Hi,

A friend is having problems with his imac keyboard. It is one of the latest imacís and is running windows.

All of a sudden, it has become very erratic after a recent software update. New batteries have been installed but it has made no difference

Basically it only starts to work after several minutes and with a lot of turning on and off. The light comes on but for the first few minutes it doesn't seem to connect to the desktop.

What do you advise? Many thanks,

Gord

Any chance of removing the update to see if it is definitely the problem?
