Question about Apple MacBook 13"White /2.0Ghz Intel Core2 Duo White/2GB (2x1gb)/80GB/SuperDrive (Z0DT) Mac Notebook

1 Answer

Row of characters stopped working

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.

SOURCE: cursor skips back into sentece or paragraph

Hello,
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!

My 4th row of keypad is not working except g,h,',caps


Try removing Keyboard connector an reseating it. (4420s - Some scews under battery and possibly 1 near rear of each hinge - remove. Flip unit over and slide Speaker grill panel toward front of unit. There should then be a few screws that hold the keyboard at the top edge 2 or 3. Remove and you should see the connector. )
If this doesn't work you have faulty keyboard.

what is going on with your keyboard is it is in the Fn mode that is usually used for math. You need to find out what is the correct way to reverse this mode, sometimes i find it easy to google the fn key functions and you put in what type of computer you have and then you usualy will get your answer. There is nothing wrong with the keyboard just the mode.

Keyboard will not accept characters. Goes thunk.


Try using an external keyboard in order to get the machine up and running. Then do a system restore to a point where you know the keyboard was functioning correctly. If that doesn't work then try uninstalling the keyboard drivers and do a hardware search. It will automatically pick up the keyboard and reinstall the drivers. If it still doesn't work, then the keyboard needs replacing.

Sounds like a classic problem for a driver/firmware update. get an update here before trying anything else- http://www.palm.com/us/support/downloads/tungstenc/tungstenc_update_30.html If it still doesn't solve it you might need to format it and reinstall everything from scratch. Good luck
