    For some odd reason my MacBook (OSX) keyboard macros are doing odd things. When I try to use the volume up it pulls up my dashboard. How do I fix this?

    Buy a PC. :thumbup:



















    Lol.

    But really, my only guess software side could be that your drivers somehow got screwed up. I'd guess there would be a place on the apple website where you could download them and then update/reinstall the current ones.

    Only other thing I can think of would be a hardware problem. I have heard of people having such hardware problems, but its not very common. If your computer is still under warranty and you can't get it fixed on your own it might be best just to send it back in.

    Well I can't help you there since I don't have a Mac then. Try googling around. If its as simple as you say then the fix shouldn't be too hard.

    Maybe it's a... Virus!

    Oh but wait, Mac's don't get those do they... :rolleyes:


    Is there a button for bringing up your dashboard? If so, what does that do?

    there is a virus that's built into the macOSx system that sends internet history back to apple so that they can sell it to advertisers.. look in the macOSx user aggreement section in the manual. (mac trojan.agent) :smile: also, there are other hidden presents as well but they're all inacessable. its a conspiracy

    It's not a conspiracy... It's just Apple being themselves.

    I'm pretty sure there's something in settings about keys etc. But yeh, Apple have things like that because they make the OS AND the computer, unlike Microsoft
