Hi, I'm the proud owner of a S10e Laptop with a Spanish keyboard I can't configure after setting the appropriate language in Control Panel (Windows XP) and Regional Settings. Any Ideas ?
Also I've tried to input the ASCII code for some characters but it doesn't work either

Ola ira and welcome.
To configure keyboard in Windows XP:
Regional and Language Options
Select Default input language at the top - more languages is installed via Add... button
You want to activate the Windows XP Language Bar if using different languages
- and maybe define a hotkey combination via Key Settings... in the same window.
To input codes for special characters on the S10e keyboard:
Activate the NumLock function via Fn+F7
Input special characters by holding down Alt and typing the number on the [789 uio jkl m] keys.
Swicth NumLock off via Fn+F7 before normal typing..!

Thanks a lot for your reply !
I actually could enter the character codes as you suggested but concerning the language conf of the keyboard I still can get to match some of the keys pressed with the character displayed.
I've tried the "chcp" windows command (I guess that changes the character set), I was able to change some keys, but not the way I expected
I'll keep trying and post any solution

Keyboard for Spanish can be at least two different layouts.
the key for ñ € and more move around depending on which you choose.
- you can make stickers to put on the keys that don't match.
And don't try to remove the keys on the S10e keyboard and place it different. It will end in tears.
