    for some oddass reason, the only key on my macbook's keyboard that works in a virtual machine in vmware fusion is the apple key. when i press it, the start menu will pop up in xp. if i hit any other key, nothing happens and my mac makes a sound, kinda like a drum even if i have the vm in full screen.
    was installing vista and then this happened all of a sudden
    keyboard does not work in vista or 2003 server or ubuntu. even in the menu to select safe mode at startup, i cannot use the arrow keys

    restarted, didn't fix it.
    reinstall vmware tools within each virtual machine, didn't fix it.
    reinstalled my vitrual machines, didn't fix it
    reinstalled vmware fusion, didn't fix it.
    currently downloading the latest version of vmware to see if that makes a difference
