Hello,

Today my "del" died on my laptop.

How can I re-map my "del" key to another value? I dont want to use another keyboard because of one key dying.

Thanks for your help.

I have tried keytweak which was recommended in this forum. When I try to replace the "del" key with "f12" and "end" it didnt work.

Thank God for Last Best known configuration so I could reset the registry to the default settings so I could login with a ps2 keyboard.

Try RemapKey from the W2k(3) Resource Kit. The W2k3 ResKit Tools can be downloaded, but they need to be installed on an XP/W2k3 machine. After that's done, you can copy the remapkey.exe to your notebook and run it from there.

"Key remap setting are effective for the current user and for all the users of the system.
The new key layout is effective for Logon dialog or the command prompt.
You can setup automatic logon so that even if you lose the CTRL, ALT, or DEL keys, you'll be able to logon to the system."
