Hi

 

Welcome to community.

 

As your concern some keys of keyboard are not working. In order to recover this issue, please perform the following steps and check.

- My Computer-> Right click-> Manage-> Device Manager.
- Click on the device manager
- Double click on the keyboard
- Right click on the standard 101/102-key

Re: S205- Keyboard replacement: original or compatible type?

I've got a slightly different problem. My  S205 is badly damaged - the hinge (though that seems unfixable without using insurance), and keyboard are the main problems, and I'd like to fix the keyboard to get it closer to how it was when new.

However, I live in the UK, so the keyboards on eBay with the American layout are unsuitable. If anyone knows a website I could get a UK layout keyboard from that would be great.

It seems unlikely I will be able to get a proper replacement though, so I'm wondering if any other Lenovo netbooks use the same keyboard, and is a UK replacement available for them that would be compatible with my S205.

If that's not possible - can I pull off the keys, clean them and stick them back on?

 

 

 

Basically:

-Where can I buy a UK layout S205 keyboard? or

-Where can I buy a UK layout other model keyboard compatible with the S205? or

 -Can I pull off the keys, clean them and stick them back on?

 

Thanks.

What's the problem in using an US layout? In any case, i ordered the replacemente keyboard from China on ebay, it just needed less than 2 weeks to arrive in Italy, pretty happy of it by now.

I will eventually just give in and use a US layout version, I'd just prefer not to. I might cover up some keys with their UK versions if I can work out how to change the layout in Windows. I did find a UK version keyboard for the S206, which is likely to be compatible I suppose, but cost about £25 more than the American versions, which are guaranteed to work. Thanks for replying.

Did the keyboard you got look like this? Do all the buttons do what they say - i.e that print screen button at the bottom, ctrl in the bottom left instead of Fn. What does that QS button do?

Beware, the US keyboard does not fit the UK laptop. The US keyboard is to big to fit in the cavity and the screw holes are in the wrong place.
