    300 US for a keyboard?

    If they're identical keyboards then the key caps and retainer clips should be identical, you just have to be very delicate with things as they're not exactly meant to be removed.

    Seriously. :eek:

    Delivery, insurance through delivery, inspection by the reseller, the keyboard, then return shipping with insurance, everything one go. The keyboard alone, if my memory serves me right, not inclusive of installation fee, is approximately USD120 converted, this was like back in 2015 when I accidentally dropped something and broke the backspace key, which made it necessary to be replaced.


    I've done it, and I broke it. I don't have the pictures, but the butterfly switch (let's call it the bigger rectangle and smaller rectangle) The bigger rectangle had two portruding horns. The original one (keyboard A) broke both.

    In my attempt to remove the one from the keyboard (keyboard B), I broke off the right side. So one side still works, and I clipped in, and stuck it to the keyboard. You're right that its not meant to be removed. But since it sits and doesn't break off unless I wiggle it really hard, I guess its okay. So a clear sellophone tape, (when in doubt, tape it!) and I have best of both worlds, and USD300 saved.

    Thanks though.


    PSA: don't attempt trying this. Its just not worth it. I was bloody lucky on my first try.

    Get a keyboard off Ebay or the like and fit it yourself for great profit in this case...

    That model is not hard to work on which is one of its benefits.

    Maybe not how you would have preferred things to go, but saving yourself all that money is a win at least. :vbthumbsup:

    Hello.

    I bought a Schenker XMG 503 (P157SM) on EBay some days ago for a good price. Looks almost unused.

    It has a 4800MQ and a GTX 770m. So now i am searching for informations which upgrades for the GPU are possible besides the 780m?

    So i found this owners club and thought i should say hi to the experts. ;)

    1060 cards have been successful and would be a large upgrade.

    Yeah read about that. You need some special BIOS and drivers right? So will there be any later driver update?

    Last official BIOS i get for my Schenker XMG is the 1.03.05.

    Oh. And i am curious. Whats the difference between the P157SM and the P157SM-A?


    EDIT:
    I tested it with "Battletech". Got a crash. The Temperature of the 770m reached 95 degree. Maybe i should take a look.
