Help! Some Macbook Pro keys not working/malfunctioning
I am having problems with some of my keys.. from what I can gather they are u j m ; '
When I press these keys either nothing happens/no letters appear on screen or it spits out a couple of symbols or letters like this: "bcvxz adfgs IORTUY ˙∆˚¬" The ; key will sometimes increase/decrease the sound volume.
Ive opened the show character viewer and it shows that no keys are jammed or anything. (I am using the Australian keyboard if that means anything but I also have the US keyboard checked.. it doesn't make a difference whether only one is checked)
I have been using the character viewer to insert the missing keys otherwise this message would not make much sense.
I haven't spilt anything on the keys and it just seemed to happen randomly when I started using my laptop this morning.
Please help, as yo can iagine this is getting very annoying!

Sounds like a trip to the Apple Store or reseller is on the cards
Sounds like its a issue with the keys response and placement inside, either that or could be a software fault
These things happen, best to take it to Apple and ask to see what is going on. It'l all be sorted there and then
Hope this helps

Unfortunately I don't have time machine or a way to backup everything at this stage.
I just tried the guest account and had the same issues so I think a trip to Apple is in order!
Thanks for your help!
