Probook 650 G1 keyboard replacement

HP Recommended
HP Probook 650 G1 (K0G92ES)

I would like to replace the keyboard (738696-211) with a backlight keyboard. I do not find such an option yet.

 

Is there a backlit keyboard available for this notebook model?

Does the system board has the additional slot required to connect the LEDs on that type of keyboard?

Does the backlit keyboard of HP Probook 650 G2 fit into this notebook and function properly?

 

The web page at https://support.hp.com/gb-en/document/c04078876#AbT7

 

states this:

 

 

Keyboard for 15.6-in models for use in Hungary (includes keyboard cable, backlight cable, and pointing stick cable)

 

 

However my keboard has no backlight (it is not indicated on any of the function keys, either) or pointing stick currently.

 

Could you help me please?

The Service and Maintenance Manual (click) for your ProBook 650 G1 says there is a backlit keyboard for your model, but lists a different top cover and touchpad assembly to be used along with the backlit keyboard. Whilst replacing the keyboard is listed as an end user procedure, the touchpad replacement involves more extensive disassembly and is listed as a service centre only procedure.

 

This doesn't appear to be an HP supported upgrade, so you would have to order the parts and take a risk that the upgrade is actually possible. Considering the age of the computer (it is somewhere around four years old) it may be more appropriate to save your money towards a new computer. Only you can decide whether the upgrade is worth attempting.
