OS X :: 2008 MacBook Pro - Trackpad And Keyboard Unresponsive

Sep 27, 2010

Just out of the blue, the trackpad stopped working tonight. I restarted but the problem remains. Plan Z would be to bring it into the Apple Repair Shop. Found this link, but not sure if it is the correct way to fix this.

OS X Yosemite :: 10.10.1 - Unresponsive Keyboard And Trackpad On MacBook Pro

Dec 12, 2014

I have a brand new MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2014). Shipped with Yosemite pre-installed, the version I have is 10.10.1 . I don't have any software installed except Google Chrome, so it is clean/new OS.  

I noticed sometimes the keyboard and trackpad become completely unresponsive after waking up the laptop from sleep. Happened several times, the last time it happened I could not reset PRAM or SMC as keyboard was unresponsive even after restarting or shutting down so I had to Re-Install OS. 

Right now I have the laptop next to me, again the keyboard and trackpad are unresponsive after wakeup from sleep, and I did SMC reset but did not work. Trying to reset PRAM or go into Recovery mode .. etc, it is not responding to the keyboard, as it is unresponsive at that point as well. 

What should I do ? How can I tell if it is Hardware or Software problem ? I ran the apple test diagnostics test and there was no problem reported. And I am not able to install Mavericks because it is shipped with Yosemite pre-installed so it is not allowing me to downgrade. 

MacBook Pro with Retina display, OS X Yosemite (10.10.1)

MacBook Pro :: Keyboard And Trackpad Unresponsive After Sleep Mode

Dec 12, 2010

So, sometimes when I wake my SR 2007 15" MBP from sleep, the keyboard and trackpad are unresponsive and I have to reboot several times before they work. I googled the problem and looked around here and didn't find any solutions.

MacBook Pro :: Keyboard And Trackpad Freezes - Totally Unresponsive

Apr 19, 2009

I have a MacBook Pro 2.4GHz from last Fall (not the new Unibody) that has a keyboard and trackpad that freezes, meaning it becomes totally unresponsive, with no warning for no reason. Either I carry an external keyboard and mouse, or, my only recourse is to hold the power button down and restart the machine. When it reboots, sometimes the keyboard works and sometimes it does not. If other folks have had or are having this problem, would you please step up and say so? I'm tired of Apple support people telling me they have never seen this problem when there are so many others who have written to the forum with the same or similar issues.

MacBook Pro :: Cracked And Unresponsive Trackpad?

Jul 7, 2010

A few days ago I posted about a bit scratch that appeared out of nowhere on my brand new iPad, now this: Spilt tiny quantity, maybe 3 ml, of coke onto the case of my mbp and little of it drained into the bottom edge of the trackpad. It became unresponsive and made only a dull click for the next 15 mins. Whilst tapping harder to see if I could get a click out of it (it ofc happened whilst doing something important) the glass of the track pad cracked beneath my finger. Wasn't even tapping that hard.

MacBook :: Trackpad Jerky Movement (Sometimes Unresponsive)

Aug 24, 2010

I've had my trusty aluminum MacBook for around 18 months and recently I've noticed that the trackpad is sometimes unresponsive, it's as if it's registering another press elsewhere. Moving the cursor across the screen it 'jumps' around from time to time, this is becoming more and more of an irritation. I'm loathed to take the machine in as I really need it for work at the moment.

MacBook Air :: Trackpad Tap To Click Unresponsive After Sleep?

Nov 20, 2010

I just got a 13" MacBook Air and I'm having an issue with it; googling around I've seen slightly similar problems, but nothing identical to what is going on with mine. I have the trackpad set to use the "tap to click" option in System Preferences and I've noticed that after I sleep the machine and wake it again, something gets bungled with it. The tap to click either stops responding entirely, requiring that I use the regular physical click instead, or it's highly, highly unresponsive. I've seen other reports of erratic clicking and the mouse moving on its own after sleeping the laptop.

Which thankfully mine isn't doing, but I haven't seen anybody reporting this slightly more demure issue. In any event, rebooting the machine fixes the problem completely until I sleep it next. I'm not 100% convinced that this is an Air issue, however, since I think it affected my 15" MacBook Pro to a lesser degree right after I upgraded that machine to 10.6.5, but I can't be entire certain of that since I no longer have that laptop and rarely used it without an external mouse in the first place.

MacBook :: Unibody Trackpad And USB Mice Unresponsive

May 21, 2009

my wife's trackpad stopped responding to clicks today. The only function it will do is two fingers for right click. none of the gestures work, and the mouse cannot select anything, since it cannot left click. Same for tapping on the mouse as for actually physically clicking the trackpad down. I have restarted it a few times, and each time it functions normally for about a minute before it stops. Now the really weird part -- my USB mighty mouse does the same thing when plugged in. It works for about a minute, then suddenly the only thing her mb will recognize is the right click. I'm probably just going to have to take it in tomorrow, but if anyone could save me the trip.

MacBook Pro :: Unresponsive Trackpad After Graphics Update

MacBook Pro :: IStat Pro Makes Trackpad Unresponsive / Skips After Sleep

Jul 2, 2008

Because it happened to me a few times where the cursor will skip or one time the cursor wont even move or be responsive with my finger. The weird part is that once I exit safari the trackpad seems to work again perfectly. Also not sure if its because I have sweaty hands and my fingers are too wet? But its not something excessively sweaty or nasty just a lil moisture I guess on my finger tips at times.
Update: Never mind, found out the culprit istat pro.

MacBook Pro :: (Early 2008) Unresponsive Trackpad Button Not Register Click

Sep 7, 2009

I've noticed that when I try clicking on the trackpad's button, most of the time it will register the press and other times it doesn't. The button, physically, doesn't feel any different whether it registers the click or not. The button "clicks" down like normal and doesn't feel loose. Also, when I click and hold on the button and try to move my finger around the trackpad to highlight text or drag a folder, most of the time, the computer acts like I let go of the button and pressed it down again multiple times. While it does this, my finger remains on the trackpad button without being lifted. I recently upgraded my Mac to Snow Leopard but the problem occurred even with Leopard installed. I'm unsure as to whether or not this is a software or hardware issue. Could it be that there's something lodged under the trackpad button to cause this? If so, how would I be able to check under the button?

MacBook Pro :: Somewhat Unresponsive S Key On Keyboard

Nov 18, 2010

I've owned my 15 inch Macbook Pro for a little over a month now, and I've noticed that generally the keyboard requires a bit more of a tactile pres than others that I've used, but my S key is especially annoying. I can depress it all the way lightly (<-- notice the lack of second s in depress) and have it not register. I have to press a fair bit harder. I'm sure I'm not the only one here who's had problems with the keyboard. I'm just wondering if there are any obvious fixes before I end up taking it in to a store. I've tried pressing down really hard and moving the key around a bit and canned air, but I don't think anything's under the key, it seems like just a mechanical issue.

OS X :: Generic Usb Keyboard Disappearing / Coming Out Of Sleep Keyboard Is Unresponsive

Jan 5, 2010

I just got a generic usb keyboard to use with my mbp as schoolwork is taking its toll on the keys and I wouldn't mind preserving it a little better.

This keyboard is the dynex from bbuy that's labeled in windows crap but was cheap and works fine on the mac. Unfortunately, everytime the mbp comes out of sleep, the keyboard is unresponsive and i have to set it up again in settings.

Just hoping there's a simple fix and that it's not terminal

thanks in advance.

MacBook Pro :: Won't Start / Black Screen / Keyboard Unresponsive?

Apr 20, 2010

I have a MacBook Pro from December 2007. Currently, when I push the power button to start it up, it makes the initial sound (although sometimes this initial sound is abbreviated, like it's cut off mid sound) but it never sounds the follow-up majestic-type chime. Also, the screen remains black, and the keyboard is unresponsive (The Caps doesn't light up, for instance). The light on the front comes on faintly, but does not blink as in sleep mode. And the fan comes on as well, again faintly, not as in overdrive.

And I'm assuming this next part is coincidental but I'll relay it anyway: The first hiccup with this was yesterday when, in sleep mode, I pushed the front release button to open the MCP and then immediately afterward accidentally closed it again. Upon opening it for the second time the screen remained black. I manually shut it down holding the power button. After two or three times of turning it on and off manually, the majestic chime thing finally sounded and it booted properly. It worked fine then throughout the rest of the day when I would come back to it until last night when it failed again.

MacBook Pro :: Screen Is Black And Keyboard Might Be Unresponsive After Windows 7 Update?

Dec 4, 2014

I just bought a macbook pro, and I installed bootcamp and had everything running perfectly. I installed the drivers, and then I let windows 7 update while I went to sleep, when I woke up the macbook was turned off, then I tried to turn it on, and it sounded like it was about to boot up, but the screen is blank there is no cursor, it looks like it's not even on, and I think the keyboard is unresponsive because when I press caplocks it doesn't light up.

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.

OS X :: Unresponsive Keyboard - Cannot Type Anything

Mar 10, 2010

Lately I have been having a very strange issue with my keyboard. Randomly it becomes unresponsive, but not every key?! All letters are unresponsive, however I am still able to navigate spaces using cmd-1,2,3,4 etc., and the caps lock button will turn on, however I can't type anything. The only way to resolve it is by putting the macbook to sleep and then waking it.

PowerPC :: Installing OS On IBook - Keyboard Unresponsive

Jul 21, 2010

I am pretty new to mac so a little unsure about the issue at hand. I bought an ibook without an OS installed. So I put in a setup CD but cant get it to load by holding C. This initially made me question the CD. But I then realised I wasn't able to eject it by holding fn and f12. Also the caps light wouldn't toggle on and off when I hit it, though I am unsure if this light works when there is no OS installed. My question is: is the keyboard not working?

MacBook :: Keyboard And Trackpad Not Work At All

Dec 25, 2008

I've got a black plastic MacBook running Leopard 10.5.6. My laptop was running sluggishly, but no real problems, so I restarted it, and now the keyboard and trackpad don't work at all. I've tried resetting the PRAM and SMC (the keyboard did work in letting me reset the PRAM, but nothing works once it boots to the login screen.)

MacBook Air :: Keyboard And TrackPad Not Responding

Jun 15, 2009

The other day my battery died on me and after I had plugged it in and restarted, I was unable to enter in my password at the login screen because the keyboard and trackpad wouldn't respond. I tried repairing the disk and permissions but I still can't get past the login screen. I know I can always reinstall leopard but there are a few files I haven't had the chance to backup. Any way to get back those files before I reinstall?

MacBook Pro :: Keyboard And Trackpad Freezing

Dec 24, 2009

i'm having problems with my keyboard and trackpad freezing at times. Sometimes it will freeze completely, no keys working except for the power button. other times it will freeze for just a few seconds then unfreeze itself. the first scenario is esp bad because if im working on a project or typing a paper and it freezes, im SOL. sometimes it'll even freeze u when i turn it on. when the main screen comes up i cant move the mouse and the aforementioned problem starts. sometimes i have to turn it on and off 3 or 4 times before i can use it again. also, my keys sometimes "stick", and by stick i mean they will repeat itself after i've stopped touching the key. it's not literally stuck down, but it keeps putting the same letter (or doing the same function) until i push a couple more buttons.

anyone have similar problems? i've tried everything i can think of. the only thing left is to reformat the hard drive. I want to use time machine afterwards but i'm afraid if its a software issue, i'll just put it back on my computer after the reformat.

MacBook Pro :: Keyboard And Trackpad Have No Response Sometime?

Jun 22, 2012

My keyboard and trackpad have no response sometime in cold environment like winter. So I have to hold down the power button to shut the macbook. When restarted, everything will be fine. In winter if i leave the  macbook sleep over a night , when i use it the next day this problem must appear.But in summer ,it never happens. And i also find when keyboard and trackpad have no response, the usb mouse can still work. So it is not a crash.

My laptop is macbook pro (373) 15' 2010 mid.
