5th gen X1 strange keyboard layout : Windows 10 Pro 64(Norwegian,Swedish,English, Finnish

Bit silly question, can someone recocnize this layout and where to find this layout.

Please look e.g. no1 key. its 1 and +. look question mark key. there is usually + 

 

It´s slightly annoying to browse some special characters.

Welcome to the forum!

 

That looks 99.5% like the Swiss layout I use everyday. But the "Y" and "Z" are misplaced. Swiss keyboards are QWERTZ, not QUERTY

 

Is this a 1st hand ThinkPad? Can you see if there are stickers attached to the keys?

No Stickers, on top of keys.  But anyway tis would be kind of quick and dirty fix.  Is there specific stickers made for this purpose?

 

Laptop is about 8-9 months old. I bought is when it was about 2 months old. For some unknown reason 1st owner had removed lots of Lenovo software from machine. I have tried to look from lenovo pages about machine inforomation, there is lots of details about warranty etc. but no infomration of what exact configuration regarding keyboard.

 

I have run Lenovo System update whihc should in my opinion find all missing drivers. But I havent find any way to get keyboard and language options to mattch 100% correctly.

 

Anywya situation is pretty ridiculous if machine was delivered with this condition from Lenovo.

 

Any idea how much replacement keyboard would costs?

To me it looks that the prev. owner swap the Y and Z keys from the Swiss layout.

 

The easiest would be to buy stickers in eBay or similar pages and "relabel" the keyboard, that would be the cheapest option. I don't have a 5th gen X1 Carbon, but in previous generations X1C's you had to buy the complete palmrest (which included the keyboard).

On the bottom of the laptop you will find a S/N number, use it in the "Parts Lookup" from the Lenovo Support page to get the exact hardware of your X1C, but I'm pretty sure is a Swiss keyboard with swapped Y & Z keys...

If you're using Win10 you should also install the Lenovo Vantage package from the MS Store as well. The language options you can set up in the Windows settings.
