Question about Apple M9034LL/A Keyboard

1 Answer

We use Apple Keyboards in our testing centre, but would like to disable the side USB ports, so that students cannot smuggle in answers on their own thumb drives. How do we disable the ports?

Sorry, there's no way I can see to disable any of the USB ports either in software or hardware. How about a third-party keyboard that doesn't have any ports to begin with? Or, you could also physically block the ports... That could get a little pricey at around $10 a port (from what I've seen online), but it certainly seems fairly fool-proof (or at least student-proof!!).
Please rate this solution if you feel it has helped! Thanks, and good luck!!

I bought an old Mac Mini Intel Core 2 Duo, 2 GB Hard Drive, OS X Yosemite, with serial # C07CS2TPDD6H. What adapter cord could I use to connect it to an iBox C1752, TFT LCD Monitor?

That Mac has a hdmi port and a mini display port. The monitor has a saga port. So ether a hdmi-svga. Or miniDisplay port-svga.

Any usb keyboard will work. So any Mac keyboard newer than 12 years should be good, and newer pic keyboards will work. Beware of older keyboards that have round plugs. On macs these were ADB ports. On PC's, they used PS2 (ADB, ps2, usb are all different, you want the flat rectangle USB)

U.S. pc keyboards also have two modifier keys wired different than the U.S. Mac keyboards, but this can be adjusted in the system preferences. Can't say for non U.S. KBs. They are the windows/alt keys. Vs Opt/Command keys. That is, if you are soused to using a Mac, the key that is closest to the spacebar (command key) is applied by the second key over rather than the first. Again, this can be modified in the Sys Prefs.

Enable keyboard

First, make sure it is plugged in. If it is a USB type, try the other USB ports on the computer to see if one or more ports have failed.

Still no luck? Try differen USB ports each time you boot up. During the boot, enter the computer's BIOS or Set Up area (usually pressing DEL, F1 or some other key). Check for setting regarding keyboard and keyboard type. Make sure they are enabled. If nothing works, the keyboard may be broken - not disabled. Try with another keyboard instead.

Usb Power Problem

Hi check in bios if the usb port is not disabled, also try to connect another device to it for example usb stick. If it's working you may need install drivers for your device first.

Error message usb ports force stopped because of too much power

It will still be covered by the warranty, take it to an apple repair centre, they will have Apple hardware diagnostics software that will be able to determine the cause of the fault. Worst case scenario will be they have to replace the logic board.

If you are using some sort of USB hub the number of devices you are connecting to that single port may be drawing too much power. Try to determine how much power each device is drawing then ask at an apple store how much power the USB port can supply.

If it's doing nothing then you have a bad USB port (move it to another USB port) or the USB keyboard is disabled in CMOS (usually hit F2 or Delete button during start up to get to). If the keyboard is working but isn't working correctly, there is something wrong with the keyboard. You probably just need a new keyboard.

You have to go back to your bios setting and re-activate the usb ports, try getting usb lock software to lock the usb ports rather than disabling them.

The usb ports will not work,therefore the mouse nor the keyboard will work

Try the mouse in a computer where the USB ports *DO* work.

It is possible that your system does not have the correct "device-drivers" for the USB ports. Thus, those USB ports seem to be "dead".

Turn the computer off.
Connect a PS/2 keyboard and a PS/2 mouse.
Turn the computer on.
Click Control Panel
Click System
Click Hardware
Click Device Manager
Expand the "USB ports" section of the tree.
Look for "yellow" or "red" marks.
Double-click one of those "problem" devices.
Choose "Reinstall Driver".
If it asks to be able to connect to the Internet, click "yes, this time".
Hopefully, this will install the correct drivers for your USB ports.
