    My delete key is not working.

    Not my backspace key, but my delete key.

    The one beside the end key and below the fn key.

    When I click on a file and i want to delete it, nothing happens. I have to Move It To Trash with the mouse.

    Any suggestions?

    Open System Preferences->Language & Text, Input Sources tab and put a check mark in the boxes for Keyboard & Character Viewer, and your Country's flag. Then go back in the main system Preferences and select the Keyboard System Preference pane and in there put a check mark in the box for 'Show Keyboard & Character Viewer in menu bar'.

    Once you do that in the menu bar click on your Country's flag and select "Show Character Viewer". Once it pops up hit the Delete key again and see if the system is registering the Delete key when pressed.

    Also try to Reset Your PRAM to see if that helps.
