Hey everyone,
I installed the latest boot camp awhile ago to have windows to play my games (The Sims 2, Roller Coaster Tycoon...etc.) Yesterday I tried to install Ages of Empires 3, and as soon as it started up, the graphics were "glitchy" and it was impossible to make out the terrain. After that, I noticed the keyboard (When I was on Windows XP) wasn't working. I can't even type! The only button that works is the "Eject" button. On Mac though, it works perfectly. Any help/suggestions/ideas?:confused:

Strange...I've had XP SP2 installed on my Core Duo Macbook before and the keyboard worked fine. I even had Vista on there using the XP drivers (before it was officially supported) and the keyboard worked.


Perhaps there's an issue with the newer revision of Macbooks?

I hate to revive a dead thread, but has someone figured out a solution to this problem?

To restate: Sometimes, but not all the time, when I boot up in Windows on my MacBook the keyboard doesn't work. The trackpad works, a USB or bluetooth mouse works, but the keyboard is completely unresponsive to everything. Worse yet, now when I plug in a USB keyboard windows will fail to recognize it.

I tried checking out the hardware settings under the control panel and it looks like Windows doesn't even recognize that the hardware's there.

I'm running XP sp3, on a last gen Macbook (2.16 GHz intel core duo). This is a real pain in the ass, so if you have any ideas I'd love to hear them.

My keyboard always works, including the "special" keys like Brightness/Volume/Etc. And I am running SP3 with Windows XP.
