Hello, I have a new dv7-6c95dx and I am having the hardest time finding accessories for it. I was wondering if you could tell me if the Dv7 and the Dv6 have the same keyboard layout. I can't seem to find a keyboard cover for my Dv7 however, I have found several for the Dv6. I just wanted to know if the keyboards were the same before i made the purchase. Also, if you advise against purchasing the Dv6 cover for my Dv7, could you possibly tell me where I could go to find a cover suitable for my Dv7? Thanks

Not the same. Does yours have an enbedded numeric keypad to the right of the main keyboard? All dv7s have the numeric keypad but the pictures I am seeing of the dv6 are mixed. The pictures I am seeing of dv6 keyboards with numeric keypad show the same key layout as the dv7 keyboard so I would say that if the dv6 keyboard cover has a numeric keypad area you are likely OK, but these things have to be an identical fit. I am not seeing a cover for your model on ebay. You might contactt his seller:
To see if they know where you can get one.
