I have an older MacPro  - the MacPro 1,1 model.


Hadn't used it in a while a - when I set it up again the keyboard's Delete key and SpaceBar won't work.


Here is the topline:


1. I left the power cord in the office and used a PC one. Not sure if this could be the cause.

2. I upgraded to 10.6.8 the most current. Didn't help.

3. Reset the PRAM - Didn't Help.

4. Checked the Keyboard Viewer - Not sure what that does other than to confirm something is happening.


If I had to guess - and based on other forums I have looked at - it will likely be a power issue.

How that affects these keys - I have no idea.

I will test this next.


But if anyone has experienced this would love to hear if you solved it.




Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8), MacPro 1,1
