    I tried reseating the cables several times. But no luck. It's also not a windows problem I tried to remap all the keys with KeyTeak but some of the keys gave me the same keycode.

    I think the new Steelseries (win 8 ui version) is not compatible with the p150EM or Sager in general.

    Do you guys have any other suggestions to make this work?

    I can confirm the new Steelseries Win8 Keyboard does not work in the P150EM.

    Those keyboards need to be ground down on both sides to get it fit into the keyboard slot of the EM's. I advise you to get the standard backlit Clevo keyboard.

    Interesting I wonder if they have done something on purpose.

    I wonder if this keyboard will work with Clevo P370SM?

    Def looks better than the stock keyboard.

    Not in my 570WM even though it physically fits perfectly.

    Wonder why it isn't compatible.

    Clevo/sager or MSI have made a change to the way the keystrokes are registered. This could be deliberate or purely coincidental.
