I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

When in the office I need to connect to 2 large external screens to extend my desktop & also to duplicate for desktop training. The screens have vga & with my old PC could use vga to usb for each. It wont work on this laptop.  I can connect 1 screen with vga to hdmi.  Is there a different addapter I can use? There seems to be an extra small port next to the usb port which I think may be a mini display port.  Can I use both at the same time?  Its really important to be able to add more than one external screen.

There is, however, I highly doubt a standard user would ever want to do this. And you will 100% break your warranty, and quite possibly break your computer trying to replace it. It is your own responcibility if you do it. It is not user friendly to implement. But if you really want to risk everything, you can find the part online, but your risk. If you want, you can wait for a ACE member to answer your question.

Hi, It is much better and cheaper to buy this option now because backlit keyboard alone won't work, you need a motherboard which have ports for you to connect those lights. Buy this option now may cost you say $50, replace it later may cost you ten times or more and in many cases not-workable. Regards.

Hello,  I changed the OS on my Envy 15-j007cl to Windows 7 (64bit).  I've gotten everything to work save two issues: 1)  It's missing one driver (Validity Fingerprint Sensor); USB\VID_138A&PID_0050&REV_0060.  I've downloaded the driver from links I've found here, but it still shows as missing.  The fingerprint reader still doesn't work, but I'm not sure if this OS supports the fingeprint reader.  Does anyone know if the fingerprint reader is supported with Win 7? 2)  The keyboard backlighting no longer works.  This is actually more of an issue to me than the fingerprint reader.  Can someone tell me if this is due to a missing driver or something else? Thank you

 Hi @gruhls, Welcome to the HP Forums! I read your post on the HP Support Forums and wanted to reach out to you. With downgrading your HP ENVY 15-j007cl Notebook you might need to change the BIOS. I recommend to restore the BIOS defaults.You could restore the BIOS with this document selecting the reloading the BIOS default settings. That way it will look at the Hardware installed on the Notebook. You could try the Download here, under the Software-Security, as it is for Windows 7 and should work fine. Please let me know if this information helps you resolve the issue by marking this post as Accept as Solution, this will help others easily find the information they may be looking for.  Also, clicking the Thumbs up below is a great way to say thanks!    Thanks.

No, sorry none of the keyboards offered in that model series is backlit which means the motherboard has no place to connect a wire to light a backlight and none of the keyboards has the backlight cable/wire in any event.

Did you reload the drivers from Win7 into Win10 to see if the control function returns? If not then this would mean you can't use Win10 properly on your system and need to revert back to Windows 7.

I have a new E15 with backlit keyboard. I chose this model for that feature as I like to write in dim to no lighting. The backliting is off unless I hit a key first and then it only stays lit while using the keyboard.  I often pause to read my writing and ponder the next bit so by the time I'm ready to type again they keys are dark.Is there a registry hack that will allow me to extend the time before it turns off the lighting? Even one minute would be a great improvement. I've been through the power management settings and the BIOS. Nothing there.

 Hello there!  The problem is that, I think My Envy 13's keyboard backlit is not bright enough.  First photo is normal one, and one that in last photo is my Envy. And it's so dark that I can not see any backlight during the day time.  Dose everyother Envy 13 has poor keyboard backlit like mine? Should I visit HP service center?   

A:Is my keyboard backlit normal??

Looks about right. The backlight is not supposed to be something you could use as a flashlight it just sets off the keys so you can see them on a dark airplane.

Hello everybody, just purchased a Z50-70 and am pleased so far.However, the A**zon product specifications stated it would have a backlit keyboard (bought the 59424714). Up to now I have not been able to switch it on (Fn+space doesn't work) and/ or find any settings for it. Can anybody help? Thanks in advance!

Make sure all drivers are installed and up to date, also check bios settings just to double check everything is ok in there.

Hi,I have an HP Envy 15-j011dx laptop. I've always wanted a backlit keyboard for it, but was always told that it wouldn't be compatable. However, I was told that if my laptop had an empty Keyboard BL socket on the motherboard it would be compatable. I got around to opening it up, and I noticed that my laptop DOES in fact have the Keyboard BL socket open. I'd post a picture, but I don't know how. Here is the keyboard with a backlight that I found:https://www.amazon.com/Replacement-TouchSmart-m7-j003xx-m7-j010dx-m7-j020dx/dp/B00IJNX36S#immersive-...Anyways, des this socket mean that my laptop can be upgraded to a backlit keyboard?Thank you,Joe

Hi chazz101s , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
If you are planning on Booting with numlock turned on , this discussion can offer you options:
Press Win + R and type in RegeditNavigate to HKEY_USERS\Default\Control Panel\KeyboardRight click on the "InitialKeyboardIndicators", select Modify and changeValue data to 2. 
 
With the backlit keyboard control to ON bright , this may not be possible as per this discussion:
I don't think it is as simple as editing a value. The toggle of backlight/thinklight seems to be in the very low-level keyboard routines, that are almost certainly in the BIOS code itself. That would mean that the current state is either not saved anywhere, or saved in the CMOS.
 
Hope this help answer your query.

I bought a IdeaPad P500 nontouch screen. I thought it had a backlite keyboard. I tried Fn + Spacebar and I also installed a new driver from the lenovo support. I'm not even 100% sure this laptop has a backlit, but all the others on youtube. I've also read that sometimes the intel driver stops the backlite from working.  Any help?

A:P500 Backlit Keyboard

Is there a icon on your spacebar-key?There should be a icon on it.Press Fn + Spacebar at the same time. And hold it.Let me know if you see the icon. If you see it it's possible that the cable for the backlit keyboard is detached which is why it is not working.But you might want to wait and see what Official Support will say. I don't believe you need drivers for a backlit keyboard since I can use it in the BIOS.

So I got a great deal on a slighlty used X250, but after using it for a bit realized it did not come with the backlit keyboard.  My spacebar does not have the little light symbol on it and obviously FN + Space Bar does nothing.  My impression was that the X250 backlit keyboard came standard on all X250's regardless of configuration.  Any ideas?

Hi and welcome, GunnderIf you purchased laptop in the Lenovo Canada on-line store or similar, backlight keyboard should be an only one option for x250.

Hi all,a few days ago, presumably after some Lenovo (or Win 10) software update, i noticed that the backlit keyboard had just 3 modes left: off, low and high. The fourth mode, automatic, which was indeed available in the preceding days, was gone.It is no more listed in the Lenovo Settings app, and i cannot anymore choose it neither by using the Lenovo Settings app nor by cycling among backlit modes with fn-space.I add that in the device manager everything is ok, there are no yellow marks so the light sensor should be working properly: in fact, the screen brightness can still be set to automatic.Any idea on what could be done to get back the automatic mode? Maybe there are some regedit entries to be fixed, or something like that?Best regards and thanks in advance.

Is it possible to have the backlit keyboard turn on as the default?  (Acer Aspire M5)











Solved!
Go to Solution.

A:Backlit keyboard default setting

*bangs head on desk*
So sorry, I misread the unit. 
 
M5 does have Fn +F9 to turn on and off the backlight on the keyboard.
 
Regarding having it default to ON: 
I am not aware of a setting that will enable it by default, as it does add additional power draw, and will reduce battery life.
Leaving it as a setting for the user via toggle (Fn +F9) allows everyone to use the setting when they need or want to do so.
 
Again, sorry about the mix up.

I assume that removed both the keyboard and palm rest first to remove the LCD assembly and finally the LCD bezel.

The manual doesn't show a back lit keyboard, but on back lit keyboards there are two cables that will need to be connected.

When you first turn on the system, the backlight will flash on for a brief time.  If you don't see that either:
1. The system doesn't have a backlit keyboard (they're not standard on all models),
2.  The backlight is bad.
