I have the Mac Book Pro version 10.4.11. Everything was fine with my computer until yesterday. I tried logging into my account but only a few keys would type. I can't log into my account at all. It seems that most of the keys on the right side aren't working. I've never spilled anything on my keyboard before. Is there anything I can do to fix this problem?

Thanks in advance!

That sounds like it may be one of the older (first) MacBook Pros. Keyboard problems like yours can possibly mean removing the old keyboard and replacing it. If you would like to do the work yourself, go to iFixit: The free repair manual and look up your model MBP. Price the keyboard and take a look at step by step instructions for changing it out.

Before you do that though, make sure you've rebooted the machine. Also try running the Apple Hardware Tests from your Tiger install DVD
