Toshiba laptops keyboard interchange

Guys,
I am looking to purchase a new laptop from a US store, but my partner is from Germany. Is it a straight one for one swap if I were to buy a german keyboard and just change it with the one that comes with the computer? Or is it more involved than that?

Many thanks

    Thank you very much for your quick answer. I am not sure it is as simple as an exchange of the text on the keys, as the German alphabet has an additional 6 characters compared to an english one. What I am searching for is if I purchase a German keyboard from the National Parts Depot as you suggested, will the laptop recognise the German keyboard that has been installed and then automatically start producing German text when the appropriate keys are struck? Or is it a reconfiguring of the computer itself?



    Cheers

Hi.. if you just wanna change the text markings of the keyboard, then it's alright as long as the keyboard layout' or athe same. You could also check out the Toshiba National Parts Depot if they offer German keyboard layouts at 1-800-524-8338.

Hope this helps.

    Hi.. if you want to change the whole language of the entire operating system, try installing a Multilingual User Interface (MUI) Pack, you can get it here. I'm not sure if that will affect the keys being struck on the keyboard so that it will show a German letter on the screen. If that doesn't work, just buy a German retail version of Windows and that should fix it. About the German keyboard , it will be detected as long as you set the keyboard layout to German at the control panel under regional settings.

    Hope this helps..

Some keys in my msi laptop are not working.


Your keys might be broken in your keyboard. You can look online to see if you can purchase a replacement keyboard for your msi laptop, then see if there is a youtube video for the laptop model that you ow. It should show you how to take your laptop apart to install the new keyboard. Or, you can take it to a computer repair store, and ask them to install the new keyboard.

Check eBay. I've been working on computers for years and order ALL of my replacement keyboards through eBay. I just found 9 of them after entering your model number; about $16 with free shipping. Sarawill82 hit the nail on the head for the replacement; you tube is your friend if you're doing it yourself. If it doesn't have your exact laptop, look at other videos. It will give you an idea what you need to look for to replace the keyboard.

It beats paying a computer store a $45+ bench fee, and it will only take you about 15 minutes as a novice.

Don't try to clean it; you could cause more extensive damage than just replacing the keyboard.

Keyboard replace


Forgive me, not advertising for these guys,
http://www.laptopkeyboard.com/Guides.php/Samsung/Q%20Series/Q430/KBSG5
(They say, "A picture is worth a thousand words")
As new as the Samsung Q430 series of Notebook PC's is, there should be only two different types of ZIF connectors on the motherboard, used for the Keyboard Cable. But may be three;
A ZIF connector is a Zero Insertion Force connector. The motherboard connector on a laptop, that the Keyboard Cable goes into, is a style of ZIF connector.
Usually composed of two parts; The bottom part is larger in size, and is Stationary to the motherboard. It is called the BODY.
The upper part is smaller in size, and is Movable. It is the Locking Bar. Uses the wedge principle when in the closed/locked position, to wedge the Keyboard Cable into the Body.
1) The newest style has no Locking Bar to release. The Keyboard Cable is gently, yet firmly, pulled on; and removed from the motherboard connector. To reinstall just line it up as it was originally, then push in.
2) I refer to this as the Flip-Up style;
Closed/Locked,

Open/Unlocked,
http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-L645D-L640D/big/laptop-disassembly-14.jpg
3) And an older style. I refer to this style as the Slide style;
Closed/Locked;

Open/Unlocked;
http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-L675D-L670D/big-body/dismantle-laptop-11.jpg
All you can see are two 'Tab's of the Locking Bar, on each side of the Keyboard Cable.
These Tabs are EASED up with your thumbnails. Ease up on one side a little, then the other side; then both sides.
Moves approximately 2mm. That is a little more than 1/16th of an Inch, or about the width of this capital letter -> O <-
IF,....the Locking Bar is broken, or IF,...the Body is broken; you are looking at MOTHERBOARD REPLACEMENT, and why I am being so detailed.
Note that other motherboard connectors, may use a ZIF connector of one of the types stated above, also.
Touchpad Cable, etc.
When replacing a Keyboard, line the flat bar terminals strips on the Keyboard Cable, back up to the contact pins in the motherboard connector.
The Keyboard Cable MUST go back in the same position, as it was originally. Therefore look at the old Keyboard, and it's cable; to orient the new Keyboard Cable correctly.
For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Is the keyboard on the toshiba satellite a135-s4427 backlit and if so how do i activate it


The Toshiba Satellite A135 series stock keyboard is not backlit, and that model only supports one type of non-backlit keyboard, which is interchangeable with several other Satellite series. Here is some extended info on the keyboard for your model: http://www.machinaelectronics.com/store/buypart/Toshiba_Satellite_A135_S4427/K000044100

Spilled a little rum on the corner right side of the laptop and now had to get an external keyboard because the laptop keyboard types multple letters and numbers when keys are pressed.


If that is the case you can purchase a new keyboard off ebay for $20, remove the screws holding it (will either be underneath laptop or right above keyboard) and replace.

Great! The part number you seek is P000329030, Below is a link to purchase a refurb keyboard. They work just as well as a new one but at less cost. I think a new board will run you between $85-$100 dollars depending on where you go. (My company, C2Solutions, sells it for $84.95 new and free shipping.) When you do get it, it's fairly easy to install the new one. Good Luck and glad to help. Franklin
