MacBook :: 2.4 Keyboard/Trackpad, - External Keyboard/Mouse Not Working

Nov 13, 2009

So my friend was using his MacBook and went to do something else. He came back and the screen was black, he hit space and nothing, tried the trackpad and nothing. He restarted by holding the Power button, and it go to the log-in screen, but he can't type anything, or use the trackpad. He has tired restarting several times and no luck. He also tried an external Keyboard/Mouse and that didn't work.

He did plug in a Flash drive and the light turned on, so the USB ports are at least getting power, but nothing is working.

MacBook Air :: Trackpad And Keyboard Not Working?

Jun 26, 2014

I have a macbook air which trackpad and keyboard doesn't work.

I have searched the forums and tried the most. Here is a list SMC-ResetPRAM-resetCompletely Clean install of 10.9.3 (ongoing)Repaired permissionsChecked if trackpad settings were wrongClose-Open lid to see if that did the trick I have maybe forgotten something, but as you can see I have tried a lot.It all began after the computer being on for over 1 day.When in the login area the OS tells me that no keyboard was found after like 2-3 minutes. Other external devices works just fine. The funny thing is however, the keyboard works when starting up. It's possible to do commands, and if I hold option down to select a start disk the keyboard works here (I can use the arrows to select a startdisc), and when the computer is asleep I can wake it up by pressing the trackpad. So..

OS X :: MacBook Pro - Loud Fan And Keyboard / Trackpad Not Working

Jan 4, 2011

Basically I was using my Mac and it froze so I closed the lid. When I opened it again the fan was much louder than normal. It was still frozen and wouldn't respond so I switched it off from the power button. Then I turned it back on, but it wouldn't boot past the grey screen and the fan was still loud. I read some threads here and it said to boot it in safe mode using Shift, I did that and now I'm at the log in screen. However now the keyboard and trackpad aren't responding and the fan is still loud. If I get an external usb mouse and keyboard, any advice on what to do from there?

MacBook Air :: Trackpad, Keyboard USB Port Not Working?

Dec 21, 2008

I have a 2 Gen MBA and today suddenly the keyboard, trackpad and even the USB port stopped working, I tried connect an external mouse but it didn't work, even other USB devices are not working !! I tried the display port it is fine, but I am not sure about the audio port. I tried the SMC reset but it did me no good.

I had bought the MBA from Apple UK but currently I am in INDIA for my winter break from UNI. I don't have my OSX discs at the moment they are back in UK, I tried calling the Applecare but they are closed being a Sunday, and I don't want the local Apple Authorised Service center to touch my air as I don't trust them (The appointment of these repair centers in INDIA is not upto the highest standards !)

The keyboard and the trackpad are working in the Apple hardware test, I was able to move around the cursor and even use the keyboard to select the various options, so I believe the hardware is fine.

So any suggestions what can I do in the meantime, I will call Apple Care in UK tomorrow. I am not back in the UK till the 26th January.

OS X :: MacBook Trackpad And Keyboard Not Working On Restart?

Jan 10, 2009

I was just using my Macbook normally and it came up with an error like IP was in use or something with the red exclamation mark. The my internet stopped working so I just restarted it. Now my Macbook is literally not working? I can turn it on but when I get to the login screen, my mouse or keyboard are not working! So all I can do is hold the power button to turn off. It appears OSX is still running fine though because the screen dims after a while and the flashing | in the name input bar is still flashing.

MacBook Pro :: Unibody Trackpad And Keyboard Not Working ?

Mar 25, 2009

For some reason i purchased this three weeks ago. Everything was working fine. However today i guess i closed the lid and then when i opened it, the computer didn't wake up. So i just held the power button and restarted. It booted into Leopard fine but now the trackpad and keyboard don't work....

The trackpad and keyboard seem to be fine when i hold the option key too choose what volume to boot from. It seems for some reason the keyboard and trackpad lose its function once it boots into leopard.

I looked up forums and tried numerous things like VRAM wipes, SMC reset, tried external keyboard and mouse and they only work up until it actually boots into the leopard OS. Tried going through a hub and same problem.

MacBook :: Magic Trackpad And Keyboard Not Working

Feb 11, 2012

I bought my Mackbook 8 months ago and I've been very careful with it, I don't use it much and It has never fallen but despite it all when I turned it on a few days ago the keyboard was completely unfunctional and today, when I was hoping it wasn't something permanent I found out that the trackpad isn't working either.

IMac :: What Keyboard/mouse/trackpad For Use With TV

Apr 2, 2009

I just got my new $599 Mac Mini hooked up tonight. Wow. This thing is fast considering I still have only the 1GB of memory in it. For regular stuff, it feels as fast as my 2.4 GHZ iMac with 4GB of memory and normal speed hard drive.

Anyway, it works pretty good with my TV.

However, what type of keyboard or mouse do you recommend? Right now I'm having to use my powerbook to control it, using teleport along with a wired keyboard and mouse plugged into the back, hidden, just so it doesn't complain about not having one.

I don't know if I should go with the two Apple products, keyboard and mouse.

OR should I get a keyboard with a built in trackpad, since I will mainly be using it on the couch. What do you recommend?

Laptops :: MacBook Trackpad And Keyboard Not Working After Disassembly

Feb 8, 2010

I disassembled my MacBook to repair a jammed optical drive. I have two problems: the first is while testing that the optical drive now worked (I tested it will it was still partially disassembled, and it did work) I noticed the track pad and keyboard were not functioning. Obviously the power button works, and the machine booted fine, but the trackpad and the keyboard don't work at all. I had to plug a mouse in to move the pointer. I should note that yes, the trackpad cable was indeed firmly plugged in.

However, at one point when trying to reassemble the top case, the trackpad cable detached from the plastic piece that plugs it into the logic board. I removed the plastic piece, slid it back into place over the wires of the cable and then plugged it back in. So I'm wondering if this means I need a new trackpad cable? My second problem is that upon full reassembly, the machine will not turn on. The power button doesn't work when the top case is firmly back in place and the rest of the machine reassembled. I have no idea what might be causing this.

MacBook Pro :: Keyboard And Trackpad Not Working When The Battery Is In The Laptop

Oct 13, 2010

About a month ago my Macbook Pro keyboard and trackpad stopped working when the battery was in the laptop. However, when I take the battery out and keep it plugged into an wall outlet, there are no problems. A USB external mouse/keyboard work fine, but its not easy to bring them everywhere I need my laptop. This may not be relevant, but when the mouse and trackpad are not working, the screen still dims when I place my hands over the speakers. I have bought a new battery, hoping that was the problem, but it made no difference. I can't check to see if my software is updated, because my software update is also functioning incorrectly. It takes an average of 5 hours for the software update to search, and it always comes up with "no available updates."

OS X :: MacBook Trackpad And Keyboard Stopped Working Suddenly

Feb 10, 2009

It seems that during my afternoon class, I shut down my macbook and then when I went to use it about 10 minutes later the keyboard nor the trackpad works. Now the keyboard/trackpad is not defective as it works via the OSX install cd and it works in Windows Vista (dual booted) When ever I start up OSX it just comes up and the mouse is in the upper left hand corner, and the keyboard doesn't work at all. I have tried a pram reset by pressing command + option + p + r and that did nothing. When I am in OSX the only way to get out is to hold down the power button till the macbook turns off. What else could be wrong is there anything I can do, the nearest Apple store is about 80 miles away so I am trying to avoid that at this point as it seems like a software issue.

MacBook :: Trackpad And Keyboard Not Working After Disassembly/reassembly?

Feb 8, 2010

I'm a newbie to this forum and haven't been able to find a solution to my specific problem(s) after searching the archives. I disassembled my 1st generation MacBook to repair a jammed optical drive. Well, now I have two new problems:

The first is while testing my repaired optical drive (I tested it while the laptop was still partially disassembled, and the optical drive does now work) I noticed the track pad and keyboard were not functioning. Obviously the power button works, and the machine booted fine, but the trackpad and the entire keyboard don't work at all. I had to plug a mouse in to move the pointer. I should note that yes, the trackpad cable was indeed firmly plugged in. *However, at one point while trying to reassemble the top case, the trackpad cable detached from the plastic piece that plugs it into the logic board. I removed the plastic piece, slid it back into place over the wires of the trackpad cable and then plugged it back in to the logic board. So I'm wondering if this means I now need a new trackpad cable?

The second problem is that upon full reassembly, the machine will not turn on. The power button simply doesn't work when the top case is firmly back in place and the rest of the machine (screws, l-bracket, battery, etc.) is completely reassembled. I have no idea what might be causing this.

MacBook :: Keyboard And Trackpad Not Working - Logic Board Repair Possible?

Sep 6, 2010

The keyboard and trackpad on my macbook cut out about six months ago and since then I've been using an external keyboard & mouse. I've only just got round to taking my computer in to be looked at at the genius bar, and what I've heard back is that the connections between the logic board and keyboard top section are damaged, and I've got a quote for <$400 for both to be replaced, which is apparently the only solution. The bulk of the cost is the new logic board, and seeing as it's only a connection rather than the processor itself that is damaged, I'm wondering whether it would be possible to have the logic board component repaired or replaced rather than replacing the entire thing.

MacBook Pro :: Keyboard And Trackpad Suddenly Stop Working - Force Shutdown

Dec 20, 2009

Sometimes while using computer, the entire keyboard and trackpad suddenly go completely unresponsive and I can't do anything. The only button that works is the power button. It's so annoying because I have to do an emergency shutdown and I hate doing that. Is there any relief?

MacBook Air :: Keyboard Trackpad Stops Working After Sleep Mode Ends

Apr 17, 2012

I got a brand new Macbook Air the other week.I noticed that sometimes, after folding the computer (with the OS running), then unfolding it - the keyboard and trackpad are not responding at the login screen. Actually if I press the keyboard it lights up properly but there is no access to the system. The only thing that works is the power button, so every time I have to power down the computer, then back on again.

OS X :: Trackpad And Keyboard Stops Working In 10.5.7?

May 14, 2009

I have some strange problem after updating my MacBookPro4,1 to 10.5.7. After a while (can be a few hours) the trackpad and keyboard stop working. When I then put the MBP to sleep and wake it up, both work again but only for about maybe 5-10 minutes. This can be reproduced (put to sleep, works for 5min, put to sleep, works for 5min, etc.) When I reboot it works again for some hours.

OS X :: Trackpad And Keyboard Not Working After Charging?

Jan 10, 2010

Ok, after having no problems with my MB pro, I am suddenly having all kinds of problems. Today, my trackpad suddenly stopped working. Finger movements don't work, neither does clicks. Now my keyboard is not fully working. It is kind of 'hit and miss.' I had the MB charged and it was not plugged in. It seems to work if I type very slowly. The only other thing I noticed was that it was really lagging today. The busy pinwheel would come up when there wasn't hardly anything even open.

Hardware :: Keyboard / Trackpad And DVD Drive Not Working Right

Jan 9, 2010

So it is a macbook pro 4.1 model running leopard 10.5.8. The keyboard and trackpad don't always want to work. I have been using a bluetooth mouse with no problems though. The DVD drive doesn't want to accept a disk, when you put a disk in it keeps trying to read but stops and then wont eject.

It seems that if the computer is on for more then a hour the keyboard and mouse stop working. Sometimes after restarting the keyboard and mouse work again, but sometimes it doesnt. I was wondering if reformatting would help. If so can I reformat by using the DVD drive off a IMac sharing the drive to format the Macbook Pro?

OS X :: Keyboard / Trackpad Not Working After Software Update

Dec 25, 2010

My macbook pro's (late 2008) keyboard and trackpad stopped working about a month ago. I've been trying to get it working again, but to no avail. It initially stopped working when I updated my software. It got stuck on the startup screen after restarting from the install, so I had to hard shut down and restart. When I turned it back on my keyboard and trackpad didn't work.

I restarted again and it worked. Since then it's been going in and out and now it's finally stopped working all together. Since I'm pretty sure it's a software issue I wanted to reformat my computer. Problem is that I can't hold down the option key to boot it from my install disk! And I had to type all this from my usb mouse, and type each key on the keyboard viewer.

Windows On Mac :: Keyboard And Trackpad Not Working On Bootcamp?

I've probably had Bootcamp running for almost a six months and last week I got on my Windows like normal. But to my dismay my trackpad, mouse, and keyboard were not responding.

OS X :: Keyboard And Trackpad Stopped Working - Fixing It?

Mar 18, 2009

Today I was working with some work and put my laptop to sleep by shutting the lid. Less than half an hour later I opened it and the keyboard and trackpad were both unresponsive. I tried everything but nothing worked so I shutdown the computer by holding the power button down. I then restarted it and they still wouldn't work so I was unable to login. I have also tried an SMC reset but this was to no avail either.

OS X Yosemite :: Keyboard / Trackpad Stop Working After Sleep Mode?

Dec 3, 2014

After a few hours of uptime, certain keys on my keyboard stop working and I have to reboot: both command keys and the zero key. Sometimes, after the computer has been in sleep a long time, the keyboard and mouse don't respond at all. I can get the computer to wake up again by pressing the power key, but the mouse and keyboard don't respond, so I can't do anything except hard boot.  This problem first appeared after the update to 10.10.1. (I'm dealing with it right now, so I'm getting the '0' through the keyboard viewer, but there's no way to access that from the password screen.)

Info:
MacBook Pro (15-inch Early 2008), OS X Yosemite (10.10.1)
