Identify keyboard layout

Stone

I bought a second-hand Hewlet Packard (HP) USB keyboard model KU-0316. Can you help me identify the keyboard layout? Is there any software that helps you identify keyboard layout?

I can't find the driver via Google or HP. No plug-and-play installation was done by Vista 32.

The keyboard looks European, containing Euro and pound symbol. There's also a German ß S symbol.

you don't need any specific driver; only change the language settings for your keyboard from :
control panel>country and language>keyboards and languages tab> click "change keyboard"

@romel RMS - model name is already in the question: HP KU-0316. There is no version number I can find any version number printed on the back of the keyboard.

@Nobus: German layout I tried, it's closest so far but no cigar. For example shift-2 makes a @ instead of ". And I can't seem to make the Euro symbol which is on the E key.

Could it be a US International Keyboard?
You should be able to get a Euro € by using Alt Gr+4

Looks like it might be a Dutch board
I have the same keyboard and its driver from HP, but XP not Vista

and it's impossible for HP to give a model it hasn't its driver, I think either you're typing the model by mistake, or your keyboard is not original HP,,,

anyways, try my keyboard driver from HP, may it will help

model: SK-2880

Don't think there's a special driver for this unless it has specific HP hotkeys not shown in the picture
The normal XP/Vista setup will work fine for this but as it's a USB board Windows won't identify the key layout automatically.

Thanks it was a Dutch keyboard. They are qwerty, not azerty as in (French) Belgium.. I should have known I lived in both countries ;)
