    Hi Guys,

    This is a bit of an old one I know. When I turn my Mac on it goes through the boot up process and as it about to come to the desktop image it selects the HD Mac as if I had pressed it with the mouse and then starts the cancel sound bonging away until I press the escape button on the keyboard.

    This normally keeps it at bay. Although on occasion it suddenly selects it again and starts playing the cancel sound again. When I unplug the keyboard it doesn't make that sound at all. I hate the wireless keyboard but wonder if I buy another wired one will it start making the same noise again?

    Has this happened to anyone else?

    Thanks,

    Chris

    grab a usb keyboard from any mac or pc and test it! Surely you can borrow one for 2 minuts to test b4 you go out and buy a new one!

    It was the keyboard

    I bought a new keyboard and it was in fact the keyboard that was the issue and yet looking at the old I can't see any keys sticking at all.
