    3 mo old MBP, BTO 2.6/4G/250GB. Had problems starting last night. Computer turns on and works except the keyboard doesn't light up or work plus the trackpad is dead a/ the cursor stuck in the top left screen area. Applied all recent updates, reset pram, and was working 2 nights ago. Now this? Plugged in USB mouse and it works fine.

    Help!!!!

    Do you have a Apple store near you or something?

    I would show it to them. They will hopefully repair it.

    I had this same issue last week and I did some research on Apple's Support Discussions and found this topic: http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=1365569. This fixed my issue long enough for me to get through the rest of my classes for the week and drop it off at an Apple Store on the weekend (although it was refused service, but that is another story). Although the Apple "Mac Genuis" said that I needed to get the logic board, keyboard, and topcase (which includes the trackpad) to fix this issue.

    Just dropped mine off, 2.6 GHz / 4 GB / 17", for popping speaker, sticky hinge, sticky trackpad button, and the kicker bad memory. Seems to be a lot of issues with this version MBP. :mad:

    Wow! Good to have seen this thread and that link of yours. Sounds good! I have exactly the same problem with a quite new MBP. After it got fixed for the same problem 3 weeks ago, the problem came back. I went nuts!!! Will try the solution tomorrow.

    mine seized up again but due to the failed installationof the latest keyboard update. Reinstalled it and was back working. Wierd
