SOURCE: delete key on macbook pro won't work

you may have inadvertently set up a keyboard short cut on the delete key... go to your system preference app in the dock. Then select keyboard shortcuts... if you select "default" at the bottom of the window it will revert to the factory shortcuts and eliminate any you may have accidentally created...
Hope that solves your delete issue...

SOURCE: My Macbook Pro (Intel) will no eject the CD.

1. Restart the computer. If necessary, use the reset/interrupt button.
2. Immediately after the system startup tone, press and hold the Command-Option-O-F key combination. The computer starts up to a text-only screen, indicating that you are in Open Firmware.
3. At the prompt, type: eject cd
4. Press Return.
5. Type: mac-boot
6. Press Return

Try restarting your computer while holding down the X key. This may force the computer to start up using your Mac OS X system. If it does, release the X key, then open System Preferences and click Startup Disk. Make sure your Mac OS X system is selected. If you are unable to start up using the X key, restart your computer and immediately press and hold the Option key. Release the Option key when icons start to appear in the center of the screen. Select the Mac OS X system disk, then click the forward arrow to continue starting up.
If the above attempts to reselect your Mac OS X startup volume are unsuccessful, try resetting PRAM. Shut down your computer, then turn on the computer and immediately press and hold Command-Option-P-R until you hear the startup sound for the second time. Open System Preferences, click Startup Disk, and select your Mac OS X volume.
Hope this helps. If none of these options fix your problem, bring your computer to an Apple store, they are always very helpful and almost never fail to fix the problem!

Bt don't recignise my email and password

You need to provide more details, specifically:
1) What Mac do you have (Macbook? Macbook Pro? What year?)
2) What version of OS X is on your Mac?
3) What application are you using to check your mail? (Mac Mail? logging into a web page and checking mail in your browser?
AND most importantly:
4) What does "Bt" stand for?

MacBook Pro won't boot at all

It's hard to say without more information. When you say it doesn't boot, does the screen come on at all? (the first thing that shows during a boot attempt is a gray screen). If the screen does come on, what does it show? Also what year is the macbook pro?

Hi i'm selling my lap top (MACBOOK) and would like to erase everything in the computer before it goes out. HOW DO I DO THAT? THANK YOU

hello, they guy that posted above me suggested to reinstall Mac OS X. that obviously only works if you have the original disc. but if you dont, what you could do is to make a new Administrator account and delete the other one. that would get rid of all your user files. if it doesnt then you could delete the rest manually.

My macbook pro makes the startup noise then just stays black

There's a magnetic reed switch in there, to the right of the mousepad. It's activated by a magnet in the screen, so when you close the lid the reed switch closes its circuit and the machine goes into standby. It's common for it to fail. To get your machine to start up again you'll have to remove the problem: open up the case and find that switch. Unplug and remove it and you'll find your problem is solved, although you will of course need to put it to sleep from the Apple menu from then on - it won't do it automatically any more. You can get replacement reed switches but they're not cheap.

Hope that helps!

Master reset mac pro

There are a few ways to do this.
Method 1 Create a new user account, making sure to give the user Admin access. Once you create this new user, log into the new user account and delete the old user. This is the quickest and easiest way(this works best with 10.5, if you're running 10.4 or earlier try method 2.)
Method 2 Take the install disc and reboot your computer with the disk in the drive. On start up, hold the "c" button. Now you can re-install the operating so you can have a clean start. (if you don't have the install dvd, refer to Method 3)
Method 3 Delete all the unnecessary applications, once done create a new user with admin privileges. Log in with this account and delete the old account. This way you won't have any of the programs you don't want and the new user will have factory account settings. As close as you can get to a fresh start.
No matter what method you choose, be sure to back up important information.
