    Hi there,

    Have just switched my Mac on to find the mousepad/clicker and keyboard has stopped responding when running Windows. At the mo I'm using the Mac OS and everything seems to be working fine :s

    Anyone had this problem before? Can anyone help please?

    Happened to me too, but turned out they had just switched themselves off. Push the 'On' button on the right side of your keyboard and trackpad. You may have to wait a few seconds before they begin to work.

    If it was me, I would first try reinstalling my drivers.

    Get you Mac OS DVD, and put that into your drive. Follow the instructions. If your dvd doesn't have the bootcamp drivers, you can download them.
