I would like to have an all-black keyboard on my laptop. I want the built-in keyboard to look like this:

enter image description here

What is the best approach?

  • Try to remove the symbols?
  • Paint with black paint?

Has anyone done this? How?

The laptop is a compaq nc 6000.

Fine grit sandpaper or paint both work well.

What kind of paint should I buy? –  codeape Sep 29 '09 at 9:05

For the sake of re-selling in the future i reccomend, permanent marker or paint

so in the future can be removed to see the keys

I agree for re-selling you shouldn't do something too final. You could always buy a spare keyboard on ebay, and spray paint it flat black/sandpaper that way if you do sell it you still have an original. –  mosiac Sep 25 '09 at 13:03

You should be able to folks who make custom key caps, and just specify black blanks (should be cheap!)

These guys, came up on a Google search
