I have a feeling your keyboard isn't US English.

Besides, it's EnableCheats=1 so you better check spelling.

Good luck.

Are these on separate lines? (they should be).

they are separate lines.
and asstated i have double check to make sure the spelling and spacing are correct. i gave redownloaded the mod again this to orride folder and nothing works. the cheat console still not usable.

There's really not much more that can be advised at this point aside from doublechecking:

1) swkotor.ini is in your game installation folder
2) it is truly named swkotor.ini and not swkotor.ini.txt or something
3) in the swkotor.ini file there EnableCheats appears under the Game Options section:

[Game Options]

4) You are pressing the ~ key in the game.

Regarding the cheats...
take a look at post #35 and #36 in the thread Jae quoted above.

Does that help out ?

I had the same problem a few weeks ago, try this do a search for the ini.file and change the lines through the search, that should do it.

i have changed the .ini file and it was exactly like my desktop. my desktp works great. i have reloaded all mods and reinstalled all mods and still nothing. i also have problems with TSL also.

Have you tried using an external keyboard -- the one from your desktop for example?

Just unplug your keyboard from your desktop and plug it into your laptop. Most laptops have both USB and PS/2 ports for different types of keyboards. If it's a PS/2 keybaord (round connection, often purple color-coded), you should only plug it in when the laptop is off. USB doesn't matter. Either way, your laptop should just recognize the new input device and off you go.
