Question about Apple MacBook 13"White /2.0Ghz Intel Core2 Duo White/2GB (2x1gb)/80GB/SuperDrive (Z0DT) Mac Notebook
The keyboard worked fine. Then the middle row of characters ('a, s, d, f, g...etc.') stopped working. The final two characters on the right (:; and '" still work). The other keys on that line mentioned above don't advance the cursor. They don't seem connected to the computer at all. The rest is still working fine.
Sometimes the ribbon connector becomes disconnected from the connector on the motherboard. You can fix it by removing the connector inserting a slim piece of plastic and reinserting the connector.

Usually it is just from your hand/thumb touching the touchpad and registering as a single-click causing the cursor to jump back. This is a well known issue with the MacAir due to size/design of the machine and the sensitivity of the trackpad. Many people have found it to be resolved by turning off the "touch to tap" feature, however it is annoying when you need that. Hope this helps you! Happy Hollidays!

Hi there , this might be the ribbon cable connecting the keyboard to the laptop , lay the screen flat , look at the left hand side of the lap top , there is a strip you can lift up , where the power switch is. lift the strip up , you will now see the two screws holding the keyboard down, unscrew them , slide the keyboard up slowly and lift , gentaly you will now see the small riben cable, lift the small black catch , then reseat the cable , push the catch back, and reseat the keyboard. now retry the keyboard ...
