    Hi Everyone,

    I just replaced my keyboard on my macbook a1181 with a new one.
    It has a slightly different format. now I can't get the keys to function properly.
    very few will work.
    How can I resolve this issue.

    Thanks,
    Craigw313

    I had to delete a pref file to make the new keyboard work on mine. I think (not 100%) sure it was the file referenced here:

    If you have lion, I think you have to hold the option key to get the the library file you need to delete. I tried to look for the specific instructions I used, but I can't fine it online anymore.
