    Hi there,

    I am repairing a macbook for a friend and i am hoping somene here can help me. When typing on the macbook, certain keys when pressed will produce an extra letter, for instance when i press the "m" key it does a "v" as well so pressing m comes out as mv. It also does this when pressing the "r" key, it produces "ru". I dont know wether this could simply mean the keyboard needs replaced, or maybe a software problem that can be easily sorted. Has anyone else ever had this sort of problem?

    Thanks in advance!

    I'd try a fresh install of Mac, If that doesn't work, might want to see Apple about it :D

    When I once spilled a little bit of water on my MacBook, it did the same thing. I ended up having to replace the top case with a new one.
