Also, in another post, you had mentioned the screen on the same computer I'm assuming being messed up. Below is the link if you like! My trackpad was working fine with the usb plugged in up until yesterday. I tried the fridge method to see if I had a swollen battery, did not change. This was also the case for the keyboard. After a few minutes, the mouse left and right button doesn't work.
There's no way this is hardware, the power-option-command-shift buttons all work to quickly turn off the system. Removed them to my desktop and rebooted but it still freeze. The job took 10 minutes to complete. The assumption is that it's a firmware or software problem but not hardware. Some games are hard on laptops as the heavy graphics cause them to overheat.
When i click 5 times on the option key it does not do anything. Open On-Screen Keyboard by clicking the Start button, clicking All Programs, clicking Accessories, clicking Ease of Access, and then clicking On-Screen Keyboard. Turns out the track pad and keyboard went out, but to fix it required the replacement of the whole top aluminum case as well. I found out that I had put Mouse keys on under Universal access so turning them off sorted out my keyboard, but the drag and drop seemed to be a permissions problem. Hi, I seriously suspect my mac to have same symptoms since some of my keys don´t work, I´m just not sure of how to do the above solution, since my english isn´t that good. I am having this exact issue and am curious what to do.
I had a similar problem. Such opinions may not be accurate and they are to be used at your own risk. I tried the command + option + p + r after I shut my MacBook down, and then saw my screen turn this weird shade of aquamarine, and I totally freaked out and turned the power button back on. That fixed it for two days, then suddenly it failed again, this time the entire column: 5, T, G, and B. But I hope it doesn't.
After coming home, my keyboard and trackpad are both unresponsive. I've had a keyboard problem a year ago while trackpad worked. Never been dropped, never been squished, only a few scratches on the front because of sitting in a bag. They don't even work inside the restore menu. It seems like I've looked up every shortcut and I haven't found one that works. I was thinking of overheating the battery but I use a cooling fan external which helps a bit. Apple needs to address this publicly or in a software update.
Miraculously this worked and I was able to hold down the windows key + R during boot to enter recovery mode. They replaced the cable and now everything seems to be working. Everything works as intended now! Once I got the correct version of the cable, everything worked again. Delete recent apps Is the problem a recent one? Hold those keys down until your Mac reboots again and you here the startup chime. I assume I could have turned off bluetooth on the MacBook Air and it would have resolved the problem also. Another thing I tried was restoring the Macbook Pro to a Time Machine point I have one backup 45 days old.
I see that this is still a huge issue with most and I did have success fixing it. I have been having these issues for weeks and Apple is not helping. The build quality of the battery compartment isn't great, so here's hoping it has a long battery life. Hardware problems per Apple 5. Difficult to believe one has to go on an online search to find independent answers to Apple's shortcomings. Just have the right tools, you could find at home depot. Test Results show: No Trouble found! I returned home 4pm and was able to have a fully-functioned laptop until late at night 11pm.
In such case, there is only one thing to do, the distilled water trick. There's no way this is hardware, the power-option-command-shift buttons all work to quickly turn off the system. You will need to hold these keys down simultaneously in step 4. While typing the pointer is scrolling all over my screen. Then one day in September, I opened the lid and the track pad and keyboard were er-responsive. One weird thing that I noticed is that the problem seems that it gets worse with time, before the restore, the trackpad and keypad doesn't work at all, but after the restore, both work intermittently until both reach a point where it doesn't respond at all.
My macbook is relatively new and, for some reason, the numbers and letters won't type. Yeah you gotta have it Thanks guys. The plusses will keep appearing until I press the space bar. I couldn't find any information online about my problem and decide to plug a windows keyboard in my MacBook Air. Do you have a fix for that? After doing a complete restore things go back to normal but that only last 2 days. I had brought my laptop out in the morning.
