    of which he was the most happy

    This old keyboard was a part of his new computer of which he was the most happy.
    (The source - my imagination)

    Is it possible that 'which' can denote 'keyboard' here?

    Thanks.

    It's a very odd sentence. "This old keyboard was the part of his new computer with which he was most happy." This is a bit better, but still not very natural.

    I thought 'proud' but wrote 'happy'.
