Converting from AZERTY to QWERTY keyboard on Lenovo Z61m

2008-08-28, 15:39 PM

Any ideas on how best to do this?

 

I can get keyboard stickers but they will look a little tacky or a new laptop keyboard however lenovo's website in Australia doesnt seem to list these parts for sale (The model number I would need is 39T0958)

 

I have already changed the setting in XP so that it believes that it is a US board

 

Your thoughts would be appreciated

Welcome to the forum!

 

Have you tried locating the keyboard that you're looking for on eBay? Z61 shares the keyboard with T6x and R6x units of the same screen size...that shouldn't be much of a problem.

 

Good luck.

Cheers,

George

Cheers for that George

 

Actually got onto IBM in Australia this morning and ordered a new keyboard to fit

 

Model number required was actually 42T3143
