    my aluminium imac keyboard has suddenly begun to miss keys, the E,P,D,C and both the back and spacebar keys are completely dead.

    I wasn't using it at the time but each key supposedly went one after each other in under thirty minutes, i've checked mouse keys and speech settings as well as removing keys to clean underneath but they weren't sticky to begin with.

    sorry for the lack of detail using the onscreen keyboard takes quite a while to type coherantly, thank you to anyone who can offer any help.

    Have you tried with another computer? Is the computer still under warranty?

    (sorry but I don't hav* th* l*ttr that com*s aft*r d)

    Two k*ys won't work. Th* on* aft*r d and numb*r aft*r 2. Th*y both just stopp*d working. Is it worth taking th* k*yboard apart, or should I just cut my loss*s and buy a n*w on*?
    If you sugg*st taking it apart, what should I look for or do?

    This is for a n*w*r m*tal board that cam* with my imac. It is wir*d. Bought it in April or May.

    TIA

    Normally I'd say it's worthwhile, but these aluminium things are so bloody inconvenient I wouldn't bother. However, it should still be covered by warranty, so have Apple take a look at it.

    That message of yours looks pretty funny, though. :D
