Problem with keyboard replacement in IBM Thinkpad R52

\015 Hello.My keyboard in Thinkpad R52 was originally German adapted to work with polish language (stickers on keys) - FRU number of this keyboard is 39T0769. I've bought a new keyboard with FRU 39T0704, but after install I can't type certain keys, i.e. keys (t, y, a, s) works, but typing (8, 0, /, q, w, e, r, u, i, o,p, ], k,) has no effect on the screen, and so on. Supposedly this keyboard may be locking, but I don't know how this lock remove (if any)? Please help me. \015

Answers :

The keyboard you purchased (39T0704) is a US English keyboard. Change your input local in your "Keyboard" "Control Panel" to "EN English (United States)" and all your keys should work. As far as getting the English keyboard to work in German or Polish is very unlikely.
