    Keyboard problem
    I have been using an external keyboard with my Powerbook G4 (running 10.4.3) for a few years, and now it is acting really weird. At times, when I press letters on the keyboard, no type will appear and I'll get drop down menus instead. It has happened with a couple of applications - Entourage and Word.
    Does this mean I should replace the keyboard, or might the problem be something else? If I do need to get a new keyboard, which model
    would you recommend. Thanks!

    If it is only happening with those applications, then I would rule out a hardware issue.
    Try repairing permissions first. If nothing, then try reinstalling the applications in question.

    Those are the applications I have used most frequently, but I think it may have happened with others. How do I reset permissions? Could it be a hardware problem?
