buy new casing?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I have this adesso mechanical keyboard. Problem is its no longer working. Windows detects it but the keyboard doesnt actually work ( Had this problem previously. I had it refurbished.)

Basically wondering if there is somewhere I can buy a new casing and just use the cherry keys from this to save some money

It sounds like what you want isn't really just a new case, since putting the electronics of a non-functional keyboard into a new case will do nothing to render it functional, but rather, a kit to build a new keyboard using the switches from your current one.

Kits to build your own keyboard with Cherry switches do exist, but they tend to be quite expensive even compared to full keyboards, and of course, you'll have to do all the work of desoldering the switches from the old keyboard and then assembling the new one yourself.
