    It's that cat again!

    Seriously, that is almost certainly what has happened. I'm not at my Mac right now to look, but I suspect if you look in settings you might find your answer, and/or someone else might chime in who does know.
    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

    Unfortunately that may change things for the worse!
    Liquid and Laptops do not mix. There are all kinds a strange things that can happen when you play with the settings, which is what I assumed from your first post. But, that may not be the case here. Especially depending on how the mess was cleaned up.

    We have a sticky on one of the sub forums regarding spills and computers. I'll try to find it for you.

    EDIT: Found it. Read the top thread (sticky) in the forum you posted this message in. In will tell you pretty much what to expect. Hope everything turns out okay.

    And i think Razor hit it on the head. Liquid(of any type) + Electrics = Death

    Here is a quick step to the Sticky

    The Official "I spilled liquid in my MacBook, what do I do now?" thread

    On a lighter note, glad it wasnt the cat again.

    Cheers

    The "kitty" problems are easy to solve, but vomit on a keyboard is another matter. Might be time to completely take the machine apart and attempt cleaning it. A search through these forums should bring up posts on the many ways that users have successfully and unsuccessfully cleaned their machine to get them back in working order.
