    I have a plea for help. I have an Alu Macbook (the first, and last, of its kind :rolleyes:) and a wireless alu keyboard/mighty mouse/24' LED LCD screen. I was updating the keyboard with new software from Software Update, rebooted, and began the process of updating the keyboard software. However, the firmware update seemed to hang, and eventually (a *long* time later), I had to kill the program.

    Anyway, long story short, I appear to have toasted my wireless alu keyboard. My macbook can no longer find it on bluetooth, which will make re-applying any software difficult. I've checked the batteries, and they're ok. Strangely, if I press a key on the keyboard, the computer makes that brarp noise indicating that I've pressed the wrong button...

    Any ideas on what I could do to bring my poor bricked keyboard back to life? Anyone had any similar stories?

    Thanks in advance!

    Behind you...!
    Three things to try.

    Turn bluetooth on and off in your MBP.
    Take batteries out, then put back in, in the keyboard.
    Restart MBP.

    OC Baby!
    and forth - change the batteries to new ones.
