The keyboard for my MacBook pro doesn't function properly
I've had this problem before, there's an easy reset but I can't find the instructions

G'day and welcome to the forums.

How long since a reboot? What settings have you got in System Preferences? What model MBP? What operating system and have you tried Repair Permissions?

Any chance of a spill or excess moisture? Next suggestion an SMC reset.

And further to Harry's suggestions, what exactly does "doesn't function properly" mean??

Do the keys not work when touched?
Do only certain keys work?
Do the Function keys not work? ie: ⌘, ⌥, ⌃, fn . . . .
Does the backlit keys turn on?

How isn't your keyboard working? We need a lot more information to help out . . .

Cheers
