I cannot type the letter M without having to hit the command key twice and if I don't double click the command key it will just minimize the window i am in. None of my buttons are stuck or anything and i have tried to turn off the minimize shortcut by going into preferences and going to keyboard and mouse and then going to keyboard shortcuts but its no where in there so i can't even turn it off if i wanted. Can anyone help me with this problem? Its a macbook from 2007 by the way

What OS are you running on the 2007 MB ??

Have you Repaired Permissions Via Disk Utility or run the Maintenance Scripts in Oynx or Main Menu ??

Any sort of liquid spills on the keyboard by chance?

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

Maybe a new USB keyboard will be the best option. Reasonable use 6 years.
