Hi BlaqueGhost, and welcome to BleepingComputer.

Unless the keyboard has specialty keys and comes with a CD for the drivers it should be a plug and play device. There are two different types, SP2 and USB. If the keyboard is a USB type you may need to enable it in the BIOS. Please make sure that your computer is shut off while you make the installation.

That makes a huge difference in understanding what you are referring to! I thought you were talking about a desktop where it isn't unusual to replace a keyboard.

Take a look at this site.

That's a great price for a laptop keyboard, by the way. Another reason it was assumed to be a desktop

Hi BlaqueGhost.
Glad to hear you're all set.
I was just about to post when I saw your reply.
I have the full 116 page service manual (pdf) for it if you're interested.
Shows everything from complete dis-assembly to bios configurations, etc.
If you want it, just pm me with your e-mail addy and i'll send it to you.
It's around 9mb in size.
