    First of all, we are not here to judge your ability to speak English.


    Now to the point, maybe there is something wrong with the connector that detects when the key is pressed, has anyone been slamming the enter key on this ibook?

    Your English is better than 1/2 the people who post around here, so no worries :p

    As for the key, it sounds like it may be shorting out...if that is the case, a replacement isn't too expensive via ifixit

    Help?

    No one has been even touching the return key except me and I didn't do anything wrong. And even if that's true why does shift+return work?
    I don't want new keyboard because every time I travel I take it with me so I don't want to carry a keyboard too...

    If it's not a software issue, I meant replace the keyboard as in the built-in one, not to carry an external unit.
