    My keyboard will randomly stop working
    I just got a refurbished macbook and it works fine except for when im working on it my keyboard will stop working randomly. If I wait a few seconds and then try again it will work again but it's just so frustrating! Can anyone help?

    Probably just Apple! I would get it back to the Apple store. They can change a macbook keyboard (its the whole top of the computer!) in a matter of minutes and this will fix the problem probably (unless it is a main board or software problem)

    Refurbished machines carry the full Apple warranty. Call Apple and let them resolve the problem. If there's an Apple store nearby, give them a call and make an appointment with the genius service technicians.

    Regards.
