Default Keyboard Issues - 07-25-2009, 09:52 PM

Hi everyone,
another problem has occurred on the mini. This time its the keyboard. It's weird though, some keys work if you press the command key or option key for example space normally it doesn't work but if you press the command key it works.

Please help!!!

I believe over in the min9 hardware sub-forum you'll find a very long thread about replacing the standard keyboard with an international model. The very first post (and about the last post) have the key combo to press to tell the mini9 BIOS what model keyboard is attached. Just use the key combo for the regular keyboard vs the international. See if that clears things up for you.

Mine was acting funny like that then it magically fixed itself. I haven't had a problem since.
