    Hello
    I've just installed the x64 version of Windows 7, and everything seems to work fine but the keyboard, the function keys and the lights are not working. I've the unibody MBP... I tried by installing the driver manually but it's still the same.

    Do you have any ideas?

    Thank you!!

    Are you using the stock Boot Camp drivers? Mabye try reinstalling them, by inserting the Mac OS X install CD, and going from there by the on-screen directions. ;)

    I'm having a similar problem with XP through Parallels. The keys will randomly stop working, or they will prompt a different action - example earlier when pressing the letter "D" I was getting transferred to the logon screen. Also, the "caps lock" button was confused - when it was lite up the text will come out in lowercase, and when it was off the text would be capitalized. Sometimes it's just fine, other times it has a mind of its own ;).

    I thought I had read the Vista 64 Bootcamp drivers worked ok with Win7.... you did install the Vista 64 bit drivers and not the standard Vista drivers right? Well can't expect too much from drivers made for a different OS.

    Well, i did try reinstalling the drivers but everything was the same, plus i had a bad error from the realtek audio drivers and my sound card was not recognized anymore... So i decided to reinstall the windows 7 x86. And actually everything is way much better, no need to install other stuff just the drivers from the MacOS cd...
    Hope this helps :D

    Sometimes, these things just get corrupted and you need to reinstall the whole os. That s*cks great.

    FWIW, sometimes you need to completely clean out the old drivers, there are quite a few utilities out there to do that. It's especially true of video card drivers, but it might be worth a shot before you reinstall the OS.

    I can't remember what I use, I'm typing this from work and don't have my computer handy. Google "update drivers" and you'll get a bunch of options.
