    Keyboard and Mouse problem

    Yes- have logged on as a different user, and the mouse squeeze button is still not working. Does this suggest hardware problem then? Simon

    Keyboard and Mouse problem

    Yeah, tried swapping it around, cheers; no change. It is only the squeeze button which does not work, so not tooo much of a chore; especially with the biutton on my LOVELY new keyboard. Unless someone has any bright ideas, I guess I am stuck with it. Thank you guys though- been a great help. Simon

    Keyboard and Mouse problem

    Amazing! That worked on my keyboard- brilliant! Just my mighty mouse left- the squeeze buttons have stopped working. Can't find any Apple updates for it- any ideas? But- my keyboard works- so I am halfway there! THANK YOU SO FAR! Simon

    Keyboard and Mouse problem

    OK, just to add to the problem, I have just got a metal wireless keyboard (sexy!). Looks great, but the media keys still do not work, neither does the eject key. Tried the update, nothing there to update; tried to install the latest update 'pack' from Apple, no good- just says that the drive is not suitable for the update. Getting to the stage where I am about to give up, and just accept that it doesn't work. Thing is, that is a windows approach, not a Mac approach. Any last thoughts? Thanks folks. Simon

    I have tried to do the update, but it will not let me, saying my drive does not meet the requirements; must be because I have installed it already, I would have thought?

    Hope this works- and helps! Thank you as always. These keys (or lack of them) are doing my nut in. Simon

    I have been through the mighty mouse troubleshooting, thanks- it does show in system profiler as it should, so that is a blank. Hmmm... I have a couple pics, one of the mouse button settings, and one of the profiler; how do I post them on here? I have tried cut and paste, with no joy. Simon

    Keyboard and Mouse problem

    Ok, repaired permissions, with a restart afterwards, no good; still the 4 keys (volume up & down, mute and eject) not working, and the squeeze the mouse one. Oh,and the middle button on the mighty mouse. What now? Any ideas? Thank you for your help so far though. Simon Oh yes- I did not have those options on my settings, just 'modifer keys'.

    Sorry- I have tried to find that tick box for the 'use function keys as function keys', but can't- where could I find it? THANK YOU. Simon

    Keyboard and Mouse problem

    Hey thanks! Ihave checked the universal access again- it was turned on, and that has got back my number keys. It's just the media keys and the squeezy mighty mouse button which does not work now. So I am getting there- any more thoughts? Thank you again. Simon

    Keyboard and Mouse problem

    I am beggining to agree, that it is a hardware problem. It's a bog standard white imac keyboard, so there is nothing I can install/ uninstall; it does seem strange that it is only the 1-0 keys, the . key, and the multimedia keys on it that are broken. The =/*-+ an enter all work fine. Strange. Still, may be a great excuse to get one of those shiny silver keyboards! Mmmmmmm.... Thank you folks- it's great to know your out there! Simon

    Keyboard and Mouse problem

    Actually- just noticed- the whole numerical keypad is broke- except the enter button! PLEASE help- it's doing my nut in- I reall miss the volume and eject buttons! Simon

    Keyboard and Mouse problem

    Thanks guys. I have tried the clear ram, and nothing has changed. Also, I have reset the defaults on the keyboard/ mouse panel, and the universal access bit- still no joy. Help!!!!! Incidentially, at the same time as I had this problem, the volume and DVD tray icon appeared in my top right menu bar. Thanks folks.

    Keyboard and Mouse problem

    Help! Last weeked, for no obvious reason, the volume keys and the eject button on my white keyboard stopped working. same time, my mighty mouse squeeze and scroll ball buttons stopped, as well. I was not updating or anything- and I have restarted the mac, and switched the usb ports, just in case- same problem. I have searched google for assistance, but no luck; any ideas? Cheers!
