RE: DELL E5550 Keyboard Frame (Trim) + GPS Questions

Hi,

Thank you for the update.

The UK Keyboard lattice part number 2G1M5 does show up in our records, however that shows as a part which is unavailable for sale, Which means they are available at the point of sale.

Regarding the CPU, Yes the Processor is embedded on the motherboard, We cannot upgrade the processor in these models.

Thank you

RE: DELL E5550 Keyboard Frame (Trim) + GPS Questions

I'm wondering about US keyboard lattice? Do you have any idea about Part# ?


I've tweaked UK lattice tho, but still would be nice to know this as well.

Hi!

I've got the same problem: just bought an E5550 with the US keyboard and keyboard trim (frame).  I wanted to install a Hungarian keyboard, that is the same as the UK/German one, regarding its frame. Unfortunately it seems that I cannot buy anywhere this item...

If you have not yet damaged your frame in order to fit for the US/RU keyboard, we could do a swap, as your UK frame would be good for my HU keyboard.

Hi, Adam!

Unfortunately I've already adjusted the frame to adjust my new RU keyboard.


It's not that hard to adjust actually it.

To make reverse thing you'd need to remove small thingie where enter is and that's all I believe.


Here is couple of pics:

Hi!

Many thanks for the update. However, making an EU frame from a US one is not that simple. I'd not only need to remove and relocate the small horizontal bar by the enter key, but I'd also have to deal with the room between the extra key (í) and the left shift key. Unfortunately, I could not cover that hiatus with anything, so the keyboard would have an opening there, gathering smudge and filth. That I don't want to have.

Here are some pictures that illustrate the problem:

Hi again, Adam.


There are some people who might have keyboard frame you're looking for. I've just posted this thread on some forum, so someone might contact you for an exchange.
