    Thank you very much for your help and valuable advice. I removed the keyboard with no difficulty and checked the connector contacts and all look OK. However, there is evidence of liquid spill (brown stains on rear of keyboard under the laminate) so I think it is US.
    I have now obtained a USB external keyboard and this works fine, via windows, so I can manage for now.
    Thanks for the eBay link but I had already spotted that item.

Try taking the keyboard out and re-seating the connection, there should be a manual on how to remove it...actall here... http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-4793QA.html

This is the downloadable manual to show you how to do it but please be carefull and take your time. Take the connection out and and put it in again and try that, failing this you will need a replacement keyboard, you can get one on ebay - http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/IBM-ThinkPad-570E-Laptop-Keyboard-Tested-0583-/230590820594?pt=UK_Computing_ComputerComponents_KeyboardsMice&hash=item35b048b0f2

Hope this helps

sounds like a faulty keyboard to me, I recommend removing the keyboard, and blowing out the connector with a can of air and reinstalling the keyboard. if that does not work I would connect a USB keyboard to make sure it is not a setting. If a USB keyboard is working fine, replace the keyboard.

How to dissassembled IBM thinkpad 570


The keyboard is held by two screws on the bottom of the machine, then you just need to work it up ay one side and off. I've had a few that the keyboard was stuck, and had to pull a little harder to get it off. When separating the plastics, there are a few hidden screws under black sticky pads, 4 at the front of the machine that I can think of right off hand, make sure you get these. Once you get the keyboard off, just take your time and be sure to remove all visible screws. Here's a link to some IBM service manuals. Couldn't find one for the 570, but the T series have the same basic design. Look over the manuals, they should be able to give you a better idea of hoe they come apart.

Problem with keyboard replacement in IBM Thinkpad R52


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.
