Problem with keyboard replacement in IBM Thinkpad R52

Hello.
My keyboard in Thinkpad R52 was originally German adapted to work with polish language (stickers on keys) - FRU number of this keyboard is 39T0769. I've bought a new keyboard with FRU 39T0704, but after install I can't type certain keys, i.e. keys (t, y, a, s) works, but typing (8, 0, /, q, w, e, r, u, i, o,p, ], k,) has no effect on the screen, and so on. Supposedly this keyboard may be locking, but I don't know how this lock remove (if any)? Please help me.

The keyboard you purchased (39T0704) is a US English keyboard. Change your input local in your "Keyboard" "Control Panel" to "EN English (United States)" and all your keys should work. As far as getting the English keyboard to work in German or Polish is very unlikely.

    It is possible that since your notebook is not US and the keyboard is that the code pages in the keyboard are incompatible with the BIOS in your computer. You could try flashing the BIOS of the computer with a BIOS downloaded from IBM's US website.

Ibm r52 is working with battery, but the battery is not getting charged. Ac adapter is working properly.


Either bad battery or failed battery charging circuit on the motherboard.
You cannot tell which is failing without testing laptop with another known good battery.
