    Just as of 20 minutes ago, I was able to type, but then for no reason, my computer can't type. The strange thing is that when I use the control click, use the mouse, or use the f keys, it works just fine. I used onyx to clean my computer, which didn't work. I restarted my computer, which didn't work, and I tried to go into the Keyboard/Mouse panel, but then System Preferences quit for no reason.

    I really need help right now because I can't be on my computer because of this crap.

    I did that and it didn't work. But forget about it. Somehow all of a sudden, everything seems fine but just a second ago it wasn't and even doing all that stuff.

    Is your num lock on?

    Agreed. Probably num lock.

    I like turning on others' numlocks. Usually takes them at least 5 minutes to figure out why their computer isn't working.

    Num Lock

    This has been happening to me lately... I loose control of my keyboard. I reboot and then it works again.

    On the Mac Keyboard with the 10 key, where is the num lock button?
