    Hi all,

    I've got a 13 inch Mid '10 MBP that I'm preparing to sell. I turned it on today and the keyboard seems to be behaving a tad erratically. When I push keys down, they sometimes appear on screen straight away, but very often you have to press a few and then they'll spill out in burts of around 6 letters.

    A couple of days ago I took the battery out to access the trackpad, is it possible I knocked a ribbon cable for the keyboard that could cause an issue like this? Or are there any software fixes I could try? Doesn't seem like the job for an SMC reset.

    Any help appreciated

    Fixed it by resetting PRAM if this happens to anyone else

    Keyboard issues can happen when an SMC reset is needed.
