Hi, I own a MacBook Pro and also have an old iMac G5 PowerPC that up until recently was still going strong.

The space bar has stopped working for no apparent reason. I have tested out two other keyboards, thinking that this must be the problem, but to no avail.

I have tried reinstalling the operating system 10.4.11 but this has not helped. I can only assume its a hardware problem, but before I throw my machine away I wonder if anyone might be able to help.
QUOTE Thanks

Have you also tested the keyboards with your MacBook Pro to make sure they work properly?
