    Z key
    I have a weird problem with one of my keys. It's the z key on my clamshell
    computer. I'm not sure if it had this problem before now, I'm almost positive that it didn't, but can't say for sure.

    My OS 9 and OS X are on different partitions. When I use OS 9 the z key works fine, but when I'm on OS X it only works if I press shift and z to give me an uppercase letter. It will not work if I just press z (I get a system sound ping) or use the cap lock.

    I'm not sure what to do next. The last thing I did on it was assign the F number keys on OS 9. Any idea's on how to get my key back would be very much appreciated.

    Thanks,
    kahlan

    Smae Z-key problem
    Hi Kahlan,

    Did you ever get to the bottom of your z-key problem? I have the identical problem on my Powerbook. CAPITAL Z is OK; lower case z does not work (I'm typing this on a PC). It MUST be software/driver related.

    What did you do?

    Cheers

    Ray
