Hi there,

I've had a MacBook for about 7 months now (I finally switched over from PC!). I've got it hooked up to a 20" Apple display with a corded Apple "Mighty" mouse & a Bluetooth keyboard. Up until today, the keyboard works flawlessly.

Today, I decided I neede a bigger screen on the notebook & went out & bought the 17" MacBook Pro. Unfortunately, the keyboard will NOT work. The notebook can't find it. I know there's NOTHING wrong with the keyboard because I turn the old MacBook back on and it immediately finds the keyboard & it works perfectly.

Any ideas what's going on? I've been "Googling" and this seems to be an issue, but I haven't really found a solution yet. I downloaded & installed the most recent updates, but again, nothing.

Any ideas???

Thanks in advance!

Make sure you have fresh batteries in it. Apple rates it at 6 months on a set of batteries with average use.
