Re: keyboards

Here are the two U.S. Keyboard options:

 

For use on all computer models in the United States 720244-001


Keyboard with pointing stick for use on all computer models in the United States (includes pointing stick cable)
720242-001

 

The Service Manual only lists backlit keyboards in the parts catalogue. 

 

Your specs also say it is a backlit keyboard. Try tapping f5 and see if the light doesn't come on for you. See page 12 of the Manual.
