Hi guys

My new (to me) imac g5 came with its original white keyboard and mouse but for some reason some keys do not type. they are (iklop) has anyone ever seen this before? I have tried this comp with other keyboards and they work just fine. Any help you can give would be appreciated.

Almost always, when a vertical section does not respond, the encoding on the keyboard is not working (the keys are encoded in vertical regions) - and the keyboard is bad. I would expect that other vertical keys (8,9,0, and comma, period and slash) probably don't work either.

Bottom line, there's no way to fix it. Replace the keyboard.
