    I just got a MBP and for some reason the S key doesnt work right.
    It only works when I press Shift and during start up when I type in my password. I could've sworn it worked before. And I have to copy and paste that letter every time. Is there anything I can do? Because other than that this baby' s perfect.

    Take it back, they will replace your top casing (keyboard, trackpad, etc).

    Nothing you can do really.

    My blackbook had that problem, n wasn't really working and all you can do is bring it back.

    If it works when typing the password then it is not a hardware issue. It would be software.

    Remove ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.UniversalAccess.plist to the desktop and restart. That controls the input and output settings for the user account.

    I tried that and it didn't work. It only workS when Shift iS preSSed.


    EDIT:
    I just figured out why it didn't work. I had S set as a key for the speech recognition thing. Whoops.:D

    O and if your laptop is under warranty, they won't charge for it!
