    Hello . Can anyone put me right. I have a samsung laptop with a new installed win 7 64bit operating system. I have just purchased a new keyboard. The original keyboard was a samsung notebook NP_RV510 A09uk but some of the keys are missing. That keyboard worked fine. I could only buy a new keyboard which was described as an RV510. After fitting it in the keyboard did not work properly. As an example if i enter Q key i get zaq. If i enter p i get +p. If i enter a i get zaq etc. Some keys work fine. I have tried to change the keyboard settings by reinstalling the driver, changing the settings in ease of access etc. I have also tried software such as Key Tweak but this did not work! Is there any way to remap the keyboard either by using existing win 7 settings or using a third party software download to rearrange the keys in the right order?
    Thank you for your help.

    If the hardware is wrong (substituting RV510 for NP_RV510), I suspect software isn't going to fix it.

    What happens using the onscreen keyboard?
    What happens when using an external USB or bluetooth keyboard?

    Hello plodr. Thank you for the reply. I have tried the onscreen keyboard and that works ok(but a bit slow)! I do not have an external usb keyboard but i have been thinking about getting on. I would find it easier to type with an external usb keyboard that an onscreen version.

    Use the onscreen keyboard, just for the missing keys, while you return the non-working replacement you bought. Then buy a USB keyboard.
