Hi, im new to mac's and this OS. i just recently got a powerbook G4. My problem is that for some reason now some of my keys are doing things that werent before. for example, when i hit F12 the dashboard comes up but when i hit it again to minimize it, it minimizes and then comes back up really quick at the same time turning down my brighness on the screen 1 bar. if i hit the arrow over --> while typing i get 8IK, whys it doing this? thanks

Noooooooooo...........Don't do that. I know there is a thread about things you can do. Search for it and maybe you find it before I do.

Did you do combo update?
Try to redo update. Repair permissions maybe.

Also, check to see that a different keyboard layout hasn't recently been activated in the "International" Sys Prefs Pane or that your FN key isn't stuck.
All the above came from my search of the forums.
