Itronix ix250 keyboard backlight / possible IrDA question

Hi, I have two questions about an Itronix ix250 GObook.
 
First, I see settings in the BIOS for the keyboard back light, yet my keyboard never lights up, just glows in the dark (and i know you cant turn off something that glows in  the dark). Was it just an optional feature, or is my keyboard back light burnt out? If so, can it be replaced/installed?

Second, there is a little rubber cover over a small hole on the bottom middle of the screen,  and a little light (i think) that never turns on thats just above the HDD access light. Was there an optional IrDA receiver that went there? If so, could I install one?

Thanks,

-Dave

    Well thats like telling me once a capacitor blows on a motherboard, I need to get a new motherboard. I like to fix things :) I'm gonna look around for a schematic for the keyboard, if not ill just find the light myself and solder in a new LED :)

    hmmm... I wonder where I could get the irda for this? (not that i really need it or will use it, most of just a curiosity thing). It's also funny how the pdf manual for the laptop online doesnt say anything about it, yet in the downloads section on there site, there is an irda driver haha.

I think the button you mentioned under the display is a rubber plug, there is nothing behind it! and the small LED under that has never illuminated on mine and I have used it for a year now. Maybe an optional indicator of some sort. My keyboard glows in the dark too, and this is about the slowest 600 Mhz machine I have ever worked on.....I had an overclocked Celeron 300/450 that was way faster than this tank. Work PC.

If your keyboard glows in the dark,it never lit up.there are two types of keyboards one glows and one actually lights up with a blue back light as an option on the ix250(the bios has the option built in,if it has the keyboard that lights up or not).they were selling on ebay for about 50 bucks but you need an inverter board to go with it that screws on under the hard drive plate(mine came with a new plate) and a small power cable that hooks to the motherboard and a lot of patience if yours dont have the power cable already installed because you have to tear the whole thing apart to get to the bare motherboard to plug it in.I dont know about the infrared,but i do know they have a driver for it on their website so you may be right on that plug being the place it went.

No once a light burs out in a key board, then you can get a new key board, or ignore it.

Factory reseting


Are you referring to a lockout issue with W2K, or are you locked out of the laptop via a Bios Password? If it's an OS problem, worst case scenario, you can re-install the OS. If it's Bios Password issue, try logging in with the Factory Password 'ix250'. Good Luck!
