My 2009 MacBook keyboard won't type letters....just the number keys and symbols work...any advise?. Is this a setting issue. No physical damage. Also the track pad acts like only secondary click works. When I tap or click it activates "secondary" function ?????? wierd.

Hmm...that is quite a pickle there. Have you done the obvious already (restart, shut down) that type of thing? You may also be able to start your computer in safe mode and do a diagnostic. I believe safe mode is activated by holding the "shift" key while your computer boots up. Hopefully we get something figured out for ya :p

Keyboard response

I have done all the basic things...I thought "maybe number lock" but I don't think there is such a thing..I thought it was a setting buy what and why? Doesn't make much sense to me....What would I check in safe mode? Is there a way to set everything back to factory settings? I even logged on as a guest user hoping the setting would change. I connected the bluetooth keyboard and it worked fine but wirelss mouse still had the secondary click issue
