    I've tried to look everywhere for answers but nothing works. System is updated with the latest updates (10.5.8) This happens with every program I use. Any one has any solutions please?

    When you post a problem like this, it helps a lot if you provide enough information for people to be able to know what's going on. You didn't mention what computer model you're using, what keyboard you're using, what the symptoms are, etc.

    sorry should have been more specific. MBPro July 2007 always worked great never a problem. A week ago it those keys have started not working for no apparent reason. the keys don't work under any circumstances or programs. I don't have hyperspaces installed. hope this better explains the situation.

    If a reboot doesn't fix the problem and you haven't recently installed any keyboard-modifying software, it may be that your keyboard has hardware issues and needs to be replaced.

    Ah. The Konami Code lives :D

    To the OP, yes, it's your keyboard. Take it to Apple, where they will most likely charge nearly $300 to repair it.

    Or, if you're comfortable with screwdrivers and following instructions, you can buy a MacBook Pro keyboard for about $90 and replace it yourself. Up to you.
