    I'm wondering if anyone else has this happen to them.

    I have an Apple USB Keyboard which I have been using on my PC for a few months now. Yesterday the left Ctrl, Alt/Option and Apple keys decided to not work, the same for the spacebar.

    I have tried it on my iBook and those keys do not work on it either.

    I do suspect my PC has developed a USB power problem (which seems to be from a power surge a few months ago), but the keyboard has been fine until today.

    Note that I don't want any solutions for my PC problem, but I want to try and fiqure out how to get those keys working again. I have even tried removing and cleaning that bottom row of keys.

    I have a USB keyboard as well. Just bought it a month ago. I almost didn't buy it because in the Apple Discussion Forums there were a lot of people saying Apple's keyboards have a very short life. I like how it feels but am expecting to replace it within a year or so...
