HP 830 G5 Upgrading Non Backlit Keyboard to Backlit

HP Recommended
Elitebook 830 G5
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Has anyone had any luck upgrading a non backlit keyboard to a backlit keyboard on the Elitebook 830 G5? I love everything about my laptop except for not having this feature and overlooked it not having it when I bought it.

Thank you Banhien, I will have to give it a try, thank you very much. Do you know what size/type of screw driver is used to loosen the screws that hold the keyboard to the motherboard?

It did work, thank you very much. Now I can enjoy a backlit keyboard. This was easy and there are a lot of Youtube's that show you how. IMG_0927.jpeg
