OSX Mavericks, MacAir11

My built-in keyboard suddenly does not work anymore. Even when I did not turn on caps lock it stills capitalize all letters for me. I relogged but does not work. After testing I found out that the Right Shift is glitched. This makes me unable to enter the password of my Mac correctly and leads to the second problem. I don't know if it's because the keys are malfunctioning or I get infected by a virus.

As I cannot log in into my Mac, I have to log in using the Guest User account. But this happens:

And it made an infinite loop.

Error message (god, it took me a long time!)

I did not make any modifications to the OS itself. Found out that the keyboard problem and the kernel problem is two different things.

Any suggestions why this is happening, and how can I fix this problem?

  • Did you already try to boot from the recovery partition and fix things from there? Commented Jan 23, 2015 at 15:11

    Do you have a USB keyboard available that you can plug in and use?

Problem solved.


The Right Shift button is stuck as there is dust.

Error code

Basically, there is an issue when my Mac is starting up -- one of the CPUs (in this case, CPU 1) is not working correctly.
