AZERTY keyboard swop

by mikejkay45 / February 21, 2013 9:21 PM PST

Has anyone changed the AZERTY keyboard on a french HP Pavilion dv7-7190sf with a QWERTY one? or vice versa. Can it be done? Are they the same size with the same fixings?

We ran into that on Dells at the office. There is no electrical difference. It's the paint on the keytops. After the change you change the keyboard or language/region in Windows. Since that is well discussed I won't write about that.

Presumably the fixings and cables were the same?
