Searching for a Laptop keyboard

How do I find a keyboard for my laptop in your store?

The quickest way to find a part is to use our laptop selector box at the left hand side of the screen. First of all, select the Manufacturer and wait a few seconds for the box below to filter down the Range. Then select the Range, then select the Series and finally select the Model of your laptop. The model number can normally be found on the label underneath your laptop.

What happens if my laptop model isn't listed?

Unfortunately, this means we don't keep a keyboard for your laptop in stock at this current time.

Questions About Keyboards

Are the Keyboards you are selling made by the original manufacturer?

Whether Laptop Keyboards are original are not is a bit of a grey area. Usually the original keyboard inside your laptop won't be actually manufactured by the Laptop Manufacturer themselves, they will ask other companies such as Sunrex, Chicony etc. to manufacture the keyboards on their behalf. Here at Keyboards4Laptops we don't source the keyboards directly from the Laptop Manufacturer as they add on their own massive mark up. We buy them through distributors who source the keyboard directly from the keyboard manufacturers. As we aren't buying directly from the Laptop Manufacturer it wouldn't be legally correct for us to state they are original. But they do come from the same factories that make keyboards for the Laptop Manufacturers.

Why does the keyboard in your picture look different to mine?

Some laptops have a frame that separates from the keyboard. A frame is a plastic part that clips between the keys. Where a laptop has a frame, we will often advertise the keyboard with and without frame. If it doesn't mention the frame in the title this means it's sold without the frame so the picture may look different to how the keyboard looks on your laptop. If it says in the title something like "Black Frame Black", that means the frame is included.

What's the difference between a normal keyboard and a Windows 8 one?

When Microsoft moved from Windows 7 to Windows 8, they changed the Windows logo. So the only difference is the logo on the Windows key. Windows 8 keyboards will work fine on Windows 7 laptops and vice versa.

I can see a German / French / Italian / Spanish keyboard advertised, can I use it on my UK laptop?

Different countries have different key layouts. For example UK Keyboards are QWERTY, German Keyboards are QWERTZ and French keyboards are AZERTY. They keyboards are usually the same apart from the stickers on the keys. So for example you could buy a German keyboard if you were willing to remember that when you pressed Z you got Y etc or you were willing to resticker a few keys.

What happens if I buy a Keyboard and it isn't compatible with my laptop?

Our compatability lists are very accurate but occassionally we do find an odd mistake that needs to be rectified. If this should happen just click here to report the compatibility issue. The information will be e-mailed to us straight away and a member of our customer support team will get back in touch with you as soon as possible with details of how to return the item so we can get it exchanged for the right model.
