    Hi all,
    I've read a few threads saying that MSI steelseries and Clevo (P150/170) keyboards are fully compatible, although the FN+Keys are not the same:

    I have a few backlit clevo KB at home and two MSI GT70s but the Clevo backlit keyboard does not work at all in the MSI. It fits nicely into the chassis (without the metal plate) and lits up but no key actually matches: in BIOS it's pure mayhem, arrows are on the keypad, ENTER key is not ENTER, etc...
    Is there any trick here to get it to work? Special EC firmware to flash?

    Thanks for helping me out

    ;I can tell it does not work at all. I've been testing with 3 different clevo KB and none of them works
