Can I connect a Genius continental keyboard to UK WXP Laptop?

Currently I find the laptop keyboard not so user friendly as a standard Keyboard as i have with my Desk Top PC. I am in Portugal and wish to acquire a keyboard for use with my Advent Laptop.
Regretably I can only acquire a Continental version of a keyboard (i.e. with ''@'' situated on number 2 key.
If I make such a connection as suggested, will it not damage/interfere with my laptop workings etc?

Your help will be gratefully accepted.
Many thanks.

No it will not, and you can use the Text Services located in the control panel under Regional and Language Options > Language > Details > Settings: to control the keyboard layout.

I would like to mount on my laptop (Compaq Presario CQ57-304sl) a backlit keyboard...i've seen some Hp laptops with very similar keyboards...is it feasible?


I have a Pavilion M7 that had a back lit keyboard. Unfortunately it was for the wrong country so I changed it for a standard UK keyboard. Have a look on ebay for keyboards, there may be one available for your machine.

ASUS Eee PC 1000H DIY 1000HE chiclet keyboard upgrade

ASUS have been gradually transitioning to chiclet-style keyboards on their Eee PC netbooks, with the latest model to get the new style being the Eee PC 1000HA. If you're an existing owner looking longingly at the new layout, meanwhile, and specifically have an ASUS Eee PC 1000H, you can fudge your own update with the keyboard from the Eee PC 1000HE.

It's not just an aesthetic upgrade, either. ASUS bizarrely played around with the keyboard layout on the 1000H, one of the most obvious changes being the right-hand shift key getting nudged across by the up arrow. The 1000HE keyboard, however, has a more standard layout.

There's a little modification required before the keyboard panel slots in - basically snipping off a few metal tabs - but it looks relatively easy from EeeUser.com forum member Barovelli's photos (some of which are reproduced here). Not all users are reporting 100-percent key success, however, so don't throw away your old 'board.

The replacement 1000HE keyboard is priced at $15 through ASUS; however, it's currently listed as out of stock.

Keyboard on laptop won't work at all none of the keys work so can't log on


Hi friend, As you have mentioned that the keys on the keyboard are not responding, so, i would like you to do one thing. Please connect any external USB keyboard to your laptop and check if it is working fine.
If it works, it means that the keyboard of the laptop needs to be changed, else, if the external does not work then there is a need to replace the motherboard and the keyboard of the system
