Keyboard not working - at all
Whilst I was away my Macboob died. I am told it made a loud buzzing noise and then completely died and wouldn't turn back on.
Having looked through this site, I decided to open it up and re-seat the RAM, clean all the dust out etc, just very simple stuff, and certainly haven't got further into the guts than that (I did try, but the hard drive and fan screws were stuck tight, and I didn't want to damage the heads trying to undo them).
I have managed to get the Macbook fired up, and everything seems to work with the exception of the keyboard. Have been able to use it via an apple wireless keyboard, but every now and then I get a persistent beeping noise, as if a key is being pressed down. I can clear this by pressing a key gently, normally around the 3,4,E,R and T keys. Occasionaly if on say a text entry page I get a stream of 3's and E's but no other keys seem to work! All the backlighting to the keys works and the keyboard connector on the logic board seems to be in place securely.
So really just wondering if anyone has any thoughts. I know it sounds like water damage, but I have been promised beyond belief that no water was spilt on it when it died. I am going to take it to apple in a couple of weeks when I am next in town. Until then, have been wondering if it will do any harm to disconnect the keyboard connector to save the random key presses, which seem to cause system slow downs until i find the right key to cancel it.
Hope I make sense and thanks in advance
Is this a good question?
