    Hi Folks,

    Just booted up my CD 2.00 ghz Macbook Pro. No recent updates, running 10.5.1, and having booted up trackpad and keyboard are just not responding in any way. Have reset P-RAM, still no joy. I am in the middle of preparing an important presentation, so need my puter! Any thoughts folks? Any fixes???

    Any thoughts massively appreciated! This couldnt have happened at a worse time!!!!

    Have you tested an external keyboard or mouse? Have you checked the usb tree in system profiler? Have you enabled Screen Sharing or Remote Login?

    Thanks for your input, I appreciate it!

    IM writing this on a USB mouse and keyboard attached to a USB hub in my right USB port. Other USB port is taken with my mobile broadband modem.

    USB Tree in profiler is showing:

    USB high speed bus: hub and external mouse and keyboard
    Built in iSight
    USB Bus: Mobile Broadband mobile
    USB BUs: Empty (AppleUSBUHCI), built in USB
    USB Bus: Bluetooth USB host controller
    USB Bus: IR receiver

    Any thoughts? THanks for your input: appreciated!

    i had this issue
    an external kayboard and mouse will work fine
    but in order to get the built in keyboard and trackpad to work, they need to be replaced
    about 3-4 days repair...
    sorry :mad: it sucks
