to a different laptop.
If the "lag" and the "missing" letters still occur,
the keyboard is the problem.

If not, try a different keyboard with your computer, to see if this "other" keyboard has the same problem. If so, then your computer, not your keyboard, is the problem.

My y key just stopped working on my macbook (I am on my husbands for this message) all other letters are fine. Any idea what I can do to fix this? Thanks, Deb


DEB.

What you can try is hooking up a USB keyboard to try and see if that Y is working now if it workes on a external keyboard then its time to use your apple care to have the keyboard switched out. I know you where looking for a better answer then this but the issue is complexity and time. I want you to diagnose your problem and solve it that way not fix the wroung problem make sense? So if the external keyboard wroks then the mac book keyboard will need repair.

Thanks nad please do be considerate when passing threw fixya to leave feedback and ratings.

Keyboard sometimes misses letters


If its always the same letter then it might have dirty contact.
In that case you can pop the cap off the key and check to see
if the contact is clean. Otherwise get another keyboard to see
if you have problems with that one. If the 2nd keyboard works
ok - then get a new keyboard - they are less than $10....

I cannot writte some letters


Obtain any model of USB keyboard from any other computer and plug it into your MacBook. If you can type those letters from that keyboard, you have a keyboard hardware issue. If you still can't, check System Preferences / International and make sure you are set to use the US keyboard.

My macbook keyboard got wet inside when i was clean the keyboard


pull the battery and disconnect the power first... you don't need it getting corroded inside due to electrical and temp..
Then get a compressed air can... at your local electronics store..
Blow around the h letter... see if you can force dry it a bit.
You may be able to rescue your macbook, if no luck let me know I have a good pdf of how to pull the top off your unit with step by step instructions...

I can't quit a program using apple key and letter Q and more problems


Hop into your system preferences and make sure you don't have anything turned on in Universal Access. If you don't, it's probably a bad corner of your keyboard there.
