Q: Converting from AZERTY to QWERTY keyboard on Lenov...

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 appreciatedMessage Edited by Runnamuck on 08-28-2008 08:40 AM

Preferred Solution: Converting from AZERTY to QWERTY keyboard on Lenov...

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

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.

I ordered a Dell Inspiron 13 7000 series laptop. I live in Belgium so the keyboard is AZERTY. Despite repeated requests to QWERTY keyboard, Dell refused to change it saying AZERTY is standard and cannot be customized. ANyway, so can I just pop out the keys and replace them physically? I know i can put stickers, but thats a last resort. 

A:Need to change keyboard from azerty to qwerty.

if you can get the keys off without causing any damage, please be careful. Some keys are not the same at all. The alphabetic ones can be changed.

I have a Yoga 3 14 with azerty keyboard and I want to replace that with a qwerty keyboard, a physical one not just to change Windows settings or anything like that. So my question is; do I have to do anything else besides get the qwerty keyboard and replace the current keyboard with it (yes, I'm fully capable of doing that)  or do I also need to do some BIOS confiqurations or something like that?

first off, install the OS. Then see if you can change it in keyboard settings. Try setting the keyboard to a French layout, instead of the default USA.

Hi, I recently purchased a Pavilion 15-bc203nd. This notebook has a AZERTY keyboard. This keyboard however has a strange/wrong layout compared to a normal azerty key board: a right CTL key is missing, the < key is on the wrong place, my return key is too small etc. See this picture as comparison:   Is it possible to get a notebook with a correct AZERTY keyboard, or is this just the way it is with HP notebooks and should I return it? Kind regards.

Hello, When looking for a replacement to switch from a US to an Azerty BE backlit keyboard, 2 different references appear:- NBL KBD,BE,DFN - 01HW247- NBL KBD,BE,CHY - 01ER957 What's the right one or what's the difference? Thank you for helping.

A:Several references found for a P51 Azerty Belgian keyboard: which one is the right one?

Two different suppliers of the keyboard.  Darfon (I think) and Chicony.  There may be some differences in exact "feel" or other aspects, but the base functions should be the same.

Brandnew HP Envy x360 with Belgian azerty keyboard The key 2 positions right to the spacebar, marked as <>\ does not generate those values, but generates the code for the CTRL key instead. This can not be a virus or other issue, as this is a "just out of the box" fresh system. I really suspect a "Bug" here in the testing of the azerty layout for this particular model The keyboard driver layout is the standard one provided with the OS by microsoft, called "Belgian Azerty decimal point"The operatings system is on the latest patch levelThe HP drivers are on the latest patch level I guess this must be declared as "a problem" and not an "incident" Cheers,Stefan

I was just in the middle of writing a rather large and important assignment (using Microsoft word 2008) for an English Class when a peculiar thing happened...

It seems as though whenever I go to type an apostrophe this - ? - pops up instead. It's the same for these other keys;

< = '
> = "
/ = ?
? = ?
[ = (nothing)
{ = ??
] = ? (lower case)
} = (upper case)

Can someone please tell me what is going on?

A:[SOLVED] !Please help! QWERTY keyboard problem

Hi. . .

I would suggest that you go into Device Manager and un-install all of the drivers related to the keyboard. Vista will re-install them upon re-boot.

START | type dev into the start search box - select Device manager uptop.

Expand the keyboard tree and un-install the drivers 1-by-1 until they are gone. Then re-boot.

Good Luck to you. . .

Thank you all.

A:Lenovo G530 keyboard qwerty belgium issue

Although there are two languages and several keyboard layouts in Belgium you would probably have a French Belgian keyboard.

Control panel > regional and language > keyboards and languages > general > installed services > add > and select either Belgian Comma or Belgium French as matches your keyboard.

Then remove the prior inappropriate entry(ies) and OK your way out.

I have a USB keyboard and wheel-mouse which take up two USB ports.

The PS/2 sockets for keyboard and mouse are therefore unused.

Can I just take the USB plugs off of these items and solder PS/2 plugs on to them?

I have tried using USB to PS/2 converters but they don't seem to work at all.

I always have to use an old PS/2 keyboard and two-button mouse to install XP, so it would be nice to be able to use the ones that go with the computer.

That way I can pass the old machine on to one of the children.

I'm interested in learning Dvorak and I'm wondering if it's possible to be a fast typist at both Dvorak and qwerty. In other words, if I find myself constantly switching between the two will I be able to maintain a good typing speed on both layouts? Or is the human brain just not meant to know 2 keyboards at once?

A:Can one be good at qwerty AND dvorak at once?

Totally dependent on your own level of skill and adapability.

It will vary between individuals to such a large degree, there is no way we could make any reasonable attempt to assist you.

The only clue is, that you have to ask does suggest a lack of confidence and perhaps a lower chance of success, but thats an outside view.

When it restarts, it should automatically boot from the hard drive.

I have seen a few posts that are similar to this, but none of them offered solutions and most were not for Win 10, so I figured I would make another. Recently, my audio will come out of my speakers and headphones when headphones are plugged in via the jack. Audio via headphones is incredibly distorted (dialogue completely unintelligable) and will still play through the headphones even when all sound is muted. My headphones are not detected in playback devices (Show disabled devices is enabled) and going to Control Panel>Realtek HD Audio Manager>Device Advanced Settings does not bring up the options for Classic or Multi mode, but instead only displays options for recording devices ("Tie up of input jacks" vs "Separate input jacks"). I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling 2 different audio drivers from Lenovo and tested 3 different headphones that connect via the headphone jack. I have not tried usb headphones, but would like to fix the headphone jack primarily. I hope someone is able to help!

Today while typing in notepad, the keyboard suddenly switched from Dvorak keyboard layout to Qwerty. Yesterday Opera did it. Before Opera did it, Open Office did it. When I close the offending program Dvorak is restored.

I am NOT using the language bar and do not have qwerty set as a default layout, Only dvorak.

Is anybody else having this problem and/or know how to prevent it?

A:win 7 64bit RC randomly switches from Dvorak to Qwerty

Try using ctrl-shift. If that causes your keyboard to switch that might be your culprit, not capricious randomness.

I use Qwerty and Dvorak key layouts and this switches between them. Tried to configure with the Regionalization control panel and that doesn't seem to remap this keystroke. It's definitely inconvenient for spreadsheet users.

I'm using Office 2008 on my MacBook, and I use the Dvorak keyboard layout.

A couple of days ago, Word decided that only the left half of my keyboard was Dvorak, at least for shortcuts. This means that if I want bold text (Cmd + B, which is Cmd + N on a QWERTY keyboard), it opens a new document.

It works fine if I switch to Dvorak + QWERTY commands, but this doesn't work in all applications, and is quite frustrating.

I've tried deleting Normal.dotm, but it doesn't seem to have helped.

Any ideas?
