    Exclamation Sound and brightness buttons not working...
    Ive had my mac over a year and its aways worked fine, so why i decided to go on to system preferences and mess about with the settings - i dont know.
    anyway, ive done something and the 'F' number buttons dont work, including the brightness and sound on the keyboard.
    Ive restarted my mac and reset the PRAM and went back and tried to restore defaults in system preferences, but its still not working
    any other way of getting it to work? really need some help before parents find this lol..
    please help!

    Specs:
    13" MBP 2.53 DC2, 09 Mini 2.0 DC2, 07 Mini 2.16 DC2, MB 2.0 DC2, iBook G3 900MHz, G4 Sawtooth 1.6Ghz
    system preferences>keyboard and mouse> keyboard tab> uncheck "Use all F1, F2, etc. keys as standard keys"

    should be good to go
