Sometimes dust, lint, hair can cause the keys not to work. One single kitty hair from my cat caused my W key to not work until i took it off... Try blowing some spray air in and around the keyboard. The keys aren't hard to pop off clean underneath, but you have to be careful and use a certain tool.

Bad keypads macbook pro 17


First, try plugging in any USB keyboard to your laptop to try the "problem keys" be sure it's just your laptop's built-in keyboard that's messed up.

PowerbookMedic.com sells the built-in keyboard that goes in your 17" MacBook Pro for about $85. That will probably take care of the problem, but check iFixit.com for a guide (with pictures) on how to replace the keyboard, to assess whether you're comfortable undertaking the task.

I'm assuming you mean it doesn't appear in Finder. Open up disk utility and it should appear there if you say the MacBook is providing power to the hard drive light. You may have to reformat or reset your Mac if you want it in finder

Does apple poewerbook g4 have webcam installed


No. You gots to get a Macbook or MacBook Pro for the built in web cam.
You can buy a Mac Ally web cam and clip it on the top of the powerbook for a web cam, but it looks odd in contrast to the stream lined architecture of the Power Book.

Software Update program not working


Some updates are intended ONLY for Macs running on PowerPC processors, while others are ONLY for the Intel processor. Most of them are Universal Updates for both processor families. Don't dispair, and read on the Apple website the detail for the updates issued (about weekly on Tuesday) to see if the update applies to your platform.

Can I use an Apple M7649 Studio Display with a MacBook Pro


Do you have the black unibody Macbook Pro that was just released, or the silver model?

Since the display is DVI, it will directly hook up to the silver model. If you have the new model, you need a mini DVI to DVI adapter.
