New (not supported yet) key codes

Greetings!

I just bought an inexpensive Gateway laptop, Gateway NE56R13U. It has one of the most bizarre keyboard layouts I have ever seen but for the price I can't really complain.

I went to remap/disable the '€' and '$' keys. Neither one of them reported any value. I used a different key reporting tool it claimed the '€' is LAlt+NumPad 8, the '$' is LAlt + NumPad 6.

Is it safe to assume that since the key presses are being interpreted as multiple key strokes I am out of luck?

If you are in the US and want to see the keyboard it is at Target. Really, really weird. No Home or End keys, they are Fn + left arrow & Fn + right arrow respectively.
