    Hello, my backspace and keyboard button arn't working! I am currently on a Mac OS X 10.7. I am typing this from an old keyboard that I had that had a USB plugged into the mac. Not even when I press shift or fn and backspace/space does it work. Just when I push the button, it doesn't work/register. It worked fine yesterday and was just working 1-2 hours ago, then it derped up. I restarted my computer, it worked fine then when I left for a minute and came back it wasn't working with backspace and space. the keyboard and mouse are wireless. Thanks! Please Please help!

    If you've tried restarting moth the machine and the keyboard, and one key/button does not function, then most probably, that key is broken, especially, if the function (backspace/delete) works on other connected keyboards...
