    Hi All,
    My Macbook is brand new but I have been having some trouble with the keyboard. Out of nowhere it seemed the keyboard started to act up. There is something wrong with both the "a" key and the delete button. They aren't working. They continuously redirect my initial strokes and cause my computer to be unresponsive. Some other icon always comes up instead of n "a" or the material being deleted. I did notice that I have that stupid Universal Access thing BUT I had gone ahead and turned off sticky and slow keys. Can someone help me solve this problem? It is a total pain in the ass. Thanks!

    Ah, the word "ass" is not censored. Hmm.

    Anyway, have you looked at the Language & Text preferences and seen, what Input Source (keyboard layout) you have chosen?

    Can you make another account and see, if the same happens there?
