There is a problem with your audio jack. It thinks that the optical link is plugged in. Look into the jack and you'll see there is a red light for the optical link. Try to clean the jack, if you see and contacts that are recesssed, try to pull them back using a tooth pick. If that fails, the jack needs replacement. Here is an Macbook Repair Guide that shows how to open a Macbook. If you want somebody else to do it for you go to Macbook Repair.

SOURCE: I have mac book with volume keys. I try to switch

I laughed when I saw this (NOT AT YOU, only because I had just finished answering this question for a MacBook Air). Just so you know, this is a VERY common problem among MacBooks. I own a MacBook repair shop and I see it quite a bit. it has even happened to my own MacBook Pro and Standard 2.4 GHZ MacBook. Usually this problem is accompanied by a little red light inside the earphone jack but not always.
Get a can of compressed air (for dusting of computers/electrical components) and attach the small straw that is supplied with the can.
Next, insert the other end of the straw into the EARPHONE jack. No need to jam it in there. Just insert it about 1/4 inch. Now spray a blast of air inside the jack a few times. Each time you do this, TRY THE VOLUME BUTTONS. They will work! This doesn't harm the computer and will not void the warranty. Plus it will only cost you about $3 to fix. It may take a few times but it WILL work. Here is my email if you have further questions and don't forget to vote if when this helps you: i_Patch.securepath@live.com

How to reset mac book key board


Did you do this? Under SYSTEM PREFERENCES click on LANGUAGE & TEXT, then INPUT SOURCES and uncheck the boxes for all but the language you want. (You can pick more than one). Then before you leave, click on the bottom where it says "Show Input Menu in Menu Bar." The Menu Bar will show you the flag from the country whose language you have selected. If you click on that, you will see the other languages you've checked and can change them. Hope this helps.

My mac book will turn on but it wont load up


Clicking sounds are usually the hard disk drive going bad. Replacing the drive is not for the faint of heart on the Mac Books.

I have a mac book and two of the keys have popped off. Can they be put back on and How do I do that?


Placing back the keys is not possible manually except that you stick it, and thats the worst thing you would do. if you have an apple service center nearby, get it serviced by them as they need to open the lower case of the macbook to do that.
Btw is it Macbook or Macbook Pro? Because macbook pro has a unibody which can not easily get the keys back into position if they popped off.

Mac book will not turn on.


Hello,
A flashing folder at startup means that the Mac doesn't recognize your system. This can be either a hardware or software problem. The hardware problem would be the hard drive, and the software the OS.
So these are the steps you should proceed: 1) Check your hard disk by using your install DVD (press the c key at startup), choose your language, go to the utilities menu and hit Disk utility. go to SOS tab and select your hard drive on the left. Click "repair volume" and check what happens.
2) reboot, if it does not recognize the system again, reinstall it using the "archive-install" option
