MacBook laptop 3.1 keyboard issue, Leopard OSX

Hello,

Yesterday I had used my laptop without any problems throughout the day, however later that night I had a very strange issue come up. I had shut down the laptop in order to take it to class that evening. When I started it up again @ class, the keyboard would not work. The caps lock light was lit and remained so after I tried to turn it off. The trackpad and the click button below it work, however when I tried to double click on the track pad (I have the feature enabled) it will not work, and only works on the click pad. I can run all programs just fine on the laptop, as well as the internet, however I can not type anything, anywhere. I have had the laptop for less than a year, and this is the first problem I've had. I can't be too upset for that reason, however without the keyboard, I can hardly do anything.
I have taken the battery out and let it rest/set for a good couple of hours, and then put it back in and turned it on. I have also removed the battery, pressed the power button for 15 secs and then put the battery back in and turned it on, only to reach no results. (The tech support guy suggested I try this...neither worked....)
I'm not sure if I had accidently turned on the num lock or pressed some keys to cause this to happen? Regardless, I called the tech center however my warranty did not include the tech phone support to try much else. I currently am no where near a repair center, otherwise I would take it in. However, I do need to use the comp asap. Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you So much!

I too have had Macs for years.  The one you have now I also have.  I have had no problems with it yet.  Whenever I have a problem I just take it to an apple store and the Genious will either fix it or be able to tell you what is wrong.  It doesn't matter if the warranty is valid or not, they will take care of the problem for you.
Sorry I have no other help for you.

Macbook black will not start beyond the initial 'bong'. Blue screen followed by endless spinning gear. PRAM, SMV reset, no go. Safe mode can't complete. With battery or on power adapter same result....


Hello yang2699tlk,
Try this instead of using your Leopard Disc.

  1. Immediately after the "bong" press and hold down "Command + S".
  2. Wait for blinking cursor and then type fsck -y (exactly like that).
  3. If you receive an "Appears to be OK" then type reboot and hit the return key.
  4. If you receive a "Disk has been modified" then repeat the fsck -y command until you get an "Appears to be OK" then type reboot and hit the return key.

This set of commands entered in "Single User Mode" will repair your disk. If this does not work remove the hard drive, plug it into another Mac and transfer your data to a different computer. Then install a new hard drive and reinstall Mac OS X.

Hope this helps, don't forget to vote. Thanks.

Would like a controller for a racing game to be used on a mac book


Any Logitech wheel should be detected by OSX Leopard or Snow Leopard - no drivers needed - in OSX, it's more the game that supports the controller than the OS itself that does.

Blinking file folder with question mark and a DVD is stuck in it


Hello, The blinking file folder with the question mark can happen when the computer doesn't "see" your System. It can be caused by a faulty hard drive, or by a damaged operating system. You can try to reboot the mac, hold the mouse button during 20 seconds to eject the CD, then insert you installation DVD (leopard). Reboot the Mac again, and hold the "C" key. Select english, the go to the tools menu, and Disk Utility. Go to the SOS tab, select your drive and click "repair". If something red appears, it means that it has found something wrong on your hard drive. Best regards
