    UGh. It's driving me crazy! My delete key just suddenly stops working! Sometimes after 10 minutes or so, it starts working again. I hate it, and I am beginning to hate my new Mac. I tried to speech fix, but it didn't work.

    My new macbook - the delete key (or more precisely backspace) sometimes fails to register: I tap it, and nothing happens, then I tap it again and it works. Maybe I'm not hitting hard enough, but to be honest, it ought to work - I've never had this problem before. It probably only fails to work first time one time in ten, but it's pretty annoying. Anyone else got this?

Check the Speech settings in System Preferences. Your delete key may have been selected as a Listening Key. Disable Speakable Items. See if that helps.

Delete Key Not Working


There's a couple of things you could try. First, try removing the key using this method: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mpwzUlJtVso make sure you turn the laptop off first.
Then clean underneath it with a q-tip and rubbing alcohol. Let it dry and replace the key. If that doesn't work, you may need a new keyboard. You can purchase and replace it yourself if you're up to it. Search iFixit.com for the tutorial on how to replace the keyboard for your specific model.

Which is the best laptop?


This is very subjective, but either the MacBook or MacBook Pro because the MacBook Air is more expensive than the Macbook because it is thinner, but does not outperform it.
Now between the MacBook and MacBook Pro there are so general guidelines: -If price doesn't matter, the MacBook pro is the best Apple laptop because of its RAM and Aluminum body finish, also its Sandy Bridge processors and its new Thunderbult Port.
If price does matter, than there are some general deciding factors:
  • What do you do? If you work on your MacBook pro using PhotoShop and Movie Editors and a lot of software- the MacBook Pro is what you want. Also if you game, the MacBook pro is awesome.
  • Is it just for fun? If you want this laptop just for recreational use and not for games requiring heavy processing power for graphics, just get the MacBook.
Bottom Line: MacBook Pro is the best Mac laptop

Tracking a subject is one thing but, taking an action picture is something else altogether. You will need to set the ISO to a higher number to force the shutter to set a faster speed stop the action.

Make sure your firewall program is not blocking yahoo. If that doesn't do it try this:

How to clean Cache
1. Go to tools on the menu bar in your web broswer
2. Click on Options.
3. Click on Delete Key.
4. Uncheck everything accept for Temperary Internet Files.
5. Click on Delete Button and click on delete.

This is the number one reason why web pages won't load.

Delete key on macbook pro won't work


you may have inadvertently set up a keyboard short cut on the delete key... go to your system preference app in the dock. Then select keyboard shortcuts... if you select "default" at the bottom of the window it will revert to the factory shortcuts and eliminate any you may have accidentally created...
Hope that solves your delete issue...

Hello, hope you can help. Daughter turned on her


It means that the computer can't find the hard drive portion that starts the computer into OS X. It usually indicates a dead hard drive, though sometimes it can be fixed by running your OS X install disk and using the repair function on it. If you don't feel comfortable doing this, find a good repair tech on Craigslist or through your local search.

Use a zoom lens with a wide aperture, best done outdoors with trees behind the subject, it'll blur the background leaving the subject in sharp focus. very flattering especially if you have the subject with their face pointing away from the sun, this'll give you natural looking highlights around the hair line and shoulders and allow you to fill the shadows with a flash.

Keys not working


Does your daughter eat or drink over the computer?

Reset the PRAM, if nothing yet, replace the keyboard. Because thats a string location, which means if you look at it, its a "line" across the keyboard, that usually happens when there has been liquid spillage. If so, the warranty has also been voided and may require paying for labor and parts.
