Hi,
Just about the best question i've seen on here in 10 months!!!

How to backlight the keyboard???? Well.... most people buy a customized keyboard from the manufacturer or elsewhere that specializes in them.
The other way is to customize it yourself. What you would have to do is pinch a power supply from the laptop motherboard with positive and negative wires, say the fan connector plug for example as they only run on a few volts and are 2 pinned, then you'd have to find an place to install a strip of LED lights and connect the wires, somewhere under the keyboard if you can in a place that's not going to damage the laptop or interfere with the electronics.
Put the strip as close to the motherboard as you can and cover the backside of the strip with sticky foam pads and don't put it near the processor or the northbridge because the get very hot and will melt the foam.
Depending on the layout of the motherboard and the components you are going to have some figuring out to do.
Some people suggest drilling small holes in the underside of the keyboard, don't do this as you can damage the membrane that controls the keystrokes.


Good luck with your project.

How do you turn on *** q550 backlit keyboard


If the letters & numbers on your keyboard looks like transparent plastic, then you have a back lit keyboard, but if the letters & numbers looks like they are painted on the key caps, then you don't have back lit keyboard.

let's assume that you have a back lit keyboard: Hold the Function [Fn] key and tap the Spacebar once. That will enable/disable the back light.

You can easily tell if it's a backlit keyboard because the spacebar will have a keyboard icon on the left hand side. If it has the icon, then your keyboard has back lights on it & it should work.
If it doesn't, then it's a hardware issue that a technician needs to fix.

Want to turn on back lights for keyboard to see while typing in dark


I do not believe the Probook 4440s has LED lighting for the keyboard. The key combinations Fn+F2 and Fn+F3 keys at the top of the keyboard control the monitor brightness (backlight). The keyboard is spill-resistant.

You need to attach an external keyboard with backlighting or a USB light to see your keyboard in a dim environment.

I wish that I could be of more help.

Dell Studio 1737 with Back lit keyboard but Cap Lock Doesn't Light, replaced Keyboard less than 3 months ago, light worked then and went out just recently.


I'd try a different keyboard and see if the caps light works on that - so you can confirm whether it's the keyboard, or computer.

Is there a keyboard back light??


I built a few computers and I never seen a connection on the motherboard for a keyboard back light, I would only assume that you are talking about an led light that's not working on your keyboard? Yes? Also do you have ask if that is what you mean? If you have a single cable from the keyboard connecting to your computer, then I would say I am correct. Hope this helps. Rick

Do the keys light up on the d6v-3227-cl laptop if so how


This laptop does not have back lit keys. If you want back lit keys, you must buy an external keyboard. These are some keyboards you can purchase and connect to your laptop with keys that light up- http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_i_0_16?url=search-alias%3Delectronics&field-keywords=backlit+keyboard&x=0&y=0&sprefix=backlit+keyboard

BACKLITE WON'T STAY ON


You can only change the back light level in the BIOS. Boot the computer and press F2 immediately. Once you are in the BIOS, set the back light level you want, then save and exit. When the computer comes back up, that will be your back light level.
