770E Keyboard Replacement

#1 Post by Blender » Wed Sep 27, 2017 7:15 pm

Hey everyone,

I just got done physically cleaning my 770E because of the sticky palm rest. I had to use isopropyl alcohol + goo gone to get it off. After the cleaning was done the keyboard now does not work correctly. I let it dry for a month and the keyboard still does not work right.

So I'm guessing the keyboard got damaged because of excessive liquid. Now I need to replace the keyboard.

The only part of the keyboard that works correctly is the ultranav.

Will a keyboard for a 770X fit a 770E? Because I can't find a 770E keyboard for sale.

All 770 Keyboards should be identical. Just check the 770's HMM. I doubt the 770 is like the T4x series which had 50 million keybowrd variants.
Probably should be Thinkpad16by10.

Looking For: 386 laptop, IBM or not.

Thanks a lot Thinkpad4by3 , I found the part number for the keyboard I need from the HMM. It's much easier to search for the keyboard now that I have the part number.

This is great! :D
